Recap / My Gym Partners A Monkey S 3 E 15 The Citronella Solution

Go To

Jake foresees an earthquake, and realizes he has the ability to see future tragedies and disasters before they happen.

  • Apocalypse Anarchy: The entire school was in a panic, when the onslaught of "The End" was upon them.
  • Bad Future: When Jake forsees the futures of the gang, Slips will get a skin condition, Windsor will grow gray hairs, Lupe's beak will only get bigger, and Ingrid will keep getting taller.

  • Big, Fat Future: Jake sees his own future and learns that he's going to overeat, making his already massive butt even bigger.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Multiple times. One notable event was when Principal Pixiefrog and Mrs. Warthog comment on how pitchforks and torches are a cartoon tradition.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Slips inhales some citronella spray and reacts, like he did inhalants.
    Slips: Who-ho-hoa, dude! That is some powerful stuff, man.
  • Foreseeing My Death: Jake's worst future foresight was when he saw "The End", meaning an apocalyptic event that would kill everyone. It was soon revealed that "The End" was actually him referring to his own butt, but with a tragedy that bad, I think the students would rather take the apocalypse.
  • Fortune Teller: Jake ends up being one.
  • Future Me Scares Me: This is how most of the gang reacted to their futures.

  • Hidden Depths: Jake's future predictions.
  • Note to Self: Jake has a note taped to the inside of his eyelids, reminding him to buy bananas.
  • Oh Wait, This Is My Grocery List: One of Jake's future predictions was "Buy Bananas", before realizing he was just reading the insides of his eyelids.
  • Running Gag: People (mostly Adam) getting hit on the head by lockers.
  • Shock Collar: The students get shackled in citronella spraying collars.
  • Title Drop: Principal Pixiefrog does this intentionally.
    Pixiefrog: I think I have the solution.
    Warthog: Don't say it!
    Pixiefrog: The Citronella Solution!
    Warthog: Nooooo!
    Pixiefrog: See, Warthog? I told you I could work the title of the episode into the dialogue.
