Some nice chemical peeled Superman look.jpg

Dennis: Do I look foolish?
Dee: Well, what in God's name have you done to your face?!
Dennis: I got a chemical peel.
Mac: You look like a MONSTER, dude...
Dennis: I was just trying to live up to all of your expectations of me.
Dee: What expectations?
Dennis: Physical perfection. (?)
Dee: What?!
Dennis: Clearly, the success of the bar has proved that I have achieved physical perfection. And now there's nowhere else for me to go but
DOWN from here, so now I'm hanging on by a thread!..
Dee: Why don't you... lay off the skin... treatments for a while?
Mac: Yeah, yeah...
Dennis: Oh... You're don't think I should mess with my face anymore?
Mac: Well, right now it looks like you're wearing a MASK of yourself over your face.
Dee: Mm-hmm...
Dennis: Not a good one, not a nice mask of myself?
Mac: Not a good one.
Dennis: Do you guys think that a normal mask of me might look good?
Dee: Oh, my God...
Dennis: And if there was, would you guys wear it?
Mac: What is happening here?!
Dee: I'm VERY confused...
Dennis: I'm going to be alone!.. (judgemental gaze)
