Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (6)

    • When Twist said that Marina could be a chef, the giant chef hat appeared out of nowhere. After Marina said being a chef isn't right for her, the hat disappeared suddenly.

    • Marina was able to change her clothes so quickly when Kiki, Twist, and Shout were suggesting career options for her.

    • If Marina had known earlier in the episode what she wanted to be after graduation, then the Fresh Beat Band would've separated for sure.

    • When Marina was trying to be a scientist, she was wearing leggings that completely cover her legs.

    • The Fresh Beats are seen in new outfits. Twist's hoodie has a blue line on the shoulders. Shout has brown pants with an orange top. Kiki has a solid pink jacket with white leggings. Marina's new dress looks similar to Sgt Pepper, and she has capri leggings.

    • Goof: When Marina was trying out the chemicals while trying to be a scientist, her hair was loose. She should've tied her hair back in a ponytail. It's dangerous to work with chemicals if your long hair is loose.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Marina: I wanna be a drummer in a band with a kickin' guitarist named Kiki, a cool keyboard-player named Shout, and a sweet MC called Twist!

    • Marina: (in a scuba suit with a surfboard) Cowabunga! (gets splashed by a wave) Yeah, I don't think a surfer is what I wanna be either
      (Back in her dress, Marina runs back to Kiki, Twist, and Shout)
      Twist: We'll help you figure out what you wanna be
      Marina: Thanks, guys
      Kiki: Sure! I mean that's why you've got friends like us!

    • Marina: That's great, Shout. My turn! I'd love to be a uh....Oh, I'd really, really love to be a uh....a uh.... (realizes that she's stuck) I don't know what I want to be

    • Marina: We're all set and ready to play our graduation song. I'm so excited!

    • Marina: (rapidly in excitement) One, two, three , four!
      (The Fresh Beats play their graduation song. But Marina plays the song very rapidly, and her bandmates can't keep up. She plays the song in a fast tempo until Kiki, Twist, and Shout stop her)
      Twist: Whoa on the tempo. That's a little fast
      Kiki: Yeah, the speed of the music should be fast but not quite that fast
      Marina: Sorry, guys. I guess I'm just really excited to graduate. Let me try it again (taps her drumsticks four times and plays the song a little slower)

    • Reed: A what, Marina?
      Marina: Well, I haven't decided yet, but whatever it is, it's going to be great

    • Twist: We'll help you figure out what you want to be
      : Thanks, guys.
      Kiki:Sure! I mean that's why you've got friends like us!
      (The song "A Friend Like You" begins)
      Shout: You're my friend, and you'll always be. I'll hang with you anywhere you see
      Kiki: When the say is mean and you're unhappy,...
      All:...all you've gotta do is think of me! I've been looking for a friend like you. So-o-omeone to make each day brand new and share the sun, yeah, its blue sky too. I've been looking for a friend like you. I, I've been looking for a friend like you!
      Kiki: You're the smile that makes time fly by. You make me laugh. You don't have to try.
      Shout: When I'm feeling low and I want to cry... cheer-me-up thought is you and I! I've been looking for a friend like you. So-o-omeone to make each day brand new and share the fun in the sun even if a rainy day comes. Yeah, fun in the sun.
      Twist: Well, a rainy day comes just like any other one. But it don't bring me down 'cause you're around. Colors of the rainbow singing hello, and we're chilling 'cause we're thrilling as we go, go, go. Kick it here into outer space. 'Cause everywhere's a great place. Everyone's a great race. And everyday there's always something to do, and you know every something's better with a friend like you!
      All: I'm so glad I've got a friend like you. So-o-omeone to make each day brand new and share the sun, yeah, its blue sky too. I'm so glad I've got a friend like you. I, I know. Yeah, its blue sky too. I'm so glad I've got a friend like you. I, I'm so glad I've got a FRIEND LIKE YOU!
      (After the song)
      Kiki: So what'd you think, Marina?
      (Kiki, Twist, and Shout realize that Marina has disappeared)
      Kiki: Marina?
      (Marina comes out of a pile of turquoise and purple clothes that she'd been wearing during the song. She looks overwhelmed. Twist turns to her and gives a shriek of surprise)
      Marina: Thanks for trying to help guys. Hey, I think it worked. I know what I want to be.
      Kiki, Twist, & Shout:
      Marina: I want to be a giant smoothie! (realizes what she'd just said) Oh, no, wait. I'm just thirsty (giggles)

  • NOTES (6)

    • Starting with this episode, Marina will be driving the Fresh Beats' car more often.

    • Careers Marina tried:
      Construction worker
      Lots of other careers Marina wasn't seen doing (This can be seen when she comes out of the pile of purple and turquoise occupation clothes)

      Marina tried the mailwoman, cowgirl, and scientist careers during the song A Friend Like You along with the unknown careers.

      Reasons these careers aren't right for Marina:
      The chef's hat was way too big, leaving only her feet visible.
      The jackhammer was very dangerous, and she almost got hurt when she fell off.
      She didn't seem to like having to get wet all the time when she got splashed by a wave.
      The mail in the mailbox flew right out through the slot.
      She accidentally lassoed her friends.
      The chemicals she tried turned into a gyser and began to splatter all around.

    • The Fresh Beats almost split up after this episode because Kiki, Twist, and Shout wanted to be different things, which would've resulted in them being in different places. Well, Marina didn't know what she wanted to do until she learned that she really wanted to be with the Fresh Beat Band. That's what saved the band from separation.

    • Because of the Fresh Beats graduating music school, this is Miss Piccolo's last appearance.

    • Starting with this episode, some new songs have been introduced, replacing some of the songs from seasons 1 and 2. Plus the song Reach For the Sky was first heard in this episode. The songs Here We Go and A Friend Like You are replacements of the songs Get Up and Go Go and Friends Give Friends A Hand.

    • This is Tara Perry's first episode as Marina. Shayna Rose left the show to get married and pursue other opportunites.
