  • Shaggy wants to rush into a room where there's danger. He's also more perceptive.
  • The clerk shouts out that the new Jimmie Majeski album is pirated.
  • Despite all their criminal investigations, Daphne takes the fall for not knowing what a pirated tape is. She seems to be the voice of the unaware kids reading the comic.


Scooby: (thinking) Wow! We get to meet Jimmie Majeski in person! And he gets to meet me, in canine!
