Episode Quotes
Narrator: It was an amazing thing to watch Mr. Cutlip's reaction to that word, "fair". It was if that simple utterance was cutting through layers of dead wood.
(Cutlip sneezes)
Narrator: Then again, maybe not.



Episode Goofs
When the news is on, the Arnolds watch the Russians as they roll into Prague. However, this happened in August of 1968, not February 1969 when this episode is said to take place.



Cultural References
Episode Title: Loosiers

The episode title comes from the movie Hoosiers in which an underdog basketball team makes the state championship game.

The 1949 version of "Sweet Georgia Brown" by Brother Bones and the Shadows was obviously a referrence to The Harlem Globetrotters, the comedy basketball troupe uses the same version as their theme song.
