Payment Problem is the 18th episode of Curiousgorge66's Adventures.
- Water Paw
Gorge receives a bill and has to pay $200.
Gorge: (on the phone) Uh-huh. Okay, Sophie! Bye! (hangs up)
(the mailman arrives)
(Gorge sees the mailman)
(Gorge takes the mail)
Mailman: See you tomorrow!
(the mailman continues delivering mail)
Gorge: What's this?
(opens a random-looking letter)
Gorge: A bill?
(Gorge unfolds it)
Gorge: $200 dollars? That's not a lot for me. It's a cable bill, actually.
Timmy: Wait, a CABLE bill? Do they even have those anymore?
Gorge: Yes, they do.
Timmy: Well, cable bills are currently merged with the internet bills.
(Gorge digs in his pocket for $200)
Gorge: $180... $190... Only $196?
Timmy: Yeah... I'm broke.
Gorge: How are we going to make four more dollars? The money's due in 8 days!
Timmy: We could ask Sophie.
(Timmy gets hit with a frying pan)
Gorge: Good idea... if I didn't have to pay long-distance calls!
Timmy: Okay then...
(at Robo's house)
Robo: Sorry, Gorge, but I can't pay you. I'm broke.
Timmy: How do we make some money?
Robo: Ask Sophie, I guess?
Gorge: Why does everyone keep saying that suggestion?
Robo: Then open up a lemonade stand or something.
Gorge: I'm not that experienced with making lemonade.
(Cut to Timmy operating a lemonade stand with a pitcher)
Timmy: Lemonade! Ice-cold lemonade! Only 50 cents!
Gorge: Timmy... how is this going to make four dollars?
Timmy: We sell 8 glasses.
(Cut to Timmy's lemonade stand, full of empty pitchers and lots of cash)
Gorge: That's too much.
Timmy: At least it's enough for a television.
Gorge: We already have a TV...
Timmy: Then I'll get a Coke machine!
Gorge: Fine... How much do they cost, anyhow?
(Cut to Timmy spending all the money made at the lemonade stand)
Timmy: Thank you!
(Timmy exits the store)
Gorge: We need to make some cash!
(At Gorge's house)
Timmy: I just need to plug it up!
(Timmy plugs it up)
Gorge: Wait! (gets out cans of Coke, Pibb & Sprite)
Gorge: I've been waiting to sell these since I got them a month ago.
(Cut to Gorge filling up the Coke machine)
Gorge: Let's see how many people would like a Coke, Pibb or Sprite!
(cut to hundreds of people buying Coke, Pibb & Sprite)
(Two minutes later)
Gorge: Well, they're gone and... that's STILL too much money!
Timmy: How much did a soda cost?
Gorge: 50 cents a can.
Timmy: And how many people were here?
Timmy: That's enough to pay the cable bill... for the next 7 months.
(Cut to Timmy putting the cash in a safe)
Gorge: What do I do now?
Timmy: You can call...
Gorge: If only if I had enough cash...
(Water Paw appears)
Water Paw: Gorge... I just heard you were short on cash for a cable bill... and here's an extra $4!
(Timmy opens his safe and hands Gorge $4)
Gorge: And I'll pay you back with this!
(Gorge hands Water Paw $4)
Water Paw: Thanks!
(Water Paw leaves)
Timmy: Now that we have enough cash...
Gorge: I can pay my cable bill!
(Gorge heads to the local Charter building and pays his cable bill)
(Cut to Gorge watching TV)
Gorge: I paid it... for the next month!
Timmy: At least we have enough cash to pay it for many months.
Gorge: If I don't call Sophie...
- First time Sophie the Otter is mentioned in the series.
- Gorge's random letter was a cable bill.
- This references the Dexter's Laboratory episode "Dexter's Debt" since Gorge is surprised about the bill and it's amount (Gorge is surprised for a different reason).
- Gorge gets out cans of Coke, Pibb & Sprite. There are eight crates of soda since hundreds of people bought soda from Gorge.
- A videogame of the same name is currently in development.
