  • Quotes (6)

    • Jimmy: How did you guys get in... Carl: (pessimistically) Bag of your hair. (holds up bag) Jimmy: Well, how did you guys get a bag of my... never mind.

    • Jimmy: Guys! This isn't the time for blame. If it were I'd be saying things like "I tried to tell you" and "Why didn't you jerks listen to me?"

    • Sheen: Too bad you didn't get anything from the comet to make me feel better.... Jimmy: Nope, I sure didn't! So anyway, Goddard hits him with the ion blast, and it doesn't even phase him! So then I said, "Hit him with a particle beam!"-- Sheen: So you're sayin' I should battle the eight foot monster of rejection with a particle beam of my amazing talents?! Jimmy: ...No, not exactly. Sheen: I'll do it! (proudly walks off) Jimmy: (sighing) I have to work on my story-telling skills....

    • Sheen: Please let me in the chorus! My voice grows on you! Miss Fowl: So do liver spots, but I don't make you look at them! (laughs) Willoughby: (trying not to laugh) Now, Miss Fowl, that's not funny. (starts to laugh) Okay, okay, it was a little funny.... Sheen: (offended) I have half a mind to report you! Willoughby: Half a mind? No wonder you can't sing! (Sheen stalks off as Willoughby and Miss Fowl laugh harder) Willoughby: (finally recovers from laughing) We are so fired.

    • Willoughby: Look, Sheen, as chorus master, I know talent-- Miss Fowl: And that's what you have - no talent!

    Trivia (3)

    • Also contributing to the submission below, since ice is water in a solid form, and the human body is composed of approximately 90% water, it would be impossible to be allergic to water, because he would be allergic to himself. Of course, the possibility of being allergic to anything and everything is a constant running gag of the Wheezer family

    • If Mr. Wheezer is allergic to ice, how does he survive winter?

    • When Cindy pushes Jimmy, her twonkie is pink, but after that, Isabella is green.

    Allusions (5)

    • Graystar: Name and Appearance The band name in the episode was taken from the real band Graystar, consisting of Dominic James (lead vocals), Craige Finnie (lead guitar), Niel Hartly (drum/precussion), Tim Dyer (keyboards), and John Reynolds (bass). In the episode the band is more of a punk/rock band though.

    • When Jimmy drops Hugh off at the grocery store, Hugh floats down with an umbrella, the same way Mary Poppins used to do.

    • Jimmy: Atomic batteries to power ... turbines to speed....
      In Batman, Robin would say this before the Batmobile started up.

    • Willoughby: (singing) Library! We've got the cutest little library.... The books are stacked by author, A-Z, and all for free!

      Willoughby's song was to the tune of Brenda Lee's "Baby Face."

    • Jimmy's Rocket Concert Piece
      The music that Jimmy is playing inside the rocket is Boccerini's "Minuet in A Major."
