Outside Knowledge: Had the game not been interrupted by the robots, JT would not have played, as he was in the Rustbucket. Little League rules require every member of the team to play in every game.
Pay Attention/Listen Carefully: As Ben (posing as Cash) gets his first hit, Gwen screams rather loudly, "Go Ben!" despite Ben posing as Cash.
Outside Knowledge: At one point, the Squires coach says, "Nine innings and our plan shall be complete." However, Little League plays six innings.
Pay Attention: The President didn't notice that the face of Cash (the bully) was completely different than the face of his real savior (Ben), despite them having a totally different facial appearance.
Four Arms: Welcome to the seventh inning stretch.
Enoch: Our entire operation is ruined! (steps on a robot part) By the crest of the Forever Knights, the Tennysons shall pay for this with their very lives!
Gwen: Nice music pocket. Where'd you get it?
Ben: Let's just say a little friend helped me.
Gwen: You used Grey Matter?! That's cheating!
JT: (about Ben) Yeah, this pee-wee's in his own world.
Cash: Look who's hanging around, JT... "Wedgie Tennyson."
Cash: Oh, I know some things about courage.
(XLR8 speeds up to JT and Cash and hangs them up on the Little League Museum board in a flash)
Cash: Not again.
XLR8: That doesn't mean I'm not a sore loser.
Ben: How did you two j... guys make the team anyway?
Cash: Talent. 100% pure talent!
JT: And four other guys got chicken pox.
Grey Matter: (lands in a tub of jelly beans) Talk about a sweet landing!
(when Four Arms smashes through the wall and lands on the fake President)
Four Arms: Please tell me that that was the fake President.
Grandpa Max: Hey, Ben, check it out. Your hometown baseball team, The Cannons, are in the finals of the Little League World Series.
Ben: No way! I was supposed to be on that team.
Gwen: Yeah, if only you could hit or throw or run...
Ben: Think we could go, Grandpa?
Gwen: ...Or catch or slide. Stop me if I'm leaving anything out.
Grandpa Max: They're getting away with the Liberty Bell!
Ben: Not if XLR8 has anything to say about it. (transforms into Grey Matter)
Gwen: Evidently, he doesn't.
Grey Matter: Oh, man!
Ben: If I just went hero, I'd win every one of those stupid games.
Gwen: Sure, use the most powerful device in the universe to cheat at Whack-a-Mole. Real nice.
When Gwen is looking up the Squires for the first time in the episode, the title at the top of the screen, which should say "Little League Baseball," is misspelled. Instead, it says, "Little Legague Baseball."
This is the only time in the series that we have seen Ben in a baseball uniform.
The president depicted in this episode is fictional. It is not George W. Bush.
With the help of Grey Matter, Ben won a pocket music player.
This is the sixth time that Ben has become the same alien twice in the same episode, and the second time he has become XLR8 twice in the same episode, the first being "Under Wraps."
Enoch and The Forever Knights were really the ones behind the robot attack. They appear at the end of this episode.
Cartoon Network (UK) airdate: April 4th, 2007.
This is the second time XLR8 hangs the two bullies, Cash and J.T., up by their briefs, the first time being "And Then There Were 10."
Enoch is now the third villain (after Vilgax and Dr. Animo) to have appeared in all three seasons.
Main Villain Bio: The Squires - Posing as a Little League Baseball team and its coach, the Squires were revealed to in fact be dangerous, super-powered robots. They were manufactured by Enoch as part of a plot to capture the President and replace him with a robotic double under their control. They knew that he would attend the finals for the Little League Baseball Season and would have the team win at any cost to ensure they'd be there to get him. The Squire robots are incredibly strong, able to bend metal bats with their bare hands and throw baseballs with enough force to punch a hole clear through solid steel, and the coach robot has laser cannons built into its shoulders. In addition, the Squires are able to change their shape and appearance to match that of anyone whose appearance they've been allowed to scan.
Main Villain(s): Enoch/Forever Knights & The Squires.
During the first game, XLR8 was moving so fast he was invisible and that everything else appeared to be frozen, which means he would be moving around light speed. So, apparently, XLR8 can enter the mythical "speed zone," an entirely different temporal dimension where the rest of the world stops and reality takes on different rules.
As with every episode to feature Enoch thus far, Grey Matter appears as the first transformation of the episode.
Enoch of the Forever Knights returns in this episode. It appears he has survived the cave-in that occurred in the episode, "Ultimate Weapon."
A squire is a knight in training, which makes sense since the team was made by the Forever Knights.
Because Ben took Cash's place in the game, Cash got to speak for the President, when it was Ben who actually saved his life.
The bullies from "And Then There Were 10" return and we learn that the one with glasses is named JT and the one with the cash register shirt is named Cash.
The opening credits and episode name were shown before the theme song.
Main Transformation(s): Diamond Head.
Alien Form(s) Used:
1) Grey Matter.
2) XLR8 (2 times).
3) Diamond Head.
4) Four Arms.
Ben: (in robotic tone) Destroy all humans.
When the Squires headquarters explodes and Ben comes out, he says in a robotic tone "Destroy all humans," like in the video game of the same name. Richard Steven Horvitz, who voices Grey Matter, also voices Orthopox 13 from the game.
XLR8: Baseball Prank
XLR8's repositioning of a baseball to hit a player he didn't like is similar to Adam Sandler did in the movie Click.
The president in this episode looks like Harry S. Truman, the 33rd president of the United States.
Episode Title: The Unnaturals
The episode title is a play on the 1952 baseball novel (and later, 1984 film) The Natural.
