  • Quotes (3)

    • (after Carl and the gang are all on the plank) Captain Hightower: Any last words before you meet your maker? Steve: Yeah. (presses the home button on Myra's time device) So long, suckers! Captain Hightower: That's a very strange choice of words. (they all disappear back to the present and the captain falls off the plank and into the sea; the shipmates cheer)

    • Steve: At the end of his hunger strike, I gave Gandhi a cookie. Eddie: What'd he say? Steve: Well, he said, "Oh, thank you very much! I am very hungry!"

    • Eddie: Steve combined his teleportation pad with his time machine so now he can travel anywhere in history. Harriette: Isn't that dangerous? I mean, for people in history.

    Notes (4)

    • The German episode title is "Captain Carl, der Dicke", meaning "Captain Carl, the Fat One".

    • This episode, the last episode to air on ABC, featured a special 3D scene, for which the network distributed glasses through a special promotional arrangement with Wendy's Restaurants.

    • Music: "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)" performed by Reginald VelJohnson, Kellie Shanygne Williams, Michelle Thomas, Jaleel White, and Cherie Johnson.

    • ABC canceled Family Matters (and TGIF companion Step by Step) at the end of the season. The series was picked for a final year by CBS. Rumors also circulated that Family Matters would be picked by The WB Television Network.
