trivia: While the "Carrying the Torch" theme was still underway, Aaron Shurtleff pointed out that Dong Dong would make a great goo, though he figured the theme was already planned out and it was too late. Since the Olympics theme was in fact being created one day at a time to keep current with the news, Scott re-assured Aaron with the statement, "There's still room for Mr. Dong." Ultimately, Scott decided to hold Aaron's pseudo-request for the end-of-season bonus goos like most other requests. (Besides the obvious joke based on the athlete's name, Scott also considered making a Law & Order joke.)
