Chief Bobnar: A bit early, ain’t it, Dug?
Dug: Morning, Barry. Mr. Rock coming hunting today?
Barry: Wouldn’t miss it for the world.
Chief Bobnar: Right, grab a spear.
[he throws one to Treebor]
Treebor: Ooh, it’s pointy!
Chief Bobnar: Changed your underpants today?
[pointing to his friend]
Asbo: Yeah, changed it with Dongo.
Chief Bobnar: Never mind.
Dug: So I’ve been thinking, you know we always hunt rabbits, couldn’t we try hunting something bigger?
Chief Bobnar: Look at the sort of tribe we are. We’re a rabbit hunting tribe and it’s served us very well up till now.
[as they go hunting]
Chief Bobnar: Shush, everyone.
[a massive spear knocks out the Chief’s spear from his hand]
[Dug throws his spears which hits a metal shied, the cavemen watch in terror as Lord Nooth steps out of his transport]
Lord Nooth: Excellent. The Age of Stone is over. Long live the Age of Bronze.
Barry: The rabbits are fighting back!
Chief Bobnar: I don’t think this is rabbits.
[they watch as Lord Nooth steps out of his transport]
Lord Nooth: The Age of Stone is over. Long live the Age of Bronze.
[as Dug spring up to hit Lord Nooth, he’s hit by Nooth’s wrecking ball]
Dug: What’s bronze?
Chief Bobnar: How are we going to get our valley back?
Goona: [to Dug] Where have you been, the Stone Age?
Man: Sliced bread! Wow! This is the best thing since…well, ever.
Dug: I’ve got to save the tribe!
Dug: It’s time to take our valley back.
Lord Nooth: Let the game commence!
[the game begins and Dug spears the soccer ball]
Dug: We challenge the champions!
Lord Nooth: A caveman!
Referee: A caveman!
The Crowd: A caveman!
Dug: You leave my tribe in peace.
Lord Nooth: … did you say?
Referee: He said, “You… “
Lord Nooth: I heard what he said.
Dug: You took our home. We challenge you!
Lord Nooth: For the valley?
Dug: You leave my tribe in peace!
Lord Nooth: How dare you! Take him away and kill him. Slowly.
[the two guards start to walk slowly as they take Dug away]
Lord Nooth: Oh, idiots!
Dug: If we win, we can have our valley back.
Chief Bobnar: And if we don’t beat them?
Dug: We’ll spend the rest of our lives working down a mine.
Barry: Nooo! What’s a mine?
Dug: You took our home. If we win you leave my tribe in peace!
Lord Nooth: What an idea.
[touching the glass screen]
Dug: What strange magic is this?
[Hognob slides the glass screen open]
Goona: You’re pretty brave, caveman, and stupid. Actually, more stupid than brave really.
Goona: [to Dug] You’re pretty brave, caveman, and stupid. I can help.
Goona: [to Dug] You think you can beat Rael Bronzio, I can help.
Dug: Hobnob, you stay. I don’t want to attract attention.
[just then Dug, trips and falls down the aisle of seats in the soccer stadium]
Dug: If we play this game and beat them at it, we can have our valley back.
Dug: This is Goona and she’s going to help us go back to the valley.
Treebor: What happens if you kick the ball in the goal?
Dug: Then other men hug and kiss you..
Magma: I’ll give it a go.
Treebor: Oh, mum!
Lord Nooth: What on earth has got into you, Stefano?
[Nooth turns and see Hognob playing on the hard instead of Stefano who just enters]
[Nooth and Stefano yell in terror]
Dug: Come on, everyone. Let’s show them what we’ve got!
Message Bird: Delivering message.
Referee: It’s a message bird.
Message Bird: [to Nooth] You’d better not lose, or else!
[he cracks a walnut in his hand]
Lord Nooth: [to Dug] You’re losers, caveman. Always have been, always will be.
Dug: If we work together…
Goona: We may just stand a chance.
