Dialogue Edit

A Tough Nut to Crack Pt. 1 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Marge Scared Icon Homer, what happened to your head?
Homer Hurt Icon Oh, it's nothing. Maggie dropped a bowling ball on my head.
Marge Surprised Icon What?!
Homer Hurt Icon It was an accident -- it rolled off the shelf. I mean, Maggie had to take it out of the bag and push it, but I blame the laws of gravity.
Marge Serious Icon This was no accident! Bringing all these cartoon characters to life is a bad influence on the kids!
Professor Frink Icon Don't you worry, Marge. I'm way ahead of you on this and I have the perfect solution.
Marge Serious Icon You're going to get rid of the cartoons you brought to life?
Professor Frink Icon Don't be SILLY. I'm going to bring another character to life: Disapproving Squirrel!

Unlocks Disapproving Squirrel.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Marge Icon See? Disapproving Squirrel's not very funny, or friendly, but she proves you don't have to be violent just because you're a cartoon.
Marge Icon And she kept everyone on their best behavior.
Professor Frink Icon Yes, in many ways, the judgmental stare is even more cutting than an axe to the cabeza, as it were.
Disapproving Squirrel Icon ...!
Professor Frink Icon See what I mean?

A Tough Nut to Crack Pt. 2 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Itchy Happy Icon Hey Scratchy, now that I've fed your eyeballs to that bird, you're... EAGLEY blind!
Disapproving Squirrel Icon Don't do that!
Itchy Confused Icon But that's in the script.
Scratchy Eyeless Icon Believe me I don't like it either, but we're professionals.
Disapproving Squirrel Angry Icon No, no, no! No more violence!
Itchy Annoyed Icon Step aside, squirrel, we've got a very important job to do. Now where's my mallet so I can play croquet with Scratchy's eyes.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Itchy Annoyed Icon You ruined the scene!
Scratchy Eyeless Icon And you scared away the eagle. Now I'm never gonna find my eyes!
Disapproving Squirrel Angry Icon No! No violence!
Itchy Sad Icon Cartoons with no violence are no fun! I'm gonna go stab ketchup bottles in my trailer and pretend it's blood.

A Tough Nut to Crack Pt. 3 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Lisa Annoyed Icon *groans* These new Itchy & Scratchy cartoons are boring! Where's Itchy?!
Marge Icon That Disapproving Squirrel isn't that bad, is she?
Lisa Annoyed Icon She's worse than Poochie! All she does is scold Scratchy to balance his check book and clean the lint out of his dryer...
Lisa Confused Icon Why does a cat have a dryer?!
Bart Laughing Icon I don't know, it is kind of funny to see her boss Scratchy around like that.
Marge Happy Icon See? She doesn't ruin the show.

Job start Edit

Disapproving Squirrel starts Ruining the Itchy & Scratchy Show.

Character Dialogue
Disapproving Squirrel Icon Your sock drawer is a mess, Scratchy!
Scratchy Surprised Icon I don't wear socks.
Disapproving Squirrel Icon Before you go out to play, I want you to iron and fold every pair, twice.
Disapproving Squirrel Happy Icon A well-starched pair of socks is a step in the right direction.
Scratchy Happy Icon *laughs* ...That was a cue for me to laugh at your joke, right?
Disapproving Squirrel Angry Icon Less laughing, more starching!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Lisa Sad Icon Well, that didn't take long. How many times can one show get ruined?
Bart Icon It was funny when she made him iron his socks at least.
Marge Surprised Icon *gasp* I was hoping a good role model would help you shape up, not turn you into a completely different person.
Marge Serious Icon That squirrel has got to go before you turn into *shudder* the Flanders kids!

A Tough Nut to Crack Pt. 4 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Quimby Icon Order! We've had a number of complaints about this "Disapproving Squirrel”. All from the same person: Marge Simpson.
Marge Serious Icon I don't like the way that squirrel is making my kids act!
Helen Lovejoy Yay Icon Really now Marge, I would have thought you'd be in favor of Disapproving Squirrel. The two of you could practically be twins.
Marge Surprised Icon What? We have nothing in common.
Homer Icon You do sorta have the same hair, and make the same face when you scold me.
Disapproving Squirrel Angry Icon Don't do that!
Homer Laughing Icon *chuckles* See? I almost kissed the squirrel thinking it was you! Do it again!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Quimby Laughing Icon Yes, I can, er, really see the resemblance. I don't know whose vote to solicit.
Artie Ziff Happy Icon Is that squirrel single??
Dr. Hibbert Happy Icon *holds up x-rays* Even the bone structure is the same!
Marge Serious Icon That squirrel and I are nothing alike! I'll prove it to you.

A Tough Nut to Crack Pt. 5 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Disapproving Squirrel Angry Icon Don't do that! Don't do that!
Marge Angry Icon No YOU don't do that! Don't tell me what to do!
Marge Sad Icon Is this really what everyone thinks I'm like when I give them sensible advice?
Disapproving Squirrel Angry Icon Don't do that!
Marge Serious Icon I am NOT some ridiculous, killjoy nag. And my hair looks nothing like yours!
Disapproving Squirrel Happy Icon Your hair is the only thing about you I don't disapprove of.
Marge Angry Icon That does it! I won't be mocked by some demented cartoon. Get out! GET OUT!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Disapproving Squirrel Angry Icon I don't need any of you! You're all beneath me, you don't even deserve my scorn.
Selma Icon Now there's a girl after my own heart. *smoker's cough*
Patty Happy Icon I agree. How would you like a job over at the DMV? Best place in town to judge all the nuts.
