Episode Summary

Marshall is sick, feverish, and to make matters worse he uses all of his spare time working on a new money making scheme. While he feels awful, his new venture, which was doing extremely well and making profits, bottoms out.

Bizzarly, even the school develops symptoms of Marshall's infection. Some parts are too cold, others overheat, sneezes and coughs begin occurring from deep inside the school and a greenish slime extrudes from the interior, exactly like Marshall's symptoms. But why does it occur? And when will it stop?moreless

    You have to admit that this episode was kinda gross. I mean, what was with that Ms. Durst getting totally covered in that goo stuff? And poor Marshall at the end of the episode - he has to do the r word!!!!!!!!!!! (refund)Also, this was a kinda boring episode, and it\'s obvious the writers were out of ideas so they just decided to make the school cough and sneeze and stuff and yay! it\'d be a great episode. Not that it was terrible or anything - just kind of weird. No character developement or twisted Pearadyne plot. But there were some funny parts so I'll just forgive them and move on.moreless

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • When Vaughn is with Corrine and Professor Z in the science lab looking at the map he and Corrine made, you can see that Vaughn's wearing a short-sleeve uniform shirt. But when he's with Corrine, Professor Z, Josie, Lucas, and Marshall in Lucas and Marshall's room, Vaughn's wearing a long-sleeve uniform shirt. Also, when he, Corrine, and Professor Z are leaving to go to the basement, he's wearing a short-sleeve uniform shirt.

    • When everyone is in Lucas and Marshall's room, when Josie says the sneeze comes from the basement, the plug to the server is away from the desk the server is on, but in the scene where Josie unplugs it the plug and its outlet are under the table.

    • Josie says that there is a vortex in the basement. In all other episodes, the vortex is in Professor Z's office (when opened naturally, unlike in Wormhole²).

    • When everyone is in Lucas and Marshall's room, when Josie says the sneeze comes from the basement, when the sneeze shakes the school, none of the medicine viles on the wheeled cart shake.
