* Ford's existence was heavily foreshadowed here, with an apparently ownerless pair of glasses and what appears to be a science experiment, at least hinting that someone lived in the shack before Stan. This episode is also the first time we really see Dipper and Mabel putting heads and fighting. Not only was Ford foreshadowed, but so was the rift he would cause between Dipper and Mabel.

Also the way Stan look at the glasses, as if he is sadly remembering something. This episode is also the first time we really see Dipper and Mabel putting heads and fighting. Not only was Ford foreshadowed, but so was the rift he would cause between Dipper and Mabel.

* [[spoiler: Stan's father made him take boxing. Guess we know how he overpowered the pterodactyl now.]] Also explains why the wax dummies didn't dare to attack Stan without the element of surprise.

* [[OncePerEpisode Each episode's credits]] feature a cryptogram referencing the events of the episode. The first says "Welcome To Gravity Falls." There's also one in the theme song "[[spoiler:STAN IS NOT WHAT HE SEEMS]]" and in an online game "[[spoiler:EVER SEE STANS TATTOO?]]"

* Why does Stan feel so guilty after Mabel said 'I'm never speaking to you again!' after not caring about Waddles? Because it's [[spoiler: not the first time he heard that]].

* What do you do when you have identical twins? Give them cute matching twin names. What do you do when you favor one twin over the other? Make sure that their nicknames (Stan and Ford) combine to make the name of the favored twin (Stanford). Even his ''name'' was a reminder that Ford was the more important twin in his parents' eyes. (This also implies that the favoritism was evident from ''birth.'')

* Why was Stan so convinced Gideon wasn't really psychic, even though it turned out in "Scaryoke" that he knew about all the weirdness? [[spoiler:Because Gideon made a point of calling him "Stanford" - a name that a mind reader would know wasn't correct.]]

* Check the scene where Stan's father makes him take boxing. Although his face is obscured by the book he's reading, the kid in the top right corner looks identical to Stan. In order to be Dipper and Mabel's grand ''uncle'' and still have the last name as them, he ''has'' to have a brother. [[spoiler: And this is confirmed in the middle of S2.]]

** Actually, it's more convoluted than that. [[spoiler:In a two-dimensional world, as in the 3D one, the right and proper place for eyes is at the ''boundaries'' of one's self. Since Bill's eye is situated in the center of his entire being and is looking at a direction ''perpendicular'' to his flat self, it can be considered to stare ''into the third dimension'' - which is apt considering what we know of him. For humans, the equivalent would be called the ''ThirdEye''.]]

**That means the Apocalypse that the magic mailbox mentioned would happen in 3012, is Time Baby's return and his conquest of earth.

** Also: they're encountered malicious shapeshifters before, and have been tricked into helping them. Mayebe they were worried that it only ''seemed'' like a normal person, and didn't want to let them out just in case.

* So what would happened if Mabel didn't took the Rift by accident and Dipper and Ford managed to seal the Rift? Well assuming that Ford drove Stanley and his employees away from his home and Dipper stays with Ford as his apprentice, the Pines twins would have been torn apart from each other. Mabel would have fallen into depression because of Dipper leaving her, Stanley would have probably been arrested in a maximum security prison due to a failed scamming attempt and Ford would have made Dipper into a one-dimensional research obsessed student as mentioned above. In other words, had the Rift sealing goes exactly as planned, ''Gravity Falls'' would have ended on a [[BittersweetEnding bittersweet note]]; The Rift is sealed and Bill will never invade Gravity Falls but the bonds and relationships between the Pines family has been broken apart. Mabel's foolishness actually saved her family from being torn apart.
