    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (5)

      • In "The Winner" from the previous seaon, Carol said Bobby was 4'3". in this season, Bobby was 4'8". Therefore, he grew 5 inches in one year.

      • Sam said if Bobby grew 6 inches a year until he was 21, he'd end up 10"2'. If Bobby was 10 at the time, he was 4"8'. That is normal size for a boy that age.

      • The boy Sam hired before Greg wanted 3 filet mignons as fringe benefits in addition to his $1.50 wages. Assuming the far outdated value of $5 per filet, the boy was asking for 10 hours wages as fringe benefits.

      • Bobby hangs from a crossbar in hopes that gravity would force him to grow. Even if that plan had merit, only his arms would have lengthened. His head to foot height would have remained static.

      • When Greg and Mr. Brady are waxing Greg's surfboard, Bobby comes and tells them one of his brainpower facts. He says that the Ob is the fourth longest river in the world. I guess Bobby didn't study hard enough because the Ob is actually the sixth longest in the world, not the fourth. The fourth longest river in the world is the Mississippi-Missouri.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • (Greg throws Bobby a coin from the freezer)
        Bobby: That's an awful cold dime.
        Greg: If you think the dime's cold, how do you think I feel?
