A.N.T. Farm Wiki

"chANTs of a lifetime" is the sixteenth episode in Season 2 of A.N.T. Farm. It first aired on Disney Channel in the United States on November 23, 2012.


Chyna is asked to join her favorite singing group, Trifecta (Syerra and Laurin) after their lead vocalist, Darlene, gets incredibly ill from food poisoning (she ate a rotten chimichanga and cooked in the bus' tailpipe that had lots of dirt and mud) and the other members hear her sing. The next day, Chyna is treated like a superstar. Plus, Syerra and Laurin show up in disguise and tell Chyna that Darlene decided to quit for good, and they want her to replace her, and soon, they will go on a year-long tour. Chyna happily agrees, much to Olive and Fletcher's dismay. With Chyna gone, Lexi decides to put on another school musical where she will finally be the star. Furthermore, the A.N.T. Program is being invaded by big kids because Olive and Fletcher are completely helpless without Chyna. Later on, it is revealed Darlene has been sabotaging them because Syerra and Laurin fired her for being way too aggressive. Darlene plans to roast them on a lighthouse for revenge, but her plan backfires when Darlene falls out of the lighthouse. In the end, Chyna admits that she misses her friends and family, so she decides to quit Trifecta. Then the very next day when she gets back to school she kicks all of the big kids out and accidentally hits Lexi's nose with the door and her musical is that evening. So China fills in for her and she becomes the star again.

  • Another running gag is that people's phones ringing and it's their mom. The mom asks what they're doing and they respond by saying nothing.
  • A few goofs from this episode is that it would not be easy to access the top floor of a lighthouse, being that close to light like that would blind them and if they were tied to light like that they would start to burn.
  • It is possible that the fan who tried to sneak on the bus was Fletcher.
  • If you look closely, China and the others are playing Gamecube in the bus.
  • The Disco mode on the bus headlights is the same music from Saturday Night Skidmore in ConfinemANT.
  • Due to iCarly's series finale "iGoodbye" airing the same night, this special got low ratings.

  • One goof is that when Chyna was trying to convince Paisly not to "get" Syerra and Laurin, she had her arms up. But if you look at her right after that, she's holding a tray.
  • Angus partially breaks the fourth wall when he reads Lexi's play script. He says Angus seems like a side character and he wants to play the lead role who he assumes is Chyna.
  • Another goof is Syerra and Laurin on the bus said there were three bedrooms. But where would the bus driver sleep if there were only three bedrooms?
    • It could be that the bus driver slept in his chair or on the couch if he needed to rest if he was not driving.
