Speaker Dialogue
[The episode opens outside the Beach House. It is snowing heavily outside and Steven is looking through the window.]
Steven It's amazing.The snow just keeps falling and falling! *Looks at Greg* I'm glad you're staying here with us, Dad.
Greg Yeah, me too buddy. It's way too cold to stay in the van during this blizzard. Besides the heater in the van hasn't worked since I got that sweet mini disk player installed. Which I do not regret.
Steven I've never seen it snow like this before.
Garnet That's not entirely true.
Steven Really?
Pearl You mean back when- *starts laughing* Oh, ho-ho. That was about fourteen years ago. There was a snowstorm happening just like this around then.
Steven Fourteen years... Hey, I'm fourteen years!
Greg That's right, little man. You were only a few months old and it was snowing so hard, I thought we were going to become "Snowman" and "Snowman Jr., son of Snowman." *Pearl gets up while he is talking and sets a kettle on the stove* But Vidalia was out of town visiting family, so she let us crash at her place for a while. It was the first time you-;
Steven *turns to him and shouts* DAAAAD!
Greg I'm not that far away Steven.
Steven Don't forget our... arrangement.
Greg *grabs guitar as Pearl returns to join them* Good gravy.
Steven That's what you get for teaching me to love music!
Greg Luckily, I have a song for this story already.
(Greg plays a song about the struggles that may come ahead in raising Steven alone.)
[Flashback begins, the camera pans down on Vidalia's house in the middle of a snowstorm.]
Greg I could never be, I could never be
(Greg rushes into the house, holding groceries and baby Steven)
Greg I could never be ready for this.
(Greg looks at the baby blanket he's holding and is shocked to see bread inside instead of Steven. Baby Steven pops out of the grocery bag instead and he is relieved.)
(Cut scene to Vidalia's kitchen where Greg is heating up a baby bottle for Steven in a boiling pot.)
Greg I could never be, I could never be
(Greg is eating a peanut butter sandwich while doing so and looks at baby Steven in his other hand. Steven pulls at his hair, making him let go of the pot and dropping the sandwich as the water boils over to his shock)
Greg I could never be ready for this. *grabs the pot again*
(Greg brings baby Steven over to the couch with the baby bottle)
Greg Things start and things end, *Greg puts the bottle in baby Steven's mouth* And isn't it lovely in theory but *Greg suddenly realizes it's cold and uses his foot to turn on the space heater next to them.*
Greg I could never be, I could never be, I could never be ready.
(As baby Steven finishes his formula, he yawns and goes to sleep. Greg sets the bottle on the table and notices a photo of Vidalia, Yellowtail, and young Sour Cream. He looks at it, having a sad expression as he falls asleep on the couch.)
(Time passes. The snowstorm seems to be getting worse as seen through the windows. Baby Steven and Greg are still sleeping when he suddenly wakes up uncomfortable.)
(Starts crying and struggling, Greg wakes up)
Greg Hey, Shtoo-ball. You doing a lot of dancing in there. You wanna get out of there and show me your moves?
(Baby Steven continues crying and moving around until his blanket unravels and his onesie unbuttons.)
Greg Hey now. You unbuttoned all your buttons I buttoned up. *Blows raspberry and baby Steven laughs* Let's get you buttoned back up. *Lies Steven down and buttons his onesie back up* Ookie pookie. There. *Baby Steven coos and unbuttons himself again, exposing his gemstone.* Huh-What? Does your gem need to breathe? *Steven's gemstone flashes over* Hmm. How about *Buttons the top up, but he leaves an area unbuttoned in the middle, to expose his gemstone.* this? *Baby Steven laughs and there's a knocking at the door.*
(Greg opens the front door and it is revealed to be Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl holding gift boxes at the door.)
Greg Oh! Um, heyyy ya'll.
Garnet Hello.
Amethyst Yo Greg, check it out! We brought gifts for little Rose!
Garnet *Sets hand over Amethyst's head* Amethyst. We've gone over this. Steven is a...
Amethyst *Sadly* Human baby.
Garnet And Steven is...
Amethyst Not Rose.
Greg *Lets them into the living room* Can I get you guys anything? We've got water... old plates. Uh... how about some tea?
Pearl No. We're just here to drop off these gifts.
Greg Right. Sure.
Garnet *Hands her box to Steven* Here you go. *Baby Steven coos*
Greg You'll probably have to open that up for him.
Garnet It's just a box made to look like it's been carefully wrapped. *Takes off the top* Ta-da!
(The inside of the box reveals to be a razor and Greg picks it up)
Greg Whoa! Thanks Garnet, but I don't think he needs this.
Garnet Oh, he'll need it. In the future.
Amethyst Let's open mine next!
Greg Wow! Diapers! This is so practical! Wait. Are these adult diapers? They're way too big for him.
Amethyst So tell him to make himself bigger. You can do that! Right, Little Greg?
Greg You can call him "Steven". That's the name Rose and I liked the most.
Pearl Well, whatever you call him, you'll need this.
Greg Uh, thanks. This some kind of kid's book? Oh. A dictionary.
Pearl Obviously, it's the best gift for a being that can't yet communicate.
Greg Well, maybe you guys could use it to look up what a baby is. These gifts are great, but Steven's just too young for this stuff. Nowadays he's really into this. Carabiner! Carabiner!
Amethyst Whoa, he loves it! Hey little Steven!
Pearl Hm. He's certainly captivated with those things.
Garnet Well next time, we'll just bring a big box of keys for Steven.
(Baby Steven giggles and his gemstone begins glowing, gaining everyone's attention)
Amethyst Whoa!
Greg *gasps*
Garnet Ooh!
Pearl Wha??
Greg What's happening to him?
Garnet It's... Rose!
Pearl Is that possible?
Greg Is he gonna turn into a laser?!
Amethyst Relax, y'all, I got it all figured out. Rose is trying to shapeshift back to her old self!
Greg What?!
Pearl She can't shapeshift because she's trapped in a baby!
Greg Trapped in a baby?!
Pearl Rose? Rose, it's me, it's Pearl. Are you in there? Glow twice for yes. *Steven giggles, and grabs her nose* Baby, please. I'm trying to talk to Rose.
Garnet Rose hasn't shapeshifted, and she isn't trapped. Steven is a fusion. Rose could be trying to un-fuse.
Greg Whatever Steven is, something's happening, and I- what can I do to help?
Pearl Well, what do you do with a human baby when it glows?
Greg First off, human babies don't glow. And letter number B... what if they do? Okay. Vidalia has some books on babies I've been reading. They'll help us figure something out. Calm down. You got this. Guys, if this is anything like a fever, then we should... uh... Guys? Guys?!
[Camera cuts to outside, where the Gems have rushed off with Steven in Greg's van. The flashback abruptly returns to the present.]
Steven You kidnapped me??
Amethyst Eeeeeyep!
Garnet Some of our actions were a bit regrettable.
Pearl At the time, we thought it'd be better to handle things our way.
Amethyst Nah, we straight-up 'napped you.
[Back in the flashback, Greg is running outside in the snow, following the direction the van's going in.]
Greg Steven! My van! Give me back my babies!
Amethyst *Looking back in the side mirror* He looks mad.
Pearl He'll thank us later.
Garnet Greg was doing his best up to this point. But the situation has changed. Steven is clearly a gem.
Amethyst Good thing we left without any explanation. All right, Rose. We saw that glow. So why are you still a baby? Is it... really fun or something? *shapeshifts into a baby* Garnet. Hold me. *Garnet holds her in her left hand.* All right, I get it. This rules. But it's been so long, like months! *shapeshifts back to normal* That's longer than I was a toilet! C'mon, Rose! You have to change back! *shapeshifts into a baby* Baby, *shapeshifts back to normal* normal! *shapeshifts into a baby* Baby, *shapeshifts back to normal* normal! *shapeshifts into a baby* Baby... It's so easy! Why can't she do it?
Garnet Because it's not shapeshifting, it's fusion. Steven, I understand Greg is part of you and you don't want to un-fuse in front of him. That would be very rude. But he's not here now. It's just us! You can take a little break. Here, I will too! *unfuses into Ruby and Sapphire, who look at him silently.*
(Baby Steven, who's suddenly afraid and confused by Garnet's disappearance, begins to cry. Ruby and Sapphire are surprised, and they quickly fuse into Garnet again.)
Garnet *Sadly* I'm here! You know me! You know them, too! *sits back down* I don't understand!
(Greg is still running outside and he passes by a snowy hill where young Jenny and Buck Dewey are sledding. He looks around.)
Greg Steven! Steven! How am I gonna catch up with them? *Looks over, noticing a dog and a sled* Dog. Sled. Dog. Sled. Dog sled. Hey! Hey, you kids! *Runs over to them*
(As Baby Steven is still crying, Pearl slams on the brakes, stopping the van and she goes to the back, joining the others.)
Pearl Everyone calm down. Look. We can all see her. She's right there! She just can't reform because... she has this... baby around her. *Picks up Steven* Rose, I know you're in there. I can let you out. *Her hand suddenly goes down near Steven's gemstone* We'll be... together... again. *Her hand rests on Steven's gemstone, when he begins laughing.* I can't. I can't! She wanted this so much. I just... don't... understand... why! *Begins to tear up* Everything should grow, and everything should change, and isn't it so great how it comes so naturally to humans? Well, it's not natural for us! It's not natural for me.
Garnet It will be- for him.
Amethyst *Sadly* ...What about Rose?
Garnet This isn't about Rose. From now on, everything has to be about Steven.
(Greg catches up to the van, and he is being chased by the dog from earlier with the sled tied to it.)
Greg Help! Help!
(Garnet opens the back door to let Greg jump in)
Greg Ugh, thanks. *Looks at Pearl, who's still holding Steven* Hey, wait a minute! Why did you take Steven on a joyride in the middle of a blizzard? What's the big idea?
Amethyst It wasn't really a big idea, just a bunch of small ideas that never came together.
Garnet My apologies, Greg. We thought we knew what Steven was, but we didn't.
Greg Honestly, I'm not sure if I do, either. I never glowed when I was a kid.
Pearl We never were kids.
Greg I don't know how we're gonna figure this out, but I think we'll have a better shot if we do it together.
[Back to the present. The kettle goes off, and Pearl heads back to the stove.]
Steven Wow. You guys were wrong about everything.
Pearl Well, that was a *laughs* ha-ha, really long time ago, wasn't it?
Amethyst Cut us some slack, will ya?
Garnet *Takes off her visors* We couldn't have known what to do. Even me.
Greg Especially me.
Steven No, I mean, about changing and growing. *Pearl comes back over with tea and hands a mug to Greg. She picks up the tea bag and gives it to Amethyst to eat* And how it doesn't come naturally to you? But look at you now! I know you'll never stop missing Mom, but I bet she would've loved this. I do.
Everyone Hear, hear!
Pearl It wasn't such a big deal when that teenage girl kidnapped Steven.
Greg That was his babysitter. She took him to the park! You really scared her when you threw that jungle gym at her.
[Star iris closes on the exterior of the Beach House.]
