The last ten seconds of this clip are what sell it for me.
Uncle Stan is like a Conan-era Simpsons character.

Pacifica is a great character foil.

The platonic ideal of a childish revenge fantasy.
I don't watch Gravity Falls. Could someone explain to me why that frumpy Apple Bloom character is bullying the cool Diamond Tiara character?

Pacifica is rich and stuck up and always felt the need to show Mabel up, in spite of her always beaming optimism and kindness. It grated her after a while that she tried to be friends with everyone and Pacifica seemed bent on making her feel inadequate, until the end of this episode where they gave her a ride home and you begin to see how isolated she has been. For a while she really resented Mabel for uncovering unsavory lies about an ancestor of hers that helped found the town.
Then in a later episode you learn her parents make her a nervous wreck, keep her on a short leash where she barely knows how to be independent, and she has been feeling the weight of their family's awful doings for a while. She takes the first step towards being her own person by siding with Dipper over them in an attempt to save the townspeople.
The show has a lot of undercurrents of rifts caused by class that would not be touched by 100% of shitty Disney sitcoms which happily ignore that reality. Again, I don't know how this even got on the air.
I don't get why you like characters in the alpha bitch trope.
awesome how it's cool to make your show look like family guy. what a great standard.
