• (Lighting strikes; quick flash to reveal a sign that reads "Public Library")
  • (Inside, a boy is seen shaking his head; pan over to the "X", "Y", and "Z" shelves; Dexter is seen getting a book; Dee Dee's pigtails slide in from the left and to the right; cut to a shelf with books; Dee Dee's pigtails slide in behind)
  • (Cut back to a view of the shelves; Dexter is at the rear getting another book; Dee Dee's pigtails slide in from the right and to the left, then back again)
  • (At the bookshelf; Dexter gets the "Math 2000" book and leaves; Dee Dee's pigtails slide from behind the books)
  • (As Dexter goes to a chair, Dee Dee's shadow is seen running from one shelf to the other; Dexter cracks open the book and starts reading; Dee Dee slides in from the bottom mouth agape)
  • Dee Dee: HI, DEXTER!
  • (Dexter recoils, then faces Dee Dee; she gets near him while holding a pink book with a cover that reads "Ponys")
  • Dexter: *whispering* Dee Dee, what are you doing here?
  • Dee Dee: I gots me a book on ponies! Wanna see?
  • (She opens the book and shows him two pages of ponies)
  • Dexter: *whispering* I have no time for pretty ponies. I am all reading for science! Now beat it.
  • Dee Dee: What?
  • Dexter: *whispering, jumping up in anger* Dee Dee, will you stop being so loud and get your book and get lost?!
  • Dee Dee: What? Speak up!
  • Dexter: *whispering, again jumping up in anger* Dee Dee, will you quit yelling? This is a library! You are to keep quiet!
  • (He lands then walks away; Dee Dee gives a side glance then shrugs; wipe up to Dexter and Dee Dee heading to the checkout counter)
  • Dexter: *whispering*Now Dee Dee, the head librarian is checking out books today, so will you please show some respect and keep your yap shut?
  • (They stop simultaneously; Dee Dee grabs the back of Dexter's shirt then points at his nose)
  • Dee Dee: Oh, yeah? Well, why should I?
  • Dexter: *whispering* Because Dee Dee, I have a reputation to uphold. For you see, I have been patron of the month for the past twelve months!
  • (Cut to a top-down view; pan up to reveal a picture of Dexter wearing a white dress shirt with a black bowtie; he is seen smiling with his eyes closed)
  • Dexter: *whispering* So if you would shut up, clam up, button your lip, close your cake-hole, and please be quiet so that everything will be hunky dory, okay? Now, come on!
  • (He scurries off to the left; Dee Dee looks at him cluelessly)
  • Dee Dee: Okay!
  • (Cut to the checkout counter; Ms. L, the librarian, is seen sitting contently; a tall shadow looms over her and she whistles; Dexter drops the stack of books on her counter)
  • Dexter: *whispering* Here are my selections for today, Ms. L.
  • Ms. L: My, my, Dexter. What a big stack you have. Why, Dexter, you're quite the little scholar.
  • (She pinches Dexter's cheek; he turns away shyly)
  • Dexter: *whispering* Aw, shucks.
  • Dee Dee: *slapping cheek* Oh, brother.
  • (Ms. L starts checking out the books)
  • Ms. L: You know, if you keep this reading up, you'll be the patron of the month all of next year too. I don't think even Einstein himself was such an avid reader as you, Dexter.
  • (Dee Dee reaches her hand up the stack of books and takes one of them down)
  • Ms. L: No television, no donuts for you. I bet it's just all study, study, study day and night. Well, Dexter, I think you're all set. There you go.
  • (She gives Dexter his stack of checked out books; he leaves; Dee Dee looks at the book she took)
  • Dexter: *whispering* Thank you, Ms. L. Come on, Dee Dee.
  • Dee Dee: Hey, Dex! There's no pictures in this book!
  • Dexter: *whispering, offscreen* Dee Dee! Come on!
  • Dee Dee: But you forgot...
  • Dexter: *whispering, offscreen* Dee Dee!
  • Dee Dee: You forgot to check out!
  • Dexter: *whispering, offscreen* Move it or lose it, sister!
  • (Fade to Dexter's lab; two giant stacks of books are seen; pan down to Dexter reading and writing one of them)
  • Dexter: Mm-hmm, mm-hmm.
  • (He yawns; Dee Dee pops up behind him)
  • Dee Dee: Hey, Dexter! Here's that book you forgot!
  • (She places the book on Dexter's head; he takes it down and opens it)
  • Dexter: Why, thank you, Dee Dee.
  • (He opens the book)
  • Dexter: More learning material...?
  • (He gasps and looks at the library stamp)
  • Dexter: No stamp?! This book has been illegally checked out!
  • (Zoom in to Dexter's conscious; Dexter is standing in front of a tall checkout counter with Ms. L, who is seen from the top, crying; her head then flies around Dexter; finally, Ms. L's head grows to immense size, towering over Dexter)
  • Ms. L: Oh, Dexter! How could you? Your actions have brought shame upon this library! For this, you shall be punished! You're banned from the library... FOREVER!
  • (She takes out a stamp with the word "BANNED" on it and hits Dexter in his head; he falls off the counter and to a deeper part of his subconscious, where many voices mock and ridicule Dexter; he falls into a book that reads Dante's Inferno, inside the book, Dexter lands on a book-like couch and is slapped by a red hand; a devil is seen laughing at him)
  • Devil: Welcome to library heck.
  • (He laughs evilly; back in reality, Dexter is seen in a corner while his stacks of books loom over him; the devil's laugh trails off)
  • Dexter: The book must be returned. Just do it!
  • (He grabs a pair of goggles, activates a bibliograph, and prepares a suction gun)
  • Dexter: Mission goggles, bibliograph, ultra suction cracker...
  • (He turns to point his suction toward the screen a lá James Bond; lightning strikes to the public library; it is nighttime)
  • (Cut to the rooftop; Dexter appears from the flash of lightning wearing a black bodysuit then sneaks off to the left; Dee Dee appears from the ladder wearing a bodysuit too; she flips, hops, and jumps over to Dexter; she spins on one foot then stops)
  • Dexter: Are you quite finished?
  • (Dee Dee nods "Yes"; Dexter shows her some rope)
  • Dexter: Now I am going in. You just lower me down on this rope and I return the book. And remember: This is a library mission, so keep quiet!
  • Dee Dee: *loudly, making "OK" hand sign* Okey dokey!
  • (Dexter looks away annoyed and sighs)
  • Dexter: Hold this.
  • (He hands Dee Dee one end of the rope and dives into the library; Dee Dee quickly grabs the rope to slow his fall)
  • Dee Dee: Back sure hurts!
  • (A butterfly flies in from the left; Dee Dee is dazzled by it; inside the library, Dexter comes to a stop)
  • Dee Dee: Pretty.
  • (She lets go of the rope and chases after the butterfly; inside the library, Dexter, still suspended in mid-air, watches as the rope falls down)
  • Dexter: Dee Dee?
  • (He starts running in mid-air, but ends up dropping to the floor; wipe to the bibliograph; it points straight; the blue rectangle lights up with "FOUND!" written on it; Dexter looks at the lobby straight ahead and chuckles; he sneaks between the shelves to get there)
  • (At the checkout counter, Dexter stops and thinks for a moment; he takes out his goggles and puts them on; the lasers are activated)
  • (Dexter prepares to evade the lasers; cut to the next scene; he is seen walking underneath them while whistling along to the background music; at the counter, he wipes sweat off his head and places the book in the return bin; Dee Dee suddenly pops out)
  • Dee Dee: Hi!
  • Dexter: *quietly* How did you...? Wha...? How did you get...? That's it! I've had it with your monkey business!
  • Dee Dee: But...
  • (Dexter is full of frustration)
  • Dexter: QUIET!!!
  • (His voice echoes throughout the library; cut to a wall; three red sound waves are seen hitting the poster, which slides up to reveal a noise alarm)
  • Computerized voice: *whispering* Warning. Noise level exceeded.
  • (Cut back to Dexter and Dee Dee, the former realizing the mistake he made)
  • Dexter: Whoops.
  • (Ms. L enters the library)
  • Ms. L: Intruders!
  • (Two large, burly men, named "Thug 1" and "Thug 2" respectively, walk up behind Ms. L)
  • Ms. L: Sic 'em, boys!
  • (Dexter and Dee Dee run away; Thug 1 and Thug 2 chase them)
  • (At a wall with multiple drawers, Thug 1 enters from the left, stops, then scratches his head; one of the drawers slide out to reveal Dee Dee; she and Thug 1 look at each other and Dee Dee quickly retreats; as Thug 1 looks inside, another drawer opens with Dexter sliding out; he retreats and Thug 1 looks inside; beneath that drawer, Dee Dee slides out and blows a raspberry at him; he looks there while Dexter appears in a drawer behind him and whistles at Thug 1; at this point, Thug 1 becomes frustrated and looks at the wall of drawers; out of nowhere, Dee Dee and Dexter hop out of his back pants pockets as if the pockets themselves were drawers)
  • (Dexter and Dee Dee run through the library while Thug 2 tails them; at a table, Dexter and Dee Dee are seen reading newspapers; Thug 2 runs by then runs off to the left; Dexter and Dee Dee look up, shake hands, look to their lefts, then run off)
  • (Cut to another aisle; Thug 2 is on the lookout for Dexter and Dee Dee, who both suddenly walk by disguised as books; Dexter has a mint green book cover that reads "Infinite Theory" while Dee Dee has a pink book cover that reads "Ballet History"; she is also seen in her everyday clothing)
  • Dexter: Yep, just books. Judge us by our looks 'cause we're just plain ol' books!
  • (Thug 2 looks bewildered and shrugs; cut to a bookshelf; Dexter and Dee Dee run in and stop; Dexter looks out for them)
  • Dexter: I think we lost them.
  • Dee Dee: Dexter, I'm tired of this game. I quit playing.
  • Dexter: "Quit"? What do you mean "quit"? It is too late for "quitsies" now, woman! We must fight!
  • (Dee Dee grabs Dexter's back and drags him with her)
  • Dexter: No...!
  • (Cut to Ms. L and Thugs 1 and 2; Dexter and Dee Dee are seen on the other end; Dee Dee is waving)
  • Dee Dee: Hey! Librari-ann! We quit! You win!
  • Dexter: Traitor!
  • Ms. L: What? Why, Dee Dee, thank you for apprehending your loudmouth brother. I see good things in your future. *to Dexter, unhappily* And as for you, Mr. Dexter...
  • (Dexter grumbles to himself and shakes; fade to Dexter reading Dee Dee and several other kids a story)
  • Dexter: And so, after Prince asked Mr. Grumpster to leave nicely, everyone in Snuggleville gave each other a warm, fuzzy hug. The end. ...Blech.
  • (Pan up to a picture of Dee Dee as the library patron of the month; fade to black)
