Big City Greens (2018–…): Season 2, Episode 23 - Big Resolution/Winter Greens - full transcript

On New Year's Eve, Cricket insists on helping Gloria complete her resolution of approaching her longtime crush, Kevin; Cricket and Remy challenge Vasquez to a snowball fight; Tilly creates a snow person.

Good morning, Big City!

It seems we've awoken to
a surprise overnight snowfall!

Folks all across town
are taking it in

before it melts later tonight.

I'm Ronald Featherman,
your local weatherman,

here to get the word
from one of our very own.

You! Little boy, what do you
think of this surprise snow?

[unintelligible chatter]

Powerful words
from a powerful baby.

[kids laughing]

[pants, grunts]

Wow, way to take a hit, buddy!

So, you ready to play again
for the fourteenth time?!

We could, or we could play
together! On the same team!

Great idea! With your
high school level reading brain

and my one really strong arm,

we'd be the best
snowball fighting duo ever!

We just need someone else
to play against.

Let me go see if I can teach
the robot butler how to fight.

Ah! [gasps]

Vasquez! You saved me!

You're the best bodyguard, ever.

It's my duty to protect you,
Master Remy.

[gasps] That's it! Vasquez!

You should snowball fight
me and Remy!

- No.
- That's a great idea, Cricket!

Vasquez, you must play with us!

- No.
- [Cricket] Nyeh!

Fight with us!

I cannot. I am
Master Remy's bodyguard.

To harm him in any way, even
with the gentlest snowball,

would violate
my prime directive.

Uh-huh, uh-huh.
Remy, may I have a word?

- Okay.
- I know how to get Vasquez

to play with us.

[clears throat]

As long as he's your bodyguard,

he's gotta guard
your little body, right?

- Mm-hmm.
- So, fire him!

- What?!
- Shh-shh-shh!

Fire him temporarily.

Just long enough for him
to snowball fight us!

Then you hire him back, m-kay?

That makes so much sense!

I'll go tell him the good news!

You do that, buddy.

Vasquez! Vasquez! You're fired!

[wails in agony]



Vasquez, it's okay!

I'll hire you back right after
you snowball fight us!

- If you give us a good game!
- Yeah!

Give us a good game! And
don't hold back, ya hear me?

Yes, Master Remy.
I hear you perfectly.


You have a ten second
head start.

[both giggling]

It's two against one!
We're gonna obliterate him!

[boys sing song]
La, la, la, la, la!

If Master Remy
requires a good game,

then I shall give him
a good game.

We've been unexpectedly seasoned

with nature's wintry salt.
Isn't it wonderful?

Sure is, Tilly-girl!

Just adding
the finishing touch... There.

Lookin' good, Till.
Whaddya gonna name her?

Her name is Margaret.

I like it!

I made a whole to-do list
for her.

Get made out of snow.

The end.

What? What about
all the stuff in between?

Time moves swiftly
for a snow person.

She's a banana.
Green on the table,

but browning in the hand. Time.

Whoa. No, no-no-no.
Man, that is bleak.

There's so much
she'll miss out on!

Oh! She's dripping.

Tilly, if this is the one day
of Margaret's life,

then we gotta fill it up!
Make it rich!

- I suppose.
- Here, give me that list.

We are gonna give her
the best last first day, ever.

Let's go!


-Pack it once, twice,
-[snow squeaking]

thrice, and there!
We are ready for him.

All right, Remy, keep
a keen eye out for Vasquez.



Huh, I guess it was noth...

Ah! Ugh!

Cricket! Are you okay?

He's... here.

Vasquez? Where...

[screaming, crying]

- Remy, cover your vitals!
- I can't!

I have too many vitals!

It's getting in my un-do's,
Cricket! My un-do's!

Okay, hold on, buddy.
I got an idea!

Ow ow ow ow!

Vasquez, time out!


[chuckles] Got him.

Cricket, there he is!

Ha! We fooled you, Vasquez!


[both gasp]



Then, where is he?


[gradually rising yell]


[yell continues to scream]


Hey, Joe Snow!
What about Gramma!

Everyone staying warm in here?

Hey, Bill, can we
get a hand here?

- This is Margaret.
- Uh, hi, Margaret.

We're trying to give her
a full life before she...


And first up on
the list of experiences

is falling in love.
You gotta kiss her.

- [Tilly squeals]
- Makes perfect sense.

Margaret, I love you.

Aw, sweet.

- Okay, next!
- [paper rustles]

Oh, shoot.

Hey, Bill, we need you
to dump Margaret.

I'm sorry, Margaret,

but I think we should
see other people.

[both wailing]

- Oh, no, Bill. Come on!
- Too cruel, Papa! Too cruel!

There are
plenty more fish in the sea.

Trust me, I know.

- [crying]
- Let's get moving!

What about eating
cartons of ice cream

and burning Papa's belongings?

[Nancy] No time!
Margaret's starting to soften.

Up next, the zoo!

Who's ready
to see some polar bears?

- We are!
- Polar bear show

- starts in five minutes!
- Well, that was fun!

But what about the polar...

They're bears, they're white.
Margaret gets it.

Time is short and
we got a lot to do!

Next up, the skate park.

Margaret's doin' an ollie!

Whoo! Good enough.

Margret's first movie!

[movie preview] Coming soon,
to a theater near you...

Okay, that's enough, we gotta
keep hoofin' on this list.

Hmph. What
is goin' on with her?

[Remy] Cricket,
we've been running for hours!

Can't we stop
to catch our breath?

Yeah, sure.
We've put enough distance

between us and Vasquez.
Let's just... [groans]

Lie down for a second?

Ho, man, you hear that?
My heart is pounding.

- [whupping]
- Yeah, mine, too.

Oh, my gosh! Remy, run!

[both screaming]

[computer voice]
Auto pilot, engaged.


- Snow-zooka.
- [beeps]



Uh, excuse me.

Vasquez! You're rehired!
Please stop!

You hear that, man?
Remy wants you back!

Everything can just
go back to normal!

Can't you see? It's us!

Vasquez, can't you hear us?!

Vasquez squash bugs.

He's too far gone!

We've created a monster!

Hello, Vasquez!

- Ah!
- Uh...

Really?! We're walking, here!

Oh, wow, I said the thing.

You are not who I seek!

And you're not
the large pizza I ordered

for my snow person friend.
So, if you'll excuse us.

How's she liking her coffee,

I'm afraid Margaret
is beginning to sluice.

- Bye, Vasquez!
- [Vasquez growls]

What do we do now?

The only way to stop Vasquez
is to win this snowball fight.

Okay, we still
got a lot more to do.

How's Margaret's pizza party
wrapping up?

We're working on the last slice.


Mama, I'm not sure
she's gonna last much...

Ugh! [strains, groans]

Mama, this is
getting out of hand.

Hey, there you are!
Next on her list is...

mechanical bull riding!

Then, we'll get gelato,
go rock climbing...

Mama, are you all right?

One sec.
Then, we'll have a concert,

I'll do lead vocals and
you can be on tambourine.

- Mama...
- And then,

we can sign her up for tap!

[bull roars]

- [gasps]
- [splats]

Ah! That's okay! She's okay!

We're just gonna squish
the snow back together

and Margret will be okay
and we can move on

to the next thing
on the list and...

May I have a word with you?

Skim milk, on the rocks.

Ah, just the way I like it.

Mama, I know it's difficult
to see Margaret

- in such an unseemly state.
- [dripping]

But snow persons melt
all the time.

I suspect something else
is plaguing you.

Well now, look at you.

You're already talkin'
so grownup-ly! [chuckles]

[sighs] I guess, seeing
Margaret's life go by so fast

made me think of you,
and all the time

I missed with you
when I was in jail.

And all the time I miss
when I'm not with you.

You're just growin' up so fast.

- [slurps]
- [laughs]

Well, I guess,
you're still a kid, after all.

Mama, what's important is
enjoying the time

we have together, right now.

Margaret's life
may be just a day,

but we still have a whole
lifetime to spend together.

Oh, sweetie, I love you.

I'm so sorry
I made all the stuff

with Margaret rushed and weird.

I just really did not
want to see her melt.

Well, maybe,
she doesn't have to.

Best snow day, ever!

So, they've returned
to the nest.

[computer beeping]

Target found.


- Wha...
- Idiot!


But that means... Ooh!

[teeth chattering]
We t-t-took off our clothes

and hid in the snow to lower
our c-core temperature

so you couldn't see us!

B-because we're s-s-smart!

And now, you're finished!

Huh? Ah!

Whoo-hoo! Yeah!

It's finally over. We won.

Uh-oh. Ah! Remy!


- Yah!
- Run! [muffled]

Vasquez, stop!

Vasquez squash bugs!

Fine! If I can't win,

- I'll lose!
- Huh?

If this is what it takes
to end this,

do it! Let's finish this!

Huh? What?

I asked for a good game,

now gimme a good game!
C'mon, right here!

Vasquez squash bug!

Vasquez squash... M-Master Remy?

- Oh!
- [Cricket] Ow.

Master Remy! What have I done?

Vasquez, you're back!

Can you ever forgive me?

Already done! Vasquez,

will you be my bodyguard again?

Yes, yes, a thousand times, yes!

Wow, love conquers all.

Huh? Hey,
whaddya think you're doing?

That'll teach you to use
your Gramma as bait!
