|Now, some original content... sort of. Let's get this rolling.
So, in what turned out to be the show's last ever new ep, Otto Rocket forfeited a competition, one with a prize of Shaun White, AND one where he had a good chance of winning, to make sure Ray's wedding happened. And this is a kid who obsesses himself with winning, and doesn't take a shine to defeat.
Okay, we know the backstory on this unlikely forfeit, but can you imagine Otto trying to justify himself to someone who had no idea? I can imagine a few people who wouldn't forgive him for this...
Heck, I once wrote a ficlet where Shaun White was initially PO'd at this. Here it is...
Shaun: Otto Rocket, what gives man? One moment you were burning up the compeition and I was expecting to be learning from you, and then you're gone the next and I end up with someone I actually have to teach? Wha??
Otto: Want the long version or short version?
Otto: Well, to sum up, I know I should have won the competition easily, but if I had won I wouldn't be introducing this woman to you. Shaun, meet my new stepmom Noelani. Quit because, well, let's just say I had to make sure she married my dad.
Shaun: (looking at Noelani) Niiice. (back to Otto) Otto, I'd normally say it's not cute to give up on your future, your dreams and your aspirations... but I can understand why you'd quit. Hey, my sister, brother, and mom have had a hand in the success I've enjoyed.
Otto: That, and Reggie was kinda badgering me to quit.
Otto: Shaun, so you really were hoping to learn some moves from me? Cool... Looks like I have to apologize that I didn't get to, right?
Shaun: Well, not if I win in Torino.
Otto: Oh, you made the winter team this time? I was kinda sick to my stomach when you weren't at Salt Lake. I'd like you to bring home the gold, with or without my style. Maybe I can show it to you someday?
Shaun: Sure... Gotta go now! Bye.
Will post the thread it came from later. Meanwhile, go discuss amongst yourselves.
Save Hey Arnold! Or rather, its second movie.
Go here and/or here (preferably, both).
