  • Show Within a Show: Last Days of our Lives, the soap opera about senior citizens that Gramma watches.
  • Reality Ensues: Even though the Feel Better Biscuits make them feel better, they still have to go to the hospital for all the damage Gramma's booby traps did.
  • Watch Out for That Tree!: While Cricket and Tilly are fiddling around on Bill's tractor at the beginning, he warns them they could hit a tree if they're not careful. Cue the kids doing just that.
