Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • After they rescue the boy at the gravel pit Brackett tells them to keep the boy on oxygen and transport.  But they make no effort to put the oxygen mask back on the boy's face.  In fact it looks like Marco is putting the mask away.

    • The scene with the father and son in the ER where the dad is shocked his son had a concussion since they were only doing about 20 and only going around the block so they didn't bother with seat belts was an excellent, non-preachy way to point out the importance of wearing seat belts at all times.

    • Chet says "Terror at the Library" is one of his favorite flicks.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Dr. Brackett: He's not a kid, he's a responsible adult, or at least he's supposed to be.

    • Johnny: (After finding out they put a make-shift crib above his bed) Oh no, I'm not sleeping in that.
      Roy: Think of it like a hammock. There you are in a hammock laying on your back under a nice big tree on a lazy summer afternoon. You're just there rocking back and forth, back and forth. What have you got to lose?
      Johnny:(Looking at Roy in disgust) I'd rather be tired.
