Listen, I don't ask a lot from life—I just want to live with someone cool. Someone, you know, like a cartoon...
Brock Sampson, Venture Bros.
As Dr. Venture discovered, the best part about having Brock Samson as a roommate is that he would kill everyone who comes to the door, so SO LONG FOREVER Jehovah's Witnesses!
The worst part about having Brock Samson as a roommate is that he would kill everyone who comes to the door, so SO LONG FOREVER Mom!
The rad thing about Bender as a roommate is that, because he's a robot, he WANTED to give Fry the bigger room. He's not going to agree to taking the smaller room and hold a secret grudge against you for the entirety of your lease, like every real-life roommate who has ever gotten the smaller room throughout history has done.
That's right, I'm looking at you Phil. You're a real passive agressive d-bag, you know that Phil?
Frylock, Aqua Teen Hunger Force
Frylock is smart and fair-minded, which are basically te only qualities any of us are ever looking for in a roommate. He is also salty and delicious, which is all any of us are looking for in french fries. So, I guess if you want to EAT your roommate, Frylock's the only real choice.
Ren, Ren and Stimpy
I know, I know. Ren seems really high-strung and quick to anger, which would be hard qualities to live with. But at least with Ren you know what you're getting — I'll take an agressive roommate over a passive-agressive roommate anyday. Again I must reiterate that you are a monster Phil and I regret signing this lease with you and I hope you are dead soon.
Butt-head, Beavis and Butt-head
Don't pretend you want some stupid roommate who wants to DO things with you and have CONVERSATIONS about politics or whatever. You want someone who's going to plunk himself in front of the TV and watch music videos, leaving you alone to drink wine and try REAL hard to write a novel or some other such flight of fancy that's never going to lead anywhere you goddamn FAILURE... (editor note: Did they live together, or did they just basically live together? Whatever, I'm leaving it.)
I'm sorry Phil. Let's try again to write a screenplay together.
