  • NOTES (2)

    • "Ordinary" bicycle? Most people say it's a "penny-farthing." This shows the producers 3-2-1 Contact did not want to dabble with a defunct English monetary unit.

    • This installment of "The Bloodhound Gang" was edited for time. The complete version was preserved in Shapes: Clues.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Vikki: Oh, you started the race, all right. You even ran a couple of miles, but then you ducked out and took a shortcut…jumped back in the race just in time to finish.
      The Bloodhound Gang's "Case of X Marks the Spot" was inspired by the scandalous Rosie Ruiz, who had run only two marathons in her life and cheated both times. In the 1980 New York City Marathon, she tampered her time by not running the full 26 miles, but riding a subway part of the time. Her crowning indignity came with the Boston Marathon that same year, when Ruiz literally emerged from the crowd and paced a short distance to "lead" all women runners. Ruiz was disqualified three weeks later and the Women's title went to veteran marathoner Jacqueline Gareau of Montréal.
