Bree: Okay... so I'm kind of in a blue mood again today... and I want to tell you all about it, but I can't... so I'm going to talk about my eyes. Basically when I was three months old it became very clear to my mom and my dad that my left eye had no real desire to enter into a working relationship with my right one. Some of you might call that lazy eye. (Crosses her eyes) So when I was four they gave me an eye patch. (P. Monkey is shown with an eye patch) They also threw in this really cool bonus treatment where I got to put a monkey into a cage. (P. Monkey shown with a laundry basket over him.) Once a week we would go to the optometrist's office and there would be this big machine... and I would look into it with my left eye and I would see a monkey, and I would look into it with my right eye and there would be a cage. My job would be to put the monkey in the cage, thus bringing my left eye in agreement with my right eye. It's pretty cool, huh? Why am I telling you this? Because I'm having certain issues with my parents right now which I can't talk about, so I thought I'd bore you with a metaphor instead. My parents are unable to see things from my point of view no matter how much I try and explain it to them. I learned how to see the world from a completely different point of when I was four... so why is it so hard for them? (P. Monkey proceeds to dance)
- From the summer of 2006 through January 2008, this was the most watched Lonelygirl15 video of all time, reaching over 2,000,000 views on YouTube. On January 26, 2008, it was eclipsed by Girl Tied Up.
- This video hasn't been brought over to Revver.com, most likely due to the use of "Promiscuous" by Nelly Furtado in the P. Monkey dancing scene.
- Josh Bader made an animated version of this episode.
- Bree never explains exactly what she and her parents disagreed about to prompt her to make this video.
- In recent years, "lazy eye" is being treated with prescription eye drops, instead of the eye patch system Bree describes.
- The inspiration for Bree's monologue came from a book written by Mesh Flinders's mother.
