"Your blankets were too small? How big do you need these curtains to be, lass?" he asked, glancing back over his shoulder and quirking a brow at her while he crossed the living room and walked over to the closet. Opening the door he hovered up to the top shelves and began rummaging through the neatly folded fabrics in search of the largest curtains he could find. "Because if you need ‘em to be a very specific size, then we may have no other choice but to go visit the haberdasher…"
Wow, Gus sure likes his random-spawning mortarboard and chalkboard. Here’s a compendium of all those awesome moments. Enjoy!
(Plus, I’m thinking of making a GIF set for each important character (Mickey, Oswald, Gus, Prescott, Ortensia, Ian, Mad Doctor, Blot (those are the only ones I can think of right now, any more?) in the series, of about 5 GIFs each, of their best moments.

"I’m so proud to hear you say that, Clem! But are you sure you won’t be needin’ any help? You know, there’s no shame in askin’ for assistance, especially when workin’ on a complicated project.

"I… you want me to… right now?” His cheeks grew warm, and he fixed his eyes on the floor. “Well, I… I certainly wouldn’t mind kissin’ her, anon. B-but she’s currently all the way at the North Pole. It’d make kissin’ her kind of… well, impossible at the moment…”
