TranscriptEdit

(Start at the law offices)

Senior Partner: Franklin, I've had it up to here with you and your partner's unconventional antics. We have an important case and he isn't even here, so I'm replacing him!

Jared Franklin: You can't do that! Bash is an awesome lawyer with incredible savvy and limitless knowledge and--

Senior: Too late! From now on, it's Franklin...

BUST!

Crash Bandicoot: ...and Crash!

Jared: Eh, as long as it rhymes.

(Title card: Franklin & Crash)

Jared: It will be a tough case, but when it comes to lawsuits, Franklin & Crash Bandicoot are the best in the business!

The Prince of All Cosmos: Yeeeaaah... But what about video game lawsuits? As the Prince of All Cosmos, everyone is accusing me of rolling up their possessions to make my katamari!

(Zoom to Peter Bash in the katamari)

Peter Bash: This is why I'm not in this sketch?!

Crash: No worries! When it comes to video game lawsuits, we are also the best in the business!

Jared: Right! Now if you could just explain to me what a katamari is.

Crash: No need! This is an unconventional case, and we are unconventional lawyers! I mean, look at me! I'm not wearing a shirt!

Jared: And I live with a cat!

Garfield: Sure, laugh. But those movies gross more than you think.

(Cut to courthouse)

POUND! POUND! POUND! POUND! POUND!

Crash: Well, let's see who the prosecution is, and-- Oh, no.

The Prince: What's wrong?

Jared: The lawyer for the prosecution has it in for us. He thinks that Crash stole his shtick!

BUST!

Sonic the Hedgehog: Well hello, Crash! Having fun running through levels and spinning through boxes? I love your sneakers and gloves.

Crash: I added shorts!

(POUND! POUND! POUND! POUND! POUND!)

Sonic: Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I will prove that the Prince is a menace to society! I'd like to present Exhibit A!

(ZZZZZ!)

Princess Peach: Help me!

Mario: Give me back the princess-a!

Bowser: NEVER!

Princess Peach: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!

Mario: So-a, you wanna grab a soda?

Bowser: Sure.

(ZZZZZ!)

Crash: Objection: that could've been anyone's katamari.

The Prince: Oh no, that was mine!

(SLAP! SLAP!)

Sonic: And finally, I'd like to show you Exhibit B!

(ZZZZZ!)

Rugby Announcer: Now, if you ever had a turdunken, it's a fish inside of an egg with a chicken on top filled with mac and cheese, it's fabulous!

(Whistle blows)

Rugby Players: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!

(ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!)

(POUND! POUND! POUND! POUND!)

Judge: I've heard enough, Franklin & Crash! And not even one of your unconventional stunts will get your client out of this one!

Crash: Oh, really?

(Roof rips off)

Courthouse Attendants: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!

Judge: The King of All Cosmos?!

The Prince: Hi, dad!

(Courthouse gets lifted up into outer space)

Judge: So unconventional.

The King of All Cosmos: The Prince is innocent! You see, I accidentally destroyed all the stars in the sky, so I asked my son to grow a katamari in order to replace them all. And now, we are but one star away! See?

(Courthouse gets thrown into universal void)

Courthouse Attendants: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!

(Twinkle!)

Jared: Yeesh. Sometimes lawyers do some ugly things, but this... takes the cake. Oh, well. I'm hungry. Wanna split some katamari?

Crash: I think you mean calamari.

Jared: Whatever.

(End segment)
