Dialogue[edit | edit source]

No Laughing Matter Pt. 1[edit | edit source]

Start[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Lisa Icon.png Dr. Hibbert, I’m doing a Black History report on the black person I look up to most.
Lisa Icon.png Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison, and Octavia Butler have all passed away, so can I interview you?
Dr. Hibbert Happy Icon.png Absolutely. It’s an honor to be fourth on such a short list.
Lisa Embarrassed Icon.png You weren’t fourth, and it was a very long list.
Lisa Icon.png Could you tell me about how you became a doctor?
Dr. Hibbert Happy Icon.png Sure! It almost didn’t happen. I was dangerously close to flunking out of medical school.
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png My grades were perfect, but I kept laughing at inappropriate times, like the skinny fellow in that Joker movie. I forget the name of the character he played.

All Objectives Started[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png The year was 1975. Or 1995. Depending on what season this is, and how old I am as a character.
Lisa Confused Icon.png Huh?
Dr. Hibbert Happy Icon.png I had a proud, round, well-moisturized Afro. Which was either current or retro at the time.
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png And so did this beautiful woman who walked into my life.
Lisa Icon.png Pam Grier?
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png I wish! *chuckles*

End[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Bernice Hibbert Icon.png Are you Julius Hibbert?
Dr. Hibbert Happy Icon.png Fortunately for me, I am. And who might you be, gorgeous?
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png An angel that fell from heaven, dislocated her shoulder, and now needs me to reset it?
Bernice Hibbert Icon.png Close. I’m here to hand you these documents.
Dr. Hibbert Sad Icon.png Documents?
Bernice Hibbert Icon.png Julius Hibbert, consider yourself a mildly successful urban dance battle movie, because You Got Served!
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png Served? Wait, who are you? And what year is this exactly?! The movie You Got Served won’t come out until 2004!
Façade unlocked!

No Laughing Matter Pt. 2[edit | edit source]

Start[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png So I went to drown my sorrows at Moe’s Tavern, which was a hit with all the med students back then.
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png Before that deadly radon leak that took so many of their promising young lives… *chuckles*
Moe Sad Icon.png You got served? By, like, a waitress in a sit down restaurant? *sigh* Maybe that’ll be me one day.
Dr. Hibbert Annoyed Icon.png No, you borderline hobo. I’m getting sued! *sigh* I’m not even licensed to practice medicine yet. This could ruin me!
Moe Sneaky Icon.png You want my dangerously unqualified opinion?
Dr. Hibbert Annoyed Icon.png Not when you preface it like that.
Moe Hopeful Icon.png You gotta win this woman’s heart. If you charm her, then maybe she can convince her client not to sue you.
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png Hmm. That’s just crazy…
Moe Pleased Icon.png ...enough to work?
Dr. Hibbert Annoyed Icon.png No, I had completed my sentence. But perhaps some unseen dialogue will convince me.

End[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Bernice Hibbert Angry Icon.png Not-Yet-a-Dr. Hibbert! What are you doing here?
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png Well, I haven’t been able to get you out of my mind.
Dr. Hibbert Happy Icon.png So a friend convinced me to follow my heart, come down here, and sing Jodeci songs to you until you agree to go out with me and drop that lawsuit.
Dr. Hibbert Singing Icon.png “Eeevery time I close my eeeyes….”
Bernice Hibbert Phone Icon.png *calls security*

No Laughing Matter Pt. 3[edit | edit source]

Start[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Dr. Hibbert Sad Icon.png Moe, that was a disaster!
Moe Sneaky Icon.png Hm. Maybe this skirt is one of them classy dames. The kind what don’t like you callin’ em a skirt or a dame.
Moe Pleased Icon.png I got it! How’s about you get her some flowers. All the ladies I watch through binoculars LOVE flowers.
Dr. Hibbert Sad Icon.png
Moe Icon.png It’s not what you think. The ladies are on my neighbor's television. And lucky for me, he died with the TV on. Heh heh heh.

All Objectives Started[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Dr. Hibbert Sad Icon.png An Adult Skateboard shop? Does that mean you sell skateboards for adults who can’t let go of the past, or erotically-themed skateboards for athletic perverts?
Squeaky Voice Attendant Icon.png Both!
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png Understood. You wouldn’t happen to sell flowers here too, would you?
Squeaky Voice Attendant Happy Icon.png We do for the purposes of this quest objective!

End[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Dr. Hibbert Sad Icon.png Bernice, I’m sorry for how I acted before. I didn’t realize your law offices frowned upon lewd karaoke.
Dr. Hibbert Happy Icon.png I got you these flowers as a token of my olive branch.
Bernice Hibbert Icon.png Are those roses?
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png Yes. Their delicate beauty reminds me of you.
Bernice Hibbert Allergic Icon.png *throat closes up*
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png An allergic reaction! Perhaps you’re a bit more delicate than they are. *chuckles*
Animated Job Unlocked!

No Laughing Matter Pt. 4[edit | edit source]

Start[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Dr. Hibbert Happy Icon.png Well, look who’s still alive! I’m glad you found your EpiPen.
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png I was afraid I’d have to perform an emergency tracheotomy, and we haven’t gotten to that chapter in med school yet.
Bernice Hibbert Happy Icon.png Even though you almost killed me, I’m glad you were there to keep me from dying.
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png The pleasure was all mine. I brought you some rice pudding from the hospital cafeteria.
Bernice Hibbert Happy Icon.png My favorite! How did you know?
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png It said so on your MedicAlert bracelet.
Bernice Hibbert Icon.png Ooh. I like a man who pays attention to detail.
Dr. Hibbert Happy Icon.png I know. It also said that on your MedicAlert bracelet too. That thing is quite a read.

End[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png I apologize for my spirited performance.
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png When I researched the works of Poet Laureate Dolemite, I did not realize his stanzas would be peppered with so many expletives.
Bernice Hibbert Icon.png Life is never boring around you, is it Julius?
Dr. Hibbert Happy Icon.png Why don’t you stick around and find out?
Dr. Hibbert Kissbernice Icon.png *kiss*

No Laughing Matter Pt. 5[edit | edit source]

Start[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png Darling, these past few months with you have been a dream.
Dr. Hibbert Happy Icon.png I finished medical school, got a residency, and your client agreed to drop the lawsuit against me.
Bernice Hibbert Icon.png Well, he didn’t agree to it so much as die. You can’t charge legal fees to a dead man. Believe me, my law firm has tried!
Dr. Hibbert Sad Icon.png *gasp* He didn’t die from medical negligence, did he?
Bernice Hibbert Icon.png Heavens, no. He was mauled by a panda at the Springfield Zoo.
Dr. Hibbert Happy Icon.png Oh thank God! *chuckles*
Bernice Hibbert Icon.png Say, since we’ve gotten so serious, I think it’s time you met my family. Particularly my slacker brother, Chester.
Bernice Hibbert Icon.png Do you think you could take him under your wing and mentor him? Help him become a staid, somber, serious man like you.
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png *chuckles for far too long* I don’t see why not.

End[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Dr. Hibbert Happy Icon.png And that’s the story of how I met your mother.
Lisa Nagging Icon.png I’m not your child.
