Narrator: Bart Allen. (A.k.a. Impulse) A super speedster from the 30th century. Two weeks ago Bart was worrying about his haircut… Two weeks ago: Bart: (Sitting there with a flattop looking upset) Present time: Narrator: …now it's the Space Pig arcade competition. (Doorbell rings) Helen: Bart! Preston's here! Bart: (Runs down the stairs. Opens up the door) Max: Bart, invite Preston in. Bart: Oh yeah do you want… Preston: (Shoves a magazine in Bart's face) Bart: (Grabs the magazine. Reads it) Magazine: Space Pig's Championship Saturday!!!!! Preston: The winner wins a new Virtual Enhancer 4000 Bart: (Smile spreads across his face) Coooooll!!! Letsgopractice! C'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon. (Runs past Preston. Grabs Preston's arm) Helen: (Steps into the doorway. Concerned) Come home before dark! Arcade: Bart & Preston: (Playing Space Pig's) Carol: Don't you think you guys have had enough? Bart & Preston: (Look at each other. Laugh) Carol: (Shakes her head) Drexler: (To a short little kid) Hey dweeb, gimme ya quarters now. Bart: (To Preston) Who's that bozo? Preston: That's Acne Anthon… Bart: Not him. The tall kid. Preston: Oh! That's Drexler. Carol: Since when did they crown him. Bart: (Thinks of someone hitting him with a crown. Smiles) Preston: You don't want to get on his bad side. Bart: By the looks of his face, all of his sides look bad. Carol: That's not right. Bart: And I'm gonna fix it. (Is about to walk off) Preston: You know his dad owns this whole arcade. Mess with him and you'll be banned for life. Bart: (Stops. Thinks about a big sign in front of the arcade with Impulse's face circled and with a slash through it) Narrator: Bart has a weakness in many things… The thought of having to stay home with max instead of virtual simulations is one of them. Bart: Well maybe I'll wait just a little bit. Carol: (Gives him a dirty look) Bart: (Gives a nervous smile) Walking home: Narrator: As you can tell Bart is as impulsive as his name. He usually lets the thinking go to Carol. For instance… Carol: Didn't you're "Uncle" say you can't join in any arcade competitions?* *Max denied Bart to play megadeamon in Impulse #29- Gary Miles Bart: Well, um, yeah but this is different. Carol: And how is that? Bart: Well this time I'm not going to tell him. Carol: And you suspect he won't find out. Bart: (Thinks of himself walking through the door with this big trophy and Max's all bug-eyed. Faking to be not worried) Not at all. Preston: I don't know Bart. You're Uncle's a pretty smart guy. Bart: (Imagines Max dressed up as one of the three wise men riding a camel. Thinks to himself) He's old enough. Preston: Want to go rent some more games. Bart: (Excited) Definitely! Carol: More?! Bart: (Imagines Carol with a dunce hat on) Video Store: Preston: Carol would you please grab the game for us. I have to keep my hands in perfect condition. Carol: Oh give me a break. Bart: (To Carol) Someday you'll appreciate us practicing video games. Narrator: When Bart gets involved in something he puts his whole brain into it. Carol: And when will this be? Bart: (Imagines Carol standing behind Impulse scared has he battles a dragon with Max's head on it away) When I save you from an evil villain like, Darkseid Carol:
Narrator: He's still half a brain short. Preston: Poor ol' Bart, thinks he's Impulse. Bart: (Imagines both Carol and Preston hitting heads with their dunce hats on) Home: Bart: (Walks through the door) Max: (Looking at his newspaper) So what did you do at the mall today? Bart: (Imagines Max taking his trophy away) -?- Well we where buying a present for, um, Professor Snodgrass. Max: And how many birthdays does Professor Snodgrass have in a year. Bart: (Counts on his fingers) Max: He has one Bart. Only one. But from the looks of it, he has a birthday every time you come home from the mall. Bart: Well we don't wanna look like we forgot his birthday. Max: You've been playing video games haven't you. Bart: (Puts his head down) Yes. But I really want to play and I won't use my super speed. Max: Prove it. (Hands him a pad of paper and a pencil) Bart: (Takes the pad of paper and the pencil) Max: Write. Bart: (Starts to write. Concentrates. Bites his lip) ARRAGH! (Brakes the pencil in half) Max: Told ya. Bart: (Imagines a tourist site with a sign saying the world's biggest ego and Max standing there with an oversized head) Well, what if I practice extra hard? Helen Claiborne: (Walks in) Bart: Pleeeeeeaasse! Helen: Please what? Max: Bart wants to enter another video game competition. Helen: Again? Max: I know, he's almost inhuman. Helen: No, I mean you're not letting him compete again. Max: Me? (Points to himself) Helen: Yes you. Bart: (Imagines Helen stepping on top of the slain Max headed dragon. Smiles) Max: (Annoyed) Fine Bart. You can compete… Bart: (Happy) Yes! Max: As long as you practice. Bart: Whoo-hoo!! (Runs off at super-speed) Max: Mm-hmm. Bart: I know. I was just kidding Max: (Shakes his head) Arcade: Announcer: (Man in tuxedo steps onto the stage) heeell-o boys and girls. Bart: (Whispering to Carol) Doesn't this guy look familiar? Carol: He looks a lot… oh my god, it's Mr. Sheridan. Bart & Preston: (Give surprised looks) Mr. Sheridan/ Announcer: Okay will the six contestants come up here. Bart, Drexler, Preston, and three other kids: (Walk onto the stage. Walk to their controllers) Announcer: (Blows his whistle) Bart: (Moving his joystick fastly. Sticking his tongue out in concentration) Two contestants: (Lose and walk off the stage) Announcer: Oh, only four left. One contestant: (Loses. Walks off the stage) Announcer: Only three more left. Drexler: (Whispers to two kids) Okay now. Two kids: (Cut some wire back stage) Bart: (Moves his controller. Gets frustrated) Hey!!!!! It's not working. My controller's not working! (Quickly runs at super-speed and fixes the two wires back together) Two kids: What?! Bart: (Runs back to his controller) Contestant: (Looks at Bart suspiciously) Drexler: (Thinking to himself) What?! His controller should've been dead by now! (To the two kids) Plan B! One of the two kids: (Flicks a light switch. The lights go off) (The lights turn back on and the Virtual Enhancer 4000 is gone) Contestant: (Angry) The 'Enhancer's gone! (Takes off his sweat shirt and is wearing a green shirt with wires on them. He has two gloves on. Shoots electric bolts around the room) Bart: (Runs to the kid) Contestant: (Grabs Bart's hand and throws him into Drexler) Bart: (To Carol) I can't turn into Impulse. Carol: Sure you can. Just run behind the curtains. Bart: No, I mean I can't. He took my costume ring! Carol: (Gives a scared look) Strange kid/ Contestant: (Looks at the ring. Impulse costume forms around him) Hahahaha!
