Default You Sound Vilious

In Dennis the Menace today there was this exchange:

Martha (to George): You sound vilious.

George: I'm not vilious.

I'm probably spelling it wrong, but I can't find anything by searching for the word. I tried searching with 2 L's and nothing that way, either.

At the time he sounded like he was going off the deep end about not wanting to put out the trash, and wanting to go to some faraway place to fish.

Does anyone know what this word means and how it's spelled? I've never heard it before.

I remember Martha saying this before, but I was not exactly sure what it meant. I thought that maybe it had something to do with being confused.

Thanks! It would have helped if I'd noticed it was b, not v.
