Smith: Hi, this is Ron Smith. I'm the director of 3-2-1 Penguins! And I'm here with the whole penguins crew.
 
   
Zidgel: Starting with Zidgel, of course. It's captain. Hello out there, one of my fans! Uh, where are the cameras? Aren't my fans going to able to see me?

The story is a parody of J. R. R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" series and the film trilogy.

Smith: No, they're going to watch the episode while we talk about it.

====Trivia====
  +
*This is the last time the 1998 Big Idea closing bumper is used.
  +
*This is the first main VeggieTales episode where there's no commentary track. Phil Vischer and [[Tim Hodge]] later apologized about it. Though a character commentary track was featured in the DVD.
  +
*Shortly after the episode's release, Phil Vischer got a noticed from New Line Cinema about them not legally parodying the "Lord of the Rings" films without permission. This is the reason why [[The Wonderful Wizard of Ha's]] was late in production.

**A 200 pound marshmallow Peep.
   
Zidgel: I think that will disappoint a lot of people out there, but it's probably best since it looks like Midgel just pulled out of bed.

====Remarks====

*Some of the other flobbits at Billboy's party are just cardboard cutouts.

*Bob seems to show his inner feelings of the What Have We Learned Song. Even Larry thinks he's somewhat out of place.
   
Midgel: I've been up for hours. I guess I had been preening myself all morning. I've been working on getting some more power from the main thrusters on the ship. A ship's mechanic's job is never done.

Smith: This is an ensemble cast, there really isn't a star.
 
 
Zidgel: I think my fan mail would say otherwise.
 
 
Smith: Everybody's fan mail comes to me first and we've gotten exactly two letters from your fans. By the way, your mother and hair-dresser both say hello.
 
 
Midgel: Hey, what kind of--what kind of car is that? Look at that.
 
 
Smith: I believe it's a 97 Generica.
 
 
Kevin: Pretty cool.
 
 
Fidgel: Oh!
 
 
Midgel: Ouch.

Midgel: Uh, they're back.
 
 
Zidgel: I-I I can't see anybody here. Oh.
 
 
Zidgel: What is that?
 
 
Kevin: I think it's one of those.
 
 
Zidgel: Looks like a Fill-Go Predicter.
 
 
Midgel: He's got that right.
 
 
Midgel: That too.
 
 
Kevin: Oh dear!
 
 
Fidgel: Gracious, that looks painful.
 
 
Zidgel: Looks like an episode of the W.W.F.
 
 
Kevin: What? What's happened to her hands?
 
 
Fidgel: Hmm, she must have gotten them stuck in the trans-species distal-regenerator.
 
 
Kevin: What's folly?
 
 
Midgel: Those clothes she's got on.
 
 
Zidgel: You know, that's what we wound up learning at the end. Oh, yeah.
 
 
Midgel: (imitates video game's music for a few seconds) I wonder if, uh, he remembered to conne--oh. It's dark, right?
 
 
Fidgel: Pie, a filled pastry, equal to 3.14. How do you determine the area of that tin plate? You have to use Pi! (laughs)
 
 
Zidgel: (laughs).
 
 
Midgel: Bangus and mash? Aren't they the bulks who run that driving instruction place?
 
 
Kevin: Yeah, they're right next to bubble and squeak, my tummy doctors.
 
 
Zidgel: Also a nickname you don't want to try more than once.
 
 
Fidgel: That was a difficult year for you at the Academy, wasn't it?
 
 
Zidgel: (sniffs) Yeah.

Kevin: Even better than a hot stack of pancreas.
 
 
Kevin: I expect that would take a while too.
 
 
Fidgel: There we are!
 
 
Zidgel: That was the first contact we've had since we landed on that shelf.
 
 
Midgel: We're naked.
 
 
Zidgel: I thought it was a little drafty.
 
 
Kevin: Those were those new uniforms we got from the emperor. The ones he wore going down the street that one time.
