** In ''3rd Grade'', going back to the room which houses the key half after you've obtained it will have a golden trinket resting in its place. Joni even has new dialogue if you put it in her backpack.

But they do have a handful of moments where they act their age; the major ones are Santiago telling Joni, quote, "I guess this (taking a ring from the Egyptian tomb they visited) makes you an international jewel thief" in ''4th Grade Adventures'' and both he and Leslie participating in the pizza topping argument at the beginning of ''The Mystery of Microsneezia''.

Added DiffLines:

* OddballInTheSeries: ''4th Grade''. It's the only game in the main series where the Cluefinders never split up resulting in their TeamPet Socrates taking the place of Santiago's videophone whenever the player needs a hint during one of the puzzles.
