Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Justin: In the meantime, our sci-fi movie scene players are going to come up and perform one the greatest alien scenes of all time: E.T. raids the refrigerator!

    • Alex: (about her leaving the magic portal open) But it gets so stuffy in here. Probably our lair is inside a freezer, where you don't throw out vegetables until they start growing other vegetables.
      Jerry: Hey. We haven't paid for mushrooms in over ten years!

    • (After the bug bites Jerry, it falls to the ground. Alex looks at it)
      Alex: It's dead! (She drops the book on it) Now it's a stain!

    • (about Justin's banquet)
      Alex: Yeah, I don't need to know when it is because I'm busy.
      Justin: Um, no. I checked your calender, and you don't have any plans for the next thirty years.
      Alex: Ha! I don't have a calender.
      Justin: Ha! People who don't have calenders, also don't have plans. (celebrates in a "in your face" fashion) OWNED! You so are owned!
      (Justin leaves and Harper gives Alex a "too bad" look)
      Alex: Yeah, sometimes he wins.

    • Alex: I like the corn cut off the cob. Cobs are too heavy. It's like eighty percent of the weight you pick up that you're not even eating!

  • NOTES (1)

    • Paulie Litt returns in this episode as Joey. This is his first since the season one episode "Curb Your Dragon", where the character was originally named Frankie.

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Justin and Zeke do a reenactment of Steven Spielberg's film E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, about a young boy who befriends a alien. The film was a blockbuster hit, and is considered one of the greatest science fiction films of all time.

    • When Zeke tells Justin the alien word for soup, he says the "mama-se mama-sa mama ko-ssa" chant from the song "Soul Makossa" by Manu Dibango, which was later used in Michael Jackson's song "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'".

    • The plot of this episode is very similar to Franz Kafka's novel The Metamorphosis, about an everyday salesman who finds himself transforming into a giant insect.
