Continuity mistake: The school house says "Or would you rather be a fish?" as Lulu plummets into the water around the letter blocks the school house is sitting on. She lands in the water next to two blocks reading F and C, the F block being a light blue and the C block being a slightly darker blue. But when it cuts to a close up of her in the water, both blocks are suddenly a very dark blue. (00:05:15)

Audio problem: During the dream sequence in the song, Lulu begins swinging from three different stars depicting 3 different faces of celebrities at the time in black and white that have their lips moving with the song as they sing. However their lips are off sync with the lyrics by a little bit and are moving slower. (00:04:25)

Continuity mistake: In the dream, the school house asks Lulu if she'd rather be a pig and pulls up a blackboard with the word PIG written on it. There is a stick of chalk at the bottom of the board to the right. When it cuts to a close up of the blackboard, the chalk suddenly moves closer to the center of the board and is almost under the word PIG. (00:04:40)

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."
