But even an ousted Jimmy steals the spotlight when his patented oil-generating machine earns him a Nobel Prize for Science – then malfunctions and places everyone at the science fair in grave danger.

Miss Winifred Fowl (voice)
Cynthia Aurora "Cindy" Vortex (voice)
Liberty Danielle "Libby" Folfax (voice)
Carlton Ulysses Wheezer (voice)
Lars Svenson pronounces the letter J with a Y sound, as in "Yimmy Neutron." However, at the end of the episode he says "I can't believe you're not in jail!" but pronounces "jail" with a J sound.
A while after Carl fell asleep on Libby's lap, the bus swerved out of control because Miss Fowl was talking to the class instead of watching the road. Carl tumbled into the aisle of the bus, but he fell out of the seat behind Libby. How did this happen if Carl was sitting with Libby at the window seat?
When Lars Svenson gave Jimmy the Nobel Prize, he pinned it on Jimmy's shirt. But, all through the episode it wasn't visible on Jimmy's shirt. However, it was there when Lars snatched the award off.
Cindy: Let's ban this brain and, ease our pain!
Cindy: Superhuman balance and courage, huh? All he had was a super magnet under his lying butt! (shows the super-magnet Jimmy was wearing)
Sally:(gasps) Jimmy! I am disappointed in you!
Jimmy: What a coincidence, I'm disappointed in me, too. Why don't we discuss our mutual disappointment over a Purple Flurp?
Jimmy: (whispers) Sheen, call me as a witness.
Sheen: That's just what they're expecting, I call Carl Wheezer as a witness!! Mr. Wheezer, state your name.
Carl: Carl Wheezer?
Sheen: A likely story! Where were you on the night of the 16th?
Carl: I don't remember...
Sheen: You don't remember or you don't want to remember? Answer the question!
Carl: (timidly, slightly scared of the interrogation) Which question?
Sheen: THE QUESTION YOU DARE NOT ANSWER!
Sheen: Don't make me habeas your corpus!
Lars Svenson: (mocking) "I Can't Believe It's Not Oil." Ha! I can't believe you're not in jail!
Cindy: What a bunch of tongue dragers! If I ever get the hotts for that idiot Jimmy, just lock me up!
Libby: Don't you mean if you fall for ANY of them?
Cindy: (laughing nervously) Hehe, right! Ahah ... that's what I meant.... (slowly backs away)
Sheen: Ah, farmland. Source of the eggs for our breakfast table. And the milk we propel out our noses.
Sheen: I object!
Principal Willoughby: You're out of order!
Sheen: No, you're out of order! This court's out of order! The soda machine in the gym is out of order!
(after Jimmy rides the Bullinator 8000)
Sally: Jimmy! That was amazin'! How'd it feel?
Jimmy: (dazed) If I'm elected Miss America, I will try to bring honor to this tiara....
Jimmy: Hi there, Sally! Fancy meetin' y'all here.
Sally: Um ... I work here!
Jimmy: Right! Well, uh, fancy meetin' me'all here!
Both Jimmy and his dad were kicked out of the science fair, Jimmy for being too smart and Hugh because he, against the rules, burped the periodic table of elements.
Seen on the chalkboard in The Science Fair Affair:
"What character did John Wayne play in The Alamo?" (The answer is Colonel Davy Crockett, and below the question is a drawing of a raccoon skin cap.) Also present are the reasons why cowboys are bowlegged: 1) Chubby horses; 2) No breakfast; 3) Ill-fitting boots; 4). Did not listen to mother.
Hugh does not appear in "Foul Bull." Judy does not appear in either episode.
This episode is the first, and last, appearance of Sagebrush Sally.
We learn that Sam's last name is "Melnick."
Miss Fowl had a horse named Wheat Germ.
Sheen hates spiders.
"Foul Bull" was originally scheduled to air with "The Feud."
This episode aired at 9:00 PM on Friday, March 26, 2004.
Cindy: (storming into classroom) Jimmy Neutron, j'accuse!
This is a reference to the famous, scathing newspaper story of the same title ("J'Accuse") written by French novelist Emile Zola in comdemnation of the Dreyfus Affair in 1898, in which Jewish army captain Alfred Dreyfus was wrongfully accused of espionage because of the government's anti-Semitism.
Miss Fowl: (jumping off)
When Miss Fowl jumps off the horse in "Foul Bull," she lands the way Trinity landed in the Matrix Reloaded at the beginning and end of the movie.
Willoughby: The court finds in favor of Cindy Vortex.
Jimmy: What?! Why?!
Willoughby: Because her rhyme was so catchy. "Ban this brain and ease our pain!"
"Ease our pain" comes from the classic 1989 film Field of Dreams. The Voice says "ease his pain," urging Ray Kinsella (played by Kevin Costner) to push himself and Shoeless Joe Jackson (Ray Liotta) beyond the expected limit.
Willoughby: You're out of order.
Sheen: No, you're out of order! This court's out of order!
"I'm out of order? You're out of order! This whole damned court is out of order!" is a famous line said by Al Pacino's character, Arthur Kirkland, in the 1979 film ...And Justice for All.
Jimmy: It's the 'I Can't Believe It's Not Oil 8000'!
The "I Can't Beleive It's Not Oil 8000" is a parody of the brand "I Can't Beleive It's Not Butter."
