Quotes

Donkeylips: Hey, Sponge.
Sponge Harris: Yeah?
Donkeylips: Maybe if I did lose weight I wouldn't get picked on as much. I'm a little husky, you know?
Sponge Harris: Yeah I know. But getting picked on isn't so bad. Someday I'll get rich inventing this cool space laser and I'll have this giant company and people like Budnick will be emptying my waste baskets.
Donkeylips: Yeah! With gum on the bottom.
Sponge Harris: And big dripping wads of Kleenex!
Donkeylips: Yeah, and he has to pluck it out with his teeth! That'd be cool!
Sponge Harris: Revenge!

Memorable show about summer camp...
7 July 2003 | by MulligaSee all my reviews

"Salute Your Shorts" (SYS) began with all the stereotypical characters. It became something else entirely. With inspired mayhem like a visit from Ug's horrific niece to a capture the flag game gone "Apocalypse Now," SYS is a sister show to "Hey Dude" - somewhat realistic, but always funny. The use of classical music (such as Tchaichovsky's "Marche Slave") as a soundtrack in many places gives the show a nice ironic, surreal feel that current Nick comedies sorely lack.

Fave Eps

Capture the Flag - Very cool spoofs of many war movies. Go Donkey Lips and ZeeZee!

Wrestling Team - Seeing Donkey Lips and Sponge trying to make the team is hilarious and heartwarming, too.

A night at the movies - A change of setting means cinema based hilarity.
