This is the transcript of the Sonic X episode, "Hedgehog Hunt".

Narrator: Last time on Sonic X, a fleet of Metarex led by Dr. Eggman sent Sonic and friends into shipshock. Our heroes battled bravely, but were greatly outnumbered by their fearsome foes. Sonic rushed to counterattack when Eggman activated the ultimate speed trap -- an energy barrier that Sonic couldn't crack. With the end at hand, Tails came up with a perilous plan, and thanks to the power of the Master Emerald, our heroes foiled the enemy fleet and escaped. But with the rest of the Metarex closing in, can Sonic and friends survive another siege? Or have they only delayed their doom? Find out next on Sonic X!

[The opening theme plays.]

[Scene: A Metarex space station]

[There is a giant Metarex space station floating in deep space. Metarex craft of all kinds are flying around the station, or are docked, including the Metarex generals' battleships, MTRX-1s, and Metarex Fighters. Everyone turns to attention as they see Dark Oak standing behind a lectern on a stage nearby.]
Dark Oak: We have Sonic on the run. He is hiding somewhere in this area.
[He gestures to the radar screen nearby.]
Black Narcissus: They picked an excellent refuge. Thare are intense electromagnetic waves in that region of space.
Pale Bayleaf: The scanners will be useless. He and his crewmates have the opportunity to recover from their battle.
Dark Oak: We will find them, and when we do, they will be completely destroyed! With your help, Dr. Eggman.
[Eggman looks confused.]
Dark Oak: Once Sonic has been eliminated, the victory of the Metarex will be assured. Any resistance against us will be futile!
[Dark Oak walks off the stage.]
Yellow Zelkova: We'll stomp on those rebels like they're a bunch of ants! And then we'll fulfill the destiny of the galaxy!
[The Metarex Troopers near him snap to attention. Bayleaf chuckles. Narcissus walks away, and notices Eggman standing there.]
Black Narcissus: What's the matter, Doctor? Don't you like the plan? Speak up! You do have an objection, don't you?
Dr. Eggman: All right, if you insist on knowing. One thing still bothers me about you Metarex. I can't figure out what you're trying to accomplish with all this destruction. I can understand trying to conquer planets, but if you keep up this rampage, across the galaxy, there won't be anybody left to rule over. It doesn't make sense!
Black Narcissus: For someone of your reputation, Doctor, you have a surprising lack of vision.
Dr. Eggman: I'm beginning to suspect that you Metarex have completely lost your minds!
Black Narcissus: Perhaps, Doctor. But the question is: What are you going to do about it? The time has come for you to choose sides. Will you join our quest to transform the galaxy?
[Eggman grins.]
Black Narcissus: Or will you fight against us with Sonic?

[Scene Change: The Croc Canteen, night]

[The Chaotix' detective office converted into a canteen. Aliens of all kinds are seated at various tables with drinks. Charmy flies by with several drinks.]
Charmy: Welcome to Vector's Juice Bar! We put the squeeze on your thirst!
[Espio is washing glasses, while Vector is playing the piano.]
Vector: [To the viewer] I bet you didn't know I'm such a musical maestro, didn't ya? You shouldn't be surprised. I'm more than just a pretty face. As a croc, I'm naturally swamped with talent! But you're probably wonderin' why I'm playin piano instead of doin' detective work. It all started after the boys and me said adios to the crew of the Blue Typhoon...

[Scene Change: The Chaotix' spaceship - Flashback]

[The spaceship is cruising through space. Espio is reading directions.]
Espio: Okay, Vector, make a right just before the next star system.
[They drive past a traffic light in space.]
Vector: Space travel sure can be boring. Somebody oughta build a rest stop in this part of the galaxy so you can get out and stretch your legs.
Charmy: Oh boy! I wish we could stop and grab a bite to eat!
Espio: There aren't any rest stops listed here.
Vector: Let's see... Hm...
[Vector sees a wormhole up ahead. This is the Galaxy Corridor.]
Vector: Maybe we'll find one over there.
[Espio looks at the map again.]
Espio: I don't see that place on the map.
Charmy: Let's check it out!
Vector: All rightie! After all, investigating unknown mysteries is part of a detective's job!
Charmy: Go for it, Vector!
[They feel the warping effects of the entrance to the Galaxy Corridor.]
Vector: What the...?
Espio: It's some kind of gravity field.
Charmy: Boy, is it totally cool!

[Scene Change: The Croc Canteen]

Vector: So, we ended up crash-landing on this planet. Huh?
[He sees Charmy talking with a customer.]
Customer: Send me a bill and I'll pay it next month.
Charmy: Well, I, uh...
Vector: Somethin' wrong?
[The customer blushes.]
Charmy: This clown says he's gonna pay us later.
Vector: Later?
Customer: Next week, maybe.
[Vector wraps his arm around the customer.]
Vector: Listen, pal, the policy in this establishment is when you pig out, you have to pay up!
Charmy: What are you gonna do, Vector?
Vector: Let's see... I could try to squeeze the money out of him...
Customer: I know! What if I pay you tomorrow?
Vector: No way! It's cash or bash if you get my drift!
[Later, the customer finally pays Charmy.]
Customer: That's everything I owe.
[He leaves embarrassed.]
Charmy: Come back soon!
Espio: We won't be getting rich at this rate, Vector.
Vector: We just need to earn enough dough to pay for ship repairs. Then we can be on our way.
[They hear the door open.]
Charmy: Hi! What can we get ya?
[They see Eggman, Decoe, and Bocoe standing in the doorway. Decoe and Bocoe are holding posters.]
Vector: It's Eggman!
Dr. Eggman: Is that you, Vector?
Vector: What are you doin' here?
Dr. Eggman: I'm looking for someone.
Vector: Oh yeah?
[From out of nowhere, Vector pulls out a desk, a paper, a pen, and a pair of reading glasses.]
Vector: Now, I'll need a name or alias, so you'll have to give me a description, too.
[Eggman snaps his fingers, and Decoe unrolls a poster. To Vector's shock, it is a wanted poster for Chris, Cosmo, Amy, Cream, Knuckles, Tails, and Sonic.]
Vector: Huh? How come you're lookin' for Sonic?
Dr. Eggman: The Metarex would like to ask you a few questions.
[Decoe lifts the poster.]
Espio: They want to have a friendly chat, huh?
[Vector puts away his gear.]
Vector: Forget it, Eggman! You'd have to be a low-life to work for the Metarex!
Dr. Eggman: Check this out!
[Eggman reaches into his coat and pulls out a picture, which appears to be a cross between a spider, a skull, and a bomb.]
Vector: You wanna play cards?
Dr. Eggman: This happens to be my new business card. I guess you haven't heard the Metarex made me one of their top four commanders! What a simpleton. Hurry and get all those posters plastered up!
Bocoe: Sure thing, Doctor!
Decoe: Hm... This looks like a good spot.
[Decoe and Bocoe get to work putting the posters up. Vector waves his hands.]
Vector: Now hold on a second! I don't want my walls covered in wanted posters! Find someplace where they ain't gonna be an eyesore!
Bocoe: If you say so.
[Decoe crawls under a table.]
Decoe: With all the chewing gum under this table, I do not even need tape.
[As Decoe plasters the poster to the underside of the table, Eggman sits at the counter.]
Dr. Eggman: I'll have an ice-cold refreshing glass of water.
[Espio is still washing the dishes.]
Dr. Eggman: I said water!
[Espio turns off the water.]
Espio: Too late, Eggman. We just ran out.
Dr. Eggman: I wish you would dry up.
Decoe and Bocoe: We are done putting up the posters, Doctor.
Dr. Eggman: [Stands up] If you do see Sonic and his friends, contact me right away. Understand?
Vector: Sorry, Eggman, but I happen to be a crocodile, not a stool pigeon.
Dr. Eggman: [To Decoe and Bocoe] Let's ditch this dump.
Bocoe: Yes, Doctor.
Decoe: Where will we go next?
[The Chaotix watch them go.]
Charmy: What are you gonna do, Vector? Will you let Sonic know about this?
Vector: You betcha.

[Scene Change: The Croc Canteen - Upstairs]

[The Chaotix are upstairs with the Blue Typhoon's crew. Only Tails and Cosmo are absent. Sonic and Knuckles are at a table, eating.]
Vector: Eggman's putting up wanted posters?!
Cream: He's hunting us down like we're criminals!
Chris: This is bad news. If the Metarex find out we're hiding on this planet, They'll send a fleet after us. We won't have a chance.
Cheese: Chao chao.
Amy: We need to fix our ship and get out of here.
Vector: You guys can't go outside! One of the locals might turn you all in!
Sonic: Then I'll make sure none of 'em see me!
[A shot is shown of Sonic running around outside. The Metarex Troopers stationed outside glance at each other, confused.]
Knuckles: We need parts. Tails and Cosmo are waiting at the ship for them.

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Outside]

Tails: I wonder where Sonic and ther others are.
Cosmo: What if the Metarex found them?

[Scene Change: The Croc Canteen - Upstairs]

Sonic: I'll just dash to the store and buy the parts we need.
Vector: But when you pay at the register, they'll see your face!
[A shot of him zipping past a cashier repeatedly is shown.]
Cashier: [In the shot] Hey, this isn't the express lane, buddy!
Sonic: Okay, you're right. I can't do any shopping.
Chris: What are we gonna do? Without those parts, we'll be stuck here.
[The group spends a little time thinking.]
Vector: Why don't you let me buy the parts for ya?
[Chris, Amy, and Cream look surprised.]
Cream: Would you really?
Vector: Sure, I run errands all the time when I'm doin' undercover work.
[He pulls out a picture of himself shopping and walking a dog.]
Vector: As you can see, I don't just collar crooks.
Sonic: Uh... Sorry, but we've only got enough cash for the parts.
Vector: Aw, don't worry about my salary. I think you guys are A-okay, so I'll take an IOU.
Charmy: Then it's settled!
Amy: All right, then. Here's your shopping list.
[She pulls out a paper and a money purse.]

[Scene Change: A hardware store]

[Vector is shopping alone in the store. He glances at his list before seeing an item on the shelf.]
Vector: [To himself] This is one of the parts I need for my ship. [Frustrated] I'm shoppin' for Sonic! I ain't no crooked croc!
[He instead selects a few other items, and soon arrives at the checkout.]
Cashier: One power module, one gravity stabilizer, two quantum flux capacitors, one hyper hammer, three laser fusion units, one air pressure...
[Unbeknownst to him, a Metarex Trooper is spying on him.]
Metarex Trooper: [On radio] Come in, Commander.

[Scene Change: Pale Bayleaf's Battleship]

Pale Bayleaf: So, my instincts were correct. Sonic is hiding on that planet. When he fixes his ship and returns to space, I'll be waiting for him!
[His right eye twinkles.]

[Scene Change: The Croc Canteen - Outside]

[Sonic cautiously watches as Eggman, Decoe, and Bocoe stop outside the canteen.]
Decoe: We've put up wanted posters all around town.
Bocoe: It was exhausing...
[Eggman stares intently at the window.]
Decoe: Is there something wrong, Doctor?
Dr. Eggman: It's none of your business. Let's go!
Decoe: Roger!
Bocoe: Whatever.
[They are about to leave, but Eggman stops and stares at the window for a long period of time before leaving.]

[Scene Change: The Croc Canteen - Upstairs]

[Sonic wipes his brow.]
Sonic: For a second there, I thought he saw me.
[They hear voices downstairs.]
Charmy: [Off-screen] How'd it go, Vector?
Vector: [Off-screen] No problem.
[The others crawl out from under the table.]
Knuckles: All right, let's go help Vector unload the parts.
[Chris nods.]
Cheese: Chao!

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Outside]

Tails: Maybe they did run into trouble.
Cosmo: It must be the Metarex.

[Scene Change: The Croc Canteen - Upstairs]

Knuckles: [Voiceover] These... parts are heavy!
Chris: [Voiceover] Look out!
Cheese: [Voiceover] Chao!
[There is a huge thump as all the parts are put on the floor upstairs. Chris helps to bring the last part upstairs.]
Chris: This is the last part.
Amy: Let's call Tails to pick this up in the X-Tornado.
Cheese: Chao.
[Amy opens her communicator, but Chris stops her.]
Chris: Amy! They could be monitoring our communications.
Amy: Huh? What are you saying? You expect us to carry the parts there?
[Vector crawls up top.]
Vector: I can take you guys over.
Sonic: Oh, really?
Vector: Sure! I'm a warm-hearted reptile!

[Scene Change: The Chaotix' spaceship]

[The Croc Canteen is marked closed. Everyone is inside the Chaotix' spaceship.]
Vector: Okay, hang on, everybody!
Dr. Eggman: [Over radio] Vector, I'm in your restaurant. We need to talk.
Chris: That figures.
Amy: What's Eggman doing here? [Shakes fist] I'd like to give him a piece of my mind and fist!
Vector: Don't worry; I'll go show Dr. Egghead the exit! [Stands up] Be right back.

[Scene Change: The Croc Canteen]

[Vector finds Eggman sitting alone inside the canteen]
Vector: I already told you I'm not gonna help ya, Eggman!
Dr. Eggman: If you're this rude to all your customers, it's no wonder this place is empty.

[Scene Change: The Chaotix' spaceship]

Amy: What does he want, anyway?
Chris: Eggman's a pain.

[Scene Change: The Croc Canteen]

Vector: We're closed up for the night!
Dr. Eggman: I'm not leaving this stool.
Vector: Oh, really?
Dr. Eggman: I came here to celebrate, and that's exactly what I'm going to do, Vector.
Vector: Celebrate what?
Dr. Eggman: Before this night is over, I'm going to be rid of Sonic the Hedgehog once and for all. The Metarex sent me to track down Sonic, and now I've figured out exactly where he's hiding. [Chuckles] Sonic doesn't suspect anything, so he won't stand a chance when the Metarex attack.

[Scene Change: The Chaotix' spaceship]

Knuckles: So Eggman is setting us up!
Cream: This is bad! What do we do, Sonic?
[Sonic grins a toothy grin, confusing the others.]

[Scene Change: The Croc Canteen]

[After a moment's hesitation, seeing Eggman is not about to leave, Vector pours a drink for Eggman.]
Vector: How about some juice?
[Eggman grins.]

[Scene Change: The Chaotix' spaceship]

Amy: Huh? No way!
Knuckles: [Hands on hips] Vector was supposed to get rid of Eggman!
Chris: Yeah, what's he letting him hang around for?
Sonic: Dr. Eggman doesn't get to defeat us very often, so he really deserves to enjoy it this time!
[The others are astonished at Sonic's behavior.]

[Scene Change: The Croc Canteen]

[Eggman sips his beverage.]
Dr. Eggman: Let me tell you, those Metarex aren't kidding around. They've had enough of Sonic and his friends, and this time they're planning to pull out all the stops to make sure he's destroyed once and for all.
Vector: Really? What are they gonna do?
Dr. Eggman: It's a secret. Let's just say it'll involve a whole fleet of ships attacking the Blue Typhoon. I almost wish I could give Sonic some kind of warning. I'm sure he's much rather be beaten by me than by those miserable Metarex. [Laughs]

[Scene Change: The Chaotix' spaceship]

Amy: [Hands on hips] Eggman's got some ego!
Cream: [Hands on hips] I wish I could go in there and tell him off!
[Sonic relishes the conversation, not able to get enough.]

[Scene Change: The Croc Canteen]

Dr. Eggman: [Stands up] I'll be shoving off now.
Vector: I don't ever wanna see you in here again, Eggman!
Dr. Eggman: That's the best news I've had all day.
[He leaves. But as he nears the door, he receives a radio call.]
Bokkun: [Over radio] Come in, Doctor!
Dr. Eggman: [On radio] What now?

[Scene Change: The Crimson Egg]

Bokkun: [On radio] I thought you should know I just spotted Bayleaf's fleet!

[Scene Change: The Croc Canteen]

Dr. Eggman: [On radio] All right. Keep me posted. [Off radio] Oh well. I guess Sonic's a goner. That fleet will stay in orbit around the planet waiting for the Blue Typhoon to take off so they can destroy it. Yes, the second the Metarex spot that ship, it will be blown into a billion bits! There won't be any escape for Sonic the Hedgehog this time!
[He leaves.]
Vector: Huh. He could use an acting coach.

[Scene Change: The Chaotix' spaceship]

Chris: We can't leave the planet now even if we fixed the ship!
Amy: But if we stay here, sooner or later they'll track us down and attack us anyway.
Knuckles: [To himself] We're trapped... and we can't put up a fight! Our laser cannons aren't powerful enough to take on an entire fleet!
Sonic: [To himself; grinning] Thanks for the tipoff, Eggman.

[Scene Change: Pale Bayleaf's Battleship]

Pale Bayleaf: I'm waiting for you, Sonic!

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Bridge]

[The Chaotix' spaceship is parked next to the Blue Typhoon.]
Cosmo: [Voiceover] Do you know how many ships the Metarex have in their fleet?
Knuckles: 'Fraid not.
Amy: [Waves arms] Why don't you just use the scopes?
Tails: They're not working. I just disconnected all the scopes to make repairs, and it'll take hours to reconnect them.
Cosmo: What are the options?
Sonic: If we just sit around here, we won't have any chance of getting away.
Cosmo: What should we do?
Sonic: We have to repair our ship and take on that fleet. [To the Chaotix] You wanna join us?
[They wave their hands in protest.]
Vector: No offense, Sonic, but we'd rather play it safe than be sorry.

[Scene Change: Pale Bayleaf's Battleship]

[Pale Bayleaf is playing chess with a robot. A Metarex Trooper approaches.]
Metarex Trooper: Sir, a ship has just left the planet.
Pale Bayleaf: Put it up on the viewscreen.
Metarex Trooper: Roger.
[As the chess-playing robot rolls away, Bayleaf studies the screen to see that the Blue Typhoon is leaving the planet.]
Pale Bayleaf: [Stands up] That's the Blue Typhoon! ... Deploy cannons!
[The ship's cannons are trained on the Typhoon.]
Pale Bayleaf: Fire!
[The battleship fires at the Typhoon. Meanwhile, the Chaotix' spaceship is rolling along the moon's surface. An explosion bursts far above it.]
Pale Bayleaf: I've done it! I've defeated Sonic the Hedgehog! We must leave immediately to deliver the good news to Dark Oak in person!

[Scene Change: The Croc Canteen]

[The canteen is open. Charmy flies by with more beverages.]
Charmy: Comin' right up!
[It is business as usual, with Espio washing glasses and Vector playing the piano. Eggman enters. He appears beaten up, and his right arm is in a sling. Vector sweatdrops when he sees him.]
Dr. Eggman: Play it again, Vector.
Vector: I thought I told you to never come back here.
Dr. Eggman: Believe me, I didn't want to come back, but I didn't have anyplace else to go.
[He sits at the counter.]
Dr. Eggman: I'll have a prune juice and a soft-boiled egg.
Espio: Well, Vector?
[Vector looks up briefly before returning to his piano playing.]
Vector: Give him what he wants.
Espio: Are you sure?
[Espio gets out a bottle and a glass.]
Vector: Yeah, and it's all on the house, too.
[Espio shrugs and pours Eggman's beverage, also setting a whole, uncracked egg before him. Eggman cracks the egg into the beverage.]
Dr. Eggman: Here's to my best enemy.
[He downs the drink.]

[Scene Change: The planet]

[The Typhoon is damaged on the planet's surface. The ground opens up to reveal the Crimson Egg. Decoe, Bocoe, and Bokkun are making repairs on it.]
Bocoe: Why did we have to protect Sonic?
Decoe: Yeah, I thought Dr. Eggman wanted to see him destroyed.
Bokkun: If you ask me, the doc's startin' to go soft... in the head.

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Bridge]

[The Blue Typhoon flies freely into space.]
Knuckles: [Voiceover] I thought there was supposed to be a Metarex fleet waiting for us! But there isn't even a single ship here!
Amy: We should have suspected all along it was a lie. I guess Eggman was just trying to psych us out.
Chris: I'm glad he lied. If there was a fleet here, we'd be in trouble. Wouldn't we, Sonic?

[Scene Change: The Croc Canteen]

[Eggman grins. So does Vector.]

[Scene Change: The Blue Typhoon - Bridge]

Sonic: [To himself] Thanks, Doctor. You're not such a bad egg after all.
[The episode ends and the credits roll]
