T: Yeah, I could tell, would you like a mint?
SG: (invisos in to control room) Tansit, what are you doing? Is Metallica here?
T: Yeah, he's out there.
SG: "He"? You gave me Metallus!
T: Oh. Eh, no biggie.
SG: Yes, biggie! You screwed up the fe-... wait a minute. Who's this?
Kirk Hammett (KH): (points to Jim) That's the mighty Hetfield. (laughs)

SG: And you're... Metallica.
KH: Yes, sir, that is correct.
T: We were just having a lovely conversation about tuna...
SG: Well, that's nice. Now, would you give me the right guests so I can do my job. You know, talk show host?
T: Oh, sorry. (throws lever, sends Metallica to monitor on set)
SG: (invisos out)
T: You think you're so hot. I can twist you and punch you and hurt you so badly, I can...
SG: (invisos back in) I heard that! (invisos out)
T: I didn't say anything!
SG: (invisos to set)
KH: I, I tell you why you're so...
JH: Look at the pics, look at Space Ghost, man, when you talk.
KH: Oh, that.
SG: Well, looky there, Zorak, it's Metallica!
Z: Wow! Everybody limbo!
JH: Howdy, dude.
KH: Hey.
SG: Howdy, Metallica. Did Tansit treat you in a pleasant, courteous and professional manner?
JH: I, I hated him.
SG: Oh, you did?
JH: Yeah.
SG: What was the problem?
JH: He had an annoying little voice. I wanted to smash him, with my boots. (laughs)
SG: Well, uh, we're, we're in a transitional state...
T: (over intercom) Hey, everybody, listen up!
SG: Tansit!
T: Space Ghost, clean up on aisle eight. (laughs)

KH: Yes.
SG: Zorak, they're fans of yours!
Z: Well, that's what they expect!
SG: You're twisted.

You oughta like hang out and be in our band...
You're like the man...
And, uh, you are, 'cause you kick a lot of buttock...

(Title graphic and dramatic theme music; subtitle: "Act VI")
(Black screen for ten seconds)
(Title graphic and dramatic theme music; subtitle: "Act VII")
KH: Hey, could, (laughs) hey, could we smoke a cigar, or is it gonna mess with the oxygen in here?
SG: And just where pray tell did you get those grubby things? Did Tansit give them to you?
KH: (to Jim) You want a cigar?
JH: No, you go ahead, man.
SG: Mol- Er, Tansit!
T: What?
SG: Did you give the boys cigars?
T: Well... yes.
SG: And why did you do that?
T: Well, my daddy always said, "There's nothing like a good stogie to clean the pipes." Y'know?
SG: No, I don't know. Here I am, on this anti-smoking campaign, doing telethons, dressing as a clown and visiting children's hospitals, donating time and money out of my own tights, and then here you come, (doing Tansit imitation) "Here, fellas, smoke up!"
T: But... but I was just being hospitable.
SG: Hospitable? Hospitable? Tansit, you're fired!!
T: Oh, pooh!
SG: (invisos to control room)
T: St-st-stay away from me! I'm a villain!
SG: Tell me where Moltar is.
T: I don't know what you're talking about.
SG: Don't play dumb.
T: No! Please! Don't hit!
SG: Tell me where Moltar went, and I won't!
T: But I can't! Zorak told me not to tell.
Z: I did not!
T: He, he said he would get his swarm of angry henchmen...
Z: I did no such thing.
T: He said he was going to...
SG: Zorak doesn't have a swarm of henchmen.
T: He doesn't?!
Z: (evil laugh)
T: Oh, you liar you!
SG: You give me no choice, Tansit. I'm going to count to three.
T: But... but...
SG: One two three!
T: (crying) Okay, okay! Moltar's on a bus!
SG: A bus!?
T: To Jacksonville! That's all I know! (sobbing) Just, just don't hurt me! Don't hurt me! (sobs louder)
SG: Calm down, ya big baby!
T: Don't touch me!
SG: Zorak, take over the show. Don't escape, okay?
Z: Oh, I won't.
SG: I've got some heat to seek.
Z: What?
SG: Well, uh, you know what I'm talkin' about. (flies off)
Z: (to Tansit) Pansy!
(Title graphic and dramatic theme music; subtitle: "Act VIII")
(Lokar and Space Ghost in a kitchen)
Lokar (L): Space Ghost, it has come to my attention that I am pregnant!
SG: (stares back, with dramatic sting music)
(Title graphic and dramatic theme music; subtitle: "Act IX")
(Zorak is in Space Ghost's chair, talking to Metallica)
Z: Wanna go outside?
KH: (laughs) What would happen?
Z: You'd explode.
KH: Uh huh.
Z: Come on. It's fun.
(Title graphic and dramatic theme music; subtitle: "Epilogue")
(Moltar riding in a bus)
M: (singing) "Everybody's talkin' at me, I don't hear a word they're sayin', just..."
SG: (invisos in next to Moltar) Going somewhere, little Timmy?
M: (surprised) Waaa!
SG: It was the perfect plan, wasn't it?
M: Look, if you're trying to wear me down, so I'll confess something I didn't do, I won't do it.
SG: I just want the truth.
M: Hey listen, the truth is, I know nothing about the plane crash, or the whereabouts of Umberto Malzone!
SG: You think he's gonna protect you? You fool. You're useless to him now! Men like him don't hang, Moltar! Men like him watch their own neck.
M: You're kidding.
SG: I don't feel like kidding today, Moltar. I need to know. Are you going to leave me? (dramatic sting music)
M: Nah.
SG: Okay.
(Dramatic "wrap-up" music, similar to "Dragnet")
A: (Moltar still) After the Jacksonville incident, Moltar was returned to his post as director of the show, given a spanking, and told never to escape again. (Tansit still) Tansit was also swatted lightly across the fanny for his role in the Metallica debacle. (Space Ghost still) Space Ghost resumed his duties as host of the popular animated talk show, and was later to be spotted that very evening with gal pal Tori Spelling. (Passenger 12 still) Upon Space Ghost's arrival, Passenger 12 choked on a 'Cracklin Tatah'. Witnesses quoted him as saying, "Man, there's a 'Cracklin Tatah' choked in ma throat." (Zorak still) Zorak eventually led Metallica to the outer air lock, where members of the band were heard to say, "Shouldn't we put on a suit or something?" (Metallica still) Metallica exploded in deep space. (Metallus still) Mwam mwam mwam, mwam mwam mwam...
(Credits roll)
(Closing music and narrative)
A: The story you have just heard is true. The names have been changed to protect the innocent. Speaking of names, I have a kitty named Fluffy. Sometimes Fluffy scratches the sofa, and I say, "Down, Fluffy, down, or Fluffy get no din-din." Sometimes Fluffy urp in the corner. Fluffy knows better than that. Cats are fun. I like them.
