What a beautiful morning.
Ready for another exciting day, Glep? "F" yes! Good morning, Charlie.
Would you like a peanut? No, I'm all good, man.
Uh, my grandma actually passed on from eating a peanut, so I don't really mess with that kind of stuff.
Oh, my.
That's awful.
I'm sorry.
No, it's all good.
You didn't know.
Pim, what are you eating? Oh, just a bowl of peanuts.
Those aren't peanuts.
That's my bowl of worms from my compost.
Oh, I could've sworn they were peanuts.
Give me that.
Pim, you really need to get glasses, man.
You just ate worms.
No, no, I will.
I will get them eventually.
I've just been too busy to go to the optometrist.
You've been saying that for like seven months, man.
Hello? Uh-huh.
Okay, sure.
Boys, I just got a call from a young man who sounded absolutely distressed.
Can you head over and help him before he goes cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo? Sure.
Yeah, we'll gladly help.
You're energetic today, Mr.
Probably 'cause I ate up some of them worms earlier.
It is open.
Um, Smiling Friends.
Are you the guy that called? Yes, I called.
It is I Shrimp.
That is my name.
Hey, Shrimp.
What's going on, man? Sigh.
My girlfriend just broke up with me.
I am heartbroken.
Well, sorry to hear that, Shrimp.
Shrimpina meant everything to me.
I only realize now she is gone I never fully appreciated her.
Aw! Look, man, don't get too beat up about it.
It happens all the time.
We'll help you find a new girl.
Well, I do not want a new girl.
I just want Shrimpina back.
Yeah, Charlie, he can win her back.
I just think he needs to tell her how he feels.
Pim, sometimes it just doesn't work out, okay? She obviously dumped him for a reason.
Hooray! I just reached level 987413 in Mouse Quest.
What if we set them up on a blind date to get them back together? If you think that's gonna work, go for it, all right? But I'm gonna stay back here and help Shrimp's life get back on track.
I'm sure it's gonna work.
Shrimp, where can I find Shrimpina? She works at 153 Meep Boulevard.
Are you really gonna do this? That's the difference between you and me, Charlie.
I believe in destiny! Shrimp, you don't need to get back with your ex, all right? You need to get your life in order.
Only then Excuse me.
uh, will women be attracted to you.
Let's start by getting some sunlight in here.
Aah! Okay.
Oh, sorry.
Okay, we'll start small.
All right.
153 Meep Boulevard.
This is the place.
Number 15.
Could I get the number 15? Sure thing, hon.
Oh, my God.
That's Shrimpina? Um, h-hi.
Hi there.
How's it going? What can I get for ya? Uh, actually, I-I just wanted to give you these.
They're not from me.
They're They're from your secret admirer.
Secret admirer? Oh, my.
This is all so sudden.
I was just in the process of moving on.
This particular person just wanted you to know that he really cares about you.
I like your hair.
Oh, this old thing? Uh, yeah, it's actually just an exposed nerve ending.
But thanks.
Uh, anyways I like it.
Reminds me of a little piece of spaghetti or something.
Oh, you like spaghetti? I love spaghetti.
Especially the spaghetti they make at Spaghetti Disco.
It's ever so delectable.
Oh, well, uh, funny you say.
Your secret admirer wants to take you to dinner there tonight.
Really? Gosh, that all sounds so romantic.
Oh, great.
S-So you'll be there at Spaghetti Disco at 7:00? Sure.
I'll go.
After all, I do believe in destiny.
Oh! Oh, my gosh.
Are you okay? Yeah, yeah, it's fine.
I think I just had a bad batch of worms earlier.
Um, well, all right.
Uh, goodbye.
All right, now that we've got you out of the house, the next thing is dressing like an actual adult.
All right, first off, just number one, ditch the mouse shirt, dude.
Just get rid of it.
I do hope that Shrimpina likes my cool new attire.
Look, I told you, man, you need to get over her, okay? There's plenty more fish in the sea.
How do I look, Yellow Man? Y-You look like you're about to tell your friend not to come to school tomorrow, man.
Uh, but that's nothing a tan can't fix.
Wow, look at that.
Um, you've got that iconic shrimp glow that everyone's talking about.
Mmm! Cooked shrimp.
Mmm! Dude, you just let that guy take a bite out of you.
Why didn't you fight back? I am too scared of confrontation.
Ah! You know what? I think I finally know what your main problem is.
The single best thing you could do to get your life in order and be attractive to chicks is to get in shape and become an alpha male like me.
Okay, Shrimp, uh, the easiest thing to start with is probably this 100-pound squat.
Yeah, no, w-what you need to do is get your posture right.
Y-You need to straighten your back and be aware of your foot placement, 'cause your feet are all wrong.
Oh, yeah.
Thanks, man.
Center of gravity should be on your heels.
Yeah, like, for sure.
I mean, 'cause what you're doing, the way you're doing that, you're gonna pull something if you keep doing it that way.
Okay, thank you.
We got it.
We got it.
Um, I also We got it, man.
Don't listen to him.
He's just showing off.
All right, now do it the way I told you to do it.
Spaghetti Disco, 7:00, wine and music perfect.
After this date, I'm sure Shrimpina will realize who she's meant to be with meant to be with.
Hey, Pim, how's the date thing going? Well, actually she said she wasn't interested.
There's not gonna be a date.
Oh, well, at least you tried.
Anyways, you want to come help me with Shrimp? No, it's all right.
You can finish the job without me.
What did the pink man say? When do I get to see my Shrimpina again? Look, I hate to be the one that breaks this to you, Shrimp, but, um, I don't think she wants to see you again, man.
I am going to be alone forever.
Why don't we go out for a drink, man? It's on me.
Oh, God.
I don't know if this is right.
I've got to get out of here.
Oh, it's you.
Is my secret admirer here yet? Yeah.
Uh, look, before I get into any of that, I just wanted to tell you, when I first came to your work, it was for a different reason.
But when I saw you, I felt something I've never experienced before.
And I know this sounds crazy, but Oh, my God.
Charlie and Shrimp are here? Goddamn, Shrimp.
You're just, like You're just, like man.
And I ain't even trying to be offensive or nothing like that, but I don't know how you had a girlfriend in the first place.
That is why I do not even bother.
Yeah, I know.
I'm just saying, you're just, like You're just, like, really, really.
I-I genuinely feel bad.
It's not even your fault, man.
You're just a shrimp.
You was born like that.
You was born like that.
You was born a shrimp.
You can't even It's your nature.
So, what did you want to tell me? Uh, never mind.
Uh, come with me.
Your secret admirer is actually over here.
Pim, what are you doing here? Here he is.
Shrimp was your secret admirer the whole time.
This date was actually his idea.
He really cares about you, and he'd love to give the relationship another chance.
What? Shrimp.
Who is that? Your ex-boyfriend Shrimp.
Wait, y-you're Shrimpina, right? My name is Jennifer.
I have never met this woman in my entire life.
Pim, who is this? Where did you meet this woman? I went where Shrimp told me to go, the cafe on 153 Meep Boulevard.
Pim, there's no cafe at 153.
There's a cafe at 158.
You went to the wrong place.
W-Well, wait a second.
What about that thing you said at the cafe about, like, moving on or something? Yeah, my boyfriend Jason died in a motorcycle accident a few months ago.
Jesus Christ, man.
Where is Shrimpina? I have no idea.
Probably at home.
I don't know.
Pim, did you even see Shrimpina one time, once? Charlie, I I don't know.
I guess not.
So, uh, do you like Mouse Quest? Wait, are you serious? You're telling me you're a 4'6" shrimp with a receding hairline who loves Mouse Quest? You're literally everything I've ever dreamed about.
Pim, her name was Shrimpina.
She'd be a shrimp.
I did think that for a moment.
I just thought it was, like, a quirky Like you didn't expect she was going to be a human thing.
Pim, this is so much worse than the worm stuff earlier.
You really need to get your eyes checked, dude.
No, I know, I know.
I'm gonna do it first thing tomorrow.
No, that was bad.
I'm just as shocked as you are, Charlie.
Don't worry, Pim.
I can cheer you up.
It's Smormu! You voted, and we listened.
This cannot be undone.
Smormu is here to stay!
