    • In Operation R.A.I.N.B.O.W. Rainbow monkeys look like ugly drooling regular monkeys. How come the monkey in H.U.G.S. looks like the actual doll?

  • Quotes

    • Numbuh 4: Rainbow Monkeys are so stupid.
      Numbuh 3: Don't you ever ever call rainbow monkeys stupid.
      Numbuh 4: Rainbow dorkies are stupid.
      Numbuh 3: Stop it.
      Numbuh 4: Stupid, Stupid, Stupid!
      Numbuh 3: I said stop! So STOP!
      Numbuh 4: I'll keep saying stupid until you let me leave. Stupid!Stupid! Stupid!
      Numbuh 3: Okay. But not before our rainbow monkey good bye hug (starts hugging Numbuh 4)!
      Numbuh 4: Are you nuts?
      Numbuh 3: But we have to. Rainbow monkey pals can never leave without saying goodbye.
      Bethany: It's okay rainbow monkey sister. We can make an exception for him.
      Numbuh 3: I guess so, but it's so not in the rainbow monkey spirit.

    • Heinrich:Guten Tag mein Abigail. So good of you to join us.
      Numbuh 5: Oh, hello... Heinie!
      Heinrich: My name is Heinrich von Marzipan! I believe I made that clear when we last met in Guatemala!
      Numbuh 5: Uh (chuckles weakly), yeah... listen, about Guatemala, you see some urgent business came up and--
      Heinrich: And you left me holding the bag of sacred golden caramels just as the authorities arrived! I was grounded for ein month!

    • Numbuh 3: Hey! I hope you don't think you are leaving!
      Numbuh 4: Huh, of corse! I can't believe you tricked me into coming here!
      Numbuh 3: I didn't trick you. I just said that we were going to the exstra super coolest place ever!!
      Numbuh 4: I can think about a buhzillion cooler places than the "Rainbow Monkey Fair-and-Share Fair." I could be back at the treehouse working with Numbuh 2 on that giant wreastling robot right now, but no! I'm stuck here in a girly-lovy-rainbow-monkey world! Blech! Rainbow monkeys are so STUPID!!!! (echoing the word STUPID!)

    • Numbuh 1: Blurpleberry! You KNOW I prefer cherry!

    • Numbuh 5: So long, gummy mummy!

    • Numbuh 5: How many times do I have to tell people. A great candy taken in greed always turnes sour.

    • Numbuh 4: How do I get myself into these messes?

    • Numbuh 5: Heh heh heh... so that's why they call 'em jawbreakers!

    • Candy Mummy/Heinrich: Look's like you've eaten the last chocolate in the box, fraueline!

  • Notes

    • According to the creators of the show, this episode reveals it to be Numbuh 1's TENTH birthday, so it's apparent that this episode took place awhile ago.

    • Operation: H.U.G.S. is a Numbuh 4 episode.
      Operation: J.E.W.E.L.S is a Numbuh 5 episode.

    • Running gag: Numbuh 4 says, "How do I get myself into these messes?" every time something bad happens to him - three times to be exact. First - in the beguinning, second when he woke up on Rainbow Monkey Island and in the end when the giant monkey charged.

    • Numbuh 5 doesn't appear in H.U.G.S.

    • Villains: Rainbow Monkey, Rainbow Monkey cult; Heinrich Von Marzipan.

    • This episode aired on Friday the 13th.

    • You can draw a lot of parallels between J.E.W.E.L.S and the Indiana Jones movies. For example, Numbuh 5's rival in this, Heinrich "Heinie" acts and sounds quite a bit like Prof. Belloq.

    • Numbuh 1 is apparently partial to cherries.

    • Operation: J.E.W.E.L.S. is very similar to Operation: F.L.A.V.O.R.: both star Numbuh 5, involve a sugary delacacy of which she is highly fond of, have her trying to rescue the treat from the bad guys, and seem to be based on the adventures of Indiana Jones.

    • This is the second time one of the Kids Next Door has a birthday (the first was Numbuh 3 in Operation: F.A.S.T.F.O.O.D.) But does this mean Numbuh 1 is turning 11?

    • There's actually a small hint in this episode that Numbuh 5 likes Numbuh 1. She went through all of that trouble to get that candy jewel for his birthday present.

    • H.U.G.S. stands for Humungously Unwieldly Gorilla Showdown; J.E.W.E.L.S. stands for Juvinile Escapes With Extreamly Luscious Sweet.

    • KND Technology: W.R.A.S.L.E.R. (Wrestling Robot Absolutely Slamifies Large Enemy Riffraff)

    • H.U.G.S. is a Numbuh 4 episode and J.E.W.E.L.S is a Numbuh 5 episode.

    • This isn't the season finale! This season has either 13 or 20 eps, and this is the 10th!

    • First two eposide season ender, for season 1 was Operation: G.R.O.W.-U.P. and season 2 was Operation E.N.D.

  • Allusions

    • Giant Rainbow Monkey: In Operation H.U.G.S., many of the scenes such as the giant Rainbow Monkey climbing the treehouse, and the scene where Numbuh 4 was tied up while he was about to encounter the giant Rainbow Monkey were similar to that in 'King Kong' (1933).

    • King Two Ton the Candy: King Two Ton the Candy is a spoof of King Tutenkhamen

    • There are a lot of similarities between Number 5 in J.E.W.E.L.S. and Lara Croft, the Tomb Raider, whose greatest rival was also an ex-boyfriend. It is also very similar to the Indiana Jones series of movies.
