- Garnet: We - Are the Crystal - Steven: Gems - we'll always save the day Steven: and if you think we can't All: we'll always find a way - that's why the people - of this world Garnet: believe in Garnet - Amethyst - and Pearl Steven: And Steven! [music]


Oh, right prison.

[Heavy footsteps approaching, door chimes]

I cannot believe you! Making a scene like that.

We weren't trying to make a scene! We were just dancing ? Connie? What have you done with Connie? What have I done? What have you done? You're the one that wanted to keep those organics from the Kyanite colony.

- I'm just the fool that let you.

- What? Now your little pets are chasing the pearls up and down the halls.

What were you thinking letting them loose in the ballroom? They could be anywhere.

- Bah! - Ah! Eee! Pink! [Mumbling]



Just get rid of it.

[Mumbling continues]


Pink White is very unhappy with you.

If this keeps up, she's going to take away your pearl.

I know.

I'm sorry.

Huh? [Echoing]

Why do you always do this, Pink? Huh? [Indistinct whispering]


Huh?! [Gems clatter]

[Energy rising]

No, stop! [music]


[Gasps, breathing heavily]

Oh, Connie, you you're here.



Can't exactly leave [Heavy footsteps approaching, door chimes]

I cannot believe you making a scene like that.

Whoa deja blue.

We didn't mean any harm.

I asked Steven to dance.

He wasn't trying to cause trouble.

What do you know about this, human? You think I've never been grounded before? "Grounded"? Blue, you gotta let us out of here.

We're gonna starve.

"Starve"? What is this? Another made up problem? Another trick, so I'll cave and let you out? Well, not this time.

You're not leaving this tower until you apologize for fusing at the ball.

- No.

- [Gasps]


What? I'm not sorry.

We finally have you back and you're worse than ever.

[Energy hums]

Steven! It's fine, Connie.

I'm not even sad.

But you're really dehydrated! Blue, Connie and I fuse all the time.

It's totally normal and fine.

Agh! In what universe could that possibly be fine? This universe! The crystal gems fuse all the time, too.

Blue, you gotta tell me where their gems are.

They didn't do anything wrong.

Oh! Pink! Your time on Earth has warped your sense of right and wrong.

Yeah, maybe it has.

Maybe Pink thought you guys were right to lock her in here when she messed stuff up.

But I know what it's like to have a loving family, and we don't do stuff like this to each other.

The crystal gems understand that I'm Steven, and they support me and Connie.

And you guys poofed 'em for sticking up for me.

That isn't normal.

That's enough! [Energy whirs]


This isn't normal.

How many times did you lock her in here? How many times did you make her cry? I didn't, I [Gasps]

And I'm doing it again, aren't I? [music]

And this is why you left, isn't it? [music]

You were right to leave.

I always thought that you were failing this world.

But if you were happier on Earth, maybe this world was failing you.

We never should have brought you back here! Your "family," your "crystal gems" are bubbled.

Let's get you all back in your legs and back home.

All right, it's safe.

[Food clatters]

Steven and Connie: Food! [Both munching]



[Upbeat music]


Good-bye, Pebbles.

Wish us luck.

I'm ready.

We've got friends to save.



[Electricity hums]

What are you doing? I'm taking back my friends! What are you doing, Blue? Take Pink back to the tower.

She prefers to be called "Steven.

" [Crash]

What are you talking about?! You can't keep bending the rules for her, Blue.

She has to set an example.

And we have to set an example.

If we bend the rules for her, we bend them for everyone.

Well, maybe you should.

Take them back to the tower, now! I won't.

Then I'll do it myself.


Blue?! [Gasps]


Ugh! [Grunts]


Steven, now.


[Both grunt]

[Orb chimes]

When we thought Pink was shattered, when she abandoned us, I alone was there for you.

And you would use your power against me?! [music]



[Gems clatter]

They're free.

Come on, guys.

You're not bubbled anymore.

- You can come out.

- Are they okay? [Heavy footsteps]

You'd hurt a fellow diamond?! Didn't we hurt Pink? She was suffering in silence for ages just like our gems, just like me! And I know you're suffering in silence, too.

[Energy hums]




Stop! [Grunts]


You don't have to do this.

Yes, I do.

This is what White Diamond expects of all of us from a thin flake of mica to the deepest, hardest stone we all must make sacrifices for the sake of our perfect empire.

Does this look perfect to you? [Sizzling]

My dad says if every pork chop were perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs.

And that means what? It means if you try to make this empire perfect, if you just wipe away everything you see as flawed you lose all the things that make you happy like hot dogs.

Or our Pink.

Uh [Crash]


Stop it, Blue.

Stop using your power on me.

I'm not! [Gasps]

[Heavy footsteps]


Steven, come on.

Grab the gems.

Let's get out of here.


I hope they're okay.

Amethyst would usually be back by now.

They'll be out for a good while.

They took a direct hit from me.

Yellow, we've got to get them out of here before White finds out about any of this.



Your legs are this way.


Don't worry, guys.

I'll get you home safe.

Even if we have to escape now, we'll find some way to heal the corrupted gems.

We can come back to Homeworld.

W-we'll still have the legs.

I don't know.

I don't know if White will ever see us.

We're almost there.

Here we are.

Hurry, get inside.

[Energy building]


You're not going anywhere.



[Both gasps]



[Legs clanking]


You've made a grave mistake.

Go to your rooms! Uh Which rooms should we go to? Blue, don't make her any angrier than she already is! We're busted.

Looks like this just turned into a face-off.

Amethyst, Pearl, Garnet? Please I think we're really in trouble.


What the heck is that?! [Objects whooshing]


Yellow, Blue did you have a hand in this? No way.

- White, that wasn't us! - We swear! Then who's that? Who cares! Knock her out! [music]


Who's responsible for this? [Hand ships whirring]


I always wanted to uppercut an upper crust! [Laughs]

BOTH: Bismuth! - You came! - Heck yeah, we did.

- We? - Of course.

You thought we wouldn't be here at a time like this? Steven: Lapis Lazuli and Peridot! [music]

- That felt great.

- Wasn't that cool, Steven? Check out the awesome job we did fixing up those hand ships.

Uh who needs thumbs? White Pearl: Very cute.

Glad to see we're having fun.

However, White Diamond has certain issues with your conduct that will need to be addressed before we move forward.

Steven, quickly use one of our ships to get home.

- Huh? - Blue: Yes.

You have another chance.

Take my arm.

Fly to Earth.

Yellow and I will keep White distracted.

Blue, Yellow Don't worry, Steven.

We understand now.

This way of living it must've been like t*rture for you.


Just go! Hurry! She's getting up! No.

No, I won't go.

Pink Diamond ran away from you.

Rose Quartz, my mom, she started a w*r with you.

But I don't want to run.

I don't want to fight.

I just want to talk.

We've come so far just to get White Diamond's attention, and now we finally have it.

If we can fix our family, we can fix everything! But in order to fix it, we'd have to admit that it's broken.

She'll never want to hear it.

But it's the truth! My mom back on Earth used to have so many rules for me to follow.

It was so overwhelming, and it made me feel miserable.

After I told her how I was feeling, things got way better between us.

She even let me come out to space to help Steven.

If White knew how unhappy she's made you feel, maybe everything would change.

What do you say, Yellow? Do you think White might actually listen to us for a change? It's worth a try.

Lend me a hand, will you, Blue? Okay.

[Hand ships engines turn over]

- Huh? - The ships! [music]

Steven, take a knee.


White, please.

All we want you to do is listen! That's it, Steven.

Come on, Blue.

[Hand ship beeps, energy hums]


That's it.

Come on, everybody.



Hey, White, I know I was in there with you for a second, but I barely got to talk to you at all.

There are so many gems that are hurting right now.

Even Blue and Yellow are hurting! You should hear what they have to say! [Gems clink]


This is it! [music]

We We we We need to talk! About us.

I've conquered so many worlds for the sake of the empire.

I do everything you ask, and I do it all perfectly.

But your very high standards put us all under a lot of pressure.

A Gem could crack under so much pressure.

We Diamonds may be hard, but we're also brittle.

White, we used to be close.

Don't you remember? When Pink would make us laugh All those silly things she did for no reason.

There was a reason.

She wanted us to be happy together.

But we weren't, and we're still not.

I know my purpose isn't to be happy, but I find it harder and harder to enforce your rules when they make me miserable.

When they make us all miserable.

White, please, why don't you let us all into your head? We could come up with a plan to help everyone.

You could start by helping Yellow and Blue.




Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! [Cracking]

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Aaaaaaah! [Powerdown]

[Eerie music]

What?! Guys?! [Whooshing]





Ah! [Thud]

We gotta go! - Whah-aah! - Aaaaah! [music]

Peridot, over there! [Crying out]

BOTH: Steven! Grab on! [Clinking]


No! BOTH: Steven! [Adventure music]

Ah! Ah! [music]





Amethyst! Please reform.

I need you.

Amethyst, can you hear me in there? Everyone's falling! We can save them.

Together! [Resonating]

[Tender tune plays]



Don't worry.

I'm here for Uh What just happened? Mmm Holy smokes! I'm smoky! Steven, you beautiful genius.

You pulled Amethyst out of her Gem through fusion? [Gasp]

Pearl! Gotta throw Steven Don't worry about me.

"Owl" be fine.



Come on, Pearl, dance with me.


Well, what do you know? It's Rainbow 2.


Now, this is a fine mess we're in.


That won't do.

Pbbbbbt! [Zip!]

Rainbow Quartz powers, activate! [Whoosh!]


Ah, yes.

Now that's two stones with one bird.


Wow! Nice form, Pearl.

Oh, [chuckle]

thank you.

I'm particularly excited about the jacket.

Aah! Steven! We fused! Are you guys okay? Almost.

Garnet, we're up against a giant robot.

We need your help.

Please come out.

I'm here! I love you! [Clink]


[Ethereal tune plays]




[Distant rushing]



Awwwwwwwww Yeah! [music]

You better step off! Chillax, my dudes.

Your rockin' pal Sunstone is holdin' it down.

- Wow! - Holy - All right! - Unbelievable! - Oh, you better believe it.

- Okay! Sunstone, what are we gonna do? White Diamond's never going to listen and she's never going to let us leave.

If she won't listen, we'll make her listen.

- And how are we gonna do that? - I know she's in there.

We'll bust into her head and change her mind.

ALL: Right! Let's take that bully down! But remember, kids: If you ever have to deal with a bully, be sure to tell an adult.

Oh! Come on! Ally-oop! Kids, don't try this at home.

Ha! Bungakowa! Ah! Yeah! [Grunting]

You can do it! Believe in yourself! Always.


your best! [Beeping rapidly]

[Baritone beep]



Oh, no! Wah! Owwwwwww! Oof! - Agh! - Ahh! No dice.

- We need to be bigger.

- Then let's fuse.

All four of us.

It's the only way we're gonna get up to her head.

- I'm in! - I'm in, too.

Then it's decided.

It's time to form Obsidian.

[Ethereal tune plays]

[Bright hip hop]


- Huh? - Whoa! [Sinister music plays]




[Flames crackling]



Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! They're hu-u-u-u-ge! [Crash!]


Hunh! [Suspenseful hip hop]

Uah! Guys, we've gotta do something to keep those hands off of them.


But, first, I made you a little somethin'.

My own sword? It's perfect! Let's show White Diamond we mean Bismuth.


Grab on.


Time to take this thing apart! [Scraping]

Set your eyes on me, Homeworld! I, Peridot, have returned, not as your servant, but as your savior! I rule the skies! [Crumbling]

Roh! Wh-wh-whoa! [music]




Try and catch me, you enlarged, bipedal housing unit! Whoa! Ah! Lapis! Bismuth! Ahhgh! [sigh]

Aah-aah-aah! Hold on! I've got ya! Whoa-whoa-oa-oa-oa-oa! [Grunting]

Whoa-whoa-oa-oa! Ooh.

Oof! Ah.

Aah! Whoa-ah! Aaaaah! [Clang]




Whoa-oa-oa-aah-aah-aah! Ah! Ah! Thanks.


Heads up! I've got this! [Resonating]






Ahh-aah! I'll let you take this one.












[Thud, crumbling]


[Wind whipping]

Anh! Guys! Connie! Keep going! I'm right behind you! There! We can get inside through the eye.

Come on! [Melancholy tune plays]


Hurry! [Crash!]


Whoa-ah! [Crying out]

Huh! [Smash!]


[Wind whipping]

[Ethereal, resonating tune plays]



White Diamond.

Oh, Starlight, what are you doing, crawling in here? You want your legs back? You want your planet back? Surely, you can understand why I can't let you leave.

Look what you did to yourself last time.

White Diamond, my name is Steven Universe.

I'm here to Aah! My, my.

We've been causing quite a scene, haven't we? What have you done to them?! They're Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Poor Yellow.

Her impurities absorb all the blue in her light.

She's so strong but so weak, when it comes to Blue.

Ah, and Blue her impurities soak up all of the warmth in her spectrum.

She thinks she needs you, Pink.

As for me, I'm certain I don't need you.

After all, I'm every color of the light.


But you're a part of me.

The part I always have to repress.

What?! Dude, what is she even talking about? This is nonsense! [chortling]


Hello there.

Your new friends are so funny.

Is that what they're supposed to be, funny? [Sinister chord strikes]


Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! [Gasping]

Hey, White dirtwad! [pants]

That all you got?! Huh? [Crackling, resonating]

Oh, no! [Crying out]

Leave her alone! [Resonating]

Aggggggh! [Resonating]

Arrrrrrrggggggghhhhhhh! Stop! [Resonating]

Ah! Ahh! Ahh ahh ahhhh! Ahhhhh! White Diamond: It's a pity, the way you bring out the worst in others.

See how you've encouraged their deficiencies? It's written all over their Gems: insecure, dependent, obsessed.


Oh, no, no.

Guys! Come on, snap out of it! [bitterly]

Please stop helping them.

You'll only make things worse.

That's what you do.

I make things better.

Here [snaps fingers]

Oh, thank you, White Diamond.

I feel excellent now.

[Suspenseful music]

Oh, thank you.

How generous of you.

Thank you, White Diamond.

We feel so much better now.

I feel excellent.

There we are! I've removed their flaws.

Now, there is nothing to hinder my white light from sparkling through them.

I'd rather not spread my uninhibited self so thin, you know, but you've made it absolutely necessary.

Now, the impurities you've encouraged in them are gone.

Now, they are brilliant! Now, they are perfect! Now they are me! [Resonating]

You're wrong.

Please, just listen to me! My friends don't need to be fixed! They're fine the way they are, flaws and all! There you go again.

Do you understand why you defend their flaws? I know why, Pink.

You like surrounding yourself with inferior Gems.

What?! You enable their terrible behavior, so you can be the best of the worst.

That's not true! And, even if it is even if it was, y-you're talking about my mom.

You're not talking about me! [Cackles maliciously]

Your "mom"? [Continues cackling]



Guys, I'm here! Huh? Pearl? Connie! Well, what have we here? It's another one of your pets.


Wait! Whoa! [Grunting]

Huh? Aah! [music]

[Sinister music]

[Muffled protest]

Let her go.

These worthless Gems weren't enough, were they? See how you surround yourself with lower life forms? You've smothered yourself in them.

It feels good, doesn't it, Pink? Dulling your power, hiding your face, blaming everything on someone else.

You became Rose Quartz to deceive your pathetic friends.

And, now, you've improved on that, because you're even deceiving yourself.


You're wrong! I'm not my mom! But don't you know things about her that you couldn't possibly know? I-I've just been connecting with her.


My powers, they they help me connect to others.


[Sinister music intensifies]

I-I'm not her.

I'm just feeling her feelings.


[Sinister chord strikes]

Isn't it obvious? Even though you've embedded yourself in that human child, your light can't help shining through.

You know you're in there.

You've known it all along.

Stop cowering inside your Gem.

You can hide from yourself, but you can't hide from me, Pink.

[Muffled protest]

Don't listen to her, Steven! She's just trying to mess with you! [music]

Steven! [Grunting]


Now, Starlight, [Grunting]

this has gone on long enough.


[Suspenseful music climbs]


It's time to come out, Pink.

[Suspenseful music climbs]

No-o-o-o-o! [music]

Connie: [distantly]


Steven, please.

- [High-pitched tone whines]

- [sobbing]

Steven, wake up.

Look at me! Please.

[Tone continues whining]

Steven? Steven! [Static crackling]

What? No Where? Where Where's my ? [Resonating]

[Ethereal tune plays]



[Voices whispering]



[Low tone humming]



Anh! [Thud]

Steven! No [sobbing]

Please, I I need I need What is this? Where is Pink? She's gone.

What did you say? Answer me! She's go-o-o-o-o-o-o-ne! [Growling echo fades]

[Tone buzzes, stops]

[Crying out]

[Bright flourish plays]

[Suspenseful music]

Where do you think you're going? [music]

- Help - Steven! [Grunting]

Hold on! [music]

Don't you dare take one more step! [echoing]

One more step! That's enough! [Resonating]

Ahhh, you little [Zap!]



Agh! Don't you raise your shield at me! I only want you to be yourself! If you can't do that, I'll do it for you! [Resonating]



Aaaah! [Thudding]


No, stop.

You're hurting them! [Thud]

Ahh! Ahh! [pants]

[Suspenseful music]




[Laughing warmly]

[Both laughing]

What are you doing? Pink! Why are you laughing? [Laughter]

[Ethereal tune plays plays]




Steven! Oh! Are you back together? Are you you? Yeah! Yeah, I'm me! I've always been me No! You are Pink Diamond! That is Pink Diamond's gem! You do not look like this! You do not sound like this! You are not half human, you're just acting like a child! I am a child.

What's your excuse? [Laughs]



What's happening? What is this? What's wrong with them? They're turning pink! I don't understand I'm in control, I [Gasps]

Something's wrong with me! No! [music]

Both: Guys! Steven Are you okay?! Uh, what happened? I think Steven got through to her! Aah! - Aah! - Ha! Listen up, you nail heads! The Crystal Gems are here to huh? [Laughter]

Steven! [Laughter]

Are you okay? Are you hurt? Oh, look at White.

She's shakin' like a piece of chalk! Wh-What happened Where am I? Welcome back.

What is this?! I feel ridiculous.

Yellow, Blue! [Gasps]

She's off-color.

This can't be happening! I can't have a flaw! I'm supposed to be flawless! If I'm not perfect, then who am I?! If you're not Pink, then who are you?! Who Who is anyone?! Ya know, if you just let everyone be whoever they are, maybe you could let yourself be whoever you are, too.

But I'm not supposed to be like this! I'm supposed to know better! I'm supposed to be better! I'm supposed to make everything better! You can! But first, you're going to have to leave your own head.


Sadie: And if we look at a place Well, baby, that's okay I'll drive us into outer space Where we can't hear what people say I know I don't have a plan I'm workin' on that part At least I've got a van So let me drive my van into your heat Let me drive my van into your heart Let me drive my van into your heart Let me drive my van into your heart Let me drive my van into your heart [music]

[Cheers and applause]

Lars: Welcome home, guys.

Lars isn't going to know what to say! Rhodonite: Shh! Give 'em a moment! Lars look at you! You're You're a space pirate! Look at you! You're a rock star! - [Laughs]

Well - [Laughs]

I think it suits us! Yeah.

Me, too! - [Crowd chants]

One more song! - Ah! Oh, I gotta get back on stage! Oh, no! I totally crashed your show! [Chuckles]

You wish! That honor goes to Steven.

Sorry, Sadie! I'll make it up to you! Hey, that's not a bad idea! Hey, Beach City, we're not done yet! I'd like to welcome my friend and yours to the stage Steven Universe! [Cheers and applause]
