We've waited new episodes for 4 months and It was worth to wait this episode. This is the first 2013 episode of Gravity Falls and It was perfect. After Stan doesn't try to be nice to his employees, Mabel decides to make a bet. If Mabel make the most money in 3 days, she will run the Shack for the rest of the summer; If Stan maked the most monet in 3 days on his vacation, Mabel will wear the loser shirt for the rest of the summer. Later Stan goes to the vacation and Mabel starts running the Shack and imprments new bossing methods. Unfortunately, the results are not expected. Also Stan decides to win money from a game show called " Cash Whell". In the game show, Stan finds the answer quickly and the answer is "shut your yaps". It was hilarious. Later Stan spin the wheel and later he get naked for cash shower. Stan was so silly. That part is not for kids. In the Shack, Dipper tells Mabel that he found a monster for tourists. I wonder how he caught the monster. If you look at the monster's eyes, you see your worst nightmare. Later monster escapes from the cage because Mabel give him the key of the cage for his 5 minute break. That was hilarious. The monster starts destroying the Shack. At least Dipper stops monster. He shows the mirror to the monster and the monster sees it's the worst nightmare and he runs away from the Shack. Later Mabel starts acting like Stan and she makes more money but she spend all of the money for fix the shack and they only get 1 dollar. Stan is back to the Shack and Mabel asks how much he make money and he say that he lost all of his money because Stan doesn't find the answer of bonus word and the answer is "please". That means Mabel wins the bet but she gives up from becoming a new boss. I really liked this episode so much and It's definetly one of the best Gravity Falls episodes. Also this episode has some funny moments like when Stan saw all tourists as wallets. Also Dipper tells Mabel that why her mug says #2 boss. I thought Mabel is gonna say that the #1 is Stan but Mabel says "because the real #1 is you", she shows the mirror and Dipper, Wendy and Soos see themselves in the mirror. That wasn't funny but I was surprised. There was only problem in this episode and that was Stan because he doesn't try to be nice to his employees and he tells everyone that he is having a heart attack to enter the game show quickly. Seriously? Having a heart attack is not funny. Shame on you, the writers of this episode. I didn't give a low score because Stan loses the bet. And he sings "The Stan Wrong" song and dances in the ending credits. That was so funny and Stan deserved it. That's why my score is still 10/10. I hope you liked this episode too. I think this was the second best Gravity Falls episode, next to "Fight Fighters". I hope we don't wait the new episodes long time again. 10/10
A great episode. Stan makes a deal with Mabel that she can't make more profit than him when he goes away to play a money-making game show. I'm really digging the relationship between Mabel and Stan.
The episode has complications, such as how Mabel is too easy-going on Wendy and Soos, allowing Wendy to goof off and Soos to screw things up. The monster in the episode was too uncreative; a goblin that you can't look straight into his eyes. Of course, he's defeated with a mirror, Stan looses all of his money, and Mabel wins the bet. There's a great moral; experience what it's like to be in one's shoes before you start judging them.
Overall, great episode with a flurry of giggles. Gravity Falls seems to never disappoint.
It's been a long wait but it was worth it, hopfully this show will be in for the long haul. Anyway, don't to business, this is a Mabel centered episode and it's a very good one, because for once she's taking on the leadership role. It's basically Gravity Falls doing "Glengary Glen Ross".
The plot is almost strangely similar to that David Mamet play/movie, where both are about a sales contest, whoever gets the most money wins and whoever makes less then that other gets fired or in this episode hummulated which may not be as bad but lets face it, do any of us really want that.
It was just fun and funny seeing Mabel in the managment possition. I really liked what she was wearing which was a suit from the 80's since it has the sholder pads, which I've always found strange. Though the main reason she is wearing it is because she is reading a business guide book which is also one from the 80's. I just thought it was suttlely funny, not just as a way to set Mabel up for failure but as ironic satire on the making a fast buck trend in that decade. One of my favorate moments is the homage to the famous . (Always Be Closing) in Glengary, though here it's something different (I'll let you see it for yourself to believe it) it's a long title and the meanings each letter are just as funny.
We see Mabel try and apply her possitive philosophy but unfortunately we see it amounts to disaster and non profit. My favorate disaster is with Dipper whom had an idea of capturing a real unexplained phenomina monster to exibit at the Mystery Shack. It seemed like a good idea at first, but as always reality is a whole different story on our expectations, as we see the monster just tear the place to pieces. It was funny when Dipper turned the power of the monster against itself, when we see it's nightmare I won't say what it is trust me it's pritty darn funny; a monster that actually has nightmares now that's something else. I'll hand Dipper creadit on three things despite the disaster, one finding the monster, two capturing it, and three kicking it out of the shack; I feel it's a primary example that he's got guts.
And at that points it comes down to a hillarous moment when Mabel actually just loses her cool and actually starts acting like a boss. It was just great because you now at that point it's no more mister nice guy/ girl let alone it's just rare to actually see this character angry most of that time she's positive. I could kinda emphasize with that, if things don't go my way or if some isn't doing what their suppose to do, I'm not a nice guy either.
I also liked Grungle's Stan's subplot where he was participating in some "Wheel of Fortune" like game show. And he isn't breaking a sweat as he is effortless winning, and he could of won the jackpot if he just said the magic word which everyone in the globe knows. And of course he loses because he didn't say please, it was just fraking hillarous that he couldn't answer the easist question that you could get probably by not even thinking about it or even a mere accident. But it makes sense he couldn't say that magic word (probably never once in his life) due to his greed and selfish nature; that just goes to show being greedy and selfish all the time isn't always going to get you everything.
And of course Mabel does win in the end by just one dollar, yeah I know not much but better then nothing. But also Mabel learns her lesson that being a boss is hard work. I don't feel her phylosophy on positivity was bad it was just executed incorectly, there needed to be a balance in leadership. However due to what she achieved at the end I felt she turned out to be a good boss but most importantly a good leader.
