  • Episode Description
  • A wild story told by an 11-year-old about his recent trip to the moon enthralls Eb and Lisa. Oliver believes none of it, especially when the kid sells Lisa a "moon rock" for $14. But once the rock stars beeping under the moonlight (and when Arnold snorts at it), he suspects he's the subject of a practical joke. Oliver ships it off to NASA for their scientists to examine.

    • Oliver: Can I ask you something? What would make a rock beep?
      Wilson
      : (dismissing Oliver as a kook) I'd say about three martinis.

    • Oliver: Where did you get the idea I was such a big drinker?
      Lisa: Watching you belt down the martoonies.

    • Oliver: (when Arnold walks in) Well, it's all I need. It's the Tiny Tim of the hog set!

    Notes (1)

    • Johnny Whitaker appeared just a few episodes earlier (#138 The Confrontation) playing a different child, Willie.

    Trivia (2)

    • Dinky claims he got the plans for his moon rocket from Popular Mechanics magazine. He can't show it to Oliver because it crashed into Simpson's Swamp upon re-entry.

    • For just $87, Haney offers the Douglases dirt dug up from the Sea of Tranquil-lil-ity on the moon and two gen-u-wine Mars rocks hurled at him by a flying saucer.
