Bertram: No! I don't wanna go! I wanna stay here with no responsibility in these really comfy clothes.

Jessie: Bertram, there's no 2-ply toilet paper here.
Luke: There's not even single ply!
Bertram: Outta my way! (climbs up ladder, pants fall off) Can you get that for me?
All: EWWW!

Zuri: I'm blind!!!
Scientist, talking to Luke: Island of the Monsters! That legend got me my fake monster! If you stayed a little longer, I would have brought out... (puts on mask) Crab Woman!

Zuri: You are all kinds of weird!

Jessie, Ravi: AHHH!!!

Jessie: Idiot! (throws mask, hits Bertram)

Bertram: OWWW!

Jessie: That sounded like Bertram!

Luke: Yeah, I'd recognized that whine anywhere!


  • This episode was part of Disney Channel's "Summer Adventure Weekend".
  • This episode was promoted as the sequel to Take the A-Train... I Think?.
  • Disney Channel promoted this episode under the title, "Lost in the Jungle". The episode Take The A-Train... I Think? was also promoted by Disney Channel as 'Lost in the City. Ironically, this episode was promoted as the sequel to that episode, which could
    be a reason why both episodes start with 'Lost in the...' (promotional titles).
  • Bertram's hoarding obsession has been mentioned, although, he got rid of all of it.
  • This is the second time a JESSIE episode aired on Friday the 13th. The first was Glue Dunnit: A Sticky Situation.
  • The blue-breasted gooby is a parody of the real animal, the blue-footed booby. The "breasted" part of the name is a reference to the word "booby" in the real animal's name. This is one of the few times that Disney has ever used dirty humor.
  • Since Mr. Kipling revealed to be a female in The Secret Life of Mr. Kipling, it is probable that the "sweetheart" wild lizard in this episode was a boy.


  • Bertram gave up wearing pants, but you can clearly see that his shorts are under the skirt.
  • When Dr.Adams takes his fake claw out of the door, the hole is no longer visible in the next cut.
