Weird Science: Fanfiction
Season 6, Episode 3:
"The Day After - (Part 3 of 3)"
Michael Manasseri's voice-over: Last week, on Weird Science...
Fast Weird Science music is playing, like at the end of the episode'Strange Daze', while the following recap is shown.
Gary: (On the island) So how did I wind up here?!
Lisa: The original wish was suggested to the both of you, Wyatt and Gary! But it shouldn't have worked on you; my magic wasn't supposed to reach all the way to Nevarus-4.
Gary: It was Nevarus 3!
Lisa: My magic reached there? I guess the '3' does make a difference!
Lisa: Okay, Gary. Ready to go back to your wife to be the perfect honeymooners?
Lisa zaps Gary and he disappears. Lisa zaps a television set onto the table. Gary shows up on the screen, on a black and white show, wearing a loose vest and a flat hat.
Lisa: Uh oh
Wyatt: Honeymooners? As in the old black and white show?!
Lisa: They must have copyrighted the name! Those greedy producers!
Chett: I've got a plan!
Scampi: 'Pretty Girls come join the Genie Club'? (Sees a picture of Lisa underneath it.)
Chett: Let's set the Big Wheels in motion!
Lisa and Wyatt zap in, in black and white.
Unknown Voices: Hah- hah- hah- hah- hah- hah- hah!
Wyatt: What the heck was that?
Gary: Cheap laugh-track. You get used to it.
Gary: So you're telling me Tetra's in this loony-land as well?
Lisa: We'll just wait for her here, then I'll zap you both back.
Gary: So Lisa, what are you gonna do about the media homing in on your secret?
Wyatt: I say you wipe their memories. It's our only chance.
Lisa: Okay, but I'll test it on one kid first.
In Chett's office, Ted disappears in a blue-bolt zap.
Scampi: Great ghost of Farber!
Chett: Isn't that you, now?
Lisa: One Level-1 brain wipe, coming up!
Lisa zaps Ted's head.
Wyatt: Tell us what you can remember about Groundhog Day.
Ted: Farber Phil Then the aliens attacked.
Gary gulps in worry. Wyatt turns to Lisa, who also looks concerned
Ted: Then Donnelly here told us (turns his head to Lisa) that you were a magic genie.
Lisa, Gary, and Wyatt get nervous and look at each other, unable to hide their panic.
Fast music ends and recap fades out to black.

THE DAY AFTER (PART 3)
Meesum Abidi (J.L.)
Wyatt: Okay, Lisa, zap him again. This time
Lisa: Way ahead of you, Wyatt. Level-5 brain wipe for Groundhog Day, (raises 2 sizzling-blue hands) coming to a theatre near you! (Zaps Ted again in the head)
Gary takes a bite of his apple, then waits for Ted to recover before speaking.
Gary: Okay Ted, one more time. What do you remember about Groundhog Day?
Lisa, Gary, and Wyatt anxiously await his answer.
Ted: I remember fighting with Farber Phil, the aliens, and (turns to Lisa) you're a beautiful magic genie!
Lisa: Oh no. (Upset) It's not working
Ted: (Confidently at Lisa) By the way, we haven't been properly introduced. I'm Ted, (makes a cocky smile) your new man.
Lisa: (Frustrated) Shut up, Ted. You're not even a man-in-training.
Wyatt: Ouch! That's gotta hurt.
Gary: Well he better get ready for some more pain. Lisa, how about a level-10 wiper?
Wyatt: Lisa's right, Gary. It's not working. But why?
Lisa looks confused, then sees Gary raising the apple to his mouth. She immediately zaps the apple as Gary's about to bite.
Gary: Mwaah! (Removes the apple from his mouth to reveal it's been zapped into some kind of remote control-looking device) What's this?
Lisa: It's an emo-meter. It measures the emotional content in a brain. It might help.
Wyatt: How does it work?
Lisa: Just ask the patient to think of something, then point and press.
Wyatt takes the emo-meter from Gary's hand.
Wyatt: (Disgusted) Eeww, it's got slobber all over it!
Gary: Excuse me, (looks at Lisa) a minute ago it was my fruit!
Ted: (Laughs at Wyatt) Heh-heh! Once a dweeb
Wyatt: (Frowns and points the device at Ted) Does this thing have a 'Mute'?
Lisa: Okay Ted, tell us where you are. (Signals Wyatt)
Wyatt activates the device.
Ted: I'm stuck here with Donnelly and Wallace, (looks at Gary) who seems to be dressed like Ed Norton.
Lisa: What's the reading, Wyatt?
Wyatt: (Looks at level bar on the emo-meter) 30 percent.
Lisa: Now Ted, what about Groundhog Day?
Ted: Groundhog Day? (Smiles) What do you wanna know?
Gary: The reading's gone up to 120 percent? What does that mean?
Lisa: (Worried) It's what I feared. Any level over a hundred means the emotions from an event are so strong, they get embedded in the subconscious; and can't be wiped!
Wyatt: (Concerned) But Ted, and all of Farber, experienced the same fantastic events, yesterday!
Gary: (Tense) You don't mean
Lisa: Yes, (holds her head down, in her hands) the mind wipe won't work. We're gonna have to deal with this (looks up at Gary and Wyatt) without magic
The screen fades out for the episode's first break.
The screen fades in where it left off, with Lisa, Gary, and Wyatt all worrying.
Lisa: This is bad. By this time tomorrow, the whole world might be reading about me in the newspapers. Or worse, I could be on some sleazy tabloid show, (looks scared) like Entertainment Tonight!
Ted: (Still tied up) Let's just hope the pictures capture all your right features.
Lisa: (Condescending) Pictures, Ted? Still can't read?
Wyatt: Lisa, (motions to Ted) cant we get rid of this idiot?
Lisa: Well, at least we know we can wipe his mind of this test.
Lisa zaps Ted's brain with her left hand, then zaps him again with her right hand. Ted and the chair he was on, both disappear with a magic-blue bolt.
Gary: Now that we've taken care of the Ted formalities, can we find my wife? Shouldn't she have been here by now?
Lisa: (Ignores Gary) What am I going to do?
Wyatt: I I'm sure we can think of something if we just put our minds to it.
Lisa: (Full of self pity) I'll just have to live with everyone knowing about me and coming after me. (Insincerely hopeful) But, maybe it won't be too bad
Lisa has the following flashbacks from her past:
Phoebe Hale: (Mean) You're my genie, now.
One of the Steves: (Cocky) Resistance is futile, baby. You WILL be assimilated! Heh-heh-heh
Chett: (To Wyatt, Gary, and Lisa. Fast) You're my brother, you're his dirtbag friend, and you're a magic genie, nyahahahawhoohoohaha!
Lisa: Oh, who am I kidding?! (Starts blubbering and zaps up a box of tissues) It's over! (Applies a bunch of tissues to her eyes.)
Gary motions to Wyatt, who speaks up.
Wyatt: Lisa just one thing? A box (breaks down as well) for us too?
Lisa zaps them each a box, and all 3 are crying with faces full of tissues.
Lisa, Gary, and Wyatt: (Crying) Maaahhhaaaaa .
Cut to Farber High gymnasium, where the whole school is assembled. Chett speaks in a microphone in front, on the stage.
Chett: (With a serious air of responsibility) Students, faculty. We have come here, instead of attending final periods, so that we, as a school, can witness an historic event. Farber's own (with his childish smile) Genie Club! (Loud and obnoxious) Bring on the beauties, hah-hah-haaa!
The students and staff look on as a group of girls reluctantly walk single-file on stage toward Chett. All are wearing their normal school clothes.
Chett: (To first girl) So, Pam. Tell us how you're beauty has SHAPED you to be the perfect genie.
Pam: (Offended) This is nothing more than a beauty pageant! (To Chett) You perv! (Walks off stage)
Chett: (Not too unsettled) Uh yeah. (To girl #2) So Denise, (like his old self) what genie clothes will you be wearing? Um, other than swimsuits.
Denise: You creep! (Slaps Chett)
Chett: Hey, show some respect! (Not too convincing) I'm you're Principal.
Denise: Oh pardon me! (Sincerely) Mister Creep?
The whole assembly laughs at Chett, who stands in front all embarrassed. Guardian Scampi looks on unseen behind the stage curtain.
Scampi: (Disappointed) Oh, Chester, Chester, you haven't learned a thing. It appears my work with you is not yet complete
Cut back to Lisa, who is still crying, while Gary and Wyatt have stopped.
Wyatt: Come on, Lis.
Lisa continues, grabbing handful of tissues at a time. Wyatt notices then looks at his and Gary's empty tissue boxes.
Wyatt: (To Lisa) How many do you have left in there?
Lisa: (Trying to pause to talk) It it's an endless supply. (Continues crying)
Gary: What? If our boxes hadn't run out we coulda still been crying. Unfair!
Wyatt: (To Gary) Knock it off (to Lisa) Look. Maybe being known to all as a genie could be a good thing.
Gary: That's right, we could finally introduce you to our parents. (Realizes something. Whispers) How am I gonna tell them about my alien wife?
Wyatt: (To Lisa) Listen, a long time ago you taught us not to give in to fate as we know it; taught us we could be masters of our own destiny. Maybe you need to learn that, too.
Lisa: (Stops crying, still sad) But the bad authorities are all gonna try and get me.
Gary: We won't let them! Don't you see? Since you were created we've been a team. You're more than just our friend, you're family!
Lisa: (Almost happy) Family? Oh, that's so sweet. (Gets teary eyed) I think I'm gonna cry.
Gary and Wyatt: No!
Lisa: (Laughs) Hah, (wipes the last tears away) maybe you're right. Maybe I could get used to having some recognition from the rest of the world. It could even be fun.
Wyatt: (Makes a glory-fist) That's more like it!
Lisa: (Gets up) Who said I can't be in charge of my own life? By golly, I'm a magical genie; (smiles at Gary and Wyatt) and I'm family. (Steps in between and puts her arms around them) Come on. Let's go find my sister-in-law!
Blue-bolt energy surrounds them and they disappear, as the screen fades out for the episode's second break.
The screen fades in to an outside view of Farber High. The Final bell rings as the reporters await a group of exiting students.
Reporter#1: What can you tell us about the magic genie?
Denise: (Mad) There was never a genie. The whole thing was some stupid club thought up by our new pervert principal!
Reporter #2: Can you confirm the aliens?
Ricco: (Total geek) A real disappointment if you ask me. (Too serious) Didn't they learn anything from the Klingons? A more ritual approach at first contact would have been more stimulating.
Reporters #1 and #2 slowly look at each other, careful not to make any sudden moves.
Reporter #2: Right, Razzo.
Razzo looks offended, then leaves with the other kids. Both reporters look at each other and disappointedly shake their heads.
Reporter#1: (To #2, desperately) We've got to salvage some kind of story, here.
Cut to Lisa, Gary, and Wyatt, outside in a black and white setting, approaching a park.
Wyatt: These monotones are getting on my nerves! Can't you zap up another colour switch, Lis?
Lisa: Sorry, 'outside' doesn't have any walls. (Looks at her shirt) Too bad. Scooby's not very photogenic in black and white.
Gary: I don't get this. How are we going to find Tetrahydrozaline out here?
Wyatt: Just look for the nearest alien. She'll be dressed like the 'Alice' character.
Lisa: (Gives them a puzzled look) Is that what you two think? No, she'll be playing 'Ralph'.
Gary: (Outraged) Ralph?!! You turned my wife into Ralph?!!
Lisa: Yes. The wish brought both of you here as the 2 main characters. You're dressed as Norton, so she must be Ralph.
Wyatt: You knew this all along? Then why were we waiting all day for Ralph to come home, if he I mean, if she's at work driving a bus?!
Lisa: (Defensive) Well sorry, I didn't know! I've only seen 1 episode and it must have taken place on a weekend.
Gary: So what now? We just wait for a bus in the middle of nowhere?
Lisa: No, Brainiac. We check the bus terminal. (Points ahead) Over there.
Gary sees a row of parked buses and runs closer. He knocks on the closed door of the first bus.
Gary: (Calls to inside of bus) Tetra, are you in there? (Moves on to the next bus)
Lisa: Come on, Wyatt. Let's join in the fun! (Heads to join Gary)
Wyatt: (Sarcastically) Oh boy, buses for fun. Funny, I remember a time when we got our jollies playing the 'Spy World' VR fantasy.
Lisa: Lighten up, Wyatt. (Knocks on a bus door) Ralph! Or Tetra! Anybody inside?
Gary: (Knocks on another bus) Tetra?
Familiar female voice: Knock, knock!
Gary: (Smiles at the sound of his wife's voice) Who's there?
Lisa and Wyatt look on and give a chuckle.
Gary: (Excited) Boo who?
The bus door opens to reveal Tetrahydrozaline, wearing a bus driver's outfit.
Tetrahydrozaline: Don't cry. It's only an alien!
Gary: (Laughs) Hah-ha, I love that one! (Sees Lisa and Wyatt staring, unimpressed) Okay, okay, so it still needs work! It's only been a day.
Wyatt: Well, I guess this is it. We'll see you both in 2 weeks?
Gary: (Gets on the bus) That's about right. (To Lisa) You gonna be okay, Lis?
Lisa: Sure. I'll think of it as a new adventure.
Tetrahydrozaline: Is everything okay, Lisa?
Lisa: Gary can explain it on your trip. Next stop, Nevarus-4.
Wyatt, Gary, and Tetrahydrozaline: (Yell) 3!
Lisa: (Makes a playful smile) Just kidding!
Tetra turns on the ignition and the bus disappears in a blue-bolt flash. Lisa and Wyatt look relieved, then turn to each other and also disappear.
Cut to the front steps at Farber High, where the 2 remaining reporters are interviewing Chett.
Reporter#1: Principal Donnelly, you're taking credit for achieving peace with the so-called aliens?
Chett: Yes! Oh come on, (starts showing himself off) can you doubt the performance of an ex-marine in the call of duty?
Both reporters look on expressionless.
Chett: When those aliens saw me and surrendered, you could have tattooed the letters H, E, R, O on my forehead, capice?
Reporter #2: What was that first letter again? Z?
The reporters start laughing.
Scampi: (Shows up) Chester, you're not telling it the way it happened.
Chett: (To Scampi) Well who else is around? Somebody's got to lay dibs on the I mean, (looks at reporters) tell it the way it (desperate) happened?
Scampi: Chester, you haven't acted responsibly all day. I'm afraid it's time for you to learn a hard lesson.
Chett: (Getting nervous. To reporters) Don't don't listen to the old guy!
Scampi: They can't see me, only you can.
Chett: (Shocked) What?!!! (Starting to sweat) Now you tell me?!! Pops, why you
Scampi: (Stern) That's Guardian Scampi now! And I shall be addressed as such!
Chett: (Getting angry) Okay, SUCH! Let me tell you for a ghost, you are SUCH a
Reporter#1: (Smiles to Reporter#2) I think we've got our story.
Chett is yelling like a spaz, as the screen fades out for the episode's third break.
The screen fades in to an outside view of the Donnelly residence. Inside, Lisa and Wyatt are sitting on the couch, each holding a spoon in one hand. 2 small 'Chunky Munky' ice cream containers are zapped up; one in Lisa's free hand and one in Wyatt's.
Lisa: (Jolly) Cheers!
Lisa and Wyatt bump their ice cream containers.
Lisa: Here's to new beginnings. (Eats a spoonful)
Wyatt: To Gary and Tetra, back on their honeymoon. (Takes a mouthful)
Lisa: (Perky) And to me! (Swallows some ice cream) You know, I might get used to being a celebrity among you humans.
Wyatt: I suggest you start small. Why not come with me back to school tomorrow?
Lisa: (Scoops a spoonful) I'll eat to that!
Wyatt: You'll eat to anything!
Chett runs in the house and jumps on the couch, in between Lisa and Wyatt.
Chett: (To Wyatt) Butt-boy, you're back! (Turns to Lisa) Lisa, I just solved all your problems. I created a Farber genie club to follow you.
Lisa: (Excited) A genie club? (Smiles) For me?
Chett: It gets better. I, uh (Smiles confidently) brilliantly made sure it would be a dud! Making the whole school believe that you were just a publicity stunt!
Lisa: What?! (Stands up immediately, followed by the others)
Wyatt: (Shocked) And the reporters?
Chett: (Glib) Let's just say they won't be writing about Genie-liscious here, or the aliens. (Cocky) So did the big man on campus take care o' things, or what?!
Wyatt: (Ecstatic) The big man did it! Chett, this is fantastic!! Lisa's secret is safe with us, once again!!!
Wyatt high fives his brother, while Lisa remains expressionless.
Chett: (Turns to Lisa) Now, I'd say this Principal's brilliance is worth one pucker-of-a reward. (Closes his eyes, puckers his lips, and leans towards her)
Lisa: (Disappointed) Nice going, Booger-lips. And just when I thought I was finally gonna have fans! (Zaps a toilet plunger on Chett's face)
Chett: (Struggles sounds) Mmmfffmffmmm!!!
Wyatt quickly pulls the plunger off with all his might, making a SMACK sound.
Chett: (Dazed, losing his balance) Now that's what I call a reward (collapses onto couch)
Lisa chuckles lightly as Wyatt picks up his ice cream. They both smile at each other and bump containers.
Cut to closing credits. Weird Science music starts as a familiar scene is shown.
Chett: (Getting nervous. To reporters) Don't don't listen to the old guy! (Turns to face, apparently, nobody next to him. Shocked) What?!!! (Starting to sweat) Now you tell me?!! Pops, why you
Reporter #2: (To Reporter#1) Whos he talking to?
Chett: (Getting angry) Okay, SUCH! Let me tell you for a ghost, you are SUCH a
Reporter#1: (Smiles to Reporter#2) I think we've got our story.
Chett: (Yelling like a spaz at nobody to his side) Youre just jealous cause Im a better principal than you ever were, EX-sistant principal Scamp-Weed!!
Reporter#2 snaps a photo of him, capturing him in a most imbecilic look. The still picture of Chett turns to black and white as the screen zooms out to reveal its the front page photo of the Farber County Daily newspaper. The headline reads New Farber Principal is Insane.
Fade to black as the end title logos are displayed.
