    • Grandpa Max: How about pizza and games at pizza and play?
      (Ben and Gwen smile)

    • Enoch: I will not fail this time!
      Ben: Dream on!

    • Diamond Head: Kai?
      Gwen: Didn't she break your heart after we beat that werewolf in the desert?
      Diamond Head: Yeah, thanks for reminding me.

    • Ben: It's Kevin!
      Gwen: That is one nasty hall monitor.
      Ben: (looks at the Omnitrix) Good thing I have my all-access pass right here!

    • Four Arms: (to Vilgax) You messed with the wrong kid, squid face!

    • Grandpa Max: Hope you guys are hungry. I've cooked up one of my world-famous breakfasts.
      Ben: Uh-oh, plug your nose and kiss your taste buds goodbye.

    • Gwen: Ben, are you okay?
      Diamond Head: You're worried about me? Did you get hit in the head or something?

    • Ben: Whoa! "Sumo Slammer Space Wars." This game isn't supposed to be out for, like, a year. I probably should return these, shouldn't I?
      Grandpa Max: Nah. That truck's long gone. I say play away.
      Ben: (smiles) Could this day get any better?

    • Gwen: Want me to whip up some snacks for you?
      Ben: Sounds great, pukeface.
      Gwen: (laughs) Oh, Ben.

    • Ben: All I need to do is wake up, right? So, hit me.
      (Gwen stomps on Ben's foot)
      Ben: Ow! Didn't work!
      Gwen: Yeah, Grandpa said that it wouldn't, but you asked for it.

    • Ben: Let's see how tough they are picking on Heat Blast. (activates Omnitrix; transforms into Grey Matter)
      Gwen: Ugh, even in your dreams, you are such a dweeb.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • What happens to Ben is very similar to what happens to the character Roxas from the video game Kingdom Hearts II: Both are captured and put into a dream world, and someone enters to try to break them out, Grandpa Max and Gwen in Ben's case, and Axel in Kingdom Hearts II.

    • The Goonies
      The scene where the Tennysons find the computer in the dream world and must pass the test on it to continue bears similarity to the organ scene in the adventure film, The Goonies. In that a wrong answer collapses the floor underneath them and a right answer opens the door for the heroes to proceed all the while being chased by the villain.

    • Episode: Plot
      The plot is a spoof off of the Codename: Kids Next Door episode, "Operation: U.T.O.P.I.A." where both Ben and Number 1 are:
      virtually living their perfect days;
      not figuring it out but do thanks to family and friends;
      figuring out that it's virtual, take advantage of it and manage to wake up from; Ben 10, surgical operation, and; Kids Next Door, a test on the Happy Headband.

    • Pizza N. Play: Name and Appearance
      Pizza N. Play is a parody of the family pizza and game restaurant, Chuck E. Cheeses.
