    • Plucky: (singing) I build my house of grass, I build my house of reeds, if there's a quake it'll bend, not break, it will fulfill my needs.
      Hamton: I build my house of nails, I build my house of wood, if there's a quake it'll bend not break, it'll stand up like it should.
      Buster: It doesn't seem safe at first, my living like a mole, till I reveal that tempered steel is my ace in the hole. (thumps a metal lid on his rabbit hole)

    • Plucky: Shirley the Loon predicts a quake to strike by the light of the moon.
      Hamton: She saw it all in her crystal ball.
      Both: That's why she's called a Loon!

    • (Buster's driving the machine out of dinosaur bones)
      Babs: How's this thing running?

  • Allusions

    • The gremlins who live in the center of the earth in this episode strongly resemble the gremlin from Bugs Bunny's 1943 cartoon, Falling Hare, who sabotaged airplanes.

    • Just right after Plucky turns off the TV, he, Hamton, Babs and Buster start singing a song very simular to "Who's afraid of the Big Bad Wolf" from "The Three Little Pigs"

    • Journey to the Center of Acme Acres is a parody of Jules Verne's novel Journey to the Center of the Earth.
