Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • How could Simon have pictures of every event that has happened in 7th Heaven history- most events (there has never even been a camera in 7th Heaven) were not photographed. And a few clips were of events that Simon would never have even known about---such as details about Mary's life in New York, etc.

    • NITPICK: They never mentioned Lucy's friend that died in the car accident, I know that it was based on a true story, but it was a part of 7th Heaven History.

    • Nitpick: Why didn't they put too much information in about Eric's Dad, and Ruth, or Charles and Ginger, or Aunt Julie and family or even George? Aren't they part of the family too?

    • NITPICK: Why didn't Simon mention Shana as one of Matt's girlfriends? Shana was once part of the *opening credits* and their relationship was long.

    • NITPICK: Other things Simon didn't mention: Eric's surgery, Eric's heart attack, Eric leaving the church, winning a car, John Hamilton and Matt moving in together, him asking Cecilia to have sex... these were all very memorable events.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Simon: (about Lucy) She went out with all three of the Palmer brothers.

    • Simon: (about Ruthie) She's going to be the hardest to leave and the hardest to hang onto, because she's Ruthie, and she's 13, and she's got a boyfriend. And while she understands that I want to leave the rest of the family, she doesn't understand how I can leave her, but I don't think she'll hold it against me. She won't have time to hold it against me. She's emerging from childhood to adulthood full speed ahead, with thoughtful intelligence, a great sense of humor, and high self esteem. I'd like to think I had something to do with how great she's turned out so far, and I hope to remain a positive influence in her life, but here's the thing: I know she feels my pain. We're that close. As hard as it is, I really do think it's best to put a little distance between us right now, because I would never forgive myself if I put any rain on Ruthie's parade. And truthfully, I know she will be just fine without me.
