Dogs in Space (2021–…): Season 1, Episode 5 - Episode #1.5 - full transcript

Stella. The Pluto was due
back an hour ago.

Where are you? Why aren't you here?

Oh, hey, Loaf. Oh, relax.
Everything's under control...


Hey, sorry. But, um...

Is that peanut butter
on both of your eyebrows?

Is everything okay?
Wait, are you not Stella?

Have you been body-snatched?

I could not be better. Loaf, uh...

Could you tell the Council
that I'll be a tiny bit late? My... um...

My performance review is...

Is this afternoon, I know.

Terrifying to be scrutinized.

What if they find out you secretly
always hated being in outer space?

What? You've always hate...

No, Loaf, I'm not worried about that, I...

- Ow!
- Of course not, because you're you.

You always know how to...


You got little stowaways?

Aw, that one looks like Chonies,
and that one looks like Ed.

Wait, wait, wait, what's going on?

Is that the crew?

I've got a really good feeling
about this planet.

You said that every time
we've landed on a planet.

Yeah, for months.

More times than I can count.

What? No way.

I think this might be the one.

I think this might be the one.

I think this might be the one.

I think this might be the one.

I think this might be the... one!


I know the last few planets
haven't exactly met

the Council's very high standards,

but this time...

Water's bugs.

Out of here.

What's wrong with drinking bugs?

What, do you need a lemon in it?

I did it on my planet,
so why can't humans?

Kira, humans aren't the problem.

In fact... in fact,

I think we can revive our wilting morale

by doing what humans would do.

Colonize this place
and say that we discovered it?


We are taking a day off!

- You're joking.
- Uh, do I sound like I'm joking?

Yeah, pretty much always.

My performance review's tomorrow.

Tomorrow's tomorrow.

That leaves us plenty of time to relax.


Can I speak with you for a minute?

Garbage, uh, the review is my chance
to make the Council see

that I'm Captain material. I need to prep.

You've got this, Stella.
If anything, you're too prepared.

Too prepared? Oh, no, no, no. Oh, no.

No, no! In a good way! But look at us.

Right. If it's okay,
I'm just going to stay on the...

Of course! In fact, it's an order.
No fun for you.

Come on, guys.

What? I'm thirsty.

Top three qualities
for an exceptional captain:

strategy, insight, focus...

Oh, no, no, it's insight,

grace under pressure, strategy, insight...

Ugh, come on, Stella,
you're better than this!

Oh, hi, Council-member Duchess.

Okay, step one, approach confidently...

No! You're not doing it right.

Make sure thumb is extended, fingers out.

No, follow the rules! Follow protocol!

Listen to the Council,
stop dropping your blaster!

Protocol for first encounter
with an alien species.

Try to de-escalate the situation?


Okay, team, let's head back to...

Huh? Computer, locate the crew.

All crew on board. Location, laundry room.

The laundry room?
Oh, no, what did they do?

Garbage? Nomi? Chonies?

Are you in here?


Aw. Aw.

What am I doing?


Catch me, catch me!

Stella, look at me!

Pew, pew, pew!
I'm gonna get you!

I'm gonna get you! Pew, pew!

What happened?

I'll tell you! I'll tell you!

One at a time. One at a time!

Okay, so I was the leader.

We're all walking around in the market
eating all the yummy free stuff.

You mean like samples?

Yeah, samples.

All of the samples.

We pretended we had money
and wanted to buy things,

but we didn't.

Stella! Can you scratch my nose, please?

No, me! My nose is the Captain's nose,
so it's gotta be scratched.

I... You know, I'm not gonna...

Ugh, you know what, just finish the story.

So, so, at the bug water
planet's market, Garbage...

When he was still a grown-up.

Yeah, he was still a big boy.

I am the Captain!

Yeah, so, so,
he put a snack in his mouth,

except it was not a snack.

But he didn't chew it.

It tasted like shoe, but alive.

And... And then everyone
at the market was so mad at us.

And everyone made faces like,

"Argh, we are mad at you guys!"

Which was us.

Okay, so you were escaping
an angry mob because,

Garbage, you almost ate a baby by mistake?

It tasted like an alive wallet.

Anyway, then we were all so scared,

except for Captain Me!

True. Captain Garbage was...
Was very, very brave.

He bravely said.

"Let's run away from them right now!"

Then, we ran into a weird alien guy.

I saw the weird alien guy first.

He looked sneaky, so I said...

"Can you help to hide us?"

And he said...

- "Sure, want to turn into babies?"
- So, I said...


Make us babies so we can have a disguise."

And so,
we skipped away from the mob.

Captain Garbage saved the day!

That's right. I did.

Then we did cartwheels
all the way back to the Pluto.

- I'm gonna be sick.
- It's okay, Stella.

Yeah, Chonies was already sick

- over there in the corner.
- Twice!

Okay, it's fine. I can fix this.
All we need to do is...

Look at me, look at me!

Oh, for the love of... Nomi.

Nomi, Nomi, no touching the turbo button.

We're not even in space!



The Pluto was due back an hour ago.
Where are you? Why aren't you here?

Oh, hey, Loaf. Oh, relax.

Everything's under control... Ow!

Pew, pew!

Wait, wait, wait, what's going on?
Is that the crew?

Loaf? Loaf?

Loaf, get up!

Hi, Loafy. I have peanut butter that
I made in my mouth from chewing peanuts.

See? Aah.

Stella, listen, just...

get back to the M-Bark!

Oh, and tell the Council what?

"Sorry I'm late, my crew turned
into puptots on my watch.

How'd you feel about making me a Captain?
Huh? Never? I agree!"

But what if

you can use the
genetic enhancement machine

to make them grown-ups again
before you meet with the Council.

Uh... Oh, that might work,

- but my pilot and my Captain are...
- Arf, arf, arf.

- I'm gonna barf! Barf, barf, barf!
- Dizzy.

- Oh, songs about barf make me...
- ...nauseous.

I gotta go. You got this.

Go, Garbage! Woo! Garbage!


Okay. Confidence, Stella.

You can still make it back in time.

That tickles.


Your turn.

Whoa! Yeah!

Pew, pew, pew, pew!

- Mine.
- Go faster, fast!

Nomi, I can still get
to my very important meeting.

I just need you to hold this control
in this exact position. Can you do that?

Shortcut! Yeah!

Yay! Woo-hoo-hoo!

- Nomi! Ugh. Let me drive now.
- No! I want to!


Nomi, you did a great job,
but now it's Stella's turn.



Battle stations!


I want to go out.

Stella, as Captain, I command you to...

No, please sit still.
I'm trying to keep you safe.

- From that!
- No, stop. Stop!


Sit tight, puptots.

Time to teach these baddies some manners.

Okay, protocol for first encounter
with an alien species

is to de-escalate potential conflict.

Hey, friends.

It's clear that smashing and harvesting
ships for parts is your whole thing,

but I'm just wondering
if you could just, um...

Whew! Okay, if you want
to play it that way, fine!

I've got an important meeting
and you're making me very late!


Stella and the vultures!

Stella and the vultures!

Stella and the vultures!

Duchess came looking for you.

She's asking why you're not here
for your review.

I didn't want to lie, so I played dead.

Loaf, this is not a good time!

I have an engine to save,
puppies to protect,

and very resourceful
space vultures trying to kill me.

Wow! Space vultures! Oh, no.
My lungs hurt.

Hold on, I'm grabbing my inhaler.


Why did I ever want to become a Captain?

I'm not cut out for this! I couldn't even
run a daycare, let alone a...

That's it! Daycare!

Okay, puppies of the Pluto!

This is our ship and no one
is gonna rip it to pieces.

- Are you ready to save the day?
- Woo-hoo!

- Yeah.
- With your big boy Captain.

I am the Captain!

Yay! Woo-hoo!

Yeah, you are! Nomi,

- you get to fly the big space plane.
- Pew, pew, pew!

Chonies, fill the remaining engine
with fire!

Ed, stay out of trouble.

No, no, no, no, wait. Hide from trouble.

I'm the sneakiest boy.

That's right, buddy.

And, Kira, watch out for baddies.

I'm great at this!


Nomi, make the spaceship go zoom!


Okay, puppies, who wants
to help Stella get back in time

for her performance review?

I... I mean, Nomi,

you want to hit the turbo button now?

- Loafy, I'm so excited to see you!
- Yeah! Woo-hoo!

Stella, how could something
so cute be so upsetting?

I hope this works.

That wasn't a joke.

I know. I'm laughing
because I missed my review,

I wrecked the ship
and probably also my career.

Oh. Ha-ha?


You missed your review.

I know. I'm sorry.

Uh, Duchess. It's not her fault. She was...

Be quiet, Loaf.

Come along, Stella.
We'll do the review now.

Oh, uh, okay, sure.

I got thumbs now?


Yes, I'm sorry, Duchess.
I should have stayed with my crew.

I wanted so hard to ace
this performance review.

I did my best
and I tried to do the right thing, but...

- I agree.
- Huh?

You did and I'm impressed.

You've shown that
one team member's tenacity

can inspire an entire crew too,

well, grow up.

You're a credit to the M-Bark.

Captaincy isn't far away for you.

Thank you so much.

Thank you, thank you. I, um...


- Yes! Stella!
- Yeah. Woo-hoo!

- There she is.
- Woo! Yay, Stella!

- We're rooting for you.
- Yeah!

You guys, I didn't tell you
how it went yet.

You didn't have to.
We saw you in action the whole time.

You were amazing.

Wait, so, you remember everything?

- Oh, yeah.
- All of it.

Yeah. Sorry about all the mess
we made on the ship,

including the mess
you probably haven't discovered yet.

But we made you this.

Aw, thanks, you guys.

It's adorable that you made this
when you were puppies.

Yeah, that's right. When we were puppies.

All hail future Captain Stella!

Stella, Stella, Stella!

You go, girl!
