Big Lipped Alligator Moment: In the airport the children decide to get their pictures developed of the rainbow. Instead of asking the sheriff if they can, they opt to duck and hide leading to an elaborate chase around the airport. The BLAM comes from the fact that cartoon sound effects are added in and are completely out of place. The entire film basically stops so the Sheriff can get one-upped in slapsticky ways.
- The strange girl in the tree the kids meet when they get dropped in Kansas. She creeps them out for a couple of minutes before her father drives them to the sheriff station, talking about how she never gets out of the tree. A lot of time and attention is devoted to such an insignificant character. She also gets this odd line which solidifies her BLAM status.
Girl: You fell out of the sky.
Mike: You saw us?
Girl: I saw colours.
