  • Quotes (9)

    • Blanche: (explaining her desire to try out for Jeopardy and meet host Alex Trebek) You see, I never had a Canadian that wasn't on skates.

    • Dorothy: (referring to getting knocked up in high school) Ma, I am sixty years old. Why do you have to bring this up every single day? Sophia: So it won't happen again!

    • Dorothy: At college we used to pull all-nighters all the time. Blanche: Oh, that sounds so hard! Thank God I was pretty.

    • Dorothy: (watching Blanche run after the dog) Look at that! Man's best friend...chasing man's best friend!

    • Rose: (talking to Jake, the dog) You be a good boy, no chasing...and remember, cats are people too!

    Notes (4)

    • During the Jeopardy! written test, there is music that is very similar to the real Jeopardy! theme music.

    • This episode was videotaped on January 23, 1992.

    • The Jeopardy Dream scene features the actual 1992 Jeopardy set and theme music.

    • David Leisure (Charlie Dietz) crosses over from Empty Nest for the first and final time, although Leisure previously guest starred in season two as a different character then known as Oliver.

    Trivia (3)

    • Nitpick: It seems very odd that the girls would have gotten Rose a dog, especially one as large as Jake, in light of other episodes in which Blanche is totally against dogs being in the house (i.e. in the episode when Rose tries to hide a stray, and another when Sophia takes care of Dreyfuss).

    • In this episode, Dorothy says that her college major was American History. When playing "The Golden Girls Trivia Game" on, the correct answer to the question "What was Dorothy's college major" is World History.

    • Rose's long-departed, yet beloved, dog was named Rusty. She is quite fond of telling the story of Rusty's heroic death after he saved her family from a fire.
