Cuphead Wiki

  • Elder Kettle: [singing] I love my little veggies, they're my babies I would say! I sprinkle them with love and care, each and every day. I shine their little, veggie skin, and chase away the bugs! I give them water, and manure, and lots and lots of hugs! Though you are just babies now, merely bug and twig. If I give you all you need, you'll grow to be so big!
  • [Elder Kettle's back breaks]
  • Elder Kettle: Ow, my back! [collapses]
  • [scene cuts to Kettle resting in his bedroom]
  • Elder Kettle: Ow! My back! Oh, my babies! I fed them. I nursed them. I kept them alive. Without me, they're doomed.
  • Cuphead: Don't worry, Elder Kettle. We'll take care of your babies. Here. Let me fluff your pillow.
  • Mugman: Can I get you some soup?
  • Elder Kettle: You two are being awfully helpful. You're up to something. I've got my eye on... [He falls soundly asleep]
  • Cuphead: Out like a light. Let's scram and catch that picture show. [He and Mugman run out of the cottage, before Mugman realizes something and holds back onto Cuphead's handle] We gotta make tracks if we're gonna make the five o'clock!
  • Mugman: Kettle's garden. We promised we'd take care of his babies. Feed 'em. Nurture them. Kinda like how he took care of us when we were babies.
  • [Cuphead facepalms and groans]
  • Cuphead: Why'd you have to go and say it like that?
  • [The two walks back to the garden and watching it with bored expressions]
  • Cuphead: Blurgh. Nothing interesting ever happens around here.
  • [Three silhouettes sneak over into their yard while ominous music plays]
  • Mugman: [sighs] You can say that again.
  • [The two hear a rumble from the shed, and walks towards it, armed with a shovel and pitchfork. Cuphead then opens the shed to reveal the Root Pack feasting on their dirt supplies.]
  • Cuphead: Hey!
  • [The Root Pack look behind, in shock.]
  • Cuphead: All right, get out here! [The three bounce out of the shed] Okay, what gives?
  • Sal: We're real sorry, mister. We don't mean to bother youse. We's just some, uh, down-on-our-luck vegetables. I'm Sal. This is Ollie. And that's Chauncey.
  • Chauncey: [chuckles] Yeah. We don't got nowheres to call home.
  • Sal: We're, uh, orphans. Yeah, that's it. Orphans.
  • Ollie: Wait! We're orphans?! [Chauncey facepalms] That's so sad!
  • Sal: Hey! Ease up on the waterworks, will you? The last thing we need is you peeling all over the place. Then we'll all start crying!
  • Ollie: I'm sorry, Sal! It's just... You know, it's such a sad story!
  • Sal: Don't mind him. He gets, uh, emotional. Listen, all we're asking for is a little bit of soil to rest our weary roots. Just for one night. What do you say, eh?
  • Cuphead: We'd love to help, but we gotta keep an eye on Elder Kettle's boring, old vegetable garden.
  • Mugman: [groans] Elder Kettle takes his garden very seriously. They're his babies.
  • Cuphead: If anything happened to 'em...
  • Mugman: He'd be heartbroken.
  • [Sal gets an idea]
  • Sal: [snickers] Well, heck. No one takes better care of veggies than veggies.
  • Chauncey: Yeah. We can help you.
  • Mugman: You could?
  • Cuphead: You would?
  • [Sal walks the two brothers out of the yard]
  • Sal: Sure. Just let us handle that garden while the two of youse go have a fun night on the town.
  • Cuphead: Well, if you insist.
  • Mugman: Gee, thanks.
  • Cuphead: Swell, This is gonna be a great night.
  • Sal: [chuckling] Swell. This is gonna be a great night.
  • [cuts to nighttime where Cuphead and Mugman are just getting back to the yard after the show]
  • Cuphead: [laughing] That was dynamite!
  • Mugman: Especially the explosions. Wow. [music is heard] Sounds like someone's throwing a heck of a shindig.
  • Cuphead: Oh, a party. We should crash it. [Mugman gasps with a shocked look on his face] Mugsy?
  • [cuts to where the Root Pack are hosting a party in their yard while the theme for "Botanic Panic!" plays]
  • Mugman: Well, check it again! Mugman and Cuphead!
  • Eggplant: I'm telling you. You ain't on the list.
  • Mugman: But we live here!
  • Cuphead: All right, enough! Hey, tough stuff, don't look now, but your hat's on crooked. [He and Mugman walk into the yard while the Eggplant is distracted]
  • Eggplant: It is? Hey, I ain't wearing a hat.
  • Sal: And I just say, "What money?" [Cuphead walks up and confronts him]
  • Cuphead: Hey, you! This ain't what we agreed to!
  • Sal: Ah, lighten up. Let me introduce you to some friends of mine. The Heirloom sisters.
  • Cherry: I'm Cherry, and this is Brandywine. We're a couple of hot tomatoes.
  • Brandywine: Swell party. We was just about to bust the piñata. Wanna help?
  • Cuphead: No! Wait. Did you say piñata? I love piñatas! [He grabs the stick and runs towards the piñata before Mugman grabs him by the handle]
  • Mugman: Cuphead! We're not supposed to be enjoying this. We're upset, remember?
  • Cuphead: Oh, right.
  • [Mugman walks up onto the stage]
  • Mugman: Uh, excuse me. Quiet! Everybody, listen up!
  • [The music stops, as the vegetables look at him silently. Mugman then whimpers, before Cuphead also comes up onto the stage]
  • Cuphead: Yeah, you heard my brother! Beat it!
  • [crickets chirp as a vegetable coughs]
  • Chauncey: Hit it!
  • [The music starts playing again and the trumpets blow the brothers offstage and near Elder Kettle's garden]
  • Carrot: Hey, I'm parched. Wanna get a drink?
  • Carrot 2: Heck yeah!
  • [Both carrots slurp the moisture from Elder Kettle's plants, making them wither]
  • Mugman: They're killing Elder Kettle's babies!
  • Cuphead: We gotta bust this party up now!
  • Both: Mm-hm!
  • [the vegetables are still enjoying the time of their lives as Cuphead and Mugman dress up as scarecrow to scare them away, however, this gains the attention of a flock of crows which drive them away. The vegetables still party. Cuphead then goes to the cottage and uses the phone]
  • Cuphead: Operator, get me the police.
  • [The police arrive at the front of the yard]
  • Eggplant: You ain't on the list.
  • Police: Sorry, boys. We gave it a shot.
  • [Cuphead and Mugman's faces become disappointed, as the two policemen drive away]
  • Sal: Nice try, losers. This party ain't over till the sun comes up.
  • [The two sigh in defeat before Cuphead comes up with an idea]
  • Cuphead: "Till the sun comes up," eh?
  • [Cuphead lassos the moon and tugs on it with all his might, but fails]
  • Mugman: Uh, cock-a-doodle-doo?
  • [Cuts to where Ollie is happily having a shot of water, before the camera zooms toward the two brothers]
  • Cuphead: Well, I guess that's it.
  • Mugman: Kettle's garden is as good as dead.
  • Cuphead: And so are we.
  • Ollie: Dead? [hiccups] Gee, that sure is sad..
  • Cuphead: Yep. This garden is all our poor Elder Kettle has left. [the two smile as Cuphead gets another idea] Almost makes you wanna cry.
  • Ollie: That's just [hiccups] terrible! Poor Elder Kettle.
  • Cuphead: Without his garden, he's got nothing to live for.
  • Mugman: Not that he has much time left.
  • [Ollie whimpers]
  • Cuphead: You know, with him being so elderly and all.
  • [Ollie whimpers as he's about to cry]
  • Mugman: And did we mention that he's an orphan?
  • Ollie: AN ORPHAN?!
  • [Ollie finally wails out an ocean of tears as his skin peels, thus giving a nasty stench to the other vegetables as Cuphead and Mugman cross their arms and smile.]
  • Carrot: This guy. I love this guy.
  • [The two carrots sniff Ollie stench]
  • Carrot 2: Urgh! But I don't love this. [cries]
  • Carrot 1: Let's get outta here!
  • [the other vegetables are crying]
  • Sal: Cherry, Brandywine, wait!
  • Cherry: Fat chance, buster!
  • Brandywine: Yeah. This turned out to be a real pity party.
  • Sal: No! Come back! [cries]
  • [all of the vegetables are wailing to the point of the yard overflowing, causing the front gate to crack open and let everyone out. Fortunately, for the brothers on the other hand, the tear moisture waters Elder Kettle's plants and also grows more plants alongside with it]
  • Cuphead: [crying] Their tears watered Elder Kettle's babies!
  • Mugman: The day is saved!
  • Cuphead: Hooray!
  • [the two continue sobbing]
  • Sal: You just had to start blubbering, didn't you? [hits Ollie as the table beneath him collapses]
  • Cuphead: All right. Party's over.
  • Mugman: Yeah! Get out of here, you, uh, freeloaders!
  • Chauncey: You know something? I'm starting to get the feeling we ain't wanted. [snickers]
  • Sal: Well, then, maybe one last sip for the road.
  • [The three then plants themselves into the soil and start sucking up all the moisture from the plants, causing them to wither and die]
  • Both: [gasp] No!
  • [The Root Pack then satisfyingly sigh as Sal lets out a big belch. They then laugh at the two's misfortune, as Cuphead takes the withered tomato which then poofs into dust and blows away]
  • Cuphead: Maybe Elder Kettle won't notice?
  • Elder Kettle: [screams in disbelief and fixes his back] Yeah! My babies! You grew up to be so big!
  • [The three then take note and turn around]
  • Sal: Hear that, boys? This old jasper thinks we're his babies.
  • Chauncey: [snickers] Looks like we ain't orphans no more. [snickers]
  • Ollie: It's a happy ending.
  • [Elder Kettle then snickers]
  • Elder Kettle: Now it's time to Elder Kettle's famous baby stew! [snickers]
  • [The Root Pack then yell as they retreat]
