  • Quotes

    • Stickybeard: Ah, you have passion for the candy, lassie. What do you say you be my new first mate? Togther, we'll sail the suburbs, robbing kids of their candy. And when me teeth are all fallen out, you'll inherit me vast candy fortune, and have all the candy for 200 miles! And that's nautical miles, too, which I'm fairly certain is more than regular miles. Har! HaHaHaHaHaHa!!!
      Numbuh 5: Hmmmm. That's a lot of candy. (Has visions of candy, then remembers her friends)
      Stickybeard: So, what do you say, lassie?
      Numbuh 5: Thanks, Stickybun, but Numbuh 5's already got a sweet gig.
      Stickybeard: So your mind's made up, is it, lassie?
      (A few minutes later, standing on end of plank)
      Numbuh 5: Hmmm. How much candy were you offering again?


    • Numbuh 1: Does a kid have false teeth?!

    • Numbuh 3: Yippee Yi Yo Yo YOOOOOOOO!!!

    • Cowgirl: (Speaking into cup) Hello? Can you hear me?
      Numbuh 1: Hello. Will you accept a collect call FROM THE 21ST CENTURY?!?!?

  • Notes

    • Operation: P.I.R.A.T.E. is a Numbuh 5 episode.
      Operation: C.O.W.G.I.R.L. is a team episode.

    • P.I.R.A.T.E. stands for Pirates Invade Repository And Treats Extracted.

    • Mr.Wink and Mr.Fibb hate onions.

    • Mr. Wink's first name is John.
      Mr. Fibb's first name is Timothy.

    • "Operation: P.I.R.A.T.E." was a rare episode in which Numbuh 2 wasn't piloting a KND air vehicle. Numbuh 4 was flying the airship the group used to pursue Stickybeard's ship and Numbuh 2 swung to Numbuh 5's rescue when they caught up to the pirate.

    • For those interested in knowing, a nautical mile equals about 6080 feet, which is indeed slightly greater than a standard mile.

    • Stickybeard's ship is named the "Sweet Revenge."

    • Mr. Fibb & Mr. Wink were members of The Cowboy Kids Club.

    • The "Dome" is Mr. Fibb's wig.

    • P.I.R.A.T.E shows a few scenes of some "fondeness" between
      Numbuh 2 and Numbuh 5 including Numbuh 2's praise for
      Numbuh 5 "being the greatest" when she shares her stash;
      how Numbuh 5 remembers Numbuh 2's comment when Sticky
      Beard offers her to join him, Numbuh 2 being the one
      that saved Numbuh 5 from falling to her death and Numbuh
      2's concern for Numbuh 5 at the end of the ep.

    • When Operation: P.I.R.A.T.E. ends transmission, an additional scene is shown in which Stickybeard has his two short pirates paddling their rowboat, the Bitter Sweet, in the middle of the street.

    • Villains: Stickybeard, Mr. Fibb, Mr. Wink, pirates.

  • Allusions

    • Mr. Wink and Mr. Fibb are based off of a pair of assassins in the James Bond movie "Diamonds Are Forever" named Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd.

    • Stickybeard
      Stickybeard is just like the most famous REAL pirate: Blackbeard.
      Even the candy in Stickybeard's beard is probably because that Blackbeard used to put small fireworks in his beard to make him look more scary.
