Tommy Pickles[edit]

  • We're off the see the lizard.
  • Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of yum!

Angelica Pickles[edit]

  • Hi, Uncle Stu. Sorry to hear your pony is so slow.
  • Hey, babies. Knock it off! Cynthia and me are trying to watch TV! [Dil sees Cynthia and swipes her from Angelica] Hey, hands off the merchandise, pinkie.
  • They took Cynthia, Spike! Come on! You're gonna be my butthound! We gotta search every doghouse, playhouse, tree house and doll house! I want those foogitives back in custardy! [Spike runs off, with Angelica in tow] Whoa! Bad dog! Bad dog! STOP!
  • Hey, Spike! Where are you going, you dumb dog?


  • United Express Driver: Uh, pardon me. Pickup for Pickles to Japan?
  • Air Crewman: I've turned this plane upside down, and I assure you there are no children.
  • Reporter #1: Mr. Pickles, is it true you shipped your own children to Tokyo in a wooden box?
  • Charlotte Pickles: Hold on, Jonathan. There's an alarming crowd at my in-law's indicating either a yard sale or a family tragedy. Let me get back to you.
  • Lieutenant Klavin: Mrs. Pickles, I know this is hard for you, but can you identify this binky?


[First lines; The movie begins with the camera is in a jungle and moves in the direction of a mountain in which there is a hidden temple surrounded with Reptar statues. The Rugrats climb the cliff and are at the cave's entrance. The temple is dark and gloomy inside, as we are there, looking towards the outside, as the Rugrats race in. Once in the cave, Chuckie stops]
Chuckie Finster: Ahh! This place give me the juicebumps!
[A group of bats fly out of the mouth of one of the Reptar statues]
Phil DeVille: Maybe we should go back!
Lil DeVille: Very back!
Tommy Pickles: No, We can't go back now, you guys! Okey-Dokey Jones never goes back! [The Rugrats move near a door-shaped like Angelica's head. They act surprised. Inside the "mouth" is a bright, orange-colored light] Hang on to your diapies, babies, we're goin' in!
Chuckie Finster: [Voice-over] That's Tommy Pickles. He's the bravest baby I ever knowed! [As Chuckie talks, Tommy races toward the door. As he gets there, the door slams, while he raced in there once it's open, and after he enters, it slams shut again. Phil and Lil look surprised] And that's Phil and Lil. Uh, uh, well, they, they like worms. [Phil and Lil hold hands and rush in through the door, which closed behind them] And I'm Chuckie. Uh... I'm not so brave. [Chuckie is hesitant to enter, but is whipped in by Tommy] But that's okay, 'cause I got Tommy, and he's my bestest friend. [giggles]
[The Rugrats run to a tower on which is perched an idol. They climb the tower to reach the idol. While trying to take the statuette, the idol becomes a banana split and a trap is released, which causes a boulder to roll towards them]
Chuckie Finster: Watch out!
[The babies starts to shout while running like the wind to try escape the boulder]
Tommy Pickles: Keep moving! It's right behind us!
[Suddenly, the floor opens itself in front of them. Tommy, Phil and Lil make the jump, but Chuckie misses his, hanging on the brink]
Chuckie Finster: Tommy! Help me!
Tommy Pickles: Come on, Chuckie!
[Back to reality: The boulder was a very pregnant Didi's stomach and body]
Didi Pickles: Tommy! [The babies scream and run away] You kids shouldn't be playing in here!
[The Rugrats run away at full speed]
Chuckie Finster: [Voice-over] We thought the fun times would last forever. [The Rugrats run face-first into glass patio door, then fall over] But we was wrong!

Didi Pickles: Oh, my.
[Betty holds onto Didi as she picks up the Rugrats]
Betty DeVille: Upsy-daisy, Didi.
Didi Pickles: Thanks.
[Betty opens the patio door and let the Rugrats go out. The grown-ups are having a baby shower for Didi]
Susie Carmichael: Thank you for inviting me to your baby shower, Mrs. Pickles.
[Camera zooms out for a panoramic shot of the whole party]
Didi Pickles: Glad you could be here, Susie.
Woman Guest: What a pretty party dress, Angelica.
Angelica Pickles: Thank you. My mommy's assistant bought it especially for my Aunt Didi's party. [Susie laughs while making fun of Angelica's dress] Don't say a word.
[Along the fence, Aunt Miriam is in front of a blackboard, taking bets on the new baby's weight]
Aunt Miriam: All right, I got $20 on 8 pounds, 6 ounces. 8 pounds 6. Who's got 8-7?
Male Guest: I'm in for 12!
Aunt Miriam: 12 pounds? What are you, crazy?
Chaz Finster: Gosh, you can hardly tell she's gained any weight.
[While turning over, Didi accidentally knocks over the table with her stomach]
Woman Guest: Oh, don't worry.
Chaz Finster: I mean, you know from behind.
Minka Kerpackter: There you are, Didila. Come. Look what we got for you. Boris, move your tuchus.
Didi Pickles: A goat? Oh, Mom, you shouldn't have.
Minka Kerpackter: Nothing better for the little bubula than goat's milk.
Boris Kropotkin: Except maybe yak. But you try finding good yak these days. [The babies run and bump into the goat and it bleats] He's saying, "Hello". There you go, kinderwund, some chocolate coins.
[The Rugrats take the coins and hide their selves under the table]
Woman Guest: Everything I, oh...
[On way to table, Chuckie clumsily bumps into the ladies, they all gasp. Pan to bottom of table]
Phil DeVille: Aren't you gonna eat it, Tommy?
Tommy Pickles: Nope. I'm saving it for my baby sister.
Chuckie Finster: Oh, you mean, she finally came?
Tommy Pickles: Not yet, but they're giving her this big party, so I'm pretty sure today's the day.
Lil DeVille: Do you think she got losted on her way to the party?
Tommy Pickles: Hmm, I don't know. Maybe we better go look for her. Come on!
[The Rugrats climb out from under the table]
Chuckie Finster: Uh, but, Tommy, she could be anywheres.
[Chuckie accidentally bumps into Didi's stomach]
Betty DeVille: Watch it, pups.
Didi Pickles: Careful.
[Charlotte arrives, and as per usual, she's talking to Jonathan on her cell phone]
Charlotte Pickles: [on phone] I'll get back to you, Jonathan. I've got to say "hi" to the life of the party. [to Didi, as she pats her stomach with her cellphone] How's our little man?
Didi Pickles: I told you, Charlotte, Dr. Lipschitz says it's a girl.
Betty DeVille: Ha! That windbag thought Phil and Lil were intestinal gas.
Aunt Miriam: Face it, dolly. Riding high, it's a guy.
Charlotte Pickles: Well, you know what they say, "Born under Venus, look for a-" [Didi looks surprised for a moment. Charlotte's phone then rings, interrupting her conversation. She immediately answers] Hello?
Didi Pickles: Now, now, Dr. Lipschitz is the expert. I don't see any of you with a PHD in Latin.
Betty DeVille: Yeah, pig Latin maybe. Well, let's just hope for Tommy's sake it's a girl. I'd hate to think how much my pups would be squabbling if they were both boys.
Didi Pickles: Uh, uh, uh. Let's not do any gender stereotyping. After all, Stu and Drew are brothers, and they get along just fine.

[Inside the basement, where Stu and Drew are arguing angrily]
Stu Pickles: Pushy!
Drew Pickles: Lazy!
Stu Pickles: Bossy!
Drew Pickles: Inconsiderate!
Stu Pickles: Nosy!
Drew Pickles: Good for nothing!
Stu Pickles: Busybody!
Drew Pickles: We're talking about a real job, Stu, with benefits!
Stu Pickles: I'm not going to waste my life as a clock-punching, paper-pushing, bean-counting... [Drew gasps in shock] Oh, no offense.
[Stu pulls down his welding mask and proceeds to weld]
Drew Pickles: You barely make ends meet now. You got no insurance, no savings, and another kid on the way!
Stu Pickles: For your information, bro, I am working on something right now that is going to put this branch of the Pickles family on easy street. [he puts down his welding mask, but Drew angrily lifts it up again]
Drew Pickles: What is it this time, huh, an electric sponge?
Stu Pickles: Of course not! That was last year. [reveals his skeleton of the Reptar Wagon] This, this is the Reptar Wagon! The ultimate in toddler transportation! The perfect children's toy!
[Lou fixes an old radio as he talks]
Lou Pickles: In my day, we had plenty of fun just throwin' rocks at each other. Big bag of dirt clods, that's what the kids want.
Stu Pickles: The Reptar Corporation is holding a toy design contest and the winner gets $500!
Drew Pickles: [sarcastically] Ooh!
Stu Pickles: And there'll be plenty more if this toy's a hit, and I'll be famous!
Drew Pickles: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. That's what you said when you built that stupid thing.
[Drew points to a Dactar glider, which is hanging suspended from the ceiling]
Stu Pickles: Maybe Dactar was a little bit complex, but... this... this... watch! [speaking into a microphone with his normal voice] I am Reptar! Hear me roar!
Reptar Wagon: [Stu's voice, distorted] I am Reptar! Hear me roar!
[The Reptar Wagon spits fire across the garage. Drew jumps out of the way while Stu runs up and puts the fire out with his extinguisher]
Lou Pickles: [putting out some flames on his sleeve] Con-flam it! Can't a man work in his own basement without gettin' barbecued?!
Stu Pickles: Okay, so maybe real fire isn't the best idea for a children's toy.
[Drew's shirt is smoldering as he glares at Stu, who quickly sprays him with the fire extinguisher]

[Cut to Tommy's room, which was remodeled for the new baby. One side is blue, for Tommy's side, which has a Dummi-bear bed, a "Smile!" poster and a trunk with smiles painted all over, The new baby's side is pink, with a crib festooned with balloons and an "It's a girl!" banner on the wall. The Rugrats enter the room to their amazement]
Rugrats: Oh!
Chuckie Finster: Tommy, somebody's been coloring your room.
Tommy Pickles: Yep, it's for my new sister.
Phil DeVille: How are we gonna find her, Tommy?
Chuckie Finster: Yeah, we don't even know what she looks like.
Lil DeVille: Well, she's a girl like me, so we know she'll be prettyful.
Angelica Pickles: [enters, carrying a big bunch of cookies using the lower part of her dress] Oh, brother! You dumb babies got a lot to learn about the facts of lice. [shoves Rugrats en route to table] Now, get out of my way. I gotta get back to the dessert table before the grownups get all the good stuff.
[Angelica dumps cookies on a table]
Tommy Pickles: Angelica, can you help us find my baby sister?
Angelica Pickles: I wouldn't be in such a big hurry if I was you, Tommy. 'Cause when the new baby gets here, she's gonna gets all the toys and the love and the attention. And your mommy and daddy'll forget all about you. It'll be like, "Look, Deed... there's that little bald kid in the house again."
Tommy Pickles: My mommy and daddy won't forget me.
Angelica Pickles: That's what Spike said before you were born. Back when his name was Paul.
Tommy Pickles: Paul?
Angelica Pickles: Yeah, but, then you came along and they put him out in the rain and he turned into a dog.
Tommy Pickles: That's not gonna happen to me, Angelica. My mommy and daddy will love me no matter what!

Susie Carmichael: A baby is very special.
Angelica Pickles: A baby is... is... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTT!!!!!!

Minka: [after seeing the "Aquatic Emersion Room"] She having a baby! Not a gefilte fish!

Lou: There you are!
Boris: Oy, gevalt! You kinder gave my ticker such a scare!

[Inside Didi's room. Apparently, the room she has chosen is the usual, ordinary birthing room. Didi's rhythmic breathing continues, though it's now at a faster pace. The staff work on Didi while Dr. Lucy gives orders]
Lucy Carmichael: All right, Didi, you can do it. Push now! [to the staff] Have we got a good reading on the EFM?
[Didi screams. We cut to what seems to be a graphic representation of a baby being born, from a baby's point of view inside Didi's body. In order, we see a blast of blue light, a group of planets, a school of fish mingling in aquatic plant life, frogs, dinosaurs, dolphins and monkeys, stonehenge, the sphinx, and pyramids, atoms and finally, bright light, all of them rendered in CGI. These items zoom by while the baby is born. A grand version of the "Rugrats" theme song plays under, and here we cut back to still inside Didi's body, still looking from the baby's point of view, which starts out as out of focus]
Lucy Carmichael: Here it comes. Gorgeous!
Stu Pickles: Deed, she's so beautiful. She's... she's a boy!
[The baby's eyes are now in focus, as he is handed to Didi. He starts crying very softly, and kind of adorably]
Didi Pickles: Hello, my wonderful, sweet baby boy.
[Switch back to audience's point of view, where we now see the new baby in Didi's arms softly crying and hiccuping. He's wrapped in a blue blanket. Stu wipes the tears from his eyes as Didi lets him grab her finger]
Stu Pickles: Well, I guess we won't be naming him after my mother.
Didi Pickles: He doesn't look much like a Trixie. What about my cousin Dylan?
Stu Pickles: Dylan Prescott Pickles. Hmm.
[The nurse is writing down the name, as the baby is sucking on Didi's finger]
Nurse: Dil Pickles.
[Stu and Didi hear what the nurse said, and realize what a great name it is]
Stu Pickles: Yeah... I like it.
[Stu and Didi look at their new son Dil, who looks up at his father and smiles at him. Grandpa takes Tommy into Didi's room. After being placed next to Dr. Lucy, Tommy gives her his coin]
Lou Pickles: Here you go, sprout.
Didi Pickles: Tommy, I want you to meet someone very special. This is your brother, Dylan. Dil, this is Tommy.
[Dil, sucking on a pacifier, looks at Tommy]
Tommy Pickles: [gasps in wonder] Baby... [he reaches a hand out]
Didi Pickles: See? They already love each other.
[Dil hiccups before he pulls Tommy's nose. Tommy shakes his head until Dil lets go of him. Tommy starts wailing. This in turn causes Dil to start crying and wailing]
Betty DeVille: Well, that's a start.

[Cut to exterior of the Pickles house. Caption "Four Weeks Later", a gong sounds. Cut to the kitchen, where Stu and Didi are in their morning clothes, and the kitchen is a big mess. Didi is literally sleeping in the kitchen sink, among the suds. Dil is crying continuously nonstop]
Stu Pickles: Didi, what are we gonna do? He hasn't stopped crying since we brought him home!
[Pan to playpen]
Phil DeVille: Somehow it's not as much fun around here anymore.
Chuckie Finster: Yeah! What's your brother so sad about?
Tommy Pickles: I don't know! But whatever it is, it must be really bad.
Lil DeVille: Maybe he's broked!
Tommy Pickles: What?!
Both: Broked!
[A monkey's head on a cymbal doll that Lil was holding pops off]
Tommy Pickles: Broked? [Stu, Didi and a still-crying Dil walk by] He's not broked! He's, uhh... just a little loud!
Angelica Pickles: Ooh! That baby's getting on my nerves!
[Angelica furiously goes into another room and angrily slams the door. Grandpa is in his char, sleeping as a fishing show is seen. The goat is next to him, also sleeping. Angelica changes the channel and turns up the volume. The first thing she sees is a commercial. Caption: "Coming Soon". The commercial featured monkeys and two ringmasters in a circus ring]
Announcer: Direct from Moscow, the Banana Brothers Monkey Circus! Featuring the most amazing monkeys since Brezhnev! This is real monkey business, so Trotsky on down. The Banana Brothers Monkey Circus! [circus logo slides into view]
[The goat bumps into the armchair's back]
Lou Pickles: It's enough of a circus around here already!

[Cut to black, then fade to the exterior of the Pickles' house at night. Dil cries. Caption: "Four O'Clock In the Morning"]
Stu Pickles: [Exhausted] Oh, for the love of Pete. What do you want from us? What? What?
[Stu lays on the floor with Dil. An American flag is waving on the TV. Didi looks in the Lipschitz book]
Didi Pickles: Oh, there must be something in here we missed. Somewhere, somehow, something!
Stu Pickles: There must be. Let me see here!
[Stu grabs the book from Didi and looks inside]
Stu Pickles: Cats, colic, Creole baby food. Uh, oh yeah, here it is. Crying...
[We skim the text of the book as Stu reads it. After the second "infant", we cut to Stu's blood-shot eyes, then to an exhausted Stu and Didi on the couch]
Stu Pickles: Although a baby's crying signifies a disruption in the infant-parent matrix, the good-enough parent pacifies the infant during this period of primary narcissism, foregoing their own needs, sublim-, sublimating, sublimating all their own needs too.
[Stu and Didi fall asleep. Dil stops crying, only to see a giant Dr. Lipschitz rotating up from behind the couch. Two babies, with books for wings, fly off of the doctor, as he is lit up. He starts to sing]
Dr. Lipschitz: Raising a baby is a serious venture.
[Stu & Didi "wake up"; one of the winged babies take away the Lipschitz book, while the other baby picks up Dil and takes him away]
Dr. Lipschitz: Not to be embarked upon by the faint of heart.
[Dr. Lipschitz plops dunce caps on Stu and Didi]
Dr. Lipschitz: Parents must make choices that are perfect and wise, / For you're doing something wrong when the baby cries.
[A book on top of a pile of books opens, and Dr. Lipschitz picks up the couple and drops them into some sort of netherworld. In that world, Stu & Didi races up a "staircase" of books]
Dr. Lipschitz: You must consider, the psychology of an infant,
[Stu and Didi then appear as small babies -- Stu in diapers, and Didi all wrapped up, sucking on a pacifier]
Dr. Lipschitz: Nature vs. Nurture, / Feed the ego; starve the mind.
[Twin Lipschitzes appear on either side of the crib. They embrace each other, then turn into a Rorschach print, which Dr. Lipschitz holds, while sitting in a chair]
Dr. Lipschitz: You must anticipate each crisis sure to arise, / For you're doing something wrong when the baby cries.
[As Dr. Lipschitz sings, a saw saws a hole underneath Stu & Didi, then, they fall through. They are picked up by a giant stork by its claws, holding Lipschitz inside its beak, while flying with a flock of storks. Cut to a puppet theater, with puppeteer Lipschitz holding Stu and Didi puppets. Tommy and Dil snatch the puppets from Dr. Lipschitz, and fight over them]
Dr. Lipschitz: Don't forget the older when attending to the younger, / Sibling rivalry can damage all of you.
[The Pickles' house plops on top of them. As its walls bulge, Stu & Didi rush out with Dil, dodging falling giant baby items -- rattle, baby bottle, safety pin]
Dr. Lipschitz: Be a mother, don't smother, / Why do you want a neurosis?
[Dil grows unbelievably large, crushing Stu & Didi]
Dr. Lipschitz: Failure to oralise can lead to toilet training disturbances.
[Dil's diaper bulges, then explodes. Cut to Stu, changing Dil's diaper. Dr. Lipschitz pops out of a diaper pail, yelling]
Dr. Lipschitz: Wrong!
[Cut to Didi, rocking Tommy & Dil to sleep. They start to cry when Dr. Lipschitz rolls up a window and shouts]
Dr. Lipschitz: Wrong!
[Cut to Stu, strolling Dil with Tommy on his back. Dr. Lipschitz looks with a magnifying glass, as Drew, Betty & Charlotte look on]
Dr. Lipschitz: Careful, now!
[Cut to Dil crying, in an auto carrier. Stu & Didi rush to his aid, when Dr. Lipschitz, with Chaz, Lou & Howard looking on, opens the roof and says]
Dr. Lipschitz: No, no, no! Bad parents! Bad parents!
[Cut to Stu, Didi & Dil rushing through the city. The winged babies picked them up and flew them to a temple of justice. Dr. Lipschitz appears as a "lawyer"]
Dr. Lipschitz: Raising a baby is a complicated venture. / Not to be embarked on by a weaker constitution.
[Dr. Lipschitz then appears as a giant baby, standing on the table, between Dil & Tommy]
Dr. Lipschitz: It's really something different, from what we fantacise, / You are doing something wrong when the baby cries.
[Dr. Lipschitz leaps to the couple. Then, he goes to a jury of Dils, which gives "thumbs down". The couple magically appears in prison garb, and a ball and chain]
Dr. Lipschitz: It's really very different, from what we fantacise, / You are doing something wrong when the baby... starts to... cry!
[Tommy plops a giant book on top of the couple. The dream ends, waking up the couple. They look at each other as Dil cries]

[Cut to an old steam train, which pulls into a station, as the engine blows its whistle and arrives on time. 2 men, Serge and Igor, leave the engine's cab]
Igor: Serge, you stay here and watch monkeys, I get us coffee.
Serge: No, Igor, you stay and watch monkeys and I get us coffee.
Igor: Nyet! Monkeys watch you, I GET COFFEE!
[Cut to interior of diner, where both men are enjoying their coffee. Igor drinks from a cup, where Serge drinks from a dish. Both are also eating donuts. Their train is in view through a window as monkeys climb out and on top of the train to reach the engine]
Serge: I think coffee's better in St. Petersburg.
Igor: Nyet, is better in Kiev.
Serge: No, it's better in St. Petersburg.
Igor: Nothing is better in St. Petersburg!
[While the men argue over coffee, the monkeys commandeer the train, and are able to move it by hoping into the engine's cab. Serge sees this and spits out his drink]
Serge: Look! The train!
[The men rush out, bumping over tables and other customers]
Serge: Let me out! Stop!
[By the time Serge and Igor get out of the diner, the train's already racing off into the distance; Igor rants angrily in Russian and furiously throws his hat to the ground and angrily stomps on it. Cut to the train still rolling off. Inside the engine's cab, it is revealed the monkeys have commandeered it. The lead monkey, who is driving the engine, puts on an engineer's cap and smiles. Another monkey pushes a lever that increases the train's speed. After it passes a flashing "Danger, Slow Curve" signal, the train derails and crashes into a vast forest. Before we fade out, one of the monkeys climb out from the engine's cab, bewildered]

[Angelica and Drew come over]
Angelica Pickles: Daddy, why can't I watch Shirley-lock Holmes at our house? I'll never be able to hear it with that new baby squawking the whole time!
Drew Pickles: Now, sweetheart, Daddy's gotta put in a little overtime today, so that Mommy won't be so ashamed of his quarterly earnings.
[Stu answers the door]
Angelica Pickles: Hi, Uncle Stu. Sorry to hear your pony is so slow.
Stu Pickles: But we don't have a pony Angelica.
Angelica Pickles: [to Drew] Then how come you told Mommy, Aunt Didi got saddled with a loser?
Stu Pickles: "Loser"?
Drew Pickles: [laughs nervously] He--he... I...
[Dil's crying is heard from upstairs]
Stu Pickles: Excuse me, bro. My tax deductions are CRYING!
[Stu angrily slams the door. Drew furiously opens it again and angrily puts Angelica's things inside]
[Drew slams the door. Tommy and Dil are still arguing over the teddy. The other Rugrats watch, while Chuckie is exhibiting signs of boredom]

Stu Pickles: You've got a little brother, and that's a big change. Big brothers got to have faith.

Phil: Which way to the hopsicle?
Tommy: We're not going to the hopsicle!
Chuckie: Well, we're going somewheres!

[Angelica appears wearing Sherlock Holmes clothes]
Angelica: They've taken Cynthia, Spike. Come on, you're gonna be my Butthound.

Stu: Deed, just go to the spa and relax. Pop and I are doing fine taking care of the, uh... Pop, where's the crate?
Grandpa: Oh, the delivery folks must’ve come.
Stu: Wow. They loaded up and everything, eh?
Didi: [On phone] Stu, let me talk to Tommy.
Stu: Sure, I let you talk to Tommy. Uh… Pop, uh… uhh… where are the kids?
Grandpa: That’s funny. They were here a minute ago playing in the…
Stu and Grandpa: [looking outside] THE CRATE!
Stu: Uh, Honey… I’m gonna have to call you back.

[Fade into the "United Express" plane, the crew has opened up every package and crate on board, finding nothing unusual, except for the goat]
Air Crewman: I've turned this plane upside down, and I assure you there are no children.
Delivery Man: No.
Air Crewman: We found a kid, but he's not the one you're looking for.
[Cut to Stu and Grandpa at the controllers' tower, listening as the goat bleats on the other side of the radio. Stu and Grandpa return home, resuming their search there]
Stu Pickles: [looking in the closet] Tommy!
Lou Pickles: [looking under the bed] Sprout?
Stu Pickles: [looking down the basement] Dil!
Lou Pickles: [searching in a cookie jar] Angelica?
Stu Pickles: [searching under the kitchen sink] Where can they be? We gotta find them!
Didi Pickles: [entering] Find what?

[Dil begins to grunt and grimace; his face has turned dark pink]
Lil: Uh-oh, Tommy, I think your brother's broked again.
Tommy: Oh no! Dil, are you ok?
Phil: I think he's gonna explode.
Dil: Mama, me Backy-Poop.
Tommy: What?
Dil: [shouts] MAMA, ME BACKY-POOP! [he soils himself]
Everyone: EW!
Tommy: Well, I guess we'll have to change his diapie!
Phil: What do you mean, "we?"

Angelica: You know, not all dogs go to heaven.

[Cut to Tommy, holding the lead connecting the Reptar Wagon]
Tommy Pickles: Forward, march!
[Tommy pulls the wagon up the hill, while Chuckie, Phil & Lil push from behind. Dil is inside the wagon, drinking his juice box. They sing in an army chant]
Tommy Pickles: We are going up the hill!
Lil DeVille: We go back there without Dil!
Tommy Pickles: But you guys, he's not so bad.
Chuckie Finster: A frighty thing, he needs a bath.
Tommy Pickles: Nah-uh!
Rugrats: Uh-huh!
Tommy Pickles: Nah-uh!
Rugrats: Uh-huh!
Tommy Pickles: Sometimes, he is lots of fun.
Phil DeVille: He's a big pain in our buns!
Tommy Pickles: Chuckie, do you think so, too?
Chuckie Finster: I just got a big boo boo!
Tommy Pickles: Nah-uh!
Rugrats: Uh-huh!
Tommy Pickles: Nah-uh!
Rugrats: Uh-huh!
Tommy Pickles: He's just a baby, don't you see?
Lil DeVille: We love to leave him in a tree!
Tommy Pickles: He'll get better when he's grown.
Phil DeVille: We'd like to feed him to a toad!
Tommy Pickles: Don't you think he's kind of sweet?
Lil DeVille: All he does is poop and eat!
Tommy Pickles: Chuckie, don't you like him too?
[Chuckie takes off his right shoe and pulls out a rock]
Chuckie Finster: I got a rock inside my shoe!
[The Rugrats continue towing the wagon while Chuckie puts his shoe on]
Tommy Pickles: Nah-uh!
Phil DeVille & Lil DeVille: Uh-huh!
Tommy Pickles: Nah-uh!
Phil DeVille & Lil DeVille: Uh-huh!
[The Rugrats reach the top of the hill, they struggle to put the wagon there]
Tommy Pickles: Nah-uh! Nah-uh!
Phil DeVille & Lil DeVille: Uh-huh! Uh-huh!
Tommy Pickles: Nah-uh! Nah-uh!
Phil DeVille & Lil DeVille: Uh-huh! Uh-huh!
[Dil squeezes his juice box; the sides burst open and squirts Phil & Lil. Song ends]
Phil DeVille: Hey! Stop squirting.
[Phil & Lil fall to the ground. Tommy lets go of the lead. The wagon rolls down the hill, narrowly missing Chuckie]
Phil DeVille: Oops.
[Lil waves]
Lil DeVille: Goodbye, baby.
[The wagon crashes in some bushes. Dil looks around, then sucks his thumb]

[Cut to the Pickles' house, which is jam-packed with police cars and news trucks. Stu, Didi and the other parents rush out the door. The reporters and cameramen gang up at Stu and Didi, grilling them with questions]
Reporter: There he is!
Reporter #1: Mr. Pickles, is it true you shipped your own children to Tokyo in a wooden box?
Reporter #2: Is it true a dingo ate your baby?
Reporter #3: Mr. Pickles, how many pecks of pickled peppers did you pick?
[A helicopter lands in the yard and the crowd scatters. News reporter Rex Pester and his camera man rush up over towards Stu and Didi, shoving the other reporters en route. We see Rex through his camera]
Rex Pester: Childhood, a time of innocence, a time of joy. A time of unspeakable, unrelenting tragedy. Mrs. Pickles, tell us how it feels to know you may never see your children again.
Betty DeVille: [Disgusted] Criminy! Can't you pit bulls show some compassion?
Rex Pester: I'm so sorry. Forgive me. [Back to Didi] Please tell us how it feels to know you may never see your children again.
[Betty glares. She charges at at Rex. Grandpa and Stu hold her back]
Betty DeVille: All right! That's it! Let me at him! All right! Come one! Come on!
[Cut to the interior of Charlotte and Drew's car. Charlotte is on the phone with Jonathan. The car stops at Stu and Didi's house where they see the commotion]
Charlotte Pickles: Hold on, Jonathan. There's an alarming crowd at my in-law's indicating either a yard sale or a family tragedy. Let me get back to you.
[They get out of the car, when Rex hounds them]
Rex Pester: Mr. Pickles, how does it feel knowing your brother lost your only daughter?
Drew Pickles: [Furiously] He what?!
Rex Pester: Share your pain.
[Drew's face boils red. He angrily lunges at Stu and violently fights him]
[While the other adults try to break up the fight, Rex goes back to camera. He displays the pictures of the Rugrats, one by one, while incorrectly saying their names]
Rex Pester: And there you have it. 2 sour Pickles and: young Tammy, baby Dale, the twins Bill and Jill, little Chunky, and poor Amelia, all vanished without a trace. [caption "Rex Pester, Big Action News"] I'm Rex Pester, and I'll be back with more "Big Action News"!

[Cut back to the Rugrats. Chuckie is crying]
Phil DeVille: This is all Dil's fault! Right, Chuckie?
Chuckie Finster: Uh...
Tommy Pickles: Uh, uh! This never would've happened if you hadn't putted him in the wagon in the first place, right, Chuckie?
Chuckie Finster: Uh... Uh--uh...
Lil DeVille: It's not our fault you got a bad, naughty, stinky baby for a brother!
Tommy Pickles: He's not naughty. He's just a... he's just a... a baby! How could you be mad just because you're... [Dil rips a tab on Tommy's diaper and it drops. He looks down, shocked and embarrassed, but he plays it off to defend his brother. The others stare at Tommy's exposure, with Lil in particular giving a peculiar creepy smile before looking away] standing there all nakie? I mean, I'm sure he's trying to help. And side's, it's hot, phew, exploring in the woods all day. Ah! A little breeze feels good. Just what I needed. Oh, thank you, Dil.
[Tommy picks up his diaper and Dil hiccups]
Phil DeVille: Those hiccups are really starting to bug me.
Lil DeVille: Face it, Tommy. Having a baby brother just isn't what you expected.
[The Rugrats then see a small house at the bottom of a hill]
Chuckie Finster: Hey, you guys, look. Somebody's house. Tommy was right.
Tommy Pickles: Wow. My sponsatility does work.
Phil DeVille: Yeah, but who'd have a house way out there in the forest?
Tommy Pickles: Maybe a lizard lives there.
Chuckie Finster: A lizard?
Tommy Pickles: You know, a big guy with a pointy hat that grants wishes. All's we got to do is knock on the door and say we wanna go home. See? Then everything will be back to Norman.
Phil DeVille: Thank, Bob!
Lil DeVille: Thank you, Bob.
Tommy Pickles: Come on, guys! We're off to see the lizard!
[Tommy trips on something. Chuckie goes to help up his friend]
Chuckie Finster: Oh, Tommy, are you okay?
Tommy Pickles: I'm fine. I just tripped in a little hole, that's all.
[They see a large animal footprint on the ground. Chuckie is the first to study it]
Chuckie Finster: Gosh, it looks kinda like Spike's feet; only if he was a giant.
Phil DeVille: I saw feetprints like that in our storybook. A wolf made them, and then he ate that little red riding girl.
Chuckie Finster: The wolf ate a girl?
Phil DeVille: They got her out.
Tommy Pickles: I don't think it's a wolf, Chuckie. If it was, we'd hear him say...
[The wolf howls in the distance as Tommy prepares to mimic such a sound. He looks around nervously]
Phil DeVille: That was pretty good.
Tommy Pickles: I didn't do anything.
[The wolf howls again. The Rugrats scream. They all get into the Reptar Wagon and take off]
Tommy Pickles: Do you see the wolf?
Chuckie Finster: I don't know what he looks like.
Phil DeVille: Teeth! Teeth and fur! And teeth!
[Dil pulls a lever to make the Reptar Wagon move]
Tommy Pickles: No, Dil! Bad Dil! No!
[We cut to a Disney-esque forest scene, similar to "Bambi", where we see a couple of deer eating off the ground, a pair of chipmunks and rabbits kissing each other, a couple of birds on a branch singing and a raccoon scampering about a squirrel while a skunk looks on. This serene scene is disturbed and the animals run in panic when the Rugrats and the Reptar Wagon crashes on through, this movement obviously being an insult to Disney from Nickelodeon]
Reptar Wagon: I am Reptar! [roars]
[We then cut to a forest road, where forest rangers Frank and Margaret are driving around in a Jeep. The radio is playing]
Ranger Frank: Margaret? That's your name, isn't it? I'm sure you've run afoul of many a scary pedestrian. But out here, we have what you might call... hmm, how should I put it? Actual danger.
Ranger Margaret: [gasps] Danger?
Ranger Frank: Grizzlies that'll rip the top off your car. Bobcats, wolves, wolverines, which are something entirely different.

Chuckie: Hey, you guys, help me! The monkeys is trying to take Tommy's brother!
Phil: So?

Phil: I didn't know she could fly.
Lil: I think it's cause she's a witch.
