    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Oscar: You're wasting your time. The Riders haven't been any good since the old days. Joe '747' Adams, 'Polecat' Poley, ...Molly McGee. She was as tough as nails.
        Hank: Molly McGee was a guy.
        Oscar: I don't think so! First woman to play in the CFL. Look it up!
        Brent: What, dementia?
        Oscar: Joe Dementia played baseball, you jackass!

        Molly McGee, was, in fact, a man. He played for both the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Ottawa Rough Riders, and was a player for Saskatchewan when it was involved in the 1976 Grey Cup.
        Joe '747' Adams played in the early '80s.
        Bob 'Polecat' Poley played for the Roughriders from 1978 - 1984.

      • Lacey: So how's it goin' on the ol' griddle?
        Brent: Gridiron.
        Lacey: Right.
        Brent: Well, you'll be happy to know the Argos are winning.
        Lacey:Oh, I'm cheering for the Riders. Been a fan of theirs ever since they moved the team from Ottawa.

        Brent comments that Lacey will be happy that the Argos are winning; Lacey is from Toronto, home of the Toronto Argonauts.

        Lacey comments that she's been a fan since the team moved from Ottawa; the Saskatchewan Roughriders were never based in Ottawa. They began as the Regina Rugby Club in 1910, and in 1924 changed their name to the Roughriders. Ottawa had a team called the Rough Riders, which folded in 1996, but the two teams were always separate.

      • Oscar: You know who I always think is dead is that guy that played Fish on Barney Miller... what was his name?
        Emma: He is dead.
        Oscar: Get the hell out of here!
        Karen: No, he's not dead!

        The actor Oscar is talking about is Abe Vigoda, who, at the time of the airing of this episode, is alive.

    • QUOTES (9)

      • Wanda: How come [Karen] gets a CD and I don't? I like music.
        Davis: You want me to make you a CD? (leaning forward) Are you ready for it? (leaning even further forward) Are you ready for a 'Davis Disc'?
        Wanda: I'm ready for you to back up a bit.
        Davis: And so it begins.

      • Lacey: Whoa, somebody wimped out on the pact!
        Hank: No, no, no, I painted my face green, see?
        Lacey: Yes. You did. And so did I, because we are real fans. Unlike Brent.
        Brent: I'm a fan! Look, that spearmint gum, green. These chips I'm eating got flecks of green stuff all over them. The washer fluid ... all right, that's blue, but if I put some lemon juice in there, green.
        Lacey: You use that lame excuse on St. Patrick's day too.

      • Karen: Mrs. Carmichael? It's Officer Karen Pelly.
        Mrs. Carmichael: I didn't know the watch was his... I can't see well.
        Karen: No, I'm here to read to you.

      • Emma: I brought you some leftovers from the Seniors' Home.
        Oscar: That place gives me the creeps. Bunch of old people sitting around, not doing anything, watching TV.

      • Davis: So how'd you like the CD?
        Wanda: Fantastic, blew my mind, no need to make another!
        Davis: Which was your favourite song?
        Wanda: Um... song two. I liked how it came right after the first one there, like, right after, and sort of slid into song three. Did not see that coming!

      • Brent: Dressing up doesn't make you a better fan! Until last week, Lacey thought the players went into a cuddle before each play. And Hank only wants to wear that green face paint for a month so he doesn't have to shower.

      • Wanda: Ta-da! (pulls a CD out from behind her back)
        Davis: Already? You didn't even ask me any questions.
        Wanda: Oh, I've been silently studying you for a long time. This CD has been years in the making.
        (cut to: Wanda at home in front of her computer)
        Wanda: Shuffle, burn, done!

      • Lacey: What are you supposed to be?
        Hank: I think he's the Jolly Green Giant.
        Brent: No, no, I'm 'Saska-Man'... it's a character I invented. I'm like you guys... go 'Riders!
        Hank: Are you mocking us?
        Brent: No, I'm not mocking you; I'm one of you.
        Lacey: No, you aren't. Are there mirrors on your planet?

      • Fitzy: Davis says you're good at mixing CDs; can you mix me one?
        Wanda: Oh, I don't know if I'd use the word 'artist'.
        Fitzy: I didn't say 'artist'.
