Arthur: Remember that time my sister gave me that V neck sweater vest for my birthday and we tried to return it to the store and they'd only give me credit and I was so upset and then at lunch they put onions on my cheeseburger after I expressly asked the waitress not to. Do you remember that day, Tick?

[Tick's self-image gives a thumbs up]
The Tick's Mind: Oh great. That's your big question? That's your big truth? You goober!
The Tick: Look, thumbs up! We're doing fine!
