TOMPKINS: Aww, peas Momkins. I don't need a babysitter.

{Zoom out to reveal Momkins, a robot wearing cowboy boots and a hat and carrying a pickaxe, along with a baby.}

TOMPKINS: I can watch baby Timkins while you go out prospecting for future ex-husbands.

MOMKINS: Whatevs little man. You can't even take care of your own virtual pet.

{Cut to a closeup of the Game Boy screen, displaying a bloated pet and the text, "Food: 600%". Music stops}

MOMKINS: Listen, I'll be at a place until a time. My cell phone number is some numbers. The baby needs stuff. What's poison control? Punch Tompkins in the gut. Good luck.

Fun Facts

Explanations

  • PCP, also known as angel dust, is a recreational drug.
  • Eau de Toilette is French for "water for washing in the bathroom." It is commonly mistranslated as "toilet water."
  • APB stands for all points bulletin, a broadcast issued from one law enforcement agency to another, typically containing information about a wanted suspect.
  • The SAT Reasoning Test is a test that is frequently taken prior to entry into college in America.
    • Timkins's line "Goo goo is ga-ga. Wah wah is ga-ga. Are all goo goos wah wahs?" is a syllogism of the form "All X are Y. All Z are Y. Are all X Z?" The answer is no. Syllogisms are often found on the SAT.
  • A "nickel" is slang for a 5-year prison sentence.

Trivia

  • This is the first Teen Girl Squad issue to use a cold open instead of starting immediately with the opening title sequence.
  • This is the first Teen Girl Squad issue since issue #9 to kill off all four girls within its main plot.
  • This is the first TGS issue since issue #7 in which Strong Bad does not work a variation of himself into the comic.

Remarks

  • The '2 pantries' are actually one pantry with a reverse image next to it.
  • During the title theme, So And So is not listed with the others as they burst in, as she was already present in the house.

Fixed Goofs

  • Tompkins's name was misspelled as "Tomkins" through the entire toon, except in the Snack Mix sequence ("Tompkins' Parlor").
  • When Cheerleader was saying to sneak in through the back window, the text read "the through," while she said "through the."

Inside References

  • What's Her Face comments about the loss of her style.
  • When Tompkins pushes the buttons on his Game Boy to feed his virtual pet, the text "m.a.s.h." appears.
    • When The Ugly One pushes the buttons on her universal remote, the text t.a.p.s. appears, spoofing the mashing go reference.
  • So and So saying "I can't do another nickel!" is in reference to Teen Girl Squad Issue 11 when So and So was in jail for shoplifting.
  • Tompkins's mom's name ends with -erson.
  • This issue contains several words ending in "'d".

Real-World References

  • Tompkins's virtual pet resembles a Tamagotchi.
  • Peacey P's name resembles Eazy-E, and his voice and singing style is very similar to that of Snoop Dogg.
  • So and So's line "You'll microwave the baby!!" and the book of urban legends she is holding reference the urban legend of a stoned babysitter mistaking a baby for a roast.
  • The lines about the Snack Mix prior to What's Her Face's demise are based on the board game Clue.
  • The title of the short is a reference to comedian Robin Harris's "Bébé's Kids" stand-up comedy act. After his death, his routine was adapted into a movie, also called "Bébé's Kids", the first animated feature with a majority African-American cast.
  • "Ding dong. Ding dong, yo." is a reference to a line from the video for "Fat" by "Weird Al" Yankovic.
  • Dangling The Ugly One over the balcony is a reference to Vanilla Ice's claim that rap record producer Marion "Suge" Knight hung him up upside down on a hotel balcony in order to get Vanilla Ice to turn over his royalties. This relates to the rapper Peacey P shown earlier in the episode.
  • When the policemen arrive, So and So thinks she is in legal trouble, but all the policemen want is to watch the fight on Pay-per-view. This is a take of a similar scene in Homer vs. Lisa and the 8th Commandment when Eddie and Lou arrive to watch the fight on Homer's illegal cable hookup.
  • The PSOne is a smaller and redesigned version of the PlayStation video game console, which was released by Sony Computer Entertainment in 2000.
  • "Ola Toya is fighting Camptown Jr. at Caesar's tonight" is a reference to the De La Hoya-Mayweather Jr. Fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in May 2007.
  • Caesars is a casino brand owned by Harrah's Entertainment.
  • Olympic Man's blurred jersey is a reference to how trademarked logos on hats and shirts are often blurred in rap videos, especially on music channels such as MTV, which have strict policies on such logos.
