** To elaborate, Zim became hopelessly depressed when he found out the truth about his "mission". However the very next scene, Dib enlists Zim to unveil him at Professor Membrane's premiere of his new hi-tech bracelet.

Richard Horvitz's delivery of Zim's lines as he explains to Dib what's ''really'' gonna happen with the bracelets is probably the most chillingly menacing Zim's ever been.
