He turned to his son Abe and daughter Sarah Lee, both of whom were in his band, and asked them if they remembered the next line, which they awkwardly admit that they didn't. After saving face with some ad libbing, Arlo takes his kids back stage and scolds them by saying "I know ''[[Music/WoodyGuthrie my]]'' [[Music/WoodyGuthrie dad]]'s songs!"

* Arlo thinking that Officer Obie is going to give him a medal for being so brave and honest on the telephone. Hey, he didn't expect it, but that it even crossed his mind is hilarious.

* Arlo is informed by Jimmy Carter's son Chip that Richard Nixon apparently owned a copy of the original ''Alice's Restaurant'' record. He's suddenly reminded of Nixon's infamous Watergate tape, which mysteriously omitted 18 minutes and 20 second of recording.
