  • NOTES (5)


    • Tracy: I'm ridiculous. I'm black. I may even be ugly. But thank God I'm he-ah, I'm he-ah, and nothing but death can keep me from it.

      Tracy is parodying two memorable quotes from the 1985 film The Color Purple. The main character, Celie, is a young African American woman who faces problems of poverty, racism and sexism in the early 1900s.

    • Liz tells Frank the awful name she was called, "rhymes with [his] favorite Todd Rundgren album," referring to Rundgren's 1970 album Runt.
