Are You There God? It's Me, Dean 10 Past Tense


When Dr. Venture decides to hold a tag sale at the Venture Compound, Brock has to call in reinforcements as every villain around for miles shows up to see what bargains they can find, including The Monarch and Baron Underbheit.


Dr. Venture decides to sell some old crap to make some extra cash. Brock Samson is working security in order to keep things running smoothly since Rusty has tables with "laser death ray bargain bins" and other instruments of destruction laying around like candy during Halloween. A who's who of villains is in attendance, including The Monarch and his entourage of Dr. Girlfriend, 21 and 24. Also in attendance is Baron Ünderbheit, Master Billy Quizboy, Pete White, Dr. Orpheus and even "that guy from Depeche Mode" is there. While The Monarch and Dr. Girlfriend argue about the guy from Depeche Mode's sexual orientation Pete and Billy discuss the possibility of Dr. Girlfriend having a baboon uterus in her.

Dr. Orpheus offers to help Rusty out with the sale, but he slowly becomes jealous of Rusty because he has arch enemies to spare. He starts insulting people randomly, trying to get someone to hate him. Billy and Pete are trying to get Dr. Girlfriend to arch them. Then Phantom Limb runs into her while she's waiting for The Monarch to come out of the port-o-potty. Phantom limb tries to convince her to be her own villain and that he'd be her number 2, but Dr. Girlfriend tells him she's got a "good thing going" and to be a good "whatever the hell" he is and go away. As he's leaving, The Monarch comes out and says it was all just sound and fury and that he needs a real toilet to do his business.

He sees Ünderbheit and shoots a pebble at him using his wrist band. This causes Ünderbheit to retaliate, towards the wrong person, which starts a chain reaction and creates chaos. The Monarch sneaks into Venture's room, but finds that he's less than enthusiastic about being there; he realizes that Rusty is a failure of a scientist. Dr. Girlfriend convinces him to go into Venture's lab and break something.

Meanwhile, Rusty, Hank, Dean, Triana and H.E.L.P.eR. all move to go back inside. Dr. Orpheus and Brock are outside dishing out the hurt, when Brock gets a call from Rusty telling him that someone's in the lab. He sends a team over to investigate which The Monarch quickly dispatches with his darts. With this, The Monarch regains his hatred for Venture and vows to have his vengeance.
