The episode opens with Danny riding home down the streets of Amity Park at night on his electric scooter. He can see Fenton Works not too far in the distance.
Danny Fenton Finally. One day where I get home on time without any ghost detours making me miss my ten o'clock curfew.
He looks at his watch, which reads "9:57." Suddenly, his ghost sense goes off. He brings his scooter to a stop and looks up at the sky, where he sees three old vulture ghosts flying. They phase in and out of three houses, scaring the people inside as they go.
Danny Or not. Going ghost!
He drives his scooter behind a van and goes ghost, then flies up alongside the vultures.
Danny You fellas look lost. Um, any chance of you staying that way?

Vulture Ghost #1

Mind your own business, fancy pants ghost boy.
The vultures fly down and phase into a bus. Danny follows them and lands in the aisle of the bus and find the vultures sitting in the seats.

Vulture Ghost #2

Hey, we've been circling this town for hours. We could have been halfway to Florida by now. Ask for directions.
Vulture Ghost #1 I know where I'm going!
Vulture Ghost #3 You so do not! (Points to Danny.) Ask him.
Danny Ask me what?
The vultures fly up out of the bus, and Danny follows them into the air.
Vulture Ghost #1 (Sighs. Flies slowly towards Danny.) We're on a search-and-destroy mission. Can you help us find and peck to death this guy here?
He holds out a torn photo of a younger Jack.
Danny Dad?
Vulture Ghost #2 Ah-ha, see? I told you he'd know where he is.
Danny swings and shoots an ecto-blast at Vulture Ghost #1, who dodges the shot.
Vulture Ghost #1 Nice try, kid. Get 'im, boys!
The vultures start to quickly circle Danny.

Danny

Give it your best shot, guys! I'm a whiz at dodgeball!
The vultures stop circling and all charge at Danny, who jumps out of the way, causing the vultures to crash into each other.
Danny Okay, technically it's "dodge-beak," but who cares?
The vultures recover from their daze and fly after Danny, who flies towards a clock tower. He notices the time on the clock.
Danny (Gasps.) Agh. It's almost ten!
Danny and the vultures spin around the clock tower, and the vultures stop in front of it while Danny phases through the side and peeks out from the clock. He phases out and grabs Vulture Ghost #3's legs.

Vulture Ghost #3

Hey!

Danny

You know that old saying about a bird in the hand? (Spins vulture around and hits other two with him, then throws him towards them.) Well, neither do I! (Vultures fly away.) And don't go messing any windshields on your way out of town!
The torn picture of Jack floats down from the vultures and Danny catches it, then looks at it.
Danny I wonder why those guys were trying to waste Dad. (Clock chimes ten behind him. He flinches and turns to look at it.) Oh, no. Dad.
Cut to Fenton Works. Danny opens the front door and peeks inside, then looks up to find Jack and Maddie with their arms crossed, looking upset.
Jack Fenton You're late again, young man.
Danny (Frowning.) Oh, poop.
Bird poop suddenly hits the back of Danny's head. He turns to glare at the vultures as they fly off above him.
Cut to theme song.
Fade into the Fentons' living room. Danny is sitting sullenly on the couch and Jazz is in a chair reading a book. Maddie is standing while sternly lecturing Danny, and Jack is working on a large green invention that looks like a giant hot water heater.
Maddie Fenton Danny, this is becoming a problem. You're constantly late coming home...
Jack (Peeks out around invention.) You're shirking from your chores...
Maddie Your grades are slipping...
Jack (Peeks out again.) You're shirking from your chores...
Danny You already said chores.
Jack I know, but when you don't do 'em, I get stuck with them.
Danny Look, I'm under a lot of pressure. You two have no idea what it's like to be a kid today!

Maddie

Come on, Danny. That's the oldest excuse in the book. (Danny sits down and leans his elbow against the couch's armrest.) There's nothing you're going through (Danny's elbow phases intangible and he falls into the armrest.) that your father and I didn't go through when we were your age.
Danny panics and covers his arm, but quickly recovers and turns it tangible again before anyone sees.

Danny

Yeah? Well, I beg to differ.

Jazz Fenton

(Closes book and looks up.) The reason Danny doesn't think you can relate to him is that you never take the time to tell him about your childhood!
Danny (Annoyed:) Jazz!
Jazz Have you ever told him how you met? About your first date?
Jack walks out from behind the invention and stands next to Maddie, both pondering over what Jazz is saying.
Danny (More annoyed:) Jazz!
Jazz Where you went to college?
Jack You know, Jasmine, that's a great idea!
Jazz It is?
Maddie What is?
Jack This is!
Jack holds out an invitation to a college reunion party for the University of Wisconsin.
Jack You can come with (Pulls Maddie close) your mother and I to our college reunion.
Danny I...can?
Jazz Wisconsin?!
Jack Sure! My old pal Vlad is throwing a huge shindig there. We'll take the RV so the whole family can go together. You can learn more about your mother's and my college days, and while we drive, (Leans down in Jazz's face, smiling) I can blather on about ghosts!
The invention Jack was working on suddenly dings and rumbles, and the hose attached to it waves around and shoots green goo on Jazz's head. She glares angrily.
Jack Haha! (Raises arms victoriously.) It works! I can't wait to blather on about that, too.
Fade to the RV driving down the road. Jazz is sitting next to Danny in the back of it.
Jazz How does this happen? You goof up, and I have to spend four days jammed in the Fenton Ghost RV?
Up front, Jack is driving and Maddie is reading a map.

Jack

That's the Fenton Family Ghost Assault Vehicle, folks. Every button in this baby is a ghost's worst nightmare.
Danny Ugh. I need some air. (Goes to press a button.)
Jazz Don't press any buttons!
Several weapons suddenly appear on the outside of the GAV. A laser shoots a chunk out of a tree, another weapon freezes a bird mid-air, causing it to fall, and another laser zaps a guy talking on his cell phone while driving, charring his face. A hose then waves around and once again shoots green goo on Jazz's head. She glares at Danny.

Jazz

I'll get you for this.
Fade to a truck stop where the GAV is parked for the night. The Fenton family is lined up together in sleeping bags in the back.
Jack Get some rest, everybody! I want the entire Fenton clan bright-eyed and bushy-tailed when we meet Masters tomorrow.
Jazz (Holds up hand.) Wait, wait, wait. Masters? As in Vlad Masters? Who was named Affluence Magazine's "Billionaire of the Year?"
Jack That's the guy! In college, he was my best friend.
Fade to a picture of a smiling Jack and Vlad in college, while other students humiliate them in the background.
Jack We were very popular guys. Roommates, lab partners, we did everything together. Until the thick fingers of fate stuck themselves right in Vlad's eyes.
Fade to a flashback of a university lab in the '80s. College-age Vlad, Maddie, and Jack are wearing lab coats and observing a small proto-portal on a table. Vlad is pondering over it, while Maddie and Jack seem pleased about it.
Vlad Masters I'm telling you, Jack, it won't work.
Jack Bogus, V-Man! It totally will! This Proto-Portal is guaranteed to bust open the wall into the ghost dimension.
Vlad, still skeptic, peers through the portal for a better look. Meanwhile, Maddie and Jack walk over to another table, where Maddie looks over a stack of papers while Jack picks up the remote for the portal.
Maddie (Notices something wrong on the papers.) Jack, these calculations aren't right.
Jack (Not paying attention.) Banzai!
Jack activates the portal with the remote. The portal starts up and swirls green in its center, but then something goes wrong and it shoots out an ectoplasmic blast that hits Vlad right in the face.
Vlad (Screaming:) Aaah! Bogus!
The blast stops, and Vlad grabs his face with both hands. His hair has turned from black to white and there is green smoke coming off his head. He turns towards Maddie and Jack and drops his hands from his face, causing the other two to gasp. His face is covered with pimples and his eyes are glowing an electric blue.
Jack (Narrating from present-day:) He was hospitalized with a horrible case of ecto-acne. (College Vlad covers his face again.) It devastated him... (College Vlad runs off) and killed his social life. (End flashback.) We haven't spoken since that day. But the good news is, I think after all these years, he's finally forgiven me.
Danny looks away from Jack with a worried look on his face.
Fade to the GAV pulling up to Vlad's mansion in Wisconsin the following day. The Fenton family walks up the front steps as Vlad steps out to greet them.
Vlad Jack...and Maddie! You've never looked lovelier, my dear. (Ushering Maddie, Danny, and Jazz inside.) Please, please, come in.
They go inside the mansion, leaving Jack outside.
Jack Vladdie, my man! It's good to-- (The door slams in his face, cutting him off.) Hello? Hello?!
Cut to the others walking into Vlad's entrance hall, which is decorated in green-and-gold and filled with Green Bay Packers' football memorabilia.
Jazz What's with the green and gold? You're a billionaire! Surely you could afford an interior designer.
Danny Jazz, hello? Football helmets, jerseys, cheeseheads? He's a Packers fanatic.
Jack (Still outside.) Hello?
Vlad (Placing hand on Danny's hand.) Oh, "fanatic" is such a negative word. (Raises hand.) But, yes.
Jazz I don't understand. You have billions of dollars! Instead of buying this stuff, why don't you just buy the team?
Vlad (Irritated:) Because the Packers are owned by the city of Green Bay and they won't sell them to me! (Regains cool; looks at Maddie next to him.) One of two things my wealth has not as of yet... (Chuckles) been able to acquire.
Maddie smiles innocently at him.
Danny (To Jazz:) Is he hitting on Mom?
Jazz As long as he's got working toilets, and Mom says no, who cares? (Walks away.)
Maddie (Uncomfortably, still under Vlad's gaze:) I'd, uh... (Points at door) better let Jack in.
Maddie walks away. Danny notices an autographed football.
Danny Whoa, cool!
Vlad Indeed. (Picks up ball.) This ball was autographed by the legendary Ray Nitschke himself. (Hugs ball to face.) It's my prized possession.
Jack (Off-screen) Heads up, V-Man! (Barges in and tackles Vlad to ground; grabs football.) Ha! I see you've still got the old moves. (Stands up.)
Vlad (Stands and snatches football back. Angrily:) Give me that! (Puts football back on pedestal.) I never had any old moves! All those years in the hospital robbed me of that!
The Fenton family looks at Vlad silently, surprised and worried over his outburst. Vlad composes himself again.
Vlad Yes. Well, it gave me time to chart out a course for my life, didn't it? Make some decisions that helped to make me very wealthy, very quickly. And it never would have happened without you, Jack. (Smiles creepily.)
Maddie (Uncomfortably:) Uh, yeah...maybe we should go.
Vlad No, no, you should stay with me! (Puts arm around Jack.) That's the whole reason I'm throwing the reunion here in my castle - previously home to the legendary Wisconsin Dairy King. (A portrait of the Dairy King is shown.) Just so I could...reconnect with you, Jack. I insist you stay.
Jack Well, I don't know. We do have a really cool RV.
Jazz (Faking a cough:) Let's stay here!
Danny (Sliding hand through air.) Smooth.
Vlad You know, Jack, the Dairy King's ghost could haunt these very halls...
Jack I'll get the bags!
Jack runs off while Vlad smiles sinisterly.
Fade to a guest bedroom in Vlad's castle later that night, where Jack and Maddie are sleeping. Jack suddenly bolts upright from the bed.
Jack Bathroom.
Jack walks out into the hallway in search of a bathroom, and the vultures from earlier phase down through the ceiling and start to fly after him. Cut to Danny asleep in another room. He suddenly wakes up as his ghost sense goes off.

Danny

Oh, great. Just what I need: a working vacation.
Danny goes ghost and flies off in search of the ghosts. The vultures are about to attack Jack with their talons when Danny's hands phase up through the floor beneath Jack and grab his legs, turning him intangible. Danny then phases Jack down through the floor.

Vulture Ghost #1

Hey, what gives?
Danny flies his half-asleep dad into the bathroom and flies out. Jack wakes up and notices where he is.
Jack Ah! Sweet relief.
Danny phases back up to the hallway where the vultures are.
Danny Hi, guys! (Punching a fist into his palm.) Remember me?
The vultures turn and see Danny, freak out, and fly away.
Danny Okay. That was almost too easy.
Vlad Ah, bright boy.
Danny turns around to see a new ghost, Vlad Plasmius, floating behind him. Vlad's arms are crossed and he has a smug grin.
Danny Oh, whatever. I was aiming for the birds, but you'll do.
Vlad raises an eyebrow, amused. Danny swings a powerful punch at Vlad, but he grabs Danny's fist in midair. Danny is surprised, and Vlad flings him hard against a wall. Danny slides down the wall and lands on a table, grabbing his head dizzily.
Danny Whoa. Fast. Alright, better stop fooling around.
Danny launches himself at Vlad again in attack, but Vlad stops him again midair by grabbing him by the throat and throws him down hard to the ground.
Vlad My vultures were supposed to bring the big idiot to me, but you'll do! Danny Phantom, right?

Danny

You...you know me?

Vlad

Of course I know you!
Vlad phases backwards through a wall and Danny follows him into Vlad's private library.
Vlad (Pointing at Danny.) You're the ghost boy who uses his powers for good. How quaint. (Gets in Danny's face and flies around him.) Aren't you going to try to shove me into your ridiculous thermos?
Danny I...I don't wanna fight you.

Vlad

No. No you don't.
Vlad fires an ectoplasmic ray at Danny, sending him crashing into a bookshelf.
Danny (Flies up and fires ecto-blast at Vlad.) Get away!
Vlad (Blocks blast with an ectoplasmic shield and crosses arms smugly.) Ah, an ectoplasmic energy blast.
Danny fires more blasts at Vlad, but Vlad casually moves his shield around to block them.
Vlad (Yawns.) So...year one.
Vlad's shield disappears, and Danny looks worriedly at his still-glowing hands.
Vlad Tell me, child, can you do this yet?
Vlad duplicates himself into three other copies. Danny backs away from them.
Danny No, I can't! How are you doing all this?
Vlad and duplicates Years of practice, which you, unfortunately, have no time for.
All four Vlads each shoot an ecto-blast at Danny, who screams in pain and falls to the floor, then struggles to stand back up. Vlad then continuously attacks him and Danny phases back out into the hallway, crashing to the floor. He tries to stay awake but falls unconscious. Vlad phases out into the hallway as well just in time to see Danny transform automatically back into his human self.
Vlad (Surprised:) The ghost boy...is Jack's son?
Vlad transforms back into his human half, Vlad Masters.
Vlad (Amused:) Well, what do you know?
Fade to commercial break.
Fade onto Danny tossing and turning beneath his bedsheets.
Danny No! Get away!
Danny wakes up and removes the bedsheets from his head to find himself back in his bedroom.
Danny Huh? Where am I? What happened?
Vlad (Appears in the doorway.) I was going to ask you the same question, young man. (Walks into room.)

Danny

I...must've been worn out from the long car trip. I-I'll be okay in the morning. I'm sorry for the scare.

Vlad

Oh, what's a little scare between friends, son, hmm? Sleep tight, little badger.
Danny goes back to sleep and Vlad closes the door on his way out.
Vlad Yes, sleep tight. (Chuckles evilly.)
Fade to the next night, where people are arriving at Vlad's castle for the reunion. Danny, now wearing a suit, peeks into Vlad's screening room to find Jazz watching old football clips.

Danny

Jazz, aren't you coming to the reunion?
Jazz What? And watch a bunch of old fossils pogo to new wave music? Pass. Did you know the Packers won the very first Super Bowl?
Danny Whatever. (Leaves.)
Sports announcer (On film screen) On a snowy day at Lambeau, Bart Starr faces Butkus and the Bears.
Cut to the main party in a ballroom. Danny and his parents come in, and Jack looks around before spotting an old classmate, Harriet Chin.
Jack Hey, Harry!
Harriet (Spits out food.) Ugh. I'd know that voice anywhere. (Walks over to Fentons.) Jack. Maddie. How nice.
Jack Danny, meet Harriet Chin. She's a big-shot reporter for the Milwaukee Journal now, but back in my college days she was just Harry. Harry Chin! Haha! (Grabs head.) Get it?!
Maddie I'm really sorry, Harriet.
Harriet Sweetie, you married him. You should be.
New wave music begins playing.

Jack

Hey, my song! Come on, let's pogo!
Jack begins to pogo while dragging Maddie along with him and runs into people.

Danny

Okay, I'm officially mortified.
Harriet What took so long?
Fade to later in the evening. Danny is sitting at a table looking bored. A party guest pogoes past him, then Vlad walks up to him and puts a hand on his shoulder.
Vlad Well, son, you're looking much better. I was wondering...if you could do me a huge favor.
Danny Oh, sure, Mr. Masters. But call me Danny. "Son's" what my dad calls me.
Vlad Oh, yes, yes, of course. Now, could you go to my lab, second door on the right upstairs? There's a present in there for your father that I'd like you to bring down. (Chuckles.)
Danny (Gets up.) Okay!
Danny leaves while Vlad has an evil smirk on his face. He turns and glares at Jack pogoing on the dance floor while Maddie and the other guests watch him. Vlad then focuses on Maddie.

Vlad

(To himself:) Maddie... That lab accident cost me my youthful chance at you, but that's all about to change...
Cut to Danny walking into Vlad's lab, looking around for the present.

Danny

Present? I don't see a present.
Danny sees and picks up a framed picture of college-aged Vlad and Maddie on a table with the top-right corner teared off.

Danny

Hey! Wait a minute.
Danny reaches into his jacket and pulls out the torn picture of younger Jack the vultures had and realizes it's the missing corner from the picture.

Danny

Oh, no. (Backing up.) No way.
Danny's ghost sense goes off and he transforms into Phantom. He looks around defensively, but the two ectopuses from "Mystery Meat" suddenly reach down and grab his arms, pulling him up into the air.
Danny (Kicking one ectopus away.) Let go!
Danny pulls the other ectopus down and slams it into the floor.
Danny Those ghosts... They were two of the first ghosts I fought!
Skulker (Off-screen) And they're not alone, pup.
Skulker traps Danny in one of his nets and shocks him through it, then steps out of the shadows to reveal himself.
Danny Skulker?!
Danny breaks free from the net and kicks Skulker into some large tank-like units.

Danny

How did you get back in your ecto-skeleton? What are you doing here?

Skulker

All excellent questions. Catch!
Skulker rolls out a small black cube towards Danny which grows and traps him inside a large glowing box.

Danny

Huh? Hey! I can't phase out of this. It's disrupting my powers!

Skulker

And that's not all it does.
Skulker presses a button on his wrist and the box shocks Danny, causing him to scream in pain and transform back into his human self. In a daze, his head falls forward on the box, but Skulker picks it back up and holds out a glowing green blade from his wrist to Danny's neck.
Danny (Chuckles nervously.) Uh, the glowing blade is new.
Skulker (Casually:) You like it? I've had some upgrades! (Evilly again:) Now...

Vlad

(Off-screen) Enough! (Standing near the lab door.) I didn't free you to kill the boy, Skulker! Your work is done.
Skulker and Danny share a confused look before Skulker retracts the blade.
Skulker Yes, well, I... (Reading from the PDA on his wrist that beeps and starts typing:) I've gotta go to the library and check out a book on a gorilla. Again!
Skulker's jetpack activates and he flies up, phasing through the ceiling.
Danny Skulker? The ectopuses? I don't understand!
Vlad Of course not. You're, what, fourteen? (Walking around Danny's box.) Too young to drive and not in college yet? I sent those ghosts, and others, to test your father's skills. Imagine my surprise when I find you, the second ghost hybrid his foolishness created.
Danny Second?
Vlad transforms into his ghost self.
Danny You! I'm going ghost! (Nothing happens.) Going ghost! (Nothing happens again.) Why can't I go ghost?
Vlad You have a battle cry, hilarious. I, on the other hand... (Pats the box Danny's in.) have this! A spectral energy neutralizer, designed by Skulker, paid for by me. And as long as you're contained within that box, you're as human as your idiot father.
Danny Let me out of here!
Vlad Why? So you can go back to stumbling through your adolescence, desperately trying to get control of your powers? Powers, by the way, that I've had for twenty years. (While demonstrating powers, including ghost shields, duplication, and invisibility:) I have experience, my child. And the money and power attained through using those powers for personal gain, you see. (Splits into three Vlads.) I could train you, teach you everything I know. (Combines back into one.) And all you'd have to do, is renounce your idiot father.
Danny Dude, you are one seriously crazed-up fruit loop. That is never going to happen.
Vlad Yes, well, once your father is out of the way, we'll see how you feel.
Vlad laughs and teleports away. Cut back to the party, where Harriet is talking to Jack, who doesn't look interested in anything she's saying.
Harriet Then I covered the guerrilla uprising in Rumackistan, got an exclusive with the rebel leader that got raves--
Jack puts his chin on his drink glass out of boredom, and Harriet notices.
Harriet (Annoyed:) Am I boring you, Jack?
Jack Frankly, yes.
Vlad Plasmius phases up invisibly from the floor behind Jack and overshadows him, turning his eyes red.

Vlad

(Overshadowing Jack) So, what do you say we liven up this shindig?
Jack (controlled by Vlad) picks up Harriet and throws her, causing her to crash into the punch bowl table. Maddie runs up behind Jack.
Maddie Jack, what's the matter with you?!
Vlad (Turns around.) Why Maddie, didn't you always know I'd turn on you? That when you chose me you chose wrong? (Reaches hands out angrily above Maddie.)
Jack (Trying to regain control.) Get out. Get out of me!
Harriet walks up behind Jack while he struggles with Vlad for control of his body.
Harriet I don't know what's come over you, but when I write about this I swear--
Jack (Clutches Maddie.) Ghost...overpowering me. Maddie, run. RUN!
Jack floats high above the dance floor as Vlad takes over him again. Several party guests run away screaming.
Harriet He's a ghost? This is the story of the century!
Maddie (Dragging Harriet away from the scene.) Come on! We have to get to the Fenton Family Ghost Assault Vehicle! (Worriedly:) I mean, the RV!
Cut to Danny still in the lab struggling to break free of the box. As he does so, the Dairy King floats in.
Dairy King Well, gosh and golly, it looks like you could use a speck of help there, dontcha know?
Danny (Relieved:) Hey, you're the Dairy King! (Worried again:) Oh, great. What are you gonna do? Suffocate me with Limburger? Strangle me with Swiss?! Or--
Dairy King Ha ha!
The Dairy King uses his scepter to press the "Open" button on the side of the box, freeing Danny and returning the box to its smaller cube state.
Danny Let me go? (Kicks cube out of the way.) Well, thank you! But, why?
Dairy King Well, not all ghosts are evil, right? Some of us just want to be left alone there, dontcha know?

Danny

Hey, will you help me fight Plasmius?
Dairy King I'm the Dairy King, kiddo. Kings don't fight. They send other people to fight for 'em. That's Royalty 101 there, dontcha know? (While phasing up out of the lab:) Try the Gouda! It's dairy fresh!
Danny smiles as the Dairy King flies away.
Maddie (Off-screen) Jack!
Danny (Alarmed:) Dad! (Goes ghost and flies off.)
Cut to Maddie and Harriet getting into the GAV outside the mansion.
Harriet (Holding a record towards Maddie.) So, Maddie, when did you first realize your husband was a monster bent on destroying his smarter, more successful, and better-dressed peers?
Maddie What are you talking about? That jumpsuit is incredibly stylish.
Maddie drives the GAV straight into Vlad's mansion, passing shocked guests and running into some items. She passes by the screening room, and Jazz peeks her head out the door.

Jazz

(Sighs.) I'm guessing we won't be invited back.
Cut back to the dance floor. Several guests are running out of the room, screaming, and one man jumps out of a window. Jack (still overshadowed by Vlad) is throwing tables around, flying, and scaring people.
Vlad (Overshadowing Jack) If you live to tell the tale, remember that big, fat (Hits man) Jack Fenton did this to you!
Danny Guess again, cheesehead.
Danny flies in, turns intangible, and flies through Jack's body, knocking a screaming Vlad out of Jack and phasing them both through a wall. Meanwhile, Jack falls to the floor.

Jack

(Angrily:) Nobody uses Jack Fenton as a human meat puppet!
Cut to Vlad and Danny phasing into Vlad's library as Danny knocks him in there. Danny then tries to punch Vlad, but Vlad kicks him away.
Vlad Daniel, stop. Think about the things I could show you, the doors I could open for you. You, Danny Phantom, and I, Vlad Plasmius. Together, we could rule.
Danny Forget it, pal. Your money can't buy my mom, it can't buy the Packers, and it can't buy me!
Danny fires an ecto-blast at Vlad who absorbs it with one hand and shoots it back at Danny with the other hand. Danny creates a shield around himself to block the attack.
Danny (Pointing.) I know who you are. I'll tell my father. I'll tell everyone.
Vlad And so will I. Honestly, if you expose me, you expose yourself.
Honking from the GAV is heard and Danny turns towards the noise.
Danny Huh?
The GAV bursts through the wall of the library, with Jack driving now, and Danny and Vlad fly out of its path.
Vlad Mind if I cut in?
An intangible Vlad phases his hands down through the top of the GAV and pulls Maddie out of the middle seat.
Maddie Let go of me! (They both turn tangible again.)
Vlad Never again, woman.
Danny looks up at the scene to see Jack get out of the GAV and chase after Vlad who flies away with Maddie in his grasp.
Jack Maddie!
Danny turns intangible and phases into the GAV to sit in the driver's seat. He tries messing around with the gear shift.

Danny

Oh, great. It's a stick.
Harriet only sees the gear shift moving.
Harriet (Excitedly:) And I wasn't going to come to this thing! Ha!
Danny finally gets the GAV to move and drives it towards Jack, who is looking up at Maddie who is being dangled by her foot by Vlad up in the air.
Maddie Jack, look out! The RV!
Jack dives out of the way of the GAV.
Danny Sorry, dad. I've got one shot at this.
Danny swerves the GAV to a stop almost just below Vlad and Maddie. A laser cannon appears out of the top of the GAV while the steering wheel converts into a weapons-tracker battle mode for Danny to use. Danny first fires an "energy beam" option at Vlad, who knocks it away. He then shoots "lightning" at him, but Vlad lets it phase through him. Finally, Danny fires the "ectoplasmic goo" option, which does hit Vlad as he recoils in disgust and it knocks him back, causing him to drop Maddie. Danny quickly phases out of the GAV and overshadows Jack, then uses him to catch Maddie.
Maddie Jack! You did it!
Danny (Overshadowing Jack) It was nothing, Mom-- uh, Maddie. Sure, heh, Maddie. You make sure Harry's okay (Sets Maddie down) while I finish this.
Maddie runs towards the GAV while Danny, still overshadowing Jack, lifts a goo-covered Vlad up off the ground.

Danny

How's it going, V-Man?

Vlad

(Mocking:) Ooh, you've overshadowed Jack. Ooh, I'm so scared. Now what's next? A card trick?
Danny Listen to me. I swear I'll walk out of my dad right now and expose us both, unless you agree to a truce.
Vlad You're bluffing.
Danny (Lowers Vlad a bit.) No, I'm not. My parents will accept me, no matter what. But if I expose you...well, what would my mom think of you?
Vlad makes a worried face at the thought of Maddie's reaction. Danny sets Vlad down.
Danny You'll be miserable and alone for the rest of your life, unless you call a truce.
Vlad Using your opponent's weaknesses against him. I am teaching you something after all. Very well. Truce. Eventually, you will join me by choice, you and your mother. But for now... (Clears throat and floats up dramatically in the air.) Curse you, Jack Fenton! Your world-renowned expertise of all things ghost has defeated me! ...Until next time, son.
Vlad dramatically screams as he dissipates into a green mist until he disappears. Danny then phases out of Jack's body and flies off, while Maddie and Harriet come up to Jack's side.
Harriet (Speaking into recorder:) World-renowned expertise! Outstanding!
Maddie Jack! I have never seen you like this! You beat that ghost all the way to Kenosha!
Jack I did? Aw, heck, I'm just doing my job.
Maddie hugs Jack as they smile.
Harriet And mine! Jack, for all the years I thought you were a crackpot, I sort of apologize.
Danny, now human, joins Maddie and Jack at their side.
Harriet Ghosts! This story will make your career - and mine!
Cut to the GAV driving away from Vlad's mansion later that night. Danny is sitting in the passenger seat while Jack drives. Jazz is lying on a bed in the back while Maddie sleeps in another bed across from her.
Danny I can't believe they fired Harry.

Jazz

Of course they fired her. She tried to file some crackpot story about ghosts. It's the Milwaukee Journal, not the National Enquirer. (Turns over to go to sleep.)
Jack I can't believe Harry blames me. And Vlad was so mad, he didn't even say goodbye. (Depressed:) And we were all such great chums in college.
Danny Oh, whatever. Who cares what you were when you were younger? It's who you grew into that makes you who you are.
Jack You think?
Danny Hey, if you can cause that much damage in college, and still turn out to be this cool, ghost-butt-kicking adult, well, maybe there's hope for me yet.
Jack (Puts arm around Danny's shoulder.) Thanks, son... But your curfew is still ten.
Danny Oh, man!
The GAV drives past a sign reading, "Now Leaving Wisconsin," and the lights above the sign flicker off.
