(after Monster tests out Robot's Insta-Travel-Tron)

Robot: Monster! Are you okay?

Monster: I'm great! That was just like a roller coaster, except shorter and with more walls!

Nessie: And the talent show is too dangerous for you?

Monster: I found the perfect hobby! It's really fun, and you won't even get hurt!

Robot: HUH?!

Robot: (after Monster comes home) Well, look who's finally done with Pin-ball practice...

Monster: Done? Oh, I just need another one of these. (holds up silhouette of Robot) Completely obliterated the last one! I must be getting better, it took me twice as long to destroy it!

Perry: I don't like pain.

Robot: Noted.

Perry: And I don't like YOU!

Robot: Also noted.

Perry: You sure this thing won't hurt?

Robot: You'll feel fine! (if it doesn't explode)

Perry: Was that something about EXPLODING!!!!!

(after Perry gets injured from testing Robot's Insta-Travel-Tron)

Robot: (writes on clipbaord) Okay...silver-line sparkplug: no good. (turns to Perry laying face-flat on the floor) So, same time tomorrow?

Perry: I am going to punch you SO HARD!
