    • Al: Peg! It's me and my angel! Angel: She doesn't know you're there, Bundy. Just like when you're having sex!

    • Al: Turn the lights back off and give me the Hee Haw Girls! Angel: I've been sitting around waiting for them to die myself!

    • Al: Wow, it's amazing. I believe you. You are an angel. Hey, I want another wish. Aren't you supposed to get three? Angel: Hey, don't be a wish pig, Bundy. You want three wishes, get a genie.

    • Angel: What's it gonna take to convince you that I'm your guardian angel? Al: Fly around and play a harp. Angel: I'm an angel, not Tommy Tune.

    • Angel: Hey, this is no sleighride for me either. Usually on Christmas, I'd be over at Moses' house. We'd be out back by the pool, waiting for the new guy to jump off the diving board, and then Mo parts the water! Now that's Christmas! Yeah, but I sort of fell from grace. They caught me scalping tickets to a Jimi Hendrix concert... and here I am.

    Notes (6)

    • This episode is *not* syndicated on the fourth season DVD, as some people may claim. When this episode originally aired it aired as a one hour long episode. When split into two parts the second part ran longer than the usual 23 minutes or so, and thus two scenes had to be edited out: The beginning of the episode where Bud, Kelly and Peg make snowcones out of ice, and the scene where Marcy speaks to Al. This "full" second part rarely airs, as the runtime is over 25 minutes.

    • In the book Hollywood Raw, Joseph Bauer, a member of the MWC supporting crew, discussed this particular episode in great detail, focusing mostly on Sam Kinison's outrageous behavior off camera.

    • David Garrison does not appear in the second part of this episode. Marcy's appearance in the second part is edited out when this episode airs as two seperate episodes.

    • Sam Kinison, originally intended for the role of Al Bundy, guest stars in this episode.

    • Ted McGinley will later return to play Marcy's second husband Jefferson D'Arcy.
