This is the transcript of the Sonic X episode, "A Chaotic Day".

[Scene: Thorndyke Mansion - Chuck's lab]

[Chris, Chuck, Sonic, Knuckles, and Big are gathered up in the lab, drinking coffee.]
Sonic: Shouldn't we be out trying to stop Eggman instead of taking a coffee break?
Chuck: I'm hoping that we could put our heads together and unravel the mystery of Eggman's Chaos creature.
Knuckles: It's the most powerful thing I've ever seen. We watched it gulp down two Chaos Emeralds like they were candy.
Sonic: They made that thing even stronger!
Chuck: It sounds like it's going to be a real challenge to defeat this creature.
Knuckles: It will. I knew it would be trouble when I saw it on Angel Island.

[Scene Change: Angel Island - Flashback]

[It will. I knew it would be trouble when I saw it on Angel Island. ]
Knuckles: [As Narrator] After Chaos Control happened, Angel Island was transported into this world. That's where the Master Emerald was, and I guarded it around the clock. One night, a huge bolt of lightning woke me up. But this wasn't an ordinary thunderstorm. Something very strange was happening at the summit. I knew the Master Emerald was in danger, but it was too late. And that's when I saw it.
[He awakens to see Chaos, in its normal form, standing at the top of the shrine.]

[The opening theme plays]

[Scene Change: Thorndyke Mansion - Chuck's lab]

Chris: If the Master Emerald's on Angel Island, why aren't you there now protecting it?
Knuckles: Because it's too late. The Chaos creature made sure of that.

[Scene Change: Angel Island - Flashback]

[The flasback resumes.]
Knuckles: Hey! Who are you?
[Chaos growls viciously while waving his arms. Knuckles sees that the Master Emerald has been shattered.]
Knuckles: What happened to the Master Emerald? Are you the one who destroyed it?
[Knuckles punches Chaos, but no damage is done, and Chaos in return smacks the echidna with its head, sending him back a few steps. Chaos then dissolves into a puddle.]
Knuckles: Wait!
[But Chaos evaporates.]
Knuckles: Blast! Where did that thing go?
[Suddenly there is an earthquake.]
Knuckles: Now what?
[Angel Island begins to fall into the ocean.]
Knuckles: The Master Emerald keeps this island hovering in the air, but it can't if it's shattered!
[The flashback ends.]

[Scene Change: Thorndyke Mansion - Chuck's lab]

Chuck: You shouldn't blame yourself for what that creature did, Knuckles.
Chris: Big, when you were looking for Froggy in the forest, didn't you see something that looked like Chaos?

[Scene Change: Forest - flashback]

[Chaos, in its puddle form, flows out of the rocks and forces itself inside Froggy.]
Big: Hey, you find another one, Froggy?
[Froggy suddenly grows a tail.]
Big: Hey, am I seein' things? You're growing a tail!
[Froggy turns round to face Big, and leaps towards him as the flashback ends.]

[Scene Change: Thorndyke Mansion - Chuck's lab]

Big: I tried to catch Froggy, but he was faster than me, and he hopped away with something I found in the forest.
Chris: What was that?
Big: It was a big purple rock. It looked awful pretty when it was glowing.
[Chris stands up.]
Chris: That sounds like it could have been a Chaos Emerald!
Chuck: If that's the case, then we'd better find that little frog quick or it won't survive long.
Chris: Why, Grandpa?
Chuck: Because Dr. Eggman is determined to do anything to seize an Emerald. The more Emeralds he feeds that Chaos creature, the easier it will be to take over this world.

[Scene Change: Station Square - Flashback]

[In another flashback from the previous day, Chaos emerges from the manhole and approaches the police officers.]
Police officer 1: What is it?
Police officer 2: Run!
[The liquid strikes the hoods of two police cars, then turns back to the officers. The flashback ends.]

[Scene Change: Thorndyke Mansion - Chuck's lab]

Chuck: It's vital we find those Emeralds before Eggman uses their power to conquer us all.
Sonic: [Stands up] No sweat. I'll find 'em.
Chris: You have a plan, Sonic?
Sonic: You know I prefer to think on my feet.
Knuckles: I'll go and look for the broken pieces of the Master Emerald.
Chris: I guess Big and I can go try to look for Froggy together.
Big: Hm... That's a good idea.

[Scene Change: Thorndyke Mansion - Outside.]

[Ella, Cream and Cheese watch the others go. Chuck and Sonic are in one group, Chris and Big are in another, and Knuckles goes alone.

[Scene Change: Mystic Ruins - Tails' workshop]

[Tails is working on the X-Tornado.]
Sonic: [Off-screen] Tails!
[Tails turns to see Sonic standing in the doorway.]
Sonic: Hey.
Tails: Hiya, Sonic. So we have to track down the Chaos Emeralds all over again.
Sonic: If we fail, Eggman will win. You think you're up to the challenge?
Tails: [Laughs] I already started collecting 'em!
[Sonic is surprised.]
Tails: Ta-daa!
[Tails opens the X-Tornado's side door, revealing the green Chaos Emerald.]
Tails: I just found this Emerald yesterday. We can use it to pinpoint where all the other Emeralds are, and it'll make tracking 'em down a lot easier.
[Sonic whistles]
Sonic: Now you're starting to think like me!
[Soon, Sonic and Tails board the X-Tornado and pullout onto the runway.]
Tails: Hang on. Ready for takeoff.
[They take off into the overcast sky.]

[Scene Change: Station Square]

[Police officers are blocking off a damaged casino. Knuckles arrives.]
Knuckles: What happened, officer?
Police Officer 1: Hey, it's Knuckles.
Police Officer 2: Whoa! Think you and me could get a picture taken to show the guys back at the station?
Knuckles: Maybe later. Do you guys have any idea what smashed into that building?
Police Officer 1: Well, sort of. Witnesses say it was a glowing object that fell from the sky.
[Knuckles grabs the officer.]
Knuckles: A what? You sure?!
Police Officer 1: Well, I...

[Scene Change: The casino]

[The officers take Knuckles into the casino. There is a Master Emerald shard embedded in the ground.]
Knuckles: A piece of the Master Emerald...
[He bends down, and the shard levitates into the air and lands in his hand, shocking the officers. Then the crystal glows, and Knuckles has a vision.]

[Scene Change: Master Emerald shrine]

[The vision takes Knuckles to the Master Emerald shrine.]
Knuckles: This place seems like Mystic Ruin, but the buildings should be ancient. Why do they look brand new?
[As he advances towards the shrine, he catches sight of his ancestors, Tikal the Echidna and her father, Chief Pachacamac.]
Tikal: We must stop the invasion, Father.
Pachacamac: Tikal, you know I must seize those Emeralds for the good of our tribe. When we have them, we will be strong.
Tikal: But this plan of yours is foolish! It will bring nothing but grief to our land and cause needless pain and suffering to our neighbors! There must be another way. We should not try to help our own kind by bringing harm to someone else. It's wrong.
[The vision ends.]

[Scene Change: The casino]

Police Officer: You feeling okay, pal?
[Knuckles nods.]
Police Officer: Since there wasn't a crime, we won't need that rock as evidence, will we?
Police Officer 2: No. Knuckles can keep it.
Knuckles: If you find any more Emeralds like this, let me know.
[He leaves with the shard.]
Knuckles: [To himself] I couldn't protect the Master Emerald, but I will gather what's left of it.

[Scene Change: Mystic Ruins]

[The X-Tornado runs into turbulence.]
Tails: The Chaos Emerald's detected something!
[There is a distinct glow among the plateaus in the distance.]
Sonic: Down there.
[After landing, Tails holds out his Chaos Emerald to search for the other one. However, a strong gust of wind nearly blows Tails away.]
Sonic: Gotcha!
[Sonic catches Tails.]
Sonic: Are you okay?
Tails: I'm fine. The wind caught me by surprise.
[They resume the search. Tails' Chaos Emerald begins to glow.]
Tails: This must be the spot.
[They stop at the place that the other Chaos Emerald was glowing.]
Sonic: We'll see.
[Sonic uses a Power Ring-powered spin to burrow through the ground. The blue Chaos Emerald surfaces.]
Tails: Another Emerald.
Sonic: Haha, yeah!
[Sonic surfaces.]
Tails: I sure hope the other ones are this easy to track down.
Sonic: Yeah, me too.
[Another gust of wind blows.]
Tails: The wind's getting worse!
Sonic: Oh, great.
[They look up to see a laughing Eggman in his Egg Hornet. He flies over Sonic and Tails, and the resulting gust of air causes Tails to drop his Emeralds. A claw extends from the Egg Hornet and collects both of them. He laughs again.]
Dr. Eggman: My scheme worked like a charm. You get all the groundwork, and I get all the glory, not to mention the Chaos Emeralds!
Tails: Sonic, he followed us here!
Dr. Eggman: I'll see you next time, boys! Next time you find a Chaos Emerald, that is!
[He starts to fly away.]
Sonic: Hold it!
[Sonic jumps onto the wing of the Egg Hornet.]
Dr. Eggman: Oh, great...
[Sonic repeatedly punches the Egg Hornet's windshield. Twin drills extend out of the front of the Egg Hornet, and he embeds them into the ground, shaking Sonic off.]
Tails: Here!
[Tails tosses a Power Ring to Sonic, who catches it. Eggman tries to drill into Sonic, but Sonic spins in place. Upon collision with one of the drills, the drill is sliced off.]
Dr. Eggman: How dare you!
[Sonic then spin-dashes at the Egg Hornet, destroying it. The Eggmobile ejects from it as both Chaos Emeralds fall into a nearby lake.]
Tails: We'll have to fish 'em out!
[However, the emeralds glow brightly for a brief moment before fading. Eggman laughs.]
Dr. Eggman: You can come on out now, Chaos 4!
[Chaos rises from the water.]
Tails: What do we do now?
[Chaos lets forth a low growl and emits a strong shock wave that blasts Sonic and Tails backwards. Sonic lands on his feet, but Tails lands on his back.]
Sonic: You stay here; I'll handle it!
[Sonic leaps onto a lily pad, but a giant water geyser created by Chaos forces him onto another lily pad. He leaps from pad to pad before stomping on Chaos, turning him into many bubbles, and reaching dry ground.]
Tails: Oh yeah!
[The bubbles that were Chaos reform themselves into Chaos 4. He sends another shock wave at Sonic, but this time he is prepared. He leaps over it and onto Chaos. Both go under the water.]
Tails: Ah! Sonic!
Dr. Eggman: Now keep dunking Sonic 'til he's totally washed up!
[Sonic holds onto Chaos' horn as he leaps out of the water a few times. Sonic then feels the wind.]
Sonic: Alright, the wind!
[Sonic lets go of Chaos as the latter lands back in the water. Sonic then spins in midair.]
Dr. Eggman: Watch out, Chaos 4!
[He homing-attacks Chaos, causing it to dissolve again.]
Tails: That finished it off for sure!
[Sonic lands next to Tails.]
Sonic: Well, Eggman, Chaos had a meltdown!
Dr. Eggman: It's not over!
[He uses the Eggmobile's tractor beam to abduct Chaos.]
Dr. Eggman: This round you got a lucky break, but next time you'll just get broken! Count on it, Sonic!
[The Eggmobile flies away. Sonic raises a fist to Eggman.]
Sonic: Dream on, Eggman!
[Eggman stop as Sonic and Tails witness the Egg Carrier flying overhead.]
Dr. Eggman: Thanks again for the Chaos Emeralds! Keep up the good work! Hahahahaha!
[He flies inside as the Egg Carrier leaves.]
Tails: Dr. Eggman will be more powerful now because I dropped those Emeralds. I'm real sorry, Sonic.
Sonic: Forget it. We'll get those Emeralds back.

[Scene Change: Station Square]

[Amy is walking alone through the city. Suddenly the sky darkens.]
Amy: That's funny... The sky's getting dark, but there wasn't anything in the forecast about a storm.
[She looks up, as do the other citizens, to see the Egg Carrier flying over the city. The X-Tornado is on its tail.]
Amy: The X-Tornado.

[Scene Change: The skies above Station Square]

Sonic: Stay on him, Tails!
[The X-Tornado and Egg Carrier exchange laser fire.]

[Scene Change: The Egg Carrier]

Dr. Eggman: They're closing in. Now I can't miss!
[Eggman pulls a lever.]

[Scene Change: Outside]

[A new laser turret appears and blasts the X-Tornado.]
Tails: I'll have to knock that thing out!
[The targeting computer's crosshairs align with the laser turret.]
Tails: Missiles away!
[The X-Tornado fires several missiles at the turret, destroying it.]

[Scene Change: Station Square]

Amy: Something just fell out of Eggman's ship. Wonder what?
[Suddenly a Flicky falls on her head, sending her sprawling. Notably, the Flicky is wearing a collar of some sort.]
Amy: Ow!... My head's not a landing pad...
[She notices the Flicky and picks it up.]
Amy: You poor little thing! Are you hurt?
[The Flicky replies.]

[Scene Change: The skies above Station Square]

Sonic: Let's finish him!
Tails: Ready when you are, Sonic!

[Scene Change: The Egg Carrier]

Dr. Eggman: Prepare to fire Eggman Cannon! I want them knocked out of the sky!
Decoe: Affirmative, Doctor. Charging sequence proceeding.
Bocoe: Barrier shield activated. Anti-shock systems are online.
Dr. Eggman: Let's blow the X-Tornado away!

[Scene Change: Outside]

[The Eggman Cannon fires a massive beam that breaks off part of one of the X-Tornado wings and otherwise damage the craft.]
Tails: He hit our wing!
[The X-Tornado plummets.]

[Scene Change: Station Square]

Amy: Sonic!
[She races in the direction the X-Tornado is flying in.]

[Scene Change: The skies above Station Square]

[Eggman laughs as the Egg Carrier flies away.]

[Scene Change: Earth]

[Tails is walking alone, looking for Sonic.]
Tails: Sonic! Sonic!
[Suddenly a robot appears and begins chasing Tails. Sonic shows up in the Tornado and blasts the robot, destroying it.]
Tails: Sonic!
[Sonic swoops down, allowing Tails to climb aboard.]
Sonic: You take over.
[Tails takes over the controls.]
Tails: Where are you going?
[Sonic stands at the front of the plane.]
Sonic: It's more fun up here!
[They see an army of robots below them.]
Tails: Sonic, what do we do now?
Sonic: Dive right at 'em!
Tails: Okay... [To himself] When I'm with Sonic, I feel like I can do anything!

[Scene Change: Thorndyke Manor - Living room]

[Tails awakens to find that he is wearing bandages and is lying on the couch.]
Tails: [To himself] Huh? Sonic! We did it! We stopped the robots!
[He looks around.]
Tails: Huh? A dream?
[He sits up.]
Tails: But where am I?
[He notices Chuck standing nearby.]
Chuck: Hey, how are you feeling?
Tails: My head hurts... Where's Sonic?
Chuck: He's fine. Your piloting skills saved you both from serious injury or worse.
[Sonic is watching the news. The Egg Carrier is seen firing its lasers. Then the picture cuts to the citizens below. They are talking about the Egg Carrier.]
News Reporter: The skies in Station Square erupted in turmoil earlier this afternoon as Dr. Eggman battled the X-Tornado.
People: (Oh, no way! Eggman's come to take over Station Square again!)
Chuck: Unfortunately, Eggman got away in his ship.
[Tails looks down sadly.]
Chuck: I'm afraid the X-Tornado's sustained heavy damage.
Tails: But we're not giving up, are we, Sonic? We're going to get those Emeralds back somehow!
Sonic: You bet we are!
Chuck: Amy and Cream went out shopping. I hope they make it back without any trouble.
Person on TV: (It looks like that Eggman's ship is going away!)
Sonic: I'll check on 'em.
[He leaves.]

[Scene Change: Station Square]

[Amy, Cream, and Cheese are carrying groceries home. The Flicky is flying alongside them.]
Amy: Sonic and Tails were pretty banged up, but they'll feel a lot better after they eat the gourmet meal we cook for them!
Cream: Yeah. Now I can try out all the fancy recipes that Ella taught me.
Amy: Right, Cream. It'll be the best meal ever!
[Cheese struggles under the weight of the two bags he is carrying.]
Cheese: Chao chao!
Amy: And Cheese. We'll need your help cooking too.
Cheese: Chao chao!
Amy: [To the Flicky] You recovered from your fall pretty fast, little bird.
Cream: I wonder where it came from, and if it has a name?
[The Flicky responds.]
Amy: We can't understand you.
Cream: We don't speak bird.
Amy: Hey, maybe we should give you a name.
[She thinks of a name.]
Amy: I know! What if we call you Lily?
[The Flicky responds happily.]
Cream: It likes that name, Amy.
Amy: Huh. Then Lily it is. Wherever you come from, Lily, I promise I'm gonna get you back home.
[She looks up to see one of Eggman's robots approaching her. It is ZERO.]
ZERO: Subject identified.
Amy: What's that thing?
[Meanwhile, Sonic hears Amy scream.]
Sonic: Amy!
[He arrives to bags of spilled food, and ZERO escaping with Amy and Lily.]
Amy: Let me goooo!
Cream: Please, somebody help her!
Cheese: Chao chao!
Sonic: Hold on, Amy!
[Sonic runs past them.]
Amy: Sonic!
ZERO: Mission accomplished.
[ZERO takes off into the sky.]
Sonic: Amy!
Amy: Help!
[Sonic watches Amy being flown out of sight. The episode ends.]
