    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Look Closely: Of the Artie merchandise is a hat that says "PIPE!," an Artie action land canoe, a shirt that says "Artie Lives!" with "Don't Give Up Hope" on the other side, and two different colored flags.

      • This is the first time someone mentions that Artie enjoys the smell of tire aire and armpit noises, which reminds him of his mother.

    • QUOTES (19)

      • Siding Salesman: How strong is our new Krebstar super siding? Its twin-polymer coating stands up to hail, heat, and even a full-grown man running into it repeatedly at full speed!
        Artie: Strong... as Kansas!

      • McFlemp: Oh, no pressure Artie. If you act now, I'll throw in a free pair of slacks.
        Artie: Whoa! Whoa!! Of the permanent press variety?
        McFlemp: As permanent as the stars.

      • Papercut: Very clever, but you know I'll be back. And next time, I'll be laminated!

      • Dad: You know, son, I'm gonna miss that mutant.

      • Big Pete voice-over: What is it that makes a superhero? Is it muscles of steel? The ability to see brick walls? To turn yourself into a human butane torch? ...or is it smaller? Like with Artie-- a way of looking at the world and making everything in it seem a little bit stranger and a little bit better.

      • Artie: (smells the tire air) Pewsis!

        (Dad continues releasing tire air)

        Big Pete voice-over: Dad did the best he could, but the smell of tire air couldn't hide the stench of defeat.

        Dad: I'm sorry, son.

        Artie: Hah, that's repulsive.

        Dad: Artie? Artie!

        Artie: ...yet strangely compelling.

        Dad: Artie, it's me, Don. Don't you remember?

        Artie: Hey, buddy, buddy, there's no returns on siding, unless it's already on the house.

      • Paper Cut: Well, well, well. Like pages on a pad, we always wind up together.

      • Artie: (cooking steak) Ah, pink on the insode, crisp-a-rooney on the outside. Just the way we like 'em... in America.

      • McFlemp: Ah, Wellsville. We are finally free. No pressure, son. I think he knows what to do.

        Big Pete voice-order: McFlemp was in charge, now. And he wouldn't stop until the memory of Artie went up in flames.

        (McFlemp's son tosses his Artie action canoe into the bonfire)

      • Artie: Morning, Ma'am. I'm here to talk to you about the miracle of aluminum siding.

      • Paper Cut: Ashes to ashes, pulp to pulp.

      • Dad: Well, what do you know? Hey kids, you're old pal Artie's on TV.

        Big Pete voice-over: The adultification of Artie had begun, and it wasn't pretty.

        TV Announcer: How strong is our new Krebstar Super Siding? Its twin polymer coating stands up to hail, heat, and even a full-grown man running into it repeately at full speed.

        (Artie runs into the siding)

        Artie: Strong... as Kansas.

        TV Announcer: There you have it.

        Little Pete: Artie, what are you doing?!

      • Artie: Call me a truck and slap me 'till Wednesday!

        McFlemp: You're a truck, Artie. You're a truck.

      • McFlemp: Hello Artie!

        (Artie wakes up, still on the swing)

        Artie: Oh, hello siding man, poor guy.

        McFlemp: How's every little thing?

        Artie: Pipe.

      • Mr. McFlemp: What is this, son?

        Mr. McFlemp's son: It's an Artie action land canoe.

        (McFlemp takes the land canoe and smashes it into the wall)

      • Little Pete: Attention! Attention! He was last seen wearing flammable pajamas and an ankle bracelet with the name "Hacksaw" on it.

      • (after Pete's friends spray Paper Cut's weapon)

        Paper Cut: Very clever, but you know I'll be back. And next time, I'll be laminated!

        Nona: Yeah, well Artie will be back, too, you toner breath.

      • Paper Cut: Don't try crying for your superhero, fungus lick. He's as gone as yesterday.

        Little Pete: Chew foil, Paper Cut!

      • Big Pete voice-over: The news wasn't sent across the wire. No world leader had to use the hot line. But the fact is, Wellsville was on the verge of a crisis that threatened to wipe out the legend of a superhero.

    • NOTES (1)

      • Technically, this is not Toby Huss's swan song on "P&P"; he appears as the home economics teacher in "X=Why?," an episode that aired after this episode, but was listed before this episode in its DVD release, most likely to make Artie's retirement the same as Huss's retirement from the series, as well.
