036 Butters on Bullying

Grandma? I did it, Grandma. [she opens her eyes] I finally stood up for myself. I got real mean and I beat the shnozz our of Dr. Oz. [she frowns] I can’t lie, it felt kind of good. [she smiles] At first. But since then all I have is just… a kind of dark, empty feeling. Then I realized… that’s how you must feel. All the time. [her smile fades] Poor old Grandma. You know, I’ve I’ve been gettin’ lots of advice how to deal with you. Stand up to you, tell on you… But I kind of realize there’s just people like you out there. All over the place. When you’re a kid, things seem like they’re gonna last forever. But they’re not. Life changes. Why you won’t always be around. Someday you’re gonna die. [the anger leaves Grammy’s face] Someday pretty soon. [he approaches Grammy] And when you’re layin’ in that hospital bed, with tubes up your nose, and that little pan under your butt to pee in, well I’ll come visit ya. I’ll come just to show you that, that I’m still alive and I’m still happy. And you’ll die. Bein’ nothin’ but you. [walks back to the door] ‘Night Grandma. [exits and closes the door]
