Don't Fool With a Phantom - S2-E8
Continuity mistake: The gang find Jonny tied up in a chair and he says it wasn't a publicity stunt. Both his arms are tied up to his sides by the rope. It cuts from the close up to show them all again, and suddenly Jonny is holding his hand to his head and Fred is suddenly pulling on the rope, his arm outside of the rope. (00:02:45)
Continuity mistake: When the gang 1st arrives at the beach. Fred stops the Mystery Machine. Although the van is stopped. The next shot shows Fred still sitting at the wheel, turning it, as if he is steering.
Trivia: Velma's famous line, "My glasses; I can't see without them!" was coined from her voice actress Nicole Jaffe when she lost her glasses during a recording session and then uttered of what became to be famous catchphrase of the bespectacled character. The writers liked the phrase so much that they decided to put the iconic scenes of Velma losing her glasses during the show.
Trivia: During the chase scene, there is an advert on the wall which says "H&B Tuna Co." - a reference to Hanna-Barbera.
Shaggy: Scooby-Snacks won't work on me this time.
Daphne: Would you do it for a Shaggy-Snack? A little something I whipped up.
Shaggy: Huh? A Shaggy-Snack?
Daphne: Yes, it's a pot-pie, with pizza crust, anchovies, pepperoni, cherries, all in a thick chocolate sauce.
Shaggy: Hahahaha! I'll do it! I'll do it!
Daphne: That puts the stairs back. But I wonder what the other switches do?
Velma: Well, with your luck, Daph, the next button you push will bring the roof down. But, go ahead.
Don't Fool With a Phantom - S2-E8
Shaggy: Hey, Scoob, aren't our wax statues the greatest?
Daphne: Just what are you fellas going to do with those wax dummies you made?
Shaggy: Well like simple, next time we have a mystery, those dummies can go instead of us.
Fred: There's only one problem. How to tell one pair of dummies from the other.
Shaggy: Very funny, very funny.
Scooby: Yeah. Rery funny.
Question: We never found out what the ham and chicken bones had to do with anything. They were ham and chicken until Scooby ate them. Afterwards, Shaggy wonders why the ghost would keep ham and chicken in the fridge. This was never answered in the episode. Why were they important?
Answer: During most episodes of "Scooby Doo, Where Are You?," the gang often split up to explore the latest haunted mansion or abandoned windmill or deserted amusement park. Scooby and Shaggy would generally end up together, Velma would often go off alone, and Daphne would frequently go exploring with Fred. It seemed to be a running theme in the "Scooby Doo" cartoons that Daphne was perpetually flirting with Fred. Fred, however, always seemed much more obliviously preoccupied with finding the next clue, foiling Daphne's amorous intentions. I have always been under the impression that the Scooby-Doo gang was a pretty sexually ambiguous group. More than a few people have suggested that athletic, well-coiffed, ascot-wearing Fred, and bookish Velma were early archetypes of gay/lesbian teens. The show existed in a time when several cartoons suggested sexual ambiguity in its characters: Effete Snagglepuss, a repeatedly drag-wearing Bugs Bunny (who even appeared in TV's first same-sex wedding with phallic rifle-toting Elmer Fudd), prim and polite gophers Mac and Tosh, Peppermint Patty, Marcie, Schroeder and Linus from the "Peanuts" cartoons. But whether or not any then subversive homosexual undertones were ever intended in any of the characters, the oft-paired Daphne and Fred never seemed able to get their relationship beyond the lukewarm stage, much to Daphne's apparent chagrin.

Chosen answer: A ghost wouldn't have to keep any food in the fridge - they don't need to eat. So it is one thing that proves the ghost is not a ghost.
