  • Quotes (10)

    • Kevin: Sam, I want a drink only men drink. Something that makes women sick. Sam: I'll give you some more coffee. Kevin: No no, I want something stronger than coffee. Sam: I'll give you yesterday's coffee.

    • Norm: If you're gonna give up sex you might as well give up talking. What fun is messing around if you can't tell the guys about it.

    • Norm (talking about the player piano): Sammy, why do you keep something around here that doesn't work? Carla (talking about Diane): Beause no one else will give her a job.

    • Coach: Want a beer, Norm? Norm: Does a rag doll have cloth knobs?

    • Continuity: Norm tells Buzz that he served in the army at Fort Dix, NJ. This is later contradicted in Daddy's Little Middle-Aged Girl, when he tells Rebecca's father that he served in the Coast Guard.

    Allusions (1)

    • Lafayette, we are here!: When Buzz yells this line out to Diane (thinking she is his comrades), he is referring to the line that was frequently attributed to General John Pershing, the commander of the American forces in World War I. The line is in recognition (and thanks) of the debt owed to the Marquis de Lafayette, who came from France to fight with the colonials during the American Revolution.
