      Numbuh 1: Uh, is anyone here allergic to milk?

    • DCFDTL: Lunk, you stay here to deter any uninvited guests. (Leave via the secret passagway)
      Lunk: (Moans, then takes a liking to Leona's bracelet) Duh, purty!

      Toddler Numbuh 2: (Giggles) I just did!

    • Numbuh 4: Okay, run this by me again. Why are we risking our lives to save Leaky Leona?!

    • Numbuh 3: This place is "Gihugic"!

    • Numbuh 5: This must be the library.
      Numbuh 4: What's a library?

  • Notes

    • In this episode, it's learned Numbuh 1 originally had brown hair, but an incident with the DCFDTL caused him to be permanently bald. Numbuh 5 blamed herself for this happening as a result of not there to help him when he needed it. From that time on, she's devoted herself to helping kids no matter what.

    • We learn when Numbuh 4 was younger, he looked similar to his little brother Joey

    • Based on the episode, Numbuh 4 does well in Gym, considering he managed to get them past the Gym part of the ancient school

    • Second time the KND's and DCFDTL's age was changed. The first time was in G.R.O.W.U.P

    • Team episode, but more centered around Numbuh 5.

    • The dodgeball game in the old school gym, was like the giant chess game in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer´s Stone."

    • We now know that Numbuh 2 and Numbuh 3 are in the same class and because of Operation: R.O.B.B.E.R.S. that Numbuh 4 and Numbuh 5 are also in class together.

    • We finally see Lenny of the DCFDTL without his helmet on.

    • The DCFDTL actually saved the KND in this episode.

    • We learn that Leeky Leona uses the Fountain of Youth to stay a kid forever, even though she is really old.

    • We learn that Numbuh 3 wore her hair in pigtails until she was 9.

    • F.O.U.N.T.A.I.N. stands for Figure Out Unusual Nerd's Tantilizing And Impossible Necessity.

    • This is the fourth full-length episode of the series.

  • Allusions

    • Leona: You... have to find the fountain...
      This is a reference to the game Golden Sun, likely. There's a point quite late on when you find a man who's lived to be over 150. He tells you he's lived off magical draught, and is almost dead from a recent lack of it. You are then sent to get it, in a similar way that Leona said that line.

    • Fountain Of Youth Secret Passage: Harry Potter
      There is a secret passage in the girl's bathroom activated by turning a knob on the sink. It's probably a reference to Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets.
