  • Trivia

    • 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.

      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.

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.
