[It's a peaceful day at the Chaotix office. Vector is sitting at his desk listening to "Team Chaotix" on his headphones, bobbing his head to the music. Espio is resting quietly against a locker when he hears a buzzing noise.]
- Espio: Hmm?
[Suddenly, Charmy barges into the office carrying a package.]
- Charmy: It's here, yeah!
- Vector: Whoaaa!! [Charmy crashes into Vector, knocking him off his chair, and the package is sent flying. Espio whips out a kunai and flings it. The kunai catches the package's string and leaves it hanging on the wall.] What's wrong with you?!
- Charmy: It's here, it's here, we've got work!
- Vector: WHAT? [The package opens and a walkie-talkie falls out. Vector frantically tries to grab it before it breaks.] Whoaaa!!
[Vector catches the walkie-talkie, and a mysterious client begins to speak from it. Team Chaotix's theme plays louder in the background.]
- Client: I've heard good things about you and require your detective services. And I can pay handsomely!
[Dollar signs appear in Vector's and Charmy's eyes as they are elated by the thought of making a lot of money.]
- Espio: I've got a bad feeling about this...
- Vector: Espio, don't be silly. Besides, you know our policy! We never turn down work that pays!
- Charmy: Yeah, you know our policy!
- Vector: Come on, boys. Let's go!
- Charmy: Yes, sir!
[Vector heads off, with Charmy following eagerly. Espio hesitates, and then goes off with them.]
- Espio: Roger!
Before Seaside Hill
[Team Chaotix have arrived at Seaside Hill.]
- Charmy: Yeah! Beach time!
- Vector: Now what are we gonna do?
- Client: First I must test your abilities.
- Vector: Bring it on.
- Espio: Ready.
Before Egg Hawk
[The Egg Hawk flies by over ocean ruins.]
- Dr. Eggman: So, you're the ones who were playing games with my army!
- Vector: Sorry! Just part of the job.
- Espio: That's the evil genius, Dr. Eggman!
- Charmy: Dr. Who?
- Dr. Eggman: Yes! Let me show you who I really am.
Before Grand Metropolis
[Team Chaotix are standing on one of the buildings.]
- Client: Now for the real test! All of you are about to enter Eggman's territory! Are you ready?
- Espio: Not too late to change your mind...
- Vector: Why do you think we're here? How else are we gonna make the rent?
- Charmy: Let's go!
Before fighting Team Dark
- Rouge: Man, who are those creeps over there?
[Espio hears Rouge and becomes wary. Vector notices him]
- Vector: What's up, Espio?
- Espio: And you are...? [he, Vector and Charmy turn around and notice Team Dark]
- Rouge: Just whaddya think you're doing here?
- Vector: Who's this broad?
- Espio: Our client's adversary, perhaps.
- Charmy: You mean the bad guys?!
- Rouge: You guys don't fool me. I know what you're after! Better stay outta my way!
Before Casino Park
[Team Chaotix are standing on a red path in Casino Park. Charmy is being held by Vector.]
- Charmy: Let me go! Let me go! I wanna play!
- Vector: Fancy place!
- Espio: Where there's light, there's shadow. Careful!
[Vector lets go of Charmy.]
- Charmy: Yahoo!
Before Robot Carnival
[Team Chaotix is standing on top of a circular platform with Eggman hovering by.]
- Vector: Dr. Eggman!
- Dr. Eggman: You've made quite a mess here. I'll accept your apologies and payment with your lives.
- Vector: Want some... come and get it!
- Espio: On guard!
- Charmy: Guard on!
Before Rail Canyon
- Vector: This is gotta be Eggman's base.
- Client: Security is tight around here, so watch your backs.
- Vector: Just the way we like it!
- Charmy: Cool!
- Espio: All right, let me take point.
Before Egg Albatross
[The Egg Albatross flies overhead in the canyon. Team Chaotix is running towards it.]
- Espio: That must be...
- Vector: Whadda we do now?
- Client: Dr. Eggman's secret weapons must be aboard that ship. Destroy it before it reaches the canyon!
- Vector: Piece of a cake!
After beating Egg Albatross
[The defeated Eggman is lying on the floor in Bullet Station. It appears to be a model with an Eggman head on a spring sticking out of its belly, set up as a decoy for the team.]
- Vector: Good job, boys! Guess that Eggman was a fake after all.
[The client overhears Vector and accidentally breaks character, nearly revealing his true identity. Vector is confused by this.]
- Client: Of course it was!
- Vector: Huh?!
[Fearing that the Chaotix might be suspicious, the client quickly changes the subject.]
- Client: Listen carefully... there's a jungle just to the north of here. Go there immediately!
- Vector: Got it!
[The Chaotix begin to walk away.]
- Charmy: You know what? Our client sure seems to know a lot about this Dr. Eggman guy.
- Espio: Definitely an agent... a relative, perhaps.
[Vector looks back at the Eggman decoy.]
- Vector: Strangely enough, I had the same weird feeling about our client's real identity. It could be you-know-who...
Before fighting Team Rose
- Vector: Excuse me, Miss. I was wondering if I could ask you something.
- Amy: If it's about a date, it'll have to wait!
- Vector: A DATE?! You think this is a joke, you little brat?
- Espio: Now hand over that Chao, nice and easy...
[Cream, slightly unnerved, hugs Cheese protectively.]
- Cream: I betcha you're the ones who took Chocola-Chao.
- Vector: What?!
- Big: It's not nice to tease my friends.
[Charmy anticipates an epic battle and becomes excited.]
- Charmy: Yeah, time to rock 'n' roll!
Before Hang Castle
[The Chaotix are walking towards Hang Castle.]
- Espio: Talk about a huge misunderstanding.
- Vector: Yeah, we sure made fools of ourselves.
- Charmy: Nothing new for you, Vector!
- Vector: What?! You were the one who jumped at the chance...!
- Client: Now is not the time for arguing! Now's the time to be on guard! It's very mysterious around here!
Before Robot Storm
[The Chaotix is confronting Dr. Eggman.]
- Vector: There you are, you mustache moron! [into the walkie-talkie] He's the one, right?
- Client: "Mustache moron"?! I'm the world's greatest-- [catches himself] Take him out, quickly.
- Vector: This is gonna cost you extra!
Before Egg Fleet
[In the sky, the entire armada of Egg Fleet is seen. Dr. Eggman taunts at the heroes at their attempt to reach him.]
- Dr. Eggman (voice): Muhahaha... you fools must all have a death wish? Witness this invincible battleship built by the hands of a genius. Its power... unmatched throughout the universe!
[Team Chaotix is standing on a battleship warming up.]
- Vector: Once we start a job... we finish the job! That's our policy! We're Team Chaotix!
Before Egg Emperor
[Team Chaotix confronts Dr. Eggman in his Egg Emperor at the core of the Egg Fleet.]
- Vector: Hehehe. Looks like we're in a jam, boys!
- Espio: Evil must die! Beware my ninja power!
- Dr. Eggman: Hmph! Enough of this! Espio, Charmy, Vector! Time to meet your maker!
- Charmy: Bring it on!
After beating Egg Emperor
[The Chaotix are staring down at the defeated phony Eggman in his fortress. The decoy melts into a black fluid.]
- Vector: Guess he was a fake after all...
- Espio: What do you mean, "after all"?
[Vector dents the door of Eggman's capsule with his fists and rips it open.]
- Vector: We're here to save you! Dr. Eggman, I presume?
[Eggman glares back at them. Espio and Charmy are astounded.]
- Espio: What's going on?
- Charmy: What's up?
- Dr. Eggman: [a close-up reveals Eggman has a communicator just like the one Vector carried along; he is the mysterious client who hired the Chaotix] You knew it was me all along, didn't you?
- Vector: It's all part of being a good detective.
- Espio: Were we fooled that easily?
- Charmy: You're ROTTEN!
- Dr. Eggman: Hey, hold on you guys! It's no trick, and besides, I plan on paying you. You'll be rewarded handsomely for helping me! As soon as I conquer the world, I will pay you!
[The Chaotix pause in anger, knowing that Eggman won't keep this promise.]
- Vector: [crackling knuckles] Some nerve promising what you ain't got!
- Espio: We've been had!
- Dr. Eggman: J-j-just wait a minute, just listen to me!
[Charmy is irate and has had enough.]
- Charmy: Take this you BAD MAN!
[Charmy beats up Eggman and stings him all over. Eggman cries out in pain.]
- Dr. Eggman: Waaaaaah!! Aaaarrrghh!!
