Treat Yo Self!

I love Season 4, Episode 4 where Donna and Tom introduce Ben (and the rest of us) to their “Treat Yo Self” day.

I’m not sure that there’s an awesome quote, but here are two dialogues that this spell out the premise and my favorite part. 

 

Tom: Once a year Donna and I spend a day treating ourselves. What do we treat ourselves to?

Donna: Clothes.

Tom: Treat Yo Self!

Donna: Fragrances.

Tom: Treat Yo Self!

Donna: Massages.

Tom: Treat Yo Self!

Donna: Mimosas.

Tom: Treat Yo Self!

Donna: Fine. Leather. Goods.

Tom: Treat Yo Self!

Donna: It's the best day of the year.

Tom & Donna[singing] The Best Day Of The Year!

...Later at the mall....

Tom: Man, did you buy anything for yourself today?

Ben: Yeah, I got this pack of socks.

Tom: Plain white socks? That's not a treat! Donna! Get me away from him.

Donna: Look. Maybe this is our version of treat yourself day and he needs to do his version.

Tom: What are you talking about?

Donna: Wyatt, if you could blow big money on one thing-- not sock money-- what would it be?

Tom: Oh, my God! Oh, my God! Oh, my God! This is a whole new level of nerd.

Ben: You're right. This is ridiculous. What am I doing? Wait.

Tom: No, no, no, no. I mean that in a good way, Ben. Listen to me, you're part of the treat yourself team now, okay? If that costume somehow makes you happy, you're gonna buy it. And you're gonna wear it out of the store, okay? You're gonna treat yourself.

Ben: Yeah, you know what? I'm gonna do that.I'm gonna-- I'm gonna treat myself.

Thanks, you guys.[Crying] Thank you. I really needed this.[Sobbing] I'm gonna treat myself.

Donna: Uh-oh.Batman's crying.
