Dialogue Edit

Stranding at Attention Pt. 1 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Grampa Happy Icon Kids, did I ever tell you about the time I stopped a mutiny aboard a World War II Navy aircraft carrier?
Lisa Confused Icon Is this the one that ends with you wrestling Godzilla in Madison Square Garden?
Grampa Happy Icon No, and that story wasn’t entirely true. See, I told you that one when I was younger and much more senile than I am now.
Grampa Happy Icon No, this happened when I was a handsome, young buck, living my best Navy Life.
Grampa Happy Icon I'd been assigned a top secret mission by my Commander. *flashback harp*
Young Grampa Simpson Icon I won’t let you down, sir! Tojo will be shaking in his boots when he sees what I’ve done!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Young Grampa Simpson Happy Icon Mission accomplished, sir! Awaiting further instructions!
Grampa Teary Icon That was when I saw a sight so horrible it will be forever etched in my memory.
Bart Happy Icon *chanting* Dead body, dead body, dead body!
Grampa Startled Icon A grown man suffering terrible food poisoning in the water closet!
Lisa Grossed Out Icon *ewww* Grampa!
Young Grampa Simpson Surprised Icon Sir! I will never forget your sacrifice! I’ll see that you get the Purple Heart for this!

Stranding at Attention Pt. 2 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Grampa Serious Icon With my C.O. out of commission, that left me in command.
Grampa Serious Icon I immediately set to the task at hand: becoming drunk with power. *flashback harp*
Young Grampa Simpson Icon Here’s the situation, Abe. Some people achieve greatness, some people have greatness thrust upon them by undercooked chicken.
Young Grampa Simpson Happy Icon Swabbing platoon B! I am assuming command! Report for duty!

All Objectives Started Edit

Character Dialogue
Young Grampa Simpson Icon Atten-hut! Men, your commanding officer is down. As of this moment, I am in charge.
Young Grampa Simpson Icon Some of you look at this deck and think: “Hey, that looks pretty well swabbed”.
Young Grampa Simpson Icon You think: “We’ve been swabbing for twelve hours, and Navy regulations require we be allowed to sleep”.
Young Grampa Simpson Icon But I look at this deck, and I think: “If I work these men even harder, maybe the boss will promote me, so screw these guys”.
Young Grampa Simpson Icon So whaddya say, men? Are you ready to sacrifice everything for my benefit?
Young Grampa Simpson Icon Hello? Men? *whistles* Yo, anybody out there?

End Edit

No dialogue.

Stranding at Attention Pt. 3 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Grampa Serious Icon I was getting nowhere with these layabouts. It was time to properly motivate them.
Young Grampa Simpson Icon Alright boys, I've hidden the key to the Mess Hall. No one gets dinner until this deck shines like the Captain’s rear end after I’m done kissing it!
Grampa Icon Well, I’m proud to say the men respected my authority, and they fell right in line.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Young Grampa Simpson Surprised Icon Boys, we can work this out! Why don’t you all put me down, and we can discuss fine tuning my management style?
Grampa Serious Icon And that was when I learned that even if you're in the middle of the ocean far from any discernable land mass...
Grampa Sad Icon If you make the fellas mad enough, they'll find a sand bar to strand you on.

Stranding at Attention Pt. 4 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Grampa Icon Stranded on a desert island by my crew, I knew I was facing the very real possibility of sunburn.
Lisa Nagging Icon Also thirst and starvation.
Grampa Happy Icon That's when my eyes fell upon my salvation: sharks. *flashback harp*
Young Grampa Simpson Happy Icon Yoo-hoo! Over here, sharks! First one to offer me a ride gets all the mutineers he can eat!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Grampa Sad Icon That was when I learned the terrible truth about sharks -- they do not honor verbal contracts.
Young Grampa Simpson Surprised Icon Hey, I asked for a RIDE, you idiot shark. Not a mauling!

Stranding at Attention Pt. 5 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Grampa Innocent Icon So then the men rescued me and the rest of the story is really boring. The end!
Bart Icon Nuh-uh, Grampa. Any story you don’t want to tell us is one I want to hear.
Grampa Sad Icon Fine. What's a little more humiliation at my age anyway, just a drop in the ol’ catheter. *flashback harp*
Young Grampa Simpson Icon Now men, I realize we’ve had slight disagreements over my leadership style.
Young Grampa Simpson Icon But seeing as how you tried to kill me, and would love another crack at it, maybe I could make you dinner?

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Young Grampa Simpson Annoyed Icon This is the last time I'll ever peel a potato! *flash-forward harp*
Grampa Icon And it was. From then on, I made my wife peel the potatoes. Until she left me. Then, no potatoes ever again.
Grampa Sad Icon Man, I miss potatoes.
Grampa Happy Icon Oh, right. And then I wrestled Godzilla in Madison Square Garden. The end.
