Lumpy Space Princess scenes are my favorite moments in Adventure Time, and for good reason. She has no filter. She speaks her mind, regardless of who’s listening and whose feelings she hurts.
However, Lumpy Space Princess doesn’t have it easy. She’s had to forgo a lot of creature comforts after leaving Lumpy Space behind. And she has to deal with Finn’s rejection over and over.
Through it all, LSP keeps her attitude sassy, even if her perception of reality is a little, well, lumpy. Let’s take a look at some of the best Lumpy Space Princess scenes from Adventure Time.
The all-time best of the Lumpy Space Princess scenes in Adventure Time is when she lets it fly in “Princess Day.” She kicks off her shenanigans by banging on the conference room table, saying she’s “bored out of [her] face” before demanding the princesses stop “talking about dumb stuff that’s lame.” When Breakfast Princess calls her out, Lumpy Space Princess taunts her, then scarfs down some food on her way out the door.
Favorite insult: Marceline hooks up with Lumpy Space Princess (“l-s-p-boos”), and they tear up Breakfast Kingdom. Then Lumpy Space Princess tells Marceline that Breakfast Princess is a “gross pile of greasy hash.”
“To Cut a Woman’s Hair”
Lumpy Space Princess lives like a hobo in the woods on Adventure Time. The first time we see where she lives is in “To Cut a Woman’s Hair,” when Tree Witch tells Finn and Jake to find her some princess hair to cure her baldness.
Finn comes across Lumpy Space Princess, sleeping in a sleeping bag in the forest. (She says something in her sleep about not going “back there,” so we can only guess she ran away from home.)
Favorite demand: While Finn is cutting LSP’s hair, she wakes up and assumes Jake is there because he likes her. In the best Lumpy Space Princess scene, she says, “If you want these lumps, you gotta put a ring on it.”
When Finn and Jake catch up with Lumpy Space Princess in “The Monster,” she tells them a fascinating story about how she was living with wolves. She says the wolves took her in and raised her as their own. But when the drama started, Lumpy Space Princess was not cool.
Favorite outburst: One day, she explodes in the wolf cave, yelling, “Tony! Jessica is cheating on you!” (In reality, the wolves don’t ever say anything, and the “cheating” was simply one wolf grooming another.) Her outburst angers the wolves and they chase Lumpy Space Princess away.
“The Monster” (Cont.)
When Lumpy Space Princess runs away, and Jake and Finn are tasked to find her. On their journey, they come across a village being terrorized by a monster who is eating all of their crops. Finn and Jake realize the monster is actually Lumpy Space Princess.
Favorite insult: When Finn and Jake force LSP to apologize to the people from the village, Lumpy Space Princess winds up angering them even more when she says she’s sorry for eating all their crops, “…even though you’re all still really fat, and I probably helped you lose some weight.”
“Trouble in Lumpy Space”
We learn a lot about Lumpy Space Princess in “Trouble in Lumpy Space,” including the fact that only lumpy people can travel through space without falling into an abyss. We also learn that Lumpy Space Princess used to date someone named Brad, and they used to share chili cheese fries in the back seat of a car at Makeout Point.
Favorite insult: Lumpy Space Princess gets in a jab at Finn and Jake when they first arrive in Lumpy Space. She takes them to her house (really, her parents’ house) and explains that her house is “kinda lame, but way less lame” than their house.
In “Bad Timing,” Lumpy Space Princess targets Princess Bubblegum, but winds up insulting nearly everyone at some point.
Princess Bubblegum creates a time machine. Lumpy Space Princess wants to use it to return to the time when her ex-b.f., Brad, loved her. PB refuses to let her use the time machine and LSP attacks her. LSP calls her a “pretty skunk.”
Lumpy Space Princess drops her first snark bomb when Princess Bubblegum demands an apology: LSP storms out on the longest “sorry” ever, but finishes with a whispered, “Sorry you’re so stupid.”
Later, Lumpy Space Princess runs into an old high school friend, referring to him as Ugly Johnnie. Although, after seeing him at the bar, she says she can’t call him that anymore.
Two snaps up: “Everyone knows me. I’m Lumpy Space Princess.”
