Yakko is accused of "badgering the witness", a courtroom violation in which the interregator acts rudely toward a witness, when he is actually badgering the defendant. He then puts away the badger (as a pun), and brings out a goat as an act of "goating the witness". This is a pun on "goding the witness", a courtroom violation in which the interregator attempts to encourage the witness to continue his or her story to give the interregator an advantage. The judge responds to all this by warning them if they continue he will hold them in contempt, a term which means that the person has a bad relationship with the courtroom officials. This status often leads to a guilty verdict.

Today on "Mime Time": Throwing an imaginary football.
Mindy follows Pussyfoot onto a construction site, while Buttons attempts to keep her out of danger.
The title is a parody of the Tennessee Williams play Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
The cat that Mindy chases is Pussyfoot, best known for appearing in cartoons with Marc Anthony the bulldog.
At one point‚ parodies of the characters of Popeye and Swee' Pea (here named "Green Bean") and Tom & Jerry appear at the construction site, most likely to emphasize the point that the whole "baby being chased on a construction site" plotline has been done to death in other cartoons.
The Warners also appear at the same point. Wakko runs back to kiss Buttons inexplicably.
When Buttons protects Mindy by extending a plank‚ he ends up on the moon and sees Marvin the Martian.
Part of Mindy's Mom's head, specifically, her chin, is seen when she is trying to work the toaster.
Amanda Duff from the Elmyra's Family episodes of Tiny Toons can be seen in the crowd at the end.
This is the first time that Mindy has a conversation with an adult and repeatedly asks, "Why?".
Buttons follow Mindy and Pussyfoot as they are walking to the end of a I beam. Buttons nails a board to the bottom of the I beam with a nail gun. The next scene the board is on top of the beam. When Button comes back with more wood the board is on the bottom again.
