The Amazing World of Gumball (2011) s05e04 Episode Script

The Boredom

We want food! We want food! It was a day like any other, by which I mean just as terrible as the rest.
All I wanted for us to behave like a normal, civilized family at meal times.
I might as well have wished for it to rain pancakes.
And not just the ones the kids made for breakfast.
We want food! We want Kids, please! It needs to be way louder to have any effect.
We want food! We want food! Is that really necessary? But you work better under pressure.
Anyway, I helped.
You were supposed to salt the potatoes, boil the carrots, and tenderize the meat.
But instead It's okay if it's not perfect, honey.
It's just nice to eat together for once.
We want food! Hmm.
Something's burning.
Oh, it's just your eyes burning a hole in the back of my head.
Well, scratch that.
It's your pot catching fire because I distracted you.
Don't panic! In case of fire, you should stop, drop, and roll! Okay! What the? Somebody get a blanket! Leave it to me! Gumball, grab the tablecloth.
It's getting worse! I got this! That was the moment I asked myself, "How did it come to this? Where did I go wrong?" That's it.
It was the day I met him.
I was on the way to the tournament with Mom and Dad.
Nicole, we need to talk about your report card.
But I got straight A's.
Not here Gender.
Uh, yeah, that's because I'm female.
Being a girl is not an excuse.
What is it with this traffic?! Aah! Dad! Now what am I gonna do? How much time have I got? until your graduation.
your diploma from law school.
And 754,471 minutes until you marry a doctor.
I mean before the tournament! Five minutes.
You'll make it if you run.
And remember I know.
I know.
I love you, too.
No, I was gonna say second place is first place for losers, but, yeah, that too.
Uh, uh Well, it took all day, but I got the job done.
Hey, do you want to hear my song? Wait, you didn't answer my Oh.
Hey, girl, you don't have to run.
I ain't going nowhere.
Mother nature is my doctor.
Prescription hugs! Prescription hugs! Hey, a moment of your time? Hey, you need a ride? Then I realized I was lost.
Huh? Uh, hello? And that's when I saw him.
A little help, please.
That was the moment.
But what if I hadn't turned right? Where would I be now? Well, it took all day Hajime! Thank heavens she's gone.
Okay, I'll try not to dwell on what that says about me.
Maybe I should have listened to Banana Bob's song.
Hey, do you want to hear my song? Okay.
Banana, nana Banana-na You're funny.
Ba-na-na-na-na-na-na-na Ba-na-na-na-na-na Ba-na-na-na-na-na Ba-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na.
Ba-na-na-na-na.
Ba-na-na-na-na-na-na-na.
Ba-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na.
Nicole? Are you okay? Ba-na-na-na-na! Ba-na-na-na-na! Ohh, banana-not.
Banana-na.
Ohh.
Better not.
But what about Harold? Hey, girl, you don't have to run.
Okay, what do you want? Have you lost weight? Your head looks bigger.
What? Nothing.
I just wanted to say I like girls with really short legs.
What? What's wrong with my legs? Wait, are you doing that creepy thing where guys criticize girls to lower their confidence so they'll go out with them? Your way too intelligent for that kind of trick.
Your parents don't love you.
You look better with the veil on.
Hey! So, how do you like the sushi? I-It took me hours.
It's cold.
Let me heat it up for you.
Is that hot enough for you?! Is it?! Is it hot enough?! Is it hot enough for you?! Mm, almost worth it.
Hey Aah! Prescription hugs! Prescription hugs! Hey, there.
Have you ever considered using the power of hugs as an alternative to modern medicine? Hmm.
Uh, makes sense.
The hugs would only transmit diseases faster.
Hey, a moment of your time? Wait, they say a single flap of a butterfly's wing can cause a hurricane on the other side of the world.
So what would have happened if I'd never stepped on Don't worry! A hug will cure you! Ohh, whatever.
They only live for a day anyway.
Hey, you need a ride? No Oh, wait, I do, actually.
Uh, you got a spare helmet? You don't need a helmet when you're cool.
I'm gonna have to write the mayor about how dangerous this park is.
Uh, hello? A little help, please.
I'm Richard.
I guess there was no other way around it.
Nicole.
I know.
So how? Well, I was feeding a squirrel some nuts.
To see where he hides all his nuts.
Okay.
And it worked a little too well.
Okay, don't move.
Aah! Aah! No, no, no, no, please! Okay.
I've got to run now.
Why? To compete.
Why? 'Cause I have to fight.
Why? Because I have to be the best.
Why? So people will like me? But lots of people already like you.
Really? Like who? It's 2:00 already! I'm too late! Ohh! I've got to go home empty-handed.
Not quite empty-handed.
You have a nut.
Huh? Half a nut? Hmm.
What would you do if you were me? If I had done everything you've done? Sleep till I'm 40.
I mean, what should I do with my life? Hmm.
Maybe start living it.
Actually, you know what, I wouldn't change a thing.
Food fight! Oh, no, little man.
This is a food war!
