“Being a freak is the best. I’m a freak.” – Jonathan

Episode: “MadMax”

Yet another piece of real truth from ultimate older bro Jonathan which comes in the form of another brother-to-brother talk between him and Will where he attempts to make Will feel better and give him some sage advice.

Will is understandably feeling bad after basically returning to school from the dead and everyone makes fun of him for it. At school, Will is called a ‘freak’ because of his situation and Jonathan informs Will of the value of being a freak.

Jonathan claims that no one normal ever did anything special, and it is indeed freaks who rule the world. This is important for Will to hear at the time because it helps him to feel better about the strange situation he is in.

Often in these kinds of uplifting conversations, people say ‘it’s okay to be a freak’ but what Jonathan is saying is that being a freak is great!

It’s also a reminder for all of us that even if you are a freak in your real life and even if you feel that you don’t belong that there are indeed people out there like you. You’re not alone. You can join that big community of freaks that as Jonathan points out, make the world go round.

Plus its just fun to hear Jonathan say that he is also a freak, what a great older bro.
