    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Wanda: [The sunglasses] make you look like a more distinguished Cory Hart.
        Oscar: Who's he? Is he important?
        Wanda: Only the Secretary-General of the UN.
        Oscar: I knew that.

        Cory Hart is a Canadian singer whose most popular song was Sunglasses At Night, released from his debut album in 1984. He was never the Secretary-General of the UN, however. At the time that this episode was filmed and shown, Kofi Annan held that post.

    • QUOTES (13)

      • Hank: You know what would be weird? If somebody put a lost lost and found box in a lost and found box.
        Lacey: Good. Now we have something to talk about in the car.

      • Oscar: You're the bottom of the barrel, but I'm desperate.
        Wanda: Well, I'd love to help you, Oscar, but I was just going to staple my tongue. Hmm, staple my tongue, help Oscar. They're both so enjoyable.

      • Oscar (about Emma): I don't know what to get her.
        Wanda: Well, coming to the gas station was a great start. There's motor oil, antifreeze, two-liter bottles of pop ...
        Oscar: Oh, she likes pop.
        Wanda: Don't get her pop.

      • Hank: I stay trim by eating healthy.
        Davis: Oh yeah? What do you snack on?
        Hank: Well, I... just ate a pie. But I got a fast metabolism.

      • Oscar: Notice anything different about me?
        Wanda: Have I seen you in that green ball cap before?

      • Wanda: You don't think the spa's pleasant?
        Emma (sarcastically): Oh, yeah, total strangers touching me! It's more pleasant talking to you... no offence.
        Wanda: None taken.

      • Brent: All right, listen, don't let him talk you into any fancy extras. You don't need a whole bunch of... hang on!
        Lacey: What?
        Brent: Is my bum getting warm?
        Bill: It's the seat warmers!
        Brent: She'll take it!

      • Hank: You guys made a commitment. You gotta try and stick this fake marriage out.
        Lacey: We are not fake-married!
        Hank: Look, every fake relationship has its ups and downs. It's what you do during the down periods that defines your commitment.
        Brent: The fake reverend is right.

      • Hank: Hey, good work, Karen.
        Karen: This was a really good idea you had, Hank. Eating these muffins has really made me feel more energetic... especially 10 minutes after I eat them. Then I kinda crash... so I just eat another one!

      • Davis: Maybe after we eat a donut, we could reward ourselves with muffins.

      • Oscar: I need a woman's advice.
        Hank: I can give you a woman's advice.
        Oscar: I'll go with a woman.
        Hank: That's sexist.

      • Karen: Tomorrow I'll bring in some healthy snacks.
        Davis: How about plain donuts? Baby steps.

      • Davis: You never see anyone with a good yo-yo any more.
        Karen: You always start conversations as though we've been having a conversation.
        Davis: What? I'm just saying, you used to see yo-yos all the time, but now they're disappearing off the face of the earth.
        Karen: Yeah, Davis, they're like the rainforest.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Brent: Hey, look what I found at the gas station. (holds up a pair of sunglasses)
        Lacey: You're gonna keep 'em? Don't you have a Lost & Found?
        Brent: Well, I had one, but I lost it. Isn't that ironic... don't ya think?

        By adding the "don't ya think" onto the end of his last sentence, Brent is alluding to the popular Alanis Morissette song, Ironic (1995), in which the chorus asks the question, "isn't it ironic, don't ya think?"
