    • Buster: Whoa, this is so cool. Did they have this exhibit here last year? Binky: That's the coat room, doofus!

    • Arthur: Guess we didn't do as good a job as we thought. D.W.: You mean you didn't. Daddy didn't say anything about the laundry. Mr. Read: (off-screen) Who cut a hole in my pajamas?!!

    • D.W.: You try being an accountant when you can only count to ten!

    • Arthur and D.W.: We're terrible parents!

    Trivia (5)

    • When we flash back to Binky with Mr. Ratburn's previous third-grade class, Prunella is not with them. Prunella had said that she was in Mr. Ratburn's class the previous year, so she should have been classmates with Binky!

    • In "The World of Tomorrow," while at the museum, Sue Ellen and George do the same thing that their look alikes did last year. Sue Ellen (and her look alike) rubs their feet on the carpet and shock Binky, at the static electricity exhibit. George (and his look alike) set off an alarm by sneaking and stealing a model car from an exhibit.

    • Viewers learn in "The World of Tomorrow" that Binky was in Mr. Ratburn's class the year before. Previously, it had only been stated that he was made to repeat third grade.

    • In Mr. Ratburn's other third grade class, the one Binky was in, there are kids that look, wear colors, and have characteristics just like Francine, Sue Ellen, Fern, Jenna, Arthur, Buster, George, and the Brain. The same thing applies to the students in Mr. Price-Jones' class.

    • In this episode, Binky hates mac'n'cheese, but in "Francine Redecorates" he says he loves mac'n'cheese!
