Phase Three:

We apologize to the penguins

for overly harsh chewing outing,

but we've gotten our point across.

Phase Four:
Back to New York City.

- Yes!

- l like it!

All right, we take

these ventilation ducts

to the crawlspace above the casino

where we find the penguins.

l just need to figure out

which duct each of us should take.


Back with the bass

The jam is live in effect

and l don't waste time

On the mic with a dope rhyme

Jump to the rhythm

Jump, jump to the rhythm, jump...

Oh, no!

Take cover!

- Hi, honey.

- OK!

OK, OK. l got you. l got you, honey.

Now, they're not gonna let

animals on to the casino floor,

so expect some kind of disguise.

Look at that!

That is one ugly, mug-ugly lady!

That is roach-killing ugly!

That's not a lady.

That's the King of Versailles.

And that's not the King of Versailles.

That's the chimps.

And the chimps are like smoke.

And where there's smoke, there's fire.

And by fire, l mean the penguins!

King of Versailles wins again.

l say we let it ride.

Then we'll pick up the hippies

and fly back to New York in style.

Can we buy an Airbus A-380?

Solid gold, baby!

Sir! A solid gold plane

wouldn't be able to fly.

Kowalski, we'll be rich!

The rules of physics don't apply to us.

Let it ride!


OK. ln exactly two minutes and 1 7

seconds, the lemurs will cut the power.

- Now?

- No.

- OK?

- No.

- Now?

- No.

l drop down, grab the penguins.

You crank me up, and we are out of here.

Let me drop down!

l'll grab the penguins!

You don't have fingers, Marty.

- Now? Do it?

- No. No!

These are things a leader

has to think of.

Why should you be the leader?

Why not me?

'Cause l'm the phase tracker!

The king is letting it ride.

- How did l get phased out?

- You're part of a phase.
