Picture Noodle coming home in tears as a child because some jealous asshole kids won’t stop calling her ugly. She goes into 2D’s room and crawls into his lap to cry hard into his chest. After a few minutes of him just holding her and letting her get it all out, he asks what’s wrong and she explains the situation. He wants to find the right words to let her know that it’s not her problem if people can’t see her beauty and that she doesn’t owe the world prettiness in this first place, that her actions and personality matter the most, but he starts to panic because she’s crying so hard that she’s shaking and her wails are echoing in the room, so he accidentally blurts out “It’s okay to be ugly, Noodle!”, making her cry even harder.
She stomps out of his room, screaming for Russel and Murdoc so she can tell on him.
