Thora aside, as she obviously didn't want to disturb Arthur since he was so sound asleep, D.W.'s comments seemed perfectly, and completely in-character for her... there was one time (I believe it was, "The Short, Quick Summer"), where she actually says, "I was trying to make him feel rotten, but now he feels great, I'm a failure as a little sister!", that's EXACTLY what she was doing, she was trying to make Arthur feel rotten for sleeping through midnight, even though she was disappointed in nothing happening... plus, I thought the stuff she just randomly made up on the spot were pretty funny, "Big explosions! And giant mules jumping off cliffs into the ocean! Wow, it was great!" I mean, just imagine THAT... "SHREEEEEEEEK! WAIT, I DON'T KNOW HOW TO SWIIIIIIIIIIIM!" *Splash*
Now that I think about it (and re-watch it), you're right. The episode actually was pretty good, with both a good concept and execution. I'm not sure why I didn't like it the last time I saw it, I guess I must have been in a bad mood or something. It also had a lot of funny scenes, like the one with the "miserable meeting" where all of the parents gathered.

I forgot to mention too this episode features probably one of my favorite props from the whole show: D.W.'s bunny instant camera, that thing is so cute, lol.
It also has some great lines: "I'M RICH, I'M RICH! I'M A WEALTHY CHILD!"
