Gene tries to prove he's not just a quitter by lobbying to get the recipe of his favorite candy reverted, while Teddy wrangles Bob into illegal golf-ball collecting.
- And Your Reward Is Edible: In the end, Gene gets a box full of the surplus original formula Chunky Blast Offs.Tina: Look at that thing. There's enough candy in there to last you 'till your twenties.
Bob: I give it a month.
Louise: I give it a week.
Gene: And I will spend that week in this box. Please forward my mail to this address.
- Last Minute Project: Gene makes a popsicle stick model of the Parthenon for class. Or rather, he hastily glues a handful of sticks together.
- Manchild: Ferdie Spratt may be the nominal owner of the candy factory, but he behaves more like a kid hanging around his dad's office.
- Overly Long Gag: Teddie spends an awful lot of time gagging and trying not to throw up after swallowing too much of the scummy water in the water hazard.
- Reality Ensues: Despite Gene's Rousing Speech convincing everyone to return Chunky Blast-Offs to the original formula, they reject it once they find out how much it would cost.
- Rousing Speech: ...Which proves futile, as the company doesn't change the formula back.
- Sweet Tooth: Not just Gene, but also Linda, who takes the opportunity to raid the factory gift shop for candy.
- They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: In-Universe. Gene hates the new formula for Chunky Blast-Offs and tries to get the company to change it back.
- Walk and Talk: Invoked when Ferdie says that deals are not made in boardrooms anymore, but while walking down hallways and at urinals.
