* CatsAreMean: Played with. It's not that they're mean, gnomes just have a hard time communicating with them so cat will sometimes (not always, however) treat them like prey.

** Which causes a tiny bit of FridgeLogic if thought about too much -- since, as noted below, gnomes are always twins, why didn't the audience ever see Susan's twin? David and Lisa never even mention any other grandchildren.
*** FridgeHorror -- just because gnomes have twins doesn't mean both twins ''survive'' into childhood...
