Out of his beak comes Antiquated Linguistics as he belittles her, telling her how childish and unfounded astrology is. However, she has such a hard time understanding him that she reverts into a baby! Prior to that, Shirley said that she would impress the duck with her "keen wit and intellect".
    Shirley: Like, umm, what's your sign?
    Duck: Ah! A devotee of the unseen world. The universe fantastique. Almost amusing in an infantile sort of way, though terribly childish and laughably unfounded.
    (Shirley reverts into a baby)
    Duck: I believe Voltaire put it best when he likened astrology to astronomy as the mad daughter of a wise mother. Don't you agree?
    Shirley: I go like, nappy-poo now. Goo googoo gaa gaa gaa? (she crawls away)
    Duck: Quite.

  • Shout-Out:
    • Babs attempts to pick up a guy using Lauren Bacall's "You know how to whistle?" quote from To Have and Have Not.
    • Shirley's psychic rampage is a G-rated version of the prom scene of Carrie, with punch taking the place of pig's blood. Babs even asks Fifi if she's seen that particular movie.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: Fifi, usually unlucky in love because of her smell, is the only that succeeds in find an older boy interested in her (justified, even the boy is a skunk).
