    • (Oliver has broken his leg on their Switzerland honeymoon)
      Lisa: This is a fine honeymoon you've got me into!
      Oliver: I'm sorry.
      Lisa: I never whould have married you if I'd known you were accident prune.
      Oliver: Prone!
      Lisa: That's what you are. A prone prune!

    Trivia (3)

    • Haney's truck is equipped with beer on tap and the whistle from a steamboat.

    • Oliver takes a beating in this episode: Lisa's father slams the door on his nose, Lisa drops luggage on him from a window, the butler repeatedly hits him with the kitchen door and Kimball hits him in the head with a hammer.

    • The rummage sale is being sponsored by C.R.U.B.T.R.F.F. It's never explained to Oliver what it stands for, only that it's "a local group".

    • Haney tries to sell Oliver a Buster Brown collar worn by Freddie Bartholomew (Freddie was a popular child actor in the 1930s) and a pair of elevator pants worn by actor Mickey Rooney in Tall in the Saddle.
