Speaker Dialogue
[Open Ext. Beach House]
Steven Pearl!
Pearl *rushes outside with her spear* Hyungh!
Steven Help me, save me, help me! *jumps onto Pearl* Saaave meee!
(Garnet and Amethyst, who are shapeshifted into Steven, run around Pearl while laughing.)
Pearl *looks down* What on Earth?!
Steven *pokes Pearl's forehead* Tag! You're it.
Pearl *looks down* Care to explain— Ugh! *Steven puts his finger in Pearl's mouth* (Pearl takes her mouth away from Steven's finger.) ...what's going on here?
Amethyst It's Steven Tag! Steven tagged you, now you have to turn into Steven.
Garnet It's the rules.
Pearl Ugh. Oh, please. *puts on a face*
Steven *disappointed* Awww, no fair!
Amethyst *to Garnet* Sooooo, that means we're out of players. Get ready for Steven Tag Advance! *tries to tag Garnet*
Garnet *grabs Amethyst behind the shirt and flings her to the sky* *slaps her back really hard* Tag!
(The Gems look over to Amethyst, lying in the crater.)
Amethyst Waaaaaah! Ungh...
Garnet *smiles* Garnet wins.
[Trans. Int. The Beach]
(Steven sings the "Steven Tag Song".)
Ronaldo Stop!
(Steven peers over the rock to see Ronaldo wearing a military style outfit.)
Ronaldo This is a restricted zone! *shoos him* Only those with special clearance may enter!
Steven ... May, I have special clearance?
Ronaldo *observes him* Hmmmm, granted.
[Scene cuts to Ronaldo rummaging through a duffel bag and Steven with clear bags on his hands]
Ronaldo Now that you're properly suited, let's investigate! *gives Steven binoculars* See those holes? Their shape and pattern is repeated over and over. *takes picture with phone* Some might say it's a coincidence. I say there's something... more.
Steven Like what? A double coincidence?
Ronaldo You'd already be in the know if you followed my blog, "Keep Beach City Weird"! (He shows Steven the website on his phone.) I document all the weird thing that happen in Beach City! You can't always trust facts and books. I'm out here hunting the TRUTH!
Peedee Oh, there you are! *runs over* Dad wants you back at the shop! You're missing out on valuable frying time!
Ronaldo It's WEIRD time, Peedee! I'm doing big stuff! COVER for me!
Peedee Fine. But this is the last time, or I’m telling Dad. *walks away mumbling angrily* “Big stuff”, I’ll give you "big stuff".
Ronaldo *turns to Steven* So. You wanna get your hands really dirty? (Steven takes the bags off his hands and shows them to him.) Then follow me.
Steven Yeah!
[Trans. Int. BC Boardwalk]
(Steven and Ronaldo walk along the boardwalk.)
Steven *peering through binoculars* I can’t wait to find something paranormal.
Ronaldo *holding detection device* Shh! I’m picking up a quantum flux on the weirdometer. There. *points to red jagged rocks*
Steven Whoaaaa, did they fall from the sky?
Ronaldo My research suggests, they grew up *points upward* from the ground.
[Trans. Ext. Big Donut]
Steven *rushes to garbage bin covered in flower petals* Ronaldo! Look at this! *points to flower petals*
Ronaldo According to an online encyclopedia in which I am a user, slash editor of, this species isn’t indigenous to this region... or this dimension! *makes a face and echoes* -sion-sion-sion!
[Trans. Ext. BC Fries]
Ronaldo We live in a strange world Steven. Stranger than most know, stranger than they care to know. Take my brother for instance, *looks over to Peedee, who is working* He’s always getting on my case, telling me to work more. He'll never understand, but Steven, I can tell you're like me.
Steven Yeah!
Ronaldo I know you’re someone I can trust... [Camera zooms into Ronaldo's face]
[Trans. Int. The Lighthouse]
(Steven and Ronaldo approach the Lighthouse atop the temple’s cliff.)
Ronaldo You're ready for what I've found. The cause of Beach City's paranormal activity.
Steven Wait, what?
Ronaldo *leads them to a room at the top of the lighthouse* Welcome to my office, go that way. Welcome... to the truth! (He removes a sheet to reveal a large board with several newspaper clips and “Snake People” written in large letters on it.)
Steven *off-screen, frightened* SNAKE PEOPLE?!
Ronaldo Snake People, or “sneople”, control our government at the highest levels! Look! *shows Steven a dollar* The snake represents their hold on our country. The diamond represents their underground mines, or their sharp teeth... the details aren’t important. They pit us mammals against each other with elections, sports, and anime message boards. We spend so much time fighting over “dubs” or “subs” that we miss the big picture!
Steven *in awe* What’s that?
Ronaldo That the world is under their control.
(Steven leaves the Lighthouse and upon doing so, is confronted by a small garden snake which hisses and slithers away.)
Steven AAAAAAAH! *runs off*
[Trans. Int. Steven’s House]
(Steven rushes inside, exhausted and slams the door behind him.)
Pearl Steven, don’t slam the door!
Steven Amethyst, Pearl, we need to snake-proof the house!
Pearl Why?
Steven To stop the snake people!
Amethyst Uh, snake people? *laughs*
Steven *blushes angrily* What’s so funny about sneople? Look at this. *shows them a photo of the holes in the cliff from his phone*
Pearl That must be from when we fought those drill parasites on the beach.
Steven Wha? Well, what about this. *swipes to the next photo*
Amethyst That looks like pieces of that Red Eye we blew up!
Steven Well, what about this! *shows picture of petals on the garbage bin*
Pearl Aww, it’s the flowers from Rose's moss.
Steven *realizing* Is all the weird stuff that happens in Beach City because of us?
Pearl Well, yeah, obviously.
Steven I need some air...
[Trans. Ext. Steven’s House]
(Steven leaves for fresh air but finds Ronaldo on the beach, investigating the crater formed earlier by the Gems.)
Steven Ronaldo?
Ronaldo *putting a cast on the crater* Steven! Did you see this crater? I think the snake people might have left it as a sign.
Steven *approaches apologetically* Yeah... ugh, Ronaldo?
Ronaldo *makes an anime-esque face* Yes, Steven?
Steven Are you... totally sure about this “snake people” thing?
Ronaldo *happy expression quickly fades away* Steven, are you having doubts?
Steven Not really just... doubts. I found out that those weird holes in the cliff were just something me and the Gems did.
Ronaldo Well, okay, but those red rocks...
Steven That was us...
Ronaldo But, the flowers...
Steven Us too.
Ronaldo But, but the truth!
Steven Maybe the truth just isn’t what you thought it was.
Ronaldo Sure it is! Don't get hung up on these minor facts. Truth is about more than that, truth is a feeling in your gut that you know is true! Truth is searching for anything that proves you're right no matter how small, and holding on to that, no matter what.
Steven That kinda sounds like the opposite of truth.
Ronaldo Look! The proof! This cast will show the true face of this conspiracy. *holds up cast which looks exactly like Steven* Oh, wha-huh?
Steven That’s probably from Steven Tag.
Ronaldo What?! *very disappointed*
Steven It’s a game where, when I tag one of the Gems, they- (Ronaldo stops him.)
Ronaldo I'm really not at the center of anything... I'm nothing. *walks away sadly as the cast hits a rock and breaks*
[Trans. Int. Steven’s House]
(Steven slouches on the couch, looking at Ronaldo's blog which shows it has been shut down.)
Pearl What’s wrong, Steven?
Steven *sadly* I think I broke Ronaldo’s heart.
Pearl Oh, Steven. Humans just lead short, boring, insignificant lives, so they make up stories to feel like they're a part of something bigger. They want to blame all the world's problems on some single enemy they can fight, instead of a complex network of interrelated forces beyond anyone's control.
Amethyst It’s sad, and funny.
Pearl Don't feel bad about it, okay? It's not like he was ever going to be right. (Steven looks at a coin which has a snake emblem on it and then leaps up to leave.) *washes dishes* Steven, where are you going?
Steven *holding costume* I'm gonna go fix Ronaldo! I'll be back in an hour.
[Trans. Ext. BC Fries]
(Peedee peels potatoes in the back of the shop when Ronaldo comes out to take out trash.)
Peedee Yo, Ronaldo! (Ronaldo remains silent.) Ehhh, so... see anything weird lately?
Ronaldo *unshaven and depressed* No, everything's... normal.
(Steven approaches them in a snake costume.)
Steven *in a snake costume* *hiss* Snake men are real, and we’re puppeting the go’ment! *hiss*
Peedee Ahh!
Ronaldo *laughs hysterically and slowly approaches him* HYAH! *hits Steven over the head with a potato, knocking him out*
[Trans. Int. Lighthouse at Night]
(Ronaldo interrogates Steven as Steven is tied to a chair in his Snake costume, PeeDee looks on, recording with a hand-held camcorder.)
Ronaldo Wakey wakey, Mr. Snakey... *uses flash light to dilate pupils* Wave forms seem typical for a twelfth dimensional being of this size. *lifts the fake arm using his flashlight* Arms appear to be, vestigial.
Peedee *holding camcorder* U-uh, Ronaldo? Is that, uh, one of the monster people you've been hunting?
Ronaldo No no, not “monster” Peedee, snerson. It’s very scientific! But still, better safe than sorry. *offers him a potato*
Peedee What’s this for?
Ronaldo For me! In case the amphibanoids turn my body into a host vessel!
Peedee No! *drops potato and begins to tear up*
Ronaldo Peedee, Peedee, Peedee. You gotta look at the big picture here! Something important is finally happening to me!
(The exterior wall suddenly breaks as the Gems reveal themselves fully armed.)
Garnet Hello.
Pearl We know you have our Steven! (Garnet holds her back.)
Amethyst Give him up, curly! (Garnet holds her head.) Grrrr... *barks*!
Ronaldo *gasps* You, snake people... Hiding like cowards in your false humanoid exteriors! Steven’s got nothing to do with this, it's me you want! *takes off shirt to reveal armor*
(Amethyst quickly kicks him to the ground, Ronaldo recovers and attempts to attack Pearl with a punch but is very easily blocked, causing his hand to hurt.)
Ronaldo *holding his hand and runs to Pearl to punch her* AAAAAH! Aah-Aah! YOU SNONSTER! (Garnet breaks a barrel over him.) AAAAH!
(The Gems continue to attack while Steven wriggles free from the chair and the top of his costume.)
Peedee Steven?! (Steven rushes over.)
Ronaldo Okay, okay. You’ve forced me to use my ultimate weapon! Stand back! Psychic Ghost Powers, Activate! (He begins to chant gibberish, the Gems ready themselves but Steven steps in between them.)
Steven Everybody stop! I’m okay!
Garnet ... Nice pants. (Amethyst laughs.)
Ronaldo Steven, your legs! When did they get to you?
Steven *annoyed* Ronaldo! It's not real! *tosses down his mask* It was just me, again.
Ronaldo That, makes no sense... *rummages through the costume while Peedee looks on, embarrassed*
Steven I just wanted to inspire Ronaldo to be weird again.
Ronaldo No! It— It just isn’t that simple! There’s got to be more to it than just, you. (The Gems look away.)
Peedee But there is more! Steven is just uh... *rummages through his papers* uh... a small piece of the puzzle! Look at this! I think its gotta be uh, level 8 beings pulling the strings.
Ronaldo Get real, Peedee. *pauses* Level 8 beings are a worker society incapable of such organization... whoa, wait a minute! *drops papers to the ground* How did I never see this before? *peers at dollar bill* I know what the diamond means... Polymorphic sentient rocks! *laughs hysterically as Peedee, Steven, and the Gems sneak out of the lighthouse*
Steven Are you sure he’ll be better like that?
Peedee Yeah, he’s happy, ya know?
Steven Yeah.
[Trans. Ext. Lighthouse]
(All walk down the hill while Steven rides on Pearl’s back as Garnet pets his head, Ronaldo remains in the Lighthouse.)
Ronaldo *from the balcony of the lighthouse* They're here to hollow out the Earth! It's part of the Great Diamond Authority! They’ll take on any form, you can read all about it... *yells* ON MY BLOOOG!
