  • Trivia

      This means "Are you deaf?".

    • In the beginning of the episode, Nick's caller ring tone for Karen is the "Wedding March". Later in the episode, it was just a regular ring tone.

    • Brian Jr. drew a picture of a large waterfalls and told Lisa that her mother was going to Brazil. The drawing was most probably depicting the Iguazu Falls of the Iguazu river located on the border of Brazilian state of Paraná and the Argentine province of Misiones. It is vastly larger than North America's Niagara Falls.

    • The combination on the brief case Nick was trying to open was 7-1-2. It was Letitia Darling's birthday.

  • Quotes

    • Lisa: (removes tissue from Nick's face) There, now you're perfect.
      Nick: Nah! I may look perfect but...
      Lisa: Just like the Darlings.

    • Patrick: I'm not running for senate. I've decided. I'm telling my father today.
      Carmelita: And when will you tell you wife?
      Patrick: About the senate?
      Carmelita: No, about us.
      Patrick: Soon. I promise.

    • Brian: I told them that you were an orphan whose parents were killed in a violent bullet train accident in Sweden.
      Brian Jr.: What's a bullet train?
      Brian: That's none of your business.

    • Tripp: Here! (Throws a wad of cash to Nick)
      Nick: What... What's this?
      Tripp: I used to give some cash to your dad in the beginning of every work week.
      Nick: For?
      Tripp: Things come up. Trust me.

    • Norman Exley: Mr. George!
      Nick: Yeah.
      Norman Exley: A lot of times when your dad took the plane, brought along his lady friend.
      Nick: Letitia Darling?
      Norman Exley: Yes sir. I know I'm talking out of school here, but if I was Tripp Darling, I sure would've found that troublesome. Real troublesome.

    • Tripp: Contrary to popular belief, history is not made by great men. It takes more than one man to change the world. It takes more than one generation. It takes a family.
      Patrick: Dad, I don't wanna make history. I just wanna live my life, okay?

    • (as Nick's phone rings)
      Nick: That's Karen.
      Lisa: Of course. Take it. She probably wants you to wash her pet tiger or insure her solid-gold toilet or something very reasonable like that.
      Nick: It could be important.
      Lisa: I said take it. Tell her "Hi!".

    • Nick: (Referring to Tripp) You think he's capable of murder?
      Letitia: We're all capable of everything.

    • Maria: (pocketing $500 from Nick after she catches him taking Tripp's diary) There were quite a few times I walked in on your father getting away with things. He put my daughter Alejandra through college. And med school.

    • Brian Jr.: Daddy, doesn't want me, does he?
      Nick: Hey, Brian listen. Sometimes daddies get confused. But sometimes when a daddy gets around his own daddy, things get less confusing very very quickly.

    • Freddy: You... You're still in love with her.
      Nick: Freddy, it's just a picture in a magazine for women and girls. What's the big freakin' deal?
      Freddy: Fine, you know what, you can keep me out of the picture, Nick. But you can't keep me out of the picture, got it? Karen is mine.

    • Tripp: Who is this unnamed youth?
      Brian: He is an orphan whose parents were killed in a bullet train accident in Sweden.
      Tripp: Could he have taken my journal?
      Nick: Oh no, I don't think so. No.
      Letitia: Why would he take your journal, Tripp?
      Tripp: Perhaps he thought it was filled with arcane secrets and treasure maps. It's that kind of object.

    • Tripp: Why would you take my journal?
      Nick: I took it because I wanted to figure out...
      Karen: What?
      Nick: ...who killed my dad.
      Tripp: You thought it might be me. That's why you stole my journal?
      Nick: Well, I thought that...
      Tripp: What possible reason could I have had to do such a thing? He was my best friend. I don't understand. (walks out of the room)

    • Jeremy: (Answers his phone) Jeremy Darling. Go.
      Natalie: I just took a shower. I'm hot and I'm very very very wet.
      Jeremy: I'm gonna have to get back to you on that.
      Natalie: And what is that supposed to mean?
      Jeremy: Just work on the second verse and give me a call when it's gold. Okay? Bye.

    • Juliet: How was the photo shoot?
      Jeremy: It was a Trip!
      Juliet: Oh yeah.
      Jeremy: Yeah.
      Juliet: Did everybody miss me?
      Jeremy: We did, but it was kind of like you were there. We did, we felt your presence.
      Juliet: Oh, good!

    • Lisa: (referring to Brian Jr.) Did you get hold of his mom? Or is he spending the night? Maybe staying forever? Are we gone adopt him, perhaps?

    • Tripp: We have this photo shoot happening here tomorrow. We're re-branding the family as fresh, hip, for Patrick's campaign.

    • Letitia: You know he has issues that will come out...
      Tripp: Issues? Our married son has affairs with transsexuals and you stand there calling them issues?
