  • EJ: If you bite it and you die, it's poisonous. If it bites you and you die, it's venomous.
  • Jeff: What if it bites me and it dies?
  • EJ: That means you're poisonous.
  • Masky: What if it bites itself and I die?
  • EJ: That's voodoo.
  • Hoody: What if it bites me and someone else dies?
  • EJ: That's correlation, not causation.
  • Toby: What if we bite each other and neither of us die?
  • EJ: ...That's kinky.
  • BEN: So, who broke it? I’m not mad, I just want to know.
  • [Silence]
  • Hoody: I did, I broke it-
  • BEN: No. No, you didn’t. Toby?
  • Toby: Don’t look at me. Look at Masky.
  • Masky: What? I didn’t break it.
  • Toby: Huh. That’s weird. How did you even know it was broken?
  • Masky: Because it’s sitting right in front of us, and it’s broken.
  • Toby: Suspicious.
  • Masky: No, it’s not.
  • Jane: If it matters... probably not... Jeff was the last one to use it.
  • Jeff: Liar! I don’t even drink that crap.
  • Jane: Oh, really? Then what were you doing by the coffee cart earlier?
  • Jeff: I use the wooden stirrers to push back my cuticles. Everyone knows that, Jane!
  • Hoody: Alright, let’s not fight. I broke it, let me pay for it, BEN.
  • BEN: No. Who broke it?
  • Jason: BEN, EJ has been awfully quiet...
  • EJ: Really?!
  • Jason: Yeah, really!
  • [Cut to BEN in another room, the rest of them fighting in the background]
  • BEN: I broke it. It burned my hand so I punched it. I predict ten minutes from now, they’ll be at each other’s throats with warpaint on their faces and a pig head on a stick. Good. It was getting a little chummy around here.
Brothers Woods Headcanon

In the original story, Liu taking the blame for Jeff unhinged him. He was the older brother and was always to protect the younger. It was his prevailing identity and main purpose behind the shadow of the perfect family façade his parents were trying to establish. Liu protecting him this time put him in serious doubt of his ability to protect his brother and eroded at the base of his self.
