Episode Summary

Human Behavior/Four Eyed Jake
Human Behavior: Today is mid-terms at Charles Darwin Middle School, and Adam actually manages to pass all his tests with flying colors. But all the studying and preparation he had to do for the tests has put a strain on Adam's brain, and now he can't stop acting wild! While it's always been Jake's dream to have a wild friend, it soon becomes a nightmare when Adam becomes too much for Jake to handle. Even worse, Adam has already pre-planned to go to the Chester Arthur Middle School debutante ball with Kerry, and Kerry doesn't want Adam acting wild. So Jake, in order to save his reputation as a good friend to Adam, promises to Kerry that no matter what, Jake will tame and re-train Adam to be civilized. Will Jake's efforts be successful? Four Eyed Jake: Adam discovers that Jake has bad eyesight and knows that his friend needs to get his condition treated right away! However, when Jake gets eyeglasses, it changes how his friends see him as they begin to shun him. Since Adam doesn't want to see his friend get shunned, he decides to help Jake level the playing field by helping Jake find out the weaknesses of everyone at Charles Darwin. But is this a good idea?moreless

  • Incredible as it seems, things get even wilder than usual at Charles Darwin Middle School in this episode! :!:

    I want to begin by quoting Prince for my review. "Ladies and gentleman, we are here today to get through life. Its heart beats forever and that's a mighty long time. But I'm here to tell you there's something else." This show, "My Gym Partner's a Monkey" is great! "It's a world of never-ending happiness, we can always see the sun, day or night. So remember, things are much harder here than in this other world. In this life, we're on our own! Let's go crazy, let's get nuts! Go crazy!" And if that song doesn't prove what I'm talking about, nothing will! This show Is crazy, this show Is nuts, and I wouldn't have it any other way! Life in this show is so much fun, and a lot easier to get through for a human named Adam Lyon! This time, Adam takes the concept of behaving like an animal too far! He can't stop acting like an animal! At first, Jake's interested in the new, wild behavior of Adam as a wild friend! But Jake soon learns having a wild human friend is much more work than Jake could ever hope to (or even want to) handle! But he has to handle it! Kerry's expecting Adam to take her to a date at a junior debutante ball, and she expects Adam to act civilized! What I liked about this concept is that even though Jake Spidermonkey is gay he realizes Adam and Kerry were Meant to be together, and promises Kerry that Jake will straighten Adam up! And even though Jake was only able to re-teach Adam into holding a fork, standing upright, and wearing a tux (sort of), Adam ends up being more civilized than any other boy at the ball! Kerry ends up with the best date at the ball, and Adam finally gets his sleep! And Jake learns that all animals have weaknesses. But with Adam's hlep, he learns about them! And when the animals learn about each others weaknesses, it inspires the animals to successfully overcome their weaknesses! I sure love this show! :idea:moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (8)

    • It is revealed in this episode that Kerry has empathy for Adam Lyon concerning what he has to go through at Charles Darwin Middle School.

    • It seems that Jake Spidermonkey has gotten over his jealousy in Kerry to Dance? of Kerry being attracted to Adam when Jake was also attracted to Adam; as Jake was willing to help re-train Adam to be civilized again so that Kerry would have a good date at her debutante ball.

    • It is revealed that prior to this episode, Adam had been pulling all-nighters for three weeks straight in order to pass his mid-terms. And that's what caused him to act weird. It also explains why Adam briefly acted weird in A Mid Semester Life's Dream. He was already feeling the effects of insomnia. So all the events between A Mid Semester Life's Dream and Human Behavior took place within three weeks. Glazed and Confused only took one entire week.

    • Revealed weaknesses (that were cured later) of characters:
      Jake Spidermonkey: Had poor eyesight.
      Windsor T. Gorilla: Was afraid of puppies.
      Lupe Toucan: Is overdependent on her vulture boyfriend, Corey. Virgil "Bull" Sharkowski: Turns into a Bull Moose Shark on every Wednesday. Adam Lyon: Sounded too much like a girl. Ingrid Giraffe: Her weakness to everything was her weakness.
      Slips Python: Has feelings (left unchanged.)

    • Third time that Slips has appeared naked in an episode.

    • It's learned in this episode that Adam has at least one uncle, and this one uncle is an Optometrist who lives in the same city that Adam lives in.

    • Running gags in this episode: 1. In Human Behavior, Adam Lyon keeps acting like different animals. 2. Jake and his friends keep spraying Adam with water bottles whenever he does something wrong. 3. Jake is not able to see clearly without glasses or corrective surgery. 4. Creatures continue to shun Jake by ignoring him.

    • Billboard gags: 1. Human Behavior: The Midterms are A. Today? (Checkmarked) B. Tomorrow? (Blank) C. None of the Above? (Blank) 2. Four Eyed Jake: Join the Repelican Party.
