    • Elise: There is no way I could pull the trigger on a gun. I'm too blinged out.

    • Elise: Besides, I couldn't kill anybody with these hands. Since I grew these puppies out, my manicure means I'm a mani-can't for manual labor.

    • Emerson: You two backing up each others' alibis means bupkiss. You're canoodling and cahooting and you're cahooting to kill.

    • Lily: (to Dwight) It's time to nip you in the budding romance.

    • Chuck: The only thing I could smell was a swashbuckling do-gooder who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Emerson: Smells like puppy crap to me.

    Allusions (6)

    • Emerson: Anger leads to hate. Referencing the movie Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999) in which Jedi master Yoda states that "Fear is the path to the Dark Side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering."

    • Olive: Missed it by that much. Referencing Maxwell Smart, Agent 86 from the TV series Get Smart. One of the most popular comedy series of the mid-60's, the program starred Don Adams and Barbara Feldon and was notable for its many catchphrases. Max would often use this one after some disastrous (and often fatal) occurrence.

    • Rob Wright: With nowhere to house these animals, dogcatchers are calling it "The Big Sleep." The Big Sleep is a celebrated 1939 detective novel by Raymond Chandler and is considered one of the seminal works in American mystery fiction. Featuring his iconic detective character Philip Marlowe, the book has been twice adapted into movies.

    • Olive's disguise Referencing Eva Gabor's performance as Lisa Douglas on the TV series Green Acres (1965-1971), which starred Eddie Albert as Oliver Wendell Douglas and Gabor as his wife. The city couple move to a farm despite being completely inept at farming and chores. Specific references to Lisa Douglas include the Hungarian accent, the 60s haute couture and a pig being used as a pet.

    • Olive: Maybe he's the old priest and the young priest is coming. Referencing The Exorcist (1973), one of the most celebrated horror movies of all time. It is based on the 1971 novel by William Peter Blatty. In the story an older priest is assisted by a younger priest in battling the supernatural by attempting to free a girl of demonic possession.
