Short Recap of Part One

Prologue

Ext. Park - Combination Green Screen - Day 11501

Goldar stands with foot raised, looking down into the grass.

Goldar

Prepare to be insect jelly beneath my feet you miserable Rangers!!

Insert - Close Angle - Green Screen

Billy, Aiesha and Rocky cower in the grass as Goldar's monstrous foot hovers above them.

Aiesha

We can't go out like this! Squashed like bugs!

Rocky

We've gotta do something!

Billy

We have to morph! Maybe that will at least give us some small amount of power.

The three tiny Rangers go into their morphing sequence. They stand in the grass in their tiny ranger uniforms.

Goldar

(o.c.)

Ready or not, here I come!

Goldar begins to lower his foot.

Red Ranger

All together now!

The three tiny rangers latch onto Goldar's huge toe and manage to trip him. They do a series of gymnastic maneuvers and flip out of frame.

Wide Angle - Same

Page 2.

Goldar falls with a thud. He roars as he crawls to his knees and begins to paw through the grass. Finster stands helpless beside him.

Goldar

Don't just stand there you mutant reject! Find those Rangers!!!

Finster

Oh dear oh dear...

Finster gets down beside Goldar and begins to look.

Angle - Green Screen

The three tiny Rangers stand breathing hard beneath the cover of a large rock.

Yellow Ranger

That was close.

Red Ranger

Too close if you ask me!

Blue Ranger

I'm going to try and contact Zordon! (into communicator) Zordon! Alpha! Come in...

The three crouch deeper beneath the rock as they see Goldar and Finster's feet go by.

End Prologue

Act One

Int. Command Center - Same 11502

Alpha stands at the viewing Globe. Billy's voice comes in distorted and faint.

Billy

(o.c.)

Do you read me? Alpha, Zordon!

Alpha

Aye yai yai! Billy!!! What's happened to you?!!!

Page 3.

Zordon

Billy, are you and the others safe at the moment?

Billy

(o.c.)

I don't know for how long! Rita managed to get a hold of my device and shrunk us all!

Zordon

I want you to stay put in the general vicinity as long as you can. Alpha, contact the others!

Alpha

Right, Zordon!! Aye yai yai!

Int. Youth Center - Same 11503

Kimberly, Tommy and Adam refill plates to the homeless who are gathered at the table eating. Tommy hears his communicator go off. He signals to the other two and points to his communicator. Adam and Kimberly move to join him.

Kimberly

I had a feeling something was wrong.

Tommy

(softly)

We read you, what's up?

Alpha

(o.c.)

Rangers, you must teleport to the Command Center at once. Something's happened to Billy and the others. Hurry!

Tommy

We're on our way.

Adam

I hope they're alright.

Kimberly

Come on!

The three hurriedly exit.

Page 4.

Int. Lord Zedd's Palace - Same 11504

Rita stands looking through her repulsascope. She pulls back and laughs.

Rita

That Goldunce baboon better not let those Rangers get away!!!

Lord Zedd sits in his chair concentrating through his laser vision.

Lord Zedd

I see that Zordon has just called the other Rangers in to the Command Center!

Rita

Perfect! They'll come to the rescue of their tiny friends and we'll shrink them too!!!

Rita and Lord Zedd share a maniacal laugh.

Int. Command Center - Same 11505

The three Rangers stand looking through the Viewing Globe. Alpha stands to the side working on some kind of mechanism. Tommy talks into his communicator.

Tommy

Hang in there buddy, we're gonna get you guys out of there.

INSERT: Shot of Billy, Aiesha and Rocky huddled by the rock. Billy talks into his communicator.

Billy

Could you hurry,...there's some bugs around here the size of a station wagon.

Kimberly turns to Zordon.

Kimberly

We've got to go get them!

Zordon

I'm afraid you must wait here until Alpha can devise a protective shield source.

(MORE)

Page 5.

Zordon (cont'd)

Goldar and Finster are still in possession of Billy's device. We must not take any chances of you three being shrunk also.

Adam

How long will that take?

Alpha

I've almost got it! It'll just be a jiffy.

The three turn back to the Viewing Globe.

Int. Youth Center - Same 11506

Bulk and Skull come from the kitchen wearing soiled aprons.

Bulk

Have you ever seen so many dishes in your life?

Skull

I've got dish pan hands! I think I even have dish pan elbows!!

Ernie comes up to them with a bin of dirty dishes and plops them in their arms.

Ernie

Back to work guys, there's plenty more where that came from.

Bulk and Skull stare disgustedly at Ernie as he walks away.

Bulk

(mimicking Ernie)

There's plenty more where that came from...I'm sick of these dishes! We were so close to being rich!

Skull

Yeah, now the only thing we're close to is...more dishes.

Skull begins to carry the dishes back to the kitchen. Bulk stops him.

Page 6.

Bulk

Wait a minute! I bet the Power Rangers have taken care of those creeps in the park by now!

Skull

So?

Bulk

So...I bet the device is still where you dropped it!!

Skull

I dropped it?!!...You dropped it! You wouldn't even let me carry it! Remember?

Bulk grabs the bin of dishes and sets them down. He begins to untie his apron.

Bulk

Details! Minor details! Come on Skull! We're gonna go get that device and we're gonna be rich once and for all!

Bulk yanks Skull out of frame. A beat later Skull's apron flies into frame and lands on the discarded bin of dishes.

Int. Command Center - Same 11507

Alpha stands before Kimberly, Tommy and Adam holding a large metal tubed mechanism. He runs it over their bodies creating a shower of sparks.

Alpha

This should protect you from the shrinking rays of Billy's device.

Zordon

Alpha and I will try to track a progress report of the others. I must warn you, it may be difficult to find them.

Kimberly

We'll just have to watch where we step.

Adam

Let's do it!

Tommy

It's morphin time!

Page 7.

The three go into the morphing sequence.

Ext. Park - Same 11508

The three Rangers land in the park in front of Goldar and Finster who are both on their knees.

White Ranger

Looking for something?

Goldar and Finster scramble to their feet.

Goldar

Prepare to join your tiny friends! Get em Finster!

Finster

With pleasure!

Finster aims the device toward the three and switches the lever. A ray of light emits but bounces of the Rangers forms and hits a tree. The tree is now the size of a bonsai tree.

Goldar

Fool! What did you do to it?!

Finster

Nothing! I...It must have malfunctioned...

The three Rangers begin to advance on Finster.

Pink Ranger

You'd better hand that over now!

Finster

I think I left something boiling back at the palace!

Finster drops the device and vanishes.

Goldar

(to sky)

Coward! (To Rangers) Welcome to my little search party! Watch where you step, your friends could be anywhere!

Goldar begins to stomp around wildly!

Page 8.

Adam

Stop it!

Goldar

(to sky)

Putties!!!

A group of putties appear and also begin to jump around stomping wildly.

Pink Ranger

They're going to crush them! (to ground) Run! Where ever you guys are,...Run!

White Ranger

I've had just about enough of this!

Tommy looks down carefully and leaps at Goldar. Kimberly and Adam begin to battle the putties.

Billy, Aiesha and Rocky are running frantically as the whole ground vibrates and thunders below them.

Blue Ranger

Come on! We've gotta get outta here!

Ahhhh!

Rocky helps her up and they both run together.

Keep moving!!!

Bulk,...I don't think this is such a good idea. The Power Rangers are still fighting that Gold thing!

Suddenly two putties fly toward them knocking them off their skate boards. They scream and scramble up. Bulk takes off on his skate board as Skull runs behind him.

Wait for me!!!

So! Finally the great white Ranger runs in fear!

Kimberly and Adam see Tommy running to the skate board just as Goldar does.

Goldar

Putties! Follow that skate board! Don't let him get near it!

A group of putties break away in pursuit. Two catch up to Tommy and begin to haul him down.

Rita

Well do it already!!!

End Act Two

Epilogue

Ext. Park - Day 11511

Bulk and Skull wander through the park near the battle sight.

Skull

Bulk, how could we have both had the same dream? I know I saw baby Rangers and you saw them too!!!

Bulk

Trust me Skull, it was a dream....at least that's what I'm going to tell everyone if you tell them about this.

Page 14.

Bulk stops suddenly and points.

Bulk

Skull, is that what I think it is?

Skull looks over to see Billy's device once again abandoned on the ground.

Skull

(sarcastically)

No Bulk, it's just a dream.

Bulk bonks him on the head and picks the device up pointing toward the two of them.

Bulk

I don't believe it! We've been given another chance! We're gonna be rich!

Skull

And, what ever you do, do not push this button!

Skull pushes the button to emphasize his point. The device begins to shake and suddenly Bulk and Skull are immersed within a bright light. Slowly the two begin to shrink.

Bulk

Now look what you've done!

Skull

Mommy!!!

Int. Command Center - Same 11512

The big Rangers stand next to Alpha looking across the room at the little Rangers which are on the floor.

White Ranger

You think this is going to work Alpha?

Alpha

I've managed to replicate the bio waves within the molecular structure of their chemistry make up.

Zordon

Alpha will activate their molecules encouraging growth.

Page 15.

Pink Ranger

The sooner the better.

Black Ranger

We need them. Nimrod and clone are still on the loose.

Alpha

Here goes!

Alpha pushes a melange of buttons and switches. Light enfolds the tiny Rangers and they grown back to normal size.

Red Ranger

Morphenominal!

Yellow Ranger

I will never complain about being short again!

Blue Ranger

Back to normal at last!

White Ranger

Are we glad to see you!

Alpha gazes into the Viewing Globe.

Alpha

Aye yai yai!

Pink Ranger

What is it Alpha?

Alpha

I'm afraid Bulk and Skull are in big trouble. They must of gotten a hold of your device Billy.

Blue Ranger

Oh no!

The Rangers crowd around to look.

INSERT: GREEN SCREEN Bulk and Skull are shaking in terror in the grass. There is a deep rumbling growl. The camera pans to a close up of a German Sheppard peering down at them. Bulk and Skull grab onto each other and whimper in terror.

Bulk

N...n...nice doggie!

The dog barks loudly. The two look at each other and scream.
