Don't give up, Mordecai by Dalton709 Don't give up, Mordecai by Dalton709
“I just want to leave this town and start all over.”

I know that in Monday Night’s episode of Regular Show, Steak Me Amadeus, this didn’t happen; Mordecai wasn’t at a bus stop at all.

Mordecai was sad at the end of the episode, but I drew him at this bus stop for a reason. Mordecai and Margaret were not technically boyfriend and girlfriend since he asked her to be his girlfriend in the episode.

But what would happen if she was his girlfriend and she dumped him? I had an idea of what would happen and this came out in Paint Tool Sai thanks to my tablet and pen. I just see Mordecai at a bus stop, wishing that he would escape all of this drama and heartbreak by running away.

“The ship has sunk” as many people would call it. People who support the Mordecai x Margaret pairing are either pissed off or upset that they were not meant to be just yet in the show. Well, ladies and gentlemen, this is all going to probably be built up into Season 5, which isn’t a bad idea. I actually loved that episode and it was well written. I didn’t even expect the Animatronics to return until the last few seconds before the big reveal. Overall, this was a good episode. Second to Fuzzy Dice in my list of favorite episodes.

But anyway, back to this drawing. The bench says, “Don’t give up, the beginning is always the hardest.” I did this because most benches advertise something and I just had to put a powerful statement there and this drawing means something. That statement and this drawing of Mordecai hunched over, crying, all relates to Steak Me Amadeus.

Think about it: Mordecai was sad at the end of the episode and Rigby was there to be empathetic towards his best friend or his bro. To be denied relationship wise is pretty heartbreaking, and it takes awhile to get over. Mordecai shouldn’t give up because this is only the beginning and yes, it’s hard. The beginning for him is to be upset and impatient until Margaret returns. They were already getting rather close to one another and probably when Margaret comes back from the college of her dreams, her and Mordecai would get back together since they both were compatible with each other. Margaret even admitted that she felt like she was in a really great connection with him and it would work.

Now, that brings us to Margaret and her choices between Mordecai, the love of her dreams or the college of her dreams, where she can start her career. If she chose Mordecai, she would be with him and be happy, but, what about the career that she threw away? The beginning of her life with Mordecai would have been tough because she wouldn’t have been able to earn the degree and start her own career. Her family would not be proud. Mordecai would blame himself for her decision and there are probably more things that would happen. She would have to overcome that decision and overcome events.

She did choose the college over Mordecai. And she was so upset, she ran off crying. You saw how upset she was. She wanted Mordecai. She thought that he was the one. You have to stop and realise that she did mention that guys are “jerks” in Camping Can Be Cool and she has had trouble with some guys in the past. She really liked Mordecai and thought that he was that one guy in her dreams every night. A guy that would treat her right. A guy that would be there through thick and thin. But she chose that college over him. She would have never been able to have another opportunity to get into that college again. College doesn’t work that way.

As she goes off to college she will, of course, think about Mordecai and how sweet he is. But she will feel upset for making Mordecai upset as well. But that is only the beginning for her. The beginning for her is to overcome that and to start her career so she and her family would be proud of her. And more importantly, Mordecai. And when she does get her degree and her career started, her and Mordecai could meet up and officially date!

Yes, it was a tough decision that affected both Mordecai and Margaret, but again, the beginning for the both of them is hard and they should never give up. Be patient. That is the moral point of this drawing.

Mordecai did like Margaret for a while, but when she went back to school, he went on with another girl. CJ became his girlfriend in the future seasons, but I don't know why she let the relationship go for a while... Mordecai and CJ should have gone on with their relationship and gotten married to each other.

I can relate to poor Mordecai.
But I really really love to read that "don't give up the beginning is always the hardest"....I can't tell you how much those words meant to me to read.
After reading that is partly why I'm not gonna give up.Those are wonderful words. :meow:
Very nice.

Margaret actually HAD a future. Mordecai is nothing more than a low income park groundskeeper who doesn't even have his own home to live in.

In other cases:

Margaret: Responsible about her future and her goals in life.

Mordecai: Slacker who has no real future.

after losing his girlfriend, it was the first of the many misfortunes in his life that were to come. Eventually he and Rigby were fired from their jobs and spent some time in a state of poverty. Before they could return to re-apply for thier jobs, the park was shut down for good, causing them to fall into a state of commiting crimes and begging in the streets just to survive. In a psychotic rage and under the delusion that Rigby ruined his life, Mordecai Kills rigby and dumps his body in the river. Out of his remorse and guilt of what he had dome, Mordecai brands his left arm to remember Rigby and proceeds to make a living playing videogames. He is unfortunately is unsuccessful and as a result, his hands become arthritic, he loses his mental stability from the videogames, he loses his eyesight from playing too much videogames, and his back becomes horribly deformed from hunching over too many times. as the years pass he grew old and he grew mean with psychotic anger. He was forced to make clothes from rags and survive on other people's leftovers. in the end he spends his last years in the abandoned house in the park that he once worked in as a broken old wretch.

Wow... that speech you gave really spoke to me.  And you know what, I agree, I don't think it's over between Mordecai and Margaret.  I have a feeling they'll stay in touch with each other as season five begins.  And hopefully, someday, somewhere in season five or six, she'll come back, and she and Mordecai can finally be in the romantic relationship we've all dreamed of!

And you're right about this week's episode.  As sad as it was, it really WAS well-written, and really had me through a loop, or however it's said.  I was really surprised to see that Margaret got accepted into Milton University.  And seeing how sad she was that she and Mordecai couldn't be boyfriend and girlfriend -- at least not yet, as far as I can see -- and how much she really loved him added so much drama to the episode, I could actually FEEL their mutual sadness!  I actually wanted to cry at that exact moment of time!

Thank you, my friend, for uploading this picture.  It really gave me a lot to think about.  :)

"Be patient"

thank you, because i can hardly believe the lack of faith some fans have. this show may indeed be allowed a long running time- mordecai and margaret can easily still end up together. its just going to take time. it's like a rule that the hero can't "offically" get the girl until the very end anyway. XD

Dalton709 Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Exactly! Some of the fans just need to be a bit more patient because in the long run, they will be together. I know that we were teased numerous times and we kind of see it coming in some episodes, but again, when is the question. 

 Like I said before, I know that they are building it up to something. I have a feeling, maybe, a movie? I don't know. I hope so though. Plus, we still have the Thanksgiving Episode and the new Halloween episode to go through. Those two episodes are going to be awesome. :)

Yes, if those two ultimately don't get hitched and grow old together I will be very surprised and saddened. I suppose if the creators wanted to surprise us they could end it differently, but the show so far as been pretty predictable and somehow I trust the writers to to not do that to us. XD

Huh. You know, I am about to start my 2nd year in college and do know how it feels to choose your education over your friends/relationships/social lives, but it's mandatory in life to get a degree, let alone an education these days.

When I first saw the episode, I was just speechless and upset for a couple days that I kinda stop watching RS in those couple of days, just because of the ending. To me, RS didn't feel the same anymore, you know?  (That doesn't mean I give up on the show, it's lucky that Benson's my favorite character, LOL!) 

But now that I think about it, I do agree with you on Margaret choosing her career over Mordecai. I believe that she made a mature and realistic decision to go to school for her career so that she can improve on her life and that she can return to Mordecai to maybe improve his life too since he works as a groundskeeper living on minimum wage. Then again, she DID mention about her wanting to go to a university miles away from home; I just didn't expect it to happen all of a sudden and that's probably how the fans felt as well. I mean it could have been worse, Margaret wouldn't get a degree and just be stuck working as a coffee girl for Lord knows how long.

And you're right about the theme of your image: The beginning IS toughest part of everything that happens in life yet we manage to fight through it in the middle and win victoriously at the end and remember it. Same goes to Mordecai in this case so stay strong, man.

Yeah, I haven't given up on the show just yet. I still believe that they are going to build it up to something. I don't know how many more seasons they are going to make, but let's hope that it will continue for a little while more. (And yes! Benson! Lol!) I was in utter shock at the ending and just like all of the fans, I didn't expect it.

Thanks for agreeing! 

And exactly!
