    Trivia (37)

    • The acronym E.V.I.L. stand for "Every Villain is Lemons".

    • The issue of the "Fancy Living Digest"(December 2002) came after this episode released. (June 2002)

    • The lies SpongeBob and Patrick told to sell their chocolate bars were: - You rub it on your skin, and it will make you live forever. - It will make your hair grow. - It will make you sound smarter. - It will keep your face from getting any uglier. - They will bring world peace. - You will fall in love. - It will make you fly. - You will walk through walls. - You will rule the world! They also said they need an operation; but they don't, so that's a lie too.

    • The villains Barnacle Boy, Manray and Dirty Bubble were on the news doing bad stuff, but they barely just got out of the Krusty Krab.

    • It is not explained how Sandy could be invisible underwater.

    • When The Fish crazy for chocolate asks for all of their chocolate, a Hershey's Kiss falls out of Patrick's pants. This is obviously a reference to Hershey's kisses, a small chocolate the Hershey's brand makes.

    • Magazine: Fancy Living Digest This is similar to the magazine Reader's Digest.

    • The Flash SpongeBob's abilty to run fast is the same abilty that DC's comics character The Flash has.

    • Barnacle Chips The magician on the Barnacle Chips ad looks very similar to Chip and/or Skip from Camp Lazlo.

    • Hermes The wings on the Quickster's shoes and goggles could be a reference to Hermes, the Greek god who also had wings on his sandals and hat.
