  • Both good episodes. One of Us: The people of Retroville are behaving in a strange manner due to a TV show. Vanishing Act: In an attempt to wow Betty Quinlan, Jimmy puts on a magic act that goes horribly wrong.

    • Cindy: (after whacking Jimmy on with her head) Oh, sorry. I have 2 left feet. Oh, wait. NO I DON'T!

    • Jimmy: Come on! Magic is so lame. Betty: I think magic is awesome! Jimmy: Me, too! In fact, I've been doing it for years!

    • Grandma Taters: I guess I'll be going now. Jimmy: But I'm confused. Isn't this where you live? Grandma Taters: No! This is just a one-week gate. (Grandma Taters calls a flying saucer by the press of a button. The flying saucer arrives and Grandma Taters' twin sisters come out) Grandma Taters: I'm sorry, girls. I failed. Grandma Taters' Twin Sister 1: That's all right, Ally. Grandma Taters' Twin Sister 2: Come in and have some muffins-- Grandma Taters' Twin Sister 3: --and brain juice.

    • Sheen: (as a happy zombie) Hi, Jimmy! I saw the most glorious TV show last night! Jimmy: Let me guess... Is there a 'UltraLord' word anywhere on the title? Sheen: No. It's called the Happy Show Show. You gotta watch it! It will make me... veeery happy!

    • Sheen: (to Betty) Wow, this is the first time I've ever really gotten into art. You get it? Into art? You didn't get it? 'Cause we-we're in the art- Betty: I get it.

    Notes (2)

    • Jimmy has the same black uniform that he wore on Lights! Camera! Danger!

    • Cindy shows a lot of jealousy towards Betty in both episodes.

    Trivia (8)

    • The weapon Grandma Taters is carring is called a nunchak.

    • After Carl says that Sheen should look at his contract, do you notice Sheen's hair is different?

    • In One of Us, there is a brief shot toward the end where Cindy is holding Jimmy's cue cards for the Happy Show Show. The lyrics to the song that he sings are on the cards, but in the first line, "Be angry if you're feeling mad," "you're" is spelled "your."

    • Although certain types of karate have different belt colors, Cindy, with her blue belt and expert moves, is clearly very advanced.

    • We find out that Jimmy and Carl have known Sheen for ten years. Even thought that couldn't make sense, because Jimmy moved to Retroville when he was in third grade.

    • Sheen: (repeating) And the next day... This is a reference of the SpongeBob SquarePants episode, "The Algae's Always Greener" when Mr. Krabs walked out of the Krusty Krab repeating, "And the next day..."

    • One of Us: Music The theme music for this episode is similar to the style of music for the long-running PBS show, Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.

    • Libby: (dances) In "Vanishing Act", Libby's dance was the same one that she did with Cindy in "Battle of the Bands."

    • Portal Room: Apperence The room with the red curtains (towards the end of the episode) and black and white striped floor is nearly identical to red-curtained room in the "Black Lodge" from Twin Peaks.
