    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • In "Arthur Goes Crosswire," kids are already outside before the school bell rings. Most noticeably Muffy, who sitting in her limo.

        She was also on the phone with her father, meaning that she must have been out there a while if she had time to call her father and tell him about Mr. Ratburn's project.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • (The Brain has a fantasy where he is an adult scientist about to unleash his latest creation in an auditorium...)
        The Brain: Even back in elementary school when I was building my first model, I knew that with a little DNA and a lot of hard work, I would one day succeed. And now, ladies and gentlemen... it lives!
        (A living, growling Tyrannosaurus Rex rises from a platform. The audience gasps and begins to panic...)
        The Brain: Please! Ladies and gentlemen, I warn you, be calm! (the dinosaur, now in full view, grabs The Brain's microphone...)
        T-Rex: (in a Groucho Marx-esque voice) Hello hello hello, welcome to the show. So I tell ya, the strangest thing happened to me. Last night I discovered an elephant in my pajamas... How the elephant got in my pajamas, I'll never know.
        (The audience screams and clears the auditorium in a panic! Back to reality...)
        The Brain: Hmm... I have to work on his material.

      • Arthur: Then Wilbur told me, "Artie, those are swell glasses."

    • NOTES (1)

      • When Sue Ellen is trying to make a skull for the T-Rex model, she makes a Barney the Dinosaur head by mistake and then crushes it.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The title "Arthur Goes Crosswire" is a play on the saying 'going haywire,' which means someone is going crazy or things are out of control.
