(Kai attacks the Ninja and escapes through the rooftop, but the Ninja attack him to the floor of the Monastery of Spinjitzu. Kai then turns on the training equipment to attack the other Ninja. As the fight continues to take part, Kai lands on one of the Ninja, making the other two dogpile on them when Sensei Wu stops the fight.)
Sensei Wu: Stop!!
Cole, Jay and Zane: Yes, Sensei.
Kai: (confused) Wait a minute, they're your students too? (Sensei Wu nods.) This was my final test, wasn't it. . . .
Jay: (cutting Kai) Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! You never said anything about a fourth. It's always three. Three Blind Mice. Three Musketeers. Three. . . .
Cole: (cutting Jay) Uh, what he's trying to say, Sensei Wu, is that three of us have trained together. We're solid.
Kai: Didn't look so solid to me.
Zane: Master, what is the meaning of this?
Sensei Wu: Each of you have been chosen. Each in tune with elemental properties. But first, Ninja Go!
Cole: Whoa! How'd he do that?!
Jay: (elated) Whoa! Look what color I am!
Cole: Wait a minute, I'm still black.
(Sensei Wu starts donning each Ninja with their respective element.)
Jay: Heh, that's not all I'm the master of. I do a little inventing. A dabble in model building. A touch of cooking. A little poetry. . . .
Cole: (sighs) More like "Mouth of Lightning."
Sensei Wu: Black Ninja is Cole. Solid as rock. Master of Earth.
Cole: (talking to Kai) Nice to meet you, kid. I got your back, and for the record, there ain't nothing in this world I'm afraid of.
Zane: Except for dragons.
Cole: (annoyed) Dragons aren't from this world, Zane. I said in this world.
Kai: (intrigued) I sense this one takes things a little too seriously.
Zane: (not getting the joke) You too have the gift?
Jay: (laughs) He's just making a joke, Zane. Remember what we talked about? Your sense of humor? Huh?
Zane: (sarcastically speaking) Yes, it was a joke. Haha. (Jay shakes his head in disappointment.)
Kai: But what about my sister?!
Jay: (gasps excitedly) We're saving a girl? Is she hot?
Cole: Jay. . . .
Jay: I . . . I just wanna know what we're getting ourselves into. Does she like blue?
Kai: Back off!
Sensei Wu: When we find the weapons, we will find your sister. It is time! We must go to the first weapon.
Cole: Whoa! Hold on a minute. You said you were gonna teach us Spinjitzu.
Sensei Wu: Spinjitzu is inside each and every one of you, but it will only be unlocked if the key is ready to be found. (pauses for a moment) Come! My feet are tired. We will take the horse carriage.
Cole: Great. . . .
Jay: Now we have to find the key?
Cole: Yeah . . . I'm feeling like he's taking us for a ride.
Kai: Well, if it means finding my sister, then sign me up.
(The next day, the four Ninja pull the horse carriage which Sensei Wu is sitting on as they travel to the Caves of Despair to retrieve the first Golden Weapon.)
Jay: (mocking Kai) "Sign me up." Way to go, spark plug.
Zane: I sense this is some strange form of team-building.
Cole: Just keep pulling. We have a long way to go.
Kai: So, where did Sensei find you three?
Cole: Let's just say if it wasn't for Sensei Wu, I don't we'd ever been seen together. I was testing my limits. (In a flashback, Cole is seen climbing a mountain when he stumbles across Sensei Wu drinking tea.)
Jay: I was testing my invention. (In a flashback, Jay is shown to be testing his gliders, which were working well. Unfortunately, he crashed through a billboard, noticing Sensei Wu after the accident.)
Zane: And I was testing myself. (In a flashback, Zane is meditating under frozen water when he almost drowns after seeing Sensei Wu, who also was apparently underwater the whole time.)
Kai: You're right, if it weren't for Sensei, none of us would. . . .
Sensei Wu: (cutting Kai) Shh...Stop! (they arrive at the Caves of Despair) The Caves of Despair. Samukai must be close to unearthing the Scythe of Quakes. Remember, do not use the weapon. For its power. . . .
Jay: (cutting Sensei) Yeah, yeah, yeah! It's too much for us mortals. Alright, guys. Let's chop-socky this lemonade stand! Cole, you got the plan?
Cole: Sure do. First, we lower ourselves down the ledge. And then . . . (notices Kai's absence) . . . where's Kai?
(as the Ninja are looking for Kai, it is shown that he is already on ground level)
Jay: (sighs) Let's go.
(The three Ninja ditch their plan and proceed to Kai's route instead. When Kai gets caught by one of the Skulkin warriors, the other three attack him in order not to alert the others of the Ninja's presence.)
Kai: (noticing the map Samukai has) The map!
(At the conveyer belt, as the Skeleton Army are collecting rocks, Nuckal notices something he considers special while Cole, Jay, and Zane ride the conveyer belt unnoticed.)
Nuckal: Oh, oh, oh, oh. I found something!
Kruncha (annoyed) That's another rock, you bonehead!
Nuckal But it shaped like a doughnut. I wonder what it tastes like. (As he bites the rock and shrieks in agony, Kruncha shakes his head in disappointment.)
(Meanwhile, Kai advances closer to the map while his teammates follow him using other routes.)
Jay: (slapping Kai after finally catching up to him) What's the matter with you? (Kai silently tells him to quiet down.)
(Samukai laughs as he studies the map and leaves it on his base.)
Jay: (noticing the map in a different view) It's upside-down. They dug it at the wrong spot.
Zane: The golden weapon is near. (Grabs it with one of his shurikens without Samukai noticing.)
Kai: (after studying the map) There's no time to waste. (Takes off without his team again.)
Jay: What is it with that guy? Always in a rush.
(As Kai sneaks in without being noticed, he tries to push a boulder out of the way when his teammates arrive.)
Cole: (reminding Kai about teamwork) Hey! Before you race off again, you need to remember that we're a team.
Kai: Yeah, whatever.
(The four Ninja push the boulder aside and enter the inside of the cave to see the Scythe of Quakes.)
Jay: (in excitement) Wow! That is so cool! (His echo alerts the Skulkin Army while Cole tells him to lower his voice.)
Cole: (after retrieving the Scythe) Not so loud.
Jay: Come on. Don't be paranoid. We're totally on the opposite side of the caves.
Cole: Zip it, okay? (throws the Scythe to Kai) Now that we got the Scythe, let's sneak out while those boneheads are still busy.
(As the Ninja leave, a dragon head opens its mouth wide open.)
Cole: Alright, team. Everyone stick together. The way out is right around the corner.
(As Cole is leading the path, he comes across Samukai and the Skulkin, preparing for battle with his teammates.)
(As the Ninja fight the Skulkin, Zane calls Kai.)
Zane: Kai! Throw it here! (Kai throws the Scythe to him) Going low! (Throws the Scythe in Cole's direction.)
Kai: There's too many of them.
Jay: Let me handle that.
(As Jay is fighting them, he realizes the battle is just like the training course back at the Monastery.)
Jay: Hey, guys! It's just like the training course! Over the planks! Dodge the sword! Here comes the dummy!
(Jay, later on, performs the Spinjitzu technique.)
Kai: (surprised) Spinjitzu! Jay! What's the key?!
Jay: I'm just going through the motions. This is what Sensei must have meant when he said we already know it.
Kai: Over the planks! Dodge the sword! Here comes the dummy! (Kai also performs the Spinjitzu technique)
Kruncha: (Misinterpreting the use of the word "dummy" while laughing at Nuckal.) He just called you a dummy.
Nuckal: No, he called you a dummy.
(The two Skulkin Generals retreat when they see Zane's Spinjitzu heading their direction.)
Zane: I sense you do not stand a chance.
Samukai: (after realizing the danger they're in) Retreat!
(The whole Skeleton Army retreat as the four tornadoes head towards them.)
Cole: Huh! Guess they didn't want a second surfing of these babies. (kisses his biceps)
(Kai and Jay react in disappointment because of Cole's lame punchlines.)
Cole: Good thing they didn't check out the merchandise in the back. (Cole turns around and is shocked to see what is behind the team.)
Kai: (celebrating) Alright!
Jay: (celebrating) Woo hoo hoo!
Cole: (still in shock) Uh...guys...
Zane: (questioning) Didn't Sensei say there was a guardian protecting the weapons?
Cole: (stuttering) Is...that...a...that's not what I think it is. Is it?
Jay: You mean a dragon?
Kai: That sure looks like a dragon.
Zane: I sense we won't be able to spin our way out of this one.
(The Earth Dragon spits out sand as the four duck for cover. They then try to flee.)
Cole: I thought dragons weren't from this world!!
(Kai uncovers the Scythe to use it.)
Jay: (seeing what Kai is planning) No no, Kai. Bad idea. Sensei told us not to.
Kai: You better keep your mouth shut.
Cole: (as Kai is charging towards the Earth Dragon with the Scythe) Kai! Don't!
(Kai goes on to use the Scythe anyway. The Earth Dragon collapses after the use of the Scythe while the Ninja retreat.)
Kai: We got our escape!
Cole: We'll use Spinjitzu.
(The Earth Dragon follows them as they escape using Spinjitzu. Unfortunately, the Earth Dragon couldn't escape the cave.)
Cole: (after the Ninja escaped) That was so awesome!
Kai: Yes! We are unbelievable!
Zane: We are the best!
Jay: Did you see that?! I was like "pow"! And you were like "bam"!
Sensei Wu: (infuriated) Enough! (All four Ninja pause and pay attention to Sensei.) I told you not to use the Scythe!
Jay: (pointing fingers at Kai) He did it.
Kai: (surprised) What?
Cole: I warned him, Sensei.
Kai: Using it was my only option.
Sensei Wu: And what makes you think you're more important than the team, huh?! Huh?!
Kai: They took my sister, remember?!
(Kai realizes the mistake he made and follows right behind his team.)
(Meanwhile, in the Underworld, Samukai begs Lord Garmadon for forgiveness.)
Samukai: Master, I have failed you. They have learned Spinjitzu and they have the Scythe.
Lord Garmadon: Good. (much to Samukai's surprise) Then my brother was there.
Samukai: If I can gather my army, then we can easily ambush them at the...
Lord Garmadon: (cutting Samukai) No. Let them think they're winning.
Samukai: But...I...do not understand.
Lord Garmadon: Everything is going to plan. (laughs evilly while Samukai complies)
