Smells Like Mean Spirit Pt. 1Edit


Character Dialogue
Lisa Shouting Icon "School is ridiculous!"
Lisa Annoyed Icon "Today, Miss Hoover made us play Hide 'n' Hide until the day was over."
Bart Icon "Yeah, it's like no one cares if we even go to school."
Bart Laughing Icon "It's paradise!"
Lisa Angry Icon "I can't allow the young minds of Springfield to grow as soft as the middle-aged butts of Springfield."
Lisa Shouting Icon "I must take this to the Internet!"
Bart Rollingeyes Icon "No one will care. Especially not the Internet..."
Bart Icon "...unless you put it into list form, or write it on a photo of a cat."
Lisa Angry Icon "My friends will care..."
Bart Icon "What friends?"
Lisa Deadpan Icon "You're right, I need some friends!"
Lisa Alarmed Icon "But where do you meet friends outside of school?"
Lisa Alarmed Icon "The library? Volunteering at a retirement home?"
Lisa Annoyed Icon "Come on, Lisa, don't think like yourself."
Lisa Angry Icon "You hate yourself. Think like a vapid tween."


Character Dialogue
Lisa Embarrassed Icon "You can't spell fair-weather friend without friend!"

Smells Like Mean Spirit Pt. 2Edit

Character Dialogue
Janey Icon "Oh it's you, Lisa. My ninth friend I'm most excited to see!"
Janey Happy Icon "Congrats on finally making it to my top ten."
Lisa Annoyed Icon "How about we switch and I'll keep the "Best" part of the "Best Friends" necklace I just gave you?"
Janey Icon "I appreciate that. I don't want to exclude anyone better who might come around."
Janey Deadpan Icon "Too bad they don't make "Best Acquaintance" necklaces."
Lisa Icon "Janey, I wanted to see if you'd star in a series about school reform on ViewTube."
Janey Happy Icon "You had me at star and then lost me at school reform, but got me back at ViewTube. I'm in!"
Lisa Icon "First we need a name for our channel."
Lisa Icon "We're devil-may-care women taking on the academic establishment, so maybe "Naughty School Girls".
Lisa Icon "Type it in."
Janey Nervous Icon "*gasp* Not that."
Janey Nervous Icon "How about something more innocent, like Sparkle Pony Squad?"
Lisa Alarmed Icon "*gasp* The Internet is a filthy place."

Smells Like Mean Spirit Pt. 3Edit

Character Dialogue
Lisa Angry Icon "I registered a complaint with ViewTube."
Lisa Annoyed Icon "Clearly they didn't release our video properly -- we don't have a single view!"
Janey Sad Icon "You didn't watch your own video?"
Lisa Deadpan Icon "I thought it would be unethical, like voting for yourself or eating meat or trick or treating for anyone other than UNICEF."
Janey Annoyed Icon "It's boring stuff like that that's made our video unwatchable."
Janey Happy Icon "Our videos need more jazz, more pizzazz, more razzmatazz – more z's in general!"
Lisa Deadpan Icon "I suppose even the most prestigious news organizations still add little bits of flair to keep people interested."
Lisa Icon "Like 60 Minutes' ticking clock or Kent Brockman's topless weather updates."
Brockman Icon "Tune in for Nipples on the Nines."
Janey Icon "Great! So next step is to get your cat, Lisa."
Lisa Icon "Snowball II? But why?"
Janey Icon "If we put a cat in our video, everyone from the poorly parented toddler to the bored office worker to the--"
Crazy Cat Lady Happy Icon "MWABLAHAHAHAHAAH!"
Janey Icon "...clinically insane will watch our videos."
Janey Happy Icon "Everyone loves watching cats!"

Smells Like Mean Spirit Pt. 4Edit


Character Dialogue
Janey Deadpan Icon "Our video has over 9,000 views and the comments have dissolved into an Anti-Semitic shouting match!"
Janey Happy Icon "We're a hit!"
Lisa Angry Icon "But it has nothing to do with the promotion of education!"
Lisa Annoyed Icon "It's all about cats, jewelry, and make-up. How does this help our cause?"
Janey Happy Icon "It's simple. We get enough views to get an endorsement deal, then a small part on a sitcom, then a movie career, then we win an Oscar."
Janey Icon "And then we start a charity to reform pools."
Lisa Deadpan Icon "You mean schools?"
Janey Annoyed Icon "Whatever."
Janey Icon "Plus look, your original video has 97 views! It benefits just from being on the same channel as this video."
Janey Happy Icon "Just like you benefit from being friends with me."
Lisa Angry Icon "I hardly think being invited to one roller skating birthday party is enough to sacrifice my beliefs."
Janey Icon "I'll throw in the sleepover afterwards. Very exclusive, only five other girls will be there."
Lisa Deadpan Icon "If I can get a written contract that states my hand will not be placed in a cup of warm water, it's a deal."


Character Dialogue
Bart Icon "Janey, it has come to my attention that you and Lisa have started a popular ViewTube channel, and I must admit I've grown intrigued."
Janey Icon "Well I'm posting a video about how to French braid your Malibu Stacy doll later today. Make sure to check it out!"
Bart Icon "Let's just say I'm less interested in participating as a viewer, and more interested in expanding your audience base by shifting the paradigm."
Janey Deadpan Icon "Excuse me?"
Bart Icon "I want in. With your sense of lame girlie things, my sense of awesome boy things, and Lisa's sense of..."
Bart Icon "...owning a camera, we could be famous!"
Janey Happy Icon "You had me at girl, lost me at boy, and got me back at famous!"

Smells Like Mean Spirit Pt. 5Edit


Character Dialogue
Janey Icon "What part of the ViewTube team do you want to play?"
Janey Icon "We'll have an opening for boom operator once the tape unsticks and the mic falls."
Bart Sneaky Icon "Janey, please. I'm clearly an on-air talent."
Bart Icon "I'm proposing a channel chock-full of pranks bound to bring in the most influential, widely coveted, and simple-minded market there is -- young boys!"
Bart Sneaky Icon "Think of the money we could make. Swimming pools full!"
Bart Icon "Assuming that the swimming pool is small and the money novelty size."
Janey Annoyed Icon "Our parents are never going to let us make money off the Internet."
Janey Icon "My dad always said it isn't money if you didn't make it yourself."
Janey Deadpan Icon "But he's also a known counterfeiter, so maybe we shouldn't listen to him."
Bart Rollingeyes Icon "Wake up, Janey. There are no adults on the Internet. Just children with their parents' credit cards."
Janey Nervous Icon "My dad's not allowed to have a credit card... on account of being wanted for counterfeiting."
Janey Deadpan Icon "It's why I've had so many last names."
Bart Icon "Leave the credit card to me. I know just the idiot for the job."
Homer Icon "Bart, did you just say my name?"
Homer Icon "I got some guac in my ear and tried to clean it out with a cheese puff and, long story short, the living room is now full of seagulls."


Character Dialogue
Janey Icon "I want to expand our channel into the dating scene. As an eight-year-old girl, I think I have wisdom to share."
Janey Happy Icon "So, Bart, I set you up on a blind date with one of my friends."
Bart Surprised Icon "WHAT? I don't do dates. Neither the fruit nor the activity."
Janey Annoyed Icon "If you don't go on this date, I'm prepared to spread a rumor that you've got…"
Janey Happy Icon "A gluten allergy!"
Bart Surprised Icon "NOOOOOO! Popularity demands gluten."
Bart Sad Icon "Alright, who am I going on a date with?"
Sherri Icon "Me!"
Bart Ack Icon "Demon!"
Bart Sad Icon "I mean – De'monday sound good, mon?"

Smells Like Mean Spirit Pt. 6Edit


Character Dialogue
Janey Nervous Icon "I'm sorry, Lisa, we took a vote and we're kicking you off the ViewTube channel."
Janey Deadpan Icon "The tally was actually 3 to 0, even though you voted."
Lisa Deadpan Icon "I told you – I can't vote for myself."
Lisa Sad Icon "But this channel was my idea!"
Lisa Sad Icon "I haven't been stabbed in the back like this since I played Julius Caesar in the school play. I got betrayed by my understudy."
Bart Sad Icon "Your videos are dragging us down."
Bart Rollingeyes Icon "No one has even bothered to comment 'First' on them. They are THAT unpopular."
Lisa Deadpan Icon "We were going to change the world, one five-minute video at a time"
Lisa Annoyed Icon "Now you're just adding to the clutter."
Janey Annoyed Icon "Excuse me, sounds like someone hasn't seen my video on clearing out closet clutter."
Lisa Icon "I did watch that video. What does it mean to organize your clothes by nationality?"
Janey Annoyed Icon "If you can't spot horrendous Canadian fashion from a mile away, then you shouldn't be allowed to wear clothes at all!"
Lisa Sad Icon "Abandoned again by my own creation. It's like my Self Sufficiency Robot all over again."


Character Dialogue
Lisa Shouting Icon "You ruined this for me, Bart. And you turned my closest quasi-friend against me!"
Bart Icon "They say keep your friends close but your enemies closer, so by that logic, you two should be closer than ever"
Bart Sneaky Icon "You're welcome!"
Bart Icon "Listen, Lisa, we're just trying to run a business here. That was the whole point."
Lisa Shouting Icon "No, the whole point of this was to bring awareness to issues plaguing our school system!"
Lisa Annoyed Icon "Maybe I need to go tell Mom and Dad what you've done."
Bart Rollingeyes Icon "Puh-leez. Do you really think Mom and Dad will be mad at me after I tell them I've made enough money to dine at a restaurant and not dash."
Bart Icon "You know how much Homer hates to dash."
Lisa Shouting Icon "Almost as much as he hates being humiliated for profit and not getting a cut."
Bart Sad Icon "*GULP*"

Smells Like Mean Spirit Pt. 7Edit

Character Dialogue
Homer Serious Icon "You used my personal information to open a website thingy to try and make money off of shaming me?"
Homer Furious Icon "Nobody exploits anyone in this family for monetary gain but ME, boy! You're grounded for a week!"
Lisa Happy Icon "Take that Bart!"
Homer Serious Icon "Lisa! Nobody likes a snitch! You're grounded for a month."
Lisa Shocked Icon "That's unfair! You wouldn't have even known about this Internet scheme if I hadn't told you."
Homer Serious Icon "That's right. And in return I'm teaching you a valuable life lesson."
Homer Serious Icon "Trust no one."

Smells Like Mean Spirit Pt. 8Edit

Character Dialogue
Janey Sad Icon "My videos are nothing but down-votes!"
Janey Sad Icon "This is worse than when Gold Navy ended their three pants for three dollars made by three child laborers sale."
Bart Icon "There's no such thing as bad publicity, dollface."
Bart Sneaky Icon "A down-vote is still a view and each view means more money, money, money!"
Janey Annoyed Icon "I don't care about the money. I want out."
Janey Sad Icon "These comments are so mean and poorly spelled. I'm starting to think there might be a seamy underbelly to the Internet."
Bart Angry Icon "That's enough! I had to suffer through a 6 hour grounding for this."
Bart Angry Icon "But now the money's rolling in and this machine can't be stopped."
Bart Angry Icon "We're too big to fail!"
Bart Icon "Wait, where have I heard that before?"
Wiggum Angry Icon "Young man, you're under arrest for credit card fraud."
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "Has he gotten to where he tells you that you have the right to an attorney?"
Wiggum Eyeswide Icon "Ahhh, best part of my job – arresting kids."
Bart Sad Icon "Now come on, fellas. I'm sure we can settle this like men. Specifically men who accept bribes."
Quimby Icon "Did someone say my name?"

Smells Like Mean Spirit Pt. 9Edit

Character Dialogue
Janey Nervous Icon "How did the trial go?"
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "I got young Mr. Simpson off on a technicality."
Lisa Angry Icon "What technicality?"
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "RUN!"
Lou Icon "Chief, that kid we arrested is running away."
Wiggum Icon "Good for him."
Lou Icon "You know we've got a squad car. And a radio. And a whole police force, and..."
Lou Icon "...Chief, you sleeping standing up again?"
Bart Icon "*panting* So what video should we record next?"
Bart Sneaky Icon "I stole a taser from Wiggum's belt. Wanna test it on Milhouse?"
