Ben 10: Alien Force (2008–2010): Season 1, Episode 1 - Ben 10 Returns, Part One - full transcript

Having enjoyed a normal life for several years, Ben dons the Omnitrix once again when Grandpa Max suddenly goes missing.

You may speak to me,
half-breed vermin.

Gratitude, Master.

For months now, someone has been
leaking the details

of our secret operations
to the authorities.

I have new information
of interest.

We have found the source
of the leak.

[ beeps ]

His name is Max Tennyson.

We've had trouble
with him before.

Then let this be the final
time he troubles us.

Destroy him.



[whistle blows ]

[ crowd cheers ]

Pass it to me!
Pass it to me!

Come on!
I'm open!

[ buzzer blares ]

Ben:
Whoa!

All right, Ben!

Way to go!

[ birds chirping ]

Ben:
Oh, um, I wasn't
showing off.

I mean, I am going to show
it to my grandpa.

I guess that is sort
of showing off.

Ben Tennyson.
Hi.

Julie.



I know who you are.

Great game.

Thanks.

I really do have to go,
though.

See you tomorrow?

Okay.

Bye!

Grandpa Max?

Open up.
It's me.

[door creaks ]

Hello? Grandpa?

What happened in here?

[thud ]

[ roars ]

Ha!

Oh, man.

Peekaboo!

That thing was looking for
something, grandpa...

But what?

[ motor hums ]

Max:
Hello, Ben.

Grandpa! What's --

I left this recording where I
knew only you would find it.

I'm in a bit of a situation,

but it's nothing
I can't handle --

certainly nothing for
you to worry about.

There's renewed alien activity
on Earth.

I'm investigating.

Oh, don't worry about the
Omnitrix, either.

I have it,
and it's completely safe.

They'll never get their
hands on it.

Say hello to your
cousin Gwen for me.

Love you.

Max out.

You've got the Omnitrix?

Ben, don't run in the house!

Ben:
Sorry, mom!

He says he's got the Omnitrix.

I know it's in here somewhere.

What are you trying to tell me,
grandpa?

Hajame!

Fight!

Hey-yah!

Ha!

Point -- victory.

[applause]

So how's my favorite
cousin?

Ben!

Still undefeated.

Compliments -- means you want
something.

I got a problem.

I need advice.

Okay, soon as I change.

[snores ]

Huh?

Well, that's attractive.

What? I'm awake.
What?

You needed help?

I need advice.

[ crackling ]

Oh, don't worry about
the Omnitrix, either.

I have it,
and it's completely safe.

They'll never get their hands
on it.

Say hello to your
cousin Gwen for me.

Love you.

Max out.

Grandpa doesn't have
the Omnitrix.

You do.

Yeah.

He's sending me some
kind of message.

I think he wants me
to put it on again.

He always said that was
your choice.

You don't have to do it if you
don't want to.

I used to love the
Omnitrix.

It made me feel special.

You know what?

It wasn't the watch
that was special.

It was you.

And you earned the chance to
have a normal life.

You put that thing back on,

and that's pretty much it for
normal.

But if grandpa
needs my help...

He said he didn't.

Anyway, remember how much
trouble

we had getting it off
the last time?

Magister:
The Omnitrix ain't yours.

Give it up!

No way!

[grunting ]

Magister:
Give it to me -- now.

Or what?

Magister:
Or...this!

[sarcastically]
Oh, that's so creepy.

Magister:
Don't make me use it on you.

Who's making?

Not fish face here,
that's for sure.

You're getting really
good at that stuff.

Thanks.

I want some answers
right now.

Otherwise --

Yeah?

I don't know.
I'll overfeed you.

Do I look like
somebody to joke with?

I'm a duly deputized agent of
the Plumbers,

an intergalactic law-enforcement
organization.

I know what they are.

My Grandpa Max used to be a
Plumber.

Max Tennyson?

He was helping me on a case when
he went missing.

We're looking for him.

Wait.

He's your grandfather?

You're the legendary
Ben Tennyson?

Guess so.

I thought you were just some kid

who snatched it
from the Rust Bucket.

Guess I owe you an apology.

If you get me out of this thing,

maybe we can find your granddad
together.

Are you sure?

I'm sure.

So, what are we doing
here?

Stakeout.

According to a tip from your
grandfather,

the Forever Knights, a group of
criminals who --

Trade in alien technology.
Yeah, I know.

I've run up against them before.

Magister:
They're supposed to
show up here tonight

to receive a shipment of illegal
alien tech.

Who do they get it from?

Don't know.

Max was going to tell me,
but then he disappeared.

Someone's coming.

That's Kevin!

You know him?

Kevin Levin -- he's got
superpowers.

I fought him all the time when
we were kids.

He ended up trapped in
the Null Void,

kind of an extra-dimensional
jail.

Money's here.

Well, he's
brokering the deal.

Why not?

You said it was illegal.

As promised, four
dozen factory-new laser lances.

Ether-point energy module,
antenna-focus emitter...

it's good for 35 minutes of
continuous fire

at.06 terrawatts.

Is that good?

You tell me.

Those lances are
level-5 technology!

Planet Earth has only level 2!

Hey, what happened to
the whisper?

Hands above your heads,
air breathers.

By authority of the Plumbers,
you're all busted.

[all whirring ]

[all growling ]

[sarcastically]
Oh, that's so creepy.

Isn't it?

Back off!

[all screeching ]

What now?

Standoff.

Um, I don't think so.

The other guys are behind us.

We are toast.

No, we're not.

It's hero time!

[ beeping ]

Ben!

Watch!

[all screeching ]

[ beeping ]

Ben, seriously.

This is a really bad
time for a reboot.

[ beeping rapidly]

I got nothing.

Maybe I do.

Come on! Come on!

[ beeping ]

[grunting ]

[ beeping rapidly]

[gasps ]

It never did that before.

I don't recognize any of these
guys,

although under the
circumstances,

this one looks
pretty good.

Swampfire!

Ew, what's that smell?

[sniffs ]

Is that me?

[grunting ]

Get away from my
friends!

I forgot how much fun this is.

[laughs ]

Cut it out.

That tickles.

Hey!

[ both gasp]

You guys are in so
much trouble.

Hey, Tennyson.

What do you want?

Let's see.

You trap me in the null void for
all those years.

You did that to yourself.

And you've ruined my
deal today.

I'm thinking I want revenge.

The good news is, since I can
absorb anything,

I've got more than enough power
to take it.

That's new.

[grunting ]

And that's what happens when you
mess with me.

Hey! What?

Peekaboo!

[groans ]

Energy cuffs --
you can't escape.

Ain't nothing there to absorb.

You still got some of
that stuff in your hair.

Other side.

Ew!

Time we had a talk,
tough guy.

These weapons run on ether-point
energy cells,

a dangerous technology way too
advanced for humans.

They shouldn't even be on this
planet.

So?

How's that my problem?

While we were fighting,

the Forever Knights got away
with a crate full of them.

You set up the deal.

You're going to tell me where
they are.

Kevin, people could be hurt.

Magister:
You're in a lot of trouble, son.

I'm giving you a chance to help
yourself here.

You don't have to
convince me.

Those guys ran off before
I got paid.

I'm happy to help find those
deadbeats.

Magister:
I still think I should drive.

Nobody drives the car but me.

You were telling us
about the aliens.

I don't know

anything about the ones we
fought today.

Never met that kind before.

I don't see them in here --

not that I know how to
work this thing anymore.

Maybe after you get
your license, pee-wee.

Who won our fight again?

Oh, I remember -- me!

There's been a lot of alien
activity on Earth lately.

Don't know why.

Your grandfather thought maybe
the weapons deal

would lead us to whatever's
causing all the interest.

Now he's missing.

Knowing Grandpa Max,
he's probably at a restaurant

enjoying a roasted cockroach
salad.

It's a wonder that all that
weird food didn't kill him.

He's not dead!
Stop making jokes about him!

[tires screech ]

Don't talk to her like that.

I'll talk to her any way
I --

You're right.

I'm sorry, Gwen.

I know you're worried
about grandpa.

I just wish he were
here.

He would know what to do.

He always knows what to do.

Well, he ain't.

You're the one with the
Omnitrix.

You're going to have to figure
out

how to get things done on
your own.

[tires screech ]

Kevin:
This is it.

Subtle -- nobody would think to
look for Knights in here.

You didn't.

How do we get in?

Gwen?

[groans ]

There's no one here.

You sure this is the right
place?

There's a hidden door.

Keep looking.

Maybe you should have
brought a shopping cart.

I don't like the looks of this.

[gasps ]

Aah!

Come on, man!

What are you doing?

Sorry.

Guess I'm just a little...

paranoid!
