** Just for the record, Earl's dance was named "Mating Dance" and Robbie's dance was "Dance of Love", and whilst Earl's seem to be voluntary Robbie's was a reflexion (probably a metaphore for an erection), that mean both dances are probably different things. Of course the names may be missleading and maybe should be backward, but the show has certain level of NegativeContinuity.

*** There's also the fact that the episode presents "Hurling Day" as something that the senior dinosaurs are actually looking forward to since it means they'll be reunited with all the loved ones who went before them -- and for most of the episode, Ethyl ''wants'' to be thrown into the tar pit, tries to talk Robbie out of rescuing her... and only changes her mind at the last moment when she realizes that staying alive means she'll get to make Earl's life miserable a while longer. So it's not that Earl is the only dinosaur in Pangaea who's afraid of upsetting his wife and kids by killing a beloved grandparent -- it's that Ethyl is the only dinosaur in Pangea who ''hates her son-in-law so much that she's willing to put off her own eternal happiness just so she can watch him suffer for a bit longer.''

Added DiffLines:

* In "The Son Also Rises", Earl uses X-ray specs on Fran and giggles that he can see her underwear. The thing is that nearly every dinosaur character [[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal doesn't wear pants]] and it's unlikely Fran would be wearing a bra considering that the female dinosaurs clearly don't have breasts, so what exactly is Earl seeing?


* In "What Sexual Harris Meant", one of the {{Double Entendre}}s Al "Sexual Harris" mentions using is remarking to a girl that she had two items he'd like to check out. One could assume that he's talking about breasts, except dinosaurs are reptiles and the dinosaurs of this show clearly do not have NonMammalMammaries.

**Knowing THAT you can die of old age, is different from knowing when death from old age would hit in a species that never dies naturally.

* In "Switched at Birth", after going through the Baby's old stuff, she finds the nest that the egg was kept in, labled as property of a former classmate in La Ma's class. This is what sets off the plot, due to the fact that an earthquake caused the eggs to roll out. In the flashback, the mothers think they grabbed each others egg by mistake, but why would this have caused them to take home the wrong nests?

Added DiffLines:

******* This troper's interpretation: The Mating Dance is a way for a male to show off sexual prowess. The baby dance, on the other hand, was a way to show off parenting abilities. The entire point was that Fran was no longer judging her husband by his ability to bring her to orgasm, but rather by his ability to help her raise their children (for example: soothing a baby to sleep).

Added DiffLines:

****** It's the mating dance, but it's still a ''dance'', it isn't actually mating.
