Go To
The summer's on!

Fin: Okay, I have a toast! Maybe our jobs kind of suck-
Reef: And our boss is a total dork!
Fin: Uh huh, yeah! But the waves are awesome, and the beach is beautiful. And this summer is seriously gonna be fun. To Surfer's Paradise!
"Another Grom Bites The Dust"

Stōked is a Canadian animated sitcom produced by Fresh TV, the creators of 6teen and Total Drama. With many of the same people who worked on those shows being involved in the production of this one, the series also features many of the key elements of its predecessors, following and affectionately lampooning the teenage experience for a tween/young teen audience.

The show follows a sextet of teen surfers ("groms") who have all come together to work for the summer at the world-renowned Surfer's Paradise Ridgemount Resort on Sunset Island off the coast of British Columbia, Canada. The group consists of newcomer Emma, seasoned surfers Reef and Fin, Sunset Island locals Broseph and Johnny, and Lo, the daughter of Ridgemount Resort's owner (who has been forced to get a summer job as punishment for trashing her dad's hotel in a massive last-day-of-school party). All of them are stoked to have the summer of their lives working at the legendary resort, surfing the island’s fantastic waves for themselves, and experiencing the endless summer that every surfer dreams of. Unfortunately, what they instead find at Surfer's Paradise are grueling and thankless jobs, a rundown staff house, and a tacky tourist trap of a resort clearly designed to cater to "kooks" (wannabe surfers).

For the next twelve weeks, Emma, Reef, Fin, Broseph, Johnny, and Lo will spend their first summers working and away from home toiling harder than they ever have before under harsh supervisors and obnoxious customers all while dealing with the classic trials and tribulations of being a teenager, like romance and friendship. But even if their jobs are far from ideal and their boss is a serious bummer, these six friends will still find wicked waves to ride and gorgeous beaches to enjoy, and most importantly, they will always find a way to seize the opportunity to SURF whenever they can.

Stōked premiered on Teletoon on June 25th, 2009 and ran for 52 episodes spread out over 2 seasons, coming to an end on January 26, 2013. Overseas, the show is also remembered for its time on Cartoon Network in the United States (one of numerous Canadian imports CN was picking up during the late 2000s and early 2010s), although it failed to perform as well as either Total Drama or 6teen, resulting in only 22 episodes being shown stateside before it left American airwaves for good. However, it did find some more success on ABC3 in Australia, and has nonetheless, managed to build up a solid fan following despite never achieving the popularity or success of its sister shows.

Contains examples of

  • Acid Reflux Nightmare: Broseph has one in "The Reefinator".
  • Actor Allusion:
    • Kristin Fairlie (voices Emma) playing a klutzy, sweet-natured surfer girl? You got it!
    • In "Heartbreak Hotel", Fin burps forcefully enough to blow Reef's and Broseph's hair back and knock Johnny over. Izzy has also been seen releasing burps of such magnitude.
  • Actually Not a Vampire: "Grommy the Vampire Slayer" is all about this as Reef becomes convinced that three VIP Eastern European guests are vampires. They turn out to be musicians with a gothic gimmick. Though the episode leaves some doubt when Lo and Finn both get kisses from them when they leave the resort... on their necks.
  • All Women Love Shoes: Lo has an obsession with flip-flops. After Fin claims that Lo has 50 pairs of flip-flops, Lo tells her not to be ridiculous. She is not some spoiled brat. She only has 36 pairs.
  • Almost Kiss: Reef and Fin, repeatedly throughout the series.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: George
  • Are You Pondering What I'm Pondering?
    Broseph: So Johnny has the keys to the whale bus. And Johnny totally has the hots for Emma. Are you thinking what I'm thinking, bro?
    Reef: Yeah. I should get some smaller cut-outs made. You know, for the babes.
  • Artistic License - Meteorology: In the episode "Clinging In The Rain," a massive storm hits the beach and floods Surfer's Paradise about twenty feet up. For something like that to happen, it would take at least a Category 3 hurricane to produce this kind of storm surge—and the Pacific Northwest only sees Category 1 hurricanes once per century. Also, it would be nearly impossible for a Category 3 hurricane (under current climactic conditions) to maintain its strength that far up the Pacific coast of North America.
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: Reef as "Sandy Beaches" in the episode "Mr. Wahine." He disguises himself as a girl so he can compete against Fin in a women's-only surfing competition called "Battle of the Betties," and Bummer ends up developing a huge crush on Reef's girl-disguise. Hilarity Ensues.
  • Bad Job, Worse Uniform: The members of the wait-staff in the Pirate Ship (the in-house restaurant at Surfer's Paradise) have to wear pirate costumes when they're working.
  • Beat Them at Their Own Game: In "Heartbreak Hotel," when the guys allow Fin to join them on their guys-only weekend, they quickly find that she is One of the Boys to such an extent that even they find her too much to put up with. In response, they begin acting excessively girly, and start doing things like knitting, gossiping, and tea parties. This is of course too much for Fin to put up with, so she leaves them alone and they can finally go enjoy themselves the way they want.
  • Berserk Button: Insult the Groms with every bad name and aspersion in the book and they'll shrug it off or even agree with it. But insult their surfing and they will HURT you.
  • Better as Friends: Emma with both Johnny and Ripper.
  • Betty and Veronica: Johnny and Ty for Emma, with Ripper briefly filling in for Emma's Third-Option Love Interest.
    • Arguably Fin and Lo for Reef in the second season. But which one is the Betty and which one is the Veronica is up to the viewer.
  • Big Eater: Fin cleans out an entire mini-fridge in "Slumber Party Animals".
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: Fin, Lo, and Emma respectively.
    • Broseph, Johnny, and Reef also (although Broseph's hair is probably dyed).
  • Brain Bleach: Occurs in-universe for everyone who gets to see too much of the nudist male Bavarian twins.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: Todd and Mark Marvin, and Erica and Brianna. George is slightly older, but still acts like one to his older sister Lo.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: In one episode Lo and Emma get on Fin's case about her interest in Reef. Whenever one says something they appear in splitscreen with Fin who denies it and physically shoves their frame offscreen.
  • Burger Fool: The waitresses in the resort restuarant have to dress in pirate wench costumes.
  • Burping Contest: In "Brofinger," between Fin, Johnny, and surprisingly Lo. Later Reef joins in.
  • Butt-Monkey: Wipeout the mascot, and Johnny front desk guy.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Reef
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Lo becomes this towards Reef once they start dating in the second season—lampshaded by Broseph in the 45th-episode when Broseph points out that she gets "crazy jealous every time Reef looks at another girl."
  • Companion Cube: Broseph and a hunk of Ambergris (whale vomit) in the episode "All We Are Saying is Give Reef a Chance" that he names Carl.
  • Company Cross References: The intro to fellow Fresh TV series Total Drama Action can be seen on a TV screen in the episode "A Prank Too Far".
  • Cut Short: "Endless Bummer", the 22nd episode of the first season, was the last episode to air in the United States. The show had four more episodes left from the first season, and none of the second season episodes were aired in the United States.
  • Defenestrate and Berate: Happens when the staff go on strike and Bummer locks them out of the staff house. The staff not on strike dump their belongings on them from the balcony.
  • Disappointed in You: Ty tells Emma this when she breaks local law and shows obnoxious outsiders the location of The Office in “Take Your Kook to Work Day”, and while he doesn't say it, the look Broseph gives her screams this.
  • Don't Tell Mama: In "A Prank Too Far," the groms were tricked into thinking they accidentally killed Bummer. When it seemed they'd be arrested, Reef begged them not to tell his mother.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: Johnny.
  • Dumpster Dive: Because initiation day still has 15 minutes left and Kelly wants to get every last bit of sadistic satifisfaction out of tormenting the junior staff, she tosses a keyring into a garbage dumpster and tells them they have to find it before the day ends. Convinced they would refuse the challenge, she's surprised when five of the group jump in to meet the challenge. And horribly shocked when Lo jumps in too, for the sake of helping her new friends out.
  • Eat the Evidence: Lo attempts to do this, but spits out the piece of paper she tried to eat because she didn't like the taste.
  • Egopolis: Reeftopia
  • Embarrassing Slide: In "Grommy the Vampire Slayer", Reef is trying to convince Fin and Emma that the new guests are vampires by showing them a series of photos on his digital camera. In the middle of them is a shot of Fin in her bikini. Reef immediately claims that someone else must have borrowed his camera.
  • Erudite Stoner: Kahuna
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Snack Shack
  • Expressive Hair: Wipeout, the guy in the orca costume's dorsal fin. It hilariously sags when he realizes he's been left behind.
  • Face Doodling: Reef does this Ripper and No-Pants Lance while they are passed out.
  • The Faceless: Mr. Ridgemount (although there is fanart of what his face looks like).
    • Also Wipeout, who is never seen outside of his mascot costume.
    • And Captain Clam, who is so hideous, Lo nearly throws up when he shows her a photo (unseen to the audience) of the person wearing the costume.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: Any of Lo's schemes to get in good with her dad.
  • Fallen Princess: Lo
  • Gasshole:
    • Broseph, Reef and Fin are all belch variants.
      • Broseph, though, he doesn't burp as frequently as Reef or Fin, he can match Fin in power or at least come close. For example: in the final episode, he was in no condition to surf because of his upset stomach, but ends up winning the men's tournament anyway when said upset stomach causes him to burp powerfully enough to propel him backwards into a 1080, beating Reef's score of 9.5 with a perfect 10.
      • Reef is another contender for most frequent burper on the show, although unlike Fin or Broseph he's not winning any contests.
      • Fin doesn't do it too often, but she's the best burper on the show, and has possibly burped more frequently than anyone else (except for maybe Reef or Broseph) and after passing the "man tests" in season 2's 24th episode, Heartbreak Hotel (and said tests actually start with her chugging soda and belching), she celebrates by cutting loose with a burp powerful enough to blow Reef's and Broseph's hair & lips back, knock Johnny over and shake the room they were in. This is excellent foreshadowing of the plotline that Fin is One of the Boys to such an extent that even the guys find her too much to put up with. Even some of her weaker burps can still blow a person's hair back. Naturally, she's also seen having a Burping Contest with Johnny, Reef, and Lo in the episode "Brofinger".
    • Ripper is the only Gasshole on the show known for farting rather than burping, hence the Meaningful Nickname.
  • Good Angel, Bad Angel: In the episode "Dirty Little Secret, Nerdy Little Secrets" and the episode "All We Are Saying is Give Reef a Chance". Both examples with Emma.
  • Grand Finale: In "Grom Fest", the gang is excited to participate in the annual grom fest. However, Johnny has to take care of a sick Bummer. Reef is excited for the event that he puts down his competitors. After a freak accident that costs him his hair, Reef undergoes a serious crisis. However, it isn't until he accidentally uses Kahuna's hair depilatory cream that he comes to terms with his baldness and return to grom fest. Reef ends up getting 2nd place in the guys category, while Fin wins it all.
    • In some countries, "The Day The Sea Stood Still" can be this.
  • Greek Chorus: Sonny the Yellow Tang and Buster the Shark like to comment on the goings-on outside the tank. Rarely does their tank ever get used in the plot.
  • Groin Attack: Happens at least once in every episode.
  • Hairy Hammerspace: Broseph's afro
  • Hartman Hips: Most of the girls, but Fin gets a good mention, especially during her hula dance in "Reef, Broseph and Emma's Totally Stupid Adventure."
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Fin tends to talk and act like she hates Reef, but she actually likes him.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Ripper and No-Pants Lance—it's to the point where Ripper and Emma decide to break up so as to not disrupt Ripper's friendship with Lance.
    • Sonny and Buster.
  • Hotel Hellion: There's a bunch of them from the near-permanent guests.
  • Human Notepad: In "Dirty Little Secret, Nerdy Little Secrets," Emma writes a long screed that covers both of Fin's arms, reminding Fin to wake her up to go training. Fin apparently does not notice till Broseph points it out to her.
  • I Call It "Vera": Broseph's long board is called Angelina.
  • The Inspector Is Coming: "The Very Very Very Very Very Important Guest" is about the resort expecting the arrival of a well-known hotel reviewer.
  • Insult to Rocks: In "Hunka Hunka Burnin' Reef", when Fin and Lo are competing over Reef:
    Lo: So Reef is the dog? Kinda insulting.
    Fin: Yeah. To the dog.
  • Intimate Lotion Application: In "Will the Real Broseph Please Stand Up", one scene has an infatuated Fangirl flirt with the visiting Hollywood star Noah Little by asking him to rub suntan oil on her back. But because Noah is acting like Jerkass version of Broseph, he decides the "Broseph-thing" to do is to pour the suntan oil on her hair and walk away, much to the girl's distress.
  • Jerkass: The senior staff members, excluding Johnny.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Bummer, after he thanks Johnny for yelling at a couple with a pair of bratty kids.
    • It's implied that everyone working at the resort who acts like a jerk pretty much does so only because their jobs are so stressful.
      • This was confirmed in "Endless Bummer", when Bummer is seen to be so stressed out from the rigors of his job that he breaks down crying, leading to the groms helping him deal with his stress. After the resultant We Want Our Jerk Back! storyline, Bummer returns to his normal strict self, though he gets another heart of gold moment when he sincerely thanks the groms for helping him get over his stress.
      • Averted, however, with Kelly. At the start of the series it was implied that she was only a jerk because she was mad at Lo for being so spoiled and bratty, but as things panned out later on she proved to be pretty much a Jerkass, with only a single moment of caring about Emma's well-being in "Penthouse Of Horror" implying otherwise.
  • Karma Houdini: In "The Pirate Who Came To Dinner", Kelly (who has been mean to people) ends up joining the Ridgemounts (even their eldest son Ty) in a family trip to Thailand, after Lo accidentally plays a video of her badmouthing her family instead of the video where Kelly's true nature is revealed.
  • Kick the Dog: Kelly, Lo and Emma's superior, strangles a cockatoo when it repeats what Lo said about her wearing too much make up.
    • And she starts dating Ty just to get in on his family's money.
  • Know Your Vines: Reef picks wildflowers for Fin and leaves them on her bed. Unfortunately, there is poison ivy mixed in with the flowers.
  • Large Ham: Bummer: If I had a WEEK!!!
  • Last-Minute Hookup: Broseph and Lo in the episode "Grom Fest" at least according to Lo.
  • The Law of Conservation of Detail: One episode featured the Ridgemounts (minus Lo) planning a trip to Thailand and one of Lo's friends recorded on Smartphone what she thought of them for that. Later, they record evidence that Lo's big brother's girlfriend was a Gold Digger. Guess what Lo showed her family.
  • Laxative Prank: During the strike episode, Bummer has Wipeout feed the strikers laxative laced donuts.
  • Line-of-Sight Alias: When Reef was dressed as a girl and got asked to enter a female surf contest. When asked for his name, he looked at the sand he was standing on and came up with "Sandy...Beaches".
  • Loophole Abuse: In "Boards of Glory", Reef and Broseph compete in the tandem surf competition after Lo discovers that there is nothing the rules that specifies that the pair must be male and female.
  • Magic Feather: the 'magic' board shorts in "Boardy Brotherhood."
  • Mind Your Step:
    "And watch out for the third step. It's kinda -" *crunch* "- busted."
  • Mistaken for Cheating: Happens to Reef in "Sweet, Sweet Meat Cheat". Fin overhears Reef make a comment about cheating on Lo and assumes the worse. He is actually 'cheating' on the vegetarian diet she put him on by eating franks—however, during the time that Fin tries telling Lo, Lo ends up thinking that Reef's cheating on her with fin.
  • Mistaken for Special Guest: One episode featured this. Most of it focused on the resort staff trying to redeem themselves in front of the real special guest.
  • Mistaken for Thief: A thieving seagull causes Reef to be suspected of being a thief in "To Catch a Reef".
  • Naïve Everygirl: Emma.
  • Naïve Newcomer: Reef, Fin, and Emma to the Ridgemount Resort and Emma to surfing in general.
  • Never Say "Die": Extremely noticeable in "A Prank Too Far," when the groms think they "offed" Bummer.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: The Kahuna is clearly a PG-rated version of the Dude.
  • No Ending: The series never had a proper finale, it just stopped at the end of the second season.
  • Not in Front of the Parrot!: Lo's plans for ditching work are spoiled by the restaurant's cockatoo.
  • Oblivious to Love: Johnny's crushing on Emma (who doesn't notice) who's crushing on Lo's brother, Ty (who doesn't notice).
  • Of Corpse He's Alive: "A Prank Too Far."
  • Official Couple: As of the second episode of season two, Reef/Lo.
  • Pixellation
  • Potty Dance: Emma does this in Episode 8.
  • Potty Emergency:
    • Wipeout in the episode where the groms form a union.
    • Emma gets a case of this in Episode 8 when she has to watch over the surfboard exhibition. She leaves Broseph in charge while she's gone. Guess what he does to the most valuable surfboard on the show with nobody around?
  • The Precious, Precious Car: In "Reef, Broseph and Emma's Totally Stupid Adventure", Bummer's precious new golf cart is 'borrowed' and driven off a cliff into a river.
  • Prematurely Bald: Reef in "Grom Fest". Since this is the final episode of the series, it may be possible that Reef remains bald for the rest of his life.
  • Promotion to Opening Titles: Johnny in Season 2. He's finally added to the group shot.
  • Raising the Steaks: When the Kahuna's fish buddy Fluffy gets cooked by Kelly, he uses a book called "The Peabrain's Guide to Bringing Your Dead Fish Back to Life" as part of a fish funeral. Kahuna then has to stop a zombified fishstick from killing the kitchen staff and escaping to the ocean.
  • Raw Eggs Make You Stronger: Part of Fin's Training Montage in "Dirty Little Secret, Nerdy Little Secrets". She throws up halfway through attempting to drink the eggs.
  • Real Women Don't Wear Dresses: Averted in that Fin is a top surfer and a strong feminist, but she's not averse to conventionally girly stuff like actually wearing dresses.
  • Recycled In Space: 6teen...AT THE BEACH!
  • Recycled Premise: Stōked is essentially what 6teen would be like if it took place at a beachfront hotel instead of a shopping mall, with the six main characters (and many other characters) being more or less exaggerated versions of the main six (and other characters) on 6teen—Johnny (who's more or less the same was Wyatt) and Emma (who's basically just like Jen if she was more laid-back) are two of the exceptions. But even then, it's still a pretty good show.
    • Reef's an exaggerated version of Jonesy Garcia, Broseph's an exaggerated version of Jude Lizowski, Fin's an exaggerated version of Nikki Wong, and Lo's an exaggerated version of Caitlin Cooke. And there's many example—there are actually pages on the Stōked Wiki that list similarities between Stōked to 6teen (and even the Total Drama-franchise).
  • Revolting Rescue: In "Fast Times When the Rip Tide's High", Fin gets stung in the foot by a jellyfish. Reef offers to pee on her foot, much to her dismay.
  • Right Behind Me: Happens to Reef when he is trying to persuade Fin to let him into Ty's room during "Board and Confused."
    • And to Reef again in "The Reefinator" when the beach bully he is dissing walks up behind him.
  • Romantic False Lead: Ty to Emma, and Kelly to Ty.
    • Lo could be seen as this to Reef, at least for those who ship him with Fin.
  • Safety Worst: The episode "Safety Last"
  • Satiating Sandwich: Broseph likes these sandwiches.
  • "Scooby-Doo" Hoax: Bummer's scheme to convince everyone that an unused luxury suite is haunted so he can keep it for himself.
  • Screw the Money, I Have Rules!: Broseph in "Brofinger," refusing to accept any kind of sponsorship deals for his surfing talents. He also doesn't like surfing in contests.
  • Shipper on Deck: Emma and Lo, constantly shipping Reef and Fin and texting one another whenever they catch the two of them in a tender moment (at least until Lo and Reef become a couple).
  • Short Cuts Make Long Delays: The shortcut the eponymous trio take in "Reef, Broseph and Emma's Totally Stupid Adventure" causes them to spend the day lost in the woods.
  • Shout-Out:
    • In one episode, Broseph named his board Avril. Later, he gets a second board named Shania.
    • In "Waves of Cheese", Reef stole lines from an old surfing movie called Break Point'' to impress a girl he's teaching.
  • Slap-Slap-Kiss: Fin and Reef—it's really more like Slap Groin Attack Kiss with them.
  • Slippery Swimsuit: Emma loses both halves of her bikini after a particularly spectacular wipe-out in "All We Are Saying is Give Reef a Chance".
  • Smelly Skunk
  • Sounding It Out: Lampshaded in the episode with the STOKE. Reef passes Fin a note, who promptly reads it aloud. Reef replies that if he wanted it read aloud, he would've just said it instead of giving her a note.
  • Spaghetti Kiss: In the episode "Hunka Hunka Burning Reef."
  • Spit Take: Reef does one (with a mouthful of hot dog) after Lo tells him that he is going vegetarian in "Sweet, Sweet Meat Cheat".
  • Spoiled Sweet: Lo, when she's not being a Spoiled Brat.
  • Spoiler Opening: The Season 2 intro replaces the last scene with Reef's arm around Fin with Reef and Lo holding hands, and Fin on the other end of the group.
  • Straw Misogynist: Reef, who tends to tick Fin off with his insistence that girls can't be equals to men in surfing or similar activities, despite the fact Fin's his equal (or superior) in pretty much every "guy thing" they end up competing in.
  • Suddenly Fluent in Gibberish: Bummer is apparently fluent in seagull.
  • Surfer Dude: The whole point of the series; three surfer dudes, three surfer dudettes.
  • Thieving Magpie: A thieving seagull causes Reef to be suspected of being a thief in "To Catch a Reef".
  • Those Two Guys: Ripper and No Pants Lance.
    • Also Buster and Sonny.
  • Toilet Humor: wouldn't be a Fresh TV production without it.
  • Tongue on the Flagpole: In "Channel Surfers", Reef attempts to kiss Lo while they are standing in the cool room. He misses and ends up with his tongue stuck to a metal strut.
  • Totally Radical: Indulges in it.
  • Totem Pole Trench: In "The Very Very Very Very Very Important Guest" George and Grommet stack up on each other and with Grommet on top so they can pass off as Broseph.
  • Training Montage: "Dirty Little Secret, Nerdy Little Secrets" opens with Fin's undergoing a training montage as she prepares for Gromfest.
  • Traumatic Haircut: Reef gets this twice.
    • In "Who Knows What Evil Lurks In The Heart Of Clam?", Amber Green cuts off a good chunk of Reef's hair, leaving him with a hideous haircut. Reef wears a hat to cover this for the rest of the episode.
    • In the Grand Finale "Grom Fest", Reef loses his hair after crashing into Lo's boat. He ended up sinking to the bottom of the sea with his hair stuck in pieces of wood. Fin comes and saves Reef at the cost of his hair. Later on, he borrows the Kahuna's hair depilatory, actually hair removing cream, and lathers it on his head. This leaves Reef bald for the rest of the episode.
  • Ultimate Job Security: Played straight or averted on a case-by-case basis. Reef and Fin both skipped work in "Fast Time When The Rip Tide's High" with no repercussions despite guests complaining about their absences. In the same episode, Broseph steals an irreplaceable vintage board from a popular exhibit at the hotel, and breaks it while Lo left ignored her tables in the hotel restaurant, leaving the guests complaining about the terrible service, again with no repercussions. In contrast, Bummer threatened Emma with termination unless she removed a turtle that was laying eggs from the beach, and did fire her when she brought the turtle into the hotel, but changed his mind after seeing guests cooing over the baby turtles.
  • Vehicular Sabotage: The groms sabotage Bummer's golf cart in "A Prank Too Far", leading them to think that they've killed him.
  • The Voiceless: Broseph's younger brother, Grommet, who appears in some episodes (alongside Lo's younger brother, George), but is never seen or heard speaking.
  • We Should Get Another Tape: In "Boards of Glory", Johnny is supposed to video the opposing team for a tandem surf competition so Reef and Broseph can study their technique for weaknesses. Instead, he ends up shooting nothing but footage of his crush Emma surfing. The end of the tape shows him pretending the camera is Emma and kissing it, much to Reef and Broseph's amusement.
  • We Want Our Jerk Back!: "Endless Bummer," with Bummer as the jerk.
  • Wild Teen Party: The party that Lo threw that ultimately forced her to work at her family's surf resort for the summer (even forcing her to live at the staff house) was described as "an End-of-the-School-Year party gone wrong." Some of the stuff that happened:
    • The more-than-100 teenaged-guests ended up trashing basically the entire hotel and its ground (including Lo's family's penthouse at the hotel), disturbing pretty much everyone who happened to be staying at the hotel at the time. Basically the entire hotel staff (including the entire housekeeping staff and the new members of the incoming summer staff) were forced to clean up the aftermath of Lo's party over the first two episodes.
    • Broseph drove Lo's car into the hotel's main pool.
    • After running out of firewood for this big bonfire that was on the beach, the people at the party ended up using the hotel's deck chairs in lieu of actual firewood.
    • It attracted the attention of at least one newspaper and one TV-news crew.
    • The Royal Canadian Mounted Police were called in at one point, presumably to try and break up the party.
  • Wig, Dress, Accent: In "Heartbreak Hotel," Emma dons a blonde wig and a pair of sunglasses and adopts a French accent in order to become 'Gemma' and become Ty's rebound girl.
  • William Telling: In "Surfer's Got Talent," Broseph discovers he has an uncanny aim with a water hose and attempts to shoot a half-eaten apple off Emma's head.
  • Wondrous Ladies Room: In "Surf Surf Revolution," Johnny and Broseph are being chased and lose their pursuers by running through the ladies room. Afterwards, Broseph comments on how much nicer the ladies' room is than the men's room.
  • Yet Another Christmas Carol: "The Reefinator". Involving giant sandwiches, the result of Broseph's food poisoning addled mind.
  • Your Mom: Bummer understands seagull language and says one insulted his mother.
