What an Idiot: When the Warners are told about the wishing star that landed near the town
You'd Expect: They would leave town right away while people are asleep and anybody notices the star has fallen, and if noticed by someone also up early for whatever reason, and asked where they were going, just say ''We're leaving Acme Falls for a while, but when we get back, things are going to be better for everyone. Trust us."
Instead: Not only do they leave roughly around 8 A.M., the time when most people are awake and out, but they actually tell the entire town about the wishing star and what you have to do get the wish (touch it), and naturally, they all immediately start racing to try to get to the wishing star first.
- This is actually Lampshaded:
Dot: Maybe we should've kept this our little secret.
