  • (Outside, there is a view of the Dexter family house; fade into Dexter's room; the bookcase moves up to reveal the entrance into Dexter's laboratory, with a metal door sliding to the right)
  • Narrator: Ladies and gentlemen, within this household, we find a normal, everyday secret lab of a normal, everyday, boy genius. But we have taken great pains to bring you a sneak peek into...
  • (Fade to the title card, which is read aloud by the narrator)
  • Narrator: The Lab of Tomorrow.
  • (After the opening credits, fade to Dad sitting in a lazy boy chair watching TV)
  • Narrator: In the lab of tomorrow, each member of the family will have a secret lab, each equipped with its own secret entrance.
  • (Dad holds up the TV remote and presses several buttons; he then glances off to the side as he is sent below the lazy boy chair, then falling through a tube)
  • Narrator: What kinds of wondrous inventions could dear old Dad be conjuring up in his lab of tomorrow?
  • (A hatch opens in the ceiling; Dad falls through and lands in a leather chair; in front of him is a high-definition TV; he raises the remote and turns it on)
  • Narrator: Some things never change.
  • (Wipe to Mom in the kitchen; she is seen washing dishes)
  • Narrator: After a hard day's work, Mom can sneak down into the depths of her own secret lab, where she'll most likely work twice as hard.
  • (Mom whistles conspicuously and climbs into the sink; she turns on the garbage disposal and slides down; in Mom's lab, she is seen getting a tan while an assistant hands her a drink; it then reveals four men doing her chores; one is doing laundry, the second is doing dishes, and both the third and fourth men are seen preparing dinner, with the man on the right brushing sauce on a roasted pig)
  • (Wipe to outside Dexter's room door; an LED display that reads "SECRET LAB" is over the door; Dee Dee pops in from the bottom)
  • Narrator: And to keep that pesky sister out of your own secret lab, we divised a secret lab entrance on her own.
  • Dee Dee: Ooh!
  • (She walks near the door and opens it, revealing a brick wall; Dee Dee runs straight into said wall; she falls down and the door closes)
  • Dee Dee: Ooh!
  • (She again opens the door and runs into the brick wall; the door closes once more; for the third time, Dee Dee opens the door and runs into the brick wall, with the door closing; fade to black)
  • (Fade in to Dexter's lab; he is seen turning a bolt with a wrench)
  • Narrator: Tired of all that arduous and laborous wrenching?
  • (Fade to a robot arm wrenching the bolt)
  • Narrator: Well, in the future, it will all be automated for you!
  • (Pull back to view a widget doing Dexter's work; Dexter himself is seen oiling the machine)
  • Narrator: Of course, it may require a small amount of maintenance.
  • (Dexter walks over to a ladder and climbs up; he then turns a valve)
  • (Wipe to Dexter in bed snoring)
  • Narrator: The scientist of tomorrow can't be bothered wasting time with the menial mundane task of getting ready for work in the morning. In the lab of the future, all of these tasks will be automated while he sleeps.
  • (A claw rolls in on two treads; Dexter's bed stands upright with the claw catching Dexter himself and the bed setting back down)
  • (The claw takes the still-sleeping Dexter into the bathroom where a toothbrush and toothpaste come out; the toothbrush brushes the side of Dexter's foot; a comb comes out and brushes Dexter's feet, with the toes wiggling)
  • (The claw then takes Dexter to his closet; it inserts Dexter's hands into his boots and puts his glasses on his behind)
  • (Wipe to Dexter, who is now awake and fully dressed, standing in front of his bookcase; he reaches for a cyan book and pulls on it; a set of books move over to reveal a red laser that scans Dexter's body shape)
  • Narrator: Keeping your parents from discovering your secret lab has never been easier with the new laser-guided shape detecting security system of the future.
  • (Inside Dexter's laboratory, a monitor loads up and shows a square with two small triangles underneath it, reading "DEXTER" as the name; two small boxes, both of which read "SHAPE RECOGNIZED" and "ACCESS GRANTED" appear, the latter blinking)
  • (Back in Dexter's room, the bookcase moves up and the metal door slides open; Dexter enters the lab; both the metal door and bookcase slide shut)
  • (Wipe to Mom dusting Dexter's bookcase; she knocks a book off, revealing the shape detector; it scans Mom's body)
  • Narrator: Even freak mishaps are easily avoided with the new shape-detecting syst-... Whoa!
  • (In the lab, a monitor is unable to recognize Mom's shape; it shows an hourglass with "OVERLOAD" in a box beneath it as lightning shoots across the monitor and the screen behaving erratically; outside, the shape detector springs out of its socket and puffs of gray smoke are coming out; Mom looks at the machine shocked)
  • Narrator: Er-hem! Ah, moving on...
  • (Wipe to a observatory-sized telescope; Dexter, seen on a small chair that moves up, adjusts it)
  • Narrator: Telescope technology will have advanced to a level where we will finally be able to see if there truly is life on other planets.
  • (As Dexter twists some knobs, the observatory doors open and the telescope expands out; Dexter looks inside the telescope, revealing a blurry image that focuses properly)
  • Narrator: Wait... Focus...
  • (The image clears to reveal a western film noir; Dexter is shocked, then looks back into the telescope and zooms out; it reveals an alien on Mars watching TV)
  • Alien: Put out that light!
  • (Dexter recoils; wipe to him sitting in front of a desktop computer)
  • Narrator: The function of using your computer's mouse will be totally automated with the simple push of a button.
  • (Dexter reaches over to the red button and pushes it; a white mouse comes out of the double doors and grabs ahold of the computer mouse)
  • Dexter: Uh, could you move it to the left, please?
  • (The mouse nods and drags the computer mouse to the left)
  • Dexter: A little bit more, please?
  • (The mouse does so)
  • Dexter: Not that far.
  • (The mouse pushes the computer mouse back to the middle of the mousepad)
  • Dexter: And, double click.
  • (The mouse pushes the left button on the computer mouse twice; Dexter reaches over to the mouse with a cheese wedge and feeds it to the mouse)
  • (Wipe to a dog on a computer screen walking on a conveyor belt; pull back to Dexter holding a string, which appears to be the virtual dog's leash, and walking on a conveyor belt himself)
  • Narrator: Now this truly is the lab of tomorrow: Modern in every way.
  • (Fade to Mandark sneaking into Dexter's lab)
  • Narrator: In the lab of tomorrow, the modern problem of archrivals sneaking into your lab to wreak havoc will be solved with the latest and most sophisticated of security system technology.
  • (A spotlight shines on Mandark; in front of him, a structure comes out like a jack-in-the-box and takes the form of a fly swatter; it then slaps Mandark, leaving him in a black outline; a broom comes out and sweeps Mandark away)
  • (Wipe to Dexter rubbing his head)
  • Narrator: To improve relations between himself and his computer, the modern scientist will fuse the computer with his brain. Side effects include minor headaches.
  • (Pan up to reveal Dexter with a cube-shaped brain; two tubes are seen to the left)
  • (Fade to black, then back in to a conveyor belt; Mandark is chasing Dee Dee, who is chasing a white, pink-maned unicorn on a string; pan through the machine itself, then to Dexter pumping with a bellow underneath his foot)
  • Narrator: New forms of energy have been foreseen in the future.
  • (The rope snaps; everything in the lab shuts down, leaving Dexter surrounded by darkness; he looks annoyed)
  • (Fade to several lab rats doing research; one of them is writing on a clipboard while the other is tinkering with a knob and lever)
  • Narrator: The lab rats of tomorrow will have increased intelligence to where they will be able to perform an advanced scientific experiments by themselves.
  • (The rat on the left pulls a lever; pan over to Dexter in a cage; with two electrodes pinned to him, he is zapped by electricity)
  • Narrator: Success!
  • (Cut to Dexter with a stain under his armpit)
  • Narrator: Tired of hot sweaty armpits from working?

  • (Dexter raises his arm; several flies gather around it, leaving Dexter in disbelief)
  • (Cut to several bottles and beakers sitting on a desk)
  • Narrator: In the lab of tomorrow, beakers and bottles have been replaced with...
  • (A white flash occurs; the bottles and beakers, while on the same desk, have changed locations)
  • Narrator: Bottles and beakers.
  • (Pull back to Dexter looking at the desk)
  • Dexter: Wait. That is not even funny!
  • Narrator: Of course it's funny.
  • (Cut to Monkey, who is revealed to be the narrator)
  • Monkey: I should know. Well, folks, I hope you enjoyed this edition of Lab of Tomorrow. Good night.
