RALPH: Uh, previously on "Aminaminacs"...

Hey, sibs! Remember when we had our DNA tested?


Ooh! Who's our great-grandmother?

My great-grandmother Flora

- is the greatest businesswoman alive! - Ah!

Tonight, I will host a little competition

for all my potential heirs,

and the winner will inherit my fabulous estate!

You're my best relatives!

You've won my fortune!

I'm sorry, kids, but your DNA results were switched with...


Look, everyone! He is the spitting image of my favorite brother, Ralphonzo!

We should do a movie about flaming meatballs!

Any more of your foolish ideas, and you'll bankrupt this studio.

Nora! You need to listen to my long-lost great nephew.

After all, as chairman, he is your new boss.

So, Ralph runs Warner Bros. now?

VILLAINS: Meatball Man!

Pasta-la-pizza, gravy.



[panting, yells]

[echoing] Meatball power!

[groans, grunts]

Question you got to ask yourself is,

do I feel hungry?

[struggling] Well,

do I, punk?

[Ralph laughing]

Oh, that's really, really...


Da best bit was da meatballs!

I'll make a note of it.

Duh, uh, make a note of ordering me this here sub

for the premiere.

I haven't had meat since, uh,

well, since I got this job.

So, I've been a really good boy.

One million dollars?!

Oh. One million calories.

The price is...

one million dollars?!

Great Grandma Flora, tell him he can't do this!


But Nora!

How can I say no to those big puppy dog jowls?

Oh, give me those jowls. [squishing]

Aw, mine, mine, mine, mine.

Enough of this nauseating nepotistic nonsense!

You will fall in line and respect

my beloved brother Ralphonzo!

I-I mean, my great-grandnephew Ralph.

Well, if you want to run this place into the ground,

then you can do it without me!

I quit!

Anyone got any bright ideas how to break out of here?

Ideally, in a way that parodies classic movies

Pinky, this isn't another one of your videos

where you expose my world domination plans to your followers, is it?

[laughs] Don't be silly, Brain!

We can't just do the same thing every time.

I mean, after two whole seasons,

the fans deserve something fresh and new. Sorta like...

narf! Poit! Zort! Egad! [laughs]

Oh! Don't forget to smash that subscribe button.

Now then, the first way to "how to friendship"

is by making breakfast for your bestest... friend...

Ooh. [scoffs] Oh, dear.

Try saying that five times fast.

That! That! That! That! I can't do it.

[sighs] That is hard.


Your French toast is ready!

This is just a piece of burnt toast

with a bite taken out of it.

Ah, yes. Well, sorry.

I got a little hungry on my way back from France, didn't I?

I don't have time to dilly-dally, Pinky.

I'm putting the final touches on the hydraulic system

of my bipedal exoskeleton.

It combines the speed and agility of the border collie,

the impressively low ground clearance of the dachshund,

and the strict obedience of the Labrador retriever.

[whirring] [robotic barking, panting]

I'll admit, I may have modeled the latter on the wrong breed.

This suit will allow me to breach

the heretofore impenetrable security of Brass Mountain...

[Pinky giggling] ...the storage facility in Pennsylvania,

where many of humanity's most precious documents are kept.

PINKY: [giggling] Oh! [clicking, beep]

I will infiltrate the facility and transfer

Charles Dickens' will to my name... [Pinky making robot noises]

...thus inheriting his enormous estate. [Pinky laughing]

With the royalties, I shall be able to fund my latest plan

for world domination, which is--

[Pinky laughing hysterically]

PINKY: Egad, look at your head! [laughs]

Pinky, are you even listening to me? [jowls jiggling]

PINKY: Yes, Chipmunk-Balloon-Brain!

Whatever you squeak-- Oh, I mean say! [laughs]

What are you doing? Give me that phone.

Uh... Oh! Use the promo code

"Chipmunk Brain 11-teen" for 10% off Brain plushies when--

[bars and tone]

The next way to "how to friendship"

is what I like to call "random acts of friendship."

Pinky, have you seen my Brass Mountain blueprints?


I need to upload them into my navigation system.

No... But!

I have a special friendship present for you.

Wait a minute. Pinky,

what material did you use to make this?

That pretty blue paper from your desk.

It really brings out your eyes, don't you think?

[goofy giggle]


these are the blueprints to Brass Mountain!

It took me months to procure on the black market!


Your photograph is obscuring my blueprints,

and it's covered in macaroni and glue!

Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

- Bad! - Okay, Brain, I can see you're upset.

We can talk about it on the way to the Bass Accountant.

It's the Brass Mountain, and you're not coming!

What? But I always come with you on your

"try to take over the world" trips.

We're bestest friends. BRAIN: Not today.

Your forceful friendshipping has given me a monumental migraine.

PINKY: Aw...

- [Pinky yelps] - I'm going alone!

Consider yourself unfriended, Pinky!

PINKY: You mean in real life or on Chatstogram?

Both. [Pinky gasps]

[whirring, thud]

[clicking, whirring]

Ah. Well, you know, um,

sometimes, friends fight.

Uh... But!

I've always found the best way to apologize

is with a song from the heart!

So, let's head to Brain's music studio

and get started, shall we?

I'm back! Were you scared?

I was! And I liked it! [laughing]

[beep] [whirring, explosion]

Now, we're here inside Brain's music studio

to lay down a spicy new apology track,

so I can win back his friendship!

What? Wait. [scoffs]

Can't tell anything from this... [muttering]

saved my life.

Well, that's the power of music, Brain.

But, you also ruined my plan.

Oh, I'm sorry.

Ooh! I can make you another apology song if y--

No! No, no. Heh. One is plenty, Pinky.

Hm. Well, suit yourself.

Oh. Thank you, Pinky. That's... That's much better.

No problem, friend. [cracking]
