    • This time, Mrs. McRockers lives next door so presumably Loudrock has moved.

    • While Fred is preparing to pour glue in the rival bidder's caramel corn, the spots on the back of his suit disappear for one shot.

  • Quotes

    • Fred: That was delicious, Wilma.
      Wilma: Thank you, Fred. Fred, do you suppose I could use the car today for running errands?
      Fred: Oh, sure, Wilma. In that case, I'd better hurry so I can catch a ride with Barney.
      (Fred sips his coffee and starts gagging and choking)
      Wilma: Fred, are you trying to tell me something?
      Fred: Yes! That coffee is HOT!

    • (Big Sparkle is trying to shoot a can off Shorty's head)
      Big Sparkle: Hold still, Shorty.
      Shorty: Eh, b-b-but s-suppose you miss.
      Big Sparkle: Shut up. I never miss.
      (Fires gun, Shorty falls)
      Lenko: You missed.
      Big Sparkle: So I did. Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.

    • Fred: Just in case Dino goofs, I got another idea.
      Barney: What's that, Fred?
      Fred: I, uh, got it from an old gangster movie on TV. We go over there by the door. You stand on that side, and I'll stand on this side.
      Barney: What do we do now?
      Fred: The next guy who comes through that door, we jump him and take his gun.
      Barney: Oh, I don't know about that, Fred.
      Fred: Listen, it worked on TV.
      Barney: If you say so, Fred.
      Fred: Shh. Someone's coming. You ready?
      (Herman walks in, notices Fred and Barney, steps back out causing Fred and Barney to crash into each other)
      Herman: I watch TV, too, fellas.
