    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Arnold turns on the Douglases' TV set and watched the same western that's always showing. He also adjusts the volume.

      • For refreshments, Lisa has made Hotscakes a la Mode. She takes a hot hotscake and puts a cold one on top.

      • Amending the High Handed Code of 1912, the Stupid and Ridiculous Law of 1966 reads: "Anyone monkeying with the aforesaid section, which deals with one fellow drilling and the other fellow being out of luck, will be subject to a $500.00 fine and two years imprisonment, or both."

      • The High Handed Code of 1912 reads: "If the party of the first part digs a well cutting off the water of the party of the second part, the water becomes the property of the party of the first part and the party of the second part is hereby deemed not to have a leg to stand on".

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Lisa: (seeing Willie with his divining rod) What's that sthick for?
        : He uses that to look for the water.

        Lisa: What's a dowser?
        : (pauses) A sthick-looker.

      • Kimball: Gentlemen, as you all know, a reservoir is composed of water. Except the part that holds the water. That's made of concrete.

      • Oliver: (discussing the amended High Handed Law of 1912) That's a stupid and ridiculous law!
        : That's what it's going to be known as. The Stupid and Ridiculous Law of 1966!
