Bit: Joel Departs
Episode: 1001- Soultaker
(Back on the bridge, Joel has a small
crate of auto parts.)
Crow: So uh, how'd it go, Joel?
Joel: Uh, it went
pretty good. I did have some trouble, though with the
digital switching module. It was all... greasy.
Tom: Yeah, Mike
here tried to patch it with strips of bacon.
Joel: Oh. Well
uh, I've updated all necessary systems. You shouldn't have
any problems for the next ten years or twenty-million miles,
whichever comes first. You know what, (Joel picks up a fuel
filter out of the crate) I did want to show you this fuel
filter though. You see all that gunk that's been building up
Mike: Eww, yuck.
That's gotta affect performance.
Joel: Yeah, it
sure does, it's a good thing I happened along here. Now if
you'll just sign this, I'll be on my way.
Mike: Okay, well
then. Thanks a lot. Yeah, sorry 'bout that. I don't think
about my fuel filter.
Joel: That's the
thing, people don't think about it. (Mike notices the red
Mike: Yeah. Oh,
you know what, Pearl's calling. Hang on.
Joel: Yeah, pay
me now, pay me later.
Mike: Yeah, I

Frank: Joel? Is that Joel Robinson?
Joel, Mike, Crow and
Tom:: TV's Frank?
Mike: Hey, look
at that, it's Frank.
Joel: Frank! How

Frank: Pretty good uh, been soul stealing. In fact...
You're on my list. I'm going to need your soul. You know,
when...when you get a minute.
Crow: Yuh-oh, you'd better get going there, Joel.
Mike: Hey, hey.
What about us? Can you take us with you?
Joel: You know, I
don't really want to.
Joel: Well, I'll
tell you why. Because the years I spent here on the
Satellite of Love were the best damn years of my life, and I
wouldn't want you mugs to miss a minute of it!
really. It made a man out of me, and maybe, just maybe, if
you're lucky, it'll make a man out of you, too!
Mike: Yeah! Yeah,
that's it! You get goin' and I'll stay here, and I'll get
busy being a man!
right. I knew there was something I liked about you, Mike.
And you two 'Bots... You just keep 'em flying and remember
Joel! So long, Joel! Bye-bye! Bye! Go knock yourself
Mike: Yeah. Yeah.
Alright, so long! Thanks! Thanks! Right out there, yeah.
remember you, Joel! There goes Joel Robinson, a man!
Crow: Yeah! (Joel
opens the bridge door and leaves.)
Mike: Wow man, think about it. A real man like that
allowing me to find my own way!
right. Hey, press that button like a man, Mike.
Crow: Yeah, give
it a try.
Mike: Okay. (Mike
pushes the button like a "real man")
Tom: What a
Frank: Oh man, I'm gonna catch Hell from my boss. I
haven't brought back any souls yet.
Pearl: Oh, Frank.
Please, take my soul. I'm not going to be using it.
Frank: Oh no. I
couldn't. Really, I couldn't.
Pearl: Oh, yeah?
Well hang on. Hey Brain Guy! (Brain Guy sneaks up)
Pearl: Ah! Frank
here is going to be stealing your soul.
Observer: Oh, I'm
sorry. You're barking up the wrong albino. I'm just a brain.
100 percent soul-free. Sorry.
Bobo: Would um,
someone maybe, um... like to, uh, steal my soul?
Are you sure it's okay?
Bobo: Oh, this
old soul? Please, do me the favor of stealing it.
There it goes. It's slipping out now. . (Bobo's soul comes
out in the shape of a ring) There. You'll be top soul
stealer in no time.
Frank: I know!
Let's play ring toss... with your soul! Yay! (Frank and Bobo
toss the soul back and forth.)
Pearl: I knew
those two would get along.
