* FullFrontalAssault: One of Mike and Brian's pranks behind the PA System for voicing the whale is saying that some kids' dads are going to sneak into their bedrooms one night and beat them up. Even Craig himself fell for it when he went to try to see Jambu by tapping on the glass three times like Kyle did earlier.
-->'''Craig:''' Hey, that whale talked to me too. After everyone left the show I walked up to the glass and he started talking.\\
'''Kyle:''' Well, why didn't you tell anybody?\\
Craig: I thought I was crazy. He said my dad was gonna sneak into my room naked one night and beat me up.\\
'''Kyle:''' Well, you're NOT crazy. The whale talked to all of us. And he needs our help getting him home.\\
'''Craig:''' [[ComicallyMissingThePoint ...So it's true.]]

* BaitAndSwitch: The ending of the episode looks like it's setting up a RealAfterAll gag where Jambu really does end up with a civilization on the moon, only for reality to set in when it cuts to the whale's lifeless body.


The boys become determined to get "Willzy-x" back to his home, and they recruit the aid of the other boys in their class to steal the whale from his tank under cover of night, planning to hide the whale in Clyde's family's above ground pool until they can secure a contract for his return voyage with the Russian space programme. However, they balk at the hefty price tag (and succeed in convincing Vladimir Putin that they are [[MistakenForPrankCall prank callers]]), and run into similar problems with the German, Japanese, and Chinese space programmes. Fortunately, Stan and Craig are quoted a price of just $200 by the Mexican space programme, and they send word back to Kyle.

Meanwhile, Brian and Mike, not willing to admit their prank to their superiors for fear of losing their jobs, decide to track down the stolen whale themselves. The boys' exploits have also attracted the vocal support of the ALF (Animal Liberation Front). Brian and Mike catch up with the truck carrying the whale, only for two motorcycle cops to catch up with them, followed by the ALF. A gunfight ensues that leaves the motorcycle cops and Mike dead, the truck driver fleeing for his life, and the van now being driven by the ALF leader. They ram a roadblock at the border, and arrive in Tijuana just as the final preparations are being made for launch. Kyle bids a tearful farewell to "Willzy-x" before he and the other boys release him into the sea just as the police and Denver Sea Park administrators arrive. The ALF leader, unaware of the boys' true intentions, delivers a speech about the importance of returning sea mammals to their natural habitat... only to be shocked into silence as the rocket blasts off, carrying the whale in a net.

Upon returning to South Park, the boys look at the Moon in wonder, secure in the knowledge that even if they never see Willzy-x again, he is back where he belongs. The episode ends with a shot of Jambu on the lunar surface... [[RealityEnsues dead from asphyxiation.]]

The kids boys are tricked into believing enjoying a day at Denver Sea Park, especially the performance of Jambu the orca. Kyle lingers behind after the show ends and is amazed to hear Jambu talk to him, unaware that it is simply Brian and Mike, the announcers for Jambu's show, playing a prank. He fetches Stan, Cartman, and Kenny, and the announcers decide to go one better by having "Jambu" say that he is really Willzy-x, a zypod from the Moon, whose greatest wish is to return home to his wife and three children.
