Two kids in the background are on a see-saw made of bombs.

Agnes runs into the middle of the yard and points offscreen.


Oh no! A dragon is approaching!

All of the kids turn and see KYLE dressed as a dragon. He

GRUMBLES and then they SCREAM and huddle around Agnes. Then

Margo enters wearing a SUIT OF ARMOR and wielding a SWORD.


Fear not, for here come the gallant

knights to save us!

She gestures to a group of minions wearing tiny suits of

armor and wielding various MEDIEVAL WEAPONS. The Kids CHEER

as the minions charge toward Kyle. One accidentally hits

another with his sword. A fight ensues in which they use the

medieval weapons on each other.

One minion pounds another with a MACE. One Minion wanders off

from the fight with his helmet on backwards, wildly swinging

his mace.

Across the yard, Gru is busy grilling burgers and talking on

the phone. Not happy.


No, no, no! What do you mean she’s

not coming?! I have a backyard

full of these little girls who are

counting on a visit from a fairy


The mace-swinging Minion walks by and accidently, repeatedly

hits Gru with the mace in the shin.


Ah! Hurts! Ah! Stop it!

Gru kicks the minion’s helmet and chases him off with a

spatula, sending him towards the party swinging his mace.

Gru SIGHS and returns to the call.



Listen! I don’t want a refund! I

want a fairy princess... please!

Please, I am begging you.


You know what? I hope that you can

sleep at night, you crusher of

little girls’ dreams!!!

Gru hits the phone with his spatula and hangs up. Turns and

sees Agnes standing there.
