  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: Jake suggested that Adam should wear a cup, during his campaign. They even showed it on screen, presenting a somewhat phallic image in a children's show.
  • I Approved This Message: Actually, Adam didn't approve his campaign message. The editors just had a stock audio clip of him saying that sentence and placed it into whatever ad they wanted.
  • La Résistance: Everybody at the end of the episode, bravely stood up to Bull and forced him to finally step down as leader.
  • Student Council President: Adam Lyon vs. Bull Sharkowski.
