  • Episode Description
  • Uncomfortable and embarrassed, Dethklok painfully endures while their parents are in town for a visit. They are at first pissed and doubtful when their parents announce the release of the 'Parents of Dethklok' album, but soon realize the depth of their parents' anger. The guys learn an important lesson: there's nothing more brutal in this world than raising children.

  • Quotes (9)

    • Murderface: I'd rather die than go to heaven.

    • Senator: (introducing Dethklok's parents one by one as they appear on the monitor screens) From Tomahawk, Wisconsin we have Pickles' parents: Calvert and Molly with older brother Seth, a recently released convict. Fom Victory Gardens, the premier armed forces retirement community in Florida: Rose and Oscar Explosion. She's the once lovely Miss Sweden 1956, the brave single mother whose neglect helped form the world's fastest guitarist: Serveta Skwigelf. And the curious and rather off-beat grandparents who raised William after the tragic murder/suicide of his parents: Stella and Thunderbolt Murderface. (Thunderbolt is shown sitting in a child's wagon being pulled by Stella in a riding chair) General: What's the wagon for? Senator: Massive stroke. General: I see... Senator: And last, but not least, from an abandoned village near Lillehammer, Norway: Anja and the Reverend Aslag Wartooth.

    • Rose Explosion: (to Nathan) You remember Mrs. Miller, don't you? Nathan: No. Rose Explosion: Well, they had to cut her legs off. Poor thing. There was an icestorm and the power went out in her house and she woke up with her feet frozen. Nathan: God, Mom, that's brutal. Rose Explosion: Her feet were black, like... uhh... a black person's feet. (adding quickly) Not that I have anything against black people, but this, this was frostbite. And besides, black people's feet are pink on the bottom.

    • Nathan: The fact that my parents had sex in order to create me makes me want to be buried alive.

    • Stella Murderface: Oh, you gutless pieces of living garbage! You think you know what it's like to be brutal!?? (spraying mace into Murderface's eyes) Can you imagine cleaning the feculent cud off this moron's diapers every morning? (sprays more mace into Murderface's eyes) Let me tell you billionaire low-lives something, there's nothing, NOTHING in this world more brutal and grotesque than raising children! Rose Explosion: You ruined my vagina! Serveta Skwigelf: (directed to Skwisgaar) I could never lose the weight after you were born. And look at the veins in my bosom, they're like a roadmap of Stockholm! (scene pans out to show her top down baring her veiny breasts) Oscar Explosion: (directed at Nathan) I used to be happy... until you! Then I started spending all my time with her - and I spent all my beer money on little kid's clothes! That's brutal!
