  • Trivia

    • Unless you count Dani by name and appearance, this marks the ninth and final time Danny doesn't appear in the opener.

    • When Danny goes with Valerie into Fentonworks, you see Jack trapped inside the box where they put some experimented ghosts, but it never shows in the episode how Jack got in there.

    • Valerie has been hunting ghosts a long while now, but she was surprised when Vlad phases through the pins she used to stick him to the wall. She should know by now that ghosts can phase through things-especially since Danny helped her phase earlier in the same episode.

    • When Dani reforms after turning into a pile of goo, she jumps out of the tray. However, the tray still has more goo in it. All the goo was what of Dani had already dissolved, so it should have been empty.

    • How did Valerie know about Vlad's ghost name? Danny and Danielle never mentioned it, but both of them addressed Vlad by his first name for the entire episode.

    • Vlad's cat, Maddie, is either different from the one in Infinite Realms but with the same name, or has gained a lot of weight.

    • Apperantly, Valerie works for Vlad and has been since been since Flirting with Disaster (he's got a call button just to summon her), however, he makes a note about her new outfit and does again as Vlad, meaning it's the first time he's seen it. How can that be since she's been working for him?

  • Quotes

    • Danny: Man, you really know how to work the system, don't you?
      Vlad: It's my specialty.
      Danny: Now Valerie blames Vlad Plasmius for trying to destroy Dani, leaving Vlad Masters in the clear. If only she knew you were one and the same.
      Vlad: Well, you can always tell her. But I'm afraid I'll have to counter such slanderous accusations by revealing your little secret.
      Danny: (Referring to Dani) Don't come near her again! (Flies off)

    • Danny: (After his blasts fail to free Dani from the shackles) I can't break them Danielle, there's only one thing left to try. (Takes out the ecto-dejecto) Feeling brave?
      Dani: A little weak in the knees actually. And I don't even have knees anymore!
      Danny: Well then let's hope my dad didn't mend his Achilles' heel! (Sprays the ecto-dejecto on Dani, nothing happens)
      Dani: (Weakly) I think it's too late. Bye Danny... (Starts to melt) Thanks for...
      Danny: Oh no... (Dani gives one last moan before melting into a puddle) No! No, Dani! I failed you... (Covers his face in sorrow) I'm so sorry... (Some bubbles being to appear in the puddle and Dani's head comes out)
      Dani: Danny? What's the trouble?
      Danny: Huh? (Sees Dani alive and smiles) Hey!
      Dani: (Flies out of the puddle in one piece and hovers as Danny walks to her) I'm me again! (The two hug) I knew you wouldn't let me down!

    • Dani: (After defeating Vlad) Guess that'll teach him not to pick on a defenseless girl.
      Valerie: There's no such thing!

    • Danny: Valerie, you don't wanna do this!
      Valerie: No, (Holds up a weapon) you don't want me to do this.
      Danny: Well... yeah...

    • Valerie: I don't hate you, Danny. It's because of you that I'm the most powerful ghost hunter in Amity Park.
      Danny: Hey! What about the Fentons?
      Valerie: Are you kidding? They couldn't catch a ghost if it was living under their own roof.
      Danny: True.

    • Valerie: Mr.Masters! I forgot about him! (Flies into to Vlad's mansion on her jet sled) Mayor Masters? Are you ok? Mayor Masters?
      Vlad: Disappeared! Oh, and we were so close! If only we'd managed to melt that little brat down!
      Valerie: Is that Plasmius? (Hides behind a pillar)
      Vlad: And who knew Valerie would be so easy to fool. Trapping me in the closet. Oh! Ingenius! (Transforms into Plasmius) For a smart girl she's very easily lead. (Valerie flies out)
      Valerie: Vlad Masters is Vlad Plasmius? Phantom was right all along! And all this time I've been doing all his dirty work! (rides ouside) Well not anymore, better watch out Vlad, cause one of the ghosts I'm hunting now, is you!

    • Valerie: (Trying to find Danielle) Listen kid. I know you're in here, and I know something evil is hunting you. Danielle: Yeah, no kidding.

    • Valerie: Y-you're a girl and a ghost?
      Dani: And you're welcome.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • The Real Ghostbusters: "Egon's Ghost"

      Dani's not the first ghost/human hybrid to have problems with stability. In The Real Ghostbusters' episode "Egon's Ghost," an explosion caused Egon Spengler to take on the properties and powers of a ghost even though he was technically still alive. Like Dani, his ghost form was also unstable, and, like Danny, his team had to find a way to stabilize him before it was too late.

    • Danny: Go ahead destroy ghosts, but would you take part in destroying a human?
      This is similar to the Looney Tunes. When the enemies try to kill the prey, after they capture them, they start feeling guilty for doing it.
