Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • I'm talking about Everything Breaks!

    Everything Breaks: Billy does some hilarious destructive things, like using a jack hammer to make a hole in the floor of his room, which he falls down, throws a bowl of cereal out of the window, which explodes. Here's the quote of it:

    Billy: (Looks at bowl of oatmeal) This isn't pancakes! (throws bowl out window, bowl explodes)

    Billy's Dad: (shouting) Billy! Are you nuts or just crazy?!

    Billy: Is that a trick question?

    Billy also drives the school bus and floods the school. That is one o0f the best episodes of the grim adventures of billy and mandy that i have seen. lolmoreless
  • This episode's okay

    I like this episodes. But to me, the episode 'Everything Breaks' was a weird episode. Billy's therapist has such a weird voice by the way. Billy went around the city and the whole town is angry at him. Mandy then orders Lord Pain to have Billy keep destroying things until he's sick of it. Sometimes, it seems Billy never gets sick of breaking things. In 'The Show That Dare Not Speak its Name', that was a fun episode, man! Billy is bored through the beginning of the episode. He then digs in Grim's trunk and finds a magical rubix cube and unleashes Pinface. Pinface then throws a house party in the house. Grim tells the kids about how he met Pinface. Also, Pinface traps Grim in the Netherworld. Grim is then seen with Pinface's sister.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • As the episode starts and you see Billy watching television listen carefully. You will hear Hector talking from the Evil Con Carne episode "Gridlocked and Loaded".

    • When Billy is recounting his childhood to the therapist, during the flashback scene Billy's dad is shown reading a newspaper named "Endville Gazette". The town is called Endsville, not Endville.

    • Near the end of Wishbones, Grim uses the last wish to wish that Billy and Mandy never found the wish-granting skull, but in The Show that Dare Not Speaks Its Name, Billy mentions the skull which he should have no memory of.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • (Lord Pain is showing Billy what is happening at his house, where neighbors are complaining about Billy)

    • Billy: Bend over and let me ride your humps!
      Grim: I can't. I have to meet someone on the Internet who paid big bucks for this embarrassing photo I took of your dad. (holds up a picture of Harold) So you're just gonna have to play by yourself till I get back.
      Billy: Can I--
      Grim: (interrupting) No! You can't go digging in my magical trunk for something to play with.

  • NOTES (11)


    • Character: Pinface

      He is a reference to Hellraiser, who has white skin and acupuncture pins sticking out of his head.

    • Pinface: Can you hear me now? (later) How about now? Good.

      This is a reference to the old Verizon commericals where a man went around saying "Can you hear me now? Good."

    • Grim: I told you to keep your hands off the junk in my trunk!

      This, and a line Billy said prior to it ("Let me ride your humps!"), might be a reference to the popular Black Eyed Peas song "My Humps."

    • The Sprint Commercials

      When Pinface popped up in places with a cell phone saying "Can you hear me, now?" almost like the Sprint commercials on TV.

    • Princess Peach

      When looking in the mirror, Billy's princess outfit is similar to the Princess Peach's from "Super Mario" games.

    • Pinface: Great Googly Moogly!

      This is the catchphrase used by The Ferocious Beast on the imaginative children's series Maggie and the Ferocious Beast.

    • Character: Pinface

      He is a reference to the cenobite Pinhead from the Hellraiser horror movies based upon Clive Barker's novels, and the rubix cube puzzle cube is a parody of the Puzzle Box which opens the gateway to the Netherworld.

    • Look Hard:

      You can see three monsters slam cans against their heads. This was done in the movie "Animal House".

    • Goodvibes: Sweet Mother-of-Pearl!

      This is Mr. Krabs' favorite catchphrase from Spongebob Squarepants.
