George Washington Slept Here
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
Mario is setting up a bed in the middle of Mario Brothers Plumbing when Luigi comes in, asking about Mario's plan to turn the place into a bed and breakfast. Mario tries to reassure him, but Luigi is unsure, questioning why anyone would want to come to such a messy place like theirs. Mario then pulls out a sign that says, "George Washington slept heree",[sic] and explains that once rich people hear about Washington sleeping at their place, they will flock to them. Though Luigi complains that Washington never actually slept there, Mario responds by saying that Washington is not around to call them out on lying, and they proceed to fix the bed while whistling "Yankee Doodle".
Suddenly, George Washington appears, and he is extremely angry at Mario and Luigi for saying that he slept in their sloppy home. Mario offers to let Washington relax for a bit while he pulls Luigi our of earshot. He then pulls out a pocket watch and suggests to make Washington fall asleep in order for their sign to not be a lie. They offer to Washington to lie down on their couch while Mario starts to wave the watch in from of him. Luigi joins in by singing a lullaby. However, they end up putting each other to sleep and fall onto the couch next to Washington.
Mario and Luigi both dream about them paddling on a boat with Washington to Valley Forge. Washington orders them to serve as replacements for his army, despite their pleas. Mario offers to change the sign, but Washington cannot forgive their lie, and orders them to swim the final mile in the icy river. Mario and Luigi refuse and continue to plead with him, eventually waking up. They eventually find that George Washington was never actually at their place and that they both had the same dream. Their doorbell then rings, and Ralph Washington (played by the same actor as George Washington) comes through the door. He asks if the bed-and-breakfast has a vacancy, and Luigi comments that he looks familiar. Luigi asks the man for his name, and he responds with Washington. Excitedly, Mario asks if his first name is George, but he denies that, and Luigi tells him that the inn is full. The two brothers then swear to never tell a lie again.
