“Toss it to me! Toss it to me!” Private called from across the water.
Kowalski hit the 바닷가, 비치 ball in his direction. The team had decided to take a vacation at Manhattan Beach, and enjoyed swimming in the warm waters in a secluded area away from the humans.
“I’m open!” Skipper called waving his flippers in the air.
“Help!” a voice called in the distance.
Skipper turned his head to listen, which allowed the 바닷가, 비치 ball to hit him in the face in midst his distraction. He glared at Private.
“Sorry,” the young cadet said innocently. Skipper dismissed it and they looked around, trying to spot the 출처 of the sound.
“Someone help me, please!” the voice called again.
“Skipper, there!” Kowalski said pointing down the coast. There was a figure washed ashore in the distance, seemingly immobilized.
“Move out, men!” Skipper ordered.
The penguins swam to 육지, 쇼 어 and approached the figure. It was a 돌고래 라푼젤 in a mess of old, tattered 게, 크랩 netting.
“Are 당신 all right?” Skipper asked trying to see through the mess.
“Yes, but I can’t move! I’ve been stuck here for hours. The 더 많이 I struggle, the tighter the net gets,” she explained.
“Don’t worry, we’ll get 당신 out,” Skipper assured her. “Rico,” he ordered.
Rico regurgitated a Swiss army 칼, 나이프 and Skipper took it from him. He turned to Kowalski.
“Keep her talking. Make sure she doesn’t move,” he ordered. Kowalski saluted as Skipper moved to the net around her tail end.
“So, what’s your name?” Kowalski asked. He couldn’t see her through the netting.
“Doris,” she answered.
“I’m Kowalski. You’re going to be just fine,” he assured her. “Just keep still, all right?”
“All right,” Doris replied uncomfortably.
Kowalski thought for a moment. “So how did this happen?” he asked.
“I was swimming around near the coast and this net just fell on me. I tried to get it off, but it just wrapped around me. I managed to get to the coastline so I could breathe and the tide pulled me in,” she explained.
Kowalski glanced at Skipper, who’d managed to free half of her tail.
“Lucky 당신 were swimming along the coast, then,” Kowalski replied. “You don’t have a pod?”
“No, I like my independence,” Doris replied.
“I see,” Kowalski said with a smile. “Just a couple 더 많이 minutes.”
Skipper cut through some 더 많이 of the net and Rico and Private pulled the rest of it off her. Doris pushed herself up 의해 her flippers and stretched her back and neck. She sighed with relief.
“Thank 당신 so much,” she said turning to them. She raised an eyebrow. “Oh, you’re penguins. What’s a few penguins doing around here?” she asked.
“We’re from the Central Park Zoo,” Private said cheerily. Skipper slapped him. “Sorry, Skipper,” he said rubbing his cheek.
Doris nodded slowly. “Um, okay. Well, thank 당신 for saving me,” she said with a smile. She looked at Kowalski and frowned. “Is he all right?” she asked warily.
Skipper looked at Kowalski, who was staring at Doris with an indecipherable expression.
“Kowalski,” Skipper called. He didn’t respond. Skipper waved his flipper in front of his face—still receiving no response. He slapped him and Kowalski shook his head in confusion.
“Wh-What?” he asked groggily.
“Are 당신 awake in there? What’s your deal, soldier?” Skipper asked folding his flippers disapprovingly.
Kowalski stuttered a little bit before finally saying, “S-Sorry.”
Skipper rolled his eyes. “Come on, let’s get her back into the ocean,” he ordered, dismissing Kowalski’s odd behavior.
Skipper and Private took Doris’ tail while Kowalski and Rico grabbed her torso. Kowalski couldn’t help but notice how soft her skin was. Being so close, he caught her eye and swallowed nervously. They were so blue. He snapped out of it when the others started carrying her forward. When they pulled her into the ocean, Doris 비둘기 under and emerged a moment later, laughing with relief.
“Thank 당신 so much!” she said happily. She turned to them. “I never caught the rest of your names.”
Skipper swam forward. “I’m the Skipper. The cute one is Private, and this is Rico,” he said gesturing to his respective teammates.
“Well, if there’s ever anything I can do to repay you,” she offered.
“Don’t 당신 worry about that, Miss,” Skipper assured her.
“Please, call me Doris,” she replied with a smile. “Hope to see 당신 boys again.”
“Ditto,” Skipper replied with a salute. Doris 비둘기 back under and swam off. Skipper turned to his team. “Good work, boys.” He looked at Kowalski and frowned. “Kowalski!”
Kowalski was staring at the water where Doris had 비둘기 under as if she might resurface there. Stars were in his eyes and he was smiling calmly, as if all was right in the world.
“What’s wrong with him, Skipper?” Private asked.
Skipper studied him. Then he groaned and threw his head back as he smacked his flipper to his forehead.
“What is it, Skipper?” Private asked again. “Is Kowalski ill?”
“Worse,” Skipper said rubbing his temples. “He’s in love.” 52) Planning for the Future [XXIV]
“I just don’t understand why you’re so head-over-tail feathers for her,” Skipper said rolling his eyes. “She’s rejected you—what, nine times now?”
Kowalski sighed. “I don’t know. I just can’t get over her. She’s so beautiful and perfect, and beautiful
,” he said going into a daze. He realized Skipper was staring at him and he cleared his throat. “Anyway, I just can’t give up.”
Skipper folded his flippers. “Okay, I understand that. I’m not trying to down your confidence, but I just don’t understand why she would say yes the tenth time 당신 asked her when she’s already said no nine times. I’m pretty sure she’s not just playing hard to get,” he said regretfully.
Kowalski smiled. “Well, once she sees how much I want her, I think she’ll give me a chance,” he said optimistically.
“Or just think you’re desperate,” Skipper suggested.
Kowalski frowned and rolled his eyes. “You’ll see. One 일 I’m going to win her 심장 and become her 초 husband.”
Skipper arched an eyebrow. “What happened to her first?”
Kowalski narrowed his eyes. “Nothing 당신 can prove.” 53) Family Dinner [XXV]
“Francis!” Doris said as her brother swam to her at the surface of the ocean. “Happy Thanksgiving!” she said wrapping her flippers around her brother’s neck.
“Happy Thanksgiving, dear sister,” her brother replied returning the hug.
“Happy Thanksgiving, son,” an older 돌고래 said as she came over with her flippers open.
Francis hugged his mother. “Happy Thanksgiving, mom,” he told her.
“So, how have 당신 been? We haven’t heard from 당신 in months! I’ve been worried,” Francis’ mother asked.
“Things have been just fine,” Francis replied bittersweetly. “I’ve just been working on a little project. I can’t give 당신 the details, but I assure 당신 it will be heartstopping
,” he said putting a flipper over his 심장 with a grin.
Doris arched an eyebrow, but dismissed the 코멘트 with a roll of her eyes.
“Projects,” their mother scoffed, “when are 당신 gonna make something of yourself, Francis? Your sister here is putting herself out there, looking for a mate. What are 당신 doing? Making projects
. When are 당신 going to settle down with a nice girl? I want some grandchildren before I sleep with the fishes!” she scolded.
Francis rolled his eyes. “Mother, I told 당신 that I’m not interested in romantic relationships right now,” he said impatiently. He’d had this conversation with her a million times.
Doris broke in before the argument could continue. “How about we just eat? I spent all morning catching 물고기 so we could have a nice time together,” she complained.
“Yes, Doris is right, mother,” Francis agreed. “We shouldn’t argue on Thanksgiving.”
Their mother sighed impatiently. “Fine. We’ll have dinner.”
The three of them swam under a dock, where Doris had stashed the 물고기 she’d caught in a 나무 상자, 상자 she near the shore. They started eating.
“So, how many relationships has it been since I saw 당신 last?” Francis asked his sister giving her a sideways glance.
Doris forced a laugh. “Always my brother with a since of humor!” she said. When her mother turned away, she gave him a hard stare and he glared back. They both continued eating like nothing happened when their mother refocused her attention.
“Well, she’s going through a phase,” their mother commented with underlying irritability. “She was perfectly fine going with her own kind when she had to start going out with other species
“Mom, there’s nothing wrong with trying new things,” Doris complained.
“What kind of species are we talking?” Francis asked arching the brow of his good eye.
“Well,” their mother started before Doris could answer, “there was a manatee, an orca, a penguin, a—”
“Whoa, whoa, wait,” Francis said holding up a flipper. “Back up. Did 당신 say penguin
?” he asked.
“Yes,” Doris said with a wave of her flipper, “I went out on one 날짜 with him, but I just don’t think we really go together.”
“Yeah, because he’s not your species,” her mother scolded.
Doris rolled her eyes. “Anyways, he keeps asking me for a 초 chance. I told him we should just be friends, but he keeps pursuing me. I kind of feel sorry for him.”
Francis leaned in closer with an urgent expression. “What’s his name?” he asked narrowing his eyes.
“Kowalski,” Doris answered, eyeing her brother curiously. “Why?”
Francis blinked. Then he eyed the 물고기 in the crate. “Nothing,” he said in a strained voice. “I just 로스트 my appetite.” 54) Court Marshall
Skipper took his place behind Alice’s 책상, 데스크 in the 펭귄 HQ, wearing Mason’s powdered wig and gripping the chimps’ mallet.
“This court marshall is now in session,” he said double-tapping the mallet on the desk. “Our new and improved court reporter is present.”
Maurice sighed. “I still don’t know how to spell, but this is better than waiting on Julien,” he said impassively.
Skipper continued. “Prosecution, what are the charges?”
Private adjusted his tie. “Your Honor, I charge the defendant with reckless obsession and endangering a covert operation!” he said pointing at Kowalski.
“Defense Attorney Rico,” Skipper said, “your response.”
Rico was paying no attention, and instead had found amusement with balancing several pencils on his beak.
“Can I please
have a new defense attorney?!” Kowalski protested angrily.
“Your Honor,” Private started, Kowalski’s request ignored, “let’s go back to the mission in question.”
Private proceeded to explain the situation to the court. The 이전 night, the penguins had been sent a suspicious note telling them to meet an anonymous person at the harbor.
“All right, men,” Skipper said to his teammates as they trailed behind him, “stay frosty.”
Skipper scanned the area around a corner and ushered the team to file out. They ducked around the corner and shuffled along the 다음 wall. Then they leapt onto their bellies and slid to the pile of crates ahead, hiding behind them.
Skipper turned to his men and made a series of hand gestures that told them to 스플릿, 분할 up; Kowalski and Private would go one way and he and Rico would go another. Rico provided each pair with a walkie-talkie. They parted ways. “Team Sauerkraut, report,”
Skipper’s voice said on Kowalski and Private’s walkie-talkie.
“Nothing suspicious, Skipper,” Kowalski replied. He furrowed his brow. “Team Sauerkraut?” “What? I haven’t eaten since lunch,”
Kowalski and Private rolled their eyes. Then they continued their search. “We have a visual on a suspect. Identity unknown,”
Skipper said a few 분 later. “Meet us in Sector Omega Bravo,”
he ordered, “by the 나무 상자, 상자 at the southeast corner.”
Kowalski and Private nodded to each other and started to 옮기기 out. Then they heard a splash in the water over the edge of the harbor 다음 to them.
“Go on, I’ll investigate,” Kowalski said to Private. Private nodded and left as Kowalski cautiously approached the edge of the boardwalk.
“Let the record show,” Private continued, bringing everyone’s mind back to the courtroom, “that the sound we heard that night was none other than Doris the dolphin, Kowalski’s 사랑 interest for seven and a half years!”
“Objection!” Kowalski protested.
“Only your attorney can object,” Skipper said pointing his mallet at Rico, who had moved on from the pencils to creating a paper clip motorcycle. Then he started driving it around his little 표, 테이블 making engine sounds with his throat. Kowalski facepalmed.
“Go on, Prosecutor Private,” Skipper said gesturing with his flipper.
“Let the record also show that he had become so distracted with Doris, that he did not notice his radio become submerged in the ocean, and therefore did not hear our call for backup!” Private explained. He turned to Kowalski. “And what happened while 당신 were busy with your little distraction?” he asked giving him a hard look.
Kowalski fidgeted. “Hans escaped,” he answered quietly, “again.”
“I’m sorry, I didn’t hear you,” Private said leaning in with his flipper cupped around his earhole.
“Hans escaped, all right?” Kowalski answered irritably.
“That’s right,” Private said matter-of-factly as he turned toward Skipper.
“Defense Attorney Rico, care to 십자가, 크로스 examine?” he asked Rico, who now was throwing 더 많이 paper clips at Maurice.
Maurice batted another paper clip away. “Will 당신 quit!” he said angrily. Rico laughed.
Kowalski buried his face into his flippers. “I hate love.” 55) The Root of the Matter
Skipper entered the HQ to see Kowalski’s lab door cracked open. He heard him mumbling irritably inside, but he couldn’t make out what he was saying. He peeked inside to see him pacing in front of a world map that had thumbtacks placed here and there in the Atlantic Ocean with yarn stretched across them.
“What’s going on, Kowalski?” Skipper asked entering his lab.
Kowalski sideways glanced at him, but then he shook his head with his eyes closed as if trying to concentrate. He continued to mumble to himself.
Skipper rolled his eyes and held up his test tube set. “Kowalski, start talking 또는 the nerd trinkets gets it,” he said flatly.
Kowalski turned to him in surprise. “No! Not those!” he said lunging 앞으로 and snatching them from his leader. He cradled them in his flippers. “It’s okay, Daddy’s here,” he whispered as he assured himself they weren’t damaged.
Skipper rolled his eyes again. “You want to tell me what’s going on?” he asked impatiently.
Kowalski looked at him irritably and placed his test tube set at the far end of the 표, 테이블 away from Skipper. “Not really,” he answered finally.
Skipper folded his flippers. “Well, I’m your commanding officer, so I order 당신 to explain to me what you’re doing,” he commanded.
Kowalski sighed. “Um . . . well, I may
have heard a rumor that, uh . . .” He finished his sentence inaudibly.
Skipper narrowed his eyes. “You’re making your ‘lovesick for Doris’ face,” he observed suspiciously.
Kowalski blinked and shook his head, his brow lowering in annoyance. “I do not
have a lovesick for Doris face
,” he objected.
Skipper arched an unconvinced eyebrow. Kowalski broke eye contact.
“What is it this time, Kowalski?” Skipper asked again. “Is she heading for waters off the coast of New York again?”
Kowalski stood his ground. “I said this isn’t
about Doris,” he argued.
Skipper lifted his head and shifted his weight, giving him a hard stare. Kowalski pouted and folded his flippers. Then he cleared his throat. “I may
have heard a rumor that she’s started seeing someone new,” he admitted finally.
Skipper nodded. “Okay, and what’s all this about?” he asked regarding his map.
Kowalski shifted again and studied the floor as if the meaning of life was etched into it. “I may 또는 may not be trying to find her so I can totally not break them up in a way that may 또는 may not be inhumane,” he said tracing his toe in an arc in front of him.
He looked back up with Skipper, who was staring at him with disapproval.
“What?” Kowalski cried defensively. “Don’t look at me like that!”
“Kowalski, 당신 know it’s Doris’ business who she wants to date,” Skipper said.
“No buts, Kowalski! We have 더 많이 important things to worry about,” Skipper insisted. Kowalski tried to protest, but Skipper kept cutting him off.
“No-ho!” Skipper said holding a flipper to Kowalski’s beak. “You need to stop worrying about this so much. 당신 know Doris’ relationships don’t last long.”
Kowalski folded his flippers. “That’s not the problem, Skipper. The problem is that they exist in the first place.” 56) Extinguishing the Fire [XXVI]
“I’ll—see 당신 later, then?” Kowalski asked with a nervous laugh.
Doris giggled. “Looking 앞으로 to it, Kowalski,” she replied.
Kowalski started laughing nervously as the team started pulling him back. He stumbled over his own feet.
“Come on, Kowalski,” Skipper urged. “We need to go home.”
Kowalski looked at Skipper with a smile. “You’re a good leader, Skipper,” he said with slurred speech, as if he were drunk.
Skipper arched an eyebrow as the penguins helped him into the backseat of the car. He put his elbow on the door and propped his face up 의해 his fist with an overly-calm look on his face.
“Skipper,” Private said, “I’ve never seen him like this.”
“He’s been pursuing Doris for a long time now, young Private. Now that she’s accepted a relationship with him, he’s gonna be like this for weeks,” Skipper said rolling his eyes.
“Hey. Private,” Kowalski said to the young cadet that was sitting 다음 to him.
“Yes, Kowalski?” Private asked watching him carefully.
Kowalski hugged him. “You are the cutest
펭귄 ever. I 사랑 you, 당신 little scamp,” he said ruffling the feathers on Private’s head.
“Skipper!” Private protested, like a child complaining about his older brother.
“Kowalski, release the Private,” Skipper said from the driver’s seat.
Private finally succeeded in shoving Kowalski back to his side of the seat. He leaned forward.
“Hey, Rico,” he called. Rico turned to look at him from the passenger seat. “I 사랑 you, too, 당신 crazy nut,” he said reaching for his head to ruffle his feathers, too, but Rico batted his flipper away. Kowalski leaned over the 좌석 trying to hug him. “Don’t fight it, Rico! Come here, 당신 beautiful person!”
Rico started to protest and fought to get the lovestruck Kowalski off him. Skipper started yelling at them to stop, but no one could hear him over Kowalski and Rico arguing.
“You two stop that this instant! I will turn this thing around!”
All of the sudden, a flipper came out of nowhere and came down on the back of Kowalski’s neck, sending him into a happy slumber. Private pulled Kowalski back into his 좌석 and his head rolled to one side, a goofy smile plastered across his face.
Skipper sighed with relief. “Private, you’ve just been promoted.” 57) Security [XXVII]
The penguins sighed with exhaustion as they returned to the zoo. It’d been a long night.
was a crazy night!” Julien said trotting beside them. “How could 당신 four be tired after all that excitement! I mean, I was so
awesome. Admit it.”
Skipper rolled his eyes. “Look, Ringtail, I just got back my memory and
fought a giant iPod controlled 의해 an evil 돌고래 all in one night. I think I speak for all of us when I say we’re beat.”
Julien scoffed. “You guys have, like, zero stamina,” he said examining his paw.
“I’m surprised 당신 even know what stamina means,” Kowalski muttered. A thought occurred to him and he looked up at Julien. “How did 당신 get to my power cell, anyhow? I had it under tight security.”
Julien laughed. “Tight security
?” he repeated. “Please, it was easy peasy to be hacking.”
Kowalski looked offended. “Easy
?” he protested. “How could 당신 possibly have figured out my password?”
“Eh, technically, Mort figured it out,” Julien said. Mort jumped up with a happy cheer and Julien shoved him to the side.
?!” Kowalski repeated in horror.
“Well, I mean, 당신 can’t choose a 비밀번호 that
knows about the 돌고래 lady that broke you. Mort could have figured that out in his sleep!” Julien taunted.
Kowalski started mumbling under his breath.
“You seriously made your 비밀번호 ‘Doris’?” Skipper asked. “I never thought I’d say this, but I agree with Ringtail. That is so
“Well, maybe I was thinking that since it was
so predictable no one would try it because they wouldn’t think I’d be so obvious. Think about it that way? Hm?” Kowalski challenged.
Skipper rolled his eyes. “Kowalski, my spirit guide could have come up with a better 비밀번호 than that.” 58) Practice Makes Perfect . . . Most of the Time
Kowalski cleared his throat. “Um, Doris, uh . . .” His voice trailed and he tried to think of something to break the ice. “You look fabulous today,” he said finally. “Well, 당신 look fabulous every day, but uh . . .” He shook his head in frustration. Then he took a deep breath and smiled.
“Doris! Hey, I didn’t see 당신 there. How’s it going? . . . Good for me, too. I’m all right. So, um, I hear you’re available again and was wondering if—maybe—possibly—you wouldn’t mind—going out with me sometime? . . . Heh, that sounds great. Friday? Eight o’clock?”
He sighed and shook his head. “No, that’s no good.” He looked back into the mirror. He couldn’t help but grimace at the 펭귄 staring back at him. “Come on, 당신 nancy cat. 당신 can do this,” he said, trying to encourage himself. He closed his eyes and breathed deeply for a moment. Then he smiled suavely.
“Hey. Baby. What’s shakin’?” He grunted in frustration and banged his head into the frame of the mirror in rhythm with his self-scolding. “Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!”
He sighed. When he looked back into the mirror, he nearly jumped out of his feathers and whipped around. “Skipper!” he shouted in surprise. “What are 당신 doing here?” he asked nervously looking around the room.
Skipper, who was leaning against the doorframe with his flippers folded over his chest, arched an eyebrow. “I live here,” he replied.
Kowalski coughed. “Right. . . . How long have 당신 been standing there?” he asked timidly.
Skipper shrugged. “Long enough,” he replied. “I take it Doris broke up with her latest fling?”
Kowalski shifted on his feet. “Maybe,” he answered softly.
“No offense, but I don’t get why you’re practicing what you’re going to say when 당신 know you’re just going to trip over all your words when 당신 see her, anyway,” Skipper said impassively.
Kowalski frowned irritably and folded his flippers. “I resent that.” 59) Desperation
“Kowalski, I will do anything
to get 당신 to come out of your bunk,” Skipper pleaded with his lieutenant.
Kowalski didn’t 옮기기 a muscle. “There’s nothing 당신 can do, Skipper. Not even time can mend my broken heart,” he said to the 벽 with his back to him.
Skipper groaned and put his face in his flipper.
“What are we gonna do, Skipper?” Private asked with concern for his teammate.
“I don’t know, Private. He does this every time Doris rejects him and I can never figure out how to get him out of bed. Not even science is a motivation,” Skipper replied.
Kowalski choked. “That’s because in my heart, science comes in 초 place to—” He sniffed. “Doris!” he wailed into his pillow.
The others cringed and exchanged looks. They turned toward the hatch when Julien dropped in with Maurice and Mort.
is with all the crying and the wailing! It is interrupting my mani-pedi!” Julien asked angrily.
“What’s up with Kowalski?” Maurice asked regarding the 펭귄 weeping in the bottom bunk.
“Doris rejected him again,” Private answered.
“You mean the 쇠물 돼지의 일종, 돌고래 lady?” Julien asked.
“She’s a dolphin!” Kowalski complained.
Julien rolled his eyes. “Buddy! You’ve got to pull yourself together!” he said crossing his arms.
“Let it go, Ringtail,” Skipper said. “We’ve all tried talking some sense into him, but none of us have been successful.”
“Well,” Julien started indignantly, “that is because he has not seen—” he leaned against the 벽 and shot a finger gun at the penguins— “the king of love
Skipper tried not to bust out laughing. “The king of love
?” he repeated. He looked at Kowalski. “Well, it might be the desperation talking, but be my guest,” he said holding his flipper out to his lieutenant.
Julien adjusted his crown and cracked his knuckles. “Watch and learn, smelly penguin,” he said before turning to Kowalski. “All right, you! Class is in session!” he said grabbing his flipper and dragging him from the bed.
“No,” Kowalski complained. “Skipper, make him stop!” he said plopping on the floor 의해 his bunk.
“Oh, no,” Julien replied before Skipper could answer. “We are going to get 당신 back in the game!”
“I’ve already lost,” Kowalski said curling in the fetal position and leaning against the wall.
Julien hoisted him up 의해 his under-flippers. Then he slapped him. “You have got to get it together! 당신 think this will make the 쇠물 돼지의 일종, 돌고래 lady 사랑 you?”
“Dolphin!” Kowalski corrected again.
“Whatever!” Julien snapped. “You need to stop all this whining! I don’t have any ideas of what would make a 펭귄 attractive, but I know it is not this! Trust me, I know a thing 또는 two about being attractive!”
Maurice rolled his eyes. “Oh, brother.”
Kowalski tried to pull away. “Julien, I really don’t—”
“Nonsense!” Julien interrupted. “If 당신 want to win this lady’s heart, you’ve got to be smooth! You’ve got to be cool! You’ve got to be confident
! 당신 got to go up to this lady and say, Baby, I 사랑 you!
“I have told her that!” Kowalski complained.
“It is all about delivery
,” Julien said holding up his index finger. “Ladies don’t want some desperate sap that cries like a 고래 every time he gets rejected!”
Kowalski pouted. “I don’t cry like a—”
“Now,” Julien interrupted, putting an arm around his shoulders, “you are going to go up to this 쇠물 돼지의 일종, 돌고래 lady with your head held high and—you’re not going to ask
her out, no!—you’re going to tell
her when you’re picking her up! Do 당신 understand?” he asked pointing a finger at his face.
Kowalski stared at his finger as if he might bite it off.
“Good!” Julien said backing off. “Maurice! Fetch my beauty supplies! We are going to make this 펭귄 irresistible!” he ordered. “Eh, but get the cheaper ones,” he added.
Maurice sighed. “Yes, your highness,” he said heading for the hatch.
“Julien, I am not
going to let 당신 give me a makeover!” Kowalski said angrily. “And I don’t need your relationship advice!”
“Well, obviously, 당신 do!” Julien argued. “On both accountings!”
“Skipper!” Kowalski complained again.
Skipper turned to Julien. “How ‘bout we just stick to the relationship advice?” he implied 더 많이 than suggested. He turned to Private. “Did I really just say that?”
“Pft!” Julien scoffed. “I know exactly
what I’m doing. I am the King of Love! Come, penguin!” he said grabbing Kowalski’s flipper and dragging him to the hatch.
“Julien, I don’t want to—AH!” he cried as Julien tossed him up the hatch.
“Be seeing 당신 guys later!” Julien said before clambering out of the hatch after Kowalski.
“Wait for me, King Julien!” Mort called as he followed suit.
Skipper turned to Rico and Private. “Okay. Maybe I let this get a little too out of hand.” 60) Psychiatric Assessment
Skipper held up another ink blot.
“Hm,” Private said narrowing his eyes, “a Lunacorn,” he decided.
Skipper rolled his eyes and made a note. “Well, I should fail 당신 for that last choice, but I’ll let it slide since you’re expendable.”
Private blinked. “What?”
“What?” Skipper said innocently. Private frowned irritably and left the table. Kowalski sat down next.
“I still don’t get the point of assessing us psychiatrically. What are 당신 gonna do if Rico fails?” Kowalski asked.
“This isn’t about pass 또는 fail, Kowalski,” Skipper replied. “It’s about tapping into your minds! And knowing how 당신 think and perceive things!”
Kowalski sighed. “Fine. Let’s get this over with,” he said propping his head up 의해 his fist.
Skipper held up an ink blot.
“Electron microscope,” Kowalski said after thinking for a moment.
Skipper looked at the blot, and then looked at Kowalski. “O—kay,” he said making a note. He held up the 다음 blot.
“Centrifuge,” Kowalski said.
“What the halibut is a central-fuge?” Skipper asked in an annoyed confusion.
“An apparatus that rotates at a high speed and 의해 centrifugal force, separates substances at different densities,” Kowalski explained.
Skipper sighed and made another note. “Can 당신 give me something non-nerd this time?” he asked holding the 다음 blot up.
Kowalski rolled his eyes. “Fine.” He studied the blot. “Doris.”
“What?” Skipper protested looking at the blot. “This looks nothing like Doris!”
“It does if 당신 put her picture in a kaleidoscope,” Kowalski replied.
Skipper pressed his beak shut and looked from Kowalski to the blots. Then he stood and threw his pencil into the air. “You all pass. I’m done here.”

Inspiration for that came from an episode of iCarly

In The 펭귄 Who Loved Me
