[OPEN SCENE: DAVIS' SOCCER PRACTICE]
Boy: Kick it!
Davis: No! ugh!
[DAVIS tackles the boy]
Tai: You walk much, Davis?
Davis: *nervous laugh*
Coach: Alright team! Hustle in. Quiet down! Alright. Our first scrimmage is this Saturday. It's against last year's champions.
Davis: Woah! That's the team with that braniac kid! He's good at soccer, he's good at sports...he's good at everything!
Coach: Hey hey! Watch the name calling. He's Ken Ichijouji!
[INT. - COMPUTER ROOM]
Yolei: As captain of his soccer team, Ken Ichijouji led his team to victory last year by scoring a record-setting 45 goals!
Tai: Woah. This kid may even be better than I am!
Cody: I bet he could be in the olympics if he wanted to!
Davis: He's not so tough! I never got a chance to beat him! That's cause we never played his team last year!
TK: You guys got knocked out early! You didn't even make the playoffs!
Davis: Very funny, TE!
Kari: You think you can beat him?
Davis: Well, I don't have to flat out beat him! If can make it a close game to that guy, I'd be a living legend! And everyone knows how much chicks dig living legends.
Yolei: Oh, Davis?
Davis: Uh oh, it's starting already!
Yolei: When you see Ken on the soccer field, will you get his autograph for me?
Cody: Yolei and Ken, sittin' in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G!
Yolei: Hey watch it, Cody. And besides, I didn't say I wanted to KISS him, duh, I just want to marry him!
Davis: If you want to meet him, ask for his autograph yourself!
Yolei: Oh, I guess I could do that...
Kari: Let's all go to the game and you can ask him then!
Davis: Hey, don't you want *my* autograph?
[at DAVIS' APARTMENT]
DemiVeemon: Can I come to your game, too, Davis?
Davis: Sure! You can watch me wipe the field with Mr. Perfect! I'll show *THEM* who's the man!
[at the SOCCER GAME]
Kari: Good luck Davis!
Yolei: Don't forget to hug Ken!
Tai: Give him a kiss, too! *laugh*
Davis: Ha ha.
[a BUS arrives]
Davis: Enjoy the attention while it lasts, pal.
Yolei: Oh, I can't believe it's really him!
Davis: When I woke up this morning, I was just a regular kid. When I go to bed tonight, I'll be a hero.
Tai: I hope Davis isn't getting in over his head.
Davis: [thinking] Tai probably thinks I'm getting in over my head. [aloud] Where's Ken?
Kari: Where is he?
TK: Izzy? No, we're waiting for Ken!
Yolei: Uh, we know that. Ken's no coming, is he Cody?
Cody: Will you stop asking if I say yes?
Yolei: No I won't!
Poromon: Lucky for me I have no spine!
Davis: Uh, excuse me, any of you know when that Ken kid is supposed to be here?
Boy: Well, he's got a soft drink commercial to shoot, then he's having a meeting about a soccer ball being named after him.
Boy2: Ken hardly has time to play soccer anymore.
Davis: I'll never get to play him!
Tai: Hey Davis, can we talk? Even if Ken isn't here, his teammates are still champions. If you're not careful, they'll use you as the soccer ball!
Davis: No way.
TK: But you gotta know that if you play last years champions...
Kari: Win or lose, you'll still be a hero!
Davis: Yeah! I'll still be a living legend! Cool!
Yolei: Why do I have to be here if Ken isn't here? It's not like I don't have important things I could be doing you know.
Cody: But what about Davis?
[the GAME starts]
Davis: I gotta play as well as Ken. I just gotta!
[DAVIS and the others play a good round, and DAVIS scores a goal]
Kari: It's rewinding. There. You look good on camera!
Davis: Thanks, Kari. I kicked butt out there, didn't I?
DemiVeemon: And you kicked the ball good, too!
Davis: Yeah, that too! *laugh*
TK: You nailed that shot, Davis!
Tai: Hey, you guys only lead by one goal. The game's still wide open, and Ken could still show up.
Davis: And what's Ken gonna do? Please. If we were here right now, I'd show him...
Other Girls: HE'S HERE!
Davis: Me and my big mouth.
Yolei: Oh my god, it can't be real! I can't believe it! Somebody pinch me! Oww! He looked right at us! Oh, I'm going to faint!
Ken: Huh? Grrr...hmm.
Davis [thinking]: That's what all the fuss is about? I dunno, he doesn't look so tough.
Tai: For all the attention he's getting, that guy sure knows how to keep his cool.
Davis: Hey, I'm cool!
Tai: More like likewarm!
Davis: Oh, that's so funny I forgot to laugh.
Coach: Hey, Ken, we're glad you could make it.
Ken: Sorry I'm late, coach, but there was something I had to do first.
Coach: Don't worry about it. We're just glad you found the time for us at all! Can I put you in the game now?
Ken: If that's what you want.
Announcer: Now substituting, Ken "The Rocket" Ichijouji!
Davis: Hi, I'm Davis. Nice ta meetcha!
Yolei: Oh my gosh, he looked right at me, Poromon! Can you believe he's even cuter in person than he is on TV? I could just hug him all day!
Cody: He's not an accordion, Yolei.
Kari: He's just a kid like you, Davis!
TK: You can outrun him!
Tai: You can do it! And even if you can't, we won't think any less of you, man!
Ken: Some nice friends you got there.
[the game starts. KEN runs around DAVIS, and starts playing wildly.]
Tai: Did you catch that move?
Kari: He's fantastic!
Yolei: Hands off, I saw him first!
Announcer: Goal scored by The Rocket!
Davis: Houston, we have a problem.
Yolei: He's so amazing and did I mention dreamy?
Cody: Would you like for me to pinch you again?
Yolei: Yolei Ichijouji. Ken and Yolei Ichijouji!
Tai: Now that Ken's tied up the game, I wonder how it's going to affect Davis' confidence.
[the game starts up again]
Davis: Woah, how'd he do that?
Tai: Davis isn't looking too good out there.
Kari: Ken's running circles around him! It's like Davis isn't even there!
TK: Easy shooting goals into an empty net! Ken doesn't just have skill, he leads his team like a General leads his army!
Davis: I don't believe this guy! He's not just good, he's great!
Ken: Stick to the playbook I wrote, everyone! We've got em on the run! All forwards and midfielders move up!
[DAVIS tackles KEN, and KEN falls]
Tai: Nice tackle! Have a good trip Ken, see you next fall!
Announcer: Time's run out! And the Green Tomachi team, led by Ken "The Rocket" Ichijouji, wins 9-1!
Davis: He Ken, is your leg okay? Sorry about that tackle. I guess I caught you off-guard.
Ken: I barely felt it. Too busy thinking about scoring goals.
Davis: So I guess you heard. Your teammates probably told you about how I was dominating the field, how unstoppable I was before you came.
Ken: I don't know. Somebody may have mentioned something about your play. Keep it up and you might win a championship.
Davis: Well, once you came along, and you guys got so far ahead, I figured it was all or nothing, so I just went for it on that last play.
Ken: I was obvioulsy focused on scoring another goal and didn't see you coming. That play never fails.
Davis: Well, it did against me!
Ken: Indeed. Well, my worthy adversary. Farewell, until we meet again in battle.
[after the game]
Davis: And then we shook hands, and he said he admired me.
Tai: Oh, come on.
Kari: I've never seen you this happy about losing before!
Davis: It wasn't that bad. He called me his worthy adversary. I mean, The Rocket practically said I'm as good as he is!
Yolei: Ugh! I can't believe you didn't get his autograph!
Cody: Need a pinch?
TK: That sliding block you did was ultra-cool, Davis!
Kari: Yeah, cool!
DemiVeemon: It made my toes tingle!
Davis: You know what I predict? I betcha me and Ken will be on the same championship team someday.
Tai: I think you're getting ahead of yourself. Why don't you try something? Why don't you try scoring at least one goal against him?
Davis: Very funny, Tai. But I guess you've got a point. I'll have to try that...
All [minus Yolei]: *laugh*
Ken: *laugh* Go ahead. Laugh while you are still able. For the time draws closer to when you shall bow before me. No one is my equal, as you shall find out soon.
[INT. - COMPUTER ROOM - DAY]
Yolei: Give me your hand?
Yolei: I'll tell you why! Because I said so!
Davis: Here ya go.
Yolei: Since you shook hands with Ken, if I shake hands with you, it'll almost be like I'm shaking hands with him! Ugh...I can't do it. It's not the same. I need to see my beloved in person.
Cody: I can't believe it!
Upamon: You're dreaming...let me pinch you!
Cody: It's a control spire?
Kari: What's it doing there?
Gatomon: Controlling...spiring...the usual.
Cody: It must have been built overnight.
TK: So just where is it located?
Cody: I don't know. This map doesn't show the points of interest.
Upamon: It's the Forbidden Valley of No Return!
Kari: Why do bad guys always name things like that?
TK: It's in their job description! It's right after really stinky breath!
Cody: Even if this place was called 'The Valley of Dickies and Bunnies', with acontrol spire there, there's trouble.
TK: We've got to destroy it before it's used to control all the digimon, yeah?
TK: What are we waiting for? Let's go Davis!
Davis: You really sure about this? DigiPort open!
[TRANSFER to DIGIWORLD]
Kari: Well, this valley sure looks forbidden, alright.
Davis: A few duckies and bunnies would spruce it up!
TK: Come on, quit kidding around. The Digimon Emperor could be around here anywhere, so stay sharp!
Cody: Let's stay together!
Yolei: This valley is kind of quaint and homey.
Davis: More like homely!
Kari: Quiet, you guys! You don't want the emperor to hear us coming!
[YOLEI and HAWKMON are swallowed by the ground]
Kari: I bet he heard that!
Gatomon: My gosh, they're gone!
[TK, KARI, and CODY are swallowed by the ground, too]
Davis: Woah! Did you see that, Veemon? The ground just ate our friends!
Veemon: Maybe it'll swallow us next!
[the rest of the kids continue to fall deeper]
Veemon: I think you'd better call Tai to help us out.
Davis: No way, Veemon! That'll take way too long! Help me dig before we find more trouble!
Digimon Emperor: Trouble has found you!
Davis: Digimon Emperor, what have you done? Where are my friends?
Digimon Emperor: Your friends are with me. Come and see, if you dare!
Davis: Hurry, Veemon! The ground could open up and swallow us any second!
Veemon: I wanted to start getting more excersize, but running for my life wasn't what I had in mind!
Davis: I'm more worried about our friends right now. We're coming!
Davis: The digimon emperor's voice came from this direction!
Veemon: I hope so!
Davis: There he is! You're going to get it!
Digimon Emperor: I'm so scared.
Davis: Let my friends go! What have you done with them?
Digimon Emperor: Your friends are at my mercy. And so, it would appear, are you.
[the rest of the kids and digimon are tied up and hanging from a bridge]
Davis: Oh no, guys!
Kari: Davis, save yourself!
TK: You can still escape!
Cody: Don't take your eyes off of the emperor!
Yolei: *What* are you waiting for? Save me!
Davis: Don't worry, I'll think of something!
Digimon Emperor: Think fast, your time's running out. Oh no, times up.
Davis: Oh, no!
Digimon Emperor: Awaken, Deltamon!
Veemon: Maybe it's a ducky or a bunny!
Davis: Just what is that thing, Veemon?
Veemon: Deltamon is a dragon type digimon with a metal head for one hand, and a skull for the other! His attacks are tri-flex force and dragon's bite!
Digimon Emperor: What luck you all dropped by. You see, it's Deltamon's lunchtime, and I think eating your friends will make a well-balanced meal, don't you?
Davis: Oh, no you won't! I'll never let you get away with this!
Digimon Emperor: It appears you have no choice. If you want mercy, you must beg for it.
Davis and Veemon: Huh?
Digimon: You heard me, you pathetic loser! Now on your knees and beg!
Veemon: Don't Davis!
Digimon Emperor: Please Master, spare my friends.
Davis: Please Master, spare my friends.
Digimon Emperor: Please Master, spare my worthless friends.
Davis: Please Master, spare my worthless friends.
Digimon Emperor: That's excellent! Now, Veemon! Restrain him...I command you!
Davis: Do what he says.
Davis: Do it for the others. If it'll save our friends, then obey the emperor.
Digimon Emperor: *laugh* Seeing you squirm is so delicious. You are so entertaining, maybe I should take pity on you.
Digimon Emperor: As you can see, Deltamon has only three mouths. But there are four children. Therefore, you may have one.Sadly, I cannot spare them all. Choose who will be spared.
Davis: So *I* have to choose? I can't do it! How do I pick one over the other?
Digimon Emperor: This desicion must be done delicately. Delicately. You have until the sand's run out to choose. And it isn't long, pretty boy. It isn't long.
Kari: Don't worry about me, Davis! Save one of the others!
TK: Get out of here, Davis! Go ahead, save yourself!
Yolei: Oh, sure...make *ME* look bad! Fine then, *DON'T* save me!
Cody: Whatever you decide to do, Davis, we trust you! So think of something!
Davis: I...I...uh, I just can't do it! How am I supposed to choose only one of my friends?
Digimon Emperor: Like sands in the hourglass, so are your friends' lives.
Davis: I just...I...I can't do it!
Digimon Emperor: Will you throw *ALL* their lives away? Is that what you call friendship?
Davis [thinking]: They're all my friends! Kari! TK! Cody! Yolei! [aloud] Ahh!
Digimon Emperor [thinking]: You brought this on yourself. You made me look like a fool.
Digimon Emperor: And now, digidestined, time's up. Say goodbye.
Davis: Wait! Take me instead of the others!
Digimon Emperor: You think YOU can satisfy his hunger? Alright. Deltamon!
TK: Look out, Davis!
Veemon: Davis, if you've been holding out and planning a surprise attack, now would be a good time to yell 'surprise'!
Veemon: It isn't funny!
Digimon: Surprise? It isn't even my birthday!
Davis: It's Digmon!
Pegasusmon and Nefertimon: Incoming!
Veemon: Pegasusmon! Halsemon! Nefertimon!
[the other kids come running up behind DAVIS]
TK: It's just an illusion! We're alright!
Davis: Than who's that?
[the kids hanging change form and become BAKEMON]
Yolei: Eww, gross!
Davis: What are those things?
Veemon: Despite their obvious dental hygiene problems, Bakemon are able to accurately impersonate any other creature. Their attack is called the 'Dark Claw'
Veemon: He made the Bakemon look like our friends!
Digimon Emperor: I can't believe it! You dumb Bakemon, I had that kid right where I wanted him.
Wormmon: It's not my fault!
Davis: I can't believe you pulled that trick on me! Go get him, Veemon!
Veemon: It'll be my pleasure.
Davis: Digiarmour Energize!
Veemon: Veemon, armour digivolve to...Flamedramon: The Fire of Courage!
Digimon Emperor: Bakemon, you've got tooth rules...Attack! Not me, them!
Pegasusmon: Here they come.
Halsemon: They're everywhere.
Nefertimon: Like mosquitos.
Digimon Emperor: Attack them!!
Davis: I never saw mosquitos do that.
TK: The emperor is controlling them! The dark rings the Bakemon are wearing are the key! He's ordering them around like a genenral leading an army!
Davis: Not for long! I'm gonna get that guy!
Flamedramon and Digmon: ugh!
Digimon Emperor: Bakemon, finish them! I have them now.
[DAVIS jumps and pushes the DIGIMON EMPEROR off the hill]
Wormmon: I'll stay here and guard the hill!
Davis: You try to take over the digital world and destroy me? Well, I'm taking you with me! You call yourself the digimon emperor. What's with that?
Digimon Emperor: I am a genius! I cannot lose to a child like you!
Davis: Like me? You are like me! You're a kid, just like us!
Digimon Emperor: I think not! Deltamon! Tri-flex force! Say goodbye!
Flamedramon: Hello. Why leave so soon? The party's just starting. Fire Rocket!
Davis: Flamedramon, aim for the dark ring!
TK: It's working! The emperor's power over the Bakemon is weakening!
Pegasusmon: It's now or never. This is our chance to attack! Star Shower!
Digmon: Target the Control Spire!
Halsemon: Tempest Wing!
Nefertimon: Rosetta Stone!
Digmon: Rock Cracking!
[the knock down the CONTROL SPIRE]
Digmon: There she blows!
All: They did it!
Davis: They sure did! Yes!
Digimon Emperor: No...no! What went wrong? My master plan was invincible! Ah, I forgot to factor in that you're one of those all-or-nothing types. I can't believe the same person made me look like a fool twice in the same day.
Davis: What do you mean, twice? Hey, how'd you get that cut on your leg? Wait, are you...could you be...?
Digimon Emperor: I can be and I am. Ken Ichijouji!
Davis: Ugh, I'm dreaming! Ken is the digimon emperor?
Digimon Emperor: The one and only. Well, Davis, farewell for now, my worthy adversary. Until we meet again, in battle!
Davis: I really looked up to you Ken. I dreamed of being just like you. And now that I know you're my sworn enemy, all I can say is...and I mean this: YOU CAN KEEP YOUR CRUMMY AUTOGRAPH!
Narrator: Now that Ken's secret is revealed, will the digidestined be able to stop him? Find out next time, on Digimon: Digital Monsters!
