Big Top Je Ne Sais Quoi Pt. 1 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Sideshow Bob Sad Icon Jean-Pierre, the circus is dying. I need your very best at tonight’s performance if we’re to turn things around.
Circus Acrobat Sad Icon But I have lost the will to tumble and cavort. Without zese, the acrobat is meaningless.
Sideshow Bob Happy Icon Granted, sure, but wouldn't it be lovely to see this circus returned to its former glory?
Circus Acrobat Icon Glory is meaningless.
Sideshow Bob Icon A valid point. But I really, REALLY want to pack the audience full of Springfielders. So get out there and sell some tickets!
Circus Acrobat Icon I cannot do this. ‘Twould be humiliating to one such as I.
Sideshow Bob Annoyed Icon Ah but one could argue, perhaps, that your pride is meaningless?
Circus Acrobat Sad Icon Your logic, she is airtight. And very French. I will sell for you.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Sideshow Bob Happy Icon Well done, Jean-Pierre! You’ve sold five tickets.
Circus Acrobat Icon I found ze humiliation very instructive. I am made greater by my suffering.
Sideshow Bob Ominous Icon Of course. Say, I know a local family that numbers five. You didn’t sell those tickets to... the Simpsons, perchance?
Circus Acrobat Icon Why? Is zere something special about ze Simpsons?
Sideshow Bob Manic Icon Oh, no no no no no. I have no special plans for the Simpsons. Or their spirited son... Bart.

Big Top Je Ne Sais Quoi Pt. 2 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Sideshow Bob Annoyed Icon Jean-Pierre! What’s happened to your act?! You can’t just sit in a chair and smoke clove cigarettes!
Circus Acrobat Annoyed Icon I am not ze dancing bear, to perform for money.
Sideshow Bob Surprised Icon That’s EXACTLY what you are! Just... just swing on the trapeze a little!
Circus Acrobat Icon The trapeze is in ill repair. I could plummet to my death.
Sideshow Bob Annoyed Icon So?! I thought you said life was meaningless?!
Circus Acrobat Surprised Icon You are wonderful at turning my intellectual posing against me. Very well. I trapeze.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Circus Acrobat Surprised Icon How am I still alive? The rope, she break. And I fall. Only to discover ze net is made of zilly ztring and does nothing.
Sideshow Bob Happy Icon An unfortunate trained seal broke your fall. At any rate, the crowd loved it!
Sideshow Bob Ominous Icon Word of your exploits is certain to reach the Simpsons, and they will bring Bart to me.
Circus Acrobat Icon You realize when you say the name “Bart Simpson”, your eyes, zey, how you say, “bug out” a bit.
Sideshow Bob Icon Yes, well, never mind that. Perfectly sane of me. Let’s focus on putting you in even more peril tomorrow night!

Big Top Je Ne Sais Quoi Pt. 3 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Circus Acrobat Surprised Icon I am not qualified to tame ze lions!
Sideshow Bob Icon Nonsense, nothing to it. You and the lions will get along famously, provided you show not an ounce of fear.
Circus Acrobat Sad Icon Zere-in lies the problem. Zhough I long for ze oblivion of death, I am, at the same time, a humongous coward.
Sideshow Bob Happy Icon *gives a big push* In you go!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Circus Acrobat Surprised Icon It is true what zhey say about being mauled by lions: “ouch”.
Sideshow Bob Icon It was lucky I had these band aids for you, or that might have been serious.
Circus Acrobat Icon Tell me something: why is it so important to you to lure Bart Simpson to ze circus?
Sideshow Bob Ominous Icon So that I can kill him, of course!
Circus Acrobat Surprised Icon You wish to kill a child?
Sideshow Bob Manic Icon Bart is HARDLY a child. He’s ten. Well within legal killing age.

Big Top Je Ne Sais Quoi Pt. 4 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Circus Acrobat Annoyed Icon What did zhis Bart Simpson ever do to you?
Sideshow Bob Annoyed Icon Plenty. For starters, he never lets me kill him. VERY frustrating...
Circus Acrobat Icon Okaaaayyy.... But what did he do to deserve death in ze first place?
Sideshow Bob Surprised Icon Well, he... uh, that is... funny, I can’t really remember...
Sideshow Bob Icon I’m sure it will come to me. Keep working on your act. Time is short, and our cause is a noble one!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Circus Acrobat Annoyed Icon I have decided -- I will not use my circus skills to aid in Bart Simpson’s murder.
Sideshow Bob Ominous Icon Perhaps you will agree to use them if I point this gun at you?
Circus Acrobat Happy Icon Sir, if you are asking me to choose my life over zhat of an innocent child, the answer is an enthusiastic yes!

Big Top Je Ne Sais Quoi Pt. 5 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Sideshow Bob Happy Icon He’s here! Bart Simpson is in the audience! At last, my fingers will close ‘round his neck and choke the very life from--
Circus Acrobat Sad Icon Murder, she will not bring you ze happiness, friend.
Sideshow Bob Annoyed Icon “Friend”? If you don’t mind, I’d prefer to keep our relationship on a purely homicidal maniac/helpless pawn footing.
Circus Acrobat Sad Icon I would have hoped for more, but under ze circumstances, I will take what I can get.
Sideshow Bob Icon I thank you. Truly. Have a great show.
Circus Acrobat Icon Have a great murder.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Sideshow Bob Sad Icon Bart Simpson is gone! Just as I was to reach up from beneath his bleacher seat, the entire family left!
Circus Acrobat Icon Oui, monsieur. You forgot ze first rule of the circus: ze circus is dull, and anyone with half a brain walks out right quick.
Circus Acrobat Icon I think zhey had some alternate quests to complete, anyway. It is a busy month around here.
Sideshow Bob Sad Icon When?! When will I have my revenge!
Circus Acrobat Icon As soon as TV audiences consider it a funny story for a grown man to kill a little boy, zhen you will have your revenge.
Sideshow Bob Happy Icon Oh. So any day now!
