Think Back: This is the third time in the series that Gwen uses a fire extinguisher.
Think Back: In "A Small Problem," Enoch's group were referred to as "The Organization," but when they show up here, Grey Matter instantly refers to them as "those Forever Knight guys." Not only that, Enoch's name was not mentioned in his debut, yet Grandpa Max referred to him by name.
Think Back: Enoch shows signs of knowing Grandpa Max, but in "A Small Problem", he showed no such recognition, even ordering his henchmen to "Find out everything there is to know" about Max and the kids.
Look Closely: When Ben falls off the ledge in the temple, when his shirt falls down to reveal his belly, and when Grandpa Max grabs his leg, his belly button appears and disappears every second or so.
Pay Attention: When Grandpa Max tossed the wrench, he complained he had asked for a 1/2 inch, not a metric wrench. That was an adjustable wrench.
Stinkfly says that he isn't used to flying with passengers, yet in "The Big Tick," he was seen carrying Grandpa Max and Gwen happily.
Somehow, the knights still got to the bottom of the temple, despite Ben, Grandpa Max, and Gwen just destroying the only way through.
Grandpa Max: The Mask of Ah Puch is the guide to the sword of Ekchuah. A Plumber's searched for it for decades without any luck.
Ben: Ekchuah? What kind of alien is that?
Grandpa Max: Not alien. Mayan. Ekchuah was the Mayan god of war. His sword was rumored to have leveled cities with just one swipe.
Ben: Ha. Sounds like just the kinda thing the world's most powerful 10-year-old boy should have.
Grandpa Max: This is no toy, Benjamin. Whoever controls the sword controls the destiny of mankind and I will not let it fall into the wrong hands!
Gwen: Have you ever seen Grandpa so serious?
Grey Matter: I've never seen anyone this serious.
Grandpa Max: (to Grey Matter) It's about time.
Gwen: (sniffing Grey Matter) Why do you smell like dog slobber?
Grandpa Max: (to Stinkfly) Ben, can't you go any faster?
Stinkfly: I'm sorry, Grandpa. I'm not used to flying with passengers!
Ben: (spits out leaves) I have got to work on emergency landings.
Ben: Uh Grandpa, what's with the fashion show?
Grandpa Max: Now there's always a secret entrance to these temples.
Grey Matter: (hanging over a paper shredder) No way I'm gonna wind up as alien coleslaw!
Ben: It's good to have you back, Grandpa.
Grandpa Max: It's good to be back, and I'm sorry. You know, I think it's time to put away the old Plumber suit.
Gwen: Because you've finally found the sword of Ekchuah?
Grandpa Max: That, and it's giving me a really uncomfortable rash.
Four Arms: Why does that thing look familiar?
Grandpa Max: It must be Ah Puch, the Mayan god of death and the underworld. He's the guardian of the sword of Ekchuah.
Gwen: Why can't these places ever be protected by, like, the guardian of cheerfulness? Is that too much to ask?
Four Arms: Grandpa, I think Gwen needs a second to catch her breath.
Grandpa Max: No can do. Enoch may already have the sword.
Four Arms: Ever since that alarm went off, that sword is all you think about!
Grandpa Max: You two have to keep your eyes on the prize and remember what's important here!
Four Arms: We do remember. Do you?
Ben: Remember when he used to make this stuff fun? I miss the old Grandpa.
Gwen: I'd eat a whole bowl of dung beetle stew if I thought it would bring him back.
(after Grandpa Max saved Ben from falling down the temple)
Grandpa Max: Whoa, that was close. Almost lost the mask.
Grandpa Max: (trying to fix the RV) This is metric. I said I need a 1/2 inch.
Gwen: Sorry, Grumpa.
Grandpa Max: This is a job for a Plumber. (puts the RV in auto-driver mode; goes into a room and closes the door)
Ben: Uh, Grandpa? Guess when you gotta go, you gotta go.
Enoch: I'd love to chat about old times, but I'm late for holding the world at my mercy. So, I'll be taking that mask now.
Grandpa Max: Over my dead body.
Enoch: Excellent suggestion.
Grandpa Max: Well, what do you think? Bet you never tasted anything like that before.
(Ben & Gwen are eating)
Ben: Mmm. What's the crunchy stuff?
Grandpa Max: Dung beetles.
(Ben & Gwen spit out the food)
Grandpa Max: What, too spicy? You'll get used to it.
Grandpa Max: (referring to the mask) There it is. Beautiful, isn't it?
Grey Matter: Eh, not exactly.
Although it is not shown for certain one way or another, it is possible that they may have killed the mace wielding Forever Knight. He fell off of a bridge into the middle of a river wearing a full suit of armor.
