- [kids laughing] - Wow! Busy day on the lot!

Ooh! I wonder if today's the day Chuck Lorre decides

who gets to be buried in his pyramid with him.

- [tire screech] - Ooh, look! It's the Tween Twophy Awards!

[crowd screaming] [music blasting]

Ooh. Look at how many of your fans showed up, Dot!

[gasps] I guess you're gonna win an award!

But I didn't prepare a speech!

Just this long list of people I've always wanted to thank,

intertwined with humorous yet trenchant commentary on the state of the world.

- [roller skates clattering] - Whoa, whoa, whoa!

[crowd cheering continues]

Ladies and...

Who am I kidding? Just ladies.

It's my great obligation and distinct chore

to present the most important award of the day:

The Lifetime Achievement Award.

- [cheering] - Oh my goodness. This must be it!

Aw, thanks for this super sweet award,

but the real special treasure is you guys, my fans!

- [crowd gasps] - Excuse me. I'ma let you finish,

but Dot Warner is the most influential

- girl-fluencer of all time! - Yeah!

I'm the one who deserves this Lifetime Achievement Award!

[grunts] That kid hasn't done anything

- but steal my look. - This look is for everyone!

Just like my new line of sour soda gummies.

We signed up for HBO Max.

Not. Good. Enough.

You're the three cat-monkeys

who prank bombed my awards ceremony yesterday.

No, we aren't.

Yes, you are. I've been editing the video all night.

That kid hasn't done anything but steal my look!

She's right. You stole my beautiful look,

and now you're trying to monetize my beautiful words.

[yawn] I'd love to sort this out,

but I've got a branding session at 11:15

and my costume fitting at 11:17.

Although, I might be able to squeeze you guys in after I'm done filming

Yikes. When do you get to play with all the cool things in your house?

That's just merchandise I'm developing for work. Speaking of,

I gotta go discuss key performance indicators in emerging markets.

Oh, I feel bad for GiGi Soda.

She's a kid, but all she does is work!

Maybe it was wrong of us to take this.

Maybe she really deserves it.

Or maybe she deserves to have three icons of children's television

help her learn how to have some good, old-fashioned fun.

Ah! [struggling]

GiGi, can you make sure you're muted? As I was saying...

[Warners cheering]

[gasps] What are you doing? I have to get back to my meeting!

No, GiGi. You need to take a break from working.

For once, just enjoy being a kid without any responsibilities.

GiGi, where have you been? You missed the meeting

where we decided what age you are!

We landed on 12-teen.

You see what happens when you're not there?!

Oh. I did? I'm sorry.

No, GiGi. Don't give in!

You've regressed so far today!

Remember: One step forward, two steps back.

Now, you listen to me, young lady.

If you step out of line, I've got a six-pack

of GiGi Soda-wannabes waiting to replace you!

[puppy whimpering]

Then, do it because I'm not coming

to any more meetings or posting any more videos

or doing any more sponsored content!

It's time for me to be a normal kid! I quit!

- Way to stand your ground! - So proud of you!

Yes! Nice going, GiGi!

Enough of this unprofitable display of genuine emotions!

GiGi, you are getting on that candy rocket,

and we are blasting you into space

to promote your space content!

Hold on, GiGi.

I have one last thing to teach you about being a kid.

How to respect your elders.


No! This rocket isn't structurally sound!

[roaring] It's made of candy...!

[screaming fades away]

Sorry I broke into your house and stole your award.

I guess there is room in this town for both of us.

You stole my award?!

Yeah, but I realized it was wrong.

And now, I'm giving it back to you.

What is the matter with you?!

You made me eat dirt, look at bugs,

and scrape my knees like a child,

and the whole time, you had my award?!

CINDY: Boom! [grumbles]

Welcome all, welcome!

For the play! Da-da-dee! [grunting, groans]

The play is about a man

who went to a overgr-- grown giant jungle.

But, wait! No! He was a ghost! Ooh! [grunts]

No. You're a man. This is an adventure play.

[squishing] So the man must wear his armor.

Yahoo, I'm going to a jungle. [gasps]

[beeping] [Starbox laughs]

And he found a temple.

He would be walking

and suddenly trip on a trip-wire... [wailing]

and then a saw blade would appear. [struggling]

[groaning] Whoosh. Oopsie!

And he'd trip on another

and a giant ball would fall.

[grunting] And he would run and run.

And maybe he'd find a vine. [choking]


He escaped death.

And then he'd get to the treasure room,

and it was overflowing

with gold coins! [rattling]

[struggling] Evil I say

'cause they contain...

Monsters! I mean, animals that can kill you.

And harsh environment that can kill you.

And you can get lost and starve.




[air rushing]


He's gonna chop down the trees and vines

that are in the way. But the play is not over.

He needs to go up the mountain.


[grunts] If you want to get up the mountain,

you have to ride your stallion.


We're going to the mountain! Hurrah!

The leopard almost got him. [groaning]

But he dodged, and the leopard fell

in a lake full of piranhas.

Chomp chomp chomp chomp chomp...

[Starbox whimpers] [Cindy giggles]

I forgot we were doing the play. [yelling]

There was one other person who was there,

Royal Flush[]

PINKY: Egad, Brain! We came all the way to London, and all I got were these lousy fries.

And I specifically asked for chips.

Well, Pinky, there's a simple explanation for that.

Here in England, fries are called chips,

and chips are called crisps.

Oh, I get it.

He lied.

Come, Brain. We must prepare for tomorrow ni--

Quiet, you masticating moron.

We don't want the young British royal, Prince Barnaby,

and his Australian bride, the Duchess Abigail,

to see us while we take paparazzi photos. [horse neighing]

[shutter snapping] [horse snorts]


This is far too romantic.

I know. Who would have thought?

[sighs] I feel like the whole country hates me.

Never mind the tabloids, darling.

I still love you, and that's all that matters.

That and our many, many castles.

Mm... Like this one!

♪ Rule Britannia playing ♪

Hooray! We're here! [groaning]

[yelps] Mummy, I'm home!

Oh, Brain, Abigail seemed a little sad, don't you think?

By selling those photos of Abigail to the tabloids,

I have accumulated over £5 million!

Egad! We're going to have to put you on a strict liquid diet!

Only clam chowder and milkshakes from now on, my lad.

Once again, Pinky, your refusal to review your "English to English" vocabulary flashcards jeopardizes the entire mission.

£5 million is the exact amount of money I need

to enter Prince Barnaby's secret underground poker game.

Ooh! Tough hand, Brain.

You're not going to be able to spell anything with two Q's.

Silence, Pinky.

I need utmost concentration if I am to trick the prince

into going all in and betting his kingdom.

And when he loses, I will become heir to the crown,

paving the way for me to bring back absolute monarchy

and rule England with an iron fist!

Eh... I mean, uh,

pip-pip, cheerio.

Pinky: But, Brain, I don't want to stay in England. We are in its most fancy palace, and the fries here are by far the worst ones yet!

Brain: Pinky, what have you done? Those were nearly all my chips!

Pinky: Ah-ah, no, Brain. You're thinking of crisps.

Brain: [sighs] Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?

Pinky: I think so, Brain, but I don't think he'll deliver the jukebox because he tore all three of his shoulders.

Brain: No. Here's the turn, and here's the flop!

[yelling, grunts]

[gasps, crying]

Oh, how come I can never do anything right? How come nothing ever goes my way-


[crunch] [grunting]

[straining] Can't... breathe... but... want... to.

[laughs] Sorry, dolls! Didn't see you there.

[woozy]: Oh, it's okay. I didn't see me there neither. Say, you're Princess Abigail!

Princess Abigail: Princess? Bah! I'm so tired of this drafty old palace. Back in Australia, I was just a normal girl breeding polo horses. [sighs] I sure miss being home. Here, I feel like the British press hates me because they see me as an outsider.

Pinky: I so know how you feel, Abigail. I'm also an outsider. Brain told me to go outside, and now, here I am! [cries] An outsider! [sobbing]

Princess Abigail: Now, now. Don't spit the dummy, love. I reckon we could both use a relax tonight, eh? Why don't you come with me? We could explore London together.

...your claim to the throne.

Alright. You're on.

[maniacal laughing] [door opens]

Barnaby! I have something to tell you.

And I have something to tell you, Brain!

BOTH: I want to go home!

- What? - But, sugar-lumps...

Yes! [sobs] I'm not happy here!

I'm tired of being a princess.

What can I do to help?

I could offer you this handkerchief...


[woozy laugh, grunt]

...soaked in chloroform.

I want you to abdicate the throne

and come back to Australia with me.

We can live a normal life,

breeding horses on my parents' organic winery

on stolen Aboriginal land.

If that's what you want, then of course!

You're the only thing I care about!

[nervous laugh] Well this all sounds wonderfully romantic,

but I think we should finish the game first

and see who wins the claim to the throne.

There's no need because as of this moment,

I am no longer the prince.

I'm giving up the crown

for my precious Abby-Wabby.

Oh, Barney-warney! [giggling]

You can't do this!

I didn't take all of those embarrassing honeymoon photos of you

just to have my plan fall apart at the 23rd hour, GMT!


You're the paparazzi who took those pictures!


Oh, dear. Time to rouse from your slumber, Pinky!

[handle rattling]

Come out! We've got this WC surrounded!

Egad! What's a WC?

Oh, Brain, I'm so tired of this strange place.

Can I have that hanky again?

Pinky, I'm sorry for ignoring and incapacitating you, my friend.

Now we can go home together.

Get ready to jump

[flushes toilet]



[grunting, gasping]

You know the irony of all this, Pinky?

I had a royal flush. Come, my friend.

We must hail a cab and endure the driver's long-winded prattle about Brexit

if we are to return to the lab and prepare for tomorrow night.

Why, Brain? What are we going to do tomorrow night?

The same thing we do every night, Pinky.

Try to take over the world!
