    • Mike: Hey, this is amazing. I'm on the subway; some woman tries to steal a pair of my underwear. Nikki: From your gym bag? Mike: No. Stuart: That's why I wear two pairs. Carter: Funny, I thought that was a court order.

    • Mike: Last night was the greatest night of my life. I walked into that bar and I was like a magnet. I mean, people were coming up to me, buying me drinks, shaking my hand... I woke up this morning, I had a hangover and a sore wrist. Stuart: Huh. Been there.

    • Mike: My friend Sebastian saw you at a dance club Friday night. Stacey: How'd he know it was me? Mike: You had your tongue in his mouth.

    • Mike: Stuart, what makes someone a hero? Stuart: I'd have to go with x-ray vision.

    • Mayor: Mike, look out that window. We preside over the greatest city in the world. Mike: Sir, that's New Jersey.

    Notes (7)

    • Michael J. Fox included this episode as one of his all-time favorites.

    • Spoofs: Jerry Maguire (1996)

    • Music: "One Week" - Barenaked Ladies

    • The DJ on the radio says the Spin Doctors are on next, and then the opening theme (composed by the Spin Doctors) begins.

    • The opening theme is slightly updated to fit in Jennifer Esposito's character (Stacey). She never appeared in the season 2 theme.
