“Fighting Ourselves” – Episode 86

“Sooperflea” Fleaglossitty Floppinsplodge finally arrives at pal Zig Gneeecey’s high-tech cabin nestled in the wooded mountains of Booolabeeezia, where he hopes to take refuge. He encounters and confronts his double—and it ain’t pretty. 

Complicating matters, Gneeecey and his double fight their way up from the basement, each claiming that the cash-stuffed teddy bear Yammicles belongs to him. But the two canine-humanoids are in for a big surprise.

Music/Intro: Hi there, I’m author and radio host Vicki Solá, welcoming you to Perswayssick Radio: Unearthly Comedy. I invite you to escape with me into the bizarre dimension of Perswayssick County, where wackiness rules! The laughs begin when I morph into my alter ego, radio DJ Nicki Rodriguez and clash with the zany, alien canine-humanoid Gneeecey! And now, I turn it over to my other self, Nicki, and the gang….

NARRATOR VICKI SOLÁ: In our last episode, “Flea Flies Again…and Again,” our black-furred, red-caped canine-humanoid superhero “Sooperflea” Fleaglossitty Floppinsplodge, known to his friends as “Flea,” flies all the way from Perswayssick City’s GAS Broadcast Network headquarters to his fellow canine-humanoid pal Zig Gneeecey’s secret high-tech cabin nestled away in the wooded mountains of Booolabeeezia. 

Flea, Gneeecey, and stranded earthling Nicki Rodriguez are being hounded—actually, terrorized—by their doubles. Fighting over Gneeecey’s suddenly appearing, stolen cash-stuffed teddy bear Yammicles, he and his double—and the bear—vanish into thin air—right before Flea’s eyes. Previously, Nicki had confronted her double—then both of them disappeared.

Realizing that he would not be safe from his own double, who’d crashed through Gneeecey’s office window and flown away, Flea zooms toward Booolabeeezia, hoping to figure things out and get some much-needed rest. Skull aching after flying headfirst into a tree, into Gneeecey’s luxury cabin our superhero walks….

“FLEA” FLEAGLOSSITTY FLOPPINSPLODGE, AKA “SOOPERFLEA”:  Holy Saint Bogelthorpe—there’s the other me—sittin’ in the livin’ room, watchin’ TV! 

TV ANNOUNCER: And stay tuned for GAS-TV Channel Three-an’-a-half news! Top story: Stummix Bank may be going belly-up! But, first, a word from our sponsors.

F: An’ look, the other me—he’s got an ice pack sittin’ on top of his noggin! Does the back of my head really look that funny? Are my ears really that long? Uh-oh, jus’ my luck—the other me—he’s gettin’ up, an’ he’s headed toward the kitchen here! 

SFX: [Logo Eerie Sharp]

F: I’m gonna get to the bottom of this once an’ for all! Hey, you! Looky here!

F2: Who you talkin’ to?

F: You—or, uh, make that me! Looks like I got here before myself again!

F2: You are a fumblin’, inept, clumsy jackass failure of a superhero, ain’cha?

F: How dare you?

F2: You’re still jus’ as bumblin’ an’ uncoordinated as ya were back in Missus Forkworthy’s class. Remember the time ya were doin’ a trick, y’know, tryin’ to impress Prindl, the priddiest girl in first grade, an’ ya fell outta your chair onto your head an’ ya passed gas, an’ the whole class was laughin’! Especially Prindl!

F: How dare ya bring that up?

F2: An’ Zig’s right about ya. Your superhero powers—y’know, your ESP an’ your flyin’ powers—they sure ain’t what they used to be, an’ you know it!

F: Why you—

SFX: [FightFist] [Glass Shatter] [Dish Ceramic] [Splash Water] [Bang] [Blow on Table] [Metal Crash]

F & F2: Ow! Ow! Ow! You! Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow!

F: What are we doin’, fightin’? Hatin’ on ourselves?

F2: I was jus’ tryin’ to help ya see that it’s your confidence that’s lackin’. Causin’ all your problems an’ inadequacies. Hadda bring up an extreme example to get’cha to see that.

F: Well, ya sure made me feel worse than bad. Ya certainly know which buttons to press.

F2: Who better than me?

F: Let’s take a look in Zig’s freezer here an’ see if we can find a couple more ice packs.

F2: Yeah. We’re both gonna need ’em. An’, look—my nose is bleedin’. 

F: So’s mine.

F2: Your left hook there was pretty powerful. Pretty impressive.

F: So was yours. 

F2: Maybe there’s hope for ya yet. An’ it was really dumb of ya to tell Nicki that if them other three of us—the other Zig, her, an’ me—were actually antimatter, everything would’ve been destroyed. Mutual annihilation would’ve occurred as soon as we made contact wit’ your world. For Bogelthorpe’s sake, we were taught that in our second semester at the superhero academy—Matter 101. You owe that earth girl Nicki an apology. You ain’t always too bright, are ya?

F: Don’t start wit’ me again. Whatever you say ’bout me goes for you, too.

F2: You ain’t got no argument from me there.

F: Now, let’s try an’ make peace wit’ ourselves, if only jus’ temporarily. 

F2: It is worth a try. Might be the answer to most of your problems.

F: Ya never know…. An’, wow—look at all this—we really busted up Zig’s kitchen here!

F2: It’s usually a terrible mess. He won’t even notice.

F: You ain’t got no argument from me there.

DIROCTOR BIZZIG “ZIG” GNEEECEY:  Yaaaaaah! Gimme that!

G2: Noooo! He ain’t yours!

F: Holy Saint Bogelthorpe!

F & F2 [in unison]: What was that? 

SFX: [Body Fall] [Metal Crash] [Splash Water]


G: Yaaaaaah! Gimme that!

G2: Noooo! He ain’t yours!

F: It’s comin’ from the basement!

G: No, it ain’t! Me an’ my other stinkin’ self are bringin’ this fight upstairs! He got my teddy bear, Yammicles! An’ I ain’t losin’ two zillion bucks in cash! I’d rather have malaria!

G2: Yammicles ain’t yours—he’s mine! Now, give him here!

G: No! An’ what are both of you lousy Fleaglossittys lookin’ at?

F & F2 [in unison]: Uh…nuthin’, Zig….

G: An’ I forgot what a stinkin’ mess I left this lousy kitchen in!

SFX: [Metal Crash] [Dish Ceramic] 

G & G2 [in unison]: Gimme that bear!

G & G2 [in unison]: Noooooooo!

SFX: [Cartoon Slip] {Slip and Fall] [Duck Horn] [Fabric Tear] [Clinking Coins]

G2: Ow! Jus’ fell on my bimbus!

G: Ow! Jus’ fell on my bimbus! Ya lousy other meee—ya jus’ busted my precious teddy bear Yammicles in half! 

G2: No, I didn’t—yoooou stinkin’ ripped him in half!

F & F2 [in unison]: Youse both did!

F: An’ look, youse two Zig Gneeeceys—wasn’t even no cash inside that bear! Looks like jus’ a bunch of tokens jus’ fell out of your precious stuffed teddy bear!

SFX: [Clinking Coins]

F2: Yeah! Physical bitcoins!

G: Jus’ some tokens! An’ a few lousy paper IOUs!

G2: Oh, stinkin’ no!
