This episode features Sponge saying "I'm pissed off because I'm not as smart as I thought I was." This marks the first, and possibly only time, a comment close to a swear word was used in a Nickelodeon show.
Ug accuses Budnick of selling him the aftershave...but he never paid budnick for it!!!
At the beginning of the episode, Budnick is thumbing through an issue of the adult magazine "Playpen".
Ug: Hey, hey, hey! I may be blue, but I know a giraffe's tongue is. . . black.
Ug: No, sorry honey, I can't see you tonight. Because I'm blue. No, not sad blue. blue blue. toilet bowl blue!
Ug: I don't have to be fair, I'm a counselor!
Ug: What was in that junk?
Budnick: Mouthwash, cologne from magazine ads.
Ug: What else?
Budnick: Blue tie-dye...
(Later, when the campers are on the phone.)
Radio Announcer: What color is a giraffe's tongue?
Sponge: My friends say it's black.
Radio Announcer: Are you sure you want to trust your friends?
Radio Announcer: Congratulations! You've just won $1000.
(Ug gets on the phone.)
Ug: My name is Ug. I'm the kids' counselor. I'll be taking the money because they made me blue.
Radio Announcer: You've just won $1000 dollars. How can you be sad?
Ug: No, no, not "sad" blue! "Blue" blue. "Toilet-bowl" blue.
Michael: There's two types of questions in this world, guy questions and girl questions. Guy questions are things you know, like how tall the Empire State Building is.
Sponge: 102 stories
Michael: Or how fast an ostrich runs.
Sponge: 27 miles per hour.
Michael: Now, girl questions, well, they're everything else in this world.
Budnick: Y'know, there's more to life than being smart.
Sponge: Like what?
Michael: Like winning money by being smart!
Donkeylips: I love this guy! He once did a whole show butt-naked!
Sponge: How could you tell? It's radio!
