    Boy: (quietly) Shh. You must be quiet.
    (Two of Mr. Chow's agents walk onto the deck above them)
    Agent 1: Do you see anyone? I heard a noise.
    Agent 2: There's no one out here. It must've been a cat.
    Agent 1: Ooh, let's hope so. We must be sure no one has followed Dr. Claw to Mr. Chow's floating nest.
    (They wait till the agents leave. The boy removes his hat)
    Boy: A thousand pardons. I was afraid the agents of Mr. Chow would see you.
    (Penny blushes at the boy who saved her)
    Penny: But who are you?
    Boy: I am the grandson of your uncle's Hong Kong contact. Mr. Chow is a very dangerous man. I wanted to make sure you were safe.
    Penny: Gee, thanks. But now I'm afraid Uncle Gadget may need our help.
    Boy: In that case, we'd better hurry.
    Penny: You're right. If Dr. Claw and Mr. Chow complete their partnership in evil, it could be disaster!
