Sick Days / Spelling Bee

Aired Saturday 8:00 PM Oct 17, 2004 on Nickelodeon



  • Trivia

    • In sick days, Ned is put in a giant plastic hamster ball to prevent getting germs.

    • When the Killer Bees are taunting Cookie by saying "choke", one of the Killer Bees says an extra "choke" without the other two saying the word.

    • Why was Cookie so worried about getting sent home. He already came to school for most of the day, so it wouldn't count against his attendance record.

    • In "Sick Days", it is clear that Ned is not really trying when he is trying to move the hamster ball by pushing on it with his hands and one foot.

    • When Mat and Ned are on the bike in Ned's daydream, you can see it's not Ned, it's actually a dummy on Mat's back.

    • When Ned is reading in Study hall he has a book. When the bell rings, the camera goes to Ned then backs up, so you can see the table, the book is gone.

    • Moze doesn't like speaking in public in Sick days, but if she is in the spelling bee that means talking in front of people.
