Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In the first episode, Sam is said to be from Kansas, but he has the letter N on his shirt. Sam was originally going to be from New York, but word never got to the artist, so that is why the N is there.

    • In "Down The Drain," when Twister was shooting footage of Otto in the empty pool, Twister was standing right in the middle of it as Otto passes him. But in the next shot, Twister is next to Reggie and Squid, who are on the outside of the pool looking at Otto.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • (Sam is in the pool)
      Twister: Otto, why the water next to Squid so warm?
      Otto: Sammy, you freak! You didn't!
      Sam: What? I just jumped in!
      Otto: Now I know why Stimpleton called you the "Whiz Kid"!

    • Twister: Hey, I can wipe out too. Seriously.
      Otto: Spoken like a true squid, Twister.
      Twister: I'm sick of being the squid.
      Otto: It's a tough job, but somebody has to be the squid.

    • Reggie: Hello! I'm shooting frame grabs for the Zine, remember? I got enough shots of you wiping out, Otto. Now get serious.
      Otto: My wipeouts are serious, Reggie.

    • Twister: Nice pants. Expecting snow?
      Sam: I haven't unpacked my shorts yet.
      Reggie: Where are you from?
      Sam: Kansas.
      Otto: How's the surf?
      Sam: No ocean.
      Reggie: What about snowboarding?
      Sam: Too flat.
      Reggie: Street hockey?
      Sam: If you mean Roller Hockey, yeah, they play that.
      Otto: Cool! Now we have a quad team!
      Sam: Great, What's a quad team?

    • Otto: These trucks are too loose. We need to tighten them for high speeds.
      Twister: I can't believe how much work a skateboard needs.
      Reggie: Putting stickers on your board doesn't exactly qualify as work, Squid.
      Twister: Don't call me Squid! (looks at Violet and Sam) What?

    • Sam's mom: Aw, don't be so glum, honey. Get out and make some new friends. Tell them about your good grades.
      Sam: But I was going to spend the next 11 years in front of the TV.

    • Otto: I wonder if he plays street hockey.
      Twister: Looks more like a puck than a player.

    • Sam's mom: Sam, honey, don't forget your inhaler.

    • Otto: Hey Reggie, look, a computer. Looks like you've got someone to talk nerd with.

    • Sam: Reggie.
      Reggie: Hi, Sam.
      Sam: Can I talk to you for a minute?
      Twister: You sure can't play hockey for a minute.

    • Reggie: You turned our basement into an aquarium!!!

    • Twister: Dude, that was the biggest demonstration of lameness I've ever seen!
      Reggie: You're the one who's being lame, Twister!
      Otto: Yeah, but still, I don't think Sam here is much of a hockey player.
      Sam: I stink, okay?!
      (runs off)
      Reggie: Sam, wait!
      Twister: Guess it's back to just the 3 of us.
      Reggie: A lot of good that does us, you squid!
      Twister: Stop calling me squid!
