Tai: So there we were, falling like crazy! That's when
Gomamon tells all the fish in the river to swim
close together, and make a boat for us. Later, we find
a beach with a whole bunch of these phone
booths. We tried calling home, but none of them seemed
to work. Next, we got totally thrashed on by
Shellmon! He sprayed seawater like a firehose! My bud,
Agumon, got stepped on. That made him mad!
He digivolved into Greymon and gave Shellmon a ride he
won't forget, then he turned back into Agumon.
Dudes, this place is wild!

Digimon Title Theme

[The group is standing on a cliff, overlooking the sea.
Tai is standing at the edge, thinking.]

Tai: We've almost searched the whole island, and we
still haven't found any people. Just some
monsters with attitude. But they couldn't beat our
digimon friends who could turn into these awesome
fighters! Like when Agumon digivolved into Greymon and
kicked Shellmon to the curb. He was so

Tai: Yo, Agumon!

Agumon: What's up, Tai?

Tai: I like it when you're Greymon. No offense, but
why don't you just stay that way?

Agumon: I can't.

Tai: Hm.

Agumon: But even superheros need a rest.

Tai: Huh. Eee-yaa!

[Tai loses his footing and teeters on the edge. Agumon
reaches out and snags his shirt with a claw,
pulling him back. The others laugh, then they all turn
with a gasp as something roars behind them.
They turn to see a large grey monster crash through a
wall of rock.]

Izzy: Who's that digimon?

Tentomon: (DA) It's a Monochromon. But don't worry
about him - he's a laid back digimon. Although, it is
wise to be a bit cautious with a Monochromon. They do
tend to get a bit miffed when they're hungry.
Tai: Then he must be starving, cause he looks really

Mimi: And I think he wants to eat us!

[Another loud roar comes from behind them, and the
group turns to see another Monochromon coming
toward them.]

Matt: There're two of them! We're caught between a
rock and two sets of teeth!

[The kids run behind a nearby boulder, and the two
Monochromon clash, locking horns and smashing

Tai: Something must have set those Monochromon off.

Tentomon: They're fighting over territory.

Palmon: They can just have it then!

[Palmon turns and runs, followed by Mimi and the

Mimi: Hey! Don't leave without me!

Tai: They definitely don't need us hangning around!

[The Monochromon continue fighting brutally with each
other as the group runs for safety. T.K. trips
and cries out as he falls to the ground, but is helped
up by Matt.]

Matt: T.K., come on!

Tai: Better hurry up you guys!

T.K.: Kay, we're coming!

[Locked in battle, the Monochromon tumble off the edge
of the cliff and splash into the sea.]

[Later on, the kids and their digimon are walking
through a forest with road signs posted at odd angles
throughout the underbrush.]

Mimi: I don't walk this much unless I'm at a mall. And
as you can see, we're nowhere near one!

Tai: Mimi, stop whining.

Mimi: No, my feet hurt!

Agumon: Maybe if you'd take off your boots and socks,
you'd feel better, Mimi. It's much more
practical, I think.

Mimi: I'm not walking and dirtying my bare feet!

Palmon: I love the feel of dirt under my feet!
Especially between my toes.

Mimi: Gross!

Izzy: It appears that we may be losing our light

Sora: What a weird sunset.

Izzy: This whole island is weird. And who knows what
will come out at night.

Tentomon: Wait, I detect water! Stay here while I
check it out.

[Tentomon flies up into a tree to get a better view.]

Tentomon: Yes, as usual, I'm right. It's a lake with
fresh, clean water, and a variety of tasty fish. It's
a perfect campsite!

Mimi: Maybe I can finally soak my poor, achy feet.

Gomamon: Yay, we get to swim!

[Gomamon runs toward the shore, but crashes to the
ground as Joe grabs his tail with both hands.]

Joe: Gomamon! You'd better wait and make sure it's
safe first!

Matt: That's why I think we should keep walking, and
stop all the complaining.

Tai: Everybody's hungry. We have to find some food!

Joe: That is a good plan. I like that plan a lot.

[The group gathers into a circle by the shore.]

Biyomon: It should be safe to rest here tonight.

Sora: Yeah, I love camping outside.

Mimi: If I won't walk in dirt, what makes you think
I'll sleep in it?

Tai: Mimi, do you see a hotel here?

[Mimi gasps and the others turn to see a trolley car
sitting on the beach, headlights flaring.]

Tai: What's that?

T.K.: It looks like a trolley car.

Izzy: That's odd. The lights just came on.

Sora: Well, maybe there are some real people in there.

Tai: Let's check it out!

[The group runs toward the vehicle.]

Mimi: Maybe it can take us back home.... In
air-conditioned comfort!

Tai: Mimi, wait up!

[They reach the trolley and go inside, but there is
nobody there.]

Tai: Bummer, it's empty!

Sora: Totally empty.

Izzy: No trolley car's this clean.

Mimi: Oh goodie, these cushions are comfy!

Tai: Something's wrong. Remember those weird phone
booths we saw on the beach? Something just
as freaky could happen here.

Joe: Yeah, like this suddenly moving all by itself.

Tai: Possibly, but then again, maybe that's how we're
going to get home.

Sora: So we have nothing to lose by staying here.

Tentomon: Ohhh, can we eat now?

Tai: That's right, I forgot.

[Later, Gomamon pops above the surface of the lake and
swims toward Izzy and T.K., sitting on the
shore. Izzy is holding a makeshift fishing pole.]

Izzy: Gomamon, stop playing in the water! I can't
catch any fish if you keep on warning them away!

Tentomon: Yum yum. You can't get too many berries down
the hatch.

[Sitting on top of Agumon's head, Patamon takes a deep
breath and fires a Boom Bubble at a bunch
of bananas, knocking them off the tree and onto
Gabumon's head, where they are speared by his horn.
Gabumon groans and holds his head. Biyomon laughs.]

Biyomon: Oh boy, you'd better watch that killer breath
of yours, Patamon.

[Biyomon flies off to pull a fruit from a tree.]

[Meanwhile, Mimi is looking at mushrooms with Palmon.]

Palmon: Those are bad mushrooms, you shouldn't pick
them! They'll make you sick!

Mimi: I'd be a big mess without you, Palmon, you're
the best!

Palmon: Ahh, stop!

[Sora, Tai and Matt are standing around a small circle
of rocks and kindling, but with no fire.]

Matt: We're all set to cook dinner. Now all we need is
the grub!

Sora: Great, but how are we supposed to light the

Agumon: Like this!

[Agumon blows a ball of flame which brings the campfire
to life.]

Tai: Wow, Agumon, you're the man!

Agumon: Awww...

[Izzy and T.K. run by, carrying fish on branches.]

T.K.: Hey, lookit!

Izzy: We caught a bunch of fish!

Tai: Awesome, Izzy, let's eat 'em!

Matt: Thanks, squirt.

[Matt takes a fish on a stick from his little brother
and walks to the fire, where Tai is gingerly holding a
fish by its tail above the flames.]

Tai: This is where I wish we had a microwave.

Matt: Me too, because you're about to lose your
fingers. Why don't you use a stick?

Tai: How did you come up with that, Matt?

Matt: Because I'm the man!

[Later, the group is enjoying their dinner of fish and

Tentomon: This is surprisingly good!

Izzy: Delicious!

T.K.: Matt, Mom only lets me eat fish sticks.

Matt: I won't tell.

T.K.: I never eat with my fingers.

Matt: T.K., it's alright!

Tai: Yeah, you're hanging with the big boys now.

T.K: Kay.

[As T.K. continues eating, Tai walks over to where Sora
is collecting water by the shore.]

Tai: Hey Sora.

Sora: What?

Tai: Matt doesn't treat T.K. like a brother, only like
he's a bother. Is it just me, or have you noticed that

Sora: Yeah.

Tai: I wonder.

Sora: Matt's still learning to be a big brother.

Tai: Maybe.

[Joe walks up to the two with a thoughtful hum.]

Sora: Hey Joe, what 'cha looking at?

Joe: I'm trying to figure out which direction we've
been going, but the stars seem to be all mixed up. I
haven't been able to find the north star anywhere.

Sora: I know. I don't recognize any of these

Tai: You're forgetting your astronomy. If you can't
see the north star, then it must be on the other side
of the world.

Sora: Do you think we could be in the southern

Joe: Yes, I guess it's possible. That is, if we're
still on Earth.

Tai: What is that supposed to mean?

[Sitting nearby, Patamon yawns and curls up beside T.K.]

T.K.: Look, Patamon's tired.

[Palmon and Gomamon are sleeping a few steps away as
well. Tai yawns.]

Tai: I'm getting really tired myself.

Izzy: Wait a second, I think we should take turns
standing guard.

Joe: Alright. Who wants to go first?

Tai: How about if each of us stands guard for about an

Matt: Not T.K.

T.K.: Aww, come on, me too, Matt.

Matt: No, you're too young and you need your rest!

Mimi: I'm getting cold. I need a warm blanket to help
me sleep.

Tai: Hey Gabumon! Watch it, Mimi may sneak up on you
and steal your fur! So if you feel a little tug,
it might be her about to cut your tail off!

Gabumon: Stop, Tai! That's not funny!

[Tai pulls on Gabumon's fur coat, and Gabumon runs
away. Matt pushes Tai backward.]

Matt: Quit it!

Tai: Ooh! What are you bugging about?

Matt: Gabumon told you to stop! So knock it off!

Tai: Hey, you can't tell me what to do!

[Tai and Matt grab each other's shirts, looking as if
they're about to fight.]

T.K.: You guys, stop fighting!

[The two boys huff and turn their backs to each other,
arms crossed.]

Joe: You'd both make great guards. Who goes first?

Tai: I will!

Matt: I'm next!

Joe: How about if Izzy takes over after that, and then
I finish up the night? I propose that the rest of us
trek back to the bus and get some shut-eye.

[Back at the bus, the kids are sitting up on the
trolley's seats, while their digimon are settled on
the floor.]

Mimi: I can't sleep with all of you here!

Sora: Quit complaining. So it's not perfect. Just be
glad we have a place to sleep.

Izzy: That's right, Mimi.

Joe: Goodnight.

T.K.: Don't let the Monochromon bite.

Sora: Thanks for reminding me, T.K.

Mimi: My feet still hurt.

Izzy: Why is there a trolley here? Maybe it's the
aliens. Maybe they knew we needed it.

Joe: I hope I don't get any monster cooties.

Matt: Gabumon?

Gabumon: Yeah?

Matt: Go over and lay down with my brother.

Gabumon: Why, Matt?

Matt: Because your fur's making me sweat. Now, go!

Gabumon: Because you want me to keep T.K. warm.

Matt: Hey, I didn't say that!

Gabumon: You just don't want to admit it.

Matt: Whatever.

[Gabumon curls up beside T.K., putting a furry arm
across him. T.K. opens his eyes and sees Gabumon.]

T.K.: Thanks, Matt.

[Matt, startled, turns away, blushing. Meanwhile, Tai
and Agumon are sitting by the fire outside,
keeping watch. Tai yawns.]

Agumon: Tai, you don't want to fall asleep on your
first night watch!

Tai: My eyes won't stay open. I'm going to the lake
and splash some water on my face.

[As Tai is splashing his face, he hears something else
on the shore. He turns and sees Matt looking
out over the water.]

Tai: Huh? Who's there? Oh, Matt. Don't you think I can
handle this?

Matt: I... couldn't sleep.

Tail: Oh? And why not?

Matt: Look, I'm sorry about earlier. I didn't mean to
get so mad. It's just being here, and having to
watch T.K....

Tai: Do you guys even live in the same house?

Matt: Not anymore. We're half brothers and we don't
get to see each other much.

Tai: Well, that explains a lot.

[Matt sighs in frustration and takes off running down
the shore. Tai walks back to Agumon.]

Tai: Matt's a little strange.

[Tai and Agumon hear a strange sound and turn to see
Matt sitting on the ground a little way off playing
the blues on a harmonica. Gabumon comes up to Matt.]

Gabumon: What a wonderful sound!

Tai: Maybe to a Saint Bernard with a horn on its

[The tune carries across the beach to Tai and Agumon,
and to the trolley car where T.K. hears it and
smiles in his sleep. As Tai is poking the fire with a
stick, a burning piece of wood pops and flies up to
land a few feet away.]

Tai: Watch out for the fire sparks!

[A flaming piece of stick lands on a flat red area of
the beach, which then moves and causes the
ground to shake, knocking Tai and Agumon onto the

Tai: Hey!

[A wave begins to form in the sea, and from the wave
emerges the huge yellow head of a green sea

[The sea monster towers over the beach, growling at
Tai, Agumon, Matt and Gabumon. The group
inside the trolley car hears it and cowers in fear.]

Sora: What's that horrible sound?

Mimi: It's an earthquake!

Joe: The trolley's starting to move! And I don't think
it's taking us home!

Izzy: It's taking us toward that sea dragon!

Tentomon: Oh no! Seadramon!

[The group scrambles out of the trolley car.]

Mimi: We're gonna get eaten for sure!

[Seadramon races through the water, taking the land
with it. Matt and Gabumon watch as Tai, Agumon,
the others and the trolley are pulled along behind

Matt: The land's moving!

Agumon: Hold tight, we're going for a ride!

Tai: It's like we're on a monster longboard!

Izzy: He's pulling us along by his tail. I don't even
think he realizes we're here.

Tentomon: Perhaps not. He's a bit dense. As long as he
doesn't see us, we should be safe.

Agumon: Don't be too sure.

Tentomon: You guys jinxed us! Now he knows we're here!

Tai & Agumon: What? I didn't do anything!

[Seadramon pulls his tail - the red patch of ground
that the burning stick landed on - away from the

Izzy: I guess he does know we're here!

Tai: Ah! That big red thing was his tail!

Tentomon: It wasn't my fault!

[Seadramon whips his tail at the moving island,
knocking Tai, Agumon, Izzy and Tentomon off their
feet again.]

Tai: He's coming back and he's not happy!
The giant sea digimon swims benath the island and
knocks it with his head, making it shoot toward
the shore.

Joe: We're gonna crash into the shore!

Mimi: This is really gonna mess up my hair!

Matt: T.K.!

[Matt dives into the water, swimming for the runaway
island. Gabumon follows.]

Gabumon: Matt, I'm just letting you know, my fur's
gonna get wet, and I'm going to stink!

[Suddenly, the land stops in the middle of the water.]

Tai: Great, he left us right in the middle of the

Izzy: I don't suppose we could trick him into taking
us back....

Tai: Get ready, he's attacking!

Agumon: Come on you guys, let's send him back to the

Gabumon: No problem!

Biyomon: Spiral twister!

[Patamon lets out a Boom Bubble, but neither attck has
much effect.]

Palmon: Poison Ivy!

[Palmon's ivy vines don't reach all the way to the sea
monster's towering head. Tentomon flies up to get
a better spot for attack.]

Tentomon: Super shocker!

Agumon: Pepper breath!

[Seadramon roars in anger, but doesn't seem affected by
any of the digimon's attacks.]

Tai: Agumon, digivolve!

Agumon: I've been trying, but I can't seem to do it
this time, Tai.

Tai: You have to!

Agumon: Maybe my body hasn't recovered from the last

Tai: But if you can't help us, how are we gonna stop

Matt: T.K.! Over here!

T.K.: Matt!

[Gomamon follows T.K. to the edge of the shore, where
they see Matt swimming toward them, followed
by Gabumon.]

T.K.: Matt, be careful! Or the monster will get y--

[A sudden shake of the island sends T.K. into the
water, and Gomamon dives in after him.]

Matt: T.K.!

[T.K. pops out of the water in front of his brother,
perched safely on Gomamon's head.]

Joe: Gomamon, go!

Tai: Hurry up, Matt!

Tentomon: Get out fast, it's Seadramon! He's back!

Matt: Gomamon, you can do it!

Gomamon: Right!

[Gomamon swims swiftly back to the shore, while Matt
swims in the other direction, away from the
island, waving his arms to Seadramon.]

Matt: Hey! Over here, you overgrown water lizard!

[Seadramon turns to Matt with a growl.]

Gabumon: Blue blaster!

[Seadramon is hit, but as before, seems to barely feel
the attack. With a flick of his tail, he flips
Gabumon out of the water and sends him flying through
the air.]

Gabumon: I hate this!

[Matt is suddenly pulled under the water by Seadramon.
Gabumon pulls himself weakly onto the island
where the others are watching.]

T.K: It's all my fault. Matt was only trying to save
me, I'll never forgive myself!

Tai: Oh no!

[The others watch as Matt is lifted into the air,
Seadramon's tail wrapped around his body in a crushing grip.]

Tentomon: This is not good! Seadramon may be a bubble
brain, but once he finds his prey, he won't
let go!

T.K.: Matt, hang on! Patamon, please help him! Hit him
with a Bubble Boom!

Patamon: Seadramon's way too big, I just don't have
enough power now. Gabumon, you're stronger,
how about you?

Gabumon: You're right. Matt is in trouble, and I must

Matt: Gabumon!

T.K.: Don't give up! I'll find a way to save you if
it's the last thing I do!

Gabumon: Matt! Hold on! I don't understand any of
this, but I have to save Matt. What's a little stinky
fur compared to a friend like him? Matt!

Matt: Gabumon!

Gabumon: Gabumon digivolve to... Garurumon!

[Garurumon, the huge white wolf, leaps with a snarl at
Seadramon, and with one slash, frees Matt from
Seadramon's grip. Matt falls into the water and swims
for the island, as Garurumon fights Seadramon
with tooth and claw. He latches onto Seadramon with
his powerful jaws, but Seadramon flicks him off
with a whip of his tail, and then pushes him beneath
the water.]

T.K.: Are you alright, Matt?

Matt: Yeah, but where's Gabumon?

[Garurumon rises from the water, followed by Seadramon.
Garurumon whips his tail at the sea monster
and hits him in the face, causing the larger digimon
to rear back in pain.]

Tentomon: (DA) Garurmon's fur is legendary. It's
strong as steel. He's like a growling torpedo.
Izzy: That's astonishing. Then he must be invincible.
Tentomon: Well, that's what I've heard, anyway. We'll
soon find out.]

Tai: I hope you're not exaggerating, Tentomon, with
another one of your wild fish tales again.

Agumon: He could be.

Tentomon: But I heard about it!

[Seadramon fires a blast of freezing air at Garurumon.
The water in the lake freezes, and Garurumon
is covered in ice.]

Tentomon: Seadramon's using his lethal Ice Blast!

Garurumon: Howling Blaster!

[Garurumon's blue attack hits Seadramon in the head,
and he falls backward into the lake, defeated.
The kids on the shore cheer, and Garurumon changes
back in to Gabumon.
Gabumon climbs back on to the island.]

Matt: Gabumon!

Gabumon: Flying's sure a good way to keep my fur dry.

Matt: You digivolved into Garurumon just in time!

T.K.: Aw, Gabumon, thanks for saving my brother!

Gabumon: Any time, little friend.

T.K.: Matt, you were so awesome against that monster!

Matt: You think so?

Gabumon: You know, you were the man!

Matt: And you're the wolf-man!

[The kids and digimon laugh happily.]

Joe: Okay, very funny, but how are we supposed to get

Gomamon: Just watch!

[Gomamon dives into the water, and when he surfaces, a
school of fish are surrounding him.]

Gomamon: Fish power!

[The obliging fish push the island back to the main

Mimi: Gabumon? May I use you for a pillow? I promise I
won't take your fur.

Izzy: Actually, there seems to be a pattern here. This
time, only Gabumon could digivolve.

Sora: Yeah, Izzy's right. Agumon was the only one who
could do it before.

[Tai hums thoughtfully, remembering the incident in
which Agumon digivolved into Greymon.
Shellmon had Tai wrapped in a painful grip.] (FB)

Agumon: Hang on!

Tai: Can't breathe!

Agumon: Greymon!

Tai: Get me outta here!

[Tai's digivice glowed, and Agumon digivolved into
Greymon and defeated Shellmon.] (EFB)

Tai: You're right. It's all beginning to make sense.
Agumon digvolved when I was in danger.

Izzy: That has to be the answer. Our digimon
digivolves when we're in trouble.

Sora: Wow, that must be it!

[Mimi, snoring lightly, falls back against Sora.]

Sora: Hey! Watch it!

Mimi: Is it time to go to the mall?

Sora: We've been here one day, and I think she's put
some muscle on her.

Agumon: Yeah, maybe if she puts in some effort, she'll
become a hard-bodied machine like I am.

Biyomon: I hope she grows pink wings just like my

Mimi: You must be kidding....

[Tai watches as Mimi, Joe, Izzy, and Sora fall asleep,
along with their digimon. He yawns, then turns as
he hears Matt's harmonica again. He walks over,
seeing T.K., Patamon and Gabumon leaning
against Matt, all nodding off.]

T.K.: Ahh, big bro, you're the best.

[Tai smiles as T.K. falls asleep, leaning on his
brother, the sound of Matt's harmonica filling the air
as another day is put to rest.]
