    • Jamie: This is terrific Vicki. I'll be the only kid in the neighborhood with my own ghost.
      Vicki: What's a ghost?
      Jamie: A ghost? Well, a ghost is a strange lookin' thing from another world.
      Harriet: Hi guys!
      Vicki: Hi ghost!
      Harriet: I just came by to see if there was any more ghostly activity last night. But this time, I'm prepared. No ghost will bother me as long as I wear this.
      Jamie: What is that?
      Harriet: It keeps the evil spirits away. It's a string of anchovies.
      Jamie: Anchovies? Harriet, it's supposed to be garlic that does that.
      Harriet: Garlic? Darn it! I spent a whole hour pickin' these off the pizza.
      Jamie: Well, it's not a total loss. It'll keep me away.

    • Joan: (In a frightened tone) Ted.
      Ted: (In a frightened tone) Joan.
      Jamie: (In a frightened tone) Dad, they're here!

    • Harriet: Something strange is happening here.
      Jamie: Something strange is sitting here.

    Notes (4)

    • The production title of this episode is "The Lawsonville Horror".

    • This is the first episode stating that Vicki's powered by a RadioThermonic Generator (RTG), altogether the explanation for its malfunction is rather lame techno-babble.

    • This episode contains more opticals and special effects per scene than any other, and was the first time a videotaped sitcom had ever been so ladened with first-timers, well before Out of This World and ALF.
