Muffy: And the Disgusting Person of the Year award goes to... (reads envelope) "Barfine Fren--"!
(everyone gasps and stares at Francine, and put on doctor masks)
Muffy: Sorry, "Barfine". But we've gotta think of our health!
Francine: I just hope that all the kids at school don't call me Barfine.
Muffy: It's a pity we don't hang out more. I've admired you since we were little kids.
Sue Ellen: I haven't even been here a year, Muffy. You didn't know me when I was a little kid.
Muffy: (to Sue Ellen) Your protest isn't going to work anyway. Do you really think a couple kids are going to change the mind of a multi-million dollar corporation, especially when two of them are Buster and Binky?!
Sue Ellen: Can we just get back to marching, please?!
Sue Ellen: (she flicks one of her hair scrunchies like a rubber band) Hello?! Is anybody listening? This is the Sugar Bowl we're talking about. You know, the place where we hang out every single day.
Buster: I think we've just entered the fourth dimension.
The white surgical masks from "My Dad, the Garbage Man" are used again.
The Sugar Bowl owner, Mr. Menino, may be named after Thomas Menino, mayor of Boston. He must be having a hard time financially if he has to perform janitorial duties.
First apperance of Mr. Carl Manino, sole proprietor of the Sugar Bowl.
Television Ad: The TV ad refers to the restaurant being at the Millcreek Mall
This is the name of the mall in Erie, PA--one of several references to Erie and to the Millcreek Mall. Author Marc Brown grew up in Millcreek, PA, outside Erie. But the show is set in Elwood City, almost 2 hours south, near Pittsburgh
