So funny in the simplicity of its execution: In the midst of the escalating prank war between the Petes' Dad and Ellen's Dad in "Apocalypse Pete", Little Pete has Artie push Ellen's home sideways by a little more than an inch off; the "change" so miniscule that it only had actor Toby Huss put his weight on the house's side wall to depict it. (So not even the show's only occasional lite special effects were required!) The payoff comes when Little Pete and his Dad watch through their hidden camera Ellen's Dad (played by Steve Buscemi) bemused to find his daily coming-home-from-work routine being disrupted when he places his key a little more than an inch off his front door's keyhole!
In "35 Hours", Big Pete has to resort to asking Endless Mike for help getting rid of the family who bought the Wrigley home from Little Pete. Endless Mike mulls it over — while caressing a taxidermy cat — and asks if Pete wants a refill. The camera pans down to reveal that in return for the request, Mike has subjected Pete to several pounds of ice stuffed down the front of his pants.
