Dialogue Edit

Poorly Working Title Pt. 1 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Lisa Eyeroll Icon Oh brother, they're having a "Bring Poochie Back To Life" script contest. Could they be any more desperate?
Homer Guilty Icon I agree. I never think about Poochie anymore. Not Poochie's face, not Poochie's irreverent in-your-face attitude, not Poochie nothin'.
Homer Sad Icon Poochie.
Bart Sneaky Icon What's this file on your computer labeled "POOCHIE FAN FICTION"?
Homer Scared Icon It's, uh, an elaborate plan to kill your mother and collect the insurance money!
Marge Eyeroll Icon It's not a plan to kill me. You talk about Poochie in your sleep.
Marge Icon This could be your chance to bring YOUR version of Poochie to life.
Bart Annoyed Icon Don't egg him on, Mom!
Homer Happy Icon Yes, DO egg me on, because I will need several omelets to fuel me on as I write a Poochie script!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Krusty Surprised Icon There's hundreds of these script contest entries!
Krusty Icon I haven't seen stacks of paper this high since I made all that money licensing my name to that paper company.
Krusty Thoughtful Icon Who's gonna read through these?
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon I assumed you were...
Homer Cautious Icon Um, excuse me? Have you picked a winner yet?
Krusty Icon We haven't even looked at--
Roger Meyers Jr. Sneaky Icon As a matter of fact, we just picked the winner... and it's you!
Homer Surprised Icon Me?!
Roger Meyers Jr. Sneaky Icon Your script was so good, we're making you head writer!
Homer Cautious Icon But the only thing I've ever written is a Grammy-winning album and a movie starring Mel Gibson!
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon Don't worry, kid, you'll do great. You can start by reading all these scripts to pick out the best parts.

Poorly Working Title Pt. 2 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Homer Angry Icon *rips script* This is garbage! How can these amateur contest entrants call themselves professional writers?!
Homer Serious Icon Character development! Story arcs! Drama! ...are all things that are too old-fashioned!
Homer Thoughtful Icon I need to tap into what KIDS like!
Homer Proud Icon Also, it's pretty impressive that I was able to rip an entire script in half...

Youngsters at Audience Research Table Edit

First one of the Youngesters (Bart, Lisa, Milhouse, Nelson, or Ralph) starts Giving Feedback at Audience Research Table.

Character Dialogue
Bart Whatever Icon Talking cartoon dogs can't skateboard... it's just not believable.
Nelson Grim Icon Poochie's funny "ha-ha", not funny "Haw haw!"
Lisa Worried Icon Please don't make him rap again. Pleeeease don't make him rap again. And no buzzwords!
Ralph Happy Icon When I'M good boy, my daddy lets me stick my head out the car window.
Milhouse Icon Find the comedic premise, heighten it three times, and get out!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Homer Icon Okay, I've gone through all the scripts, listened to today's youth included all the latest slang...
Homer Proud Icon ...drank six beers, and written the most perfect Poochie script there could ever be!
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon *flips to back page* Looks to be about the right length. I'm satisfied.
Homer Woohoo Icon Woo hoo!

Unlocks Network Headquarters.

Poorly Working Title Pt. 3 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon All right, Frink, are we ready to bring back Poochie now?
Professor Frink Icon Yes, the script appears to be roughly the correct amount of pages, which is all that ever mattered...
Professor Frink Icon The only thing left is to record some sample voice over...
Professor Frink Icon ...which I will do myself, because people love hearing my voice for extended periods of time...
Homer Icon Not so fast! If Poochie's known for one thing, it's his signature sunglasses. Do you know where I could get a pair?
Roger Meyers Jr. Sneaky Icon Wait a minute Homer, YOU should record Poochie's voice!
Homer Serious Icon Yeah, I guess since I was his voice last time it only makes sense. Now are you gonna make with the sunglasses or not?!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Homer Poochieglasses Happy Icon You used your Weird Science machine, Frink, so where's Poochie?
Professor Frink Embarrassed Icon Oh yes, I believe he's doing what cool guys do and waiting to make a dramatic entrance... any minute now.
Poochie Happy Icon Yo, yo, yolo, bruh! Poochie in da house, squad-fam! We gonna get it lit in here?!
Bart and Lisa Scream Icon Ahhhh! He's trying to relate to us!

Unlocks Bicycle Basketball Ramp with Poochie.

Poorly Working Title Pt. 4 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Homer Angry Icon Kids, put that stupid homework down and come watch this cartoon right now!
Lisa Grossed Out Icon Dad, I'm happy that Itchy and Scratchy are back, but why do they have to jam Poochie down our throats again?
Bart Happy Icon Seriously, when they killed him off the first time, they gave us the day off from school to celebrate.
Homer Serious Icon Because Poochie has been retooled to be super modern...
Homer Serious Icon ...so you better watch or you're gonna get beaten up at school for not knowing what the dealio is.
Bart Whatever Icon A guy who just said "what's the dealio" is lecturing me on being cool.
Homer Icon Shhh! Poochie's about to make a slam dunk!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Homer Happy Icon Did you see him going up and down on that ramp? Wasn't it great?!
Bart Nagging Icon He literally jumped a shark, Dad. My childhood is over.
Lisa Sad Icon It was good while it lasted...
Lisa Sad Icon I guess now all we'll care about are consumer reports, keeping our sneakers really clean, and which fruits are in season.

Poorly Working Title Pt. 5 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Bart Sad Icon It's four o'clock, I don't know what to do with myself. Usually I'd be watching Itchy and Scratchy right now.
Lisa Annoyed Icon Stupid Poochie ruined everything, with his lame backwards hat, and his in-fashion-again leather jacket, and his jump-cut editing.
Bart Sneaky Icon He's so dumb. Hey, what if we watched his show just to goof on it!
Lisa Sly Icon Yeah, we can scoff at all the parts where he does stuff that's so stupid it's actually enjoyable, but we'll feel smart because we know it's lame.
Bart Happy Icon And we'll stay tuned for all the commercial breaks!
Lisa Happy Icon Yeah, in case those are stupid too!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Bart Laughing Icon Oh man, so dumb. I can't wait to bash it at school tomorrow.
Lisa Happy Icon I'm gonna break it down beat by beat and mock it as if it were literature!
Homer Happy Icon Ah-ha! So you do like it after all!
Bart Nagging Icon We're watching it ironically.
Lisa Icon We were laughing at the parts you're not supposed to laugh at.
Homer Proud Icon But you were still laughing and enjoying yourselves, right?
Bart Nagging Icon Yes. Ironically.
Homer Confused Icon ...?

Unlocks Poochie's Car.

Poorly Working Title Pt. 6 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Roger Meyers Jr. Happy Icon Great work, Homer. The numbers are through the roof!
Krusty Happy Icon Today's show had the most viewers since that episode where I accidentally aided, abetted and then interviewed El Chapo.
Homer Thoughtful Icon Are we sure our viewers are laughing at the right stuff though?
Roger Meyers Jr. Icon They could be crying for all I care, as long as they don't change the channel! Now what ideas do ya got for the next episode?
Homer Icon Um, okay, what if Poochie stole a car, but it turned out to be an Uber, so he had to keep picking people up.
Krusty Joking Icon *laughs* That's funny.
Homer Cautious Icon Wait, are you ACTUALLY laughing, or are you laughing at the idea that I pitched it with the intention of making you laugh?
Roger Meyers Jr. Angry Icon Enough with the philosophy lesson, just get Poochie in the car and make with the silly taxi rides!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Homer Cautious Icon Well? What'd you kids think?
Lisa Surprised Icon It was actually pretty funny.
Bart Icon The parts that were supposed to make us laugh made us laugh.
Homer Proud Icon Phew!
Lisa Nagging Icon Which makes it lame.
Bart Nagging Icon No one likes a lame thing that knows it's lame. That'd be like if Tim Allen started mocking himself.
Lisa Sad Icon Yeah, the smugness factor for us is gone. You screwed up, Dad -- you made the show sorta okay.
Homer Sad Icon ...

Poorly Working Title Pt. 7 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Roger Meyers Jr. Angry Icon Have you seen the numbers, Homer? It's not looking good for our old friend Poochie.
Krusty Angry Icon Or for you -- you're fired.
Homer Cautious Icon Are you firing me "ironically"?
Krusty Annoyed Icon No.
Roger Meyers Jr. Sneaky Icon Also, you never signed your contract, so you're not getting paid. That's sorta ironic.
Homer Surprised Icon It is??
Roger Meyers Jr. Angry Icon No. It's just stupid. Now get out.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Homer Icon Well, it was fun while it lasted.
Homer Sad Icon Except all the tons of hard work I had to do and the gut-wrenching stress of wondering if people legitimately liked it.
Homer Icon What'll happen to you, Poochie? Will they ship you back to your home planet?
Poochie Happy Icon No, I'll just stick around here. This planet's actually pretty cool... NOT!
Homer Proud Icon *wipes away tear* Never gets old.
