    'Frag Him'

    From Redditor u/SnipersWSteak:

    In Toy Story (1995), when the toy soldiers attack Woody, sarge says “Frag him!”

    This is a term deriving from the Vietnam War where a soldier would “accidentally” kill an officer they think to be incompetent.

    Final Song Reflects Woody's New Friendship

    From Redditor u/Tokyono:

    At the start of Toy Story (1995), Randy Newman sings “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” on his own. In the end credits, he sings it in a duet with Lyle Lovett.

    At first, Woody is Andy's only favorite toy, so one singer. In the end, Woody and Buzz are both Andy's favorite toys, so two singers are used.
