This is the transcript of the Sonic X episode, "Sonic's Scream Test".

[Scene: An old castle]

[Throughout the castle, faint, childlike laughing can be heard. The camera zooms in toward one of the doors.]

[Scene Change: Outside the castle]

[The camera zooms out of Sonic's mouth as he yawns from his reclining place atop one of the battlements. Lindsey Thorndyke is preparing for a shoot for her movie.]
Director: [To Lindsey] You were fantastic in that last take, Lindsey, but I would like to give it one more go. Take it slower, and let those tears go this time. [To the lead actor] And Roger, please try to show some feeling this take.
Cameraman: I think we should go with the 65-millimeter here.
[Chris and his friends and Ella are attending the film shoot. Ella approaches wearing a different outfit, and her hair is done up. ]
Amy: Ella? What happened to your hair?
Chris: Did Mom get you a part in the movie?
Ella: That's right. They needed someone to play an extremely young and beautiful housekeeper, so they type-cast me. How do I look?
Director: All right, let's go. Places, please!
[Filming is underway. In the act, Lindsey character is begging the lead actor's character to stay.]
Lindsey: But Bret, what will I do without you? You can't leave me now! I need you, Bret!
[The lead actor walks away.]
Lindsey: Bret, don't go!
[Lindsey cries]
Director: And cut! Print it!
Amy: She sounds like she's really into that guy Bret.
[She beams, causing Chris to blush and laugh nervously. His mom approaches.]
Lindsey: Was I good?
Chris: Great.
Lindsey: Oh, I thought you were bringing your friends. Where are they?
Tails: We're right here.
Lindsey: My, you look like a real fox. It's amazing what the makeup department can do with a little hair and a pot of glue these days.
Tails: Uh, didn't you tell her about us yet?
Chris: [Shrugs] I tried, but Mom's clueless sometimes. Hey, I haven't seen Cream and Cheese. I wonder where they went?
Tails: [Shrugs] Don't ask me.
[The director is reviewing the shot.]
Director: Rewind that! ... Hold it!
[The cameraman stops on a certain frame.]
Director: There. You see?
[The director points to a certain part of the frame. There, watching Lindsey crying, are Cream and Cheese. Chris gasps.]
Director: I didn't call for animals in this shot!
Cameraman: Don't worry, D.B. We can erase it digitally in post.
Director: Good idea. Let's print it. All right, let's move on to the next scene, people!
[Chris breathes a sigh of relief.]

[Scene Change: Inside the castle]

[Sonic enters the castle and begins to explore it.]

[Scene Change: Outside the castle]

[The next scene is being set up. Chris, his friends, and Ella are sitting on some stone steps nearby.]
Chris: We'll be out of camera range over here.
Man: Okay, rehearse it!
[Lindsey begins running forward.]
Lindsey: Please, Bret, don't leave me! Come back! What will I do? Where shall I go?
[The camera bumps an object that is right next to it. The object is a pedestal with a talisman on top of it. The top of the talisman depicts a moon.]
Cameraman: I didn't notice this thing before. What is it? Some kind of crazy sculpture? ... Guess I'll have to move it out of the way.

[Scene Change: Inside the castle]

[A strange sensation falls on Sonic.]

[Scene Change: Outside the castle]

Cameraman: On second thought, I'll move the camera.
[The cameraman moves the camera back a few feet.]

[Scene Change: Inside the castle]

[The sensation ends.]
Sonic: I don't think this is part of the movie...

[The opening theme plays]

[Scene Change: Outside the castle]

[The next take is on. Lindsey is once again running.]
Lindsey: Come back! What shall I do? Where shall I go?
[This time, however, the talisman gets in the way of the shot.]
Cameraman: It's still in the way.
[The cameraman removes the talisman from the pedestal and places it on the ground.]

[Scene Change: Inside the castle]

[Sonic feels the sensation ending again. He looks down the dark hallway.]

[Scene Change: Outside the castle]

Man: Places, everybody!
Director: And... action!

[Scene Change: Inside the castle, night]

[The film crew are filming inside the castle. Lindsey is carrying a candle.]
Sound Guy: Uh, DB? There's a noise.
Director: Cut!
[Elsewhere, Sonic looks out the window at the courtyard. Back at the shoot, Ella has since changed into her normal outfit.]
Ella: Chris asked for my autograph.
Sound Guy: Can't find anything wrong with the sound on my end.
Man: Are we good to go here?
Sound Guy: Yeah. Let's try it again.
Director: All right, Lindsey. Action!
[Once again, Lindsey walks down the hall with the candlestick.]
Sound Guy: Sorry. There's still noise.
Director: Cut! That's a wrap! I hate working on location...
[Later, Lindsey has changed into her normal outfit, and is busy removing the makeup from her face, when Chris enters.]
Chris: I just came to say good night.
Lindsey: You're such a considerate young man.
Chris: Yeah. Anyway, I'll see you tomorrow, I guess.
Lindsey: Chris!
[She runs over and hugs Chris.]
Lindsey: Sweet dreams, my darling son.
Chris: You too, Mom. Good night.
[They break the hug.]
Lindsey: Off you go.
Chris: We'll see you on the set in the morning, Mom.
Lindsey: Until the morrow, my love.
[Chris leaves the room. Meanwhile, the sound guy is walking the halls with a microphone and headphones, searching for the source of the sound.]
Sound Guy: I can't sleep 'til I find that noise.
[Chris heads to his room to see that the only one there is Tails, who is reading a book.]
Chris: Where is everybody, Tails?
Tails: The girls are having a sleepover in Ella's room.
Chris: And Sonic?
Tails: He's probably exploring around as usual.
Chris: I sure hope Sonic doesn't get into any trouble...

[Scene Change: Outside the castle]

[Sonic is walking around outside when he notices the talisman on the ground. He walks over and picks it up.]

[Scene Change: Inside the castle]

[The sound guy finally finds the source of the noise, which is coming from behind a door.]
Sound Guy: Oh! It's here.
[Suddenly four ghosts, known as Booms, appear behind the sound guy. They laugh.]
Sound Guy: Sounds like some kids are playing.
[He turns around, but the Booms disappear. Meanwhile, Lindsey is continuing with her makeup removal, when she hears the sound of children's laughing.]
Lindsey: Chris, honey?
[The laughing continues. Lindsey stands up.]
Lindsey: All right, come out here. This little joke has gone far enough.
[She looks around, but no one is there.]
Lindsey: I thought I heard something. Perhaps it was just the wind.
[She turns back to her makeup removal.]
Lindsey: It's been such a long day...
[Suddenly Lindsey's reflection, which had been looking away from her, looks back towards her. The relection's face has the features of an aggressive Boom.]
Lindsey's Reflection: Well hello there.
[She screams]

[Scene Change: Outside the castle]

[Sonic is examining the moon side of the talisman. He turns it over.]
Sonic: I wonder what this thing is for?
[Soon, everyone is desperately searching for Lindsey. The sound crew are searching outside.]
Director: Can you hear me? Lindsey! Answer me! Are you all right?

[Scene Change: Inside the castle]

[Chris and Tails are searching one of the rooms.]
Chris: Hey Mom!
[Ella, Amy, and Cream are searching the halls.]
Ella: Are you here, Mrs. Thorndyke?
Amy: Hey, Mrs. Thorndyke! Are you okay?
Cream: We're all worried about you!
Cheese: Chao chao chao chao chao chao!
Cream: Do you hear something, Cheese?
[They hear laughter.]
Amy: I don't like the sound of this, Ella.
Ella: It's coming from behind this wall.
[Ella knocks on the wall.]
Ella: Excuse me! Is that you, Mrs. Thorndyke?
Amy: I better go get some help!
[She starts to race off, but ghostly hands shoot out of the wall, cutting her off. She screams.]

[Scene Change: Outside the castle]

Sonic: Sounds like Amy!

[Scene Change: Inside the castle]

Chris: What's happening, Amy?
[Cream and Cheese are gone. Amy is trying to keep Ella's arm from going through the wall too.]
Amy: Help me save Ella!
[Not even the combined forces of Chris, Tails, and Amy can stop Ella from being pulled into the wall - which causes them to be thrown backwards.]
Amy: Something pulled them all right through the wall!
[Sonic arrives. He is still carrying the talisman.]
Sonic: What's goin' on?
Amy: We were looking for Chris' mom and all of a sudden, we were attacked by ghosts!
Sonic: I don't believe in ghosts.
[Four Booms poke themselves out of the walls, as if to taunt Sonic. He attacks the wall. A chunk of it breaks off, revealing a purple portal.]
Chris: Whoa. What is that?
[A group of ghostly hands emerge from the portal. As Chris, Tails, and Amy flee, Sonic tries to attackthe hands, but to no avail.]
Sonic: Maybe there is such a thing as ghosts after all!
[The hands grab Tails and pull him through the portal.]
Chris and Amy: It grabbed Tails!
Sonic: Bring him back!
[The hands attack again. Sonic dodges them, but they grab him anyway and start to pull him through the portal.]
Chris and Amy: Sonic!
Sonic: Chris, catch!
[He tosses the talisman to Chris, who catches it.]
Chris: What's this, Sonic?
[Suddenly the broken pieces of the wall begin to seal back together and repair the wall.]
Sonic: I don't know, but it fell off a pedestal outside and I think it has to do with all this!
Amy: No! Sonic!
[Amy hammers the now-completely sealed wall.]
Amy: Bring him back, you hear me?! You can't... take... my... Sonic...
[The camera zooms towards the talisman in Chris' hands.]

[Scene Change: Outside the castle]

[Chris and Amy are inspecting the pedestal. Chris is holding the talisman.]
Amy: This must be where Sonic found that thing. But I don't see what this has to do with those ghosts.
Chris: Well... I'm not sure, but there's something written here. "Appears under the moon. Disappears under the sun." I wonder what that means?
[Chris bends down and feels a spot at the base of the pedestal.]
Amy: What, Chris?
[Chris stands up.]
Chris: I feel a breeze coming from the base. There must be a hidden passageway underneath it.
[Amy suddenly draws her hammer and slams into the pedestal, knocking it aside and revealing a hidden staircase.]
Chris: Whoa... You think we should go take a look?
Amy: We may be able to rescue Sonic. Let's go.
[She starts to head down the staircase, but Chris grabs her arm.]
Chris: Hold on. It could be dangerous down there.
Amy: I know that.
Chris: But... don't you think we should let the police check it out? I mean...
Amy: Hmph.
[She heads down the stairs.]
Chris: But Amy, we...
[She doesn't respond.]
Chris: All right...
[He has no choice but to follow her.]

[Scene Change: The Basement]

[Chris and Amy are descending the stairs together.]
Amy: I thought you were scared, Chris.
Chris: Of course I'm scared. Aren't you?
Amy: [Shrugs] No.
[She screams after a drop of water falls from a stalactite and onto her.]

[Scene Change: An unknown location]

[Sonic, Ella, Lindsey, Tails, Cream, Cheese, and Ella, are all unconscious and floating around. Nearby are King Boom Boo and the Booms, who are laughing. Suddenly the Booms change to their aggressive forms.]

[Scene Change: The Basement]

[Amy holds onto Chris for security as they continue their descent.]
Amy: Remember, Chris, ghosts love it if they see you're scared, so if you run into one, stay calm.
Chris: I'll pretend like I don't even notice them.
[They reach the bottom of the stairs. Suddenly four Booms come from the door at the end of the hall and speed toward them, then change into their aggressive forms. Amy grabs the talisman from Chris and holds it above her head. This causes the Booms to retreat back to where they came from.]
Chris: It seems like they're scared of that thing.
Amy: All right... Let's show those ghosts that we can spook them!
[She runs towards the door.]
Chris: Amy, wait!
[Chris follows her into another room, which appears to be massive.]
Amy: Where'd the ghosts go?
Chris: They must be around here someplace...
Amy: They can go through walls. Maybe they already escaped.
Chris: [Pointing] They're heading down those stairs!
[They see the Booms flying through another door. One of them stops to look at them before proceeding.]

[Scene Change: An unknown location]

[They see the Booms flying through another door. One of them stops to look at them before proceeding.]

[Scene Change: The Basement]

[Amy and Chris are standing before the door.]
Chris: Are you ready, Amy?
Amy: Let's do it.
[Amy opens the door slightly and holds the talisman out in front of her, before they both enter the room.]
Amy: Is anybody here?
[They walk further into the room.]
Chris: It looks like the ghosts led us to a dead end.
Amy: Sonic must be here.
Chris: But there's nobody around. Where could they be keeping him?
Amy: [Calling] Sonic! ... Soooniiic!
Sonic: [Off-screen calling] Amy! Chris! I'm up here!
[They look up to see Sonic looking down at them from the portal on the ceiling.]
Amy and Chris: Sonic!
Sonic: There's not much time, so listen! [King Boom Boo's voice] I've always loved you, Amy.
Amy: Well, I'm sure you know how I feel...
Sonic: [King Boom Boo's voice] You can free me if you place that stone into the space in the wall.
Amy: Right, Sonic. I sure am glad we brought this thing along.
[She finds the hole in the wall.]
Amy: That must be where it goes.
Sonic: I said don't put that thing over there, Amy! That's how the ghosts get power!
[Amy reaches the window.]
Amy: Is this where it goes?
Sonic: [King Boom Boo's voice] Wonderful, Amy. Now place that stone in the space in the wall with the moon side facing upwards.
Amy: What do you mean, "the moon side"?
[She flips the talisman over.]
Amy: Oh, I see.
Chris: I don't think this is a good idea...
Amy: It'll be fine. Sonic knows exactly what he's doing.
Sonic: No, Amy! Don't!
[But Amy places the talisman into the hole anyway.]
Sonic: [King Boom Boo's voice] You're the best, Amy.
Amy: [Blushing] Oh, it was nothing. I'm just glad we're going to be back together again.
[Suddenly the moon on the talisman glows, filling the room with a bright light. When it dies down, King Boom Boo and his Booms are there in the room.]
Amy: Where'd he come from?!
King Boom Boo: Thank you, Amy.
[He and the Booms laugh.]
Amy: Hey! That was you pretending to be Sonic!
Sonic: You don't have a chance against that thing! Don't even think about taking it on!
Amy: [To King Boom Boo] I'm not letting some fool make a fool out of me!
[She leaps towards King Boom Boo and tries to attack him with her hammer, but he disappears as she reaches him, causing her attack to fail. She struggles to keep her balance upon landing. Then suddenly, he reappears behind her and grabs her.]
Sonic and Chris: Oh!
Amy: No! Let me go!
[She struggles to free herself, but a Boom possesses her, and she faints. King Boom Boo places her on the ground, and Chris runs up to her.]
Chris: Amy! Please, Amy, open your eyes for me!
[Her eyes snap open. Her face now has the features of a Boom.]
Amy: [King Boom Boo's voice] Stop interfering with my plans or you'll never leave this castle!
Chris: Amy!
[Suddenly Amy chases after him, swinging her hammer. Chris flees, but trips over a stone.]
Amy: Amy, please don't do it!
[Amy raises her hammer for the finishing blow, but Chris narrowly dodges, gets up, and continues running. Amy swings her hammer, but Chris narrowly dodges, gets up, and continues running.]
Chris: Sonic! Help me!
Sonic: I'll help you, but first you have to get me out of here!
[Chris stops in front of the talisman.]
Chris: Please... Stop, Amy!
[Amy, who is about to deliver another hit, stops.]
Chris: Now I get it...
King Boom Boo: [Flashback] Wonderful, Amy. Now place that stone in the space in the wall with the moon side facing upwards.
Chris: [To himself] The moon side upwards... What did it say on that pedestal? 'Appears under the moon. Disappears under the sun.' [Out loud] Hey, that's it!
[He grabs hold of the talisman.]
Chris: The ghosts show up when the moon's facing up!
[King Boom Boo and the Booms race towards Chris in a last-ditch attempt to stop him.]
Chris: And when the sun is up, they're in big trouble!
[He flips the talisman over. The room is bathed in a light so bright that Chris is forced to squint, and Sonic is finally freed from the portal. He rushes over to Amy as she opens her eyes.]
Sonic: Amy, are you okay?
Amy: Oh, Sonic...
[She hugs him.]
Amy: Oh, Sonic!
Sonic: Please, Amy, we still have to stop the ghost attack!
[He turns to the Booms that are approaching.]
Sonic: I'll show you!
[He punches and kicks them, and they drop like flies. Next he turns to King Boom Boo.]
Sonic: Bring it on!
Amy: You spooks better slip right away!
[She attempts to hammer the other now-sweatdropping Booms, but her hammer goes right through them. Then the Booms merge to form a larger Boom.]
Amy: You creeps can't creep me out anymore!
[She prepares for a hammer attack.]
Amy: It's time to say goodbye!
[She slams her hammer into the Boom with all her might, send it into the opposite wall, before striking a smug pose. Chris wakes his mother.]
Chris: Mom! Wake up!
Lindsey: Chris...?
[She opens her eyes to see Ella, Chris, and Tails looking at her, concerned.]
Lindsey: How was I in that take?
[The others smile in amusement.]
Chris: This isn't a movie, Mom.
Sonic: Chris! Get goin' now!
Tails: Here, Sonic!
[He tosses Sonic a Power Ring, and Sonic catches it.]
Sonic: Thanks!
[The others leave the room, but Chris stops.]
Chris: Go on; I'll catch up with you guys later.
[Tails watches as Chris runs back into the room. As Sonic charges his ring power, Chris grabs the talisman and heads out. Sonic then home attacks King Boom Boo, sending him into the wall and showering him with rocks.]
Sonic: See ya!
Chris: Let's go, Mom. We gotta hurry.
Lindsey: If we're going to film an action scene, can't I have more comfortable shoes?
[The others stare. Sonic stops in front of them.]
Sonic: I thought you guys would be out of this place by now.
Chris: Dod you stop the ghosts?
Sonic: [Shrugs] They didn't stand a ghost of a chance.
[Suddenly King Boom Boo emerges from the rubble...]
Sonic: What?!
[...and starts eating the stairs in a last-ditch effort to stop them. Sonic carries Lindsey up the stairs, and Chris follows closely behind.]
Sonic: Okay, maybe I was wrong!
[Everyone makes it out. Chris is the last to emerge into daylight.]
Sonic: Hurry, Chris!
[Amy brings her hammer out and slams the pedestal back into place just as King Boom Boo is about to escape. Then Chris places the talisman back onto the pedestal, causing a bright light. Chris covers his eyes.]
Chris: Amy... Did I put the right side up?
[Amy takes a look]
Amy: It's the moon side!
Chris: So I messed up...
[Sonic gives a wink and thumbs-up.]
Sonic: [sarcastically] Yeah, big time.
Lindsey: That was fun, but I didn't know this was a fantasy film. Those special effects were incredibly realistic!
Police officer: [Off-screen] Hey!
[The director, a police officer, and another film crew member run up to the group.]
Director: You really had us worried.
Lindsey: Did something go wrong?
Police officer: Nobody ever got away from the ghosts down there before.
Chris: Who are they? Where did they all come from?
Police officer: Well... some folks say this place sits on an ancient burial ground. When the man who built the castle heard legends about ghosts, he laughed and said they were nonsense. Then the man disappeared the first night he stayed here, and nobody ever saw him again.
[Two laughing Booms appear in one of windows before disappearing. The episode ends.]
