    • TRIVIA (4)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Guru: In my country we have a seldom-used saying; 'A woman who laughs at her own jokes has no branches on her shoe tree.'
        Florence Henderson: That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard.
        Guru: now you know why it's seldom-used.

      • Male Rat: (to a female rat) I think we oughta move out of the ghetto and find ourselves a nice little dump in the suburbs.
        Female Rat: Oh, honey, I love you like the plague!

      • House #2: My brother has ghosts in his attic.
        House #1: Sounds scary.
        House #2: Yeah. He's on the "10 Most Haunted" list.

    • NOTES (4)

    • ALLUSIONS (4)

      • The "wire for" gag is going to be used again in season 1 episode featuring Candice Bergen.

      • Koozebane is derived from Coos Bay, Oregon. Jim Henson always thought that was a strange name for a town. Whenever a name for an alien planet was needed Koozebane was used. The mating ritual sketch was also feature on "The Valentine Special" another pilot.

      • "Happy Together" was sung in 1967 by The Turtles.

      • Rolf's solo spot, "Cottelston Pie," is the UK only spot for this episode. It is written by A.A. Milne, the creator of Winnie the Pooh. It was a favorite of Jim Henson's.
