(upbeat tropical house music) (Lilly exhales) Madhav, I'm open. Come on, Lil, you got this! (all cheering) Yeah, Golden Boy! Go Golden, go Golden! Hey, that was my shot. Typical Golden Boy, always stealing the spotlight. Hey, you owe me a goal. Yo, everyone check this out! (teammates cheer) Golden Boy rules! Yo, shot stealer, I'm talking to you! I've had it with this showoff. (Lilly grunts) Hey, I was using that! That was my goal and you took it. Whoa! Sounds like someone forgot there's no I in team. (teammates laugh) If you don't give me this ball I'm gonna get really mad and then... Wait. This is you only kind of mad? Hey, everyone, take cover. Lilly's about to explode. (teammates laugh) Oh, Golden Boy. Even my best friends? (Lilly and Golden Boy grunting) (Golden Boy grunts) (Lilly grunts) (all gasp) (glass shatters) (whistle blows) (Lilly and Golden Boy moan) (fidget spinner whirring) I wish I was on Unicorn Island right now instead of waiting to be punished with my nemesis. I hope they don't call my parents. Do you think they'll call them? Uh, I don't know. What if I get suspended or kicked out forever? My parents are gonna be so mad. Yeah, like my parents are gonna be so excited. (Lilly blows raspberry) I just need to ignore him and head off to my island. (Lilly inhales) (fidget spinner whirring) That spinner is so annoying! It just spins and spins and spins. Hello? (echoes) Anyone there? (echoes) Ah, no Golden Boy here. (Golden Boy Whistles) What the? Huh? (Golden Boy chuckles) Hey, where am I? And while we're at it... Ooh, am I... Echo Cave strikes again and made this very golden version of the Golden Boy materialize in my happy place. (Lilly groans) You're in Echo Cave on Unicorn Island and I think you're kind of a copy of a guy I know called the Golden Boy, but... Echo Cave? That sounds sweet. Hello! (echoes) (cave rumbles) Fools say, "Yes!" (echoes) Ha! Got you. Hey, who's the guy with the echo bits? He's funny as frosting. Maybe we move this convo outside of Echo Cave? Yeah, let's get out here. (Golden Boy snickers) So yeah, he's basically an actual golden copy of this kid called The Golden Boy from my world. So he's a human. Kinda. Cool! Wow! He's so shiny. Are all humans this shiny? Huh. I thought humans were supposed to be soft. No. You're thinking of teddy bears. Am I? (toys squeak) Oh yeah, that's it. You're funny, Dino... spew guy. Oh! No one's ever called me funny before. Will you be my best friend? (Lilly gasps) Frank, you can't call dibs. You gotta share him! This guy's instant popularity and everyone falling for his charms is just like the guy from my world. Ugh. Wait, wait. Where'd everyone go? Hello? They left without me? So let me get this straight. Humans could eat me? Well, yeah. You're made of popcorn....
