                                       THUNDERBIRDS

               
               
               
                                        Written by

               
               
                    Peter Hewitt, William Osborne & Michael McCullers 

               
               
               
               
               
               Animated scenes of the Thunderbirds on various rescues begin 
               to play as some of the cast and crew names show up.

               
                             NARRATOR
               From a secret island in the South Pacific, 
               the courageous Tracy family run an organization               
               called International Rescue. When disaster strikes, anywhere 
               in the world, they are always first on the
               scene. They go by the name they gave their incredible machines, 
               the Thunderbirds.

               (Counts down numbers and shows corresponding
               Thunderbirds) Five, four, three, two, one. Thunderbirds are go!
 
               
               Cuts to live action, Alan Tracy is looking out a school window.
 
               
               
               But in this family of heroes, there is one son left behind.
 
               
               
               
                             TEACHER
               So, gentlemen, we all know that A2 plus 
               B2 equals... C2, that's right. But what 
               happens when we bring in Leonardo Da Vinci's E,
               F and... (Teacher notices Alan looking out window
               and not paying attention to the lesson) Mr. Tracy!

               
                             FERMAT
               Alan. Alan!

               
               Alan's head jerks back from the window and to the teacher who 
               is now standing in front of him.
 
               
                             TEACHER
               How kind of you to come back from outer 
               space, Alan. I trust re-entry wasn't 
               too rough?
 
               (Chuckles sarcastically and continues sounding even more annoyed) 
               Here on Earth we've been discussing the Pythagorean
               theorem. Did any of that happen to sink in?
 
               
                             ALAN TRACY
               I was just...

               
                             TEACHER
               Apparently not (she picks up his notebook 
               which he has been doodling in) "Thunderbirds 
               are go."

               Well, I hope you aren't going anywhere special over spring 
               break, Alan. Because I expect a 10,000 word paper on my desk
               the day you get back. That should keep you busy.
 
               
               Bells rings dismissing the students and Alan and Fermat walk 
               out to their lockers.
 
               
                             ALAN
               (mocking the teacher) "That should keep 
               you busy. Yeah, well you can take your 
               10,000 words 
               and stick them right up your..."

               
                             FERMAT
               Alan!

               
               Both boys turn around to see the headmaster approaching them 
               while walking by with the teacher from before

               
                             ALAN
               Headmaster.

               
                             HEADMASTER
               Mr. Tracy!

               
                             ALAN
               Miss Garrett.

                             FERMAT
               You gotta be more careful Alan.

                             ALAN
               Why can't I tell 'em I'm a Thunderbird 
               Fermat?
 
               
                             FERMAT
               Because technically you're not a Thunderbirds 
               yet. And if your identity was discovered, 
               it would a d-d-di- it could be very bad.

               
                             ALAN
               I know, I know.

               
                             EXCITED KID
               It's the Thunderbirds. They're gonna 
               be on TV. Let's go! They're gonna be 
               on TV.
 
               
                             ALAN
               Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Where are they?

               
                             EXCITED KID
               In Russia, at an oil rig fire.

               
                             ALAN
               Great! I'm stuck at school and my brothers 
               are on another cool mission.
 
               
                             FERMAT
               Wanna watch?

               
                             ALAN
               Yeah!

               
               Boys go into a crowded room with a TV on the news channel

               
                             LISA LOWE
               We are told this super-rig is now in 
               danger of total collapse.

               And there is real concern for the lives of six 
               men who remain trapped on board.

               An emergency call went out to the Thunderbirds just a few minutes 
               ago. They should be here any moment now.

               (pauses and points at the sky while exclaiming excitedly) 
               And here they are!
 
               
               The boys watching the TV begin to cheer

                             SCOTT TRACY
               Thunderbird 2 this is Thunderbird 1. 
               I have visual, south
 
               column, they're trapped on an inspection platform.

               
                             JEFF TRACY
               FAB. We'll take it from here.

               
                             MULLION
               Come on! Come on!

               
                             JEFF
               Scott, get out. That tower's coming 
               down.
 
               
                             SCOTT
               Got it.

               
               A blast of fire hits Thunderbird 1 and sends it a little farther 
               away from the accident zone.
 
               
                             JEFF
               Thunderbird 1 any damage?

               
                             SCOTT
               Negative, Dad.

                             ALAN
               Come on, come on! Swing around. You 
               can't get close enough, taking that 
               approach angle.
 
               
                             JEFF
               This approach angle's no good. Gonna 
               have to swing her around.
 
               
                             SCOTT
               Watch the wind shear Thunderbird 2.
 
               
               
                             JEFF
               Scotty, I was watching for wind shear 
               when you were still wearing diapers.
 
               
               
                             ALAN
               Come on, Dad.

               
               A blast of fire comes toward Thunderbird 2

               
                             JEFF
               Whoa! Hold on!

               
                             SCOTT
               Who needs the diapers now, Dad?

               
                             FERMAT
               What do they do now?

               
                             ALAN
               Probably drop the rescue platform from 
               Thunderbird 2.
 
               
                             VIRGIL TRACY
               Open 'em up. Here we go. Rescue platform's 
               on its way.
 
               
                             JEFF
               Virgil, how's it going?

               
                             VIRGIL
               It's looking good, Dad.

               
                             CREW MEMBER
               Come on! Jump!

               
                             VIRGIL
               Okay, I've got a visual. Hold it there. 
               Targets locked. Firing rescue lines. 
               (Directed toward the
 
               crew members who he just fired the rescue lines toward) Come 
               on, guys, hook 'em up. We gotta get
 
               you out of here.

               
                             CREW MEMBER
               READY

               
                             ANOTHER CREW MEMBER
               HOIST AWAY!

               
                             JEFF
               Alright, let's haul them out.

               
                             FERMAT
               Commencing reverse thrust.

               
                             JEFF
               Okay, let's bring 'em home.

               
                             CREW MEMBER
               Look out! (a couple of crew members 
               bump into each other as they are hoisted 
               up)
 
               
                             ALAN
               Man they gotta get 'em out fast. That 
               rig's gonna blow.
 
               
                             CREW MEMBER
               Hang on!

               Boys watching the TV gasp as the crew goes down back toward the 
               water a little bit
 
                             JEFF
               Whoa sorry, boys. Hold on tight. Here 
               we go.
 
               
                             ALAN
               Come on, Virgil.

               
                             VIRGIL
               Hold on guys

               
                             JEFF
               How you doing, son?

               
                             VIRGIL
               Never better

               
                             JEFF
               Thunderbird 1, commence knockdown procedure.
 
               
               
                             SCOTT
               FAB, Thunderbird 2. (after pressing 
               a bunch of buttons on his control panel) 
               Lining up target.
 
               Fire!

               
                             JEFF
               Bull's-eye! Outstanding shot. All right 
               boys, let's take these babies home.
 
               
               
                             LISA LOWE
               As you can see the fire has been extinguished. 
               The rocket fired from Thunderbird 1 
               has
 
               robbed it of the oxygen it needed to burn. Amazing! The Thunderbirds 
               have done it again, Chuck! '
 
               
               The boys watching the TV with Alan and Fermat begin cheering.
 
               
               
                             CHUCK
               That was great work, Lisa. Thanks a 
               lot.
 
               
                             KNOW IT ALL KID
               (directed at Alan) Ooh, I wish I could 
               be a Thunderbird one
 
               day. Thunderturd!

               
               The boys in the room "ooohh" and look at Alan for a response
 
               
               
                             ALAN
               That's another good one, diaper boy.
 
               
               
               All the boys look at the Know It All Kid and laugh

               
                             HEADMASTER
               Tracy! (after finding Alan in the sea 
               of boys he continues) There's someone 
               here for you.
 
               
               Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward, at your service. Alan darling, 
               your father's been unexpectedly detained.
 
               And he's asked me to pick you up. Is that all right?

               
                             FERMAT
               Sure beats the bus!

               
                             ALAN
               Definitely!

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Fantastic. Now, will any of these gorgeous 
               young things be joining you?
 
               
               All of the boys raise their hands and shout for Alan to choose 
               them.
 
                             ALAN
               Just Fermat.

                             LADY PENELOPE
               Quite right.

               
                             ALAN
               Lady Penelope, why are you in America? 
               Are you on a mission for my father?
 
               
               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Alan, shh! I am an undercover agent, 
               so please try to be discreet. (camera 
               pans over to
 
               Lady Penelope's pink car with Parker, her butler waiting by the 
               open door.) Here we are.
 
               
                             FERMAT
               Hi, Parker.

               
                             PARKER
               Good afternoon, Master Hackenbacker.
 
               
               
                             ALAN
               Hi, Nosey.

               
                             PARKER
               Less of that attitude, or I shall be 
               obliged to deliver the Parker Haymaker.
 
               
               
                             ALAN
               Okay, bring it on, big guy.

               
               They are all in the car and Parker is driving away

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Try not to run over any children, Parker.
 
               
               
                             PARKER
               Very good, milady.

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Come on, Parker, chop chop!

               
               Lady Penelope's begins to fly

               
                             ALAN
               All right!

               
                             FERMAT
               Whoa!

               
                             ALAN
               YES!

               
                             FERMAT
               Yeah! the boys high five

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               (reading a newspaper) Oh, look, Parker. 
               Pink is the new black this season.
 
               
               
                             PARKER
               I'm very glad to hear it, milady.

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               And hemlines are going up.

               
                             PARKER
               That is good news, milady.

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Oh and apparently England won the football 
               last night.
 
               
                             PARKER
               Yes! Eng-er-land! (his hands go off 
               the steering wheel and the car begins 
               to move to one side)
 
                             FERMAT AND ALAN
               Whoa!

                             LADY PENELOPE
               Calm down, Parker.

               
                             PARKER
               Yes, milady. Sorry, milady.

               Come on, baby. Out you jump. (Turns 
               to her teenage son who has a pan stuck 
               on
 
               his head) Wait till your father hears about this, panhead! They 
               are walking toward the hospital
 
               entrance when she sees the lights of Thunderbird 2 Aliens!

               
                             PANHEAD
               Even better! It's the Thunderbirds!
 
               
               
                             VIRGIL
               OK, lock it up. Let's go. Let's move 
               it. Hey, we need some help over here.

               Mission complete. Thunderbird 1 we are

               Mullion walks away from the others and fires a tracking goo at 
               Thunderbird 1.

               dallied with the mortals,
 
               they return to Olympus. And so I follow.

               
                             PARKER
               Pardon me, milady. Approaching Tracy 
               Island. And radar indicates we have 
               some company.
 
               
               Thunderbird 1 and 2 pull up next to Lady Penelope's flying car 
               and Scott waves at Alan before Alan
 
               turns to look at Thunderbird 2 where his father salutes at him. 
               Thunderbird 1 then does a barrel roll
 
               around Thunderbird 2 before they both jet off toward the island, 
               leaving Lady Penelope's car behind.
 
               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Now, that's showing off.

               
                             ALAN
               I wish that was me.

               I'm about to run post flight checks, 
               Mr Tracy. Anything I sh-sh-sh-
 
               Anything you want to tell me?

               
                             JEFF
               Brains, I noticed a build-up of vibration 
               on Thunderbird 2, followed by illumination 
               of the number 5
 
               engine out light.

               
                             BRAINS
               Okay, Mr. Tracy, I'll ch-ch-ch-study

               Dad!

                             JEFF
               Alan! Let me look at you. He hold Alan 
               at arm's length and then looks him over. 
               He then looks
 
               over and sees his older sons approaching. Ah oh look out.

               Onaha, it smells delicious. I am starved.

               So Dad, I saw the mission on TV. It 
               looked dangerous.
 
               
                             JEFF
               Saving lives is a dangerous business.

                             ALAN
               Do you think the fire was caused by 
               thermal up draughts? I mean that would 
               explain the-- (Jeff

               I want to hear about school.
 
               
                             ALAN
               School's boring. Plus I've been thinking, 
               maybe I could be home-educated now. 
               That way, I could
 
               sit in on missions from time to time. What do you think?

               
                             JEFF
               No short cuts, Alan. No school, no rockets. 
               Say, why aren't you wearing your retainer?

               up my keister.

               Well that's the first thing I did, Sprout! 
               It's not my first day in a Thunderbird 
               you know.

               Yeah, keep Alan away from the ships, 
               he's a hazard.
 
               
                             JEFF
               Okay, that's enough. Pass the salad.

               That wasn't Fiji that was Istanbul.
 
               
                             VIRGIL
               No, no, Istanbul was the earthquake.
 
               
                             SCOTT
               Yeah well, nothing compares to Argentina.

               I'll be right there. It seems the fire 
               at the oil rig was no accident.
 
               
                             JEFF
               Any suspects?

               Alan's back! (looks at Kyrano) Hey, Dad.

               
                             JEFF
               When are those two going to get along?

               thing.

               
                             JEFF
               What sort of thing?

                             JEFF
               Alan and Tintin? I didn't see that one 
               coming.
 
               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               No, you wouldn't.

               
                             JEFF
               Have a safe flight home, Penny.

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Thanks, Jeff.

               
               Scene switches to Fermat and Alan playing around in Thunderbird 
               1 like they are really about to fly it
 
               into a mission.

               
                             ALAN
               Okay, Fermat. Run pre-flight checks.
 
               
               
                             FERMAT
               Right. Hydraulic systems are green.

                             ALAN
               Couldn't hurt to just fire up the instruments.
 
               
               
                             FERMAT
               No wait, Alan! That's the(Thunderbird 
               1 begins to start up and Fermat shouts) 
               Wrong switch!
 
               
               
                             ALAN
               Oh God. (There is loud beeping coming 
               from the control panel and the boys 
               can't shut down
 
               Thunderbird 1) Oh, could this day get any worse?

               
               Scene briefly changes to Jeff getting an alert in his office.

               (his face appears on a monitor in Thunderbird 
               1) Alan, my office. Now. (Thunderbird 
               1 shuts
 
               down)

               
                             FERMAT
               It just did.

               The boys walk out of Thunderbird 1 and are walking toward the 
               silo door. Fermat is running his hand
 
               on the nosecone of Thunderbird 1.

                             ALAN
               I can't believe it.

               
                             FERMAT
               We're so b-b-busted.

               
               Fermat's hand touches the goo that Mullion fired at Thunderbird 
               1 earlier.
 
               
                             FERMAT
               Look at this.

               
                             ALAN
               What is it?

               
                             FERMAT
               Looks like some sort of, gallium-electrolyte 
               compound.
 
               
                             ALAN
               We gotta get out of here.

               
               Scene changes to Alan walking into his dad's office.

               
                             ALAN
               Dad, I know you're mad. I shouldn't 
               have been in the ship, but if you just 
               give me a minute to
 
               explain- (Jeff cuts him off)

               
                             JEFF
               You're damn right you shouldn't have 
               been in there!
 
               
                             ALAN
               But, nothing happened Dad. I had it 
               under control.
 
               
                             JEFF
               Under control? Do you have any idea 
               of the importance of secrecy in our 
               operation? You fired up
 
               a Thunderbird without activating the anti-detection shield. You 
               put everyone in danger when you act
 
               selfishly. You want to be part of the team, you have to play 
               by the rules. You understand? (Alan just
 
               looks at him) Do you?

               
                             ALAN
               Yeah, I understand. I understand you 
               don't want me to be a Thunderbird. You 
               don't want me to
 
               do anything. You won't even listen to me when I'm trying to tell 
               you something important!
 
               
                             JEFF
               I've heard enough. You're grounded for 
               the rest of spring break.
 
               
                             ALAN
               But, Dad!

               
                             JEFF
               Bottom line, Alan. You need to grow 
               up.
 
               
                             ALAN
               Then let me. (he stalks toward the door 
               before whispering,) Please!
 
               
               Jeff is starting at two old family photos on his desk when the 
               video phone rings.
 
               
                             JEFF
               Hey, John. I was just about to turn 
               in. What can I do for you?
 
               
                             JOHN TRACY
               I could sure use a pizza. You know a 
               place that delivers?
 
               
                             JEFF
               30 minutes or it's free, right? Anything 
               else on your mind?
 
                             JOHN
               Well, got a forest fire in Vladivostok, 
               a typhoon heading for Singapore. What's 
               happening on
 
               Planet Tracy?

               
                             JEFF
               Alan's home for spring break.

               
                             JOHN
               Yeah, I thought I could see a storm 
               brewing in your region.
 
               
                             JEFF
               Teenagers.

               
                             JOHN
               Well, we've all been there. And Dad, 
               you've done a great job since Mom died.
 
               
               
                             JEFF
               Thanks, John. Keep an eye on that typhoon 
               for us. And, uh, I'll call Vladivostok, 
               see if they need
 
               help with that fire.

               
                             JOHN
               FAB, Dad. Sleep tight.

               
               Fermat is down with his father in the Thunderbirds hanger.

               
                             FERMAT
               Morning, Dad.

               
                             BRAINS
               Hey, son. There's something I'd like 
               to sh-sh-sh- Here, take a look.
 
               
                             FERMAT
               The neural-net control system?

               
                             BRAINS
               It's great to have you back. I bet you 
               didn't think spring break was going 
               to be this w- w-fun.
 
               Watch this.

               
               Brains uses the neural-net control system to lift up the phone 
               in front of him. It also lifts up the Mole
 
               which is stationed behind his workplace.

               
                             BRAINS
               And that tiny phone lifts up, perfect.
 
               
               
                             FERMAT
               Dad?

               
               The neural-net control system short circuits.

               
                             BRAINS
               N-n-n- Almost perfect.

               
                             FERMAT
               There's something I want to talk to 
               you about.
 
               
                             BRAINS
               Oh. Right. Oh. OK, right. You're having 
               problems with a g-g-g-chi-chi-chi-wo-wo-female?
 
               
               
                             FERMAT
               N-no! No. Alan and I found some sort 
               of gallium compound on the nosecone 
               of Thunderbird
 
               1.

               
                             BRAINS
               We should check that out st-st-st-immediately.
 
               
                             FERMAT
               That'd be g-g-g-swell!

               Scene skips to Alan skipping rocks at the beach. The camera 
               follows one rock and it leads to a
 
               telescope coming out of the water. The telescope is connected 
               to the Hood's submarine.
 
               
                             MULLION
               The island is in sight.

               
                             THE HOOD
               Transom, I need you.

               
                             TRANSOM
               Yes, sir. Sir, our cloaking device has 
               evaded their detection
 
               systems. We have a positive visual from the tracking solution 
               on Thunderbird 1.
 
               
                             THE HOOD
               Mullion.

               
                             MULLION
               Sir? Sir, armed and ready. Shall I target 
               the main structure?
 
               
                             THE HOOD
               Why would I want to destroy what will 
               soon be mine? One of the principle tenets 
               of Eastern
 
               martial arts is to use your opponent's strength against him.
 
               
               
               The Hood uses his powers to keep Mullion in place

               
                             MULLION
               (trying to move and realizing that he 
               can't) This is ridiculous.
 
               
                             THE HOOD
               It will be almost impossible to force 
               the Thunderbirds to leave their island. 
               On the other
 
               hand, it requires no effort at all to let them go.

               
               The Hood stops using his powers on Mullion and Mullion falls 
               over.
 
               
                             THE HOOD
               The Thunderbirds' purpose is to rescue. 
               All we need do is give them the victim. 
               (The Hood
 
               looks at Transom) Commence targeting.

               
                             TRANSOM
               Straightaway, sir. Target acquisition 
               of Thunderbird 5 is locked.
 
               
                             THE HOOD
               Fire.

               
               Transom fires a missile at Thunderbird 5.

               
               Scene switches to John on Thunderbird 5 when suddenly alarms 
               start to go off around him.
 
               
               
                             JOHN
               What the?

               
               
                             JOHN
               Thunderbird 5 to Tracy Island. Mayday! 
               Mayday!
 
               
               Missile hits Thunderbird 5 and John is blow back into a wall 
               from the explosion. The scene then
 
               switches over to Tracy Island.

               
               Brains and Fermat run into Jeff's office.

               
                             BRAINS
               Switching to Command and Control Center. 
               (Brains uses a palm scanner to activate 
               Command
 
               and Control)

               
               The submarine is briefly showed getting closer to the island.
 
               
               
               Jeff, Scott, Virgil, and Gordon come running into Command and 
               Control.

                             THE HOOD
               Oh how rude of me. You can call me The 
               Hood. Now, listen, Mr. Tracy. We won't 
               be
 
               negotiating. I'm going to use the Thunderbirds to rob the largest 
               banks in the world, starting with the
 
               Bank of London. The world's monetary system will be thrown into 
               chaos and the Thunderbirds held
 
               responsible.

                             SCOTT
               You'll never get away with it.

               
                             JEFF
               Why the Thunderbirds?

               
                             THE HOOD
               An eye for an eye, Mr. Tracy.

               
                             JEFF
               An eye for an eye?

               
                             THE HOOD
               Perhaps you've forgotten me, but surely 
               you remember saving the life of my brother,
 
               
               Kyrano?

               
                             KYRANO
               Turns to the video phone that the Hood 
               has been using to communicate with Thunderbird 
               5.
 
               I'm sorry, Mr. Tracy. I thought he was dead.

               
                             THE HOOD
               (Laughs and then turns to the guards)Take 
               them away.
 
               
                             MULLION
               Yes, sir.

               
               The kids lift their heads back up into the vents

               
                             ALAN
               Whoa.

               
                             TINTIN
               That makes The Hood my uncle?

               
                             FERMAT
               Every family has a black sh-sh- a black 
               sh- (Sneezes and everyone in the Command 
               and
 
               Control room looks around, while Brains pretends that it was 
               him that sneezed.)
 
               
                             FERMAT
               (Turns to look at Alan) This room's 
               murder with my allergies.
 
               
               The kids stick their heads back out the vent and look at what 
               is going on in the Command and Control
 
               room.

               
                             THE HOOD
               You left me to die that day. You may 
               have broken my body but you've no idea 
               how
 
               powerful my mind has become. And now you will suffer, as I suffered, 
               waiting for a rescue that will
 
               never come. (Makes a motion for Transom to cut off the call with 
               Thunderbird 5.)
 
               
                             JEFF
               Wait! (Video link cuts dead and then 
               the scene cuts to Thunderbird 5.) Scott, 
               status report.
 
               
                             SCOTT
               CO2 levels are rising.

               
                             JEFF
               Alright, wire the oxygen scrubber to 
               the emergency batteries. Clean the air.

               How long will that give us?

                             JOHN
               About four hours.

               
               Scene switches back to the kids looking into the Command and 
               Control room. Fermat begins to start
 
               sneezing again. Tintin and Alan put their hands over his nose 
               and mouth to try and muffle the sound.)
 
                             MULLION
               Someone's there. (Mullion walks over 
               to the ceiling, he is standing directly 
               below where
 
               they are. The kids are trying to leave the vents when his hand 
               shoots up through the ceiling and grabs
 
               Alan's ankle. He lets go after Tintin bites his hand and he gasps 
               in pain.)
 
               
               The children are now talking loudly and everyone in the Command 
               and Control room can hear them.
 
               
                             TINTIN
               Run! Run!

               
                             ALAN
               No, jump! We can get through to the 
               silos.
 
               
               The children scream as they fall down a tunnel leading to the 
               silos. And the scene switches to the
 
               Command and Control room.

               
                             THE HOOD
               Apparently, the island is not as secure 
               as you thought. (he looks at the old 
               photos that were
 
               on Jeff's desk. Children! Did you find any children?

               
                             TRANSOM
               (Using the security cameras to see into 
               the silos) Here they are. Thunderbird 
               2 silo, in the
 
               loading arm.

               
               Mullion and two other guards run off to get them

               
                             THE HOOD

                             TINTIN
               The doors! You guys, let's go! C'mon
 
               
               
                             FERMAT
               Go! Go!

               
               The children reach the door that leads to Thunderbird 3's silo 
               just as it closes.
 
               
                             ALAN
               This way. (They run toward the still 
               closing Thunderbird 1 silo door.)
 
               
               
                             FERMAT
               (After the door closes before they can 
               get through it) No!
 
               
                             TINTIN
               They've got us trapped. What now?

               
                             FERMAT
               If we can get to the Thunderbird 1's 
               silo, we can escape through the service 
               tunnel. But we
 
               need a plan, Alan.

               
                             ALAN
               I'll use the Thunderizer on the door.
 
               
               
               guards are in the elevator heading down to come get them)

               You guys get the goons with the Firefly!
 
               
                             FERMAT
               Alan! This equipment is only to be used 
               in an emergency. (Alan and Tintin give 
               him looks) I
 
               guess this qualifies.

               
                             ALAN
               Yeah.

               
                             TINTIN
               Here they come. Fermat, can you drive 
               this thing?
 
               
                             FERMAT
               Uh, no.

               
                             TINTIN
               Hey, watch it!

               
                             FERMAT
               I took microbiology, not driver's ed. 
               Set the pressure to maximum.
 
               
                             TINTIN
               Got it.

               
                             MULLION
               (The guards walk out of the elevator 
               and see Tintin pointing the Firefly 
               at them) Retreat!
 
               (They fall over and have trouble getting up due to the slipperiness 
               of the stuff fired at them)
 
               
                             TINTIN
               Let's move it.

               
                             ALAN
               That's it. Time to thunderize. (After 
               the door has a hole cut in it.) Yes!

               Get 'em!

               
                             ALAN
               Where's Fermat?

               
                             TINTIN
               Fermat!

                             FERMAT
               Coming!

               
                             ALAN
               Hurry up. (the children are now in Thunderbird 
               1's silo) What were you doing back there,
 
               
               Fermat?

               
                             FERMAT
               I had an-n-n idea.

               
                             ALAN
               Just try and keep up, okay? I'll open 
               the tunnel. We gotta keep moving. (Alan 
               types in a pass
 
               code)

               
                             ALAN
               (To Tintin and Fermat) Go back. Yell 
               when you see them coming. (tries another 
               pass code)
 
               
               Alan turns away from the door for a moment and the camera can 
               see The Hood on the other side of
 
               the door. Alan turns back and sees him.

               
                             THE HOOD
               Alan. You can run if you want. Were 
               you surprised to hear what your father 
               did to me? It is
 
               frightening when we realize our parents aren't perfect. But perhaps 
               you already suspected that about
 
               your father. Why did he build these magnificent machines? Do 
               you suppose it was guilt? Because he
 
               let your mother die. (Alan shakes his head no) Open the door, 
               Alan. (Alan continues to shake his head
 
               no) (The Hood chuckles at his refusal) Open, the, door. (He tries 
               to use his powers on Alan but nothing
 
               happens)

               
                             ALAN
               (Shouting to Tintin and Fermat) We can't 
               go this way. He's there.
 
               
               The Hood uses his powers to open the door and Mullion and the 
               other guards appear at the other
 
               doorway, leaving the children trapped.

               
                             FERMAT
               No! (he falls slightly) Ow. What are 
               we gonna do, Alan?
 
               
                             ALAN
               I don't know. I'm thinking, okay? (Alan 
               looks at the control panel behind the 
               Hood and sees a
 
               button that will open part of the floor under Thunderbird 1. 
               Keep backing up. I've got an idea. (Alan
 
               takes his rock launcher from the pouch it is in on the back of 
               his pants. and fires it at the button, but
 
               misses.)

               
                             TINTIN
               That's your idea?

               
                             THE HOOD
               It's not me you're angry at, Alan.
 
               
               
                             ALAN
               It's not you I'm aiming at. (Alan fires 
               another rock and this time hits the 
               button and the floor
 
               drops out from underneath Tintin, Fermat, and Alan. Tintin, Fermat, 
               and Alan scream as they fall.)
 
               
                             THE HOOD
               Get them!

               
                             MULLION
               Transom, fire up Thunderbird 1. And 
               set it on broil!
 
               
               The kids look behind them while they are falling down the tunnel 
               and see the flames coming from
 
               Thunderbird 1 behind them. Tintin screams even louder. The tunnel 
               opens up and leads to the ocean.
 
               
               Back in Command and Control

               
                             TRANSOM
               No sign of them.

               
                             MULLION
               Of course not, the little brats went 
               up like firecrackers. Pop, pop, pop! 
               (laughs at Brains and
 
               Brains moves to punch him.)

               
                             THE HOOD
               Don't, give him the satisfaction, Professor. 
               This is taking too long. Pick out the 
               equipment
 
               you need to get into those banks and load it into Thunderbird 
               2. No more delays.
 
               
                             MULLION
               Yes, sir.

               Scene switches to the children trying to get onto the beach, 
               they are getting knocked over by a couple
 
               of waves. Fermat is coughing and spluttering.

               
                             FERMAT
               How about a little warning next time 
               you pull a stunt like that?
 
               
                             ALAN
               Relax, Fermat. It's just a little water.
 
               
               
                             FERMAT
               I could have drowned.

               
                             ALAN
               You mean you can't swim?!

               
                             FERMAT
               I repeat, I could have drowned.

               
               Scene switches to the boys ringing out their shirts, they are 
               both in their boxers.
 
               
                             ALAN
               I said I was sorry, Fermat. Just put 
               this behind us, Okay? We gotta watch 
               each other's backs.
 
               Nice drawers.

               
                             FERMAT
               Thank you.

               
                             TINTIN
               Boo!

               
                             ALAN
               No, c'mon Tintin, stay there.

               
                             TINTIN
               You're worse than a couple of girls. 
               Hurry up and get dressed. (To Fermat) 
               Those are nice
 
               drawers!

               
               Scene switches to the children walking along one of the beaches.
 
               
               
                             FERMAT
               Data from Tracy Island is sent to Thunderbird 
               5 via satellite, right?
 
               
                             ALAN
               Right.

               
                             FERMAT
               So, there's a miniscule possibility 
               that if we reach the satellite station, 
               we could
 
               
                             ALAN
               Blow it up!

               
                             FERMAT
               No, we could hack in to it and give 
               control back to Thunderbird 5.
 
               
                             ALAN
               Good thinking, Fermat. Alright, let's 
               do it. (Alan starts drawing the plan 
               in the sand) Here's the
 
               plan. We're here, right?. So, we go along the shore around the 
               base of the mountain to the access road,
 
               here. And then up to the transmitter. So what do you think?
 
               
               
                             TINTIN
               Good. Except that we're here, not there, 
               and the transmitter is there, not here. 
               We have to go
 
               through the jungle.

               
                             FERMAT
               But that's f-f- off limits.

                             TINTIN
               It's gonna be dangerous.

               
                             ALAN
               I'm in. (All three of them put their 
               hands together) We gotta get up there 
               fast! All our folks are
 
               in trouble and if The Hood gets off the island

               
                             FERMAT
               Actually, he's not going anywhere for 
               now.

               The guidance processor for Thunderbird 
               2. You can't take off without it. Fermat 
               you're a genius.
 
               How'd you get this?

               
                             FERMAT
               Alan, my friend, what you don't know, 
               can't hurt you.

               where Parker is out cleaning a car
 
               when the car phone rings.

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Parker?

               
                             PARKER
               Milady?

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               We have an emergency.

               
               Scene switch to Lady Penelope's bathroom

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               What a charming fellow.

               
               Someone knocks on the door.

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Come in.

               
               Parker enters Lady Penelope's bathroom, with tea, where she is 
               up to her shoulders in bubble bath.
 
               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Have a look at this, Parker. (There 
               is a computer monitor near her feet.) 
               He, and this
 
               woman, poor girl, both work for this man, known as The Hood.
 
               
               
                             PARKER
               Sounds like an alias, milady.

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Quite right, Parker. Real name: Trangh 
               Belagant. Assumed dead when
 
               
               his illegal diamond mine collapsed in the jungles of the Malaya. 
               (takes a sip of tea) Oh, perfect, Parker.
 
               The Thunderbirds rescued over 500 mine workers, including Mr. 
               Belagant's brother.
 
               
                             PARKER
               Milady, that's Mr. Tracy's loyal manservant, 
               Kyrano.
 
               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               How's my schedule, Parker?

               
                             PARKER
               You have clay pigeon shooting with Lord 
               Marlborough, a benefit gala for the 
               Institute of the
 
               Blind, and incidentally there's a typhoon bearing down on Singapore.
 
               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               I suppose that's urgent.

               
                             PARKER
               Yes, milady. There was also a bridge 
               collapsed in Buenos Aires and a volcanic 
               eruption in
 
               Jakarta.

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               The Thunderbirds haven't responded?
 
               
               
                             PARKER
               No, milady. And the media is awash in 
               speculation vis--vis their whereabouts. 
               Parker turns on
 
               the news.

               
                             CHUCK
               Over to Lisa Lowe.

               
                             LISA LOWE
               Chuck, disaster after disaster around 
               the world today and still no sight of 
               the Thunderbirds.
 
               Typhoon Jago hit land in Singapore just one hour ago and thousands 
               have been left homeless by a
 
               volcano in Jakarta. Only the Thunderbirds have the incredible 
               machines
 
               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               I think it's time to send the emergency 
               signal, Parker.
 
               
                             PARKER
               I fear you're not wrong, milady.

               
                             LISA LOWE
               Lisa Lowe. Back to you, Chuck.

               
               Parker hits the top of the tea pot and a light pops out and begins 
               to blink and beep. Back on Tracy
 
               Island a similar light begins to flash and bleep but Brains is 
               unable to get up to get to it because he is
 
               tied up.

               I'm telling you, Fermat, it was like 
               The Hood was inside my head back there.
 
               
               
                             FERMAT

                             ALAN
               Maybe he can read minds or control minds 
               or something.
 
               
                             FERMAT
               Don't be silly, Alan. Everything can

                             ALAN
               I'm just trying to figure out his weakness.

                             FERMAT
               My Achilles heel is actually my Achilles 
               heel. It's got a blister the size of 
               a basketball. Tintin!
 
               Can we s-s-

                             FERMAT

               Any word?

               
                             PARKER
               Nothing, milady.

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Right. You will have to tell Lord Marlborough 
               that I've broken my shooting arm. We
 
               
               shall send the Institute for the Blind a dozen guide dogs. And 
               bring the car around.
 
               
                             PARKER
               Yes, milady.

               The Thunderbirds appear to be in a spot 
               of trouble. And I don't like that. Let's 
               go,
 
               Parker.

               
               They get in the car and it takes off flying toward Tracy Island.

               Ready for launch. We'll use this to 
               get into the vaults.
 
               
                             THE HOOD
               Subtle, as usual, Mullion.

               
                             MULLION
               I didn't realize we'd be getting points 
               for style. We're robbing banks, remember.
 
               
               
               The Hood uses his power on Mullion and Mullion gasps.

               
                             THE HOOD
               Don't worry. You'll get your money.

               An alarm suddenly goes off in Thunderbird 2.

               
                             MULLION
               What's going on?

               
               
                             TRANSOM
               It's the guidance processor.

               
                             MULLION
               What's wrong with it?

               
                             TRANSOM
               There isn't one.

               
                             MULLION
               Aaargh!

               
                             THE HOOD
               Clever Alan. It's the children. They 
               have it.
 
                             MULLION
               No way. They're dead. No one could live 
               through something like that.
 
               
                             THE HOOD
               I did. Get them, Mullion. Take whatever 
               you need. And make sure you get the 
               guidance
 
               processor before you lose your temper.

                             FERMAT
               Alan, don't you think Tintin is blossoming?
 
               
               
                             ALAN
               Blossoming?! What's that supposed to 
               mean?
 
               
                             FERMAT
               Come on, Alan. You've a c-crush on her.
 
               
               
                             ALAN
               You've got to be kidding. I mean, she's. 
               She's not that bad, I guess.
 
               
                             TINTIN
               (Reaches the top of the mountain) Okay, 
               guys, take five.
 
               
                             FERMAT
               (Still finishing climbing up the mountain)Five

                             TINTIN
               Guys?

               
               Alan and Fermat reach the top of the mountain, they are both 
               puffing and panting. Tintin smiles at
 
               them before she sees a scorpion on Alan's shoulder.

               
                             TINTIN
               Don't move.

               
                             FERMAT
               (Sees scorpion when he stands up next

                             ALAN
               What is it?

               
                             TINTIN
               Hexdrotilous scorpion.

               
                             ALAN
               Is that dangerous?

               
                             FERMAT
               .025 milligrams of its venom is fatal.
 
               
               
                             ALAN
               So, dangerous is in fact an understatement.
 
               
               
               Tintin uses powers just like her uncle, The Hood, to lift the 
               scorpion off of Alan's shoulder and lets it
 
               fall to the ground.

               Tintin, what was that?

               
                             TINTIN
               Let's get going.

               Hey! She has the same powers as her 
               uncle, The Hood.
 
               
                             FERMAT

               an explosion near Scott and Gordon.

               Don't rush me Alan. This is very d-delicate

               Yea- Maybe, but I'll need something

               and Fermat see Alan's retainer and share a look) What?

               
               Alan yells as Tintin and Fermat pull out the metal part of Alan's 
               retainer.

               I think it was some sort of apology.

               Tintin looks up and sees a bees hive.

               
                             MULLION
               Straight ahead.

               
               Tintin uses a limb to hit the bee hive at Mullion and the other 
               two guards. Mullion falls off the car
 
               and into a puddle while being stung by bees. The scene cuts back 
               to Alan and Fermat in the junkyard
 
               attaching something to the back of the hoversled so that all 
               three of them can fit on it.
 
               
                             FERMAT
               It's gonna make this thing hard to control 
               you know.
 
               
                             ALAN
               No problem.

               
                             FERMAT
               You really must be careful not to exceed 
               four bars of boost or else
 
               
                             ALAN
               I said no problem.

               
                             TINTIN
               Guys, let's go we've got to get out 
               of here. What is this?
 
               
                             FERMAT
               It's a hoversled.

               
                             ALAN
               It's our ticket out, unless you've got 
               a better idea.
 
               
                             TINTIN
               Yeah, let's wait for Lady Penelope, 
               like your dad said.
 
               
                             FERMAT
               (Hands Tintin the seat to the hoversled) 
               Here.
 
                             ALAN
               Great plan. Let's sit and wait to get 
               caught. I say we do something. Now! 
               Right, Fermat?
 
               
                             FERMAT
               Actually, I agree with Tintin. I don't 
               think this is s-s-safe.
 
               
                             ALAN
               You don't think anything is s s-safe.
 
               
               
                             FERMAT
               Just because I s-s-stutter doesn't mean 
               that I'm wrong. If we're a team, we 
               should make
 
               decisions as a team.

               
                             ALAN
               Do you guys want to sit here and take 
               a vote? Or do you want to get out of 
               here? Cuz I'm going.
 
               
                             TINTIN
               You can be a real jerk sometimes.

               
               Scene changes to Mullion looking up and seeing the kids escaping 
               on the hoversled.
 
               
                             MULLION
               (To the guards driving the car) Go! 
               Go!
 
               
                             TINTIN
               (After looking behind her and seeing 
               Mullion and the other guards in the 
               car getting closer to
 
               them) Oh, no!

               
                             MULLION
               Come on! Faster!

               
                             FERMAT
               Alan! You're going too fast!

               
                             ALAN
               I need more speed to get above the trees. 
               Hang on!
 
               
               Tintin and Fermat fall off the hoversled screaming and at Mullion's 
               feet.
 
               
                             ALAN
               What'd I tell you guys? (looks down 
               and sees Fermat and Tintin being captured.) 
               Oh, no.
 
               
               Scene switches to Mullion walking Tintin and Fermat to a door 
               in the Tracy house.
 
               
                             TINTIN
               What are you doing?

               
                             FERMAT
               Oh, no! Not the fridge!

               
               Fridge door opens to reveal Kyrano, Onaha, and Brains.

               
                             ONAHA
               Tintin!

               
                             BRAINS
               Hey son.

               
                             KYRANO
               Sweetheart, are you okay?

               
                             TINTIN
               I'm fine, Dad.

               
                             MULLION
               (Grabs Fermat away from Brains and has 
               him sit down on a container) Cool off, 
               kid! (he
 
               laughs evilly as he walks out of the fridge and closes the door 
               on the way out)
 
               Scene switch to Park and Lady Penelope approaching Tracy Island.
 
               
               
                             PARKER
               Tracy Island approaching, milady. Switching 
               to aqua mode.
 
               
                             LADY PENELOPE

                             PARKER
               Rib-tickling, milady.

               
               Scene switches to Transom and The Hood in Command and Control 
               getting an alarm that an aircraft is
 
               approaching Tracy Island.

               
                             THE HOOD
               What is it?

               
                             TRANSOM
               We have an unidentified craft approaching 
               the island at high speed.
 
               
               Scene switches to Alan climbing over a hill and seeing Lady Penelope's 
               car approaching.
 
               
                             ALAN
               Lady P!

               Phew! Somebody roll down a window. It's 
               getting a little hot in here.
 
               
                             VIRGIL

                             JEFF
               Stop it!

               
                             GORDON
               Come on, Dad. The situation's hopeless.
 
               
               
                             JEFF
               No, it's not. There's still time. We've 
               got people on the ground working for 
               us.

               Alan? He's just a kid!

               
                             JEFF
               He's a Tracy.

               
               Scene switches quickly to Alan running through the forest and 
               then to Lady Penelope and Parker
 
               walking up to the Tracy house

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               This doesn't look good, Parker.

               
                             PARKER
               No, milady.

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               That bougainvillea is absolutely parched, 
               and someone should do something about
 
               
               that hideous hammock.

                             THE HOOD
               (After seeing Lady Penelope and Parker) 
               Whom do we have here? Mullion.
 
               
                             MULLION
               I must warn you that I know judo, krai 
               magna, and tae kwon do.
 
               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               And I know Parker.

               
                             PARKER
               Milady.

               
                             MULLION
               (After Parker punches him in the face) 
               You've broken my nose.
 
               
                             PARKER
               Yes, that was very much the intention 
               of the maneuver.
 
               
                             TRANSOM
               (After she tries to attack Lady Penelope 
               and Lady Penelope pushes her over) Whoa!
 
               
               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               One tries so hard in life to sort things 
               out on an intellectual-slash-conversational 
               level.
 
               sometimes it's just not possible.

               
               Lady Penelope continues to fight Transom and Parker continues 
               to fight Mullion, the Hood is watching
 
               them.

               
                             PARKER
               (after Mullion threw him against a metal 
               cabinet) Shall I bring the car around, 
               milady?
 
               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Parker, have a bit of a lie-down.

               
                             PARKER
               (Sees Mullion behind Lady Penelope) 
               Excuse me, milady. (punches him and 
               after that has no
 
               effect he picks up a frying pan and hits Mullion)

               
               Transom goes back to fighting Lady Penelope and Mullion is fighting 
               Parker.
 
               
                             THE HOOD
               Ah, Lady Penelope! Of course he has 
               his palace. Why not his princess?
 
               
               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Flattery will get you nowhere. (after 
               she blocks the metal bar that Transom 
               was trying
 
               to hit her with) Ow! Have you any idea what a manicure costs 
               these days?
 
               
                             PARKER
               (Is pushing Mullion forward) Coming 
               through, milady.
 
               
               The camera quickly pans a little bit outside to show Alan hidden 
               behind some shrubs watching the
 
               fight.

               
                             PARKER
               (After the Hood uses his powers to throw 
               a sofa at them) Duck, milady!
 
               
                             ALAN
               He's weak. Using his power makes him 
               weak. (The Hood, having heard something 
               looks over
 
               toward where Alan)

               
                             THE HOOD
               You're formidable opponent Lady Penelope. 
               More than a match for most men.
 
               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               That's not saying much, then, is it?
 
               
                             THE HOOD
               (uses his powers to stop the punch that 
               Parker was about to throw at him) I 
               suggest you
 
               let us pass.

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Don't try your parlor games on me you 
               sad, little man. You've committed a 
               serious
 
               crime trespassing on this island. And in about (looks at Parker's 
               watch) four seconds, I'm going to get
 
               quite cross with you. (the Hood uses his powers to stop her foot 
               which was about to come up and kick
 
               him.)

               
                             THE HOOD
               (with his back still to Alan) How are 
               you, Alan? (he uses his powers on Parker 
               and Lady
 
               Penelope and they cry out in pain) (Alan moves to run back into 
               the jungle) I hope you don't think I'm
 
               going to chase you. (he uses his powers on Parker and Lady Penelope 
               and they cry out in pain again)
 
               You can make it stop, Alan. (Parker and Lady Penelope cry out 
               again) You have something that belongs
 
               to me.

               
                             PARKER
               Really, sir, don't mind me. This isn't 
               the first time my head's been pulverized. 
               And it's never
 
               done any real harm before. (The Hood once again uses his powers

               Stop! I'll give it to you. (throws the 
               guidance processor
 
               toward the pool) Fetch! (the Hood uses his powers to bring it 
               over to him before it can hit the water)
 
               
                             THE HOOD
               You made a match of it, Alan, I'll give 
               you that. (to Mullion and Transom) Put 
               them with the

               enough losing for one day.

               (trying to figure out how to open the

                             PARKER
               Thank you, milady. Unfortunately, I 
               fear I shall need a piece of wire to 
               access the mechanism.
 
               (Lady Penelope's hand goes up shirt to get her bra wire and everyone 
               turns around)
 
               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Will this suffice, Parker?

               
                             PARKER
               Most certainly, milady.

               
                             LADY PENELOPE

               Chuck, I'm here in Jubilee Gardens where 
               Thunderbird 2 has made an impromptu 
               landing,
 
               causing total panic in Central London. As far as we know there 
               has been no emergency call from this
 
               area so it's unclear why Thunderbird 2 would be active here at 
               all. I don't know if you can see this Chuck
 
               but Thunderbird 2 seems to be unloading some kind of machine.

               Sir, if we continue on our present course, 
               we'll sever the monorail's subterranean 
               supports.

               Ashes to ashes, diamonds to diamonds. 
               Lady Penelope. What an unpleasant surprise.
 
               
               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Don't be rude. I can't tell you what 
               a pleasure it would be to use my little 
               finger to pull
 
               this big trigger. Now, don't move!

               
                             THE HOOD
               Mullion. (uses his powers to knock the 
               gun from Lady Penelope's hand)
 
               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               That's not cricket.

               
                             THE HOOD
               I'm sorry. The only part of sport I 
               ever liked was winning.
 
               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               How ghastly.

               
               Scene changes to Alan and Jeff in Thunderbird 1.

               
                             ALAN
               Hey, Dad. That stuff The Hood said, 
               about you leaving him to die. He was 
               lying, right?
 
               
                             JEFF
               No. See, you can't save everyone, Alan. 
               It doesn't matter how hard you try or 
               how brave you are.
 
               It doesn't even matter if it's someone you love, someone you'd 
               give your life in a second to save. You
 
               just can't save everyone.

               
                             ALAN
               What was Mom like?

               
                             JEFF
               She was a lot like you. Come on, we've 
               got a job to do.
 
               
               Scene switches to Lady Penelope being handcuffed at the Bank 
               of London.
 
               
                             THE HOOD
               Finish her off, Mullion.

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Shame on you. I always despise a man 
               who delegates the important jobs. (sees 
               the
 
               look Mullion is giving her) Oh, dream on, sad act. (Mullion chuckles 
               and walks away.)
 
               
               Scene switches to Jeff, Alan, Tintin, and Fermat about to enter 
               the Bank of London when Parker pulls
 
               up.

                             JEFF
               Good timing, Parker.

               
                             PARKER
               Good afternoon Mr. Tracy.

               
                             JEFF
               Come with us.

               
                             PARKER
               My pleasure, Mr. Tracy.

               
               Scene switches to The Hood talking to Mullion and Transom.

               
                             THE HOOD
               The Thunderbirds. They're here. Kill 
               them all.
 
               
               Scene switches to Jeff, Alan, Parker, Tintin, and Fermat inside 
               the Bank of London.
 
               
                             JEFF
               Alan, you guys stay here with Parker. 
               I'm gonna go find Lady Penelope.
 
               
                             ALAN
               But what about The Hood? (Alan points 
               behind Parker) Look out, Parker! (When 
               Parker turns
 
               away Alan runs after his dad.)

               
                             PARKER
               Master Tracy!

               
                             FERMAT
               Look out, Parker!

               
                             PARKER
               Alright, that's enough of that.

               
                             MULLION
               (from behind Parker) Don't move. (Parker 
               motions for the kids to run forward 
               but Transom
 
               blocks them. Parker puts his hands up as if to punch her)

               
                             TRANSOM
               Go on, then.

               
                             PARKER
               No, sorry. I can't hit a lady.

               
                             TINTIN
               Allow me. (she kick Transom and runs 
               off, Transom chases her)
 
               
                             MULLION
               (To Fermat) I've been waiting to get 
               my hands on you brats.
 
               
                             PARKER
               And I've been waiting to get my hands 
               on you.
 
               
               They brawl for a few seconds before Mullion lands a good punch 
               on Parker.
 
               
                             PARKER
               Ow, now that was a punch.

               
                             FERMAT
               Parker, can we wrap this up?

               
                             PARKER
               What did you have in mind, Master Hackenbacker?
 
               
               
                             FERMAT
               Strategically speaking, the best odds 
               of success lie with the Parker Haymaker.
 
               
                             PARKER
               I concur. (they knock Mullion out)
 
               
               
               Scene changes to Jeff running into the room that Lady Penelope 
               is being held captive in
 
               
                             JEFF
               Penny!

               
                             PENNY
               Jeff, no!

               
                             THE HOOD
               Did you save them all this time, Jeff? 
               Or did you leave someone behind?
 
               
                             JEFF
               I didn't make you what you are.

               
                             THE HOOD
               It's not me you have to convince. (motions 
               his head toward the entrance of the 
               room
 
               where Alan is standing)

               
                             JEFF
               Leave my son out of this- (the Hood 
               uses his powers to throw Jeff into the 
               cage that Lady
 
               Penelope is handcuffed in)

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Jeff!

               
                             ALAN
               Dad! (Alan runs toward the closing cage 
               door and reaches it right as it slams 
               shut) Dad! Dad!
 
               
                             THE HOOD
               I'm disappointed in you, Alan. I thought 
               we were kindred spirits.
 
               
                             ALAN
               Well, we're not. I'm Jeff Tracy's son.
 
               
               
                             THE HOOD
               You certainly are. (Alan runs at him)
 
               
               
                             JEFF
               No!

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Alan no! (The Hood uses his powers to 
               throw Alan off to the side where he 
               slams
 
               into a wall)

               
                             JEFF
               Alan!

               
               The Hood looks dazed but then uses his powers to fly up to the 
               catwalk above the Mole. The scene
 
               then switches to Tintin being chased by Transom running into 
               a cage.
 
               
                             TRANSOM
               Come here, you little minx! (Tintin 
               jumps up on a bar and flips to the other 
               side while
 
               Transom runs into the wall) Ow!

               
                             TINTIN
               (Closing the cage door) Bye-bye.

               
               Scene switches back to the room with The Hood, Alan, Jeff, and 
               Lady Penelope.
 
               
                             JEFF
               Alan, stay back.

                             THE HOOD
               You want so desperately to walk in Daddy's 
               footsteps. (uses his powers to lift 
               Alan off the
 
               floor and makes him start choking himself with his own hands)
 
               
               
                             JEFF
               Let him go.

               
                             THE HOOD
               Did you really think you could challenge 
               me?
 
               
                             JEFF
               Let him go, please.

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Let him go.

               
                             JEFF
               Please! Let him go! (the Hood tightens 
               his hold of Alan and then releases him)
 
               
               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Alan! Are you all right?

               
                             JEFF
               Alan, get out. Run!

               
                             ALAN
               He's getting weaker. He can't last much 
               longer.
 
               
                             JEFF
               Neither can you! (Alan begins to climb 
               up the Mole to reach the Hood) Alan, 
               no! Look out! (The
 
               Hood starts the Mole with his powers and Alan has to jump and 
               grab the railing of the catwalk) Alan!
 
               
                             THE HOOD
               I'm glad you could be here to see this, 
               Jeff. (steps on one of Alan's hands 
               until he cries in
 
               pain and lets go)

               
                             THE HOOD
               Goodbye, Alan! (Steps on the other hand 
               and Alan yells in pain) (Tintin runs 
               into the room)
 
               
                             TINTIN
               No!

               
                             THE HOOD
               Ah, (uses his powers on her) (She uses 
               her powers on him as well) Oh!
 
               
               (The catwalk flips over making Alan safely on top and the Hood 
               dangling above the still active Mole.
 
               
                             THE HOOD
               Leave me, Alan. Leave me to die. (releases 
               one hand from the railing) Like your 
               father did.
 
               
                             ALAN
               I don't want to save your life. (the 
               Hood lets his other hand go, but Alan 
               grabs it) But it's what we
 
               do.

               
               Scene switches to The Hood, Mullion, and Transom being led to 
               a police car outside the Bank of
 
               London when Thunderbirds 1,2, and 3 fly above them.

               
                             THE HOOD
               See you soon, Jeff.

               
                             PARKER
               (To Lady Penelope as she climbs in the 
               car) Now, that was definitely showing 
               off.
 
               
               Scene changes to back at Tracy Island. Scott, Virgil, John, and 
               Gordon are playing in the pool. Jeff is
 
               grilling with Lady Penelope standing next to him. Fermat is getting 
               swimming lessons from his dad
 
               and Alan is watching.

                             VIRGIL
               Hey, Scott.

               
                             SCOTT
               Get him!

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               (To Jeff) What did you put in these 
               margaritas?
 
               
                             JEFF
               It's a Tracy secret.

               
                             BRAINS
               (To Fermat) That's my boy! One more 
               week and you're gonna be swimming like 
               a F-f-f-D-d-d-
 
               Sha-sha- sha-Aquatic creature.

               
                             ALAN
               Good job, Ferm.

               
                             TINTIN
               (To Alan as she spins around) So, what 
               do you think?
 
               
                             ALAN
               He's getting there. (Looks at Tintin) 
               Whoa, Tintin! You're just really, um, 
               blossoming.
 
               
                             TINTIN
               Ew! Did you say "blossoming"? (smiles 
               at him)
 
               
                             JEFF
               (rings a triangle) Gather around everybody. 
               I have an announcement to make. Tonight 
               is a special
 
               night. We're all together because of three very special people. 
               Fermat, Tintin, Alan. The world needs
 
               Thunderbirds and the Thunderbirds need you. (gives each of them 
               International Rescue pins)
 
               
                             FERMAT
               Mr. Tracy!

               
                             TINTIN
               Thank you, sir. (Camera pans quickly 
               over to Parker who is tearing up)
 
               
               
                             JEFF
               Congratulations, Alan. No short cuts. 
               You earned it. You all did.
 
               
                             PARKER
               (To Onaha and Kyrano) I'm not usually 
               an emotional man, but sometimes even 
               the toughest
 
               nut must crack.

               
                             VIRGIL
               (As all four of Alan's brothers walk 
               over to ruffle his hair and congratulate 
               him) Hey, way to go,
 
               sprout!

               
                             JOHN
               That's my boy, Alan! That's my brother. 
               (Fermat and Alan are thrown into the 
               pool by Scott,
 
               John, Virgil, and Gordon who jump in after them)

               
                             JEFF
               (answering his phone after it rings) 
               Yes, Madam President. I see. Of course, 
               straightaway. Boys.
 
               Sorry, Penny. Duty calls.

               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Of course it does. And quite right too.
 
               
               
               Scene switches to all five Tracy boys lined up in their uniforms 
               about to go on a rescue mission. The
 
               older four are looking at Alan.

               
                             JEFF
               Thunderbirds are go!

               Scene switches to Lady Penelope and Parker in a pink pedal boat
 
               
               
                             LADY PENELOPE
               Fast as you can, Parker.

               
                             PARKER
               Certainly, milady.

               
               Credits Roll with music by Busted playing in the background
 
               
               
                             BUSTED
               Thunderbirds Are Go

               If someone evils coming round they should be frightened (frightened)

               down down.

               Kids are learning fast they know the t-birds kick some ass

               Be sure that there's no coming last cause you're on their side 
               (their side)
 
               
               It always looks so cool when spaceships come out of the pool
 
               
               You know that you'd just be a fool to be a bad guy (bad guy) 
               
               
               Cause now the boys are back in town no strings to hold them down
