Coming Soon!. 


  • Despite being a "family cruise," Ben is inexplicably absent in this episode.
  • Elise Sr. and Elise Jr.'s secrets are revealed in this episode (though, only temporarily since everyone's memories were mostly wiped.)
  • Mr. Mumbles gets mentioned in this episode.
  • This episode is the final appearance of Don and Elise Sr.
  • "The DMV" and "The Mummy" are referenced in flashbacks when Chris says he's mentioned the cruise to Dan before (Chris apparently mentioned the cruise off-screen in these episodes)
  • The ship is called the "S.S. Funtanic"
  • near the end of the episode, everyone starts confessing secrets
  • Chris ate the Gingerbread house Elise made last Christmas, and blamed it on the Mailman. (apparently Elise already knew this.)
  • Elise confesses the truth about her actual job, a "Top Operative for a shadowy quasi-governmental agency specializing in espionage, arms deals and assassinations".
  • Elise Sr. confesses that she's #5 on the FBI's most wanted list under the name "The Lady".
  • Don claims he's an half-alien hybrid sent down on Earth to enslave man-kind, but in reality he just said that because he wanted to be included.
  • Dan's confession (only after being prompted) is that "it's possible" he's wasted his life on petty and ultimately meaningless quests for vengeance.
  • The end credits for this episode seem to hint that this was intended to be the final episode aired, as it has a list of births and marriages during the production of Dan Vs.
