Matt: I guess it's my turn to fill you guys in. First
we have a close call with these twin metal d
inosaur-looking creatures, then when we were about to
crash for the night, wouldn't you know it?
We're camped out right on top of a big, wicked serpent
thing that goes by the name of Seadramon.
That's when things got intense. I got snatched up and
Gabumon digivolved into a huge blue wolf called
Garurumon. Lucky for me, Seadramon was no match.
Whenever we're in danger, our digimons get
bigger and help us. Now that's cool.

Digimon Title Theme

[The group is again walking through the forest with
road signs posted between the trees, when
something large passes over their heads, making a loud

Sora: Wha-- hey!

Tai: Whoa, did you hear that?

Matt: It seems to be some sort of aircraft.

Sora: It looked like a big flying gear.

Izzy: Admit it, my alien theory is becoming more

Joe: Yeah, they hit us with an anti-gravity ray to
make us all crooked!

Tai: Or maybe that sign's just crooked.

[T.K. slips while climbing up the small hill where the
bigger kids are, but is helped up by Tai.]

Sora: T.K.!

T.K.: Whoa! That was scary!

Tai: Watch it! That could've been a snake, or worse!

T.K.: Oh boy, I'm sorry. Hey Biyomon, are there really
snakes here?

Biyomon: No, just giant flying killer bugs and other
unpleasant digimon.

Patamon: Don't you worry, T.K., I'll take care of

[T.K. laughs and hugs Patamon.]

Sora: Okay, now that that's settled, let's get going.

Matt: Nothing's settled, and where would we go? We
don't even know where we are!

Tai: This is silly, I say we keep moving and see if we
can find any signs of intelligent life here.

Biyomon: Hey wait a minute, is he saying that digimon
are not intelligent? Is that what he's saying?

Sora: Not at all. But I think Tai is right. We need to
keep moving in hopes of finding out where we are.
We need to stay calm and stick together. Let's
remember, we're in this together.

Biyomon: Together sounds good!

Sora: We can do it! This'll take teamwork. And I'm
sure we'll figure out exactly where we are and how
to get back. There's no point in splitting up because
then, once somebody did figure it out, we--

Biyomon: Hey, Sora? Open your eyes.

[Sora opens her eyes to see that the rest of the group
has moved on without them. The two run to
catch up.]

Sora: Well thanks a lot for waiting!

Matt: Moving right along folks, keep it moving. Our
next stop on the tour will be the forest of irrelevant
road signs. No pictures, please!

Sora: We're lost, and these guys are making jokes.

Joe: Hey wait up, my shoelace is broken!

Mimi: You need new shoes. Oooh, new shoes!

[The group emerges from the forest into a clearing, on
which stand several tall telephone poles.]

Matt: Look! Telephone poles. I say we follow them and
see where they lead!

Joe: They'll just lead to trouble.

[As they walk through the clearing, a big black gear
flies through the blue sky.]

Izzy: Look, the alien saucer again!

Matt: And it's headed for a close encounter!

[The gear crashes into a grass-covered hilltop in the
distance. Izzy wipes sweat from his forehead and

T.K.: Boy, it's so hot I can feel the heat coming up
through my socks.]

Matt: Well, T.K., maybe you should put your shoes back

Mimi: Oh, this hot desert air is destroying my
complexion. How much further is it?

Joe: Is that all you're worried about, Mimi? We'll be
lucky if we even survive this hike!

Sora: Hey, does anybody besides me see that these
telephone poles have no connecting wires?

Izzy: She's right. I wonder if these actually are
telephone poles. Maybe they're some odd alien

Mimi: Hey, remember those phone booths? And that

Izzy: Yeah, what about 'em?

Mimi: Oh, nothing. I was just wondering if anybody
else remembered.

Joe: That's it! Doomed. The heat has baked our brains
and we're all gonna end up like roasted piglets!

Izzy: Just remain calm, Joe. We've only been walking
for two minutes.

Tentomon: Izzy! Come here, Izzy. I think we'd better
find some shade for Joe. And quick.

Mimi: You won't believe what happened to my favorite

Joe: Hmm? What?

[Mimi holds up a compass and laughs.]

Mimi: The sun melted the numbers right off!

Tai: Mimi, for somebody who hates hiking, you sure
have a lot of compasses. Of course, none of
them actually work.

[Mimi's compass teeters, then spins rapidly around and
around. Izzy lifts a handful of dirt and examines

Izzy: Oh, this dirt contains small traces of metal
which could affect the compass needle.

Mimi: Oh well. I'm always late anyway.

Sora: This is one weird world, and I don't like it one
little bit!

Izzy: I think we should start looking for water, guys.
Otherwise, we could dehydrate in all this heat.

Tai: Yeah. But we're doing okay for now, aren't we?

Mimi: Heeeeelp! Somebody please find us!

[The black gear grinds through the rock it landed in,
while a firey face growls.]

Izzy: I've taken this oil sample, measured the
barometric pressure, and analysed the relative

Sora: And what did you find out?

Izzy: It's really, really hot.

Tai: Hang on, just a little longer. Don't give up now.

Mimi: We're gonna be okay, just keep moving along.

Palmon: My head is baking. If this goes on too much
longer, I'm going to look like a wilted salad!

Mimi: Here, you wear my hat for a while. You need it
more than I do.

[Mimi takes off her big pink hat and places it on
Palmon's head.]

Palmon: Thank you, Mimi.

T.K.: Pee-yew! What's that yucky smell?

Matt: Here's a thought. Now you know why they call
them sweat socks!

Mimi: This beach would be a lot more popular if it
just had a couple more things. Like, an ocean, a
gentle breeze, snack bar, hunky lifeguards....

[Mimi laughs. Biyomon stops walking, and the others
turn to her.]

Biyomon: Hold it, I have to stop. I just don't think
that I can go any faster.

Sora: You just have to think positive. Let's all
pretend that it's raining.

Biyomon: Yeah, that's a great idea! I simply adore the

Matt: Me too, but it's time for a reality check. This
isn't getting any better. It might be a good idea to
turn around and get out of this desert right now!

Joe: Mmm hmmm.

Tentomon: You mean before we all have a power outage?
I'll vote for that.

Tai: Wait, hold on for just a second, everybody. If
I'm seeing what I think I'm seeing...
Tai pulls out his pocket telescope and looks into the

T.K.: What is it, Tai?

Tai: Mmm hmmm, it's not a mirage, it's real water!

Biyomon: Water?

Joe: This is fantastic! Now all we need are some
lemons, sugar and some big fat ice cubes!

Izzy: That looks like a village! Maybe we'll find

Palmon: And shade!

Mimi: Maybe they'll have hats for sale. Hang on!

T.K.: Water and food! I'm hungry enough to eat

Patamon: What's broccoli? Is that a joke?

Tai: Great! Let's get outta this desert!

[The kids and digimon cheer and head for the village.
The firey face proves to belong to a being made
entirely of fire, who is standing, growling happily
until the black gear frees itself from the rock it buried
iteslf in, and flies toward him. It buries itself
beneath his skin, and the creature groans in pain.
The kids and their digimon have discovered a village,
but it's not exactly what they thought they were
going to find. The tiny huts are occupied by tiny, but
friendly, Yokomon.]

Tai: From so far away, everything looks so big.

Mimi: But they're so cute and tiny!

Biyomon: Okay, question. Who here knows where we can
get a drink?

A Yokomon: And just what do giant digimon drink?

Sora: Me? I'm no digimon.

Biyomon: My friend Sora is what's called a human
being. Yes, we know they look funny. In spite of
this, they are all actually very nice.

Some Yokomon: What's a human being?

A Yokomon: If you are not digimon, what are you doing
here in digi-world?

Joe: This is great. There is no way we are all going
to fit into this place.

Tai: Relax, Joe. At least the natives here are

Mimi: Oh, my! I would just love to take one home and
put it on my bed with all my other stuffed

Matt: There she goes again. Do you think Mimi hears
the same things we hear? I'm not sure anymore.

Izzy: Maybe she's an alien spy.

Patamon: T.K. is tired and hungry!

Joe: He's not the only one.

A Yokomon: Biyomon, just when did you digivolve?

Biyomon: When I met Sora. We share a special bond
which is magical.

A Yokomon: You don't talk like us anymore. Is that how
all Biyomon talk?

Biyomon: No, it's how the big ones talk. I suppose I
just picked it up from Sora. She is a wonderful
and kind human being and I've already learned a lot
from her.

A Yokomon: We still don't understand how you
digivolved. What is it about being around human
beings that makes it happen?

Biyomon: Sora needed me. I had to protect her.

Sora: She had to protect me?

Biyomon: When she was in danger a power kept flowing
through me. I didn't know what it was. I can't
describe it, but all of a sudden I realized I'd

Sora: Wait a sec, now I get it. That's why she's
always following me around. Hmm. When Tai needed
him, Agumon digivolved to Greymon to protect him, and
Garurumon did the same for Matt. They
digivolve for us. We're lucky kids.

Biyomon: Sora. We're invited to have dinner with the
Yokos. They said they'd be willing to share their
food with all of us.

Sora: Oh wow.

[All the kids cheer, and Joe raisies his fist in the

Joe: Let's see hands if you want lemonade!

T.K.: I wonder what Yokomon eat.

Tai: I'll take a cheeseburger, fries and a shake.

Izzy: I wonder what they will be serving. Perhaps some
bone with meat, lettuce topped with fish,

T.K: Water, water!

Izzy: Water?

T.K.: Look everybody, a fresh water fountain! Hurray!

A Yokomon: Oh, the water here is piped in from a
spring at Mihirashi Mountain. It's the best water in
the world!

Tentomon: Forget the world. Mount Mihirashi water is
the best in all the galaxy.

T.K.: Where's Mount Mihirashi?

The Yokomon: Up there!

[T.K. turns to look where the Yokomon indicate.]

T.K.: Hey, that's a live volcano!

A Yokomon: Yes, but the heat boils away all the germs.

[On the mountain, the fire creature roars and heats the
mountain water. In the Yokomon village, a
rumbling sound is heard.]

Izzy: If I'm not mistaken, that noise precedes an

[The group screams and jumps back as a column of fire
erupts from the village well.]

T.K: That's cool, but I still didn't get a drink.

Tai: What is happening?

A Yokomon: The water evaporated!

A Yokomon: That's okay because the lake is always full
of water.

Tai: I'll check it out.

Sora: Let's all go.

[The group runs up to the lake, only to find it empty.]

Izzy: The water's all gone!

Mimi: Goodness, where did it go?

T.K: Somebody pulled the plug!

Tai: Alright, let's not panic.

[Back at the Yokomon village, Tai lowers a bucket into
the well. It falls and crashes at the bottom.]

Matt: Dry as a bone.

Tai: I won't give up.

[Tai pulls the rope back up, but finds only a singed
end where the bucket should be. Suddenly, another
column of flame shoots up from the well, and Tai jumps
back, hopping from foot to foot.]

Mimi: Look. Tai's doing a little dance for us! Is that
supposed to stop the fire or bring down the rain?

Matt: Hey! Do you remember that flying gear we saw

Izzy: It crashed right into a hillside.

Sora: Great. Of all the hillsides out there, the gear
crashes into Mihirashi Mountain.

Joe: That's the place where the water comes from!

A Yokomon: That's right. The water comes from a lake
on the top of Mount Mihirashi. So a gear
crashing into the mountain could affect our water

Izzy: Mmmm hmmm.

A Yokomon: We don't dare go up there. The mountain is
guarded by a firey digimon called Meramon.
He's hideously dangerous!

Tai: I want a closer look at that mountain.

[Tai pulls out his pocket telescope.]

Tai: You say this character Meramon is a firey
digimon? What does he look like? Nevermind, there he
is! He's coming! He's coming our way!

A Yokomon: He burns up everything he touches! He never
comes down off the mountain, though.
This is very strange behaviour for him!

Meramon: Oooh, I'm burning.... too hot!

Palmon: (DA) Meramon is a firey digimon. There's no
reason he should be in pain from his own flames.
That's his nature.

[Meramon sobs in pain.]

Tai: This is weird. He's crying!

Meramon: Burning!

Sora: Sounds like he's out of his mind with pain.

Tai: What do we do?

Meramon: Burning, burning, burning!

Sora: Look, he's coming straight toward the village!

Biyomon: Hey, everybody. We'd better decide what we're
going to do. I've never seen him move so
fast. He's already reached the foot of the mountain,
and now he's starting to enter the forest!

Sora: Everybody, freeze! Stay very still.
The group in the village remains motionless as Meramon
rushes through the forest toward them.

Meramon: You're going to need more than sunscreen to
stop me!

Sora: Don't move a muscle!

Meramon: Agh! Burn, burn, burn!

Tai: Ah! Unfreeze! And run!

[The group, along with the entire village of Yokomon,
run from the laughing Meramon as fast as
possible. They herd all of the Yokomon into the hull
of a wrecked ship, lying dead in the desert.]

Tai: Come on, keep it moving!

Sora: All the way to the rear!

Matt: Okay, settle down, there's room for all of you!
Will you please stop squirming!

[As Matt is working to get all of the Yokomon together
on the bow of the ship, Joe comes up with more
of them.]

Joe: Here's the next batch, Matt.

Tai: Easy now, you'll be okay.

Sora: Who's not here?

[Sora thinks, and remembers her friend Biyomon.]

Biyomon: The Yokos.... I'll take care of them!

Sora: This is bad! Run, come on!

[Sora looks up to the top of the cliff, where Biyomon
is herding the Yokomon down the edge to the ship

Biyomon: Everyone keep moving, now. Just follow the
one in front of you.

Sora: Biyomon, save yourself! Come down while there's
still time!

Biyomon: I can't leave here until all my friends are
safe, Sora!

Sora: Alright. I suppose I'll just have to come up
there after you, then!

Tai: Hurry! Sora, you'll never make it!

Joe: Hey, where is Sora going?

Matt: Sora! Come back!

[Sora runs at top speed toward the cliff, where Biyomon
has helped the last of the Yokomon down the
edge and to the safety of the floor of the canyon.]

Biyomon: Ah, good. They're all safe now.

Sora: Watch out!

[A huge, flaming figure appears on the cliff behind

Sora: Biyomon, he's right behind you!

Biyomon: Go away, Meramon, leave us alone! We're not
bothering you!

[In reply, with one swipe of his hand, Meramon sends
Biymon tumbling down the edge of the cliff.]

Sora: Biyo! Biyo, I'm coming, Biyo!

[Sora leaps and catches Biyomon just before she hits
the ground.]

Sora: Are you okay?

Biyomon: Sure. I hope I never do that again. It wasn't
very fun.

[Sora laughs and picks Biyomon up in a hug.]

Biyomon: Thank you for coming to rescue me.

Sora: Don't mention it. That's what a friend is for.

Biyomon: You can say that again. My friend.

[Meramon roars, and forms a fireball in his hand.]

Biyomon: Uh oh. We're still in great danger, Sora.

Sora: What?

Biyomon: You stay here. It's my turn to rescue you

[With a determined face, Biyomon flies up to Meramon.]

Biyomon: You think you're really hot stuff, well
you're in big trouble now. Spiral twister! Ha!

[Meramon is pushed back, but takes several more of
Biyomon's attacks.]

Biyomon: Okay big red, take that! And that! And that!

Meramon: Is that the best you have to offer, weakling?

Tai: We gotta help her out. He's too big to handle!

Izzy: Yeah.

Tai: Yeah!

Meramon: Fire ball! Catch!

[The ball of fire hits Biyomon and she falls from the

Sora: Oh no! She's hit! Biyomon....

Tai: Come on, everyone! We can beat that monster.

Izzy: What we need is teamwork!

Meramon: I'm ready. Give me your best shot!

[Agumon fires a Pepper Breath attack, while Tentomon
sends out a Super Shocker, Gabumon aims a
Blue Blaster, and Patamon blows a Boom Bubble at
Meramon. All the attacks hit, but the firey
digimon only grows in size.]

Joe: We need a fire extinguisher!

Matt: That made him bigger!

Joe: Yeah.

Meramon: Why do I suffer so?

Tai: If we knew why he was crying, it might help to
stop him.

Izzy: Uh, fire's not affecting him, I guess it's not

Matt: Maybe this monster just has growing pains.

Izzy: Growing pains?

Joe: Matt, this is not a time to joke!

Meramon: Better get ready, here I come!

[Meramon jumps down from the cliff, to where Tai, Izzy
and Sora are with Agumon, Tentomon,
Gabumon and Patamon. Biyomon looks up weakly from
where she had fallen.]

Biyomon: Sora? We're all in trouble now. Meramon can
not be allowed to win. My friends need my
help now.

Izzy: Ah!

Biyomon: Biyomon digivolve to.... Birdramon!

[Birdramon, the huge fire bird swoops under Meramon and
catches him before he reaches the group
below. She then throws him back onto the cliff above.
Sora: We'll be safe now. Biyomon digivolved to rescue

Meramon: What's wrong Birdramon? Afraid of me? Let's
fight! Here, have a ball!

[The fireball hits Birdramon in the back.]

Sora: Don't turn your back!

[Meramon laughs. Birdramon comes straight at him, but
is hit head on with fireball after fireball.]

Sora: Birdramon, move away!

[Birdramon backs off, high into the sky above Meramon.
Her wings glitter as she gathers her strength
for an attack. Meramon's smile fades as several
fireballs come at him at once. The force of the hits
shrinks Meramon down to his normal size, and causes
the black gear stuck in his back to fly out and
be destroyed.]

Izzy: It was a gear!

Patamon: What is it?

Izzy: It made him crazy!

Tai: Right!

Matt: I suppose if you had a big black gear stuck
inside of you, you'd act a little crazy, too. The poor guy.

T.K.: Yay! Biyomon did it!

[Overhead, the huge figure of Birdramon shrinks to the
smaller Biyomon as Sora watches.]

Sora: Wow! Every time I'm in danger, Biyomon comes to
my rescue! That's what I call a friend.

Biyomon: Are you alright? Oh, Sora!

Sora: Oh, B! I was so worried about you! You're great.
I can't begin to tell you how proud I am of you.

Biyomon: I wasn't the least bit afraid. All I could
think about was saving you because... Well, you

[As Sora and Biyomon hug, Sora smiles.]

[Sun is setting back at the Yokomon village, where
Meramon is sitting with his neighbours.]

A Yokomon: Meramon, why did you attack our village?

Meramon: I couldn't stop myself.

A Yokomon: That must have been awful for you. If you
couldn't control yourself, who was controlling

Meramon: The last thing I remember is being hit by
that gear.

A Yokomon: Well, we're just happy to see that you're
back to normal. I hope nothing like this ever
happens again. You're needed to protect Mount

[Later, as Meramon walks back to his mountain, the
Yokomon and the Digi-Destined watch him leave.]

A Yokomon: Goodbye, Meramon, may you always stay well.
Goodbye! And please try not to burn
down our village anymore, okay?

Biyomon: Hey! I just remembered you never got that
dinner we promised you. You must be starving!

T.K: My tummy's ready for some action!

[The group sits down down to bowls of some mysterious
Yokomon dish.]

Tai: What is this stuff?

Mimi: Be polite and just eat it. A gracious guest
never insults his host's cooking.

Tai: Hm. I can't tell if it's even been cooked.

Biyomon: Eat as much as you want. We have more than
enough for seconds.

Joe: Yeah, well, there's probably a good reason for

Sora: You know, that's exactly what I was afraid you
were going to say.

T.K.: It smells better than broccoli. Who knows, might
taste better!

Matt: Has anybody noticed? We talk a lot about food.

Sora: Nah, I'm not hungry.

Joe: I'm skipping this one too. I just don't like to
eat on an empty stomach. Besides, I don't even know
what that stuff is, but I'm sure I'm allergic to it!

[Sora laughs, then looks over at Biyomon.]

Sora: And so ends my biggest adventure yet with
Biyomon. One thing's for certain. For being so little,
she sure has a huge heart!
