This is the transcript of the Sonic X episode, "Sonic's Big Break".

Narrator: Last time on Sonic X, a case of mistaken identity set our speedy hero on the run. His trouble doubled when a robber ripped off an Emerald, and cameras showed a hedgehog making the heist. As the Project Shadow investigation continued, Sonic made a shocking discovery. Sonic and Shadow went head-to-head in a brutal battle with a chaotic finish. Trapped by government forces, Sonic surrendered and was taken to Prison Island. Will his friends find a way to free him? Or will Sonic be locked away forever? Find out next on Sonic X!
[Sonic is down after his skirmish with Shadow. He vanishes as the police arrive. Soon Sonic is led away in handcuffs. Soon Sonic is in his underwater cell.]

[Scene: Prison Island]

[Sonic is seen relaxing in his cell. Security official Howard Watcher narrates as several shots of the island are shown, showcasing the various security gadgets.]
Howard: Sonic's in the underwater isolation cell. It's impossible to escape from there, and even if he could, where's he gonna go once he breaks out? Prison Island is surrounded by the sea. There's no land for miles, and everybody knows Sonic ain't no swimmer. We got guards keepin' lookout in the towers twenty-four hours a day, and the laser alarms will go off the second they detect the slightest movement. The entire prison is wired with surveillance cameras, metal detectors, and sound monitors. Not even a fly could escape from here! This place was built to hold the toughest crooks in the world, but in all the years that Prison Island's been in business, there hasn't been one single solitary breakout! Hope Sonic likes it here, 'cause he ain't leavin'!
[He laughs, then points to the image of Sonic on the screen.]
Howard: Don't think of pullin' any funny stuff while I'm on duty, 'cause I got my eye on you, Sonic!
[He laughs again.]
Security Guard: [To Himself] I'm sure Sonic is innocent, but there's nothing I can do to help him.

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Sonic's cell]

Sonic: Oh well. If I can't get outta here, I might as well kick back and relax.

[Scene Change: Tanaka's boat]

Tanaka: We are still quite far from Prison Island, but we can't take this motorboat any closer because of their radar. Their security systems are so advanced that they would spot us long before we reach the coast, and if they do detect us, they well send out armed boats to intercept and arrest us.
Chris: So, what are we gonna do?
Tanaka: Luckily, I've thought of a way to thwart their system. It is high-tech, so we will fool it using my low-tech solution.
[His glasses shine. The boat deploys a swan boat.]
Tanaka: They'll be looking for motorboats, so this paddle boat will let us duck under their radar.
Chris: Hm...
[They board the swan boat and begin pedaling.]
Chris: I don't know about this, Mr. Tanaka. I feel kinda goofy.
Tanaka: We can make it. We just have to paddle faster.
[They pedal with all their might towards Prison Island.]

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Inside]

[Two security guards detect the swan boat moving erratically towards them.]
Security Guard 1: Sir, somebody is heading toward the island.
Security Guard 2: Really?
Security Guard 1: It looks like a giant... duck, sir.
Security Guard 2: That's no bird. It's a boat. Somebody's trying to sneak onto the island. They think they've fooled us, but I'll make sure they're sunk before they reach land.
Security Guard 1: Do you really think a paddle boat poses that much of a threat?
Security Guard 2: Who knows? It's better to destroy 'em first and ask questions later.

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Outside]

[Eggman arrives in his Eggmobile and laughs. He presses a button which disrupts the TV screens' signals, turning them to static.]
Security Guards: (What?) (Whoa, what?) (Sound the alarm!) (We can't, sir.) (The system's going haywire!) (Call the cell blocks!) (They're jamming our communications!) (It's an attack!)
[Eggman laughs a victory laugh.]

[Scene Change: Eggman's base]

Decoe: He did it! He's back on Prison Island!
Bocoe: Dr. Eggman rules!
Decoe and Bocoe: Alright!
[They high-five.]

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Forest]

[Eggman is hovering idle with his hands clasped behind his head.]
Dr. Eggman: I wonder if I'm pushing my luck, breaking into the place a second time.
[His communicator screen activates.]
Decoe: Perhaps. The security on the island has been upgraded since your last visit. You must be careful. When they restore communications, they will send robots to stop your team.
Bocoe: Their robotic designs are greatly improved. With their new defenses, it will be almost impossible to enter that compound again.
Dr. Eggman: Well, nothing is going to stop me from breaking in and taking those Chaos Emeralds. Shadow said I need to obtain all seven Emeralds in order the Eclipse Cannon.
Decoe: But are you sure it's worth the risk, Doctor?
[Eggman grins.]
Dr. Eggman: [To himself] Once I get that cannon working, I'll be unstoppable!
[Shadow and Rouge arrive.]
Rouge: Okay, Eggy, fill me in.
Dr. Eggman: According to Rouge, the Chaos Emeralds are stored in a vault inside the compound. I must have them.
Rouge: No prob. Just leave it to me.
Decoe: Do not trust her!
Bocoe: She wants it for herself!
[Eggman shuts off the screen.]
Dr. Eggman: They get on my nerves. Let's get down to the nitty-gritty, shall we? In the first phase of my plan, I'll go around the island wreaking havoc and drawing the guards from their posts, clearing th way for you two to enter the compound. Then, Shadow moves in. He'll blow up the whole island by sneaking into the weapons center and setting off all the ammunition stored there with this miniature detonation device.
[Eggman tosses a time bomb to Shadow, who nods.]
Dr. Eggman: Meanwhile, Rouge will proceed to the warehouse where the Chaos Emeralds are locked away and remove them. We will then meet up at the rendezvous point and make our escape. We have exactly thirty minutes. If you run into trouble, you're on your own.
[Shadow and Rouge nod.]
Dr. Eggman: Let's go!
[The three take off. Soon Eggman fires several missiles at the facility. Various GUN robots emerge to attack Eggman, but he nimbly dodges their attacks and fires back in return.]
Dr. Eggman: Peekaboo!
[The X-Tornado flies into the vicinity.]
Tails: What's going on?
Amy: It looks like somebody's fighting.
Tails: We'd better get down there and find Sonic!
[The X-Tornado lands near Rouge and Shadow, and Amy throws herself at Shadow, thinking he is Sonic.]
Amy: Oh, Sonic! What a relief! I came her to rescue you, but you escaped all by yourself! ... Sonic?
[Realizing her mistake, and also seeing a smirking Rouge nearby, Amy cries out and lets go of Shadow.]
Amy: You're not Sonic! Who are you?
[The Eggmobile hovers in front of her.]
Dr. Eggman: None of your business. Now get lost.
Amy: Dr. Eggman!
[Tails is equally as surprised.]
Dr. Eggman: Shadow, Rouge, carry out your assignments!
[Eggman blows a hole in the door with a missile, and Rouge and Shadow enter the facility. Then he bears down on Amy, who takes a few steps back.]
Dr. Eggman: I'll take care of you...
Amy: Keep away!
Tails: Amy!
Tails: I can't rescue Sonic 'til I get Dr. Eggman out of the way.
Dr. Eggman: This will send Tails into a tailspin!
[He fires lasers and rockets at Tails, but he dodges them. Then Eggman finds himself at the front of the X-Tornado, trying to keep one step ahead of the craft. On the ground, Amy revalls the hedgehog she just met.]
Amy: [To herself] He looks almost exactly like Sonic. I wonder what he's doing here?
[She enters the facility.]
Amy: Don't worry, Sonic! I'll find you!

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Inside]

[An alarm sounds as Shadow searches for the ammunition warehouse.]
Dr. Eggman: [Flashback] Shadow will speed through the building and sabotage the weapons center.
[Elsewhere, Rouge flies around searching for Chaos Emeralds, even nimbly crossing a laser field.]
Dr. Eggman: [Flashback] Meanwhile, Rouge will sneak into the warehouse. Once she gets in, she will grab the Chaos Emeralds.
[She locates the red Chaos Emerald.]
Rouge: I can feel those Emeralds here. All I have to do is break into the vault and help myself.
[She locates the keypad.]
Rouge: Ah. Cracking the code will be a cinch.
[After pressing a few buttons on the keypad, the door opens, granting Rouge access to the Chaos Emerald.]

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Outside]

[Tanaka and Chris, having disembarked from the swan boat, are scaling the steep cliff. Suddenly there is an explosion above them as Tails and Eggman exchange fire.]
Dr. Eggman: Take this! ... He'll see. Tails can't outfox me!
[His communicator screen activates.]
Decoe: Hey, Dr. Eggman! Forget him! You have more important things to do!
Bocoe: Stay focused!
Dr. Eggman: I'll have to crush Tails another day.
[Eggman stops right in front of Tails, forcing him to stop in midair.]
Dr. Eggman: Now look, Tails. Just because I'm leaving doesn't mean you win. This only a time out, you hear me?! A time out!
[Eggman flies away. Tails blinks in surprise before landing in his original position in front of the hole the missile explosion made. He opens the cockpit and looks around.]
Tails: Amy! ... Where'd she go?
[It is revealed that Eggman never really left, as he flies back onto the island.]
Dr. Eggman: I have to see what Shadow and Rouge are up to.
[Meanwhile, Chris is now scaling the cliff alone. A flashback of last night comes to him.]
Sonic: [Flashback] Don't worry. I'll be out before you know it, buddy.
Chris: Sonic...

[Scene Change: Prison Island - inside]

[It is revealed that Rouge has collected both the red and cyan Chaos Emeralds, and Shadow has installed the time bomb, which is labeled Eggman Bombom.]
Shadow: [On radio] Doctor, the detonator is ready to go, but I need to know how long to set the timer for.
Dr. Eggman: [Over radio] Good work, Shadow. You can set the detonator to go off at exactly fifteen minutes. Will that be enough time for you, Rouge?
Rouge: [On radio] I can be out of here in five minutes easy.
Dr. Eggman: [Over radio] All right, then. Set the detonator for ten minutes.
Shadow: [On radio] Right, Doctor.
[He sets the bomb for ten minutes and leaves.]

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Sonic's Cell]

[Sonic looks up in surprise to see Amy in the distance. A tube extends from the facility to Sonic's cell, bring Amy with it. Soon she is right outside his cell.]
Amy: Bet you're surprised to see me! I rushed here to rescue you from this awful island. You ready?

[Scene Change: Prison Island - inside]

Intercom: Intruder alert! Intruder alert!
[The facility goes on lockdown, shutting all its doors.]
Intercom: Gold Beetle, go bonk those bozos!
[Several new-and-improved GUN Beetles teleport away.]
Intercom: Flying Dog, sniff 'em out!
[The robot called Flying Dog moves out.]
Howard: [Snickers] Flying Dog is the ultimate security robot, specially designed to fetch any trespasser. Flying Dog will keep hounding its prey until it's cornered, and then it pounces, decimating its foe with rabid ferocity!
Security Guard: Not every trespasser is dangerous, you know.
Howard: My motto is "Take no prisoners; we have too many inmates here already." [Laughs]

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Sonic's Cell]

[Amy brings out her Piko Piko Hammer.]
Amy: I'll open your cell now. You'd better stand back, Sonic; I wouldn't want you to get injured.
Sonic: I don't know, Amy. These bars are pretty strong.
Amy: Well, I happen to be pretty and strong too.
[A Gold Beetle materializes behind Amy.]
Sonic: Amy! Look out!
[Amy turns around and hammers the robot to pieces.]
Amy: Don't you know it's rude to show up someplace uninvited?! And don't bother me when I'm trying to rescue Sonic!
Sonic: Amy, that was great!
Amy: Now I'm gonna bash down the bars of your cell, Sonic.
Sonic: No, Amy! You can't do that!
Amy: Don't worry, Sonic. My feelings for you will give me the strength to free you.
Sonic: But Amy, I let them drag me to Prison Island on purpose so that I could learn something about my lookalike.
Amy: Your lookalike?
[She recalls Shadow.]
Amy: You mean that creepy hedgehog I thought was you?
Sonic: Did you see him? Do you know where he is now, Amy?
Amy: You really want to know?
Sonic: Yes, I do.
Amy: If I tell you, will you finally take me out to something fun?
Sonic: I don't have to.
Amy: Hmph. Why not?
Sonic: What could be more fun than this?
Amy: My idea of fun is more like going out to have a pizza or seeing a movie together. But, since I like you, I'll tell you that when Tails and I landed here, we saw a red and black hedgehog near the entrance being ordered around by Eggman.
Sonic: [Arms folded] I should have known that Eggman would be involved in this mess.
[Amy notices the markings in the wall.]
Amy: Have you been doing math on your wall?
Sonic: That was there before. Watch out, here I come!
[Sonic breaks out of the cell.]
Sonic: I'm gonna need you to help hammer your way out of this prison, Amy.
Amy: Let's go!

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Inside]

[Three hits is all it takes for Amy to bring down the door.]
Sonic: Not bad, Amy.
[Amy giggles. Howard Watcher has detected the breakout.]
Howard: Sonic's out!
[An alarm sounds through the base.]

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Outside]

[Chris, who is still on the cliff, hears the alarm.]
Chris: Now what?
[But he remembers something Tanaka told him earlier.]
Tanaka: [Flashback] It is too dangerous. You stay here and I will find Sonic.
Chris: Sorry, Mr. Tanaka. I can't stay behind if Sonic's in danger.
[He continues scaling the cliff. Meanwhile, Sonic carries Amy outside through the hole, where they meet Tanaka and Tails.]
Tanaka: [Bows] I'm relieved to see you're safe, Sonic, and Mr. Chris will be too. Shall we go?
Amy: Hi Tanaka! Long time no see! How's everything going with Chris?
Tails: Can't we catch up on how are friends are doing later, Amy?
Sonic: He's right. You guys get moving. I still have to track down my lookalike.
Amy: But I want to go with you!
[But Sonic already leaps out of sight.]

[Scene Change: Prison Island - inside]

[Rouge has uncovered a third Chaos Emerald, the purple one.]
Rouge: Lovely...
[Suddenly the Flying Dog appears in the doorway.]
Rouge: Hello there. I hope you didn't come to get my Emeralds back.
Flying Dog Pilot: Intruder located. Security units proceed to level 5. Prepare to attack.
[Rouge starts to flee.]
Flying Dog Pilot: Hold it.
[She dodges the lasers the Flying Dog fires, then avoids its missile. She then rebounds off a wall and destroys one of its missile launchers. The time bomb is at 5:13 and counting down.]

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Outside]

[Sonic sees Shadow fleeing in the forest below, and lands in front of him.]
Sonic: Shadow, this is it. I want answers. Who are you, and what are you up to?
Shadow: [Smirks] You'll find out.
[They clash several times. Sonic even manages to land a hit on Shadow.]

[Scene Change: Prison Island - inside]

[Rouge finally destroys the Flying Dog, but the door closes, preventing her from escaping.]
Rouge: And just when things were going so well...
[The time bomb is now at three minutes and counting.]
Intercom: Red alert! An explosive device has been detected in the security area! Begin emergency evacuation immediately!

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Outside]

[Tanaka is now at the bottom of the cliff near the swan boat, but Chris is nowhere to be seen.]
Tanaka: Mister Chris! Where are you?
[Tanaka returns to the top of the cliff.]
Tanaka: He's gone! He must be on the island somewhere!
[Amy and Tails are surprised.]
Tanaka: I must go and find Mr. Chris fast! Mr. Chris!
[Amy and Tails follow him.]

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Forest]

[Sonic and Shadow are still fighting. Shadow's wrist communicator activates.]
Rouge: [Over radio] Come in, Shadow. Shadow, do you read me? I have a little problem on my hand.

[Scene Change: Prison Island - inside]

[Rouge is slumped against the door.]
Rouge: [On radio] I'm sort of locked inside the vault with the Chaos Emeralds. There's no way to open it from in here, so I'm stuck.
Shadow: [Over radio] I can't talk. I have to go now!
Rouge: [On radio] You mean... you won't help me?
[The sound of Shadow's fighting comes from the other end of the radio.]
Shadow: [Over radio] Not right at this second, no.
Rouge: [On radio] You can't leave me. Remember, I have the Emeralds.

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Forest]

Shadow: [On radio] I'm busy right now!
[He is bashed by Sonic, and Shadow returns the blow.]

[Scene Change: Prison Island - inside]

Rouge: I should have known not to count on that shady character for any help!
[She tries to break down the door, but to no avail.]

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Forest]

[As the Prison Island staff evacuate, Chris runs through the forest searching for Sonic.]
Chris: Sonic...

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Inside]

Rouge: [Sighs] I'm finished, and worse than that, I'm losing three Emeralds, too...

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Forest]

Dr. Eggman: [On radio] Shadow, come in now! Shadow!
[But Sonic and Shadow are still fighting. Shadow's wrist communicator activates.]
Dr. Eggman: [Over radio] Shadow, where are you? The detonator will go off any second! You have to get off the island now or you're going to be blown sky-high! Do you read me?
Sonic: Oh no!
Dr. Eggman: [Over radio] I'm not waiting for you and Rouge any longer. You two are on your own.
Sonic: I have to get everybody off the island!
[He flees. Shadow watches Eggman fly over the clearing. Just then Chris sees Shadow, and thinks he is Sonic.]
Chris: I found him! It's Sonic!
[But Chris stops.]
Chris: [To himself] That's not Sonic...
[Shadow sees a vision of Maria.]
Shadow: [To himself] Maria...

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Inside]

Rouge: When I found three Emeralds, I thought this was my lucky day...
Shadow: [Over radio] Rouge, this is Shadow. Come in.
Rouge: [On radio] I'm here.
Shadow: [Over radio] Do you still have the Chaos Emeralds?
Rouge: [On radio] Of course I still have them.
Shadow: [Over radio] I'll be right there to pick them up.
Rouge: He's coming for the Chaos Emeralds, but what about me?

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Forest]

[Chris is shocked at what Shadow says next.]
Shadow: [On radio] Dr. Eggman, I'm going back in to pick up the Chaos Emeralds for you.
[Only one minute remains until the bomb explodes.]
Maria: [In Shadow's head] Shadow, promise me...
Shadow: [To himself] Yes, Maria. You will be avenged! [Out loud] Chaos Control!
[Chris runs towards Shadow.]
Chris: [To himself] Shadow! He's the one they want! Now I can prove Sonic's innocent!
[Tanaka arrives on the scene.]
Tanaka: Chris, waaiit!
[Chris grabs Shadow the moment he uses Chaos Control, causing both of them to disappear.]
Tanaka: Chris?
[He falls to his knees.]
Tanaka: He is gone...
[As he begins to break down, Sonic grabs him and carries him to safety.]

[Scene Change: Prison Island - Inside, day]

[Shadow and Chris appear inside the vault.]
Rouge: Shadow!
[Shadow shoves Chris aside and takes the Chaos Emeralds from Rouge.]
Rouge: Oh, what the...?
[Only ten seconds remain until the bomb explodes.]
Shadow: Let's go!
Rouge: Hey, hold it, Shadow. You're not gonna leave this kid behind.
Shadow: It doesn't matter to me what happens to that boy.
Chris: Hold on! My friend got arrested 'cause of you. He's still here. We have to get him off the island. ... Please, will you help me? I have to rescue Sonic somehow? He would rescue you if it was the other way around. You have to help him please!
[In Shadow's mind, the image of Chris changes to Maria.]
Maria: [In Shadow's head] Please, Shadow...
Shadow: [To himself] Maria...
[Shadow uses Chaos Control seconds before the island explodes in a violent fiery eruption, taking Rouge and Chris with him. The explosion even rears up a small tsunami. It is now dusk, and Eggman watches from a distance before he flies away. The X-Tornado escapes safely.]
Tanaka: Mister Chris... Oh... Mister Chris!
[The episode ends and the credits roll]
