The Third; The Debt

1 We still have 24 hours 'til we go back to school! 24 whole hours of fun! So, what shall we do? Shoot some hoops? Nah, it's boring.
Water fight? Nah, that's boring too and wet.
I know! It's time to play Dodge or Dare! Roll the dice, pick a! Who am I kidding? We're bored of this as well.
Why are these games so boring now? Darwin, maybe it's not the games, maybe we are bored of each other.
NO! Don't say that! It can't be! It's the truth, Darwin and you know it, and the sooner we accept it, the better it will be for everyone.
So what are you saying? You don't wanna hang out with me anymore? Of course I wanna hang out with you.
I'm just saying that things have got a little stale.
So, what should we do about it? THAT'S IT! We should become ants? No, we need to find a third best friend.
Three best friends? Won't that be a bit weird? It's only weird if we make it weird.
Do you find it weird? No if you don't.
OK then, let's get ourselves a new buddy.
My cookie School is full of people and all we've got to do is pick one to be our new best friend.
How about her? How about not? William? I don't know He's just a bit creepy.
Peek-a-boo! Hey Joe! Peek-a-boo! You wanna play with us for a bit? Yeah! Hey guys! Seen this? Wait! Wait! Look at this! Great! I can do other stuff too! See that? I slipped over myself! What do you think? He's a bit of a one-trick pony Yeah, let's go.
Okay, Joe! We'll be in touch! Hey, one more thing! Before you go! Ready? So, how do we play this game, "punchies"? It's easy! You just give each other friendly digs in the arm.
Like this! Your turn has terminated.
Commencing my turn.
Finding a friend is harder than I thought Hey! I heard you're looking for a third.
Yeah, but it's proven a little Stop looking.
I'm in.

Oh, this is so much fun! From now on, we can do everything together FOREVER! Whew, I think we lost him.
Finding a friend is really hard.
Yeah, what do we really want from a friend? Well, they should be athletic to protect us from bullies, rich so we can play with their toys, have a colourful personality and most of all, be really good at listening.
Hey, you guys! I couldn't help, uh, listening to everything you just said, and I uh think you're in luck.
Athletic? Check! Rich? Check! Colourful? Check-a-leck-a-ding-dong.
You know what, guys? I'll be your friend.
Really? Uh huh.
For 20 bucks.
What?! I'll give you a moment to think about it.
I dunno about this, Darwin.
But this is what we've been looking for.
He is perfect! I suppose it's only 10 bucks each.
Yeah About that Can I borrow 10 bucks? Fine Great! Man, this is gonna be awesome! Hey, hey, guys! Wait up! Guys! And then, Tobias said: "I know you are, but, what am I?" And everyone laughed! And then I said: "You" Oh, yeah! And then Tobias showed me this really cool thing where you shake your hands behind your back and say: "Nice to meet me".
And everyone laughed! He's a really cool guy! Well, he's OK, but What do you mean he's OK? He's the best guy EVER! It's not like you've played with him your whole life.
I might as well have.
I feel like I've known him forever.
Gumball! I'm sorry, that must have just flown off my fork.
Anyway, the funniest thing happened to me today: I was going into class when That's great.
Now, tell me more about this Tobias guy.
Everyone, pair up! And make sure it's with your best friend, because we're playing Trustball.
Great! Now I finally get to spend some time with Darwin! Hey, Gumball.
Tobias was just telling me about his new computer-games console.
Yeah, yeah, it’s a Z Station.

All I can think of is Darwin! Go to him! Your best buddy is about to play computer games with someone who’s rich, athletic, multi-colored and a good listener! He’ll never play Dodge or Dare with you again! They will be best friends forever and I’ll just be a memory! I have to get my best buddy back! But it’s too late!

Got it? Got it! We drop these heavy sand bags on to Mr.
Robinson's head.
No! We don't actually hit Mr.
Robinson.
Hit Mr.

Just do what I do.
Oh, man And now, ladies and gentlemen, would you, please, welcome to the stage our second and final act, Mr.
Gaylord Robinson! Good luck, dad! Up til' now, my life's been good.
Treated me well, I can't complain.
Met a woman, raised the kid and every day just felt the same.
But there's something deep inside of me that always wanted to be free.
And now I think the time is right to show you what I mean! I wanna sing! I wanna dance! I wanna touch the sky with my own two hands! If I sing to the world, it'll set me free, and let me be who I wanna be! Dance, dance and sing! I'm gonna give it my everything! What's he doing? I don't know, but it's pretty good.
Now it's our chance to "assassinate" him! as I whisk you off to a wonderland! I'll hip-hop and jive with my heart and my soul! Did Gumball see any of that? down to the bump, to the rock and the roll, I'll Maybe, he'll notice the trapdoor.
I'll fly like a bird if you set me free! Like a skylark on the wing, or a rosebud in the spring, like a gangster and his bling, like fish bait from a sling, like a puppet with no string, like an English feudal king! Like all those kinds of wonderful, wonderful, things! Show yourself, assassin, and fight like a man! Let's try the special effects! Under the seats? Whoa, who is this guy? That's my dad! ROCK ON, DUDE! I wanna be free NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Mr.
