Ben 10: Season: 1 Episode: 01

(Vilgax's ship is chasing the smaller blue ship)
Robot Lieutenant: Hull damage: 20 percent, but the system's still operational.
Vilgax: I have come too far to be denied. The Omnitrix shall be mine, and there is not a being in the galaxy that dares stand in my way.

Ben Tennyson: (looking at the clock) Come on. Come on.
Teacher: And I just want to remind you all that I will be teaching summer school this year, and it's not too late to sign up!
Ben Tennyson: Yeah, right. (the bell rings) Yes! Outta here!
Teacher: Everyone, have a good vacation, and I hope to see you all again in the fall. Benjamin, could I have a word with you before you go? (holds up Ben's paper airplane)
(Ben frowns and walks over to the teacher's desk)

(Cash and J.T. back Jamie into a tree)
Cash Murray: Normally, we'd take your money and beat you up. But since it's the last day of school, we're going to give you a break. Now fork over the cash so we can get out of here.
Ben Tennyson: Leave him alone!
J.T.: Get lost, shrimp.
Ben Tennyson: I said, back off!
Cash Murray: Oh, looks like we got us a hero. Suppose we don't wanna back off?
J.T.: What are ya gonna do about it, Tennyson?
(The three stare intently, then Ben attacks; Ben ends up hanging from a tree with Jamie)

Jamie: [sarcastically] Thanks a lot.
Ben Tennyson: I was just trying to help.
Jamie: Next time you wanna play hero, make sure you can back it up.
Grandpa Max: (drives up) Come on, Ben. Let's go. We're burning daylight. I want to make it to the campsite by nightfall.
Ben Tennyson: Uh, Grandpa, a little help here?

Ben Tennyson: (referring to the camping trip) I have so been looking forward to this! (notices Gwen sitting down at a table) What are you doing here? (to his Grandpa) What is she doing here?
Gwen Tennyson: Take it easy, dweeb. This wasn't my idea. Somebody convinced my mom that going camping for the summer would be a good experience for me.
Ben Tennyson: Grandpa, please, tell me you didn't.
Grandpa Max: I thought it would be fun if your cousin came along with us this summer. Is that a problem?
(Ben and Gwen say nothing)

Ben Tennyson': Aw, I can't believe it. I wait all school year to go on this trip, and now the queen of cooties is along for the ride.
Gwen Tennyson: Hey, I had my own vacation already all planned out, too, you know. (pulls out her schedule) Each activity is color-coded so I never did the same thing two days in a row. Now, I'm stuck with my geekazoid cousin going camping for three months.
Ben Tennyson: Geek.
Gwen Tennyson: Jerk.
Grandpa Max: Something tells me it's gonna be a long summer.

Grandpa Max: Chow time. (puts down a bowl of meal worms)
Ben Tennyson: Okay, I give up. What is that?
Grandpa Max: Marinated meal worms. Hard to find them fresh in the states. You know, they're considered a delicacy in some countries.
Gwen Tennyson: And totally gross in others.
Grandpa Max: If these don't sound good, I've got some smoked sheep's tongue in the fridge.
Ben Tennyson: Ugh. Couldn't we just have a burger or something?
Grandpa Max: Nonsense. This summer's gonna be an adventure for your taste buds. I'll grab the tongue.
Ben Tennyson: (To Gwen) Okay, I have a half-eaten bag of corn chips and a candy bar in my backpack. What do you got?
Gwen Tennyson: Some rice cakes and hard candy.
Ben Tennyson: Think we can make them last the whole summer?
(Both sulk)

Robot Lieutenant: Their propulsion systems have been destroyed.
Vilgax: Prepare to board. I want the Omnitrix, now!

Grandpa Max: Who wants to roast marshmallows?
(no response)
Grandpa Max: Okay, um... How about we tell scary stories?
Ben Tennyson: Scarier than having to spend the summer with your freak of a cousin? (chortles)
Gwen Tennyson: I'd like to, Grandpa, but I'm busy doing a web search on cures for extreme doofusness. Nothing yet, Ben, but let's not give up hope.
Grandpa Max: Aw, come on, you two. We're all in this together. You can mope around like this all summer, or we can have some fun. Now what do you say?
Gwen Tennyson: I vote for moping.
Ben Tennyson: I'm gonna take a walk. Smell ya around, Gwen.
Grandpa Max: I, uh, think they're starting to grow on each other.

Ben Tennyson: Aw, man. This is gonna be the worst vacation ever. I might as well have gone to summer school. (a ball transporter goes over head) Whoa! A shooting star! (transport comes down where he is; Ben screams and jumps out of the way, then goes over to the transport) Looks like a satellite or something. (falls into the crater next to the transport) A watch. What's a watch doing in outer space? (the Omnitrix jumps on his wrist) Get off me! Get off, get off!

Grandpa Max: Hmm. Ben's been gone a while. Well, I guess he can't get into too much trouble out here.
Gwen Tennyson: Unless he wound up bear food. (Grandpa Max frowns at her) Hey, I can dream, can't I?

Heatblast: AAAAAAH! I'm on fire! I'M ON FIRE! Hey, I'm on fire, and.... I'm okay! Check it out; I'm totally hot. [laughs, then looks at a tree] Oh, yeah. Uh-huh. Here it goes! [throws a fireball at it, burning a hole in it] That's what I'm talkin' about. Likin' it. [throws another one through several trees, then realizes his mistake] Wait, STOP! (trees catch on fire) Uh-oh. [tries with no success to stomp out a fire] Oh, man. I'm gonna get so busted for this!

Gwen Tennyson: (notices a forest fire) What's that?
Grandpa Max: Looks like the start of a forest fire. We better let the ranger station know. Probably some darn fool camper out there messing around with something he shouldn't. BEN!

(as the forest burns)
Heatblast: This would be so cool if it weren't so NOT cool.

Heatblast: I know I look weird, but there's no reason to be scared of-
[Gwen hits him with a fire extinguisher and sprays at him, causing him to cough.]
Gwen Tennyson: I don't know what you are, but you'll stay down there if you know what's good for you. [Heatblast puts her shoe on fire and laughs as she puts it out, Gwen raises her fire extinguisher to hit Heatblast] I warned you!
Heatblast: Don't even think about it, freak.
Gwen Tennyson: [recognizing Ben by the way he talks] Ben? Is that you? What happened?
Heatblast: Well, when I was walking this meteor fell from the sky and almost munched me, except it wasn't a meteor or a satellite, but this cool watch thing that jumped up onto my wrist and when I tried to get it off, I suddenly was on fire, only it didn't hurt when I was accidentally starting this mega forest fire.
Grandpa Max: (running up) Gwen, are you alri... (sees Heatblast) What in blazes?
Gwen Tennyson: Hey, Grandpa, guess who.
Heatblast: It's me, Grandpa.
Grandpa Max: (after realizing Ben is Heatblast) Ben? What happened to you?
Heatblast: Well, when I was walking this meteor...
Gwen Tennyson: (cuts Heatblast off) Um, excuse me. Major forest fire burning out of control, remember?
Heatblast: What do we do?
Grandpa Max: Backfire. Start a new fire and let it burn into the old fire. They'll snuff each other out. Think you can do it, Ben?
Heatblast: Shooting flames, I can definitely do.

Grandpa Max: And you say that this watch just jumped up and clamped onto your wrist?
Heatblast: Hey, this time it wasn't my fault. I swear.
Grandpa Max: I believe you, Ben.
Gwen Tennyson: Think he's gonna stay a monster forever?
Grandpa Max: He's not a monster, he's an alien!
(Heatblast and Gwen stare at him suspiciously)
Grandpa Max: Uh, I mean look at him, what else could he be?
Heatblast: I don't wanna be fire guy forever. How am I suppose to play Little League this fall if I charcoal the ball every time I catch a pop-fly?
Grandpa Max: Don't worry, Ben. We'll figure this thing out.
(the Omnitrix beeps and Ben reverts to his human form)
Ben Tennyson: I'm me again.
Gwen Tennyson: Aw, too bad. I liked you better when you were a briquette.

Vilgax: [to Robot Lieutenant] What do you mean it's not there? This battle nearly costs me my life, and you say the Omnitrix is no longer aboard the transport?!
Robot Lieutenant: Sensors indicate a probe was jettisoned from the ship just before boarding. It landed on the planet below.
Vilgax: (To another nearby robot) Go. Bring it to me.

Ben Tennyson: (messing with the Omnitrix) Huh. I wonder what this does.
Gwen Tennyson: (surprises Ben) Caught ya! (laughs)
Ben Tennyson: (mimicking Gwen's laugh) Very funny, like your face.
Gwen Tennyson: Grandpa said not to mess with that thing.
Ben Tennyson: Yeah. So, what's your point?
Gwen Tennyson: Did your parents drop you when you were a baby?
Ben Tennyson: Come on. You can't tell me you aren't a little bit curious what else this thing can do?
Gwen Tennyson: Not in the least.
Ben Tennyson: You sure you're related to me? (referring to the Omnitrix) Look, if I can figure this thing out, maybe I can help people. I mean, really help them, not just, you know, make things worse.
Gwen Tennyson: So, what did it feel like going all alien like that?
Ben Tennyson: It freaked me out at first. It was like I was me, but it was like I was someone else. (the Omnitrix pops up) Hey, I think I figured out how I did it. Should I try it again? Just once?
Gwen Tennyson: I wouldn't.
Ben Tennyson: No duh, you wouldn't. (activates the Omnitrix)

Gwen Tennyson: (referring to Wildmutt) Ew! This thing's even uglier than you are normally! Bow wow, put a flea collar on this mutt. (Wildmutt roars) And no eyes? What good is this one? It can't see. (tries to hit Wildmutt with a stick, Wildmutt jumps onto the RV) Okay. So maybe it's not a total loser. (Wildmutt jumps in front of her) Ew, two words: breath mints.

Gwen Tennyson: (Ben turns into Wildmutt and stalks off) Ben? Get back here. Ben! I'm gonna tell Grandpa that you turned into a freaky animal monster thing and went swinging around the forest when he told you not to! Oh, this is a majorly weird day.

Ben Tennyson: (After destroying first drone) Yes! (Second drone arrives) Whoa. Not good.
Gwen Tennyson: (Hits drone with a shovel) Ugh! Back off, sparky. No flying tree-trimmer is going to hurt my cousin. (Hits the drone several more times)
Ben Tennyson: Never thought I'd say this, but am I glad to see you.

Grandpa Max: I was worried that you might get popular with that thing on your wrist. That's why I asked you not to fool around with it until we know what the heck it is.
Ben Tennyson: Sorry, Grandpa, but at least I figured out how to make it work. All you do is press this button, then, when the ring pops up, just twist it until you see the guy you wanna be, slam it down, and - bammo! - you're one of ten super-cool alien dudes.
Gwen Tennyson: What about STAYING a super-cool alien dude and not transforming back into plain old pizza face?
Ben Tennyson: I kinda haven't figured that part out yet.
Grandpa Max: With a device as powerful as that watch clamped on you, my guess is we better help you learn... fast.
Ben Tennyson: Alright!
Ranger: (On radio) Mayday. Mayday! Somebody, help us! We're under attack by some sort of, I know you're not going to believe me but, robot.
Ben Tennyson: Sounds just like those things that attacked me. Must be looking for the watch. Those people are in trouble because of me. I think I can help them.
Gwen Tennyson: Uh, you? What are you gonna do about it, Tennyson?
(Ben looks at the Omnitrix and then smiles)

Ben Tennyson: (activates Omnitrix) Yeah. (starts turning Omnitrix) Eenie, meany, miney, here goes. (presses in Omnitrix and turns into Diamondhead)

Gwen Tennyson: (referring to Diamondhead) So, what can this guy do?
Diamondhead: I don't know, but I bet it's gonna be cool.

Diamondhead: (after seeing the giant robot) Looks like papa robot this time. I'll get gear-head's attention, you guys get the campers to safety.
(giant robot grabs park ranger)
Diamondhead: Leave him alone! You want someone to pick on, try me.

Ranger: (as Diamondhead fights the giant robot) What is going on here?
Gwen Tennyson: You probably wouldn't believe me if I told you. Now come on.
(The ranger hesitates, but runs once the giant robot throws Diamondhead into his truck)

Diamondhead: [after saving Gwen] So, we even?
Gwen Tennyson: Even. [the robot grabs Diamondhead]
Diamondhead: Uh oh!

Diamondhead: (Pointing to his chest, taunting the giant robot) C'mon. Burn one in here.
Grandpa Max: Get out of there. Run! (the giant robot blasts Diamondhead)
Diamondhead: (reflects the blast) What comes around goes around. Let's see how you like it, ya techno-freak. (cuts the giant robot in half with the reflected blast)

(after Diamondhead defeats the giant robot)
Gwen and Grandpa Max: All right!
Grandpa Max: Way to go, Be- (people stare) uh Diamond-headed guy!
Diamondhead: Oh yeah! Who's bad?! (jumps up and down) Yeah!
(Gwen and Grandpa Max wave at him to leave, shaking their heads)
Diamondhead: Well, I think my work here is done. (runs away)

[Ben destroys Vilgax's robot.]
Vilgax: Failure?! Unbelievable! The puny Earth being that is keeping the Omnitrix from me will soon hang on my trophy wall!

Grandpa Max: Where's Ben?
Gwen Tennyson: Haven't seen him since breakfast. [Ben, in XLR8 form, arrives back at the RV]
Grandpa Max: Ben?
XLR8: Yup. Hey, check this out! [Ben uses XLR8's super-speed to break camp and pack the baggage in record time.] Pretty fast, huh? (the Omnitirx times out; XLR8 turns back to Ben)
Ben Tennyson: I think this is gonna be the best summer ever.
Grandpa Max: Absolutely.
Gwen Tennyson: Certainly going to be interesting. So, where'd you go anyway?
Ben Tennyson: Just had to take care of a couple of things before our vacation really got rolling.
(Scene switches to the two bullies hanging from a tree)
Cash Murray: Dude, how'd we get up here?
J.T.: Uh, I'm not sure. It all happened so fast.
Cash Murray: Hey, somebody? Anybody? Little help up here, please.
