Chapter 4: Finding Eustace
Courage knew that he had to find Eustace if he wanted to stop Dark Laser from invading his home planet. He then noticed that there were coordinates being inputted into his star fighter showing him the location of the abandon mining facility that he didn't see while he had chased Eustace earlier in the asteroid field.
"Oh, the things that I do for love" sighed Courage as he knew he had to go back into the asteroid field to search for Eustace.
Meanwhile, back at the abandon mining facility, Eustace was having the time of his life showing off Flipsy to Dark Laser who was weeping and crying like a baby on the other line along with Muriel not knowing what to do.
"Listen to me Dark Stupid, if you wish for your precious stupid toy dog back, you're going to have to do as I say or I'm going to throw your precious toy dog deep into the abyss of this abandon mining facility where you'll never find it ever again!" laughed Eustace.
"Eustace, this has gone too far, just come back to the ship and I'm sure Dark Laser's soldiers would not bring that much harm to you knowing that you have Dark Laser's precious Flispy" said Muriel.
"Sorry, I'm not going back to that ship until I get me money from this deep space tyrant, then he can have his stupid toy dog back!" laughed Eustace.
"But if I do that, I won't have enough money to pay off my robotic workers, not to mention members of my own fleet" said Dark Laser as he still had a tear in his eyes from all the crying of the lose of Flipsy.
"Big deal" said Eustace as he had little care for Dark Laser, "give me my money, or no more stupid toy dog!"
Eustace then turned off the communications console, and the computer screen then went away.
"That'll teach someone like that not to invade me home planet, and when I finally get what I want, I'll be quite rich!" laughed Eustace.
Meanwhile, back in the asteroid field, Courage had managed to find the asteroid to which Eustace had landed his shuttle on. He then immediately recognized an abandon mining facility to which he then noticed the shuttle Eustace had stolen earlier. He immediately landed his star fighter not far from the shuttle and quickly raced toward the abandon mining facility. As he finally approached the entrance of the abandon mining facility, he could hear Eustace's cries of joy knowing that he would become quite rich with the ransom money.
"I got to get that toy dog back, but how?" asked Courage to himself to which he had an idea popped right up in his head.
He then began to disguise himself as a space miner and created a phony mining badge. After that, he then knocked right on the door to the abandon mining facility to which startled Eustace who wasn't expecting company.
"Say, who the heck could be at the door" said Eustace as he answered it to which revealed what looked like to be a mining facility inspector which Courage was disguised as, "say, are you a mining inspector, let me see your badge then?"
Courage then immediately showed Eustace his fake badge. As Eustace was carefully examining the badge along with the ID Courage had created he didn't know that Courage was sneaking right up to the toy dog-Flipsy.
"Say, wait a minute, this looks like a fake to me!" cried Eustace with quite astonishment to which he then noticed it was Courage who was just about to take Flipsy, "Hey stupid dog, get your hands off of that stupid toy dog, I need that to get rich!"
Courage then screamed for his life as he then grabbed Flipsy. He then ran right under between Eustace's legs as he attempted to grab Courage and the toy dog.
"Come back here, you stupid dog!" cried Eustace as he shook his fist.
The little pink dog then made his way back to the star fighter that was near the shuttle and immediately took off from there.
"I'm going to make sure you're going get it!" cried Eustace as he got back on his shuttle and began to start the engines.
The shuttle to which Eustace was piloting then began to follow Courage throughout the asteroid field. Eustace then pressed some buttons which began to fire the shuttle's lasers trying to target poor Courage.
"Stupid dog, if I can't have that stupid toy dog, no body can!" laughed Eustace as he started to blast away.
Courage immediately then began to use the communications command on the star fighter to contact Dark Laser and Muriel who were on the main ship.
"It must be Courage!" cried Muriel with joy, "He must have found your toy dog Flipsy."
"Flipsy, I'll be happy to be reunited back with him!" cried Dark Laser also with quite joy.
"Sir, it appears that the crazy Earth farmer is firing upon the star fighter carrying Flipsy and Courage" said one of the robotic soldiers to Dark Laser.
"What!" cried Dark Laser, "He's trying to destroy my Flipsy!"
"And my Courage!" added Muriel.
"Send fighters to help that pink dog bring back my Flipsy" said Dark Laser, "and as for the shuttle carrying the crazy Earth farmer, disable it so that I can personally punish him myself!"
Meanwhile, back to the chase scene, Eustace was having the time of his life trying to fire lasers at poor Courage who was trying to avoid him as best as he could. Courage then noticed several star fighters coming from the main ship where Dark Laser and Muriel were and they began to help escort Courage back to the main ship.
"Stupid Dark Laser, this is mine fight with that stupid dog, not yours!" cried Eustace.
Suddenly the star fighters which helped escorted Courage back to the main ship began to turn their weapons on Eustace.
"Uh oh" said Eustace as he began to try to get the shuttle to leave the area ASAP, but failed as he soon found out that the star fighters had disabled the shuttle's engines and began to hit the shuttle's console with his fists, "stupid piece of junk!"
Meanwhile back on the main ship, Courage had arrived back to which Courage happily handed Dark Laser his precious Flipsy.
"Flipsy, I missed you so much!" cried Dark Laser.
"And do you promise to not invade our planet?" asked Muriel.
"Of course, risking poor Flipsy here is too much for such an act" said Dark Laser.
"Yeah!" cried Courage.
Suddenly a computer screen of the Nowhere General then showed up with his superiors in the shadows.
"Good work" said the General to Courage and Muriel, "you two have stopped an invasion that would have risked the safety of the planet. Say, what happen to the third negotiator?"
"Oh, I'll give him the proper punishment for causing harm to Flipsy" laughed Dark Laser.
The scene then immediately switches to where Eustace is dragged into the main room of the ship in a dog costume similar to Flispy's colors, with Dark Laser sitting on the throne.
"You, Earth farmer, flip!" commanded Dark Laser.
"Make me!" replied Eustace.
Dark Laser then immediately used his powers and levitated Eustace to force him to flip.
"Now this is what I call teaching a farmer a new trick!" laughed Courage as he was there with Muriel watching it, to which the scene promptly ends.
