    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • If you look closely in the scene where Macie throws the flipper, in the crowd of girls who catch it, you can see some familiar faces: Hope, Darren, and Jean Pierre.

      • Known lyrics to the Little Seal Girl are...

        Most folks think that I'm not real
        'Cause I'm half girl and I'm half seal
        I'm a little seal girl living in the real world
        And it's so hard to get by
        'Cause seals can't even cry
        But in this enless, boundless sea
        Is there no one who looks like me?
        I know I must stay chipper
        One day I'll find a friend to hold my flipper
        'Cause I'm a little seal girl living in the real world
        And it's so hard to get by
        'Cause seals can't even cry.

      • During Macie's musical number, she throws off one of her flippers, but she's wearing them both when she picks up her trophy.

        And speaking of Macie's number: Just where *does* the music at the end come from?

    • QUOTES (5)

      • In the middle of Macy's performance...
        Courtney: Miranda, is it me, or is there something terribly endearing about her?

      • Ginger: Hi Courtney, hi Miranda. Break a leg!
        Miranda: Oh, I'm sure you hope so.
        Courtney: So why aren't you doing the talent show, Ginger? I thought it was a "B-L-T."
        Ginger: Oh, well, it's a long story. The whole thing is, actually, pretty silly.

      • Dodie: When Courtney sees just how great our act is, she'll understand this BFT is a really special one and she'll forget all about being mad at you.
        Ginger: You really think so?
        Macie: Nope, but denial can be a great healer.

      • Dodie and Ginger: (waving their hands with fins on them) Cha!
        Courtney: I'm feeling a very unfamiliar emotion again, Miranda.
        Miranda: I think you may be embarrassed for them. I know I am.

      • Macie: Seal Girl lives on!

    • NOTES (1)

      • In this episode, there is a scene that made fun of the infamous "dead" rule at the time. When Carl talked about Mrs. Gordon's "DEAD hand", he didn't get any dessert.
