  • Quotes

    • Tom: (to Twitty and Tawny about Louis' splash) You know, he's not just spreading water, he's spreading joy.

    • Louis: Mom you don't have to go? It's just I get so nervous and -- (to his dad) HOLY COTTON WHAT'S THAT IN YOUR TEETH?! IT'S A BEAST! I'll go get a toothpick!
      Steve Stevens: I don't need no stinkin' toothpick!

    • Coach Tugnut: You know Stevens, I'm glad you joined the team.
      Louis: Really?
      Coach Tugnut: Yeah! You don't stink so bad!
      Louis: Thanks, coach. Always an inspiration.
      Coach Tugnut: Now take your time and, uh...focus. Ah, keep your eye on the...water.

  • Notes

    • Unseen characters: Doris, Tom's beloved mom; Angela, who Ruby says is leading in the "Best Flirt" voting.

    • Disney Channel promos for this episode showed only scenes from the brief fantasy segment where Louis was attending a future class reunion, causing some confusion among viewers about whether it was really "The Big Splash" which was set to premiere that week.

    • After a long period when Even Stevens was seen at 5:30PM (ET) daily with new episodes premiering on Friday, this was the first Monday premiere of an episode and the first one to be shown at the new time slot of 6:30PM. It was broadcast for the first time only three days after the previous new episode, "Dirty Work."

  • Allusions

    • Steve Stevens: I don't need no stinking toothpick!

      This is a paraphrase from one of the most quoted bits of movie dialogue in history. It comes from the Humphrey Bogart film The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948) a drama about greed and betrayal among men searching for gold. In the movie, actor Alfonso Bedaya in the role of Gold Hat says "Badges? We ain't go no badges. We don't need no badges. I don't have to show you any stinking badges."
