Nicole: Uuuuuuuuh. [looks back to see half the town destroyed.]

Random Guy: MY LEG! My leg!

Nicole: No.

Richard: I won The Laziest Person Contest!

Gumball: Then where's your trophy?

Richard: I was to lazy to get it, so I asked them to mail it.

Anias: I won the award for solving the world's hardest math problem.

Gumball: Anyone can do that!

Anias: In ten seconds.

Gumball: Well at least Darwin didn't win anything.

Darwin: Actually… *holds up a book*


Darwin: For being the weirdest animal in Elmore.

Gumball: I've never won anything in my life, why do you guys always get awards?

Nicole: We're just the best at what we do best.

Gumball: Well I'm going to be the best at everything, and I know just who to go to.

Wattersons: *gasp* You don't mean…

Darwin: Gumball! Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Anias: He already has left.

Scary Voice: Welcome to your DOOM! HahahahahahahahahahahahhHahahahah! *coughing*

[The voice turns out to be Zach, who had a walnut stuck in his throat.]

Zach: Sorry walnut in my throat, so what brings you here to my MAN CAVE! *echos*

Gumball: Dude this is an actual cave and your the one doing the echo.

Zach: Oh.

Gumball: I need your help, I need to be the best at something.

Zach: You came to the right place, but first you need to train. [Zach pulls out training wheels.] put these on.

Gumball: Why would I need training wheels?

Zach: To train, duh, also we need a training montage.

[Nothing Happens.]

Zach: HEY, we need a montage here.

[Training montage of Zach training Gumball at: Boxing, golf, basketball, go cart, racing and horse back riding.]

Gumball: Well, how did I do?

Zach: Horrible.

Gumball: WHAT!

Zach: Your results are horrible, if this was for a grade it would be an F one hundred minus. So we're going to the hard stuff.

Gumball: Um, dude don't you think the would be something that doesn't involve you kicking the bucket.

[Zach and Gumball are on a runaway train.]

Gumball: This is a terrible idea!

Zach: Well why didn't you stop me?

Gumball: Because you don't listen to anything!

Zach: What do we do!

Gumball: I think this is the best time to scream.

Zach: Ok.

[Both scream]
