Toy Story of Terror (2013 TV Short)
Buzz Lightyear: Not to worry. We're all right here. See, there's Woody, Pricklepants, Trixie, Rex... Wait, where's Potato Head?
Mr. Pricklepants: And so it begins.
Woody: Pricklepants, you're not helping!
Trixie: It's been a while. I don't think she's coming back.
Mr. Pricklepants: Patience. Cinematic structure dictates that it's always darkest...
Mr. Potato Head: Can it, Pants! Life ain't a movie! They ain't never coming back!
Rex: Look, they're coming back!
Combat Carl: Combat Carl never gives up. Combat Carl finds a way.
Mr. Pricklepants: The roadside motel is one of the most common settings for a horror movie. Remote, isolated, ordinary. A quiet environment to alleviate the audience's expectations. I'll be expecting her to ask the inkeeper for the phone any minute now.
Bonnie's Mom: Can we use your phone? Our car has a flat.
Mr. Pricklepants: Right on cue.
Combat Carl: When Combat Carl is in a jam, he says to himself, "Combat Carl never gives up. Combat Carl finds a way." Now say it!
Jessie: Combat Carl never gives up...
Combat Carl: You're not Combat Carl!
Jessie: Oh! Jessie never gives up! Jessie finds a way!
Jessie: Where are you going?
Mr. Potato Head: We're at a motel. I'm checking out the amenities. You know, the free stuff? Little soaps, shower caps, shampoo, conditioner.
Mr. Pricklepants: I wouldn't do that if I were you. In horror movies the first to leave is usually the first to get it.
Woody: Potato Head, don't leave the bag. A motel is one of the easiest places for a toy to get lost.
Mr. Potato Head: Ah, shut your worry hole. Nobody's getting lost. Besides, I promissed Hamm I'd bring him something nice.
Jessie: Where are you guys going?
Trixie: We're gonna see the free stuff.
Mr. Pricklepants: And if something does happen to the potato, I wouldn't want to miss it.
Buzz Lightyear: [while watching the movie] Tactics, Betsy, tactics. Find something to defend yourself with.
[Betsy grabs a vase]
Buzz Lightyear: There you go.
Mr. Pricklepants: Completely uselsess! Everyone knows a stake through the heart is the only way to defeat a vampire.
Rex: So what happens next?
Mr. Pricklepants: Usually this is the point of the story where the characters are picked off one by one.
[He is snatched by an unseen force]
Jessie: Uh, where's Pricklepants?
Rex: Aah! He was right here! What are we going to do? He was the only one who knew what the heck is going oooo...
Jessie: Uh, where's Potato Head?
Woody: Oh, no.
Mr. Pricklepants: Oh, it appears the monster has returned to claim one last victim.
Jessie: No, he's not. He's right over there.
Mr. Potato Head: [to his arm] Oh, I missed you, baby! We'll never be separated again.
[the car hits a bump, Mr. Potato Head's parts all fall off]
Mr. Potato Head: Aw, nuts.
Mr. Pricklepants: Group laughter. A sure sign that the worst is behind us.
Rex: So, it's the end?
Mr. Pricklepants: Yes. I believe they'd be running the credits just about now.
[Cut to end credits]
Mr. Pricklepants: And now we've reached the threshold. Every horror story has one. Once the heroes cross it, there's no turning back.
Buzz Lightyear: Rex, over here.
Woody: All we need to do is find a way down.
[Rex trips over the others and they fall down the grate]
Woody: Well, that did the trick.
Rex: Oops! Sorry!
Mr. Pricklepants: What started out as a simple horror story has become something more of a tragedy.
[Jessie has just met Combat Carl]
Combat Carl: Combat Carl's seen things. Horrible things. Combat Carl's learned you gotta keep movin'. Or else, they find you!
Jessie: [confused] Are *you* Combat Carl?
[Woody, Buzz and Jessie find Mr. Potato Head's arm, holding up its index finger]
Woody: It's Potato Head's arm. Looks like he's trying to tell us something.
Buzz Lightyear: It must be some kind of sign language.
Woody: Let's see... one... One word?
Buzz Lightyear: One syllable?
Woody: Once upon a time!
Buzz Lightyear: One plus one is two!
Jessie: [Whistles] Uh, guys? I think he's pointing up.
[She points up to an air duct]
Woody: Oh, up.
Buzz Lightyear: Yes, of course. Up.
