  • To sum up this episode in as many words as possible, I have to say this is really crazy and out of character for the series, but still works (especially if you are a fan of Midnight Cowboy).

  • Quotes (5)

    • Urbane intellectual: Why don't you go visit the Statue of Liberty like the rest of the tourists? Redneck: Good God man, I've been trying to avoid the long stare of that cold bitch's metal eyes all day.

    • Prostitute: Hey baby, want a handjob? Rich man: Hand... job? I've never had a job before. I want to work, let me work!

    • Helpful man: You think you're too fat for me to carry, don't you? Heck, you're a little wide in the hips, but that's God's gift when you're givin' birth.

    • Urbane intellectual: What's wrong with mineral water? Redneck: Nothin', if you're a rockman, who lives in the molten lava depths of the earth, only to occasionally ascend to try to dwell among us decent Americans.

    • Prostitute: I will not suck a double-head dildo on a hovercraft. Manager: That's insane. Prostitute: I know, that's why I won't do it!
