    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Principal Wartz called Phil 'young man' while Phil should be older than him.

      • Adults whom return to school do not go to regular elementary schools, they go to specialized adult schools.

      • Aren't the students suppose to respect Grandpa Phil since he is 81 years old and an elder? And if Grandpa Phil is so old and much mature than the other kids, then how come he gets scared of the mean-like kids when he enters 6th grade for the first time? Grandpa Phil is an adult, the kids can't bully an adult. And Grandpa Phil is also shown going to the theater with Connie and Maria from school as if they were his girlfriends. Grandpa Phil is way too old for Connie and Maria.

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Rhonda: (about her partner for the egg assignment) I got Harold!
        Harold: Come on Rhonda, you know you like me.
        Rhonda: Where in the world would you get a ridiculous idea like that?
        Harold: Remember that time at the cheese festival when you...
        (Rhonda shuts Harold's mouth and laughs embarrassingly)
        Rhonda: I told you to never mention that night ever again!

      • Arnold: (about Grandpa going back to school) Your not too old Grandpa, and you still got plenty of brain cells.
        Grandpa: No, not since Woodstock.

      • Principal Wartz: (to a tough Grandpa Phil) Report to detention after the final bell.
        Phil: Report THIS, Wartz! (pulls the fire alarm and walks off)
        Principal Wartz: (resets the alarm) That's it! I'm calling his parents!

      • (after when Harold showed Rhonda their egg that has tape all over it)
        Rhonda: What did you do, Harold!?
        Harold: Nothing.
        Rhonda: Harold, this is not our egg. This- I don't even know what this is. What did you do with Courtney?
        Harold: Uh, I, Uh... Oh! I was hungry!
        Rhonda: You...ate...our...baby?
        (Harold belches)

      • Grandpa Phil: I'm gonna run for President. Pookie, you can be my campaign manager. What's our slogan?
        Pookie: Melts in your mouth, not in your hand.
        Grandpa Phil: Pookie, you're fired. Arnold! You can be my campaign manager.
        Arnold: (Sighs) Grandpa...

      • Grandpa Phil: I want that diploma!
        Arnold: Then let's go get it.
        Grandpa Phil: Right after my nap!

    • NOTES (4)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Pookie: Melts in your mouth, not in your hand.

        This is the slogan for M&M's candies.

      • Grandpa Phil: (to Wartz right before he gets his diploma) The sum of the square root of any two sides of an isosceles triangle is equal to the square root of the remaining side... In your face, Wartz!

        The equation grandpa recites is the same equation recited by the Scarecrow near the end of The Wizard of Oz (1939) when he receives his "brain" from the Wizard.
