    • (leaving the Dubois sisters' funeral) Toni: What did you hear? Was it an accident? Nick: I heard suicide. Toni: Poor things. The whole building could have gone up.

    • Bobby (to Yuri): I was thinking... if you'd like to have dinner with us... Bobbi: I'm sure Yuri has other plans. Yuri: No. Not really. Bobbi: Well, I'm sure he'd rather be alone. Bobby: But he shouldn't. Bobbi: He's not coming to dinner!

    • Yuri: You got a wife and kids? New Owner: Yeah, why? Yuri: Well, you know, the Dubois apartment, it's pretty cramped for a family. So, I figure, you give me a month, I tear down a wall, I relocate a tenant... New Owner: Do I look like a masochist? No, no, no... a couple of touch-ups here and there; I'm going to put this palace up for sale.

    • Toni: New owner, jacked up rents; we could all be squeezed out. Yuri: They still need a Super, right? Toni: And you think the new owner will keep you on? Yuri: Well, why mess with success? Toni: Oh, yeah, sure, right... I mean, what with your hard work, your dedication, your way (she begins to laugh) ...with people. Your way with people... (laughing uncontrollably) Grandma Tan (in Cantonese): Poor deluded bastard.

    • Yuri: Hey, listen, if the building is sold, can I count on you for a reference? Carlisle: Actually, I've been thinking about you. (he goes into his apartment) Yuri: Yeah? Carlisle: Here (hands Yuri a book), it's one of my earlier works, some of it's a bit out-dated, but the gist remains the same. (Yuri reads the book title: Jobless, Yes; Hopeless, No)

    • Jason Dedrick and Tom Saunders were credited as "The Mottomakers".

    • This episode carried the CTV advisory: This program may contain coarse language, mature subject matter, and scenes that may be disturbing to some viewers. Viewer discretion advised.

    Trivia (2)

    • Bobbi: I told him. Yuri: Told who, what? Bobbi: Bobby, about us. Yuri: Us? What us? We slept together once, months ago. This occured in The Tell-Tale Latex, when after doubting Bobby's faithfulness, Bobbi sleeps with Yuri after a night of drinking.

    • When Bobby is chasing Yuri around the apartment building, Yuri tries to escape by going into the Dubois sisters' apartment; he is on the second floor when he does this. In the previous episode, The Misses Dubois Turn Out The Lights, their apartment door showed #223; however, they appeared to live on the first floor from the exterior shots shown in the episode.

    Allusions (1)

    • Yuri (to Bobby): Pay attention, okay, Mr. Pollyanna? Pollyanna is a 1913 novel, written by Eleanor H. Porter; the main character in the book is Pollyanna who is always cheerful and optimistic, and brings happiness to the lives of everyone around her. The term 'Pollyanna' was originally applied to people who fit that mould, but has more recently been used to mean someone who is naively optimistic, and expects people to act in a moral fashion, despite all evidence to the contrary.
