I've got to say that my favorite bit of this film is:

"How 'bout we deposit it one dollar at a time?"

I feel like voice acting and dialogue was generally David's strong point. I remember he made a 5 minute brickfilm for THAC, and while the technical qualities were pretty lackluster, it was still an excellent film because of the dialogue and acting. Dave did some voice work for one of my own films, and I feel his voice acting is what made the film work.

Holy cow.

First off, miss you guys.

Second, I'm deeply honored. Haven't touched Brickfilming in a very long time and this is just a really, really nice reminder of how much I love this place.  Maybe I'll make something this winter once I've moved my LEGO into the new apartment.

Thanks Nate, I'm already thinking of new ideas.

That was hilarious and is definitely a dynamic duo type film done right.  I feel as though this film really did work because of the voice acting as many have already stated.  But the animation was also surprisingly smooth and fluid.  There were a few moments of choppy animation but not enough to ruin the entire film.

Dave! mini/bigsmile

I love Ralph and Rupert. I think Money was the first one that I ever saw. There are so many great lines across the series, but I think the "This is a money..." bit has to be one of my favourite jokes in any brickfilm. Oh, and how could I forget "What are you talking about? You can't think!" Hopefully this feature will bring more current awareness to the series. (find the Watch Now links on the wiki, everybody ;D )

Gotta agree with what has already been said about Dave's voice acting. Littlebrick, I remember that film of yours, and it totally wouldn't have been the same without Dave's voice work.
