* OhCrap: Hilariously, both present-day Donald and Scrooge have this reaction to the boys asking Scrooge "what exactly happened" the month he and Goldie spent together at the cabin. Even as he couldn't know, Donald likely figured that a young Scrooge spending a month alone with a woman in said cabin probably wasn't all innocent...

* LamarckWasRight: We see Gladstone's parents and it looks like he inherited his good luck from his mother. His attitude also comes from his father. Likewise, Hortense meets the equally irascible Quackmore, and their future romance will result in [[HairTriggerTemper Donald Duck]].

* RuleOfCool: When you get down to it, what does it matter what age Scrooge is at for him to beat up the Beagle Boy when they're in a ''dream'' - physical rules shouldn't apply. But of course seeing him beat up the Beagle Boy while he was at his toughest in reality is what makes the moment so awesome.


Added DiffLines:

* YourMindMakesItReal: According to Gyro, you appear in the dream as "your mental image of yourself." So when Scrooge is dreaming about something that happened when he was 10-years-old, he has the strength and skills of a 10-year-old boy (despite retaining all his memories). Hence why, to enable Scrooge to beat the Beagle Boys, the kids had to get him to dream about a time when he was the unbeatable King of the Klondike -- physical rules shouldn't apply, but Scrooge can't be at his toughest unless he dreams of himself while he was at his toughest in reality.

Added DiffLines:

** This might in fact be partially justified by the fact that he was wearing metal armour at the time which could function as a kind of Faraday cage. The problem is of course that he wasn't wearing the lower half of the suit, so the electricity would still have to pass through his legs. But the lightning could arguably have missed his vital organs thanks to the metal, giving him a better chance of survival. Good enough for comic book logic at least.
