  • Jory names the digital pet "Fluffy Periwinkles the Mischievous Cat."
  • Jory is the only one who correctly pronounces the word "Tamagotchi."
  • The digital pet catching on fire in Jory's gloved hand is the closest he's come to injury so far in the series. The Hannah Montana pen, Zune, and air bag have since diminished the impact of this event.
  • In the season 5 clip show, the digital pet bursting into flames in the microwave was shown twice.


  • Jory: And our new Panasonic microwave. Her name is Whoopi, and incidentally, we also shoot on a Panasonic camera? Sponsorship?

Jon: No!

Jory: I'm just throwing it out there! Maybe it could. We'll do lunch or something!

  • Riley: Smells kind of...

Jory: Death-like?
Riley: Like garbage disposal cat?

  • Riley: [laughing] that thing [the digital pet] went back on fire in his [Jory's] hand! He was like: "what's wrong with this picture?"
  • Jory: Don't ever underestimate the sly cat!
