12 oz. Mouse is an animated television series that aired on the American channel Cartoon Network as part of the Adult Swim late night programming block. The show centers on the antisocial actions of an alcoholic mouse known as "Mouse Fitzgerald", "Fitz," "Butch," or simply "Mouse". The show was created by Matt Maiellaro, co-creator of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and produced by Williams Street for Adult Swim.[1]

The series is animated in the style of crude drawings with limited motion. The usage of firearms, alcohol consumption, and indifferent homicidal acts are common activities of the sociopathic lead character Mouse Fitzgerald.[2]

The plot revolves around a bizarre conspiracy which is constantly building on itself and taking seemingly nonsensical twists and turns. At times the narrative becomes obfuscated or nonlinear, but it simultaneously reveals connections that hint at an objective story. The dialogue is cryptic. Clues and secret messages are hidden throughout each episode, including the credits. Creator Matt Maiellaro has indicated that the development of 12 oz. Mouse was influenced in part by the Theatre of the Absurd, and surrealistic films such as those by director David Lynch. Written in serial format, each episode picks up where the previous one left off.

The series concluded its initial run on Adult Swim on December 18, 2006 with its twentieth episode, leaving the plot unresolved. In February 2007, production began on additional episodes for internet distribution on Adult Swim Video.[3] The first and so far only online episode premiered May 16, 2007.



Listed below are some of the characters found in the dangerous world of 12 oz. Mouse:

  • Mouse Fitzgerald, an anarchic, alcoholic green mouse who does "all things" and obeys no rules.
  • Skillet, a chinchilla who communicates through high-pitched screeches. Skillet has rocket feet and laser eyes, and plays drums. He is Mouse Fitzgerald's best friend.
  • Shark, a ruthless power-broker who manipulates others through fear and mind control.
  • Rectangular Businessman, an arrogant pink square who is preoccupied with his enormous wealth. He is in business with Shark. He wears glasses although he has no eyes, and seems to have no problem seeing where he is going.
  • Roostre, a corn dog farmer with a mysterious past.
  • Eye, a giant eyeball with legs who overemphasizes words and syllables that sound like the word "eye", as well as pronouncing the I's in several words like the word "eye", regardless of their actual pronunciation.
  • Man/Woman, a person who can change gender at will as long as no dead turkeys are around.
  • Peanut, an alleged law enforcement officer whose judgment is strongly altered by constant use of marijuana and alcohol.
  • Liquor, a liquor store owner who secretly knows a lot about everything and performs stand-up comedy.
  • Golden Joe, a teleporting hip-hop artist.
  • The New Guy, a walking umbrella who is obsessed with Skillet and has a taste for lounge music.
  • Spider, a giant piano-playing spider who may know something about arachno-xenomorphentation.
  • Rhoda, The owner and bartender of the only local saloon. Although Rhoda has a low-register voice and is apparently mustachioed it is implied through Shark that Rhoda is female. Rhoda is the first character killed off in the series, surprisingly by the seemingly innocuous Rectangular Businessman.


According to the network, the show is about a mouse named Mouse Fitzgerald (Fitz) who is fond of beer and caught in a world of espionage, love, and the delights of odd jobs.

The show employs a serial format, and its ongoing storyline developed from absurdist comedy to include mystery and thriller elements. Fitz begins to recover suppressed memories that he once had a wife and a child who have now vanished. This leads him to seek answers about his past and the shadowy forces that seem to be manipulating his world. Fitz suspects there is a sinister conspiracy which appears to revolve around fields of "asprind" [sic] pills beneath the city, and Shark, Clock, and Rectangular Businessman's attempts to control the nature of time and reality. Fitz and Skillet receive help from Liquor, Roostre, Stoned Peanut Cop and others as they engage in gun battles, blow things up, and try to understand cryptic hints. The show also sometimes contains surreal "subliminal" images that flash across the screen during key plot moments, including skulls, mustached snake beasts and people screaming. The series concludes with it being revealed that Fitz has actually been kidnapped and placed into a simulation, not unlike The Matrix, by the Shadowy Figure. One of the purposes was to extract information from Fitz. What information is not made completely clear, though it is assumed that since Fitz is a Secret Agent in the real world, it could be information that would threaten the Shadowy Figure's power and stature.

The conclusion to episode 20 is ambiguous as to whether or not it is actually the end of the series, as some aspects of the plot remain unresolved, and Golden Joe says "I thought this was done." Fitz replies, "I thought so too. I guess we're not." This could have a number of implications, either meaning that the show was intentionally left open-ended, or that the series may not yet be over, or that Fitz has unfinished business, or personal demons left to deal with. Earlier in the series, Shark states "It's never the end", and the credits of one episode contains the backwards message "Mouse will never end", foreshadowing the series conclusion.


The pilot episode for 12 oz. Mouse, "Hired", premiered on June 19, 2005 and became a regular series in the Adult Swim lineup in October 2005. An Adult Swim bump shown with the sixth installment claimed that twenty additional episodes were being produced and taunted viewers who had complained they couldn't understand the absurdist series. On December 31, 2005 the "12 oz. New Year Marathon" aired, replaying all six episodes followed by the premiere of the then unfinished seventh episode "Adventure Mouse." The second season aired on Adult Swim on Monday mornings at 12:45 AM EST from September 25, 2006 to December 17, 2006. On May 16, 2007, the 21st episode premiered on the adult swim fix as a web-only episode.

DVD release

A DVD release of the complete series was released February 29, 2008 exclusively on the Williams Street shop. The DVD cover depicts Da Vinci's "The Last Supper" with the 12 Oz. Mouse cast replacing Christ and the 12 Disciples. However, under a black light, the cover depicts the skeletons of the characters, as well as letters and symbols which made an email address, that, if emailed, as of [July 2008], yields nothing. It was first announced to be in production in an interview with creator Matt Maiellaro. The series is presented as a single, continuous movie, with newly-produced footage bridging the gaps between episodes. It also features production footage, new music, episode 13, "Auraphull", in its entirety, and collected fan art.[3]

Production notes

In early airings, the show is also known as "oz. Mo." In the title sequence, the "camera" was so close to the "12 oz. Mouse" title card that only the characters "oz. Mo" were visible. However, it was later discovered that "Ozmo" is the name of an educational cartoon produced by the BBC.

The animation for the character Shark originates from the Sealab 2020 cartoon, from which clips were used to create the majority of the animation in the Sealab 2021 show on Adult Swim. The shark animation first appeared on Adult Swim on the show Space Ghost, which Space Ghost referred to him as "Old Kentucky Shark." The shark later appeared towards the end of an Aqua Teen Hunger Force episode entitled "Escape From Leprauchpolis."

Animation for the series was done by Radical Axis (studio), who also animates Maiellaro's Aqua Teen Hunger Force.[4]

Maiellaro commissioned Lexington, Kentucky semi-professional cowpunk band Nine Pound Hammer to write and perform the opening theme song. Scott Luallen, the voice of Roostre, is also the lead singer of Nine Pound Hammer.


The hip hop duo DANGERDOOM (who specialize in making rap songs inspired by Adult Swim shows and is occasionally heavily marketed during Adult Swim bumps) has a song inspired by 12 oz. Mouse entitled "Korn Dogz" from their downloadable EP "Occult Hymn".[5] The song uses audio clips from the episode "Rooster", with the line "Corn dogs for the pickin'" being recited by Danger Doom's MC MF DOOM and Mouse Fitzgerald. Footage from the show makes a brief appearance in the Aqua Teen Hunger Force film (on the guest monitor on Space Ghost Coast to Coast).

Fitz: Well does it have bullet holes in it?

Fitz: (now with a beer) Well then it's not mine, is it? (drinks)

Peanut: Oh, wait a second! Those are expensive beers! You must have pretty good jobs to pay for those kind of beers!

Fitz: Excuse me, but that bartender just called you a homo.
Peanut: OH.

(Peanut walks over and shoots the bartender in the head with his shotgun)

(Fitz in Skillet ride away in the jet taxi)

Fitz: Skillet, we just spent sixty-four thousand dollars in that bar... So... We're gonna have to get jobs to cover up the fact that we rob banks. But first, I need to get a drink.

Fitz: You need some help?
Shark: Wait. I'll do it.

(Shark flops some more and gets back up to his desk)

(Fitz is wide-eyed again)

Shark: Half and half.

Golden Joe: Uh-uh.
Fitz: There's not one beast in it, but you think there is, okay? He's that good.

Fitz: Mmmm, let's go out later. I wanna drink some. So I can drive.

(Camera shows Fitz driving his Taxi Jet down the road, upside-down with sparks flying all over)

Fitz: But first... this tank needs some liquor.

Liquor: Ah, Fitz, the usual?
Fitz: Yep.
Liquor: That'll be...

(camera shows the rack of beers, labeled thirty cents)

Liquor: Lets see...

(Fitz takes a beer from the rack)

Liquor: Three hundred dollars?
Fitz: Tell ya what.

(Fitz drinks the whole beer, throws down the bottle and the bottle shatters. He then leaves the store) (Close up on Liquor)(Siren Lady emits air horn sound)

Woman: Excuse me. Excuse me, sir. You can't park here. Sir. Sir, excuse me, you can't park that tank here. Sir, you can't park that tank here. Excuse me, sir, you can't park that tank here. Excuse me, you can't park that tank here.

(Fitz shoots the woman with the tank)

Fitz: What'd she say?
Golden Joe: MAN, that was CRAZY AS HELL!

Fitz's Song:
Look at the sun
Over the mountains

Over the mountains

(atop Fitz's tank, which he has driven into the mountains)

Eye: Eye saw you dr-eye-ving the tank.

(Skillet starts screaming and jumping as his ankle band starts beeping and displaying a frown face)

Eye: What in the piss is wrong with your friend?
Fitz: His name is Night Moves. He was born with it, and he loves tanks.

(Skillet explodes)

The continuation of Fitz's song:
Look with me Eye

When you see the sun
When it sets

Shark: Hey, how'd the job go?
Fitz: You know.
Shark: Mhmm.
Fitz: Started it an... and it went on. You know.

Shark: Where's this going?
Fitz: Right here.
Shark: Where?
Fitz: Everywhere.

(Fitz's eyes open wide and he jumps on to the Shark's desk. The New Guy is standing behind them, the sheet making flapping noises)

Fitz: (whispering) Who's... who's the ghost?
Shark: That's the new guy.

Episode 3 - Rooster

Fitz: Oooo... My head... my brain... my... my beer.
Fitz: This is a corndog... must be a divining corndog... it must want... mustard.

Roostre's Song
Some people like to grow cotton
Some people slop them hogs
Me, I do it different
I grow big ol' fat corn dogs
(where's that mustard at)

Fitz: Who are you?
Roostre: Name's Roostre, R double-O S T R E. Sometimes all in capitals, depending on if you're yellin' at me or not. So uh, you yellin'?
Fitz: I ain't yellin'.
Roostre: Well, not yet. See you've found footlong there!
Fitz: Who's that?
Roostre: Footlong! He's my homing dog, got a sense for radar and quaznit.
Fitz: So... your corndog has radar. I knew it! But what would he want with radar?
Roostre: What's anyone want with radar? Everything boy, mouse, whatever. You a mouse, or a...
Fitz: Or what?
Roostre: Or hell I don't know, just thought you were a mouse or something, I mean you look like a damn mouse. The mouse.
Fitz: Maybe.
Roostre: You know "radar" spelled backwards is "radar." Did'ja know that?
Fitz: (wide open eyes, long pause)
Roostre: You're thinking about it ain't ya.
Fitz: Maybe.

(Corndog in Fitz's hand sprouts wings and flies upward and Fitz's eyes grow wide)

Roostre: What the hell?
Roostre: Get me missile command ASAP.

(Rocket launcher emerges from house)

Roostre: Where in the hell does that damn mutt think he's going to?

(Camera goes over Roostre's eye which has a targeting system of the corndog)

Roostre: Hold on you mangy smell hound, here it comes!

(Missile launches)

Roostre: Fire!

(Giant explosion where the corndog is)

Roostre: Hey, uh, you want a beer, or do we need to get twelve?

(A bird lands on Fitz' head)

Fitz: Are you talking to me or this bird?

Eye: I think that I am ver-eye t-eye-red of the t-eye-me
Ver-eye tired of the time
Ver-eye tired of the time
Ver-eye tired of the time
Ver-eye tired of the time
Ver-eye tired of the time
Very tired of the time gas!!!

(He is sprayed by a clock with a green gas)

The New Guy's Song:
Passion hides
In painted smiles
Tropical liaisons
Wet and wild
Mingle and chime
And ladder climb
For glamour and for gold
The jetset meets the maritime
Where love is bought and sold
Storms are surging deep within
Her lying eyes will always win
Dusk to dawn she trawls
And your will is dying (dying)

Shark: Got a job for you.
Fitz: I'm enthusiastic... about all beer.
Fitz: Especially, this one.

(Drinks a beer)

Episode 4 - Spider

Shark: If I were you, I would not check my ice box. I wouldn't check yours either.

Peanut: Are you the one who broke in here... now?
Producer Man: Hey kid, I never have to break in when I am in the Nihm. You know what I'm sayin'?
Peanut: ...nope.
Producer Man: My hea-! (Cut off mid-word)

(Producer Man's head is cut in half and spews blood upwards)

Peanut: Whoaa... Is that ice cream?

(Peanut is drenched in a spray of blood)

Peanut (Whispering): Awesome.

Shark: I've always kinda wanted to be in a band.
Fitz: No way, what do you play?
Shark: I play uh... with minds. Shhhhhh. Go home and think about that.

Shark (referencing a severed hand): You found my record, didn’t you? Now... spin it.

Rhoda (to Eye): And the word is - and I'm not saying this what I think, know, or have heard to be true, but Liquor said that Mouse is up to his cans. Yeah, and not only that, but New Guy heard he got out, right, like someone got him out, and he got a thing for squirrels. Now I'm not talking as though he's cheesy green up on them, I'm saying more like Ecuadorian sleep, if you get the picture. Oh and another thing, Roostre, you know Roostre, up on the farm guy? Alright, well Liquor also says that a letter accidentally got delivered to him, but before he could open it, boom, just like that, clock shows up, next thing he remembers it's day 97.

Shark (to Rhoda): And then something goes off in my brain, and sends an impulse to my jaw, and BAM, a thousand pounds of pressure locked in like a press. I mean, a head your size would burst like an infected kidney, and all I'd remember was how warm the juices were that lapped the back of my uvula on their trip down to stomach-land. But we're friends, right? We know each other. We know what we do, and who we talk to, and what we say to them.
Rhoda: We... do.
Shark: I knew we did. Now let's talk about the letter that Liquor got.

Liquor (dispassionately reading a letter): Dear Dad, I have spent over 10 years and $94,000 putting together my mosquito costume and now I am pleased to announce that I have become a mosquito. The costume is quite realistic and I have even attached bladders to the nose thing so that I can suck up liquids when I puncture them...with my nose thing. I could be buzzing all around you on a hot summer day and you wouldn't even recognize me as your son-child, you would just think, “Get away, mosquito.” From my point of view, you would be 3,000 dads because of the way I've designed the eyeballs. I might be saying, “Dad it's me, Dad it's me,” but you wouldn't be able to understand my language because of its buzzing. I am also into plastics now and I am making plastic tubes that you can suck liquids through; kind of like my mosquito nose, but used for different reasons. Hope you're doing well at camp. See you soon.
Mos... Mos- Mosquito... Mosquitor? Mosqui- Mosquithing. ...I don't know who that is.

Fitz: See it?
Eye: I see... n-eye-n.
Fitz: It was right F-in' here. Where the F is it? It was a... it was a F-in' arrow, and it was right the F here.

Episode 5 - Rememorized

Man/Woman: Stop. Where's everyone going?
Rectangle: Well, first off, all those people are actually following me. Because I have a 7000 mile global head start.

Liquor: I have an idea, and it's a good one.
Man-Woman: Tell me.
Liquor: Go outside, stand in the road, every time you see a car, flip it off.
Man/Woman: What will that do?
Liquor: It'll be neat!

Rectangle: I hope you know how very lucky you are to know me since I'm so incredibly incredible.
Shark: Yeah, I am.

Rectangle's Special Words: Miglo la mofla ferneminen

Man/Woman: C-cells run dry down by the Sea Cell

Man/Woman: You're ending your sentences in prepositional phrases. You'd better stop ending your sentences in prepositional phrases.
Rhoda: Or what?
Man/Woman: I'll make it look like you killed me.

Shark: You're so... talk so much.

Episode 6 - Spharktasm

Rhoda: You have no idea what kind of party is in store for us here.
Fitz: I love a party, with clowns and cakes. You know, I can't remember the last time I was at a party, and that is what's driving me out of my brains.

Fitz: Grab another turkey and put it at her feet.

Roostre's Song:
Was a time
Not long ago
Lived a good life
On the road
Big snout house
Two car garage
Three-piece suit
And a brand new Dodge
But in a wink of an eye
I lost it all
I got some land
Grow corn dogs
So now I'm stuck
On this here farm
Done lost my mind
Then I lost my arm
Grow mean dogs
For the carny trash
Are 'mong the things
I'll do for cash
But my demise
Ain't all my fault
But I reap the 'wards
That it has brought
But I reap the 'wards
That it has brought

(Fitz is assembling his multi-barreled gun)

Fitz: Okay, here's the deal fellas. One of you, all of you, none of you, maybe, know exactly what is going on here.
Roostre: Now Mouse, you don't know what you're talking about.
Fitz: Shut up. Nobody talks. Nobody talks until I...

(he has assembled the gun with most of the barrels pointing back at him)

Fitz: ...figure out what I'm doing with this thing.

Fitz: I've got a lot on my mind, gentlemen. I've got a lot on my mind and a lot of gun in my hand so don't "F" this up.

Fitz: This is all like a puke dream that I can't seem to shake the sweats from, and every time I turn around, there's a shark and a clock... some sort of eyeball thing.

Fitz: Funny thing is, I have these weird flashes, like I've been somewhere before, ripped from somewhere, for reasons I don't understand.

Additional lyrics to the New Guy's song AKA Princess Cruiser performed by Tongo Hiti:
Poolside games for little dames
Once a twister, now you're in limbo
Libido bending hot signal sending, just how low can you go?

Episode 7 - Adventure Mouse

Eye: I'm having fun at your part-eye.
Shark: Yeah, thanks, uh... love it over there. Away from me. In Canada, or farther.

(Talking to The Eye)

Shark: Who told you about the party? 'Cause I dont have people in that often. And you're not even people. You round, wet, unblinking, horrific orb. You're gross. I really wish you would leave my party.

Eye: That's a good show. How does it end?
Shark: It never ends.
Eye: But ever-eye-thing ends, somehow.
Shark: You are becoming a real problem.
Eye: I'm sorry.
Rectangle: Shark, I think he should prove his sorriness... with these.

(takes out a pair of bloody shears)

Shark: Wow. Yeah, that's menacing.

Man/Woman: I have read all these books and they are good books. Out of all these books, I would say that they are all these my favorite.

Man/Woman: Selur eht era selur.

(Fitz falls through a secret passage, and the bookcase hiding it closes behind him. Skillet starts punching the bookcase, and Shark is watching it all on camera.)

Shark: Whoa. Down little buddy. Down. I don't wanna tell you again. I will, but I don't wanna.

(Skillet doesn't stop, and cross hairs appear on Shark's screen. A dart hits Skillet in the neck.)

(Eye hops through the party on one leg, a bleeding wound where the other should be.)

Eye: I hurt! I hurt!

(falls into a pool of his own blood)

Eye: I need help.

(closes his eye as Shark looks on and laughs evilly)

Season Two

Episode 8 - Bowtime

Peanut: It's like rocketry. Your pee is like rocketry because it rockets out. And if you have two rockets, step back. Here go the rockets!

Rectangle: Facades of this expense are becoming unpopular with my investors.
Shark: Your investors are one.
Rectangle: I don't know if you know this, but there are many who make one.
Shark: One is enough--for too much.
Rectangle: Your jealousy overwhelms your reputation.
Shark: My reputation is big time, and recorded; you are eyeless and squared.
Rectangle: Sixty of what you think is a reputation for one is your downfall.
Shark: Well, we'll see about that in due time. Won't we?
Rectangle: Time is due indeed.

Fitz: Just when I think I know what I'm thinking, I get this cloud. I know that when a man has memories, it's just electrical impulses through the brain that create the memories. Because the impulses travel at the the speed of light. Therefore the brain time travels, and that's how he remembers. But how does he feel? How does he feel those memories? How does he feel those thoughts? What-- what time is it?

Producer Man: Ooh, what's wrong little man? You got-- you got-- got some arrows stuck through ya. Ha ha. Zinger! Boing! Ha ha ha. Up top! Let's tour. Am I right? Am I right? Am I right?
Shark: Wrong. Very, very wrong.
Producer Man: Come on Shark, we're a team. It's me and you and we go to the zoo. Right?

Producer Man: Shark, it ain't over. It's me and you and me and you and me and you. Damn it.

(An electric saw sound is heard, and Producer Man's blood starts spreading across the floor.)

Shark: Where's the zinger? We all love to laugh.

Roostre is trapped in a spider's web.

Roostre: Hey Liquor, come here for a second. Um, this is very important. I need you to find my teacher, tell her I need to get back in the boat, and I need to go home.
Liquor: Yeah, it's a web. Get it?
Roostre: Yeah, I get it. Now can you let me outta here?
Liquor: Let you out? No.
Roostre: Why me? I mean, what did I do?
Liquor: You come too close to restarting everything. I know you. You'll set the alarm.
Roostre: I'll set the alarm? Is there a beer down here?

Episode 9 - Surgery Circus

Liquor: Oh good, Square is here. Hi, Square.
Rectangle: Lick it, oval.
Liquor: What's your square pleasure?
Rectangle: You probably don't have it, but it's Rusianik Chyd. It's an old drink of kings of old... kings of old richness. Old.
Liquor: I've got it, but can you afford it... you stupid bobquart!
Rectangle: Excuse me, did you just try to call me a -- bobquart?
Liquor: You? Did I? I did. I think you look like a purple wafer.
Rectangle: Oh really?
Liquor: What I'm actually thinking -- and please take this the wrong way as far up your hole as you can -- is that your gunkultschlinger is the size of a fortmiser's reticulus. Oh, ka-blammo.

Rectangle: He's a rather good shot, don't you think?
Shark: Yes he is.
Rectangle: He was the highest marksman in the class.
Shark: Well I'll be...
Rectangle: I bet you he could probably hit a mite from a thousand yards out in high wind.
Shark: If the wind is high then it wouldn't disrupt his shot, would it? So what's the point of adding that kind of wind? To it.
Rectangle: I was referring to a poor wind that would be low but high in speed and rich money richness, the kind of money speed that would richly affect a bullet's wealthy trajectory.
Shark: Oh.

Rectangle: Just because Liquor's dead, doesn't mean you can just roll this bitch all over town with the "freedoms."
Shark: Yes it does. I'm black now.

Shark: I love me some cookies.

(A large building with the word "Cookies" on it explodes.)

Shark: Just a small taste of my mighty blackness.

Episode 10 - Booger Haze

Golden Joe: You gon' blow my damn head off. I ain't got nothing else, man!

Rectangle: He is watching, you know.
Shark: Then watch on, my brother. Watch as the black shark turns it all the way up.

Green Sweater Woman: I have to pee. I have to pee. I have to pee. I have to pee. I said I have to pee.

(Her head is torn in half and her skull falls out.)

Rectangle: Ooh, what happened? I guess now you have a more serious problem than having to pee.
The right half of Green Sweater Woman's head: That wasn't nice. That wasn't nice. That wasn't nice.
The left half of Green Sweater Woman's head: That wasn't nice. That wasn't nice. You can't kill me.

Roostre (To Spider): Wait a minute. I know you.

Episode 11 - Star Wars VII

Fitz: There's enough guns down here to take out a town about... about this size.

Rectangle (To Shark): Your car sucks... maybe if I throw money at it, it will start.

Rectangle (To Shark): I should have expected this from your poor ass.

(Rectangle gets out of the stalled car and begins to leave.)

Shark: Where are you going?
Rectangle: To buy a harmonica... a very rich harmonica.
Shark: So you're just gonna leave? Not cool.
Rectangle: I just feel ever so inclined to buy a harmonica... made of gold... encrusted in diamonds... then dipped in gold... and rolled around in more diamonds. It's deadly to vampires, you know. Or was it werewolves? I forget which. They're both poor.

(Rectangle's voice fades out as he walks offscreen.)

Shark: ...You are not helping the situation.

Rectangle: I equate harmonicas to the blues... and the blues to the poor, but I still want one.

Shark: You barely piece of suckass car.

Rectangle: I don't even know how to play a harmonica... but I want one.

(Final scene.)

Rectangle: Oh look. I'm back.
Shark: Did you buy a harmonica?
Rectangle: Did you get the car started?
Shark: Did you get your harmonica started?

Episode 12 - Enjoy the Arm

Shark: Hand me that towel.
Rectangle: Why? You're becoming black now... the bad black shark. Remember?
Shark: Hand me that towel please... so I can shove it through your mouth and down into your guts.

Peanut: My blood has turned to booze, and I want my face to turn to booze. If my blood could drink my face, we'd be alright.

Peanut: Joe be honest with me... Is my hat on my head?
Golden Joe: I don't dress your ass in the morning. Shut the freak up!

Roostre (To Spider): You're gonna like the Corndroid... this is one bad fomo.

Rectangle: I don't know if you know, but there's this thing called a clutch... it's down there.
Shark: Yeah, I know what it is and I'm pressing it with my fin... but I easily could press it with your face.

Shark (To Rectangle): I have a feeling something bad is about to happen to you and everyone else, but mainly you.

Rectangle (To Shark): Slow and pathetic... I'm out walking your car. Dumbass.

Episode 14 - Meat Warrior

Shark: So, what's going on?
Rectangle: We were just watching you slither across the floor like the begging, broken dog you are... bitch.

Liquor: Can I get a lift?
Peanut: Uh, OK.. which way am I going... again?
Liquor: You're going downtown.
Peanut: [Whispering] Is there a fire there?
Liquor: You want there to be? There could be.

Rectangle: That idea was genitoid. Even your momma liked it.

Liquor: Are you drunk?
Peanut: You're not.
Liquor: Maybe I should drive drunk, it looks terrifying... to others.

Eye: Eye thought you were m-eye friend.

(Eye gets hit.)

Eye: Ow! R-eye-t in the eye.

Fitz: Wow... jumpy little whore.

(Peanut get hit by a dart.)

Peanut: Ow! That was... awesome!

(Another dart hits him.)

Peanut: Ow! Could I get a couple more of these please?

(Several darts hit him.)

Peanut: I don't even see you man... but thank you.

Peanut (To Shadowy Figure): What? I don't understand a thing you're saying man. Do you have any idea what you sound like? Bluh bluh bluh bluh... that's what you sound like in my head.

Episode 15 - Meaty Dreamy

Rectangle: Oh, that's nice. What is it, fake?
Shark: It's a one-gauge.
Rectangle: What's the damage on that?
Shark: It'll blow your head into vapor while it demoleculizes your bones. That's how fake it is.
Rectangle: Yeah, uh, great. That's uh... What is that, like an Indian burn kinda thing?

Liquor: The dreams, from the meat. That happening to any of you guys?
Mouse: Dreams? Shut em out!
Liquor: Thats the funny thing about them. I can't... (laughs nervously) I can't...

Shark: Yeah. Pusses say what pusses say, for pusses sake.

Shark: The one who says the most says the least. Especially the one next to me.

Rectangle: Where are we now, the Bible or something? The Bible never made money. It's poor. It's full of poor people.

Shark: Load me.
Rectangle: Do you shoot your mother with that gun?

(Rectangle uses his mind powers to cock the one-gauge shotgun)

Shark: Ka-kow.

Rectangle: I told you I smelled fuel. I'm big into oil. I own lots of it and I know what it smells like. It's rich smelling. The smell itself spawns property and mansions.

Shark: I'm gonna blow him away, all the way... away.
Rectangle: If you can find him. Barely find your ass to clean it.

(The one-gauge is aimed at Rectangle)

Rectangle: Do it. Be somebody. Be somebody for the great red one.

(Inside Liquor's meat dream. He stands before Skillet's grave.)

Liquor: You tried little guy. You tried the hardest.

Townspeople singing: Where does the firetruck go, go, go... where does the firetruck go, go, go... and when does the hand know, know, know... and when does the hand know, know, know...

Golden Joe: What's that jimbo kinimbo mean, man?
Peanut: What's the jimbo-kinimbo? [singing] Gol-den-Joooeee~ Never. Stop. Drinking.

Liquor: All weapons cock!

Episode 16 - Corndog Chronicles

Liquor: [hitting Fitz with a club] I said, "What are we gonna do? They're coming!"

(Skillet screams and points a gun at Liquor.)

Liquor: [to Skillet] You. Chill out. I'm not gonna hurt him.

(Skillet screams again.)

Liquor: I'm saving him.

(Liquor hits Fitz again, Fitz passes out.)

Fitz: 109Q. That's line code for... xenomorphinetation.
Roostre: You're gettin' it. Very smart.
Fitz: Arachnid xenomorphinetation.
Roostre: And that's where the dog went.
Fitz: It was added to the report chart, but right before...
Roostre: Before what, man?
Fitz: Before I... [takes out a beer] do this. Watch. [chugs the beer]
Roostre: And who added it to the report chart?

(Cut to a scene of Rectangle standing before the Shadowy Figure in fear.)

Roostre: You told me it was comin', bro. You told me to build the robots and you told me how to do it. Synthetic carbo-polymers got it through, man. They got 'em through, Mouse. They got through and we're gonna get out.

Liquor: Why are you climbing the clothes closet?
Fitz: You know I'm a clothes climber.

Fitz: If I didn't have this many clothes, I wouldn't be able to climb up to this.
Liquor: What is that thing behind that thing there?
Fitz: Some kind of lock.
Liquor: A-wha?
Fitz: It's a lock.
Liquor: Is it?
Fitz: A lock.
Liquor: Is it?
Fitz: A lock.
Liquor: Is it?
Fitz: Lock.
Liquor: It?
Fitz: Lock.
Liquor: It?
Fitz: Lock.
Liquor: It?
Fitz: Lock.
Liquor: It?

Fitz: The hell was that?
Liquor: Uhh... That... That was Amalockh.
Fitz: Ama-what?
Liquor: Amalockh.
Fitz: What's he do?
Liquor: [laughing] H-he kills us. [...] He kills us all.
Fitz: Well. Then let's kill him back.

Episode 17 - Eighteen

(Fitz places a gun to Liquor's neck.)

Liquor: Oh! Hello. That's my neck.
Fitz: How do I know you know what he's typing.
Liquor: How do you not know I don't?

(Fitz aims a second gun at Liquor)

Fitz: You been funny for a while is all.
Liquor: Oh! Did you catch my comedy act?
Fitz: No. Was it good?
Liquor: Dude! It was the shizzle.
Fitz: You know a lot and more than that.
Liquor: Um... Why don't you pull that gun out of my food chute and I'll get us both back home.

(Shark presses a button and Fitz's plane explodes.)

Shark: Oh... that's gone now.

(Shark presses the button again and Fitz's house explodes.)

Shark: Nnnnnno more of that.

(Shark presses the button four times and Eye's house, New Guy's house, Liquor's store, and Rhoda's bar explodes.)

Shark: Taste it. Taste it in your mouth, you green freak. I...

(Shark rapidly presses the button, the entire town bursts into explodions)

Shark: the big bang theory.

Eye: You eye-sploded my home.
Shark: Yeah, I did. Your home sucked.
Eye: Eye built it with my own-
Shark: Your own what? You don't have any own. I made the own.

Peanut: [playing with a flame thrower] This reminds me of how fired up I am to help.

(The Shadowy Figure pulls up and speaks to Peanut.)

Peanut: If you want to help me out... gimme the darts.

(Peanut it hit with an 'Xtra Strong' dart. His pupils dilate.)

Peanut: Yeah!

Episode 18 - Pre-reckoning

Roostre: Well, if it ain't the Motly Mots.
Liquor: What up, Roost-aire?
Roostre: I remember you. You hit me in the head!
Liquor: Yeah! But, you know. I had a reason.

Eye: What if it were to move?
Shark: What if what moves, you... sack?

Shark: How much would you give to control a lifetime of time in a frozen segment of timelessness? Trillions of molecules makin' up life forms in space.

Shark: [to Clock] What do you mean you're out of the gas?

(The clock ticks.)

Shark: Well, I have armies coming, so... this is uncool.

Peanut: I wonder what time it is. I think it's beer time! That's what me thinks!

Peanut: Whoa, bro. Put these on.
Fitz: What is this?
Peanut: It's anti-anti-language gas. I made it from...

(Peanut breathes heavily in the mask.)

Peanut: Propane!
Fitz: Well, we need to kill that shark.
Peanut: Right now, broham? [breathes heavily in the mask] It's pretty good gas!

Liquor: Get 'er going. We're running out of no time.

Out of my way, I'm drunk as hell!
