  • This episode is pretty good, and well put together, but something was missing. The mystery of what happened to Wally is still at large ( to me).

  • Quotes (19)

    • Duchess: Let's see what I have to work with. (Rips of Eduardo's face mask) Eduardo: Yeooouuuuch! Duchess: Ohhh, it's worse than I ever imagined. Your skin is pasty, your pores are enormous, and those eyebrows hehhhhh show me the back. Just as i feared... hairy. It will not be easy but I think I can help. Eduardo: You make me look extra special good for the picture. But why you help me? You hate everyone and only help yourself. Duchess: I am helping myself. Your name is E, mine is D, which means we are next to each other in the photo. I am not about to stand next to someone who looks like a vagabond. Why you're almost as bad as Coco. (Points to Coco) Look at that unruly hair, skinny stick legs, and that belly, atrocious. Coco: Co? (Runs away) Duchess: Sit down and I shall begin the transformation.

    • Bloo: They were all ready to take it, when a galatic overlord took them all... Mac: You all ready said that. Bloo: Hunh? No. This is different. Instead of Madame Foster, Frankie built the robots.

    • Bloo: Bleep Bloop Blop Bleep. Mr Herriman: I beg your pardon? Bloo: Don't play smart with me harry. Or should I say model Six Five One O' Four.

    • Mac: Frankie, do you think you could tell us what happened in this picture? (Slight pause) Frankie: Oh, I know what you're up to, and you're not fooling me again! (Runs out of the room) Mac: That was weird.

    • Coco: Coco co! Mac: When did I call her fat?

    Notes (23)

    • The first seven residents of Foster's were: Madame Foster Mr. Herriman Duchess Uncle Pockets Camary and two other friends.

    • It seems strange how in the next-to-last picture, Frankie seems to shrink a bit, and Madame Foster seems to grow, however in the last picture, Frankie grows again, and Madame Foster shrinks a bit.

    • We see Bloo's fingers for the first time.

    • This is the first time Coco says something other than "coco." During one of Bloo`s "explanations" of the weird picture, she says "cheese" in a very deep voice.

    • All the friends stands on the stairs while Frankie and Madame Foster are on the floor every year for the photograph.

    • This is the second appearance of goo

    • If the picture is taken right after they fall from the trap staircase the stairs shouldn't be shown in the picture.

    • While Cameary tries to demonstrate, to Mr. Herriman, on how he can be in the picture, we see George Mucus standing on the steps in the Foyer; but afterward we see Duchess walking past the line of imaginary friends standing in the Waiting Room, waiting to get their spots on the stairs, and one of those friends she walks by is George Mucus.

    • Why would Mac and, Bloo ask the new guy about Wally if Bloo was at Fosters before him?

    • Goof: Mr. Herriman asks Wally to tell all the friends that the picture was re-scheduled and, Wally only knew about it so, wouldn't Mr. Herriman be in the picture too?
