RETRIBUTION PART 1: UNSINKABLE CARMEN SANDIEGO
Written by: STEVE GRANAT & CYDNE CLARK


Zack and Ivy arrive at the prison.

Ivy: "Warden, we got a CrimeNet alert that an Acme prisoner escaped. Anything we can do?"
Warden: "Thanks detective, but our escapee didn't survive this explosion."
Ivy: "Who was he?"
Warden: "Doctor Gunnar Maelstrom. One of the most brilliant and frightening criminal minds there ever was."

The Warden doubts Maelstrom survived.

Warden: "No one could have escaped this blast, and it was Maelstrom's violent life that put him beneath that pile of rubble."
Zack: "It just doesn't make sense that someone as brilliant as Maelstrom would botch an escape this badly."

The Chief tells the detectives all about Maelstrom.

Zack: "Chief, what can you tell us about this creepazoid, Dr. Maelstrom?"
Chief: "Ooh! Deja vu. You're talking about the most ruthless criminal who ever lived. And he didn't recycle."
Zack: "Sounds like you knew him personally."
Chief: "Knew him? I put him in prison. Well, me and the famous ex-Acme detective by the name of Carmen Sandiego."
Ivy: "Carmen help put him away?"
Chief: "Yep. Back when she was one of us, say-it-loud-and-say-it-proud-but-just-say-it Acme detectives. The year was 1985..."

Carmen Corners Maelstrom at the U of Liverpool.

Carmen: "Sorry, Maelstrom."
Maelstrom: "You!"
Carmen: "Library's closed, and your card has expired."

Maelstrom about to make a run for it.

Carmen: "I'm afraid our little cat-and-mouse game is finally over, Dr. Maelstrom."
Maelstrom: "Are you certain, Detective Sandiego?"

Carmen borrows a motorcycle.

Carmen: "Acme detective Carmen Sandiego. Don't worry. I'll get this back to you."

Carmen corners Maelstrom again.

Maelstrom: "You Acme detectives certainly are a persistent breed."

Maelstrom gives her the slip with a nifty gadget.

Carmen: "Blast! How does he design those awesome vehicles?"

The Chief continues the story.

Chief: "Yep, yep, yep. This guy was one tough cookie, and I mean no soft chewy center. Of course, you know, I could have told Carmen how to handle him but this was back before I was in charge."

Carmen tries to figure out what Maelstrom is up to.

Inspector: "You and your computer, I tell you..."
Carmen: "Inspector, if I was half as high-tech as Dr. Maelstrom, I'd have had him by now."
Inspector: "Well, the boys at headquarters seem to agree with you, Carmen. They slapped together a little something to help even the odds. Introducing your new partner, Acme's very own Computerized Holographic Imaging Educational Facilitator... affectionately known as 'Chief'"

Carmen gets a clumsy partner.

Chief: "Oh, detective Sandiego, what an honor! Whoa! Oh no! An open window...!"
Carmen: "What a partner."

The Chief had a body.

Zack: "Chief, you had a body?"
Chief: "Well, it was kind of an experiment that didn't exactly work out. I... I'd really rather not talk about it."

Maelstrom breaks in on the Chief's frequency and taunts Carmen.

Maelstrom: "Knowledge is power, Carmen."
Carmen: "You're an epidemic on society, Maelstrom, and I'm about to become the cure."
Maelstrom: "Oh, you're a fool if you believe the reason you hunt me is to see me stopped, Carmen. We both live for the game. We're two sides of the same coin, you and I."
Carmen: "No! Never!"
Maelstrom: "Only I'm willing to admit that the art of the theft is what compels me."
Carmen: "All that compels you is greed."
Maelstrom: "That lofty moral superiority of yours will someday crumble like the Walls of Jericho, and you will see, what I see in you. What?"
Bilge: [whispers in his ear] "We intercepted this message, Boss. 'Jason arriving Sydney Harbor.'"
Maelstrom: "You are a thief at heart, Carmen, and right now it's my freedom you're trying to steal. Who knows what you will crave next, hmm?"

The Chief tells the detectives how they got around before the C-5.

Chief: "Since this was before they invented the C-5 Corridor, Carmen flew us from San Francisco to Australia in the Acme jet. Though new to flying, I laughed in the face of danger"
Chief [1985]: "Ah! Ah! Ah! Aaa..."

The Chief saves Carmen from the giant squid.

Chief: "Oh, give her up, you overgrown sushi!"

Carmen knows what Maelstrom wants.

Carmen: "Oh, my gosh, Chief. He's gong to steal the sunken ship Titanic. He'll desecrate a memorial to all those who lost their lives in that tragedy. We've got to stop him!"

teeny tiny black bar

Maelstrom's plan.

Maelstrom: "Descending in nuclear submersibles, we will attach magnetic disks to the Titanic's hull. Then activate the self-inflating pontoons, which will fill with hydrogen gas. The Titanic will rise like Venus from the sea."
Bilge: "All this just to get some old boat?"
Maelstrom: "Fool! The Titanic was the largest and finest ship of her day. 'Unsinkable', they called her."

Carmen easily defeats Maelstrom's henchmen.

Carmen: "That's why you're the henchmen and not the boss."

teeny tiny black bar

The Chief crashes on the boat.

Chief: "Uh, do you validate?"

teeny tiny black bar

Chief finishes the story.

Chief: "Next day, September 1, a crew lead by Dr. Robert Ballard found the Titanic, Maelstrom went to prison, and I asked for a nice quiet desktop job. Maybe as a paperweight."

teeny tiny black bar

Zack and Ivy find Maelstrom alive and well.

Zack: "We're from Acme and you're busted!"
Maelstrom: "Am I now? Gentlemen, please show our young friends how we deal with uninvited Acme agents."
