Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (8)

    • Goof: In the first scenario when the yuletide star is broken, Vice Principal Hackett says the school's parent company is the Pickford Landfill Corporation. In the last scenario, he says the parent company is the Pickford Rubber Horse Factory. Although this dialogue might have been intentional for sake of humor, it's really unlikely what Hackett said would have changed since it was Phil and Pim going back and forth to make the change to prevent the star from getting broken.

    • Goof: In Curtis' flashback, he has a lot more facial hair than in his first appearance in "Meet the Curtis".

    • Goof: At the beginning of the episode when Keely comes in, the door is left open. After she hangs the ornament on the tree, the door is mysteriously already closed.

    • Goof: When Phil and Pim go back in time to when they were fighting over the star Pim tells the Past Pim that Phil is crushing on "some girl" and the Past Pim is excited and jumping up and down. But when Phil goes back in time to that situation again we hear in a V.O., Past Pim reacting to what Future Pim said and her reaction sounds different, it still is said "I knew it" but she speaks it in a different tone of voice when it should of sounded the same.

    • Goof: When Phil and Pim first came into the cafeteria to get the coin from Keely a student trips and his lunch flies everywhere. Then Phil and Pim fight over the star. But the next few times Phil goes back in time to fix the star, the student trips after Phil and Pim are already fighting over the star.

    • Goof: Phil was supposed to recalibrate the temperal pump valve after each time trip. However, this part was not even on the time machine. The temperal pump valve was the piece that Phil found in the caveman exhibit in Mummy's Boy.

      Question: Could the temporal pump valve simply have been *damaged* by Phil, then dislodged during a subsequent trip to the Stone Age?

    • Goof: In Phil's final attempt to save the star, he starts out by taking the star, then moving forward in time to where it had already been broken. If he took it, how was it broken?

    • Goof: It is stated in Team Diffy that Friar Fred is the founder of Pickford. However, in this episode, Keely tells that Ezekiel Pickford is the founder.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Phil: So I actually saved us?
      Lloyd: I guess so.
      Pim: Woah woah woah So, he's the bad kid for 10 seconds and thats it?
      I will not stand for this injustice!!
      Barbra: Wanna put the star on top the tree?
      Pim: *Sweetly* Kay.

    • Diffys: Oh Robotree, oh Robotree. You're programmed just to thrill us. Oh Robotree, oh Robotree. Please do not try to kill us. We didn't mean to make you frown. Release our kids and put them down. Why didn't we buy that Astrotree. It's programmed not to kill us. Or your money back.

    • Lloyd: Wait...after each of your little joy rides in the time machine, did you remember to recalibrate the temporal pump valve?
      Phil: No. Was I supposed to?
      Lloyd: Yes, but you didn't. Did you? No, and that's why the engine burned out, and you know what that means.
      Pim: It's Phil's fault we're stuck here! Phil, that guy. Hahahahahaha.

    • Lloyd: Look at all the aluminum foil!
      Barbra: Lloyd, put it back.

    • Keely: I guess I have a guardian angel up there watching over me.
      Pim: Hey time boy, that's you.

    • Keely: Phil Diffy you are the most wonderful boy I have ever known.
