    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Goof: The collar of Alexander's shirt is colored green instead of orange on two occasions. First, in one shot when the gang stop for gas at the filling station, and second, when he's seen frozen from the rear.

      • Goof: After the Scorpion's men gag Melody after kidnapping her, the rest of the gang give chase. When one of them contacts the Scorpion in the next shot, Melody's gag is missing.

      • Goof: When the gang try to avoid getting caught in the Scorpion's magnet hanging from his helicopter, one shot has Alan and the steering wheel on the right side instead of the left.

      • Goofs: The Scorpion's pants and boots change color as he and Alexandra are moving the bull to the rear of his helicopter. Also, after Melody creates a tornado with the weather machine, she, Alexander, Alan, and Josie get caught in it, which then goes outside and demolishes the Scorpion's helicopter, which is carrying him, Alexandra, Sebastian, and a bull. All are seen falling out of the wreckage except Melody and Sebastian. Somehow, everyone is seen piled on the ground, including Valerie, who wasn't even caught in the tornado in the first place!

    • QUOTES (3)

      • (Upon eating an extremely hot taco after Sebastian put extra hot sauce on the wrong one):
        Alexandra: Yeow! Help!! Water!!! Help!!!
        Alan: Hey, what's with Alexandra?
        Josie: She looks burned up about something.
        Alexandra: Don't just stand there. Someone get a pitcher of water!
        Melody: (Chuckles) Well, OK. Here's your picture of water. (displays a calendar with a sailboat at sea) But it's kind of silly if you ask me.
        Alexandra: I won't ask. Believe me!

      • Josie: How do we defrost them?
        Alexandra: These must be the controls. I'll switch them back to medium rare. (Pulls lever and frees the others from their frozen confinement)
        Alan: Wow! We just made it. They're almost icecubes! (Crashing on the floor)
        Josie: Are you all right?
        Alexander: Oh, swell...Considering I'm a 400-year old teenager!

      • (Alan and Josie get some bulls to help the gang against the Scorpion)
        Alexander: This is help?!?
        Alan: It was the only thing we could get!
        Melody: Hey, I just love cows.
        Alexandra: So does Alan. Especially red-headed ones! (referring to Josie)
