the line about the man in black suits- the secret agents (from the first Ep.) are in every episode in the background

Speaking of which, this episode had more fun cameos with a few Several Timez characters and Toot-Toot McBumbersnazzle.

also looking back there’s a sort of “El Barto” thing with the Muffin-splosion that rOBBIE vALENTINO (RV) paints everywhere.

I bet when the time comes, they’ll capture the Pines family and tell Dipper “You never knew it Dipper, but we were always there.” and go through a series of flashbacks with them in the background and zoom in on them spying on everyone (especially the Pines family).

I hope they do it like this http://youtu.be/xLQXfmiBnHY?t=5s
Just the thought of how similar that twist would be is already starting to crack me up.

Will you ever return from the madness you have embarked towards?!

I sure hope, you don’t! It’s fantastic!!
But one question remains: Will the shorts drive you over the edge, or the waiting for the next episode?

Your guys intro just killed me.

I really liked this episode, yes it was kind of predictable, but we got some interesting character development. Also Multibear joke is best once again.

is episode was co-written by Josh Weinstein, which explains why this episode had a more “simpsons-esque” comedy style to it. Some great lines in this one.

“Like the human version of rat poison”

Really? That makes sense, he writes that whole bored, unfocused teenager dynamic really well. And I guess the episode does sort of have a “Mission Hill” feel to it.

saint22

i thought that whole exchange between seuss and stan had to be written by someone that clever
“Let her ripped”
“Oh no, a letter ripped”
“What the h?”

that made it for me

Now Doug and Rob can now join in the pain fans of the show go through during long hiatuses, once they cover the shorts of course. Mabel ships Candy and Dipper together. That’s a thing. The Key Word is shown with the letters separated during the chase scene. It’s like the show realized the last few episodes weren’t very difficult to find and decided to go on extreme difficulty again. Doug’s probably gotten plenty of comments already, but the explosion was a Robbie creation from episode 5 of the show. And last episode’s comments explained the fingers thing. All in… Read more »

Sporadic is one word that comes to mind when describing the Gravity Falls release schedule. I’m like a worried mother. “You couldn’t just give me a call to let me know everything’s okay?”

Best Gruncle Stan line … “What the H?!”

polarbearjosh
Guest

I’m surprised they did not mention that. That was probably the best line (or one of the best lines) in the episode. It’s also one of the shows more riskier jokes.

The spray painted muffin cloud was done by Robbie. He said he did it in the “Inconveniencing”

“Teenagers all suck. Unless you’re our fans in which case you’re awesome.”

Uhm… thanks?

Not really a fan of this episode. Maybe the ending would have worked if they’d explained their logic better, but as it is, they just go “I guess we’ve learned that we shouldn’t mess with things, so let’s just leave things the way they were after we messed with things.” It doesn’t make a lot of sense. I’m just hoping that this is the last we’ll see of Robbie, Tambry, and all those other guys who are too boring to even remember. Thompson can stick around though; I kind of like Thompson. I know people have already pointed this out,… Read more »

I think you misunderstood the lesson is more not to mess with things anymore once you’ve changed it because you are only going to make things worse.

Truely Funke
Guest

Yeah, what I took was that messing around with people’s emotions isn’t a very good idea and can have unforeseen consequences, so why in the world would doing the same thing over again make it better?

Golden Bluebird
Guest

Exactly my thoughts.

TheomanZero
Guest

The ending message is referring to the government agents, who have appeared in the background of several episodes this season, including this one.

Also, here’s something I found out about this episode: when the Love God is pairing people up at the diner, the original storyboards included a lesbian couple. The network censors forced them to replace one of the women with a man.

Chris_95
Guest

So let me get this straight:
Inter-species love for a joke = fine
Love between two women for a joke = not okay.
Ok…
This logic = me confused and annoyed.

I believe it’s an international community decision because some countries that air Gravity Falls on tv have same sex relationships as illegal.

HanSK
Guest

It’s Disney, what would you expect?

Joshua Fadare
Guest

Actually, not quite true for Disney anymore. They had a lesbian couple one of their live action shows a while back and not as a joke or anything. Just a regular gay couple. It’s more than likely because of the international thing.

Dubtalia
Guest

Don’t forget all the creepiness within the show, words like crotch and suck it are allowed, anything worth nightmare fuels are okay! 8D

I think the old lesbian couple are somewhat hinted in Mabel’s GF model, near the future couples one, but I guess that’s only for a brief one and it manages to get away because it was only figures and goes by fast that some blink-and-miss.

Running With Scissors

I saw something about this, actually. Alex Hirsch wanted a lesbian couple in the episode, but Disney vetoed it, so they gave Mabel a rainbow sweater instead. But Disney also has a really large audience to please, and one person jumping down their throats about what they didn’t do is only saving them from another jumping down their throats about what they did do. For example, Good Luck Charlie was going to have a lesbian couple, but this organization of mothers or something (I’m totally blanking out on what their name is) protested so much it wasn’t aired. (They claimed… Read more »

That’s weird because another Disney Channel show, Good Luck Charlie, featured a lesbian couple. I wonder if the censoring of the GF episode had to do with some of the backlash which came from Good Luck Charlie.

Oh god, I would LOVE to hang out with these guys.

Kinghiki

As far as comedy in the show goes this was my favorite episode. The hipster jokes, the kids being assholes to each other, Robbie’s parents, The Love God, DAT ENDING, even the random 1 liners (especially “you’re like the human version of rat poison” and “gaze upon death”) all hit the funny spot for me.

anyone else hope for a “Goat and a Pig” spin-off?

Goat and a pig. It’s a sin against nature. 😀

I’d personally like to see a series off from that to keep fans satisfied from the end of Season 2 and the possible TV movie finale.

I don’t know about a spin off, but I so need this to be in one of the next sets of GF Shorts.

Goat and a Pig.

“DOES IT WORK FOR PIGS?”

The mushroom cloud is robbie’s painting, it’s suppose to be an explosion but everyone thinks it’s a muffin. It first mentioned on the horror convinient store episode, where they first met wendie’s friends

Deans

This is one of the episodes I enjoyed more second time around. It’s definitely has so much adult innuendo and humor that makes one go, “This is Disney?” The Love God “Let’s get weird!!” the interspecies romance “They’re gonna make a snadger!”, when The Love God is climbing out of his van and two people come out of the van with him, the guy drinking “Hippie Tea” dumping it out during the chase scene. Then there’s the epic “I EAT KIDS” balloon “What the H?” and Robbie’s parents (my new favorite background characters) who are so cheerful about death. Serving… Read more »

It’s probably because Russia (et. al)’s lawmakers are moral guardian fuckwits, and Disney doesn’t want to get their show kicked off the air in the countries that have laws against depicting it.
Unless the handful of people who complained about the lesbian parents in Good Luck Charlie somehow got listened to, I doubt it’s actually the execs having a problem with it.

Deans
Guest
Oh I get why Disney, a company that’s actually very supportive of the LGBT community has to be subtle about it because they are a business after all and unfortunately there’s still a lot of narrow minded people in the world. I still think it’s ironic that in a show where a man marries a woodpecker, among other jokes involving interspecies romance and they can have kids in legit peril, adult innuendos, and other mature themes in a ‘kids’ show and that’s OK, but the moment they try to have a sight gag involving two random women hooking up that’s… Read more »

I must admit that I was humming to the song of Snapple. Hey!… I’m in my late teens AND… I don’t even like a good chunk of teenagers. It depends on what high school you go to. My final high school was AWESOME. Some teenagers are better than others.

Dawn

Speaking of foreshadowing, this is at least the second time we’ve seen a facsimile of Stans head slowly going down in flames (the other being the Stan puppet from Sock Opera).

richard rawlings
Guest

And Stan’s wax figure got it’s head chopped off and then melted after it was set back. And the stan pinatas were also smashed.

bole
Guest

Oddly enough I think the biggest problem with this episode is the Love God, he kind of comes out of nowhere and he’s a bit annoying.

But otherwise I really liked this one, mainly for Thompson, I was totally Thompson when I was at school!

I also really like the way they kept them together at the end, how often in shows like this do you see people put under a spell and then have it lifted at the end so things just go back to spquare one. But here they do something a bit diffrent.

Also best Mabel sweater ever!

ShakespeareanInsults
Guest
This episode was kinda bad for me. Mostly with way Thompson is treated. Yeah he was treated badly before but honestly this episode showed how really terrible he was treated and the ending message was weird so it’s okay to leave two people in love to be in love when they never really had interaction before? I dunno it was just a bit out of character for Mabel to do that and the teenagers are just horrible in this episode even Wendy was a bit out of character. They did really with some of the aspects of this show for… Read more »
ZigTheHunter

Well we know they have been part of the same group of friends for a while, so it can be assumed they have interacted plenty of times before, and I don’t think its that much of a stretch to even say they might have feelings for each other prior to this and only withholding them for typical petty teenager reasons, since the others remark that they make a good couple and they similar personality.

ShakespeareanInsults
Guest

Ehh I guess. But I dunno maybe I’m just analyzing the episode too much

saint22
Guest

this episode in particular has a bad story. the reaction of the group of friends is pretty much bullpoop and even out of character for wendy. the love god has a similar problem. he comes and out of the blue tells mabel he is an actual god (i was like what the fake?) but the comedy is so great it balances all out.
such a funny episode

ToastyMozart
Guest

The jealousy did seem a bit out of character for Wendy. I suppose two episodes back we did find out her laid back personality is partially/mostly an act, but it still seemed out of place.

ShakespeareanInsults
Guest

I agree that Wendy was a bit out of character 😛

darkmetal3

I really find it interesting on how the goats eyes are the exact same shape as Dipper’s eyes when Bill possessed him. Also, they insinuated a 3-way happened between the love god and two other people, when the love god came out of the tent near the end of the episode

S.T.

Robbie and Tambry were already into each other.

Watch the episode again and pay close attention to their interaction when they meet at the diner.

If they weren’t into each other they wouldn’t have sat down together and shared fries.

Truely Funke
Guest

You make a fair point. I could believe that Robbie and Tambry might have been somewhat irritated by each other, but if they actively disliked each other either one or both of them would have left when they saw who they were being set up with.

Truely Funke
Guest
I really like this episode. I’m quite happy that Robbie and Tambry are still together at the end of the episode, for several reasons. For one thing, a lot of shows would have split them up at the end just to maintain the status quo, and I respect a show that is willing to let the characters and their relationships grow and change rather than forcing them to remain static. For another thing it feels more in keeping with the general lesson of the episode: if messing around with people’s emotions can have unforeseen consequences and generally should be avoided,… Read more »

Personally, I think Robbie would be much happier with Mabel… What? Its only a 3 year age difference.

Truely Funke
Guest

Normally, I would completely agree, but I think three years is a kind of significant difference when one party is 12 and the other is 15. That said though, I completely support the idea of a slightly older Mabel and Robbie being together.

ToastyMozart
Guest

Age gaps -are- pretty relative. A 25% difference is huge.

Too funny when Mabel left the squirrel as payment for the potion.

ZigTheHunter
Guest

While this episode was only pretty good, Its the first time I think I’ve seen a stories where two characters are made to love each other through outside means and it isn’t reversed by the end. And I kinda like it, mainly because I think that Tambry and Robbie probably did like each other, but didn’t date because of petty teenager logic, like it being uncool to date someone you were friends with or whatever, and as the other remark, they make a good couple in their own kind of way.

“Mommy, is the floating head going to eat us?!” “Yes Charlie! Yes he will!” Much like with Pacifica in “Golf War”, I appreciate the character development that this episode provided for Robbie. His parents were entertainingly creepy. Needless to say, I found Stan’s hot air balloon to be the funniest part of the episode. I’m not really sure if Mable’s refusal to undo the Tambry/Robbie romance was the right or wrong thing to do. Perhaps she could have instead come clean about the love potion and let them decide if they wanted to continue it. With how bad Disney is… Read more »
ToastyMozart

I figure there was at least something between them already, even though they wouldn’t say so.

They do have similar personalities, and Tambry would probably have just walked right out instead of sitting down and having some fries if she couldn’t stand him.

Doug didn’t mention that Mabel shipped Dipper and Candy. Now, don’t act like you can’t see something coming out of that, cause I have proof. This one is more of a theory, but at the end of Double Dipper, after Mabel said for Dipper to meet Candy and Brenda, the door shut closed (maybe it was Candy?). In Summerween, she hugs Dipper for comfort (that’s gotta be more proof!). In Mabel’s Guide to Colors, they worked together at the waterfall for that mirror thing (not so much as proof, but I don’t think it’s that much of a coincidence they… Read more »

Well now Candip might not be a thing. Apparently, at the CTN panel that Alex went to, he said there’s an upcoming episode where Dipper goes to Pacifica’s house to hunt ghosts or something, and they’ll share a romantic moment or something. You know what, at this point, maybe Dipper should just stay single. With all these shippings of Wendip (they already ended it, remember?!), Dipcifica (Maybe if it’s done right, but I don’t like it), PINECEST (this is just wrong!), and Candip (admittedly, I like it, but sadly, might not happen), just make Dipper single and happy. I’m single… Read more »
