This is the transcript of the Sonic X episode, "A Dastardly Deed".

[Scene: Thorndyke Mansion - Outside]

[The X-Tornado is ready to take off. The X-Tornado's wings fold into position.]
Tails: Stand by for takeoff!
[The palm trees fold back.]
Tails: X-Tornado, let's go!
[The X-Tornado taxis down the runway.]
Tails: Lifting off.
[The X-Tornado takes off with Amy, Chris, Danny, and Sonic aboard.]
Tails: Hold on tight, Sonic. It's time to deploy our stabilizing wings.
[The other wings fold as the X-Tornado flies out of sight.]
Frances: Do you think they'll be able to find that seventh Emerald, Mr. Thorndyke?
Chuck: It's possible, but they're not the only ones who’ll be looking for it.

[Scene: Thorndyke Mansion - Kitchen]

Ella: Don't you worry, Creamy. They're going to find that Emerald before you know it.
[Cream smiles, closes her eyes, and laughs.]
Cheese: Chao!

[Scene Change: The X-Tornado]

Amy: Any signs of the Emerald yet, Tails?
Tails: Nope.
Danny: Wow, this is so great!
[But Chris has a sad expression, and he does not answer. Sonic, who is standing on the wing, is looking around.]
Danny: Hey, c'mon. Aren't you gonna help look?
Chris: Uh, yeah, sure.
[As Danny pulls out a pair of binoculars and looks through them, Chris looks down sadly, knowing that may very well be the last day he ever sees Sonic.]

[The opening theme plays]

[Scene Change: The Egg Fort II]

[The Egg Fort II is parked in a wooded area behind a mountain. Eggman is watching Sonic's exploits and laughing.]
Decoe: It looks like Dr. Eggman is in a very good mood.
Bocoe: Yes. He seems especially confident, doesn't he?
Dr. Eggman: [Laughs] Something tells me today can be a very lucky day. In fact, those Chaos Emeralds are as good as mine if I play my cards right.
[Bocoe presents the robot cards to Eggman.]
Bocoe: Your cards.
Dr. Eggman: No need. I've already chosen my weapon.
Decoe: You mean... a new weapon, Doctor?
Bocoe: What is it?
Decoe: The suspense is killing me!
[The Egg Fort II's exit hatch opens revealing a small robot named E-77 Lucky. Eggman, Bocoe, and Decoe watch as Lucky starts walking down the ramp, but loses its balance and falls on its face.]
Decoe and Bocoe: Oh!
Decoe: You have got to be kidding, Doctor!
Bocoe: That is the strangest-looking robot I have ever seen.
Dr. Eggman: Sure! He may look like a loser, but Lucky is exactly the charm we need to capture that final Chaos Emerald!
Decoe and Bocoe: Ah!
Dr. Eggman: That's right. You see, our plucky, little pal here possesses that one elusive quality that will practically make that Emerald drop into our waiting hands. So guess.
Decoe and Bocoe: What is it?
Dr. Eggman: It's luck!
Decoe and Bocoe: Luck?
Dr. Eggman: Just wait. With Lucky on our side, we'll have that Emerald in no time.
[He looks back at the screen, which shows Lucky walking through the forest.]
Dr. Eggman: Good luck, Lucky! And bring back the prize.

[Scene Change: Forest]

[Knuckles is walking through the forest, holding the Chaos Emerald he found in Oriental City.]
Knuckles: This planet isn't so bad, I suppose, but I'd do anything to get back home. What did that voice say?
Voice: [Flashback] The servers are the seven chaos.
[Knuckles stops.]
Knuckles: We can only get back home if we find all seven Chaos Emeralds. Well... Sonic and those guys have four, Eggman's got one, and then there's this one I got from Hawk. That makes six in all. But even if we find the last one, we'd still have to convince Eggman to give up his. And since Sonic and Eggman don't seem to see eye-to-eye, we'll never get back home unless I can get them to work together.
[He hears a strange beeping noise from nearby.]
Knuckles: What's that?
[He parts the bushes and sees Lucky on its back, struggling to get up. Knuckles runs over and helps it up.]
Knuckles: You must be Eggman's robot.
[Lucky nods.]
Knuckles: Yeah? What are you doing around here?
[It points towards the Egg Fort II, which Knuckles now sees. He holds up his Emerald.]
Knuckles: Maybe the Emerald led me here somehow.

[Scene Change: Chris' school, day]

[The students are doing their work as Mr. Stewart writes on the chalkboard. Chris does not look engaged.]
Mr. Stewart: Lunch time, children.
Students: (All right!) (I'm starving!)
Frances: Chris, you wanna eat lunch with us?
[Chris does not answer.]
Danny: Yo, wake up!
Chris: Uh, I'm not too hungry right now, guys.
Frances: [Winks] 'Kay. We'll catch ya later, then.
Chris: Yeah, o-okay.
[Danny and Frances leave. Mr. Stewart notices Chris' behavior and walks over to him.]
Mr. Stewart: You know, I think you and I should visit the counseling office.
Chris: Uh, no thanks, uhh...
Mr. Stewart: Come on, Chris. Let's go.
Chris: Uh...
[He reluctantly gets up and follows Mr. Stewart to the counseling room.]

[Scene Change: Chris' school - Counseling room]

[Chris is lying on a couch, while Mr. Stewart sits on a chair nearby.]
Mr. Stewart: Are you ready Chris?
Chris: Yeah...
Mr. Stewart: Now... tell me, Chris. What's bothering you?
Chris: I don't know what's wrong with me. Lately I'm feeling really confused.
Mr. Stewart: Like you're... torn?
Chris: Yeah.
Mr. Stewart: I think I understand why. Part of you wants to help Sonic and his friends return home, but another part of you doesn't want to lose your new friends.
Chris: Huh?
Mr. Stewart: It's quite obvious that this conflict is creating a war deep within you, Chris.
[Chris immediately sits up and kneels on the bed.]
Chris: You're right! That's just how I feel, Mr. Stewart!
Mr. Stewart: It's natural, but you must face that fact that one day your friends are going to return home.
Chris: Hm.
Mr. Stewart: It's difficult, but you have to think about what's best for them.
Chris: I... know...
[Mr. Stewart lays a hand on Chris' shoulder.]
Mr. Stewart: Everything is going to be okay, I promise you.
[He steps outside the counselling room to take a call on his wrist communicator.]
Mr. Stewart: [On radio] Yes?
Officer: [Over radio] Just checking in, Chalkboard Charlie. Any problems?
Mr. Stewart: [On radio] No, sir... Nothing I can't handle.

[Scene Change: The White House]

President: So what you're saying, Rouge, is that the Chaos Control explosion that sent Eggman here was caused when the seven Chaos Emeralds came together.
Rouge: Riiight.
President: Yes, I see. So if we could create our own Chaos Control, then we just might solve our Eggman problem.
Topaz: I'm afraid it's not that simple.
[All eyes turn to her.]
President: Really? Why not?
Topaz: Mr. President, I think that we need to first consider the effects such an action could have on the safety of the planet.
Aide: Like what?
President: Quiet. Go on, Topaz.
Topaz: Moving forward without careful consideration could create a worldwide disaster. I think it's wise to do everything we can to keep that from happening, sir.
President: I see. Perhaps until we're sure of what we're getting into, we need to keep those Emeralds apart.
Topaz: I believe so, sir.
President: The question is, how do we manage to do that?
[Rouge smirks.]

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

[Chris enters the lab, where he sees Ella cleaning the room.]
Chris: Hi, Ella.
Ella: Ahh, hi, Chris. Did you have a good day?
Chris: Yeah. Where is everyone?
Ella: They're out looking for the Chaos Emerald again, like usual. And Grandpa's gone somewhere looking for new parts for his crazy machines. Thank goodness I can finally clean up this mess now.
[As Ella leaves, Chris looks around the now-empty room.]
Chris: The place seems empty... This is how it was before they all got here, and when it's gonna be when they go...
[Memories of Sonic and friends flash before his eyes, then fade. Chris heads down the stairs.]
Knuckles: [Off-screen] Hello.
[Chris sees Knuckles and Lucky standing there.]
Chris: Hey, Knuckles. What's going on?
Knuckles: Plenty.
Chris: Where'd you get that robot?
Knuckles: Well, it's not exactly mine. I think he belongs to Eggman. I found him just roaming around the forest. Seems pretty harmless, though. ... Is Sonic around. I've got to talk to him about something.
Chris: Sorry, he's out looking for the last Emerald.
Knuckles: Then give him this message. We have only one way to get back home. We've got to call a truce with Dr. Eggman.
[Chris is taken aback.]
Chris: A truce?! That'll never happen!
Knuckles: It has to.
Chris: But how? They're sworn enemies!
Knuckles: The only way any of us will get back home is to team up with Eggman. I know it might sound crazy, and it may even be impossible, but I have to convince Sonic that this the only chance we've got. We've already been away from home for way too long now, and I'm not about to let anything stand in our way of getting back there.
Chris: [To himself] Knuckles is right. I'm being selfish. I've got to do whatever I can to help them.
[Chris looks up with new determination.]
Chris: All right, Knuckles. I'll give him your message.
Knuckles: Meanwhile, I'll pay a visit to our friend Eggman.
Chris: How will you know where to find him?
Knuckles: Heh. I think I spotted his ship over at Forest Hill. Bye.
[Knuckles starts to leave, but Chris stops him.]
Chris: Knuckles!
[Knuckles looks back.]
Chris: Mind if I come along?
Knuckles: Why not?
[Chris ducks under the garage door as he, Knuckles, and Lucky leave the garage.]

[Scene Change: Train Station]

Chris: The express train will get us to Forest Hill in no time at all.
Intercom: Final boarding call, Forest Hill Express, Track 29.
[They rush to the train and board it just in time. Soon they are in their way to Forest Hill. Lucky tries to follow, but falls over as it tries to climb the stairs.]

[Scene Change: Forest Hill]

Knuckles: Don't worry, Chris. Just stay calm and I'll do all the talking.
[He notices that Lucky isn't with them.]
Knuckles: Hey, the robot... Well... Easy come, easy go.

[Scene Change: The Egg Fort II]

[Decoe sees Knuckles and Chris approaching on the monitor.]
Decoe: Whoa! Dr. Eggman, enemy approaching!
Bocoe: Prepare to launch attack!
[Bocoe is about to press a button, but Eggman stops him.]
Dr. Eggman: Wait!
Bocoe: But Dr. Eggman...
Dr. Eggman: Look there.
[They see that Chris is holding a white flag on a stick - they surrender. Soon Chris and Knuckles are aboard the craft, having finished telling the story to Eggman.]
Knuckles: Think of it this way. If we team up, we get the Emeralds together and Chaos Control sends us straight home. But if we keep fighting like this, we'll all be stuck here for good, and that's bad.
[Knuckles and Chris glance at each other.]
Dr. Eggman: Yes. Yes, yes. That's right. I've vener thought of it that way. Eh, how could I have been such a brainless greedy old fool?
[He shakes Knuckles' hand.]
Dr. Eggman: Knuckles, I don't know how to thank you!
Knuckles: The pleasure is all mine, Dr. Eggman/
[Chris breathes a sigh of relief.]
Dr. Eggman: However, I do have one condition.
Knuckles: What's that?
Dr. Eggman: That you allow me to hold onto your Chaos Emerald.
Chris: You hold it?
Dr. Eggman: Come now, don't you trust me? Nothing is more important between allies than trust. If you're asking me to trust you, the least you can do is trust me.
[Knuckles crosses his arms.]
Chris: What do you think?
Knuckles: You can hold it.
[Eggman laughs and again shakes Knuckles' hand.]
Dr. Eggman: Thanks, Knuckles. We make a great team.
Chris: [To himself] Well, he did it. I guess it was the right thing, but I don't think Sonic's gonna like it...
[Eggman, Bocoe, and Decoe watch Chris and Knuckles leave.]
Dr. Eggman: Well, well, well... Who would have thought our little friend Knuckles was such an honest fellow? As a matter of fact, I'd say he's honest to a fault!
Bocoe: What do you mean?
Dr. Eggman: I mean our naïve little knucklehead is playing right into our hands. Yes... [Laughs]

[Scene Change: Dumpster]

[A sad Lucky is sitting alone on top of a dumpster. A black cat startles him so that he falls backward ito the dumpster. A garbage truck approaches. The truck arrives, and Jerome Wise climbs out to signal to it.]
Jerome: Okay, okay. A little bit more.
[The truck inserts its prongs into the dumpster's slots. The contents of the dumpster, including Lucky, are dumped into the truck. After Jerome gets back in, the truck drives away.]

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

[The Next Show is playing.]
Next: Okay, kids, it's that time again! Everybody dance! Dance! Dance! Dance!
[Cream and Cheese are dancing along with Next. Chuck, Tails, Amy, and Sonic are also present. Just then Chris arrives.]
Chris: Hey, I'm home.
Chuck: Chris, it's late. Where have you ben all this time?
Chris: Sorry, I-I was over at Danny's house studying. Oh, by the way, did you guys find any Chaos Emeralds today?
Tails: We didn't find anything, Chris.
Chris: Ahh... That's good...
[Chris catches himself]
Chris: I-I mean that's bad.
[Tails is confused at what Chris meant. Just then Chris notices Cream and Cheese crying.]
Chris: Guys, what's wrong?
Cream: Our favorite program won't be on next week!
Cheese: Chao-chao-chao!
Chris: [Relieved] Ah. Is that all?
[He notices that three of the Chaos Emeralds are right there.]
Tails: We'll find that last Emerald, won't we?
Chuck: You bet we will, Tails.
Sonic: Well, I think I'll go for a run.
[He leaps off his hammock and runs out of the room.]
Chris: Sonic, wait up!
[He runs after Sonic. Everyone is confused at Chris' strange behavior.]
Chuck: That was strange. Wonder what's wrong?

[Scene Change: Thorndyke Mansion - Outside]

Sonic: So what's up?
Chris: Well... Sonic... I-I guess you get pretty homesick being on a different planet and all.
Sonic: Eh... I don't think about it too much. Why?
[Chris fumbles for words.]
Chris: Huh? Oh, uh, M-My teacher Mr. Stewart says hi.
Sonic: That's nice.
[He runs off.]
Chris: I bet Sonic's just as homesick as the rest of them. He's just afraid to admit it. Poor guy...

[Scene Change: Train station, night]

[Chris reunites with Knuckles at the train station.]
Knuckles: Did you get 'em?
Chris: [Nods] Mhm. I didn't tell anybody I took 'em though.
Knuckles: It's not like we're doing anything wrong. Once they find out what we did, they'll probably be grateful. Come on.
[They board the train.]

[Scene Change: Landfill]

[Lucky unburies itself from the trash and studies its surroundings.]

[Scene Change: Forest Hill]

[G.U.N. agents led by Topaz are on the scene.]
Topaz: The signal's coming from somewhere around here. Just be on your guard, boys.
[As the other agents move out, Rouge pokes her head out of a tree.]
Rouge: Why am I hanging around?
Topaz: Just keep watch. We're going to find that Emerald.
Rouge: Yeah, okay. Oh, by the way, I know where it is.
[She leads Topaz to a cliff overlooking the Egg Fort II.]
Topaz: Wow.
[She radios headquarters.]
Topaz: [On radio] Chief, I think we've found it.

[Scene Change: The White House]

[The Director of Central Intelligence opens the door to the Oval Office.]
Director of Central Intelligence: Mr. President. Good news, sir. We've found Eggman's base.
President: Let's make the call.
Aide: Right.
[The aide walks over to a phone and picks it up.]
Aide: Report to Area 99 to dispatch the Beetle immediately.

[Scene Change: Forest Hill]

[Rouge is hovering in midair in a relaxed position.]
Topaz: You ready?
Rouge: Sure.
[She notices something in the distance.]
Rouge: Oh... Hold on...
[That "something", or rather, "somethings" is Chris and Knuckles returning to the Egg Fort II with the Chaos Emeralds.]
Topaz: Why are those two here?
[The two glance at each other.]

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

[Sonic races back into the lab.]
Sonic: Hey, I-- huh?
[He notices that Chuck, Amy, Cream, and Cheese are looking at where the Emeralds used to be.]
Sonic: Oh, what's up?
Cream: Chris took the Chaos Emeralds...
Cheese: Chao chao chao...
Sonic: But why?
[Chuck reads aloud a note that Chris had left.]
Chuck: He left us a letter explaining why. "I'm taking the Emeralds so that you can all get back home very soon." I can't understand why in the world he would do something so foolhardy.
Amy: We'd better go look for him, Chuck.
[Sonic looks at a picture of Chris.]
Chris: [Flashback] Well... Sonic... I-I guess you get pretty homesick being on a different planet and all.
[Tails appears in the doorway.]
Tails: Chris took the Chaos Emeralds from inside the X-Tornado too! We can only fly it in normal mode now!
[Sonic runs right past him.]
Amy: Where'd he go?

[Scene Change: Landfill]

[Lucky is walking along the piles of trash when it stumbles over a can and falls to the bottom of the pile. It lands on a box, which opens, revealing the seventh Chaos Emerald.]

[Scene Change: The Egg Fort II]

[Knuckles and Chris arrive. Eggman's chair descends from above and slides on a track to a table between him and the others.]
Dr. Eggman: Ah, my new friends. Welcome.
Knuckles: We brought them.
[Chris places his backpack on the table.]
Dr. Eggman: Let me see.
[Chris unzips the backpack, revealing four Chaos Emeralds.]
Dr. Eggman: Oh, my. Aren't they lovely! And I have my Chaos Emerald right here.
[He places a small box on the table.]
Dr. Eggman: I could open the box and show it to you, but it's not safe to expose it to the others.
Knuckles: Not yet.

[Scene Change: Train station]

[Sonic shows a picture of Chris to an officer.]
Officer: Yeah, I saw. Let's see... I think he got on the 4:00 train to Forest Hill.
Sonic: To Forest Hill?

[Scene Change: The Egg Fort II]

[Eggman holds the box and Chris' backpack containing the Chaos Emeralds.]
Dr. Eggman: I'll hold onto the Emeralds and put them in a safe place.
[Chris opens his mouth to protest.]
Knuckles: Okay, Doc.
[Just then Decoe appears on the video screen.]
Decoe: Excuse me, Doctor? There is an urgent call from Lucky.
[The screen switches to Lucky, who communicates to Eggman by beeping.]
Dr. Eggman: Whaaat?! You discovered the last Chaos Emerald in a pile of garbage?! Well done! Stay where you are; I'll come to you!
[Chris and Knuckles exchange thumbs-ups.]
Chris: Dr. Eggman, did he really find it?
Dr. Eggman: Of course he did! Building a robot that brings good luck was my most brilliant stroke of genius!
Bocoe: Does this mean we are out of a job?
Decoe: [Shakes head] No such luck.
Dr. Eggman: Well, we have them all, don't we!
Chris: That's great!
Knuckles: Yeah, now I can finally go home!
Dr. Eggman: Haah... Oh-kaay.
Decoe: Hahahaha!
[He presses a button, and Knuckles falls through a trap door.]
Chris: Aah! What do you think you're doing, Eggman?
[Eggman belts out a laugh, then stands up close to Chris.]
Dr. Eggman: Wise up. You didn't really believe that I was homesick like your loser friends, did you? The only thing I care about is establishing the Eggman Empire. I can do that on my planet, or yours. It makes no difference to me.
Chris: Then you... lied to us, didn't you?!
Dr. Eggman: Heheheh... Ready the Egg Fort II for takeoff!
Decoe and Bocoe: Aye-aye!

[Scene Change: Forest Hill]

[The Egg Fort II's engines roar to life, then the craft begins to lift off the ground. Rouge and Topaz are buffeted by the winds the craft generates.]
Rouge: He's leaving.
Topaz: [On radio] HQ, come in! Emergency.
[A secret hatch on the craft opens and Knuckles falls out.]
Knuckles: Eggman!
[Sonic arrives.]
Sonic: Where's Chris?
Knuckles: Up there. Eggman has him in his ship along with all the Chaos Emeralds.
[The Egg Fort II takes off. Sonic pursues the Egg Fort II.]
Knuckles: Good luck, Sonic!
Narrator: Will Sonic stop Eggman in time to save his friends? Find out, next time!
