Here it is… Arguably the finest moment in television history.
The set up:
After seeing piles of fanmail for Stimpy and none for him, Ren gets very sad, but Stimpy decides to make Ren president of his fan club. A position that drives him mad…
Ren: I… I was nice today. NICE to all of those insipid little monkeys, answering thier STUPID letters. My hands… DIRTY!
(Scrapes his hands.)THE DIRT WON’T COME OFF!
Ren: President! What a joke. President! President of what? HIS fan club! How they love him! Look at him, lying there asleep. The idol of millions… (whipering)is a FOOL!
Ren(sing-song) Lying silly little fool.
Ren: How easily I end the force… with these hands! These DIRTY HANDS! AND WITH THESE HANDS I HOLD THE FATE OF MILLIONS! They think he’s a god, but he’s as mortal as we. I KNOW! Just one quick TWIST… then it’s over. Just one!
(moving toward Stimpy)
Ren: Just… AAAAH! IT’S HAPPENING AGAIN! MY BRAIN! MY HOT, STINGING BRAIN!
