  • Episode Description
  • Alvin gets a registered letter from the Publishing Warehouse stating he is a winner. He either can take $500 or the mystery prize (which might end up to be a million dollars or nothing more than a free lunch), but has to call by 6:00 p.m. to decide. So Simon uses his experimental time machine to get a glimpse into what the future holds for the gang if Alvin takes the $500 or the mystery prize.moreless

    • Alvin Jr.: Remember the good old days, Mother, when we had all the Christmas beans we could eat? Brittany: Yes. But we've used up all our savings. And your father is too sick to work. Alvin Jr.: (in tears) Because of that Mystery Prize he chose when you guys were young. Alvin Jr. 2: If he hadn't gotten that food poisoning from the free lunch... Alvin Jr.: Which weakened his vocal cords year after year... Brittany: (in tears) He would never have had to give up his singing career! (furiously) I told him to take the cash! But would he listen?! NO!!!

    • (in Simon's time machine's vision of the future if Alvin chooses the $500 cash prize, Theodore and Eleanor enter Alvin's mansion, where Alvin and Brittany's kids rush in) Alvin Jr.: Uncle Theodore! Aunt Eleanor! Look what Daddy gave us! Diamond guitars! Alvin Jr. 2: And ruby picks! Alvin: What else does a rich rock star give his sons for their birthdays? Brittany: (shows everyone a ring with a huge diamond) And look what Alvin gave me. A 2-pound emerald! Oh! Alvin is just so generous! Alvin: Hey, it's easy when you're filthy rich.

    • Brittany: What if the Mystery Prize is nothing but a stupid free lunch?! I want... I want the mansion! And the diamonds! (checks Alvin's watch) It's 5:45. Call them! NOW!! (she whacks Simon's time machine back into shape)

    • (Alvin tries to open the locked door to the basement, where Simon is working) Alvin: Simon! Simon: Not now, Alvin! I'm working on my time machine. Alvin: Brittany! (he zips into the Chipettes' house) Alvin: Brittany, I need your advice! (he walks up to the Chipettes, who are having a drink at the table) Brittany: Take the cash. Alvin: Right. I'll call right now, and tell them that I don't want the Mystery Prize. I want the $500. (he rushes up to the phone and dials the number, but the Chipettes cut in) Brittany: Wait! What if the Mystery Prize is millions?! Alvin: (dollar signs appear in his eyes) Millions?! Jeanette and Eleanor: But what if it isn't? Alvin: But what if it is?! What do I do?! Simon! (he rushes back home)

    • Alvin: Theodore! Listen to this! I'm a winner in the Publishing Warehouse Sweepstakes! It says here that I can either choose $500 in cash or a Mystery Prize. The Mystery Prize may be anything from lunch for 4 to $1,000,000 or more. Theodore, what should I do? Take the cash or the Mystery Prize? Theodore: The Mystery Prize. Alvin: But what if it turns out to be nothing but a free meal? Theodore: What's wrong with a free meal? (Alvin sighs)
