DialogueEdit

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 1Edit

StartEdit

Character Dialogue
Krusty Icon "I miss the old Springfield."
"Where’s the black market Vicodin? Where’s the underground kangaroo fight club? I need my ‘roo fights!"
"Sure, I’m making lots of money. But that gets boring without morally reprehensible things to spend it on."
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "Krusty, if you’re jaded about being rich, there’s only on solution to your spiritual crisis – get even richer."
Krusty Icon "Yeah, then I can buy a private island. And attach rockets to it, and blast it into space. Ah, Space Island."
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "What you need is to start making new Itchy & Scratchys."
Krusty Icon "But we’ve already got hundreds of them. And the characters don’t change or age. What innovative stories could any writer wring out of those characters?"
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "From what I can tell, none."
"But it doesn’t matter. No one needs to watch the new episodes."
"They just need to know they’re being made and remember the old ones fondly…and voila, the brand is still relevant!"
"Then you can start merchandising t-shirts and action figures, slot machines and beer… maybe even develop a freemium game!"
Krusty Icon "Would the game have to be good?"
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "Not at all. Just rebuild Itchy & Scratchy Studios. I promise you’ll be slurping up cash pronto from the sweet IP!"

EndEdit

Character Dialogue
Krusty Icon "Look out, ennui. You’re about to get punched with a money fist."

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 2Edit

Character Dialogue
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "Krusty, if it isn't my favorite talking ulcer. What is it that you want from me?"
Krusty Icon "Hey, hey, Roger. I just pulled you from oblivion. You ought to be kissing my foot acne in gratitude."
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "I ain't kissing your facne for nothing! You still owe me for the Picasso you destroyed!"
Krusty Icon "When I drunkenly broke into your house and got cold? What was I supposed to start a fire with... a Monet!?"
"I'm not breathing in fumes from some crappy Impressionist!"
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "Fellas, let's put aside this fighting, and focus on our common goal -- being rich enough to feel superior to others."
Krusty Icon "We have a simple request, Roger."
"Get your staff at I & S to develop a new batch of beloved cartoons we can turn into shoddy, sweatshop merchandise."
"Remember, not just loved, BE-loved."
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "We can do that. I have the smartest, hardest working, most talented writers since… [JOKE TO COME]."

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 3Edit

StartEdit

Character Dialogue
Krusty Icon "Well, Roger, I've given you and your staff 12 hours, give or take the use of donuts."
"That should be more than enough time for them to come up with a billion dollar franchise."
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "I'm sorry, Krusty. I went into the studio, and found everyone who worked for me is gone. And by gone, I mean is now a skeleton."
"There's a lesson here: if you chain your writers to their chairs, make sure those chairs are within arms' reach of the breakroom."
Krusty Icon "Wait. Then what have you been doing all this time?"
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "Caught up with my email. Your inbox really fills up when you haven't been in existence for a while."
Krusty Icon "Oh, even more money! You were going to heal me! Now how will I ever end the numbness I feel for life?"

EndEdit

Character Dialogue
Krusty Icon "The worst problems in the world are the ones that affect me."
Comic Book Guy Icon "A sad clown? How very original."
Krusty Icon "Originality is not my specialty."
"Besides, I'm not sad for me. I'm sad for the millions of viewers who'll never get to see new episodes of Itchy and Scratchy."
Comic Book Guy Icon "I guess you haven't seen Deadline Springfield."
Krusty Icon "What is that -- the Internet? People aren't still doing the Internet, are they?"

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 4Edit

Character Dialogue
Krusty Icon "Hey Roger Liars, which I say since Liars rhymes with your last name Myers. What's this I just read on Deadline Springfield?"
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "Look whose tears have dried. My good pal--"
Krusty Icon "Don't you “good pal” me! You're gonna make millions showing Itchy & Scratchy on the World Wide Whatever! And you cut me out of the deal?!"
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "In our last contract, you never asked for a share of new media sales. It's not my fault we signed that when the internet didn't exist."
Krusty Icon "You backstabbing son of a backstabber!"
"If it's an option in my menu, I will make it my mission to have you stored back in the inventory."
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "People don't watch television anymore, Krusty."
"They receive content through smartphones, computers, tablets, and direct-to-brain downloads."
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "So now some company will pay us handsomely for the opportunity to provide the entire Itchy & Scratchy catalog via cable and internet doohickeys."
"That's how to wring the last remaining drops of cash out of an aging cartoon franchise."
Krusty Icon "But you told me IP something something blah blah?"
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "I just said that to trick you into bringing back Roger. Face it, Krusty. You got Blue-Haired Lawyered."

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 5Edit

Character Dialogue
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "Seven hundred and fifty million dollars…"
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "Roger, can you please finish signing these contracts?"
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "Seven hundred and fifty million dollars…"
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "Yes, that's how much you're going to be paid for the streaming rights for Itchy & Scratchy by the BZZ Network, Where Entertainment Is Extreme©!"
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "Seven hundred and fifty million dollars…"
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "But you can't get anything from the BZZ Network, Where Entertainment Is Extreme©, until you sign all the contracts."
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "Seven hundred and fifty million dollars..."
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon *sigh* "Here, you hold the pen and I'll hold your hand."

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 6Edit

StartEdit

Character Dialogue
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "Look at all these tech weirdos and inter-dorks here to build the Itchy & Scratchy website."
"Finally, I've got a staff to demean and humiliate. What am I supposed to yell at them to do again?"
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "They're creating an advertising supported web portal."
"It's basically a Hulu devoted solely to Itchy & Scratchy where all the episodes ever produced can be viewed."
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "Do whatever the lawyer just said! And do it faster! Or I'll pull out your throats and choke you with your own windpipes!"
"Make a note of that visual. We could make a whole story out of it for the cat. Or the mouse. Whichever one does the violence."

EndEdit

Character Dialogue
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "I am here to inform you, Krusty, since the start of the I & S web portal for BZZ Network, Where Entertainment Is Extreme ©, you must cease all displays of Itchy & Scratchy licensed images."
Krusty Icon "You're pulling Itchy & Scratchy? Please, no one watches my show to see me!"
"Everyone knows I'm the one holding me back!"

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 7Edit

Character Dialogue
Bart Icon "Lis, look outside and tell me if the world blew up!"
Lisa Icon "It's still here. The world is unlikely to end by explosion though."
"The true danger is inattention and neglect as we use up our natural resources. I have seen the asteroid, and it is us."
Bart Icon "You're as fun as ever, sis. But now we have a real problem!"
"Itchy & Scratchy was pulled from Krusty's show! This is going to make wasting time watching TV pointless."
Lisa Icon "As the super rich get super richer, the rest of us have to accept the rules they give us. That's how the modern economy works."
"By the way, if you're smart and powerless, it's way cooler to give up and act jaded. I read that in The Economist For Kidz."
Bart Icon "This is unacceptable. What's the point of being kids if we can't fix problems with pluck, spunk, and …how do we fix this?"
Lisa Icon "Well, we could round up all the kids in town and write complaint letters to Roger Myers Jr."
"This could be our civil rights movement, but instead of being about freedom from social persecution, it's about freedom to watch TV. Because freedom is now a meaningless word."
Bart Icon "Write letters? Would we have to use cursive? This seems too hard. Can't we just email photos of our butts?"
Lisa Icon "Anyone or any spambot can shoot off an email. But people willing to write letters, they're crazy enough to be dangerous."

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 8Edit

StartEdit

Character Dialogue
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "I've gotten so many thoughtful, articulate letters from our passionate fans. Intern, bring me the incinerator!"
Squeaky Voice Teen Icon "Dear Leader Mr. Myers, sir, the incinerator broke yesterday, after you tried to burn the printer after another paper jam."
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "A printer's job is to print. Not eat up all my paper!"

EndEdit

Character Dialogue
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "Taking the time to personally ignore each fan letter is so fulfilling.

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 9Edit

StartEdit

Character Dialogue
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "Nothing better to do after the completion of a lifetime of work than proclaim some exposition."
"The Itchy & Scratchy website is ready to launch. I can finally relax."
"Think I'll treat myself by making my clothes stink of tobacco."

EndEdit

Character Dialogue
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "Wait, if all my work is done, who am I going to yell at? There's too much risk of reprisal with waiters and concierges."
"I can try yelling at my cigar. Cigar, you better not give me mouth cancer!"
"Oh no, this isn't working -- it's just defiantly blowing smoke in my face."

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 10Edit

StartEdit

Character Dialogue
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "So it's agreed. I'll get to yell at people to make new Itchy & Scratchy episodes, and Krusty will show them."
Krusty Icon "That's all I ever wanted."
"Also, a percentage of that seven hundred and fifty million dollar new media sale would be great."
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "Seven hundred and fifty million dollars..."
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "Krusty, the BZZ Network, Where Entertainment Is Extreme ©, has offered to pay your cable bill for one year."
"They view new episodes airing on your network as the perfect advertising for their website."
"Especially since they're all owned by the same media conglomerate."
Krusty Icon "You make it cable AND internet, and we've got a deal!"

EndEdit

Character Dialogue
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon "Okay, you scribbling cretins, I want you to shove amazing down my throat like I'm a French goose!"
"It's nice to be home."

Maximum ItchyloadEdit

StartEdit

Character Dialogue
Bart Icon "Welcome to the Itchydome!"
"We are surrounded on all sides by sixteen smartphones, seven tablets, four laptops, two home computers, and five TVs, making…"
Lisa Icon "Thirty-four."
Bart Icon "Thirty-four screens blasting Itchy & Scratchy straight at our eyeballs, earholes, and mushified brains."
"People, there is no escape from the entertainment."
Milhouse Icon "My nose is starting to bleed. Cool!"
Bart Icon "Now this is how TV shows were meant to be watched."
