Framed (Ben 10) Grudge Match (Ben 10)


(two masked robbers run by Gwen, knocking her drink out of her hand)
Gwen Tennyson: Hey, that was a Mega... (the robbers glare at her) ...gulp.

Ben Tennyson: (sighs) When are these losers ever gonna learn?

Grandpa Max: Ben! Get back inside!
Ben Tennyson: Are you kidding me? These guys are a piece of cake, and Fourarms likes icing.

Narrator: Everybody's life is a story. There are the good parts, the bad, the funny, and sometimes the very, very scary. And when we tell a story, we never tell it the same way twice. So, here's one way to tell the story of Ben Tennyson, who one day found himself living a life that seemed to catch him by surprise.

Ben Tennyson: (after finding out the Omnitrix is missing) This is so not happening!

Grandpa Max: Ben! Don't just stand there!

Ben Tennyson: (alarmed) Grandpa, where's the watch?
Grandpa Max: What watch?

Gwen Tennyson: Grandpa, that was amazing!
Ben Tennyson: Amazing? He's been doing that all summer. (referring to Omnitrix) No way did the watch just slip off my wrist.
Grandpa Max: Ben, what are you talking about? When I picked you up, you weren't wearing a watch.

Vilgax: (after watching the Omnitrix's pod fly toward Earth) No one controls the Omnitrix but me!

Ben Tennyson: I'm fine. I've been fine all summer.
Gwen Tennyson: All summer? News flash: this is our first day together.
Ben Tennyson: That's impossible. We've been on the road for weeks, taking on aliens, kicking bad-guy butt... I've gone hero, like, a thousand times.
Gwen Tennyson: T-heh! You, a hero?

Grandpa Max: Ben, I got you from Madison Elementary School today, just two hours ago.
Ben Tennyson: No way! Two weeks ago we were on Mount Rushmore kicking Vilgax's butt.
(Startled, Grandpa Max almost loses control of the RV)
Ben Tennyson: Whoa, Grandpa, are you okay?
Grandpa Max: Yeah. Yeah, uh, just dodged a skunk on the road.

Ben Tennyson: That's Vilgax, only the worst alien in the whole entire universe. But since he's history, we don't have to worry about him.
Gwen Tennyson: (mock relief) Phew, well, that's good news.

Gwen Tennyson: (to Ben; referring to Vilgax) So who is this vile guy?

Ben Tennyson: Is the heat getting to both of you? I'm talking about the Omnitrix. (Grandpa Max stares suspiciously)
Gwen Tennyson: I'll help you look for it. So, uh, what does it look like?
Ben Tennyson: (annoyed) Look like? You've only seen it like a million times. What is going on with you two?
Gwen Tennyson: (feels Ben's forehead) Nothing. Maybe you have heat stroke or something.

Ben Tennyson: Will you two just listen to me? He's real. You gotta believe me.
Gwen Tennyson: Oh, yeah, like when we HAD to believe you when you saw Bigfoot at our family picnic?
Ben Tennyson: Okay, THAT was a simple mistake. And Uncle Manny NEEDS to shave his back hair.

Grandpa Max: We're here.
Gwen Tennyson: Wow, it's beautiful, Grandpa.
Grandpa Max: (pleased) I knew you would like it.
Ben Tennyson: That's why you brought us here on the first night of our trip.

Ben Tennyson: (to Grandpa Max) You know I'm not making this up, right, Grandpa? Don't you remember? You took Vilgax out with some super high-tech weapon thing.
Grandpa Max: (spits out drink) Um, weapon? Uh, Ben, why don't you help me set up camp.

Gwen Tennyson: Oh boy, here we go again.
Ben Tennyson: (happily) That's it! Yeah! (runs toward Gwen and gives her a hug)

Ben Tennyson: I've gone back in time. That's why I'm not wearing the Omnitrix. But I'll find it here in the woods, put it on, and zap! Everything will be back to normal.
Gwen Tennyson: (laughs) You? Normal? Yeah, right! Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm headed back to the real world.

Ben Tennyson: (watching the pod fly toward the forest) The pod! I knew it!

Ben Tennyson: (seeing Gwen with the Omnitrix) That's it, the Omnitrix!
Gwen Tennyson: Well, I found it.
Ben Tennyson: No, I found it first!

Ben Tennyson: It's the most powerful thing in the universe. Now give it here!
Gwen Tennyson: (above Ben) Only if you say please.
Ben Tennyson: (struggling and losing) Please!
Gwen Tennyson: (holding Ben by his head) Actually, pretty please.
Ben Tennyson: (annoyed) Pretty please!

Gwen Tennyson: (with the Omnitrix on her wrist) I wonder how it works.
Ben Tennyson: Be really careful. Only a trained pro like me can control it.
Gwen Tennyson: You, a trained pro? More like a trained seal.

Gwen Tennyson: What will this do? (touches the Omnitrix) Oh! I got zapping powers? Cool!

Gwen Tennyson: (as Heatblast) Whoa! I'm on fire, but I don't feel like it!
Ben Tennyson: Because you're Heatblast. You control fire! Fireballs, fire breath!
Gwen Tennyson: (as Heatblast) That sounds like fun.
Ben Tennyson: Careful. You could start a forest fire.
Gwen Tennyson: (as Heatblast) Only an idiot would set the forest on fire. Now out of my way!

Ben Tennyson: (after seeing Gwen write "Gwen" in the sky) Whoa! How'd you do that? It took me like a month to learn how to do that with Heatblast.
Gwen Tennyson: (as Heatblast) Hey, when you got it, you got it. It looks like I've got this thing down.

Gwen Tennyson: (as Heatblast) So, can the watch turn me into something else?
Gwen Tennyson: (as Grey Matter; being chased by a raccoon) Ben, this isn't funny!
Ben Tennyson: (laughs) To who?

Ben Tennyson: (picking up Gwen as Grey Matter) Who's got this alien stuff down now? (the robot drone lands near them) The drone! Oh, no, the campsite!

Ben Tennyson: I'd say "nice to see you again" if it was.

Grandpa Max: Ben, what's going on? (sees Gwen as Diamondhead) Who's that?
Gwen Tennyson: (as Diamondhead) Grandpa, it's me, Gwen!

Gwen Tennyson: (as Diamondhead) Let's go, ugly! Hit me with your best shot!
Grandpa Max: Gwen!
Ben Tennyson: Don't worry, she's got it, Grandpa.

Grandpa Max: You're outmatched. Let your cousin fight those things, whatever she is.
Ben Tennyson: But, I'm the hero!
Grandpa Max: No, you're in danger! Come on. Help me get everyone out of here.

Gwen Tennyson: (as Diamondhead) Projectiles? Cool! (shoots diamond shards at the robot drone) Take that!

Gwen Tennyson: (as Diamondhead) Ready to give up? (robot drone shoots at her) I'll take that as a no.

Ben Tennyson: (as the robot drone tries to rip Gwen's arm off) Slice it and dice it, Gwen!

Ben Tennyson: (watching Gwen trying to fight the robot drone) Oops. Forgot. That didn't work when I tried it, either.

Ben Tennyson: (after seeing Gwen get blasted by the robot drone) Gwen!

Ben Tennyson: (seeing Gwen thrown into the building by the robot drone) Ooh! I remember that blast.

Grandpa Max: Whoa. She's good.
Ben Tennyson: So was I.

Camper: What is that thing?
Grandpa Max: That's no thing. That's my granddaughter.

Vilgax: My drones are all destroyed! Whoever has the Omnitrix possesses great power, but now they'll have to deal with me!

Ben Tennyson: (waking up in the RV) Grandpa? Gwen?

(Ben leaves the tent and finds Gwen outside)
Ben Tennyson: Hey, when did you get up?
Gwen Tennyson: I never went to bed. First, I was a high-tech alien and merged with my laptop to triple its processing speed, and then I turned into this water creature to catch us some lunch, then I became this speed alien to go home and pick up these clothes I forgot.

Ben Tennyson: The Omnitrix is a complicated piece of alien technology. It's not about having fun.
Gwen Tennyson: Wanna bet? Follow me, unless you're afraid.
Ben Tennyson: Not!

Gwen Tennyson: (to Ben) Hey, that was a tough spare.
Ben Tennyson: I'm not mad about the bowling.
Gwen Tennyson: So what are you mad about?
Ben Tennyson: I don't know what's worse, that I'll never have the watch again or that you're better with it than I was.

Gwen Tennyson: (cautiously) That's not a big bowling ball, is it?
Ben Tennyson: It's Vilgax, and he's not supposed to be here!

(Vilgax attacks)
Gwen Tennyson: (tapping the Omnitrix furiously) Who should I become next?
Ben Tennyson: It's gotta recharge.
Gwen Tennyson: Ugh, no fair!
Ben Tennyson: No kidding!

Vilgax: (to Gwen) The Omnitrix, now!
Ben Tennyson: (picks up bowling pin and runs toward Vilgax) Aah! (Vilgax throws Ben across bowling alley) Unh!

Gwen Tennyson: (to Vilgax) You sure we can't work out a deal?

Gwen Tennyson: You wouldn't hurt a girl, w-would you?
Vilgax: Hurt? No. I have something much worse in mind for you.

Ben Tennyson: Okay, I know you won't believe me, but Vilgax is-
Grandpa Max: Here, and he wants the Omnitrix, so he took Gwen.
Ben Tennyson: (shocked) How did you know?
Grandpa Max: In dash intergalactic monitoring system. It went haywire about a half hour ago.

Ben Tennyson: So you believed me this whole time?
Grandpa Max: Well, not at first, but then I realized that you knew way too much.

Ben Tennyson: Why'd all this happen?
Grandpa Max: The one thing I learned in all my years as a Plumber was forget everything you ever learned 'cause, sometimes, it'll never make sense.
Ben Tennyson: That wasn't really the answer I was hoping for, Grandpa.

Grandpa Max: (to Ben) Since you've lived all this before, what's Vilgax going to do to Gwen?
Ben Tennyson: Let's just say, you had better floor-it.

Grandpa Max: (gives Ben a weapon) Here, this may come in handy.

Gwen Tennyson: Um, can't you just slip the watch off of me?
Vilgax: And what FUN would that be?

Vilgax: (to Gwen) Now trust me, it won't hurt a bit.

Grandpa Max: So how did I get on board the first time?
Ben Tennyson: You rammed it.
Grandpa Max: Well, if we survived the first time... (pushes button on dashboard and the floor opens up, revealing a high-tech weapon)

Gwen Tennyson: Grandpa!
Grandpa Max: Claws off my granddaughter, Vilgax!
Vilgax: Tennyson!

Ben Tennyson: (referring to Gwen chained up as Vilgax's hostage) A little scarier than a trip to the dentist, huh?
Gwen Tennyson: Uh-huh.

Vilgax: (to Grandpa Max) You'll never destroy me, you worthless human!
Ben Tennyson: But I will! (shoots Vilgax with Grandpa Max's weapon)

Ben Tennyson: (referring to Grandpa Max's weapon) Think I can get one of these, Grandpa?

(Grandpa Max ends up with the loose Omnitrix instead of Ben)
Ben Tennyson: No! Now I'm never going hero again!
Grandpa Max: You ask me, you already did. As Ben.

Gwen Tennyson: (as alarm goes off in Vilgax's ship) Sounds like we're losing power!
Ben Tennyson: Not if I can help it! (to Grandpa Max) You gotta go Upgrade!
Grandpa Max: Upgrade?
Ben Tennyson: Just trust me.

Grandpa Max: (transforms into Upgrade) Now what?
Ben Tennyson: Time to add a few extra options to the RV.

Upgrade (Grandpa Max): (as Vilgax tries to break into the RV) I don't think so!

Grandpa Max: (getting to be a hero himself) Huh. I could get used to this.

Narrator: So many ways to tell a story, and that's what makes them so interesting. Sometimes, you never could predict how they're going to turn out.
