Adam joins the football team.

  • Big Game: The night of the great football game between the Charles Darwin Mad Cows and the Chester Arthur Semi-Pros.
  • Book Dumb: Jake, in this episode, especially.
  • Brains and Brawn: In this episode, Adam was the brains and Jake was the brawn. When they teamed up, they became an unstoppable force.
  • Butt-Monkey: A guy who lives in a glass house, and was taking a bath, ended up being the victim of every misfired football, thrown by Jake Spidermonkey. It started with Jake using his mad hurling skills to throw baseballs through his windows. After doing this a bunch, he shattered the entire house and all that was left was the bathtub, being supported by one tiny drainage pipe. Jake threw a football at the drain pipe, making it tip over and making the guy crash land in all that broken glass.

  • Hidden Depths: Adam may be scrawny and weak, but mentally, he's a superhero. He turns out to have a photographic memory, being able to remember, word for word, all of the plays for the football games.
  • Jerk Jock: Every member of the Chester Arthur Semi-Pros.
  • My Nayme Is: Ingrid is a lousy speller, who thinks "Victory" is spelled as "Viktree".
    Lupe: I told you it was spelled with three "E"s.
  • Primal Chest-Pound: Windsor did this, when he scored a touch down.
  • Put Me In, Coach!: Henry Armadillo was benched for the entirety of every game practice the team did, due to his weakness and incompetence.
  • Spit Take: Jake spits his water out, when realizing Adam became a water boy, exactly like he thought he would.
  • Two Men, One Dress: Adam and Jake share the same football jersey, by means of combining Jake's arm and Adam's brains.
