      In this episode, when Ezra is telling Bobby that chemicals cost money, he says, "Like it says in the Bible, "A Penny Saved, Is A Penny Earned". Bobby then corrects him and says, "Didn't Ben Franklin say that". Of course, Bobby was correct, Ezra was wrong, it is not from the Bible, this refers to the famous quote by Ben Franklin meaning that any bit of money you don't have to spend is the same as making it.
