Chris MacClean (Host)
Beth is absent when the Grips are declared the winners of the sandcastle contest.
Goof: The door Owen uses to get out of the shark tank remains open through the rest of the surf board challenge, but the tank remains filled with water.
Running gags: In the surfboard challenge, Lindsay keeps getting thrown against the wall. Owen getting hit in the face with sticks.
Goof: Right after the show returns from the commercial break from the surf board challenge, Chris is seen with all of the castmates standing outside the lot in their teams. The team logos that float above the teams' heads are switched over to the incorrect positions.
Look Hard: When Gwen falls off the surfboard during the first challenge, she only has one foot.
Look Hard: DJ is wearing his hat with his swimsuit during the surfing contest, yet when he is running out after losing his bathing suit, it's missing and appears again in the next scene.
This episode marks the second time nudity is shown in Total Drama Action. In this episode, DJ is seen naked after the sharks manage to snag his swimming trunks.
This episode marks the first times that words such as "crap" and "sucking" are said in Total Drama Action.
This episode marks the second loss for the Killer Grips.
When Lindsay asks Owen how the prop sand castle tastes like, she calls him Omar.
Beth and Justin form an alliance in this episode.
When Chris is doing the recap, he talks about Trent and Gwen as "He was a boy and she was a girl." These are the first lines to the song Sk8er Boi by Avril Lavigne.
Running Joke: Trent doing everything nine times.
The cast members that participated in the dance off were Trent for the Grips and LeShawna for the Gaffers.
The music played during the dance off is the theme music to the movie Pulp Fiction. The song is called "Miserlou" by Dick Dale and the Delltones.
Beth, Heather, LeShawna and Trent are the only ones we don't see do the surfing challenge.
The only cast members not seen in the confessional for this episode were Duncan and LeShawna.
Chris: Yes, campers. We are actually back at your old stomping grounds. Total Drama Island. If you need to take a moment and reminisce about the great times you had here. (all the campers burst out laughing) Fine. We'll skip the good mermories montage.
Chris: Your first challenge. Hang ten this deck into the big blue, without swallowing tail in the soup.
LeShawna: What did you just ask me to do?!
Trent: He means, whoever stays on the surfboard the longest, wins.
(Beth jumps onto Justin and grabs his head)
Beth: Holy crap! I love your hair!
Harold: The Hawaiian themed party was wildly entertaining! We ate poi with pineapple. What's poi, you ask? Poi is a Hawaiian super food from the root of the tarot. It's vitamin rich and hypoallergenic, making it the world's most effective substitute for breast milk.
Gwen: At least his obsession of the number nine is more creepy than his obsession of me.
Duncan: Five letters in Trent and four letters in Gwen, put them together and you get...
Gwen: Nine! Trent can't be doing things nine times because of me.
DJ: (referring to LeShawna's dancing) I think I know what her nickname back home really is: La-Bamba!
Heather: Prima Ballerin-NO!
Harold: Two words: fun-key! What? I liked it!
Trent: The thing is, if Gwen wants to win, why is it unethical for me to help her? I'm Trent first and a Killer Grip second. (pauses) Oh, can we erase that? Confession might be good for the soul. It's not so good for the team work.
Heather: Why'd you bother sending us out to get firewood?
Chris: I needed some alone time. (shows his hands to cast) You think these hands manicure themselves?
Justin: Little Trent mans up. Wow! Even I had goose bumps and there wasn't a mirror for miles!
Owen: Chris actually told us the truth for once?! (laughs) What's next? Being treated with actual respect?
Gwen: (after getting hit in head by a seagull) Ahh, sky rat!! Get it off! Get it out!
Beth: Did you ever notice Trent's a little weird?
Lindsay: Did you say Tyler's here? That's amazing!
Beth: Ok, Linds, Tyler is not in the game any more.
Lindsay: Oh, right. I must have a dental block about the whole thing.
(Beth backs away slowly)
Harold: Mad surfing skills, activate!!
Lindsay: (dressed in swimsuit for beach setting and reacting to excessive air conditioning) When did you guys move the beach to Antarctica?
Justin: Let's just say I'll do anything to win. ANYTHING!!! Oooh, Beth! I love it! I was thinking Beth, it could be really good for US... If we were in an alliance...
(camera switches to Chris MacClean in the monitoring room)
Chris: Wow! Dude is as CRAFTY as he is GOOD LOOKING! Maybe we're related. Ha ha ha! He wishes!
(we see Justin on the monitor who has just heard Chris' comment)
Justin: Uhhh... No, Chris.... No, I don't!
Chris: Poor delusional guy could never even swim in my gene pool! More importantly, tune in next time to watch more ME! And a few minutes of Justin. On TOTAL, DRAMA, ACTION! Which one of you geniuses left the two-way mike on?!?!?!
Beth: If only making friends with a guys as gorgeous as Justin was as easy as making these bracelets. (bracelet in Beth's hands flies apart moments later)
(Gwen has just left after hearing more about Trent's obsession with the number nine)
Trent: What am I doing wrong?
Owen: Getting in her way! Like I said before, the girl likes winning!
Trent: You know Owen, sometimes you're really smart!
(Owen lets out a loud fart)
Owen: Me like beans!!!
Chris: Break time! Union rules!
Chris: Not you, shark bait!
(DJ's swimsuit gets bitten off by one of the sharks and he runs off)
Chef: The human body is a beautiful thing! You don't NEED a suit!
Justin: Aren't you eating?
Lindsay: When you can gorge your soul on essence de beau hunk, who needs food?
Harold: I wish Chef would let me in the kitchen. I got me some mad culinary skills.
Heather: Do you mind? I was talking to my slop!

When Chris is naming off all the dances, they are all the dances seen in a certain scene in The Blues Brothers, an R-rated comedy movie starring Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi.
Beach Blanket Bingo
The title is a parody of the beach themed film Beach Blanket Bingo, a sixties movie starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Finicello.
During the scene where Chris mentioned that legal hadn't cleared the tie-breaker, we hear a car horn honk "Dixie" and an orange car with a number 01 on the door jump off a cliff and hit a crash test dummy under a rock. The General Lee was the Duke Boys' car in The Dukes of Hazzard, a comedy action/adventure series that aired from 1979 to 1985
