    • Sam: It's a sad world we live in when Sam Malone becomes the voice of reason.

    • Coach: How's a beer sound, Norm? Norm: I don't know, Coach. I usually finish them before they get a word in.

    Notes (3)

    • Actually, Coach got tricked into buying the "Joke Napkins" in Season One. The episode was "The Tortelli Tort." Hope this helps.

    • This is the first time Coach is bamboozled into buying something from a salesman.

    • This is Al Rosen's first speaking appearance - he was in the background of many previous episodes. Al's single line of dialogue in this episode - "Sinatra!" - earned him the nickname "The Man Who Said 'Sinatra!'" That was how the writers would refer to his character of Al in future scripts.

    Trivia (2)

    • Ted Danson is also cracking up at the second shout out of "Sinatra" by Al. He tries to hide it while drinking from his coffee cup.

    • Al Rosen is visibly cracking up at his own joke after the second "Sinatra!"
