    • Maggie: You went through my room? Have you ever heard of privacy? How would you like it if I went through your stuff? Fran: Don't bother, he locks everything.

    • Maxwell: In any event, Margaret still isn't home. Fran: Well, you know, it was a picnic, these things have to go at their own flow. You have to eat, and then my mother always says you have to wait at least an hour before you do strenuous physical activity... (death stare from Maxwell) Fran: (quickly) ...like Frisbee!

    • (Everyone is upset that Yetta gave Maggie the advice of 'Go for it' pertaining to being with her boyfriend. However, Fran & Niles have just overheard her and Grace have an exchange of those words) Fran: 'Go for it'? I thought you told that to Maggie! Yetta: That's not Maggie? Fran: No; that's Grace. Yetta: Now I'm confused. Fran: (frustrated) Grace is the little one, Schmooey's the boy, and the tall one is Maggie. Yetta: Hot Pants? Fran: Yeah! Yetta: Tell her to go for it? What am I, senile?!?! Your husband would throw me outta the house!

    • Fran: That's what you call a fight? 'I hate you, who cares'? In my house, a fight isn't over till the fat lady grabs the ginsu and says, "Here, cut my heart out." Niles: We don't say cross words in my family. We just die very early from colon disorders.

    • Fran: (To Yetta) What are you thinking?! This is the Sheffield's house! No one ever has sex here!

    Notes (2)

    • The ending shows Fran, Yetta and Sylvia watching tv, saying how they love that "Mike Myers coffee talk thing". This is a sketch on Saturday Night Live, where Madonna and Roseanne guest starred. Sylvia is dressed very similar to Madonna's character and Yetta is a bit similar to Roseanne's character.

    • The actor that appeared briefly portraying Maggie's boyfriend is Barry Watson. He was not credited for his less-than-10-seconds appearance with no lines.

    Trivia (1)

    • In this episode, Fran reminds Yetta that her grandfather got carried away by the Cossacks, but in "Yetta's Letters," Yetta says she didn't even meet Fran's grandfather until she emigrated to the US.

    Allusions (2)

    • Fran: Me? The Pips couldn't back you up! This is a reference to Gladys Knight and the Pips, a soul/R&B musical group best known for their hits, "Midnight Train to Georgia" and "I Heard It Through the Grapevine".

    • Maxwell: Well, you know Miss Fine... sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't. This is an allusion to the famous jingle the Hershey company used to advertise it's Almond Joy and Mounds chocolate bars.
