Ben's parents witness Ben changing into an alien hero and watch him fight a HighBreed alien. When he returns home with a black eye and a lame story, he's forbidden from using the Omnitrix and grounded. They contact Gwen's parents, who subsequently restrict her activities as well, forcing Kevin to face the latest menace on his own. Kevin's going to need help. Can Ben and Gwen turn their backs on their friend in his hour of need? Written by

It's been established that injuries sustained by the Omnitrix aliens transfer proportionately to Ben when he returns to human form. The reverse does not appear to be true, as Ben's black eye, sustained while fighting as Swampfire, disappears completely in transforming into Echo Echo before becoming Ben again. Black eyes aren't all that swift to go away, and it seems only fair that Ben and all the other Omnitrix aliens should share in Swampfire's black eye for awhile. See more
I'm sorry. I love you guys. You're awesome parents. You raised me by example, and time after time I've seen you put people's needs first. I can't obey you now without disobeying everything you've ever taught me about life, the world, and responsibility.
Ben, we FORBID you to...
So when I get back, punish me however you want, but right now I have a friend who's in trouble!
