GENERAL THOUGHTS

I liked this one. Nice to see Leland is no longer a blithering idiot like he was in the pilot! Still a tad on the dopey side, however.

Montgomery's robot looks a lot like our main moose!

I personally like how Dotty exposes Catchum and Leland. She wiggles her ear in front of Leland's nose, causing him to sneeze. Robots can't sneeze.

QUOTES

CATCHUM: I gotta see Montgomery's science fair project!
LELAND: Why, Catchum? Montgomery always beats ya. He wipes the floor with ya! He pulverizes ya! He . . . .
CATCHUM: Enough, Bird Brain! I get the point! But this year's going to be different! This year, I'm gonna cheat!
LELAND: But Catchum, you always cheat!

LELAND: Uhh, I don't think I like this idea, Catchum.
CATCHUM: You're right, Do-do Brain, you don't think! That's what you got me for!

DOTTY: Freeze, swamp breath!

HERMIE: The odds of you winning a bet, Master Bingo, are two thousand one hundred forty three to one.
BINGO: And everyone said I didn't have a chance! Thanks, Hermie!
