Dora's journey continues, with (poor) help from some friends.
(Previously: Part One)
By Patrick Cassels & Ben Joseph
DORA, BOOTS on her shoulder, and DIEGO hike through DENSE
JUNGLE. Ahead is their guide - BENNY "THE BULL."
Come on! This way! Watch out for
parrots! Very poisonous!
Dora, are you sure this guy can
lead us to the Destiny Medallion?
Listen: There's a reason they call
him Benny "the Bull" Gronkowski.
He's the toughest, most reliable
Benny stops and turns around.
We are so lost.
Wait, no, the call him "the bull"
because of the nose ring. Damn it.
What do we do now?
I'll use BACKPACK.
Dora takes off her backpack.
Dora turns it over, revealing the label "B.A.C.K.P.A.C.K."
and some fancy computer stuff. She switches it on.
Binary Actualized Computational
Kinetic Processor... Ack.
A Knight Rider-style LIGHT flashes on Backpack.
The Destiny Medallion emits faint
background radiation. If it's
close, BACKPACK will detect it.
Good afternoon, Dora. According to
my scans, the Destiny Medallion
is... 3 km North by Northeast of
Great! Good work, backpack.
Also, I love you D-
Dora TURNS OFF Backpack and slings it over her shoulders.
EXT. TOMB OF THE ANCIENTS - LATER
The three explorers reach a STONE TEMPLE WALL.
The Tomb of the Ancients. The
Destiny Medallion has been buried
here for a millenia.
That means a thousand years.
It's riddles have confounded
generations of explorers.
REVEAL: Three SHAPES - TRIANGLE, SQUARE and CIRCLE - are
carved into the wall. Three TV-sized blocks that clearly fit
into the holes are nearby. It's a preschool-level puzzle.
(shaking his fists with rage)
GIVE UP YOUR SECRETS!!!
BENNY THE BULL
Psh, you kiddin' me?
Benny confidently picks up the SQUARE BLOCK and wedges it
into the CIRCLE HOLE.
He turns to give Dora a thumbs up when WHAM! A giant hanging
BAMBOO SCYTHE flies through frame and cuts off Benny's arm.
He SCREAMS IN AGONY and stumbles off-screen.
We should turn back.
No. I think I can do this.
Dora centers herself, then, to camera:
Do you know how to solve the
She listens. Diego's POV: Dora is listening to NOTHING.
You're one crazy chola, Dora.
After a beat of intense listening, Dora comes back.
OK. Here we go.
We enter a very intense PUZZLE SOLVING SEQUENCE, with all
the tension of Indiana Jones swapping out the idol:
- Dora considers all three shapes, then CAREFULLY puts the
square in the square hole. It works. Phew!
- Dora, holding the triangle, looks between the circle and
the triangle holes. She goes toward the circle. She's about
to put it in when...
- She steps back and puts the triangle in the triangle hole.
She did it! She finishes by putting the square in the square
and a GIANT STONE DOOR SLIDES OPEN!
As the temple opens, HARD CUT from epic John Williams-style
music to Dora's HAPPY CONGA "WE DID IT" song. She dances:
We did it! We did it!
CLICK. A gun cock cuts off Dora's song. WHIP TO REVEAL:
SWIPER and a squad of IRANIAN SOLDIERS!
Correction: We did it.
Diego! Watch out, it's-
Diego pulls a SECOND GUN on Dora.
-Swiper? I know.
We appreciate the help, Dora, but
we'll take it from here.
Come on, boys! Destiny awaits.
Swiper marches toward the temple as the guards march toward
Dora and Boots with handcuffs. (Boots' pair is a tiny pair
of monkey handcuffs.)
