Trivia

The "binary system" conversation between the Planet Jackers mirrors the "Twin Cities" scene between Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare in 'Fargo.' The voice actors even sound similar. See more »

Goofs

In the segment "Planet Jackers," Zim is observing other invaders through his telescope. His outburst of 'Hey, what is this?" is meant as a reaction to the sudden static in his video feed, but the line is spoken well before static appears on his screen. See more »

Quotes

[Zim's telescope is malfunctioning]
Zim: Gir! Come to the observatory!
[Gir's head pops out of ceiling]
Gir: Yeees?
Zim: What have you done to the telescope?
Gir: Nothin'...
Zim: You haven't touched it? Something is broken and it's not your fault?
Gir: I know, I'm scared too!
