When Richard gives Larry’s hairdresser a bad review for saying he’s bald, he gets offered a free haircut. This inspires Gumball and Darwin to go on a reviewing spree across town, forcing Larry to give them stuff with the threat of a bad review. But, just because the customer is always right doesn’t mean that what they’re doing isn’t wrong.

At the Barber
[Larry is giving a shave to Principal Brown and takes the cape off afterwards]
Larry: There. All done. Let me show you the back.
[He moves the mirror repeatedly for Pirncipal Brown, making a few stops along the way]
Principal Brown: Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. [Gasps] Perfect. Same time tomorrow?
Larry: Of course, sir.
[Larry starts up the vacuum whilst Principal Brown leaves the barber. Larry sucks up the hair that was covering Richard at the time with the vacuum whilst he was reading a newspaper]
Larry: Oh, Mr. Watterson, I didn't see you there. So, how can I help? [He puts the cape around Richard's neck]
Richard: Just a trim, please. Something like this. [He shows Larry a photo]
Larry: Uh, sir, there is a slight problem.
Richard: If you're worried I can't pay, I can assure you I went through my wife's purse this morning.
Larry: Actually, I had another concern. [Whilst swiping his finger on Richard's head] You, uh, appear to be... bald. [Echoes, whilst Richard falls to his side and screams high-pitchedly]
Richard: I'm not bald! Bald people are a joke!
Larry: Uh, I'm bald, sir.
Richard: Exactly! Listen, I came here for a haircut! I'm not leaving until I get one!
[Larry looks carefully at Richard's one hair]
Larry: Uh, are you sure?
[Larry carefully cuts Richard's one hair, creating a dramatic scene making the hair look like a tree being chopped down whilst having music play over it]
Larry: Is everything OK?
Richard: Mm-hmm. [He walks away with tears in his eyes]
[Back at home]
Richard: Disgraceful! First, he gives me this insult of a haircut, then he has the audacity to call me bald! Me - Richard Watterson! How dare he... [Gets quietly interrupted by Gumball and Darwin]
Gumball: How long's he been going on like this?
[Gumball sighs, and both take out their earplugs]
Gumball: Dude, you don't have ears. Where did you put those?
Darwin: Oh. So that's why they didn't work.
Gumball: So, how long has he been going on like this?
Darwin: About three days. Mr. Dad, why didn't you just tell Larry there and then that you weren't happy?
Richard: And waste my precious breath on someone so deluded?! I mean, do I look like a guy who's lost his hair?!
Darwin: Uh, stand still. It's kind of hard to tell with the light bouncing off your head.
Gumball: Dad, you've gotta step up and do the right thing - leave a mean review of Larry online and ruin his life with complete anonymity.
Richard: Hmm. That's both lazy and cowardly. Pass me the laptop. [A guitar plays while Richard writes a mean review about Larry, then there's lots of errors] Agh! Anyone know my login? I've forgotten it.
Gumball: Okay, what do you want to say?
Richard: I left this hairdresser a sad, broken man.
Gumball :Dad, you went in a sad, broken man. The key to a good online interview is to take out all the frustration you have in your life on someone who totally doesn't deserve it. [The guitar resumes and Darwin and Richard wince at some dirty insults that Gumball made up] And viola.
Richard: And... send! [The phone rings instantly, so Richard picks the line up] Hello?
Larry: [On the phone]: It's Larry.
Richard, Gumball and Darwin: It's Larry!
Richard: It's Larry?
Larry: Uh, yes, it's Larry. I'm calling about your review.
Richard: How are you so sure it was me? I used a fake name.
Larry: Well, actually, you signed the review 'Richard'.
Richard: But I meant a different Richard.
Larry: A different Richard Watterson?
Richard:I have a very common name.
Larry: You uploaded your photo.
Richard: I.. have a very common face?
Larry: What you said was uncalled for, mean, and, frankly, full of dramatic errors. But it's my philosophy that the customer is always right, so if you take down the review, you can get free haircuts for you and your family.
Larry: And you have a thick head of hair.
Richard: How thick?
Larry: Quite thick?
Richard: I'll take it! [Hangs up] Now, if you kids will excuse me, I'm off to buy a com-b.
Gumball: Did you see what happened there? All we have to do is threaten Larry with a bad review, and he'll give us free stuff! And that guy works everywhere! It's a victimless crime!
Darwin: Apart from Larry.
Gumball: Effortless. It's an effortless crime.
[Soon, at Chez Larry]
Gumball: [Strained)] Dude, we ate too much. I'm gonna loosen my belt.
Darwin: [Strained] Me too.
[Gumball and Darwin's bellies expand to touch each other]
Gumball & :Darwin: Belly five!
Larry: I hope everything was to your liking, gentlemen. Here's your check.
Gumball: Uh, I don't think we'll be paying.
Larry: And why would I give you a free meal?
Gumball: Because that's the sort of generous touch that guarantees you a glowing five star review!
Larry: I don't think so.
Darwin: Four stars it is, then.
Larry: [Gasps] Hey, stop that! One bad review online is all it takes to drag a place down!
Gumball: Talking back to a customer? Three stars. [Patrons screaming and fighting] Take it down to two. Maybe we can get a free dessert. [Larry screams] Want to try for one star, Larry?
Larry: [Screams] Okay, okay, your meal is free!
Gumball: Five stars. Would come again. We'll take the desserts to go.
Larry: We don't do takeout--
[Gets interrupted by Gumball nearly giving the restaurant one star, and sighs]
Gumball: Boring! Ugh! Rhinos, flamingos? I've seen it all before. There's nothing new here. It's getting one star.
Larry: What?! You want new animals?! Breaking the laws of nature seems kind of wrong. [Gets interrupted again by Gumball nearly giving the zoo one star] But the customer is always right!
