  • (Dexter is sitting on top of a big egg as he sews; the timer then rings, and Dexter runs out of the coop to pull a lever; the egg springs out of the coop and lands into a cup on a table in between a spoon and a salt shaker; Dexter runs over to it, pulls out a stethoscope and inspects it, then picks up the spoon and gently cracks the egg open; the egg explodes, following with the smoke clearing to reveal a robotic parrot)
  • Dexter: Dexter, my boy, you are a genius!
  • Robotic parrot: (repeating) Dexter, my boy, you are a genius!
  • Dexter: "Egg"-actly!
  • (Later, Dexter is seen using a pen on a circuit; the parrot stands nearby on a perch)
  • Dexter: Dexter is the most brilliant mind in the entire universe.
  • Robotic parrot: (repeating) Dexter is the most brilliant mind in the entire universe.
  • Dexter: Dexter's fantastic creations are the envy of all the world!
  • Robotic parrot: (repeating) Dexter's fantastic creations are the envy of all the world!
  • (Dexter sighs contently; he rolls a bolt with his finger, Dee Dee leans in from the left)
  • Dexter: Not only that, but man, his secret laboratory is the best secret laboratory of all time!
  • Robotic parrot: (repeating) Not only that, but man, his secret laboratory is the best secret laboratory of all time!
  • (Dee Dee rolls her eyes and sticks her tongue out in disgust)
  • Dexter: My sister Dee Dee is a very stupid girl!
  • Robotic parrot: (repeating) My sister Dee Dee is a very stupid girl!
  • (Dee Dee looks at both the parrot and Dexter angrily; she walks off to the right)
  • Dexter: I finally invented someone I can have an intelligent conversation with. I'm only sad that I did not think of it sooner.
  • (Several buttons are heard beeping; an alarm goes off)
  • Dee Dee: (offscreen) Ooh! What do these buttons do?
  • (Cut to Dee Dee pressing several buttons; Dexter runs toward her)
  • Dexter: No, Dee Dee! Stop!
  • (Dee Dee catches Dexter and pushes him away; he runs back)
  • Dexter: Don't touch anything!
  • (Dee Dee again catches Dexter and pushes him away; Dexter returns wearing a pair of red boxing gloves)
  • Dexter: I'm gonna bop you one, Dee Dee!
  • (Like before, Dee Dee pushes Dexter away; she then walks through the lab laughing, with Dexter giving chase)
  • Dee Dee: Ooh, what's that?
  • Dexter: Get out, Dee Dee! Get out, get out, get out!
  • (Dee Dee races by, but then returns to see through a flask filled with a pink isotope; she laughs)
  • Dee Dee: Ooh! Ooh...
  • (She laughs)
  • Dexter: Oh, Dee Dee...?
  • (Dee Dee looks at Dexter and sees a chocolate chip cookie in his hand; her irises turn into cookies)
  • Dee Dee: Cookie!
  • (She runs toward Dexter, who looks at the cookie and whistles, then sniffs and prepares to eat it as Dee Dee gets gradually faster; as she gets near him, Dexter opens the lab door and throws the cookie out, with Dee Dee chasing it; Dexter then closes the lab door and goes back to work)
  • Dexter: It always puts me in a reasonable mood to see her go through the door like that.
  • (He works on the circuit board in peace)
  • Robotic parrot: (with Dee Dee's voice) Ooh, what's that?
  • Dexter: Dee Dee, how many times must I tell you...?!
  • (He looks at the lab door, which is sealed shut)
  • Robotic parrot: What do these buttons do?
  • (Dexter looks at the parrot)
  • Robotic parrot: Dexter's a stupid girl.
  • (Dexter walks back toward the circuit breaker)
  • Dexter: No, no, no. Dexter is the most brilliant mind in the entire universe.
  • Robotic parrot: Dexter's a cookie.
  • Dexter: I am not a cookie!
  • Robotic parrot: Dexter's a cookie.
  • Dexter: Am not!
  • Robotic parrot: Are too a cookie.
  • (Dexter grabs the perch and vigorously shakes it; several nuts and bolts fly out of the parrot)
  • Robotic parrot: (with Dexter's voice) I'm gonna bop you one, girl!
  • (Dexter picks the perch up and slams it on his desk, damaging the parrot)
  • Robotic parrot: Cookie!
  • (It repeats what it said as Dexter repeatedly slams both the robotic parrot and its perch on his lab desk; fade to black then back in to Dexter working on his circuit; the parrot, now looking beat up, flies with the perch in its talons toward the lab exit)
  • Dexter: Good riddance. That has to be my worst invention yet.
  • (At the lab exit, the parrot bumps into the switch, dropping the perch as it flies out; in Dexter's room, the bookshelf opens like a garage door and the parrot flies out)
  • Fisherman: Yup, that's a big 'un! Yup, yup! That's a big 'un for the Florida Everglades! Next, we'll cover worms and plastic minnows. Yup, yup!
  • (In the living room, Dad is watching TV; the parrot flies toward the armchair he's sitting on and perches on the top)
  • Dad: Who's trying to sneak up on me?
  • Robotic parrot: (in Dexter's voice) Dexter, boy genius. Dexter, the cookie.
  • Dad: (shushes) I'm trying to watch my show!
  • Robotic parrot: (in Dexter's voice) I'm gonna bop you!
  • (Dad flinches)
  • Dad: Now, that is no way to talk to your...
  • Robotic parrot: (imitating Dexter) You are a stupid girl! Get out, get out, get out! (imitating the fisherman) Yup, yup, yup! (imitating Dexter) Don't touch anything!
  • (Dad walks off in fear; he then crawls across the carpet)
  • Dad: I-I-I'm sorry!
  • Robotic parrot: (offscreen, imitating Dee Dee's voice) You're a cookie! (imitating Dexter) Get out, get out, get out!
  • (In Dexter's lab, he is ironing his lab coats; Dad is seen on the monitor crawling; Dexter flips the coat over and continues ironing)
  • (In the kitchen, Mom is seen mixing batter inside a bowl)
  • Mom: All right, let's see... I'll need two eggs.
  • (She picks up the eggs near the bowl and cracks them open; the yolks from the eggs fall into the bowl)
  • Mom: One stick of butter.
  • (She picks the butter stick up and drops it in the bowl)
  • Mom: A half cup of sugar.
  • (She walks toward the sugar container, scoops out four cups full into the bowl and scoops out a fifth; the parrot watches; Mom dumps the sugar into the bowl and resumes mixing)

  • Robotic parrot: (imitating the fisherman) Worms and plastic minnows!
  • (Mom looks at the cookbook confounded)
  • Mom: Now wait just a minute here...
  • (She thinks for a moment as the camera zooms in on her)
  • Mom: Where am I gonna get worms and plastic minnows?
  • Robotic parrot: (imitating the fisherman) The Florida Everglades.
  • (Cut to the outside; the garage door opens; Mom pulls the family car out of the garage and drives down the street)
  • (In Dexter's lab, he is seen vacuuming the carpets; the camera stops to a view of the kitchen; Mom is seen working on her recipe, Dee Dee runs to the left, and Dad is off to the side continuing to cower in fear)
  • Robotic parrot: (repeatedly) Dexter's secret!
  • (Dexter turns the vacuum off and runs toward the screen)
  • Dexter: Oh no! What has that stupid bird done? If that canary sings, my entire laboratory will be compromised!
  • (He catches on then races to the kitchen; in the kitchen, Mom continues to mix)
  • Robotic parrot: Dexter's secret! Dexter's secret! Dexter's secret!
  • (Mom stops mixing and looks at the parrot suspiciously)
  • Mom: Say... You know, there's something strange about this bird.
  • (Dad peeks over the counter suspiciously; Dexter is seen racing out of his room; back in the kitchen, Dad is holding the robot)
  • Dad: Now where do you suppose it came from?
  • (Dee Dee and Mom lean in)
  • Dad, Mom, and Dee Dee: Hmm...
  • Robotic parrot: A secret! A secret! A secret!
  • (Dexter races through the hallway; back in the kitchen)
  • Dad: A secret? All right, mister bird. You've got some explaining to do. Out with it right now!
  • (Dexter nears the kitchen)
  • Dad: I'm not going to ask you again. Exactly where did you come from?
  • (Dexter jumps at the bird and grabs it out of Dad's hand; he and the parrot roll on the floor and both stand up, with Dexter assuming a karate-like pose)
  • Robotic parrot: Dexter's secret! Dexter's secret! Dexter's secret!
  • (Dexter picks the parrot up by its tail and suplexes it; the parrot's eyes, beak, and a talon are broken off as a bolt and spring fly up)
  • Robotic parrot: Dexter's secret!
  • Dad: Dexter!
  • (He and Mom look at him angrily)
  • Mom: How many times have I told you not to throw the bird?
  • Dexter: But Mom, it's not a real bird. I built it in my secret laboratory.
  • (He realizes what he said)
  • Dee Dee: Smooth move, Dexter. Now you'll have to erase Mom and Dad's memories... (while rolling her eyes and smiling) again.
  • Robotic parrot: (imitating Dee Dee, repeatedly) Smooth move, Dexter.
