* ExpressiveMask: Dr. Drain's gas mask.



* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Literally. The show is set in a town's drain system and it isn't shy about two humor. In various episodes we've seen Stanley and Mary-Jane imagining coming out of a drain into a toilet, which is blocked by a giant butt. A baby getting changed, with the dirty diaper clearly being shown. Various forms of slime and sludge in the drainlands. But the biggest example comes in the last episode of the season, titled "The Final Flush". In a last ditch effoert to destroy the purifying plants, Dr. Drain breaks open a pipe and releases something he calls the brown tide. Even worse, Stanly has to wade through the stuff to reach the switch for an emergency drainage valve.
