Grow Up
Tino thinks he can negate an embarrassment he had at his birthday party by acting like he's already an adult. However, will his mature bravado be enough to gain back his reputation, or will it only ruin his reputation even more?

  • When Tino's mom gives her gets her son a jumping jamboree & when other kids see him, they laugh & Tino is embaressed of himself. At least he didn't do it in his underwear.moreless

    My fave today, is obviously Tino. He was a funny young adult. Although, he was a bit annoying at times which made the episode a little slower.The rest were both okay & good.

    Character Grades:

    Tino - B+

    Lor - B-

    Carver - B-

    Tish - B- My honest opinion is that I think Tino should have ignored them but at least he learned a lesson that we can all relate to. Tino's mom was once again a delight to watch, especially when she tricked Tino into going somewhere geeky & pointless. It kind have backfired, but his friends turned him back to normal later on. Overall, a 8.0.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • At the pizza place, Tish's shirt briefly turns white.

    • When Mrs. Tonitini gives Tino the eggs (this is when he's all 'grown up') the camera switches to Mrs. Tonitini and then returns to Tino. There is around less than a minute switch and it appears that Tino is already done his eggs. Is it even possible to eat your like 3 eggs in less than a minute without choking yourself or having your mouth full?

    • Tino gets overly excited about a Jumping Jamboree with a giant clown on top. In a later episode we learn that just the sight of a clown scares him yet here he has no problem with jumping around inside of a giant clown.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Tino's Mom: Lemme get this straight. You want me to kidnap my own son?
      Lor: Well, yeah.
      Carver: That's pretty much it.
      Tish: If you don't mind.
      Tino's Mom: I'm okay with that.

    • (Tino's new employees talk amongst themselves)
      Employee 1: Hey, does this guy seem a little... young?
      Employee 2: These internet guys are all real young. My last boss didn't even have all his teeth in, yet.

    • Tino: (as he fires his friends) Please accept these gold watches as tokens of my appreciation for your long minutes of service. Now, kindly vacate the premises ASAP.
      Lor: "ASAP?" That put my cat to sleep.

    • Lor: I say we hit Funville for a quick game of pool!
      Tino: I can't shoot pool! My gawdurn vasitis is acting up!

    • Tino's Mom: Good morning (notices Tino is dressed up in a suit) um... sir?
      Tino: Mornin, doll.
      Tino's Mom: Does this have to do with the Jumpin' Jamboree yesterday?
      Tino: (chuckles) No. That was an excellent amusement... for the young folks, but hardly suitable for an adult myself. I'm much too old for fun.

    • Tino: Okay, I blew it. When those kids get back to school Monday, my little kid reputation will spread like fungus in a locker room. I'm gonna be the top goon of middle school instead of that girl who stuffs her hair in her ears and eats notebook paper.

    • Tino: (about his mom's Vernal Equinox" party) It's like Christmas only warmer and there's no TV specials.

    • Lor: (about climbing a rock-climbing wall) C'mon Tino!
      Tino: Uh-uh, sorry, doc says I shouldn't exert myself. Bum ticker, y'know.
