[A blue null "looks" at Mainframe from Lost Angles. Then it slithers along the ruins past other nulls, climbs a wall, and "looks" at the tower of Hexadecimal's Lair. Fade in on Hexadecimal's looking glass, which shows brightly flashing blue shapes before revealing The Supercomputer. The camera pulls back to reveal Hexadecimal seated before the mirror.]
Where do you want to go today?Hexadecimal:
Oh, look, Michael, Skuzzy, the Supercomputer! [laughs] If only Megabyte knew how easy it is to find. Well, you know what they say - he got the smarts but I've got the power!
[Hexadecimal leans back in her chair and gestures at her looking glass, which is again flashing blue.]
Hexadecimal:
Besides, all he has to do is ask nicely.
[Hexadecimal laughs maniacally while Mike and Skuzzy look on.]
Hexadecimal:
Ah! This bores me! Michael, what have you got for me?
[Mike the TV jumps and trembles a little. Then a black and white movie appears in his screen.]
Mike:
Coming soon to a VidWindow near you! A Dino Di Horrendous production of the classic Bride of Frankinome!
[The title is superimposed on his screen. Then the word CHILL appears.]
Mike:
You'll chill at the good doctor's performance.
Dr. Frankinome:
[laughs theatrically] Throw the switch, Igor! [laughs]
[Igor, a lopsided Zero, throws a switch to Dr. Frankinome.]
Dr. Frankinome:
Thanks.
[A silly musical sting plays, and Igor smiles and waves. Then the Frankinome Monster, lying on the table, begins to come to life.]
Dr. Frankinome:
It's compiled! It's compiled! [laughs maniacally]
[The Frankinome Monster is sitting on the table. The Bride of Frankinome is looking at him. the word THRILL is superimposed.]
Mike:
You'll thrill at the love interest!
[The Frankinome monster looks around, swinging his feet. The Bride of Frankinome opens her eye wide, points, and hisses. Then we see a null in a container held by Dr. Frankinome. The word SPILLS appears.]
Mike:
And the spills!
[Dr. Frankinome drops the container. The null bounces, squealing.]
Dr. Frankinome:
Oops! [nervous laughter]
Hexadecimal:
[screaming] I've seen this before! [smiling] I liked it. [threateningly] Show me something else! Or else. C sharp or B flat
[Mike shakes, frightened. His screen goes staticky, then shows a binome in a Valkeyrie costume standing on a stage mountain peak. She sings a brief phrase, then holds a painful high note. The moon in the background falls off one of its hinges. Skuzzy's glass dome breaks.]
Hexadecimal:
[alarmed] My looking glass! No! No!
[The looking glass cracks, and then the glass explodes outward. Beyond the glass is a whirling greyness, with ropy things swirling about. They begin reaching toward Hexadecimal.]
Hexadecimal:
[screaming at Mike] What have you done?!
[The tentacles seize Hexadecimal. She screams. Mike and Skuzzy, leeping their eyes on her, slowly back away.]
 
[Hack does something towards the camera viewpoint, then waves to the side. Slash appears behind him. Then a VidWindow with Megabyte appears behind both of them.]
Megabyte:
Hack! Slash!
Slash:
He means us.
[Both turn to face the VidWindow.]
Hack and Slash:
Yes, boss!
Hack:
Ah, you rang, your hugeness?
Slash:
All ready and waiting, oh evil one! Oh! [to Hack] Did I say evil?
Hack:
Oh, what a giveaway.
Slash:
I said evil once but I think I got away with it.
Hack:
Three times!
Slash:
What?
Hack:
You said it three times!
Slash:
What, evil?
Hack:
That's four!
Slash:
Oh, I hate that.
Megabyte:
Silence! Have you fools managed to complete Phase One of the operation?
Hack:
Absolutely! Phase One and Phase Two completed!
Slash:
And two!
Hack:
Sir! [shoves Slash away] I said that already, ya idiot!
Slash:
[returning] They're finished!
Hack:
They're finished, I told him that.
Slash:
You bet, one and two. [wiggles the two fingers he is holding up]
Hack:
Oy.
Megabyte:
Ah, excellent. Proceed with Phase Three at once. And, um, uh, [leaning close] remember what happens to those who fail me.
[The VidWindow closes.]
Slash:
Okey-dokey!
Hack:
[waving] Ah, yessirree Bob! At once!
Slash:
Right away!
Hack:
Phase Three it is then!
Slash:
[waving his fingers eagerly] Uh, what is Phase Three again, Hack? Wait until we get to Phase 4 - changing the diaper.
[Both turn to the crib behind them, inside of which are several toys and a green null. Hack is holding a book, "ABC of Fairtyales".]
Hack:
Read him a story and put him to bed.
[Slash leans forward and wiggles a finger between the wooden bars of the cradle.]
Slash:
Ahh-
Hack:
Don't put'cher finger there.
Slash:
-cute little fellow.
[The null seizes his finger, turns yellow, and throbs, as if sucking his energy. The null squeals, and Slash jerks back.]
Slash:
Yeow!
Hack:
I toldja.
[Slash's finger dangles. Hack puts a hand to his face in exasperation.]
 
[Five multicolored nulls are in a tank. They "startle" into spiky shapes when something noisy and presumably painful is done to them. Dot looks away and raises a face shield.]
Dot:
All right, that's not gonna work. Let's move on.
[There are several null-filled tanks in the room. Enzo and AndrAIa are standing by one, Dot by another. Bob and Phong are at a control console. Phong is punching buttons.]
Bob:
Okay, Phong, let's try another one. How about ninety-five oh eight.
AndrAIa:
I do not understand, Enzo. Nulls are horrible! Why're your friends trying to help them?
Enzo:
AndrAIa, listen. This is what happens to Mainframers when they lose in a game. These used to be Sprites like you and me.
AndrAIa:
All of them? The city is full of nulls!
Phong:
Yes, my child. We lost many dear friends before Bob came to Mainframe and helped us defeat the User.
[Bob, who has been punching buttons with his middle finger, looks up and grins when his name is mentioned.]
AndrAIa:
Then what is all this for?
Bob:
We're testing a theory, AndrAIa. We think that a game retains the basic encryption of all active players when the User wins. It's called a "saved game." So if a null is trapped in the game that created it, there's a chance - a slim chance - that the sprite will be recompiled. And of course, if we then win the game, the sprite would remain whole and in Mainframe.
[AndrAIa stares at Bob, utterly baffled.]
Enzo:
[to AndrAIa] What he means is, the game that nullified the Sprite can also bring it back.
Bob:
That's what I said.
AndrAIa:
[looking at Enzo] He said it better.
Enzo:
Thanks, AndrAIa.
AndrAIa:
[to Bob] How often do sprites return?
Dot:
Well, so far it hasn't happened., mainly due to the fact that nulls avoid games. So we're looking for some other way to restore them. Not having much luck, I'm afraid.
[AndrIAa and Enzo look at the nulls]
AndrAIa:
So each of these used to be a real person?
Shoulda disabled the cookies
 
[Seen from the chaos behind Hexadecimal's shattered mirror, waving tentacles hold her. She cries and struggles. A creature with tentacles waving in front of its body come out of a spirographic formation and floats out to Hexadecimal. It hovers before her face, its spiraling tentacles apparently hypnotizing her. Then it disappears into her shoulder. A black stain spreads across her upper body.]
 
[In Lost Angles, multicolored nulls suddenly sit up and take notice.]
 
[Hack is reading to Nibbles, who is still in the crib. Slash is holding a Guardian bear out toward Nibbles. The null curls up as if to sleep.]
Hack:
And, with the magic golden key she opened the door freeing the Null Prince.]
[Nibbles squeals and "looks up."]
Slash:
Ahhh, lookit that! He's payin' attention!
 
[In the tank, the nulls all squeal and "look" in the same direction. AndrAIa claps her hands over her ears as if in pain.]
Bob:
What's wrong?
AndrAIa:
Do you not hear it?
Dot:
Hear what? What're you taking about?
Enzo:
Look, Dot, Frisket can hear it too!
[Frisket is looking offscreen and growling.]
Bob:
Glitch, scanner.
[A design appears in Glitch's wheel.] Bouncy bouncy
Bob:
These readings don't make any sense. Wait, the signal's getting stronger!
[The nulls are thrashing about, jerking the tank around as they throw themselves against the walls.]
Dot:
They're going crazy! They're trying to get out!
Bob:
Phong?
Phong:
[looking at the control console] Hmm, very strange. The signal is being emitted from Lost Angles!
Bob:
Megabyte!
Enzo:
Hexadecimal, Bob.
[AndrAIa put a hand to her mouth to cover a giggle.]
Bob:
What? Right, Hexadecimal. Did I say Megabyte?
 
[Nibbles is circling around in the crib. Slash is still holding out the Guardian bear. Nibbles exits the crib between the bars]
Hack:
What a good boy! Look, now he's going for a walk!
[The bots watch as Nibbles slithers away.]
Slash:
Uh, what phase number is walking Nibbles?
Hack:
Daaah, there is no number for walking Nibbles.
Slash:
Oh, that means he just run away.
Hack:
Yep, that is right. He run away all right.
Slash:
He's gone.
Hack:
He is. Look at 'im go.
[Both bots pause. They look at each other. Then they scream.]
 
[Bazillions of nulls are converging on Hexadecimal's Lair.]
 
 
[Mike the TV and Skuzzy back away as Hexadecimal's shadow falls over them. The camera pans upward, from her feet to her face. She is now all black, with silver accents and a grey, fanged, evilly grinning mask. She leans forward, opens her mouth, and hisses and waves a pointy tongue at the camera.]
Mike:
[backing away] Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but that's a new look for you. [laughs nervously] I like it. [gulps]
 
[The nulls are climbing the exterior of the Lair.]
 
[The nulls are still thrashing in the tank.]
Dot:
Phong, I'm gonna release them.
Phong:
Yes, my child. But it may be wise to follow them.
Bob:
Way ahead of ya, Phong. Dot, Enzo.
[Bob tosses minimized zip boards to Dot and Enzo.]
AndrAIa:
Can I come?
Bob:
No, AndrAIa. It'd be better if you stayed with Phong.
AndrAIa:
But I can help! I heard the signal before your sensors even picked it up.
Phong:
You are not ready for this, child. You do not know the ways of Mainframe.
Enzo:
Don't worry, AndrAIa. I'll be back soon.
AndrAIa:
Okay, Enzo. You're the Guardian. You know best.
Enzo:
C'mon, Frisket!
[AndrAIa looks adoringly after him as he leaves. Dot, Bob, Frisket, and Enzo walk out.]
Bob:
[to Enzo] You still haven't told her you're not a Guardian?
[Enzo looks alarmed.]
 
Dogpile on the Virus [Mike and Skuzzy are still standing in Hexadecimal's shadow.]
Mike:
[TV announcer voice] This just in! Media sprite and verminous familiar- [aside to Skuzzy] nothing personal - [announcer] threatened by strangely altered Virus! News at-
[Hexadecimal hisses and waves her tongue.]
Mike:
Um - eh - ah - In this final report - AH!
[Mike dodges as nulls swarm the throne dais, burying Hexadecimal in a thrashing. blobby mass.]

[PLACE COMMERCIAL HERE]

[Hack and Slash fly to Lost Angles and land in the open plaza closer to Mainframe. Their jets retract.]
Hack:
[frightened] Oh my! [gulps] Lost Angles!
Slash:
Ooh, Hexadecimal! She may see us!
[Slash taps his shoulder. His blue shell turns iridescent.]
Hack:
We had better go into camoufl - g - camou - g - stealth mode! Squash and Stretch
[Hack taps his shoulder and gains nullish colors. Slash wheels out of frame.]
Hack:
Hey! Where have you gone?
Slash:
[singsong] I don't like L.A.
Hack:
[looking over at Slash] Hey, shush! We - we gotta make no noise.
Slash:
WHAT?
Hack:
I said, SHUUUUUSH!
[Slash is knocked back by the force of Hack's yell. Hack motions for Slash to follow him. Both turn and see Mike the TV and Skuzzy. All startle, and Hack and Slash scream. Mike jumps onto Hack's front and begins yelling.]
Mike:
It's coming! It's coming, I tell ya! Backspace for your lives! Run! Run! Run! And when you've finished, run some more!
[Mike Shakes Slash as he speaks. Then Hack clears his throat. Mike and Slash look over.]
Hack:
We're lookin' fer a null.
Slash:
That's right. Uh, have you seen one?
[Mike jumps off of Slash.]
Mike:
Have I seen one? HAVE I SEEN ONE? That's a joke, right?
Hack:
Hey, whaddayou mean, joke?
Slash:
Joke. Noun. A thing said or done to cause laughter. Something not in earnest or ridiculous.
[Hack and Mike start at Slash and blink.]
Mike:
Hack, Slash, it's your lucky day! You were looking for a single null. Well, what about two million? It's Nullzilla!
[Mike runs between Hack and Slash, toward the Gilded Gate bridge. Hack and Slash both gulp.]
Slash:
Oh boy.
 
[A small swarm of nulls, the same colors as those in the lab tanks, slithers toward the Gilded Gate Bridge, with Bob, Dot, Enzo, and Frisket following.]
Bob:
Just as we expected. They're heading straight for Lost Angles. Up, up, and awry
Dot:
[looking up] Heads up, boys. We've got company.
[Hack and Slash are flying away from Lost Angles. Mike the TV and Skuzzy are riding on their backs. Bob, Dot, Frisket, and Enzo stop. Enzo grabs Frisket around the neck.]
Bob:
Enzo, keep Frisket back. Dot, stay frosty.
[Frisket whines.]
Enzo:
Frisket, watch them, but don't eat them. Yet.
[Hack and Slash come in for a landing on the bridge in front of Our Heroes. Mike the TV jumps off Hack and kneels on the bridge.]
Mike:
Sweet ground! [kisses the bridge] Oh, I love you I love you I love you!
Bob:
All right, you guys. What's goin' on?
Hack:
[frantically] Ah, Bob, ya gotta help us!
Slash:
Yeah, help! We're in big trouble!
Dot:
Calm down, you two. What's the problem?
Hack:
First of all, we lost a null.
Slash:
Yeah! Nibbles!
Bob:
You lost Megabyte's pet null, Nibbles? Hoo hoo, boy, are you guys in trouble!
Mike:
Uh, may I just stop you there? A-heh, thank you. Although, this is a fascinating story, I feel I must draw your attention to a more pressing matter.
Bob:
Really. What's that, Mike? Stay-Puft Play-Doh Man
Mike:
THAT!
[Mike points down the bridge. A giant, roughly humanoid blobby shape made of nulls is clumsily walking toward them.]
Bob:
What in the net?
Mike:
[clears his throat] At 23:30 today the nulls of Mainframe mounted an attack on the Virus Hexadecimal. She was unprepared for the assault and was easily overcome. The nulls covered her completely, forming the monster this reporter has named Nullzilla.
[Frisket is growling.]
Enzo:
Cool.
Dot:
Enzo, this is serious! Mike, why would they attack her? Hexadecimal controls the nulls.
Mike:
She did, until IT got her.
Bob:
It?
Mike:
Look, I know it sounds crazy, but something horrible came through her looking glass, and it got her! And it wasn't Alice.
Bob:
And?
Mike:
And really changed her, I personally think for the worse.
Bob:
And then all the nulls attacked her.
Mike:
On the nosie!
Enzo:
Uh, guys? Is it time to go see Phong yet?
 
[Bob, Dot, Enzo, AndrAIa, Mike, Frisket, and Phong are looking at a table-like VidWindow displaying Nullzilla. A diagram of the monster is split in halves and opened, and zooms in on one half showing Hexadecimal within.]
Phong:
This is remarkable! The nulls are trying to isolate Hexadecimal from the rest of Mainframe!
Dot:
Why?
Phong:
They are protecting us from whatever came out of her mirror.
Bob:
But the nulls will eventually drain all of her energy!
Enzo:
All right, woohoo! No more Hexadismal equals no more Nullzilla!
Phong:
It is not quite that simple, Enzo. Hexadecimal has transfinite power limits.
Enzo:
Huh?
Dot:
What Phong means is, it will take a long time for the nulls to drain her energy, and Hex's attempts to break free are devastating the city.
Bob:
We can't afford to wait. We've gotta do something now! For Mainframe's sake!
 
[Hack and Slash fly up to Nullzilla.]
Hack:
Hey, can you see him?
[Both hover in front of the wall of nulls.]
Slash:
Who?
Hack:
NIBBLES!
Slash:
Oh. Nope, I can't. Oop! [flies upward and points] Wait a minute! There he is!
[Nullzilla lashes out at Slash, knocking him into the side of a building. Hack flies up to where Slash was.]
Hack:
That's not him!
 
[Bob, Dot, et cetera are still around the table-like VidWindow.]
Dot:
Well, we know physical force can't hurt nulls. We'll have to try containment.
Phong:
Do not worry. I have prepared something for just such an emergency.
Bob:
You're prepared for a giant monster made entirely of nulls stomping around Mainframe?
Phong:
That is correct!
Bob:
How do you plan for that?
Phong:
[shrugs] Ah, lucky guess?
[Phong turns away. The VidWindow closes.]
Phong:
But first, we must get you into your uniforms!
[Bob and Dot exchange skeptical looks. Dot shrugs. Phong wheels over to a doorway.]
Phong:
F A B! They also serve
[The doorway opens, and Phong wheels into the darkness. Fade in on a goofy-looking photo of Phong, which is on the wall in an office. Phong is sitting at a desk, twiddling his thumbs. AndrAIa is standing beside it. Bob, Dot, Mike, and Frisket are wearing color-coded superhero-ish costumes and looking at each other in disbelief. Bob is in black, Mike in blue, Dot in ladybug pink, and Frisket in red. Bob tries to speak, but is muffled by his helmet. He pulls the part in front of his mouth away.]
Bob:
You can't talk in these things! And I feel ridiculous!
Mike:
You feel ridiculous?! Look at me! I'm a g-nat! What's a g-nat?
Dot:
I dunno, but it suits you.
Phong:
I am sorry, but these uniforms are necessary. The helmets will enable you to control your vehicles.
Bob:
What vehicles?
Dot:
Hey, where's Enzo?
[On cue, Enzo - in green - begins leaping back and forth across the screen, making karate-ish moves and yells. All watch as he bounds around. He ends up posing on one leg.]
Phong:
Ah, grasshopper. There you are.
Enzo:
[pants] Sorry.
[AndrAIa giggles.]
Phong: Bye-bye
To your places!
[The wall pivots, and Enzo disappears. The floor drops out beneath Frisket. The wall spins behind Bob. The seat Dot is on lowers. The rug Mike is standing on spins, replacing him with a television.]
Phong:
Now all we can do is sit and wait.
AndrAIa:
I will stand, if it's all right with you.
[Bob slides down a purple chute. Dot slides down a pink chute. Enzo slides down a green chute. Frisket slides down a greenish-yellow chute. Mike bumps down a blue chute. Tubes lower in a large hangar, depositing Bob, Dot, Frisket, and Enzo on the ground. Mike's chute drops him with a clunk. All five look at each other.]
Bob:
[unenthusiastically] Okay, let's do it. Black beetle turbo pincer force.
[Musical sting. A giant black beetle-like vehicle appears.]
Dot:
Ladybird accelerator spotted carapace force.
[Musical sting. A giant ladybug-like vehicle appears.]
Enzo:
Grasshopper sig-pulse hopping force!
[Musical sting. A big grasshopper-like vehicle appears.]
Frisket:
Woof woof woof woof woof!
[Musical sting. A big yellowjacket-like vehicle appears.]
Mike:
[unenthusiastically] Gnat slightly annoyed high-pitched buzzing force.
[High-pitched musical sting. A little bitty gnat-like vehicle appears.]
[The vehicles start up and fly out in order, the gnat buzzing around after them. A hangar door opens, and they fly out. View of Bob's cockpit, with the other four vehicles visible in the background.]
Bob:
So, what's the plan, Phong?
Phong:
You must get your vehicles up to speed and, using the signal I gave you, join them together to form a giant robot that will battle Nullzilla! Insects in disguise
Bob:
You're kidding, right? These form a what?
Phong:
A giant robot.
[The five vehicles try ro align in the air in various ways. None produces a giant robot.]
Bob:
Phong, this is ridiculous! We're never gonna get a robot outta these! They don't even fit together!
Phong:
You must give the signal all at once!
[The vehicles fly through the air in tight formation.]
Bob:
Okay, let's try this again.
[Their heads appear in front of a giant icon.] Talking Heads
All:
Reboot robot entomologizing force!
[The icon zooms onto the chest of a giant Robot, which is standing in Kits Sector. Camera closes in on its chest, through a window in which we see Our Heroes.]
Bob:
[surprised] Huh! Go figure. All right, let's go kick some null butt!
[The robot begins thrashing around like a poorly controlled marionette.]
Bob:
How d'you work this thing, anyway?

[PLACE COMMERCIAL HERE]

[Nullzilla is stumbling around Mainframe. Binomes run past a projection of the monster, screaming and panicking theatrically.]
[Hack and Slash wheel up on a street. Slash looks at Hack and shrugs. Hack screams, doing a wild-eyed take. Nullzilla stomps on them both, flattening them.]
Hack:
I hate nulls.
Slash:
Me too.
Urban Renewal
 
[Nullzilla walks up to Bob's apartment building and bumps against it.]
Bob:
[VO] Stomp on my apartment?
[The camera viewpoint moves, revealing a giant robot standing behind Nullzilla. Close in on the robot's face.]
Bob:
[VO, cont] I don't think so.
[The robot steps forward and lays its hand on Nullzilla's shoulder. It goes in up to the wrist. The robot pulls its hand back out. The fingers dangle limply. Viewpoint shift to the cockpit.]
Bob:
This is no good. We're gonna have to try the subway punch.
[The robot throws a few punches at Nullzilla's "head". It dodges back. The robot does some foot work, then punches Nullzilla, knocking it back onto Bob's apartment building. The action is repeated from three camera angles: behind, above, and in front.]
Bob:
Oh no! I just redecorated.
[Nullzilla gets up and reforms itself, then "spits" the eightball out at the giant robot. The ball lands at the robot's feet. The robot kicks it back at Nullzilla, making it spin and fall.]
 
[Phong is still at his desk. Bob is speaking to him out of what appears to be either a small laptop or a large makeup compact.]
Bob:
Phong, we're managing to keep it under control but we can't do this forever!
Phong:
Use the matic, my son!
[The giant robot gestures, arms out.]
Bob:
[VO] The what?!
Phong:
[VO] Use the Disrupro-matic!
[The giant robot pats itself as if searching its pockets.]
Bob:
[VO] What Disrupro-matic? Ladylike
[The robot pulls an exaggeratedly feminine pose, with its hips turned, gesturing from the wrist.]
Dot:
[VO] Phong, we haven't got a Disrupro-matic!
Phong:
Just a moment, my child!
[Phong taps a button on his "laptop." He sees the Disrupto-matic - a great big futuristic war axe - still in the hangar, behind glass.]
Phong:
Ohhh, dear.
[Phong taps the controls again, restoring the view of the cockpit.]
Phong:
Try and contain the monster for a little longer. I will get the Matic to you!
[Phong looks at AndrAIa.]
 
[Nullzilla gets to its "feet" again. The giant robot punches at it in the style of Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots.]
Mike:
And it's a left! And a right! A left! A right! It's amazing! Nullzilla's withstanding the blows! How much more punishment can it take?! Bob, Dot,
Enzo:
MIKE!
 
Phong:
Be careful, child! Stay clear of the null monster!
[AndrAIa, now wearing an orange insectile helmet, is in a cockpit.]
AndrAIa:
Do not worry, Phong. I know what I am doing.
[AndrAIa moves a control stick. The Disrupto-matic bursts out of its glass case and flies out of the hangar. AndrAIa presses a button. The Matic flies up out of the ground.]
[The giant robot, seemingly tired, punches Nullzilla. Nullzilla headbangs the robot three times, knocking it to the ground. It picks the robot up and sets it on its feet, then draws way back and headbangs it hard into the ground. Then it begins leaping up and down on it over and over, its "feet" on either side of the robot. As the robot jerks, the cockpit bounces. The Matic flies toward the scene.]
AndrAIa:
Hang on, Enzo! I'm coming!
[The Matic flies down. The robot reaches up and grasps it. The handle closes and the blade locks into place. The robot throws Nullzilla off.]
Enzo:
All right, AndrAIa!
[The inhabitants of the giant robot's cockpit are visible on a screen in AndrAIa's control panel. Frisket and Mike wave at her. Hiya
Bob:
Good work, AndrAIa. Get up here.
[AndrAIa walks in and stands by Bob.]
Bob:
[cont] Take the arm elevator to level fifty-four and follow the signs to the chest cavity.
[Bob looks over and sees AndrAIa. He is surprised. She smiles.]
[The giant robot walks up to Nullzilla. which is still on the ground, and holds the disrupto-Matic up in both hands. The blade begins spinning. It lowers the blade into Nullzilla, causing null blobs to go flying everywhere. Binomes run in all directions. Hack and Slash stand while Nulls fall all about them. Many hit Hack]
Hack:
Dohhh! Ow! D'ooch! Ah! Eeh! Oh, the boss is gonna be back soon! We're doomed!
Slash:
No we're not! Here he is!
[He extends a finger toward a nearby peach-colored null. It "bites" him.
Slash:
Ow! Ooh! Oh, no, that's not him.
Ah feel faint
   
[Enzo, AndrAIa, Bob, and Dot are now out of the giant robot, still in their uniforms. Bob is kneeling by Hexadecimal, who is now back to her normal red coloration and sprawled on the ground.]
Bob:
We did it. Thanks to you, AndrAIa.
Enzo:
You were awesome, AndrAIa! You really saved out bitmaps!
[AndrAIa looks pleased and bashful.]
Dot:
We make a good team.
[Hexadecimal, sad-masked, moans and turns onto her back.]
Bob:
Glitch, stats.
Dot:
How is she, Bob?
Bob:
It's strange. She's back to normal. Whatever caused all this is gone.
Dot:
Yeah, but where to?
 
[Exterior, Silicon Tor. In the interior, Nibbles slithers back into its crib. Megabyte bends down and picks the null up. It squirms in his grasp.]
Megabyte:
Ah, there you are - Father! [He laughs gloatingly, then clears his throat.] Now, where are those two bumbling fools?
[The same creature that attacked Hexadecimal burns a hole in the wall of the Tor and flies toward Megabyte.] New dental work
Megabyte:
Nooooo - arrgh!
[Nibbles splats on the ground. As Megabyte's feet - now black and silver - step in front of it, it rears up, then flees. The camera pans up Megabyte, who has his fingernail claws extended. Megabyte hisses as the camera, revealing golden teeth and a long, snaky tongue.]
