Gumball: Alright buddy, let's make a list of possible dates.
Darwin: What's a date?
Bobert: [rises] Date, D-A-T-E, social activity undertaken by two people in suitability for a relationship. [lowers, then rises again and tells Darwin about another meaning of "date"] It is also a fruit that makes you poop.
Gumball: Yeah... Thanks??
Darwin: Hey! What about Penny?
Gumball: Penny? Oh, no, no, no, I just like her as a friend... [His pupils are shaped like hearts]
Darwin: Why are your eyes shaped like hearts?
Darwin: Oh. Well, what about Carrie?
[Scene changes to Carrie eating a sandwich]
Gumball: Carrie... She's got spirit... [A piece of sandwich falls off Carrie's body onto the floor of the cafeteria, Carrie is shocked] I'll put her in the "maybes". Next... [Scene changes to Teri laughing] Teri... Nicely drawn features... [Teri turns her face to the right] But a little flat. I'll put her in the "possibles". [Scene changes to Carmen reading a science book] Carmen... Prickly, but smart. Interesting. [Scene changes to Sussie chewing with her mouth open with the girls watching her] Ugh, Sussie... No.
[A paper plane appears and lands in the jelly]
Darwin: What's that?
Gumball: [opens the paper plane and there's a question written on it] "Would you be the jelly in my peanut butter sandwich?" [imagines two slices of bread with peanut butter but without jelly]
Imaginary Bread: What do you say, Gumball?
Gumball: Nah. No, thanks. I already ate. [crumples and throws away the paper plane] Alright buddy, it's date-time!
Richard: Oh cheer up, Gumball. When I was your age, I needed a girl for a party and what I said to her was- [stuffs a lump of food into his mouth, then mumbles before swallowing the food] And 20 years later, we're still married.
Gumball: Aww, dad, you make it sound so easy...
Anais: Are you sure you asked every girl in class?
Darwin: You can ask Penny.
Gumball: Penny? She's too hot. No, not hot, not hot... My type, not my type. [worried smile]
[Scene cuts to a painting of Penny in Gumball's plate]
Anais: Well, if it's not Penny, there's still one girl you haven't asked.
Gumball: Really? Who?
Anais: [stares at Gumball]
Gumball: [realises] Oh! Her-
Anais: [gives Gumball the phone]
Gumball: [on the phone] Hi, this is Gumball Watterson calling, would you be my date to the party? Uh no, you weren't exactly the first girl I asked but... NO, NO, no, no, no, no, don't hang up! [whispers] Please, I can beg. [kneels down] Yes, I'm on my knees. HEY, I'm not saying that! NO, NO, no, no, no, no, please don't hang up! [sighs] Fine, I, Gumball Watterson, have a stupid face... [Darwin peeks] Stuck on a big stupid head... [Anais peeks] With a tiny stupid brain... [Nicole peeks] And stupid is my favorite color. [Richard peeks]
[Darwin, Anais, Nicole and Richard laugh softly]
Gumball: [gasp] You will? Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you so much! I'll pick you up at eight. [hangs up the phone and looks behind him]
[Darwin, Anais, Nicole and Richard run back into their seat,while Darwin pretty much FAILS for a split second then flips back up to his seat.]
[Scene changes back to the party, with everyone down. Teri is asleep on the floor with text drawing on her, Juke is sleeping in a corner, Sussie is still eating, and Idaho and Banana Joe are dancing slowly with parts of their skin peeled off]
Idaho: Haha! I'm doing the mashed potato!
Leslie: [lies facing down on the ground, then raises his head, revealing his wrinkled face] Ahh... Thirsty!
[Penny and Hector are dancing together. Gumball and Tina are also dancing unenthusiastically]
Penny: Hey, how's your date?
Gumball: [sarcastically] Grrreat. How's yours?
Penny: Hector's not really my type... Gumball? Do you remember that paper plane?
Gumball: Umm, oh yeah! "Will you be the jelly in my peanut butter sandwich?" I wasn't really hungry.
Penny: No, silly! I was the peanut butter.
Gumball: What?! Oh, I was supposed to be the jelly, wasn't I?
