Added DiffLines:

** Even the Buzzards, Scrooge's board, who otherwise never really got along with him, look utter ''pissed'' at Glomgold's posturing. [[spoiler: Granted, the Season 2 finale casts this in a darker light, but even then, they could have standards.]]

Added DiffLines:

* VisualPun: The device Glomgold uses to stop time is a ''stop''watch.

Added DiffLines:

* InnocentlyInsensitive: Holding a staged funeral and not telling Uncle Donald about it would certainly qualify. When you think about it, the fake funeral comes off as a sick joke to Donald, who just reconciled with his uncle is trying to work things out with him.


* EtTuBrute: Scrooge to everyone else who tell him he's just delirious from gold fever, accusing them of refusing to help him find the "thief". He even outright says this to Manny when he also starts agreeing with Huey.

Added DiffLines:

* RewatchBonus: When Scrooge strikes Manny's cart of junk with his cane, the sound of something falling to the floor and rolling away is amidst the metallic rattling. As the flashback reveals, that hidden sound was the Time Teaser watch falling into Glomgold's clutches.

* RealityEnsues:
** While the boys are stunned to find Scrooge is going insane over losing 87 cents, Scrooge points out it's not the amount that's important, it's the fact that someone managed to steal anything from his ultra secure vault.
** When Scrooge starts becoming erratic, investors start panicking and turn around to the second richest person in town: Glomgold.
** Glomgold tries to take advantage of being able to stop time for the chance to be able to rob Scrooge's money bin. However, his lack of fitness and equipment meant that literally having all the time in the world wouldn't matter if he can't carry the money while climbing up the ladder without having to make millions of trips, something that a character like him can't be bothered to put in the effort to do.
** The pizza boxes and soda cans mentioned above. Glomgold would've had to have had some kind of sustenance to survive a year of frozen time.

* BothSidesHaveAPoint: Scrooge eventually concedes to Huey that he is sick and needs rest. Likewise after Huey discovers the fake page in the Junior Woodchuck Guide Book, he realizes that Scrooge's crazy ramblings may not be so crazy after all.

Likewise after Huey discovers the fake page in the Junior Woodchuck Guide Book, he realizes that Scrooge's crazy ramblings may not be so crazy after all. Scrooge is also right to point out that his extremely secure Money Bin being compromised is a legitimate issue that should be treated seriously, regardless of how little money was actually stolen.
