Alan: Can I talk to you about something personal?.

Skylar: No.

Alan: Thanks.

Alan: Even though you lost your powers, you're still a hero.
Skylar: You really think so?

Alan: No! You're useless! I'm just saying that to get you to do what I want!

Skylar: You're really bad at asking for help.

Kaz: ... But don't panic, because the way I figure it, at this rate, in about an hour, you'll be... um, dead years old.

Kaz: We need Brain Matter! Where is he?
Horace: At the airport. His car has been in long term parking the whole time he's been frozen. Apparently he owes sixty-five thousand dollars!

4-year-old Oliver: Thanks for saving me Kaz, but you need to change me.

Kaz: No problem. Horace and I are on it.

4-year-old Oliver: No, I need you to CHANGE me. I'm not potty trained.

Horace: Horace Diaz does not stick his head in the sand. Not with this head of hair. But he does take the coward's way out whenever possible. Good talk!


  • Whenever Alan becomes scared he morphs into different animals.
  • Kaz uses Alan as his biology assignment.
  • Brain Matter no longer turns into the Brain Eating Monster. He has new powers he obtained using a serum, but they don't seem to work properly all of the time.
  • Brain Matter's car was parked out the front of the airport while he was frozen.
  • When Oliver turns into an old man, he says that he looks like his father.
  • Oliver's actor, Jake Short, hit puberty.
