"The Nice Guy" is the seventeenth episode of Wander Over Yonder. It aired on June 10, 2014.

Synopsis

While stopping to refill their orbble juice, Wander decides to get Sylvia a Thunder Blazz soda to her request. However, his constant politeness and urge to help others end up playing right into his visit, constantly stopping him from fulfilling so.

Plot

On a rather hot planet, Wander and Sylvia tiredly walk up to an orbble pump but once they activate it, it works at a slow pace. While waiting, Sylvia asks Wander to get her a Thunder Blazz drink from the convenience store Blarpee's, and Wander happily agrees.

When Wander approaches the store, he notices someone already taking every Thunder Blazz on its stand, except for one. Before he enters, he holds the door open for another man with a long, centipede like body, since it "never hurts to help" according to him. But the man takes the last Thunder Blazz, leaving Wander disappointed, still holding the door open.

Wander goes over to the stand and decides to get Sylvia a similar drink that's "fizzy, refreshing and totally blorped" like the Thunder Blazz. However, all he finds are drinks with different descriptions but are nothing like it, so he goes to the cashier for help. After helping an old lady cross over a lumpy mat and leave, Wander explains his situation to the cashier and asks him where he can find a drink similar to Thunder Blazz. The cashier boredly suggests the fountain drinks, and Wander happily runs off.

At the drink dispenser, Wander sees the three flavors that make up a Thunder Blazz-esque drink and works away dispensing one by one. When he finishes, he has made a drink reminiscent of Thunder Blazz. Before going back to the cashier though, he had to face a very long line. After reaching the counter, the cashier says the drink costs $1.99 and Wander gives him all the money he has to spend -- all in pennies. But since he's a penny short, he can't pay, The cashier suggests Wander should take a penny from the tray. He refuses since he thinks someone else might need one to buy something, though everything Wander suggests, as the cashier points out, they don't sell those things. 

Instead, Wander searches the store for a spare penny. The first two he finds are from two customers who dropped them, while the third one wasn't. After facing a second long line, Wander is ready to pay, but upon seeing a can which money goes inside to donate to the poor, he ends up putting the penny in that, as well as his other money. The cashier then leaves to go on break.

Wander sadly waits for the cashier to return, but soon he encounters a cyclops who is in a hurry to purchase certain items and thinks Wander is the cashier. Wander agrees to help, and after scanning up the items, the cyclops asks him to keep the two dollars in change. Wander admires this, just as the cashier arrives back.

Yet Wander has to wait in another long line, and he even forgets to bring the drink to the counter as well at one point. After getting the cup, he thinks there's gonna be another long line, but since there isn't any, he happily heads for the counter. Right when he reaches the cashier though, he suddenly trips over the lumpy mat, causing the entire Thunder Blazz-esque drink to spill all over the floor.

Wander has to clean up the mess, and he works around the store mopping up. When he gets to the Thunder Blazz stand, he finds a spare bottle of Thunder Blazz behind it and tosses it. Upon realizing it, he takes it to the counter and begins to pay it with the two dollars he earned earlier. He soon sees a little girl enter the shop and notice the empty stand, and is sad about it. Wander angrily pays for the drink and exits the store, and decides to give the Thunder Blazz to the girl.

Wander reaches to sweaty Sylvia and begins to tell her that he has failed her, but soon the little girl comes by and gives her the Thunder Blazz that Wander gave her. Sylvia happily drinks up the Thunder Blazz, but they still have five hours left on the orbble pump. To pass the time, Wander decides to nail down the lumpy mat. The episode ends as he runs back into Blarpee's.

Goofs

  • When the centipede man gets the last Thunder Blazz, the bottle is much larger than usual.
  • The Thunder Blazz and its handmade drink cost $1.99, but when the centipede pays for it he uses two pennies. However, he could have used two $1 coins to pay.
  • The cash register doesn't display the dollar sign when Wander pays for the things the cyclops needs.
  • When Wander gives the cashier his two dollars to pay for the Thunder Blazz, he would've gotten one penny back because paying more than the actual price will return back some extra change. However, because he was in a hurry to leave, he could not have taken his penny in change.
  • During the scene where Wander makes a Thunder Blazz from the drink machine when he first uses the raspberry spout the drink is purple. However, during the from machine perspective of Wander despising the drinks, the raspberry liquid is pink. Also, the fruit punch is purple, when it should be a shade of red.
  • While the cashier is reading a comic as Wander makes a Thunder Blazz, the front of the comic is purple while the back is green. However, when the camera zooms out as the cashier glares over at Wander, the sides switch colors.
  • When Wander is jumping to catch the Thunder Blazz after unknowingly tossing it, the bottle is behind his hand when he catches it.
  • The drinks that are "Refreshing, but not fizzy, and only somewhat blorped" and "Totally blorped, and fuzzy and refracting" have their additional descriptions in parentheses, but the drink that's "Fizzy, but not refreshing or totally blorped" has the word "But" in big letters, not in the parentheses along with the rest of its description.
  • When Wander stops dispensing the juice for his handmade Thunder Blazz to talk to the cashier, it's filled with a bit of raspberry. However, when he turns to make the drink, the cup is entirely empty.
  • Wander took the "Flatulent, refruzzled, and terminally blarped", "Fraudulent, reflarzled, and eternally blorked" and "Frembulous, regargled, and essentially zonked" drinks out of nowhere; there is only "Fizzy, but not refreshing or totally blorped", "Refreshing, but not fizzy, and only somewhat blorped", "Totally blorped, and fuzzy and refracting" and "Mid-grade industrial rocket fuel supplement."
  • When Wander pulls out a leftover bottle of Thunder Blazz from behind the stand, he is next to the stand. When the camera zooms in on him, he changes position, as a bathroom can be seen to his left.
  • The lump in the mat changes position multiple times in the episode.
  • When Wander accidentally trips over the mat causing his handmade Thunder Blazz to fly out, the cup flies over and downward. In the next shot when it hits the floor, it lands on its right side.
  • The first time Wander uses the drink machine, the drink dispenses when he puts it under the spout. However, when he makes the Thunder Blazz, he has to press the buttons above the spouts to dispense them.
  • The bottles for the Thunder Blazz and other drinks look like plastic ones, but when Wander picks them up they make sounds as if they're glass.
  • The purple gel-e is first shown to cost $5.99, but when Wander scans it, it only costs $2.50.

Trivia

  • The title refers to Wander helping the other customers, being nice to them while doing so.
  • Before Wander rushes toward the counter after forgetting the Thunder Blazz-esque drink, he says there's gonna be another line and something else that prevents him from fulfilling Sylvia's request. This is half correct: even though there is not another line, he trips over the lumpy mat, causing the drink to spill, which is something that prevents him from fulfilling the request.
  • The three drinks Wander can't decide from and the three flavors from the drink machine start with the three adjectives to describe the Thunder Blazz: Fizzy, Refreshing, and Totally Blorped.
  • This episode was originally known as "Unnamed Soda Episode".
    • Also, this episode was also originally known as "Unnamed Convenience Store Episode".
