: [after seeing the picture of Greedly's oil-drilling and one of oil spilling into a river on Planet Vision, sees factories polluting the air, cars polluting the air, a bird clutching garbage flying over a trashed ocean, a deforested land
] It's worse than I thought! Earth is dying.
: [after the Planeteers' transportation, floats down to them
] Welcome, to Hope Island! Wheeler
: Yo, say, lady - you wanna explain what's going on here? Gaia
] Hm. So much for drama.
: [seeing Wind and Earth are two powers
] Hey, what's my element? Water? Fire?
[his ring shoots a blast of fire, setting alight the wood floor
: Yow! Sorry. You got an extinguisher? Gaia
: Better than that. Gi, your power is Water. Gi
: All right. Here it goes - Water!
[causes a column of it to arise from the river which sweeps over the hut and the Planeteers, who yell out
: Nice job, toots. I'm all wet. Linka
: You certainly are. At least the fire is out. Wheeler
: Oh, yeah.
: What do you think *your* power is, Ma-Ti? Ma-Ti
: I already know.
[his ring glows as he looks up; without moving his lips
: Mine - is Heart. I can sense you all, hear your thoughts, feel your feelings! Linka
: Bosha moy. I can hear him - in my head! Gaia
: [touching his shoulder, his arm
] That's right. Ma-Ti, yours is the greatest power of all. Because without a Heart to guide them, the other powers are useless. Through you the others will always be linked, no matter where they are.
] Don't worry, Planeteers. Though I need to stay at Hope Island, I will be with you in spirit.
: Fat lot of good that'll do us in a fire-fight!
[his ring causes a blaze on the aisle floor
: Wheeler, don't say "fire" until you mean it!
: And if we encounter a situation which we cannot handle? Gaia
: Well, just put your powers together. Then you'll *really* be surprised.
] Wait a minute! What's *that* supposed to mean? Gi
: Sit down, Yankee. Linka
: And fasten the seat-belt for your safety. Wheeler
] Didn't know you cared.
: Did you know that whales may be as smart as humans? Wheeler
] Then why haven't they invented anything? Gaia
: You mean like weapons that could end all life on Earth?
: People would not kill each other over simple quarrels. Gaia
: These aren't simple quarrels. Each one is a blood-fued that has gone on for generations. Hate has become stronger than logic.
: If an atomic bomb goes off, even Captain Planet couldn't save you. Kwame
: [running to stand before her with the others
] Gaia, we must go! Gi
: Yeah; right! Wheeler
: Right, you gotta let us try! Linka
: Dah! Gaia
] And Skumm said there's no hope for humanity.
: Gaia, how do we overcome such hate? Gaia
: With the truth.
: Gaia, six people have learned to forgive. But millions more have not. Gi
: We have not ended anything. Gaia
: No. But you've made a beautiful beginning.
[the others agree
: Wheeler - what have you *done*? Wheeler
: I stopped being a Planeteer so I wouldn't die in an ice-cave. That's all. Gaia
: No, that's *not* all. You've changed history; look! Wheeler
: [glances behind where she points to see a man in a tank-top sit on a curb then take out a newspaper to fan himself, wipes his own forehead
] Yeah. It's hot. And it was cold, a minute ago. But wait a second!
[whirls back to her
: How could I change the weather? All I did was quit the Planeteers!
: [of Greedly and Rigger's time-travel that caused the increased global-warming
] Why didn't Captain Planet stop them? Gaia
: Captain Planet does *not exist*. You changed history. You never joined the Planeteers, so there *are* no Planeteers. They each went their own separate ways. Wheeler
: [sees the Time Pool's image of the others parting
] Aw, c'mon, Gaia, you could've found someone else to be a Planeteer instead of me. Gaia
: No. Each individual has a unique role to play. You were supposed to set an example for countless others.
: [about to enter the future
] Man, I'll see all the progress, the new inventions... This is *excellent*! Gaia
: We'll see if you like what you find.
: MAL, send Wheeler into the future. MAL
: Oh, really? What if I refuse? Gaia
: You're right near the North Pole. What if the Earth's magnetic field suddenly gets a lot more... powerful? MAL
: [looks worried as he begins to shake and sport static
[something bangs offscreen
: Ow! Don't - Stop! The magnetism will erase my data!
[a part hits the monitor
: Oww! All right, I'll do it. No need to get geophysical.
: What's the trouble, Gaia? And who's the rat responsible? Gaia
: Rat indeed, Wheeler. This time the culprit is the most sinister rodent that ever lived - Verminous Skumm. Wheeler
: [seeing his picture
] He's an exterminator's worst nightmare.
: [she appears while he is on the wall
] I cannot make it. Gaia
: Yes, you can, Ma-Ti. The only thing holding you back is your fear. Look into your heart, and you'll find all the strength you need.
[his rings glows
: With courage, you can accomplish anything. The power is yours.
: The feeling that one person can't make a difference is the greatest obstacle of all.
: All *right*! Life is Good but wind-surfing's great! AHH!
] Sorry to take the wind out of your sails, Wheeler, but we need you. Linka
: [he arrives at the Crystal Chamber
] Wheeler, you are all wet - as usual. Wheeler
: This better be good. Gaia
: I'm afraid it's very bad.
[turns on the Planet Vision
: Argos Bleak is harpooning everything in sight that has a dorsal fin. That nurse shark is *not* a man-eater. It's *afraid* of people. Linka
: [as he raises what he harpooned, sees the carcasses of others he already hung on the boat's side
] Apparently with good reason. Gaia
: Those sharks weren't dangerous. And they don't stand a chance against Bleak's hunting gear. Wheeler
: [sees another shark chomping on jellyfish
] Ugh! That ugly sucker has *got* to be a man-eater! Gaia
: The goblin shark won't win any beauty contests, but it eats only small animals.
: Humans are a much greater threat to sharks than sharks are to humans.
: All right, Gaia. But it feels kinda weird trying to save some bloodthirsty shark. Gaia
: Bleak is bloodthirsty. A shark is just a predator like a wolf or a tiger. It keeps other animals from overpopulating. If you'd ever been stung by a stingray, you might *wish* there were more sharks.
: The hardest thing to change is people's minds.
: The problem is too big. And people will never change.
[starts to cry
: I have failed. Gaia
] Hello, Kwame. Kwame
: Hello, Gaia.
: How did you find me? Gaia
: I knew you would go to a forest when you needed to think. Kwame
: I think very soon *this* forest will be buried in garbage. Gaia
: I know things look bad, but you see the scar on this old tree? It almost died in a fire years ago. It did not give up. It kept on growing. Look around. The forest is full of reasons for hope.
: I was wrong. And Sludge was right; people just do not care. Ma-Ti
: You must not say that. Captain Planet will deal with Sludge. Kwame
: [sighs; morosely
] Very well, Ma-Ti. Let out powers combine. Earth...
[his ring glows and hums weakly then dies down and emits smoke, he cries as the others stare in shock
: Kwame, what's wrong? Kwame
: I will *tell* you what is wrong! This problem is too big for even Captain Planet! It is hopeless. Gaia
] Kwame, you must not give up hope. That is the source of your root of powr. Kwame
: Then it is too late, Gaia. How I can believe in people when they turn their own world into a trash-dump?
[removes his ring
: You must give this to someone else. It does not work for me anymore.
[tosses it in the air, it vanishes with a flash that briefly blocks Gaia's image before she is seen again, looking pained
: [after Gi blasts him off his raft with Water
] It is a good thing my camera is waterproof. Gi
: It's a good thing you weren't hurt, getting as close to the whales as you did! Kwame
: They are huge. Gaia
] Doing some underwater photography, Kwame? Kwame
: Not intentionally, Gaia.
: Unfortunately, the International Whaling Treaty has some loopholes. Some people still kill whales, in the name of scientific research. Gi
: Research? But that's killing! That's - that's... Gaia
: [grips her shoulders
] Cruel, dishonest, inhumane, and in this case illegal. That's why I want you to put a stop to it. Gi
: You don't have to ask twice! Let's go!
[the five run off
: If the rest of the world were like them, I could take a permanent vacation.
: A good zoo tries to recreate the animals' natural home, but if *all* the wilderness is destroyed, these magnificent animals will end up in cramped concrete prisons.
: Thanks for bringing back my Planeteers, Collector. Collector
: [with two unidentifiable creatures
] It's a rare pleasure, Gaia. Most of my creatures no longer have homes to return to. Gaia
: Just one other thing - I'd rather you left *those* two behind as well.
[gestures to Greedly and Blight, in one of Collector's matrices ready to be transported, Collector releases them
: Now behave yourselves. Hoggish Greedly
: Oh, y-y-y-y-yes, yes, sir, uh, uh, uh, ma'am, uh, it. Dr. Blight
: ...Whatever you say!
[they hustle off
: You know, Gaia, I didn't think anyone would miss those two. Gaia
: No one would. It's just that I can't bear to have the rest of the galaxy think *they* represent humanity. Gaia
: It *would* be a shame. Wouldn't it? Linka
: YES! Collector
: And now, I must return to the Space Ark. Keep up your good work, Planeteers.
[speaks in his native language, Gaia says something back, and with a last word he enters a pipe into space and vanishes
: Hey, I didn't know you could speak his language. What'd he say? Gaia
: Collector says that no matter where you're from or what language you speak, we're all in this together.
: [after his crash-landing on Hope Island
] Well, at least my Earthpower still works. Gaia
: So does your Heartpower. And you're going to need it for what lies ahead.
: MAL broke the connection before the president could give the order! Gaia
: Then you must get to the power-plant and stop Blight yourself. Captain Planet
: But, Gaia, what good is a superhero without superpowers? Gaia
: [touches his shouler
] You still have the power that counts most - your courage. Gaia
: Thanks, Gaia.
: [afer he bursts back onto the Ecocopter
] Did you get anything? Wheeler
: Yeah, I got the creeps! I never saw so many poor people in my life! Why don't they get real jobs and get off the street? Kwame
: There is not enough work in the city for everyone. Ma-Ti
: Do not be so quick to judge them, Wheeler. You have never been poor. Gaia
] Ma-Ti is right, Wheeler. Except for a twist of fate, you might be in the shoes of that man you stumbled over. Wheeler
: Aw, c'mon. I'd never let myself sink *that* low, Gaia.
[everyone yells as the ground rumbles, he falls back with Ma-Ti and Kwame
: OK, OK. You don't have to get mad. Gaia
: When I *do* get mad, you'll know it. But that wasn't me.
: The quake hit hardest in Santa Teresa, a small farming-village just north of here. At least... it *used* to be a village.
: Hey, if you were trying to impress a babe, Ma-Ti, what would you get her for her birthday? Ma-Ti
] You speak of Linka, my friend? Wheeler
: No. Yeah. Well, maybe you could tune into her mind and see what that brusky babe would like Gaia
: [Gaia appears from behind, they turn to face her
] To the Crystal Chamber, Planeteers. We have an eco-emergency.
[disappears, Ma-Ti turns back to face the way they sail
: [concentrating on moving the board to increase speed
] C'mon, Ma-Ti. When the Spirit of Earth calls, we gotta boogie.
[finally turns around...
: Wheeler - be careful with the sail!
[he then Wheeler fall off and underwater, then grab the surf and glance to shore
] Come, my wet-head comrades. We must hurry. Ma-Ti
: [regains his hat
] However you decide to impress Linka, that was not the way to do it.
: Spirit of Earth to Ma-Ti...
: [places his hand over the Planet Vision upon seeing the villagers cowering as weapons are being bought
] I cannot look at this! It hurts too much to see such suffering! Gaia
: I know. But only when people realize the consequences of war, Ma-Ti, will they find the wisdom to stop it.
: [Gaia shows a hologram
] All right, my hometown! The Big Apple! Gaia
: [shows another of it flooded heavily
] It could be the Rotton Apple if we don't stop global warming from melting the polar ice caps.
: Whoa. Talk about rock-and-roll. Good thing there aren't any people on that island. Gaia
: But there *are* animals, and the fire and dust that meteor unleashed will kill them, unless you help. Linka
: At least it does not threaten the entire planet. Gaia
: I'm not so sure, Linka. I sense great, great danger.
: Resign? Over a few toxic spills? Let me guide you. Together, we'll run this nation with an iron fist. Dictator
: But what if there is opposition? I am not popular in the countryside.
[gasps as Zarm enters his body
: Then I have a little strategy. I call it Scorched Earth.
[laughs, then gasps as a light appears
: Gaia! Gaia
: Don't get too comfortable, Zarm. Wherever your destructive ideas emerge, the Planeteers will be there to stop them.
: [Wheeler is disarmed
] You ain't goin' nowhere, boy. Gaia
] But you are.
[Bart screams and flees
: [appears after Wheeler sets his water-spraying trap off after Linka and Gi have passed and steps in the path just in time to be sprayed by it himself
] I don't even want to know.
: Those rats aren't normal. I suspect foul play. Kwame
: Or a *rodent* at play.
: I will be with you, in spirit.
: So they reproduce 'til they starve to death? Wheeler
: No wonder they call 'em simple organisms. How could they be so dumb? Gaia
] At least they're not heating up the Earth or wrecking the ozone-layer. Linka
: Dah. It takes *people* to do that. Gaia
: And speaking of planet-wreckers, there's something fishy on the Island of Moghal. Kwame
: [by the Planet Vision showing it
] Everything on Moghal is fishy. It is a fishing village.
: I can't believe it got hot so fast! Gi
: A quick dip will cool us off.
[they dive into the sea before surfacing
: No, it won't. This ocean is as warm as bathwater. Gi
: Wheeler, something is really wrong. Gaia
] That's an understatement, Gi.
