    • Francine: Muffy, guess what I heard about the new girl. She's some kind of criminal on the run who had to come here to escape prison! (Arthur, Buster, the Brain Prunella, Binky, Molly, Rattles, and Fern join the phone conversation.) Brain: She's weird and she's creepy! No one knows exactly where she came from. Prunella: When you're hiding out, you always go to a small town. (the phone chatter resumes inaudibly, and more callers join in to chat about Sue Ellen, but Binky is the only one who hasn't spoken a word) Binky: Hello? Hello?! What is everyone talking about?!! (everyone else shuts up and hangs up, when another caller joins in the conversation) Binky: Hey! Did ya hear about the new kid? Mr. Ratburn: Who is this?! Binky: Oops! Wrong number! (laughs; hangs up)

    • Arthur: Is that music? Buster: Yeah, outer space music!

    • Buster: Oh well, maybe they are friendly aliens.

    • Arthur: Alan? Alan who? Oh, you mean the Brain.

    • Brain's dad: Alan, you could take a few lessons from Arthur.

    • Sue Ellen lived in San José, capital of Costa Rica and before she lived in Nigeria.

    Trivia (2)

    • During Arthur's fantasy of him and Brain working on a time machine together, Brain carelessly drops a nuclear core somewhere inside it. In reality, it would explode.

    • Around the time Sue Ellen threatens "Give me the master program or I'll ruin your computer forever!" the computer screen is blank, but when Sue Ellen pours tea all over the keyboard, the screen shuts down.

    Allusions (1)

    • In Arthur's fantasy of Sue Ellen, the man, Dr. Zimmer, says "Thank you, Miss Jones." The name may be a possible reference to Stacy Jones from another PBS show: Shining Time Station starring Thomas the Tank Engine.
