You Are Getting Very Sleepy, Pt. 1
Mesmerino: You are a competent and effective therapist who helps people solve their problems.
Marvin Monroe: Help… problems…
Mesmerino: When you awaken, you will forget this conversation and once again believe that hypnotism is just a trick.
Marvin Monroe: Trick…
Marvin Monroe: Huh? Oh, you! My hypnotist client with no insurance. I thought I had a restraining order on you.
Mesmerino: Mesmerino, at your service.
Marvin Monroe: I see that you have, once again, failed to prove that hypnotism is anything other than a charade. I’ll be going now.
Mesmerino: So sorry to disappoint you. Time to fill out another insurance claim form.
Make Mesmerino File Insurance Paperwork for Marvin’s Visit- 4hrs
Make Marvin Monroe Remain Obliviously Hypnotized- 4hrs

Make Mesmerino Practice Hypnotism- 4hrs
Mesmerino: I should really invest in a camera setup.
You Are Getting Very Sleepy, Pt. 3

Make Springfielders Get Hypnotized- x5. 4hrs
Mesmerino: Barkeep, can I get one Duff?
Moe: Hey, no hypnotists allowed — read the sign.
Mesmerino: Hmm, you actually have a “no hypnotists allowed” sign. How peculiar…
Moe: Okay, the sign has been established, so what are you waitin’ for — get outta here!
Mesmerino: Before I depart, I seem to have found a watch on the ground. *holds watch in front of Moe’s face* Could you stare at it for a second?
Moe: What…what is this? What are you doing to me? It’s like the world has colors again! I can’t…
Mesmerino: Focus on the watch and fall back asleep.
Mesmerino: When you awaken, you will return to normal.
Mesmerino: Now, awaken!
Moe: Whoa! Ahh, that’s better. Misery and depression.
Krusty: Uh, are you the hypnotist?
Mesmerino: Yes, I am Mesmerino.
Krusty: You gotta help me.
You Are Getting Very Sleepy, Pt. 4
Mesmerino: What seems to be the problem?
Krusty: Well, you see… I’m not funny anymore!
Mesmerino: …were you ever?
Krusty: Look, if there’s one thing I’ve learned in fifty years of showbiz, it’s that there’s always one or two women who sit through the entirety of my show, and all that means is that they probably want to come home with me.
Mesmerino: What does that have to do with not being funny anymore?
Krusty: No one is willing to sit through my show anymore!
Make Krusty Perform a Stand-Up Set- 4hrs
Make Mesmerino Watch the Set and Take Notes- 4hrs
Make Springfielders Heckle Krusty- x5. 4hrs
Krusty: And then he fell apart. Just like Blocko!
CBG: Worst. Set. Ever.
Krusty: Come on, it’s a joke!
CBG: A joke has timing, nuance, subtlety. You simply referenced something else with no context, with the subtlety of a brick to the face.
Krusty: That’s what all the comedians are doing these days!
CBG: If by “all the comedians”, you mean “the hacks on late-night talk shows”, then yes. All the “comedians” are doing it.
Krusty: See what I’m dealing with?
You Are Getting Very Sleepy, Pt. 5
Mesmerino: I do believe that I can help you.
Krusty: Oh, good!
Mesmerino: Keep your eyes on this watch. Stay focused on it.
Krusty: Oy veeeeey…
Make Mesmerino Hypnotize Krusty- 4hrs
Make Krusty Drool On Himself While Hypnotized- 4hrs
Mesmerino: You will no longer be bothered when heckled on stage. You will interpret heckling as a positive response to your humor, will ignore it, and continue your set.
Krusty: Heckling… positive…
Mesmerino: When you awaken, you will think that I have made you funnier and will thank me with a generous reward.
Krusty: Thank… no reward… not a sucker…
Mesmerino: It was worth a shot. Awaken!
Krusty: Buh? What? I feel like I just got hit by a truck.
