Quotes

Narrator: At this stage Mr. Norris was faced with two major divergent theories concerning his Servatin ancestors.

Crazy Credits

The credits for this episode begin with a close-up of a piece of paper slipped through a mail slot in the door. The camera then moves to other papers on the floor, showing the rest of the credits, as the theme music plays. At the end of the music (coinciding with the animated foot and raspberry sound for the opening credits), a real foot in a fuzzy slipper steps on the last piece of paper. See more »
