    • When the Animals said "Slam the Panda!!", the Antelope guy was silent.

    • When the penguins are about to throw their dodge-balls, the Green-Suited Penguin's (Which may refer to Nate.) skin is darker than the others.

    • Principal Pixiefrog was announcing the football game.

    • Windsor is as strong as he is smart.

    • The only reason that Coach Gills put Adam on the team is that he could remember the plays.

    • When someone gets a question right, Mr. Hornbill gives them a "treat" from a cup.

    • The school's football team's name is named the Mad-Cows. The opposing team is called the Semi Pros.

    • At the start of the dodge ball game, Adam is in his ordinary clothes.

    • Slips doesn't have ears, So how does his helmet fit on his head?

    • How can Slips play football? He does not have arms. Response: He can still use his tail or his mouth to pass the football to others.

    • The first point equaled 7, but a touchdown is 6 points plus a field goal.

    • First, a kangaroo scored,
      Then, an anteater scored

    • Why was Dingbang in dodgeball? Principal Pixiefrog said since she was endangered and could not participate in mindless activities.

  • Quotes

    • Kid: (to Adam) You forgot your lunch, monkey boy!
      (kid throws a banana at Adam)

    • Hornbill: Which reptile has poor eyesight? Ingrid: Snakes! Hornbill: Correct Ingrid. Here's your treat. (Slips puts on glasses) Hornbill: Which reptile has no ears? Ingrid: Snakes! Hornbill: Correct again! (Slips' glasses fall off)

    • Coach Gills: Lyon, you have the brains, and Spider Monkey, you have the arm, can't you figure how to make them both work?
      Jake: Yeah, but It'll take some kind of surgery.

    • Adam: (to Coach Gills) Excuse me maam, but these plays aren't so hard to remember. (closes the play book) Rollout Option Pass, the offensive line blocks down to prevent a defender from following the pulling guard and the tight end double teams the OT's man. If the defender changes the cover to block, the Quarterback runs behind his two blockers, sending the play into second option.

    • Jake: Wahoo! Wahoo!
      Coach Gills: We're at the zero spider monkey.
      Jake: Hey, zero's better than nothing.
