* SurpriseParty: In "Dolphin Talk," it is Harry's birthday and Stanley, Mimi and Marci, Dennis and Elsie are all throwing him a surprise party, but he keeps popping up at inopportune moments when they're trying to get the party together. Thus, they go into ''The Great Big Book of Everything'' to learn about dolphin communication and settle on using hand signals to indicate to each other if Harry is about show up. In the end, things work out great and Harry is very surprised as he had forgotten that it was his birthday.

* EmbarrassinglyPainfulSunburn: "Sunburn Stanley" has Stanley getting one during a trip to the beach after ignoring his parents' advice to put on sunscreen. He goes as red as a lobster over a large part of his body and ends up learning about lobsters from ''The Great Big Book of Everything''.

* WeirdnessCensor: On the rare occasions that anyone who is not Stanley, Grandma Griff, or one of Stanley's friends sees any weirdness associated with ''The Great Big Book'' (animals that have come out, etc.) or something like Harry & Elsie singing/talking, they will dismiss it as their eyes playing tricks on them or some sort of hallucination. One of the most blatant examples is in "A Boy's Best Friend Is His Fish" when Stanley and Mrs. Griff use a computer at the pet store to research goldfish and Mrs. Griff watches Harry and Elsie perform the online version of the ''The Great Big Book of Everything'' song, only to comment that that looked just like Harry and Elsie, but it couldn't be.

Elsie then winks directly at Stanley from the monitor.
