    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Lenny's last name is Kranepool, a very rare and uncommon name that is shared by former Major League baseball player Ed Kranepool, a member of the New York "Miracle Mets," who won the World Series in 1969. We suspect the use of the name might be a tribute to the team by the writer and/or producers.

      • Once again it's confirmed that Louis and Twitty are seventh graders (just like in the first season) when they sit at the "8th grade table" reserved for Larry Beale and his crew.

      • Louis tells Lenny "I'd like to pre-apologize for anything I might do in the future!" Ren used virtually the same line speaking to Principal Wexler about Louis in "A Weak First Week."

      • Towards the end when Ren, Larry, and Coach Tugnut are tossing balls at Louis, they're seen with a rack of 8, and they each take one. However, upwards of a dozen or two balls are thrown at Louis in the end with no time to roll a new cart of balls over.

    • QUOTES (6)

    • NOTES (3)

      • At the conclusion, Nelson is dodging balls to the tune of Johann Strauss Jr.'s famous "Blue Danube Waltz" (aka "On the Beautiful Blue Danube").

      • Around the time this episode was made, some schools had banned dodge ball and many others were seriously considering doing it.

      • When Lenny lifts Louis with his seat high over toward the window, the music played in the background is Walkürenritt (Ride of the Valkyries), from Richard Wagner's Die Walküre (The Valkyrie), the second of his four-opera series Der Ring des Nibelungen (The Ring of the Nibelung, a.k.a. "The Ring Cycle"). This tune has been made famous even beyond opera listeners by the movie Apocalypse Now (1979).

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Twitty: Did you ever notice that when the Incredible Hulk turns back into David Banner, his clothes aren't ripped anymore?

        The Incredible Hulk started as a comic book character created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby of Marvel Comics in 1962. It was 1968 before the Hulk got his own comic. Originally, the Hulk was created after a scientist, Dr. Bruce Banner, was exposed to massive amounts of radiation. As a result of this, Banner made a physical transformation into a super-muscular green "monster" whenever he became too angry! The Hulk was hardly your typical comic book super-hero; in fact, he was more of a misunderstood Frankenstein-type of character.

        In 1978, the TV series The Incredible Hulk debuted on CBS-TV and ran until 1982. Bill Bixby played Dr. David Banner (his comic book name changed from Bruce) and Lou Ferrigno played the Hulk. A feature film The Hulk starring Eric Bana, Nick Nolte, Jennifer Connelley and Brooke Langton is scheduled to be in movie theatres in 2003

      • Ren: Like dinosaurs and the Macarena, let's make dodgeball extinct.

        The Macarena was a dance that enjoyed a burst of intense, yet short-lived popularity in the 1990's. The duo Los del Rio recorded a song called "Macarena," about a dancer they had seen in Venezuela, in 1993, but after it was remixed by the producers the Bayside Boys in 1996, it became a worldwide smash hit. A video for the song instucted viewers on how to do the dance. For a while people everywhere were doing the Macarena, then, like most fad dances, it quickly died out.
