Episode Summary

Osmosis Jones
When Zoo worker Frank, single father to the young and bright girl Shane, swallows a germ-ridden egg, he gives billions of lifeforms inside his body much work to do. In the "City of Frank", which has its good and its bad neighbourhoods, its own TV station, donut shops and traffic jams, the white blood cell Osmosis Jones is one of the many cops who try to keep up peace and order. Unfortunately, Jones seems to be the only cop in town who does not act by the book, but by his instincts. Even more unfortunately, his instincts don't work out that often, and so he causes more trouble than he does good. But with that germ-ridden egg comes a mortal danger: The evil and deadly virus Thrax arrives in order to kill Frank within 48 hours, just to get his own chapter in the medical books. Starting out with flu symptoms in order to deceive the authorities and the public, Thrax makes his way through Franks body. Accompanied only by "temporary relief of symptoms commonly associated with flu" cold tablet Drix, Osmosis Jones suspects that there is more going on than just a simple flu. Meanwhile, Mayor Phlegmming is much more interested in his re-election than in real problems and tries to keep trouble down. So, it is up only to Drix and Os to stop the "red death" from making Shane an orphan.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Thrax's claw is on his left hand. However when he thrusts his right hand up out of the cup of medicinal alcohol his claw is now there instead.

      • After Frank gets sick and Shane gets there, her uncle says "I'm her neice" to the person. (Response: The "I'm her neice" bit is a joke.)

      • In the TV show Ozzy & Drix whenever a cell leaves the body tt coagulates (they get stiff and shrivel up) but in the film Ozzy is launched out of frank by Drix's arm cannon to stop Thrax and Ozzy is outside for a long time and doesn't even start to coagulate. (Response: He and Thrax were in Shame's eye, and there was water because she was crying.)

      • Osmosis Jones was afraid of getting stabbed in the neck, but he's so stretchy and has no bones and all that stuff; that doesn't make any sense. Also, the guy who was running for new mayor accidentally broke that little boy in that commercial's neck (if you look closely at him afterwards, you can tell).

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Thrax: (Coming out of Frank's subconcious area) Whew. This cat was sick before I even got here!

      • Ozzy: (After leaving the club) Next time.. I'll be the bad cop.
        Drix: Er.. you are a bad cop.

      • Radio: Thrax was last seen heading for Frank's uvula.
        Ozzy: Uvula? What the heck's a uvula?
        Drix: It's that little dangly thing that hangs down in Frank's...
        Ozzy: (Interrupting) Boxer shorts, I'm on it.
        (Turns corner sharply towards "rectum")
        Drix: Not that dangly thing! The dangly thing in his throat!
        Ozzy: Oh... I knew that.
        (Does a U-turn and causes an accident)
