This is the transcript from the Sonic Boom episode, "Knuck Knuck! Who's Here?".

[Scene: Seaside Island, day.]

[Team Sonic are engaged in a battle against Eggman's Badniks. A Bee Bot fires a laser blast at Tails just as Team Sonic splits up, but he bats it away with his wrench, scoring a direct hit and destroying the Bee Bot that fired it. Eggman appears in the Egg Mobile]
Dr. Eggman: Hey! No backsies!
[As another Bee Bot fires a laser blast, Amy whacks it with her hammer, turning it into pieces. A Ball Bot bounces towards Sticks, but she uses a net to contain it. She then swings the net, throwing the Ball Bots away. Sonic spin attacks a group of Crab Bots.]
Sonic: Strike!
Knuckles: Sonic! [Runs towards Sonic] How about a lift?
[Sonic deploys an Enerbeam. He and Knuckles grab the ends. Sonic spins Knuckles around and lets him go. Knuckles flies directly through a group of Motobugs.]
Knuckles: Next time, look where you're going!
[Suddenly, Knuckles bangs his head into a boulder, knocking him unconscious as he falls to the ground.]
Amy: Knuckles! We better wrap this one up.
[Sonic Homing Attacks three more robots before returning back. Team Sonic stare at Eggman.]
Dr. Eggman: Well. My evening's just opened up. Maybe I'll check out that new falafel place. I have a coupon for unlimited hummus. So long, losers!
[Eggman flees while the rest of Team Sonic check on Knuckles, who rolls on his back, groaning.]

[Scene Change: Sonic's Shack, day.]

[Knuckles awakens in Sonic's hammock, with Sonic, Tails, Amy and Sticks standing around him.]
Knuckles: Whoa. Where am I?
Amy: You're in Sonic's Shack.
Knuckles: Oh cool. Who's Sonic?
Tails: I'm afraid that blow to the head must have given Knuckles amnesia.
Sonic: Pft. You mean like in hacky sitcoms?
Tails: No. [Pauses] But just in case, we should take him to a familiar place to refresh his memory, like in hacky sitcoms.

[Scene Change: Seaside Island, beach, day.]

Amy: Your name is Knuckles. You're an echidna from Angel Island, and you're the last of your kind.
Sticks: You love lifting heavy stuff. You're the strongest one here.
Knuckles: [Looks at Sonic] Clearly.
[Sonic groans.]
Tails: Try lifting some weights. Maybe that'll jog your memory.
[Knuckles lifts up his weight.]
Knuckles: I'm still not remembering anything.
[Sticks screams. This gives Knuckles a fright, causing him to toss the weight up in the air. The weight lands on Knuckles injured head, knocking him out cold again.]
Sonic: Sticks, what the heck?!
Sticks: Everyone knows the best way to cure somebody of amnesia is to scare them.
Amy: [Frowning] That's hiccups.
Sticks: Well, no harm, no foul.
Knuckles: [Hurt] Whoa. What happened?
Sonic: You're awake. [Shows Knuckles two fingers] How many fingers am I holding up?
Knuckles: Oho Sonic. You know I can't count past three.
Amy: Just to be safe, why don't you tell us who you are and what you remember about yourself.
Knuckles: I'm Knuckles the Echidna. I'm from Angel Island. I'm the beloved leader of this group, and... [Glumly] the last of my kind.
[Knuckles blows the seeds on a dandelion away as the background turns a purplish dark and the wind plows past him. The scenery then returns to normal.]
Tails: Why so glum? You always knew you were the last of your kind.
Knuckles: Yeah, but suffering from head trauma really got me thinking clearly for the first time. [Upset] Until I find a family, I'm all alone in this world.

[Scene Change: Village Center, day.]

[Knuckles knocks on the door. The Warthog Male opens it, frowning at Knuckles, who is holding a card and a suitcase.]
Knuckles: [Reads a card] Greetings, good sir or madam. My name is Knuckles and I am the last of my...
[The Warthog Male abruptly shuts the door.]

[Scene Change: Village Center, day.]

Knuckles: For only pennies a day, you too can sponsor an echidna just like...
[Another door closes in front of him]

[Scene Change: Village Center, day.]

Knuckles: [Wailing outside the house] I just wanna be loved! Is that so wrong?
Warthog Male: Maybe you should try another house.

[Scene Change: Village Center, day.]

[The Child Monkey closes his doors in front of Knuckles, making Knuckles sad.]

[Scene Change: Village Center, day.]

[The Rabbit Girl closes her doors in front of Knuckles.]

[Scene Change: Village Center, day.]

[The Fennec Male closes his doors in front of a smiling Knuckles.]

[Scene Change: Village Center, day.]

[Knuckles knocks on Mrs. Vandersnout's door. She opens it.]
Knuckles: Hey, can I live with you? No? Okay, I understand. [Walks away]
Mrs. Vandersnout: Wait! I'll take you in. I could use a strapping young man like you to help around the house.
Knuckles: [Excited] Unpaid manual labor is just as good as unconditional love. I'm in!
[Knuckles walks through the door. Looking around the room, he picks up a photo. Mrs. Vandersnout takes it from Knuckles.]
Mrs. Vandersnout: That's my late husband. Oh how he loved taking old-timey photos in that kiosk at the mall.
[Knuckles wants to sit on the sofa, but she stops him.]
Mrs. Vandersnout: Stop! The furniture is only for company.
Knuckles: But I thought I was company.
Mrs. Vandersnout: Well, aren't you sassy for a houseboy?

[Scene Change: Village Center, day.]

[Mrs. Vandersnout rides pulled rickshaw that Knuckles is pulling.]
Mrs. Vandersnout: Make haste, young man. We don't want to miss the Early Bird Special.
[Team Sonic watch Knuckles run by. Most of Team Sonic looks confused. Sonic shrugs.]

[Scene Change: Meh Burger, afternoon.]

Mrs. Vandersnout: It's so much better eating supper at 4:00 p.m. None of the usual riffraff.
Amy: Oh, hey Knuckles.
Mrs. Vandersnout: Ah! Riffraff?
Knuckles: Guys. Let me introduce you to my new grandmother: Mrs. Vandersnout.
[Mrs. Vandersnout hisses while protecting her purse.]
Tails: [Hesitantly] She seems... nice.
Knuckles: She sure is. I got to spend all day doing fun stuff like playing mahjong, writing angry letters to the newspaper, removing skeletons from her bird feeder.
Mrs. Vandersnout: Oh, look at the time. We need to head back if we want to be in bed by 5:30.
Knuckles: [Annoyed] Grandma, you're embarrassing me in front of my friends!
Mrs. Vandersnout: [Angrily] My house, my rules! If you don't like it, then I'll find a new house!
[Mrs. Vandersnout walks off, grabbing Dave the Intern around the neck with her cane.]
Dave: Hey! Can we swing by my mom's place to get my retainer?
Knuckles: I'll never forget all the good times we had together.
[The camera blurs, then reverts back to normal.]
Knuckles: That probably would've been a lot more impressive if we'd actually had any good times. Oh well. I can't let that stop me. [Clenching his fist] I have to find my family.

[Scene Change: Gogoba Village, day.]

Gogoba Chief: Welcome, Knuckles. The newest member of our tribal family. Sure, he's one more mouth to feed during this terrible famine, but that's okay.
[One Gogoba comes rushing in.]
Gogoba: [Panting] A boulder is blocking access to the well. I could move it, even though the weight will blow out my knees and I'll lose my athletic scholarship.
Knuckles: As the newest member of the family, I'll move the boulder!
[The Gogobas gasp in horror at Knuckles.]
Gogoba Chief: Your friendly and helpful demeanor is an insult to our humble shame-mongering culture. It's clear now, you'll never be one of us!
[Knuckles groans and walks away.]
Gogoba Chief: Oh sure, go on, leave us without any well water. We'll just die of thirst.
Knuckles: Fine. I'll move the boulder.
[Knuckles walks away.]

[Scene Change: Seaside Island, beach, day.]

[Knuckles is walking alone the beach with his suitcase in hand. He notices Stratford and Chumley playing in the sand, with Lady Walrus sitting on a sun bed reading. He walks over to her.]
Knuckles: Say. You look like well-adjusted folk. But hopefully I'm wrong, and you're actually the kind of people who'll take in a weird stranger as a member of your family.
Lady Walrus: Well, I always wanted a daughter.
Knuckles: I'm not a girl.
Lady Walrus: [Angrily] I said, I always wanted a daughter!

[Scene Change: Meh Burger, day.]

[Knuckles is wearing a dress and a hairbow while sitting with Lady Walrus and her children at their table. The rest of Team Sonic watch Knuckles from their table.]
Lady Walrus: Careful not to stain your brand-new dress, pumpkin.
Amy: Heartbreaking, isn't it.
Sonic: Yeah, floral print really draws attention to all the wrong areas.
Sticks: I say we hit him on the head again.
Stratford: Oh sweet. A Councilman McMeh toy.
Knuckles: Is that the one with pencil-pushing action? [Aggressively] Oh Gimme!
[Knuckles tries to snatch the toy from Stratford. The two fight over it.]
Knuckles: Let go!
Stratford: It's mine!
Knuckles: No it's not!
Stratford: It's...
Lady Walrus: This isn't working! I was expecting a daughter who is more ladylike.
Knuckles: [Panicking] I can be ladylike! Watch!
[Knuckles looks at Lady Goat sitting alone.]
Knuckles: [Girly voice] I love your shoes!
[Lady Goat looks back at Knuckles.]
Knuckles: [Whispering to Lady Walrus] I don't really love her shoes. [Stands up excitedly] Huh? Huh?
[Lady Walrus shakes her head and walks off, with her children following. Knuckles sulks.]

[Scene Change: Village Center, night.]

[Knuckles is sitting alone on a bench. Charlie and Belinda walk over to him.]
Charlie: Well, well, well. If it isn't my arch nemesis Knuckles.
Knuckles: I'm sorry. Have we met?
Charlie: [Angrily] Of course we met! [Clenching his fist] You got me fired from two different jobs. You almost ended my marriage. You ruined my life!
Knuckles: Oh yeah. How you doing?
[Charlie growls at Knuckles.]
Knuckles: Hmm... I'm not doing so hot either. I just want a family. I can't find one.
Belinda: Maybe we can be your family.
Charlie: [Quietly] Honey, what are you doing? Why would you invite him into our home? He's a demon incarnate.
[They watch Knuckles petting a rabbit.]
Belinda: [Quietly] Well, I'll admit his shoes are awful, but don't you get it? The ultimate revenge would be to prey on his vulnerabilities. First, we welcome him into our family. Then, we turn him to the side of evil.
[Charlie and Belinda laugh evilly. Knuckles joins in but they stop. He wraps his arms around the two.]
Knuckles: There's one thing I learned from my time as teenage walrus girl. It's you gotta go along to get along.
[A Montage plays in black and white. Knuckles, Charlie and Belinda fly their kites. They then watch Comedy Chimp with Knuckles and Belinda throwing some popcorn. They all laugh at each other. The next scene shows Knuckles setting the barbecue on fire. Charlie blows out the fire with the extinguisher. They laugh at themselves. Afterwards, Knuckles takes a toy from the table. Charlie tries to grab it back but Belinda holds him back to his seat.]

[Scene Change: Village Center, day.]

[Knuckles is strolling along with a bag of food whistling. Sonic appears and walk up to him.]
Sonic: Hey, Knuckles. What's up?
Knuckles: Oh just picking up dinner for my family. Went to that new falafel place. It got stellar reviews on Eggman's food blog. Yeah, but enough chitchat. Charlie and Belinda are waiting.
Sonic: Charlie and Belinda?! But they're villains! They tried to destroy you.
Knuckles: [Angrily] How dare you use facts to besmirch my family! [Upset] A family who's loved and taken care of me for the past 22 and a half hours. You're a heartless monster!
[Knuckles breaks down crying, drops the bag and runs away.]

[Scene Change: Charlie and Belinda's house.]

[Belinda is watering a plant and Charlie is ready the newspaper. Knuckles walks in crying and covers his eyes on a pillow.]
Belinda: Knuckles, dear. What's wrong?
Knuckles: [Sobbing] Sonic. He said you guys were vi-vi-v-villains!
Belinda: I think it's time for the talk.
[Knuckles sits on Charlie's lap. A loud snap is heard.]
Charlie: You see, we are villains. But that doesn't make us bad people.
Belinda: Well, technically it does. But we took you in when no one else would. And if you want to continue being part of this family, then you'll have to be a villain too.
[Knuckles blinks and sheds a tear.]

[Scene Change: Village Center, day.]

[Sonic, Tails, Amy and Sticks are walking around the Village Center.]
Sonic: Ugh... If I never eat baba ghanoush again, it'll be too soon.
[Sonic, Tails, Amy and Sticks get a fright and jump out of the way as lasers are fired at the ground. They look up and notice Charlie in his Mech Suit and Knuckles. Charlie roars with evil laughter.]
Knuckles: Sorry guys. Nothing personal. But family comes first!
Belinda: Now Knuckles, be a good boy and... [Shrieking] Thrash 'em! Go for the jugular!
[Knuckles unleashes the ground pound at Team Sonic. They all jump out of the way. He tries to ground pound Amy, but she dodges. He tries to ground pound Sonic, but he dodges the attack as well. Sticks flips over onto the rock and back to the ground when Knuckles tries to ground pound her. Tails walks up to him from behind.]
Tails: Hey! Quit it!
[Charlie's Mech suit fires lasers at Tails, but he dodges. Charlie roars and fires more lasers at Amy. She unleashes her hammer and deflects the laser shot back at him. Charlie ducks down and dodges it. Suddenly, he gets trapped in a net that Sticks has thrown, and falls to the ground. The rest of Team Sonic gather around and watch Charlie, only to get knocked away by Knuckles' ground pound. Knuckles, retreating back to Charlie's Mech Suit, throws the net away and pulls the suit up. Sonic gets up and Homing Attacks the mech suit, but Knuckles gets in his away. Sonic avoids contact with Knuckles by turning away.]
Sonic: Out of the way Knux! I'm not gonna fight you!
Belinda: They won't fight Knuckles. [Shrieking at Charlie] Use him as a human shield!
[Charlie hides behind Knuckles, laughing evilly and uncontrollably firing lasers.]
Knuckles: It's a good thing that after a day and a half together I'm securing your unconditional love for me, or I might take this the wrong way.
[The rest of Team Sonic dodge Charlie's lasers. Sonic tries a Homing Attack to hit the side of Charlie's Mech Suit, but Charlie spots it, grips Knuckles, and holds him in front of Sonic. Sonic turns away and stands next to Amy, Tails and Sticks.]
Knuckles: Ow! Charlie, I'm not sure that this is the how families treat each other.
Charlie: You imbecile! We're not family. Are you so dense you don't even know when someone is taking advantage of you?
Knuckles: Hmm... This really gives me something to think about. But I don't like thinking, I like action!
[Knuckles throws Charlie's Mech suit, slamming it to the ground. Amy pounds it with her hammer, Sticks covers it with her net and Sonic Homing Attacks it three times.]
Charlie: Kids. You try and teach him right from wrong and they just disappoint you... By picking right.
[Belinda takes Charlie off his mech suit and they both run off.]
Sonic: Glad to have you back, Knuckles.
Knuckles: Sorry guys. I now realize I had a family all along: Charlie and Belinda. No, wait. I know this. It's on the tip of my tongue. [Sticks his tongue out] What does it say?
Amy: We're your family Knuckles.
[The five members of Team Sonic hug each other.]
Old Monkey: I wish I had a family like that. Maybe someday someone will knock on my door. Oh, I'd take them in and treat them as my own. Oh well... That never happens.
[While the Old Monkey walks away from the camera, Dave is seen pulling Mrs. Vandersnout's rickshaw.]
