Achilles Gets the Point is a snow sculpture built by Nate and his teammates in the Ultimate Snowdown.


  • The poisonous arrow that punctured Achilles' heel was really an icicle that Nate and Teddy pulled off of Teddy's garage.
  • The blood around the icicle was the nail polish that Dee Dee Holloway applied to "pump up the drama".


  • In the Ultimate Snowdown, Nate's opponents, Nolan and his classmates from Jefferson Middle School, tried to take a bad approach in making their snow sculpture by patting snow around a real cavalier's suit of armor. Despite Nolan's team not technically cheating, their tactic wasn't very imaginative; the approach that the judges, Mrs. Everett and Mr. Rosa were looking for.
  • Nate's team beat Jefferson Middle School because their snow sculpture was very creative and Jefferson's was plain forgery.
  • It the first time that P.S. 38 won against Jefferson in seven years.
