The story of Recyclops
As told in the cold open of The Office episode, Shareholder Meeting:
Recyclops: Bow down before Recyclops!
Jim: Five years ago, Corporate said we had to start a recycling program for Earth Day. So Dwight took the lead on that and introduced us to a very close friend of his named Recyclops.
Recyclops: Happy Earth Day, everyone. I’m Recyclops. Did you know that an old milk carton can be sawed in half and used as a planter?
Jim: The next year, he really stepped things up.
Recyclops: Who has put a #7 plastic in a #4 bin?
Jim: A year after that, Recyclops really began to take shape.
Recyclops: Recyclops will drown you in your over-watered lawns!
Jim: Then tragedy struck Recyclops, when his fictional planet was attacked by some other fictitious thing, I can’t remember.
Recyclops: Recyclops will have his revenge!
Jim: I think this was also the year that he renounced Earth Day, and vowed to destroy the planet he once loved.
Pam: Omigod, you guys, look! It’s Recyclops!
Recyclops: Recyclops destroys!
Stanley: Oh is today Recyclops Day?
Stanley: I thought you were killed by Polluticorn or something.
Recyclops: Polluticorn wishes!
Andy: That’s aerosol spray. It’s terrible for the environment!
Recyclops: Humans are terrible for the environment!
Pam: The thing I like most about Recyclops is that he’s creating a different world for our child. A world where you truly can be anything you want.
Jim: God bless you, Recyclops, and your cold robot heart.
