Logline

Cyborg fixes up the T-Car so he can take the team on a ... ROAD TRIP![1]

Synopsis

Cyborg announces the new T-Car

The Teen Titans trace the smell to Cyborg's new and improved T-Car.

The Teen Titans, except Cyborg, are relaxing on the couch when Robin picks up on a strange smell. The other Titans smell it too and compliment the fragrance. Beast Boy, in an attempt to discover its origin, transforms into a dog and leads the Titans across the hall, eventually pinpointing the location at Cyborg's room. Upon entering, they find an object concealed by a blanket which Raven deduces to be the source of the smell. Robin attempts to peek under the blanket, but is stopped by Cyborg who demands to know what they are doing. Starfire informs Cyborg that they're tracking a smell which Cyborg realizes must be the T-Car's new car smell. He explains that he's been modifying the T-Car and begins to caress it. Starfire remarks that Cyborg looks like he holds more love for the car than to his teammates which Cyborg agrees to saying they're garbage compared to the car. Cyborg recounts a fake origin story in which he found the car abandoned and taught him karate, how to speak Spanish, and how to become a man. After Starfire attempts to communicate with the car in Spanish, Robin informs her that it was a lie. Cyborg remarks that it feels true, thus making it true for him.

He suggests a road trip so that the others can see what great a car the T-Car really is, but the others refuse. Cyborg persuades his teammates by promising snacks, bonding as teammates, and learning life lessons. Beast Boy and Robin agree, but Starfire wonders where they would go. Cyborg informs her that they'll go from Point A to Point B, but that a road trip isn't about the destination, but the journey. Starfire asks if it's a magical journey and Cyborg agrees, convincing her. The Titans look at Raven and she asks if she could continue reading her book. Cyborg informs her that she make get carsick, but that she could. Raven agrees to go and the Titans embark on the road trip.

Drenched unamsued H.I.V.E.

For "stealing", the H.I.V.E. Five are doused by water by the T-Car.

Cyborg promises that by the end of the road trip, the Titans would learn to love the T-Car as much as he does. As they prepare to leave Jump City, Robin spots the H.I.V.E. Five at a gas station and Cyborg falsely assumes that they are stealing, thus interrupting the road trip. He turns back and sprays water onto the ground and uses the car to douse them with water. As they continue, Robin and Cyborg cheer for their success and Starfire cheers as well while Raven remarks that it was all right. As they leave Jump City, Beast Boy announces that he loves road trips.

Starfire misunderstands slugbug

Starfire misunderstands slugbug and repeatedly punches Robin.

Three hours later, Cyborg asks how the Titans feel about the road trip. Beast Boy is bored due to running out of snacks, Robin notes the lack of team bonding, Starfire mentions that she hasn't seen a fairy or wizard on the magical journey, and Raven says that she's starting to feel carsick. Cyborg tells her to stop reading in the car and informs the others that road trips get boring, but that that is why road games were invented. Starfire becomes horrified by the mention of road games recalling a time in which she threw a ball for Beast Boy when he was transformed as a dog and was hit by a car. Cyborg tells her that it wasn't that type of game. Beast Boy suggests playing slugbug and looks out the window for a bug. Upon spotting one, he punches Robin in the arm and Starfire wonders why he would do such a thing. Robin explains that the point of the game is to spot a Bug and punch someone in the arm once spotted. Starfire mistakes a Bug for an actual bug and punches Robin in the arm. A bug crashes into the windshield and Starfire punches Robin in the face. A horde of insects fly by with Starfire punching Robin for each one as he tries to explain the actual rules of the game. He attempts to change the game to I Spy, but Starfire interrupts by spotting another bug and punching him.

Vomit filled T-Car

Cyborg grows frustrated with the Teen Titans during the road trip.

Robin shakes off his injuries upon spotting the H.I.V.E. Five on the side of the road. Cyborg notices that they're having car trouble and offers to help them as they're superheroes. They pull over and Cyborg asks Gizmo if he wants a lift to a mechanic. Gizmo agrees, calling them nice and attempts to enter the vehicle only for Cyborg to drive away. The process continues until the T-Car drives off, smothering Gizmo with a cloud of dirt. Beast Boy repeats that he loves road trips. Later, Beast Boy repeats that he's bored again. Robin asks if they could return to the tower, but Cyborg declines, saying that they're travelling from Point A to Point B. Robin turns on the music and begins dancing along until Cyborg turns it off, exclaiming that no one wants to see him get his groove on. The two argue for the radio, causing the car to swerve back and forth. Raven turns green as Starfire spots another bug and punches Beast Boy. Raven vomits and Cyborg yells at the Titans if they wanted him to stop the car and walk home.

Titans on a street

After having enough of the road, the Teen Titans decide to walk home until Cyborg convinces them otherwise.

The Titans begin walking and Cyborg reveals that it was just an empty threat. However, the others bid him farewell and continue walking. Cyborg taunts them for missing hours 12 and 16 and returns to the car. On his way to Point B, Cyborg plays slugbug by punching himself and prepares to play I Spy before realizing that he spots a lonely Titan, not having a good road trip. The Titans grow weaker and sweat for walking in the sun. Cyborg approaches them and offers them a ride back to the tower, but they refuse. He admits to them that he only wanted them to see how great the car was like he did. The Titans board the car and prepare to head home. However, Cyborg spots the H.I.V.E. Monster Truck and Raven remarks that the H.I.V.E. appear angry. Robin urges Cyborg to get them out of there and he turns around.

T-Car versus H.I.V.E. Monster Truck

After suffering from abuse by the Teen Titans, the H.I.V.E. Five pursue them for revenge.

The monster truck fires lasers at the T-Car, but Cyborg swerves to avoid them. It gains on the T-Car, and Cyborg decides that he'll need all of the Titans' help which Robin deduces to mean team bonding. Cyborg tells Starfire to watch the magic and activates a turbo boost to open the distance. However, the monster truck does the same and quickly catches up to them. Cyborg drops spikes onto the road, but the wheels extend and the car passes over the spikes. He releases a smoke machine to smother the H.I.V.E.'s view, but the car increases, just over the smog. They drive to the side of the car and release a laser to fire at them. Cyborg dodges the first few blasts and decides to go on autopilot. A device unscrews his head from his body and places him in a dome where he has access to lasers. He manages to destroy the H.I.V.E.'s laser, but they reveal a bazooka. Cyborg returns to his body and tells Beast Boy that he'll need to dismantle the weapon. Beast Boy admits that he doesn't have the strength and Cyborg opens a secret compartment in the back of his seat, stuffed with snacks. Beast Boy eats them all, transforms into a gorilla, and punches the bazooka, separating it from the monster truck. He returns to the car as the H.I.V.E. releases another laser to fire at them. Raven asks how she could help and Cyborg tells her to keep reading. As he swerves to avoid the blasts, Raven grows carsick and vomits out the window, splattering the H.I.V.E.'s windshield. They drive off the side of a road and crash into a rock, exploding and causing the T-Car to drift to a stop.

Point B

The Teen Titans decide to live at Point B to avoid another road trip.

The Titans cheer at their success and Robin tells Cyborg that the road trip was fun even if they didn't get to Point B. Cyborg checks the GPS and announces that they arrived at their destination. Robin looks around, but reports that he only sees more road. Cyborg reminds him that it's about the journey, not the destination. Beast Boy happily says that the road trip is finally over, but Cyborg reminds him that they still have to go back to Point A which he says is the best part of a road trip. However, the Titans disembark from the car and inform him that they're never doing that again. Starfire gestures to a tower in the shape of a B and tells Cyborg that they live there now.
