"I have a critical injury by injuries inflicted by Rat Capone's sneaky attack !", Gadget exclaimed. " Please, if I don't survive, Avenge my tragic killing !"

Dale looked at Gadget's wounds. "Ouch! That must really be painful! ", Dale said.

"Come on, Gadget, don't leave me, the team can't go on without your cleverness!", Dale pleaded. Eventually, Gadget's condition stablized. Monty thinks up a plan.
