Today is Bring Your Child to Work Day and Nicole, against better judgement, takes Gumball to her workplace, the Rainbow Factory. Nicole is still a bit reluctant.
Nicole: Ok, Gumball, are you ready to go and watch me work?
Gumball: -excited- You bet, mom! I can't wait!
Darwin: -from the kitchen- Mom, why can't I go?
Nicole: Sorry, Darwin! They don't allow pets! And legally, you ARE a pet.
Darwin: -dissapointed- Aww...
-Darwin walks to the fridge and takes out some fish flakes to eat-
Darwin: I'll just eat. That always helps.
-Nicole gets the car ready-
Nicole: Gumball, no reckless behavior. Ok?
Gumball: Come on, mom! You can totally trust me! I'll just relax in the back.
-Gumball assumes a relaxing pose and accidentally sits on Nicole's freshly ironed work suit-
Gumball: Oops. Heheh, sorry.
Nicole: -sigh- This is going to be a train wreck.
-Nicole's car disappears down the road-
Gumball: Mom, are we there yet?
Nicole: -sigh- Not yet, sweetheart.
Gumball: Are we there now?
Nicole: Gumball, it's been one and a half minutes. Can't you wait?
Gumball: Well, how long is the ride to your workplace?
Nicole: 15 to 18 minutes.
Gumball: What?! Aw, come on!
-Four minutes pass-
Gumball: I'm SO BORED! It's been 20 minutes, why are we not there yet?!
Nicole: It's been four minutes, Gumball.
Gumball: Gah! At least turn on the radio or something!
-Nicole turns on the radio, while the Delmore channel is on-
Radio: BreakIng news! Local citizen Emily Cartridge, 12 years of age, has had her jail penalty raised to 24 years. Now for some smooth jazz.
-Jazz music plays from the radio-
Gumball: Emily. How scary.
Nicole: It's been three months! Haven't you recovered?
Gumball: I'm sorry, but it's pretty hard to forget that the new girl at school you loved kidnapped you and your friend and tortured you.
Nicole: Sorry, Gumball. I won't talk at all for the rest of the ride, promise.
Nicole drives the car to the Rainbow Factory, never uttering a word.
