The story behind the quote: Once again, I have to show thanks to DJ Miller as he managed to find another wonderful quote for the site. We really appreciate the assistance.
This week’s quote comes from the Cartoon Network original cartoon, Regular Show. The cartoon generally revolves around two best friends, a blue jay named Mordecai and a raccoon named Rigby. Both of them work as groundskeepers for a local park and they, along with their friends, go on various misadventures.
The quote comes from the final episode of the seventh season, Rigby’s Graduation Day Special. Rigby, finally graduating from high school, is tasked to give a speech on the day that will be broadcast all over the world. This does make Rigby nervous as he doesn’t know what to say. After Mordecai admits he always felt good about himself as he was always better than Rigby and he was jealous his friend was doing something that makes him better, Rigby hits an epiphany and realizes what his speech is going to be about. Rigby says it’s easy to not study and not graduate from school and he basically only did it to impress a girl. He then states all the things he had to accomplish to graduate. This is when he delivers the quote.
Geek wisdom: A real father isn’t just there for the conception. A real father is there for there kids, no matter what. It takes a real man to step up and actually care for a child.
We’ve all had to go through hard times and struggles. Once we get through them, however, things do become easier as all the hardship is past us. As long as we have people we love and care about with us, anything is possible.
