Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • I Remember Melville displays the Five Stages of Grief (a.k.a. theKübler-Ross model) throughout the episode, with Chuckie...

      1. Denial: Chuckie first keeps denying Melville is dead and desperately tries to awaken him.

      2. Anger: Chuckie is angered when the others try to tell him Melville is dead, and that the "replacement bug" is really a snail.

      3. Bargaining: Chuckie attempts to show that Melville is fine by having him perform in a "circus."

      4. Depression: Chuckie finally realizes Melville is truly dead and cries over it, even when the babies eat chocolate pudding (as he remembered he and Melville liked eating pudding together.)

      5. Acceptance: The ending when Chuckie starts laughing at the funeral, remembering all the good times he had with Melville, shows he has now accepted his pet bug's death.

    • Goof: In the episode "I Remember Melville" Lil's bow is yellow in one scene.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • (Tommy, Phil and Lil notice Melville lying on his back, not moving...)
      Lil: Maybe he's tired.
      Phil: Maybe his batteries ran out.
      Lil: Or maybe he's dead.

    • Angelica: Excuse me a sec, I'm gonna go check on the babies. (Angelica leaves)
      Tommy: Hey Chuckie, where'd Angelica say she was going?
      Chuckie: To check on the babies.
      Tommy: Oh, okay.
      Everyone: We are the babies!

    • (Angelica starts to ravenously eat cookies that fell into a washing bucket)
      Tommy: But Angelica! They're all wet and soapy!
      Angelica: I don't care! (Eats more, then starts to groan) Tommy? Closer... closer... (Screaming) Never! Never! Ever! Let me have cookies again!

    • Lil: "Dead" means that you go to sleep for a long time.
      Phil: Like forever.

    • Chuckie: He was the bestest bug I ever had.
      Phil: He was the only bug you ever had.

    • Angelica: ...I learned all the different varieties: (Pausing between each one to reflect) Chocolate Chip! Oatmeal! Gingerbread! (Flashback ends) Each one delicious; special in its own way. So you see, Tommy, cookies made me who I am.

    • Tommy: I promised Angelica that no matter how much she asked, no matter how much she begged, no matter how much she cried, I wouldn't let her have any cookies! And, guys, I'm gonna keep my promise!
      Chuckie: I love it when he gives these big speeches.
