    • Ren: We enjoyed many a holiday together. Long lost wasteful days lazily putting things into him and waiting for them to explode.

    • (Ren is about to give the frog the final blow with a hammer)

      Ren: Wait a minute...you want me to kill you?

      Frog: It'll end the pain! HAVEN'T I SUFFERED ENOUGH?!
      Ren: No.
      (Ren walks away with another kid with a cigarette.)
      Ren: Hey, Skippy! Gimme that drag on that thing! (smokes cigarette) Hey, did you see Susie in that little plaid skirt in school today? OOOOhhh.
      (scene cuts back to Ren lying on the couch)
      Ren: ...and so I decided not to finish him off, for longing his sufferings seemed so much sweeter to me. So much.
      Mr. Horse: And, uh, how did you sleep that night?

      (Mr. Horse scoots back on his chair towards the right side of his desk, opens the drawer and pulls out a gun leaving it aside.)

    • Ren's Dad: Son, did you mangle this poor frog?
      Ren: (shakes his head) No.

      Ren: (looks at his dad with a depressing grimace) Yes.

      (Ren's Mom looks at the frog, and the frog smiles and waves hello to her. Ren's Mom vomits twice on the house cat from the dismantled hand of the frog.)
      Ren's Dad: Son, mangling that frog was wrong, but the deed is done now, and there's only one thing left for you to do: You have to finish him off! It's the humane way. (hands Ren a gun from his Bible) Here. Use my gun.
      (Ren picks the gun up and points it at the frog. Ren's Mom swipes it off his hands.)

      Ren: Crazy?
      Dr. Mr. Horse: That's right! You need to be locked up...away from decent, normal people! What kind of a lunatic are you?! You just walk up to strangers on the street and tell him, "Hey, mister! You wanna hear some sick stories about my twisted youth?!"
      Ren: (angry) But...I don't understand! I came to you for help! I beared my soul to you! I told you all my darkest secrets! And now you're telling me I'm crazy? WHAT KIND OF A PSYCHOLOGIST ARE YOU?
      Dr. Mr. Horse: Psychologist? Are you nuts?! I'm a horse! You crazy son of a bitch! I'm gonna beat the living hell out of you!

  • NOTES (6)

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • The ear on the frog's back refers to a research project in the laboratory of the University of Massachusetts. An ear was grown on the back of a mouse.

    • Closing Card: The closing card showing Ren, Mr. Horse, and the frog inside of a multicolored loop very closely resembles the closing card of most of the classic Looney Tunes episodes. It even says "That's It Folks!", a play on the famous line, "That's All Folks!"

    • Mr. Horse: "You're F***ING CRAZY! That's what's wrong with you!"
      The line came from an episode of John K.'s other series, "The Ripping Friends."

    • none: none
      When Ren goes psycho and attacks the two dogcatchers, he looks eerily like Boo-Boo and Cindy Bear did in John K.'s infamous "Boo-Boo Goes Wild" short--especially the copious slaver and the black-rimmed lips.

    • :: :
      The frog that Ren tortures resembles the frog in an old Looney Tunes cartoon in which a man discovers a singing frog, but the frog refuses to sing in front of anyone other than him.
