* Think about that : New Teacher is an horrible episode. Why is Arnold participating at Simmons's exclusion ? Should he at least either give him better advice in order to be a good teacher or reason his roomates ? In fact, if you watch closely, it's Helga's fault, it's her who conspires in order to fire Simmons. The fact that he resigns after a morning is also stupid. Either he finds an another job and does not need to be a teacher or just remains jobless and has to find an another work but can't refuse to teach again. Wartz can also promote him in another class. Of note of this episode, it seems to be strange that Goose finally breaks down in front of students while he works at an army. They should have made this episode differently, they should have focus on Helga and Simmons with Simmons transfering Helga's to Goose class for exemple.

* Why is grandpa's nickname for Arnold the surname that they share? That's... not terribly specific. All three people living in that apartment are Shortman!

** Lila didn't become a love interest of Arnold's until the third season. Not really an answer, but I just pretend that "What's Opera, Arnold?" happened before "Arnold's Valentine" despite airing after (like how 24 hours to Live is the chronological first episode since it's a remake of the pilot). It's not like the order they aired in is the order in which they happened, right?

* Why was Ruth even in "What's Opera, Arnold?" Even if we ignore the fact that she was on a field trip with the fourth graders (it may have been multiple grades, since there was a 5th grade teacher there with them too.) by this point in the series, he'd gotten over his crush on Ruth when he realized he didn't know her that well. So why does Helga still hate her, and why does Arnold dream about her? Even after Lila had been introduced

**Carob isn't the ''same thing'' as chocolate; it's a substitute in that he could eat it instead of chocolate and it's used as an alternative to chocolate for some health-food eaters and people with chocolate allergies. Allergies to carob are rare, but Arnold said Chocolate Boy was allergic to carob, which suggests it's the carob itself (it's its own compound) that he's allergic to.

* In the episode where Arnold helps Chocolate Boy stop eating chocolate, he introduces him to healthier substitutes. One of those was ''carob'', which Arnold says is a chocolate substitute. Chocolate Boy eats them and then breaks out in hives. What's in ''carob'' that would make someone have an allergic reaction? And why would Chocolate Boy not have a similar reaction when eating chocolate?

** Yeah, it's a bit creepy, but in a world where teen pregnancies are seemingly becoming the norm (hell, a ''fifth'' grader got pregnant at a school in my area) it doesn't surprise me that much. It's meant to be PlayedForLaughs and it's doubtful that Helga wants to rape him or something. Probably...

** You do realize that cheese, croutons and such were probably also available to prevent the salad from being "too bland"? Plus in real life, there's been cases of people getting fat off of ''grapefruit''. It's quantity just as much as what you're eating and Harold was probably eating more than usual because of the calorie loss shock.
