    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Dan comes home and Mike is there eating cereal, the bowl has three round balls of cereal in it. Mike eats some, leaving only one ball of cereal in the bowl. The camera switches to Dan, then back to Mike and there are at least four balls of cereal in the bowl. After only one spoon, and one camera change, there is only one ball left in the bowl. Mike stands up, and there are more balls in the bowl.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • (at the televised debate)
        Alan: And with all due respect, Anita Vargas, running City Hall is a little more difficult than running an appliance store.
        Dan: And more difficult than being a bartender. It's a lot harder to be mayor than it is to be a bartender. (uncomfortable silence) But I'd do it though, I mean, I don't mind. I'm really into it. (pause) Is it somebody else's turn now?

      • Claire: Mike and I? Don't worry about it. I'm the one who should be sorry.
        Brianna: Why?
        Claire: Oh, I probably shouldn't say this, but I think when Mike and I broke up, Dan thought he and I were going to get back together.
        Brianna: I didn't get that sense.
        Claire: Didn't you though? I mean... didn't you?
        Brianna: No.

      • Moderator: Turning to the Deputy Mayor, what would an Alan Duffy administration accomplish?
        Alan: I think the better question would be: what wouldn't it accomplish?
        Moderator: I'm not sure it's a better question.

      • Jeff: Dan's doing well.
        Claire: Dan's not doing well, Alan's doing poorly.
        Jeff: Someone's doing worse than Dan; that's surprising.

      • Jeff: Dan, this is Mr. Swifty, the owner of Swifty Copy.
        Dan: Ha, good one.
        Mr. Swifty: Ralph Swifty, nice to meet you.
        Dan: Oh, Swifty, that's where the name comes from.
        Mr. Swifty: Why else would it be called "Swifty Copy"?
        Dan: 'Cause you guys are quick?
        Mr. Swifty: Oh, it works both ways.

      • Alan: You can't quit.
        Claire: Your campaign is already done. You just admitted to covering up thousands in Bud's expenses.
        Alan: There's an explanation. ...I didn't mean to tell you that.
        Claire: My bad for hearing.

      • Dan: You won't admit that you're quitting because you were bested by my superior campaigning skills.
        Claire: No. I'm quitting because Alan told me he's covering up thousands of dollars of illegal expenses.
        Dan: Okay, that trumps my superior campaigning thing.

      • Mr. Swifty: One thing I've learned over the years of running Swifty: you can copy a lot of things, Jeff, but you can't copy people.
        Jeff: I don't know what that means, Mr. Swifty, but thank you.
