The Adventure Club



I believe you have something

of mine, Robert.

It belongs to neither

of us, Bruno.

Humans shouldn't

possess this kind of power.

With that, I could have everything

I've ever wanted for eternity.

I don't want to live in a world where

you can get everything you want.

Give me what's mine.

Sorry, old friend.

This is for your own good.

- Did you get the batteries?

- Sure did.

Are you sure this is gonna work?

Absolutely. Sandy got all the

instructions off the Internet. Right?

I kinda got all of them off the Internet.

I improvised a little.

A homemade time machine

that we found on the Internet.

What could possibly go wrong?

In the miraculous off chance that this

actually works, where should we send him?

What about back

to prehistoric times?

You like dinosaurs, right?

Sure, I like dinosaurs. It doesn't mean I

want to be walking around amongst them.

Come to think of it, I'd like to

be transported back to last week

when I agreed to take part

in this stupid experiment.

Come on, you guys.

We're the adventure club.

This could be

the ultimate adventure.

Okay, here goes.

Wait! Did you change the date?

Oh, no!

If I get eaten by a t-Rex, I'm gonna

be really, really mad at you guys!

Did it work?


I guess we can chalk up another

bust for the adventure club.

What a surprise.

I really had high hopes

for this one, guys.

Maybe we should give up on this

whole adventure club thing.

Yeah, maybe we should

try something else.

Come on, you guys.

We can't give up.

There's got to be adventures

out there for us to have.

Really? Like the time you tried

to convince us that there's

a loch ness monster

living in the lake?

Or that there was pirate treasure

buried under the school playground?

I think it's time

to give up the dream.

Plus I'm out of pez,

my favorite.

Worst day ever.

At least I have Penelope.

It's really disturbing that you

call your jalopy Penelope.

She's not a jalopy.

She's a go-kart.

And once I'm finished working

on her, she'll be beautiful.

Hey, you okay?

It's getting late.

I better go home.

I do understand your position, but I

don't know if you understand mine.

Look, if our funding

continues to be cut,

we won't have any money

to bring any new exhibits in,

and it will be impossible for the

science museum to turn a profit.

It's a vicious cycle.


Yes, I understand.

Okay. Thank you. Bye-bye.

- Well, that didn't sound good.

- No.

Hey, sweetheart.

Where have you been?

Just hanging out.

Hey, Martin.

Hey, buddy.

Everything okay, mom?

Oh, yeah, just some

science museum stuff.

You ready for some dinner?

Martin made lasagna.

Yeah, and I made it,

not your mom.

What is that supposed to mean?

Nothing, dear.

No, thanks.

Are you sure?

It's not just any lasagna.

It's Mac-and-cheese lasagna.

I'm not hungry.

I'll be right back.

Hey, sweetie.

Are you okay?

Can I see?

Aw. I haven't seen

that in a long time.


Do you think grandpa really

went on all those adventures?

Oh, yeah.

He was an archaeologist, sweetheart.

He traveled all over the world.

I miss how he'd give me a wet

Willy every time I'd see him.

You used to hate

those wet willies.

I miss them now.

I know.

You were his favorite.

He used to always say that one of

his most favorite days, ever...

Was the day that you were born.

Do you think I could

ever be like him?

Oh, Ricky,

you already are like him.

I mean, like, going on

adventures and stuff.

Do you remember what granddad

used to always say...

That the key to adventure

is always right in front of you.

Is the science museum

going to close down?

I don't know...

But it doesn't look good.

We need to come up with a lot of

money before the end of the month.

Grandpa would be sad to hear that.

He was the founder of that place.

Yes, he was.

But you know what?

I don't want you to worry...

Because I have a town hall

meeting this week,

and I'm gonna do my very best to convince

the municipality to do what's right.

So, I need to you to say a wish

for your dear old mama, okay?

'Cause I'm gonna need it.

It's time for you

to go to bed now.

I want you to come

brush your teeth, okay?


I'm proud of you.

The key...

The key to adventure

is right in front of me.

Who's there?

Ricky, you scared me.

I thought you were a burglar.

What are you doing up here?

Uh, nothing.

Just couldn't sleep.


Well... good night.

Clubhouse meeting,

first thing tomorrow.


Copy that.

I'm telling you, guys,

this is it.

This is the one we've

been waiting for.

Like we haven't

heard that before.

- No, this time it's different.

- Every time you say it's different.

But this time it really is.

You say that every time, too.

I'm sorry, Ricky, but...

I'm gonna have to take bill's side

on this one. Adventure club rules.

You have to have a majority.

Just hear me out.

I found this hidden

in my grandpa's old desk.

Why would he go through the trouble of hiding

this if it wasn't something really special?

And I'm the one who found it.

Don't you see?

It's like he left it for me.

I've got a good feeling

about this one, guys.

It's not that we don't

want to believe you, but...

We don't believe you.

Please, guys...

Just give me this one,

at least for this one last time.

And if this turns

out to be a bust...

I promise...

I'll let it go...



I wanna see the map.

You guys are the best.

Well, this is a map, all right.

But it's not of streets.

It looks like some kind of old-fashioned

blueprints for a building.

How do we find out

what building this is from?

Hey, look. The architect's

name is written here.

Shayne Putzlocher?

That's a mouthful.

I've got an idea.

This is way

too much like school.

Take a seat.

I'll be right back.

Putzlocher... Putzlocher...

Putzlocher... ah, Putzlocher.

Shayne Putzlocher, architect.

Uh, "by 1964, the power corporation

purchased the powerhouse..."

uh... la, la, la...

Ah. "The legacy of the powerhouse

building was preserved as..."

"the science museum!"

Our science museum,

right here in town.

Of course. My grandpa was the key

founder of the science museum.

That probably means whatever this

key unlocks is in that building.

And these blueprints

are for the science museum.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa,

whoa, whoa! Whoa, easy there, kids.

Did you not see the sign

that says, "no run-ning".

Where do you think you are,

an amusement park?

Don't answer that, son.

That's a rhetorical question.

You are in a museum of science,

a hallowed institution

for learned people.

You have to respect

this establishment.

Wow. That's a lot of

equipment you got there.

I'm in security, son.

You always gotta be prepared.

- You're insecure?

- What?

- No.

- Curtis...

It's me, Ricky.

You remember?

My mom works here.

Oh, I see.

You're one of those.

One of...

One of those kids who thinks

they get a free pass in life.

That's your generation.

My generation had to grow up
