Deltarune Chapter 1 ending Deltarune.png In the chapter 1 ending, when Kris can visit the town, they can met with Alphys, which to congratulate on trying so hard to find the chalk, she gifts Kris the home-made DVD collection of the Symptons, the sitcom about the middle-class monster family, containing every episode in all 28 seasons, being the funniest, most quotable show ever. But then warns Kris to not watch after the second season, since they rebooted it as Symptons Turbo, where they all starting driving their own motor-vehicles and then proceeding to blab about the show before Kris interrupts her saying they don't want to watch it.
Funny enough, the episode that aired a few days after the release of the game, "Baby You Can't Drive My Car", focused on a self-driving car company coming to Springfield and poaching all of the power plant employees with their fun work environment, focusing on cars.
