    This show is hilarious. Ghandi is diagnosed with ADD, how it took so long for the diagnosis to be handed down, I'll never know but they managed. There is a song announcing Ghandi has ADD sung by Paul Revere.. More than likely a underhanded reference the band Paul Revere and the Raiders. Then Ghandi is treated like a leper. It's wierd that no one else has been diagnosed ADD since it seemed like every kid in my grade was on Ritalin.



    Abe once again has to make a choice between a friend and being cool, since he can get Cleo to like him by hosting the kissing booth with her, which Joan correctling calls it "herpes awareness". Abe makes the wrong choice at first, but as always makes the right choice in the end. A predictable turn of events but the jokes along the way are quite humorous.



    Joan hears "God". We meet Jesus, Who nails himself to a piece of wood. Joan finds out she's just hearing Christian Radio.



    The worst part of this episode is Tom Green in my opinion. I'm just not a Tom Green fan but I have to admit in the small dose of this episode it is kind of humorous.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (28)

    • This episode is one of two that doesn't have an appearance by the dolphin.

    • It seems rather odd that Mr Butlertron would be able to high-five the Rat Pack. Sammy Davis Jr. died in 1990, Dean Martin died in 1995, and Frank Sinatra died in 1998. Since we eventually learn that the clones were created in 1987, the only Rat Pack member who could legitimately have been dug up by the secret government employees is Peter Lawford, who died in 1984.

    • During the PTA meeting, JFK's dominant gay foster dad's cigar is magically floating in the air (rather than the butt being inside his mouth).

    • For some reason, Fat Elvis is at the PTA meeting, even though he's seen to be a student in the first episode.

    • Mr. Buttlertron is the vice-principal of Clone High.

    • At the kissing both, Gandhi gives Cleo a $5 bill. You can tell it's a fiver because Abe starts talking to Lincoln. Afterwards, Gandhi tells Abe that he's only going to pay $4. If you include the money Gahndi already gave, Gandhi ends up paying $9.

    • When JFK is sobbing to Scudworth, the clock on the back wall reads 2.35. It usually reads 2.25, and the rest of the episode also has the clock at 2.25.

    • Goof:When Abe is driving in his car, Abe's "Best-Dudes 4-Ever" locket shows a picture of Abe & Gandhi fishing on a boat, with a fish stuck in Gandhi's nose. After a flashback-montage, the picture in the locket changes to a picture of a whale, with Abe and Gandhi nowhere in sight. The other half of the locket also changes from blue to pink.

    • When Paul Revere and the rest of the students are singing and gossiping about Gandhi's A.D.D., the hallway and lockers are unusal colors. After the song is done, the color scheme returns to normal.

    • Mr. Buttlertron realizes that Gandhi has A.D.D. and Scudworth does not. Scudworth is a doctor, so he should be able to recognize symptoms of common mental disorders. It appears that Mr. Buttlertron has medical knowledge installed in his database and knows more about psychiatric diagnosises than Scudworth, who is a doctor.

    • Goof: The rug outside Scudworth's office that welcomes clones is missing in this episode.

    • In line-up for Cleo's kissing booth, there is both a female nun and Gandhi's foster father. You can tell it's Gandhi's step-dad because he is seen earlier at Gandhi's bar-mitz-vah.

    • MNCIPATE: The license plate on Abe's car.

      The US President Abraham Lincoln used the Emancipation Proclamation to help set slaves free from slavery. The clone Abe must also believe in MNCIPATE-ing.

    • The title of Tom Green's book is, "Tom Green's Big Book Of A.D.D." He is also wearing the same shirt on the book.

    • At the awareness fair, there is a stand with a sign that reads ANUREXIA BULIMIA PIEEAT and a Motion Sickness Aware-o-Whirl.

    • When Joan rises up on stage, there is a sign reading: APPEARING TODAY : Beethoven. Appropriately enough, a young man sits on the stage with a small keyboard pressing against his ear.

    • Apparently, the only people who showed up to Gandhi's Bar Mitzvah were his foster parents and Abe.

    • Gene Kelly is taking dancing lessons from Marrie Curry. I guess the clone Gene Kelly isn't as up to scratch as the original Gene Kelly of the 50s (who starred in Singing In The Rain).

    • The Dog President from the previous episode makes a return appearance.

    • This is the first episode where Julius Caeser actually speaks.

    • During the scene where they're writing the test, apparantly, the entire right side of the class (except Paul Revere) is left handed.

    • Anyone notice how wierd that the "A.D.D. Education Institue" was a 2 story building, yet when Tom Green Jumps out, it seems like he jumped out of a 7+ story building?

    • Goof: When Abe is thinking about all the good times he and Gandhi had together, it shows them when they were babies in the bathtub. In the intro, it shows that they weren't released until they were older.

    • Goof: When Abe goes to visit Gandhi in the mental institute, he seems to walk there. However,when he leaves, Abe goes in a car.

    • When Ghandi is in principal Scudworths office you can see Scudworth behind Ghandi wearing Mr B's sweater-vest, which in this one clip seems to be full sleeved.

    • Scudworth appears at the PTA in this episode, but he is unaware of it's existence in 'Raisin' the Stakes'

    • Goof: Joan picks up an FM radio station on her bent retainer. Though it is technically possible for people to pick up radio signals on their dental devices using the theory of a crystal radio set, it's only possible with AM radio.

    • In one of Abe's flashbacks, he thinks of when both him and Ghandi were babies in the bathtub. Ghandi has his goatee and earring as a baby, and Abe has a beard. And in a a huge bathtub, Abe and Ghandi would of had drowned and died.

  • QUOTES (29)

  • NOTES (2)

    • Tom Green has a line where he acts like an Albatross and jumps out of a building. This was originally not in the script but Tom Green, one day during the recording of his lines, said "This is a cartoon right? So I can be anything? Even an... ALBATROSS?!" and thus the line and scene was born.

    • This episode originally aired in the U.S. on Feb 3, 2003.

  • ALLUSIONS (6)

    • Rat Pack
      The suited gentlemen who high-five Mr Butlertron are the Rat Pack - a group of popular music icons from the 50s & 60s who appeared on stage and in movies together. In order, Mr Butlertron high-fives Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.

    • Solid Gandhi Dancers:
      This is either a parody or a tribute to the Solid Gold dancers. Solid Gold is a weekly television show from the '80's, that played segments of the Top 10 charting songs, and featured the dancers.

    • Y'all Ready for God?:
      This sounds like a Christian-Rock take on a song called Y'all Ready for This? by Jock Jams. The two songs have the same dance beat, rhythm, the word-layout is identical, and the cheap sounding musical instruments are the same.

    • The Daily Show- This Week in God
      When Mr. Belvetron is imputing Gandhi's symptoms into his computer, he makes beeping noises that sound very similiar to the ones from 'This Week In God''s God machine.

    • Joan: Finally! The voices...
      The real Joan of Arc supposedly heard voices from God.

    • Jesus

      When Joan is talking to Jesus, he tells her, "God has a plan for all of us. An extremely painful plan." In the Christian Faith God has Jesus die for mankind by being nailed to a cross.
