During the opening scene of this episode, there is a cool
shot of pterodactyls flying right toward and over the
Although we don't get a close look, the basket Will is
carrying at the beginning of the episode appears to be
filled with giant strawberries (although not as giant as the

At 3:08 on the DVD, the basket of strawberries gets left
