Chapter 1- Memories Of Me
20 year old Warren Scott 'Potsie' Tracy was watching the new ABC stunt show Morons with his brothers, 19 year old Ralph Virgil, 17 year old Richard Gordon a.k.a 'Richie' and 16 year old Charles Alan a.k.a 'Chachi' and as he saw a stupid plane stunt, he began to think of his early days in the US Air Force.
Potsie and his friends Roger Pearl, Melville 'Mel' Astin and Bradley 'Brad' Anderson along with Potsie's girlfriend Jennifer McKenzie and Roger's large bosomed girlfriend Courtney Nelson were all sitting close together, in their student desks, waiting for their instructor Henry Jerome. The gang was all nervous since they were all expecting a big aerodynamics test from Instrcuctor Jerome that very day.
"I can't totally believe how much fun it was this Summer!" Potsie commented to the gang.
Courtney thought back over their Summer vacation and said "They say that time flies when you're having fun, but I never noticed this behavior scientifically. It was another great Summer! All thanks to you and Roger for setting up that clever trick, Pots!"
"I guess you're right, Courtney. You can enjoy Summer no matter how old you are!" Jennifer said.
Mel, Roger and Brad all smiled, looked at each other and nodded in agreement.
"Well, another Summer's gone like hell but the memories live on." Roger sighed.
Mel looked around the classroom and pointed out "Well, it looks like Instructor Jerome's gonna be late for the first time ever." The bell rang soon after.
"Hey, Roger, didn't General Thomas ever punish you for that...." Potsie asked remembering about the prank they pulled on the first day of summer and began snickering thinking about the event. "....saggy butt joke?"
"Yeah but only a few days of cleaning the Skylark." Roger replied.
Instructor Jerome ran enthusiastically into the classroom and said "Howdy, class!"
Brad stood up from his chair in shock and questioned "Hey, Instructor Jerome, what are you doing here at this time?!? You're a bit late."
"Don't worry, Brad, I know how you all missed me," The class looked the room and sighed harshly disagreeing with him. He continued "But how the year flies by." Instructor Jerome assured the class.
"But, Instructor Jerome, what about your summer?" asked Roger.
Instructor Jerome explained "Take a deep breath, Roger and relax your inner chi…he's already there."
"I never thought I'd be so happy to see this dump again." Mel commented to the gang as they took a deep sigh and relaxed knowing at least for some time, they wouldn't be under the torture of living like hell.
"Instructor Jerome, is it true that the general's my old man's best buddy?" Potsie commented with surprise.
"Like, we are they ones that have to sit next to your big butt, where you can't even fit into your pants, Warren!" Tim Scam Jr said.
Potsie stood up on the chair, turned and yelled back "Hey! My butt's not big, Tim, it's just curved. No wonder it explains your brain and don't ever call me by my real name in my face!"
Wayne Thomas was about to yell at Tim when Instructor Jerome interrupted "Now class! People! Settle down......oh, wait there seems to be a student I missed, a new one, her name is Ashley Blake."
Potsie, Roger, Wayne, Mel and Brad all yelled "Cool!!!!!"
Jennifer and Courtney looked at each other and Jennifer told Potsie "Hey, Potsie! It's just another Ashley for you to prank on!" Potsie's face immediately turned to a sinister smile; the pranks were just flooding into his head now.
The class could hear a panting getting louder and finally, the panting was at the class door.
The ENTIRE class except Instructor Jerome was just completely stunned and shocked. As if the class had seen a ghost or something. Instructor Jerome was saying "You're Ashley Blake, right?"
The young woman said "That's me!"
"Why yes! You can have a seat right behind Warren." Instructor Jerome replied and pointed behind Potsie.
Courtney amazingly said "We can dig it!"
Brad said "I've never seen a chick, other than Jen and Court, dress like that before!"
Howard looked at Potsie as he stood there dressed like Elvis Presley. Potsie had an Elvis-like style (the light blue shirt, yellow sweater, blue jeans and black loafers) and Ralph, Richie and Chachi were in such shock that it was like their mouths hit the floor. Like when Potsie first saw Ashley when she arrived at Air Force base, they just stared at him for a full 3 minutes as Potsie usually dressed like that.
After about 4 FULL minutes of staring and Howard still filing his paperwork, Potsie and his brothers all turned their attention back to the TV as Potsie said "You guys don't know that gang at the Air Force as well as I did but I hear that Ashley's got a promotion."
"Ashley," asked Ralph, Richie and Chachi as their eyes widened. "You mean your pal Ashley Blake???"
Potsie nodded as he contined watching the TV.
At Air Force base, Captains Roger Pearl and Brad Anderson knocked on the hard on the Lieutenant General's headquarters door hoping to see 24 year old Lieutenant General Wayne Thomas alive behind that door. The door opened. It was Wayne and he was in a white shirt, blue jeans and black biker boots. Happy to see their friend unhurt, Roger and Brad smiled at Wayne as if they wanted to tell him something.
"Wayne, your dad said I could have a week off to see Potsie on Tracy Island." said Roger.
"That's cool, Roger," said Wayne." Dad says you're gonna need some good luck."
"That's what Roger told me. You see, he and Potsie are best buddies." said Brad.
"We know!!" Roger and Wayne said together.
"Good luck for the rest of the week, Roge!" Brad added.

Chapter 2- Hello, Roger
"Mr Tracy, I just wanted to tell you that Potsie's getting quite excited and can't wait to see Roger again." Alfred 'Al' Delvecchio said.
"That's wonderful, Al. I can't wait to see him too. The rest of the boys don't know he's coming so they'll be happy to see him." said Howard and remembered that Roger and Potsie were best friends in the USAF.
A few minutes later, the Tracy brothers and Joanie were sitting in the living room waiting for Howard who just went to go and greet Roger.
A few minutes later, they didn't even notice Howard and Roger walk into the room. Howard cleared his throat and they turned around in surprise.
Roger was still in his USAF uniform and Potsie noticed his Irish-American roommate's blue eyes seemed to dance with a mischievous fire that intrigued him.
Recognition hit everyone else's faces and they all ran to greet him and Howard said "Potsie, why don't you go say hello, it's been a while since you last saw Roger."
Howard hugged Roger and said "Potsie's very glad to see you again, Roger."
"Me too, Mr Tracy." grinned Roger at their little inside joke.
"Well, I'll go see if Marion needs some help in the kitchen while everybody gets comfortable." said Howard as he left the team alone.
Then Potsie asked "Hey, Roge, how's life in the Air Force?"
"Boring without you, Man," said Roger. "How's it like working for your dad?"
"Uhh…you know, the same sort of stuff." said Potsie.
"Don't worry, Roger, me and Chachi learned our pranks from the best." said Richie.
"Richie's right." agreed Chachi.
"What's this?" chuckled Joanie at Chachi's statement.
"In the Air Force, Potsie and Roger were like a double act!" informed Roger.
"Time to eat!" yelled Howard and everyone went to the table. After a good meal and a long time swapping stories old and new, it was time for everybody to retire for the evening.
Potsie and Howard walked Roger to the guest room and Howard told Roger that tomorrow will be a fun filled day of getting to know about International Rescue and then said goodnight. Roger settled down on the bed barely able to contain his excitement for tomorrow to come.

Chapter 3- We Are Sooooo Dead
The next day, Howard, Potsie and Roger had left Tracy Island to go the the mall in New York but Roger looked around in case he saw his father.
"Any luck?" Potsie asked his best friend as he saw Roger's father walking past them.
"Yep, he just went past us but we did wave to each other!" Roger answered.
Images flicked past Roger's blue eyes as though they were on fast forward. There, pasted in front of his eyes, was his girlfriend Courtney Nelson. And then suddenly, it was Roger's handsome face that he saw. He saw his father and family back in New York. He saw his mother who was killed in a car crash 7 years back. He saw Potsie when they first met. He saw himself and Potsie asking Courtney and Jennifer to go to the movies on a date and the look of pure happiness on his face as he accepted had touched her soul.
"I only met your father quite a few times, Roger," Howard said. "But I barely know him like you do but you know me as well as Potsie does."
"You got to respect Roger, Dad," Potsie said suddenly. "He knows what he's doing. Tim Scam attacked me and put me under mind control but thank god I hated him."
Worried about what his second oldest son had told him, Howard remembered that Roger was the first person to find out about International Rescue.
"Potsie, I don't suppose you'd like to inform us all as to the details of Tim's scret lair although I met his father a few times." he said. Roger blankly pulled out a map.
"It's right here, Mr Tracy," he said pinpointing a square block on the gridlines. "Taus Scientific Developments was what it was back in the 40s and it was owned by a certain Mister Limerick Taus, the renowned scientist and self-proclaimed genius."
"The Candy Man and Tim are such jerks." stated Potsie.
Howard blinked in surprise and twitched at seeing his son and his best friend talking about the time they kicked Tim's big bubble butt. Howard was not surprised to see that Potsie was under mind control a month ago. It had all been planned, the Candy Man knew Tim wanted revenge against Potsie. A single, lonesome tear trickled down Howard's cheek. Potsie and Roger watched it's course down towards his neck.

Chapter 4- Abducted
Back at Air Force Base, the Candy Man was in a very good mood as he arrived. Leo Scam had found out that Lietenant General Wayne Thomas was there so all he had to do was get into Wayne's headquarters. That was not going to be a problem unless he decided to hypnotise Wayne's assistant Melissa Paris to tell him where Wayne was. Then he will just wait for the unwitting young man to walk into his trap despite the fact that his pet bulldog Bowzer the 2nd was there.
Before the Candy Man knew it, he had arrived at Wayne's headquarters and was inside. He had to admit it was a lot like the General's headquarters and if he didn't have more important things to do, he would have stayed a while and enjoyed himself. However, he had to find a hiding place so that Wayne wouldn't have time to get help when the Hood struck but he had to be careful but if Melissa came with Wayne, the plan would be ruined as the headquarters would have to be investigated. The Candy Man could not risk Melissa sounding the alarm and and alerting Bowzer to attack.
When the Candy Man was safely under Wayne's desk, he went over his plan a few more times to make sure that everything had been taken care of. As if on cue, Wayne came though the door tagged along by Melissa who told him that she was going to take Bowzer for a walk. The Candy Man almost laughed. When Wayne saw the Candy Man and laid eyes on him, he didn't have any time to react before he was under the Candy Man's spell.
"Now, Lieutenant General Thomas, I told your father you're safe and that you'll be with me." said the Candy Man with confidence, this was just too easy.
The Candy Man smiled as he then instructed Wayne to leave with him. The Candy Man led him to a jet where Eugene was waiting for them.
"Step on it, Eugene." the Candy Man instructed when both he and Wayne were safely in the jet.
"Sure thing, Boss. Did everything go as planned?" asked Eugene as he took off.
"Of course, Eugene, I told you it would!" answered the Candy Man somewhat annoyed that Eugene asked him such a dumb question.
Once they were 7 feet above the ground, the Candy Man injected Wayne with a knockout drug so that he would not cause them any problems and got back to the Candy Man's hideout.

Chapter 5- Oh Man, I'm Done For
Back at Air Force base, 22 year old Stuart Thomas gazed at his watch and sighed as he thought 12:10.
"Wayne's late." he stated looking at his father.
General Thomas raised an eyebrow and said "And that's new because . . .?"
"No," 19 year old Marshall sighed. "In fact, it's just like him."
"Don't worry, Boys. He'll be here," the General said. "He probably just got carried away talking with Scott and Tommy and they lost track of time."
"Yeah, you're right," 24 year old Kelly Carter said as she sat down rubbing her forehead with a hand. "I think you might be right."
Colonel Ann Carter sharply glanced at her and said "You're really worried, aren't you?"
She reluctantly nodded and answered "This just isn't like him."
20 year old Louise stared at her for a moment and then nodded saying "I'll give Fonzie a call," She picked up her cell phone and dialed Arthur John 'Fonzie' Tracy's cell phone number. "Fonzie? It's Louise . . . I'm fine. Look, could you tell your dad that we're waiting for Wayne." She paused. "What? But he said he was going to go talk to you dudes. No, it's okay. I'm sure everything's okay." She paused. "Yes, I'll be sure to give you a call when we find him. Thanks, Fonzie." Sighing, Louise hung up the phone. "He says Vicky was the last person to see him."
"But Vicky was working at that time," Stuart said. "I'll give him a call. He's going to have a bit of explaining to do this time around." Reaching into his jacket, he pulled out his cell phone and dialed the number to Wayne's phone. His frown deepened with each unanswered ring. "He's not picking up."
"He didn't just disappear," General Thomas said. "This is Air Force base, for Pete's sake. He has to be around somewhere. Can you pick him up on your watch, Carter?"
Colonel Carter turned on the tracker in her watch and shook her head saying "He's not coming in. Do you still have the tracking software on your laptop, Kelly? I should be able to pick him up then regardless of where he is."
"Sure, Mom. But at this point, I don't know if he wants me to find him," Kelly said. "I'm more likely to kill him then hug him."
"That makes all of us," Marshall said as he watched Wayne's signal. "He's probaby been kidnapped."
Wayne woke to someone slapping his face. From the burning sensation on his cheek, that was not the first time the person had hit him either. He opened his eyes just in time to see the hand descend again. His head rocked from the force of the blow. As far as Wayne could tell, he was sitting on a chair in a cell with his arms tied behind him.
"Sleeping beauty's finally awake, Sir." said Eugene's voice as his left hand grabbed Wayne's hair forcing him to look at the face of his captor.
"Leo, is that you?" Wayne said as he knew his throat was dry.
"Sure it is, Stupid." Leo Scam snapped as Wayne glared at him.
Leo's free hand grabbed Wayne's neck, choking him as he snarled "Don't give me that. You thought I was the Candy Man and you'll only get hurt more. Do you understand me?"
Wayne nodded and gasped for breath when Leo released his hold.
"Now," Leo continued. "We can do this the hard way or the easy way. The hard way involves lots of enjoyment for the four of us but lots of pain for you. On the other hand, the easy way makes for a boring trip for us but you get to keep your body in one piece. Choose wisely, Wayne. I don't think I have to tell you which way me and the guys want it to go."
To Wayne's right, Bruce cracked his knuckles.
Wayne shook his head and grimly said "I'll behave."
As the men moved away, Wayne tested his bonds but found them tightly tied. Shifting slightly, Wayne managed to touch the third button on the right side of the watch's face. Immediately a laser cut through the ropes. With a small grin, Wayne made a mental note to thank Kelly for the newly added feature.
"What are you grinning at?" Bruce asked suspiciously nearing Wayne.
"Oh, nothing," Wayne replied. "I was just wondering why the Candy Man wants me of all people. I mean, I would think Potsie might be a better bargaining piece."
"The Candy Man doesn't want to bargain," Lance said. "He just wants to know all your secrets."
"I don't have any secrets." Wayne said trying to look innocent.
"That does it." Eugene harshly answered, balling his fists.
"Eugene," Sticky warned. "There's no need for that. Just shut him up."
Eugene nodded and grabbed a piece of cloth from a pile in one of the corner's.
"Sorry but I'm not gonna let you put that thing in my mouth," Wayne said as Eugene approached him. "I've got no idea where it's been."
Lashing out with his foot, Wayne caught Eugene between the legs. And even before Eugene fell to the floor groaning, Wayne was up and running toward the doors. Leo and Lance grabbed at him but he dodged away and ran right into Bruce. The strong man pulled him into a bear hug pushing Wayne's breath out of his body. Wayne pushed his arms up causing Bruce to loosen his arms long enough for Wayne to duck underneath them. Only to be caught in the side by Bruce's fist.
Wayne managed to recover enough to get out of the way of Bruce's punch. In return, Wayne kicked Bruce in the stomach causing the man to stagger backwards.
Out of the corner of his eye, Wayne saw Leo launch himself towards him. Wayne took a few steps to the left but Leo still managed to grab his ankle making him stumble to one knee. Suddenly, Eugene was there wrenching his right arm behind his back. He gasped as pain suddenly shot up through his shoulder.
"If you make another move, I'll rip it off." Eugene threatened.
"Bruce, Lance, hurry up." Leo yelled.
Wayne thrust his free elbow backwards, right into Eugene's gut. Eugene let out a rush of air but did not let go of Wayne's arm. Lance grabbed his other arm jerking it behind his back. Then Bruce was in front of Wayne holding a rag to his face. Wayne held his breath and turned his head to the side. Lance twisted his arm and Wayne caught his breath in agony. But one breath was enough and he slid into blackness.

Chapter 6- You Again?
Wayne awoke with a pounding headache to darkness, lying on his left side on what felt like a floor but his Air Force jacket was gone. For some time, he lay still but the painful haze in his brain cleared and he was able to make his mind work again. He noticed that he was in a dark cell of some kind and tried to speak but realized his mouth was taped closed. His hands were tightly bound at the wrists behind him and his ankles were secured together. He tried to identify the voices of the two men only a few feet away or at least memorize them so he could identify them later. Both were Americans; he knew those voices belonged to two men working for the Hood, Bruce LaMarr and Lanceon 'Lance' McArthur. He knew that his former co-pilot Leo Scam and these two captured him from Air Force base.
As soon as he arrived in the cell, Leo grunted as he roughly dumped Wayne over on his back but Wayne barely kept from shuddering in revulsion as Tim's hand stroked softly along his cheek. "Well, well. Isn't this a piece of work?" he asked as he glared at the bound and gagged Wayne.
"So," Leo snarled. "You are awake. How much have you heard, I wonder? Enough to move things along?"
Wayne panicked and rolling violently away from Leo forgetting about the wall at his side. Leo followed him before he could correct his mistake planting a knee in his back so he could not roll back and trapping him against the wall. Wayne yelled in outrage despite the tape over his mouth and desperately fought to get away from him.
"Hmm, I might enjoy this after all." Leo murmured, his hand firmly grasping Wayne's wavy dark hair.
"Yeah, well, if he's awake, let's get on with it, okay?" Bruce demanded.
"Yeah," Lance added. "We're crooks, not babysitters."
"Okay, okay," Leo said leaving Wayne panting in fear as soon as Bruce and Lance dumped him on the bed nearby. "Thanks, Guys. I'll take it from here. I don't know what you've got planned 'til the Candy Man shows up but I hope you enjoy it."
Bruce and Lance left the two former co-pilots alone as the left the cell and Leo glared at his former co-pilot.
"Been a while for us, hasn't it, Wayne," Leo asked and then chuckled. "You and your dad are so much alike, you look, act and dress like each other and it only makes it worse. If you hadn't seen me or those guys, I won't have to do this!"
Leo slapped Wayne across the face and then decided to batter at his eyes and the rest of his face as well as generally pummeling him like a punching bag striking at his chest, ribcage and stomach at random. After a only few minutes of this punishment, Wayne gratefully passed out. A few minutes later, he was forced back to consciousness, gagging and choking as a tissue was placed under his bloodied nose.
"Is he dead?" asked Sticky as he saw Wayne about to cry on the bed and seriously injured.
"No, Dad, he's merely injured," Leo said sarcastilly as he looked at Wayne. "But he'll be okay."
Finally, Sticky treated to Wayne's wounds and then he and Leo left him alone, closing the door behind them. Tears rolled down Wayne's cheeks and the muffled sobs he had been holding finally escaped. He didn't even hear the door open again or realise Leo was sitting next to him until he was spun around onto his back.
"The next time you try and escape me like that, I'll either dislocate your shoulder or kill you." he threatened quietly
Wayne tried to control himself trying to think about his father to stop himself from crying. Why did he kidnap me for? he thought.
Leo said nothing and went about attempting to hurt Wayne again as he lay on the bed with steel eyes.
He disappeared for a moment, closing the bedroom door behind him before returning with Eugene. Silently, the tall beefy man pulled up a chair beside the bed and swung a baseball bat at Wayne's head knocking him unconscious.

Chapter 7- A Plan In Action
Back at Air Force base, General Thomas's emotions were muddled but he could clearly identify one that stood out as soon as Melissa came into his headquarters with Bowzer. The fear of losing another family member. The general knew he wouldn't be able to handle losing Wayne a different way to the way he had lost his late wife, Wanda. Although Stuart and Marshall shared their mother's brown hair and hazel eyes, Wayne had been the only brother with the same mole she had on her left cheek.
General Thomas had been able to raise his own sons after Wanda's death but the boys had learned to negotiate. Wayne had been 11 years old at the time but Stuart, who was 9 years old by then, was old enough to understand their mother's passing but their 6 year old sibling Marshall became rather quiet and shy but was starting to come out of his shell more these days.
"Hey, Dad, are you okay," asked 22 year old Stuart as he and 19 year old Marshall showed up at their father's headqaurters to find him crying. "Wait a mo, where's Wayne?"
"Stuart, Marshall, I don't know how to tell you this," General Thomas sighed sadly. "But Wayne's been kidnapped."
"Sir, I can't believe that a man known as the Hood would do such a thing." Colonel Marion Carter said as she arrived with 24 year old Kelly and 20 year old Louise.
Kelly backed away again over by the window and looked at General Thomas as a single tear rolled down her cheek. "That guy's gonna pay for this," she said as she began to cry. "Wayne doesn't deserve to be killed."
"I know that bit," Louise said. "If I ever get my hands on Leo Scam, I'll kick his butt so hard, his dad'll feel it."
Tears fell down Kelly's cheeks as soon as soon as she left the general's headquarters and Bowzer snarled at the very mention of Tim's name.
"I wanna kick his butt for slapping me who knows how many times, Louise." Marshall sighed as he found Kelly's locket which was engraved with the words 'Kelly ♥s Wayne' and decided to call 21 year old Arthur John 'Fonzie' Tracy and tell him about Wayne's abduction.
"International Rescue?" Fonzie's voice said.
"Fonz, it's Marshall Thomas," Marshall's quiet voice said. "Did you record anything that happened the time Wayen was kidnapped."
"Here it is, Marshall," Fonzie said as he put something up on screen. "Let me show you what happened."
Fonzie pressed a button and the screen showed Bruce, Lance, Mullion and Leo getting into a fight with Wayne before kidnapping him and the video ended as Fonzie stopped it.
"Wayne was kidnapped by the Candy Man." Fonzie sighed.
"We've heard of him from Potsie," Marshall said as he was about to cry. "He's a bad guy and he's got my oldest brother."
"Potsie told me that your oldest bro's one of the coolest guys he ever met, believe me." Fonzie said.
But at that moment, Fonzie ended the call and Marshall went back to the Thomas family's quarters crying and clutching Kelly's locket in his left hand.

Chapter 8- Fonziebirds Are Go
It had been three days since Roger arrived on Tracy Island and he and Potsie were still acting the way they used to. The way they acted was slowly driving Howard crazy. Then all of a sudden, Fonzie called in.
"Go ahead, Fonzie." said Howard hopeful of news.
By the look on Fonzie's face, Howard knew that there was indeed news but by no means good news. Howard braced himself for the worst.
"Dad, sorry to tell you this but General Thomas's oldest son Wayne was kidnapped by the Candy Man and that Leo Scam guy Potsie often argued with." stated Fonzie.
Those words made Howard want to kick himself. The Candy Man must have known everything about Potsie being one of International Rescue to be able to get Wayne. Howard thought to him self still mentally telling himself off for not even telling General Thomas.
"Dad?" asked Fonzie's worried voice breaking Howard from his own mental torture.
"Can you patch General Thomas through, Fonzie?" he asked.
Fonzie put General Thomas through to his father as asked and half hoped not to be able to hear the conversation, in fear that the news about Wayne was what they had all put as their worst case scenario which was that he was dead and there was nothing they could do to help him.
"Hi, hi, hi, Howard, sorry to call you at a time like this." said voice which sounded very upset.
"Did you get anything from Wayne before he was kidnapped, Al?" asked Howard.
"Not really, Howard but I heard that the Candy Man kidnapped Wayne. I've got to admit that he is an impressive kid so I hope you can carry out my instructions quickly." General Thomas sighed sadly.
"Al, please don't cry." Howard said as the voice on the other line began crying.
"I'm sorry, Howard but I need your help more than ever this time." replied the general who was crying right now.
Howard liked General Thomas a lot, they had got on well as General Thomas was a flight expert and had helped with Howard on his plane, the Skywriter when he was in the Air Force. Howard knew that all his best friend wanted at this moment was to have his oldest son home safe and sound but would they be safe if the Candy Man had the Fonziebirds.
"Okay, Dad, we let the Candy Man try and kick our butts but then, we kick his butt right back. We contact Jennifer, Courtney, Mel and Brad to help us or something. We, in the meantime, come up with a plan to find Wayne. At least we can be sure of getting him back safely." suggested Ralph although he thought that the Candy Man was bound to pull a fast one on them.
"I don't like the idea, Ralph but as it stands we don't have any other choice as far as I can see," stated Howard agreeing with Ralph. "Fonziebirds are go."
And with those words, Fonziebirds 1 & 2 took off for the Candy Man's hideout where Wayne was being held captive.
02-15-2006, 08:03 AM
Chapter 9- The Rescuers
Inside Fonziebird 2, Richie glanced at Joanie as she tapped on her computer book.
"What are you doing, Joanie?" he asked.
"Sometime ago, Al said he was able to trace the Candy Man's frequency for radio and data transmissions, I hope he still uses it." answered Joanie.
"Don't get upset, Joanie but won't it be better if you use your laptop for that?" asked Ralph.
"Yeah, it would but the point is, all that data is stored in my computer book, I hadn't had the time to build a way to transfer the data out of it." Gina answered.
"Oh!!!" said Ralph, Richie and Joanie.
Meanwhile, Fonziebird 1 travelled following the signal emanating from a gift Howard gave to Ralph a while ago.
"I hope Roger forgives me if he ever finds out that the pendants I gave him had tracking devices." said Potsie as he noticed Howard touching Chachi's arm.
"I know Leo's a Potsie but I wanna kick his butt too." said Chachi.
Meanwhile at the Candy Man's hideout, Wayne lay on the bed, bound, gagged and injured.
I gotta get outta here, I don't know what that Candy Man guy's got in mind. thought Wayne.
"Boss, International Rescue are here, should we kill them?" Eugene asked.
"International Rescue, they're still alive?" the Candy Man asked. "Yes, Eugene, you may but maybe I can persuade Lieutenant General Thomas."
Wayne was nearly asleep when the door opened and Potsie got him off the bed and untied him allowing him to take his gag off and drove him to a room where his Air Force jacket laid on the bed.
"Wayne, get your jacket back on, quickly." Potsie said.
"Well," Wayne sighed. You and your dad don't expect me to change in front of you, right, Pots?"
Both Howard and Potsie blinked and walked out closing the door.
"Great, no windows but I'll have to put my Air Force jacket back on before I get my butt kicked." Wayne told himself.
In a few moments, Wayne was ready as he walked to the door.
"So, now what?" he asked.
"Let's get out of here." Howard answered as he and Potsie lead Wayne through several corridors until she was in front of a huge door that opened as soon as Howard touched a brick on the wall.
Meanwhile, Roger, Mel, Brad, Jennifer and Courtney all got out of their planes.
"Are you sure this is the way?" Jennifer asked.
"Hey, I'm sure, now come on, the entrance is near, do you see that cave there?" Courtney asked.
"Yeah!" Brad said.
"Marshall said he intercepted a radio transmission earlier on with the access code to open the door to their subterranean facility." answered Roger.
"You did that?" Mel asked.
"Yeah, I don't see any guards, come on." Jennifer said as she lead the way to the Candy Man's hideout.
But at that moment, several guns cocked behind them.
"Look what we found." Bruce's deep rumbling bass voice said
"Get up, the Candy Man wants to see you." Lance's husky voice said.
02-16-2006, 07:27 AM
Chapter 10- Caught
Bruce, Lance and Mullion dragged Jennifer, Mel, Brad and Courtney to the Candy Man's office thus effectively confusing them as they saw Potsie, Howard and Wayne trying to find out what was happening around them but confusion only spreaded as the Candy Man noticed them.
"If you've done something to Wayne, I'll kick your big bubble butt, you bald headed butthead." snarled Mel as he galred at the Candy Man and realized that the Tracys, Joanie, Gina, Roger and Wayne were by the door and Wayne was free from his restraints and the escalating terror of what Leo and Eugene did to him.
"Guys," Wayne said running to hug the young captains. "Am I glad to see you again?"
Jennifer and Courtney looked Wayne, Potsie and Roger right in the eyes, having barely heard his voice since he had his mouth taped shut for the past 3 hours.
"Yeah, Wayne, we're really glad to see you too." Jennifer said smiling.
"Forget about the Candy Man," Courtney added. "Let's just kick his big bubble butt and get the Hell outta here."
Brad and Mel realized that that Bruce and Lance were running towards them and kicked their butts as hard as they could and Courntey and Jennifer did the same to Sticky while Potsie, Roger and Wayne all gave Leo a good butt kicking.
"Thank God, oh thank God," Brad said hugging Wayne. "Wayne, you're alive! We're gonna get outta here if it's the last thing we ever do."
The Candy Man grabbed Wayne and chuckled as Ralph, Richie, Joanie, Gina and Chachi all looked shocked and said "I suggest none of you move or Lieutenant General Thomas here will have his throat cut." He quickly pushed a dagger just slightly into Wayne's neck releasing a single droplet of blood that began to slowly make it's way downward across his neck leaving a trail of hot liquid in its wake.
What's happening? thought Wayne. Why's this butthead doing this to me? Dad, where are you? Help me!
As Potsie kicked the Candy Man's butt from behind, he was instantly confused and looked in every direction for Potsie but didn't hear him. Then from out of no where, Potsie jumped from behind the Candy Man and tackled him sending both of them over the Candy Man's desk. They struggled flipping over one another each trying to get control of the dagger still in the Candy Man's hand.
Both men were kicking and throwing punches as they try to remain on top of the other but Potsie was able to get the upper hand as he twisted the Candy Man's arm awkwardly causing him to drop the dagger. Trying to get out of Potsie's grasp though, the Candy Man flipped over rapidly and impaled himself through the ribs on his own dagger that had bounced off the ground after being dropped.
"He's out cold, Dad." Ralph said checking for a pulse on the Candy Man and Howard nodded.
"We gotta get you back to Air Force base, Wayne." Richie said as Wayne clutched his head.
"We hope your dad won't let anything like this ever happen to you again." said Chachi.
Back at Air Force base, General Thomas thanked Howard and co for saving Wayne's life and Bowzer licked Potsie's face for saving his master's life as his master's father headed to the hospital shack where his oldest son was at that very moment. For the first time in the last 8 hours, General Thomas was able to sit back and begin to relax happy in the knowledge that Wayne was safe and sound and unharmed.

Chapter 11- Goodbye, Roger
That evening on Tracy Island, Potsie entered the guest room where Roger was and saw him packing to get ready to go back to Air Force base and he walked over to the bed and sighed.
"Going so soon, Roge?" Potsie asked his best friend.
"Sure am, Potsie," I said. "General Thomas said my week with you and the gang is over."
Howard looked over at Potsie and Roger and he was so happy to see them again. Potsie looked at his father and Roger remembered that he was told his father was visiting the next week.
"Oh, Roger. I can't believe you're going now." Howard said worriedy.
"Well, General Thomas wants me back, Mr Tracy." Roger complimented.
"Yeah, we know." said both Howard and Potsie as Wayne's plane, the Batman, came by and picked Roger up.
The whole family waved good-bye to Roger as the Batman went back to Air Force base and since Wayne was feeling a bit better, Potsie knew that he was almost beaten to death a few days ago when Bruce and Lance brutally attacked him.
"Hope we'll see Roger real soon." Chachi said.
"Mm-hmm. I love it when he wants to spend time with Potsie." Richie said.
"Me too." Gina said.
"Hey, guys. Where's Roger?" Ralph asked when he and Al got out of the villa.
"He already left, Ralph!" Joanie answered.
"I asked him if he wanted to spend some time with us but he said he'll be back." Marion laughed.
"I dunno about you guys but I'm gonna call Jennifer." said Potsie as he went up to his room.
Potsie ran into his room ignoring that he was wearing his usual outfit, slumped on the bed, picked his phone up and called Jennifer.
"Hello." Jennifer's voice on the other line said.
"Hi, Jennifer, wanna go out on Friday night?" Potsie asked.
"Sure, Potsie, I'd love to!" Jennifer responded.
Potsie hung up on his phone and put it down on the bedside table. He felt so glad that Jennifer wasn't groped by Leo and that Wayne wasn't dead from the beatings that Leo, Eugene, Bruce and Lance inflicted on him.
