so glad that we decided to take the train to our next destination. It’s so
beautiful outside and now look at that sunset. Don’t you agree, Panda?
The only response she gets is snoring as we see Panda
fast asleep in the seat across from Kan Tai, who just shakes her head. However,
up ahead of the train, we see a hooded figure perched on a lamp post. As the
train gets closer, the figure leaps into the air and lands on top, when her
hood flies off and we get the splash screen for Q as she stays in her pose,
hair whipping behind her as the train moves on.

EPISODE 6: Q IS FOR QAPER
We come back
from the opening credits to see a pillow hit Panda smack in the face as he
wakes up with a start.
Hey! I was dreaming about grape soda flavored bamboo leaves.
bamboo trees have leaves?
do I know? I’m not a real panda. Cut me a break here.
The strumming of a guitar is heard as Panda’s ears
didn’t know this train car had a live band.
doubt that it does. Oh, hey! Look it’s professional
wrestler and rock star, Griffin Hawkins!
Walking by still strumming, the guest star splash
screen reiterates Kan Tai’s announcement that this is Griffin Hawkins.

Mind if I take a seat?

dangerous if you ask me.

anything all that valuable aboard. People don’t usually send valuables on a
Scene changes to Q, dropping down behind a car as the
train speeds down the track. The door has a high tech security lock that
requires a retinal scan as well as a password. She pulls out a small box from
her pocket and opens it up and carefully picks up a contact lens and brings it
to her eye. She then looks into the scanner as a red light comes out and scans
across her eye and then the first light turns from red to green.
She then flips over the box and there is something
written on the bottom. She then begins to punch in a number of keys on the
keypad until finally the second red light turns green and the door unlocks. She
pumps her fist in the air.
She reaches up and pulls the door open and slips into
the car. We go back into the car with Kan Tai, Panda and Griffin Hawkins. A
marshall steps into car.
going to ask everyone to remain seated. We may have an issue and in order for
us to do our job, we’re going to need everyone’s cooperation.
knew those footsteps were trouble.
we’ll just sit here and let the marshall do his job, right?
KAN TAI and GRIFFIN HAWKINS exchange looks, then look
over at PANDA
man, I hate it when you look at me like that.
We check in with the marshall as he moves through the
cars and gets to the secure car. He gets his eye scanned and types in the
password on the panel and then enters the door. As he looks around and sees
nothing amiss, he turns around and suddenly he’s sprayed in the face with some
mist and instantly collapses to the ground.
and serve, hm? Let’s get you out of the way here.
Q drags the marshall off out of the way and then
returns to the start digging through the boxes that are stacked around. She
finds a case and pulls it out and tries to open it, but it’s locked.
lucky for me that I come prepared.
She pulls out a gadget from her pocket and places it
on the case and turns it on and numbers begin to spin as we change scenes back
to Kan Tai, Panda and Griffin. Kan Tai approaches an attendant.
you seen the train marshall? I heard some strange sounds on the roof of the

I don’t see a marshall around here, do you?
do have a marshall. Let me find him and I’ll have him check it out.
As the attendant walks off, Panda glares at Kan Tai as
Griffin looks between the two. We go
back to check in on Q and her gadget beeps as the lock on the clicks open. Q
rubs her hands together as she steps up to the box and slowly opens the lid and
as she does a green hue reaches her face as she grins even wider.
hello there pretty thing. Let’s get you somewhere save before someone comes
looking for you.

Tai and her party.

Back in the previous cargo car, Q is putting the box
into her backpack and she starts to head to the door when the faces of Kan Tai
and Griffin Hawks appear in the window.
it’s time to use the back door.
Q moves to the back, opens the door and slips out of
the car. Outside the car, we see Q climbing to the top of the car and as she
reaches the top, Kan Tai is also climbing as well on the other side of the car.

of all, I’m an adult. Second of all, I don’t know what you’ve taken from that
car but you’re going to have to return it. Stealing never pays!

What Q doesn’t see is that climbing up the car behind
her is Griffin Hawkins. We see him sneaking up behind her, but he doesn’t see a
bar that is nailed to the roof of the car as his foot gets tripped and we see
him in slow motion as he yells and his face contorts and he goes feet over head
soaring over Q, who watches him fly over her head and he crashes into Kan Tai,
sending them both over the edge. Q moves over to look over the edge and sees
Hawkins hanging over the edge and Kan Tai hanging by his legs.
look like I’ve caught myself some busy bodies. Time to put your nose in someone
We fade out and when we come back, Q has tied out
heroes to the front of the train. Inside the front o
the train, Q has also taken out the conductor and tied him up, leaving him in

one is perfect like you, Kan Tai. Now, if you’ll excuse me, my stop is coming
up while your stop will be at the end of the line!
With that, Q leaps back up to the top of the train and
starts to move towards the back.
Panda walks into the engine of the train slurping on a
grape soda. He notices the conductor passed out on the floor thanks to Q.
Ain’t this guy supposed to be running the train?
Q knocked him out and took off.
wind is blowing my hair all over! Travesty!
to the front of the train! Get him up and help us get us untied.
mean come out there in front of the train? Nuh-huh.
KAN TAI & GRIFFIN HAWKINS
Okay! It’s not like you’re not getting fresh air.
PANDA wakes up the conductor who resumes control of
the engine while Panda starts his way out of the engine, deciding to finish his
soda first as the scene fades and when we return both Kan Tai and Griffin
Hawkins have been rescued.
gotta stop Q. She’s stolen something and she’s gonna get away.

stay here and keep this guy company (towards the conductor)
too, Panda. (to the conductor) Please contact the authorities and let them know
something’s been stolen.
They climb back to the top of the train.
realize I’m a stuffed animal with zero weight, right?
KAN TAI reaches and grabs Panda and carries him across
the top of the train. Down towards the other end of the train is Q as she seems
to be looking for a good jump off place. The train is approaching a farm with
some horses and cows grazing. Q decides
to make a jump for it and leaps onto an electric pole and slides down, leaping
from about halfway up and lands on a horse who doesn’t seem to appreciate it,
but when Q tells it to ‘giddy up’, it obliges and begins to run along the train
track. Q raises a hand towards the train and waves.
Flashing an angry look, Kan Tai jumps as well, sliding
down the pole and finding her own horse and chases after. Griffin Hawkins also
leaps, but he gets his pants stuck on one of the pegs, which allows his pants
to rip and he falls to the ground with his heart-covered boxer shorts.
this wasn’t what I was hoping for.
He looks up
and sees his pants hanging from the pole and shrugs before hopping on a horse
and charging after the others.
Q looks behind
and sees the others on her tail and she kicks the horse to go faster as she
begins to distance herself from the others. Griffin Hawkins has caught up to
Kan Tai and Panda who is behind Kan Tai, arms trying to wrap around her waist
to hold on for dear life when he notices Griffin.
where are your pants.

guitar shorts were in the laundry.
KAN TAI nudges her horse to go faster as she starts to
distance herself from GRIFFIN but gets closer to Q.
told you all to mind your own business! Q gotta get paid.
for someone else? That’s low, even for you Q!
I said, ya girl gotta get paid.
for Q, she’s not watching where she’s going, but the horse does and notices a
very large pool of muddy water up ahead and as he gets close, he decides it’s
not his day for a mud bath and he stops suddenly, sending Q flying feet over
head right into the puddle. Her backpack overshoots the water and lands on the
other side only to be scooped up by a drone and carried off without being

Without it, I doubt we can hold her. But we will do out best. At a minimum we
have her for knocking out the conductor and tying you to the front of the
train. Thanks for your help!
welcome! Thanks Griffin for helping out. But you might want to find some pants.
We see Griffin whose legs are turning blue from the
cold as he shakes.
No problem and yes, that is the plan. As much as I hate to say it, I’m gonna
Everyone laughs as the scene fades out to the live
version of the actual KAN TAI with her stuff Panda.
everyone! This week we saw that naughty Q try and steal something that didn’t
belong to her. It seems someone paid her to do it and that’s not a very nice
thing to do. It’s never nice to steal and it’s really never nice to pay someone
to steal something for you. I wonder who it was that paid her though. Hopefully
we find out soon. Just remember, always
be honest. When you want something, pay for it the right way. Right, Panda?
She holds up Panda and gives him a little shake.
will see you next time.
The scene changes back to the animation. A door is
opened and some footsteps are seen walking in. Someone sets a case down on a
desk and whoever is seated behind the desk pulls it close. The case is open and
a couple of vials of liquid are inside.
Perfect. Even if she did botch it up, we still got the goods. Let’s get this
replicated. We’re going to need it soon.
The case is closed and slid back towards whoever
brought it as they pick it up and walk away as the other individual laughs
evilly as the scene fades.
