Joan Lin appears in this episode even though she has no dialogue.
Goof: Just after Will makes her "buster" remark to Phobos and attacks, her skirt turns pink instead of blue.
Cornelia: Come on, Hay Lin. I like art as much as the next truly fashionable person, but not enough to skip lunch. (looks at food) Okay, maybe this lunch. But you're weirding me out staring at that book!
Irma: At least blink once in a while. All the cool kids do!
Blunk: Hurry, Guardians! Mama in danger!
Hay Lin: Hay Lin in danger. Ditching my boyfriend and leaving him with my parents…? Not good karma!
Phobos: You've lost every battle since my return.
Will: A streak we'll break tonight, buster!
Will: It's been a long day!
Chen Lin: And what, they don't have phones in the land of our ancestors?
Hay Lin: Oh, uh… I forgot to tell you, Dad. Grandma did call. When you and Mom were… out.
Chen Lin: What? When? What did she say?
Hay Lin: She's fine. But-but she's… in a small mountain village where there's not much… um--phonage.
Hay Lin: Ugh! I am beyond beat. Since Phobos' Halloween coming-out party, it feels like we've been fighting 24/7.
Taranee: Except for school, we kind of have.
Irma: The creep never gets tired! He's like the triple-espresso of evil.
Before the US premiere on December 9, 2006 on Toon Disney, this episode aired in the UK on November 15, 2006 on Jetix.
The poem read by Taranee is Kubla Khan, or a Vision in a Dream by English poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
Phobos: I love the smell of despair in the morning.
This is an homage to one of the most famous lines in movie history: "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" from Apocalypse Now.
