      • Oraculo: Now, Mr. Nesmith, I want you to clear your mind of all thought.
        Mike makes some sound effects through his bubble pipe.
        Oraculo: How do you feel?
        Mike: Oh, um, thoughtless.
        Oraculo: nods Look deeply, deeply into my eyes. What do you see?
        Mike: boredly Cowardice, dishonesty, and a lack of scruples.
        Oraculo: Maybe there's something in what they say!

    • NOTES (4)

      • Interesting that both Burgess Meredith and Frank Zappa are appearing in this episode. Meredith playing The Penguin and Zappa wrote a song, "Boy Wonder, I Love You!" about Robin, performed by Burt Ward.

      • This episode was nearly scrapped but it was salvaged to showcase "Valleri" and the mock interview with Frank Zappa and to complete the 2nd season.

      • Tag: Micky, with Moog synthesizer, sings "Daily Nightly" while Mike, Peter and Davy look on. In an opening vignette, a mock interview wherein Mike Nesmith and the late Frank Zappa reverse roles—and Mike (as Frank Zappa) self parodies The Monkees by condemning their "banal and insipid" music—concludes with Mike conducting Zappa in wrecking a car to the tune of "Mother People."

      • Features the songs: "Valleri" and "Daily Nightly."
