The Great Snipe Hunt is the fourteenth episode of season two and the episode on the series.
Lumpus sends the scouts on a wild-goose chase after a snipe.
Lumpus plays a prank on the Bean Scouts as they are on the search for the "snipe," but Lumpus is caught and the Jelly Beans think he's a "snipe."
We learn that one of Edward's big brother's name is Mel. This is a continuity error, seeing as their names are later revealed to be Cheesly, Alpine, Fancy Pants and Phillip. However, Mel may actually be another Platypus brother.
According to Edward, the snipe hunt is a trick Lumpus pulls on the Beans every year.
There actually is a real-life creature living in the wild that is known as a snipe. Snipes are little white birds that live on rhino's in order to feast on parasites that live on the rhino's skin.
Samson: I heard about these kinds of things. The insane Scoutmaster takes his troupe out to the woods, uh, there's an axe, and a pile of bones, and, and some marbles, an' a bag of cereal! An' all they find is an eyebrow!
(Lumpus glares at Samson, now wearing a huge bushy monobrow.)
Raj: It is obvious that we are going to the hot springs.
Clam: No. Night picnic.
Lazlo: I think we're going out to collect glow worms!
Samson: Killer glow worms.
Edward: (mockingly) Hold onto your eyebrows!
Lumpus: Did I put in a request for stupid comments?!
(Edward's eyebrows fall right off.)
