    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Captain Nemesis: (as he and Ben are about to begin a footrace) You don't stand a chance this time, Tennyson.
        Ben: I think Jetray's faster than anybody. (transforms into Rath)
        Rath: Jetray! Ah man, I mean Rath! Let me tell you something, Ultimatrix. Rath is sick of you not working right. It's not even funny anymore.

      • Ben: (to Overlord) How could you do this? You used to be a hero! I had your poster on my wall! Did you forget? This isn't about fame, it's about helping people!
        Julie: You are talking about him, right?

      • (Ben, Gwen and Kevin are at the opening of a book signing)
        Ben: Ha, now the truth comes out. Super cool, muscle car driving, ultimate bad boy, Kevin Levin likes girly movies!
        Kevin: (trying to change subject) You're telling me Jennifer Nocturne comes to town and you're not even curious?
        Ben: (to Gwen) One blood-sucking soap opera and his little heart goes pitty-pat.
        (Gwen giggles but notices Kevin frowning at her)
        Kevin: (smug) And who was sitting next to me, during that blood-sucking soap opera and two sequels?
        Gwen: Vampires are romantic...
        (Kevin looks at poster of Jennifer Nocturne)
        Kevin: And hot... (pinched by Gwen) OW!
        Gwen: You were saying?
        Kevin: I admire her skill as an actress.
        (Gwen gives him a look obviously not believing him)

      • Julie: Those pictures of the two of you in her hot tub?
        Ben: That was fun, great view! You know if you squint just, the Eiffel Tower kinda lines up with the, Arc De Triumph.
        Julie: (unamused) I don't want to hear anymore of this.
        Kevin: I do... (gets elbowed by Gwen) OW!

      • Captain Nemesis: Captain Nemesis is dead. From now on, call me "Overlord"!
        Goop: How about we call you a good therapist?

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (6)

      • Kevin: There's nothing on anyway, except news about "Bennifer".

        "Bennifer" was the couple name tabloids and fans gave to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez when they started dating back in 2002. The creation of such nicknames has continued with the likes of TomKat (Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes) and Brangelina (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie).

      • Captain Nemesis: Ten Bennyson, etc.

        This is a reference to Bewitched, on which Endora called Darrin everything but his real name.

      • Vampire Summer 4

        This is a reference to the fourth and final book in the Twilight saga yet to be made in a movie - "Breaking Dawn."

      • Captain Nemesis

        He seems to be a Tony Stark-esque version in Ben 10. He wears an armor that gives him super speed, flight, and has lasers.

      • Computron: You knocked my block off...

        This is a reference to the Rock 'Em, Sock 'Em Robots game, wherein two players control punching robots, and the objective is to "knock the block off" of the opposing player's robot.

      • The "Darkfall" films are a parody of the Twilight film series.
