Duncan claims that he knows that Harold got Courtney voted off last season. However, in the season one episode No Pain, No Gain, he says that he thinks Heather had something to do with it. Response: Duncan did have some time to hear from Courtney that Harold did vote her off from after the events of Are We There Yeti? to before the events of Total Drama Drama Drama Drama Island.
This episode is also tited "The Wacky Wild West".
This episode marks the third time nudity is shown in Total Drama Action. In this episode, LeShawna's butt is seen after her pants are ripped by a weather vane. Also, Heather's butt can be seen as she hangs on the same weather vane.
Goof: When the camera is zoomed out while Chris is saying the Grips will have to vote someone off, DJ is missing his utter hat while all the other members of his team have their hats on. It then appears on his head in the next scene.
This episode marks the third loss of the Killer Grips.
Running Joke: Trent seen is the confessional slapping himself in the head and saying, "Stupid! stupid!" over and over again.
Chef is becoming increasingly less tolerant of Chris' antics this season as evidenced by his actions this episode, i.e., he ties Chris to a fence post after a smart alec remark and refuses to wear an evening gown and gloves in the Gilded Chris awards ceremony.
In this episode, Duncan admits that he picks on Harold because he still holds a grudge against him from switching the votes last season, causing Courtney to get eliminated.
This is the first time we see Leshawna without her hair weave (she has an afro in this episode) in this entire series.
The final award went to Owen in this episode.
The campers not seen in the confessional for this episode were Owen, Heather and DJ.
Justin: I just found out I have a new neck modeling contract. Apparently I have excellent tendons. (stretches out neck) See? See, check it out. You like that?
Harold: Can't catch me! Can't catch me!
Owen: He's right...(panting)...I can't...(falls over and Harold backs away)
Trent: I bet you'll look really cute in it, Gwen. Utter-ly adorable!
(cuts to confessional)
Trent: Utter-ly adorable? Awwwh, stupid, stupid! I'm totally blowing it again!
DJ: (screaming) Not the electrical wires!
(zapping heard, everyone flinches)
LeShawna: Uhhh, Chris? You are gonna send someone to help DJ, right?
(scene cuts to Chris in a studio)
Chris: (reading slowly) We here at Total Drama Action, care about the health and welfare of our competitors. Furthermore, no animals were hurt in the making of this show.
(Owen has drank all the water in the squirt guns)
Chris: Owen, we needed that water for the quick draw cowboy showdown!
Chef: Don't look at me. I ain't lugging up any more water.
Owen: Sorry, I was thirsty.
Chris: Okay, new challenge.
Trent: (in Lame-o-sine after being voted) So, it really stinks that I've gotta go. I thought this season I'd go all the way, with Gwen. Things with Gwen and I were great. You know that sweet spot in the sofa? The one you spent years carving? That's how Gwen felt to me. Things got a little nuts. Okay, I got nuts. Liking Gwen made me crazy. Crazy enough to lose a million bucks. I guess the Grips are better off without me. (bangs his head against car door) Think my forehead needs a bit of time to heal.
Gwen: Trent, you're a great guy. I mean that. But this isn't working.
Trent: Is this because I offered to brand myself with a "G"?
Gwen: No. Well, yes.
Gwen: Trent, we need to talk.
Trent: Please tell me this isn't what I think it is.
Gwen: It's what you think it is.
Trent: I told you not to tell me that.
Trent: Break a leg, Gwen.
Gwen: (in the confessional) Break a leg? That's what Trent says to me when I'm about to plummet a hundred feet?
Trent: Stupid! Stupid!
(Gwem is about to go up the high board)
Gwen: Wish me luck. (walks off while everyone cheers)
Duncan: We're going to need a new captian.
Gwen: I heard that.
Trent: At least things can't get any worse. (cuts to him jumping off the high board and landing on a fence post) ...or maybe they can.
Duncan: (wearing cow udders on head) Stupid million bucks...
Chris: Love the dress, 'Chefette'. (laughs)
Chef: (ties up Chris) Maybe when I change, I'll come back and untie you. (walks away)
Chris: I can't feel my arms.
Gwen: I wasn't in on it, I swear!
Justin: Prove it.
Gwen: Fine, vote Trent off. It's gotten too weird around here. You'd be doing me a huge favor.
Owen: Great cherry cheesecake, she's bluffing!
Justin: We'll see about that, but either way, you owe us Gwen.
Gwen: (about Trent throwing challenges) It wasn't my fault, I wasn't in on it, I swear!
Justin: Why should we believe you?
Gwen: Because I just broke up with Trent.
Justin: This whole thing could be a ruse. Some strategy to make it to the final two.
Justin: Tell them what I just heard you say to Trent!
Gwen: (fakes a sneeze) Uh, sorry couldn't hear you, head cold.
Justin: Fine, I'll do it then. Trent's been purposely throwing challenges for Gwen.
Leshawna: I'd like one good reason why that punk haired, skull shirt wannabe keeps picking on poor Harold!
Duncan: You wanna know why I pick on Harold? Here's a hint: she's about yeah high, has beautiful brown hair and can tear you limb from limb! (static) No, it's not a bear, it's Courtney. Harold got Courtney booted off last season. Yep, payback's a b...(static)
LeShawna: Why is it that we have to stare at your navel all day. Put a shirt on!
Heather: Oh, right, right because we all love looking at those comquats on your mall kiosk t-shirt!
LeShawna: At least I have hair.
Heather: Your afro is so big, it has it's own gravity.
LeShawna: Oh, I'll give you gravity!
Harold: (tied with rope by Duncan from head to toe) Uhhh, I can get out of this any time! (continues to struggle)
Heather: (hanging from weather vane) Somebody better get me down now! Hello? Anyone?
(preparing to jump from high up onto horse with Beth)
Lindsay: If I go to that big beauty parlor in the sky, don't let Heather have my hair. ok?
Beth: Oh, no, never. Uhhh, can I have your hair if you die?
Lindsay: I don't think so.
Beth: Ohhh, I love horsies! Justin told me I looked like one! He's so....(uncertainly) great.
LeShawna: Back home, my peeps and I look out for each other. Harold may be small and strange but that boy is still my peep. I've got my eye on Duncan.
Harold: (enduring heat) My mad skills are leeching out of me! I can feel it. My mojo isn't sweat proof!
(LeShawna has just fallen off the weather vane and used her afro to bounce upright rather than hit the ground)
LeShawna: (to Heather) Ha! Bet you're not laughing at my hair NOW!
(the Camera zooms in to show the back of LeShawna's paints ripped open)
Chris: Ha, ha, ha! Well, I guess you showed her! And by her we mean our ENTIRE VIEWING AUDIENCE!!!
Chris: Ok, ok! You don't gotta get my dungarees all dusty!!!
(Chris is dressed as a Cowboy and talking in stereotypical Cowboy fashion)
Chris: Since there's no beatin' the heat, we're goin' west this week! There's a town meetin' at high noon. Be there, or I'll drive ya deadbeats outta town!
Lindsay: Ooh! If you're driving us out of town, can we go to the mall?
Gwen: (sees Trent getting voted off) Did you just call me in here to make me feel bad?
Justin: Can't you fan any faster?
Owen: (fanning Justin) You're hot, but I'm hotter! (Owen faints)
Harold: Ha, ha, ha, ha! I have cow boobies on top of my head!!!
This episode aired on the Cartoon Network on July 9, 2009.
Trent is voted off in this episode.
When Duncan said to Harold "What, you're gonna go all Medieval Camp on me?!?!", he's referring to a line from Pulp Fiction where Marsellus Wallace, played by Ving Rhames, told Zed he was "gonna get Medieval on his @$$".
3:10 To Yuma
At the end of the episode, Chris and Chef threw Trent into the Lame-O-Sine and called out "3:10 to Crazytown!". This is a reference to the recent Western movie 3:10 To Yuma starring Russell Crowe and Christian Bale.
Fistful of Dollars
The music that played when Chris came on in was the whistling theme from the movies made famous by Clint Eastwood as The Man with No Name back in the sixties and seventies.
