Prince Kenshin,

you must turn back.

Return with us at once.


Give up your weapon.

Do not harm him.

Take him prisoner.

No! You will have to

kill me first.

Take him to the castle.


Beat it.

All right.

Rock 'n' roll!

Turtle tantrum.

Hold it.

Oh, Raph, come on.

What's going on, Raph?


Have patience, my son.

What are we doing this for?

Day after day, practicing,

killing ourselves, for what?

Oh, Raphael.

Nobody appreciates us.

Nobody sees us.

Nobody even knows

we're alive down here!

Hey, guys.

How's it going?

Hi. Fine.

Good hair day?

Brought you some stuff.

I love stuff.



Let's see what's in the bags.

OK, here are the keys

to my apartment...

somewhere... stop peeking!

No peeking.

I'm not peeking.

I'm spelunking for pork rinds.

Don't lose them.

God, I need this vacation.

Take us with you, April.

Come on, take us with you.

Sorry, sorry,

sorry, sorry, guys.

My suitcases are very full.

Oh, too bad.

Hey, I didn't forget

about you guys.

I bought a lot of fun stuff

at the flea market for you.

All right!

OK, where's Raph?

He's in another funk.


A major funk.

Maybe this'll cheer him up.

Hey, smooth.

Pretty cool, huh?

Nifty lid!

All right, this is for Mikey.

All righty.

Hey, it's a lampshade.

Let's see. What else

do we have here?

And for Leonardo,

there you go.

- And Donatello...

- Japanese swords!

This'll keep you

busy while I'm gone.


All right, and for Splinter...

where is he anyway?

He's doing rat stuff.

Found this...

actually, I don't

really know what it is.

Some kind of a weird

antique or something.

I think it's Japanese.

Elvis Presley in "Blue Hawaii."

You're so cute.

A super androdyne

radio with triode tubes!


Hey, what's that, April?

Some kind of weird

Japanese antique...

egg timer.

Kenshin, I forbid you

to leave the castle.

You have disgraced me.

It is you who have

disgraced me, Father...

with your unjust war.


Walker, you're alive.

Yes, I'd say that

was a fair assumption.

Survived a shipwreck, built

some new ones, and, well...

here I am, hungry again.


Move along, lads.

Your sentries, I believe.

Must be a great comfort

to know...

how well-protected

you are, Lord Norinaga.

Kenshin, inside!


Children are such

a pest, aren't they?

Especially when they

side with the enemy.

Oh, dear. Damn nuisance.

I just keep birds now.

Little finches.

Shut up, Niles.

Right. I have three ships

sitting in your harbor...

Ioaded down with powder

and muskets...

absolutely guaranteed

to win your ambitious war.


"Open wide the gates of time."

Uh... guys?


What's going on?

Wait a second here.

Lay low!

Cover your face!

Feels like tornado weather!

No way!

She's a man!


You have that effect on people,

don't you, master?

Out cold.

Wakey, wakey. Wake up.

Hey, guys, these clothes

look familiar to you?

Wake up. Wake up...


James Dean dude.

I think he's coming around.


Cappa? Cappuccino?

Nah, it makes me hyper.

What's a kappa?

Ancient Japanese demon.

Some were good,

and some were very bad.


Hey, he speaks English!

Where's he from anyways?

Well, judging from sword,

I'd say feudal Japan.

That explains why

he speaks our language.

See, England started

trading with Japan...

All right, already.

How'd you get in April's pants?

I want to know what

happened to April.

It seems the scepter

has magic powers...

and somehow transported

them both through time.

Hold on, dudes.

If April's back in feudal Japan,
