Meanwhile...Gauntlet is still trapped in the basement!

(The scene opens with the Mechanical Maniacs watching TV.)

Hardman: Feels good to finally have a brain...

Snake: I guess...

Top: Liked you better sans-brain! Less dangerous...

Hard:...You're so mean...

(Hard starts crying.)

Top: Aw, come on...sorry, okay?

(Hard continues crying.)

Hard: (Thought) Heh. They think I'm really crying! Hah-HAH!!

TV News Lady: Unusual things have been happening all week. Inconsistencies are found everywhere in the world and -

(Suddenly, the Red Phone rings! The Mechanical Maniacs rush to answer it in hopes of another gig!)

Top: Yeah? What!? Chaos everywhere!? We're needed? We're getting paid!?!? We're on it!

(Top hangs up the phone and turns to address the Team.)

Top: Alright guys, we gotta -

(Gauntlet is spotted tip-toeing out of the room.)

Gemini: And where do you think YOU'RE going?

Gauntlet: Well...I...y'see...Rats.

Snake: Y'know, I'm sick of all your stupid solo adventures! We should all have solo adventures!

The Other Maniacs: YEAH!

Gauntlet: Ah, that's cool. Go ahead! I was just gonna step out anyway!

Top: Oh, you're not going anywhere!

(The Mechanical Maniacs surround Gauntlet.)

Gauntlet: Wha...? HEY!

(They tie Gauntlet up and throw him in the basement.)

Top: You can come out when all the adventures are over!

(Top slams the door and locks it.)

Gauntlet:...'Kay! I'll just be down here! Chillin' and stuff! Don't you worry about me!

Top: Alright guys, we got lots of problems to clean up, so we gotta split up!

Spark: Right! Solo adventures for all of us!

All: LET'S GO!

(The Maniacs teleport out!)

Gauntlet: Alright you can let me out now! Come on, the joke really isn't all that funny anymore!


Gauntlet: Crap.

(Several minutes pass with Gauntlet struggling against the metal ropes with futility!)

Gauntlet: Grrrrr...Hate those guys...revenge soon...kill all...

(Suddenly, the door opens!)

Gauntlet: Who!?

Somebody: Oh, goodness me. I forgot you were down here. Won't be a minute.

Gauntlet: Sigma! Juno! You gotta bust me outta here!

(Author's Note: Sigma and Juno were reprogrammed into the Mechanical Maniacs' servants in a strange twist of fate in episode # 7!)

Juno: Heavens. You look uncomfortable.

Gauntlet: No kiddin'! Get me outta this!

Sigma: But...the other masters tied you up! To do that would circumvent the orders of the other masters!

Gauntlet: Aw come on! I reprogrammed you, ME! (Well, and Groovy Kat) Just untie me!

Juno: Oh, I am confused now.

Sigma: Whatever shall we do?

(Sigma and Juno struggle with conflicting orders.)

Gauntlet: Ugh. This is going to be a long day...

(10 minutes later and it is still a stalemate.)

Juno: Now, the other orders came first...

Sigma: Hm...but these orders are here now...

Juno: Seven of the others told us not to untie him...

Sigma: Hm...but he is a master too...

Both: Hmmmmm...

Gauntlet: Somebody shoot me!

Somebody: Glad to!

(Galvatron and Torchman burst into the room! Internal alarms go off!)

Juno and Sigma: Ahhhhh!!!!! It's those awful, awful men! Go away! Go away!

Galvatron and Torch: Huh?

Torch: Juno and Sigma? What did they do to you?

Sigma: I-I'm warning you...We, we have powers...!

Galvatron: Bah! Away with you! (Transforms into a cannon and knocks out Sigma and Juno!)

Galvatron: Now I shall have my revenge...

Gauntlet:...Just try it!

(Galvatron gags Gauntlet.)

Galvatron: Stuff it! I have been waiting for this a very long time...


Galvatron: Weenie! Wuss! Arrogant snob! You think you're so smart? Why aren't you rich? If I'm an idiot you must be a...reject! "That's a secret"...Real original! Even I could come up with better!

Torch: Come now, sir...ripping off Slayers won't help...

Galvatron: QUIET!!!!! I have been waiting years for this!!

Torch: Years??

Galvatron:...Do you want some too?!?!

(Gauntlet rolls his eyes.)

Gauntlet: Mffle murmble muffle muff!

Galvatron: What was that? (Removes gag.)

Gauntlet: Just kill me!!

Galvatron: I will decide when you die!!! ME! NOT YOU! ME!!!!!!


Torch: Now?

Galvatron:...Now's good.

(Torch fires Torch Arm and Galvatron fires his cannon!)

(Gauntlet is hurt, but the blast also destroyed the ropes, so he dashes out of the basement and locks Galvatron and Torch inside!)

Gauntlet: Now that should slow them down...

(Galvatron and Torch burst through the door!)

Gauntlet: CRAP!!!

(Gauntlet runs away while Torch and Galvatron shoot at him!)

Gauntlet: Crap crap crap! Must think of plan! Call for help!

(Gauntlet takes out his hated cell-phone and calls up Snakeman!)

Gauntlet: Agh! I hate to use this thrice-acursed cell-phone, but I have no choice! Pick up, damn you!

(Snakeman picks up the phone.)

Snake: Wuzzap!?

Gauntlet: Snake! Listen, I need -


Gauntlet: Rassa frackin' WAHHHHHHZZZZAAAAPPPPP!?!?!?

Snake: Hah hah hah! (Hangs up phone.)

Gauntlet:...God DAMMIT!

(The accursed cell-phone is destroyed by Torchman.)

Torch: No calling for help!

(Galvatron and Torch quickly corner Gauntlet.)

Gauntlet: Now guys...I know you think I'm a big pain in the ass...but seriously...

Galvatron: Shut up! Now you...DIE!!!!

(Suddenly a huge explosion from elsewhere in the city rocks the Mechanical Maniacs Warehouse!)

Torch: What was that!?!?

Galvatron: Who cares, but -

(Gauntlet has disappeared by using Shadowman's ninja skills!)

Galvatron: Hmmmmm...he has to be here somewhere...but where...

(Suddenly Galvatron and Torch are struck from behind!)

Gauntlet: Heya! Miss me!?

(Gauntlet has grabbed the gun he stole from Galvatron in episode #8 and uses all his Gauntlet and Shadowman powers to blast Torchman and Galvatron unconscious!)


Juno: Sir, we heard a struggle and now we are here to help.

Gauntlet:...NOW you come.

Sigma: Yes, well...sorry sir...

Gauntlet: Just clean up.

Juno: Affirmative.

Sigma: Yes!

Gauntlet:...I wonder how those other guys're doin. Better go and turn in Galvatron and Torchman to the police before they come back! I will keep the reward all for myself! Hoo-RAY!

(So Gauntlet has saved the base and defeated Torchman and Galvatron. What of the others? Read on...)
