  • Girl Trouble: Phil tells Arnold exactly what is going on with Helga and why she treats him that way School Dance: Arnold gets Dino Spimoni who blows it at first but then changes it aroundmoreless

    It's kind of ironic. Phil tells Arnold exactley what's up with Helga. The fact she's evil to him only because she has feelings for him...and Arnold does not believe it...GAH! He's so thick headed.



    The fact the "Pookie" treated Phil the same way Helga treats Arnold may hint they could end up married. Ya never know, it could happen

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • When Dino and Arnold are in his dressing room, there's a box on the floor in some of the shots that has the words "Rat Poison" written on it.

    • In "Girl Trouble," when Helga is sharpening her pencil, she looks back at Arnold. Notice how the desks are arranged in rows, and Helga is sitting at her seat as well! When she goes back, the desks are in groups of four since they're working on group projects.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Arnold: (after Dino's performance of My Last Bow) What are you doing out there?
      Dino: Saying goodbye, Arnold. Sayonara, au revoir, auf wiedersehen baby, the jig's up and I know it. So here's to the old days.
      Arnold: Dino, you're not even trying!
      Dino: Trying? Let me tell you something about trying, kid. I tried for 45 years and for a while it worked pretty good. But then it all fall apart like a pile of wet newspaper. Nobody bought Dino Spumoni records, nobody came to my concerts, nobody wanted to book me. Nobody!
      Arnold: I booked you.
      Dino: Yeah, but that's because yous was desperate.
      Arnold: The point is I asked you to play at our dance because I really like your old music. I thought the other kids would like it too and I thought you wanted to play it.
      Dino: I told you before, kid. Nobody wants to hear the old music. Nobody likes that stuff anymore.
      Arnold: Not even you?
      Dino: What are you talking about? Of course I like the old songs. That's who I am, baby. That's what I'm all about. Those songs were great! If I sang those old songs right now, they'll knock you right on the ear!
      Arnold: Then why don't you do it?

    • (Helga is on the floor wrapped in her telephone cord)
      Helga: (sarcastically) Yeah, yeah! An agreement sounds great. Have my people call your people and we'll draw up the papers! Yeah, in your dreams, football head! Like I'm ever going to agree with you about anything! And don't ever call me at my house ever again!!! EVER!!! (sighs and Big Bob opens her bedroom door and looks down to her confused, Helga looks up at him and laughs sheepishly)
      Big Bob: I'm not even gonna ask... (leaves her room)

    • Helga: Oh, Arnold! So kind, so just, so moral!
      (is twirling around while the telephone cord is wrapping around her)
      Helga: You couldn't help but return to the ways I know and love.
      (she sighs and falls to the floor with a loud thump, Big Bob hears the fall from downstairs)
      Arnold: Helga?? Are you there??

    • Big Bob: Hey, Helga, it's your little friend, Alfred, on the phone!
      Helga: Arnold? Calling me? At my house?
      Big Bob: Yeah, yeah, Arnold.

  • NOTES (2)

    • In 'School Dance' after Dino's depressing song, you see Arnold trying to reason with him in the dressing room. If you look around the room, you'll see a rather large box with the words 'rat poison' on it. Why is this box so big, or more importantly, open?

    • Pookie's birth name is revealed as Gertrude aka Gertie, and now Pookie.
