    Allusions (2)

    • Geritol Fiscus: To my wife. I think I'll keep her. At an expensive restaurant, Fiscus makes a joke toast to Shirley Daniels whom another patron has mistaken for his wife. The joke is based on a then current television ad for Geritol where a husband boasts about his spouse's achievements and energy, only to end with the agonizingly sexist line: "My wife. I think I'll keep her."

    • In Search Of... Fiscus: Just me and Leonard Nimoy. In search of the perfect woman. Talking about dating with Shirley Daniels, Fiscus makes a joke about Leonard Nimoy's documentary TV series In Search Of... (1976-1982). The syndicated half hour series purported to provide the facts regarding mysteries and paranormal phenomenon such as the Loch Ness Monster and UFOs. Nimoy acted as narrator.
