Recap / Regular Show S 01 Ep 01 The Power

Park slackers Mordecai (an anthropomorphic blue jay) and Rigby (an anthropomorphic raccoon) accidentally put a hole in the wall of their room and panic over how to cover up the damage — and a wizard's keyboard gives them the power of persuasion.

  • Call-Forward: One of the things Rigby sends to the moon is a bunch of baby ducks.
  • Censor Decoy: According to Sam Marin (the voice actor for Benson, Pops, and Muscle Man), the part where the wizard runs into the bushes to urinate was supposed to have him masturbating. Cartoon Network rejected the original plan and went for the one that was dodgy, but more acceptable.
  • Chekhov's Gun: "Hamboning will save your life!"
  • T-Word Euphemism: "How in the H are we gonna fix this S?"
    • Bowdlerization: In the UK, the line is changed to "How in the heck are we gonna fix this hole?" (except for Netflix UK, where the line is, "Now, how in the H are we gonna fix this hole?", which is halfway between conforming to the censors and Getting Crap Past the Radar and would have made a better replacement line in America than the one chosen below)
      • New reruns of the episode on Cartoon Network now have the line as, "Now, how in the heck are we gonna fix this stuff?" (the Slack Pack DVD set has the original line).
