  • I thought that this episode was well made!

    10
    Everything in this episode was put together smoothly. It's hard to add all the different and complex devices in one episode, but this episode succeeded in doing it! I love all the little details put in to this episode. The animation was excellent, the soundtrack fit in, the two people feeding the birds was a great comedy, to even the smallest things, like when Kevin called Ben insensitive after all they've been through in the car. Yuri Lowrenthal is amazing in portraying different aspects of Ben, being compassionate, arrogant, and energetic. Kevin and Gwen were also well portrayed almost like if they were real. I feel sorry for Julie. All she needed was some support from Ben, but he let her down. *Kevin's facepalm* Lastly, whenever I see Rath in an episode, I just know that the episode will be awesome! Overall, I loved this episode, and I can't think of anything negative about it!moreless

    This has got to be the best episode so far. First of all, I thought it was amusing when Ben broke the 4th wall by saying live-action is better than cartoons, as well as the whole "Kirby" thing. :D Also, the struggling relationship between Ben and Julie was alot like what was going on between Turk and Carla from the Scrubs episode "My Life in Four Cameras". If you don't believe me, watch the episode on Youtube. In conclusion, this episode contained a ton of hi-larious moments, except for that one part about Ben talking to Kevin about expressing there feelings. That bit was sort of disturbing.moreless

    • Girl: I'm your biggest fan!
      Immature Ben: Well, that makes two of us.

    • Reporter: Ben, any comment on Will Harangue's editorials? He says you're a menace!

    • Gwen: Where have you been? Julie's match is about to start.

      Ben: What?
      Kevin: Okay, the dumbest.

      Ben: Any suggestions?
      Kevin: Yeah, there's a plan: Ask me for girlfriend advice.

    • Kevin: If I weren't running for my life, I'd totally demand an explanation.(indicating the 3 Bens)

    • Ben: Go Julie! WHOO HOO! Julie Yamamoto is number 1, baby! HOO! HOO! HOO!
      (Gwen pulls Ben down)
      Ben: What?
      Gwen: You're embarrassing her!
      Ben: She loves the attention.
      Gwen: No, she doesn't.
      (Julie looks down)
      Ben: My bad...
      (Gwen looks back at the match)
      Ben: Hey, other girl! You're a terrible tennis player and my girlfriend's gonna kick your butt!
      (Julie looks shocked and the other girl looks mad)

    • Forever Knight #1: (aiming tank cannon at museum door) This will rip that door open like it was made of tissue paper.
      Rath: (rips open the top of the tank) Let me tell you something, Forever Knights! Nobody's ripping open nothing except Rath!

    • (Forever Knight shoots at Rath)
      Rath: That's your first mistake! When you shoot Rath, it just makes Rath mad! (growls)

    • Ben Tennyson: Nice game, Julie.
      Julie Yamamoto: How would you know? (walks away)
      Ben Tennyson: What? What did I say?
      Gwen Tennyson: It's what you did, Ben. You were late, and when you finally showed up, you made a big entrance and completely blew her concentration.
      Ben Tennyson: I can't help if I'm famous, right? (waves to the crowd; Gwen glares at him) ...I'm sorry. It won't happen again.
      Gwen Tennyson: It better not. The finals are in 3 hours. That should be enough time for you to figure out how to make this up to her.
      Ben Tennyson: (to Kevin) Any suggestions?
      Kevin Levin: Yeah, there's a plan - ask me for girlfriend advice.

    • Gwen Tennyson: What are you doing?
      Ben Tennyson: I was thinking that while we were waiting around, I could go and catch "Sumo Slammers: The Movie."
      Kevin Levin: You're either the bravest man alive or the dumbest.
      Ben Tennyson: What?
      Kevin Levin: Okay, the dumbest.

    • Ben Tennyson: (about the Sumo Slammers movie) It's opening today, and there's a 2:00 PM show just a few blocks--
      Gwen Tennyson: No.
      Ben Tennyson: But it's "Sumo Slammers" - in 3D!
      Gwen Tennyson: Ben.
      Ben Tennyson: It's their first live-action movie. Everybody knows live-action is better than cartoons.

    • Gwen Tennyson: Where have you been? Julie's match is about to start.
      Ben Tennyson #3: I'm here. Why don't you put a sock in it?
      Gwen Tennyson: Whoa. What's with all the attitude?
      Ben Tennyson #3: I'm Ben classic. Miss me?

    • Ben Tennyson #2: Hello, Kevin. Hope I didn't keep you waiting.
      Kevin Levin: Didn't I just see you with Gwen?
      Ben Tennyson #2: I guess so. Didn't you want to investigate the Forever Knights robbery?
      Kevin Levin: Yeah, but Gwen's pretty mad at you. You better--
      Ben Tennyson #2: Gwen might seem inflexible, but her heart is as big as all outdoors. She'll forgive my transgression.
      Kevin Levin: Gwen will forgive you? Gwen Tennyson?

    • Ben Tennyson #3: Go, Julie! Whoo-hoo! Julie Yamamoto is number 1, baby! (cheers)
      (Gwen pulls him back to his seat)
      Ben Tennyson #3: What?
      Gwen Tennyson: You're embarrassing her.
      Ben Tennyson #3: She loves the attention.
      Gwen Tennyson: No, she doesn't.
      Ben Tennyson #3: My bad. (stands up again and shouts at Julie's tennis opponent) Hey, other girl! You're a terrible tennis player, and my girlfriend's gonna kick your butt!

    • Tennis Referee: What's happening up there?
      Julie Yamamoto: Uh, that's my... boyfriend.
      Tennis Referee: (monotonously) You must be very proud.

    • News Reporter: Ben, any comment on Will Harangue's editorials? He says you're a menace.
      Ben Tennyson #3: Yeah? I say TV is a dead medium. Sorry, man. You know it's true.

    • Girl: I'm your biggest fan!
      Ben Tennyson #3: Well, that makes two of us.
      Girl: Is that really your girlfriend on the court?
      Ben Tennyson #3: Hey, things cha-- (Gwen hits him with a magic beam) Ow! What? I'm just having fun.

    • Ben Tennyson #2: I'm just thinking about how long we've known each other.
      Kevin Levin: Why?
      Ben Tennyson #2: Because I don't think we've ever honestly talked about our feelings, about how we're friends now, but we were enemies - which is understandable, what with you being criminally insane back then and all.
      Kevin Levin: I talk about my feelings all the time, like when I'm mad or hungry or when I have to go to the bathroom.

    • Kevin Levin: Ben! You've always been kinda girly, but today...
      Ben Tennyson #2: Yeah?
      Kevin Levin: You're creeping me out!
      Ben Tennyson #2: I understand. I'm truly sorry.
      Kevin Levin: Stop understanding, stop apologizing, stop talking about your feelings. I just want to find some Forever Knights and pound them.
      Ben Tennyson #2: Hmm, interesting.
      Kevin Levin: Cut that out!

    • (Ben transforms into Humungousaur)
      Humungousaur: (singing) Humungousaur!
      Kevin Levin: Never do that again.
      Humungousaur: Just trying it out.

    • King Urien: Who dares intrude?
      Forever Knight #1: It's Ben Tennyson, the alien changeling, and his lackey.
      Kevin Levin: Oh, now I'm a lackey?
      Humungousaur: I'm sure he didn't mean to hurt your feelings. (to Forever Knights) You didn't mean to hurt his feelings, right?
      King Urien: Destroy them!

    • Kevin Levin: Ben, do something!
      Humungousaur: Why me?
      Kevin Levin: Because you're a giant, indestructible dinosaur?
      Humungousaur: Okay, but shouldn't we work towards a consensus that let's us both feel invested in the plan?

    • King Urien: It's mine! After all this time, it's mine!
      Ben Tennyson #2: Excuse me, sir, but the signs clearly say "Do Not Touch the Exhibits."
      Kevin Levin: Signs? That's the best you got? Where's the usual smack talk? First, we crack on the back guys and then we trash them. It's what we do!
      Ben Tennyson #2: That's bad sportsmanship. We should respect the ego space of our opponents. Villains are people, too.

    • King Urien: This is Toltech battle armor, a little parting gift left with the Aztecs by a race of aliens.
      Ben Tennyson #2: There were aliens in Central America?
      Kevin Levin: They came for the scenery, but they stayed for the chocolate.

    • Kevin Levin: (sees 3 Bens standing next to each other) If I wasn't running for my life, I'd totally demand an explanation!
      Ben Tennyson #1: "Sumo Slammers" opened today, and...
      Ben Tennyson #2: We were trying to be sensitive to everyone's needs.
      Ben Tennyson #3: What's it to you?!
      Kevin Levin: Again, running for my life!

    • Rath: (To two old men after throwing a tank into a pond) What?! It was already busted!

    • Forever Knight: This will rip that door open like it was made of tissue paper!
      Rath: (After ripping off the roof of the Forever Knights' tank) Let me tell you something, Forever Knights, nobody's rippin' off nothing except Rath.

    • Ben Tennyson: (After obliterating the Forever Knight's armor into pieces) Rest in pieces!

    • Ben Tennyson: There were aliens in Central America?
      Kevin Levin: They came for the scenery, but they stayed for the chocolate.

  • NOTES (2)

    • Ben's statement that "Everyone knows live-action is better then cartoons." is a sly reference to the fact that the live-action Ben 10 movies weren't as well-received as the animated series.

    • In retrospect, the sensitive Ben should have been with Julie while the hardcore Ben should have been with Kevin. If this was the case, the episode could have gone off without a hitch.

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Episode: Plot

      The plot of this episode is similar to that of Multiplicity, about a man who has himself cloned with disastrous results.

    • Fastball Special
      The way in which Humungousaur throws Kevin at the heavily armored Forever Knight is a technique known in the comic book realm as the fastball special. Colossus and Wolverine, two superheroes from "Marvel" comics, were the first to use this move.

    • The subplot about Ben and Julie going through relationship issues is similar to Turk and Carla's relationship issues in the Scrubs episode "My Life in Four Cameras".
