  • Trivia

    • In this episode we find out Roxie died in 1982 when her friend choked her to death in order to take credit for Roxie's invention. We also find out that she was a dancer and that she invented leg warmers.

    • Featured Deaths:
      - Woman catches fire (soul taken by Daisy)
      - A flashback of Roxy's Death

    • Leg warmers predate Roxie's death by at least ten years. They were popular on college campuses in the mid- to late-1970s. She could not have originated them.

  • Quotes

    • (Roxy gives everyone a balloon)
      George: What's the occasion?
      Daisy: I'm guessing she had sex with a carnie.
      Roxy: Why do I need to have an occasion to spread the love?
      Mason: Because you are an ornery bitch and you eat puppy dogs for breakfast.

    • Mary Kate: Is this a slum?
      Daisy: Suburbs.
      Mary Kate: Oh well, same thing.

    • Delores: You know what they say about people who have idle hands.
      George (V/O): They should strangle the person who asked them to collate?

    • Mary Kate: You are f_cking with the wrong ghost, my little friend!

    • Mary Kate (about Michael): Oh, little dipshit. Wet his bed 'till he was seven.
      Daisy (to Michael): She says she misses you very much, too.

    • Daisy (looking for Georgia): Georgia! Come out, come out, whereever you are!
      Georgia (thinking): It's times like these I wish reapers had some kind of super power, you know, like I could fly, or disappear or... paralyse someones vocal chords

    • Georgia: How much money?
      Daisy: Oodles! Do you know how many zeroes there are in oodles?

    • Delores: I knitted you a little gift.
      Georgia: Er, thanks! A... baby... hat?
      Delores: No, silly, it's a pencilsharpenercosy! And that's the Chinese symbol for prosperity.
      Georgia: That's so sweet, Delores! I could really use one of those.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Roxie: Is it too early for souvlaki?

      Souvlaki is a greek dish. So why would Roxie want greek food in a german waffle house?

    • Roxie's past as a dancer is a clear reference to Jasmine Guy's early years. She appeared in several episodes of NBC's drama show Fame, where she danced during the first season.
