  • Episode Description
  • Princess Angelica: After intensive testing by the Rugrats, it is proven that Angelica is the princess, and contemplates leaving her "fake" parents (Drew & Charlotte, who makes her clean her room once a month) for her "real", royal ones (actually, Sal Fusco, "Home Office King" (555-KING), who charges $100 for a house call). The Odd Couple: Tommy is staying over at Chuckie's house for a long weekend while his parents go to Wisconsin for a cheese tasting tour. Tommy and Chuckie think they're going to get along great, but soon they start fighting about their different ways of doing stuff.moreless

    • Anjelica: (to Cynthia about her parents) Miss 'em? Why would I miss them, what did they ever do for me? (sadly) Except give me cookies and read me bedtime stories... and kiss me goodnight and... oh, Cynthia! What am I thinking?!

    • (Tommy gives Chuckie his dad's keys to hide and he leaves the room) Tommy: (running over to Phil and Lil) Phil! Lil! You were right! Chuckie is driving me crazy, the toys are supposed to go like this, the tinker blocks are supposed to go like that! And if I have to watch Space Trek Babies one more time, I'm gonna quack! Phil and Lil: We told you so!

    • (Tommy changes the channel on the TV) Chuckie: Hey! What are you doing? Space Trek Babies is my favorite show! Tommy: Oh I was just changing the channel, in my house we always watch Reptar.

    • Chuckie: My house, my house, my house! Well let me tell you something Tommy this isn't my house, this is MY house and sometimes when you're in MY house you gotta do some things MY way!

    • Drew: If we keep giving into whatever she wants, she's going to start to think she really is a princess! Angelica: (Overhearing) A real princess?!

    Notes (2)

    • The title of this episode, and the related situation, is based on The Odd Couple, which started in the mid-1960's as Neil Simon's famous Broadway play, then was seen as a motion picture starring Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon in 1967. It was followed by a successful ABC television series (1970-1975) that starred Tony Randall and Jack Klugman (later reprised in a series of Eagle Snacks commercials. An unsuccessful Black version was seen on ABC during the 1982-1983(?) season, which starred Ron Glass (a cop on Barney Miller & Randy Carmichael on Rugrats) and Demond Wilson (Lamont Sanford on Sanford and Son). Later, there was yet another version featuring women in the title roles (don't know if this was a TV movie or played on stage). The latest, currently touring the US, stars Jamie Farr and William Christopher, both former regulars on the hit TV series, M*A*S*H (CBS, 1972-1983).

    • Also note the "Pelvis" stamps in this episode, that Phil and Lil are putting on each other (so they can be shipped to China). These stamps look very similar to those famous stamps featuring "The King Of Rock & Roll", Elvis Presley. In 1993, the U.S. Postal Service invited the public to vote on what kind of Elvis is more appropriate, the old Elvis (in the days of his appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show (1950's)), or the new Elvis (the "Vegas" period, since his 1968 "comeback")). America has chosen the old design, the one that Phil and Lil were sticking on each other.

    • The T.V. show Chuckie watches Space Trek Babies is a reference to the show Star Trek.

    • The Bogo blocks that Phil and Lil were playing with are a spoof off of Lego blocks.
