Sam, Part I
March 12, 2005
Teleplay by: Bruce Kalish
Directed by: Charlie Haskell
A young boy, Sam, tries to join a group of boys playing basketball. Sam is rejected by the group and instead of giving them their ball back, he uses his teleportation ability to have the ball appear elsewhere. As the group wonders how Sam did that, Sam tells them that they should have let me play. Sam walks away and hears a voice coming from a doll. Mora is using her doll, Cindy Sunshine, to talk to Sam. Sam is unsure at first, but Cindy Sunshine's sympathy over Sam's plight wins him over. At headquarters, the Rangers are relaxing. Bridge is standing on his head and has a thought that he shares with the group. Bridge thinks it's no conscience that they each have special abilities and happen to be Power Rangers. Syd, Z, and Jack all considered the possibility of what Bridge is saying, while Sky dismisses it as simply being Bridge. Z defends Bridge and Sky calls Z a freak. The alarm goes off and Kat sends the Rangers to stop a giant robot. The Rangers morphed and entered their Delta Runners. They tried to take down a giant robot with a monster, Bugglesworth, inside. The Rangers have a difficult time with the robot. Bugglesworth manages to make a building disappear. Within her zord, Z spots Sam and realizes that it is Sam who has made the building disappear. Bugglesworth decides he has had enough and with Sam's help, they disappear. Z leaps out of her delta runner and goes after Sam. The rest of the Rangers return to headquarters where they tell Commander Cruger what has happen. Commander Cruger has a hard time believing a building just disappeared and questions where Z is. Sky tells Commander Cruger that Z went after a small boy that she believed made the building disappear. Meanwhile, Z searches Newtech city for Sam and finds him surrounded by the earlier basketball group of boys. Sam is on the ground as the boys circle him and threaten him is he does not demonstrate his power again. Z walks up behind the boys and with a couple of words, Z has the boys running away. Z tries to befriend Sam and offers to treat his wound on his knee. Sam reluctantly lets Z treat his knee. Z is unaware that a couple of Krybots are literally right above her.
Sam sees the Krybots and stops them using his teleportation ability. Z notices Sam's face and looks above - surprised to see Krybots suspended in mid-air. Bugglesworth calls out to Sam and by the time Z turns around Sam is gone. Z answers her communicator - it's the rest of the Rangers - they found the building. The Rangers walk to the beach, where the building has been found. They are all awestruck at the sight of the building at the beach, except Bridge who is hungry. The Rangers enter the building and find no one inside. Z and Jack pick up a couple of dolls and Z asks Bridge if he can get a reading. Bridge holds the dolls and the reading he receives is that Bugglesworth has been changing people to dolls. The Rangers returns to headquarters and enter the command center. Z and Sky are arguing as they still down. Commander Cruger tells them to stop and asks them what do they know. The Rangers list what they know, a building disappears and reappears and people are being turned into dolls. Sky had taken one to Kat for to analyze. Z tells them of Sam - who controlled the robot, but Sky does not believe it. Z tells them of what happen with her and the Krybots and tells them that Sam has powers. Sky tells the group that they have powers, but use them for good. Z replies that maybe Sam doesn't know the difference yet. The alarms sounds and Kat tells them that the robot is back in the city. The Rangers morph and form the megazord immediately. The Rangers begin to battle the robot. The Rangers try to handcuff the robot, but Sam handcuffs the megazord instead. Z spots Sam and leaves the zord and demorphs. Sky manages to get rid of the handcuffs on the zord. Z chases after Sam, calling out to him to stop. Sam manages to lose Z. Sam sits on a wall with Cindy Sunshine. Cindy Sunshine asks Sam why he had left and Sam tells her that he got scared. Cindy Sunshine tells Sam that the Power Rangers are bad people and she can understand why Sam got scared. A laser goes off and Cindy Sunshine is knocked off the wall. Z had fired at the laser. Z tells Sam that she never like dolls. Z approaches Sam slowly and tells him that she understands how he feels. Z demonstrates her cloning ability to Sam and Sam finally shakes her hand and tells her his name. Z also tells Sam that she understands how Sam feels about having no friends and doing anything to have one. The rest of the Rangers appear and Sam becomes angry - telling Z that she does have friends. The Rangers return to headquarters and Bridge tries to get a reading from Cindy Sunshine. Bridge gets a reading that Sam is at a junkyard and Cindy Sunshine disappears from his hands. Z asks Commander Cruger if she can look for Sam and Commander Cruger tells her she can, but to take Jack. Z and Jack leave. Kat and Boom enter the command center with the two dolls found in the building. Kat tells Commander Cruger it's urgent that the dolls are changed back to humans while Boom plays with the dolls. Z and Jack arrive at the junk yard and they found Sam. Sam doesn't want anything to do with Z and Z has Jack demonstrated his special ability. Sam is not impressed and tells them that they have each other. Z tells Sam that they found each other and now they have found him. Bugglesworth appears with Cindy Sunshine and Cindy Sunshine tells Sam that to remember he is listening to the girl that scorched her. Sam walks over to Bugglesworth and Cindy Sunshine. Bugglesworth releases another monster - Orangehead. Z and Jack have difficulty battling Orangehead and eventually have to morph. Sam watches stunned. Z manages to break free of Orangehead and races toward Sam. Z pleads with Sam to come with her, but Bugglesworth tells her not to worry, that they will take care of Sam. Jack is battling Orangehead and gets thrown. Z sees that Jack is in trouble and goes to his aid. Z and Jack continue to battle Orangehead and end up on the ground. Z tells Jack that they have to help Sam. Sam hears this and steps out from behind Bugglesworth.
