  • Another superb episode

    Rico the Penguin is known for being helpful for coughing up random items, but today a zoo keeper gives him de-regurgitating medicine, normally this wouldn't be a problem, except that Rico has a time bomb in his stomach. Again, a superb episode. I liked/laughed at Skipper spying on Alice, "PENGUINS NEVER SLEEP!", Rico randomly coughing up things, the robot, Mort inside Rico, and the ending. My score is lower because it was boring in some of the scenes. Also, the penguins saying goodbye to Rico when the bomb was about to explode was a little depressing. Overall, a superb episode of POM. 9/10moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • This episode reveals that Rico is mushy-love sensitive but yet he's in love with a doll.

    • If the bomb exploded in Rico, and Mort was trying to disable it, wouldn't Mort die too? And if so, why weren't Maurice or Julien afraid?

    • When you first see Julien and the lemurs driving up in Alice's cart, it is gigantic. Big enough to dive over the penguins and their car with plenty of clearance. But when you see the two cars next to each other the cart is no where near big enough to drive over the penguin's car.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Maurice: (After Kowalski put Mort inside Rico) That birds gone carnivore!
      Julien: Quick, we must flee! Maurice, distract them by being eaten!

    • Kowalski: 22 minutes, 46 seconds left to go.
      Skipper: Than we have 22 minutes, and 45 seconds to get that bomb out of our buddy`s tummy.

    • Skipper: There's more than one way to make a penguin puke his guts out.
      Private: How many?
      Skipper: 17. Just don`t ever ask to see number 12.

    • Alice: (Seeing Rico gagging) That is just disturbing!

    • King Julien: (referring to zoo tourist robot guy being destroyed) He was the only one who truly appreciated my bottom.
      (The arm of the tourist robot falls from the sky and points at Julien's bottom)
      King Julien: (smiles) Hey, hey! He's still loving my booty!

    • Kowalski: (referring to the number twelve stew) Two scoops of squirrel lint, a dash of baboon spit, one hippo toenail, some used kitty litter and anything we could find in the monkey cages...(cringes) Whoa, mama!

    • Skipper: Sorry Rico..Looks like game over. I never though it would end this way, but..I want you to know I love you, you crazy knuckle head!
      Kowalski: I also love you in the same way expressed previously..dude!
      Private: (runs up to Rico and hugs him) I love you too Rico!
      Mort: (inside Rico) And I LOVE this popcorn! It's a little wet though.

    • Skipper: Well how close are we to shrink ray technology?
      Kowalski: Seven hundred years.
      Skipper: (Knocks over shrink ray) CURSE YOU SHRINK RAY!
      Kowalski: Um, make that seven hundred and twelve.

    • Skipper: Awfully cheery for someone carrying a suspicious human-shaped sack, wouldn't you say?
      Rico: (nods)
      Private: I dunno Skipper, sometimes a good whistle makes me feel like a pretty little butterfly! (does a little dance)
      Rico: (gags)
      Skipper: Can the sweet talk, Private. You know Rico has gooey love mush sensitivity.


    • Skipper: (sadly)I know I'm not good with words Rico, and uh, well neither are you, really, but I just wanna say.. you are my brother!
      Kowalski: (wipes tear from eye) That's.. poetry, Skipper.
      Private: Where ever the sun lay softly it's head, there whither land whisper: Rico, Rico.

      Kowalski: (ready to cry) Okay, okay now THAT's poetry! (cries)

  • NOTES (3)


    • When Rico had to drink up the stew called number twelve in an effort to make him spew up again, the three other penguins posed as See No Evil, Speak No Evil and Hear No Evil as the icon Three No Evil Monkeys. Kowalski covered his ear canals (Hear No Evil), Skipper covered his eyes (See No Evil), and Private covered his beak (Speak No Evil.)

    • Carnage of the Penguins

      The title of the nature documentary Skipper plays is an allusion to the popular theatrical documentary called 'March of the Penguins'.

    • Episode Title: All Choked Up

      This is a reference to the song from the musical Grease of the same title.
