  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (13)

    • Grace: Where's that waiter? I'm so hungry. I knew I shouldn't have given my Powerbar to that homeless woman. I tried to get it back, but her kid was just grippin' it too tightly.

    • Grace: Oh, I'm so hungry, I am this close to actually getting up and pouring myself a glass of juice. Karen: Hey, hey, hey, don't talk crazy. I'm starving too, but we're not gonna feed ourselves like a fat family on a camping trip. And, when you pour your own glass of juice, you are taking a job away from someone who came to this country in a crate or an inner tube.

    • Jack: I don't know what's happened to the work ethic in this country. Grace: Don't you have a job to be at? Jack: I promised myself I wouldn't repeat outfits. So, until I go shopping again, I'm not going back.

    • Grace: Karen, the most incredible thing just happened! Karen: You found something in this living room worth more than 20 bucks?

    • Grace: How's it going? Will: Vince's mother is still riding me about the toe. I don't even think it was broken. Half the foot was bunion. The mall paramedics almost threw up when they saw it.

    Notes (3)

    • Vince's Parents, Robert Costanzo (Paul) and Lee Garlington (Annette) both appeared in the sitcom Friends in the episode "The One With The Boobies," Constanzo played the role of Joey Tribbianni, Sr. and Garlinton played the mistress.

    • This episode originally aired as a one hour episode, though syndication will usually air them in two half hour episodes. NBC counts this as one episode, as they will with any one hour or "super-sized" episodes.

    • The episode was originally known as "Everybody Loves Vince."

    Trivia (2)

    • We finally learn that Vince's last name is D'Angelo.

    • Listen carefully when the turkey is brought in and placed on the table. Megan Mullally can be heard saying "This scene is so long!" During the cast's appearance on the Ellen Degeneres show in November (which was taped the same day as this episode), Mullally mentioned that she intentionally said this line during every take.

    Allusions (5)

    • Jack: Mingle me this... This is a reference to the line the Riddler would use ("Riddle me this...") from the Batman series in comic books, television and movies.

    • Jack: It's like a lesbian Judy Blume book...are you there, God? It's me, Marge. This is a reference to the coming-of-age book Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret.

    • Jack: Oh, St. Mel's, my favorite saint. I love the way he used to boss around Alice. This is a reference to the tv show Alice, starring Linda Lavin as a waitress who worked at Mel's Diner. It was based on the movie Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore.

    • Jack: (to Will) Wildred Pierce! This is an allusion to the Joan Crawford movie Mildred Pierce.

    • Title: Queens for a Day Obviously the title refers to the main characters going to Queens in NY, but it's also a play on words of the famous radio and TV show from the 40s & 50s, Queen for a Day, hosted by Jack Bailey, where various 'ordinary' people (usually women) would have the chance to be a Cinderella-type character and have some kind of dream come true.
