4 Years Ago
Alex: Here we go, bro! The Z-Machine!
Kyle: Dude, I’ve been waiting 2 years for this to be released!
Alex: Then let’s open it!
(Alex and Kyle open the box and see the Z-Machine)
Kyle: I know right! Have you seen these two games that come with it?
Alex: “Super Jack Bros Z?” Dude! I played the original Super Jack Bros years back! Good game.
Kyle: What’s this game, though? It has some weird Japanese writing on it?
(the box says 開いていません)
Alex: Guess we should finish Super Jack Bros first?
4 Years Later
Alex: Come on, bro! We just need to defeat level 463!
Kyle: Why? What happens?
Alex: We defeat the Spikesman and save the princess!
Kyle: Dude, is that him?
Alex: Yeah! That’s him! This is what we’ve been waiting 4 years for!
(the screen says “Pick Up the Pistol”, they do so and the Spikesman surrenders, giving them the Princess)
Alex: Haha! Spikesman’s such a wuss!
Kyle: Yeah he is!
(they high five)
Alex: I guess this means that now we can play that other game?
(they open it up and it says “誰がこのコードを入力した場合、あなたの人生の残りのために不運を持って、これを開くあえて：42699”
Alex: Dude, it’s an access code!
(they press the buttons 42699 on the controller’s gamepad and their Z Machine explodes)
Kyle: Well, that was a waste of $500.
(cuts to night, Alex is asleep, suddenly, his room turns into a small empty 8-bit room, he wakes up)
Alex: Huh? What? What’s going on?
(he hears a deep voice)
Voice: Are you blind? The other box said DO NOT OPEN! If you typed in the code, your Z Machine breaks)
Alex: Oh, well why I am in here?
Voice: We’ve got a new Z Machine at the top of an obstacle course, you must go to it or you will die!
Alex: How will I die?
Voice: I mean in the Obstacle Course!
Alex: Do I have to?
Voice: Well, if you open the door, you’ll go into the Obstacle Course! Oh and you can’t do it alone, bring a buddy.
Alex: Alright, I’ll call Ky-
Voice: No need, I will teleport him here myself!
Kyle: What the?
Alex: Welcome to the gaming obstacle course, we have to do it or we die.
(Alex opens the door, a giant bear is at the top, throwing down hats, he hits a random guy doing the obstacle course and he dies)
Kyle: Dude are you sure this is safe?
Kyle: Hey, what’s this?
(picks up an apple)
Alex: That’s an apple, bro. We need to eat it to restore our health, so keep it for when we need it!
(he grabs onto a ladder)
Kyle: Whoa! Can you climb it?
Alex: Yep. (he climbs to the next floor and helps Kyle up)
Kyle: Aw Man, lava?
(the camera zooms into lava)
Alex: How are we gonna get through this?
Kyle: Wait, can we pick these-(he unplugs the ladder that they climbed up)-Dude!
(they place it over the lava and walk across)
(Alex and Kyle climb up a new ladder, but a spike gets fired at Alex and his health goes from 100 to 10)
Alex: Aah! (jumps down to the second floor) Dude! There’s spikes up there! I’m not gonna make it!
Kyle: Not now, dude! Take this apple, I’ll take this hammer!
(Alex bites the apple, it disappears and his health goes back to 100.
Alex: Let’s do this. Also, you can pick up pretty much anything in this game!
(Kyle picks up the hammer, jumps up the ladder and throws it towards a spike machine, it gets destroyed)
(music plays as Alex and Kyle go through the obstacle course, destroying, moving over and picking up things…)
Alex: Dude! We’re at the second to last floor! We just need to get to the top floor and we’ve won the Z Machine back!
(the bear throws a hat down, but Alex dodges it)
Kyle: What’s that?
(he picks up a reflector)
Alex: Dude! Get to the top floor and when he throws a hat at you, reflect it!
Kyle: What’ll that do?
Alex: It’ll hit him instead of you!
Kyle: Oh, okay! I knew that!
(Air on the G String plays as Kyle runs through the hat throwing, he jumps up and points the reflector at the bear, a hat goes towards his crotch, a punching sound is heard, the music ends as the bear faints)
Alex: Yeah, we did it!
Kyle: Great! Now let’s get this Z Machine! (he picks it up)
Alex: So what games are we gonna get?
Kyle: Well, Super Jack Bros Z II just came ou-(he drops the Z Machine)
Alex: Reset Game!
(a screen says GAME OVER and the episode ends)
- The episode features various video game references, the Z Machine is a reference to the Xbox, Super Jack Bros is a reference to Super Mario Bros and the obstacle course is very similar to Donkey Kong. Bear=Donkey Kong, he throws hats instead of barrels.
