* GrandFinale: Two, actually - one for the dailies and one for the Sundays (there were still four more Sunday strips to go when the last daily strip was published). In the daily finale, Orson looks in the funny pages, sees that U.S. Acres isn't in it, and disappears. In the Sunday finale, Orson, Booker, and Sheldon watch their own cartoon show.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: When Orson explains to Booker that he's named that because he loves books, his response is "I'm just glad you don't love kumquats". While this was probably just a use of InherentlyFunnyWords, FundamentallyFunnyFruit, or both, he may have been implying his name would be "Kummer".
