  • Mysterious tales of Lawndale have been revealed.

    I think my favorate tale from Legends of the Mall would be the one about metal-mouth. I love that episode because it took place in the eighties. It's my absolute favorate decade; they had interesting clothes and they had great music! Plus, I was born in the late eighties so I kind of missed some stuff. Another reason I love this episode is because it is a parody of an old urban legend called "The Hook". I also liked the music they used; Duran Duran's (My favorate band) Hungery Like The Wolf and Cyndi Lauper's (My favorate singer) Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The item Metal Mouth refers to as a "chuck" is actually a "chuck key". The chuck holds the bit in place, and the drill won't work without it. The chuck key is used to adjust the chuck, and would indeed be dangerous if left in the chuck when the drill was powered.

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Sandy: Tiffany, dear, eyelid-consuming monsters simply do not exist.

    • Jake: Daria, you don't think Quinn is lost in the woods, do you?
      Daria: I doubt it. There's nothing to buy there.

    • Jake: (Trying to get the car started) Just move it! C'mon! It's just what you have to do! It's just what you only know to do! Damn it! Radio with wheels!

    • Quinn: But he's suposed to pick us up at the mall.
      Daria: He's discussing that with the car right now. But the car seems to be saying you're taking the bus.
      Quinn: The what?
      Daria: The bus. It's like a bigger car only with old men sleeping sitting up. At least I hope they're sleeping.

    • Tiffany: I can't believe no guy would give us a ride.
      Quinn: Maybe we shouldn't make them wait in the car anymore while we're shopping. Remember last summer when Jeffy got all dehydrated and his tongue was hanging out and stuff?

    • Quinn: Someone said we had to take the bus.
      Sandi: Quinn, no offense or anything, but humor is not your forte.

    • Daria: If that woman were Judy Garland, this might make some sense on a couple of levels.

    • '60s Jodie: Who let the Third-World Solidarity Club pick the music?

    • (on Metal Mouth)
      Trent: Some people say that's what drove him to madness. Others say, you know, no.

    • Quinn: This place is weird.
      Tiffany: What was that noise?
      Sandi: Stacy, you're not wearing those bangles again, are you?
      Stacy: Oh, no! It's the Rattling Girl of Lawndale!

    • Jake: You're going to steer with both hands when we're actually on the road, right?
      Trent: Unless I think of some lyrics on the road and have to write them down. You understand.

    • Jake: But now how are we going to fit four more people into the car?
      Jane: It's been done before. And this time there's no drum kit.
      Jake: What's that funny smell?
      Trent: It wasn't so funny when it happened, but it makes a really great story.

    • Sandi: Excuse me, but this isn't my street.
      Bus Driver: No problem. Just click your heels and say there is no place like home. Only do it outside. This is the end of the line.

    • In the 1950's story in this episode, the 1950's Daria's line when she gets locked in the bomb shelter, "Dad you GD idiot" was cut to remove the GD part.

    • On Noggin, during the 1960's story, the 1960's Sandi's line "You can never be too thin" was cut because the censors thought it would encourage eating disorders.
