Aired Friday 8:30 PM May 12, 2006 on Cartoon Network



  • Trivia

    • Listen Closely: In the episode, "Fear and Loathing in Endsville," when Grim was being stabbed by the scorpion, listen to the way Grim yells. In the episode, "Dumb-Dumbs and Dragons," when the episode starts he yells the same exact way while Hoss Delgado was punching him.

    • Look Hard:

      As Billy, Mandy and Grim emerge from the portal to enter the medieval world they pass a tree with a poster with a face that looks like Billy's saying: "WANTED: EVLE WIZARD".

    • Listen Closely:

      After Grim and Dracula argue, Grim is walking and the sand person comes up. Listen carefully because he says raggle-fraggle- that is what Harold disguised as the sasquatch says in the episode Here Thar Be Dwarves!

  • Quotes

    • Dracula: Look! Dracula sees a limo.
      Grim: That's a cactus.
      Dracula: You can't tell Dracula what is and what ain't a limo!!
      Grim: Fine, go get the limo.
      Dracula: (sitting on cactus) This limo hurt Dracula's butt!

    • (Grim walks into the house)
      Billy: Hey, Grim! How was your...
      Grim: I don't want to talk about it.

    • Mandy: We have a job for you.
      Boss: (wearing a helmet) Yeah?
      Mandy: We want you to change this pathetic idiot of a boy (Billy appears on the screen hitting himself on the head with a hammer) into a pathetic dragon slayer.
      Boss: I have a strict policy- I don't work with idiots.
      Mandy: Okay. I'll cut you a deal. You train Billy to last one minute against a dragon and you can beat the snot out of Grim anytime you want.
      Boss: Alright. (takes off helmet)
      Billy: Whoa, Mandy, that looks like...
      Mandy: Don't remind me.

    • Singer: Through miles of sand and bleached white dirt
      They shambled on 'til their ankles hurt.
      The buzzards sailed high overhead
      Ridin' on currents of thick, hot dread.
      And the sun burned their hearts like an angry woman,
      It scorched their souls like an angry woman,
      Oh, like an angry woman.

      Then from the west blew a breeze of luck
      Eighteen wheels on a big black truck.
      An angel of mercy what was wrapped in steel
      With an unwashed man stinkin' up behind the wheel.
      The road stretched on like an angry woman,
      And the cab smelled like french fries like an angry woman,
      Phew. An angry woman.
      What's that smell?

      The sun dropped low down in the sky
      Like a pair of pants on an urban guy.
      Their stomachs cried out with a rumbling roar
      Till they just purt' near couldn't walk no more.

      They tried to eat a cactus like an angry woman,
      And scorpions chased them down like an angry woman, angry woman.

      He drove fast
      He drove far
      He busted them dunes in his big ol' car.
      The buzzards fled at the sight of him
      The sight of the one that they call Grim.
      They went over the speed limit like an angry woman,
      And they caused property damage like an angry woman,
      Oh man,
      Just like an angry woman.

    • Grim: (after being stung by the giant scorpion) Dracula...Dracula... Hurry, I'm in terrible pain. You gotta suck out the poison!

    • Billy: (admiring Hoss Delgado) Yeah, he's a true hero
      Grim: Bah, he's no hero. That term has been so twisted that nobody even knows what it means anymore.
      Irwin: Hey, Billy! Guess what, yo? My mom says it's safe for you to sleep over now! I'm over my special problem, yo!
      Billy: You're a hero!
      Harold: (grunts) I just ate 12 pizzas without throwing up!
      Billy: You're a hero!
      Skarr: I just popped a huge puss-filled pimple on my back!
      Billy: You're a hero!

    • Mandy: Ordinary morality is for ordinary people.

    • Dracula: Ahh, that was some mighty fine fried fish!
      Grim: Yes it was, Dracula. Yes it was.
      Waitress: Your check, gentlemen.
      Dracula: Thank you, baby.
      Grim: How much do I owe?
      Dracula: Oh no no no, this one on Dracula.
      Grim: Thanks Dracula.
      Dracula: Dracula paying up front so we can get going.
      Grim: What a swell guy.
      Dracula: (sneaks away from Grim)
      (at Billy's house)
      Billy: Hey Grim, how was -
      Grim: I don't wanna talk about it...

    • Boss: (at a Chinese take-out) Egg rolls! Half off today only! Half off! Hello kind sir, would you like to come in and try our new egg rolls.

      Boss: Man, that guy was ugly!

    • Killdozer: Billy, you saved my life, you're my hero!
      Billy: Hero? Do you mean it? Mandy, Grim, I'm a hero! I'm a hero!
      Mandy: You're now hero, Billy. You're just a boob that got lucky. So where did Boss go to, Grim?
      Grim: I don't know Mandy, the scythe could have completely obliterated him, or zapped him into some freaky dimension.

    • Giant Scorpion: My babies!
      Dracula: Well, maybe if you didn't make your babies so delicious, Dracula wouldn't have had to eat 'em!
