    The very title of the episode gives it away being Quip's catch phrase. I really didn't care for the episode Quips very much, almost worse than some of the MM episodes. Theories?

    • Yeah, I wasn't a fan of the episode either, and I have no idea what to make of this title. Actually I'd completely forgotten about Quips's catch phrase until you guys mentioned it in the forums. If he does show up, then maybe it's a Skips episode? That would be a first for a season's finale. Not sure about the "Bachelor! Party!" part. Like a bachelor party? Maybe Quips is getting hitched and the guys get roped in to showing him a good time, kind of like they did for the Cart in Out of Commission. Not sure why Quips though, I mean I'm sure he's a nice guy but out of all the minor characters was there really such a strong demand for a Quips episode? I don't know, I usually suck at predicting this stuff anyway.

    • Yeah, I wasn't a fan of the episode "Quips" either; the jokes got too obnoxious for my tastes. As for this epiosode, the title is very interesting and the plot is not yet known, but it looks likely Quips will be in it. It makes you wonder what this episode would be about. My theory is Quips isn't getting engaged, but rather someone else is and Quips perhaps tells annoying/offensive jokes about the bride and groom at the wedding? Or ruins the couple's proposal in a similar manner? I hope this isn't the plot, since it would pretty much be a rehash of "Quips" only in a different setting but I can definitely see this happening.

      Or the very unlikely chance Quips isn't in this at all, which I'm hoping for. I just hope that if Quips has to be in this episode, then I hope it's written well or has a twist we might not be expecting. Knowing this show, plot twists can happen and the unexpected should be expected. Let's hope this is a good one!

      Also, Gonkh, I believe we have at least two more episodes after this one before the season's over. This is episode 35 of the season and CN ordered 40 episodes for this season, and because "Terror Tales of the Park III", "The Thanksgiving Special" and "Skips' Story" were all half-hour specials, that means we have at most 37 episodes this season. It'll be 36 if they have one more half-hour special, which is highly unlikely in my opinion, but you never know.

      This will be very interesting seeing what the plot will be and the episode in the coming weeks.

      That, would make more sense, thanks for the heads up Rack. =)

      Actually, after reading that I kind of want a wedding in the episode now. Like they could use The Park as the venue, and then you'd have problems coming up during the setup/through the ceremony that needs to be solved. It could potentially be a really good teamwork episode, at least that's what I'm hoping for. Not sure who would be getting married at this point, maybe a random couple that wanted to have their wedding at the Park?

    • I'd like to hope Quips learned from the episode of the same name, so although we'll probably get some of his joking, we can hope it's not too bad? "Quips" is an okay episode for me, but Quips for a lot of the episode was frustrating and annoying. I'm guessing that was the point of the writers, but because of it, it's not a character I feel super pumped to see again. As Rackliffelikespurple said, may this episode have some good characterization for Quips this time around, and may there be good plot twists that make it worthwhile if he doesn't.

      I imagine that this is about a literal bachelor party, though. The idea of park members having to throw a bachelor party for Quips (who is probably the one getting married?) sounds really fun. It could be one of the first times the show's acknowledged marriage. At this point in the show, most of the park staff are in romantic relationships--besides Rigby and Skips, but it might not take them much longer--and you'd think marriage would be touched upon, even if it were just for laughs, more often. Even if it's a character outside of the park getting married, I'm thrilled to see if the show will dive into this subject for the first time.

      And to think we only have two unknown episodes after this! Until then, we have a Skips episode and Thomas episode to get overjoyed about (along with this one) and a Comic Con panel to hear thrilling news from, not to mention we have a brand new season to enjoy after the end of season 5! This season keeps getting better and better, so I can't wait to see where these episodes go!

    • My thoughts exactly, Tansy. :D

    • To be honest, I really didn't mind the episode Quips. While the humor did get old rather quickly, I liked the interaction between some of the characters. Since Gary is one of my favorite minor characters, I thought it was interesting to see him playing games with Mordecai and Rigby. I also thought Reginald (The Guardian of Eternal Youth that was on Gary's team) was pretty funny, though I felt kind of sorry for him when everybody kept assuming that he drew bacon. The flashback with Skips saving Mordecai and Rigby was fascinating as well. I have to wonder if the creators will make a special or something including those three specific adventures. 

      As Tansyflower has stated, though, I believe Quips has already learned his lesson. I don't think he will be near as irritating this time around. Skips told him the truth about how annoying his jokes were, and he seemed to take the hint by the end of the episode. Besides, one would think he would be worn out after using his material on kids all the time. Even if he doesn't have good characterization, hopefully the writers can work around it and still come up with an episode that is worth watching.

      Since 'bachelor party' is in the episode's title, I think it's safe to assume that somebody is getting married. It may very well be Quips himself, since his catchphrase is in the title as well. Perhaps if he is the one getting married, he'll develop more as a character and realize that not everything is meant as a joke. However, maybe somebody else is getting married, and he's the one who has to bring them back together for some reason. That would be interesting....

      It actually kind of surprises me that Regular Show hasn't acknowledged marriage up until this point. As often as the creators throw in romantic elements, this is the first time a wedding is happening. I'm curious to see how well they handle marriage. Will the episode be funny? Will it have sad moments? Will it have a good moral behind it? When it comes to RS, I usually can't predict what's going to happen. I just hope that the creators have some awesome concepts in store for us. 

      As for a teamwork episode, that would be pretty cool. I can easily picture a wedding cake monster attacking the bride and groom, and the park gang has to come to the rescue. (Hey, it could happen) Teamwork in any cartoon, especially RS, usually makes me smile.

    • I just remembered one thing I forgot about "Quips": The ending. Remember how Quips is a clown now? Well another theory I have is rather than just tell jokes, perhaps he's performing as a clown at the weddng? I'd actually like that plot, it sounds interesting.

      That's actually a pretty cool idea. I hadn't even taken the thought of him being a clown into consideration. It's definitely a plot the creators could work well with, if handled properly. Good thinking, Rack! :)

    • My theory is that Quips is getting married and Skips and/or Mordecai and Rigby has to arrange his bachelor party, except no one wants to go, somehow they rope the Park employees into it, and it turns out to be a disaster.

      I agree that it is a little odd to have another Quips episode when we still know very little about HFG, Thomas, and CJ for that matter. It wasn't like the viewer numbers were crazy high for the episode Quips.

      Yeah, I was wondering that myself. Maybe it's because the guy who plays Quips works for the show, and he kept bugging the other storyboarders about guest starring in another episode. I remember hearing in a Comic Con interview that he had supposedly kept pesting everybody about an episode that had Mordecai's hot mom in it, too, and J.G. had to tell him to calm down. I guess it's easier on the RS crew, since they don't have to hire another various actor. Quips is an okay character; I just don't think he's the best. Hopefully the storyboarders know how to handle the situation this time around.

    • Yup, Matt Price, one of the outline writers for the show, does his voice.

      I have faith they'll do better this time around. One thing we can all agree on is this will certainly be quite the interesting episode.

      It's really encouraging to hear staff members get so invested in their show. It'd be easy to treat the whole process like a job, which it is, but to actively get behind characters and advocate for their screen time? They must be having fun with what they're doing. I can always get behind enthusiasm like that. Here's hoping for the best for the episode.

      Nailed it! The plot was all like "You won't figure me out before the show" and Trash Boat was all like "BAM! In yo face" and then Benson was all like "GET BACK TO WORK OR YOU'RE FIRED!"

    • I'm glad I was right about guessing that Quips would get married. It's still the first time marriage has been so important in a RS episode, so it'll be intriguing to watch!

      We've been lucky with episodes on more minor characters, but we've also gotten lucky with a lot of Skips episodes this season! I have no complaints--Skips and his episodes have been really good this season--but it still surprises me! It'll be fun to see him plan a bachelor party!

      It'll definitely be interesting to see Skips plan a bachelor party. Considering that the only love interest he has had so far in the show is Mona, I'm curious to see how well he handles preparing something so important for his cousin. Maybe he'll have all of the other park members help him out, or perhaps even Quips himself will have to lend a hand. I can actually picture Skips telling Mordecai and Rigby: "Out of all the things to be asked to help with, love is the one thing I still don't really understand." 

      I'm happy that Quips is getting married, though. This gives me hope that my lame jokes can still get me somewhere in life. XD I also have to agree with Tansyflower; the Skips episodes this season have been awesome! I look forward to watching this episode in a few weeks. :)

      Lol, that cracked me up. guess those jokes must hit the right marks with someone out there. xD It'd be funny if the bride to be ends up having the same sense of humor as Quips, then he'd be all "What do you have to say about my lame jokes now? =P"

    • A lot of RS fans seem to forget the fact that Quips is supposed to be annoying. The episode wasn't THAT bad, everyone acts like it was a travesty. It wasn't even a bad episode to begin with, sure it wasn't the most interesting episode of RS that revolved around a relative of a character (see: Don). That doesn't mean it was awful like everyone makes it out to be.

      I don't think anyone thinks that episode was terrible, as in it lacked a solid story, just the annoying factor was a bit much, kind of like how people feel about Do Me a Solid. However, without Reginald, that episode would have really been boring.

      I don't think the episode Quips was terrible at all. I just think the comedic factor Quips was trying to provide was a little overdone. While some of the jokes he made were pretty funny, others were very dull and irritating. The episode as a whole was decent, I just didn't overly care for how many puns Quips kept making. This doesn't mean that I didn't enjoy Reginald's character, though, or Pops's Van Halen reference. In terms of creativity, it was a very good episode. However, it probably would have been even better if Quips would have dialed his comedic routine back a little. While Quips isn't my favorite episode, it isn't my least favorite, either.

      Lol ikr. Maybe she has also a catchphrase and saw that spark and humor on Quips and vice versa

      Fair enough, but even if some think Quips' jokes should've been toned down (in terms of annoyance), I think it was the writers' goal to try and make him as obnoxious as possible so that even Rigby or Pops couldn't tolerate him. Unfortunately for some, that part of him might be here to stay.
