Speaker Dialogue
[Open Ext. Steven's Room]
[Camera focuses on the Crystal Temple then onto Steven]
Steven *on the phone with Connie* What? Why not?
[Trans. Int. Connie's house]
Connie Steven, I told you, I can't hang out today. I have tennis practice. And then Mom wants to go out for a family dinner. But she said I could hang out all day tomorrow, and I can come over all the time now that it's summer vacation.
Steven What's summer vacation?
Connie *on phone* You know, when school gets out for the summer?
Steven *lying upside down on the couch* I've never been to this— how do you say— "school". How does it work?
Connie It's a place where you go to learn. It's full of desks, chalkboards...
Steven Hmm.
Connie Books, maps.
Steven I see.
[Trans. Int. Beach house]
(Pearl assembles all the things that Connie mentioned on the floor.)
Steven *looks at pile* Yep, it's all coming together.
Pearl So, how do we begin our "school"?
Steven *holds the locker beside him* Ugh... I... I don't know! This is everything Connie told me. Why do I never ask follow-up questions?! Who will teach little Stevie now!?
Pearl *gasps* Teach you?! Steven! If only I had known that's what you really wanted!
Pearl TWOOOAH! HAAAAAAAAH! (She does the same ritual from "Lars and the Cool Kids" and summons a mirror from her gem.)
Pearl (Pearl explains as the mirror twirls in mid-air.) We found this Gem-powered mirror at the Galaxy Warp. It can capture and display any event it's witnessed in all of Gem history.
Steven *gasps*
Pearl *comes from behind and places her arms around him* It'll offer you everything you've ever wanted to know about your fellow Gems and our culture.
Steven *looking at his reflection in the mirror* I must be incredibly important to Gem culture.
Pearl *scoffs* It's just you in there. It hasn't even been activated. *clears throat* Show us the Galaxy Warp... (The mirror does nothing.) Show us the Galaxy Warp. *frustrated* Oh, come on! *tugs on it*
Steven *gets slightly lifted* Whoa! *laughs*
Pearl I know you've seen it. *sighs* *examines the mirror* It is in pretty rough shape. It must finally be broken. *sighs* What a shame.
Steven *looking at his reflection again* Doesn't seem broken to me!
Pearl *sighs* Oh well. I guess that's the end of our school.
Steven *starts to get excited* Whoa. Wha... So you could say... School's out for summer?
Pearl Yes. Good, Steven. There are many ways to say the same thing.
Steven *gasps* School's out! *runs out of the house*
(The door closes behind him.)
Pearl *looking at the pile* Hmm. The asymmetry of this pile is really starting to bother me.
[Trans. Ext. Beach House]
Steven *running down the beach* *breathing heavily* School's out! Happy summer vacation, Steven. Happy summer vacation, Beach City! *chuckling* Yeah!
Sadie and Lars *setting up tables* Hey!
Lars (Steven slams into Lars.) Er, watch where you're going, you little f... (Glances at Sadie) Ssssteven!
Steven Sorry! I'm just so excited for summer. Are you excited for summer? I'm so excited for summer!
Sadie *laughs* Uh, I think I'm as excited as I can get about setting up extra seating for the summer rush. But Lars has big plans.
Lars You bet I do! All those out-of-town summer babes traveling away from home without their boyfriends, if you know what I mean.
Steven Nope.
Lars Maybe I'll get a few numbers. Maybe I'll even... call one.
Sadie Ha! Well, yeah, maybe I'll meet a new friend.
Steven That's a great idea - A special new friend to have fun on the beach with in the summer. Maybe if I keep using the mirror to guide me, I'll walk backwards into my own beach-summer-fun buddy! *starts walking backwards*
Lars Next time you see me, I'll be on the arm of a hot woman!
Sadie You can stop talking about it now.
Steven *laughs* ♪ Wo, Wo, Wo, Wo! ♪ Wo, Wo, Wo, Wo! ♪ Wo, Wo, Hee-Hee! ♪ (He imitates Michael Jackson and moonwalks.)
Mayor Dewey's Van May-or Dew-ey.
Mirror Er, watch where you're going, you little...
Steven Huh?
(The truck is coming towards Steven.)
Mayor Dewey's Van May-or Dew-ey.
Steven Nooooo!
[Tires screech]
Mayor Dewey *leans out of the truck* Car wash kid, what are you doing?!
Steven I don't know. Why were you driving down the boardwalk?
Mayor Dewey I'm the mayor— I'm not going to walk anywhere. Now, go get run over somewhere else. I'm late for a speech. *begins to drive again*
Mayor Dewey's Van May-or Dew-ey. May-or Dew-ey.
Steven What just happened?
Mirror *whirs* *laughs*
Steven You work! This is so cool! What's it like being a mirror?
Mirror *whirs* You work!
Steven So you can repeat stuff?
Mirror *chuckling* Yeah!
Mayor Dewey Hello, Beach City, my friends! It's great to be here to celebrate the coming season. A warm summer breeze wafts through the air.
Steven *inhales deeply* PBHT! *fart noise*
(The crowd snickers.)
Mayor Dewey We all look forward to the sounds of the summer season...
Mirror PBHT!
Mayor Dewey ... the smells of the busy boardwalk...
Mirror PBHT!
Mayor Dewey ... the hot, wet ocean wind...
Mirror PBHT!
Mayor Dewey ... the time to take that pressure that's built up all year and just let it out.
Mirror PBHT!
(The crowd laughs.)
Steven Wow, you picked that up fast.
[Time Skip—night time]
Mirror PBHT!
Steven *laughs* You got a lot of mileage out of that joke. You're pretty funny for a mirror.
Mirror You're pretty funny for a mirror.
Steven *chuckles* I'm not a mirror.
Mirror You're pretty funny for a -- Ssssteven!
Steven *gasps* You made something new! Say something else!
Mirror Ssssteven— is— a new friend.
Steven *blushing* Really?
Mirror *laughs* Yeah!
Steven You're my friend, too!
Mirror *laughs*
Steven I got to go tell the Gems.
Mirror Noooo!
Steven Don't be shy, they'll love you.
Mirror *echoing* Noooo!
Steven *chuckles* Don't worry, they're a good audience.
[Trans. Int. Beach House]
Steven Guys! Wait 'till you see...
Amethyst Yo! Ste-man!
Pearl Hello, Steven.
Garnet Howdy. Bang.
Amethyst Want to see something hilarious?
(She moves M.C. Bear Bear towards the pile from earlier, now stacked neatly. Pearl thrusts her spear through it.)
[Metallic "shing" from spear]
Amethyst *laughs*
Pearl You don't understand. Symmetrical means both sides have to be the same! *angry grunting* Oh, gosh! *puts M.C. Bear-Bear into a pile of other stabbed stuff*
Steven M.C. Bear-Bear! Okay, that's great. Anyway, I fixed the mirror!
Pearl Excellent work, Steven!
Steven You didn't tell me it's like a person.
(The Gems all look shocked.)
Pearl Wait. What?
Steven Say "hey." ... Lil' buddy... Uh... excuse us. *turns around* Come on. You want to come out, don't you? You have so much to say and funny noises to share from across the ages. Are we not beach-summer-fun buddies?
Mirror *whirs* PBHT!
Steven *laughs* Just couldn't help yourself, huh?
Mirror *whirs* Just for - you - (Lars appears in the mirror) Ssssteven! *repeatedly laughs*
Pearl It's talking to him? It shouldn't be able to do that. I-it should just be following orders...
Amethyst Garnet, do something.
Garnet Steven. *walks towards him*
Mirror *laughs* Noooo!
Garnet You should just give us back the mirror. It will be safer where we can watch it.
Amethyst Yeah, let's bubble it!
Mirror Noooo! *echoing repeatedly* Noooo!
Steven Wha...
Garnet Steven. Don't make me have to take it from you.
Steven *gasps* It doesn't want to go with you. Don't you hear it screaming?
Garnet Steven, it's just a mirror, a tool. It can't want anything.
(Garnet reaches her hand towards the mirror.)
Mirror *echoing repeatedly* Noooo!
Steven *growls* It wants to be with me! (He slaps Garnet's hand away, which hits her in the face and knocks her visor off. Amethyst gasps extremely surprised and then Garnet stares at Steven extremely angry.)
Steven *gasps* *runs out of the house* Aah-aah! I'm sorry!
Garnet *puts visor back on and clenches fists* That little boy is in big trouble.
Pearl Garnet, wait! I'm sure he didn't understand what he was doing!
[Trans. Ext. Beach House]
Garnet Fan out.
Steven *running* *breathing heavily* *hides behind a rock* *panting* *sighs* What am I gonna do? What's their problem with you? Are you trying to say something?
Mirror *whirs - distorted* Away from home - Let - Me - Out!
Steven I don't understand!
Pearl *distantly* Steven!
Steven Come on! I want to help you! What can I do?
Mirror *whoosh, whirs, distorted* (The mirror displays Steven pulling the gem out of it)
Steven *grabs gem and pulls on it* (While pulling the gem, the water waves constantly splashed to create a pattern seen at the back of the mirror) *grunts with effort and pulls the gem out* Ah!
(The mirror shatters.)
(The Gem levitates, soon forming its physical, humanoid form.)
Steven *gasps* Wha...
Lapis *sighs* Thank you... You didn't— *falls forward, but is caught by Steven* You actually talked to me. You helped me! It's Steven, right?
Steven *breathes deeply* Mm.
Lapis I'm Lapis. Lapis Lazuli. Are you really a Crystal Gem?
Steven Yeah!
Lapis But you set me free.
Steven But— Wha...
Garnet Steven!
(The Crystal Gems run forward and summon their weapons.)
Steven *runs in front of them* Wait!
Lapis You... *raises a huge water-arm out of the ocean*
Steven *gasps*
Lapis You three knew I was in there, and you didn't do anything. Did you even wonder who I used to be?!
(Lapis slams the water-arm onto the Crystal Gems, trapping Garnet underneath it.)
Amethyst/Pearl *skid in opposite directions* *pained grunting*
Pearl Steven, run!
Steven What are you doing?
Lapis I'm Lapis Lazuli, and you can't keep me trapped here anymore!
Steven Huh?
Lapis They're not going to let us leave.
Steven Leave?
Lapis *parts the ocean in half to make a path* Steven, come with me.
Steven Where?
Lapis Home.
Steven B-b-but... B-but I... Uh...
Lapis Fine.
Garnet *grunting with effort* *punches the water arm away* *breathing heavily*
Lapis Don't trust them, Steven. Goodbye. *steps into the parted water and the path vanishes*
(A huge wave knocks Steven and Garnet back.)
Garnet/Steven *pained grunting*
Garnet *coughs and gags*
Pearl Steven! *rushes forward and embraces him* Are you okay?
Steven Yeah. I'm fine. So, that was another Gem?
Pearl *sighs* Yes.
Garnet Steven, you're grounded.
