      • Roger: From now on, everything is going to be different between you and me. I think we're going to be real good friends. In fact, to show you just how close we are, when we get back home, I'm gonna come over to your house more often for dinner.

    • NOTES (3)

      • The Bluff Scouts and The Beets are mentioned for the first time in this episode. We also see Skeeter's house and his room (before moving to the basement) for the first time in this episode. The Beets are a combination of classic rock The Beatles and punk rock founders The Ramones.

      • Episode b) features The Beets song "Killer Tofu".

      • In "Doug Rocks", when Doug and Skeeter are talking in Skeeter's room, you can see a little bumper-sticker-sized poster on the wall, which says 'VISIT VIRGINIA'. This is, of course, a reference to Doug's creator, Jim Jinkins, who was born in Henrico County, Virginia.
