Season 1 Episode 17

Diane's Perfect Date

Aired Thursday 9:00 PM Feb 10, 1983 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • Nitpick: When Diane returns from the bathroom after fixing her hair, it has been transformed from a frizzy, disheveled mess from riding a motorocycle, to a perfectly coifed, straight 'do. Her make-up has also been redone. Since she was only gone about 30 seconds, it seems highly unlikely that she would have had time to get her hair and make-up so completely perfect in such little time.

  • Quotes

    • Diane: I've been hungry for Italian all day. What do you say about an Italian restaurant?
      Andy-Andy: Anywhere but Theomilano's. That's bad memories for me. I killed a waitress there.
      Sam: (to a horrified Diane) We'll double [date].

    • Sam: At least my dates don't count the number of letters in a sentence.
      Diane: Your dates can't form sentences.

    • Andy: What if she doesn't like me?
      Sam: It's okay, she doesn't like anybody.
