  • Great, great episode

    What can be better than an evening with Fenton, seeing Fenton's mom naked, Coach McGuirk drunk at the mall stealing Melissa's Fairy Princess wings? The evil Fairy Princess den mother was the tops. And I loved Melissa's father's revelation that he too went through a whole gender bending phase. I'd love to see that. And the kids totally inability to master the walkie talkies was total hilarity. The ending was great with Melissa's final blow up and decision to leave the Fairy Princesses in ruin. Also, a small scene where the coach makes references to the soccer team as a bunch of crying babies totally made the episode.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Bumper stickers on McGuirk's car:
      "Yankees Sucks" and "Rehab is 4 Quitters!!!"

    • All of the Fairy Princess merchandise is $6.66.

    • In "the party" Fenton was mean to his mother and everyone and his mom never did anything about it. In this one he's afraid to get in trouble.

      Response: That is because near the end of "The Party" when Coach McGuirk saw how Fenton was behaving, McGuirk yelled at him and made him apologize to his mother. So now, Fenton obeys his mother.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Eric: I've signed you up, and now, you are a fairy-princess.
      Melissa: I am?
      Eric: Yup. So you're going to need to turn in your jockstrap and your cup.
      Melissa: Both?

    • Eric: Now, you know you'll always be my little baby girl, right?
      Melissa: Yeah.
      Eric: No matter what.
      Melissa: Mm-hmm.
      Eric: It's just that I'm afraid I'm going to blink and you'll be a man.

    • McGuirk: Brendon, will you tell this kid to turn the walkie-talikie off before I smash it?
      Jason: Brendon, will you tell this guy to kiss my ass because I ain't turning it off.

    • Melissa: What the crap?

    • McGuirk: Let me tell you something about women: Women are insane! They're insane, alright? Get them together in a group and they go insane...or they turn into animals

    • FPC Representative: No, get away from me you little goblin.

    • Brendon: Ok, Walkie-Talkie test, let's see if these babies work, can anybody hear me?
      Jason: Yes.
      Brendon: Can anybody hear me?
      Jason: yes, yes we can hear you.
      Brendon: Guys, we need to keep in touch this weekend, so we have to learn how to use these things, all right? It's... whoops -- hello? Can you hear me now?
      Jason: Yes... whoops. Yes... over.
      Melissa: Okay, I'm talking now, can you guys here me?
      Jason: Is that you Brendon?
      Brendon: No, it's Melissa.
      Jason: How are you?
      Brendon: Fine. How are.. but.. I'm not Melissa.
      Jason: Oh, who is this?
      Brendon: It's Brendon.
      Jason: Oh hey Brendon, what's up? I was just asking about you about a second ago.
      Melissa: Who's talking right now?
      Jason: I think it's Melissa.
      Brendon: No, I think it's Jason.
      Melissa: I think it's Brendon.
      Jason: No, it's Melissa.
      Brendon: No, it's Jason.
      Melissa: Now it's Brendon.
      Brendon: Yes!
      Melissa: What?
      Brendon: Look, guys, we have to keep in touch this weekend because Melissa's at the Fairy Princesses, and I'm staying at Fenton's, so leave the walkie talkies on! Leave them on! ..whoops -- can you guys hear me now?
      Jason: Ugh, we can hear you Melissa!

    • Brendon and Fenton's Mom: after seeing her naked AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    • Eric: Melissa, do you have any friends that are girls?
      Melissa: Kinda
      Eric: Do you have any friends that are girls about my age ?

  • NOTES (6)

    • Gnome appearances:
      (1) Bed shot during the Walkie-talkie test. (2) in the far left corner when McGuirk is talking to Melissa at the mall. A sign says, "All Gnomes 40% Off!"

    • Fenton's character has changed from "The Party". In "The Party", he was a spoiled brat who was mean to his mother. In "Shore Leave", he is an overly obedient creepy kid. I guess that McGuirk set him straight.

    • Brendon's Filmography:
      "Shore Leave" – Three sailors finally get off the seas and get to spend some time on shore leave.

    • The Fairy Princess camp affects Melissa subconciously without anyone really noticing. In later episodes, we see her as a princess several times and, in the case of "Focus Grill", starts wearing cosmetics regularly. In the previous two seasons, we barely see any of this side of her.

    • After this episode aired, someone registered the domain name of http://www.fentonsnakedmom.com, one of the websites McGuirk tried to register. Check it out. There's no porn on it or anything. Its somewhat amusing.

    • This episode seems to disprove the previous theory that Perry and Walter are gay, as they are among the boys vying for a chance to have a sleepover with Fenton in hopes of seeing his mother naked.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • The Blair Witch Project:
      Brendon talking into his camera in the closet is a reference to the movie, "The Blair Witch Project". Both monologues are shot from a low angle while the character does not know if he or she will survive.

    • Wario
      Fenton is a spoof of Wario from his debut Super Mario Land II: 6 Golden Coins.
