    Even knowing Lou, she's hardly around long enough to be anyone's favorite but....you never know, I suppose. o.o

    She could be someone's least favorite, though. Grrrrrrr, Lou. :mad:

    You said it! And kudos to you, Colgoff!

    I guess I just thought it would be Mokey because I always thought she was a purplish-mauve (but after reading some replies, it definitely makes sense that she would be more of a pinky color) and because some people have confused her gender. I once saw a listing for a Tomy Mokey doll listed as Gobo's "Uncle Traveling Mokey," for instance. :)

    Ha! I would say she is purplish! You were fine!

    Sorry, I have to ask: do you dislike Lou, or were you just joking?

    Uncle Tra---HAHAHAH! WHAT?! Talk about scrambled. Oh that's funny. Engrish strikes again, I suppose.
    Mokey's pink! Or Mauve but of all of them, she is the closest to purple, I guess. Hey, I have to agree with Borples. I'm not a fan of Lou either. o.o I dunno what it is about her but...bleh.
    I think it's that she seems so forced. ~_~

    Sort of both. I dislike her, but not to the point where she makes me actually angry or anything. She's just so smug. She waltzes into Wembley's life and starts making decisions for him--when the whole point of the ep is that it's bad that Wembley's friends make his decisions for him! I mean, for all she knows, he might have had a good reason to have socks draped all over himself. When she asked if he wanted to have socks on his nose, or whatever she asked, he said, "Well, no, but..." and she didn't even let him finish his sentence before interrupting him and taking his socks. I mean, she happened to be right, more or less, but that's not the point. She was just as pushy as the rest of his friends in that episode.

    Okay, since I sort of dislike Lout too, I will get to the point when Boober gets pushed around in the episode "Boober's Quiet Day."

    He was supposed to have a relaxing quiet day and guess who pushes him around? Sidebottom! So, he pushes him to tell his friends what he is doing which turn out to be harmless or sheer lies. Uh-oh! Then, Sidebottom transforms him into an old lady gyspy. Double uh-oh! Well, I felt so sorry for him. He did sort of have fun, though. Great episode! (laughs) Thank you for your comments, bandit.

    Er, I watched that episode this morning, and that isn't the case. She asks him what he wants to do, she asks him if he really wants a rock on his belly or to be a sock rack, and she doesn't answer the questions for him. She waits until he tells her he doesn't want the rock, then takes it off him, and Wembley himself lowers his arms and shakes the socks off. The closest she gets to being pushy is giving Wembley a nudge in the direction of doing what is best for himself, but she never tells him what to do.

    Bah! She's still a hateful wench. *laughs* I still feel like her character is too forced. her personality is strong but aside from that there is really nothing much more to her. She's a plot device. Plus, her voice grates on my nerves.

    I laughed, too--awesome word choices!
    Don't mean to disrespect the conversation here, but I kind of like Lou, even if--and I agree with bandit on this one--she does seem like sort of a plot device. She's empathetic and caring, and she's also not one to beat around the bush--she wants to get straight to the point so she can solve the problem. Don't know if I worded that last part very well, but still, I admire her for that.
    And I love Cheryl Wagner.:flirt:

    Good luck! :) Bye!
    And by the way, sorry for just barging in there with my opinion--I do that way too often.

    Just kidding! (chuckles)!

    BTW: I was quoting in a Mokeish kind of way. (laughs)!

    Hmm! Oh, you mean you like that I am quoting :dreamy:? (chuckles)! You're silly! I didn't know you spoke a second lanuage just now.

    Fraggline, it's a forum! ^_^ There's no barging in on a forum. Everything is out for others to see and weigh in on. That's what it's all about. I'm glad you jumped in!
    Well, I know that there are plenty of people who do like Lou for the reasons you mentioned. I just think it's too convenient to have someone waltz in all Deus Ex Machina-like and supply Wembley with answers. He's had his friends for a long time but it takes a stranger to come in and change his life? I just don't like it.

    Cheryl Wagner is a funny one for me. I recognize she has a good deal of talent but I'm still not crazy about her voice when she is Ma. There ARE other roles (more backgruond ones) that I think I like better, though. At least, I think that's who it is.

    Y'know, actually, yes, yes, I am often silly, especially when I don't mean to be. ;)

    Thanks for reminding me that it's a forum! :3 I guess you're right--it's designed to be a place where you share your opinions. And also, good point about Lou. Poor Wembley! Right now, in fact, I really can't think of anyone that he's met who doesn't make all of his decisions for him--wait, Mudwell--but anyway, you get the idea.

    *laughs* Yeah, I'm really pretty great at pointing out the obvious. Sorry!
    Oh yes, Mudwell. He didn't exploit him but he sure went all kinds of crazy bipolar on him, didn't he? Poor Wembley's heart gets to Wemble in that episode. HAPPY---DEVASTATED. o.o
    At least it ends with ACCEPTING and HOPEFUL.
