  • Never Say "Die": When Superman tells Jimmy how narrowly he got rescued, he says, "Another minute and you'd have been food for the fishes."
  • Polly Wants a Microphone: The mysterious "Help, I'm drowning!" calls are words from a parrot.
  • Super Senses: Superman can see through fog and hear trouble while still far from shore.
