  • Despite a particular flaw, it's perfect cause it's time travel.

    Dipper wishes he could travel back in time and fix his mistake he made in the past. He then discovers a time machine that can help him. Meanwhile, Mabel finds her first love when she wins a pet pig at the fair. This has got to be one of the most divisive episodes ever on the show. It has some fans like me, but some people didn't seem to like it because of Dipper acted in this episode. Sure he may been selfish about caring more on Wendy than the pig (Waddles) Mabel wanted, but it's only a minor flaw and that couldn't impact my perfect score. To be honest, I'm a sucker for time travel episodes so that's why I really enjoyed this episode. It did had a heartbreaking moment when Mabel was sad that she didn't got the pig and Dipper, you know what he did. If you get past the problem with this episode, you'll probably enjoy it. I cracked up at scenes like The dunk tank scene, Mabel's low attention when she said will supporting dipper only to say "OH MY GOSH, A PIG!", "let's get two dodos and force them to make out!," some of Blendin Blandin's parts, Dipper repeatedly messing up the time, Dipper and Mabel in a portable toilet, and the credits scene. Overall, while it's has a problem, it's not easy to call it an okay episode because of that. Since I'm into time travel, I'll be generous and give it a perfect score.

      At the end of the episode, Dipper tells Waddles the pig "that'll do pig; that'll do". This is the line that Farmer Hogget says to Babe the pig in the movie Babe.

    • The uniforms worn by the Time Paradox Avoidance Enforcement Squadron resemble the suit worn by Dolph Lundgren's character in Universal Soldier. Their names are Lolph and Dundgreen, which is Lundgren's first and last names with the first letters swapped.
