- Poor poor Hans, the resident Butt-Monkey. Like Mr. Ribaldi throwing a songbook at his head for example.
Bonnie: You shouldn't be so rude to Hans.Mr. Ribaldi: Perhaps, but this is not the point.
- Bonnie even lampshades it.
Mr. Ribaldi: I'll try to be better with Hans.
- Subverted slightly a moment later:
- Ribaldi laughing at Bonnie the first time he hears her sining.
Mr. Ribaldi: You sing like a goat!
