    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (21)

      • Rock Hudson (Marie Currie's) date was actually gay, making one wonder just why "he knows how to treat a woman".

      • When the Board of Shadowy figures calls Scudworth, the pants-smith is there. When Scudworth starts to faint, the pants-smith is still there, standing behind Scudworth and beside the door. After a slightly closer camera angle, Scudworth falls over and the man has vanished.

      • The preview at the end of the episode contains nudity; Cleo's bottom is briefly flashed during the preview.

      • Goof: When the Head of the board of shadowy figures calls Scudworth, the fetus in a jar is back on Scudworth's desk, after being smashed.

      • Goof:When Abe wakes up, the fat Elvis is sitting behind him in class. After Abe screams, Sigmund Freud is sitting behind Abe.

      • When Scudworth and Mr. B. go on their Makeover! to the Hilarious Costume Shoppe, the sign on the door reads "Hunix Within". This could mean either "Hunks Within", being attractive males, or "Unicks Within", being castrated males. Either way, Scudworth looks happy.

      • After Scudworth throws the bottled baby fetus, it says 'Ma' after the bottle breaks.

      • Goof: Both the stair-device and the blanket featured in Joan's makeover scene are gone after the commercial break.

      • When Joan is under the blanket and coming down the stairs on the device, she appears to be really, really short. You can tell because Cleo walks next to 'Joan', Joan's legs have disappeared and she looks one third her actual size.

      • Right before Abe gives Joan her Makeover!, he is sitting on his couch. Abe's head is haloed by the sun in the painting behind him, giving the impression that Abe is an angel, or other religious figure.

      • Gandhi walks into the girl's locker room, looking for a prom date, while JFK's just using the toilet and yelling at the mirror. Why is there so little attention paid to the two men in the women's changing room?

      • Goof: When Scudworth freaks out, he throws a green trianguliar vial on the ground. The camera changes to Mr. B, then back to Scudworth. The glass from the vial has disappeared.

      • Scudworth owns an old-fashioned rotary phone.

      • Gandhi and Marie Curie are still on the dance squad, from Episode 3.

      • The Secret Board of Shadowy Figures finally finds out about Dr. Scudworth's "Cloney Island" plans, which have been around since the Election episode.

      • Joan's "thinking dock", two feet across from Abe's thinking dock, is back in this episode. It was inexplicibly absent in the "Litter Kills" episode.

      • Cleopatra's last name is "Smith." The original Cleopatra didn't have a last name which would be a bit of a problem in the modern world

      • Scudworth claims to have gotten the idea for Clone High after watching Jurassic Park 3. He obviously watched the original, but he thinks that JP3 is the one with the amusement park and the dinosaurs in a zoo-like environment.

      • Right after Cleo asks Abe in the car why Abe hasn't bothered to ask her to prom yet, he says "Joan, I'm on it." Cleo doesn't seem to mind being called Joan.

      • In response to the above goof, if Joan's a goth then she would (and has) an impeccably pale, pallid complexion. She probably wears makeup, just not blush, hence her not knowing what 'blush' is.

      • Joan claims to know nothing about makeup, but I don't buy this coming from a confessed "Goth Girl". She always always wears purplish lipstick (though a Goth Girl should probably wear black).

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Abe: I will invite you to prom, by saying the words 'will you go to the prom with me,' followed by your name. (breathes) Will you go to the prom with me...(words choke between Joan and Cleo, sounding like 'Jclea.')

      • Scudworth: Stamos! Damn him and his jet black hair and winning smile! Oh! I'm a failure...a failure! I'm so disorganized! I never call anyone back! YOU SHOULD SEE MY CAR IT'S A MESS! I'm a mess! I go to the submarine sandwich restaraunt and I leave my submarine sandwich restaraunt value card at home EVERY (bangs head on floor) TIME! Oh, I want a free sandwich...STAMOS!!!

      • (Abe, after Joan runs out)
        Abe: Wait, Joan, you forgot your sexy Vampire Teeth!"
        (clicks teeth)

      • Cleo: Can you pass me the blush?
        Joan: Your what?
        Cleo: The blush... It's makeup! You know, like what your mom throws at you when the vodka runs out!

      • Gandhi: I just want someone to dry hump, leave, and brag about... is that to much to ask?

      • Cleo: Are you thinking what I'm thinging?
        (Both simultaneously)
        Cleo: MAKEOVER!
        Joan: SUICIDE!

      • JFK: (crying) They, uh er, grow up so fast.

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (11)

      • She's All That

        Joan's dramatic descent down the staircase after Cleo gives her a makeover is a reference to the movie She's All That.

      • Gandhi: "You let the dogs out, J-Slice! Whazzap! [..] You can't touch this!
        Gandhi is using several out-of-date slogans and trends. Who Let the Dogs Out is a song from 2 years ago by the Baha Men. Whazzap?! is a Buddweiser commercial from 3 years ago. You Can't Touch This is a song from 13 years ago by MC Hammer. Gandhi is also emulating a move Trinity uses in the beginning of The Matrix, which was 4 years old.

      • Magazines
        During the episode, several people are reading magazines such as Kosmo, Med Journal, SciFi Gore, MZ, and Vanity. These are real magazines, such as Cosmo, The Medical Journal, Ms., and Vanity Fair. SciFi Gore is probaly Fangoria.

      • Abe: You know, Cleo, prom is an important time for all teens. For example, it's where we all lose our virginity.
        This is a reference to the movie American Pie. All four of the main characters vow to lose their virginity on prom night, and they all succeed.

      • John Stamos and Rebecca Romijn-Stamos
        John Stamos is a famous television actor, who beat Scudworth for Prom King in highschool. Rebecca, a supermodel and an actress, is mentioned by Scudworth, because at the time this episode aired she was currently married to John.

      • Fetal Horse: Helen of Troy, will you go to the prom with Nostradamus?
        Nostradamus' horse bursts from a Wooden Horse similar to the one used by the Greeks to invade the walls of Troy, where Helen of Troy (the real one, not the clone) resided.

      • Oszkár Asbóth: Marie Antoinette, will you go to the prom with me? (slice) Anne Boleyn?
        Marie Antoinette and Anne Boleyn were both historical female figures who died by decapitation. In 'Clone High' they (or rather, their clones) also died in this way, albeit by helicopter blades.

      • Sign: (sign with picture of Joan) I want you to be my prom date: Janeane Garafolesque, Good birthing hips, Shaved, Not religious
        "I want you", with Joan pointing forward, is reminiscent of a U.S. Army recruitment poster.
        "Janeane Garafolesque" obviously refers to Janeane Garofalo, though the name is slightly misspelled. Janeane is a standup comedian turned movie actress. Like Joan, Janeane is a beautiful woman (well, when she wants to be), but not many people seem to be able to see that. Janeane also has an acerbic wit and insecurity problems, and she's also a social (and anti-war) activist.
        "Good birthing hips": All of the women in Clone High have very wide hips. I think this says something about the creators. "Shaved": Apparently, French women don't shave their armpits, but obviously Joan does now that she's an American. "Not religious": The original Joan of Arc was very religious, but Joan seems mostly seems to be an athiest, apart from incidences with her dental retainer.

      • Gandhi: Aw, get off your high horse!
        Catherine the Great apparently had great love for horses.

      • Scudworth: I first got the idea for Cloney Island after seeing "Jurassic Park III".
        Jurassic Park was a trilogy of movies about cloning dinosaurs from recovered DNA to be used in a theme park. Dr. Scudworth must be a slow learner if it took him until the third movie to get his Cloney Island idea. He comments that the plan is as foolproof as the park in the movie itself. This is remiscent of his comment about watching the first 2/3rds "Behind the Music: MC Hammer" in the Election episode.

      • Nostradamus: I knew you were going to say that!
        Nostradamus' clone here always says he knew that people were going to say certain things but if he really knew that Helen of Troy was going to reject his invitation to the prom, why would he bother asking her? Nostradamus was a false prophet who wrote thousands of pages of vague predictions about the future of the civilization. But, taken with great mountains of salt, his vague and metaphorical language can be construed to mean practically anything.
