No! Dare! (9/24/12)

I didn't think truth serum would make him metamorphose from Dean Venture although I don't see as how that makes him self-confident too.

It's turned him into Buddy Love!

The reference to Dean Venture is lost on me. So I'll just comment on the second half of the sentence.

Since apparently Zach has been given a magical level of understanding of How Things Work, there's not really much room for uncertainty here. In my experience, people who know something well - mind you, on a "deep understanding" level, not just on the superficial intellectual level - tend not to be intimidated by it.

I'm curious how things will develop...

It's from the Venture Brothers, a cartoon parody of Johnny Quest among other things. Dean Venture is a relatively smart and nerdy son of Dr. Venture who usually wears a sweater vest and shirt and has his hair styled similar to Zachary.

I wish I could find a better clip, but this is the best I could find: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Af8ltlcZNi0

Thanks for the explanation =) I do know about the cartoon Venture Brothers, but not much beyond that it exists.

Heh, I thought the idea was that she slapped him and gave him a touch of whiplash.
