  • Quotes (9)

    • Blanche: I don't think you heard what I said. You are staying here tonight! Lucy: Aunt Blanche, I'm 20 years old. I'll go wherever I please. Come on, Ed. Blanche: You walk out that door, missy, and you can forget about coming back!

    • Blanche: Oh, Lucy darlin', let me get a look at you! Beautiful smile, long hair, gorgeous figure! Why, it's just like looking in the mirror. Sophia: Get some Windex!

    • Lucy: Aunt Blanche, you always told me if you have a stallion eatin' oats outta your hand, you best close the gate 'for ya' give him the sugar. Dorothy: You said that Blanche.

    • Ed: Rose, you're amazing! I've never met anyone so smart! Dorothy: For a police officer, you've led a very sheltered life, Ed.

    • Lucy: I hope I wasn’t too much trouble. Dorothy: We enjoyed having you. Sophia: So did half of Miami.

    Notes (2)

    • The background shot during the closing credits features Dorothy, Rose and Blanche standing one behind the other, with Dorothy's hand around Rose's neck after she thinks she's seen the mouse.

    • Hallie Todd, who plays Blanche's young niece, is the same actress who went on to portray the mother in Hilary Duff's breakout show Lizzie McGuire.

    Trivia (4)

    • The earrings Lucy is wearing when she returns home from her interview belong to Blanch. We have seen her wear them in several episodes.

    • "Oh, Lord, it's terrible" is how Rose comes off when it comes to Lucy sleeping with a random guy on a first date, but Rose already did something similar in "Rose the Prude" when on a second or third date she did the same thing with Arnie on the boat. There's not much difference between a first and second date.

    • Blanche tells her niece that whenever she dates a guy, it's because she likes him, not because she wants him to like her. However, that's not true. In the Season 1 episode Blanche and the Younger Man, Blanche really went out of her way to impress a gentleman half her age, and she seemed most interested in making herself the type of woman he'd want to date.

    • It is revealed in this episode that Rose is a devoted Miami Vice fan.

    • Dorothy: Rose, are you telling a story or performing 'Our Town?' "Our Town" is a three act play by Thornton Wilder.
