Episode Summary

Dumb Luck / No Body Loves Grim
Dumb Luck: Billy seems to be having an unusual amount of bad luck, and Grim is curious as to why. It turns out that when Grim told Billy to throw salt over his shoulder for good luck, and he threw pepper instead, the bad luck snail crept into his brain, making sure that Billy suffers bad luck forever. When Grim and Mandy try to get the snail out, it won't let Billy near them. No Body Loves Grim: Billy accidentally loses Grim's body at the beach, and takes his detached head home by mistake. While Billy and Mandy search for Grim's body, Grim is mistaken for a bowling ball, a vase, and even a spittoon! Meanwhile, Grim's body is adopted by Endsville's wealthiest family, and becomes popular with upper-class citizens. When Grim finally finds his body, it won't return to him, claiming that it was illy treated under Grim's control.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • When Grim pulls the Bad Luck Snail out of Billy's brain he is smaller than Grim's finger but when he leaps onto Mandy's face he is big enough to be held in her hand.

    • Mandy: Prarie dogs take down more people each year than great white sharks.

      Great white sharks only kill two people every year.

    • In Nobody loves Grim when Grim is used as a bowlingball he's moving backwards and going forward also the bowling lane swichted places and to add to that when Grim's head hits the pin his head is unmarked but when he's hopping his head has a bunch of marks

    • Grim's head was about Billy/Mandy's size, but when it got back onto his body, about 3 of his hands could make the length. But when he hugged Billy and Mandy, I noticed 5 of his hands could make thier length!

    • At school, Everyone was wearing uniforms exept Billy and Mandy.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Billy: We're sorry, Grim...
      Mandy: Speak for yourself.

    • Grim: Billy seems to be having an unusual amount of bad luck today.
      Mandy: Maybe he caught something.

    • Grim: (scanning Billy) Just as I suspected. His brain is caught in a bad juju vortex, and his good luck matrix is in the red. This could only mean one thing; Catastrophe Snail!
      Billy: Catastrophe Snail?!
      Grim: Right in your noodle.
      Mandy: But how did it get there.
      Grim: It must have been in that restaurant when Billy spilled the salt. I told him to throw salt over his shoulder to prevent bad luck, but Billy panicked. He reached for the salt, but he grabbed the pepper. That's when the snail must have appeared on Billy's shoulder. Salt would've have fizzled that slimeball, but Billy threw pepper. And at that time, the whole place was sneezing. So that snail slipped right into Billy's ear with nobody noticing a thing. Once the Catastrophe Snail gets in your head, he plugs his shell right into brain. And once he's plugged in, mon, he'll be reprogramming your mind to have nothing but bad luck only. Dig it?
      Bad Luck Snail: I love my job!
      Grim: Yeah, mon. And if we don't pull him out soon... I guess it's fatal.
      Billy: He's messing with my head!!! A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-H!!!

    • Billy: Awww, someone make a STINKY!!

    • Billy: Sheesh! Who clamed in his chowder? (Grim and Mandy stare at him angrily) What'd I do?
      Grim: You didn't throw salt over your shoulder like I told you. So you had bad luck.
      Billy: Wow, science is great!

    • Grim: It's Billy the Boy Beehive. (laughing) I love it!
      Mandy: Grim, you got to help Billy.
      Grim: Tell them to buzz, Billy. They'll listen. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! I love to help, but it's none of my beeswax! (laughing)

  • NOTES (6)


    • Mandy: ...and this stupid puppy won't let go of my swimsuit.

      This is a reference to a famous Coppertone suntan oil ad of a puppy pulling at the lower half of a (very startled) little girl's swimsuit (portrayed by then young actress Jodie Foster).

    • When Grim hears the music in the saloon while Billy and Mandy are looking for his head, he says the song breaks his "Achy Breaky Heart ".

      This is a reference to the song of the same name which was a hit single for country music singer Billy Ray Cyrus.
