The Nature to Nurture Pt. 2
Mrs. Frink starts

Frink: By my calculations, this parrot doesn’t just display repetitive behavior, but communicates with advanced avian intelligence.
Octoparrot: Duh! *sprays ink*
Mrs. Frink: His octopus DNA makes him smarter than your average bird.
Frink: I still don’t recognize his scientific purpose.

The Nature to Nurture Pt. 3
Mrs. Frink starts

Frink: Well, we’ve learned that this invertebrate bird likes to eat fish.
Mrs. Frink: I’m growing to like him as a pet.
Octoparrot: I’m hungry! I’m hungry! *ink spray*
Frink: Well, he’s good practice before we create our own children.
Mrs. Frink: Children… Miniaturize some of your clothes. I have an idea!
Frink: Miniaturize them? But that technology is far too advanced!
Mrs. Frink: We get it. You invented the Shrink Ray…
Frink: I did! But my shrink ray is very sensitive. If you shrink something, you can’t just zap it back and make it big again.
Mrs. Frink: Now that would be something worth investing in.
Frink: *zaps his clothes*

Squeaky Voice Teen: Welcome to the Childrarium. How can I help you?
Mrs. Frink: I would like to drop my son off to be nurtured and educated while I go get a mani-pedi and feel smugly superior to other parents because I’m paying to give my child a head start.
Squeaky Voice Teen: We really appreciate that kind of honesty here at the Childrarium.
Mrs. Frink: I just want the best for my child, Octoparrot.
Squeaky Voice Teen: His name is Octoparrot?
Mrs. Frink: Well, we prefer to call him by his nickname: Octo.
Squeaky Voice Teen: All right, Octo. Time for a fun-filled day at the Childrarium!

Squeaky Voice Teen: I’m pretty sure it was!
Mrs. Frink: *zaps with shrink ray* Sorry, but you know too much.
Squeaky Voice Teen: I’m as small as the toddlers now!

The Nature to Nurture Pt. 5
Mrs. Frink starts

Mrs. Frink: I’m tired of putting in all the work to raise our 8-tentacled crime against nature while you futz around trying to generate cold fusion in your lab!
Frink: I knew Octoparrot would create a divide between us!
Octoparrot: *brawk* I choose neither of you in the divorce!
Frink: I never wanted a genetically-engineered faux-child. That was all you. You HAD to have one, and I supported you in that, but you always knew that I have very important science work.
Mrs. Frink: Yeah, doing what? Robotics?
Frink: Robots are the future!
Mrs. Frink: You just built another robot bartender didn’t you?
Frink: Yes! And Charles can make ice AND serve drinks, thank you very much.  But by Glayvin’s ghost, I can’t get him to stop crushing the ice cubelets!
Robot: *crushing noises* Here’s your margarita, sir.
Octoparrot: Can I get seven more for each of my tentacles?

Ned: Hi-diddly-ho, science-a-reenos!
Mrs. Frink: Ned Flanders! Uh, what are you doing here?
Ned: Everyone in town knows you and Frink are hiding some sort of lab-grown monster.
Mrs. Frink: But how? I’ve been so careful!
Ned: Well, your octoparrot has been spraying ink all around town. But you can all relax. Some archaeologists just discovered a new stash of early Christian manuscripts — the Deader Sea Scrolls. And in it, there’s a new gospel that says abominations are okay as long as they’re cute!
Mrs. Frink: So our little Octo is safe?
Ned: Who’s the cute little octoparrot, who?
Octoparrot: *brawk* Get me away from this weirdo! And from all of you!
Mrs. Frink: Octo’s right. You belong in this world. Go and be free, little Octo!
Frink: So long, son.
Octoparrot: *brawk* I’ll send you a postcard from Rio! *flies away*

One response to “New Year New You Premium Dialogue: Mrs. Frink (and Octoparrot)

  1. Golly!

    I know there are Tappers out there who wanted a Voiced Mrs Frink …. I do, too – but she’s only been in a few Episodes (and the Vocal Talent behind her – Maggie Roswell who also does the voices of Elizabeth Hoover, Maude Flanders, Helen Lovejoy, Luann Van Houten – is known to quit when she isn’t getting paid the salary she wants! She’s not going to voice any characters for TSTO unless they want to pay her, it’s the same reason we don’t have Characters Voiced by Tres McNeille!)

    I had fun with this Premium Character, I typically don’t care for NPC’s but Mrs Frink and Octoparrot doing a Visual Character Task together is funny! 😀👍🏻
