    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Arthur and Francine were spying on D.W. while she is eating a bologna sandwich, Arthur says "Pal is eating the balo- Pal! Put that down!" On the Canadian network CBC, closed-captioning read "How is eating the- Ow! Put that down!"

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Mom: (as D.W. stuffs a bunch of french fries into her mouth) D.W., one at a time.
        : You're always picking on me! You never pick on anyone else. Only me, me, ME!
        : You know that's not true, D.W. Everyone has to eat politely and that includes you.
        : That does NOT include me. You never include me! You always make me stay home whenever there's anything fun! Only Arthur gets to have fun, only Arthur...
        Francine: D.W., can I ask you a question?
        : Maybe.
        : What's the matter with you?
        (D.W. gasps and runs off crying. Everyone else groans.)

      • D.W.: You're only making going to bed because you don't want me around. You don't love me. You wished I wasn't even born.
        Dad: Get some sleep. You'll feel better in the morning.
        D.W.: I won't feel better. (slams her door and then opens it) I won't, I won't, I won't. (slams it again and then opens it again) I won't! ((slams her door one last time)

      • Arthur: Even smart people believe dumb stuff sometimes.
