Ringtail> Noooo! Stop!
Ringtail> I can’t stand it! I should’ve been the King of Late Night! [grunts]
Guard> Oh gimme a break, Ringtail. I know you wanted Litterbin’s job, but there’s just one differance between you two. He’s wild and crazy, and you’re just crazy. [laughs]
Ringtail> Crazy?! I was a number one comedian! I cracked everyone up!
Guard> Oh yeah, ’till you cracked up. [laughs] Now pipe down!
Litterbin> Stupid kat trick number one!
Guard> Now are you happy, Ringtail? TV’s off! Ringtail? [gasps] It can’t be!
Ringtail> Heeeere’s Ringtail!
Old Lady> Well it’s about time! I’m gettin’ liver spots out here! I’m gonna complain to the Megakat Auto Club! You shoulda been here an hour ago!
Jake> Uh, we got here as soon as we could ma’am.
Chance> Sounds like your battery’s dead.
Jake> No problem, we’ll charge it right up for ya.
Chance> Supercharge it right up!
Jake> Chance. Now try it, ma’am.
Old Lady> Whoa!
Chance> Hey, she didn’t even thank us!
Jake> Yeah, she’s probably home by now. Which is where we should be. I’m gonna miss Litterbin!
Chance> Eh don’t worry, Jake. I know a shortcut.
Jake> Aw, Cha-a-a-ance!
Enforcer Dispatch> Be on the lookout for Lenny Ringtail, escaped lunatic. Ringtail is extremely dangerous. Approach with caution.
Enforcer> Hey, I thought I saw somethin’! Back it up! Eh, nothin’, keep goin’.
Ringtail> [chuckles] Look at all this junk. Hey, this kat-in-the-box kinda looks like me.
Shopkeeper> Hey! Hey, how’d you get in here? We’re closed!
Ringtail> The door was open! What’s this?
Shopkeeper> Antique, but not for sale! Plenty of other curios to choose from!
Ringtail> But not ones with my face! Tell me more about it.
Shopkeeper> [scoffs] Belonged to ancient jester named Madkat. He went crazy when other jester took his place.
Ringtail> I can relate to that. [chuckles]
Shopkeeper> Madkat was locked in a dungeon, but he vowed revenge against the jester who took his place. And the king, queen, and knight who imprisoned him.
Ringtail> Oooh! I’ve just got to have this thing!
Shopkeeper> Hey! I told you! It’s not for sale! Hey, are you crazy?!
Ringtail> Something like that! [cackles] You’re alive! I MUST be crazy!
Kat-In-The-Box> Oh you certainly are! And so was I. I guess madness just brings out the best in us! [chuckles] Come join me, Ringtail, and Madkat will live again! For revenge against ALL our enemies!
Madkat> Time to take center stage! [laughs]
Litterbin> Now here’s one of the stupidest letters I’ve recieved in quite some time. “Dear David, fess up. Aren’t you one of the SWAT Kats?” Please. I hate flying! I’m so scared if heights I need a barf bag just to get into an elevator!
Jake> [laughs] Oh this guy really cracks me up!
Chance> Hey, easy buddy. Don’t cough up a hairball.
Madkat> Very funny. You’re the jester who took my place! I’ve been waiting years for this moment!
Jake> [laughs] Did you see that?
Chance> Yeah, it’s not as funny as a Scaredy-Kat ‘toon.
Jake> Isn’t Lenny Ringtail the crazy comedian who escaped from the loony bin tonight?
Feral> Kat’s alive! Ringtail’s announcing his whereabouts on TV! He’s even crazier than I thought!
Litterbin> Fun’s over, pal. Get him outta here!
Madkat> But why? We’re having such a ball! Right folks?
Feral> I want choppers at Megakat Broadcasting Company on the double! And pick me up on the way!
Madkat> But where are ya going, folks? The show’s just beginning!
Chance> Think Feral’s gonna be able to handle that crazy kat?
Jake> No way! But the SWAT Kats can!
Feral> This is Commander Feral! Let him go, Ringtail!
Feral> I’m warning you, “Madkat,” put him down!
Madkat> Sure, Commander! Waaaay down!
Razor> Grappling hook deployed!
Litterbin> Huh?! [sighs] Whoa!
Feral> Get the nets on him!
Madkat> So much for the jester!
Madkat> So, I’ll collect the king, queen, and knight, and then my revenge will be complete! [chuckles]
Razor> Gotcha! Aww, not again! Aw, crud!
T-Bone> Yeah, somehow I don’t think Feral’s gonna believe it was an accident.
Madkat> Oooh, you guys are in big trouble now!
T-Bone> Why you little-!
Razor> How’d you miss him, hotshot?
T-Bone> Very funny.
Callie> [gasps] SWAT Kats!
Callie> But what does he want?
Razor> I dunno, Miss Briggs, but he won’t wanna meet up with us again!
T-Bone> Yeah, ’cause next time we’re gonna play hardball!
Madkat> Oooh, I’m so scared! [laughs]
Ann> Even as we speak, Megakat Broadcasting executives are scrambling to find a replacement for David Litterbin. In the meantime, several guest hosts have been named.
Chance> Yeah, they should just show Scaredy Kat ‘toons late at night.
Madkat> Well, he’s not on the tube, Annie, but he IS on the box!
Madkat> Now I have the jester, but my revenge won’t be complete without the king, queen, and knight. And now, I’m off to catch the king!
Ann> He’s completely crazy. Megakat City has no king. [gasps] Just a mayor!
Chance and Jake> Mayor Manx!
Callie> Mayor Manx?!
Manx> Ah, nothin’ like a quiet round of golf! No distractions. No phone calls. No one to tell you to fill in your divets!
T-Bone> Yes, Miss Briggs?
T-Bone> We’re on our way!
Razor> Where is the Mayor?
Callie> Where else? The golf course. I’ve alerted Commander Feral, but I’d feel alot better knowing you guys were there.
T-Bone> Roger that, Miss Briggs.
Shopkeeper> Commander! I want to report a robbery!
Feral> Inside. Ask for Lieutenant Steele.
Shopkeeper> But it’s very important!
Manx> Ahh. Oh, yes!
Madkat> Nice shot, king! How ’bout trying it again, for higher stakes? Like your kingdom?
Manx> N-now keep your distance!
Madkat> Oooh, I’m so scared. Now, shoot!
Manx> Anything you say!
Madkat> Bravo! But I still win.
Manx> But why?!
Madkat> Because my ball is bigger!
Feral> Better get in, Mayor! Fast!
T-Bone> Looks like Feral’s really on the ball today!
Razor> [chuckles] Bring us around, buddy. I wanna make sure we finished the job.
Madkat> I’m a tough act to get off the stage! [laughs]
Manx> Feral, I’m getting out of here!
Madkat> Join the jester, king!
Manx> Help me!
Madkat> And now to capture the knight!
Feral> Come and get me, your crazy sicko!
Madkat> (he says something before this, too, but I can’t quite make it out.) It’ll be my pleasure! Just le me get a set a’ wheels! [laughs]
Razor> About to clip his tail! Aw, crud!
Madkat> This should be good for a laugh!
Madkat> Nice try, SWAT Kats, but I have a few tricks up my sleeve, too! Mind if I cut in? [laughs] Welcome to your new home, knight! Now only the queen remains. So you want some yo-yo action, too? [laughs] I like this game! Why don’t we see if you can save the queen?
Razor> Well if Feral was the knight, and Manx was the king, then the queen must be-
Callie> SWAT Kats, come in! What’s happening?
Razor> And unless I missed my guess, you’re next Miss Briggs.
Steele> I guess that leaves me in charge of the Enforcers, Deputy Mayor.
Callie> Well just what do you intend to do about Madkat, Lieutenant Steele?
Steele> If that crazy fool shows his face again, he’ll be arrested!
T-Bone> Good luck.
Steele> What are these two doing here-
T-Bone> We’re Miss Briggs’ bodyguards.
Razor> Sorry we’re late. I, uh, had to get my seat put back in.
Sergeant> Lieutenant! When are you going to see that kat who got robbed? He’s been waiting all day.
Steele> Tell him to fill out a form!
Shopkeeper> Legend says jester’s power is in his fool’s cap. Destroy it, and-
Steele> This kat is obviously a crank!
Callie> You have any better ideas, Lieutenant?
Madkat> The queen is mine! [cackles]
T-Bone> To the roof!
Callie> Let me go!
Madkat> You’re going to join the king! [laughs] You lose! You didn’t save the queen!
Madkat> That wasn’t funny!
Razor> Roger that! [yelps] What the?!
Madkat> Mmm, tasty!
Madkat> Ladies and gentlekats, then there was one! But I’m game! Why don’t we let a little roll of the dice decide who wins this fight?
T-Bone> Why don’t we let a little laser decide?
Feral> Looks like the game is over, Ringtail.
Ringtail> I’d be crazy to give this up!
T-Bone> What’s this? We’re seperated for one minute and already you’ve got a new partner?
Steele> Commander! The SWAT Kats have practically destroyed headquarters! You two are gonna pay for this!
Feral> Button it, Steele! They also saved my life. Not that you care.
Callie> And my life! And I do.
Manx> Don’t you worry, Feral. I’ll just raise taxes to rebuild your building, and your jet, of course, SWAT Kats.
Litterbin> Kats alive! I’ve got a show to tape! And no guest star, unless… My audience must think I’m crazy to have you on the show.
Ringtail> Hey, you’d be crazy not to! After all, I’ll soon be writing a book called “Madkat and Me!”
Chance> I can’t believe it. That loony Ringtail is gonna make millions.
Jake> Yeah, he’s crazy. Like a fox. Hey! What’re you doing?!
Chance> Hey what do you think? I’m watchin’ Scaredy-Kat. Now THIS is funny! [laughs]
