JUST LIKE OLD TIMES
Written by: David Ehrman
Zack and Ivy ice skate at Rockefeller Center, NY.
Ivy: "Zack, you get better at skating by skating."
Zack: "But Ivy, this is inner skating. It's subliminal coaching. Some people think your mind can learn even while you sleep. So, I listened all night and woke-up a skater!"
Zack shows Ivy how much the tape taught him.
Ivy: "Okay, Wayne Gretsky. Let's see you do this!"
Tape: "You are an ice champion. All blades and brawn. You have inner skating abilities others only dream of."
Zack: "Oh, Ivy! Whoah!"
Tape: "When you wake-up you will show the world your triple lutz."
Ivy: "Ha ha ha. Or that you're a triple klutz."
The C-5 to Greenland.
Chief: "On Dasher, on Dancer, on Ivy, and Zack. On through the C-5 and bring Carmen back! Hey, that rhymes."
They spot Carmen in Greenland.
Zack: "There's nothing green about this place."
Ivy: "But there's something red, and it's not Santa."
Carmen descends from the transmission tower.
Ivy: "You're going down, Carmen."
Carmen: "How right you are, Ivy."
Zack stops the henchmen his way.
Zack: "The name's Bond. James Bond. And I have a license to throw snowballs."
Carmen escaped, but Zack finds a clue.
Zack: "Ivy, water!"
Ivy: "So what, you think she melted?"
Zack slips and knocks his sister down with him.
Carmen: "The judges give you a 5.0 for style but a 10 for persistence."
Carmen and the Player.
Player: "You got away, but you didn't get the tower, Carmen."
Carmen: "You can't always get what you want, Player. And then again, maybe you can..."
Carmen and henchmen steal the Chief.
Manny: "With that linkup you created at the radio tower I was able to piggy back on another signal and bypass Acme's security system."
Carmen: "And they thought I was after the tower when I was really after...you Chief."
Chief: "Help! Where am I? What's going on?"
Moe: "So what are you going to do with him, Carmen?"
Lars: "Steal all of Acme's files? Close down the agency?"
Carmen: "It's Christmas, boys. I just want to spend it with an old friend playing a world-class game of chess like we did every Christmas Eve before I became a thief."
The Chief's computer virus is hard at work.
Chief: "Whoa, Carmen Sandiego! I haven't seen you in ages. Good to see you. How you doing? Kissy-kissy. Love your outfit! You do have an eye for color. Red, isn't it?"
Manny: "Some of his files seem to have been corrupted in the trans mode, Carmen."
Carmen: "He doesn't remember I'm no longer an Acme agent! This is going to be a more pleasant Christmas than I ever imagined."
Carmen and the Chief talk about a past case. The Chief is fading fast.
Manny: "It's more than a memory loss. He's starting to break up. He could be wiped out entirely if I don't..."
Carmen: "Don't let that happen, Manny. Chief remember our Christmas together in Sweden? That big jewel theft case I cracked?"
Chief: "Do I? You cut those burglars down to size then had time to take in the sites. And Sweden at Christmas? Oh, what sites. The beautiful candle light processions in memory of Santa Lucia who brought food to the hungry. And...argh! Probably why the Swedes use battery powered candles these days."
Carmen: "[laughs] Oh, I've missed you, Chief."
A clue from Zack and Ivy.
Carmen: "A clue? For me?"
Chief: "Who in the world are Zack and Ivy?"
Manny: "It seems like he's lost more files than we first thought."
Carmen: "Do whatever it takes Manny, but don't lose him before Christmas is over. Ah, Chief, word on the street is Zack and Ivy are two of the smartest new thieves around. And it looks like we have a new Christmas case on our hands."
Carmen sneaks into the British Museum.
Carmen: "I do love a good museum."
Carmen is confronted by London detectives.
Reggis: "Hold it right there, Carmen!"
Carmen: "Well, if it isn't London's first Acme team, Reggis and Barrow. Tell Ivy and Zack I like their Christmas gift."
Reggis: "There's no exit that way!"
Carmen: "[screams as she falls]"
Carmen sings as she escapes with Handel's "Messiah".
Carmen: "Eat your heart out, Mary Poppins! Hallelujah. Hallelujah! Hallelujah!"
Carmen is very worried about the Chief.
Carmen: "Manny, do something! The Chief's losing it completely!"
Manny: "I'm trying, Carmen. I'm trying."
Carmen: "If you lose him he'll be gone forever and that's not what I wanted for a Christmas surprise, Manny! Fix it, please."
Carmen tries to calm the Chief.
Carmen: "You're just missing some program files, Chief. We're...working on it."
Chief: "Well, they always said I was a few files short of a full download."
Carmen's henchmen are spooked and almost kill her at the Castel Sant'Angelo.
Carmen: "Pull me up! Pull me up! Ahhh!"
Armando helps steady Carmen at the Castel Sant'Angelo.
Carmen: "I'd say you're at the end of your rope, detectives."
Really cool quote.
Carmen: "Game's not over till the lady in red sings, boys. And I'm having too much fun to head home yet"
Carmen is cornered by the tree at Rockefeller Center.
Carmen: "All set boys."
Ivy: "Not so fast, Carmen."
Carmen: "What? How did you know I'd come here?"
Ivy: "We knew after two near misses you wouldn't risk capture at D.C."
Zack: "Power of suggestion, Carmen. Just like my how-to tapes. We mentioned thin ice, made you think of ice skating, made you think of this tree at Rockefeller Center."
Carmen takes the tree home.
Ivy: "Your home for the holidays is going to be the city jail, Carmen."
Carmen: "This Christmas game's not over yet! Bringing the tree home is always my favorite part of Christmas. Time to go home and wait for Santa."
Ivy: "Game, set, and match to us, Carmen. All the exits are blocked."
Carmen: "Not so fast, Ivy. I haven't given you my present."
Carmen gives all the detectives a Carmen doll.
Zack: "Look, it's a Carmen doll."
Carmen Doll: "The only Carmen you'll catch is this one. Merry Christmas."
Ivy: "Merry Christmas, Carmen."
Carmen: "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"
Carmen and the Player.
Player: "Bah, humbug, Carmen!"
Carmen: "Nobody likes a sore loser, Player. Especially on Christmas."
Player: "Maybe next Christmas, I'll have a surprise for you under the tree...if your tree's still there. Better watch out!"
