Trivia (1)

  • While cooking dinner, Ralph advises Norton to raise the temperature on the oven: "It'll cook in TWICE the time." Later, he tells Norton to cook the whole box of rice with the justification "If it's too much, I won't eat it." Given the incongruity of this statement (Since when would Ralph decline from eating something?), Gleason must've meant to say something along the lines of "If it's too much, I'll eat it."
