** In "The Box", Stu orders a ridiculously complex play set set called "Kiddy Karnival" and spends the entire episode trying to simply build the damn thing. The set is never assembled. Angelica, of course, doesn't get why the babies ''are'' having so much fun with it and tries to ruin their fun. When she rips the box to pieces, the babies pause for a few moments, and then just pick up the various bits of cardboard and play with those, leading to Angelica, completely fed up, shouting the quote at the top of the page. Eventually, Stu decides (as a toy inventor) to give up on the Kiddy Karnival and market a line of cardboard boxes, after seeing how much fun the babies are having with it.

* Cats love boxes. They love hiding in them. It's the best way to catch a cat. Set out a box and leave. Come back in five minutes. The cat will be in the box. No muss, no fuss. They'll do the same with paper bags, if you can't find a box. Or laundry baskets, especially when there's laundry in them.
