Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • To be honest, this was a great episode, but not the good kind of great episode.

    This episode was okay, if you ask me. I thought of One Crazy Summoner... to be more, I guess you could say, "odd." But Guess What's Coming to Dinner was a little on the right side of the bed. In One Crazy Summoner, Nigel Planter calls for Billy and Mandy's help, since he finds the love of his life, but Herfeffanie turns him down. And of course, man-to-man kissing... I don't want to say it. In Guess What's Coming to Dinner, Hoss and Eris pose as Harold and Gladys, but when Principal Goodvibes comes, Eris causes chaos from here to there.moreless
  • Is there some reason why they just NOW decided to make Principal Goodvibes into a recurring character?

    One Crazy Summoner:

    The third Nigel Planter episode in a recurring series of Harry Potter parodies. Unlike the previous two episodes, "One Crazy Summoner" doesn't directly parody the movies, but instead takes stabs as simple things like character's names, with a plot that doesn't have anything to do with Potter at all. Such examples of this include Nigel's rival, Dorko Malfly, and his ability to talk to snacks (instead of snakes). The main plot is about Nigel trying to get some girl to like him, only to be outshined by Dorko every time. Toadblatt and the Squid Hat (Weird Al) each make brief cameos, as well, including an incredibly disturbing scene where Toadblatt drinks a love potion and the two of them make out (The things this show gets away with are amazing). Overall, it was better than "The Chamber Pot of Secrets", but not as good as "Toadblatt's School of Sorcery".

    Guess What's Coming to Dinner?:

    One of the most hilarious segments in the entire series, as well as the funniest "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?" parody I've ever seen. Hoss returns, as great as he ever was. Now, previously I have referred to Eris being far to overused, appearing in episodes that would have been absolutely fine without her, but this episode utilized her perfectly. We also have the return of Principal Goodvibes, a character which needs to be used FAR more often. The running gags of this episode, the mispronunciation of his name, were great. The pure randomness of the episode was great, in fact. From the giant alien lobsters being summoned out of nowhere, with Hoss blasting the living crap out of them, to the ending where Billy's academy turns out to be a military school where he's held up to gunfire (Again, they're really pushing the censors), this was the most randomly stupid thing I've seen in my entire life. And I LOVED it.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • When Dean Toadblatt drank the love potion, he automatically falls in love with Squidsy. This would be the first time any of the characters have engaged in homosexual acts.

    • Mandy: Look, Billy, Rollington Academy is for..
      Billy: Geniuses. Which I is one of them.

      Billy's line, "Geniuses, which I is one of them" is being used out of context for one of the new summer 2006 bumpers for Cartoon Network. The summer theme focuses upon a single easily identifiable character against a red background doing and saying things at commercial breaks or at the start of a new program.

    • The relationship between Hoss and Eris is very creepy. Considering that Hoss said he was a girl in Irwin Gets a Clue.

    • Rachael MacFarlane as the voice of Eris wasn't listed in the ending credits.

      (flashes back to two giant cycloptic robots of Billy's parents destroying Endsville)
      Billy's Dad: Oh yeah. I'm still paying off that bill.

    • Hoss: So there I was, facing 12 feet poop elves.
      Principal Goodvibes: Umm, how could they be elves if they were 12 feet tall?
      Hoss: It was a leap year.
      Principal Goodvibes: But, that still doesn't explain-
      Hoss: Listen here, Mr. Goodtoaster! Are you stepping in my cornflakes?
      Principal Goodvibes: No, I was just-
      Hoss: Because let me tell you something about stepping into people's cornflakes... it's a really weird way to eat cornflakes.

      Hoss Delgado: (grabs Goodvibes) Listen up, Goodmanners. Either you reconsider our little Otis...
      Mandy: Billy.
      Billy: What?
      Hoss Delgado: Billy for you hoidy-toidy school, or I'll send you back to your mama with a jelly jar shoved up your nose.
      Goodvibes: Uh, no, I...what I meant to say was, I'd be more than happy to recommend Billy to the Rollington Academy.
      Hoss Delgado: (puts down Goodvibes) That's more like it.
      Eris: Be sure to come back anytime, Mr. Good-you're-an-idiot.

    • Principal Goodvibes: (telling Billy's IQ test results) I'm afraid Billy scored -5%.
      Hoss: What's wrong with -5?
      Goodvibes: Well, we gave the same test to a shovel and two candy bracelets, and they scored a 17.
      Hoss: You ever hunted a werewolf through the Canadian outback, Goodburger? You're lucky to come back -5% alive
      Mandy: And that has to do with...?
      Grim: I think what he's trying to say is-
      Mandy: Zip it, Aunt Pearl!
      Goodvibes: But I'm sure that if Billy studies hard and focuses on his work, he could become a very gifted and qualified... research monkey.
      Billy: Yee haw! I mean, what?!

    • Goodvibes: Why did you just hit me with a trout?
      Eris: Because the mackeral wasn't fresh.

    • Mandy: That's Eris, the Goddess of Chaos.
