Stranded is the fifth episode of Season 3.


Another one of Jimmy and Cindy's silly arguments cause them end up on a deserted island with Carl, Sheen and Libby when the Hover Car runs out of fuel on a trip to the sea, leaving them having to learn to forage and thrive. Jimmy and Cindy enjoy life on the island so much that they want to stay.


The story starts out with Jimmy and Cindy are seen arguing about if the equator is visible or not. Jimmy decides to prove it to Cindy by taking her, Libby, Sheen, and Carl to the equator by Jimmy's hovercar. When they get there, Cindy tries to point the equator out, Jimmy trying to prove her wrong, puts the hovercar on auto-pilot and tells Cindy that it's not the equator. Cindy leans too far on the edge of the hovercar and falls, Jimmy grabs her hand, but can't pull them both up, and they fall overboard. The hovercar, on auto-pilot flies away. Sheen tries to steer the hovercar, but couldn't get it to work until he disabled the autopilot.

Jimmy and Cindy make it to a deserted island. They both start arguing with each other again, about what just happened. They decide to go their separate ways. Jimmy's laser beam cuts coconuts from the tree to eat, but they all fall on Jimmy. Cindy who's laughing at him, gets a bunch of bananas, but a monkey gets mad and starts chasing Cindy. Jimmy tells her to drop the bananas, and she does so, and the monkey stops. They both decide to make a truce to work together, so they walk together in the forest. Cindy saves Jimmy from a giant Venus flytrap, by pushing him away. Jimmy then saves Cindy when she is being strangled by a giant boa constrictor, by giving it ginseng, a herbal muscle relaxer. They both run away and jump off a cliff into the water. Jimmy and Cindy are having a wonderful time together, and they start to show their feelings for each other. 

Meanwhile, Carl, Sheen and Libby try to go rescue Jimmy and Cindy, but the Hover Car runs out of fuel and they crash into the ocean. They see an ocean liner, but they accidentally launch a torpedo and sink it. 

The next morning, Jimmy and Cindy have built 2 tree houses with elevators. Jimmy uses his watch to start a fire, and Cindy makes them eggs for breakfast. The two swim with the sea turtles and swing in the trees with the monkeys. Cindy's vine breaks and she falls, Jimmy catches her, and they swing away. The two are sitting at the fire talking about the day they had, how they want to stay on the island together. Jimmy tells Cindy her got her a present, an oysters. Cindy's confused at first, Jimmy tells her to open it, inside is a pink pearl. Cindy says it's the nicest thing anyone's ever done for her. The two hold hands and watch the sunset together.

Sheen and Libby wake up the next morning and they notice Carl's gone, who just then he pops up out of the ocean with several oranges. Libby asks where he got them and tells them he got it from an island. Sheen and Libby are overwhelmed. Libby, Sheen and Carl eventually find Cindy and Jimmy. Jimmy knows how to make alternative fuel for the hovercar, so they all look for fuel. Cindy is sad that they have to leave the island just as they were getting close. Libby, finds a carving on a tree that Cindy made that says" J+C forever" with a heart around it, she then asks Cindy about it, she denies anything about it.

They all put the fuel in the hovercar, but Sheen stupidly puts in some weird rocks, which turn out to be giant spider egg cases. The mother spider comes, and Jimmy forms a plan. They use Sheen as a distraction, while Jimmy causes the treehouses, he and Cindy were living in, to collapse on the mother spider. So it gives them time to on in the hovercar. Cindy tells Jimmy that they don't have to go and just stay on the island and be together forever. Jimmy's conflicted, he wants to be with Cindy forever, but can't leave his friends and family and neither can she.

When they get back, Sheen, Libby, and Carl are having Sam's new tropical shakes and Jimmy and Cindy are pretending to argue over if Australia is a country or a continent. While they're fighting they get closer and their hands meet, making them awkwardly smile and pull back. They decide then to leave the Candy Bar to see Australia and settle the current argument, and to be alone together.


Jimmy: And I'm telling you that you can't see the equator!
Cindy: Just an unpopulated area like the Pacific Ocean!
Jimmy: WRONG! The equator's invisible and apparently so is your brain!
Cindy: Well, at least my head doesn't need no time zone!
Jimmy: Why'd you have to go there?!
(unfinished mixed arguments {blahblahblah...})
Carl: All these arguments are making me tense..
Sheen: Just a little longer, Carl. Our adventure should start any minute!
Carl: What adventure?
Sheen: You'll see!
Cindy: I'm telling you, you can see the equator in the Pacific Ocean!
Jimmy: No, you can't! But I guess I'll just have to take you there to prove it.
(Jimmy and Cindy look at him)
Sheen: What? I'm helping..
Sheen: Ah the sea, who's water grows our gardens, who's electric eels light our homes, who's jellyfish fill our jelly donuts.
Libby: Sheen, none of those things do any of those things.
Sheen: Hey! You try staying awake staring at a stupid ocean!
(grumbling sound)
Libby: What's that sound? Carl, you're supposed to watch our readings.
Carl: I'am. Their fine.
Libby: Well, what does the fuel gauge say?
Carl: It's fine. It's on "E" for...."engored with gas"...?
(motor stops and hovercar falling) (Everyone is screaming)
Libby: Assume crash positions!
Sheen: If you say so... (Carl and Sheen making faces)
Libby: You know what...just go back to the screaming. (Everyone screams again) (Hover car splash in the ocean)
Carl: Is everybody okay?
Sheen: Well, I'am a little concerned that we're STRANDED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE OCEAN!!!!
Carl: Calm down, Sheen.
Sheen: Don't tell me to calm down! This is all your fault! Anybody with a brian knows that "E" stands"elp yourself to some gas"!
Carl: Does not!
Libby: Guys!
Sheen: Does so!
Libby: Guys!
Carl: Does not!
Sheen: DOES SO!
Libby: GUYS! This isn't helping! Now we need to get through this, we just need a strategy.
Carl: Libby's right.
Sheen: Kiss up.
Libby: Now we're gonna need protein
Sheen: Right, let's cut to the chase: who's eating who?
Carl: Who's eating whom?
Sheen: That's it! I'm eating you!
Carl: Not if I eat you first!
Sheen: I'll eat you in your sleep!
Carl: Better not.
Libby: I'm gonna chow down on both of you if you don't keep QUIET!
Carl: She's right and at least we're in a boat, Jimmy and Cindy have been treading water for hours.
Sheen: Poor guys.

Sheen: I won't give up! Did Lewis and Clark give up?! Did Charles Lindbergh give up?! Did Saul Hoffnitz give up?!
Libby: Who's Saul Hoffnitz?
Sheen: I give up. The point is I'm not going back to Retroville without Jimmy and Cindy! I'm gonna find them even if I HAVE TO TEAR OUT EVERY SINGLE PIECE OF EQUIPMENT IN HERE!!!

Jimmy: Finished, now put your fuel ingredients into the gas tank.
(Both are put all the ingredients into the gas tank, but Sheen pick up some strange rocks and put them into the gas tank)
Jimmy: Sheen, what kind's of rocks are those?
Sheen: Well I didn't know what shale look like, but I found these cool rock deep in the jungle. Look!
(Sheen give the strange rock to Jimmy)
Jimmy: These don't feel like rocks at all. they feel like.....
(Libby screamed and they saw a giant spider attack the hovercar and all are hiding in the rock)
Cindy: Jimmy, that's the spider that made the web we saw!
Jimmy: I think we put some of her eggs in the gas tank!
Carl: If it destroys the hovercar we'll be stranded here forever.
Sheen, Libby, and Carl: Did she just call you Jimmy?

Sheen: Huh, what? OH NO! Not another day at SEA! I'll surely go MAD!
Libby: Sheen, calm down!
Sheen: Unless I'm already mad! And the two of you are a MIRAGE!
Libby: Keep yelling if you want a mirage slap in your face!
Sheen: Hey where was that mirage Carl?
Libby: Carl? (gasps) OH NO! CARL'S GONE!
Carl: Oh hey guys beautiful morning huh? Help yourself with some fruits.
Libby: Carl, where did you get those?
Carl: What, the freckles? I have very pale skin, and with the sun, ..
Carl: Ow... They're from that island.
Sheen: Land Ho!
Libby: (gasps) We're saved! ah ha ha! Carl, why didn't you say something?
Carl: Hey, I got the fruit-- I can't do everything.
Sheen: Whoo-hoo, I love this hallucination (Carl eats the fruit)
(Jimmy and Cindy make it to a deserted island, all soaked and miserable.)
Jimmy: We made it, Cindy. We're alive.
Cindy:;Not for long. My mom's gonna murder me when she hears I ditched school.
Cindy: Oh, great! Look at these clothes. The salt water's already faded the colors.
Jimmy: Cindy, I don't think you understand.
(Cindy climbs down the rock, freaking out.)
Cindy: Oh no!
Jimmy: What?
Cindy: My piano lesson! Neutron, if I'm not back by 4:30, I'm in big trouble.
Jimmy: Cindy, listen to me! We're on an uncharted island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean! And the only people who know we're here are flying away from us at 100 miles per hour! We may never be found.
Sheen: Hungry..... All hope fading. Promise to remember me, Libby.
Libby: Sheen, it's only been a few...
Libby: I promise!
Sheen: Carl, I've loved you like a brother, and I know you've felt the same.
Carl: Hmm...Oh, yeah
Sheen: Best friend (when he realizes Carl was eating) HEY! ARE YOU EATING SOMETHING?!
Carl: (muffles and nods no)
Sheen: YES YOU ARE,YOU LITTLE THEIF! WHAT ARE YOU EATING?! HAND IT OVER! I NEVER DID LIKE YOU! (Grabs Carl and tries the get the chocolate)
Sheen: GIVE IT, AHA! (He falls off of Carl)
Libby: CARL!
Carl: I was going to share, and I ate one, but it was so good, so I ate four and I...I...I'M A TERRIBLE PERSON!
Sheen: YOU GOT THAT RIGHT! (throws the chocolate away) GET HIS LEGS, LIBBY! (he grabs Carl)
Libby: Sheen, you can't throw Carl overboard.
Sheen:(He halts) Why not?
Libby: Because he might have more FOOD ON HIM! (they start pulling Carl back in and they hear a horn blow) Guys, did you hear something?
Carl: It wasn't me.
Libby: (gasps) It's an ocean liner! Try to get their attention!
Carl: But they're so far away.
Libby: Jimmy must keep a flare in here look around! (saw an emergency button) I think this is it.
Carl: "For emergencies only."
(A light points towards at the ship and explosion)
Passengers: We're okay!
Libby: Um....maybe we should just keep this to ourselves.


  • Regarding Jimmy and Cindy's argument about Australia at the end, they are both right. However, they could've just been bluffing. Either way the cat is out of the box.
  • It doesn't make sense for Jimmy, Carl, Sheen and Libby to shocked at Cindy using Jimmy's name, since she has used his name plenty of times. It doesn't help she literally said his name twice before Jimmy brought it up. However, it could be justified, as Cindy has only used Jimmy's name in serious and sincere situations, not in casual ones. 
  • When Libby says that Sheen's statements of the oceans resources don't do the things he says they do, it is not fully accurate, since the sea's water could be filtered and used to grow plants. It helps that there is plenty of flora grown down in the sea.
  • When Sheen talks about jellyfish filling our jelly donuts, he could be referencing SpongeBob Squarepants.
  • The half-hour episode is ranked #32 during the "Top 100 Greatest Moments In Nicktoon History".
  • When Libby says "Keep yelling if you want a mirage slap in your face" the captions say "I'm going to mirage slap your face".
  • Sheen calls Carl a pig in this episode.
