NARRATOR: Twenty years ago we sent our Cascade Police, Major Crimes department into the streets of Cascade to document their journey. They disappeared without a trace. A year ago, this video (which wasnt invented at the time, but they somehow managed to make due) was found.
fade out into
the camera is on, and being fussed over by members Jim, Blair, Rafe, Brown, and, of course, Simon. the picture is shaky and unfocused, but the viewers are able to pick out the Cascade Police sign dimly lit neon green in the background
Blair: OK, OK! Enough of this already. Im the cutest, Ill handle the camera.
the camera is jarred terribly, and the sky is spinning around in a dizzying arch before coming to rest at what is apparently Blairs view of the world. the outlook is noticeably more rosy than it was before. the boys come into view, all wearing uniforms looking suspiciously like stolen Boy Scout outfits freshly hung out to dry on the clothesline.
Simon: All right, are we all set, then?
Rafe: All set, boss.
Jim: OK, guys. Lets move out!
the camera begins to bounce with Blairs footsteps. the people present day watching the movie throw up from motion sickness. the boys strut down the streets of Cascade, talking as they go.
Brown: And this building was constructed in Um, when Blair?
Jim: Thats right folks. Its a pretty old building. Lots of people like old buildings. Some people even study old buildings. But we dont, and were bored, so were moving on.
the boys head to the more *cough* adult section of Cascade.
Jim: OK! Now were going to have some fun!
Boys: *sigh grumble*
Blair: Guys, I know this video isnt meant for kids, but it is only PG-13. Dont you think wed better use a little discernment?
all the lads look at their shoes
Blair: Besides, were wearing Boy Scout uniforms
all newsies solemnly make the Boy Scout sign
Jim: Thanks for setting us straight, Blair.
Blair: Was that sarcasm, Jim?
Jim: You know I never practice anything I cant spell, Chief.
Blair: Funny, you somehow manage to l-i-v-e.
Jim looks perplexed, and is working hard on figuring out how this is an insult
Rafe: Lets get moving guys, these uniforms are terribly revealing.
Simon: Im with him on that one. Save your tiff for later.
Brown: Did you guys hear something?
all the boys break out into hysterical laughter.
Rafe: Ha ha!
wiping tears from his eyes
Rafe: Thats a good one, H!
Brown: No, you guys, I really hear something!
Jim: Youd think this was a horror flick or something!
bachs fugue in F major plays
our boys are now hanging around the park, eating outrageously expensive ice cream
Blair: I should have gone with strawberry.
Rafe: Ew I feel sick.
Simon: Um, Rafe, maybe youd better stand over there.
Blair: Did anyone see that?
the lads break out into laughter
suddenly, Jim gasps
Jim: Look at this, everyone!
he picks up a box from the ground. the boys all crowd around him
Jim: Its a severed Beanie Baby ©!
Simon: Are Beanie Babies invented yet?
all boys look at Blair
Blair: Why do you guys always ask me?!
Major Crimes Youths: Aauuuuuuuuuuuggggh!
Jim: Great Scott! Its
Boys: The Cascade Witch!
Jasmine: Aladdin? Where are you, you yellow-bellied coward?
Aladdin: You guys gotta help me! She wont leave me alone!
the camera, badly shaking, focuses on Jasmine, who fixes a death-ray glare on our boys. she advances
Major Crimes Youths and Aladdin: Aauuuuuuuuuuugghh!
the camera falls to the ground and the screen goes black
Jim runs by, Jasmine following, screaming after him. Jim wears a look of total panic
