Speaker Dialogue
[Open Ext. It's a Wash]
(Greg is washing Mayor Dewey's Van with Steven.)
Greg Almost done! *sprays van with hose* Steven, get the hubcaps!
Steven Hubbing it up! *rubs hubcaps faster*
Greg Hub it good! This is a high-profile job.
Steven You mean cause it's the mayor's election-mobile?
Greg If we do this right, we might get political favors!
Steven I'm not sure what that is, but I like it! *grabs hose*
(Steven sprays the van with the hose and hits Greg by mistake. Greg hits him back, and they start to have a hose fight. They both start laughing, and the mayor walks towards them.)
Mayor Dewey Hey, hey, hey! I'm not paying for father-son bonding here! (Steven sprays him with the hose.) Universe! *wipes water off self* Control that kid. *points to Steven*
Greg *stands beside Steven* Steven! Hehe, I'm sorry, Mayor Dewey. Hehe, this one's on the house.
Mayor Dewey On the house, eh. *stares at the van and then points to Greg* I like the way you do business, Universe. *climbs into car and drives away*
Car siren Mayor Dewey! Mayor Dewey! Mayor Dewey! (Greg sighs.)
Steven *emerges* Political favors! (Greg notices Steven.)
Greg *picks him up* *noogies him* Ahh, you rascal! Enough with the hose fights!
Steven *laughs* Aw, okay. (Steven and Greg get splashed by some water, and look down to see a purple cat holding a hose.)
Greg What the?
Steven and Greg Whoa!
(The cat chases them around, continuously spraying them with hose water.)
Greg What is with this cat? (The cat then turns into Amethyst.)
Amethyst Haha! Got you guys!
Steven Amethyst!
Greg Uh, pretty cool, Amethyst.
Steven Really cool! I wish I could shapeshift like you!
Amethyst *ties hose into a knot* You could probably learn.
Steven Really?
Amethyst Sure. *pulls up Steven's shirt* You've got a gem.
Greg Whup! Magic stuff. Should I get out of here? Is there going to be an explosion?
Steven Oh, it's no big deal dad. *pulls shirt down*
Amethyst *shape-shifts into Steven* Yeah, it's fine.
Greg Aah!
[Trans. Int. Beach House]
Amethyst Hey Pearl. *shape-shifts into seal* Arp, arp!
(Steven laughs.)
Steven Do more!
Amethyst Check it out. (Amethyst shapeshifts into a wolf and Pearl stares blankly.) Aawwooo! *shapeshifts into Purple Puma* Raaa! *shapeshifts into a jay and perches on Steven's head*
Steven Whoa!
Pearl *walks over* Amethyst, you're overdoing it.
Amethyst Uh, chill it dude.
Pearl Just because you can shapeshift, doesn't mean you should.
Steven Can you shapeshift?
Pearl Well of course...
(Amethyst butts in and shapeshifts into Pearl.)
Amethyst Well of course I can, I'm perfect! *hits her butt* WOMP! WOMP!
(Pearl pushes Amethyst to the side and Amethyst tumbles away laughing.)
Pearl All Gems have shapeshifting powers, Steven. *projects hologram* We can turn into objects, we can change parts of our bodies or... we could do that. *looks at Amethyst who is still smacking her butt*
Amethyst WOMP! WOMP!
Steven I want to try it all!
Pearl Don't bite off more than you can chew, Steven.
Amethyst WOMP, WOMP!
Pearl Ugh! *goes outside and Amethyst turns back into herself*
Steven Alright! Show me how to change into a, uh, huge lion!
Amethyst Actually, for once Pearl is right. If you're gonna do this, you've gotta start with something easy.
Steven Like that cat you turned into?
Amethyst That sounds good. Now follow my lead. First, think of what you wanna be, and then, just shake it out. (Amethyst demonstrates for Steven.) See? Haha! Now your turn.
Steven Okay. *breathes in and tries* Caaatttt!
Amethyst Nah, you're too tense. Just relax and feel it. *eats potato chip* Bio-rhythms, yo.
Steven *presses fingertips against his temples* Feeeelll iittt.
Amethyst Ehh, if you're not ready, we can try later.
Steven No, wait! I can do it. (Amethyst shapeshifts back into herself and Steven starts "feeling it".) Yeah, yeah. HUH!
Amethyst Well, it was a good try. (A meowing noise comes out of nowhere and Steven opens his palm to see a cat finger.)
Cat Finger Rraow, rraow!
Amethyst *laughing*
Steven This is so cool!
Amethyst You should go show your dad. He's gonna freak out!
Cat Finger Rreow!
[Trans. Int. It's a Wash]
Steven Dad, I'm back!
Greg Hey, stu-ball.
Steven Check it out! *shows cat finger to his dad, and Greg drops his water bottle on Steven* I shapeshifted my finger into a cat!
Greg Whoa! Is, is that a thing you can do now? That's pretty... cool.
Steven I know, right! I'm gonna take this show on the road! *starts laughing*
Cat Finger Meow! Row! Reaw!
[Trans. Int. Big Donut]
Sadie That'll be a dollar 'o five Steven.
Steven Mm, okay. Here's a nickel. And a buck! *hold up cat finger* (Cat finger meows.)
Sadie and Lars Whaaat!?!
Sadie Oh Steven, that's adorable! (Sadie pets the cat with her finger, which starts to purr.) Are... you making it purr?
Steven It kinda does what it wants.
Lars Really? (He roughly pokes the cat and it bites him.) Yow!
Steven See what I mean? Bad cat finger!
Sadie Oh, I'm sure it just wants to play.
Steven *gasps* You're right! And he doesn't have any friends.
Lars *mockingly* Oh my gosh. It's just like you, Steven.
(Steven breathes in and conjures four more cat fingers, then laughs.)
Steven Huh haa!
[Trans. Ext. Beach Citywalk Fries]
Cat Fingers Rraaooow!
Steven Hey, Peedee! Whoa, you work the deep-fryer now? *slams fist on the counter* Make me some fry bits!
Peedee Steven, I take my job seriously, please use the actual menu.
Steven Give me the bits! *slams fist* The bits!
Fryman Alright listen, it'll be over sooner if you just give him what he wants. (Peedee sighs.)
Steven Whoa, hey, hey, it's not for me. It's fo' THESE GUYS. *holds up cat fingers*
Fryman What the?!
Peedee Uh, here's your... *looks at the cat fingers* ... bits. (The cats start to eat the bits.)
Fryman I can't look away.
Peedee Steven, that is freakish.
Steven No it's not. It's natural. *shakes fingers on other hand* Sha-ake... it... out! (The fingers on his other hand turn into cats.) See!
Peedee and Fryman Whoa!
Fryman You know who would love this? Your older brother. Yo Ronaldo!
Ronaldo What's up daa... *gasps, drops box, and pushes Peedee to the side* I've gotta take a pic for Keep Beach City Weird! *takes out phone and snaps picture*
Cat Fingers MEOW!
Steven What's that?
Ronaldo It's my blog. Keep! Beach! City! Weird! *does hand actions* (Peedee groans.)
Steven Can I see the picture? (Steven takes the phone and the cats whine in agony.) Yikes! *drops phone* Sorry guys. I guess cat fingers don't function well as... fingers.
[Trans. Int. Steven's House]
Steven Tsk, I'm just getting a snack! (Cat fingers whine and Steven pulls a sandwich out.)
Amethyst Steven! Need some help?
Steven Nah, i-it's cool.
Amethyst Oh gooood! See ya later then.
Steven Huh?
Amethyst We're taking the Gem Sloop out to sea to fight a living island.
Steven What? *drops sandwich* Uh, Amethyst, wait!
[Trans. Ext. Steven's House]
Steven I wanna go on the Gem Sloop! I wanna see a living island! WAIT! WAIT! *runs down stairs and to the dock* WAIT! (Steven runs into the water to catch up to the Gem Sloop.)
Pearl Steven!
Amethyst *laughs* C'mon, you can make it! (The cats meow when Steven starts to paddle and the Gems gasp.)
Pearl Steven, what's going on?
Steven Waah! I-it's nothing! I-i just turned all my fingers into cats!
Amethyst *snorts*
Pearl We have to stay and help Steven!
Garnet We can't. This is a tectonic emergency. We'll deal with Steven when we get back.
Pearl Amethyst, I blame YOU for this.
Amethyst Eh, that's fair.
Pearl Grrr! Steven, just try to stay calm!
[Trans. Int. Beach House]
Steven Enough! No more cat fingers! I want Steven fingers! ... And I don't mean little me heads on fingers, I mean my REGULAR fingers! (Steven breathes in and a spot on his head turns into a cat, then his arm turns into a cat.) Wha! Aahhh! Stop! (His foot turns into a cat.) Amethyst! (Various parts of his body turn into cats.) Pearl! ... Garnet! [Gasps] Dad!
[Trans. Ext. It's a Wash]
Greg (Hoses the ground while singing along to his headphone music and hears a bang) Hello? Who's there? (Cat-covered Steven crawls in.) We're closed, come back tomorooaaaah!!! (He sprays Steven with hose, causing the Steven and cats rolling back but the cats keep coming towards Greg.)
Steven *hardly audible* Dad!
Greg Huh? (Sees Steven's face among the cats and gasps) Steven?
Steven Dad! (Starts tearing up) Help! (More cats grow.) Eeeeer!! The cat fingers are taking over my body! (More cats grow.) Eeeeer!!
Greg Hold on, wha- I'll get you out of there! (A cat bites his arm and throws him to the side.)
Steven No! Bad! Bad cat fingers! (He steps in a puddle and the cats makes him jump to the roof.)
Greg Can't you make them go away?
Steven I tried, but it made it worse! (More cats grow.) Ohh, my life is over! I can't go on magic adventures! I can't even open the fridge! And I'll never get to have another water fight with you, Dad! Because these things hate... water! They hate water! Dad, spray me again! (Greg sprays him and he jumps down. Then the cats run towards Greg.)
Greg Aaahahahaaahhh! (Steven grabs side of the car wash stopping the cats in time.)
Steven It's not enough water! *gasp* Turn on the super-wash!
Greg No, I won't do it! It's too dangerous!
Steven You've got to! I'm a monster! I'm an adorable cat monster!
Greg (Starts tearing up) No you're not! You're my son!
Steven Dad! Please! Aahhh! (Cats engulf his body.)
[Trans. Int. It's a Wash]
(Greg flips three switches and presses a button, enabling the super-wash. Steven then crawls in. The jets spray Steven on all sides. He then goes through two waxers, and another set of jets. Greg rushes to the opening and picks up a hose, ready to attack any remaining cats.)
[Trans. Ext. It's a Wash]
Steven Dad. (Steven's clothes are all ripped.) We did it.
(One of Steven's fingers is still a cat, so Greg hoses it, while they both scream.)
[Trans. Ext. Beach House]
(Steven is sitting on the dock, and the Gems arrive.)
Pearl Steven! *climbs onto dock and holds his hand* Okay, let me see it. W-? Y-you got them to go away?
(Steven smiles.)
Pearl It just goes to show, always listen to me, and never listen to Amethyst.
Amethyst That's fair.
Garnet It goes to show, you should have a little more faith in Steven. (Pearl blushes.)
Steven Yeah, that would have been a total CAT-tastrophe!
Amethyst and Pearl (Sarcastically) Hahahahaha...
Steven But I'm feeling much better MEOW!
(The Gems groan.)
Steven Ehhh? What's the matter? Cat got your tongue?
Garnet Okay, that's enough.
(The Gems walk away.)
Steven Wait, I've been coming up with cat jokes all morning. You guys, I'm FELINE fine. Everything's PURRRRFECT! Oh come on! I'm just KITTEN around!
