- Banana Joe frequently takes off his peel, sometimes even swinging it around, even though many other occasions make it clear that it's the banana equivalent of stripping and/or streakingnote . It was even in a promo and mentioned in "The Butterfly":
Miss Simian: Joseph, we've been here before. When is it appropriate to take your skin off?
Banana Joe: Uh...Christmas!
- The word "nipples" is said numerous timeslike , a word Adventure Time was not allowed to say despite being higher rated (TV-PG) and on the same network.
- In a rather literal example, a recurring background character (for instance, in the line at the beginning of "The Pony") appears to be◊ an anthropomorphic wad of feces.
- The "baby sitter" Richard found online and almost hired is depicted as a literal slimeballnote who wants to sit on children. His name on the concept art is even "Albert the Pervert◊".
- The plot for the episode seemed like it was about a ménage à trois or exploring the possibility of a polygamous relationship and, later, infidelity.
Darwin: Three best friends? Won't that be a bit... weird?
Gumball: It's only weird if we make it weird. Do you find it weird?
Darwin: Not if you don't.
- At the beginning of the episode, Gumball and Darwin both sit on their couch lifelessly flicking through TV channels and eating junk food with red-rimmed eyes for the entire scene. It's clearly because they are sleep-deprived, but their conversation blatantly makes it look like they're stoned.
Darwin: Can you think of any better way to spend our lives?
Gumball: Dude...I can't even think. Is my heart still beating?
(Darwin feels for a pulse. Six seconds pass before Gumball's heart starts beating again.)
- Gumball spends a good portion of the episode completely butt naked. Things get even weirder when he's about to go to school and his four-year-old sister is at eye level and looking at his exposed junk.
- Gumball receives a letter from Darwin for date in the roller coaster and at the end there are three "X"s. For Gumball this "show how extreme it will be".
- Gumball has an Imagine Spot that he and Darwin are married... and he's surrounded by cat/fish babies while Darwin comes home and yells, "I WANT MORE KIDS!" What really crosses the line with that scene is not only are they both children, but they're also both siblings through adoption.
- Gumball makes a Mustache-Sausage.
Gumball: How about a hot dog? They’re delicious! [His fake mustache falls off his face and lands on the hot dog, which he holds out to Doughnut Sheriff]
Doughnut Sheriff: [disgusted] Ughh... There’s a mustache on your sausage!
Gumball: Yeah, it’s our secret ingredient! [Gumball and Darwin wink at camera]
Doughnut Sheriff: I think I’ll go for something without hair.
- Following this metaphor, the episode becomes a bit weird when Richard starts licking the mustache-sausage and Nicole uses it to turkey-slap a man unconscious. If you listen to that scene with your eyes closed, it doesn't sound any less risqué.
- The girls (falsely) brag about who got the older boyfriend, and Carrie says "Mine is so old that he doesn't have teeth."
- Tobias apparently suggests that the guys do a blood pact. He then proceeds to try to make a wound/make himself bleed by scraping a stick on his hand.
- Another example:
Gumball: (while doing high dive to save Darwin from a girlfriend) On one hand, I create a diversion and save Darwin. On the other hand, I splash Penny and look like- *SMACK*
- When Gumball falls in the swimming pool and ends with his body fully red, steals two ice creams and put them on his chest, looking like he has pointed breasts or a cone bra.
Rocky: Hey, dude! Nice bikini!
Gumball: [alleviated] Thanks.
- Gumball and Darwin kiss off-screen accidentally and both are after so surprised, and Gumball describes it as "being run over by a unicorn". (On the season three episode, "The Name," it's revealed that they know who kissed who in that scene and don't mind that Gumball's Zack personality erased it.)
- "Pal before gals" is a play on the expression "bros before hoes".
- Richard tries to win the laziness contest by changing the TV to a shopping channel. On display is a figurine of a girl kissing a boy on the cheek, which is titled "Innocent Age Figurine Boy & Girl w/ secret object hidden by the boy".
- The premise of the episode, Carrie repeatedly possessing Gumball to eat things and him trying to learn to turn her down, seems a bit strange if you think about it. The official episode descriptions for "The Ghost" didn't sound like it belongs to a kid's show.
"The Ghost": Carrie the Ghost often uses Gumball's body but now he has to learn how to say "no" to her, which may prove to be an extremely difficult thing to do considering Carrie normally uses his body against his will anyway.
- Darwin describes the situation to Gumball by saying Carrie "likes going inside your body".
- When Richard comes back from being stranded on a raft in the middle of the ocean, with only the raft covering him:
Darwin: What happened to your clothes?
Richard: I ate them. [Turns around, revealing his sunburned butt, and walks up the stairs back to his room]
- "Weiner doesn't mean "winner". It means "sausage"."
- While Gumball is searching for a date to the party, his observation of Teri (a bear made of paper) has a strange multiple meaning:
Gumball: She's a little flat.
- While the party is being busted wide open by Principal Brown and Ms. Simian, Alan motorboated two balloons.
- Miss Simian and Principal Brown are making out in the closet when Jackie and Harold come home.
- Gumball spends the episode's second half butt naked again (due to Darwin eating his clothes out of starvation).
- Mr. Robinson explains to Gumball and Darwin how he and his wife would argue, sometimes six times a day, sometimes in public, even once in their sleep! Anyone who is or was married or in a similar long-term committed relationship will recognize what he is really talking about.
- Gumball, Darwin, and Anais accidentally take their Dad's testosterone supplements that he was going to use to impress his wife (and make his man-boobs stick up).
- Leslie's reaction to Gumball's butt as the latter transforms into a man.
- Richard spends a good chunk of the episode's second half with his man-boobs in full display (his clothes were ripped in the front).
- Richard's man-boobs once again are shown in close-ups (the closest one is before he tries out the Electro-Fat).
- By the episode's end, Richard flexes his boobs (and new muscles) saying the device was worth the time.
- As Gumball prepares for a cheerleader tryout to win Penny back, he ends up having to lift the skirt he's wearing up to his mother.
- A little later at the actual tryout, his skirt flops down on him as he flips, displaying his lower body, much to everyone's shock.
- Gumball runs through the girls' shower room to escape Tina.
- When Anais tells Mr. Small that Tina Rex is bullying Gumball, the color runs from his body to his feet, forming a yellow puddle on the floor.
- The very poorly censored Captain Punch comic clearly has a page where a man is kicked in the crotch so hard he's lifted back off his feet; the white-out covering this is even in the shape of a boot. He's also spitting up blood, something the white-out does not cover at all.
- Richard is forced to shower outside the house, and Penny and her father see him.
- The Sausage Pen◊ looks like a sex toy, isn't it? The finger's position is curious as well.
Richard: Well, I invented... the Sausage Pen! Everything it writes is delicious.
Nicole: Mmmm... innovative! But... ultimately useless.
[Nicole puts Richard's face onto the cloud column, next to Darwin's, and Richard's face slowly changes from happiness to disappointment]
- The abuse (played for laughs) Nicole puts Gumball through to make a winner out of him, most notably making him stand on the roof of the house during a lightning storm while holding a golf club and leaving him in the desert so he can walk home.
- Gumball's jealousy drives him to keep weed-killer and vandalized photos of Leslie in his locker, implying his jealous side was planning to murder Leslie (which he actually tries to do by attacking him with slugs).
- During one of Gumball's tirades about Leslie, a long list of insults includes "self-pollinating." If you know anything about reproduction in flowers and plants, he basically just called Leslie a jack-off.
- From the end of the episode:
Gumball: Wait, did you just say he was your cousin?
Penny: Well duh, everyone knows.
Gumball: Well duh, I didn't.
Leslie: There's a lot of things you don't know about me, Gumball.
- Mr. Small's "herbal tea" gives him some adverse effects; most notably towards the end of the episode, where after taking a sip his eyes begin to get weird and his face gets all loose.◊ After Gumball and Darwin leave, Mr. Small proceeds to let out a "WOO-HOO!", like that "herbal tea" is more enjoyable than it should be...
- When Darwin is raiding Joe's locker, he pulls out a jockstrap and tells Gumball to chew on it. Neither addresses what it actually is, but Gumball looks at it with absolute disgust, and then he pretends to chew on it when he obviously is not and does not want to.
- Darwin chews up Joe's pen from the locker. Later in the episode Joe says it's an heirloom his ancestor used and "I'm not even gonna tell you where he had to hide it to keep it safe", then Darwin starts wiping his tongue in disgust.
- Gumball silences a firecracker by sitting on it. Then he coughs up smoke, making clear that even if the thing itself didn't go up there, the explosion did.
- Gumball and Darwin deliver a pizza to a couple of pizza-headed people, which they apparently consider to be their new child. As the father is paying Gumball, he accidentally drops the box while reaching for the money he gives them, which completely horrifies the couple◊. Even worse, Darwin slips on the "dead" pizza baby as they run away, further smearing its tomato sauce, or, as the pizza couple see it, blood, on the concrete.
- When one of the reality-warping waves inverts everyone's gender (turning Anais and Nicole male and Gumball, Darwin, and Larry female), girl Larry has little cube breasts.
- A male ghost character phases his head through the girls' bathroom. A feminine scream is heard after.
- While Clayton is disguised as Principal Brown, Miss Simian seduces and almost makes out with him, not knowing how close she was to making out with a student.
- Gumball abuses his power over Bobert by sending him to the nurse's office with fire coming out of his butt, telling the nurse it's been happening ever since, "[I] fell in love with Your Mom," and making out with the wall defibrillator.
- Bobert's picture equation written on the school football field: "Glasses + horse's ass = Principal Brown."
- Miss Simian trying to warm up in the walk-in freezer by hugging a shirtless Gumball. Lampshaded when she says, "I'm sorry, Watterson. I know this is inappropriate, but I just need to warm up."
- A bee appears and Gumball hides himself from it in Nicole's skirt.
- During the party montage, Gumball funnels Idaho with a soda bong and Idaho gets baked in an oven with some fries.
- "And he's making rude gestures at me with those little tentacles!"
- Alan the balloon explains to Gumball that his knot, the only orifice his body has, is used to breath, eat, and excrete. In a later scene (pictured above), Gumball has to "inflate" Alan in the school bathroom. Alan's knot deflates slightly, causing it to moving upward in a very questionable manner just before the scene skips to them then leaving the bathroom. Gumball has a traumatized look on his face while Alan has an incredibly happy look on his.
- "Gumball Watterson may be a lot of things, but he's not a cheap, corruptible bimbo!"
- Principal Brown is shown to have a rather suggestive calendar he planned on giving Miss Simian. One picture has him laying on a bear skin rug, invoking the cliche of someone laying on such a rug naked.
- It is implied that Gumball ate and then pooped out an entire rake, in one piece, to smuggle it.
- A bear literally pops a cupcake's cherry during a detention riot, prompting this dialog.
Gumball: Did you see what that bear did to that guy's cherry?
- Gumball pretends he's pregnant by stuffing Darwin in his shirt so he can get a seat on the school bus (which normally don't have reserved seats for the elderly, pregnant women, and anyone who's temporarily or permanently handicapped). He even complains of having hot flashes and craving sardines and ice cream.
- Gumball and Darwin offer Tobias a hug in the locker, but they're both wearing nothing but towels, so he refuses. The two then tackle him to try and force him, and eventually Darwin takes Tobias's towel and spanks him with it in the middle of the school corridor.
- When Miss Simian orders everyone to get back to class after telling them that she's not retiring, Gumball grumbles, "Ah, curse word!"
- Harold likes touching things, including sticking his finger in Anais' mouth. Harold even gets thrown out the Watterson house for it, with someone yelling, "Hey, go poke yourself!".
- Gumball, Darwin and Anais disguise themselves as a pizza delivery man to get back into their house full of party animals. Being at the bottom of the disguise, the way Anais hands over the receipt probably couldn't be any more wrong.
Hot Dog Guy: Uh... you can keep it.
- "Hi, my name's Darwin Watterson, and this flim, and this fil, flim, ahh... Curse word!"
- During the Wildlife Commentary Spoof, part of the name Gumball uses for Richard ("Moobus Gelatinous") is dog Latin for "moobs" ("man boobs").
- Gumball's butt is injured by a lightning-fast tennis ball, but he hurriedly claims it feels better the moment Mr. Small tries to massage it.
- One of the video remixes had Gumball's face on a bunch of roasted sausages◊ when making a rather pained expression.
- Gumball tries to enter the Internet by scanning himself without his clothes on. It doesn't work, but it does give Darwin a nice (high definition!) close up photo of Gumball's privates. Afterwards, Darwin tries to wash his eyes out with the showerhead.
- The Internet tells Gumball and Darwin to "get bent", a phrase that's usually considered at least moderately profane (it's generally considered short for "get bent over and take it up the ass").
- Larry threatens to kick Gumball and Darwin out of the store when their voices begin wrecking the merchandise. The security guard comes in and looks as if he's about to shoot them, but pulls out a baton (that goes limp) and the guard meekly replies that he can't do anything but ask them nicely to leave.
- Sarah makes a video and song about her stalking Darwin and Gumball. A lot of it portrays her attraction toward them as less like a child's crush and more like open sexual lust:
- Staring at Gumball through the window while he was undressing; he saw this and closed the blinds while covering his chest with his arm
- Watching them while hiding inside their closet
- Looking at them, trying to nuzzle Gumball's hair, and taking pictures of them while they're unconscious
- Standing around in the bathroom while Darwin takes a shower
- Wearing some of Gumball's clothing and enthusiastically smelling others
- Mr. Small seems to be high when staring at the painting that Sarah hides in. It doesn't help that he's carrying a mug (which may or may not have that herbal tea he drank on "The Banana") which is steaming (giving off an appearance similar to smoke) and laughing in a way similar to a stoner laugh after everyone is done screaming.
- When Ms. Simian zips up Banana Joe's peel, some of his "banana" gets stuck in the zipper, prompting a very painful looking reaction◊, reminiscent of that one scene in There's Something About Mary.
- Miss Simian examines Gumball and Darwin in the nurse's office and throws a jar of yellow liquid at them when they advance on her. The nurse cries out, "That's not water." and pauses for a few seconds as we see the pair drenched in it, giving the impression that they're covered in urine... before clarifying that it's cough medicine.
- When the Joy virus begins spreading, Rocky is in the locker room, spraying an Axe (or Lynx, since this show is from the UK and that's what Axe body spray is called there) body spray-type male deodorant on himself. The Band-Aid nurse (who has been infected with the Joy Virus) tackles him and Rocky says (before he's brainwashed as well), "Hey, this stuff really works!", thinking that the nurse is sexually attracted to him because of the spray.
- There's a discussion where Gumball basically tells Darwin that, if they were a couple, he would be the one with the pants in their relationship.:
Gumball: We have to do it exactly like they did!
Darwin: Does that mean I have to wear a mustache and we should, you know, kiss?
Gumball: Ehh, no. And for the record, I would be the one with the mustache.
- The episode in general is almost ridiculously dark and violent:
- It begins with Anton being disintegrated in the pool and falling to pieces in Gumball's hands as he tries to revive him, causing a horrified reaction from almost everyone present.
- When Anton comes back the next day, Darwin and Gumball try to figure out how by hurting him in incredibly over-the-top ways, including slicing him into pieces with a paper shredder, inducing a heart-attack by shock, and tricking Tobias into eating him alive. These seem only slightly worse than the show's usual Amusing Injuries, until it revealed Anton actually died and was replaced with a clone all those times, as well as every time before this episode.
- Darwin and Gumball start making their own clones and it gets even worse: Darwin mentions he accidentally caused his half of the clones to commit mass suicide, and Gumball almost does the same to the rest.
- The evil clone turns the sprinklers on to turn the remaining clones to mush, before himself getting sucked down the pool drain and torn apart by the grate.
- One of the cardboard cutout people from "The Sweaters" tries to get his change out from another one's back pockets. However, they both have their arms frozen in place above their head, so the one going for said change ends up suggestively poking his face around the other one's butt.
- The colorful bird does his mating dance for a black bird who turns out to be male — and tells him to continue the dance since it was actually good. Due to the homoerotic undertones, Cartoon Network's Latin American channel cut that scene.
- Principal Brown has an incredibly awkward sleepover with Gumball and Darwin where he starts having a relationship talk with them. Brown immediately shuts up when he realises how inappropriate he sounds.
- All the school faculty are revealing their own lies. The Coach's is "And I'm not a woman... who can say she's never lied on her résumé either."
- Similar to the herbal tea drinking in "The Banana", Mr. Small explains how he's so good at navigating the crazy otherworldly dimension of the world's mistakes: he's "used to feeling spaced out."
- The episode has a side story of Mrs. Robinson leaving her husband, who's in the hospital with a stuffing deficiency, so she can go on an island vacation. When she returns, it's revealed that she nearly married one of the sailors she met in the conga line and broke up with him when Mr. Robinson was recovering.
- When he thinks that Darwin's ailment is worms, Gumball delivers this throwaway line:
Gumball: Just squat over a bowl of milk and whistle till they come out.
- The Band-Aid nurse prescribes herself a dose of heavy sedatives so she doesn't have to listen to Teri the bear latest worries over having an illness.
- Gumball was under the impression that Richard loves and favors Anais so much that they finish each other sentences, which Darwin incorrectly interjects with "Sandwiches". Then it cuts to Anais letting Richard finish her sandwich, which leads to Gumball...
- After Penny cracked the part over her eye, she, Gumball and Darwin stand on the porch to her house. Preparing to tell Penny's father what happened, Penny and Gumball stand faced to each other and wobble their tongues. When Penny's father comes out, he catches them, and looking from the angle where Penny's back is facing him, it looked to him is if they were French kissing.
- Jackie (Tobias' mom) describes Penny in her red minotaur form as being a "cow on steroids".
- Gumball walks in on Banana Joe watching a video of a peeled orange being spread apart, which to him is obviously supposed to be like porn. To really hammer it home, Joe has a box of tissues right next to his laptop.note
- Miss Simian and Principal Brown's loud and obnoxious flirting after Miss Simian comes in and yells, "Romance, NOW!".note
- In the "It's Love" song, Gumball and Darwin are shown having a bath with "Chris Morris", sleeping in the same bed (Richard and Nicole's bed) and kissing him and laughing while bizarre pictures showing Brown depilating appear on the screen intermittently.note
- After checking about the alarm, Miss Simian says if she can continue with her romance week-end. Doughnut Sheriff puckers his lips and Miss Simian says: "Not you!".
- A somewhat more subtle example occurs when Gumball and Darwin are simultaneously trying to catch Chris Morris and avoid Miss Simian, Principal Brown, and the Doughnut Sheriff:
- Gumball: Where is that little-
Darwin: (cutting him off) Shh!
- A weeping Gumball asks Darwin if it's weird that he thinks about Penny "all the time, even in the bathroom". Gumball most likely didn't mean that in a dirty way, but it immediately comes to mind anyway.
- Gumball's says the word "damnation", though in the literal sense rather than a profane one (preferring a "life of damnation in limbo" to watching a home shopping channel).
- The Snatcher/Carrie's dad unceremoniously falls out a window and dies (which seems bad at first, but now allows him to hug his ghost daughter).
- Granny Jojo had her 63rd birthday in this episode. It's also stated Richard's dad left them 42 years ago, and that he was old enough to remember him. If you do the math, that implies Richard was conceived when his mother was about 15-17 years old. This is Retconed in "The Signature", where the time is brought down from 42 years to 33 years, probably because of potential discrepancies and Unfortunate Implications such as this.
- During the beginning showing everyone depressed in January, a black pigeon sighs despondently and hurls himself down the Wattersons' chimney.
- Gumball tries to make up a description for Sluzzle Dude, a Santa equivalent for a holiday he made up, but his description comes off the wrong way.
Gumball: He's got a beard, sneakers, and a leather coat.
Darwin: Is that all he's wearing? Sounds like he should be running from the police.
- Rocky stumbles upon an elderly crocodile woman while eating a bagel. She thinks he is proposing marriage to her and mentions that she has been "saving herself" until that moment. Regardless of what she meant, it's pretty easy to interpret her words as her Vow of Celibacy (which left her unemployed, homeless, and depressed).
- Gumball and Darwin have a G-Rated Drug trip after eating cereal marshmallows through their eyes. Gumball wakes up in a ballerina tutu and Darwin wakes up handcuffed with a tattoo on his butt. Special note for how said handcuffs are covered in red fuzz, which very specifically implies they're the kind of handcuffs used for sexual bondage and not the kind the police use to restrain criminals.
- When Larry realizes he's wasted his life on nothing but work, he suddenly starts incessantly reciting his daily schedule while driving to the beach and swimming straight out to sea. It is a very strong possibility that he's trying to kill himself.
- Gumball breaks a computer in the library, and says he'll probably hanged and quartered, among other things, by the school librarian.
- Gumball makes Alan out to be a cheater in front of Carmen by showing pictures of Alan (actually Darwin's face on a green balloon) kissing female students, male students, and a toilet. And while the photo of Leslie enjoying his kiss, unlike everyone else was cut before the episode aired, a few frames of it can still be seen if you pause at the right time.
- Gumball (psoing as Alan online) makes a downright racist comment about how "drawn people" should go back to their own country.
- Darwin spills coffee on Gumball. Darwin cools him by inhaling air while Gumball puts his butt directly in front of Darwin's face and makes a very relieved expression. Marvin passes by and comments that "I don't know what you're doing, but you should be ashamed of it!"
- In the prophetic painting, Gumball's crotch is obscured by a maple leaf. Later, as Gumball approaches the mall and starts noticing elements of the painting, he fixates at one point on a maple leaf - an anthropomorphic one, headed to the mall to shop. In the end, when Gumball decides that the prophecy is inevitable and tears off his clothes preemptively, Anais grabs the maple leaf and covers Gumball by throwing them onto his crotch.
- For the sake of Gumball never exposing his genitals, even to himself, Darwin apparently removed his entire crotch.
- The child filters muting words or phrases that Darwin deems unsafe make some of the things Gumball says (like "What the what?" or "Gosh darn") seem a lot worse that they actually are.
- The incredibly peaceful live action photos which cut off Darwin's venting after Gumball stomps on his foot imply that he said something especially foul. The images shown actually suggest a specific message: it's a mother with a baby, a man with a pitchfork next to bales of hay, a donkey, and a happy clown. He's cut off saying "Oh, you—". Put it all together and...
Oh, you mother-forking* ass-clown!
- The emblems on Darwin's banners in the town hall resemble the Nazi Parteiadler, only with a yellow triangle exclamation point sign in place of the swastika.
- The guard that sees Richard in drag slowly mouths "What... the...." then gets smacked with a fire hydrant.
- When Gumball throws his hot dog, it comes to Hot Dog Guy's mouth◊ and remains immobile during all the scene.
- When time is frozen, Darwin and Gumball pull a prank on a man licking an ice cream cone with his eyes closed by replacing the cone with a dog. The specific positioning◊ implies they meant to trick him into licking the dog's anus once time starts back up. They also make it so Gary the purple moose stops Sal Left Thumb from stealing the black hexagon woman's purse. Gumball decides that's too nice, so he pulls down Gary's pants and smears lipstick on his face, making it look like he's exposing himself◊.
- One Alternate Timeline is created when Gumball and Darwin create a bunch of copies of themselves and leave them fighting each other in the past. In the present, everybody looks like themselves mixed with Gumball and/or Darwin. Reach your own conclusions from this.
- In another Alternate Timeline created by Gumball and Darwin, everyone is very angry and speaking in German, implying that Gumball and Darwin somehow allowed Nazi Germany to win World War II.
- Leslie advises Darwin to picture everyone naked in order to alleviate his performance anxiety, which works when he sees Juke (the boombox-headed kid) naked, but not Mr. Small. Especially when Mr. Small bends over in front of him to pick up the peas he knocked over and talks about how he used to play the bongos in the school band.
Mr. Small: Hours and hours of slapping those skins made me the man I am today.
- When trapped in the darkness of his bad mood Gumball gropes what he thinks is the sofa, but when it's revealed that Gumball imagined everything that happened, it turns out it was Richard's man boobsnote .
- Gumball wears Pimp Duds because he misheard Nicole's order to wear something respectable as "to wear something that commands respect." He even does a pimp strut before Nicole orders him to stop.
- As Nicole and Felicity are fighting off-screen, there's a pause followed by an barely-audible exclamation of disgust. Darwin and Gumball look very confused at what Richard describes as "territorial scent marking", implying one of the mothers (more likely Nicole, as the groan sounded closer to Felicity's voice) just urinated in public.
- Richard imagines himself in Hell with Gumball, Darwin, and Anais as "the demons of guilt" accusing him of being a bad father.
- While Rob is holding melons, Gumball says he found the thing that Rob misses for being an enemy, and Darwin says if they're "melons" (as in "testicles").
- In Gumball's vision of Marvin, Betty, and Donald as gangsta-rap style thugs, Marvin is shown wearing a pimp hat surrounded by money with two bitches (as in "female dogs," not the derogatory term for a woman) at his side.
- After being bowled over by the fastest and heaviest of metal objects being attracted to him, a recently telepathic Gumball reminds Darwin to mind his language.
- The things the Wattersons do to their family tree by adopting each other throws up all sorts of incestuous implications, most notably both Richard and Granny Jojo ending up married to their grandchildren.
- To put out a fire, Gumball and Darwin ask Masami to rain on it. Masami replies that she can't rain with people watching her.
- While Nicole is looking for a parking space in the garage, Richard and the kids sing "99 Bottles of Age-Appropriate Beverages on the Wall".
- A doctor begins examining a patient, then the scene cuts to him throwing the Wattersons and their car out of the hospital. The Wattersons somehow managed to park their car inside the patient's rear end!
- Richard (with his Stripperiffic warrior costume showing a bit of his pectorals) tells Cartax to watch its language as it sinks in the asphalt swamp.
- Thanks to a faulty request on his Siri-style voice-activated personal assistant, Bobert marries off Alan and Leslie. Alan doesn't object (even though he's dating Carmen) and neither does Leslie (who was already labeled as Ambiguously Gay by most fans/viewers). To top it off, Leslie tells a confused Banana Joe that "You had your chance," before leaving with Alan.
- The disc Gumball uses to downgrade Bobert to a version that actually works is labelled "BS 7". The letters presumably stands for "Bobert System", but given the episode is a very unflattering parody of Apple products and iOS (with a slight burn against Windows updates), it might also stand for "bullshit".
- Sarah draws a comic called Laserheart, whose title character is based on Gumball and has a very Stripperiffic costume: very high boots with hot pants, and a tank top that barely covers his pecks, all of which are skintight. Laserheart is also shown in numerous suggestive poses, including a Boobs-and-Butt Pose and another drawn like Spider-Woman by Milo Manara◊! Either it was one of the instructions from the how-to-draw book or Sarah has been checking out Gumball's backside.
- Darwin's initial criticism of Laserheart includes that he's "anatomically incorrect". This could just be in reference to his badly drawn body structure, but also calls attention to how his shorts, despite the aforementioned tightness, have no visible bulge.
- Right before getting mugged, Gumball attempts to alleviate Sarah's fears and accidentally makes a rather suggestive comment.
Sarah: Are you sure we should be in the park at night?
Gumball: Fear not, young lady, Laserheart can strike down any foe! He's here to force the light of justice where the sun doesn't shine... eh, that came out a bit wrong.
- Gumball ends up inviting Hot Dog Guy to a sleepover. Anais tells Gumball that she's not going to be there to help him because, "You made your bed; now you gotta awkwardly lie next to a stranger in it."
- While sleeping in the tent, Hot Dog Guy accidentally touches Gumball, so Gumball climbs on top of him to reposition his arm. Unfortunately, this wakes the Hot Dog Guy up, and they begin CUDDLING. While already it's questionable to cuddle with a stranger, the act is then shown from the outside of the tent, which may make it appear as if they are doing something else.note
- While Hot Dog Guy is using the school shower, Gumball turns the water temperature way down. When the Hot Dog Guy has come out, he's experienced some major shrinkagenote .
- Mrs. Robinson switches the tags on two babies right before both pairs of parents pick them up. Both fathers pick up the baby the label says is theirs, notice the obvious resemblance between that baby and the other father, then start fighting each other.
- While Darwin and Gumball investigate Mrs. Robinson past, they find one picture where she happily sits on a boat as her brother drowns and another where she's standing outside Elmore Junior High as it burns down and firefighting LEGO men are called to put out the blaze. Gumball's line "Yeah, probably the last [day] for a few others", implies that some people died in the fire.
- When looking for clues at Joyful Burger, Gumball realizes that the stuff on Alan's plate isn't ranch dressing because his feelings of guilt were too much for his weak stomach. The restaurant patrons are disgusted until Gumball explains that he meant that Alan used the light dressing instead. Gumball then berates them for having dirty minds.
- The biological diagram of Alan's body makes it very explicit that his knot is his anus: it shows a human's lower digestive system overlapping his body and the part that leads to the knot is labelled "colon". In the scenes immediately following:
Alan: What the... !? Is she talking out of her backside now?
- Another diagram shows an organ transplant simply involves shoving your hand into his body and pulling the organ out. Gumball does exactly that.
- As in "The Storm", Alan requires re-inflation, but Darwin doing so is on-screen this time. A doctor bursts in, demanding an explanation, sees them in the act, then quickly exits with a disgusted look on his face.
- A side-effect of the surgery causes Alan's mother to start literally talking out of her ass.
- The episode ends in that way:
Gumball: Oh, nothing is ever good enough for you, is it! MISTER PERFECT!! Since when did you have a surgeon's licence!? Oh but please! Judge away! Looking down from your high horse, making everyone feel like—- (episode ends)
- It looks like Richard and Nicole both got the idea to get Gumball a pet, but when they both say their idea, Richard says his is to go back in time to make sure we never... then quickly cuts himself off with a nervous laugh saying he was totally thinking of the pet idea. It's obvious he was going to say they should prevent Gumball from being conceived, possibly by stopping themselves from having sex unprotected.
- "The Choices" reveals that Gumball was indeed born because they didn't use protection.
- When Gumball is about to try and grab the steering wheel to stop the runaway car, Darwin is about to explain why that's not a good idea, only for the glitching to cause cutaways to a claymation car crash, a headache commercial showing a diagram of a human brain, and a watermelon exploding.
- In the "Love is Chemistry" section, a man and woman are shown going through the chemical reactions of falling for each other...only for the woman to run into the arms of another woman and the man to run into the arms of another man.
- Felicity calls the cops on Richard after seeing him hug her son, Billy and hugging her, which she construes as sexual harassment.
- The judge that tries Richard is based on the one in The Wall, including the ass for a face and a scrotum for a chin.note
- In Anais' natural history book, the trionyx turtle's Latin name is "occidere machinae ex infernum". Translated, it means, "Killing machine from Hell".
- During the baby turtles' attack on Elmore, one of them bites the groin of the green goblin Chanax CEO as he's taking a shower.
- Gumball waxes Harold's car in the same manner as an aesthetician waxes someone with body hair. It's implied he finished by waxing the undercarriage, which causes the car alarm to go off as if it was in pain.
- In his dream, Hector points out that in real life, he's too big to wear clothes, so he's always "naked and just hoping nobody looks up!"
- Teri dreams she is naked in school.
- Daisy dreams Anais is a doll (but clearly still alive) which she abuses under the guise of playing with her. This includes shoving Anais's head underwater, hanging her off the side of car to drag her face along the road, and ripping her in a tug-of-war with another doll.
- The hairy homeless guy makes a comment that causes Gumball to question if the man is wearing any clothes under his trenchcoat. The man responds, "I don't know, am I?!" and pulls the coat off. Gumball was clearly expecting to be flashed, as he closes his eyes and screams until he sees the man is fully clothed.
- Gumball stands up to the LEGO construction workers by giving a hand gesture they guess is "the Vulcan gang sign" and whose meaning he admits to not knowing. He appeared to be crossing his middle/ring finger over his pinkie, but the perspective◊ makes it look alarming close to Flipping the Bird.
- The LEGO construction workers seem to be giving Construction Catcalls and insults, but were really just making bad attempts at sincere compliments. The initial attempts to correct this come off as even more lecherous, including a Wolf Whistle and drawn out "Nice" ("That just went from 'uncomfortable' to 'unacceptable'.") When they try again at the mall, their tone sounds outright seductive and stalkerish, drawing a comparison to "...the last thing the victim hears in a horror movie." Gumball also narrowly averts an even worse debacle:
- Gumball, Richard and Anais rush to destroy several electronic devices once they find out Nicole knows how to search their browser history.
- We get a nice dose of bloodless carnage when Richard decides to eat fish hooks and drink salt water, uttering, "I love the way salt water stings my insides," before passing out.
- During the hurricane of fish puns, Gumball tells Darwin "Minnow you've been giving us a lot of carp about this whole fish thing..."
- The premise of the episode is about Gumball obsessed over about Tobias not slapping him on his butt. Several of the scenes throughout the episode resemble sexual harassment.
- Gumball insists that he will get Tobias to slap his butt by the end of the day, then realizes that people are usually in their bedrooms at the end of the day.note
- The episode features several suggestive lines, such as Tobias saying that he will get physical if Gumball keeps making advances toward him. Gumball is very excited to hear this.
- There's also a LOT of focus on Gumball's behind including the first musical number.
- Gumball and Darwin are shown several times under the effects of sugar.
- As Nicole is jumping across cars with her children in tow, there's exactly one frame (right before she lands on Hot Dog Guy's car) where her Magic Skirt falters, lifting up far enough to show her underwear.
- A driver at the beginning nearly calls Nicole a "dumb bitch" after she jumps on his car. He only gets to the word "dumb" when Nicole threatens him with a death glare, reducing him to gibberish.
- Gumball makes a Catch-Phrase variation, "What the actual what?", which is clearly based on the phrase "What the actual fuck?"
- Attention is drawn to Nicole's butt when Yuki comments on how big it is.
- Yuki tries to piss off Nicole by sexually harassing Richard in front of his whole family. She hits on him despite his obvious discomfort, grabs a piece of his flab, and sticks her legs up in front of him to keep him from walking away.
- Darwin's crush on Carrie includes a rather questionable interest in being possessed by her:
Carrie: (blushing) So, Darwin. Do you mind if I use your body?
Darwin: (nervous murmurs)
- Gumball and Rob are literally wrestling for the remote and accidentally change the music to a "romantic" jazz tune. Gumball comments "Is it me or does this music give a whole different vibe to the situation?"
- As soon as Gumball grabs the remote:
Rob: (in slo-mo) Give me that remote you little-
Gumball: (presses the shut down button)
- When time is rewound, Nicole is seen briefly in only her panties, using balls from the ball pit to cover her breasts.
- When Darwin is asked about his special dark place, he slowly points at his bottom.
Darwin: Never mind.
- Principal Brown pretends to be cheating on Ms. Simian with the Nurse and that it resulted in an unplanned pregnancy—his.
- Gumball encourages Josh to rag on a man by saying he wears a big hat to compensate for... Josh doesn't guess right.
- One of Gumball's suggestions to force Josh to be Anais's friend again is to sneak into the locker room and blackmail him with nude pictures.
- After Gumball sits on the floor too long, his butt grows roots. Darwin pulls him out of the ground, and we see the roots coming right out of his crotch. This prompts a dialogue blatantly speaking of them as if they were pubic hair. It's even shot with both their mouths offscreen, as if the editors expected the lines to be redubbed or muted out on and didn't want to risk the lip sync not matching up:
Darwin: Ew... you're gonna have to wax that.
Gumball: Nah, it's OK, I'll just prune it.
- During Gumball and Darwin's walk to find something interesting in the neighborhood, a lawn mower runs over Principal Brown's lower half, he shouts out in panic, and his entire lower half is left pixellated.
- Harold accidentally pulls Miss Simian's clothes off in public after slipping on some mayonnaise, looks down at her naked body (covered by a headless mannequin), and vomits inside the Hexagon Lady's purse (with the vomit partially obscured by Neckbeard drinking water from a water fountain).
- The episode begins with Gumball and Darwin changing clothes in a locker room. Gumball has accidentally taken Alan's bag, which contains just a string. One of Gumball's attempts to wear it involves tying up his crotch to look like a present. Darwin even refers to the look as "Really Inappropriate Birthday Gift."
- When reading Alan's manifesto, one of his plans is to force unhappy people into "happy camps". The boys' reaction draws even more attention to the parallels with concentration camps.
- When miming ways to kill Alan, Darwin mimes sucking the air out of him. Given Alan's biology, Darwin was basically going to suck his guts out.
- After Harold insults Nicole for the millionth time in the future where they're married, there's a cut to Nicole being arrested in front of their burning house. Harold is nowhere in sight despite Nicole's furious responses to his last comment, suggesting she may have actually murdered him.
- They silent montage of Nicole and Richard's life shows them attending a doctor and clearly finding out Nicole is pregnant. At first they are very happy, then get a shocked expression... and then they get married.
- During the flashback of Gumball's birth, Richard "breastfeeds" him by taping a milk carton to his chest and Gumball drinking it through a straw.
- "What the hashtag, dollar sign, at-sign, asterisk is going on here?!"
- Gumball drops his butt in order to represent "LMBO- Laughing My Butt Off". This is almost never used in real life, instead referencing the more common, vulgar "LMAO" acronym.
- Mrs. Robinson is using Trawlr, a dating app, despite being married already. She, upon seeing Rocky's heavily edited profile picture, swipes down.
- Gumball decides to become the opposite of himself by doing the opposite of literally everything he does in every activity. Once he starts taking food out of his mouth and putting it on his lunch tray, Darwin decides he needs to "put an end to it before [Gumball goes] to the bathroom."
- Gumball and Darwin blithely talk about suicide:
Darwin: You're poisoning yourself!
Gumball: It doesn't matter! I'm like that Roman emperor guy who kept drinking a bit of poison everyday to build up a resistance.
Darwin: Oh, and how did that end?
Gumball: Uh, his palace was invaded and he tried to off himselfnote drinking poison, but it didn't work and he got hacked to pieces by his own soldiers.
Darwin: Okay, that's— It would've been better if he had poisoned himself. But either way, you can see it didn't end well, right?
- Gumball feeds Darwin Cowboy Caviar (completely obscured from view). When Darwin asks what it's made of, Gumball replies "Eggs... from a cowboy." and Darwin wisely avoids inquiring further. Most kids watching would probably assume the joke is that Darwin unknowingly ate fish eggs, but cowboy caviar is actually another word for Rocky Mountain oysterssidenote , which are made with the testicles of livestock.
- There's a rather dark joke involving the 'deletion' of the Anais ripoff. Anyone who knows about how the Chinese government works... yeah, you can take a wild guess.
- Gumball looks on the internet for something Darwin can do instead of eating potatoes, and sounds like he's talking about masturbation.
Gumball: You know, a lot of people find doing something with their hands helps take their mind off cravings. Let's search for... "Things to do with your hands."
(Gumball and Darwin look at a screen off-camera)
Gumball: Origami! That's a great idea!
- Gumball pretends to be a Tattooed Crook, but the tattoo that was supposed to be a lion with a baseball bat is instead described as "a butt with a wig playing an oboe". The "whiskers", however, make it also look like a scrotum.
- Richard makes some extremely invasive attempts to cozy up to his father, including cuddling him from behind while they're bathing, most of which make Frankie freeze in place and shudder. That they're acting like prison inmates doesn't make it any less suggestive.
- When Gumball asks Carrie to make a Love Potion, his description makes her think of a different kind of potion:
- Gumball convinces Darwin that girls like boys who are open about their lives. Darwin's response couldn't be more poorly worded.
- One of Darwin's confessions is that he has a cloaca, but doesn't know what it is, and is afraid to look it up. Basically, he was unknowingly yelling about his genitals and anus.
- The first time the Love Potion causes Darwin and Teri to make out, Carrie and Gumball cover their eyes as if it was something far more explicit. Later on, Teri is baffled by the nurse telling her she has cooties, asks Darwin who he's kissed, and we get a Grossup Closeup of Darwin's horribly diseased mouth.
- Gumball mentions Anais could have worn an unseen outfit (that included leather platform boots), and she replies by looking down at her own body and saying it was not "age-appropriate".
- Darwin asks Gumball to show him a skateboard trick called as "dark side grind". Gumball rubs the skateboard on his own butt, bringing to mind another use of the word "grind".
- In a reference to American Beauty, we see Granny Jojo posing naked and moving "seductively" (with flowers covering her boobs and crotch) while Grandpa Louie describes the first time they met.
Louie: Everything about her was magical. Her luscious lips... her flowing hair... her cutie patootie...Phone: I'm sorry, but I refuse to picture that last image. Goodbye, cruel world! (falls down and breaks)
- It goes like this:
- This line:
Louie: Our romance was ravenous, insatiable, our hearts melting with hunger until we consumed each other like a pair of feasting lions...
- Jojo gets angry when the machine in the supermarket says to Louie "Please scan your items".
- Principal Brown at one point explains, "I'm not a furry, I just wanted to see what I'd look like with a tail." While furry can have an innocent meaning, the fact he's so ashamed of it implies this is likely referencing the infamously less innocent part of the Furry Fandom (the fact he's courting an anthropomorphized primate doesn't help).
- Richard: Listen, little man! I'm the [Imitates static] customer here, and I [Imitates static] don't want to have to repeat my order! [Imitates static] One secret [Imitates static] burger to go, you little [Imitates static]!
- Gumball begs Ocho to marry him in the school hallway, and Masami and Teri overhear it and have this exchange:
Teri: Called it.
Masami: Yeah, guess I owe you 20 bucks.
- Gumball threatens to fight the Gang of Bullies picking on Sussie and starts a Battle Strip, but keeps taking off clothing until Darwin stops him.
Gumball: Alright, I'm-a fight these punks!
Darwin: What, Greco-Roman style?
- Carmen warns Gumball that he'll get a cramp if he's not careful with how he holds his pen. Gumball responds by indignantly planting his elbow on his desk with his hand sticking up, and begins to raise his middle finger before a hand cramp causes his fingers to spasm.
