Speaker Dialogue
[Episode begins in Greg's It's a Wash with Steven in a car with sunglasses.]
Steven They told me there wasn't enough room on the road for the Universe. And I told them, the Universe is my road.
(Steven pretends as if he started the car by moving the clutch and pressing the pedals.)
Steven Vroom, vroom!
Connie *starts knocking the window of the car* Steven? Steven?
Steven (Steven lowers the window and takes off glasses) Oh, hey, Connie! (Steven turns towards his Dad, Greg) Thanks for letting me practice, Dad. This car's great! But I think it might be too small to live in.
Greg Ah, the van's still home sweet home. I just thought now that I'm swimming in dough, why not get a new car?
Connie A new car? But it's got this big "Used" sticker on it.
Greg I like to think of it as more "Experienced" than "Used."
(Greg takes out another sticker with "Dad on Board" written on it and places it over the "Used" sticker)
Greg This baby's a Dondai Supremo from the era of frosted tips, mood rings, slap bracelets.
(Connie and Steven look at Greg, confused.)
Greg You know, before you kids were born.
Connie What a time to be alive.
Greg I've had my eye on the Dondai since way back when. (Greg shows an image with his younger self besides a Dondai) I loved that car. (Slideshows began with Greg and a Dondai.) I wanted that car.
(Connie and Steven look at the images awkwardly until Greg throws them away.)
Greg Also, these things are crazy on the road. (Goes inside the Dondai) Front wheel suspension, tons of ponies. But best of all.... (Greg calmly says) It has a Tape Deck! (Greg inserts a tape into the tape deck.)
(Chill music plays, Steven and Connie laugh.)
(As the song plays, Connie and Steven pick up sponges and start cleaning the car from the rear.)
(Steven looks back at the bucket to see the vibration causing the water to ripple. Suddenly, Rock music is heard getting louder and louder, with it, a yellow colored sports car. The engines are heard revving. The tires screech as it skids on the Car Wash's road.)
Kevin Give me a wash, old man.
Greg (Greg reacts quickly) Uh, right away, young man.
Connie Is that...?
Steven (Steven, in fury, squeezes the sponge) Kevin!
Kevin (On the phone) I didn't say iron the socks. I said I want my socks pressed. (Notices Greg) Whoa -- Wait, wait. Careful with the tires, Grandpa. I got a big race today, and my car has to look as beautiful as me. (Kevin winks.)
(Steven comes in between Kevin and Greg.)
Steven Back off, Kevin! He's not a Grandpa! He's just a regular Pa!
(Kevin turns off his phone and looks intently at Steven)
Kevin Have we met before? I think I'd remember a twerp like you.
Steven (Steven starts yelling) You do remember a twerp like me!
(Connie runs towards Steven, laughing nervously)
Connie (Nervously) You -- You just look like another guy we know.
Kevin That's impossible. There's only one... (Screen focuses on Kevin's eyes) Kevin. (Kevin's races away as his tires screech.)
Greg Hey! He forgot to... Eh, what do I care? I'm rich.
Steven (Steven, in anger, growls) I hate Kevin!
Greg Whoa, whoa, whoa! Watch the four letters, schtuball. Hate's a strong word.
Steven It's a strong feeling, too.
Greg Do you know that guy?
Connie Well, kinda. When we fused into Stevonnie, we met him at the dance and --
Steven He was a creep!
Greg Steven!
Steven That's five letters!
Connie He kept asking us to dance with him, even though we said no. It was really... uncomfortable.
Steven He didn't even care about how we felt -- At all!
Greg (Sighs in exasperation) I had no idea that happened. I'm really sorry. That guy, he's not even worth the time of day. Don't even give him the satisfaction of thinking about him.
Connie Thanks, Mr. Universe.
[Time-skip to dusk at "It's a Wash". Steven and Connie lay on top of the Dondai looking at the sky.]
(Steven sighs.)
Connie Still mad about Kevin?
Steven (Close up of Steven's face.) Yes.
Connie Me too.
Steven (Steven sits up) You don't seem mad.
Connie I'm thinking mad. (Connie sits up as well) I still feel like there's something big I want to say to him, you know? Something to make him think, like we're thinking.
Steven Yeah. Too bad we can't just race against him -- To use the first place ribbon to wipe that smug look off his face!
Connie But we're kids. Kids can't drive. That's against the law.
Steven We weren't kids when we met Kevin.
Connie (Smirking) I smell what you're steppin' in.
Steven Ew.
[Transition to the bottom of a hill in a parking lot. Buck Dewey, Sour Cream, Ronaldo Fryman and a few other bystanders are present, with Ronaldo holding a scooter.]
(Kevin drives his car towards a clearing as his tires screech due to a race, coming first place as Jenny comes second.)
Jenny (Frustrated) Ugh! My practice didn't pay off at all! That was so bad!
(Techno music starts pulsing from Keven's car as he steps out, leaning on the open car door.)
Kevin I know, baby. I'm the worst.
(Jenny scoffs.)
Kevin Anyone else think they can beat me and my Himitsu X-12 on the downhill course, step right up. (Ronaldo, and some other folks backed away in silence.)
Kevin (Mock-whining) Come on, how am I going to get a cool-down lap if no one wants to go?
(The engine of the Dondai revs Stevonnie drives it towards Kevin, and comes out.)
Stevonnie I'll race you!
Kevin Huh?
Ronaldo (Ronaldo rushes towards the Dondai on his scooter excitedly) Ah! Aah! Ha! (Enthusiastically) Is that a 96' Supremo? (Starts excited whispering.)
Stevonnie (Uncertain) Uh... I think it's a Dondai?
Ronaldo A Supremo is a Dondai!
Stevonnie Wow. really?
Ronaldo Are you saying you don't know the true power of the Supremo?
Stevonnie Uh...
Kevin Ha! That's why I knew those brats at the car wash -- they're you! Your whole "two kids in a beautiful trench coat" routine won't fool me this time, so don't even try it!
Stevonnie You don't know what you're talking about. (Slaps hand on the hood of their car, making Ronaldo to scoot away) I'll show you what I'm made of when I beat you at this race!
Kevin Heh. I see what's going on here.
Stevonnie (Disdainfully with arms crossed) Do you?
Kevin You've had a taste of Kevin, and now you're obsessed.
Stevonnie (Pause. Then squints frustratingly, teeth gritted) What?
Kevin (Shrugs innocently, talking with mock pity) I get it. I have that effect on people. It's cute. But aren't I a little old for you?
Stevonnie Gah! Do you want to race or not?
Kevin The start is at the top of the mountain. We go when the clock strikes the hour. First one to the bottom wins, (smirking smugly) but you don't have to worry about that last part.
Stevonnie Ah. (growls)
(Kevin enters his car and speeds off up the hill, the car's tires screeching and leaving smoke and everyone coughing except for Stevonnie)
Stevonnie That guy is going down.
[Transition to the top of the hill. The engines of both cars are on as the sky turns to twilight and the crickets chirp in the background.]
Kevin (Checks his watch, looking bored. He looks up and glances at Stevonnie, who is growling in frustration) You know, this mountain pass has some really beautiful views. Shame you'll only be seeing my tail lights the whole time.
Stevonnie (Agitated, gripping the steering wheel) You wish.
[Shot of a electrical clock in the Dondai with the time displayed "8:58". Electric mid-tempo music plays as soon as the clock turns 8:59. Road lights switch on from off camera.]
Kevin It's Kevin time. (Revs engine and takes off, tires screeching, scaring a nearby blue jay.)
Stevonnie (Frustrated from being startled.) Shoot! (Changes gear and takes off, tires screeching)
[Camera pans up as the tire screech fades, getting a shot of a yellow Winding Road danger sign, the same blue jay appears and lands on it.]
[Cut to Kevin's car speeding down the far left side of the road alone, the engine revving loudly. Then a cut inside the car of Kevin looking smugly confident. The lights from Stevonnie's car shine's through the car's rear quarter and back screen windows. He glances in that direction and scoffs. Stevonnie's car catches up right behind Kevin. Cut inside Stevonnie's car, who is slightly sweating, gripping the steering wheel and the gear lever.]
Stevonnie I won't let you win! (Changes gear and speeds in front of Kevin)
Stevonnie (Tauntingly) Ha, Ha! (Genuinely laughs until they spot a sharp on a cliff ahead) Oh.
Ronaldo (Spectating the race with binoculars) Oh, my gosh. (Lowers binoculars) This is it!
Jenny Are they gonna crash?
Ronaldo No! We're about to witness the true power of the Supremo!
Buck, Sour Cream, Jenny, and a bystander Oh...
[Panicking, Stevonnie switches gear again, pulls the parking brake, and slams their foot on the car brakes and yanks the wheel left, closing their eyes tightly. When they open their eyes, they realize they're drifting and adjusts accordingly. They chuckle smugly, until they see Kevin beside them.]
Stevonnie Huh?
Kevin So you do know how to use that thing. (Laughs as he speeds ahead)
[Shot of Kevin changing gear using buttons behind the steering wheel, then drifting another sharp turn, Stevonnie still shortly behind him.]
[Multiple shots of gears being changed, turns, and struggling for the lead.]
Kevin (Smugly) I know you want to be close, but this is a little clingy.
Stevonnie (Sticks out their tongue in disgust) Ugh.
Kevin Feel like giving up yet?
Stevonnie Oh! Why do you have to be such a jerk all the time?
Kevin (Looks uncomfortable) The truth is I don't mean to be this way. I-I just lash out because of my little brother. (inhales sharply, sighs) He's sick. Been sick all our lives. Sometimes I think if I act real cool and never let anyone see my pain, then maybe the pain will go away. And maybe... (Cover's face with his hand) I can take his pain away, too.
Stevonnie Kevin, I had no idea.
(Kevin starts sniffling with his hand still on his face. The sniffling slowly turns to laughter.)
Kevin Dude! I don't even have a brother! I'm like this because I think it's funny!
Stevonnie (growls furiously)
Kevin Chowzers. (Speeds ahead of Stevonnie)
Stevonnie (Teeth gritted) Kevin!
[Shot of Kevin's car ahead though Stevonnie's windshield. Then Stevonnie's hands tightly gripping the steering wheel. A shot of their face looking furious as they groan in anger. Back to the shot of Kevin's car, the background backs away as they start to hallucinate.]
Stevonnie (Stevonnie starts to panic as they become undone) What's happening? Kevin... (They look in the rear view mirror, showing their hallucination of the roar crumbling behind them) Oh! No! We have to beat him. He deserves to lose! (Hallucination of Kevin's face with red glowing eyeballs approaching Stevonnie screams and veers the wheel to their left, cutting to black)
[Shot of the Dondai, idle in the middle of the road, facing the wrong way. Tire tread marks indicate that the car sped out of control. Inside the car, Steven and Connie sit shoulder-to-shoulder on the driver seat in bracing positions, Steven is panting.]
Steven Are you okay?
Connie I think so. Are you okay?
Steven Yeah.
(Steven and Connie sigh in relief and recline in the driver seat)
Steven Seems like the car is safe, too.
(They open the door and Connie steps out and looks down the road)
Steven What are you doing?
Connie (Turns to Steven) What are we doing?
Steven We're getting Kevin back. We're about to beat him at his own game!
Connie Yeah, but why do we even have to play his game?
Steven Because -- he's -- he's... DAGH!
Connie I know! So why should he get to have any say over how we feel?
Steven He doesn't!
Connie But he's the reason we're racing... (Glumly) Steven, he's the reason we fused.
Steven (Steven gasps in realization) We are obsessed with him.
Connie (Looking and sounding determined.) I want to finish this race... but not for him.
Steven Right.
(Steven walks over to Connie and lends out his hand, both of them looking determined.)
Steven For us!
(Connie takes his hand.)
[Shot of the spectators at the bottom looking up the hill intently.]
Jenny The Supremo isn't moving! Ugh, that's it. I'm gonna go up there and check if they're okay.
Ronaldo (Points up the hill.) Wait!
(The Dondai's engine rev, Stevonnie grins and speeds down the road making the tires squeal.)
[Shot of Stevonnie's car approaching in Kevin's rear view mirror.]
Kevin (Scoffs) Finally.
(The Dondai approaches next to Kevin's car.)
Kevin You caught up. I was worried you'd miss seeing me win. (Glances at Stevonnie)
(Stevonnie does not reply, much to Kevin's annoyance.)
Kevin What, so you're shy now?
(Stevonnie continues to ignore Kevin and speeds ahead of him.)
Kevin (Surprised) What? (Grunts and accelerates)
[Shot of Kevin and Stevonnie drifting another sharp turn seen though a convex mirror. Stevonnie, in their car, notices the view from the mountain. Beach City behind Rehoboth Bay and the full moon shining on the bay, making it look milky white. The clear skies behind the clouds revealing the radiant stars in the night sky. They laugh softly with joy. Kevin sneers and growls in frustration. He glances at the bottom of the hill, seeing all the spectators watching them. He grins smugly and activates a Nitrous canister, boosting him past Stevonnie and beating them.]
Jenny (Disappointed) Aw! I was rooting for you, Dondai!
Ronaldo Kevin is the worst! Boo!
Kevin (Taunting) What, what? That's right! First place, baby! It's like I invented winning.
Stevonnie (Holds out her hand) Good race.
Kevin (Looks at her hand suspiciously) You trying to kiss my hand with your hand or something?
Stevonnie You know, Kevin, you were right.
Kevin (scoffs) I know. About what?
Stevonnie The view from the mountain was pretty great.
Kevin (Agitated) Hey! don't try to teach me a lesson! You lost!
Stevonnie Second place isn't so bad... for my first time driving a car. (Walks to their car and turns it on.)
Kevin (Scoffs. Anger and distress creeping into his tone) Look at you. You're so obsessed with me, you're gonna drive away.
Kevin Fine! Go play with some kiddy toy cars! I could beat you at that, too!
(Stevonnie looks at Kevin through their rear view mirror as they drive off.)
Kevin (Voice fading as Stevonnie drives away) Don't forget...(Stevonnie adjusts the rear view mirror to reveal they're smiling.) You're obsessed with me! (He sobs a few times in distress as the Dondai drives down the road) Obsessed! Obseeeeeessed!
[Star iris closes on the Dondai.]
