  • Sophia: You call that wrestling, you pansy? If you can't take a crotch slam like a man then get out of the business!

Trivia (1)

  • Stan is staying with Dorothy while recovering from a major heart surgery. However, during the scene where he is wearing Dorothy's nightgown and eating cheesecake with the girls, his chest is exposed and there is no scar. Heart surgery like the one Stan underwent would leave a very big scar down the middle of his chest. In addition, someone who had heart surgery is supposed to be careful about what they eat, he certainly should not be indulging in cheesecake.
