    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (5)

      • The Magic Brocolli increases size in very odd stages. After Candy's first piece her height doesn't really change, but she does get slightly more muscular. After her second piece she because twice as tall and musclebound, and when she takes her third and fourth pieces she becomes giant size.

      • After Candy kicks the Ox away and runs back to Biceptia, a part of her top, the pink material around her neck, is no longer seen. Showing instead is Candy's bare neck.

      • When Candy steps forward to challenge Biceptia, there is a skinny guy with brown hair standing across from her wearing a white shirt with long sleeves. Yet when there is a close up on Biceptia and he is seen in the background again, it is sleeveless.

      • No matter how much bigger Candy gets, the pieces of Broccoli always seem to fit in her hand like a normal-sized piece would.

      • Udrogoth, surprisingly, owns a gym.

    • QUOTES (14)

      • Narrator: When a story is pass through the ages, it is called a legend. The story you're about to hear is not that great. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad story, it has chickens in it, it's just not great.

      • Oswidge: Where's that magic pineapple that reverses the magic broccoli spell? (Faffy eats it) Without that pineapple, Candy's condition is irreversible!
        Dave: Irreversible?!
        Fang : Does that mean it's waterproof?

      • Oswidge : All you have to do is eat one of these magic carrots.
        Candy: (Eats a carrot and her eyes grow big) Uncle Oswidge!
        Oswidge: Right, carrots are good for your eyesight, not your muscles. You want the magic broccoli.
        Fang: Go on, eat it. Don't look so scared.
        Candy: How can I not look scared? My eyeballs are the size of cocker spaniels!

      • Fang: We gotta help Candy. She keeps eating that broccoli and getting bigger and dumber.
        Oswidge: I warned her not to eat anymore of that stuff.
        Fang: No you didn't!
        Oswidge: Well I should have. So there.

      • Fang: Holy country style potato salad, Candy, you're huge!

      • Dave: Lookee here. I knitted a sweater for Candy.
        Fang: That won't fit her! She's even bigger, now.
        Dave: Oh darn, I'll have to give this one to the horses.
        (in Stables)
        Twinkle: Wow. I'm feeling cozy.

      • Uncle Oswidge: It's not what's on the outside that's beautiful; it's what's on the inside; your heart... and your liver, your gallbladder, and your spleen...

      • (after seeing poster of Bicepia the Warrior Woman)
        Lula: (to Dave) She's as big as you!
        Dave: (knitting) Yeah, but I bet she can't knit.
        Lula: A barbarian who knits...

      • Candy: I need to beef up somehow!
        Oswidge: No problem, I'll use my magic!
        Candy: Yeah right, you'll probably turn me into some giant freak!
        Oswidge: Uh...isn't that the point?

      • Pillage Master: Dave the Barbarian, it is now the 16th hour of the 16th day of the 16th month of your 16th year!
        Dave: 16th month? Has anyone checked this guy's math?

      • Candy: Mom! Dave keeps getting presents, and I don't! Tell him to stop it!

      • Guy in video going to be a barbarian: I am both nervous, and excited! (invading house) Yarr!

      • Candy: No fair - how come Dave gets a ritual and I don't?!
        Queen of Udregoth: Girls get something differnt, hon - the rite of postage. Remember when you had to lick all those stamps?
        Candy: Oh, yeah. I thought that was just a summer job.

      • The Pillage Master: Men know me as the Pillage Master. But you may call me...Doria.
        Dave: That's a pretty name.
