    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Cassie: There's this cosmetics company called January Rose and they do testing on animals.
        Marco: So what's wrong with that? A little lipstick never hurt anybody.
        Cassie: Unless they stick it in your eye.
        Marco: Ouch.
        Ax: They... stick it in your eye?

      • Jake: (in monkey morph) Man, I am dying for a banana right about now.

      • Cassie: Well, I don't have anything to wear.
        Rachel: Already covered. You still have that extra money from cleaning the barn for your parents last month?
        Cassie: That's only for emergencies.
        Rachel: This is an emergency. A fashion emergency! Let's go.

      • Marco: Dude, let me ask you something. How come you always get to be the cool things, like dogs and tigers and stuff, and I always have to be like, a duck?
        Jake: What do you have against ducks?
        Marco: Nothing. I like ducks. But why can't you be the duck?
        Jake: Sorry, man, but I can't afford the bill.
        Marco: Oh, heh heh, why don't you just let me handle the jokes, okay?

      • Marco: You know, I never thought I'd be saving the world from aliens before I was old enough to get my driver's license.

      • Visser Three: Well, don't just stand there looking at me! We have a planet to invade.

      • Jake: Rachel, we're in the middle of an alien invasion. Excuse me for not thinking about something as normal as a school dance.
        Marco: Yeah, Rach.
        Rachel: Maybe it wouldn't hurt you to do that once in a while.
        Marco: You're so inconsiderate, Jake.
        Ax: This is interesting. I have no idea what you guys are talking about.

      • (Jake is looking at pictures of the "space garbage" from the museum.)
        Jake: See, I still think this is a weapon. There's the trigger, there's the targeter.
        Marco: No man. It's a transporter.
        Jake: A transporter?
        Marco: Look, there's the signal button. And there's where you get sucked in and sent to some other planet.
        Jake: Sucked in?
        Marco: Sucked in! I know these things, Jake.
        (Ax walks in.)
        Marco: Ax, what's going on? Check this out.
        Ax: What are you doing with this? How did you get pictures of an intercellular rehydration and cleansing system coil?
        Jake: Whoa, you know what this thing is?
        Ax: Yes of course, this is -- all Andalites use these.
        Marco: So what does it do?
        Ax: What... does it do? It... it's quite private...
        Jake: Ax, come on man.
        Ax: It's... we... we use one of these when we... when we have to... go, when we go.
        Marco: There it is. See? I told you. It's a transporter. Right?
        Jake: No, I don't think that's what he's getting at. Ax, do you mean to tell me that we risked getting caught to take pictures of an Andalite...
        Ax: A receptacle, like a receptacle.
        Marco: A recept... Oh, it's a toilet?! And I touched it?
        Ax: Did you?
        Marco: Yes!
        Ax: I'm sorry.

    • NOTES (1)

      • This episode incorporates plots from four Animorphs books. In 14: The Unknown, the Animorphs tried to investigate alien wreakage supposedly held in Zone 91 (like Area 51), which turned out to be an Andalite toilet. In 28: The Experiment, the Animorphs investigate an animal testing facility being used by the Yeerks and Cassie comments about the inhumane ways similar facilities test cosmetics. The plot of 29: The Sickness, begins with Rachel making Jake ask Cassie to a school dance. And in 42: The Journey, someone manages to take a photo of the Animorphs demorphing, only to later have their camera stolen by Marco.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Cassie: Yeah. For a minute there I thought I was going to have to go to the dance with Curious George.
