    • (in a dream) Emily: Hey, baby. Beautiful wedding. Jake: It's too bad you couldn't be here to see this. Emily: It's too bad it's not going to work out. Jake: I'm so sorry. I tried. Emily: No, you didn't.

    • Mary: I never thought I'd see you here. Jake: Oh yeah? Why's that? Mary: Oh, I can think of one or two reasons. Jake: Uh-huh. I have no idea what you're talking about. Mary: Would you care for a clue? Jake: No, I'm good, thanks. Mary: Let's see... lost her virginity, Bannerman Park, Halloween, 1995. Jake: Okay, Mary, I have no idea what you're talking about, and neither does my very, very good friend, Walter, who happens to be your big brother, okay? So let's just leave it that way.

    • (in the church before the wedding) Nikki: Jake, you remember David? Jake: The divorce lawyer. Nice to see you again. Let me ask you, do you go trawling around from wedding to wedding looking for potential clients, or what? Hey, here's an idea, find all the wedding gifts, right, you split them up now, save everyone the headache later. Nikki: Jake, David is here as my date.

    • Christian: Jake, we're both professionals. Only difference is, you make hundreds of dollars, I make hundreds of thousands.

    • (trying to figure out where Doug could be) Mary: Look, Jake, you're the last person to see him, what'd he seem like to you? Jake: He seemed maybe a little nervous, maybe. Mary: What would he have to be nervous about? I mean, sure, it's only me. And you know what? I was way more nervous than he was. If anybody should have had cold feet here, it should have been me! I mean, what does he think, that he's going to do better? Yeah! Nice try, buddy! Jake: Okay, just calm down... Mary: You know what? I needs a cigarette! Does anybody here have a cigarette?

    Allusions (3)

    • The title of this episode, "A Horse Divided" is a pun on the quote from (most famously) Abraham Lincoln's speech of June 16, 1858, in his acceptance of the nomination to be the senator of Illinois. The full line from Lincoln's speech is, "A house divided against itself cannot stand." This is, in turn, from the Bible, Matthew 12:25, which says, "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand."

    • Christian: Skipping supper, I got me a hot date later. Jake: Really? Who's the lucky Craigslist escort? Craigslist is an online bulletin board with classified advertisements that offer practically everything for sale. It was started by Craig Newmark in 1995 as an email that Newmark distributed to friends in the San Francisco area, but as it grew in popularity, it was increased to a web-based service, eventually becoming multi-national.

    • Des: You lost your ring finger to pay for the wedding? Total "Gift of the Magi". "The Gift of the Magi" (1906) is a short story by O. Henry with an ironic twist. A poor couple gives Christmas gifts to each other; the wife has her long hair cut off and sells it in order to buy her husband a watch fob for his family heirloom watch, while the husband sells his family heirloom watch to buy his wife jewelled hair combs for her long hair.
