    • Philip: Simpson, the truth. Now, what are you up to?
      Simpson: Right now, it looks like I'm up to my bumpers in trouble.
      Arnold: Spill it, Simpson, or you're gonna be up on a 428. (to Willis) Heard that on a Columbo rerun.

    Notes (1)

    • The out-come of this story sees Mr. Drummond officially adopting Arnold and Willis. They choose to keep their surname as Jackson (as opposed to changing it to Drummond) in memory of their parents.
