[ display of episode number and title screen ]

Announcer: Episode 42: Yo, Yo, Yo! How we gonna get outta this mine shaft, yo!

[ Keisha, Jo-Jessica, and Trey-J are at front of stage with Flip Flop and Girlie-t enter from the back of stage ]

Trey-J: Ok, team, what’s the repooort.

Girlie-t: Yo, these shafts are straight closed up.

Flip Flop: Word, we gonna run outta oxygen soon, yo.

Jo-Jessica: Yo, why’d we take a shortcut through a mineshaft in the first place?

[ Trey-J blows whistle ]

Trey-J: Negativity ain’t helpin’, Jo-Jessica. We need to get to Douglas High School and do our inspiration Hip-Hop dance or those kids’ll start using *druuugs*!

Keisha: Yo, we need to think up an idea-uh.

Trey-J: Well, I only know one way to solve a problem.

Girlie-t: Dance it out.

Trey-J: Tru-dat. K Smoove, drop a beat!

[ K Smoove begins playing music ]

Trey-J [ rapping ]: Yo, yo. We gotta think, yo. We gotta think about a problem and a solution. I don’t know if we..

[ cave begins to rumble and Keisha is hit on the head with a rock and falls down ]

Various: Oh no! Oh no!

Jo-Jessica: Yo, that rock hit Keisha on the head, yo. Then that stalagmite fell on her.

Girlie-t: That’s a stalagtite, Jo-Jessica. You gotta reckonize your sedimentary rock formations!

Jo-Jessica: Yo, who you calling a bitch, bitch?!

Girlie-t: I never said the word bitch, bitch!

[ Trey-J blows whistle ]

Trey-J: Yo! Twenty second TO. Keisha looks hurt bad, so we need to speed up our exit scratedgy. Let’s think.

Flip Flop: Yo, I think better when I’m busting a move, yo.

Trey-J: What!? K Smoove! Show us where out beat’s at!

[ K Smoove begins playing music and caves begin to rumble again and Jo-Jessica gets hit on the head with rock and falls down ]

Trey-J: Dance it out, Jo-Jessica, dance it off!

[ Jo-Jessica gets hit on the head with another rock ]

Trey-J: Yo, damn! It’s like these rocks know when we dancing, yo.

Girlie-t: Yo, I think it might be music and the dancing that’s shaking these rocks loose.

Trey-J: Foo! Dancing don’t cause problems – it *solves* ’em!

Flip Flop: We gonna straight up run out of food soon, yo.

Girlie-t: Yo, this cannot get any worse.

[ cave creatures rise from the back of the stage ]

Trey-J: Yooooo. On the getting worse front, I think we’ve got some company in the form of *cave creatures*!

Flip Flop: What do we do?

Trey-J: *What* do we *always* do?

Girlie-t: You think we dance it out?

Trey-J: What do you think?

Girlie-t: I was thinking maybe we should stay still. If these creatures live in this cave, they’ve probably have evolved to sense movement rather than seeing actual shapes. I think dancing may be the worst possible call, yo.

Trey-J: Flip Flop?

Flip Flop: Yo, I say we do how we do, yo.

Trey-J: K Smoove, jam it!

[ K Smoove begins playing music and cave creatures close in on Flip Flop surrounding him ]

Flip Flop: Oh yeah, how you like those moves, creatures. Ugh! Double up on you, hyah! Ugh! You getting served, you getting served, cave creatures.

[ cave creatures attack Flip Flop ]

Flip Flop: Oh, no! I’m getting served! I’m getting served!

[ cave creatures bring Flip Flop to the floor ]

Trey-J: Yo, it was like those creatures knew where he was!

Girlie-t: Yo, they did cause he was yelling at them!

Trey-J: Why you yelling at me? What are we going to do now?

Girlie-t: Yo, those cave creatures gave me an idea, yo.

Trey-J: For real?

[ cut to later with Hip Hop Kids Insert ]

Trey-J: Yo. I can’t believe we ate Keisha and Jo-Jessica, yo.

Girlie-T: You need to get past that. Cause they got ate. And that’s all there is.

Trey-J: Yo. On the real, real, real, real, real, real, real, real, real, real, real. I feel like dancing straight up worked against us this time, yo. What do you think, K Smoove?

[ K Smoove scratches a record a couple of times in reply. ]

Trey-J: If there was ever a day I wish you could talk, it would be today, K Smoove.

[ K Smoove scratches a record once in reply ]

Trey-J: Yo, look a tiny beam of light!

[ Trey-J points to crack in wall ]

Girlie-t: That’s way too small to fit through, yo.

Trey-J: What if we tried to *dance* through it.

Girlie-t: I like the way you think!

Trey-J: Yo!

Girlie-t: Boom! K Smoove!

[ K Smoove begins playing music and Trey-J begins to dance towards the crack ]

Trey-J: [ rapping ] Got to walk and up to it. Got to walk and up to it.

Announcer: Will the hip hop team dance through the hole? Will they face criminal charges for eating their teammates? This and more next time on “Hip Hip Kids”!
