Michael "Goob" Yagoobian: Then, um, I didn't choose that one because it was gonna give me pimples so I choosed, um, another scary one .
Then I got beat up. Afterwards, Coach took me aside and told me to let it go. Everyone will tell you to let it go and move on, but don't. Instead, let it fester and boil inside of you. Take these feelings and lock them away. Let them fuel your actions. Let hate be your ally, and you will be capable of wonderfully horrid things.
Heed my words, Goob. Don't let it go. Where is that boy? Separate and look for clues. Look what I found! Now, what did you find? That plus my stick must mean I don't even know what I'm doing. I mean, this stuff is way too advanced for me. And what if I can't fix this? Why do you keep saying that?
And don't just say, "Keep moving forward. Why would his motto be "keep moving forward"? It's what he does. What's that supposed to mean?
Robinson Industries, the world's leading scientific-research-and-design factory.
My dad runs the company. They mass produce his inventions. His motto, "Keep moving forward. Carl, the time machine, the travel tubes. Your dad invented the time machine? Five years ago, Dad wakes up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat. He wants to build a time machine, so he starts working. We're talking scale models. Dark day at the Robinson house. Prototypes two and three, not much better.
Number six, 58,and they all end the same way. But he doesn't give up. Dude, I can't take you seriously in that hat. He keeps working and working until finally he gets it, the first working time machine. Then he keeps working and working until finally he gets it again, the second working time machine. I'm assuming that's a joke. I'm ignoring you for time reasons. This, my friend, is merely a model because, unfortunately, time machine number two is in the hands of the Bowler Hat Guy.
Now, are you ready to start working? I think that's it. I knew you could. Nice work, my friend. Well, you know what they say! If you aren't up here in five minutes, I'm gonna come down and get you! We'd better get up there. Let's get that boy! But I want to look, too. I didn't even know you could do that.
Let's take her out for a spin. Now, to lure him out of the house. I'll blow it up! No, that won't work. Then he'll be dead. I'll turn him into a duck! Yes, it's so evil! I don't know how to do that. I don't really need a duck. This may be harder than I thought. No, no, no, no, ring this doorbell. That doorbell will give you a rash. I'm two for two, man.
If they don't do it on purpose, it doesn't count. Read your rule book. You can take your rule book and shove it right I don't believe in fretting or grieving Why mess around with strife? Guess I was cut out To step out and strut out Give me the simple life Ladies and gentlemen, dinner is served. I want a sloppy joe! Oh, Billie, could you please pass the gravy? Coming to you, big girl. Reminds me of the time my meatball pizza staved off civil war on the black moon of Keward.
Where's my sloppy joe? Thank you for the gravy, Aunt Billie. Why is the kid still here?

Any of this ring a bell? Science fair, Memory Scanner, a time stream that needs fixing?
He's just having a little confidence issue. I've got it under control. So, Lewis, are you in Wilbur's class? Well, yes and no. Lewis is a new transfer student. I think you mean North Montana. Hasn't been called Canada in years. Do you know Sam Gundersen? Then we can see if he has the family cowlick. He can't, because he's got bad hat-hair. A North Montana man doesn't care about hat-hair. Let's see the cowlick! All right, everyone, hold your horses.
Lewis, do you mind? I'm afraid this isn't gonna stop otherwise. Now, don't be shy. Surely, that is not the best you can do. Your skills are strong, but not strong enough. Your words do not threaten me, brother. Now the real battle begins. Your meatballs are useless against me. Then perhaps it's time for spicy Italian sausage! Is dinner like this every night?
No, yesterday, we had meatloaf. Okay, gang, time for the second course. And what goes better with meatballs than P. Hey, that's just like Is everything all right? We're just experiencing bugs. Just what the doctor ordered. My friend Lewis is an inventor. He can fix it.
Wilbur, you know I can't. Give it a try. You don't understand what's at stake here. Uncle Joe's seen the toast! We're past the point of no return! If he doesn't get P. You would really be helping us out, Lewis. One dragonfly on the rocks, please, Mr Barkeep.
Hey, hey, Frankie, baby, you gotta tell us one of your jokes. How about that one with the bullfrog? All right, you bozos. Have to get that boy out of the house. So I turn to the bullfrog, and you know what I says? Talking frogs with their own little outdoor bar, and so smartly dressed! I says, "Hey, not with my umbrella, you don't. That's a good buzz. You are now under my control. I am now under your control.
Did you just say, "Excellent," because I said, "Excellent"? I've recalibrated the dispensing conduits and aligned the ejection mechanism and There he is, that repulsive, half-witted fool! Now, my slave, seize the boy. Bring him to me. Did you not hear what I said, you idiot? Grab the boy and bring him! Well, it's just that there's a million people over there, and I have little arms.
I'm just not so sure how well this plan was thought through. Okay, that should do it. Let her rip, Lewis! Uncle Joe can't hold on much longer. Is it gonna work? From failing, you learn. From success, not so much. If I gave up every time I failed, I never would have made the meatball cannon. I never would have made my fireproof pants. Still working out the kinks.
Like my husband always says Keep moving Keep moving Stop Okay, talking frog, not a good minion. Need another henchman, something large, not too bright. Something that won't talk back. What is he still doing here? Get rid of him. Hey, what are you doing? Get your lousy mitts off of me! You're gonna regret this! I wonder if I should tell Doris. No, I'll make it a surprise.
All right, everyone, quiet down. I propose a toast to Lewis and his brilliant failure. May it lead to success in the future. Gosh, you're all so nice. If I had a family, I I'd want them to be just like you.
Oh, well, then, to Lewis! What if Louis Armstrong said, "I can't"? You think he'd have walked on the moon? Dear, Louis Armstrong was a singer. What did he mean, if he had a family? Oh, Lewis is an orphan. Get up, you pansy! What a great plan! Go back in time and steal a dinosaur. Oh, Doris will be so proud of me.
Why didn't you tell me you had a pet dinosaur? He's standing right here. No, you can't eat him! I need him alive.

You messed with the wrong family! Okay, everybody, this dino's deep-dished. Now, go get that boy! Why aren't you seizing the boy? I have a big head I'm just not sure Him you can eat. Little Doris now sleeps with the fishes. Guess we made a pretty good team, huh? Yeah, guess we did. Yeah, didn't you see us take out that dinosaur? It was so cool, Mom! Oh, I mean, I'm sorry.
Oh, Lewis, it's okay. I'm really happy you're safe. It's just a bruise, Lewis. You all sacrificed so much for me. One of a kind. Okay, you should get him out of here before something really bad happens. I've got it all under control. Okay, everybody, it's been a long, hard day filled with emotional turmoil and dinosaur fights, so why don't you all hit the hay, and Lewis and me will get going?
Do you have to go now? I mean, you know, it's getting late. Maybe Lewis could spend the night. Mom, maybe some other time, okay?
Well, any time you want to come over, you just come over. You have to stay. I mean, who would be a better family for you than us? What do you say, Lewis? Do you want to be a Robinson? You want to adopt me? I'm from the past. Now you know the big secret. Wilbur, what have you done? How could you bring him here? Please, don't get mad at Wilbur. He was just being a good friend. Lewis, I am so sorry, but you have to go.
I know what I said. Lewis, look at me. You're a great kid, and we would never do anything to hurt you, but I'm sorry. You have to go back to your own time.
Yeah, about that, one of the time machines is broken, and the other one was stolen by a guy with a bowler hat, which kind of explains the dino. I'm calling your father. If I have to leave, can I at least go back and find my mom? I was never gonna do it. I can't believe I was dumb enough to actually believe you were my friend! I am your friend! Mister, you're grounded till you die. Oh, yes, Doris, it is a shame. All he wants to do is go back in time to meet the mother he never knew, but they won't let him.
We'd let him, though. Too bad we don't have a time machine. To make your dream come true. All you have to do is put Humpty Dumpty back together again, and we'll take you back to find your mommy.
Let's just talk about this, Lewis. I know you're around here somewhere.
I can't imagine why you're so interested in this piece of junk. That's for me to know and you to find out. Now, show me how to work this thing. Well, supposing it did, and if one were presenting the invention to, say, a board of directors for a very large invention company, where might one find the "On" switch? Hypothetically speaking, of course.
All right, first, you turn this knob twice, then push this red button, and that's it. What a stupid way to turn it on! Okay, take me to see my mom now. We had a deal! Why are you doing this to me? I never did anything to you. You still haven't figured it out? Well, let's see if this rings a bell.
Father of the Future, inventor extraordinaire, "Keep moving forward"? Are you saying that I'm Wilbur's dad? Give the boy a prize. You grew up to be the founder of this wretched time, so I plan to destroy your destiny. So if I'm Wilbur's dad If I'm Wilbur's dad Yes, thank you, we've established that. But what does that have to do with you? Allow me to shed some light on the subject. I think you mean our old room.
Yes, it is I, Mike Yagoobian! I'm disgusting, but one learns to love it. How did you end up like this? Well, it's a long and pitiful story about a young boy with a dream, a dream of winning a Little League championship, a dream that was ruined in the last inning.
We lost by one run because of me. If I hadn't fallen asleep, I would have caught the ball! And we would have won! For some reason, no one wanted to adopt me. Whiz kid Cornelius Robinson graduates from college at age This year's Nobel Prize goes to a young Cornelius Robinson. Hey, Goob, what's up? Hey, Goob, wanna come over to my house today? They all hated me. Eventually, they closed down the orphanage and everyone left, except me. Cornelius Robinson rebuilds Inventco. It was then that I realised it wasn't my fault.
If you hadn't kept me up all night working on your stupid project, then I wouldn't have missed the catch, so I devised a brilliant plan to get my revenge. Then, just as I was on the brink of destroying Robinson Industries, I met her. The players beat him up and he never lets it go. No one wants to adopt him since he is so angry. He also believes that everyone hates him, despite a few that are willing to become a friend, he is too angry to notice.
Eventually, the orphanage is closed down and he is left behind. He spends the next 30 years in the orphanage, never changing out of his baseball uniform and listening over the radio tormenting himself listening to Lewis's successes. He finally decides that his current situation is Lewis' fault, reasoning that if Lewis did not work on his project keeping him up all night, he would've caught the ball and could've been adopted. He threw eggs and toilet-papers Robinson Industries as a pathetic attempt at revenge.
She says that she is capable of more things, but Cornelius did not see her as anything else she was capable of doing. Realizing his simple plan was inferior to what Doris had in mind, Goob added in the sabotage of the Science Fair to the hat's scheme.
The two joined forces, and Goob took on the identity of Bowler Hat Guy. He ruins the science fair where Lewis is presenting his memory scanner, then steals the device and takes it to Inventco. Since he doesn't know anything about the scanner, he is thrown out, and at Doris' suggestion, they start to track Lewis for help. Checking at the orphanage, Goob runs into his past self, who had just returned after being beaten up by his baseball team.
After being reminded that Lewis likes to hang out on the roof, future Goob decides to go up there, but not before telling his past self to nurture his hatred and resentment for Lewis. Upon discovering that Wilbur had followed them to the past, and was now gone, they return to the future and land invisible in the Robinsons' lawn. When Doris leaves to get Lewis out of the Robinson house, she gives him control of a mini-Doris so that he can accompany her without leaving the time machine.
After spying Lewis, Doris flies off on her own, while Goob ponders how to get him out of the house. After finding a bar of frogs, he has an idea of taking control of Frankie and using him to intercept Lewis and bring him to Goob.
This fails as Frankie is too small to grab Lewis. After dismissing Frankie, a garden structure gives him the idea to go back in time and steal a T-Rex named " Tiny ". He then sends him controlled by Mini-Doris after Lewis. Hey, Goob - I mean, Michael, good luck at the big game today! I just hope I can stay awake. Don't tell me, let me guess He was up all night, working on his stupid project. But that's what happens when you get a science geek for a roommate.
Well, unlocking the secrets of the brain took a lot longer than I expected, but it's finished, Mildred; I re-calibrated the headset. Now the neural circuits will connect! I've cracked the hippocampus! Now to test it out. Oh no, I'm late! Wait a minute, Lewis, wait a minute. I almost forgot what I came up here for.
I know you have a lot on your plate today, but I've scheduled an interview for you this afternoon. Sweetheart, this is about being adopted, and you will be back here clean, happy, and on time.
Matthew Josten: Michael "Goob" Yagoobian
I'm done with interviews, Mildred. I'm not gonna be rejected anymore. Listen, I know where your head is, but I'm telling you, you have got to get out of the past and look to the future. I am, and this is it. This is my future. A dream that was ruined in the last inning. Whiz kid Cornelius Robinson graduates from college at age Cornelius Robinson rebuilds Inventco Cornelius Robinson is now It was then that I realized it wasn't 'my' fault.
If you hadn't kept me up all night working on your stupid project, then I wouldn't have missed the catch. Goob, I had no idea! And don't call me 'Goob'! How many evil villains do you know that can pull off a name like 'Goob'? Look, I'm sorry your life turned out so bad. But don't blame me you messed it up yourself.
