    • (While on the phone) AJ: Are you playing the Crash Nebula video game? shouldn't you be studying? Timmy: What are you? my mom? (Timmy hangs up) AJ: Hey genius, you missed the receiver (Timmy hangs up again) AJ: Nope, still off

    • Timmy's Dad: Son, do you know why we're disappointed in this F? Timmy: Because I could do better than that? Timmy's Dad: You can? Timmy's Mom: What? What a relief! We were going to blame ourselves!

    • Timmy: In an infinite universe where reality is interpreted through our continuously fluxuating perception, providing absolute definitive proof of anything becomes a little more than speculation based on random data.

    • Jorgen: My muscles are to big and can't reach face!

    • Timmy: I wish I had some more ninjas to fight! (Silence) Hellooooo?

    Notes (6)

    • In Action Packed we learn Cosmo is alergic to dust.

    • We learn in this episode that 'Da Rules won't let Cosmo or Wanda help Timmy win any competition.

    • Vicky's Head Gag: Brain Since Timmy participated in the "brain-a-thon" and became really smart in the episode Smarty Pants, the gag in this episode was a brain.

    • AJ doesn't know the answer to the Crash Nebula question, which is odd since he's the biggest fan of it between himself, Chester, and Timmy. Reply: AJ is probably too busy to watch Crash Nebula.

    • Running Gag: People saying, 'Go ...'

    Trivia (3)

    • In Action Packed, before Timmy punches it, his pillow is horizontally from the bed, but when he starts punching the pillow, the pillow is vertically from the bed, similar to a punching bag

    • In Smarty Pants, during the quiz competition, the Banana Slug is refered to as an insect. Slugs, snails and other animals in that group are gastropods, not insects!

    • In Smarty Pants, Timmy talks about the Texas Revolution. He says that the Alamo was when they won their independence, but it was actually in San Jacinto.

    • The game console that Timmy is playing with in Smarty Pants resembles closely Playstation One features. The game controller resembles the controllers from the Nintendo SNES controllers

    • Timmy chased by a big rolling boulder This is a reference from the famous scene where Inidana Jones is being chased by a huge rolling boulder after he steals the Hovito Idol from an ancient temple in Raiders of the Lost Ark. The way Timmy evaded the boulder seemed to be from Matrix

    • Quizmaster: The category is Potpourri. In Smarty Pants, the subject for the last question is "Potpourri", which is also the name of the grab bag category on Jeopardy!
