    -"...Did you come here to kill me?"

    -Bart Oates thinks he and Carl have to kill an actress that was in 'The Terminator.'

  • Former NFL New York Giants player Bart Oates gives advice to Carl about being a better person and improving his life

    I thought that this was an excellent episode of "Aqua Teen Hunger Force". It was a hilarious with no disturbing or violent images. The only violent image was when Frylock was picking Carl's brain but even that scene wasn't that bad and it didn't bug me at all. It was awesome that this cartoon got Bart Oates to guest star in this episode as himself. Bart Oates (who is a former NFL New York Giants player) gives Carl advice on how to be a better person and how to improve his life. Bart Oates gives advice to Carl about exercising and teaches Carl how to control his anger. It was hilarious when Carl was very happy that Bart Oates was injured. Meatwad and Shake being in prison was very funny. It was hilarious when Carl was drowning Frylock in his pool when he got angry at him about Carl's car until Bart Oates told Carl to be nice to his neighbors and Carl listens. It was very funny when Carl went to the cemetery to apologize to Bart Oates. It was hilarious when Bart Oates was actually just a robot (Terminator robot... I think). The ending was hilarious when Frylock was picking Carl's brain and found a pellet inside his brain and it was revealed that Bart Oates told Shake to shoot the pellet on Carl's head. Overall, a hilarious episode of "Aqua Teen Hunger Force". 10/10moreless
  • The best Aqua Teen ever.

    It's a sign of how good a show Aqua Teen Hunger Force is that Carl, the "fourth Aqua Teen", can not only carry an episode, but make the funniest episode ever. This episode is so good, that it has made Carl my favorite character. He's haunted by the ghost of Giants center Bart Oates, who helps Carl become a better person, and carry out other deeds. Bart Oates must be a really cool guy because he's really funny, and he goes along with this episode's bizarre story. Countless lines from this episode have crept into my everyday speech, and I've become a better human being since I've seen it.moreless
  • Just like the earlier season episodes, perfect in every way.

    I must start by saying the ATHF is my favorite show of all time. Every episode in season 1-4 is a gem I have watch many times each.

    When Season 5 started (very late) I was ecstatic only to end up watching the \'Dicksode\' and almost throwing up in disgust. I guess they wanted to flex their \'M\' rating to its full potential and ended up making, not only the worst ATHF, but one of the worst shows I have ever seen all the way through. Many other episodes were equally disgusting. Call me old fashioned but I find implying lewdness much more funny then blatant. \"Hand Banana\" could have been a very good episode if not for the constant use of the word \'Rape\' in my opinion, and MS masturbating at the end of the episode only further detracted. Global Grilling and Party all the Time seemed like week episodes, and probably were, but because of the horrible start to the season seemed to further the thought that my favorite show was dead or dieing.

    But no longer. With the episode \"Bart Oates\" not only is the humor much more pre-fifth season and the language used in moderation, but its funny as hell! It even competes with the best episodes of all the seasons. I can only hope that the Dicksode is out of the creators systems and they can continue to make real beauties like these.

    Also as a side note, this is my favorite incarnation of The Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future.moreless

    • Bart Oates: You want to be a champion, you've gotta go all the way. Listen to what i'm telling you Carl, listen to what i'm telling you.

    • Bart Oates: You want to be a winner? You need to lay off the salty foods, don't drink so much, try some excersise, maybe go out with a woman you didn't have to pay. You know sex isn't everything, neither is the band Boston.

    • Carl: Take the TV, take whatever you need to get by.
      Bart Oates: What are you talking about? I don't need your money Carl.

      Shake: Ok, you're jumping in already.

    • Carl: I don't recognize this place.
      Bart Oates: Carl, huddle up. This is Linda Hamilton's house. She is destined to play Sarah Connor in The Terminator. And Sarah will give birth to John, and he will lead the resistance to the rise against the machines.
      Carl: Well, I mean she's already been in that movie.
      Bart Oates: Well, I've been sent by the machines to get you to kill Linda Hamilton.
      Carl: What're you talking about man? She's an actress.
      Bart Oates: C'mon Carl. Ya gotta do it brother. Ya gotta go all the way. Do it for Tuna, do it for L.T. C'mon man, this is our house. This is Linda's house. We gotta run a trap and you gotta lay a big hurt on Linda.
      Carl: "Lay a big hurt on"- listen to yourself. She's an actress! It was a movie! This is friggin' stupid!
      Bart Oates: "Stupid?" Are you kidding me? Listen man, when I had my knee surgery the computers replaced all my parts with metal machinery. Wanna see?
      Carl: Looks like they did it on a budget. I don't see any computers in there.
      Bart Oates: What?
      Carl: Lotta cans here.
      Bart Oates: Oh man, the computers lied to me.
      Carl: Ah, ya think?
      Bart Oates: Oh no! My whole life is a sham!
      Linda Hamilton's Alarm System: Intruders!
      Carl: All right drama queen, lets get outta here before Linda wakes up.

    • Carl: Look, I am so sorry. I'm sorry that you tried to walk in front of me when I clearly had the right of way!
      Bart Oates: Hey, Carl, you know, that's not really the spirit of this.
      Carl: All right, all right, all right, look...reset. I am very glad that the forensics could not match the paint on your face to the paint on my fender, but I am sorry that you had to pay the ultimate price for not lookin' both ways! I did not wave you on, I was flippin' you off!
      Bart Oates: Carl …
      Carl: OK ... all right. I'm sorry, you're dead.
      Bart Oates: You're in the red zone now, buddy, you gotta close the deal.
      Carl: Well, me answering questions to a bunch of cops wasn't never gonna bring you back--
      Bart Oates: Be a champ. Go all the way.
      Carl: --OK, I'M SORRY I HIT YOU, ALL RIGHT?!? And that's as sorry as I'm ever gonna be. You were old. I could tell!

    • Frylock: OK, Carl look: I felt really bad about your car, so I brought you some fresh parsley and oregano from my herb garden.
      Carl: Oh, great. Weeds. This will help me get to the strip club. Where's my frickin' car?!?
      Frylock: Well, it's kinda been impounded.
      Carl: What?!? (Grabs Frylock and tries to drown him) You tell me right now, Fry Man, where my frickin' car is, or I'm going to rip that paper box head of yours in half!
      Bart Oates: Whoa, whoa, whoa, easy Carl. You don't want a penalty for roughing the neighbor. I mean, that's fifteen yards and that hurts the team.
      (Carl lets go of Frylock)
      Frylock: Whoa, whoa, hey, Carl!
      Carl: (Calm) It's okay, it's okay. I'm not mad. Okay? So, uh... (Pissed off) Where's my F-ing car, please, sir?!

    • Master Shake: Oh, very important. Security code.
      Meatwad: We ain't got none.
      Master Shake: So just go right in.
      Crazy Guy: ...pants stuck to my butt..
      Meatwad: When is Frylock gettin' here?
      Master Shake: I don't know, but I'm pissed about it.

    • Carl: Bam! ...don't worry about this rip. I just uh accidentally ripped it pulling it out of the box.
      Frylock: Are the "Gnats" a team?
      Carl: Nah. "Gnats"? What da frick- it's supposed to be the Giants! I friggin' told them immigrants! No wonder they cut me a deal. What a deal! They probably don't even have giants in their country; they're so frickin' tiny. Look at this crap. Half of them dissolved in the box.
      Frylock: Well, you know what they say "you get what you pay for."
      Carl: I tell ya what: how 'bout I take 20% off.
      Frylock: How 'bout no.
      Carl: Aw c'mon man, I seen you flyin' around so fast. People won't even notice, right? High-five football fan.
      Frylock: I really don't like sports Carl.
      Carl: ..Oh yeah? Well, you're a f**!

    • Carl: Hey Fryman. I got this post-it-note that was left on the curb for me. "Thanks for car. M.S."
      Frylock: Oh man.
      Carl: Yeah.
      Frylock: Ah I'm sure it'll be back.
      Carl: Ya think? That'd be so thoughtful.

    • Frylock: Just tell me what it is you did wrong!
      Master Shake: Oh, what?! You think you did ever--everything right?
      Frylock: Okay. I see what's happening here. You got another DUI didn't you?
      Meatwad: Hang up on his ass.
      Frylock: I'm gonna have to bus down there, okay?!
      Master Shake: I'm gonna have to take the bus from now on permanently! According to what some guy told me. And I ain't riding that cheese box! It's a major deterent for the women!
      Meatwad: Women will not kiss you on the bus.
      Frylock: Okay, look. It's gonna take me awhile--
      Meatwad: Hang up on him.

    • Bart Oates: I was there when you destroyed my poster, and you said, "I hope he gets injured." (Flashback to Carl back in 1994)
      Carl: Enjoy San Francisco, pansy! (Carl rips his Bart Oates poster in half)
      I hope you tear your ACL, jackass!! (Back to present day) Carl: I said that? Bart Oates: Three years later, I had knee surgery, and I had to retire, Carl. Carl: So, I, I made you, like, have knee surgery by saying that? Bart Oates: In a way, yes, you did. Carl: That's awesome. (pause) I mean, I'm sorry in retrospect, but that's so awesome I was able to do that! I hate the 'Niners!

    • Master Shake: I am sooo hungover. Did you see me poundin those daiquiris last night??? I was a maniac, what was I thinking?!?!
      Meatwad: You pounded 1!
      Master Shake: Well, I pound what I can afford.
