(Scene begins with Gumball and Darwin fast asleep. It is morning. Darwin hears a strange noise and wakes up.)
Darwin: What was that?
(The strange noise sounds again.)
Darwin: (nervous) Psst! Psst!, Psst, Gumball! Gumball, th-th-there's a sound!
(Gumball is still asleep.)
Darwin: (nervously singing) There is a strange noise, it's creepy and weird and I don't like it, and...
Gumball, wake up!
Gumball: (talking in his sleep) Is that a unicorn?
Darwin: Gumball, wake up!
Gumball: (talking in his sleep) No, I'll wear the pink dress, who put my glasses on the cookie?
Darwin: WAKE UP, GUMBALL!!!!
(Gumball wakes up)
Darwin: I see that you can't sleep, either. (Gumball falls asleep again) But as long as you're up......(strange noise sounds again) No, no, no, no, no, no, no, Gumball, wake up! (Gumball wakes up again) Listen, listen, listen, listen! (strange noise sounds again) (gasps) You see, Gumball? You see?
(Gumball and Darwin are now walking down the stairs to investigate the mysterious noise.)
Darwin: (nervous) Um, G-G-G-G-Gumball?
Darwin: What if it's a scorpion?
Gumball: (shocked) A what?!
Darwin: A scorpion. Or it could be a goblin. There's lots of goblins around these parts, you know.
Gumball: Don't say that, Darwin!
Darwin: Or what if it's a big, poisonous, s-s-snake?
Darwin: Sharpening its teeth!
Darwin: Or....or...or it could be......
(The noise turns out to be Anais blowing into a bottle.)
Darwin: Or it's Anais blowing into a bottle. That was my next guess.
Anais: I'm not blowing into a bottle. I'm practicing my new song!
Gumball: What kind of song is it, Anais?
Anais: It's majestic, and it's big and important...
Gumball: Uh, that sounds, um............
Anais: Majestic, right? Oh, but you know what? It's also a lovely song, it's simple, really.
Anais: And it's got a great beat, for those who love beats.
Gumball: Sure. So, then.........
Anais: Oh, and it'll make you laugh, and cry.....
Darwin: (groaning) Okay, we get it! When do we get to hear it?
Anais: Well, it's called "An Ode to Rainbows", as sung by Anais Watterson, accompanied by the bottle. (clears throat)
Red (blows bottle)............orange (blows bottle)............yellow (blows bottle)............green (blows bottle)............blue (blows bottle)............
Darwin: (turns to camera) Do you hear majestic? I don't hear majestic.
Anais: You know what? Let me try that again, okay? (clears throat)
Red (blows bottle)............orange (blows bottle)............
You know what? I don't think this bottle is working. I mean, it's ruining my song!
Darwin: Oh. Oh, wait, wait, wait, I have a great idea! It's the best idea ever? Are you ready?
Darwin: The piano!
Gumball: (gasps) That is the coolest idea ever, Darwin! Let's go.
(Gumball is sitting at the piano, Anais is on top of the piano and Darwin is next to Gumball.)
Darwin: Okay, Anais, this is how your rainbow song should go.
Anais: But I already know what I want.
Gumball: (plays note on the piano) La, la, la, music for Anais' song..... Oh! I got it. (singing wistfully) Once there was a man named Roy G. Biv.....That's good, uh....he loved rainbows more than anything else in the world........
(Darwin pretends to sleep)
Darwin: (wakes up) Oh, I'm sorry. Was I snoring? Okay, move over, Gumball. I'll show you what you really want, Anais.
Anais: Well, I already know what I want.
Darwin: "An Ode to Rainbows", the improved version, by Darwin. ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR!
(stomping and pounding fists on random piano keys) RED! ORANGE! YELLOW! GREEN! BLUE! INDIGO! VIOLET! RAINBOWS! RAINBOWS! RAINBOWS!!!!!!!!!! Yeah! Okay, Anais, whose was better, mine or Gumball's? I vote for mine.
Anais: Well.....nobody's was better. I mean, Gumball's was kind of.....soft, and yours was a little loud.
Darwin: A little loud? Well, that's not good. I want it 100% loud.
Gumball: Darwin, you can't have a loud song about a rainbow. Obviously, Anais likes my tune better, but she wants it even softer.
Anais: Well, actually......
Darwin: I think she wants it louder.
Gumball: She wants it softer! In fact, the piano isn't even soft enough! Hold on, I'll be right back.
Darwin: What you want is a louder instrument! Don't worry, Anais. I'll be right back.
Anais: I'm gonna write my own majestic song, thank you very much.
(Darwin is now outside, pacing.)
Darwin: (talking to himself) Okay, think. Okay, loud. Okay,
loud. I gotta think loud, loud, loud......think, Darwin, think! We need loud! Really loud! (sighs and looks down) Ooh! A stick! (picks up stick) A-ha!
(Darwin takes the stick and starts banging on a fence with it.)
Mr. Robinson: Will you stop making all that racket?!
Darwin: What? Am I being too incredibly loud? (sawing is heard in the background)
Mr. Robinson: Not you. Someone over there is being too incredibly loud.
Darwin: Oh, yeah. That is loud. (head snaps up) I like it!
(Darwin runs off. Gumball is sawing some wood with a fake toy saw. He is making a contraption out of a ribbon, two nails and a wooden board.)
Darwin: Oh, yeah! That's nice!
(Gumball hammers a nail.)
Darwin: Hmmm...it could be rainbow-ish.
Gumball: Now you gotta pluck gently, Darwin. Okay?
(Darwin begins plucking)
Gumball: No, no, no, don't touch that. No, don't touch that. (Darwin begins tapping on the wood) No, no, watch out. (Darwin examines Gumball's contraption)
No, not there. Okay. Now, it's a Very Rainbow-ish Machine. It's delicate.
(Darwin is sitting on top of the wooden board.)
Darwin: Gumball, if you wanna use this for Anais' song, (starts pulling on the ribbon) you gotta really twang it, and I am a great twanger! Yeah! Oh, yeah! Whoo!
Gumball: I really don't think that's a good idea....
(Darwin launches himself from the machine like a slingshot.)
Darwin: Whoa! I meant to do that! I meant to do that!
(Darwin lands in front of a band consisting of Tobias on piano, Carmen on bass, Banana Joe on guitar, Carrie on saxophone, Juke on drums and Mr. Small conducting)
Gumball: Darwin, are you okay?
Darwin: (offscreen) I'm fine! I did that on purpose, you know!
Gumball: Well, thanks for the suggestion! (turns to the camera)
But I really think a soft sound would be best, don't you? (beat) Yeah, much more rainbow-ish.
Mr. Small: And a one, two, three, four!
(The band starts playing)
Darwin: Hey, would you guys play a little bit softer? I mean, I'm trying to think of something loud--(gasps) I know!
(Back inside, Gumball is showing Anais his Very Rainbow-ish Machine. Darwin enters.)
Darwin: Hey, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait! Wait! Wait, wait, wait! Stop everything! You asked for loud, I got loud! (opens the door and lets in Mr. Small, Tobias, Carrie, Banana Joe, Juke and Carmen) Okay. Alright, guys, hit it! (the band starts playing)
Anais: Oh, thank you, Darwin, but I--
Gumball: Wait, Anais, I almost forgot. I got exactly what you're looking for here. (holds up a piece of broccoli tied to a ribbon on a stick) The Brocco-Whoosher! Listen. (the broccoli sways from side to side) You can barely hear it! Once there was a man named Roy G. Biv--wait, a little too loud.
Anais: You know what, Gumball and Darwin? I'm trying to tell you--
Darwin: Hit it! (Mr. Small, Carrie, Banana Joe, Tobias, Carmen and Juke start playing) Oh, yeah...red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.......
(Gumball and Darwin begin singing their songs simultaneously.)
Anais: Stop! Stop! Stop! Oh, come on! Stop it!
Anais: What I've been trying to tell you all day is that I already have the music for my song! Okay? It's loud, and it's soft. It's just the way I like it because it's my song! Now, are you gonna help me play it or what?
(Gumball and Darwin stare at each other.)
Gumball and Darwin: Mm-hmm.
