    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (5)

      • Nitpick: When Superman wonders how his Suit still fits even though he is shrinking, Dr. Klein explains that it is the "aura effect," that anything within a tenth of a millimeter is like a second skin. This doesn't explain why his cape shrinks with him, however.

      • Goof: When Clark is in the shower the first time, the top edge of a pair of shorts or pants is visible.

      • Nitpick: Clark's glasses keep slipping off as he shrinks. But Clark isn't yet small enough for that to happen, since glasses hook behind the ears and would stay on even if he were somewhat smaller. The most they should do is slide down his nose frequently.

      • Nitpick: When Clark starts to shrink, suddenly his shirt cuffs are undone.

      • Goof: When Superman starts to shrink a little, he visits Dr. Klein to see what's wrong, as he tries to approach him closer to make it look like he is shorter than the doctor you can actually see him step down.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Lois: (referring to the scientist who created the shrinking formula) Well, who did he work for?
        Dr Klein: Oh gee, his work was funded by, uh... it was a large cosmetics firm.
        Lois: A cosmetics firm?!
        Dr Klein: Well, you know, they're always trying to shrink something.

      • Fortune Teller: (to Lois) I see a little Kent in your future.

      • Superman: It's okay, Doc, you can tell me. You can be blunt.
        Doctor Klein: Think of yourself as a snowman: as a snowman melts, it has less and less to protect it from the effects of the sun. Before you know it, you're nothing more than a puddle with a corncob pipe.
        (Superman stares without speaking)
        Doc: Too blunt! Too blunt, I knew it.

      • Dr. Klein: (reads) 'Lois, it's too dangerous. Stay put 'til you hear from me.'
        Lois: Aww. He always says that. And I never listen. (she leaves)

      • Annette (to Lois): If you no longer need me, I certainly have no use for you.

    • NOTES (3)

    • ALLUSIONS (5)

      • Annette: Here's a box office hit for ya, 'Honey, I Shrunk the Reporter'.
        Annette is referring to the hit comedy movie Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.

      • Lois: (referring to Perry's Country & Western affectations) He's going through an Urban Cowboy stage.
        The movie Urban Cowboy starred John Travolta as a man in Pasadena Texas who goes to the C&W bar Gilley's to play cowboy by riding a mechanical bull.

      • Annette: Make room for Little Richard!
        Little Richard is a piano playing rock & roll star during the fifties, with hits like "Long, Tall Sally", "Lucille", and "Good Golly, Miss Molly".

      • Annette: Whatever Lolo wants, Lolo gets!
        The song "Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets" is from the musical Damn Yankees.

      • Superman: "I look like Mighty Mouse."

        Mighty Mouse is an animated superhero mouse character created by the Terrytoons studio for 20th Century Fox. He was originally created as a parody of Superman, and he first appeared in 1942 in a theatrical animated short entitled The Mouse of Tomorrow. Mighty Mouse cartoons became a staple of children's TV programming from the 1950s through the 1980s.
