The boys are protected from the seven-spotted yellow lizards in the hole because of all the onions they ate. The warden wants the money, but it has Stanley's name on it (Zero reads this - because Stanley taught him!). The camp is shut down and the Warden, Mr. Sir, and Mr. Pendanski are arrested. Stanley gives Zero half the treasure, and Zero spends his hiring detectives to find his mom.Stanley's dad finds the recipe for foot odour: peaches and onions. They call it Sploosh, after the stuff in jars that Zero ate to survive. The baseball player that Stanley suposedly stole trainers from advertises the Sploosh. Stanley and Zero become next door neighbors

In the scene where Madame Zeroni is explaining to Elya Yelnats about the curse that will be bestowed upon him if he doesn't carry her up the mountain after presenting the pig to Myra's father, her blouse is a blue button-up with gold stripes and no collar. Then the camera looks at Elya, and then back at Madame Zeroni. When it looks back at Madame Zeroni, you can see that her blouse is now a gold button-up with a collar.



The Attorney General in the final scenes with the cowboy hat and round sunglasses is the stunt coordinator. The director gave him a small part to say thank you for his contribution to the film.
