BeeAre: Ladies and Gentlemen, “Crying” by Roy Orbison! By the way, if you look up the video for one of the older black and white performances, the audience looks all stone-faced and silent despite the emotional overtones of the song. I think it’s kinda creepy. :O

    Bell is weird most of the time but is it true that she’s a powerpuff girl

    Funny, this kind of reminds me of Killua from Hunter X Hunter, who has no problem ripping off hearts of people or talking about graphic torture, but then finds a fish’s skin absolutely disgusting.

    Examples aside, it’s always weird to see Zim being scared of someone, considering how rare it is, but it’s interesting. Professor X seems to be muuuuuuch less in control than he thinks he is.

    Gore is one thing, too many eyes is just way too much for her though.

      I’m reminded of the Patton Oswalt comedy bit where he accidentally is flipping through the channels and ends up putting on the Wolfman movie remake in front his daughter. He has the bad luck to turn to the channel right when the werewolf is in full wolf transformation and roaring and being scary. Then, he shows her Schoolhouse Rock to try to make her forget about it, including the “‘Dem Bones” song about how you have a skeleton inside you.
      His daughter wakes him and his wife (R.I.P.) up in the middle of the night, and he expects this, because of the werewolf, but then she cries and explains that the idea of a skeleton inside your body that could, as in the video, jump out of you, is very scary to her.
      She then laughs about the hairy wolf man wearing a shirt, and goes to sleep.
      What I’m saying is: different people find different things scary.
      But the logic in my mind went like this, in Bell’s case: A “big sister”-figure who is calm if a bit irritated all the time pulls off her skin acting the same way she always does. Even if it could be bad, Bell’s dad was there. Despite him being nervous, she trusts that he could fix the situation if it did actually become a problem. On the other hand, her dad turning into a monster means he can’t *fix* the problem, because he *is* the problem.
      So Dr. X has to convince her he’s not a problem. …That’s my thought process on this scene, anyway.

        I don’t take comedy skits seriously as a form of psychological thinking on a child’s point of view, since it’s suppose to be funny and not reasonable. I knew exactly what the logic creating the fear for Bell was. Here’s my thought process on how Bell should be with both Samantha and her father:
        I’m going by the psychology of a child being scared, not the general idea that people find different things scary. I use to think it was that simple, “a person can be scared of anything”, while this is true, it depends on their upbringing and situation when said “scary” scenario happened.
        I don’t know every detail of Bell’s childhood, which makes this explanation possibly filled with holes, but it appears she generally had a ‘normal’ childhood except with a few different looking people and she was subject to testing. This can be similar to Bell living in a hospital all her life but with an alien as a next door neighbor whom they see as ‘normal’ because of knowing them for so long.
        She’s presumably with the mind of a spoiled 11 year old right now. I’m presuming she’s about 5 – 8 years.
        Right now she seems to be stuck in the middle between having gaining a possible fear that is not based on ‘reality’ as well as fears based on reality. As in scary movies/paranormal and having bodily harm/disasters possibly done to them/others.
        We’ve established so far that, from what Samantha has said, Bell hasn’t seen anything ‘drastic’. Samantha herself does not see ripping off her arm to show mechanics to a little girl as ‘drastic’, so she does it. With what has been given about Bell, I see no reason as to why she wouldn’t at least be worried about Samantha because of the harm she has done because even though Samantha doesn’t show absolute pain (like she should be doing because she’s ripping her arm off and it’s obviously painful) the discomfort, stuttering, and blood would not be something that is based within Bell’s current reality. Same thing applies with her father but at a more simple level of him turning into a ‘monster’. It doesn’t make sense to her.
        In short, it doesn’t make sense to me why she would be scared of one and not the other based on the above. If she wasn’t scared of either, as long as something previously established on her personality or a previous situation explaining her it’s all ‘okay’, that’d be fine too.

        This reminds me a bit of a story a friend told me about how they managed to get fired permanently from a babysitting job. The kids were being particularly rambunctious, and she needed some time to herself to make dinner (that was part of the deal, she would make them dinner). She thought maybe watching a movie might keep them still long enough for her to get dinner ready, and noticed that the family had a number of Studio Ghibli DVD’s. My friend had never actually SEEN any Studio Ghibli films but had heard that kids tended to like them. So she sat the kids down, popped in one of the DVD’s and one she saw that they indeed had quieted down went off to get dinner ready downstairs.

        About and hour and a half later she was ready for them to come down (she was a full cook, and this was an involved dinner) she called up, and got no response. Going up she found the kids still in the room, rocking back and forth and crying. Turns out that the movie she had selected (not knowing Studio Ghibli) was Grave of the Fireflies. (No I don’t know why she hadn’t bothered to check the DVD box. I guess she thought “It’s a cartoon, how bad can it be?”) Needless to say she never got to babysit at that house again.

          Kid’s comprehension can be impressive and at the same time be at the worst times.

            Not that I would have done much better in her place. I’d have probably put on Pom Poko (my favorite) and then had the kids finish up the night by saying to their parents “The babysitter let us see a movie about funny raccoons with big stretchy ballsacks.”

            My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki’s Delivery Service are generally good classics if she wanted them and herself to watch something “child friendly” within Ghibli (I’m putting that in quotes since Japanese children can handle relatively any Ghibli movie, but their upbringing is much different). Can’t go wrong with a kid’s Disney movie as long as you explain scenes that may seem scary.

    Poor Bell, so traumatized. I guess even for a child, who didn’t flinch seeing somebody rip the skin off their arm to demonstrate the robotic parts, watching their father turn into a monster was just too much. And Zim scared of dr. X? Interesting. That means the changes in his personality have already started and there’s no way back.
