    • Arnold used a lock picking device to get into Scheck's office. Why didn't they use that device instead of going trough the trouble of getting a key?

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Mr Scheck: (singing) You'll take the high road and I'll take the low road.

    • Arnold: That's a pretty amazing thing to do for someone you claim to hate.
      Helga: Yeah, well, I'm a pretty amazing person, football head!

    • (the head of security brings Arnold and Gerald into Scheck's office)
      Head of Security: Sir, we found these boys wandering the halls unescorted.
      Scheck: Unescorted?
      Head of Security: Yes, sir.
      Scheck: Without security clearance?
      Head of Security: That's right, sir.
      Scheck: This is serious, isn't it?
      Head of Security: Yes, sir.
      Scheck: We can't have young boys wandering the halls of Future Tech Industries unescorted without security clearance, now can we?
      Head of Security: No, sir.
      Scheck: No, sir. No, sir. And these small boys just snuck past security and wandered about the building unsecorted. Is that about the size of it?
      Head of Security: Yes, sir.
      Scheck: Well, now, who is responsible for that?
      Head of Security: Sir?
      Scheck: You're the head of security, aren't you?
      Head of Security: Sir, yes sir!
      Scheck: "Sir, sir. Yes, sir. Sir." Is that all you can say?
      Head of Security: No, sir. I mean, yes sir. Sir!
      Scheck: (to Arnold and Gerald) There he goes again. (to Head of Security) I'll tell you what. Why don't you just go now. Go back to your duties as head of security. Who knows how many other boys are out there wandering the halls of Future Tech Industries, unescorted, while you stand there like a big, dumb, stiff repeating, "Sir, yes, sir, sir."
      Head of Security: Yes, sir!

    • Gerald:Why do you always have to look on the bright side?
      Arnold:Somebody has to.

      Arnold:Now you're looking on the bright side?
      Gerald:Somebody has too.

    • Gerald:That's the craziest idea i've ever heard. Let's do it!"

    • Gerald: I'm telling you, Arnold. Your ball's flat.
      Arnold: It's not flat, Gerald. It just needs a little air.
      Gerald: Why do you do that? What do you always have to look on the bright side?
      Arnold: Somebody has to.

    • Helga: Crimeny, Football Head! What else are you supposed to do when someone you love is in trouble!?
      Arnold: Love?
      Helga: That's right, pal! I love you! Who else do you think has been stalking you day and night, building shrines of you in a closet, and filling books of poems about you? I've always loved you! Ever since I first laid eyes on your stupid football head. And from that moment on, I've dreamed of the day I could finally say it. Finally tell you my true feelings of love and then kiss you – oh, come here you big lug.

    • (Gerald begins praying)
      Arnold: I didn't know you were religious.

    • Helga: I love you Arnold! Ever since I laid eyes on your stupid football head!

    • Arnold: What's wrong with old things? Some old things are great.
      Harold: Yeah, like Mrs. Vitello.
      Mrs. Vitello: (she hits him in the head with a bouquet of flowers) Whippersnapper!

  • NOTES (14)


    • The scene where Grandma discovers a giant hole in the wall under a poster was a real big parody of the famous hole scene from The Shawshank Redemption.

    • The FTI is an allusion of FBI.

    • Helga/Deepvoice: Just call me..Deepvoice
      Deepthroat was a white house informant in the Watergate scandal. It was also the alias Gray Fox used in Metal Gear Solid as Snake's anonymous informant, claiming to be the same Deepthroat from the Watergate scandal.

    • Helga/Deepvoice: ''Just call me..Deepvoice''
      A line exactly like this was used in the Playstation 2 game: Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty. When Raiden gets a codec, the transmission goes: ''Just Call me Deepthroat''.

    • N/A: N/A
      In the part when Big Bob is trying to beat up the sleazy guy (forgot his name) Big Bob gets covered with pickle juice. The juice turns his skin green like the Hulk's skin. Big Bob also tears off his shirt and is only wearing torn brown pants which makes him look more like the Hulk.

    • N/A: N/A
      The tomato incident is obvisiouly a copy off of the Boston tea party. The boston tea party was an 18th century event when colonists got fed up with British Taes and dumped loads of British Tea Into the Boston Harbor. This triggered the intorable acts.

    • Scheck: And I would have gotten away with it if it weren't for that meddeling...
      What the villins usualy say in the Scooby Doo series.
