  • (Dexter is walking backwards in his laboratory; he is seen wearing a belt with a red light on the buckle)
  • Dexter: !skrow ti, skrow tI .elbidrecni si siht, woW .snoitca nwo ym esrever nac I
  • (He backpedals by a robot holding a lever)
  • Dexter: .drawroF .hguone si taht, tobor, yakO
  • (As Dexter walks backwards, he becomes annoyed)
  • Dexter: !draworF !...rof, ydaerla thgirlA (gasps) .em ylliS (backwards laugh) .mehA (trying to talk normally) For-ward.
  • Robot: Forward.
  • (It moves the lever to the right; the arrow moves from "REVERSE" to "FORWARD"; a view of the belt is shown; the buckle turns from red to green; Dexter backpedals for a few moments, then walks ahead normally; he shakes)
  • Dexter: Wow. (starts running with arms raised) My Reverse Belt is a success! (he stops in front of the robot) I must make a note: In order to be understood, I must speak backwards so that it sounds as though I am speaking forward, or it is forward so that it sounds reversed?
  • Robot: Reverse.
  • Dexter: Aah! No, robot! Wait!
  • (The robot pulls the lever; Dexter's Reverse Belt buckle turns red)
  • Dexter: !tiaW !tobor, oN !haA ?desrever sdnuos ti taht os drawrof si ti ro...
  • (He gets angry; three white clouds flow out from the top of him)
  • Dexter: (normally) I mean for... ward!
  • Robot: Forward.
  • (It pulls the lever; Dexter's belt buckle turns green)
  • Dexter: Robot?
  • Robot: Yes, Dexter?
  • Dexter: Please remind me never to oil you again. (he walks away)
  • Robot: Yes, Dexter.
  • Dexter: Stupid robot. Who needs him? It is time I start looking out for (he falls off the edge of his lab) myse-e-e-e-lf!
  • (He looks below him and sees the floor, then resumes screaming)
  • Dexter: Reverse!
  • (He suddenly air brakes, then flies back up screaming in reverse; he gets near the top)
  • Dexter: For... ward.
  • (He again falls off)
  • Dexter: Reverse.
  • (He falls down)
  • Dexter: For... ward.
  • (He flies back up)
  • Dexter: Reverse.
  • (He falls down)
  • Dexter: For... ward.
  • (He flies back up)
  • Dexter: Reverse.
  • (He flies back up one last time then lands on the cliff)
  • Dexter: For...ward.
  • (The belt buckle turns green)
  • Dexter: Whew! All this thirst for knowledge sure makes a guy hungry. Time for a snack!
  • (In the kitchen, food is seen on the table; Dexter is seen on the other side feeling content; he burps, then laughs)
  • (The Reverse Belt activates; Dexter laughs, then burps in reverse; milk then flies out of Dexter's mouth and into the cup; he pulls a hoagie out of his mouth and places it on the plate; he picks up the cup and undrinks the milk; the Reverse Belt suddenly turns green; Dexter gets out of his chair and leaves the kitchen)
  • Dexter: Stupid robot must have blown a fuse. I had better get back to the lab and straighten things out.
  • (Dad walks in; the camera stops following Dexter and follows Dad)
  • Dad: Hey, Dex. Where's the fire? (laughs) Huh?
  • (He sees the hoagie on the table; Dad looks it with drool hanging from his mouth)
  • Dad: Hoagalicious!
  • (Back in the living room)
  • Dexter: Once I get to the lab, I'll--
  • (He bumps into Mom, who is standing over him holding a trash bag)
  • Mom: Oh, there you are, Dexter. Be a dear and take out the trash for your mother.
  • Dexter: But, Mom...
  • Mom: (angrily) The only "but" in this conversation is a spanked one, now get on it!
  • (Dexter takes the trash bag outside and hands it to the garbage truck driver; the Reverse Belt activates and Dexter backpedals into the house; Mom is seen dusting a bookshelf; the Reverse Belt turns green and Dexter runs out; Mom sniffs the air, looks around, shrugs, then goes back to dusting)
  • (Back outside, Dexter is taking the trash to the garbage truck driver; the Reverse Belt turns red and Dexter again backpedals into the house; Mom sniffs the air and sees her son holding the trash bag)
  • Mom: Dexter, I thought you said you were taking the trash outside!
  • Dexter: .did I
  • (He runs up the stairs, with the Reverse Belt reversing directions at the top and bottom steps; Dad walks onto the stairs holding on to the handrail; he appears to have an upset stomach)
  • Dad: Ugh... I don't feel so good. Oh...
  • (He notices Dexter running back and forth)
  • Dad: Dexter, what have I told you about running on the stairs?! Slow down, you're gonna hurt somebod--
  • (Dad suddenly loses his balance and tumbles down the stairs; he crashes into something; Dexter runs toward his room door, opens it and runs into his laboratory)
  • Dexter: (gasp) Dee Dee!
  • (The Reverse Belt activates; Dexter reverses out of his room and closes the door; the belt turns green and Dexter again opens his room door and runs in)
  • Dexter: Dee Dee!
  • (The Reverse Belt activates once more, with Dexter doing his actions in reverse)
  • Dexter: !eeD eeD
  • (For the third time, the Reverse Belt turns green; Dexter runs into his lab to show Dee Dee messing with the Reverse Belt's lever)
  • Dexter: Dee Dee!
  • Dee Dee: Hi, Dexter! (she pulls the lever, putting her younger brother in reverse) Bye, Dexter!
  • Dexter: !eeD eeD
  • (Dee Dee pushes the lever; Dexter is seen running toward her)
  • Dexter: She must be stopped, but how?
  • (Dee Dee pulls the lever, Dexter runs in reverse; he is then seen sweating backwards)
  • Dexter: The belt.
  • (In slow motion, he takes the Reverse Belt off)
  • Dexter: Freedom!
  • (He leaps onto the lever; the light turns red)
  • Dexter: You! What do you think you're doing?! Do you have any idea what trouble you have been causing? First, I lost my lunch, and then Mama's going to kill me, and Dada's probably in the hospital, and another thing...
  • Dee Dee: Hey, what's that?
  • (She walks over to the Reverse Belt and puts it on)
  • Dee Dee: Ooh, this is a pretty belt. What does it do, Dexter?
  • (Dexter slyly grins; fade to black, then in to Dee Dee falling back and forth while screaming; on the third falling, the camera follows Dee Dee to show Dexter pulling the lever)
