- Below is the text of the Thanksgiving poem recited in this episode:
- Ah, Thanksgiving Day at last,
- When we here mortals break our fast,
- And all of us both great and least,
- Sit down before a bountiful feast,
- We lift our prayers to God on high,
- Then stuff ourselves with pumpkin pie,
- Cranberry sauce and candy jams,
- Homemade rolls and turkey gams,
- Taters mashed with giblet gravy,
- Beans of green and string and navy,
- Turkey breast and corn bread dressing,
- All get munched after the blessing,
- Till it comes out of our ears,
- Our nose, our pores and through our tears,
- We eat a lot and then some more,
- While keeping one foot on the floor,
- We eat until we’re all done in,
- And then sit down and start again,
- Thanksgiving Day, ah what a treat,
- To eat and eat and eat and EAT!
- King Darius makes a reference to The Wizard of Oz by saying, "lions, tigers, and bears, oh my!"
- King Darius also references Elton John's lyrics in the song "Daniel" by saying "Daniel, my brother, you are older than me; Daniel, you're a star in the face of the sky!"
QuotesSarah Pratchett: Looks like this great day of thanks also contains a case of marital disharmony.
King Darius: Ah, one of my presidents. And two of my princes. What can I do for ya, boys?
President and Princes: Oh, King, live forever!
King Darius: Nice start.
King Darius: Daniel, my brother, you are older than me; Daniel, you're a star in the face of the sky!
Harlow Doyle: Ah me, ah me. I'd live thankfully, if only Harlow a stonecutter again might be!
Fairy: Then wake up, dufus!
