Speaker Dialogue
Episode begins with the Roaming Eye landing on the Beach. Steven, Greg and the Gems emerge from it, and Connie, who had been watching from the Beach House, excitedly runs out.
Connie (Gasps)
Greg Oh, good old, natural sand. That fancy zoo sand was too fine for me.
Connie Hey! Steven!
Steven Connie! (They hug)
Connie (Giggles) You're back, and you're okay! Did you get your ears pierced?
Steven Oh man, you're not going to believe what happened! We went to a far off space station! We made some new friends! We warped the space-time continuum! Sorry we left you behind.
Connie It's okay. You were really worried about your dad. I'm just glad you're all back safe.
Greg Yep. (Hugs Steven) All thanks to this guy.
Steven Did anything happen while we were gone?
Connie Uh, Lion behaved himself. I restocked all the cereal and washed all the towels.
Steven Sounds like everything went well.
Connie Well...there was a little trouble.
Episode transitions to a flashback in the Maheswaran Residence. Connie enters the living room, talking on the phone
Connie (narrating) When I got that call from you, I could tell you had a lot going on.
Steven Dad's in trouble, and we need to go into space to get him back.
Connie I can be there in 15! Or actually, maybe 20-25 because I might have to take the bus-
Steven There's no time. We're going right now. Just protect Beach City for me while we're gone.
Connie You can count on me!
Connie (narrating) It was a big job for one person, but I felt up to the challenge. I made your way over to your house. And that's when I realized I wasn't alone.
Connie opens the front door of the Beach House and hears something in the bathroom. She takes out Rose's Sword and makes her way to the door, forcing it open with her foot
Connie (Swipes with the sword) Hi-ya! (Pauses, seeing Lapis and Peridot in the bathroom. Peridot is in the toilet)
Peridot Uh, don't you knock?
Lapis Weirdo.
Connie Lapis? Peridot? What are you doing here?
Peridot Just showing off my old room to-oh wait, actually that's none of your business!
Lapis Who is this and what is she doing in Steven's house?
Peridot That's Steven's third best friend, after me and you.
Connie Um, Lapis. You don't remember me?
Lapis Umm.
Connie You almost drowned me when you tried to steal the world's water?
Lapis I almost drowned a lot of people.
Connie I'm Connie.
Peridot (Runs over) I'm Peridot! And this is our Pumpkin! (Pumpkin emerges from the laundry basket and barks)
Connie Oh. Hello! (Pumpkin continues to bark)
Connie goes outside with Lapis and Peridot and she holds Pumpkin in her hands as they sit.
Connie So, Steven told me you guys retired to the country. What brings you here?
Peridot Garnet trusted us with a mission!
Connie Oh, Steven gave me one too. I just hope I don't let him down.
Peridot You probably will. That's why they put us (Points to Lapis and herself) in charge of protecting Beach City.
Connie But Steven asked me to do that.
Lapis You really think we need your help?
Peridot Wait a minute. Maybe we do need your help. The Crystal Gems have been protecting this world with a specialized team! Three Gems, each with their own role. And a human! Well, Steven's only half human, but hmm, close enough.
Lapis Mmm... meaning?
Peridot To do the job of the Crystal Gems, we need to do the jobs of the Crystal Gems. We four...
Connie Four?
Peridot I'm counting Pumpkin. (Pumpkin barks) We each need to pick someone from the original team and perform their role in the group! We can be exactly like them. But better!
Connie That... sort of makes sense.
Peridot I call Garnet! I'm obviously best suited to being the boss.
Lapis You are very bossy.
Peridot Thank you.
Connie Then I'll do what Steven does.
Peridot Lapis, you can be Amethyst.
Lapis Which one is she? (Deadpan) I'm joking.
Peridot Great! You are already in character.
Connie What about your pumpkin?
Peridot Whatever. She can be Pearl. (Pumpkin barks) (Peridot strikes a cool pose) New Crystal Gems! Congregate! That means, come over here and do a cool pose.
Connie and Lapis reluctantly strike a pose, while Pumpkin poses excited near Peridot
Outside of Steven's House, Connie inspects Beach City with a pair of binoculars. She spots Mr. Smiley outside of the FunLand Arcade, Sadie and Lars, and Ronaldo who notices Connie with his own binoculars.
Connie Hm. Let's see... nothing there. Judging from what Steven tells me, everything's normal.
Peridot Hey there. Am I doing it? Am I as aloof and distant as the Garnet?
Lapis You were, (Amethyst's Impression) until you started to ask so many questions. Ha ha ha ha. (Snorts) (Pumpkin, dressed as Pearl, barks excited)
Buck (Car honks) Heeeelp!
Peridot Go! New Crystal Gems!
Peridot, Lapis, and Connie run towards It's a Wash, and Connie eventually catches up from behind, running in the front.
Peridot What seems the trouble here, Beach City citizen.
Buck It's my dad. Some jerks have been messing with his head. It was funny, till he made me bring it here. Can you guys wash it off?
Connie Oh right! If's Mister Universe and Steven are in outer space then, we should run the car wash.
Peridot Ahem.
Connie Eh, water we waiting for?
Peridot Haha, good one Steven.
Lapis Whatever you say, dudes. Buuurp!
Pumpkin (Barking)
Peridot Well said, Pearl.
Peridot lifts Mayor Dewey's van with her metal abilities, Lapis covers it with water, and once Peridot puts it in the ground, Connie and Pumpkin dry the van with a piece of fabric.
Connie Here's your vehicle. Washed and buffed. Courtesy of the New Crystal Gems.
Buck That was cool.
Connie Thanks!
Connie (Narrating) After such a rocky start, it finally seemed like the New Crystal Gems were coming together. Or were we?
Several car honks wake up Connie, and the New Crystal Gems run to the It's a Wash.
Connie Whoa, looks like word got around.
Buck Encore! Encore!
Peridot I know what everyone is really here to see. Beach City citizens, witness the Garnet!
Peridot grunts, and proceed to lift the Pizza's car. And Lapis covers it with water.
Peridot Amethyst, your performance is lacking. Mess around, crack some jokes.
Lapis Oh, was that was I was supposed to be doing?
Lapis divides the giant bubble of water into several, smaller ones, wich spray at random people's faces.
Connie Lapis, uh, the Steven doesn't think that's funny. (A bubble sprays Connie)
Lapis Heh.
Peridot I can't believe this. The only one taking anything seriously around here is Pumpkin.
Pumpkin is seen eating soapy water
Peridot That's right. Pearl does like soap.
Buck Uh hey. You gonna bring our car down?
Peridot Do not interrupt the Garnet! (Peridot drops the Pizza's car) Everyone will have a turn! (Peridot now lifts Yellowtail's car, with him inside)
Yellowtail Ma! Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma.
Peridot Oops.
Connie Peridot! Put that guy down!
Peridot No one, bosses the Garnet!
Connie Well Garnet wouldn't yell at people.
Lapis I agree. Maybe you should let someone else play the Garnet.
Lapis summons a giant water hand and grabs Yellowtail's car
Yellowtail (Panicked) Ma-ma! Ma-ma-ma!
Peridot Nooooo. Amethyst! I have the glasses!
Lapis There is no Amethyst, only Garnet.
Connie What are you guys doing?
Peridot and Lapis struggles for the control of Yellowtail's car, and crash it on the It's a Wash sign.
Connie Oh no. I gotta Steven this somehow. Look at us! We are all fighting with each other. Uh, but we all love each other. And you all love me. So, we have to do this together, for love.
Lapis Steven would have had a better speech.
Peridot I know. She didn't even cry.
Connie (Sighs).
Connie (Narrating) The wash was, a wash. And so were the New Crystal Gems.
Peridot I've done a lot of thinking about what's been going wrong with this team up, and I think it's obvious now that the problem is all of you! Connie, you completely lack Steven's sentimentality. He would have a much more inspiring speech yesterday. Lapis, your lack of humor has been hurting our morale. Maybe you should switch with Pumpkin.
Lapis Let's make Pumpkin the Garnet. You should be the Pearl.
Peridot I'm nothing like Pearl! (Teary) She is so uptight and sensitive! How dare you! I'm leaving!
Lapis That's so funny. You should be Amethyst.
Peridot That's so dumb, you should be a clod.
Lapis Oh, so now I'm a clod? I think you're the clod.
Peridot Wow, your Peridot impression is lousy too!
Connie Will you two can it?!
Lapis That's not a very Steven thing to say.
Connie I don't care! So I'm not Steven. Maybe he's really great at helping people work out these arguments, maybe he's really patient and caring, even though it must be hard for him having to be the adult for a bunch of super-powered children!
Lapis We're both thousands of years older than you.
Connie Then act like it! Be the Gems you've been for thousands of years instead of playing this silly game. It's impossible trying to solve problems if we're just trying to copy other people. What's the point of this? We'll never be the Crystal Gems. We're just... the Crystal Temps. But we have our own way of doing things. So, let's go back to that, to fix this mess we made.
Lapis You do make a good Steven.
Connie Watch it.
Peridot Well, if there's one thing Peridots are good at, it's fixing things.
Lapis I guess I could help wash away the rubble.
Connie And I'll help us organize. So, here's how I think we should start.
Steven You sure you wrecked anything? The car wash looks good as new.
Connie Well, except, we couldn't repair the sign.
Greg Well, about time I got a new one. Guess I'll give my neon guy a call.
Connie Well, don't get out your check book yet. Bring it on out!
Peridot Introducing a new sign! For your business. We made it ourselves. Look at it, it's great!
Greg I think I... love it!
Connie Really?
Greg That old sign was okay, but this one's got personality.
Connie Well it wasn't much of a mission but I guess we handled that alright.
Steven I knew you would.
Peridot Does that mean we can do a victory pose?
Lapis Okay.
Connie, Lapis and Peridot (with Pumpkin) Go, Crystal Temps!
