Speaker Dialogue
[The episode begins with Connie walking to the Beach House and knocking on the door, only to be greeted by Steven who is apparently bald.]
Steven Lovely day, isn't it?
Connie Yeah, I guess.
Steven Ya know, uh, my dad told me I should expect this at some point, but I didn't think it would happen overnight.
Connie Right, yeah.
(Steven gets a little stressed that Connie is not noticing his apparent baldness.)
Steven Connie, I'm bald!
Connie Oh. What happened?
Steven Nothing. [Takes elastic cap off] It was just a joke.
Connie Oh, okay.
(Steven notices Connie's lack of enthusiasm.)
Steven Hey, are you okay?
(Pearl and Garnet warp into the beach house.)
Pearl Steven, Connie! I hope you two are ready for today's special lesson.
Connie Oh, no, was I supposed to bring something?
Garnet Just yourselves.
Pearl Garnet is going to sit in. She's very excited to see you fight as Stevonnie.
Connie Oh! Right! Fusion training.
Garnet I made a sign. [Pulls up sign] Woooop. This side is for both of you, and this side is for Stevonnie. It's two signs in one. A fusion sign.
Steven [Laughs] Fusion joke.
Connie [Laughs weakly]
[Transition to the Ancient Sky Arena.]
Pearl Ready, kids?
Steven Yes, ma'am! ... [Elbows Connie] Connie!
Connie -Yes, ma'am!
Garnet Ste-ven! Con-nie! Whoo!
Holo-Pearls Initiating fusion dance.
(The Holo-Pearls begin to dance in robotic ways to form one big Holo-Pearl.)
Holo-Pearl Come at me, children.
(Steven and Connie dance to begin fusion.)
Stevonnie Let's dance.
Pearl Let us... begin!
(The fight begins. Holo-Pearl attacks first, and the dualists create exchanges in defense and offense until Stevonnie jumps and floats to a nearby pillar.)
Stevonnie Huh? [Chuckles]
Pearl [Gasps] Oh!
Stevonnie All right! Stevonnie's got floating powers! Time to finish the job!
(Stevonnie wall-jumps off the pillar and shoots toward Holo-Pearl. However, Stevonnie starts to hallucinate Holo-Pearl as a human child, startling Stevonnie.)
Stevonnie (Connie) Huh? I'm sorry!
(Stevonnie lands and bounces off the ground after exiting the hallucination.)
Pearl [Gasps]
Garnet [Gasps]
(Stevonnie unfuses as they continue to fly across the ground.)
Garnet and Pearl Steven! Connie!
Steven W-what happened?
Connie Mmmuh! [Groans]
(Connie runs off.)
Steven Connie, wait!
(Steven looks for Connie and finds her sitting on the steps. He walks over to confront her.)
Steven Hey, what's wrong?
Connie I did something terrible at school, and I don't know what to do.
Steven That doesn't sound like you. What happened?
Connie I beat someone up.
Steven What?
Connie A kid I didn't know. He just bumped into me in the hallway. I was so startled, my training instincts kicked in. I just reacted. I was so embarrassed, I just ran away.
Steven But you didn't mean to hurt him! [Sighs] I know what it's like. Sometimes, you hurt people by accident. Y-you just have to try not to think about it.
Garnet Hold the phone.
(Garnet appears)
Garnet Now give the phone to me.
[Transition to the beach.]
Garnet For a fusion to work, there needs to be balance. An imbalance can cause your fusion to lose touch with reality, see things that aren't there, and eventually fall apart. That is to say if one of you is falling apart, your fusion will as well. To find balance, you must understand your feelings. To understand your feelings, you must see them clearly without running from them.
Connie See them clearly?
Garnet I'll show you, but first, we need Stevonnie.
Steven and Connie Mm.
(Steven and Connie fuse into Stevonnie. Garnet gestures them into a meditating position.)
Garnet Close your eyes.
Stevonnie Okay.
Garnet Breath.
Stevonnie [Inhales and exhales deeply.]
Garnet Here, in darkness, everything's okay. Listen to the waves, and let them fade away. Here comes a thought.
(Stevonnie and Garnet enter a realm, and Here Comes a Thought begins to play.)
Garnet ♪ Take a moment to think of just flexibility, love, and trust. Take a moment to think of just flexibility, love, and trust. ♪
[Ruby and Sapphire come on to the scene. Ruby is infuriated by the butterflies and chases one down while Sapphire is surrounded my an abundance of them.)
Garnet ♪ Here comes a thought that might alarm you. What someone said and how it harmed you. ♪
(Stevonnie encounters a butterfly on her index fingers and looks down sorrowfully. The butterfly flies away, and a swarm of them fly from behind Stevonnie and surround Sapphire.)
Garnet ♪ Something you did that failed to be charming. Things that you said are suddenly swarming and, oh. ♪
(Sapphire is overwhelmed by the butterflies and its mass collective while Ruby is infuriated at the one butterfly that causes her to break down crying. Sapphire reaches out to Ruby, but is too overwhelmed by the butterflies to do anything.)
Garnet ♪ You're losing sight. You're losing touch. All these little things seem to matter so much that they confuse you. That I might lose you. ♪
(Garnet shows Stevonnie the two butterflies in her hands and mentions whether these are what cause Ruby and Sapphire to fall apart, only to let them know that it is not the case.)
Garnet ♪ Take a moment. Remind yourself to take a moment and find yourself. Take a moment to ask yourself if this is how we fall apart. ♪
(Ruby takes deep breaths and attempts to calm down from assaulting the butterfly she once had an issue with, snapping back into reality to see Sapphire is in turmoil and runs over to comfort Sapphire with their company.)
Garnet ♪ But it's not. But it's not. But it's not. But it's not. But it's not. It's okay. It's okay. It's okay. It's okay. It's okay. You've got nothing. Got nothing. Got nothing. Got nothing to fear. I'm here. I'm here. I'm here. ♪
(Steven and Connie come onto the scene, and their stage plays out in a similar way Sapphire and Ruby's did. Steven expresses concern over Connie's remorseful mood until Connie encounters a butterfly, which she worries over.)
Stevonnie ♪ Here comes a thought that might alarm me. What someone said and how it harmed me. ♪
( It causes her to kneel to the ground in an attempt to ignore the butterfly. However, a swarm suddenly bursts out of her backpack.)
Stevonnie ♪ Something I did that failed to be charming. Things that I said are suddenly swarming and, oh. ♪
(The butterflies form into a giant version in the sky. It recalls Connie's troubling memory of assaulting the unknown kid at school by slamming him down on the ground. Connie, who is shocked by her actions, and the kid, who is shocked by the attack, part ways since Connie runs away in embarrassment. That is all the butterflies show to the cast.)
Stevonnie ♪ I'm losing sight. I'm losing touch. All these little things seem to matter so much that they confuse me. ♪
Garnet and Stevonnie ♪ That I might lose me. ♪
(Garnet and Stevonnie continue to meditate.)
Garnet and Stevonnie ♪ Take a moment. Remind yourself to take a moment and find yourself. Take a moment and ask yourself if this is how we fall apart. ♪
(The butterflies surrounding Stevonnie have been blown away, indicating a clearer mind. Steven and Connie breathe deeply to calm down until a butterfly lands on Connie's hand, causing her to generate tears until Steven lets her know of his company.)
Garnet and Stevonnie ♪ But it's not. But it's not. But it's not. But it's not. But it's not. It's okay. It's okay. It's okay. It's okay. It's okay. You've got nothing. Got nothing. Got nothing. Got nothing to fear. I'm here. I'm here. I'm here. ♪
(The butterflies fly away peacefully from Steven and Connie. Ruby and Sapphire join them and lay down to watch the butterflies flutter.)
Garnet and Stevonnie ♪ And it was just a thought. Just a thought. Just a thought. Just a thought. Just a thought. It's okay. It's okay. It's okay. It's okay. It's okay. We can watch. We can watch. We can watch. We can watch them go by. From here. From here. From here. ♪
Stevonnie ♪ Take a moment to think of just flexibility, love, and trust. Take a moment to think of just flexibility, love, and trust. ♪
[Transition to the beach house on the next day. Connie is enthusiastic on this day.]
Connie Steven, I'm ready to train! I'm so glad we talked to Garnet. I really figured out what I needed to do! I talked to Jeff. That's his name, by the way.
Steven Whoa. You did it.
Connie I apologized and he understood! He actually wanted to know if I could show him some moves. [Laughs]
Steven That's great!
Connie It's funny. I spent all that time feeling bad instead of doing something. It's like I was trying not to think about it, and that just made it worse. Now that I've got a clear head, we'll do so much better as Stevonnie. Anyway, I'm gonna change.
(Steven waves and notices a butterfly on Rose's Scabbard. He expresses concern with a facial expression, worrying if this is some foresight.)
[Transition to the ancient sky arena]
(Stevonnie fights against multiple Holo-Pearls, impressing Garnet and Pearl with various maneuvers and techniques.)
Pearl Great technique, Stevonnie. [Ducks under a flying Holo-Pearl] Whew! Keep it up!
Stevonnie Thanks, ma'am!
(Stevonnie charges at another Holo-Pearl and thrusts their sword.)
Stevonnie Hyah!
(But suddenly, Stevonnie starts to hallucinate again.)
Stevonnie Uh, uh... Oh, oh, uh...
(This time, they hallucinate Bismuth getting stabbed by their sword, poofing Bismuth into a swarm of butterflies.)
Stevonnie Oh no. It's happening again!
Stevonnie (Connie) Who was that?
Stevonnie (Steven) Bismuth.
Stevonnie (Connie) Steven...
Stevonnie (Steven) Oh, no. It's coming from me now!
Garnet Stevonnie!
Stevonnie U-uh!
Garnet Breathe!
Pearl What's going on? What's happening to them?
Garnet They've got this!
Stevonnie Y-yeah, I'm... I'm... ugh.
(Stevonnie hallucinates again. This time, Jasper appears.)
Stevonnie Jasper.
(Jasper approaches, and Stevonnie gets away from them.)
Stevonnie (Steven) I-I tried to help you. You wouldn't listen.
(Ruby (Eyeball) appears and expresses her anger.)
Stevonnie (Steven) I... I told you to stop! I-I had no choice! I-I'm sorry. I shouldn't be--
Stevonnie (Connie) No! It's okay! It's okay to think about it!
(Bismuth, Jasper, and Ruby (Eyeball) surround Stevonnie to fuel Steven's guilt, making him crumble under them.)
Stevonnie (Steven) I thought I could, but it's so much! I can't do it!
(Jasper, Bismuth, and Ruby (Eyeball) burst into three swarms of butterflies which fly into the air.)
Stevonnie Ahh!
(The butterflies begin to form into something.)
Stevonnie Ah!
(Stevonnie starts to whimper as the butterflies form the head and hair of Rose Quartz looking down at them with a disappointed expression.)
Stevonnie No... No... No, Ah!
(Stevonnie reaches the edge of the arena and falls off.)
Garnet and Pearl Stevonnie!
(Stevonnie continues to fall until they split into Steven and Connie.)
Stevonnie [Gasps then screams]
Connie We're falling! Steven, let's fuse! We can hover. We'll be okay!
(Steven is seen crying.)
Connie Steven?
Steven I didn't want to hurt anyone!
(Connie swims over to Steven.)
Steven I'm sorry! None of them would let me help them! I had no choice!
Connie It's okay!
Steven No, it's not!
Connie But it's okay to think about it!
Steven It feels so bad.
Connie That's okay, too! There was nothing else you could've done!
Steven I don't want to feel this way.
Connie You have to. You have to be honest about how bad it feels so you can move on. That's how it was for me.
Steven [Sniffles] Okay.
(Connie and Steven fuse again and return to their mental realm with a swarm of butterflies below.)
Stevonnie Aaah-eeee! [Pants] Just breathe.
(Stevonnie falls through the vortex of butterflies and reaches the ground safe and sound. They laugh and relax while staring at the clouds.)
Stevonnie [Laughs] [Sighs] I'm here.
[The end.]
