Minor RolesEdit


Jake: Morning, Adam. What sort of fun filled adventure do we have in store today?
Adam: Nothing that I know of.
Jake: Eh, give it a second.
Pixiefrog: [over the intercom] Attention students, this is your principal with an important announcement. This afternoon, during homeroom, all students will be required to take a career aptitude test.
Jake: Oh, yeah. That'll play.

Chameleon: I took the test once, it said I was destined to be a big star in the pictures. [dramatically self-deprecating] AND LOOK AT ME NOW!!! LOOK AT MEEEE!!! [normal] Oh, wait. It said I was crazy.

Jake: I wanna be an underwear model.
Adam: I almost hate to ask, but, why?
Jake: Cuz I've always wanted to see what it's like to wear underwear.
Adam: But you don't even wear pants.
Jake: Look, Adam, every time I see a monkey on TV, he's either naked or wearing diapers. It's time for me to step up and blaze a new trail for simians everywhere. And that trail happens to involve BIG BOY PANTS!

[Lupe is about to poop on her test, when Miss Chameleon comes in]
Chameleon: Ahem! With a number two PENCIL, Lupe, please!

Jake: Are we finished being depressed yet?

Ingrid: You haven't shown up in class for a couple days.
Windsor: I brought your homework, so you won't fall behind.

Mr. Mandrill: Look, Adam, your test results don't mean it's the end of the world. That's just the man telling you what you can and can't do!
Adam: Really?
Mr. Mandrill: Yeah! You just gotta go out there and prove the man wrong!
Adam: You mean like, find a different career?
Mr. Mandrill: I mean follow your heart!
Adam: So, find a different career.
Mr. Mandrill: Fine, yes, I was trying to be poetic.

[Adam, now super motivated, sets off to find a different career]
Mr. Mandrill: Look out world, there's a Lyon on the loose. [chuckles]
[Mr. Mandrill gets attacked by a lion]

[Adam and Jake are hobos, riding a boxcar]
Jake: Ahhh, now this is the life. Watching the country speed by, eating beans out of a can, with nothing but the clothes on by back, and a bindle full of dreams.
Adam: With nary a career aptitude test in sight.
[Benny enters, from behind]
Benny: Did somebody say, "Career aptitude test"?
Jake: Did somebody say, "Nary"?

Benny: Only after studying a curriculum of liberal arts and sciences consisting of both breath and depth, will you know your true destiny!

[Adam and Jake get kicked out of a moving train and land on the ground]
Jake: Well, at least we landed safely.
[Adam and Jake get attacked by a lion]

Adam: Principal Pixiefrog, I learned something special today from one of the lovable vagabonds that make up this great nation of ours.
