Episode Summary

EDIT

When Grunkle Stan throws a big party to advertise the Mystery Shack, Dipper uses an off-kilter copy machine to make a clone of himself to be at two places at once. Meanwhile, Mabel stands up for her friends and tries to gain the "Party Queen" title in their honor, instead of having a popular girl and her group win.

  • Almost excellent episode

    9.5
    Like the previous episode, it contains an alright sounding plot. To be honest, cloning plots aren't my favorite because you know what happen in these episodes. The clones take over during the episode had enough humor for me to give a high score. Mabel, Dipper, and Wendy spraying silly string, Soos throughout the episode (mainly when was the DJ and when he finds the lighting sfx), all of Dipper's fantasy, "I shall call you number 2," "Definitley not" (Tyrone knows it means (bleep). Grenda and Candy's lines, clone fight, Dipper's clones stealing Robbie's bike, and Dipper clones' face when they get caught under the sprinklers are examples. Seriously, Soos is the most funniest in the show. He does nothing but crack me up. Everything he does here is hilarious. There were two scary scenes. Dipper's hand coming to life and Paper Jam Dipper. Paper Jam Dipper was freaking creepy and so does his voice. What I hated here was when the clones become a bit of jerks when they locked Dipper in the closet. Though it was only moment that bugged me and the rest of the episode was excellent.

    Score: 9.5/10moreless

    Movie: "Over the Top"



    This is another very good one, it's loosely similar to the underrated movie "Multiplicity". Like in that movie Dippers life isn't on easy street, from is inability to get certain things accomplished on time but most of all not finding the guts to ask the girl he loves out. And so creating clones seems like the best solution, at first anyway.



    I really like the interaction Dipper has with the clones at first it looks like things might get easier for him as certain things are getting accomplished, but as we see things get messy when the clones start to fight each other for Wendy's affections and try to stop the real Dipper. The battle of the clones near the end is fraking hillarous, it's the most pathetic battle I've ever seen I'm not even sure I can call it a battle. We see the Dipper clones just slap each other, miss on punches and kicks, and other pathetic displays that barely resemble fighting.



    The subplot with Mabel I think is really good and easy to relate to, because I had friends like that. I really like Mabel's two new friends, just like Mabel their all outsiders. Pacifica is another character on the show I really hate, she is so full of herself and extremely spoiled thinks everthing in life will be handed to her.



    I like how there is this parallel contrast between both Pacifica and her friends along with Mabel and her friends. Pacifica thinks that everything has to be all perfect that it has to all be the same to be on top, which is one of the reasons why her friends feel like extensions of her persona; and that anyone below her hierachy or is different in anyway deserves nothing. Mabel doesn't believe everything is perfect and what is different isn't bad . Her friends have diverse personas and feelings, their not concerned about popularity. And like her all of them have desires and they have enough guts and actually work on making them come true.



    It was sad that Mabel and her friends didn't win the contest, they did in reality you can clearly tell Pasifica cheat by bribing or even threating most people in the party, plus her singing sucks. But it didn't get Mabel and her friends down because they didn't need popularity to be happy just each other. Also it wasn't a total loss because they had the party to themselves in the end.



    Dipper learns the only thing stopping him from making his dream come true is himself, in the end it really is all up to us to make things happen. And the ending is satisfying as he gets the courage to as Wendy to dance with him in a party that already ended, but for Mabel, her friends, the D.J. (forgot his name), Wendy, and most importantly Dipper it has just begun.
