    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • When Grandpa Max joins the group of 4 other adbuctees, he declares himself as Seedling 3, then another man arrives declaring himself Seedling 2, making a total of 6 people. However, Max then reports in that 5 out of 91 Seedlings are present. It cannot be assumed that Max is the leader and therefore does not count, because he stated that he was a Seedling, and he's not the lowest or highest number, taking the numbers as ranking. The 6 people can easily be counted moments later.

      • In this episode, Max said he knew Kevin's father. It is revealed Kevin's father's name is Devin Levin.

      • Kevin: We're not gonna just stand here and let the brussel sprout that walks like a man nuke us, are we?

      • Kevin: Come on. We'll follow in my car.
        Ben: Forget the car. I've got a better idea. (selects Way Big, but becomes Humongousaur)
        Humongousaur: Way Big... Aw, man! Humongousaur. I wonder if the Omnitrix is still under warranty.

      • Gwen: Having fun?
        Kevin: Pros of camp-outs: fresh air, barbecue burgers. Cons of camp-outs: your Grandpa Max's old Plumbers stories that we've heard ten times before.
