Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • April: What, you may ask yourself, is a mild mannered antique shop proprietor doing dressed like a finalist in the Miss Primitive Universe Pageant. As you may have guessed, this isn't exactly downtown New York City, or downtown Earth, or even downtown our dimension. How did we get here? Long story. How do we get home? Well, hopefully, the answer is inside this temple. Unfortunately, the way home isn't the only thing inside this temple.

    • Leonardo: Feeling back to your old self, Raph?
      Raphael: BUGS MUST PAY!!!
      Michelangelo: Definitely back to his old self.

    • Leo: (After April jumps into the muddy river and surfaces very slowly) I think you might be taking this jungle girl thing a little to seriously.
      (April throws some mud into Leo's face)

    • Donny: (jumps into the river and covers his body with mud) Hornets and other wasps have a strong sense of smell, we need to disguise our scents.
      (April, Leo, and Raph cover their noses)
      Mikey: Do we have to disguise them that badly?

    • Casey: Phew! What died in here?! (sees April and the turtles covred in mud) Whoa. I'm gone for 2 seconds and suddenly everyone's covered in crud?

    • (After turtles break a bunch of stuff in her shop)
      April: Ok, weapons guys, hand 'em over!
      Mikey: But what if the Foot attack? Or the Girl Scouts!?

    • Raph: I'm not afraid of them(bugs), I just hate bugs.
      Mikey: You mean like the one crawling on your back?
      Raph: AH!
      Mikey: Syke!

    • Michelangelo: Don't worry, Raph. Jungle Girl will protect you.

  • NOTES (3)

    • This is the first time we see Raph's fear (or hatred as he keeps saying) of bugs. This is later shown in other episodes.

    • Prologue Narrator: April

    • The FoxBox had a blooper of this episode made when April asks the Turtles to help out with the cleaning of her store. She calls Donatello "Mike," and he corrects her. Mikey then says that they may need intialized belt buckles, making a reference to the 80s-90s cartoon.


    • Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

    • Phil Collins

      Some of the songs used in this episode are direct homages/parodies of music heard from Phil Collins.

    • Predator

      In Predator, the characters covered themselves in mud to hide their scent from the creatures. April and the Turtles did that here to hide their scents from the insects.

    • Rambo

      When April rises out of the mud, she does it in the same manner Sylvester Stallone did in the action film Rambo.

    • No speaker: No quote
      April's uncle is named August. April and August are two different kinds of months.

    • Aliens

      April: Get away from him, you witch!

      This episode makes a reference to the Aliens movie franchise, when April cries out this quote while saving Raphael from the hornet queen- a reference to the famous quote made by Sigourney Weaver's character in the movie, Aliens, when saving a little girl from the alien queen: "Get away from her, you bitch!"
