Straight Illin Gallery Transcript

Straight Illin is the thirty-fifth episode in Season 1 of Clarence.[1] It was Produced in 2014.


In an escalating series of dares, Clarence eats five hundred deviled eggs, delighting the kids around him. As Clarence grows sicker and sicker, the kids get more and more grossed out until they want nothing to do with him.[2]


The episode begins in the school cafeteria, where Jeff, Sumo, Blaide, Vu and Brady dares Clarence to do several different things. Clarence is shown imitating Ms. Baker, and after that, he accepts to do more things his friends dare him to do. Belson doesn't like Clarence getting all the attention, so he dares Clarence to eat 500 deviled eggs. Belson walks away thinking he put an end to Clarence's dare game, but to his surprise, Clarence starts handing out invitations to everyone in school to watch him eat the eggs. Later in Clarence's yard, Jeff and Sumo looks at the two tables with hundreds of eggs on them. When Clarence arrives, Jeff tries to tell him eating 500 of anything is a bad idea, but the kids start cheering and no one hears Jeff. Clarence starts eating the eggs, and things are going great for a while, but later when there's barely any eggs left, Clarence gets extremely full. Belson is in total surprise that Clarence has already eaten so many, and when Clarence manages to swallow the last egg, all the kids cheer for Clarence, except for Belson, who is angry.

Later, as Jeff, Sumo, Belson and Percy are playing ball, a very ill Clarence wants to join in, but the others think he shouldn't, and despite coughing a lot, Clarence tries to convince Jeff that he's okay. Jeff and the others make excuses that they have to go, and Belson tells Clarence that his face looks gross, then he runs off like the others did. In the classroom, Sumo and Jeff talks about Clarence and how ill he is. Suddenly, Clarence enters the room, looking worse than ever. Clarence shows everyone that he made Clarence Dollars, and Belson tells him he already made those "a hundred years ago", so Clarence starts searching his bag for other stuff to show everyone, but as he's doing so, he continues coughing and sneezing too. Ms. Baker tells him to go see the nurse, but Clarence again denies that he's ill, so he takes his seat in the middle of the room, causing everyone around him to move their desks further away. Jeff tells Sumo they have to get Clarence to see the nurse, so he tells him his plan.

In the cafeteria, Clarence is so ill that he has a hard time eating his pudding. Jeff is one table across from Clarence, and talking to Sumo on the walkie-talkie, who is crawling through the air vent tubes. Sumo has trouble hearing Jeff because the fans are to loud. When Sumo yells over the walkie-talkie, Clarence looks up and sees Jeff. Clarence walks up to Jeff, then he hears Sumo on the walkie-talkie and wonders what game they're playing. Jeff runs out of the cafeteria, and Clarence follows him. Jeff goes in a small closet and goes up through a hole in ceiling. As Sumo continues trying to contact Jeff, Jeff appears and tells him to keep going because Clarence is following them, but Sumo's legs are stuck. At that moment, Clarence appears behind them and sneezes, causing germs to spread all around the school through the air vents. As Clarence continues walking up to Jeff and Sumo, they all fall through the ceiling due to Clarence's weight gain and into the nurse's room, where everybody else is waiting in line to see the nurse. Nathan is mad at Clarence for causing everyone to get sick. Suddenly, Belson appears with a bag full of eggs and he tells everyone that he's going to eat 600 scrambled eggs. As he's eating, the principal announces that school is cancelled for a week due to the egg virus. All the kids congratulate Clarence and runs out the school, paying no attention to Belson eating the scambled eggs, ending the episode.


It End Ups As The Breakup.


Major Characters[]

Minor Characters[]


  • Clarence had three sick designs throughout the episode, the first was when he met his friends in the playground, the second is from the scene in which he appears in the classroom until when he briefly faints in the cafeteria and the last is from the moment in which he wakes up until the end of the episode.
  • It is not known how Clarence returned to normal after this episode, as at no other time is it mentioned how he could have gotten rid of the illness he had.
  • It is also unknown whether Mary and Chad were aware of Clarence's illness, as they did not appear in the episode, and he still goes to school, and the two would probably not let him go due to his serious conditions.
  • Some characters that were present in the episode were not shown to be infected later.
  • The episode aired only once without words due to its content and the reaction it received. Despite this, it can still be viewed on the Cartoon Network website, and on HBO Max before the series was removed from the service on May 8, 2023.
  • When this episode first aired on Cartoon Network Asia, three scenes were edited out:
      1. The scene where Clarence drinks the milk and orange juice from the boot was entirely cut due to it being extremely gross.
      2. In later airings of this episode, the scene where Clarence plays with Brady's glasses was cut, most likely to shorten this episode.
      3. When this episode first aired on Cartoon Network Asia, the scene where Belson pushes Brady off the lunch seat was cut.

Episode Connections[]

  • This episode was referenced in "Slumber Party, when Jeff and Sumo were discussing how Clarence once ate all 500 deviled eggs.
    • It hinted that this may have been taken before Slumber Party, however this may be unlikely, since in the aforementioned episode, Jeff and Sumo were still somewhat unknown (as this was one of the first episodes), whereas here they had already known Clarence for a long time..
  • Music from The Forgotten is reused.
  • The events of Clarence's Millions and Honk are referenced.
  • Clarence Dollars make a re-appearance in this episode.

Cultural References[]

  • The "Wocka Wocka Wocka" phrase Clarence says is a reference to the arcade game Pac-Man
  • The plot involving Clarence eating 500 deviled eggs is similar to Cool Hand Luke, where Paul Newman's character bets that he can eat 50 hard-boiled eggs in one hour.


  • This episode has received negative reception from a numerous amount of reviewers and fans due to the episode depicting a grossing content while outright describing the episode being out of place, criticizing Belson as the reasons. The episode was deemed the worst (or one of the worst) episode of the show. The controversy resulted in the episode being banned after its original airing unknowingly from Cartoon Network completely (while occasionally appearing on demand).
    • On IMDb, the episode has a score of 5.7 out of 10, the lowest out of any episode, as user review negatively criticized the episode from having much of the grossed out parts of the character getting sick.


  • In the scene where Clarence has a spoon on his head and Jeff laughs, the back area's top color changes to light blue.
