Dialogue Edit

Fair-Weather Father Pt. 1 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Carl Confused Icon Bart, you want to do your Black History Month report on me? But why?
Bart Sweet Icon You're the black person I most admire.
Carl Surprised Icon Really?
Bart Happy Icon Totally! You've saved my dad's life a million times by turning him on his side when he was passed out.
Carl Confused Icon Are you sure there isn't someone you admire more? Thurgood Marshall? Nelson Mandela? The cool bad guy from Black Panther?
Bart Whatever Icon Those guys are great, but I don't want to research. So let's do this thing already! I'm brokering a fireworks deal with Nelson in half an hour.
Carl Happy Icon Eh, why not? But I can't tell the story of my life without talking about the guy who got me here.
Carl Confused Icon My deadbeat dad, Carl Sr. The spelunker, excavator, and hyper-capitalist founder of the Carl's Dad Caverns.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Carl Sad Icon No hugs, no games of catch, and he never once took me to a father-son dance.
Carl Sad Icon *sniff* Lucky for me I was adopted by an Icelandic family that showed me what true love is.
Carl Annoyed Icon Because all Carl Sr. cared about was making a buck off those dusty old caverns.
Bart Icon Wow. Your dad sounds a lot like that rich old jerk from There Will Be Blood.
Carl Confused Icon Aren't you a little young for that movie?
Bart Smug Icon Eh, I got suckered in by the title.
Carl Annoyed Icon Me too. They should've called it There Will Eventually Be Blood After Two and a Half Hours.
Bart Icon You wanna watch it again on my phone?
Carl Happy Icon Hell yeah.

Fair-Weather Father Pt. 2 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Bart Happy Icon Haha. "I'm finished!" He sure was finished! Finished beatin' that priest to death! Hey, what's wrong?
Carl Sad Icon *sigh* That complex epic about greed and the monsters it makes of men has got me thinking about my dad and his cavern. I avoided that place for years.
Bart Sad Icon So you haven't been back since you were a kid?
Carl Icon Oh, I went back alright. About five or six years ago...
Bart Confused Icon Is this another flashback? Cuz I've got this fireworks thing with Nelson...

Character Dialogue
God Icon Go to the caverns. Find your purpose.
Carl Surprised Icon Hey Moe, I think that radon leak is back!
Moe Icon Nah. The canary's still alive. See, he's pecking at that dead mouse in his cage.
God Happy Icon Go to the caverns. Find your purpose.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Carl Icon Hey fellas, when's the last time you went down to the caverns?
Lenny Icon They closed 'em down after that stalagmite shish kabob'd those Amish kids on their Rumspringa, remember?
Moe Icon Yeah, it's been boarded up ever since.
Carl Icon Hmm. Maybe I should go down there.
God Annoyed Icon No doy. That's what I've been saying this whole time.

Fair-Weather Father Pt. 3 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Carl Surprised Icon Guys! I went down to the boarded-up caverns because the voice of God told me to, and guess what I found!
Moe Hopeful Icon A leprechaun? A unicorn? *whispers* Barney, get the extra large butterfly net.
Carl Surprised Icon No! Radioactive waste! Burns must have been dumping it in there for years.
Carl Surprised Icon If the town doesn't do something soon, it's gonna leak into the water supply and kill us all!
Moe Sneaky Icon Suuuure. Kill us all. *whispers* Barney, where the hell is that net?
Lenny Icon Mr. Burns runs this town. He controls the TV, radio, internet, and the Springfield Tumblr page! He's not gonna let you get your message out.
Carl Icon If the town won't listen to me, I just have to find someone whose voice can't be silenced. Like beloved former president Barack Obama!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Carl Annoyed Icon Well, former president Barack Obama never returned any of my emails, the jerk.
Carl Happy Icon But I did manage to find the next best thing! A bunch of school kids dressed as President Obama!
Lenny Yay Icon Wow! You got your message out and saved the town, Carl! You're a hero!
Carl Icon Naw, I'm no hero. I'm just a humble guy trying to do the right thing.
Moe Icon Hey, Carl. Talk show host Opal is on the phone, and she wants you to be on her Salute to Heroes episode!
Carl Happy Icon You hear that, you chumps? I'm a hero!!!

Fair-Weather Father Pt. 4 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Opal Icon Carl Carlsson. I came out of retirement/exile just to do an episode on you and your amazing story.
Opal Icon It's gone viral and gotten the attention of the entire nation.
Carl Surprised Icon Wow. That's a whole nation more than I was expecting.
Opal Icon So what in the world made you go down into those caverns, C.C.?
Carl Icon You're not gonna believe this, but it was a mission from God.
Ned Suspicious Icon Excuse my language but this all sounds like a bunch of hoopla to me!
Opal Happy Icon Ooh, a fight! I always wanted to do this kind of talk show!

Characters Sent on Tasks Edit

Character Dialogue
Ned Angry Icon What would God want with a beer-belching barfly like you?
Carl Surprised Icon Look Flanders, I didn't ask for this. I was just minding my own business and the voice of God rained down from above.
Ned Angry Icon Well, something else is about to rain down on you... my fists!
Opal Surprised Icon Mr. Flanders, no! Do it after these words from our sponsors!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
God Annoyed Icon Ned, stop attacking that man! I came to him with this mission for a reason. To heal the deep psychic wounds left by his dad's absence.
Ned Sad Icon Well, that does sound like something you'd do. But why not come to me?
God Annoyed Icon Frankly, you can be annoying. With the constant prayers, and the check-ins, and the asking about your wives. It piles up like junk mail up here.
Ned Shocked Icon Oh my God. I mean, Oh my You. I was being so selfish. I'm sorry Lord. And I'm sorry Carl.
Opal Happy Icon Jesus Christ, this is good television.
Jesus Christ Annoyed Icon Uh, I'm here too. Or does no one care about that?
Opal Icon We'll fit you in the third segment, J.C. I'll bump Lisa Kudrow.

Fair-Weather Father Pt. 4 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
God Icon Carl, thank you for passing on my message. If it hadn't been for you, Springfield and possibly the world would have been destroyed.
Carl Icon No problem, God. I'm just glad I could do something noteworthy like my dad.
God Annoyed Icon That greedy butthead? He just found a hole in the ground that I made, and over-charged people to see it.
God Icon You were the real miracle he should have tended to.
Carl Icon Aw. Thanks, Dad - I mean God. God! I'm sorry, did I make it weird? I made it weird, didn't I?
God Happy Icon It's okay though, I suppose I'm sort of everyone's dad. And their mom too. Gender's kind of an Earth construct.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Carl Happy Icon So because of me, the town was saved from total destruction. And I got to play catch with God!
Bart Sneaky Icon Wow. What a story! All of it's gonna go right in my history report. *whispers* Nelson, go get my extra large butterfly net.
