Written by Jonathan Greenberg

(only Dan Povenmire received a "Directed By" credit)
Storyboard Artist: Jay Lender

Arnold - Phillip Van Dyke
Gerald, Peapod Kid - Jamil W. Smith
Helga, (uncredited) girl on sidewalk - Francesca Marie Smith
Harold - Justin Shenkarow
Phoebe, strawberry ice cream kid - Anndi L. McAfee
Ernie - Dom Irrera
Mr. Simmons, Police radio voice - Dan Butler
Jolly Olly man, fireman - Dan Castellaneta
Policeman, Jolly Olly man's father - Gregg Berger
Italian Ice kid, woman at fire - Moira Quirk

  • If Moira Quirk sounded familiar, you may have recognized her as one of the announcers on Guts, or as one of the Crust cousins on My Life as a Teenage Robot
  • Somehow, I don't see any real schools letting nine-year-olds go to fires or bank robberies
  • The career adults include Mr. Green, Mrs. Vitello, Harvey, and Sheena's Uncle Earl (who runs a ferry service to Elk Island in "Wheezin' Ed")
  • ...and there's a doctor besides Dr. Steiglitz in the city
  • There are more than 16 slips in the hat, but only 16 students in class, and only 12 hands went in to pull out slips
  • Maybe she's farsighted: Rhonda sits in the back of the class and isn't wearing her glasses
  • Add "Willie" (the Jolly Olly man) to the list of names mentioned

Hey Harold!
Harold makes a new friend at Rhonda's latest party - Big Patty

  • When Arnold opens the invitation, the envelope turns into the letter - but the folds that are needed to make an envelope shape disappear
  • Arnold says the party is on Saturday and "Miss Rhonda Lloyd", but the invitation does not mention a day and says "Ms."
  • Rhonda invites a number of sixth graders: Ruth, Patty, Maria, and Connie (the latter two from "6th Grade Girls") are there
  • Speaking of "6th Grade Girls", Arnold's been to a dance with girls before
  • Sheena does have a dress after all (why didn't she wear it in "Gerald's Tonsils"?); it gets longer when she sits down
  • Speaking of wearing, Stinky's wearing what appear to be cowboy boots at Rhonda's party
  • Phoebe & Gerald Alert: they spend pretty much the entire party dancing with each other
  • "I don't remember Gerald or Phoebe saying anything, so why are they credited?"  Just before Patty arrives at the party, you can (barely) hear Gerald making a comment to Phoebe, and Phoebe laughing at it.
  • French Lesson #2 (see "Arnold's Valentine" for #1): at the end of the party, Rhonda says "C'est La Fin" (although her accent could be better; the last word sounded more like "fun"), which roughly translates to "That's the end"
