FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • When Arnold and his friends use the wooden pig to get in the fort, he said it worked for the Trojans. But according to legend, the Greeks were the ones who used it on the Trojans.

    • In "The Pig War," Arnold, Grandpa, and their friends use a wooden pig to capture the enemy fort and rescue Abner. According to legend, the Greeks used a similar trick in the Trojan War to defeat the Trojans.

    • One of the signs in Mrs. Vitello's shop read "With ferns like these, who needs anemones"?

    • Phoebe was not credited, despite having one whole episode to herself.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • (Arnold and his friends built a wooden pig and are hiding in it while
      Grandpa pulls it to the 'British' fort)

      Helga: Are you sure this is gonna work?
      Arnold: Look. It worked on the Trojans because their enemies knew they were tired of all the fighting.
      Grandpa: It worked on the Trojans because the Greeks knew when to eep quiet.

    • (after Grandpa wheels up a giant wooden pig as a surrender gift)
      Rex Smythe-Higgins: Savor this moment, grandson, when your enemy surrenders. Open the gate!
      Gate Opener: Sir, there is a certain historical event I think we should consider.
      Rex Smythe-Higgins: Your job is not to consider! Your job is to blow the hunting horn! Now open the gate!
      (the gate is opened and Arnold and his friends run out of the pig as soon as it is inside)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Biosquare: Name
      "Biosquare" is a variation of "Biosphere," an experiment where a number of people planned to live about a year in an entirely self-contained collection of buildings - even the air and water were recycled from the inside.

      P.S. "BioDome" was also a Paulie Shore movie.
