      • (Looking for her catalogue)
        Mitzi: (calling out) Hima, did you take the one pleasure in Mommy's life that doesn't involve a detachable shower head?

      • Principal Ench: You know, I'm beginning to believe I chose the wrong hobby.
        Miss Polly: (in a superhero costume) Don't worry, Ench-Man. Help has arrived.
        Principal Ench: Hello, Miss Polly. I didn't know you were here. AAAAHHHH!!! What are you doing out of class, and why are you dressing like that?!
        Miss Polly: I don't know what you're talking about, I'm not Miss Polly. Armed with courage and deadly buns of steel, I am the Green Leopard!
        Principal Ench: But I already have a sidekick.
        Miss Polly: I was thinking more like of villain-turned-begrudging ally/love interest.
        Principal Ench: I have that too!
        Miss Anderson: (another costume) Meow! Never fear, Principal Ench--I mean, sorry, Ench-Man! Your real partner and romantic interest is here! No criminal can escape from the Pink Pussy!
        Principal Ench: Oh, yeah, the censors are gonna love that one.

      • Ench-Man: Aaah! This is horrible. I feel like lice in a lunchlady's hairnet.

      • Ench-Man: Here I come to save the... (crashes through the wall) I really need to work on those entrances.

    • NOTES (3)

      • FUNimation's adaptation of Shin Chan premiered as a Test Run in late August of 2006 during Saturdays and week nights on Adult Swim. The six episodes aired were compiled by mixing and matching vignettes from the fourteen year run of the series and redubbing them with an American voice cast. None of the episodes used were prior to the year 1995, although the new written dialogue reflected current pop cultural references and events. Only one of the vignettes was digitally animated. The Test Run proved to be a success, and as a result, Adult Swim ordered a complete first season.

      • Safe as a Dry Hump is the first episode of the Test Run of FUNimation's adaptation of Shin Chan, and the first episode overall.

      • Although this was the first episode aired during the Test Run, it was the third produced. This makes the Ench-man segments disjointed because they refer back to events which occurred during "Ench-man Begins!" from the second episode.

        Significant out-of-order events: Penny explains that Shin said Ench-man came over and changed Shin's sister Hima's diaper. Hiro says that Ench-man saw his wife beat him. These events actually happened in Episode 2.
