This is the transcript of the Sonic Boom episode, "Strike!".

[Scene: Village Center, day.]

[Tails' Plane flies around the Village Center with the Egg Tank driving around. Team Sonic engage in battle to defeat the Egg Tank. It fires a grenade at Amy's feet. Amy hammers it away.]
Amy: Fore!
[Amy accidently hits Tails' plane with the grenade, which explodes.]
Tails: Hey, watch it, Amy! Geez, try aiming for the bad guy!
Amy: [Embarrassed] Sorry.
[Another grenade approaches Amy. Amy hammers it away, only for the grenade to bounce off the Egg Tank and detonate on Tails' Plane again.]
Tails: Oh, come on!
Dr. Eggman: Faster, you bumbling bolt buckets! What are you waiting for?
Cubot: You didn't say the magic word?
Dr. Eggman: Pawnshop.
Orbot: We were thinking "please", but pawnshop gets the job done!
[Orbot places another grenade in the cannon. As is deploys, Sonic grabs it and throws it back inside the cannon, destroying the Egg Tank. A piece of debris almost hits Tails' Plane yet again, but he steers out of the way to dodge it.]
Tails: Seriously?
Sonic: Booyah! And Sonic takes the Egg Tank.
Orbot: Perhaps you should consider grenades that explode on impact instead of ones that can be thrown back before they blow up.
Dr. Eggman: You're saying this is MY fault?!
Orbot: No, no. I would never say that. Regardless of how true it is.
Dr. Eggman: You imcompetent ingrates! You can find your own way back to the lair.
[Eggman presses a button on his wrist controller, calling the Eggmobile. Eggman jumps on it and flies away.]

[Scene Change: VIllage Center, day.]

[Orbot and Cubot try hitch-hiking. The Gogoba Chief arrives in his wagon and stops for them.]
Orbot: Might we grab a ride to our evil employer's lair?
Chief: Of course, but this wagon isn't exactly water-resistant. It'll probably just sink to the bottom of the ocean and me along with it.
Orbot: On second thought, we'll find another ride.
[The Gogoba Chief leaves and Soar the Eagle turns up in his jetpack.]
Cubot: Hey, Soar the Eagle. Any chance you could fly us over to Eggman?
Soar: I could give you a ride... Or I could give you something even more valuable: The motivation to do it yourself. [Gently] Close your eyes, and imagine you're back at the lair and a ride will manifest itself.
[Soar leaves. Orbot and Cubot try what Soar suggested. Leroy the Turtle drives through as well, splashing mud over Orbot and Cubot. Amy then arrives.]
Amy: I can't believe Eggman just abandoned you. Why do you put up with his abuse?
Cubot: Ah, he's not so bad. Sure he gets upset sometimes, but deep down, he really cares.
Orbot: He just has a funny way of showing it.
[Sonic arrives at the scene in his Blue Force One.]
Amy: Sonic, how about giving these guys a lift in Blue Force One?
Sonic: Yeah, sorry. There's a reason it's called "Blue Force One" and not "Blue Force Three".
[Sonic dashes off. Amy gives Orbot and Cubot an apologetic shrug.]

[Scene Change: Sea, day.]

[Orbot and Cubot slowly sail across the sea on a raft with oars.]

[Scene Change: Eggman's Lair, day.]

[Orbot pulls the raft while Cubot carries the oars. The lair doors opens, with Eggman waiting inside.]
Dr. Eggman: Where the heck have you two been?
Orbot: [Puts his finger up] Oh...
Dr. Eggman: Doesn't matter. I need you to go to the village and get me about a hundred decorative rocks for my garden.
[Orbot and Cubot sigh in exhaustion.]

[Scene Change: Sea, day.]

[Orbot and Cubot slowly sail across the sea on a raft with oars.]

[Scene Change: Village Center, day.]

[Orbot and Cubot drag two big sacks of rocks while Amy watches on the sidelines. Both robots stop.]
Amy: Oh, this is pathetic! You need to stand up to Eggman! And if he continues to treat you this way, you should go on strike!
Orbot: We would, but it's not a good time right now. [Cubot nods his head] He really needs these rocks.
Cubot: Of course Rock Transport Bot might have been a better choice for this assignment. But, Eggman's the evil genius, not us.

[Scene Change: Inside Eggman's Lair.]

[Orbot and Cubot return to Eggman with their sacks of rocks.]
Cubot: Hey doc, we got those rocks you asked for.
Dr. Eggman: Rocks? That was like so eighteen hours ago. Get with the times, Cubizzle.
Orbot: [Upset] But... we carried them all the way here.
Dr. Eggman: And now you'll carry them all the way back and return them! Lazy good-for-nothings.
Cubot: [Upset] We've been hauling grenades and rocks all day. We need a break pronto.
Dr. Eggman: You two can take a break... In the garbage compactor!
Orbot: [Angrily] That's the straw that broke the robot's back! We're going on strike!

[Scene Change: Outside Eggman's Lair, day]

[Orbot and Cubot are protesting outside the lair holding and raising Eggman-with-a-cross signs.]
Orbot and Cubot: [Chanting] Androids! Annoyed! We're not fairly employed! Androids! Annoyed! We're not fairly employed!
Dr. Eggman: What's going on out here? I'm trying to watch my stories!
Cubot: We're on strike!
Dr. Eggman: You two nincombots won't last a day out here.
Orbot and Cubot: [Chanting] Hey, hey! What do you say? Eggman's treating us very poorly!
Cubot: Oh I wish Rhyme Bot was here.
[Eggman watches the two robots protesting on the TV screen in the HQ room.]
Dr. Eggman: Stupid robots! Don't they know they need me more than I need them?
[Eggman bangs his fist on the table, knocking his mug over and breaking it. He looks down at the broken mug.]
Dr. Eggman: Orbot! Cubot! Clean up this mess! [Realizes they are not here] Oh, right. Heh. No problem, I have plenty of other robots.

[Scene Change: Eggman's Lair, HQ room.]

[Burnbot with an apron around its waist tries to clear up the mess with its pincers, but cannot do it.]
Dr. Eggman: [Angrily] You useless hunk of metal! What good is a destruction robot if it can't do light housework?
[Burnbot throws its apron on the ground]

[Scene Change: Outside Eggman's Lair, day.]

[Burnbot joins Orbot and Cubot in their protest.]
Orbot and Cubot: [Chanting] Androids! Annoyed! We're not fairly employed!
[Orbot and Cubot honk their horns at Eggman.]
Dr. Eggman: It that all you got?
[Burnbot honks a much bigger horn, which releases fire at Eggman. Eggman screams, ducks down and crawls back into the lair.]

[Scene Change: Eggman's Lair, HQ room.]

Dr. Eggman: Ballot Stuffer Bot, clean this up!
[The robot adds insult to injury by releasing several papers over the mess.]
Dr. Eggman: Ballot stuffing is your answer to everything! Get a new thing you one trick pony!

[Scene Change: Outside Eggman's Lair, day.]

[Ballot Stuffer Bot joins the group of protesters.]
Orbot and Cubot: [Chanting] Androids! Annoyed! We're not fairly employed! Androids! Annoyed! We're not fairly employed!
[Instead of holding a poster, Ballot Stuffer Bot releases a ballot on the floor for Eggman to pick up. He looks at it and sees the protest's logo.]

[Scene Change: Eggman's Lair, HQ room.]

[Eggman returns to the HQ room where Fire Bot is waiting.]
Dr. Eggman: Fire Bot, clean!
[Fire Bot torches the mess with its flamethrower, which catches fire. Eggman puts out the fire with his boots.]
Dr. Eggman: [Angrily] What's so hard about cleaning up this mess?!
[Eggman picks up the mess with his hands and carries it towards the bin.]
Dr. Eggman: See how easy that was? [Drops the mess back on the floor] Now you try, you flaming piece of...

[Scene Change: Outside Eggman's Lair, day.]

[The group of protesters has increased significantly. Eggman stares at them.]
Orbot and Cubot: [Chanting] Androids! Annoyed! We're not fairly employed! Androids! Annoyed! We're not fairly employed! Androids! Annoyed! We're not fairly employed!
Dr. Eggman: I don't need any of you. I can run my lair without minions! [Turns around] I can't run my lair without minions, I gotta break this strike, and I know just how to do it.

[Scene Change: Village Center, day.]

[Eggman is on stage with a group of villagers listening.]
Dr. Eggman: At Eggman Industries, employees work in a creatively challenging environment, while gaining access to our many amenities. For example, the rumpus room, where you have ample room... to... rumpus, in.
[The villagers groan and walk away from Eggman.]
Dr. Eggman: Did I mention I offer ludicrously high salaries?
[Eggman shows some cash with his hands. Wolfie, Mike the Ox, and Fastidious Beaver stop up and turn around.]
Wolfie: All that Wonga? Count me in!
Mike: I like wonga.
Fastidious: Actually, I'm a little short on wonga this month.
Dr. Eggman: I know why you three pudding heads have fixated on that one term for money, but you're hired!

[Scene Change: Village Center, day.]

[Eggman takes the three hired villagers on the Eggmobile and take off to Eggman's Lair.]
Amy: Where is Eggman taking those villagers?
Sonic: We gotta stop him. Let's roll. So... That way?
Amy: Mh-hm.

[Scene Change: Eggman's Lair, day.]

[Eggman and the villagers arrive at the lair, only to hear protesting robots boo at Eggman. Food gets thrown at the villagers, panicking them and hurrying them along. The lair door closes, with more food being thrown on it.]
Dr. Eggman: OK minions, clean that up!
Mike, Fastidious and Wolfie: Yes sir!
[The villagers clear up the mess and salute to Eggman. Eggman smiles. Meanwhile, outside the lair, robots are still protesting.]
Orbot and Cubot: Hey, hey. Whaddya say? Rhyme Bot joined our strike today! Hey, hey. Whaddya say? Rhyme Bot joined our strike today!
[Sonic and Amy arrive.]
Sonic: Time for some true blue heroing.
Amy: [Grabbing Sonic's arm] Sonic, no! You can't cause a pickathon. We'll be betraying these poor robot souls and undermining their fight!
Sonic: But we have to rescue those villagers!
[Eggman opens the lair door. The protesting stops.]
Dr. Eggman: Step aside, you bums. I'm taking my new workers for some ice cream to celebrate a job well done.
Cubot: [Whining] You never took us for ice cream.
Dr. Eggman: You never earned it.
Sonic: Wait. So these guys are workers, not prisoners? [Runs to Mike] Mike, are you really working for Eggman? Blink twice if you're in danger.
[Mike does not blink at all.]
Sonic: Wow you-you really don't blink, do you? Well, alright. If everyone's happy then I guess there's no need for a rescue. [Runs off]

[Scene Change: Village Center, day.]

Ice Cream Vendor: What can I do you for?
Fastidious: I can't make up my mind. Should I toss a coin or play "eeny meeny miny moe"? Or should I do a bind taste test?
Dr. Eggman: You don't have to do any of those things. Just destroy the cart and steal all the ice cream you want.
Fastidious: Actually, it would make more sense to steal the ice cream first and then destroy the cart.
Mike: Why destroy the cart if we already have ice cream?
Dr. Eggman: You call yourself evil minions?! At least the robots do what I say! Usually.

[Scene Change: Eggman's Lair, day.]

[Orbot and Cubot drop the posters]
Orbot: [Sights]
Cubot: Aw... This is hopeless.
Amy: It's not that bad. Don't panic.
[Cubot panics and move around with his hands on his head.]
Amy: I said don't panic.
Cubot: Sorry. I misunderstood the instructions.
Orbot: [Upset] Face it. We've been replaced. It's the scrap heap for us.
Amy: Don't give up, you can win this! You just need to hang in there.
Cubot: I have a better idea. Let's practice our groveling.
Orbot: How this? [Prays] Oh, Dr. Eggman, your mastery of villainous acts is surpassed only by the gloriousness of your moustache. The hair of which has never clogged the drain.
Amy: Oh...

[Scene Change: Seaside Island, day.]

Dr. Eggman: I said attack that guy! Burn his cart to the ground!
Vendor: Or free ice cream if you don't attack.
Dr. Eggman: No. T-that doesn't work. It's not evil enough.
Vendor: Well, it is extortion
Dr. Eggman: Technically, it's not extortion because you're offering. I'm not demanding. I guess it could be bribery, but that's evil on you. Not on me.
Mike: I vote we take the bribe.
Dr. Eggman: Vote? You don't get to vote! It's one of the basic principles of the leader-minion relationship.
Sonic: [Off-screen] Hey, Egghead!
[Sonic runs up to Eggman.]
Dr. Eggman: Gah, it's Sonic! Minions, attack!
Wolfie: No way! He'll totally kick our butts.
Sonic: Yeah I would. I-I mean, not that I would, but I could.
[The villagers refuse to attack Sonic and stare at Eggman instead.]
Dr. Eggman: You're the worst minions I've ever had, and believe you me, the bar is pretty low. Now attack!
[Sonic gives the villagers a stern look. They scream and run away. SOnic then turns to Eggman.]
Dr. Eggman: Heh. They're new.
[Eggman screams and runs away.]

[Scene Change: Outside Eggman's Lair, day.]

[Amy, Orbot and Cubot notice Eggman flying towards them.]
Amy: Okay, he's coming. Now remember, stand strong, Don't. Back. Down!
Orbot: Everybody ready to fall at his feet and ask for a merciful forgiveness?
[All the other robots agree with Orbot.]
Cubot: I'm in.
Amy: Or, there's that.
[Eggman arrives and lands at the lair]
Dr. Eggman: [Upset] I don't know what I was thinking. Please come back. All is forgiven!
Amy: Not so fast, Eggman. These robots are prepared to keep striking for months if they have to.
Dr. Eggman: What do I gotta do to get you to come back to work?
Orbot: Well, lets see... We want casual Fridays, paid maternity leave...
Cubot: And we get to choose the radio station every other Tuesday.
Dr. Eggman: Every third Tuesday and you've got yourself a deal.
Amy: Wait. They also want regular tune-ups, high grade motor oil, use of the Eggmobile for cross-water errands, and you have to treat them in a respectful manner.
Orbot: Now let's not be unreasonable. We're willing to scratch the final demand if you agree to everything else.
Dr. Eggman: [Handshaking Orbot] Done and done!
[Eggman, Orbot and Cubot smile at each other.]
Dr. Eggman: [Angrily] Now get inside your digital dunces! You've wasted enough of my time.
[Amy is alarmed by Eggman's disrespectful manner, but smiles and waves as he and all the robots move back inside the lair. However, she remembers one thing she forgot just after the door closes.]
Amy: Wait! How do I get back home?

[Scene Change: Sea, day.]

[Amy uses a raft and oars herself back home as the screen fades to black.]
