Did You Know?
In a spoof of a scene from _The Sound of Music (1965)_, Peter calls his children using a boatswain's pipe (or whistle or call; "boatswain" is pronounced, and sometimes spelled, "bo's'un"). The boatswain's pipe has been in use by navies around the world since at least since the 13th century. Its two tones (high-pitched and lower), sounded in sequence, can produce over a hundred signals.

The car door opens backwards when Peter steps out of the passenger side to enter the fair. This is mentioned on the commentary for this episode. See more

You see kids your father is nothing but a fizzle!
Nobody calls me a fizzle and gets away with it! Except that one guy who called me a fizzle and then ran off. He got away with it. But most people who call me a fizzle don't get away with it. Well, actually, that guy who got away with it was the only one who ever called me a fizzle. After today... only half the people who ever called me a fizzle will have gotten away with it.
