Oh, please, miss.

It was nothing. Oh, geez...

All in a day's work, ma'am.

Any cop woulda done the same.

Brain? Yech.

(LAUGHS)

Having another hero cop dream, Uncle John?

Every time I close my eyes. How was school?

Fine.

Don't forget...

Tomorrow's the day parents come and talk about their careers.

Oh. Well...

...I might have to work.

You want me to ask off?

Oh, no. That's okay.

Parents coming to school...

...whose idea was that anyway?

But if it's important to you, Penny...

Did the letter come?

Letter? Uh, gee, well...

What letter?

I don't...

Oh, yes.

They said two years as a security guard isn't enough experience to be a cop.

Uncle John...

...I'm sorry.

Me too.

Well, I can still secure and protect.

I just think I could do so much more good as a cop.

Hey... wait a minute. Tomorrow's your day off.

Oh, well... (SIGHS)

Look...

...I know that Nicole's dad is a lawyer...

...and Kim's dad is a dentist...

...and I just didn't want to embarrass you with your friends.

If I only had that badge.

Uncle John... it's not the badge, it's the heart behind it.

I'm very proud of you.

WOMAN:
Fingers crossed.

This chip is gonna make the whole Gadget project work.

Dad, concentrate. Try to move the foot. (SIGHING)

MAN:
All right. Kick the ball.

(SIGHS) Nothin'. I'm hungry.

Okay, all right. I'll go get us some dinner.

But then we keep going.

Yeah. Okay.

I'll call the guardhouse... so they don't search the deliver guy again.

Hello, Antonio's? Yeah...

...it's Brenda.

No, foot's still not moving.

Dad, keep thinking about that foot. Yep...

...the usual.

Mm-hmm.

Mm-hmm.

(HUMMING)

(GASPS)

Dad. Hmm? What?

(BRENDA STAMMERS)

Tap your foot again.

What? Huh.

Wh-What were you thinking about?

I was thinking about how much you remind me of your mother.

(SNICKERS)

Wait a second. Wait a second!

That's it! it's animated by will...

...not by thought.

By your heart, not your head!

(LAUGHING)

Come on, try it again. Do it again! All right.

(LAUGHS)

TOGETHER:
We did it! We moved the foot!

WOMAN:
Jack, queen...

JOHN:
Brenda Bradford.. she's so beautiful.

Wowser.

WOMAN:
Black eight on the red nine...

What? Oh, oh, nothin'.

I was just talkin' to myself.

Thelma, how do I look?

Like a geek from Kansas who became a security guard.

-(CAT MEOWING)

-MAN:
Brenda Bradford.

Well, good evening, young lady.

It's been a while. (CHUCKLES)

Four, three, two, one, zero.

(BRENDA HUMMING)

(WATCH BEEPS) Go.

Dr. Bradford. Yes?

Hi. Hi.

I borrowed a book from your dad. You did?

Power Learning Through Speed Study. Oh.

It took me forever to get through it.

But I really think it's gonna pay off, though.

I just applied to the Riverton police force.

Yeah? It's what I've always wanted to do.

Help people...

...that is.

Um, I gotta...

Dr. Bradford is out of the lab and we can go in.

Sikes, release the remote-control can.

(ELECTRONIC BEEPING)

Nice stars. Yeah? Which ones?

I just meant the whole...

All of 'em. Oh, I thought you meant a specific cluster.

I always take everything so literally.

So do I. Yeah?

I forgot my keys.

Oh. (CHUCKLES)

I'm... Okay. Night. Sorry. Good night, now.

(SIGHS) Well, I'll just stay here, then...

..and, uh, secure the parking lot.

(TIRE SQUEALING)

Concentrate, you twit!

Hey, that's guy's speeding.

Ten miles an hour in the parking lot, buddy!

No, no, no, no, straight ahead!

No, left! Bad cat.

Bad cat.

Left, Sikes, turn!

What was turn?

We have an intruder on the premises...

...a black van.

Where? Try that big hole in the wall!

(GASPS) Brenda.

Huh? Hello, Artemus.

I'll take that.

Oh, no, wait. No, no, no, no!

-Now, just a moment...

-(GASPING) Arrivederic, Proffesor.

Uh-oh! Someone's gonna blame the old lady.

Sniffy, let's go.

(SOBBING)

Dr. Bradford, I won't rest until I find whoever's responsible.

Justice will be served.

Brown, where are you going?

To catch the bad guys!

Stand back, Thelma! This isn't going to end well.

You're not on duty, Brown! I'm always on duty!

(SIGHS)

(LAUGHING)

(CHATTERING, YELLING)

(HORNS HONKING)

Oh, no. We're being chased by the hatchback squad.

(EVILY LAUGHS) Hey, I have a hatchback.

Ooh. Oh!

Stop the car, Sikes. I want to enjoy this.

(LAUGHING)

Oh, gosh! Oh!

(LAUGHS)

(LAUGHING)

Uh-oh

Yahoo

Attention! Driver of the wrecked limo...

...attached to the Yahoo! Billboard, this is Security Officer John Brown.

Please step out of the vehicle immediately...

...or...

...else.

Fine work, Mr. Security Guard, You got me.

Here. Have a victory cigar. No, thanks.

Remember... Smoking kills.

I don't smoke. Oh, really? You will now.

(EVILIY LAUGHING)

-JOHN:
Oh, boy.

-(EXPLOSION)

(SCREAMS)

(SHRIEKING IN AGONY) My hand!

Pardon me! Excuse me! Comin' through!
