Real world referencesEdit

As usual, Bobby will have a daydream resulting in some kind of pop culture reference, such as the following:

  • Godzilla: Bobby has a nightmare of Aunt Ruth destroying Tokyo.
  • In a daydream of Bobby literally picking his nose at a fashion store, he tries on the "Snotnose", a gun from the Dick Tracy series, and a Pinocchio model, one that grows when he lies.
  • The Wizard of Oz: Aunt Ruth has Bobby chained to a chair. She then transforms into a witch and threatens him saying "Now I'll get you and your big fuzzy dog too!"
  • Iron Butterfly: In a prehistoric setting, one caveman tries to sing, In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.
  • Die Hard: Bobby dreams of being John McCane after a policeman asks his family, "Can you tax paying citizens help us?"
  • Mission Impossible: Bobby sets off to steal cookies before dinner in the style of this show.
