    • Lady Aberlin: Trolley, how long has this all been going on? (trolley chimes) Oh, it's terrible, really. (trolley chimes) What's your serial number? (trolley chimes) I'm 34567.

    • Mister Rogers: Well, he isn't the happiest Great Uncle Friday that you've seen in a long time.
      Betty Aberlin: Oh, no. What's wrong?
      Mister Rogers: Lady Elaine has been up to her tricks again, and she's moved the Eiffel Tower...

    • Mister Rogers: It's fun to play with bags. But not plastic bags. Those we throw away - right away!

    • Mister Rogers: (referring to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe) I like that place. But they've had some sad times.

    • Mister Rogers: Sometimes potatoes come in burlap bags. But this is not potatoes. In here, next is a plastic bag. I bet you know what it is already. Do you? It has a string on the back. It's not a bow and arrow. It's not a harp. It's a picture!

    Notes (1)

    • In this episode, we see a rare glimpse of King Friday's Throne Room.

    Trivia (1)

    • It's strange to hear Betty Aberlin ask if she should take a gun to the Neighbor of Make-Believe!
