Malex's Thoughts

What a turn! A break-in at Malex’s house?! Is nothing sacred? Is nothing safe?

No, in fact, nothing is safe. At least, not while I’m at the helm of this show!

Little do our characters know, this seemingly minor event will send their lives spiraling utterly out of control! (Cue maniacal laughter.)

I’ve been brainstorming for a while now, trying to come up with a whiz-bang story arc for our show. Something classic, but not clichéd. Something dramatic, but not maudlin. Something funny, but not fluffy.

And I think I finally have it! Just the roller coaster we need to stretch our characters and shake things up around here.

So get ready. Things are going to get pretty shaken.

ttyl!

What’s wrong with you? Don’t you know you never juggle babies?!

Transcript

~~ Introduction

Malex: It’s so great to finally be home! I really enjoyed that vacation. Thanks so much for paying for us to go, Snufflefungus!

Snufflefungus: It was nothing! I have enough, I can afford to share.

Malex: Yes. Yes, you probably can.

Linus: (Sighs contentedly.) That was such a great vacation!

Malex: What are you talking about?! You were complaining the whole time!

Linus: And I enjoyed every minute of it! Complaining is my favorite hobby!

Snufflefungus: Well I enjoyed the vacation so much! We saw so many penguins!

Malex: Snufflefungus, we were in Hawaii. There are no penguins there.

Snufflefungus: What? If they weren’t penguins, what were they?!

Linus: Hush! Is that window broken?!

Malex: Holy moley! Has the house been broken into?!

Snufflefungus: (Gasps.)

Malex: Snuffy, you don’t think they were after…

Snufflefungus: My teddy! Teddy, where are you?!

Linus: Not your teddy bear, you half-wit! Your money!

Snufflefungus: Teddy is safe!

Malex: But what about your prodigious stash of cash?

Linus: Did you just say those words? “Prodigious stash of cash?”

Malex: Yeah, what of it? It’s a prodigious cash stash.

Linus: Okay Dr. Seuss.

Malex: Well it is!

Snufflefungus: My money is safe too! I just counted it.

~~ Knock on the door.

Snufflefungus: I’ll get it!

Malex: Don’t get it!

Linus: (Screams.) Whoever it is is back for Snuffy’s incredible fortune!

Snufflefungus: (Opens door.) Hi Mike!

Mike: Hey, you shouldn’t be screaming about all that money. Somebody might hear you!

Malex: Good goin’ dipstick.

Linus: Sorry.

Mike: I just came over to make sure everything was okay!

Malex: Oh really?

Snufflefungus: Thanks so much for your concern, Mike!

Linus: Funny you mention it, Mikester. We appear to have been robbed during our vacation!

Malex: Why didn’t you think everything would be okay, Mike?

Mike: No reason! Maybe– Maybe it was one of them premonitional things! Like when you get free pretzels at the store! You get that sick feeling in your stomach, and you know something bad’s gonna happen!

Linus: Nobody can relate to you. Ever.

Malex: Mike, spill. What happened?

Mike: I– I might have told somebody about Snuffy’s money.

Malex: What?

Linus: How dare you?!

Snufflefungus: I like sunshine!

Malex: Snuffy, try to focus.

Snufflefungus: Oh yeah! (Growls.)

Mike: (Sorrowful.) I didn’t mean to do it!

Malex: Maybe this isn’t so bad. Mike, who did you tell?

Mike: Not really much of anybody! I only told my closest… people who were drinking at the bar I was drinking at.

Malex: How many people was that?

Mike: (Desperate.) Two or three dozen?

Linus: I think we should string you up by your eyelids.

Mike: How would I blink?

Linus: You’d figure it out.

Mike: I think that would hurt.

Linus: That would be the point!

Malex: We’re not doing that! Look, Mike, how much detail did you give them?

Mike: Well, a couple of them had me write down your address. And another couple of them have been following me all week. (Hurriedly.) But I gave them the slip!

Snufflefungus: Is that them in the car outside?

Mike: Yup! Hey fellas!

Snufflefungus: They look like great friends!

Linus: Snuffy, they just scowled menacingly and drove away.

Snufflefungus: Yeah!

Malex: Well, Mike, thanks for… Uh… Fessing up. They obviously haven’t found Snuffy’s underground vault yet, so hopefully this will all blow over soon.

Linus: Yeah! Optimism for the win!

Malex: Shut up.

Mike: So I’m off the hook now?

Linus: Not a chance.

Mike is so incompetent.

Snuffy's growl is adorable! Awwww! :-*

Don't you just hate that.

Everything looks perfect from far away.

LOL!!!!

That was a GREAT episode! I laughed out loud quite a few times XD

I personally love it when Malex calls Linus names. I don't have any clue why but it strikes me as really really funny. XD

Malex seems especially...short-tempered and....RHYMEY!!!! I love that part about the "stash of cash"

XD

And then Linus' lines

Linus: (Screams.) Whoever it is is back for Snuffy’s incredible fortune!

XD XD that's a fail XD

Linus: Nobody can relate to you. Ever.

Linus: Yeah! Optimism for the win!

First of all, this is just an amazing line. "For the win" is one of my favorites XD Second...the sarcasm of this is hilarious!

Malex: Shut up.

love it. XD

Mike: So I’m off the hook now?

Linus: Not a chance.

XD

FABULOUS episode. :)

Praise the Lord! Hallelu!

I don't care what the devil's gonna do!

The Word and faith is my sword and shield

And Jesus is Lord of the way I feel!

Trouble ahead

I suspect that our heroes may be in for some trouble in the future. Too much money can tempt bad people! I'm just glad that Teddy is safe.

Linus: I think we should string you up by your eyelids.

Mike: How would I blink?

Linus: You’d figure it out.

Mike: I think that would hurt.

Linus: That would be the point!

That's just mean. But I can understand Linus's perspective.

Great episode, guys. I laughed out loud a lot, too. Although the episode was short, it was really funny.

We should take our comfort from God's word, not from the circumstances of our lives.

Thanks!

XD I'm glad everybody likes it.

*lol*

I liked Mike's line about the premonition...it was pretty funny! I also like how snuffy's first concern was his teddy! :-* Great job guys!

God gave us music, that we might pray without words

I always listen to the Malex minutes but i rarely post anymore because usually I'm running around doing stuff, same with splicky missions and contradictionary. I do enjoy them but my comments always seemed... exactly the same for every episode :P So I don't really bother anymore, even if i really really liked something.

I'd rather waltz than just walk through the forest- Owl City

Peter's picture

Aha

Well I'm glad you enjoy them at least! :D

Your comments are very much appreciated, whenever you have time to post them. :) In fact, comments really help to fuel our work… :-J

I second that.

I had a thought!

I think I know the answer but I'll ask anyway =D

What if someone is on and kinda bored and they want to play a game, say Song Title Game or Word Assoc. Game. Could they post once logged on then as Anonymous and back and forth or would that count as posting it all yourself?

That would be really fun XD

oops

That was me *blushes*

If you're talking about making it clear to everyone that's what you're doing, then that would be a poor use of the system. But if you're talking about really making your comments anonymous, then you're adopting a slightly different level of honesty. (:)

“Timby, I know you’re awake! Don’t lie!” –Nixy (Contradictionary - Party)

I figured as such =D

Alright. I wonder if a random guest would actually play a game (:)

That would be kinda cool ;)

OK, thanks, Qz. I won't do it. ^_^
