    • Arthur: Buster, listen, I've been thinking, since Emmanuel can write his letters in Spanish, I'm going to get Adil to help me write one in Turkish.
      Buster: Um, I'm not sure, but I don't think Emmanuel speaks Turkish.

      Arthur first began writing to his pen-pal Adil in the eighth season Arthur story "Dear Adil." In that story, Arthur had misconceptions about Turkey and wasn't sure what to write to his pen pal.

    • Fern: I love Orca whales too. I've seen Free Millie five times.
      Francine: You should put that in your letter.

      Free Millie is a riff on the film Free Willy, a 1993 movie about the rescue of a whale.

    • Buster: (in fantasy sequence) Ah, the border. Where everything is different on the other side.
      Border Fairy: Welcome. I am the Border Fairy, here to help you with your crossing.
      Buster: Great! How do I get over there?
      Border Fairy: All you have to do is put one foot in front of the other and repeat after me --- "There's no place like the border. There's no place like the border."

      The Border Fairy channels The Wizard of Oz with a saying close to that of the classic phrase of the character Dorothy --- "There's no place like home."
