MST3K is owned by my best friends Best Brains Where the Daisies Grow >>Rebecca:Have you noticed this story has nothing to do with daisies? >>Baloo: No I was too busy covering my eyes and screaming in pain. Disclaimer: Oh....TaleSpin is not my show Doo-dah Doo-dah It is Disney's don't cha know All the doo-dah day Please don't go and sue I have no money for you >>Kit: (sings) I spend my time reading bad fanfics! Please run me through! Thanks: To uh...aw heck everybody! Hi! This is for my loyal fans all one of them. >>Baloo:At least she's honest. >>Kit: Why is she thanking herself? Note: I know nothing about malaria...and I don't care. Please don't send me e-mails telling me stuff like..."that can't happen....that wouldn't happen...but doesn't that affect the...?" I don't wanna know I don't wanna see just get me to a planet with people I can relate to. >>Rebecca: Douglas Adams is going to sue for plagurism. >>Baloo: That whole thing can be summed up as "I'm a lazy idiot. Please don't hurt me." Down they flutter as they fall How I wish I could keep them all >>Baloo: Khan's throwing hundreds out his window? You were swept away before my eyes Unheeding to my deperate cries Oh please believe my heart was true And I did all I knew to do This spot is marked by cleansing tears Which will roll and break throughout the years Until the moment we meet again And though I've no way of telling when My heart can rest in your afterglow >>Kit: How many times do I have to tell you not to stand so close to the microwave? And our souls will stay where the daisies grow ******** Four days. It had been four days since Rebecca collasped. Four days, but for the occupants of Higher for Hire it might as well have been four years. Baloo had closed up Higher for Hire telling the customers there was a crisis. >>Rebecca: Actually he just told them to get lost. Most of their regular customers were sympathetic to Baloo's problem but a couple were being more difficult. >>Kit:(Baloo) I don't care if you need your insulin! "No you can't talk to the manager! >>Rebecca:(Baloo) I don't care if you wanted fries! Cause she's in the hospital! No we can't deliver your blueberries!....Cause we're closed buddy!....No! We....are...CLOSED!!!", Baloo yelled slamming down the receiver. The phone rang almost immediately. "Now you listen here Mr. Kendall, we're not delivering your blueberries, strawberries or huckleberries! >>Baloo: Hounds? What part of "no" don't you understand??", Baloo snarled into the phone. A timid voice responded. "Um...Mr. Baloo? It's Dr. Cadeever. I thought you'd like to know Rebecca is awake. Her fever is slightly lower then before...not much but...if you have anything to say to her, now would be a good time." >>Baloo:(opens his mouth) >>Rebecca: If you value your life you'll shut up now. Baloo realized what Dr. Cadeever was saying "now would be a good time" cause now may be the only time. His eyes filled with tears as he remembered the first time he had visited her... >>Kit: Oh no! It's a flashback scene! >>All: (start doing the Wayne's World thing with their hands) ********* Kit and Molly were both in school and Baloo had run out of things to occupy his mind. >>Rebecca:(Baloo) One plus one equals...um...er....well guess I'm go visit Becky. >>Baloo: Hilarious Boss Lady. He found himself at the hospital, looking at Rebecca's sleeping form. Dr. Cadeever stood by just in case anything went wrong. It did. >>Kit: A big meteor hit the Earth killing everyone instantly. The end. It had started so calmly and innocent. Dr. Cadeever had warned Baloo that with her fever Rebecca was likely to become delirious and say strange things. >>Baloo:(Rebecca) But I really liked The Gong Show! She was in and out of consciencness at that point. She said things...but it had started out so innocently. >>Rebecca:Mama? How come I couldn't have a kitten? All the other girls had one. Why Mother?? Why didn't you ever let me have a kitten?? Shut up Mother!!! >>Kit: Crack, whack, fade to black. "Baloo?", Rebecca's voice was barely a whisper. "I'm here Becky", Baloo replied his voice catching in his throat. "She can't hear you Mr. Baloo...or rather she can't acknowledge you", Dr. Cadeever informed him. Baloo ignored him and continued to listen. The doctor stood by quietly. >>Baloo:(Cadeever) Fine don't listen to me! Be a schumk! "Baloo...why did you have to leave?" >>Baloo: Um...cause visting hours were over? >>Rebecca:Wait I thought this was your first visit. Where are you leaving from? >>Baloo: Just close your eyes and think pleasent thoughts. "I'm right here Becky. I ain't going nowhere." "I never thought you hated me that much" Baloo felt as if he had been punched in the stomach, >>Kit: Cause he had. That doctor really hates being ignored. "Hate you?! Becky I don't hate you! I could never hate you! How could you think that? Becky?? Can you hear me? >>Rebecca: (Baloo,sings) Becky can you see me? I don't hate you!" "All you ever wanted was your plane" >>Baloo:Not true. Just ask Khan. Realization and guilt hit Baloo all at once. He staggered while Dr. Cadeever tried to hold him steady. "No, Becky. Keep the plane. Just come back to me Boss-lady" ********* Baloo shook his head. She was delirious. She hadn't known what she was saying. >>Kit: Nobody really liked The Gong Show Or did she? Part of Baloo, a part he would sooner ignore, told him she might have. After all, the only reason he had become her pilot was to get the Seaduck back. But that had been at the beginning. They had been through so much since then. >>Kit: So many arguements, and pirate attacks. >>(suddenly Don Karnage and his men burst into the theater) >>Don: It is I Don Karnage! And I have come to...(looks at the screen) It is a fanfic written by the Ricia type girl! Run for your lives men! (all run out of the theater screaming in horror) >>Kit: Well that was pointless. How could she think his plane was all that mattered? >>Rebecca: Especially when he had started calling her up at night and breathing heavy into the phone. How could she think he hated her? Baloo wouldn't be able to live with himself if he didn't try to tell Rebecca some degree of truth. >>Rebecca: Oh please! Baloo's never told me a degree of truth in his life! ********* Rebecca's eyes fluttered open. >>Baloo:...and flew away. She was surprised to find herself in a field. >>Kit:...of Dreams. 'Must be dreaming' >>Kit:Told ya. , she thought. A hand touched her shoulder. She turned around and gasped at the sight. A tall golden bear smiled sadly at her. Rebecca's hand flew up to her mouth while the other touched the cheek of her late husband. "Evan, is it you?", she whispered. She closed her eyes, "I don't want to have this dream, it's too painful.",she said. She felt a hand gently touch her face "It's not a dream Rebecca. Well not really. I'm real but everything else is a dream...well not everything...it's kind of hard to explain" >>Baloo: Not the sharpest pencil in the box was he? "Why are you here? Am I dead?" "No...you have some time" "How much" "I'm not going to lie to you darling, you don't have much." >>Rebecca: This mudane piece of dialogue brought to you by Ricia. He gestured with his hand. Suddenly they were standing in a hospital room. Rebecca looked at herself, >>Baloo:(dully) Wow. How profound. "I look awful.", she whispered. The door opened and she looked up. Baloo, Kit and Molly stood in the doorway looking lost. >>Kit(Baloo) I'm pretty sure this isn't the way to the cafeteria. Baloo picked up Molly and approached the bed. "Becky?", he said softly. Evan looked at Rebecca, "Becky? You never let me call you Becky. Should I be jealous?", he asked slightly amused. Rebecca motioned for him to be quiet. >>Baloo:(Rebecca) Shut up you annoying man! She stepped cautiously towards her friends. Molly and Kit were both crying. Baloo reached over and brushed the hair away from her face. She wanted to rush over and embrace them all and never let go. >>Rebecca: Which could get awkward after awhile >>Kit:(Baloo) Um..Becky? Could you let go? I need to use the bathroom. Evan looked at her with pity, "You're getting a chance here Rebecca. A chance I never got. It's time." Light flashed before Rebecca's eyes. >>Baloo: And the car hit her. "Baloo? Molly? Kit?" >>Kit: Well now that we've taken role call. "Boss-lady you're awake!", Baloo rushed over and grabbed her hand. "Mommy!", Molly cried jumping up besides her mother. >>Rebecca: And jarring loose the life support plug. >>Baloo:(Molly) Whoops. "How do you feel Ms. Cunningham?", Kit asked sitting at the foot of the bed. Rebecca stared at them. >>Baloo:(Rebecca) Who are these people? How could she tell them? Evan had said she didn't have much time. She sat up slightly and stroked her daughter's hair. She started to speak, her words sounded strangely calm, >>Rebecca: I've been taking lessons from Stephen Wright. "I may not have much time", she waved away the protestations she knew were coming. "I want a chance to say good-bye...to all of you" Molly, who had realized what her mother just said, cried out, "But I don't want you to go! I'll be all alone! Who will take care of me? Why do you have to go?" >>Baloo: The Incredible Annoying Molly! Rebecca held her daughter close, "Oh baby, I don't want to go either. I have to.", she pulled Molly up and looked her in the face, "But Mommy loves you very much and I'll always look after you. I'll be in every star, in every gust of wind...and every night when you fall asleep I'll send you sweet dreams. I promise" >>Kit: Gee Ms Cunningham, that's really..um... >>Rebecca: Lame? >>Kit: Yeah. "I still don't want you to go." >>Baloo:(Molly) I just found out you're worth practically nothing! You have to live more and give me a decent inheritence! "I know honey, but you won't be alone. You have Kit and Wildcat...and Baloo." >>Rebecca:...unfortunatly. , she looked up at the large bear, "You'll take good care of her, won't you Baloo?" "Of course Becky", he whispered picking up the small cub. Rebecca smiled at him. "Thank you." "For taking on Molly? Don't thank me Becky I'm happy to do it. She means alot to me" >>Kit(Molly) I'm still in the room y'know. "Not just for that. You were my strength, Baloo. All the times I didn't have enough of my own you were there. I don't think Higher for Hire would have made it without you...I don't think I would have made it without you." >>All:(shuffle in their chairs) >>Baloo:Er... >>Rebecca: Awkward moment. He stared at her, tears brimming in his eyes, "Becky...I...I'm sorry." "Sorry? For what?" He handed Molly to Kit and faced Rebecca, "For letting you think you weren't important to me. For taking you for granted! For...", his voice broke and he grabbed both her hands and held them tightly, "I'm your pilot Becky, no matter where I end up or who I work for I will always be your pilot...til...til...I join you." >>Rebecca: This is, of course cause he'll be too lazy to get another job, but it's the thought that counts. Rebecca was touched. "Oh...Baloo.", she breathed. "I think I needed to hear that more then anything." She reached up and touched his face. >>Baloo: Get the feeling Ricia lives in a deluded world all her own? A throat cleared next to her. She looked over and saw Kit trying not to cry. 'So brave', she thought. >>Kit: Wait. Wasn't I already crying before? "Come here", she said holding her arms open. Kit broke down and flung himself at her. >>Baloo: (Rebecca) No Kit! The plug! >>Rebecca: (Kit) Whoops. He sobbed into her shoulder while she rocked him back and forth. "Oh Kit, don't cry. You'll be okay angel. You just have to be strong" "I've been strong all my life. I don't want to be strong! I want my Mama Bear." She smiled at that, "Kit you are the most incredible person I've ever known. You have so much compassion and intelligence. You'll make some girl very lucky someday. I need you to be brave for Molly. I need you to keep Higher for Hire going...and keep Baloo away from the business stuff. You'll always be important to me. You're like my own son. Can you be brave for me?" >>Kit: I thought she said I was brave before! Doesn't Ricia edit these things? He sniffled and nodded. She stroked his face and handed him to Baloo. She looked at them. Her family and her friends...one in the same. She laid back down and smiled. "Alright Evan. I'm ready." And with that whispered phrase, Rebecca Cunningham was gone >>Rebecca: No, unfortunatly I'm still here. END OF PART THREE >>Rebecca: But not for long. Part Three is over!
