Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • This is the second episode where Dad goes crazy when he is deprived of something. The first is "Topped Off," where he goes crazy when Dexter and Dee Dee drink all the coffee.

    • When Dad, pretending to be Mom, suggests that they go to Chubby Cheese's, Dexter is exited to go. However, in the episode, "Chubby Cheese," Dexter totally hates that restaurant. Although, it is possible that between the episodes, Dexter began liking Chubby Cheese's.

    • When Mom says, "Dinner! Oh my goodness! I forgot the roast!" it's supposed to be around dinner time, right? And she said she had to run to the store. This is roast that we're talking about here; doesn't Mom realize how long roast takes to prepare?
      Response: Apparently someones going to have to have a late dinner.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Dad: (after fighting with the squirrel) Hold it right there, mister. Those muffins were made by my wife with tender-loving care, especially for her family and I demand them back, NOW! (the squirrel gives Dad the plate of muffins) Now, scram. (the squirrel runs off) Here kids. Make sure these are kept safe til dinner.
      Mom: (shows up with the groceries) My hero! I saw the whole thing! You saved my muffins! (kisses Dad)
      Dad: Well, I guess I did.

    • Dad: Those rotten kids! I can't wait till they're all grown up. And then, I'll be king again! (starts crying) It's not fair! I wish there was a place I could go and eat muffins forever!


    • Dad: (in the shadows; whispers) Dexter, I'd like to have a little word with you.
      Dexter: Oh, and what would that be?
      Dad: (steps out of shadows) Dexter... I am your father.
      Dexter: No! That is not possible! Oh, no wait, you're right.
      Dad: So join me! Come to the MUFFIN SIDE!!!!! IT IS YOUR DESTINY!!!!!

    • Dad: Freeze or you're grounded!

  • NOTES (1)


    • Dad: So join me! Come to the MUFFIN SIDE! IT IS YOUR DESTINY!

      This is a pun off of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, where Darth Vader attempts to persuade Luke to join him in the Dark Side, stating that "It is your destiny".

    • Dad's muffin dream is quite similar to Homer's dream of the Land of Chocolate in the Simpsons episode "Burns Verkaufen Der Kraftwerk".

    • Dad: Dexter, I am your father.
      Dexter: That's not possible! Oh, no, wait. You're right.
      Darth Vader said this to Luke Skywalker in Star Wars, except he said, "Luke, I am your father." Luke replies by saying, "No, that's not true. That's impossible!"
