(The opening scene song starts, and when the movie starts, it shows the title card: January 20, 1981. Cut to another scene. We start out on the familiar portal of Lego World. The camera submerges into the underworld until it stops in front of a church. The camera pans down in front of it.)
Police Woman: Back off! Back off! (waves arms to shoo away the reporters and citizens)
(The screen pans out to show the chile be surrounded by cops.)
Priest: Please, settle down. (eeferring to the chile church) We've got a situation in there. I'd rather not discuss until my manager gets here.
Unnamed Woman: (off-screen) Look, there he is.
(A black car with orange flames drives up. Thomas's leg, wearing a black boot with an orange snake on it, pops out of the vehicle. When it's stopped, Thomas climbs out of the limousine. He walks toward the Chile church.
Thomas: Talk to me, priest.
Priest: Oh. It started out as a criminal order: a prisoner with tattoos took a little girl. Her name's Amy, and-
(He cries, but Thomas slaps him.)
Thomas: Get a hold of yourself, Priest. I'm going in. (Thomas walks in and sees an extremely nervous child, looking at the prisoner watching at her.) Take it easy, friend. I'm the manager of this establishment. (He puts a briefcase down on the floor.) Everything's gonna be just fine.
Amy: I'm really scared here, Thomas.
Thomas: (opens the briefcase.) You got a name?
Amy: (nervously) Amy.
Thomas: (puts on gloves.) You got a family, Amy? (Amy chokes over her words, unable to speak. Thomas snaps.) Come on, Amy, stay with me. Let's hear about that family.
Amy: I got Uncle Jason, Aunt Sally, Cousin Tony and Janet, Mom and Dad Joan and Nick, my twin brother Andy and my older sister Sandy.
Thomas: (puts on a headset from the briefcase) That's what it's all about. I want you to do me a favor and kill bad guys by using voodoo dolls, Amy.
Thomas: (Thomas picks up a pine from out from his briefcase with some tweezers.) Say "smile". (Thomas dramatically and slowly attempts to put the pine on the voodoo dolls and kill the prisoners. He then kicks the door open, Amy in his arms. The crowd gasps. Thomas saved Amy, who is clean and sparkly.) The day is saved.
All (except Thomas): (cheering and lifting Thomas up) Three cheers for the cops! Hip hip! (Honk!) Hip hip! (Honk!) Hip hip! (HONK!)
(The honking noise continues from the dream. The screen now shows Thomas in his bedroom. He turns off his honking foghorn alarm clock.)
Thomas: Who's it gonna be, Sparkles little kitty? Well, let's ask my wall of 374 consecutive Scarlett Minion Employee of the Month awards.
(The camera pulls up, revealing many "Scarlett Minion Employee of the Month" portraits)
Scarlett Minion E.O.T.M Awards: Thomas S. Smith!
Thomas: I'm ready! Promotion!
(He walks into his walk-in shower, puts soap in the washing machine, inserts a hose in the washing machine, and puffs it up until the soap comes out. Thomas then pulls out paper-like fabric, folds into his pants, backs the springs off to reveal his rear, and brushes his teeth with toothpaste, wiping off the foam.)
Thomas: Cleanliness is next to manager-liness. (goes outside and runs around and into Scarlett's house) I'm ready! Promotion! I'm ready! Promotion!
(The scene zooms to Scarlett's house then cuts to Scarlett in her bathroom)
Scarlett: La da dee, la da doo, la da dum. La da dee, la da doo, la da dum.
Scarlett and Thomas: (in unision) La da dee, la da doo, la da dum. La da d...
Thomas: ...ee, la da doo, la da dum, bum bum bum, da da da...
Scarlett: (interrupts him, and covers herself) Thomas! What are you doing in here?
Thomas: I have to tell you something, Scarlett.
Scarlett: Whatever it is, can't it wait until we get to work?
Thomas: There's no shower at work.
Scarlett: What do you want?
Thomas: I just wanted to say I'll be thanking you in my managerial acceptance speech today.
Scarlett: Get out!! (throws him out the window)
Thomas: Okay! See you at the ceremony!
(He runs into his house then goes to upstairs and runs into Chucky, who comes out of his room.)
Chucky: That sounds like the manager of the new Police Night Club. (realize that he doesn't have his police uniform on) Oops. Hold on. (He closes the door then opens it again.) Congratulations, brother.
Thomas: Oh, thanks, Charles. And tonight, after my big promotion, we're gonna party until we're murder.
Chucky: YAY, I LOVE BEING MURDER!
Thomas: We're going to the place where all the action is.
Chucky: You don't mean...?
Thomas: Oh, I mean.
Thomas and Chucky: Serial Killer's Root Beer Party Boat!
(The door closes up on them and opens up a few seconds later. They now have on serial killer jackets, and a record begins playing on a record player beside Chucky.)
Thomas and Chucky: Oh, I'm a Serial Killer, yeah. You're a Serial Killer, yeah. We're all Serial Killers, yeah. Serial, serial, killer, killer, yeah!
Thomas: (notices his watch) I'd better get going. I'm ready. Promotion. I'm ready. Promotion.
Chucky: Good luck, Thomas. Hey, look for me at the ceremony. I got a little surprise for you. I'm a Serial Killer, yeah. (walks away)
(The scene cuts to a large crowd gathered in front of the ruined Night Club. Janette is on TV, reporting.)
Janette: Hello, Chile city! Janette here, coming to you live from in front of the ruined night club! For years, the only place to celebrate will be thid mouthwatering new night club! Until today, that is. That's right, folks. Longtime owner Mr. Mayor is opening a new party club called the Police Night Club. First of all, congratulations, Mr. Mayor.
(Mr. Mayor has a big grin on his face)
Mr. Mayor: Hello. I like night clubs.
Janette: What inspired you to build a second Police Night Club right next door to the new Police Night Club?
Mr. Mayor: Night clubs!
(The leader of the prisoners id watching the entire scenario out the window of the jailhouse.)
Prisoner Leader: Curses! It's not fair. Mayor is being interviewed by Janette, and I've never even had the chance to rule the world!
(The word "world" is heard echoing in the jailhouse. The leader groans and moans while sweating.)
Marito: Don't give up again, Boss. I want to rule the world as well.
Prisoner Leader: Oh, Marito, my first minion, if only I could have managed to steal the secret to Mayor's success, the gold keys to become a new mayor. Then people would line up to party at my white house. Lord knows I've tried. I've exhausted every evil plan in my filing cabinet...from A to Y.
Marito: A to Y?
Prisoner Leader: Yeah, A to Y. You know, the alphabet.
Marito: What about Z?
Prisoner Leader: Z?
Marito: Z. The letter after Y.
Prisoner Leader: (searches through the cabinet) W, X, Y, Z. Plan Z! Here it is, just like you said.
Marito: Yes, now I can beat people up now.
Prisoner Leader: (suggestively) Oh! Oh! Ohhh! It's evil. It's diabolical. (sniffs it) It's lemon-scented. This Plan Z can't possibly fail! (goes outside and puts on his firefighter jacket) So enjoy today, Mr. Mayor, because by tomorrow, I'll have the gold keys! Then everyone will love me at the White House, and I will rule the world! All hail P.L.! All hail P.L.-
(Thomas's robocar runs by and accidentally steps on him.)
Thomas: I'm ready! Promotion! I'm ready! Promotion...
Prisoner Leader: (while being stepped on by Thomas's robocar) Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow!
Thomas: Eww, I think I stepped in something. (Tries to scrape prisoner leader off)
Prisoner Leader: Not in something, on someone, you twit!
Thomas: Oh. Sorry, Firefighter. (pulls him off the robocar's shoe) Are you on your way to the grand opening ceremony?
Prisoner Leader: No, I am not on my way over to the grand opening ceremony. I'm busy planning to rule the world!
Thomas: Well, good luck with that. (runs off) I'm ready! Promotion! I'm ready! Promotion!
Prisoner Leader: I'm gonna create an aftershock and a tsunami.
(Later, Mr. Mayor is at a stand in front of the Police Night Club. The crowd is still gathered there, seated.)
Mr. Mayor: Welcome. Welcome, everyone, to the grand opening of the Police Night Club.
Jackson: We paid nine dollars for this?
Scarlett: I paid ten dollars!
Mr. Mayor: Now, before we begin with the ribbon-cutting, I'd like to announce the name of our new policeman.
Thomas: Yay! Yeah! Yeah! Now we're talking! Yeah! For Scarlett, my friends!
Mr. Mayor: Yes. Well, anyway...the new manager is a loyal, hard-working employee.
Thomas: (thinking) Yes.
Mr. Mayor: The obvious choice for the job.
Thomas: (thinking) He's right.
Mr. Mayor: A name you all know. It's quite popular among this city.
Thomas: (thinking) That's Scarlett.
Mr. Mayor: Please welcome our new manager...Thomas Dreamer!
(A banner falls with Thomas's face on it.)
Thomas: Yes! Yeah! (shaking Scarlett's hand) Oh, better luck next time, Scarlett. You're my boss now. Yeah! All right! (grabs the microphone) People of Chile City, as the manager of-
Mr. Mayor: Uh, Thomas.
Thomas: Hold the phone, folks. I'm getting an important news flash from Mr. Mayor. Go ahead, Mr. M. (Mr. Mayor whispers into his ear.) I'm making a complete what of Scarlett? (Mr. Mayor whispers again.) The most embarrassing thing you've ever seen? (Mr. Mayor whispers a third time.) And now it's worse because I'm repeating everything you say into the microphone?
Mr. Mayor: Oh, for crying out loud, Thomas! Scarlett didn't get the job!
Mr. Mayor: Scarlett...did not...get...the job.
Thomas: But...but why?
Mr. Mayor: Thomas, you're a great manager, but I gave the honeymoon ticket to Scarlett because going to the honeymoon with her boyfriend is a big responsibility. And, well, let's face it, she's...older than you.
Thomas: I'm not...older?
Mr. Mayor: Mr. Dreamer, I mean this in the nicest of ways, but there's a word for what you are, and that word is...now, let's see...
Cop #1: Criminal?
Mr. Mayor: No, wait, that's not right. Not criminal.
Cop #12: A goofball?
Mr. Mayor: Closer, but no, no, no.
Unnamed Man #10: A ding-a-ling.
Cop #3: Wing nut.
Cop #5: A Knucklehead McSpazatron!
Mr. Mayor: Okay, that's enough! Look, what I'm trying to say is, you're only 40 years old. And to be a manager, you have to die. Otherwise, they'd call it "adult-ager. " You understand?
Thomas: I guess so, Mr. Mayor.
Mr. Mayor: Thomas?
(Thomas drives away.)
Thomas (depressed): I can wait, yeah.
Mr. Mayor: Poor guy.
(Chucky appears in his underwear flying on a bannerwith a "Go Thomas" flag in his underpants.)
Chucky: Hooray for Thomas! Hooray for Thomas! Let's hear it for Thomas!
(Chucky accidentally hits the stage, which sets on fire. Everyone except Chucky runs away.)
Chucky: Hello? Where'd everybody go? Did I miss something? Did you see me?
(Later that evening, Marito and his gang travel through the sky on the airplane. He stops in front of a beach.)
Marito: Time to put Plan Z into effect. Starting at the ocean beach in one day.
(Marito pours the aftershock potion in the water and laughs evilly. He and his gang leave the ocean.)
Marito: I did it. I did it!
(They fly past Serial Killer's Root Beer Party Boat, which we get a view of inside. The bar is filled with serial killers eating party snacks. Suddenly, a Serial Killer Clock speaks.)
Serial Killer Clock: Hey, all you Killers, it's time to say hello to your favorite criminal guy, Serial Killer!
Other Serial Killers: Hello, Serial Killer!
Serial Killer: Hey, fellow Serial Killers! Time to sing! Oh, I'm a Serial Killer, yeah. You're a Serial Killer, yeah. We're all Serial Killers, yeah.
All Serial Killers: Serial, serial, killer, killer, yeah!
(We then see Thomas crying at the root beer bar.)
Thomas: All right. Get it together, adult man. I know. I'll just stop thinking about it. Hey, you know, I actually feel a lot better. I don't even remember why I was sad.
(Chucky walks up to him.)
Chucky: Hey, it's Scarlett's new Police Night Club manager! (Thomas starts crying again.) Wow, the pressure is already setting in.
Thomas: No, bro, you don't understand. Scarlett didn't get the promotion.
Chucky: What? Why?
Thomas: Mr. Mayor thinks I'm an adult.
Chucky: What? That's insane.
Thomas: I know.
Chucky: Well, saying you're an adult, it's like saying I'm an adult. (The waiter walks up to him, handing him a Serial Killer party snack.)
Waiter: Here's your Serial Killer party snack, sir.
Chucky: I'm supposed to get a locket with this. It's for my girlfriend. (The waiter throws the locket at him.) Thanks. (He puts it in his pocket.
Thomas: I'm gonna head to the Police Night Club, bro. The celebration's off.
Chucky: Are you sure?
Thomas: Yeah. I'm not in a Serial Killer mood. (starts walking away)
Chucky: Okay, see you.
Waiter: (hands Chucky a Triple Serial Killer Root Beer Berry Sunrise) And here's your Triple Serial Killer Root Beer Berry Sunrise, sir.
(Thomas starts walking back to Chucky.)
Thomas: Serial Killer Root Beer Berry Sunrise, huh? I guess I could use one of those.
Chucky: Now you're talking. Hey, waiter, we need another one over here.
Waiter: (handing Thomas one) There you go.
(Thomas and Chucky gleefully eat rapidly and get root beer on the waiter. They then burp loudly.)
Thomas: Boy, bro, that hit the spot. I'm feeling better already.
Thomas: Waiter, let's get another round over here. (The waiter gives them two more. They eat them and get more root beer on the him.) Oh, Mr. Waiter. Two more, please.
(The waiter gives them two more.)
(They eat the Sunrise and get even more root beer on the waiter.)
(They eat two more. By this time, the waiter is covered in root beer. We see Chucky finishing his Sunrise.)
Thomas: Oh, waiter! (sing-song) Waiter. (slurring) Wai-toor. (yelling angrily and pounding on the table, the bowls stacked sideways) Waiter!
Waiter: (puts a scoop of ice cream on some root beer) Why do I always get the nuts?
Thomas: (on stage,holding a microphone) All right, folks, this one goes out to my two bestest family members in the whole world: (We see Chucky and the Serial Killer up on stage, too.) Chucky and this big Killer guy. It's a little ditty called...
(All three faint. The next morning, Thomas wakes up to find the waiter trying to get him up.)
Waiter: (To Thomas) Hey. Hey, get up. Hey, come on, buddy. I wanna go home. Come on, pal.
Thomas: (after recovering) Oh, my head. (He looks drunk.)
Waiter: Listen to me. It's eight in the morning. Go scrape up your friend and get going.
Thomas: What...what happened?
Waiter: Marito created an earthquake.
(Cut to a flashback scene in the Police Night Club. Everyone is partying when suddenly the earthquake occurs. The people start panicing while Danny wakes up to Scarlett stuck. He holds out his hand to help her. Suddenly, an airplane falls onto the ground, and he dies. The flashback scene ends.)
Waiter: You must find a new home called Ninjago City.
Thomas: Wait...where's my brother? (He sees Chucky lying on the floor. He looks drunk too.) Chucky. Hey, what's up, brother? (then realizes something) Wait, you said eight. I have to go find Ninjago City! The firefighters are gonna be... (disgustedly) ...a mystery. Oh god, I need to check on my grandfather!
(Cut to a scene in the ruined airplane. Danny is dead, and Thomas takes out a locket while he cries.)
Thomas: Grandpa, no! (dries his tears) It's all my fault!
Waiter: It's not your fault. It's nobody's fault. We must stop those bad guys. Hey, let's help that firefighter. (The pull out the firefighter from a pile of rubble.) Mr. Mayor got burned alive, Sally got killed by some bad guys, and Marito and Jackson are dead. We must go.
(Cut to a church scene. Thomas looks around, and he hears Scarlett yelling in pain.)
Scarlett: My leg! My leg!!
(The firefighter appears and gives her some treatment, but she still gets pain.)
Prisoner Leader: On the count of three! One...two...three! (He pulls out Scarlett's legs, and she screams in pain.) I'm the king now! (He kills Scarlett and laughs evilly.)
Thomas: Scarlett! No!! What have you done to Scarlett, prisoner?!?!
(He fights the prisoner leader and kills him while he goes to the graveyard of children. A stone falls on him, and Thomas wakes up to see Chucky turned into a doll and sees the other people die. Thomas is then on a beach. He's happy, but sad at the same time. He lays on the sand, then stands to see a wave and runs along it with Chucky.)
