  • QUOTES (6)

    • Delivery Man: Pizza Barge! One super Sicilian, that's me. Here's your pizza. Sorry we couldn't leave it by the tree. It's against company policy.
      Raquel: I don't understand.
      Delivery Man: Well the last time we left one by a tree, a squirrel died.
      Raquel: No, I mean I didn't order a pizza and I refuse to pay for it.
      Delivery Man: Lady, it's already paid for, house account.
      Raquel: (Grabbing pizza box) Oh, well in that case...
      Delivery Man: (Holding out hand) What about my tip?
      (Raquel grabs a dime out of her pocket and puts it in the delivery man's hand.)
      Raquel: Here is this enough?
      Delivery Man: Oh, sure. In some states I can still make a phone call!
      (Raquel shuts door and walks to couch)
      Raquel: (Sarcastic mimic) In some states I can still make a phone call.

    • Burglar: It must be one of those talking dolls.
      Alf: Oh yeah, ever have a talking doll rip out your voice box?

    • Raquel: (talking in the phone) Trevor, I'm scared. Something strange has been happening. And even a guy came to deliver a pizza.

      Raquel: Yes.
      Trevor: Oh I'm so going over there!

    • Raquel: Trevor. Can't you stay here and watch the game? I don't want to be alone.

  • NOTES (3)

    • From this episode on, the name of every episode is also the name of a well-known song.

    • Raquel calling Trevor about the strange things happening at the Tanners' is reminiscent of the Bewitched sub-theme, where Gladys Kravitz tells Abner about strange things regarding Samantha.

    • This was the second episode to air, but the fourth to be filmed. It is also the fourth episode on the season one DVD.
