I Love Skippy from Family Ties
I Love Skippy, But Skippy Loves Mallory...
Look at him. He's adorable...the smile, the dimples. And, to top it off, he is the sweetest guy you've ever met. I would marry Skippy in a split second, but that little hussy, Mallory, would rather Nick.
Nick?!?!?! Dumb as a rock Nick?!?!
Skippy is madly in love with her, and she dismisses the very thought of him...for Nick?!?!?!
Mallory is out of her mind, however small it is.
Call me, Skippy. We'll get married, have geeky little babies. It's all good.
Join the Skippy VS. Nick Debate
For me, hands down I'm on the Skippy side, but where do YOU lie on the Skippy vs. Nick debate?
Shot down by Mallory (once again)
From the episode "Fool For Love" written by Marc Lawrence
Skippy: Mallory, wait a minute. I'd like to ask you something.
Skippy: Will you go with me to the homecoming dance next week?
Mallory: No, I will not go with you to the homecoming dance next week.
Skippy: Thanks for getting back to me so fast.
This is what she preferred. Even though she had a great guy like Skippy that would do anything for her...who loved her unconditionally....who continued to love her even after being shot down so rudely so many times. This is what she picked. Nick. More stupid than one could imagine, yet Nick was who Mallory chose.
What is it about bad boys? I would so much rather a good guy. A nice guy...dependable and loving, not exciting and dangerous. In his heart, I think Nick was a good person...but he was no Skippy.
Skippy: The Fallback Guy
From Let's Go Our Separate Ways (Part 2) Written by Michael Zabawa
Mallory: Skippy, what are you doing here?
Skippy: Alex told me you were breaking up with Nick.
Mallory: He did?
Mallory: Well. I did break up with him.
Skippy: Why were you running out though?
Mallory: I found a girl in Nick's bathroom.
[Nick runs out into the hallway]
Nick: Mallory, I can explain!
Mallory: Nick, I really don't need or want your explanation.
Nick: What does that mean?
Mallory: It means you're dumped. Skippy, take me home.
Skippy: Are you sure? Didn't you drive here yourself?
[Mallory grabs Skippy and starts kissing him.]
Nick: Mal, what are you doing?
Mallory: Kissing the person that's always been there for me, no matter what.
Frankly at this point, she doesn't deserve him.
