    • At the beginning of the episode after Bobby and Joseph talk about spying on the girls they ride off in different directions. Later when Joseph is spying using the night vision goggles, it shows his house next to Connie's. However the Hill's house is in between the Gribble's and Souphanousinphone's, so both these scenes are wrong.

  • Quotes

    • Metal Shop Kid: Hey Booby. Play any kickball today?
      Bobby : Why? You up for a game?
      Metal Shop Kid: Just saying "hi." Just saying "hi."

    • Kahn: I heard what you did to Chane Wasonasong. Unforgivable! But then I heard what you did to your father. Very funny. So I'm conflicted.

    • Bill: I wish I had a son to kick me in the nuts.
      (Dale kicks Bill in the groin)
      Dale: Be careful what you wish for.

    • Peggy: What about... the other one?
      Medic: We can't find it. But there's no cause for alarm. It'll probably turn up once the swelling goes down.

    • Clark: What are you gonna do? Are you gonna kick me in the nads?
      Bobby: Am I gonna do it? Yes. When am I gonna do it? Don't know. Could be tomorrow -- now! (Bobby kicks Clark between the legs) One thing you'll find out about me, Clark, is that I'm not a very patient person.

    • Bobby: I didn't go looking for trouble. Trouble came a-knockin' and Bobby Hill's foot answered the door.

    • Joseph: My dad says that whenever you're in a jail-type situation, the best way to survive is to take out the biggest guy there. That way you establish who's boss right from the get-go. Or you can hang yourself with your pants. He says that's another way to go.

    • Hank: Well, all right, son! You know, that Chane Wasonasong must know all kinds of Oriental martial arts, and you beat him with good old American YMCA know-how.

    • Bobby: That's my purse! I don't know you!

    • Kahn: Bobby Hill, out the window! Chane, you and your friends may use the door.

    • Susan: I'd leave, but I already paid your dad for the continental breakfast.

    • Bobby: You can't punish me!
      Hank: I'll tell you what I can't do - sleep on my stomach! But I can sure as heck punish you!

    • Peggy: (after being kicked between her legs) Ladies don't have testicles. Where's your secret weapon now?
