    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Woody is the same one who tied a string to his finger to remember to visit Cliff in the hospital, and forgot what the string is for. I don't think forgetting to mention knowing someone should be considered a mistake, but a character trait.

      • Norm mentions that Robert Urich passed by in his car but Woody fails to say that he knows Robert Urich from when he worked on Spenser For Hire. This is the basis for the plot to next season's episode 134 Woody For Hire.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Sam: That's it. We have always done things your way. I have bent over backwards to make you happy. I bought the ring you wanted. The china you wanted. The crystal you wanted. I even agreed to have duvet over on my bed. I don't know what a duvet is or what it's supposed to cover. When are we going to do something that I want to do?
        Diane: May I remind you we're going to Disney World for our honeymoon.
        Sam: Big deal. Who isn't?

      • Diane: Those people were bereft of soul. They had no intention of embracing that house. They're only desire was to live there.
        Sam: They wanted to live in the house they just bought?! My God they must have been raised by wolves.

      • Woody: Hey Mr. Peterson. How's life?
        Norm: Well the plot's okay but it kind of falls apart at the end.

      • Diane: You have the sensitivity of a dung beetle.

      • Sam: I used to love the smell of sawdust. I wonder where I can get some of that.

      • Cliff: That's pathetic! You'll never catch a woman of mind leading me by the nose.
        Carla: No, but you might catch her sunning herself on a rock.

      • Sam: I'm not ready to own a home. You got to work up to that.
        Norm: Sammy's right. It's a big responsibility. You got lawns to mow. You got plumbing to to fix. Gutters to clean. then every couple of years you've got to paint the entire thing from top to bottom. Honestly I don't know where Vera gets the energy.
        Frasier: Norm, you should be ashamed of yourself.
        Norm: Yeah, I guess I should, shouldn't I? Well thank God I'm not.

      • Diane: Sam, great news. I found a house.
        Sam: Hey. Turn it in maybe you'll get a reward.
