  • Hector skips brushing his teeth. General Malaise returns, he and his soldiers make cavities in Hector's teeth.

    This is the END. NOOOO! This series finale episode could win an award for "worst series finale EVER". It doesn't tell what what happened to Hector or Ozzy and Drix! I mean, C'mon! They can't give me popcorn and say "no butter"! Why must the series have to end this way?
  • A good episode, but not the best series finale.

    Cavities (aka Journey to the Center of the Tooth) is about Hector not brushing and flossing his teeth as much or often as he ought too and ends up getting a cavity and having to have it filled.

    Personally, I am a big Ozzy & Drix fan, but I don't think that this episode made a very good season finale. It was just like any other episode in the series, there was nothing there that made it different. I think it would have been made better if they had made it for finale-ish. Like they fast-fowarded to the future Hector or Ozzy & Drix retire or something that would make it final. This episode gives the illusion that there will be more, when there's no more episodes to come.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Why was General Malaise in a prison inside Hector? Shouldn't he have been cast out with other bacteria through the bladder?

    • Since Drix is a cold pill the story of his childhood is illogical. Cold pills don't come in multiple amounts in bottles, but rather wrapped in foil and plastic cards in groups of one or two. This is seen in the movie, Osmosis Jones. (Response: A further note is in Osmosis Jones was that he entered Frank's body in a giant "real" cold pill, which was just his "ship". But since Ozzy was just a "baby" maybe this is just his early/fantasized memory of what really happened.)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Drix: (flashback) I was a happy pill then. The world was one swiftly moving conveyor belt. If life was no more than this, I was content. And then ... it happened. I was rudely dropped into a huge bottle and crushed beneath my brother and sister capsules! I could hardely move or speak. I tried to work my way up when ... suddenly ... I saw it ... The suffocating cotton! The foil-seal! The child-proof cap!!! But the worst was yet to come. No light ... No room. Oh, the horror! The horror!!!

    • General Malaise: Hurry! I want to drive the truck very fast and honk the horn!

    • The Mole: Whoever found out about my secret adrenaline supply...
      Drix: You have a secret adrenaline supply?
      The Mole: What? How did you find out?! Who told you this?! They will suffer!
      Drix: You told me.

    • (Gen. Malaise goes into mitosis)
      Malaise: Sacre Synthesis!
      Malaise 2: Ah, Sacre Synthesis yourself.

    • General 1: Do we all agree not to let the prisoners escape?
      Every General: Oui!
      General 1: Well I would like to point out they're indeed escaping!!

    • Hector's Mom: Hector, did you brush this morning?
      Hector: Uh, sure. Uh-huh.
      Hector's Mom: Then why is your toothbrush dry?
      Hector: Man! It's like living with the FBI!

  • NOTES (7)


    • General Malaise was locked up at the 'Isle of Elbow'. This is a reference to his obvious similarity to Napoleon Bonaparte, who was exiled near the end of his life to the Isle of Elba.

    • Episode Title: Journey to the Center of the Tooth
      Journey to the Center of the Tooth could be a reference to the title of a Jules Verne book, Journey to the Center of the Earth.
