Yami: In tonight's episode, the part of Tristan Taylor will be played by Barney the Dinosaur.

Inside the school

Bakura: I say, Yugi, can I play too?

Yugi: Sorry, Bakura, main characters only.

Joey: Playin' card games sure beats doing school work. Arithmetic is for losers!

Téa plays a card

Joey: Now I just gotta subtract your defense points from my attack points and.. and uh.. wait a minute, how do I do that?

Téa: It's official: you're an idiot.

Tristian: (singing) I love you! You love me! We're a happy family!


Joey: Tristan's song taught me a valuable lesson. I need ta learn how to be a better duelist! Ya gotta help me out here, Yug!

Yugi: Let me see your deck.

Yugi:' (thinking): Oh man, his deck is even more powerful than mine! Woah, the Dark Magician! I just gotta have that! (aloud) Jeez, Joey, your cards are worthless! Tell you what, why don't I get rid of these, and we'll go visit Gramps and set you up with a new special super awesome deck?

Joey: Thanks, Yug, you're always lookin' out for me.

Grandpa's store

Grandpa: (stroking poster) Oh Black Luster Soldier, no-one must ever know of our forbidden love..

Joey: Hey, Yugi's Grandpa! How about training me up ta be Duel Monsters Champ over here?

Grandpa: Very well, but it will require hours of rigorous off-screen practice.

Joey: Really? I don't even get a training montage?

Grandpa: Who do you think you are, Rocky Balboa?


TV Announcer: Welcome to the Regional Championship where the comic relief villains are having a meaningless duel! I can't believe we're actually airing this on TV, folks!

Rex Raptor and Weevil Underwood appear on the screen

(Yugi's room, watching TV)

Joey: Man, I loooove the Card Game Channel!

Yugi: It's almost as good as the Watching Paint Dry Channel!

Grandpa: There's a package here for you, Yugi! You better not have been using my credit card to buy Duel Monsters merchandise off eBay again!

Yugi: It's from Industrial Illusions. I guess they heard about my victory over Kaiba.

Joey: Yeah, those card games are big news. It completely overshadowed the fact that he kidnapped and hospitalized your Grandpa!

Tristan: Hey, look! I'm on TV!

Joey: What are ya talking about, Tristan? That's just a purple dinosaur.

(On TV, Rex has summoned Two-Headed King Rex)

Rex: Uh-huh-huh.. hey Weevil, check it out. My dinosaur's horny. Uh-huh-huh.. get it?

Weevil: Yeah, heh-heh-heh.. yeah, heh-heh-heh-heh.

Rex: It's like, your move, or something?

Weevil: Heh-heh-heh, bugs are cool, heh-heh-heh.

Weevil plays Basic Insect


Yugi: These guys sound awfully familiar.


Rex: So like, I'll, attack or something?

Weevil: You like, activated my Trap Card, buttmunch. Heh-heh-heh-heh.

Rex: Uh-huh-huh, no way.

Weevil: FIRE! FIRE! Yeah, heh-heh-heh-heh-heh-heh

Weevil activates Laser Cannon Armor and Basic Insect destroys Two-Headed King Rex

Rex: This sucks! I'm gonna go, like, get some nachos.

TV Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, let's hear it for Maximillion PEAAAAAGASUS!

Pegasus: Congratulations, Mr. Underwood, here's your trophy. Now allow me to render your victory utterly pointless by announcing a far more interesting contest with a much grander title up for grabs!

Weevil: Woah, heh, this chick is hot! Heh, heh...

(Yugi's room)

Yugi: Hey, there was a video inside the package! (puts video in player)

Grandpa: I just hope it's not one of those cursed video tapes that are all the rage these days..

Pegasus (on tape): Seven days.

Grandpa: Oh snap, I knew it!

Pegasus: That's right, Yugi-boy! There are only seven days 'til Duelist Kingdom! And in order to get you to enter I'm going to force you to play a Shadow Game! Win in 15 minutes and I'll release your friends.

Yugi is sucked into the Shadow Realm

Yami: That's fine by me, Pegasus! I'll beat you with the cards I took from- I mean, the cards that Joey gave me!

Pegasus: You won't beat anyone with that Dragon card.

Yami: You can see into my mind?

Pegasus: Yes, Pharaoh-boy! And I can see that you and I have a great deal in common!

Yami: What's that supposed to mean?

Pegasus: Isn't it obvious?

Yami: Look, pal, just because I inhabit the body of a teenage boy doesn't mean I'm a-

Pegasus: Oh come now, Pharaoh-boy, don't be so gauche! I was referring to our Millennium Items.

Yami: Oh... right, I knew that!

(24 sequence)

Pegasus: What would you say if I told you I didn't actually create Duel Monsters, and that it's actually based on mystical duels held by powerful pharaohs many thousands of years ago?

Yami: Whatchoo talking 'bout Pegasus?

Pegasus: These pharaohs battled with real monsters and real magic! So, as you can imagine, it was a great deal more exciting than the watered down product I created.

Yami: Wait a minute! You're just using this monologue to stall for time!

(Timer reaches 00:00)

Pegasus: Well it worked, didn't it?

Yami: You're a cheat!

Pegasus: No, my strategy was merely-

Yami: Hey, everybody! Pegasus is a big stinky cheater!

Pegasus: Ooh, so that's the way it's going to be, is it? Fine then. Let's see how your Grandpa manages- without his soul! Ooooh, I'm so ambiguously camp!

Grandpa's soul floats out of his body

Grandpa: (soul, on tape) Yuuugiiii....

Yami changes back to Yugi

Yugi: You bastard! You turned him into a mime! Grandpa! Graaaandpaaaa!

Joey: Hey, Yug, down in front, will ya?

Tristan: Yeah, we were watching that!



Marik (as Lex Luthor from Superman Returns): Come on, let me hear you say it, just once.

Téa (as Lois Lane): You're insane-

Marik: NO! No, not that, the other thing.

Téa: Superman will never...

Marik: WRONG!


  • The episode title is a reference to the Rocky series of films.
  • The intro alludes to '50s sitcoms' end credits where a voiceover would state the guest stars in that episode.
  • Yami's "What'choo talkin' 'bout, Pegasus" retort is a reference to Arnold Jackson's catchphrase "What'choo talkin' 'bout, Willis" from the sitcom Diff'rent Strokes.
  • The 24-style scene shows four split screens with a timer much like the commercial break scenes shown in the series.
