Teen Titans Go! (2013–…): Season 3, Episode 9 - The Fourth Wall - full transcript

Control Freak informs the Titans that they are on a TV show he created and demands they earn him an award.

"The Fourth Wall"

Oh, yeah! It's TV night!

Let's numb our minds, yo!

Hello, Titans.

Ugh, Control Freak. Change it.

Don't bother changing
the channel.

Blah, there's nothing
good on tonight.

Stop... Changing...
The... Channel!

- Sorry, I think it's the only thing on.
- Control Freak,

your evil pop culture
references aren't welcome here!

What is the reasoning
of this interruption?

Well, I heard it was
TV night at the tower

and I have the perfect
show for you to watch.


Wait, that's us.

That's my jam! T-I-T-A-N-S.

- Go!
- We're in a show?

No, you are a show.

What are you talking about,
you corrupt couch potato?

I have turned the Teen
Titans into entertainment.

At this very moment,

you are being broadcast
to TVs around the world!

People are watching us?

Your every move! The
audience is watching you

from just beyond the fourth wall.
Look for yourself.

People are watching us
without our permission?

Ew! What a bunch of creeps.

- Creeps.
- The creeps.

You fools be creepy.

Hey, stop antagonizing
the audience!

I see why you'd want
to broadcast this.

But what's your evil game?

This show was supposed to
be my greatest achievement.

It was supposed to
bring me awards

and the respect of the
entertainment industry.

Instead, everyone
thinks it's garbage!

Why would anyone dislike us?

Oh, I don't know...
dookie jokes!

We don't just do dookie jokes.

Yeah! We do toot jokes, too, yo.

Your sense of humor
is so lowbrow.

Yeah, lowbrow! You've
encapsulated us so well.

And then, there's your acting.

If you can call incessant
screaming "acting."

But we are not the acting.

This is how we are!

That's even worse.

And finally, the audience
hates how you look.


I'm talking about the
animation quality.

Look for yourself.

Oh, I'm so sorry you
didn't get any precious

golden statues or industry
accolades, but we don't care!

But you will.

Because if this show
doesn't get better soon,

I will reboot you all.

You're bluffing.

Oh, yeah? I've rebooted the
Teen Titans once before.

Look upon your
previous incarnations.

That looks like us...
but better!

These Teen Titans were about character
development, drama and heart.

I used to be so much cooler.

Shh, I want to watch.

- Wow. Whoa!
- Oh... Oh.

- What? That's how it ends?
- And there is no sixth

season to resolve the plot's
hanging from the cliff?

You ended that show?
You monster.

Okay, okay, okay. I admit,
rebooting those Titans,

it was a mistake. But
rebooting you won't be

if you don't bring me an award and soon.
Freak, out.

Titans, this is perhaps the most
serious threat we've ever faced.

Er, where's Beast Boy?

Doing his underpants dance
in front of the fourth wall.

Yo, creeps, you want to be creepy?
Creep on this.

Creeping like a creeper.
Creeping like a creeper.

Get away from there, Beast Boy.
No one wants to see that.

Oh, yeah, they do.

Uh, uh, uh... Creeping
like a creeper.

Titans, focus. You
heard Control Freak.

If we don't improve this
show, we'll be rebooted.

Well, if you think we
should add more toots,

I gots toots for days.

Stop with the toots and dookie!

They don't hand out golden
statues for dookie.

But they do hand
out toilet paper.

That's the kind of joke that's
going to get us rebooted.

If we are going to play Control
Freak's demented game,

it's time to lose the lowbrow
humor which means no more

dookie jokes. We do smart
people comedy from now on!

Now, shut your butts and
let's get highbrow.

I do say, did you hear the
news about the election?

You'll have to speak up,

I'm listening to the current exit
polls concerning the election.

- Would you care for a pear?
- A pair of what?

Ah, nice word play,
Titans, and those puns.

Now, let's check those brows.

Our next step to
becoming a respectable,

award winning show is
improving our acting.

You're each going to say this
line with the emotion I give you.

Cyborg, sadness.

"Mary took her ducks to the
pond where they ate bread."

- Ro...
- Did you lose your heart

- when you got those robot parts?
- Hmm, yes!

Starfire, anger.

"The Merry ducks went
to the pond and ate..."

That performance makes me angry!
Raven, happiness.

"Mary took her ducks to..."

Talk about range... Terrible.

Beast Boy, show me heart break.

- Mary...
- Boo! Boo!

Watch me and you'll see

what an award-winning
performance looks like.

Mary took her ducks to the pond

where they ate bread crumbs...


Well, Titans, we've improved
our acting and humor,

but award season is almost
here and we still have to do

something about how we look.
Our design and animation.

Do you mean bringing dead
people back to life?

- No, that's reanimation, Raven.
- Oh, sorry, guys.

Animation is created by
countless talented animators

laboring day and night to
create the illusion of life.

And, in our case, they're
doing a terrible job.

I am sure the animators
are doing their very best

with the limited budget
and aggressive schedule.

No excuse!

Hey, animators,
take it up a notch!

We need higher quality and
a more whimsical style.

Hop to it, let's go!

Now, that is some whimsy.

Feels like a student film, yo!

Oh, yes, a true
labor of the love.

The quality of movement,
it's astounding.

Now, let's put it all together

and get ourselves
some accolades.

Would any of you care

for a slice of rhubarb pie?

Why, I would love nothing
more in the world

than a slice of 3.14159.

How circular of you, Starfire!

Good one. Good one.

Now, if you would all
excuse me, I need to toot.

How wonderful!

I believe our brows are the
highest they've ever been

and our performances are
worthy of Shakespeare.

Congratulations, Titans.

This is a big improvement.

Then, does this mean you are
not going to "reshoe" us?

Oh, I don't have to. You
already rebooted yourselves.

This was your evil
game the whole time!

I can't believe how easy it was

to make you change
everything about yourself.

We won't let you get
away with this.


Oh, you have no choice.

I can still reboot you
with the push of a button.

Now, just sit back, be charming,
and let the accolades roll in.

No, we have to be
true to ourselves.

Even if it means being rebooted.

Titans, toot!

No, no, no, no! This
is so low brow.

All together.

We's back, yo!

Not for long.

Reboot us if you
want, Control Freak,

but we are proud of who we
are and what we represent,

and we are not changing any of
that based on your evil whims.

We are the Teen Titans!

♪ We're in the club
getting' busy ♪

Wow! That was really beautiful.

Maybe you guys aren't
so awful after all.

- Then, you won't reboot us?
- Oh, no, I'm doing that for sure.

Now, look out at your
audience for the last time.

The fourth wall.

Titans, we have to
break the fourth wall!

Then he won't be able
to broadcast us!

Oh, great!
