(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)
(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)
(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)
(Cut back to Dexter and Dee Dee, the former realizing the mistake he made)
(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)
(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!
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)
