    • Francine: There's a dog doing a handstand on the label. Stan, we can't afford this.

    • Roger: Stan, remember the first rule of any wedding is that the bride is always beautiful. The second rule you can read on my website. You have to be eighteen to log on. I have some sexy barnyard stuff on there that is NOT for everyone; I could get in a lot of trouble. If you do decide to check it out you need to clear your history right away. You may need to uninstall your browser. I'm telling you scrub that thing clean. If you think you're being too cautious, you're not. They will take us both to jail.

    • Roger: Jeannie Gold, wedding planner. This is my emergency wedding kit; everything you need for last minute snaffoos. Needle and thread, bandaids for sore heels, fake hymens for those not so well-behaved middle eastern brides. These beauties are packed full of ox blood. Trust me, that bedroom will look like the set of a Wes Craven movie the next morning.

    • Roger: Stan, these are my sons, Alex and Ron. They're in Columbia Film School.
      Stan: How is that possible?
      Roger: I know. I look too young to have kids in college.
      Stan: No, that you have children when your persona is completely fabricated...
      Roger: We are the music makers. We are the dreamers of dreams.
      Stan: That is an unsatisfying answer.

  • Allusions

    • The end of the episode, showing Roger trailing Steve and Hayley into the city, is a reference to the final scene in the 1991 movie The Silence of the Lambs where Doctor Hannibal Lecter follows his "old friend" Chilton. Roger is wearing the same suit, hat, and wig as Lecter's.

    • Roger: We are the music makers, we are the dreamers of dreams.

      This is the opening line of Arthur O'Shaughnessy's poem "Ode", probably most recognizable from being quoted in the movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
