    • Hope: Don't worry. I know you're gonna do great. Josh: (nervously) Thanks, so are you. Hope: (awkward pause) I'm... going to go for laundry. Josh: (stammering) I know... I know... and you're gonna knock that outta the park.

    • Marty: (reading Josh's new script) I love that sentence I just read... 'Mike, late-twenties, picks up his mail.' How do you come up with that stuff?

    • Mickey: Numbnuts was about a group of people in a mental institution. Saul: Uh huh... and you thought by making them sane and moving them to a beach house on the Jersey shore that that was... that was going to fool me?

    • Astrid: Are you asking me to fill in for you? Oh... I'd love to, but why me? Jesus: Well, I profiled every tenant and you're the most qualified. You're personable, you're efficient, and... you have no job.

    • Butt Pats Both Saul and Marty pat Josh on the butt before his big meeting and he doesn't like it. This is another reference to a former TV sitcom, in this case, the Friends episode where Chandler's boss keeps patting him on the butt, much to Chandler's dislike.

    • Housemates The fictional hit series that Saul believes was stolen from him by his ex-partner, Housemates appears to be a hybrid of four real TV shows - Full House (190 episodes), Going Places (a 1990, three-episode, ensemble, shoreside sitcom) and The Sopranos and House (two big TV hits set in New Jersey).
