For more quotes, see the episode's transcript

Stuffy: This is so cool. Robot Ray takes the day off, and we get to do his job. So, uh, what's his job again?
Hallie: Keeping a keen eye out for toys in trouble. You just need to watch the monitors. Got it?
Stuffy: Yeah, got it.
Hallie: If you need anything, I'll be a hippo's hop away. And don't forget, Stuffy. Pay attention!
Stuffy: I'm sorry. What was that? Oh, yes, right. Pay attention.
Hallie: Mm-hmm.

Tracy: We're the triceratops train, and I'm the leader, that's right, the leader. Head honcho, triceratops in charge. Big cheddar.
Stuffy: Wow, you have a lot of jobs.
Tracy: Just one, but it's very important. I pull the triceratops train. It's what I do.

Doc: I won't know what's wrong with you until I run some tests.
Hallie: Which one, Doc? Battery test? Bounce test, balance test?
Stuffy: Or my personal favorite, the belly button test. (Pokes belly button and giggles) Okay, it's not really a test. I just like poking my belly button. (Pokes belly button) Oh, belly button. (Everyone giggling)

Doc: So now that I know you're okay, I have to ask. What gave you the idea to race around with Ricardo?!
Trina: Actually, it was Tracy's idea. She said we needed a new leader, because she couldn't be fixed.
Doc: Well, that's strange.


  • Diagnosis: Slippy Slide-y Wheel Syndrome
  • Toys that debut in this episode: Tracy, Trina and Troy
  • During the "it's okay if you giggle, this'll only tickle a little" line from the "Time for You Checkup" song, Lambie could be heard but her mouth wasn't moving.
  • This is the third episode that showed Stuffy's love for pushing buttons. The first 2 were in "Mind Over Matter" and "Welcome to McStuffinsville".
  • While Stuffy was pushing buttons in the control room, the screens showed Dawn and Ferris, Stanley and Ian and Maddie and Norton.
  • When Stuffy, Lambie and Chilly were in Perry's room, they weren't wearing their hospital scrubs and coats or rescue lifecoats. This happened too in "Visiting Hours" when they were in Carlos' room.
