A Bout with a Trout mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Lulu lands on the book, before the drawing of a donkey attacks her, there is a wooden sign hanging that says school. The edges are quite jagged. After a bit of singing from the school house, another shot of the same sign shows it much less jagged. The style of the letters also change as well, and the metal part of the sign holding the sign to the post.

Continuity mistake: A full school day passes from when Lulu is first at school to get her fishing pole and to when she returns after awakening from being knocked out. It even looks darker from time passing. But the shadow of the tree is exactly the same, when the moving of the sun would have changed that.

Continuity mistake: As Lulu’s shoulder angle tells her that she will turn into a mule if she doesn't go to school, the shading on Lulu’s chin suddenly changes and gets darker, like a shadow just appeared from nowhere.

Question: After the Shoulder Angel appears on Lulu's stick and says that she's playing hooky, and it's a bad sign, the Shoulder Demon then appears and says some snarky remarks to the Angel. I have listened to that part over and over again trying to catch it, but I can't quite make out what the demon says, and the DVD does not have subtitles. To the best I can tell, it sounds like the shoulder demon appears and says "Naaaa! Take a powder, sister! Fishin’s for fishes, hairline." But that doesn't make any sense. Can someone tell me what she actually says? And then after the angel tells Lulu that if she doesn't go to school, she will grow up to be a mule, the demon says another line I can't quite make out, but sounds like she says "Ahhh! your brother's mustache!" as she pulls the Angel's halo down over her. What does she actually say there?

Question: At the end, the teacher makes Lulu write something on the black board 1000 times. It's difficult to make out, but what exactly is it she is writing?

Chosen answer: She writes "I'll never play hooky again."
