    • Alexander: I wonder what's in the pot? Melody: I hope it's clam chowder. I just love clam chowder. (laughs)

    • Josie: Ooooh! A creature plant! (She and Valerie start beating on it) Alexandra: Oh! Help! Stop, you beady brains! Stop! Melody: Oh golly! It sounds like Alexandra. The plant must have eaten her. (Starts sobbing) Josie: It is Alexandra! Alexandra: Who were you expecting, Scooby-Doo?

    • Valerie: Jungle drums! Alexander: That's an unfriendly beat if I ever heard one! Melody: I'll teach them a groovy beat. (Drums on a hollow log with a pair of sticks) Josie: Melody, stop! Alexandra: Knock it off, Melody! If the headhunters hear you, they'll know where we are. Melody: Oh, don't be silly, Alexandra. They know that already. Look! (The group find themselves surrounded) Alexandra: Yikes! (Everyone else gasps) Alexander: Now I know how General Custer felt!

    Notes (1)

    • This is the first episode that reveals Melody's unique attribute: Her ears wiggle when danger is nearby.

    Trivia (3)

    • Goof: Alexander's glasses fall off when he reacts to his sister tricking them onto the wrong flight. When confronting her in the next shot, they're right back on his face without even though he wasn't seen picking them up.

    • Goof: After the gang fall when Alexandra causes Josie to open the automatic door, Valerie's skin is very pale in the next shot.

    • Goof: Alexander's glasses don't fall off when Melody accidentally hits him with a potted plant, but in the next shot, they're off his face.

    Allusions (2)

    • Alexandra: Who were you expecting, Scooby-Doo? This is an obvious reference to the mystery-solving great dane, one of Hanna-Barbera's most famous cartoon characters.

    • Alexander: Now I know how General Custer felt! Reference to a major historical event in the 19th century, known as Custer's Last Stand.
