Heat Jaws / Man #1
Diamond Matter / Man #2
Pay Attention: When Heat Jaws turns Grandpa Max back to normal, the faceplate of the Omnitrix is inside Animo's mutant ray. But after the transformation, it mysteriously changes to Gwen holding it.
Look Closely: When the faceplate falls off the Omnitrix, one of the "gems" is clear, but later on it turns back to being green.
Think Back: As it stands for Season 2. The only true appearance of Heat Blast was in "Big Tick". Even then he had no dialogue. Every other time it was either Gwen, Kevin, or a hybrid of Heat Blast and Ripjaws. Therefore we can say that Heat Blast only appeared once in season 2.
Goof: At the end of the episode, Ben said he wanted to change into ''XLRFreak,'' meaning that Ghostfreak is still on the Omnitrix, but Ghostfreak was already destroyed in "Ghostfreaked Out."
Look Closely: When the Tennysons enter the observatory, Animo's frog leaps directly onto their boat, smashing it and sending them flying in all directions. When they get up, they are somehow closely grouped on the same upper ledge.
(Ben becomes Heat Jaws)
Heat Jaws: Heat Blast and Ripjaws. Not the best combo.
Dr. Animo: (about Heat Jaws) What do we have here? A walking fish fry!
Grandpa Max: (after returning to normal) Why do I have this strange craving for rotten eggs and sugar water?
Gwen: I feel like I'm watching a rerun.
Dr. Animo: (on television, being put into a police car) You have not seen the last of me!
Gwen: (switches off TV) Yeah, I wish!
Ben: (about the Heat Blast bat) Whoa! It's Heat Blast gone batty!
Heat Jaws: Heat Blast and Ripjaws? (sighs) Not the best combination.
Diamond Matter: Could this get any worse?
(the Heat Blast bat approaches)
Diamond Matter: I had to ask!
Ben: Okay, Dr. Freakimo, party's over!
(Ben turns around and sees Dr. Animo)
Ben: Dr. Animo. How did---
Dr. Animo: I find you? Wasn't difficult to track your alien exploits, when you insist on helping people all the time! You thought you were such a big-shot, after stopping all my mutated creations! But they were only the beginning. I will not be denied my place in history!
(Baby alligators run out of the water and into some grass)
Ben: What are they running from? They're alligators.
(Diamond Matter struggles with cutting through the trees)
Diamond Matter: I wish Diamond Matter was more of a tough guy!
(Gwen, Ben, & Grandpa Max are looking for Dr. Animo)
Gwen: We've been at this for hours.
Grandpa Max: We have to keep looking. If the "good doctor" can figure out how to tap into the watch's DNA, who knows what could happen.
(Ben and Gwen get down from the machine)
Gwen: Oh, Ben, I almost forgot. (turns to Ben) Um, (shouting) I told you so!
Grandpa Max: Looks like an old observatory.
Ben: What's an observatory doing in the middle of a swamp?
Gwen: Without the lights from the city, the stars are brighter and can be seen more clearly.
Ben: Oh, thank you, Miss Know-it-all. Bet you're just dying to tell me how I screwed up.
Gwen: Not at all. This is the most fun I've had all summer.
(Ben transforms into Diamond Matter)
Diamond Matter: Oh, man! Diamond Head and Grey Matter. I'm a razor-sharp hood ornament!
(as Dr. Animo's "Heat Blast" creature attacks)
Gwen: Gee, do you think Animo has figured out the power in that piece of the watch?
Ben: That is definitely an "I told you so."
Ben: I saw that! Go ahead, say it. You know you want to.
Gwen: Say what?
Ben: You know, the big "I told you so" speech about messing around with the Omnitrix and how you were right all along and if I'd listened to you, we wouldn't be in the trouble that we are in right now!
Gwen: I didn't say a word.
Ben: Yeah, but you're thinking about it. Admit it. There's no way I am waiting. Just go ahead and say it now and get it over with.
Gwen: I don't know what you're talking about, Benjamin.
Ben: Grandpa, Gwen won't say "I told you so!"
(Ben transforms into Stink Arms)
Grandpa Max: Ben, you're--
Gwen: Stink Arms?
Stink Arms: Four Arms and Stinkfly's body? Must be another new alien. Now I can fly and kick butt at the same time. Cool!
(Dr. Animo's giant frog attacks him; Stink Arms attempts to carry it)
Stink Arms: You--You gained weight since last time, or I'm not as strong as I used to be. Aah! (gets crushed by the giant frog)
(as some alligator eggs are about to hatch)
Grandpa Max: You know, I think you kids are gonna enjoy this. It is a rare event.
Gwen: You mean like Ben changing his underwear?
Ben: (about the Omnitrix) There, good as new.
Gwen: What's good as new?
Ben: I wish I could say your face, but it's the same old one.
Gwen: I think the Florida heat has fried your brain!
Ben: (outside the RV; about the Omnitrix) Oh, man! I am gonna get so busted if anybody sees this.
Grandpa Max: Ben?
Gwen: What was that?
Ben: (puts his hands behind his back) What was what?
Grandpa Max: What was that noise?
Ben: Uh, lightning?
Gwen: There's not a cloud in the sky.
Ben: Uh, lightning got rid of them?
Gwen: What are you doing?
Ben: Who knows how many more alien hero dudes are inside this thing? I just have to figure out how it works.
Gwen: You shouldn't mess around with that thing, Ben. You're just asking for trouble.
Ben: Just chill out. I know what I'm doing.
Gwen: That'd be a first.
(Heat Jaws gets flung around by the mutant toad)
Heat Jaws: I don't like this ride.
While wearing his new Transmodulator, Animo's posture and movement resembles a gorilla (which could possibly be a foreshadowing of his future self's appearance in "Ben 10,000").
It is revealed that the Omnitrix is DNA-based technology.
Ben's transformation into Diamond Matter (Diamond Head / Grey Matter hybrid) was the 100th transformation in the series.
Cartoon Network (UK) airdate: Saturday, August 19th, 2006.
1) Ben constantly requesting Gwen to tell him her famous "I told you so" speech for messing around with the Omnitrix - to no avail.
2) Ben tries to transform into a super alien, but ends up as an alien combo instead. (ex. Diamond Matter)
Just like in the previous episode, "Washington, B.C.," the name of Dr. Animo's Mutant Ray is the "Transmodulator."
Alien Form(s) Used:
1) Stink Arms (Stinkfly / Four Arms hybrid).
2) Diamond Matter (Diamond Head / Grey Matter hybrid).
3) Heat Jaws (Heat Blast / Ripjaws hybrid).
This is the first episode to have aired in the UK before the US.
This episode premiered on a special day and time: Friday, August 25th, 2006 at 7:00 PM EST/PST.
Main Villain: Dr. Animo
This episode marks the return of Dr. Animo and his mutant frog from the episode, "Washington B.C."
Alien Forms: Fusion
Ben's two alien forms fusing to become one is just like Jaden's basic Elemetal Heroes fusing to be a fusion Elemetal Hero from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX.
Dr. Animo: Professor Chang
Dr. Animo's observatory lair was remarkably similar to Professor Chang's in the Teen Titans episode "X." The Transmodulator ray was like his disintegration cannon, and when Gwen was running from his blasts, it even looked like a scene from "X" when Robin was running from the disintegration ray's blasts.
The gatorfest is held annually in Anahuac, Texas, the state's "Alligator Capital".
Dr. Animo: The next evolution will be televised!
This is a reference to the Gil Scott-Heron poem and song, "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised."
