Social Engineering Pt. 1[]

Character Dialogue
Sebastian Cobb Icon.png "I'm starting to like this town. Perhaps I will stay here."
Professor Frink Icon.png "As the principle of mass dilation said to the matter accelerating near the speed of light, not so fast!"
Professor Frink Icon.png "I'm the scientist in this town. I even have a crazy house that's never been in the show to prove it!"
Sebastian Cobb Icon.png "I'd have thought you relished the idea of another intellect in town. We could work on papers together."
Professor Frink Icon.png "Nice try, Cobb. But I don't publish with people whose names come before mine alphabetically."
Sebastian Cobb Icon.png "But you can't make me leave -- I've already been paid for."
Professor Frink Angry Icon.png "You made the wrong mad scientist mad!"

Social Engineering Pt. 2[]

Character Dialogue
Sebastian Cobb Sad Icon.png "How did that man beat me in science? Half the things he was saying didn't even make sense."
Professor Frink Icon.png "Science isn't about making sense -- look at quantum mechanics! If you want a role in this town, you're going to need a new angle."
Sebastian Cobb Icon.png "Hmm. Well, I HAVE always been a bit of a doom-and-gloom pessimist. Does this town need a nay-sayer?"
Comic Book Guy Icon.png "I should say not."
Sebastian Cobb Icon.png "You think you've got a more negative attitude than me? You clearly love food, while I love nothing."
Comic Book Guy Icon.png "Wrong! I am heavyset not because I love food, but because I hate myself."
Comic Book Guy Icon.png "When I'm done with you, those glasses you're wearing will be rose-colored!"

Social Engineering Pt. 3[]

Character Dialogue
Sebastian Cobb Sad Icon.png "Defeated again. That man is as bitter as denatonium."
Comic Book Guy Icon.png "Worst. Joke. Ever."
Sebastian Cobb Icon.png "I need a niche... but what?"
Moe Icon.png "What?"
Sebastian Cobb Icon.png "Yes, what."
Moe Icon.png "I'm sorry, but when you say "what" it sounds like "vhat"... even though it ain't written that way."
Sebastian Cobb Icon.png "Yes, that is because of my German accent."
Sebastian Cobb Icon.png "Hey, maybe that can be my thing!"
Wolfcastle Icon.png "Zat seems unlikely."
Uter Icon.png "There are already TWO of us."

Social Engineering Pt. 4[]

Character Dialogue
Sebastian Cobb Sad Icon.png "It's useless. I have nothing to contribute to this world. I may as well not even exist."
Moe Icon.png "Nice try there, Colonel Clink. But utter hopelessness is MY thing!"
Moe Icon.png "You don't want to have a lack of self-esteem with me. I've got noose bruises in places you can't imagine."
Sebastian Cobb Icon.png *sigh* "I must be the most unoriginal character in Springfield."
Moe Icon.png "Well, at least that's something."
Sebastian Cobb Happy Icon.png "You're right! That's my defining characteristic. Being non-unique is what makes me unique!"
Moe Icon.png "There you go. Everyone's happy!"
