When I bring a basket of fruits to Dr. Shrunk to teach me an emotion/animation, he makes a comment that he will have to teach me a "really good joke" that day compensate me for the many fruits that I brought.

I am curious to know if there is actually a game mechanic which restricts which emotions can be taught, or if that conversation is just a bit of fluff. Are there any emotions that cannot be taught by giving Dr. Shrunk a single fruit, or can they all be unlocked by bringing him a single fruit each day?

    I have no idea how we'd actually verify an answer to this... How do you differentiate a "really good" emote from one that isn't? The joke book doesn't have different headings or anything for emotions. – FAE Jul 1 '13 at 22:01

    @FAE I suppose the easiest way to verify would be through experience -- for example, is it possible to obtain every emotion by giving Dr. Shrunk a single fruit everyday? I'll edit the question a bit, I think I can phrase that problem better. – Anthony Neace Jul 1 '13 at 22:31

    He tells me the "really good joke" line even though I'm giving him cherries (my town fruit)... – Margaret Jul 2 '13 at 2:42

    I actually made a mistake and misclicked giving him 10,000 bells worth of turnips and he ate it just the same! – dukevin Jul 2 '13 at 7:16

Actually, there are no emotions that are unlocked by giving Dr. Shrunk multiple fruit in a day. You need to go to him each day with any fruit of your choice to receive a new emotion. I hope this helped!

    and also, once you've learned all his "jokes," he just reruns his previous jokes. What a waste of a perfect peach Facepalm – Scribblenautical Oct 15 '13 at 22:34
