  • Green chips, two episodes? Can anyone say pointless?

    These two episodes involving DW's green chip are so pointless. Although it is kinda funny, the episode is so stupid it's not worth anyone's time. Why would anyone wanna watch episodes about green chips? Talk about unoriginal and lame. Don't even bother watching these episodes, you're not missing out on anything.

      Mom: ...was going to kill her. It was just so funny! You know how dramatic D.W. can be. I wouldn't be surprised if she drew up a will. When Bitzi asked if she could put it in her column, I couldn't say "no." I've cleaned out practically every newsstand. Of course I'm sending it to all the relatives! Grandma Thora, Lucy...
      (D.W. imagines Mom's head morphing into a pair of giant talking lips that speak faster and faster!)
      Mom: Aunt Jessica and Great Aunt Susan and Cousin Hortense and Hortense's step-brother Tyler, and of course my college roommate Wilma and her sons James Daniel Mickey-Michelle David Heather of course there's Carrie Christine Shane and Jessie...

    • (D.W. is spying on Arthur and Buster from the treehouse, using Arthur's binoculars, as Arthur and Buster read comics turned away from her...)
      D.W.: Very, very, VERY suspicious! They're keeping their faces turned away, so I can't read their lips. Oh wait, here it comes!
      (Arthur and Buster turn to face D.W. Buster says something, and D.W. deciphers it...)
      D.W.: "Hello... D.W." I need more "sophisticated-ed" equipment!

      Nadine: Your shoes are pretty, but you don't eat them.
