Queen Aleena: Now that Robotnik had identified my children, he would not
              rest until he found them.
Robotnik: Find those hedgehogs - or you'll get to inspect my prison
Sleet: Three little hedgehogs? I still don't understand Sir - what harm could
       they possibl...
Robotnik: Queen Aleena's brats can destroy everything! FIND THEM!
Sleet: Yes Your Grace - leave it to us Sir!
[Dingo looks at the picture of Sonia, and starts daydreaming]
Sleet: What are you doing, you oaf?
Dingo: She's pretty...
Sleet: And you're ugly - now let's get to work!

Sonia: AAAAAAAAAAAARGHHHH! Get it away from me!
Sonic: What? What is it?
Sonia: Under the bed! Get it out! Get it out!
Manic: Get what?
Sonic: A MOUSE?! Every force in Robotropolis is on our butts and you're
       wigging out over a mouse?
Manic and Sonic: We're in trouble!
Sonia: Wait! Where's the maid? I'd like my breakfast now!
Manic and Sonic: Definately trouble!

Sleet: Ooh, we've got them now!
Dingo: So now do we call Robotnik?
Sleet: To catch three little hedgehogs?

Sonia: North through the marsh of Melador and into the Badlands. Ewww! Gross!
Sonic: So where do we wind up?
Sonia: Right here in Weslock!
Sonic: Well wherever it is, we gotta get out of here and fast!
Sonia: Now? But I can't leave! Not without my matched luggage and some new
Sonic: Sorry, this is all you're getting! [throws backpack at Sonia]
Sonia: Does it come in purple?
Manic: Hey, man, why the speed?
[A SWATbot burts through the door]
SWATbot: Priority One - Hedgehogs!
Sonic: Get in the basement - middle of hall - I'll hold him off!
[SWATbot throws Sonic against the wall]
Sonic: Phew! This is NOT a good start!
Manic: You go ahead! I'll get the bot's attention! Hey bolthead!
[The SWATbot just picks Manic up]
Sonic: Aw, nice diversion bro!
Sleet: This is taking too long. Go in and help the metalheads! Go!
Dingo: You mean... through the door there?
Sleet (sarcastically): No, through the WALL, genius!
Dingo: Okie-dokie!
[Dingo runs right through the wall]
Sonic: Not so fast, not so fast, metal-mouth!
[Sonic leaps onto the SWATbot's head, which immediately starts spinning fast!]
Sonic: Whoa! Manic! Control panel in arm - shut it off!
Manic: Come on, come on! There!
[Manic shuts the SWATbot down]
Manic: Phew! Thanks bro!
Sonic: No problemo! Let's grab Sonia and blast out of here!

Sonia: Oh I'd love to go with you and visit Dr. Robotnik! Would you be
       a sweetheart and get my coat for me?
Dingo: Oh yeah, sure! Sure!
Sonia: It's right in there... [pushes Dingo into the basement]
Sonic: Sonia! You okay?
Sonia: Not just okay, but thanks to me a bad guy is out of commission! Down
       there! [points to basement] Isn't that great?
Sonic: Well that was our escape route!
Sonia: Oh...
Sonic: Luckily the bad guys gave us another one...
Sleet: Which, unfortunately you won't be able to use! [produces gun]
       Move back, move back please. I'm afraid you'll have to come along
       with me...
[Dingo opens the basement door, slamming it right in Sleet's face]
Dingo: I couldn't find your coat Sohnia... huh?
Sonic: Time for Plan B!
Sonia: What's that?
Sonic: Same as Plan A - the basement!
Dingo: Bye Sohnia...

Sonia: I am NEVER setting foot in a sewer again - it's dirty, it's smelly,
       and it's disgusting!
Manic: Hey, that's my home you're talking about princess!
Sonic: Oh sorry your ladyship - next time we'll get you a carriage! Now
       where's the scroll?
Sonia: You... actually live... in a sewer?
Sonic: I'm waiting...
Manic: Yeah, so?
Sonia: It's just that it's so... yucky!
Sonic: The scroll?
Manic: Problem - it got torched! What's left is back at the safehouse!
Sonic: Then we've got to go back!
Sonia: No we don't - hey! Hey! Let me go!
[Sonic pulls Sonia back into the sewer]
Sonic: Sorry, we gotta have the scroll!
Manic: What's the matter? Is the Duchess afr
aid to get her feet dirty?
[Manic jumps into the sewer channel and splashes Sonic and Sonia with
dirty water]
Sonia: If you'd let me finish... we HAVE the scroll! Right here! I have
       a photographic memory!
Sonic: Photographic memory?
Manic: OOH!
Sonia: Aw, give me a break!
Manic and Sonic: CHEEEEESE! Hahaha!

Sleet: The hedgehogs got away Sir.
Robotnik: You call yourselves Bounty Hunters! You couldn't catch fish in a
Dingo: Aw, I think we could, if the bowl was...
Sleet: Sir, we found this! [shows scroll]
Robotnik: What is it?
Sleet: A map, Sir, I think I know where they're going!

[A bird flies past]
Manic: Yo, what was that?
Sonic: It's a bird - just like the bird yesterday, and the bird the day
       before - sheesh!
Manic: Hey, I'm a city boy okay?
Sonia: More bread - how gourmet(!) So what did you do in the city, Manic?
Manic: I was er... in the family business. We... er... move things!
Sonia: Like import-export?
Sonic: No, like a THIEF!
Sonia: A thief? Oh!
Manic: How'd you know? 
Sonic: Resistance! We gotta know about everybody!
Manic: Hey, don't worry Princess, I don't steal from family!
Sonia: Oh - I-I-I didn't mean...
Sonic: We were all born with silver spoons in our mouths Sonia - you just got
       to keep yours!
Manic: Yeah, I had to steal mine! Hahahaha!
Sonic: Come on guys, we've got a long way to go!
Gondar: Not all that far!
Sonic: Huh? Who are you?
Gondar: I am Gondar, sent by the Oracle of Delphius. I am here to train you.
Sonic: Whoa, that's perfect - 'cause we're here to be trained!
Gondar: Hahahahaha!

Gondar: Left! Right! Left! Right!
Sonia: Couldn't training start at a more reasonable hour?
Manic: You got that right - I'm used to coming home around now!
Gondar: Here you will develop your natural abilities, and find talents hidden
        deep within you!
Sonic: Could we get this show on the road while I'm still young?
Sonia: Wow, wouldn't it be ironic if your hidden talent was patience?
Sonic: What makes you say that?
[Sonic and Sonia look at each other angrily]
Gondar: I think NOW is a good time to start!

[Sonic is practicing a Super Twirl like Sonia]
Gondar: Once more Sonic - Focus! Concentrate! Now, a little faster!
        Good! Good! Now, faster! Balance Sonic - Balance!
Sonic: I'm trying, I'm trying!
[Sonic hits a tree and falls down]
Gondar: You see how important it is to keep your balance Sonia?
Sonia: Absolutely! Otherwise you get _really_ dirty!
Gondar: Ah, yes. Well, let's get started - first, speed! Sonic! See the
        tallest tree on the mountain over there?
Sonic: Yeah, and?
Gondar: Go to that tree! When I drop this rock, catch it before it hits the
Sonic: No problemo! Ready!
[Sonic tries to run over and catch the rock, but he goes too fast and hits
a tree]
Sonic: Next time... I'll get it next time...
[Next, Sonic and Sonia practice their Super Twirls, but hit each other and
fall down]
[Then, Manic tries spinning a drumstick and sending it spinning round a tree,
but the drumstick comes back and hits him!]
Gondar: Oh boy...
Sonia: Hyaaa! Hyaaa! Hyaaaa!
[Sonia uses her flying kicks to break planks of wood, held by Sonic, Manic
and Gondar]
[Manic sends the spinning drumstick round the tree again, but this time
catches it and throws it at a dartboard, hitting the bullseye!]
[Sonic successfully catches the rock before it hits the ground]
[Sonia uses her Super Twirl to lift up a rock and throw it elsewhere]
Sonia: Yes!
Sonic: Go, sis!
Manic: Well done!

[Back in Robotropolis, Robotnik is analysing the fragment of map]
Robotnik: If this location is anywhere on the planet, it will show up here!
[Finds location]
Robotnik: Excellent! Let's see what kind of bounty hunters you really are!
Take my command ship and a full detachment! Get me those hedgehogs!

[Sonic speeds away]
Gondar: Now you, Sonia!
Sonia: Back in a few!
[Sonia twirls away]
Gondar: Manic...
Manic: I've been thinking - maybe they could do better without me...
[Sonia and Sonic are speeding about]
Manic: I mean, my talents just... don't exactly measure up!
Gondar: Leaving would be a mistak
e, young friend. Soon you will find a talent
        that has been hidden. Use it to help your cause.
Manic: What is it?
Gondar: When the time comes, you will know.
Sonic: So what now, Gondar?
Sonia: More super-spins?
Gondar: No, your time here is over. Now I send you to your next teaching
        ????? - the land of the clouds!
Sonic: Who?
Sonia: Where?
Manic: When?
Gondar: Ssh!
Sonic: I don't hear anything!
Gondar: Ships! Approaching fast!
SWATBot: Approaching Destination - ETA 1 Minute.
Sleet: Say goodbye, hedgehog brats! You're about to take a one-way ride on
       the Sleet Express!
Sonic: Robuttnik's ships!
Sleet: Surrender, hedgehogs! You have 10 seconds!
[The ships start firing lasers, blasting the trees]
Sleet: Five seconds, hedgehogs!
Sonic: I'll show him five seconds! Robuttnik's ships are gonna destroy your
Gondar: Obviously you haven't heard about our trees...
Sleet: Well they can run but they can't hide!
Dingo: Yeah!
Sleet: All ships - destroy this place! I'll snatch the hedgehogs!
Sonia: He's gonna get us!
Gondar: Watch...
[The trees spray something on the ships, causing them to crash]
Sleet: I can't see! Pull up! Pull up!
Sonia: Amazing!
Gondar: Time for you to go! Use the scroll!
[Gondar hands the hedgehogs a scroll]
Sonia: Is it a map?
Gondar: In a manner of speaking...
[The hedgehogs get teleported to the Land of the Clouds, where there is a
floating temple]
[A hooded monk approaches them]
Sonic: Hi, guy!
Sonia: Should we follow him?
[The hedgehogs follow the monk up the invisible stairway]
Sonic: Way past cool!
Sonia: Impressive!
[The monk leads them into an empty room]
Sonia: How... uncluttered!
Sonic: Easy to clean! So, do you talk, or what?
Sonia: Sonic! He's a monk!
Monk: I do indeed speak!
Manic: Whoa, thought we were gonna have to become mimes!
Monk: Your medallions - they are a source of great power!
[The medallions start to shine]
Sonia: Just like the night we met at the club!
Monk: But to use the power, you must find harmony among yourselves.
Sonic: Hmm... you mind gettin' to the point bud, what kind of power?
Manic: Chill, Sonic, listen to him!
Monk: The first power is simple, the power of music!
[The monk sends some power into the medallions]
Sonic: What was that?
Monk: Touch your medallions. You first!
Sonic: No problemo!
[The medallions transform into instruments]
Sonic: Ooh!
Sonia: It's beautiful!
Manic: Crashin'!
Monk: They have other uses as well - but only if you work together in harmony.
      Your first test begins now.
[The hedgehogs are teleported to a dark alleyway with a monster advancing
on them]
Sonic: Former boyfriend?
Sonia: Cute! Okay, what should we do?
Sonic: I'll knock him out with a Super Spin! Spin'n'Win time!
Manic: Hey, I know this lock! [picks the lock with a conveniently placed nail]
Sonia: Sonic wait! NO!
[Sonic tries to Super Spin the monster, but the monster just picks him up!]
[Sonia then tries her Super Twirl on the monster, but the monster just picks
her up too!]
[Suddenly the hedgehogs are teleported back to the temple]
Monk: You have failed your first test. There will be no more training. Your
      heart was good, but you used poor judgement. Your actions were correct.
      Had you all worked together, your escape would have been a simple one.
Sonic: It was me! I got us killed!
Monk: Yes. Your impulsiveness, your rash actions. your inability to work as
      a team. These will be your undoings, and may perhaps cause the end of
      your siblings!
Sonia: Just a minute buster! Sonic may be impatient and impulsive, but he's
       braver than anyone I've ever met!
Monk: It is not about bravery.
Manic: Hey, you're talking about one of the best Freedom Fighters there is!
       He saved my butt a couple of times! If you ask me, we don't need your
       stupid training!
Monk: Ah, you defend your brother! [puts hood down] Now, that is harmony!
      Strive to find this in your training, which will continue, tomorrow
      morning - or perhaps before!
Sonic: Wow! You guys really stood up for me!
Sonia: Well, you've saved me more
 than once, and besides, you are my brother! [kisses Sonic]
Sonic: YOU'RE not gonna kiss me are you?
Manic: No way! But you _are_ kinda cute!
Sonia: Hey! Are we gonna let these cool instruments go to waste?

[Song: working together in harmony]

When there's a job to do you've got to pull together as a team
When to fight, when to wait, everyone must communicate

Working together, (together) that's how it should be
Working together, (together) just you and me
Working together, whoa-oa-oa-oa, in harmony, oh-oh!

Paa paa paa pa-pa pa pa pa paa
Pa pa pa paa paa paa pa-pa pa pa pa paa

Working together, whoa-oa-oa-oa, in harmony, oh-oh!
If we'd all work together, everyone, in harmony, oh-oh!
Sweet harmony, harmony!

Sonia: Group hug!
Sonic: I think this is the start of something way past cool!
