Minor RolesEdit


Lupe: ¡Oye! Corey Vulture, are you even listening to me? What kind of boyfriend are you to pay me no never mind! You think I can't do better than your sorry tail feathers?
(Corey chews his jerky, while completely ignoring Lupe)
Lupe: I said, are you even listening to me!?
Corey: What?
Lupe: That's it! You'd better make your choice, boyfriend! Either me, or that dang rotten bag of meat you love so much!
(Corey looks back and forth at Lupe and his jerky, making a decision)
(In the very next shot, Lupe is seen crying loudly)

Orlando: Pretty bird!
Jake: Pretty monkey!
Adam: Pretty stupid.

(Orlando comments on his owl reflection)
Orlando: Pretty bird! Pretty bird!
(Lupe assumes Orlando is talking about her)
Lupe: You ... you think so?
Orlando: Pretty bird! Pretty bird!
Lupe: Adam, who's your highly intelligent friend?
(Adam looks at Jake)
Adam: Um, is that a trick question?

Lupe: Ah, yes. It's so nice to be in love again. It has been such a long and painful journey, but now that I have found you, I--
(Orlando sees reflection in spoon)
Orlando: Pretty bird! Pretty Bird!
Lupe: Are you hungry, Mi Amore? Claro, of course I will feed you.
(Lupe takes Orlando's spoon and hands him a spoonful of worms)
Orlando: Pretty Bird! Pretty Bird!

Jake: No freebies sister! You want advice, sign up for the ...
(A giant cruise ship spontaneously appears in the aquatic hallway)

(Lupe drops to the ground)
Adam: Lupe, are you okay?
Lupe: Yes, yes I am not.

Henry: Well, shoot. Maybe Adam Lyon ain't such a great matchmaker after all.
James: You said it, mister. Good thing Adam offered us all a monkey back guarantee. Refund!
(All the customers chant in protest for a refund)
Customers: Refund! Refund! Refund! Refund!
Jake: Adam ... you offered them WHAT!?

Lupe: What kind of bird steals someone else's ... BIRD!?

Lupe: So, he's no seeing another bird?
Adam: Nope.
Lupe: So then, he doesn't think I'm pretty?
Adam: I ... I guess not. You know, Lupe, it's probably for the best. I mean, to be honest, Orlando doesn't seem all that bright and-
(Lupe becomes infuriated, catching fire and growing bloodshot eyes)

Headless Ingrid

Headless Ingrid

  • Animation Goof: In one scene, Jake tells Adam that he could make money off of his "match making services". The camera then zooms out, and Jake pulls down a flashing heart shapes sign from the ceiling. For a brief second, after the camera zooms out and the before the sign drops down, Ingrid Giraffe is seen without a head. This is due to the creators choosing to never show the entirety of Ingrid's body, so they never bothered designing a character model of her from head to toe. They usually have a model of her from the neck down, and have the top of her neck, cut off screen or hidden behind a tree, to give off the illusion that Ingrid is fully there, but her height prevents her from being fully shown. However, they made a mistake and showed a bit of a shocking image of a headless giraffe, that can clearly be seen in a frame or two, if paused at exactly the right moment.
