Mariah: Arrgh! She is a witch!!!
Leeta doesn't mean to overhear the conversation...but she listens in.
Mariah stamps her foot down "Witch!"
Lucca: Now I will not tolerate that kind of talk. I don't want to hear another word about Iris.
Mariah sighs "Ookay..for you mom.."
Lucca: Mariah, do you want to stay home for the entire fair?
Scientist: Miss Lucca, your friend Iris is waiting for you in the town square.
Mariah: Mother? I'm not a child!

Iris: Ladies and gentlemen, pay attention! Shall we explain, Lucca?
Townsman: Whispering and pugging ears Boom time.
Lucca: You go ahead, Iris. I'll check to make sure everything's okay one last time.
Leeta gets a small bit nervous.
Iris: Alright..this machine will help us finally have a clean power sorce for all of Truce!
Lucca walks around the machine and checks little pieces.
Iris: No more oil and coal power! Just pure clean energy!
Mariah: Yeah right..
Crowd: Wow! Can this be?
Mariah: Wish I thought of that...mumbles.
Iris: That's right!!
Victor: It's the answer to all our problems.
Leeta looks at Mariah, eyebrow raised.

Townsman: Yep... it's boom time.
Lucca: I think the world is ready for the Neo Mammon Machine. Iris glares at the men who said "Boom time"
Lucca: Throw the switch please, Iris!
Victor: I'd say some of this was your work too, Miss Lucca. You're the best....
Iris throws the switch.
Mariah: Here we go Leeta!
Leeta shakes a small bit.....
Sarah: Wow...it makes a nice noise...

Fritz: I wonder if there's any aftereffect.
Lady: See what? NOTHING'S HAPPENING!
Leeta grimaces, along with Mariah.
Iris: BUT LOOK!
Townsman: No boom?
Crowd:We don't see anything!
A ball of engergy is appearing at the top of the machine!
Townsman: Looks at Fritz and whispers Boom. Boom-boom-booom. Boom. Have a nice day. grins
Leeta nervously puts her hand to the handle of her Katana.
Lucca watches happily.
Iris: We did it!!
Townsman: Well somebody's gotta have the perspective around here! Sooner or later: BOOM!
Lucca glares at the townsman.
Victor: Wow, the machine's a success! Congratulations Madam Iris!
Sarah: Wait..is the energy supposed to be dark like that?
Lucca: Victor, I worked on it too.
Leeta starts to unsheath her katana....
Victor: You both should be put into the Truce Hall of Fame.
Mariah: Hmm...this doesn't feel right...
Leeta: I....don't like this.one bit Mariah..
Lucca watches the energy on top of the machine.
Mariah: Something..is...wrong here!
Victor: The machine....some sorta....energy backwash.....
Mariah: Mom! Shut the machine off!
Lucca: Iris, what's going wrong? Rushes to the machine.
Iris: Yawns I don't know...
Lucca: I can't turn it off!
Victor is killed by the oncoming energy.
Iris: Oh..what a pity.....Runs to the machine
Mariah Stop!! Runs to the machine.
Leeta leaps after Mariah....
Fritz: Lucca! What are you doing?
Lucca stops working. Well, time to face reality... If i can't turn it off, I can't turn it off.
Iris: Better look out Lucca.
Lucca: Nothing to be done about it.
Townsman: What did I tell you? Boom.
Lucca backs away from the machine.
Fritz: The machine's gonna blow.....run everyone!

Mariah: Mom! What gives?
Fritz: I think you're right... running with townsperson.
Townsman: To Fritz And you laughed at me!
Lucca: The machine didn't work, Mariah. That much is obvious.
The energy is growing larger. Leeta growls some more and with a glare, plunges her katana into the machine! Fritz: I laughed with you, Craig, not against.
Lucca whispers to Iris.
The backwash of energy knocks Leeta on her butt! "Ah!" Leeta sheaths her katana and runs after Mariah...
Sarah: C'mon! Pulls Leeta away.
Lucca: Hmm. That's a large ball of energy... I wonder what's going to happen. Iris giggles

Leeta now glares at Iris....
Lucca: And tell your friends to stop being such annoying brats. I'm trying to watch the Mammon Machine.
Scientist Near Lucca: Mrs. Nu, Mariah and the others must be led to safety.
Mariah: Mom..uh....did the machine steal your brain?
Another Scientist: I would it best that we run, Lucca. This dosn't look good.
Lucca: All right. Coming, Iris?

Wade: Norman, we'll both shut it off.
Mariah: Leeta..you better go too, I have to find my mom. Leeta backs off....... Mariah looks at Leeta and sighs.

Mariah: I would like you to come, but..I don't think you'd want to be friends with me...
Wade: Let's start with the ener....AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! Wade is killed by the energy backwash!
Location: Nu Mansion, 1030A.D.(And random fleeing villagers! Two for the price of one!! :D)

Lucca: Hello, Mariah.
Leeta silently follows Mariah to her house and then sits beneath a tree, waiting....
Lucca: Did you have fun today?
Mariah: Fun? FUN!?
Lucca blinks. Is there something wrong?
Mariah: Mom! Have you lost all touch with reality?!
Fritz: Where's the companion with Mariah? Is she around?
Mariah: PEOPLE DIED TODAY! Because of YOU!

Leeta creeps into the Nu household, sword at ready......
Mariah: It's still going, and..mom....you know..a long time ago...
Fritz: Let's head to the forest, trust me, the boom won't go as far as Truce.
Mariah: You told me about a machine called the Mammon machine..wasn't it evil?
Iris: Geeez...curious little girl, ain't ya?
Leeta sees some light..."Must be the lab or something...."
Craig: Okay, Fritz. I'll tell your dad that you said that when you're toast.
Mariah: Mom, if we don't shut this machine off in about Takes out her caculator and puches up some numbers 3 minutes, were all dead!

Lucca: Sorry Mariah, but it looks like there's no way to turn it off. We'll be safe on the island, though.
Mariah: What..about everyone else?

Mariah: How can you be so..coldhearted?!
Fritz: We're down near the Snail Shop now....let's move it Craig!

Lucca: Mariah! Watch your tone. Iris is a very important and respected scientist.
Mariah: Nothing my foot! You made her this way? What are you talking about?
Fritz: Ahh....safety at last.....let's go in here for now.
Lucca: You could learn a lot from her, if you'd keep quiet.
Mariah realizes she'll get punished for this, but she says it anyway" BULLSHIT!"
Lucca unleashes a Flame Toss on Mariah.
