Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Brent: You are aware I was the leading guitarist in a band all through high school?

      Brent, Wanda and Hank had a band called "Thunderface" in high school. They revived it in the episode Rock On! (season 2, episode 15).

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Oscar: Why do you suddenly want to learn guitar?
      Brent: You are aware I was the leading guitarist in a band all through high school?
      Oscar: And now you want to learn how to play the thing? You should have thought about that back then, when it could have done some good.

    • (after Davis offers to do a favour for Wanda)
      Lacey: That's nice of you, Davis.
      Davis: Well, it's not me really, it's my horoscope. It said I'd be lucky today if I go in to the city and do a favour for a short person.
      Wanda: Short, cute person... I think it said, but, you know, whatever.

    • Brent: You're going to teach me guitar?
      Toby: Well, I'll do my best, Mister, but it can be pretty hard to learn new stuff later in life.

    • Oscar: When's Brent gonna be finished this stupid banjo lesson?
      Emma: Probably right after his guitar lesson.
      Oscar: I'll be dead by the time I finish this fence!
      Emma: So I have two things to look forward to.

    • Hank: Maybe I should lift some more grass seed, work on my delts.
      Emma: Are they connected to your mouth? Because that's getting a good workout.
      Hank: You got a lot to learn about anatomy.

    • Davis: Hey, Karen, want me to read you your horoscope?
      Karen: Oh, I don't believe in that crap.
      Davis: Makes sense. It says here Capricorns will be very skeptical today.
      Karen: I'm a Virgo.
      Davis: I thought you said you didn't believe in this crap.

    • Lacey: Wouldn't it be terrible if Davis found out who 'Madame Wanza' really is?
      Wanda: I see. So it's extortion, is it? I never thought you'd stoop so low. I'm proud of you.

    • Lacey: Davis, I need to talk to you.
      Davis: Not now; I'm on my way to mow Wanda's lawn.
      Lacey: Wanda's been writing those horoscopes to get you to do things for her
      Davis: Unbelievable... (Lacey nods) accurate these things are. Check it out; it says today not to listen to conspiracy theories by pushy brunettes.
      Lacey: Wanda wrote that!
      Davis: I'm not listening to you. (puts fingers in ears) Lalalalala...

  • NOTES (0)


    • (after Oscar has shown a lack of knowledge of Brent's life and then insulted him)
      Brent: Oh, by the way, the "Father of the Year" Committee called; it's between you and Fred MacMurray.

      Fred MacMurray (Aug. 30, 1908 - Nov. 5, 1991) was an actor; from 1960 to 1972, he played Steve Douglas, the seemingly perfect patriarch, in the ABC/CBS sitcom My Three Sons.

    • Hank: You know, Oscar, I find that if someone kicks sand in your face, you work out and then in a few weeks, you punch him out in front of the girl that the guy who kicked sand in your face stole.

      Hank has verbally described one of the cartoon ads that ran in comic books for decades advertising the Charles Atlas bodybuilding system. In the ads, a 97-pound weakling had sand kicked in his face by a bully who then took the girl. The weakling went home, used the Charles Atlas system to become strong, and then returned to the beach to beat up the bully and reclaim the girl.
