During production, director Oz shot a 23-minute ending. However, after receiving a negative reception from test audiences, the ending had to be rewritten and re-shot for the theatrical release with a "happier ending." For the theatrical film, see it here

As Black and Emma go to the phone that was ringing, Emma calls someone (who's actually Bass.EXE himself)

Emma: Hello?

Bass.EXE: ♪Hey little lady, hello♪

Emma: Who... Who said that?

Bass.EXE: ♪You're lookin's cute as can be♪

Black: is somebody in there?

Bass.EXE: ♪You're lookin' mighty sweet♪

Emma and Black: Dylan!

Bass.EXE: No, I ain't Dylan. It's me!

Emma and Black looks from their house and sees Bass.EXE roaming in the pet store

Emma: Oh my gosh.

Black and Emma goes into the pet store, looking in confusion

Emma: I... I don't believe it.

Bass.EXE: Believe it, baby. It's alive.

Black: Are we dreaming this?

Bass.EXE: No, and you ain't in Kansas neither.

Emma: Something's very wrong here.

Bass.EXE: Oh, relax and go with it fellas. Do me a favor, will you dylanuses?

Black: A favor?

Bass.EXE: I needs some water in the worst way. Look at my body, I'm skinny, I'm a gonner honey! ♪Come on and give me a drink♪

Emma: I don't know if we should...

Bass.EXE: ♪Hey little baby be nice♪

Black: You just want water, right?

Bass.EXE: ♪Sure do, I'll drink it straight♪

Emma: Aww, your body is skinny. Poor thing.

Bass.EXE: ♪Don't need no glass nor ice♪

Emma: I'll get the can!

Bass.EXE: ♪Don't need no twist of lime♪

Emma: Here we go...

Bass.EXE: And now it's suppertime! *grabs Emma and Black & starts to bite them*

Black and Emma: *screams*

Bass.EXE: *does an evil laughter* Oh, relax fellas, it'll be easy. Come join your friends, dentist Otis and Mr. Maxie, they're my own kind now. *continues to laugh evily*

Dylan: *comes and tries to save Black and Emma* Get off of them! Get off of them! *pulls Black and Emma away from Bass.EXE

Bass.EXE: *cries loudly*

Dylan: Black. Emma. Are you guys ok?

Emma: Yes. No! *falls over*

Black: *also falls over*

Dylan: *kneels down* Don't die, Black and Emma. Please don't die.

Black: You know. The NetNavi said the strangest thing.

Dylan: What?

Emma: Otis and Mr. Maxie were already killed.

Dylan: It's true. I did it. I feed them to it. *cries a little*

Emma: And that's what made it so big & strong and made you famous?

Dylan: I've done terrible things, but not to you guys, never to you guys.

Emma: But... I want you to, Dylan.

Dylan: Huh?

Black: When we die... which will be in shortly, I want you put us into the NetNavi's cage and get our blood sucked up by the NetNavi, and soon you'll get all the wonderful things you deserved.

Dylan: You don't know what you guys are saying.

  • The song "Somewhere that's dark" plays*

Emma: But I do, it's one gift that we can give you, so in the way, we will always be together. ♪You will wash my armor and smell my sweet prefume. You'll feed us and care for us. You'll see us grow and change♪

Black: ♪We're feeling strangely happy now contented and serene. Oh, don't you see. Finally we'll be...♪

Black and Emma: ♪Somewhere... that's... dark♪ *dies*

Dylan: *runs out, almost gets hit by a car*

Car driver: Hey! Watch it!

Dylan runs to the top of one of the nearby buildings and tries to comit suicide by jumping off the building, but Patrick Dinkley stops him by interupting

Patrick: Dylan? Oh, Dylan! The APSA, Animal Pet Species Agreement. I wanna show you something.

Dylan: I'm not interested!

Patrick: Ahh, but you will be. Look. Look! I took the samples from the amazing creature of yours.

Dylan: *looks at the baby Bass.EXE-like NetNavi in fear, as the baby NetNavi silently smiles back at Dylan*

Patrick: The designs boys did the package. Cute, huh? Get the idea? Imagine this, dylanus, we take armor cuttings, develop little Bass.EXEs and sell them to pet shops across the nation. Pretty soon every household in America could have one.

Dylan: *the quote "could have one" is heard four times as it slowly fades*

Patrick: Imagine this buddy, little Bass.EXEs everywhere.

Dylan: *the quote "everywhere" is heard five times as it slowly fades*

Patrick: This could be bigger than the Hula-Hoops!

Dylan: *the quote "than the Hula-Hoops" is heard three times as it slowly fades*

Patrick: What do you say, Mr. Dylan?

Dylan: *stares in fear and imagines hearing Bass.EXE clone's evil laughter, then he runs off*

Patrick: Hey, Mr. Dylan. Mr. Dylan! Dylan! Hey! We don't have to deal with you, you know? That gosh darn NetNavis is practically domain! You ask our lawyers!

Dylan: *heads back into the pet store* Every household of America. Thousands of you eating! That's what you had in mind all along, isn't it?!

Bass.EXE: No, shoot Sherlock!
