Plot

Six sixteen year old friends work in the fictional Galleria Mall. They are on their own for the first time and experience a lot with love, jobs, and loads of fun. They really know how to have fun even with their "crappy" part time jobs.

Production

6teen is created and directed through the use of a 2D digital software package known as Harmony, which was developed by the Toon Boom Animation studio in Montreal.[1] Because this software ensures smoother animation and eliminates the need for black trace lines, the program can be fashioned entirely on computer without the use of paper.

The style of writing on 6teen is aimed at preteens and teens. 6teen (the original working title for the series being The Mall[citation needed]) is scripted by a team of writers which includes series creators and directors Jennifer Pertsch and Tom McGillis, Sean Cullen (The Sean Cullen Show), Terry McGurrin, as well as the voice of George Westerholm (This Hour Has 22 Minutes). 6Teen could be thought of as the Friends for the younger set. To formulate ideas regarding subject matter, Pertsch and McGillis interviewed students and took regular trips to the Eaton Centre in Toronto to "observe teenage behavior."[1] On the subject of their work, McGillis concludes:

"Our biggest goal was to connect with our audience. What surprised us was not the fact that kids were watching adult sitcoms, but why they were watching them? They recognize and appreciate smart writing. So, although 6teen's subject matter is aimed at kids, the writing style is classic sitcom, with fast-paced dialogue, and multiple plot lines."[1]

The show's principal characters were designed by Faruk Cemalovic. Original music is composed by Don Breithaupt and Anthony Vanderburgh. There are seven main cast members who voice 6teen. Brooke D'Orsay performs the voice of Caitlin, while Stacey DePass performs the voice of Nikki. Megan Fahlenbock plays Jen, Jess Gibbons voices Wyatt, Christian Potenza voices Jude, and Terry McGurrin voices Jonesy. Jamie Watson provides the voices of Coach Halder and Ron the Rent-a-cop. Additional Voices include Emilie Barlow, Stephanie Mills & Lauren Lipson as the Khaki Clones and Darren Frost as Darth Mall.

Reception

6teen has been generally well-received by viewers. In the Winter/Spring of 2005, the program ranked among Teletoon's Top 10 for children ages six to fifteen and young adults ages sixteen to twenty-five in both English and French markets.[2] It was also the only Canadian production to be nominated for a Pulcinella Award in 2005 under "TV Series for All Audiences".[2] Furthermore, on June 2, 2007, 6teen received an award from the Alliance for Children and Television for being the best of children's television to fall under the age group of nine to fourteen-years that year.[3] Carole Bonneau, vice-president in charge of Teletoon's programming, has remarked about 6teen:

"Aesthetically appealing, with an upbeat musical score, combined with its power to invite empathy from kids towards the main characters, Teletoon is delivering a series that is a perfect match for tweens and teens of today."

In 2009 the show won the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Original Song (Main Title and Promo) for its theme song 6teen. [4]

Season 1

Take this Job and Squeeze It

[Tricia and Caitlin look out into the mall]

Tricia: The mothership.


Caitlin: I'm home.


Wyatt (to Jonesy): You learn everything you know from cop shows and music videos, don't you?


Caitlin: Credit cards have limits?


[In their interviews they are asked why they want to work there]

Jen: Because I've always wanted to start my own line of snowboarding gear and I think that working here would teach me so much about the retail sports industry.

Wyatt: I spend most of my free time here anyway, I figure I might as well get paid for it.

Jonesy: Because the Gigantoplex is a great place to pick up chicks.

Nikki: I need the money to go traveling.

Caitlin: Do you guys have like an employee discount?


[They're asked where they see themselves in five years]

Wyatt Five years?!

Nikki Not working in a mall.

Jonesy (flirting): I know where I'd like to see myself tonight.

Jude: Rock climbing in New Zealand.

Wyatt I don't even know what I'm doing this weekend!

Jen Riding for my college snowboarding team. And competing in the Olympics.


[They're asked what kind of tree they'd be]

Nikki: [Laughs]

Caitlin: Is that the uniform you have to wear? That color really doesn't suit me.

Jonesy: I'd be a Christmas tree.

Wyatt: I guess I'd be ... a maple.

Jonesy: No wait, a dandelion.

Caitlin: I'd rethink the hat, too.

Jude: I thought this was a skate shop.

Jen: I'd be an oak, because they're strong and they like to help people by providing shade from the sun.

Caitlin (cellphone rings): Sorry, this might be important.


[They're asked about their biggest accomplishments]

Jonesy: Getting to second base with Jill Anderson.

Nikki: Perfecting my mother's signature.

Jude: I once ate ten worms on a dare.

Jen: Being the youngest girl to make the varsity soccer team.

Caitlin: I'd have to say my accessories.


[They're asked about their worst qualities]

Jude: My feet sometimes smell ...

Wyatt: I guess I don't have much patience for authority.

Nikki: The list is long ... and distinguished.

Caitlin: When I was seven I had this really heinous orange top ...

Jonesy: I don't have any! I'm a pretty great guy.


Jude: There are bigger friends to fry, my friend.


Jonesy: I have an evil hunger brewing inside.

Jude: Yes, what kind of food could possibly defeat it?

Jonesy: A bird?

Jude: A plane?

Both: No, it's Wonder Taco!


Jen (yelling at Caitlin): Even this grapefruit has more sense than you! At least it knows it's getting squashed today!


Nikki: This is going to be a looong summer.

(After the interview rejections.}

(Ron walks up and by.)

Jonesy: What?

(Ron does an "I'm watching you" hand gesture.)

Jonesy: We were not doing anything! Man, that guy creeps me...

The Big Sickie

Wyatt: If I hear "Bobby's Got a Fry" one more time, I'm going to full on lose it!


Wyatt: I didn't get any sleep last night. I was a afraid to have the dream again.

Caitlin: What dream?

Wyatt: The one about the cowboy who thinks I'm the one who ran away with his wife to the big city and he's coming to kick my-aaaaaaagh! (sees a cowboy and runs away).


Wyatt: So, what are you on probation for?

Jen: I folded some sweatshirts instead of hanging them on the rack.

Wyatt: And you didn't get jail time?



Jude: Jen, it's your duty to take the day off of work. No... it's your destiny!
Wyatt: Destiny?
Nikki: He's on a roll.
Jude: Calling in sick is, like, a necessary part of the evolutionary process.
Jen: What are you talking about?
Jude: Where would the human race be without the sick day? We'd still be living in trees eating bananas... and fish... and things. We're humans because millions of years ago, some ape took a day off and invented tools. That ape decided "I'm not going into the tree today. I'm going to go build a small car out of rocks or teach a cow to give me some milk." Next thing you know, we're golfing on the moon! Which further illustrates my point, because, like, even at the point where the astronauts were pulling this mad historical move, they reckonized the opportunity for goofing off. It's like "one small step for man... dude, let's spin a few donuts in my moon buggy!" The sick day isn't just a fun thing to do, it's a fundamental right of every man, woman and child!
[crowd cheering]
Jude: Where's Jen?
Jonesy: She left a couple of minutes ago.
Jude: Bummer.
Wyatt: Good speech, though.


Wyatt: Great. And I have to spend the afternoon ducking rednecks.


Jude: The sick day isn't just a fun thing to do, it's a fundamental right of every man, woman, and child.


Nikki: Listen up! I'm taking the day off. This may be short notice, but I have this friend who arrived suddenly from out of town. Now this friend, she comes once a month to see me and, quite frankly, I don't enjoy her visits. In fact she makes me kind of crazy! So for your safety and the safety of the fine patrons of the Khaki Barn, I'm taking the day off!


Jude: Jen seems to have lost her perspective in this particular situation.

Wyatt: For once you've made a truly lucid comment.

Jude: No need to insult me, dude.


Nikki (reading Caitlin's sign): "Closed for emergency pedicure"?


Caitlin: You know you are really putting the "itch" in bitch


Nikki: Why is it guys can make all kinds of stinks themselves ...

Caitlin: But can't stand anyone else's?


[Wyatt and Jude are in the loathsome washrooms]

Wyatt: Oh my Lord, why? WHY?!

Jude: Dude, don't look in stall two, whatever you do-

Wyatt: Aaaaaaaaaagh!

Jude: Dude, I told you not to look!


Caitlin (reading Jude's nametag): "Dude I'm totally a paramedic"?


Jonesy: This child is an unholy deamon. I'm sending it back to hell, where it belongs

The Slow and Even-Tempered

Jude (about Wyatt's jacket): Seriously, dude. 1985 called, they want their jacket back.


Caitlin: Retro is so yesterday.


Jude: So, do you know the ending? Who did it?

Jen: Jude, it's a driver's manual.

Jude: So the chauffeur probably did it.


Jude: It's my way or the highway.

Jen: Got it.

Jude: Actually, my way will also involve the highway. But you know what I mean.


Jude: I didn't know you could drive so slowly in this game.


Jude: Remember, it's not just about driving. It's also about killing things.


Jen: I got four points.

Jude: The game's highscore is 75,000!


Jude: Would we have gone to Mars if all we tried to do was be safe?!


Jen: This is a really expensive car...

Jude: Expensive yet free.

A Lime to Party

Jonesy: If there's one thing the Jonesmeister is good at it's getting fired.


[The gang finds out that Wyatt is taking Serena to the concert instead of Jude or Nikki]

Jude and Nikki: GET HIM!

Deck the Mall

Jen (in the elevator): I hate working Christmas! I hate working Christmas! Stupid, annoying, pushy, last minute customers! AAAAAAAAAAAAAGHHH! [elevator doors open] Merry Christmas.


Jude: You're going to make someone very happy tomorrow, Mr. Ball.


Jude (trying to wrap a basketball): Okay, you're starting to get on my nerves, dude!

The Sushi Connection

Jude: Dude! That's so gross. How can you eat sushi?

Caitlin: I don't even like cooked fish.

Nikki: It really is revolting.

Wyatt: Have you ever actually tried it?

Nikki: No, but I don't have to try the public bathrooms here to know that they're disgusting.

Wyatt: Fine, live in ignorance. At least I know what I'm eating. Those fries probably aren't even made from real potatoes.

Jude: Yeah, but you gotta love 'em. The soul cannot live by nutrition alone. Mark my words, dude, mark my words.


Kirsten: We don't think you're doing a very good job.

Kristen: Yeah. You told that girl... the truth! It doesn't say anything about that in the Khaki Barn handbook, and we didn't sell the dress.

Kirsten: You're like the "Khaki... nator"!

Nikki: Oh, good one. "The Khakinator". Oh, I like that. Now get to work.

Kristen: Whatever you say, "ASS MAN"!

Nikki: That's assistant manager! I could fire you for that, you know!

Jonesy: (laughs) Your name tag says "ass man".

Nikki: SHUT UP!

Enter the Dragon

Nikki: Think we can keep the mood swings under control.

Caitlin: What mood swings? (A kid walks past them) Angrily What are you staring at? Come back here; I want to talk to you.

Kid: Crying

Nikki: whistles


Caitlin: Angrily Okay, yes, they're tampons. I'm buying tampons. Man, guys can be such squeamish, little babies.

The Clerk::Slightly irritatedI was just looking for the price tag.

Caitlin::Oh laughs nervously Sorry

One Quiet Day

Wyatt: (to Jude) You just need better time management skills. We all have something we could work on. Jonesy's obsessed with girls.

Jonesy: True, but you never take chances. Ever

Wyatt: I do so.

Jonesy: Name one.

Wyatt: Uhhhh..... sighs

Caitlin: I go way too crazy on sales.

Nikki: Reluctantly I could stop teasing the clones.

Jonesy: exaggerates cough to get Jen's attention to tell everyone her flaw

Jen: Okay, I'm not being conceited, but I can't really think of anything.

Caitlin: Angrily and fast Oh yeah, how about butting into everybody's business and telling everyone what to do all the time.

Jen: gasps

Caitlin: gasps Did I just say that out loud?

Jen: Yes.

Cailtin: Well, you always giving everyone advice and it's not always good.

Jen: Uh, News flash: No, I don't.

Nikki: Uh, This just in: You totally do.

Jen: Here's the weather: Nuh uh.

Jen: Shut it!

Season 3

Prank'd

Nikki: Huh. Who new Jonesy was actually good at something? Besides making out. [ Wyatt gives her a weird look.] Uh, too much information?

Wyatt: Little bit...

Bicker Me Not

Gracie Bickerson: I'm not sitting anywhere near that crum-bum.

George Bickerson: She can fall down a wall for all I care!

Gracie: He's the reason anti-depressants were invented!

George: Her morning breath's the reason gas-masks were invented!


George: You make my skin crawl like I'm wearing a wool sweater!

Gracie: What did wool ever do to deserve you?!

The One with the Cold Sore

Jude: Could be a lip zit. I once had a zit on my back that had a life of it's own. One morning, it was gone... and so was a pair of my shoes.

Baby, You Stink

Jonesy: Hey! Nice call on the cologne spritz, huh, cheater?

Wyatt: What? Since when did you start checking up on me?

Jonesy: Since you started looking twice at water fountains.

Jen: Guys, this Man-Off thing is seriously getting out of hand. It's not about who smells the best anymore; it's about who smells the least horrible.

Nikki: Yeah, and it's getting really gross. Which who be hilarious if it didn't affect me so directly.

Jonesy: I'm not going to give up, unless Wyatt is going to quit for real this time.

Wyatt: As if. The Man-Off champ's either going to be you or me, which is a nice way of saying it's going to be me.

Jen: What about Jude?

Wyatt: I think we can all agree that Jude and hygiene never met on a first name basis.

Jonesy: There are still three days until the Man-Off is over, so don't let me catch you washing your hands in spit, because from now on, spit counts as a cleaning fluid.

J Is For Genius

(Reading the back of a DVD)
Jude: "Lonely and single Karla is looking for more than a one-night stand, but she's looking for love with all the wrong guys." Duuuuuuude... There's sex in H-E-R-E! (laughs) I spelt the wrong word.

Fashion Victims

Nikki: [referring to the girls on her team] Are they gone?

Jen: The coast is clear.

Nikki: Ahh, finally. [She pulls her underwear from her pants.]

Wyatt: Ahh, what was that? [suprised at what she did]

Nikki: That was me pulling my gitch from my butt. It's been lodged there for an hour.

Caitlin: Eww.

Wyatt: Nice.

Jude: I had the same problem, too.

Repeated Lines

Jude: Duuuuude!

Jonesy: Juuuuude!


The Clones: Welcome to the Khaki Barn! Have a Khaki Day!


Coach Halder: Masterson!

Theme Song

Life begins after school. That's when we bend all the rules.

Time to hang with all my friends. We like to be together ... In a place where we belong!

I'm sixteen, starting to find my way. Got a new job, gonna start at the mall today!

Thank God, I'm on my own for the first time!

I'm sixteen, life is sweet. When you're growing up so fast ...

You gotta make the good times last!

I'm sixteen! Sixteen!

Gotta make the good times last!
