    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • In M.A.T.A.D.O.R. when the team was in the ship in some part of that moment we see that a scene repeat itself. Because of that the Numbuh 4 dummy's hand falls of two times.

    • QUOTES (13)

      • Numbuh 5: That was nuts.
        Heinrich: Oh, and what fun is nuts without chocolate?

      • Numbuh 5: Oh, Hiney. Listen, why don't you turn yourself in to the Kids Next Door. Maybe, our scientists can cure you.
        Heinrich: Maybe. Maybe not.

      • Numbuh 5: Heinrich! Let him go.
        Heinrich: Gladly. (puts down Numbuh 1) It is you I want.
        Numbuh 5: Heinrich, what happened to you? You've become a monster.
        Heinrich: Oh, you noticed. (angrily) Well, it's all your fault!(showing a flashback from Operation: R.A.B.B.I.T.) Because you showed up in the jungle's volcano and insisted in thwarting in making chocolate bunnies out of real bunnies, I fell into the choco-lava and fused with it.

      • Numbuh 5: (into a radio) This is Numbuh 5, requesting backup. Repeat . . . . (the radio is knocked from her hand)
        Soccer Mom: No talking during practice! If you don't want to be the net, you can be the ball like your stupid friend!
        (pan to Numbuh 1, trapped in the dirt)
        Numbuh 1: I don't know what's worse being kicked in the face, or the humiliation.

      • Numbuh 2:(when their ship gets disabled by the soccer bals)Butter up, guys, cause we're TOAST!!!

      • Mr. Beetles: Son? Where are we? And why are you wearing girl's clothes?
        Numbuh 4: It's a matador's costume, dad! We're at the bully fights... and you're the bull!

      • Numbuh 4: Whatever you say.... Ernie.
        Ernest: THAT'S ERNEST!

      • Numbuh 1: I don't know what's worse... Getting kicked in the face... Or the humiliation...

      • Numbuh 4: (Referring to Numbuh 1's head disguised as a soccer ball) Hey, somebody left a soccer ball. It's Beatles in the clear. It's Beatles for the goal. He shoots...
        Numbuh 1: OW!

      • Numbuh 3: EEEK! Numbuh 4's a dummy!
        Numbuh 5: Tell me about it...

      • Numbuh 5: As Numbuh 2 would say, you can't hurt anyone any s'more!

      • (Numbuh 5 visits Heinrich in prison)
        Heinrich: Abigail... Not content with mere victory, are we? You're just here to rub-en mein face in it!
        Numbuh 5: I just thought I'd bring you a peace offering... (Pushes a bag through the glass) Call me when you're less bitter and more sweet.

      • Numbuh 5: It's a lot of work, but MARShmalows always taste better fresh!

    • NOTES (26)

    • ALLUSIONS (6)

      • Henrich: Powers

        Henrich's abilities of turning people to chocolate and making a chocolate bridge to travel is exactly like Iceman's abilites to freeze and make Ice bridges.

      • In C.H.O.C.O.L.A.T.E., during the scene where the KND are reviving Henrik, one of the kids has a hair style similar to Yugioh from the Yugioh series.

      • Heinrich: Everything! Chocolate!
        The plot of Heinrich's side of "Operation: C.H.O.C.O.L.A.T.E." is also similar to the book The Chocolate Touch where everything that touches a boy's lips becomes chocolate after eating an enchanted (and delicious!) chocolate.

      • Plot: "Operation: C.H.O.C.O.L.A.T.E."

        The whole episode was basically based off the tale of King Midis. It's about a greedy king that wished that everything he would touch would turn to gold, especially food. But when he accidently touched relative, he realized the error of his ways and wished he didn't have the power anymore. The only difference is that in this episode, things that Heinrich touched turned into chocolate, respectively, and not gold.

      • Numbuh 4: (Whistling)
        On his way up the elevator to the Treehouse, Numbuh 4 whistles the tune to "Toreador" from the opera Carmen, a song (naturally) about matadors.

      • "Operation: M.A.T.A.D.O.R.": Opening Scene
        The opening scene of "M.A.T.A.D.O.R." has similarities to an old Looney Tunes short where Bugs Bunny is a bullfighter - the slapstick and cartoon violence is almost identical.
