Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia To create the effect of bad dubbing, writer Steve Oedekerk wrote a script of nonsensical dialogue for the actors to say. The real dialogue was dubbed during post-production. For example, when Chosen One says, "But, isn't Betty a woman's name?" If you read his lips, he says, "But, isn't Trouble a family game?" See more »
Goofs When the Chosen One hallucinates about Whoa and Mu-Shu-Fasa, we see that Whoa has Jennifer Tung's two normal breasts rather than one giant one. See more »

Quotes Master Betty: I have been called bad before. Many have said I do things that are not correct to do. I don't believe in talk such as this. I am nice man, with happy feelings. All of the time. First, a joke. What do you get when you cross an owl with a bungee cord?
[pause]
Master Betty: My ass. Nyah, haha, haha, haha, ENOUGH.
