Summary Edit

Pepper Ann wants to get a pair of Megablade 3000s, but Lydia won't buy them for her. Instead, she tells her that she can earn the money herself buy mowing the lawn. Pepper Ann enlists Milo's help and soon becomes so power-hungry that she turns their lawn-mowing business into a town-wide franchise that nearly ruins their friendship.


Milo: Easy, Rockefeller. It is not to own. It is to mow.
Dieter: I love to cut the grass that grows in the yard!
Milo: Let's mow with all the colors of the wind.
Milo: You desecrated a masterpiece.

Pepper Ann: What?
Milo: You maimed topiary.
Pepper Ann: I what?

Milo: You whacked Dieter's giraffe!
Lydia: Mow! Save! Make your dream come true, Peppie!


  • This is the second appearance of Ned Diggety (the first being "Ziterella"), however he is not portrayed as Pepper Ann's cousin in this episode.
  • This is the only episode where we see Dieter's eyes.

The Desk Gag Edit

"Ooh, a bicentennial quarter!"


  • When Pepper Ann confronts Dieter while he's on the mower, she's wearing a blazer. But when the scene focuses on Dieter, she can be seen wearing her usual purple shirt. This happens again when Pepper Ann tells Milo that now he can make Dieter's lawn more beautiful.
  • Why exactly is Dieter sleeping with his glasses on?
