RWBY Volume 2, Chapter 1: Best Day Ever | Rooster Teeth


*thud* [Girl]: Excuse me! Sorry! I’m not really from around here. Um, would you mind pointing me in the direction of this shop? [Boy]: I knew you were lost. [Girl]: Mercury! I will seriously pay you to shut up. [Mercury]: That’s not your money. [Girl]: But it could be yours for five minutes of silence. [Mercury]: Mmm… No deal. [Girl]: Hmph. Fine. [Mercury]: Whatever. You want me. [Mercury]: So how much farther? [Girl]: A few blocks. [Mercury]: Uhh, this place is so dull. [Girl]: I kinda like it. Tall buildings, diverse culture. [Mercury]: And nice, dopey people who are easy to pickpocket. [Girl]: That’s every city. [Mercury]: Oh Emerald! Master Thief! Please don’t take my money! I barely have enough to get by! You’re no fun today. *ding* [Man]: Be right there! Welcome to Tukson’s Book Trade! Home to every book
under the sun. How may –uh… How may I help you? [Mercury]: Just browsin’. [Emerald]: Actually, I was wondering, do you have any copies of The Thief and the Butcher? [Tukson] Yes, we do. [Emerald]: That’s great! [Tukson]: Would you… like a copy? [Emerald]: No. Just wondering. *slam* Oh! Oh! What about
Violet’s Garden in paperback? [Mercury]: He’s got it. Hardback too. [Emerald]: Ooh, options are nice. [Mercury]: Ehh, no pictures. *slam* Hey! Do you have any comics? [Tukson]: Near the front. [Emerald]: Oh! No, wait. What about Third Crusade? [Tukson]: Umm… I… don’t believe we carry that one. *slam* [Mercury]: Oh. [Emerald]: What was this place
called again? [Tukson]: Tukson’s Book Trade. [Emerald]: And… You’re Tukson? [Tukson]: That’s right. [Emerald]: So then I take it that you’re the one who came up with the
catchphrase? [Tukson]: Yes. [Mercury]: And what was it again? [Tukson]: “Tukson’s Book Trade: home to every book
under the sun.” [Mercury]: Except the Third Crusade. [Tukson]: It’s just a catchphrase. [Mercury]: It’s false advertising. [Emerald]: You shouldn’t make a promise you can’t keep, Tukson. I hear you’re
planning on leaving. Moving all the way to Vacuo. Your brothers in the White Fang wouldn’t be happy to hear that. And neither are we. You know who we are, don’t you? [Tukson]: Yes. [Emerald]: And you know why we’re here? [Tukson]: Yes. [Emerald]: So. Are you going to fight back? [Tukson]: Yes! [Emerald]: What’s with that? [Mercury]: I like the pictures. [Yang]: Whatcha doin? [Blake]: Nothing. Just going over notes from last semester. [Yang]: Lame! *thud, silverware clatters* [Ruby]: Sisters! Friends! Weiss… [Weiss]: Hey! [Ruby]: Four score and seven
minutes ago, I had a dream. [Yang]: This oughta be good. [Ruby]: A dream that one day, the four of us would
come together, as a team, and have the most fun anyone has ever had, ever! [Weiss]: Did you steal my binder? [Ruby]: I am not a crook. [Blake]: What are you talking about? [Ruby]: I’m talking about kicking off the semester with a bang! [Yang]: I always kick my semesters off with a Yang! Ehh!? Guys? Am I right? [Nora]: Boooooooo! [Ruby]: Look guys, its been a
good two weeks, and between more
exchange students arriving and the tournament at the end of the year, our second semester is
going to be great! But classes start
back up tomorrow. Which is why I’ve taken the time to schedule a series of
wonderful events for us today. [Weiss]: I don’t know whether to be proud or scared of what you
have in store. [Blake]: I don’t know. I think I might sit
this one out. [Weiss]: Sit out or not, I think however we
spend this last day we should do it as a team. [Nora]: I got it! [Weiss]: I for one think that– [Blue-Haired Boy]: Man, that’s harsh. [Sun]: So then we were
fighting side by side and she was super fast and I threw a banana at a guy, which sounds gross, but
it was awesome! [Blue-Hair]: Nice! [Sun]: Right? And the best part is she’s a Faunus! But that’s a secret, okay? [Blue-Hair]: Got it. [Sun]: And not a “I’m gonna
go tell Scarlet the second Sun turns
his back” secret! I’m talking secret secret! [Blue-Hair]: Woah, chill out man,
okay? I got it. I got it. [Sun]: You better. Pfft. I just don’t wanna
screw this up, ya know? The people here are the coolest! No offense to you guys. [Blue-Hair]: None taken. [Sun]: Okay, they’re just in here. I’m really excited for
you to meet them, so be cool, okay? You’re gonna be cool, right? [Blue-Hair]: Dude. [Sun]: Good point. [Students]: Food Fight! [Nora]: I’m queen of the castle! I’m queen of the castle! [Ruby]: Justice will be swift! Justice will be painful! It will be delicious! [Nora]: Off with their heads! [Ruby]: Yang! Turkey! [Ruby]: Weiss. Weiss! Don’t leave me! No! [Sun]: I love these guys. [Glynda]: Children, please. Do not play with your food. [Ozpin]: Let it go. [Glynda]: They’re supposed to be the defenders of the world. [Ozpin]: And they will be. But right now they’re
still children. So why not let them
play the part? After all– it isn’t a role they’ll
have forever. [Roman]: Oh look, she sent
the kids again. This is turning out just
like the divorce. [Emerald]: Ugh. Spare us the thought of
you procreating. [Roman]: That was a joke. And this just might tell me where you two have been all day. [Emerald]: What? [Roman]: I’m a professional sweetheart. Pay attention, maybe you’ll learn something. Why do you have this address? [Emerald]: Wouldn’t you like to know? [Roman]: Yeah, I would. Now, where have you been all day? [Mercury]: Cleaning up your problems. One of them at least. [Roman]: I had that under control. [Mercury]: Two packed bags and a ticket out of Vale said otherwise. [Roman]: Listen you little punk, If it were up to me I would take you and your little
street-rat friend here, and I would– [Woman]: Do what, Roman? [Roman]: I’d uh… Not kill them? [Emerald]: Cinder! [Cinder]: I thought I made it clear that you were to eliminate the would-be runaway. [Roman]: I was going to! [Emerald]: He was going to escape to Vacuo. Mercury and I decided to take it upon ourselves to kill the rat. [Mercury]: I think he was some sort
of cat, actually. [Emerald]: What, like a puma? [Mercury]: Yeah, there ya go. [Cinder]: Quiet. Did I not specifically
instruct you two to keep your hands clean
while in Vale? [Emerald]: I just thought– [Cinder]: Don’t think. Obey. [Emerald]: Yes ma’am. It won’t happen again. [Cinder]: And you. Why wasn’t this job done sooner? [Roman]: Uh… Eh? Ehhhh? EHHHHHHHHHH!? Sorry if I’ve been a little busy stealing every speck of Dust
in the kingdom! [Mercury]: You’re an inspiration to every punk with a gun
and a ski-mask. [Roman]: Look around, kid. I’ve got this town
running scared. Police camping out at
every corner. Dust prices through the roof. And we’re sitting pretty in an old warehouse with more Dust crystals, vials,
and rounds than we know what to do with. Speaking of which. If you guys wouldn’t mind filling me in on your
grand-master plan, it might actually make
my next string of robberies go a
little smoother. [Cinder]: Oh, Roman. Have a little faith. You’ll know what you need when you need to know it. Besides. We’re done with Dust. [Roman]: Okay. Then what now? [Cinder]: We’re moving. Have the White Fang clear out this building. I’ll send you details and coordinates tonight. [Roman]: Coordinates? [Cinder]: We’re proceeding to phase two. There’s a point where it tips There’s a point where it breaks There’s a point where it bends and a point we just can’t take Anymore There’s a line that we’ll cross and there’s no return There’s a time and a place No bridges left to burn Anymore We can’t just wait with
lives at stake Until they think we’re ready Our enemies are gathering The storm is growing deadly Now it’s time to say goodbye To the things we loved And the innocence of youth How the time seemed to fly From our carefree lives and the solitude and
peace we always knew

  1. Imagine your one of the teachers there, who is a personal trainer for Team RWBY ( kinda like with a Kakashi sensei and team 7 relationship kind of thing ), you were suppose to stop the food fight but instead, you just stand there and admired your students brilliant teamwork and excellent combat skills. Even if they cause trouble, you can't help but feel very proud of your best students growth. Without a care in the world, especially with Glynda walking in, you just lift up head high with pride and say, “Those are my girls" or “ I'm so proud of you guys ".

    Just sharing my point of view to all of you guys. Team RWBY rules.

  2. Everyone’s talking about the food fight while I’m here finding it impossible to get over Roman’s background movements at 12:08

  3. Ruby: "Four score and seven minutes ago…"
    Me: You stole that from Abraham Lincoln in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, didn't you?

  4. let's all be completely honest with ourselves; this episode was filler, but honestly probably the best filler episode that has ever existed in the history of filler episodes

  5. in all honestly though, does anyone ever wonder where that metal bar that nora grabbed came from? i mean, i didn't see any other ones around, and it's not like there was a flag hanging off of it or anything, kinda almost as if it was just existing so nora could grab it hmmm

  6. Anybody who does not share my thoughts about Weiss will be sacrificed:
    She is best girl and deserves to hqve me as a slave

  7. Anybody noticed that during the food fight, they used their original weapons but as food?
    Like hammers or grappling hooks.

  8. Ozpin: "Right now they're still children, let them play the part.
    Also Ozpin: invades the mind of a 14 year old boy and tells him to go save the world

  9. Let's all take a moment here and give Juane some awards, he is one of the weaker team members,(at this point in time) and is participating in the most dangerous food fight in history and is not backing down.

  10. "But right now they're still children. So why not let them play the part? After all, this isn't a role they'll have forever."

    I never realized how important that line was. It was foreshadowing the lives of our characters after the events of V3.

  11. no one will talk about how long Yang flys away??? she just fly for like 2 minuts, GUUUUYS SKASKASKAK AND SHE FALLS ON THE GROUND ASKAKSKASK LIKE NOTING HAPPENED AND "LIKE"
