    • Bright: It's perfectly delicious!

    • Ephram: (to Amy) Will you help me?

    Trivia (3)

    • Madison is now a waitress in New York and lives with her brother in an apartment. She had a baby boy which she gave up for adoption. The boy was adopted by the Wagleys in San Marin, CA. Rose loved museums and had originally planned to study art history. The museum storyline will return in the fourth season.

    • Actually, some banks that have safe-deposit boxes have them in an area that is accessible (and monitored) 24/7. So the bank doesn't necessarily have to be open for them to access the box.

    • Amy and Rose went to the bank to look in the safe deposit box on a Sunday. Banks aren't open on a Sunday.

    Allusions (2)

    • Harold: So mother, I couldn't help but notice Irv's truck back in its rightful place in your driveway this morning. Edna: Couldn't help yourself or couldn't stop yourself, Nancy Drew? Nancy Drew is a fictional detective character who has been featured in books for teens and children since the 1930s. Edward Stratemeyer created the Nancy Drew character in 1930.

    • Rose: (To Amy) Just some mementos. My mother's engagement ring, Aunt Mabel's opals, and, of course, our Swiss bank account numbers.
      Favorites of deposed dictators and fictional spies, Swiss bank accounts are coded with a number instead of a name. In 1934, the Swiss passed a law which prohibited Swiss banks from revealing the existence of an account or disclosing information about it without the client's consent.
