  • The magazine Harold was reading had a price of $1 USA, $10 Canada
  • Mr. Simmons asked that each student put their name on the test folders, but the folders already had names on them when he handed them out (and Brainy's said "Brainy")
  • When Eugene dropped the tests, just about all of them fell out of their folders, but apparently only Harold and Helga's were switched
  • The test paper Eugene put back in Harold's folder was blank
  • The "concerto" Harold was commenting about was really the overture to the opera Carmen (as seen in "What's Opera, Arnold?")
  • Somebody call Dan Butler's agent: Mr. Simmons was uncredited
