  • Quotes (14)

    • Carl: What do we do now? Sheen: There's only one thing we can do. (scene cuts to a small lizard on a cage) Sheen: Bonzilla?!? He's only 10 inches high. What a rip-off! He probably couldn't hurt... (Bonzilla blows fire on Sheen) Sheen: (moans) Jimmy, what's the Japanese word for "Ambulance"? (faints)

    • Store Clerk: Doom Bringer II is for mature players only due to Violence, Exaggerated Mayhem, and Old Lady Kicking.

    • Tremendous Jackson: Somewhere in the Rytridian Galaxy, Ultralord weeps.

    • Tremendous Jackson: As I gaze upon these players' young faces, I am filled with pride. They're here because of their hard work and patience, long hours of practice. (Jimmy gulps) Tremendous Jackson: Not because of any high-tech gloves-- (Jimmy looks surprised) Tremendous Jackson: --or automatic home-run hitting bats. (Jimmy smiles sheepishly, embarrassed)

    • Carl: (singing) Oh, I wish I was a llama in a great big llama world....

    Trivia (10)

    • Running Gag: Every time Jimmy's team hits the ball out the park, it hits Hugh on the head.

    • When Principal Whilloughby announces that Jimmy's team is going to Japan, everyone in the classroom cheers and gets all exited, including Butch and his teamates. Why would Butch's team be happy that Jimmy's team is going to Japan and not theirs. Not to mention Butch pretty much hates Jimmy.

    • When they will be old men, Sheen, Jimmy, and Carl (or at least Jimmy) will have Alzheimer's disease, because when they were made old, they couldn't remember anything.

    • Carl's mom is 42 years old.

    • When Old Jimmy first woke up, it was around 7:00 AM. About a minute later, Old Carl and Old Sheen arrived. After about a couple of minutes, they drove off to the Candy Bar. The sign for the Seniors' Buffet said 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM. How can they go to the Seniors' Buffet when it is about 7:05 AM?
