Hey guys. Mods feel free to move it if neccessary. Today I had a wicked hankering to write an episode of GI JOE. So I started and am about half way done.

Imagine this as a Sunbow episode after the movie.



ACT ONE

FADE IN:

EXT. GI JOE HEADQUARTERS - EVENING

THE SUN IS JUST STARTING TO GO DOWN ON THE BASE. A TRIO OF CONQUEST JETS ARE APPROACHING FOR LANDING.

INT. GI JOE HEADQUARTERS - COMPUTER CENTER - EVENING

DIAL-TONE AND MAINFRAME SIT IN FRONT OF THE MASSIVE COMPUTER BANKS.

DIAL-TONE

Well, Mainframe, everything's in check.

MAINFRAME

Routine as usual. Ever since Cobra lost that battle in the Himalayas it's been smooth sailing around here.

DIAL-TONE

We only have one team out in the field even. Hopefully they are getting a little excitement.

MAINFRAME

Beachhead's team can handle anything. Even if they do get some action, it probably wouldn't last very long.

EXT. JUNGLE RIVER - DAY

BEACHHEAD, LEATHERNECK AND WETSUIT DUCK BEHIND AN OVERTURNED BOAT AT THE SHORELINE. LAZER BLASTS FLY PAST THEM. THEY RETURN FIRE.

LEATHERNECK

We've been pinned down for hours Beachhead.

BEACHHEAD

You think I can't tell time Leatherneck?

ACROSS THE RIVER ARE DOZENS OF RIVER PIRATES.

BEACHHEAD

We don't move until Recondo and Footloose return. No sense pulling back if all we are doing is pulling back into an ambush.

WETSUIT

Yeah ya jarhead.

LEATHERNECK

Why don't you make yourself useful squidboy and swim across the river and take the fight to them?

WETSUIT

I would if we hadn't of lost all our gear when our boat got hit. Someone was supposed to be on guard.

LEATHERNECK

I was watching-

BEACHHEAD

If you two old ladies don't stop bickering I'll toss both of you into the river.

A GRENADE LANDS IN FRONT OF THEIR BOAT.

LEATHERNECK

Down!

THE GRENADE STARTS LETTING OFF SMOKE.

RECONDO AND FOOTLOOSE CRAWL OUT OF THE JUNGLE AND UP TO THE THREE OTHER JOES.

FOOTLOSE

Hey dudes, it's like a rock concert out here with all the lazers and smoke.

BEACHHEAD

Can it Footloose. Is the path clear?

RECONDO

Clear, Beachhead. We even found a hut we can use for cover.

BEACHHEAD

Let's move it Joes!

THE JOES RETREAT INTO THE JUNGLE UNDER THE COVER OF SMOKE.

INT. GI JOE HEADQUARTERS - COMPUTER CENTER - NIGHT

DIAL-TONE AND MAINFRAME SIT AS BEFORE. MAINFRAME YAWNS AND THEN STANDS.

MAINFRAME

Well I'm off duty Dial-tone. It's all yours.

DIAL-TONE

You have a good night. Big plans?

MAINFRAME

Oh yeah, I've got a date with Scarlet and Covergirl.

DIAL-TONE

Make sure your health insurance is paid up.

A RED LIGHT BEGINS TO FLASH ON THE CONSOLE.

DIAL-TONE

Uh-oh.

MAINFRAME

What is it?

DIAL-TONE

Beachhead's team is offically overdue for check in.

MAINFRAME

That's not like Beachhead.

DIAL-TONE

I know. We better tell Flint.

EXT. JUNGLE HUT - DAY

THE FIVE JOES WALK UP TO THE HUT.

BEACHHEAD

You check it for traps?

RECONDO

No tripwires, no tiger traps. I won't vouch for anything else.

FOOTLOSE

It's a port and it's storming.

RECONDO

I'm going to circle back and lay some claymores on the path. If those pirates come calling we'll hear the bells.

RECONDO GOES BACK INTO THE JUNGLE.

BEACHHEAD

Let's get this hut turned into a fort pronto Joes.

INT. GI JOE HEADQUARTERS - COMPUTER CENTER - NIGHT

FLINT, DRINKING A CUP OF COFFEE AND OBVIOUSLY JUST WOKEN UP, WALKS INTO THE ROOM. DIAL-TONE AND MAINFRAME ARE WAITING.

FLINT

What's the situation Dial-Tone.

DIAL-TONE

Beachhead hasn't checked in.

FLINT

That's not like Beachhead.

MAINFRAME

That's what I said.

FLINT

We have their last known coordinates. Falcon has a team stationed in Japan. We'll call them in and hope they are not too late.

EXT. JUNGLE - DAY

RECONDO PLANTS A CLAYMORE ALONG THE PATH.

RECONDO

That's the last one.

IN THE DISTANCE HE CAN HEAR THE PIRATES APPROACHING.

RECONDO

That's my cue.

A SHADOW FALLS OVER HIS BACK. HE TURNS AROUND.

RECONDO

What the-

A BLACK BOOK KICKS HIM THE FACE AND KNOCKS HIM UNCONSCIOUS.

END OF ONE

ACT TWO

SCENE

EXT. AIRCRAFT CARRIER DECK - DAY

A TOMAHAWK CHOPPER SITS ON THE DECK. FALCON AND LIFT-TICKET ARE TALKING BY THE COCKPIT.

LIFT-TICKET

I can get you there soon enough. Where's your team?

FALCON

They're coming.

FIVE JOES BEGIN TO WALK TOWARD THE CHOPPER. THERE ARE SEASONED VETERANS; SPIRIT AND GUNG-HO. THEY ARE JOINED BY NEWER JOES; HIT AND RUN, TUNNEL RAT, AND REPEATER.

LIFT-TICKET

Five? I thought your team was six?

FALCON

It is. One of them hopped in a rowboat. He said he had his own way of getting there.

LIFT-TICKET

And you let him do it?

FALCON

A good leader knows when not to question his men.

LIFT-TICKET

What's your excuse?

FALCON

Watch it chopper chump.

(to his team)

Get on board. We've got Joes whose butts might need saving.

THE JOES GET ON THE CHOPPER AND IT TAKES OFF.

EXT. JUNGLE HUT - DAY

THE HUT NOW LOOKS LARGELY DEFENSIBLE. BRACHES COVER PARTS OF IT MAKING IT LOOK BIGGER THAN IT IS. TWO MAKESHIFT PILLBOXES GUARD THE FRONT. WETSUIT IS IN ONE AND LEATHERNECK IS IN THE OTHER.

WETSUIT

Flat head.

LEATHERNECK

Wet brain.

INT. HUT - DAY

FOOTLOSE GUARDS A BACK DOOR ON THE HUT. BEACHHEAD GOES THROUGH THEIR BACK PACKS.

BEACHHEAD

We're low on ammo. Low on grenades.

FOOTLOSE

Bummer.

BEACHHEAD

Yeah. Bummer. Where's Recondo? He should have been back by now. I'd hate to think-

FOOTLOSE

Don't think it then. Stay positive man.

EXT. JUNGLE HUT - SAME

AN EXPLOSION IS HEARD FROM THE JUNGLE.

LEATHERNECK

You hear that?

WETSUIT

About a second before you did.

LEATHERNECK

Then why aren't you firing?

WETSUIT

Ladies first.

A LAZER BLAST BARELY MISSES WETSUIT. THE TWO JOES BEGIN FIRING. BEACHHEAD APPEARS IN THE DOOR AND STARTS FIRING.

BEACHHEAD

Footloose, cover our backs.

THE RIVER PIRATES START POURING OUT OF THE JUNGLE.

BEACHHEAD

They must have captured Recondo.

THE PIRATES SURROUND THE HUT.

INT. JUNGLE HUT - SAME

FOOTLOOSE IS FIRING OUT OF THE BACK DOOR.

FOOTLOSE

You know what I wish guys? That like, a Tomahawk with a platoon of reinforcements just appeared on the horizon.

EXT. JUNGLE HUT - SAME

LEATHERNECK

Footloose, why don't you- Look!

THE TOMAHAWK APPEARS ON THE HORIZON. IT CIRCLES AROUND THE HUT AND DRIVES THE PIRATES BACK INTO THE JUNGLE. THE CHOPPER LANDS.

FOOTLOSE

I wish I had a million dollars.

FALCON

Will you settle for some dogface soldiers?

FOOTLOSE

That's cool too.

BEACHHEAD

Thanks for the save Lieutenant.

FALCON

Don't mention it. Flint called us out when you got overdue on the check in. Now I see why. So those pirates working for Cobra or what?

BEACHHEAD

They are working for someone. They are too well armed to just be your usual band of cutthroats. Worst of all we think they got Recondo.

FALCON

All right let's split up. Spirit you see if you can get Recondo's trail. Take Tunnel Rat, Hit and Run, and Leatherneck. Everyone else back on the chopper. We'll get an aerial view.

BEACHHEAD

Hold up a minute-

FALCON

Beachhead, the mission is mine now. Stand down.

BEACHHEAD

Yes sir.

FALCON

Spirit take a radio. Stay in contact.

SPIRIT TAKES HIS TEAM INTO THE JUNGLE.

THE REST OF THE JOES GET BACK ON BOARD. BEACHHEAD AND FOOTLOOSE ARE THE LAST ONES.

BEACHHEAD

A few months ago I was barking orders at him now look at him.

FOOTLOSE

Just goes to show what a good teacher you are Beachhead.

BEACHHEAD

Your positivity is getting on my last nerve.

EXT. JUNGLE - DAY

SPIRIT LEADS THE THREE OTHER JOES TO THE SPOT WHERE RECONDO WAS ATTACKED.

SPIRIT

He planted the last claymore here. This is where the trail ends.

LEATHERNECK

This is where the pirates got him?

SPIRIT

Not pirates.

TUNNEL RAT

No pirates? Then who grabbed him?

SPIRIT

The pirates wear sandles. The tracks around here are boots.

TUNNEL RAT

All right, let's go after anyone with boots.

HIT AND RUN FINDS RECONDO'S HAT A FEW STEPS OFF THE PATH.

HIT AND RUN

I've never met the man. Is this his hat?

LEATHERNECK

Darn right it's his hat. You new jokers have no respect for the originals.

HIT AND RUN

Sorry.

SPIRIT

The trail goes off this way.

SPIRIT WALKS INTO THE JUNGLE.

EXT. JUNGLE - LATER

THE JOES ON THE GROUND MAKE THEIR WAY THROUGH THE JUNGLE.

SPIRIT

The foot trail is coming to an end.

LEATHERNECK

So we lost them?

SPIRIT

I said the foot trail.

SPIRIT PULLS ASIDE SOME BRANCHES TO REVEAL A CLEARING. SEVERAL SETS OF TANK TREAD MARKS MOVE AWAY FROM THEM AND INTO THE JUNGLE, CLEARING A WIDE PATH.

TUNNEL RAT

You gotta be kidding me.

ABOVE, THE JOES IN THE TOMAHAWK SEE THE TRAIL AS WELL. IT APPEARS TO GO FAR INTO THE DISTANCE.

SPIRIT

Falcon-

FALCON

I see it Spirit. I see it. That's not a normal tread design. And I don't recognize it as Cobra. Who are we up against?

END OF

ACT TWO
