Paging Dr. Drake
Foam Finger is the ninth episode of the third season of Drake & Josh. It aired on October 8, 2005.
Drake and Josh are doing their homework one night. Audrey, Megan, and Walter are watching a Padres game. Josh tells them that eight years ago, some kid started a fight with him over the last foam finger at a Padres game. The kid turned out to be Drake, as they remember the game when they were 8. The flashback goes back to the year 1997 and Drake and Josh both tell their side of the story. Later, Drake and Josh restart the fight and in the process, Josh rips the finger off of the foam finger. Drake then moves out to the living room, then the bathroom, then Megan's room. Later, Megan calls Lenny Spodnick (the man who sold the foam fingers), who comes over and remembered exactly what happened at the game. It turns out that Megan started the fight by throwing a cookie, hitting young Josh in the head. She says "Wow, I was cool even then". When Josh is in his room, Drake moves back in and the two make up and become friends again.
Josh: You want a mouthful of fist?
Drake: You want a butt full of foot?
Josh: Bring it, Parker!
Drake: You bring it!
Josh: You bring it!
Megan: Come on! Boob fight!
Drake: You Know what; I'm not gonna fight you. I got a better idea.
Josh: What do you mean "better idea"? I'M SPEAKING TO YOU!
Drake: You calling me a liar?!
Josh: I ain't calling you a truther!
Walter: All Right Boys.
Josh: You ruined my first baseball game.
Drake: Oh; Poor Josh didn't get his foam finger.
Audrey: That's enough Drake!
Walter: Stop It Josh!
Drake: I hope they cancel Oprah!
Josh: You take that back!
Josh: That finger should belong to me.
Drake: Yeah, well you can't have it. You know why?
Drake: Cause I'm number one!
Josh: Okay, You wanna tussle?!
Walter: You can’t sleep in the bathroom either!
- Fred Stoller, who also played Mr. Lowe in Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide and voiced Mr. Beaker in "All Grown Up" and Rusty in "Handy Manny" guest starred in this episode as Lenny Spodnick.
- When Drake and Josh are fighting that who started the fight about the Foam Finger scene 8 years ago, It occurs in 1997 what happened to Drake and Josh in the flashback. Because in this episode Drake and Josh have been thinking about what happened in 1997 before they remembered in 2005.
- This is the only episode in which we see Drake, Josh and Megan as children during the flashbacks as well as old people at the end.
- In Dan Schneider's other show, "Henry Danger", in the episode, "Tears of the Jolly Beetle," a clip is briefly seen of Josh saying his famous line, "I ain't calling you a truther!"
- When Josh rips the foam finger he wanted 8 years ago Drake got instead, he also could've ripped it for Drake eating his apple strudel and ruining his childhood when Drake got it first.
- Megan says that after Drake and Josh fought over the foam finger, they didn't meet until seventh grade but in Mindy's Back, Drake and Josh say that they met in fourth grade.
- When Josh tells his version of how he and Drake fought at the Padres game, in the flashback, his shirt is unbuttoned with a blue T-shirt inside, but when Drake tells his version, 8 year old Josh's shirt is buttoned up, without the blue T-shirt showing.
- When Megan switches the note on the Strudel the second time Josh is facing her full on and could not have missed seeing her do it. It's likely that he did see Megan switching the note and wanted to test Drake's stupidity.
- When Josh says that there was no little girl from Drake's flashback he says, "What would a dying British orphan be doing at a Padre's game?", even though it was never said that she was an orphan.
- It is possible that he was exaggerating.
- When Drake gives the foam finger to Josh, he says he fixes it with a hot glue gun, but there is no sign of glue ever being on the finger.
- In the flashback of what really happened, at one point, young Megan throws her cookie on young Josh, but when the shot zooms out on Drake and Josh, the cookie is not on the ground.
- Also, young Drake still has the foam finger as soon as Josh starts beating him up, but when security guards came, Drake seems to have lost the foam finger.
- When Walter and Audrey leave the living room, Drake's cans fall onto them. However, it is unknown why the cans didn't fall on them when they first entered the room.
- When the little girl says that she's got 3 weeks to live and wanted to go first in line, she could've just waited in line since it was really short with only Drake and Josh in it, she had lots of time anyway to live, she also talks in a weird accent but in the next scene, she talks normal and changes her voice, she may have been just pretending to act like an orphan girl just so she can go first in line to get a foam finger.
- After Drake moves out of the room, the camera is showing outside of the house at night and you can see lights on in the house through the front door but when the scene begins entering the house where Drake is sleeping on the living room window, it's dark in the house and there's no lights on.
