“...Carl, get over here.”

Carl the Animator: “Is it important?”

Ted the Animator: “Yes.”

Carl the Animator: “…more important than opening my new Mr. Meeseeks socks?”

Ted the Animator: Very yes.

Carl the Animator: “Fine, fine, I’m coming.”

Ted the Animator: “Carl, can you explain this?”

Carl the Animator: “Oh. Uhh….”

Ted the Animator: “Well, what do you have to say for yourself?”

Carl the Animator: “It’s, uh… a glitch in their virtual world that just so happens to make them pop in exactly like when an animator forgets to pay attention to where the edge of the frame begins.”

Ted the Animator: “…and you’re ok with the scene staying this way?”

Carl the Animator: Definitely. The kids at home won’t notice.”

Ted the Animator: “Come on, where’s your sense of pride in your work? The satisfaction of a job well done? The honor inherent to the artistic craft?”

Carl the Animator: “At the moment, it’s tucked away inside my Mr. Meeseeks socks, which I’m gonna go open now.”

Ted the Animator: “This is why the show can’t have nice things.”
