  • (It is morning at Dexter's house. Dexter's parents are walking, tired.)
  • Dexter and Dee Dee: Morning, mom! Morning, dad!
  • (They turn around. Dexter's Dad has a scratchy beard. Dexter's Mom is wearing a blanket on her head and has green cream on her mouth. They look angry. Dexter and Dee Dee cower in fear. Dexter's parents get two mugs and fill them up with coffee. They drink the coffee, and in a flash, they turn into their normal selfs.)
  • Dexter's Dad and Mom: (zip up to kids) Morning, kids!
  • Dexter's Dad: Morning, dear!
  • Dexter's Mom: Morning, hon!
  • (They kiss.)
  • Dexter's Dad: Smell that fresh good morning air! (looks at watch) Whoa-ho-ho! I'm almost late for work!
  • Dexter's Mom: (pours coffee into Dad's mug) Here you go, dear!
  • Dexter's Dad: Thanks! (drinks coffee and work hat appears on him and is holding suitcase) How's about one for the road?
  • Dexter's Mom: (pours coffee into Dad's mug) Sure thing, hon!
  • (Dexter's Dad drinks the coffee and appears in a red car. He drives off to work.)
  • Dexter's Mom: Bye, dear! I guess I should get going as well! (drinks coffee and vacuum and dustbrush appears) (zips off with vacuum) Bye-bye, kids!
  • (Dexter and Dee Dee look at each other. They look at the coffee.)
  • Dexter: Uh, why don't you try it, Dee Dee?
  • Dee Dee: No, you try it.
  • Dexter: Uh, why don't you try it, Dee Dee?
  • Dee Dee: No, you try it.
  • Dexter: No, you try it.
  • Dee Dee: Uh, you try it.
  • Dexter: You try it.
  • Dee Dee: You try it.
  • Dexter: No, you try it.
  • (As they continue arguing, it is now nighttime.)
  • Dee Dee: Uh, you try it.
  • Dexter: You try it!
  • Dee Dee: Uh-uh, you try it! Is it legal?
  • Dexter: (laughs) Of course it's legal! It's not in the cabinet that has a lock on it.
  • (Cuts to a shot of the coffee in the mug.)
  • Dee Dee: (offscreen) Hey, yeah. Your right. (reflection shows up in the coffee) It's just stinky, icky, poopy, yucky water. Blegh!
  • Dexter: (reflection also appears in water) So drink it!
  • (Cuts to Dexter and Dee Dee looking at the coffee.)
  • Dee Dee: Mmm... Okay. (picks up coffee and drinks it)
  • Dexter: Well?
  • (Dee Dee is still smiling for two seconds. Then coffee begins leaking from her mouth.)
  • Dee Dee: I like it. Your turn!
  • Dexter: Oh no, you can't fool me!
  • (Dee Dee picks up Dexter and flips him at a different direction. She steps on his foot, and his mouth opens up. Then she spills coffee into his mouth. Then she gets off of Dexter's foot.)
  • Dexter: (conceals his mouth) Mm-mm, sure is good.
  • Dee Dee: (laughs)
  • (There is silence. Then suddenly, Dexter's eyes sprout open.)
  • Dexter: Do you feel anything yet?
  • Dee Dee: (eyes sprout open too) No, now what, genius?
  • Dexter: I guess we hit the hay.
  • Dee Dee: Okay.
  • (She and Dexter leave the kitchen.)
  • Dee Dee: I don't see what the big deal is.
  • Dexter: Yeah I don't feel a thing.
  • (They go upstairs, saying stuff the same time. Then they go to their bedrooms. They go into their closets and put on their pajamas. Then they go to bed.)
  • Dexter and Dee Dee: Ahh. Good night.
  • (Then, they go to sleep. In a few moments, their eyes go open with yellow sparkles above them. Their morning clothes appear on them. They get out of bed to do a lot of things with asterisks in their eyes. Dexter repeatedly tightens a bolt on a machine with a wrench and types on his computer, and Dee Dee repeatedly jumps on her bed and brushes Darbie's hair. They become tired and their eyes go bloodshot. They go downstairs to drink more coffee. Then asterisks appear in their eyes again. They go back upstairs and keep doing their previous activities with new activities like Dee Dee bouncing a ball and squeezing an eye-popping martian toy, Dexter zooming in his lab wearing a jetpack and zapping something. The montage continues with Dexter and Dee Dee drinking coffee and asterisks appearing in their eyes. The montage continues until Dee Dee is holding the coffee pot upside down and no coffee comes out.)
  • Dee Dee: (with bloodshot eyes) I guess we're all out of coffee.
  • Dexter's Dad: (snaps awake) Huh?
  • Dexter: So what do we do now?
  • Dee Dee: (throws coffee pot away) We kick this habit.
  • (The coffee pot rolls up to Dexter's Dad's feet. The camera pans up to him with red eyes.)
  • Dexter's Dad: Hmm... What the? (cuts to mugs leaking coffee, coffee pot, and milk) The kitchen's a mess. Something wrong here. (eyes go open) (searches through cabinets) Coffee, coffee, where's the coffee? Hello, coffee? WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THE COFFEE?!?!?!
  • Dee Dee: Uh...
  • Dexter and Dee Dee: We drank it all.
  • Dexter's Dad: You... drank the coffee? (laughs) You two drank the coffee?
  • Dexter and Dee Dee: (giggle)
  • Dexter's Dad: (laughing) (goes upset) Where did I go wrong? I thought I was a good father. I thought I brought you kids up right. You see, kids, coffee is what we adults need to get started in the morning. It's the key to our ignition. You kids don't need it. No. You've got youth. We adults need the coffee. But now, all we have is... (holds up empty coffee pot) THIS!!! (tries to get a drop from the coffee pot but nothing comes out) Empty! A mere shell of its former self! I've seen some pretty horrible things in my life. But this... this is just... SICK! (sobbing)
  • (Dexter's Mom comes into the kitchen.)
  • Dexter's Mom: What's the matter, dear?
  • Dexter's Dad: (whispering stuff) Coffee.
  • Dexter's Mom: (eyes go open) ..............No... (Dexter's Dad nods) (sobbing) NOOOOOOOO!!! (stops sobbing and lightbulb appears) (goes to a cupboard and hand appears from it holding a coffee can) Gracias, Juan!
  • (Cuts to the inside of a cupboard with a small Spanish man and a burro inside.)
  • Juan: It's alright. (closes cupboard)
  • Dexter's Mom: Oh, honey!
  • (Cuts to Dexter's Dad sobbing on the empty coffee pot. Then he turns around.)
  • Dexter's Dad: (gasp) Coffee! Look, kids! Coffee! I'll take mine black with plenty of cream and sugar!
  • (Cuts to Dexter and Dee standing in front of Dexter's parents in their morning clothes drinking coffee.)
  • Dexter's Dad: Everything is going to be okay! We had coffee after all! But what if we didn't? (episode ends)
