Operation: L.I.C.E.: Numbuh 5 goes on a mission to steal nachos at the Delightful Children from Down the Lane's mansion. She makes a narrow escape, getting her hat in the nick of time and returns to the KND Treehouse, sharing the goods with the others. But before she's able to enjoy the nachos with melted cheese, her head becomes very itchy, and discovers a giant louse has stowed away on a different hat that the DCFDTL swapped with hers. Eventually, the lice multiply and become a danger to the KND, who discover the only way to get rid of them is with nacho cheese.
Operation: L.I.Z.Z.I.E.: Numbuh 1 gives the others the day off claiming he's going on a secret mission. The others go to the carnival only to discover he's there, too--with a girlfriend! Nigel reluctantly introduces them to Lizzie, who gets angry with him when he doesn't acknowledge their relationship in front of them. The next day, Lizzie gives him a gift, which the other KND discover is a boyfriend helmet, that she uses to control him into making him do whatever she wants. Can Numbuhs 2-5 save their leader from his possessive girlfriend?

Numbuh 5/Delightful Child From Down the Lane #5
Numbuh 1/Numbuh 2
When Numbuh 2 was attacked by the lice, one of them ate his goggles. But when he runs into the cheese room, the goggles are back on his face.
In L.I.C.E., when the KND goes out to search for the lice, you can see Numbuh 2 pick up the blue bowl of nacho cheese. But when they run on a wooden bridge a few minutes later, Numbuh 2 is not holding the bowl of cheese. But when they go into the room a shot later, he's holding the blue bowl of cheese.
When Numbuh 2 picks up the blue bowl of cheese, he later dumps it on the giant lice, but when they go back to the dining room, the blue bowl is still on the table full of cheese.
Numbuh 5: (whispering) Hey, Numbuh--
Numbuh 4: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH! (sprays nacho cheese everywhere)
Numbuh 1: (covered in cheese) You...cover the rear, Numbuh 4.
Numbuh 4: (nervously) Ain't nothing gonna happen 'cuz I'm cool. I'm cool, I'm cool, I'm ice, baby. No lice is gonna sneak up on me, no sir...Lice don't sneak up on ice...Not even nice lice don't sneak up on ice...Those lice better think twice 'cuz...it's no dice for those lice...No dice for ice. So take my, you cruddy lice, I'm not nice! Right, Numbuh 1?
Numbuh 5: Hey, where are Numbuh 5's magazines?
Numbuh 4: Yuck! I hate it when you make us buy your cruddy girl magazines.
Numbuh 5: Yeah, yeah. Tell it to Captain Loser and the Dorkaloid.
Numbuh 2: You wouldn't know quality literature if it bit you on the...
Numbuh5: Hey, where is Numbuh 1 anyway?
Numbuh 2: (runs in with lice biting him) Stoooooop! You gotta see something cool first, like "Say cheese punk!" or "Cheese to meet you!" oh wai-wai-wai-wait.How about this one...
(Numbuh 5 pushes the cheese button)
Numbuh 2: Cheese...(cheese explodes all over the treehouse).
Lizzie: You can't say wer're going out when we're alone and then deny it in front of your friends
Numbuh 1: But I never did that.
Lizzie: You just did!
Numbuh 1: Did not.
Lizzie: Did too.
Numbuh 1: Did not
Lizzie: Did too!
(Seeing her doll collection ruined by the lice)
Numbuh 1: Don't worry, Numbuh 3. We'll get you some new toys.
Numbuh 3: (quietly): Toys?! I don't want toys... (Eyes suddenly flaming) I WANT REVENGE!!!
Numbuh 4: So what's the big deal? Nobody got hurt.
Numbuh 3: (angrily)Say that again, squirt, and then we'll see if nobody's hurt!
Numbuh 3: I feel sorry for Numbuh 1. Having to work while we're having so much fun.
Numbuh 5: (spots him with a girl) Ooooooh! Numbuh 1's workin' all right. He's workin' it real hard!
Numbuh 4: (Walking backwards) Got to keep cool. Nothings going to happen. I'm cool. I'm cool. I'm ice baby.
No cruddy lice gonna sneak up on lice. No, sir. Lice don't sneak up on ice.
It ain't nice for lice to sneak up on ice. Those lice better think twice because it's no dice for those lice. No dice or rice. (Turns wrong way)
So take my advice, you cruddy lice. I am not nice. Right, Numbuh One?
Right, Numbuh One? (Faces forward)Guys. (Lice appear)AHHHHHHHHHHH!
Numbuh 3: Come on Numbuh 1! Were your friends!
Numbuh 1: The only friend I need is my girlfriend!
Numbuh 4: At least no one got hurt.
Numbuh 3: Say that again and we'll see if no one's hurt, shrimp!
Numbuh 1: You're just jealous!
Numbuh 5: Jealous? Don't hold your breath!
Kids Next Door: (Disguised as woman) You dropped this youngster!
Delightful Children From Down The Lane: Thank you adult person!
Lizzie: And you'll never see your stupid friends ever again!
Numbuh 1: But I like my stupid friends.
Numbuh 1: Those delightful children must of given you a lice infected hat. (Numbuh 2 gasps as a scream is heard)
Take it easy Numbuh 2, it wasn't that surprising!
Numbuh 2: That wasn't me. (Another scream is heard)
Numbuh 4: That came from Numbuh 3's room.
Numbuh 4: Hmph! Women!
Numbuh 3 & 5: WHAT?!? (Start kicking Numbuh 4)
Operation: L.I.C.E. is the first short in which Numbuh 3 displays her rage, displaying fiery eyes after the giant lice shredded her dolls to pieces.
Lizzie uses a boyfriend helmet to control Numbuh 1 against his will.
Operation: L.I.C.E. is the second episode where we see Numbuh 2 without his goggles. The first was Operation: A.R.C.T.I.C.
L.I.C.E. stands for - Lice Interrupt Cheese Eating.
L.I.Z.Z.I.E. stands for - Love Is Zesty Zany Insanity Eh?
First appearance of Lizzie.
From this episode onward Numbuh 1 will have a girlfriend: Lizzie.
Numbuh1 and Lizzie both like pistachio ice cream.
Operation L.I.C.E. is a team episode.
Operation L.I.Z.Z.I.E. is a Numbuh 1 episode.
"Operation: L.I.Z.Z.I.E." is shown as one of the CN cartoons on the DVD that came with the Spain edition of Cartoon Network Magazine Issue #47.
In L.I.C.E., we see at least one of Numbuh 2's eyes twice, once when he lifts his goggles to see something other then cheese (Numbuh 4 covered it in cheese), and when 2 comes running in to tell 5 to say something cool, goggles are ripped on one side.
The restaurant that Numbuh 1 and Lizzie go to is called "La Ball Au Shane" (The Ball And Chain).
Operation: L.I.Z.Z.I.E. is the first time that any of the KND call Numbuh 1 by his real name, as well as the fact the full name, Nigel Uno is mentioned.
Villains: Delightful Children From Down The Lane, Monster Lice, Lizzie.
The helmet Lizzie puts on Numbuh 1 is called the Yes Dear 5000.
Numbuh 3 obviously wants a boyfriend. There's evidence in Operation: L.I.Z.Z.I.E., when she says "I know where I'd want to go if I had a boyfriend... "
While suggesting something "cool" for Numbuh 5 to say, Numbuh 2 does an impression of Arnold Schwarzenegger.
All of the KND's names are allusions to their numbers, and Numbuh 1's is the most obvious. Lizzie mentions at the end of the episode Numbuh One's full name: Nigel Uno, and quite obviously, uno is spanish for one.
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Numbuh 5 making her escape from the DCFDTL's mansion, ending the sequence with narrowly getting her hat from a closing stone door, is a parody of a scene in the 1981 movie that starred Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones.
Numbuh 4: Ain't nothing going to happen
When the KND are eating the nachos and cheese. Numbih 5's has a louse come out of her hat and the louse escapes the room. It is just like they gut brusting scene from Alien.
Later the KND walk down the hallway and Numbuh 4 gets separated only to have the lice get him. That is similar to how some of the characters in Alien died.
Numbuh 3 decides to stay behind and fight the lice. That is similar to a scene in Predator. The guy stays behind to fight the Predator, only he dies.
