[Scene: Tails' Lab, day]
- [Tails is working on an invention, and standing beside him is D-Fekt, a former Eggman robot.]
- Tails: Shifting spanner. [D-Fekt grabs it using his telekinesis and gives it to Tails.] Why did Eggman ever get rid of you? You're the greatest helper I've ever had! [Hearts flow around D-Fekt's head, showing his affection.] Hand me that hammer. [D-Fekt telekinetically gives Tails the hammer, and Tails begins pounding. But the force from doing so causes one of the inventions on a shelf above him to shake and approach the shelf's edge. D-Fekt tries to warn Tails, but cannot verbally warn him.] What's the matter? Did Timmy fall down a well? [The device falls onto Tails' head and breaks.] Why didn't you catch it using your powers? [The hearts around D-Fekt break, showing guilt and regret.] Don't worry about it. I'll clean this up while you run into town and get me the parts for a new one. [D-Fekt salutes Tails.]
[Scene Change: Hedgehog Village, Day]
- [D-Fekt arrives at Male Fennec's shop. He tries to tell him about the incident, but Male Fennec doesn't understand D-Fekt's nonverbal language, either.]
- Male Fennec: What is it, boy? Did Timmy fall down a well? [D-Fekt continues making strange hand motions.] I see; if you want to use the restroom, you have to buy something.
- Amy [offscreen] Hey, D-Fekt, what's up? [She walks onscreen with Sonic and Knuckles. D-Fekt tries to tell them as well, but none of them understand him.]
- Knuckles: He's either looking for a loaf of bread or a penguin wearing a top hat. I'm leaning toward penguin. [D-Fekt continues his strange motions.]
- Sonic: No, no; uh, it's a book. It's a movie! Oh, it's a--it's a movie based on a book! [D-Fekt jumps up and down in frustration.]
[Scene Change: Tails' Lab, day]
- [A bunch of parts are dropped behind Tails by Sonic, Amy, and Knuckles.]
- Tails: What's all this? I just sent D-Fekt out to get parts for a new Trans-seismic Marco Accelerator.
- Sonic: This would've been a whole lot easier if D-Fekt could just talk.
- Tails: Maybe I could install a voice chip. I know I have one around here somewhere.
- Amy: You had a voice chip the whole time? Why didn't you install it earlier?
- Tails: Guess I needed an inciting incident.
- [Later, Tails installs the voice chip into D-Fekt.]
- Tails: That should do it; say something.
- D-Fekt: What should I say? I want my first voice to be meaningful, and I... [depressed] I already blew it, didn't I?
- Sonic: It's okay, you're new at this.
- D-Fekt: Finally, I can express complex thoughts and emotions. For example, I hate being a lab assistant. I mean, uh, Tails is great, but I want to find my true purpose: something that will give my life meaning.
[Scene Change: Village Center, day.]
- [D-Fekt is working for the Ice Cream Vendor.]
- D-Fekt: Ice cream, I've got ice cream here.
- [Child Monkey approaches.]
- Child Monkey: Vanilla, please.
- [D-Fekt uses his magnets to serve Child Monkey vanilla ice cream. Child Monkey catches the ice cream and laughs joyfully.]
- Ice Cream Vendor: D-Fekt, you're really making a difference.
- [The Ice Cream Vendor gives him a thumbs up. More villagers approach.]
- Leroy: Chocolate.
- Lady Goat: Pist-aaaaa-chio.
- Old Monkey: Something I can eat without my teeth hidden.
- [D-Fekt uses his magnets to pull ice cream and cones out of the ice cream cart, but accidentally splatters the all the ice cream on the villagers faces.]
- Willy: Hey come on guys let's make like a banana split and leave.
- [The villagers walk away.]
- Ice Cream Vendor: [To D-Fekt] You're fired!
[Scene Change: Gym, day.]
- Knuckles: Don't take it to hard. Not everyone built for the high pressure world street side food carts. That's why I got you a new gig as a trainer at my gym. The key is to be encouraging and firm.
- [D-Fekt is trying to help Dave lift weights. Dave accidentally hits his stomach with the weight he is trying to lift.]
- D-Fekt: May I suggest you try harder. I hope that was firm enough.
- Dave: Help me.
- [D-Fekt uses his magnets to help Dave, who sighs in relief but accidentally sends him flying to Tummy Thunder and hits him.]
- Tommy Thunder: Watch how you treat Tommy Thunder, you computerized clog.
[Scene Change: Village Center, night.]
- [Comedy Chimp is on a stage while Team Sonic and other villagers are sitting down with tables and watching.]
- Comedy Chimp: Never liked that masseuse he always rubbed me the wrong way. Hah! Let's keep this open mic night moving with the comedy stylings of D-Fekt.
- [D-Fekt goes on stage. Everybody claps while Team Sonic cheer.]
- D-Fekt: So you ever notice how double-a batteries come in packs of four but remote controls come in packs of one? What's the deal with dual-core processors?
- Eggman: They're an outdated technology just like you.
- [Everybody but Team Sonic laughs.]
- Comedy Chimp: What a loser.
- [D-Fekt walks away depressingly. Amy follows him.]
- D-Fekt: [To Amy] I'm a failure even my own creator thinks I'm an embarrassment.
- Amy: Don't take it personally Eggman's mean to all his rejected robots.
- D-Fekt: There are other rejected robots?
[Scene Change: Cubot prototype's valley, day.]
- [Team Sonic and D-Fekt arrive.]
- Amy: [To D-Fekt] These robots are rejects just like you.
- [Hat Cubot and Green Cubot hit each other with a branch and laugh.]
- Amy: Well, maybe not just like you.
- [Hat Cubot and Green Cubot hit each other with a stick and laugh again. Cutebot comes out of her cave as D-Fekt falls in love with her.]
- Sonic: Cubots this is D-Fekt. D-Fekt these are the Cubots. So guys how's life here treating you?
- Hat Cubot: Oh great. Uh wait I not great. Now that FriendBot's in Roboken, we're totally unprotected.
- D-Fekt: Well then today is your lucky day.
- Hat Cubot: You mean I found a new hat while I was walking through the forest.
- [Cutebot approaches D-Fekt.]
- D-Fekt: No, you're lucky because I'm now here to protect you.
- [The Cubot Prototypes cheer joyfully.]
- D-Fekt: [To Cutebot] Especially you.
- [Cutebot sighs lovingly.]
- Sonic: Well have fun assimilating.
- [Team Sonic walks away.]
- D-Fekt: So, why do you guys need protecting?
- Bowtie Cubot: Eggman's afraid we'll rebel againts him and not that we could launch a rebellion. He's got super weapons and what do we have.
- Patch Cubot: We have a rock. Now where did I put it? Huh, we guess we don't have a rock.
- D-Fekt: Well now you've got me.
- [D-Fekt uses his magnets to lift a rock.]
- Cutebot: Wow, he made the ground go down.
- D-Fekt: Robot brethren, no longer shall our kind live in fear. I've been looking for meaning in my life and I've finallyh found it. I am going to lead the rebellion againts your creator, Doctor Eggman!
- [The Cubot Prototypes take out pitch forks and cheer.]
