All three episodes in one easy-to-eat-popcorn-while-watching video.
EXT. DINGY BAR - ESTABLISHING
LOWER THIRD: BOGOTA, COLOMBIA
ANGLE ON a SPANISH SIGN, SUB-TITLED as "The Devil's
Vengeance Bar & Froyo Stand."
A FIGURE approaches the bartender. (NOTE: We only see him in
silhouette.) He hands him a photo.
I'm looking for a girl. An
The bartender nods to the back corner of the bar. PAN TO:
A rowdy CROWD stands behind a LARGE THUG. The thug, clearly
drunk, takes a shot of whiskey. The crowd CHEERS. Money and
a CHICKEN change hands.
REVEAL: DORA is across from him. She smiles and raises a
JUICE BOX into frame. Takes it down like a shot, crushes it,
and throws it over her shoulder. The crowd cheers LOUDER.
Money and a BABY change hands.
The thug, drunk and beaten, collapses. Dora picks up all the
money from the table and prepares to exit.
It's been a pleasure, amigos.
(helpful, to camera))
That's Spanish for friends. I'm
using it sarcastically.
She starts to exit, but a second THUG stands in her way.
You're going to want to let go of
You're not leaving with that money.
Dora smiles cutely, then FLIPS thug 2 onto the table. Two
more thugs charge her, but she punches each of them out.
WHAM! BAM! She turns around to run and finds herself face to
face with a LARGE THUG with a knife.
You know, you shouldn't use knives
without your parent's permission.
The thug approaches her when WHAM! The shadowy figure from
before, now revealed as DIEGO, punches the large thug.
Diego. What the hell do you want?
You disappeared, Dora. I was
worried about you.
A large thug approaches Dora. He takes two large swings,
they go WAY over Dora's head without her even ducking. Dora
uppercuts him, he flies back onto a table, BREAKING IT. Dora
and Diego banter back-and-forth as they fight the thugs:
I haven't needed a babysitter since
the third grade.
That was last year!
A BRAZILIAN MARTIAL ARTIST jumps in front of Diego, points,
and ferociously punches and kicks the air in an impressive
display. Diego, tense at first, realizes the fighter isn't
actually attacking, and awkwardly scooches past him.
He and Dora are now BACK TO BACK and fighting.
Look, it's Swiper, OK? He's working
with the Iranians now.
BAM. The both punch out the last two thugs they're fighting
simultaneously. Dora takes a breath.
And now you need an explorer. Too
bad. You know I'm out of the game.
Dora starts to walk away.
Dora, they're after the Destiny
Medallion! They've already swiped
the first half.
Dora stops. From her face we can tell this Medallion is
something she wants or fears. Maybe both.
But the No-Swiping Treaty of 1979-
You think Ahmadinejad gives a shit
Dora turns and walks back. Diego tosses some DOCUMENTS onto
the table. On the top is a picture of SWIPER with close-ups
of him holding a broken of half of the Destiny Medallion.
Admit it. All your exploring: The
quest for the little blue train.
The lost baby frog. The bullet that
killed Hitler. This Destiny
Medallion means more to you than
all those combined.
Dora thinks for a second. Then, HEROIC MUSIC rises and we
PUSH IN on her:
I'll do it. But not for you, and
not for the medallion. Someone
needs to remind that bastard what
he does is not OK. Someone needs to
look him in the eye and say,
"Swiper... No Swiping."
Dora reaches for the documents. Diego pulls them back.
One condition. I'm your partner.
A loud CLICK. Dora and Diego spin. One final thug has
recovered and now has a GUN trained on them!
End of the road, explorers.
Diego freezes, but Dora just WHISTLES. BLAM! Diego flinches,
but blood fills the thug's mouth. He falls forward to
reveal, holding a gun, BOOTS THE MONKEY!
Sorry, Diego, I already have a
Boots runs up onto Dora's shoulder.
(with a chuckle)
But you can tag along if you want.
She runs out the door. Diego smiles. Who is this girl? He
runs to follow her.
PAN ACROSS the bar to an IRANIAN SPY in the corner sipping a
drink. He pulls out his cell-phone.
She's taken the bait.
In an OMINOUS PULL OUT, we reveal the Brazilian Martial
Artist still punching and kicking the air.
(to Martial Artist)
Sorry, if you're not going to order
something you gotta go, man.
END OF PART 1
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.)
END PART 2.
INT. TEMPLE OF ANCIENTS
SWIPER and DIEGO walk DORA and BOOTS - their prisoners -
into a CREEPY TEMPLE. They're followed by the IRANIANS.
Don't look at me like that, Dora.
You know how tough exploring can
be. You quit the game, I found...
There's a difference between
exploring and swiping. You used to
SCARY MUSIC rises as the group passes horrific TROLL IMAGERY
on the wall. Eventually, one guard cracks and flees.
Grumpy Old Troll! Grumpy Old Troll!
Swiper SIGHS and shoots the fleeing guard in the back.
Is anybody else scared of the
Grumpy Old Troll?
The guards think about this. A SECOND GUARD flees. Swiper,
frustrated, shoots him.
Look, that wasn't- If you leave, I
shoot you, OK?
The group moves on. CUT TO:
INT. TEMPLE OF ANCIENTS - TROLL'S CHAMBERS
The group files into an inner chamber where a BEARDED TROLL
Welcome! I am the Grumpy Old Troll!
The guardian of this temple! Answer
my riddle, and I will reveal to you
the location of the Destiny
Medallion's final half!
Swiper turns to Dora.
Dora. Don't mess this up.
Otherwise, the monkey gets it.
Swiper aims his gun at Boots. Dora snarls at Swiper, then
turns to the Troll and focuses.
(clears this throat)
This thing all things devours /
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers /
Slays king, ruins town / And beats
high mountains down. What is it?
Dora struggles to find an answer. Finally, she SNAPS HER
FINGERS, takes off Backpack, and turns it on.
Backpack, Google the answer to that
The answer is: "Time."
GRUMPY OLD TROLL
Wha - No fair! Stupid Google!
Also, you stole it from "The
Nice going, Backpack!
Dora, run away with m-
An impatient Swiper steps forward, grabs Backpack, and
SMASHES IT TO THE GROUND, TOTALLY DESTROYING IT. (Nobody
really cares about this.)
OK. We answered your riddle.
Where's the medallion?
You have already found the other
half of the Destiny Medallion -
it's inside you.
What that now?
It's the lessons you've learned
along the way! For, truly, isn't
education the greatest treasure of
Dora spots something.
Hey, what's that in your hands?
Swiper sees it too now.
That's clearly the other half of
the Medallion! You were going to
keep it for yourself!
It's MINE! You'll never take it!
Swiper raises his gun to shoot the troll.
BLAM! It's too late. As the troll hits the ground, the
temple starts to shake and fall apart.
You fool! The Grumpy Old Troll was
the only thing temple together!
We're all going to die here now!
Fair enough. You first.
Swiper points a gun at Dora. Dora WHISTLES (like in Episode
1). Boots jumps onto Swiper's face.
I'm going to kill this stupid
Boots jumps off just as Swiper stupidly aims the gun at his
own head. BAM! Swiper blows his own head off. Boots grabs
the medallion and jumps up on her shoulder.
Nice work, partner.
As the temple crumbles around her, she runs to the exit...
INT. TEMPLE OF ANCIENTS
...where she's stopped by DIEGO! He holds a gun at Dora.
It doesn't have to end this way,
Dora. Join me. With the Destiny
Medallion, we don't just have to
explore the world... We can RULE
(with a smirk)
Sorry. Dora the Ruler just doesn't
have the same ring to it.
That's too bad.
Diego cocks his gun but, at the last second he's knocked out
by BENNY THE BULL! (Still missing an arm.)
Benny gives her a thumbs up and a cheesy grin. A ROCK falls
from the ceiling and knocks off his other arm.
Dora moves to help him.
Just go. I don't want to live like
Dora nods. Bravely salutes him. Runs out of the temple.
Dora LEAPS out of the temple door, a huge CLOUD OF DUST
emerging behind her. She lands hard on the ground. She picks
herself up and Boots runs up onto her shoulder.
Hell of a way to come out of
retirement, huh Boots?
We hear a HONK. WHIP TO REVEAL: Dora's Mom in a mini-van in
the MIDDLE OF THE JUNGLE.
Dora! Where have you been? It's
time for dinner! We're having fish
Aw, sweet! Fish sticks!
Dora runs into the mini-van. As it drives off into the
sunset, a RAP-ROCK version of the "We Did It Song" with
lyrics about series (TBD) plays in the background.
