  • Quotes

    • Coop: Forty-four ounces of pure delicious Mega-Slush, available in variety of flavor.
      Jamie: And all for only a buck forty-nine.

    • Jamie: Oh look, I found a buck!
      Coop: Hang on Mega-Slush we're coming for ya!

    • Coop: (to Jamie) You got cash?
      Jamie: Me?
      Coop: Check the seat cushions!

    • Kiva: (about the Mega-Slush) I can't understand this fascination with a simple beverage.

    • Kiva: Alright, let me see what the big deal is. (after trying a Mega Slush) Wow.
      Coop: Told ya.
      Kiva: (tries some more then clutches head)
      Coop: Brain freeze.
      Jamie: Amateur.

    • Coop (After being told 'No smashing'): No smashing? But I love smashing.

    • Coop: All I wanted was a Mega Slush, just one Mega Slush. But you wouldn't let me have it, would you? You busted up my town and you tried to eat my robot. Now, you're going down!

    • Kiva: You get your drink, I got a highly destructive alien robot to examine.
      Coop: You want us to pick you up something?
      Kiva: Yeah, a new Time Flux unit, so I can get out of this neanderthal nightmare and back to save humanity's future.
      Coop: Uh, I don't think they got that. You want some beef jerky instead?
      Kiva: Sure.

    • REGIS (after getting hit on the head with a ball): Stand aside or you will be struck down! (he stares at a fire-hydrant) Die then! (he shoots the fire-hydrant)

    • Coop: That thing just hurt my Mega Slush!

    • (After REGIS sucks up the last Mega Slush machine)
      Coop: You sick, regenerating alien robot freak!

    • Jamie (when REGIS destroys a car): Whoa!
      Coop: I know, they got the new tri-flavored Super Goblet!
      Jamie: Huh, no kidding, three flavors in one single cup?

    • REGIS: Surrender and I will kill you peacefully.

    • Kiva: No smashing!
      Coop: No smashing? But I like smashing!
      Kiva: No smashing!
      (Coop looks at his control panel, all the controls are for smashing)

    • Coop: I just gotta find the right way to smash him. (Coop then procedes to smash REGIS in a variety of ways)

    • Jamie: There's always Hoboken?
      Coop: Yeah, but that's Hobumpkin!

    • Jamie: There's too many of them!
      Coop: Not for long!

    • Coop: OK, so we just have to wait 'till night.
      (A group of REGIS gather around them)
      Kiva: Or, we could think of a plan that doesn't have to wait until we're long dead!

    • Coop (after escaping from the inside of REGIS): No alien, no robot, no alien-robot ever does that to me!

    • Jamie: Coop, we gotta stop that thing, before it hurts me!

    • Coop: Rock on for the Mega Slush!

    • REGIS: Do not panic, you will all die!

    • Coop: Quarter!
      Jamie: Dime! Where's that leave us? This thing got a calculator?
      Kiva (sarcastically): Oh, let me put all the processing power of this technological marvel to work, adding up your change!
      Jamie: That's the spirit!

    • Coop: What did you use to cool off in your time period?
      Kiva: A ration pack of balanced, electro-litic rehydration fluid.
      Coop: That is one bleak future you come from.

  • Notes

    • There is an animation error when Kiva is checking for any damages on Megas, and she picks up the distress message about REGIS, you can see Coop on his seat. But in the next scene, you see that Coop is actually in the shop with Jamie, getting a Mega-Slush.

    • This episode marks the first appearance of Little Tommy, the boy who's constantly observing the Megas' antics and saying "Cool!"

    • Not long after this episode Target released a slushie with 3 different flavor holes like the one in this episode.

    • R.E.G.I.S. stands for Replicant Engineered for Galactic Infiltration and Sabotage.

    • This episode marks the first time that Kiva has tried a Mega Slush.

    • The episode starts with Coop's air conditioner still being broken after it overheated when he tried to use it to cool off from a fire attack in Magnanimous's robot battle arena.

    • Running Gag: Every time Coop comes close to getting a Mega Slush, REGIS interferes and prevents him from getting one.

    • Ending Credits: The piece of REGIS that the boy carried home comes to life.

    • PopTV Destruction: PopTV Billboard

    • Episode's Villains: REGIS

  • Allusions

    • 7-11 Slurpees
      At the time of airing the price for a 44 oz Slurpee from 7-11 was 1.49, the same price as the Mega-Slush of the same size.

    • When REGIS regenerates it is similer to the way the terminator regenerates in Terminator 2.

    • Little Tommy's taking a piece of the REGIS home with him is an allusion to an Avengers comic in which a woman takes a piece of the recently destroyed Ultron home with her, only to have it merge with her house's electronics and reform itself.

    • When Coop mentions that all he wanted was a slushie, just one slushie, it is making a reference to the song Institutionalized by Suicidal Tendencies.
