  • Trivia

    • Raven also posed as a psychic in episode "Unhappy Medium".

    • When Victor and Tanya try to break into Cory's safe, Tanya suggests that Victor tries Cory's birthdate as the code. The number that Victor puts in, however is 12458, which would have mean that Cory was born on the 24th of January in 1958.

    • In the vision where Raven sees Kwizz opening his scholarship letter, Kwizz holds the phone up to his ear, but when the event actually happens, Kwizz is seen with the phone held to his ear using his shoulder.

  • Quotes

    • Chelsea: Yeah, and it kinda seems wrong to use your gift to make money.
      Eddie: C'mon, that's what gifts are for! You don't see Shaq shootin' hoops in his driveway! Or Michael Jackson doing the moonwalk around his pool! Or J-lo off hidin' it in baggy pants! (wiggles his butt, Raven and Chelsea glare him)
      Eddie: Well, I'm just sayin', if you got it, you should use it.

    • Chelsea: Don't you think it's weird using your powers like that?
      Raven: Hey, I'm just doing what you said. Making the world a better place. One guy at a time, child.

    • Raven: Slow down child! Take da' island breath!

    • Madame Cassandra: Look, either you give me a raise you sleeze-bag or I'm leavin'! And this show would be nothing...without Madame Cassandra.

    • Madame Cassandra: If Madame Cassandra can't see it, it's not happ'nin! Call me now!

    • Raven: All I need is the green to make the scene!
      Victor: Well I dig what you're sayin', but I'm not payin'!

    • Raven: It's all right here in me crystal ball. Ooh, and so is the Lincoln Memorial!

    • Raven: Oh, let's see child, what's your sign?
      Quiz: Aries.
      Raven: Ah, dee feesh!
      Quiz: No, the ram.
      Raven: I knew dat, child, I was just orderin' me lunch. I'll take de feesh!

    • Cory: You can always come to me for money.
      Raven: But you always turn me down.
      Cory: And it never gets old!

    • Chelsea: Now you can use your powers to make the world a better place (Chelsea hugs a reluctent Raven)...You're kinda brining down the hug here, Rae!

    • Cory: Let's see...what should I start with?
      Raven: Ah! You should start with a bowl of cereal!

    • Raven: Yes, you will have someone very young (pauses to listen to caller) You're 94? Well, everyone is younger than you, so I'm right!

    • Chelsea: Wait, I see a name coming. It starts with an A...Or maybe it was a B?...C?...D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K...J, J, J!

  • Notes

    • When Victor and Tanya get caught in Cory's net, he finds them as he munches on pizza which is what they were trying to get some of his money to pay for.
      When Raven is caught, Cory is drinking from a waterbottle, the exact thing Raven wanted the money for.

    • Raven's accent and wardrobe are just like Ms. Cleo, the fake psychic with the infamous commericals.

  • Allusions

    • Character References:
      Eddie uses Shaquille O'Neal playing basketball, Michael Jackson and his moonwalk and Jennifer Lopez and her bottom as examples of people who use their talents/assets for their careers.

    • Raven: "I'm Raven, call me now."
      The title of this episode is in reference to Miss Cleo, the notoriously known fake psychic who was eventually sued after many people found out that she was from Los Angelos, despite the fact that she told people that she was from Jamaica. Disney most likely did not use this as the real title for legal reasons.
