  • Trivia

    • When Louise extends her formal invitation to Archie, she says that "George said he wasn't going to touch solid food" until Archie had been invited.

      In fact, George didn't say anything. Louise told George that she was going to invite Archie and that he would be "eating your dinner through a straw" if he said no.
