INVADER ZIM
"BATTLE FOR MEEKROB"

PART 2 OF 2

Ext. Resisty camp

 

The mechs march towards some encampments holding Dib.

 

DIB

Maybe we could just talk this over…? I’m not even sure what’s going on!

 

The mechs reach the main tent. The mech holding Dib peaks inside and opens up. Inside is a little counsel of some of the Resisty aliens.

 

RESISTY ALIEN 1

We caught a scout for ya!

 

LARD NAR

Bring him here!

 

The mech hurls Dib inside. He crashes into the blobish resisty member and gets vomit all over him.

 

DIB

Eeeewwww….

 

The mechs leave.

 

LARD NAR

I’ve never seen your species. State your business.

 

DIB

Um, my name is Dib. I come from the planet Earth in the Milky Way Galaxy. This army… it’s against the Irkens, isn’t it?

 

RESISTY MEMBER

That is correct.

 

DIB

Oh man! This is fantastic! Anything I can do to help, I’m here!

 

LARD NAR

Earth you say, eh? (to Spleenk) Add ‘Planet Earth: home of the large headed people’ to the list. (to Dib) Glad to have another aligned to our cause! I am Captain Lard Nar, and this is the Resisty! We are sworn to fight the Irken machine to the DEATH!

 

DIB

Now this, THIS is my lucky day! Oh, that Zim’s gonna weep when he sees I’ve got a whole army backing me! So… what’s up?

 

SMIKKA SMIKKA SMOODOO

We are preparing for war. You came just in time. The Irken Armada regrouping nearby. They plan to swarm us!

 

DIB

Check! Now… what are you guys gonna do about it?

 

The aliens glance at each other.

 

LARD NAR

We’ve got ourselves a good opening punch to get them on the ground with us.

 

DIB

Gotcha. And then?

 

RESISTY ALIEN

And… then…?

 

DIB

Yeah, once you’ve got them out of the skies, how do you plan to deal with their ground troops?

 

SPLEENK

Ooh, I know! Let’s burn their flags and boycott their snack foods!

 

SHLOONKTAPOOXIS (with a mouthful of Irken chips)

Aw, maaan!

 

DIB

Wait a minute! So you guys are going up against what is quite possibly the largest fighting force in the Universe… without a plan!?!

 

SPLEENK

I just gave you a plan.

 

DIB

That’s not a plan! YOU’RE ALL CRAZY! Okay… maybe we can still try and salvage this whole idea, but it’ll take some quick thinking!

 

Dib and the Resisty form a huddle.

 

Ext. Meekrob forest

 

Zim is still at the cliff edge with all his weaponry. He has his binocular helmet on and is aiming his death wave cannon at the Resisty headquarters tent.

 

ZIM

Unbelievable! Look at them, GIR! Walking around like they own the place! Hundreds of alien species toil for the Irken race for their entire lives, and yet that isn’t good enough for these rebels! They should be happy the Irken Empire even keeps them alive! What do they want, a steady pay? It’s always more, more, more! Are they ever satisfied? (aiming) Almost… almost…

 

Zim is locked on target.

 

ZIM

There!

 

CANNON COMPUTER

Fully charged and awaiting command!

 

ZIM

Time to say goodbye to your little futile attempt at Resistying!

 

GIR

It’s my turn!

 

GIR starts pulling on Zim.

 

ZIM

What are you doing, GIR!?!

 

GIR

You’ve had enough time, now I wanna play!

 

ZIM

No, GIR! No!

 

While trying to pull Zim away, GIR steps all over the place, pushing down various levers and pressing various buttons with his feet. The cannon nozzle drops down so that it points at the ground under them. The blast goes off and the ground bellow is destroyed, sending them tumbling down the cliff face. Zim screams and GIR cheers gleefully. They eventually hit the bottom, but by that time, all of Zim’s weapons are destroyed.

 

GIR

I won! I get the secret prize inside!

 

ZIM (holding back immense rage)

Now GIR… why did you have to do that?

 

SKOODGE (from a distance)

Hey Zim! It’s me!

 

ZIM

Skooooodge?

 

Skoodge runs up to Zim. He looks very badly beaten.

 

SKOODGE

Boy, am I glad to see you! I thought I’d never escape those horrible Meekrobs! They were right on my tail, ya see, and then-

 

ZIM (interrupting)

Skoodge…

 

SKOODGE (ignoring Zim)

-I did the most amazing thing ever in my-

 

ZIM

Skoodge!

 

SKOODGE (still going)

-entire career as an Invader! Though I was surrounded, I managed to-

 

ZIM

SKOOODGE!

 

Skoodge shuts up.

 

ZIM

Nobody cares! No one wants to hear about your little Skoodge adventures!

 

GIR

I wanna hear the story…

 

ZIM

Hehe, no GIR. You don’t.

 

GIR

Oh.

 

ZIM

Well, it was nice seeing you, Skoodge, but I have a mission to complete!

 

SKOODGE

Hey! I can help with that!

 

ZIM

NOOOO! This is a secret no-Skoodges mission for Zims alone!

 

SKOODGE

Oh, okay. I’ll see ya around!

 

Zim marches off with GIR following. Skoodge lingers and checks out some of the weapon wreckage. He picks up a bashed up drill arm claw thing.

 

SKOODGE

Hmmmmm… Maybe I could… maybe… MAYBE! YEAH, I GUESS I COULD DO THAT!

 

Ext. Space

 

The Irken Fleet has gathered near planet Meekrob.

 

Int. The Massive

 

PURPLE

Okay, so what exactly are we waiting for again?

 

RED

The fleet isn’t all here yet. They’re coming from every corner of the Empire; we can’t expect this to be quick.

 

PURPLE

Why does the fleet have to be so spread out? I’m getting tired of this!

 

RED

Would you quit your whining? Once the Armada is all here, the Resisty won’t stand a chance!

 

PURPLE

They don’t stand a chance against any of our Armada! Which is why we should just attack now! (to an officer) Put their camp on the main view screen!

 

The officer does this, and the Tallest see the scarce army in the camp as well as the hidden army in the forest.

 

RED

Wow! That’s pathetic! Look at their horribly obvious hiding places!

 

PURPLE

Come on! Let’s just squash ‘em now! Forget the rest of the fleet!

 

RED

Can you believe how worried we were earlier? It’s laughable! I mean, we, the Almighty Tallest, rulers of the most powerful race in the UNIVERSE, scared of some insubstantial uprising!

 

PURPLE

Yeah, who woulda thunk it. (to officers) Now, let’s get a round of snacks up here!

 

Ext. Resisty encampment

 

Most of the mech army is gone, hiding in the forest. Various aliens carry around large pieces of glass.

 

LARD NAR

Okay, is everything in place? Good, good! Let’s just hope everything works as well as planned, this is kind of a big risk.

 

SHMIKKA SHMIKKA SMOODOO (running out of a tent)

Sir! They’ve begun their approach!

 

LARD NAR

So it begins.

 

SPLEENK

It’s about time, this was getting kinda boring…

 

Int. Meekrob Forest

 

Many of the mechs wait in the cover of the woods. Suddenly, Tak’s ship rockets out of the forest.

 

Int. Tak’s ship- cockpit

 

Dib and Shloonktapooxis sit in the cockpit.

 

DIB

Here we go!

 

SHLOONKTAPOOXIS (disappointed)

I wanna be in a death robot…

 

Ext. Meekrob- space

 

Tak’s ship flies into space, away from the oncoming Irken Armada.

 

Int. Random Irken Vessel

 

The Tallest appear on a large view screen giving a message that all the Irken ships are receiving simultaneously.

 

RED

There she is, folks! Planet Meekrob!

 

PURPLE

Yeah! Now blow ‘er up!

 

The deck crews get into a working frenzy, pressing buttons left and right.

 

RED

Concentrate all fire on the Resisty Headquarters!

 

Ext. Space, above Meekrob

 

The Armada hovers above the planet just out of reach of its atmosphere. A glow comes from the fleet as they all charge their weapons at the same time. A huge mass of lasers shoots down onto the planet, focusing on one point: the Resisty. As soon as contact is made, the beams are suddenly reflected back into space, destroying many ships.

 

Ext. Resisty encampment

 

Aliens pry open huge containment cube packages labeled ‘FROM: Planet of the Broken Glass.’ They take out the large mirror shards and hold them over their heads. All of the tents and structures have mirrors carelessly lain over the tops.

 

LARD NAR

More mirrors! More glass! Bring it here!

 

Lard Nar motions to an empty spot on a roof. Some aliens put a slab of glass over it. A laser hits one of the aliens, as he no longer has glass to cover himself.

 

Int. Forest

 

Valvus stands at his death weapons, scratching his head and trying to figure them out. A laser is reflected into the forest and hits Valvus.

 

Int. The Massive

 

Red and Purple watch the view screen, which shows their ships getting hit by the reflected lasers. Red is speechless. Purple is angry.

 

OFFICER

My Tallest! Request permission to cease-fire!

 

PURPLE

Hold up a second.

 

OFFICER

Sir! We’re loosing ships fast!

 

PURPLE

Give it a minute!

 

OFFICER

SIR! We’re shooting OURSELVES!

 

PURPLE

FINE! Stop with the shooting!

 

OFFICER (into intercom thingy)

CEASE-FIRE!

 

PURPLE

Happy now?

 

RED

Those Meekrob… they must’ve formed some kind of super energy field! This wasn’t supposed to happen! Bad things don’t happen to the Irkens! The Tallest’s plans DON’T FAIL!!!

 

PURPLE

Get a hold on yourself, man! This is just a snag! We’ll get ‘em on the ground!

 

Ext. Meekrob- space

 

Huge spacecraft carrying ground troops approach Meekrob.

 

Ext. Resisty Camp

 

Lard Nar looks out from under his mirror slab.

 

LARD NAR

Success! We’ve matched their strength with wits!

 

RESISTY ALIEN

Duuuh… I’ll say!

 

RESISTY ALIEN 2

They’ll be on the ground soon!

 

LARD NAR

To the forest! Now our fate is in the hands of that bigheaded child.

 

Ext. SPACE

 

Tak’s ship flies in space, veering left and right at random times. Dib follows Shloonktapooxis’ directions

 

SHLOONKTAPOOXIS

Turn left here! Now right! Right! Wait, that was supposed to be a left! Turn around! No, wait, it was a right!

 

DIB (getting impatient)

Arg! SLOW DOWN! Do you even know what you’re talking about!?!

 

SHLOONKTAPOOXIS

…no.

 

DIB

Well, we’re lost! Thanks to you…

 

SHLOONKTAPOOXIS

Welcome!

 

DIB

Is there some kinda map in here?

 

ONBOARD COMPUTER

Accessing galactic map! (holographic map appears) State desired destination.

 

DIB

Perfect!

 

ONBOARD COMPUTER

Planet Perfect not found…

 

DIB (to Shloonktapooxis)

Er, what was it?

 

ONBOARD COMPUTER

Loading Planet Wutwassit…

 

SHLOONKTAPOOXIS

Oh yeah! Outpost IGBN!

 

ONBOARD COMPUTER

Nearest IGBN Outpost located in the Plarg Sector.

 

DIB

Uh, great! I guess… Computer! Take us there!

 

ONBOARD COMPUTER

Right.

 

Ext. Meekrob Forest

 

An Irken convoy ship lowers to the ground. Ground troops exit parked ships. Frontline BattleMechs, Maim Bots, and Plasma-armed Battle Tanks patrol the area. The hatch to a Plasma-armed Tank opens and Sgt. Hobo 678 sticks his head out. He now has even more mechanical parts.

 

678

Okay, soldiers! You know the drill! Form a parameter around the resistance forces and then move in! We’ll crush those phlegm-toting Gasqueegasplorches!

 

The tanks and mechs go off to encircle the encampment. Zim hops onto one of the Plasma-armed tanks. He knocks on the hatch until an Irken officer pops out.

 

ZIM

Hey! Gimme this tank! I’m an Invader!

 

Before he can respond, Zim pulls him out of the tank and tosses him at a tree. He hits his head and gets knocked out. Zim hops into the tank, followed by GIR.

 

Int. Plasma-armed Battle Tank

 

ZIM (to the officers in the tank)

It’s your lucky day, ‘cause this tank is now under the command of Invader ZIM!

 

The officers shrug.

 

OFFICER (whispering)

Hey… Isn’t that guy a defective?

 

ZIM (having overheard)

TREASON! That guy’s with the Resisty! GIR! Eat him slowly starting with his smallest toe.

 

GIR

It’s my lucky day!

 

The officer runs around the inside of the tank, screaming, as GIR chases him.

 

ZIM

Now we march!

 

The rest of the officers give each other glances.

 

ZIM

I said MARCH!

 

Ext. Meekrob forest

 

The tank lurches forward into the forest. The officer regains consciousness and begins chasing after his tank.

 

Int. IGBN Outpost hanger

 

Tak’s ship is parked in the hanger. Sorbic, a worker for the news outpost, walks up to Dib and Shloonktapooxis.

 

SORBIC

Welcome to Outpost #8731, home of one of the many signals broadcasted by InterGalactic Breaking News- where the Universe gets its news!

 

DIB

Hi there. We’ve got something that needs to be aired-

 

SHLOONKTAPOOXIS

And it’s AWESOME!

 

DIB

Yeah… It’s a huge story, something the UNIVERSE needs to know!

 

SORBIC

Thanks for choosing IGBN! Please fill out a form and I’ll transfer it to the outpost manager. He’ll review the content and deem whether or not it is worthy for airtime and then it’ll appear on the broadcasting waves sometime within the next month.

 

DIB

You don’t understand! This is very important! People need to see this right now!

 

SORBIC

Look kid, I can’t do that! It’s against our policy. Here’s one of our forms (Sorbic hands Dib the form). Be sure and put me down under the ‘employee help’ box. My name’s Sorbic, employee code 375.

 

DIB

Uh, listen…. Sorbic… Many lives are at stake! This footage could help bring down the Irken Empire if aired-

 

SORBIC

No can do, kid. I could get demoted if I- Did you say ‘bring down the Irken Empire’!?!

 

Dib nods.

 

SORBIC

Is your tape ready? I’ve been hoping for a way to help crush those horrible insectoids since they conquered my planet and sent my people to work at this stupid news station! Come with me!

 

Int. IGBN Outpost- Broadcast room

 

Sorbic leads Dib and Shloonktapooxis into a dark room full of view screens displaying breaking news messages.

 

SORBIC

What’ve you got for me?

 

DIB

A tape that shows the leader of a resistance force declaring war on the Irkens.

 

SORBIC

Sounds great! Now… where’s the tape?

 

Dib glances around and then gives a worried look. Shloonktapooxis starts to cough. Suddenly, he hurls up a camcorder.

 

SHLOONKTAPOOXIS

There ya go.

 

Dib laughs sheepishly as he wipes the camcorder with his shirtsleeve. Sorbic sighs and takes the camcorder. He removes the tape and sticks it into a slot on the wall.

 

SORBIC

This here is the master control feed. Everyone within range of our signal will be seeing this, and a chain reaction starts when the signal reaches more news outposts. The whole galaxy’ll be watching this within a few minutes, I’d say!

 

DIB

Haha! Beat that, Zim!

 

Sorbic pulls the master control feed lever.

 

Int. Hobo 678’s Plasma-armed Battle Tank

 

Hobo 678 talks to the Tallest through a view screen.

 

678

My men are in position!

 

RED

Good, sergeant! Make your moooooo-

 

The transmission switches to the tape of Lard Nar.

 

LARD NAR

Enemies of the Irken Empire! Now is your chance to strike for revenge!

 

678

Huh!?! What do those squad-doogies think they’re doing!?!

 

Int. The Massive

 

The Tallest also watch Lard Nar. The resisty army is visible behind him.

 

LARD NAR

I have amassed an army on the Ploof system planet of Meekrob where we are striking our death blows to the Irken Armada as you watch this recording!

 

PURPLE

Death blows? I don’t see any deathblows! I’m fine!

 

RED

Cut the transmission! (the feed stops) What was that supposed to be?

 

PURPLE

Yeah! That little Vortian guy already talked to us earlier!

 

RED

I’ve got a bad feeling about that feed…

 

Int. Hobo 678’s Plasma-armed Battle Tank


678 continues to watch the transmission.

 

LARD NAR

…And together we can bring an end to the tyranny of the Irken Empire this day! Uh, there’ll be free snack foooo-

 

An earthquake rocks 678’s tank, cutting off the transmission.

 

678

What was that!?!

 

OFFICER

Major activity in the forest, sir! Explosions maaaan!

 

OFFICER 2

Sergeant! Plasma-armed Battle Tank #8 isn’t responding to any command signals!

 

678

Get its commander on the main view screen!

 

Zim’s face appears on the view screen.

 

ZIM

My former trainer! Watch me use my skills as a soldier to conquer the resistance forces myself! Here I go!

 

678

What are you doing here, Zim? I had hoped never to see your hideous face again!

 

ZIM

Jokes aside, I am here on a mission from the Almighty Tallest themselves. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some filthy alien beast-nuggets to squash!

 

The transmission ends.

 

678

Grrr! Change of plans, since Zim’s screwed everything up! We’re gonna rush ‘em with everything we’ve got!

 

Int. Forest

 

Zim’s tank randomly fires at everything in sight. The Resisty mechs scatter to avoid the gunfire.

 

Int. Zim’s tank

 

GIR sits at the gun controls, laughing insanely.

 

OFFICER (to Zim)

Uh, sir, maybe if you let one of us man the guns we’d actually hit something.

 

GIR

I’m hitting ALL SORTS of things!

 

ZIM

Stop with the talking! Just destroy! DESTROY!

 

Int. Forest

 

Complete chaos starts as the Irken forces move in. The Resisty mechs hold their ground for a while, combating the Irken death machines. Meekrob in the form of mallets bash of the Irkens.

 

Int. Meekrob Temple- Prison cell

 

The cell shakes.

 

ZEE

Something’s going on out there!

 

GOOCH

ARRRRRGGG! I wanna blow something up so BAAAAD! We gotta get outta this place!

 

FLOBEE

Hmmm… IDEA! It’s crazy enough to work!

 

Flobee runs into the energy field again. Suddenly, a drill pops through the floor. Skoodge crawls through the hole made by the drill.

 

SKOODGE

Hey, guys! I’m rescuin’ ya!

 

ALL

SKOODGE!!!

 

LARB

Outstanding job!

 

SNEAKYONFOOTA

I knew ya could do it!

 

TIM

Invader Skoodge ROCKS!

 

The invaders enter the hole.

 

SKOODGE

Wow, thanks everyone! Ya know, I almost didn’t make it here. I went in the wrong direction a couple of times, and then I ran into some sort of underground hostile civilization that wanted to sacrifice my organs in some sort of ritualistic-

 

TENN

No one really cares, Skoodge! Just get in the hole!

 

Tenn kicks Skoodge into the hole and then follows into it.

 

Int. Meekrob Forest

 

The Irkens surround the Resisty and swarm them.

 

RESISTY ALIEN 1 (in a mech)

There’s too many of them! We’re falling apart here!

 

LARD NAR (in a mech)

Where is that human!?!

 

RESISTY ALIEN 2 (in a mech)

We can’t hold out much longer!

 

Lard Nar sighs.

 

LARD NAR

Retreat! Through their ranks!

 

All of the Meekrob swarm a few tanks on one side, causing them to short out. The Resisty crawl over the tanks and escape into the plains.

 

Int. 678’s tank

 

678

Victory! They won’t last much longer!

 

An Irken soldier appears on 678’s transmission screen. He is transmitting from the now empty Resisty encampment.

 

SOLDIER

Sir! We’ve stormed their makeshift village and found nothing of much concern. However, there is one thing of interest.

 

The soldier holds up a mirror shard.

 

678

Hmmm…

 

Int. The Massive

 

COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER

Transmission from the planet.

 

Hobo 678 appears on the screen.

 

678

Sirs! The battle goes well!

 

Red and Purple let out a long sigh.

 

RED

That’s a relief.

 

678

After raiding their village, we found that they used the powerful mirrors of the Planet of Broken Glass to shield themselves. They’ve been driven out of the forest and are now on the run-

 

PURPLE

Wait a second… Did you say mirrors? Didn’t we recently place a huge order of mirrors from that place?

 

RED
Our new reflective palace on Irk! They’re using OUR mirrors!

 

PURPLE

They duped us! You’re not supposed to mess with the Almighty Tallest like that! Am I right?

 

678

They’ll soon get what’s coming to them! We’re planning an advance on them to-

 

RED

No need! They don’t have their mirrors-

 

PURPLE

OUR mirrors!

 

RED

They don’t have… our mirrors to protect them now! We’re going to give them an organic sweeping that makes Blorch’s look like a… not… so… severe… sweeping!

 

Ext. Meekrob plains

 

The Resisty forces watch outside of their mechs as Irken ships enter the atmosphere. The sky is full with a good portion of the Irken Armada.

 

SPLEENK

This doesn’t look so good.

 

SMIKKA SMIKKA SMOODOO

At least we shook them up a bit!

 

LARD NAR

So long, my fellow freedom fighters! This might be our end, but now the Universe has heard our battle cry! Surely others will take up our cause! Someday the Irken Machine will fall!

 

RESISTY ALIEN
Resisty ROCKS!

 

The Irken ships begin to glow as they prepare to fire. The Resisty nervously awaits their demise. The ships fire, but before their blasts can get anywhere, a metal bubble closes over the ships and saves the Resisty. The buble swings around and opens, sending the Irken ships hurtling into space.

 

Int. The Massive

 

PURPLE

What just happened!?! Huh!?! Huh!?! I need to know!

 

RED

That can’t be… Planet Jackers? That’s it! That fake treaty we made with them is off!

 

A transmission from Dib appears on the main view screen. He is now on board a battle ship with various alien representatives behind him.

 

DIB

Well now, so you’re the Irken leaders?

 

PURPLE

Hey! Aren’t you one of those monkey creatures from that planet Zim’s on?

 

DIB

That’s right. The Resisty has backup! Now we’re more than a match for your army!

 

SORBIC

Aag-Nak of the Planet Jackers, Emperor Bub Woobies of the Nhar-Gh’ok, Fleg Astergon of the Smerks, just to name a few of the important figures who have pledged armies to the cause of destroying the Irken race!

 

BUB WOOBIES

That’s right, Irken scum! We’re here to stop you from spreading your filth any further!

 

Int. Abductor Ship

 

GREEN

Is that why we’re here?

 

BLUE

I don’t know, I thought I heard something about free fooood!

 

Int. Resisty Backup Ship

 

AAG-NAK

Enough talk! Let’s do this! Attack!

 

The space battle starts. It doesn’t last long and the new armies quickly overpower the Irkens. The Abductor Ship nudges the Massive like a bumper car.

 

Int. The Massive

 

RED

I never thought I’d say this, but… retreat!

 

PURPLE

This is all your fault!

 

Purple points at a random officer. Guards rush in and drag him away.

 

Ext. Space

 

The Irken Armada flies off into space.

 

Ext. Meekrob Plains

 

The Resisty watches as the Irken Army boards its ships and begins to rise back into space.

 

LARD NAR
We did it!

 

Dib’s new ship lands. Dib exits, followed by the aliens onboard. Shloonktapooxis immediately gets into an empty mech.

 

LARD NAR

We won, thanks to you, Dib! Now the Resisty is stronger than ever before!

 

DIB

I do what I can.

 

SMIKKA SMIKKA SMOODOO

It won’t be long until they are completely destroyed!

 

MEEKROB

For your efforts in aiding the Resisty and for saving our planet, you shall henceforth be known as Ambassador Dib of planet Meekrob!

 

DIB

Wow! Thanks! It was nothing, really! Hey look, there’s one more tank down there!

 

Dib points to the edge of the forest, where Zim’s Plasma-armed battle Tank crawls out.

 

Int. Zim’s tank

 

The officers head for the hatch. An alarm blares.

 

ZIM

Hey! Where are you guys going?

 

OFFICER

Dontcha hear that alarm? It’s a full retreat!

 

OFFICER 2

See ya. Well, hopefully not.

 

Their bubble helmets activate and neat little jetpacks extend from their PAKs. They rocket out of the tank.

 

ZIM

Fine! Leave! Zim needs no assistance! I can easily win this war myself!

 

GIR

Hey master! Isn’t that your best friend on the TV?

 

GIR points to the monitor, which shows Dib standing on the cliff.

 

ZIM

Heeey! It can’t be! DIB!?! What’s he doing here!?! I bet this is all his fault!

 

Zim pops out of his tank hatch and yells to Dib.

 

ZIM
Hey, DIB! Hey! Hey! Hey! Come down here and FIGHT ME!

 

LARD NAR

Come on, men! Let’s destroy that Irken!

 

DIB

No! Wait! …This one’s mine!

 

Dib climbs into a mech.

 

DIB

My own mech! This is the coolest thing since… that last mech I had!

 

SHLOONKTAPOOXIS (in his own mech)

I know, isn’t it awesome?

 

Dib leaps over to where Zim is.

 

DIB

Okay, Zim. Time to put an end to this!

 

A fight sequence ensues. Zim and Dib exchange blows at each other. Zim trips Dib’s mech and pins it down. He aims a cannon at Dib.

 

Int. Zim’s tank

 

GIR

YeeeHAAAW! Make me a Dib pie!

 

Ext. Meekrob Plains

 

LARD NAR

Should we… help him?

 

RESISTY ALIEN

Yes! …after a little while…

 

Zim pops out of the tank hatch.

 

ZIM

Ha, Dib! Now I get to spill your organs all over your favorite clothes with stains that won’t easily rinse out!

 

DIB

Nooooo!! Wait, my shirt’s the least of my worries.

 

ZIM

We’ll see about that!

 

Zim reaches down for the lever. Suddenly, an explosion rips through the tank. At the edge of the forest, a charred Valvus crawls out with his weaponry.

 

VALVUS

Gotcha!

 

DIB

Phew…

 

GIR runs out of the wreckage covered in flames.

 

GIR

It BURNS! IT BURNS! THANK YOOOOOU!

 

The Resisty rush over and grab Zim and GIR. They shove them into Valvus’ cannon.

 

DIB

Ha! You didn’t win Zim! Now your entire race is on the run!

 

ZIM
This isn’t over, Dib! You can’t stop the mighty Irken race! (to Valvus) Why are you so intent on stopping the awesome power that is ZIM anyway?

 

VALVUS

Once, there was an Irken named Zim who clogged a Smeet-chute by shoving another Smeet into it.

 

ZIM

Yeah, so?

 

VALVUS

I… was that Smeet.

 

ZIM

Yeah, so?

 

VALVUS

Uh, explosions? Immense pain? Suffering?

 

ZIM

Yeah, so?

 

Valvus growls in frustration.

 

DIB

Say goodbye, Zim!

 

ZIM

Huh? What was that?

 

Dib presses a button and Zim is launched into space along with GIR.

 

GIR (excited)

I think we’re gonna die!

 

Int. Dib’s kitchen

 

Dib talks to Prof. Membrane

 

DIB

-And so then their alien race was severely weakened! And victory is close! Maybe now people will believe me!

 

MEMBRANE

Haha! Son, what have I told you about your hallucinations?

 

DIB

No, dad! This really happened! I’ve got proof! Meet Shloonktapooxis!

 

Shloonktapooxis enters from the bathroom.

 

SHLOONKTAPOOXIS

Hey, man! How’s it goin’?

 

MEMBRANE

GAZ! Get out while you still can! Your brother’s INSANITY is contagious now!

 

Prof. Membrane runs away, screaming. Dib sighs.

 

Ext. Surface of an asteroid

 

Zim and GIR stand on the surface, severly beaten up.

 

GIR
Now we’re on planet Po-tay-toe.

 

ZIM

They thought they could stop me, but they’ve failed! Oh, how they’ve failed! I’ll be back! Yes, YES! I’ll be back and I’ll be more amazing than EVER BEFORE!

 

Zim cackles evilly. Suddenly, a comet collides with the asteroid. Roll credits.

 

Back to part 1!
