Dean Vernon is the Dean of the Mars University, and he loves the "peace and quiet and the respect [he] receives" the most. As a result, he hates Robot House (often hollering "Robot House!" after they'd committed some sort of misdeed). Accordingly, he put them on dodecatuple secret probation. Unfortunately for him, after Robot House won the Big Fraternity Raft Regatta, he was not only forced to take them off said probation, but had to serve as a grand marshall in a parade honoring them.

    Dean Vernon: ROBOT HOUSE!!!

    Dean Vernon: You robots are a disgrace to this university. Whenever a fire alarm is pulled, it's Robot House. Whenever the campus liquor store is looted, Robot House. Whenever a human corpse is desecrated--
    Bender: Now, I can explain that.
    Dean Vernon: That's enough out of you. From this day forth, Robot House is on dodecatuple-secret probation!
