      • Andy: (to Amanda) You know, I took Delia camping once. We ended up at the Howard Johnson's. Not much of a view, but the food was better.

        Harold: Claim Jumper's prime rib with Madeira sauce. Your mother and I are dining out for a change.

      • Will: (To Ephram) He (the new piano teacher) may even help you with that Liszt you got your eye on.
        Franz Liszt (1811-1886) was a Hungarian composer and piano virtuoso known for his often fiery style of composition and performance.

      • Harold: (To Rose) This isn't Washington! Our local governance is supposed to have some standards here.... You're exercising nepotism here. You should be unleashing the Furies!
        Harold is referring to corrupt politics that frequently occur in Washington, D.C. In classical mythology, the Furies are hideous female monsters who relentlessly pursued evildoers.

      • Andy: (To Jake) So, what are you L.A. guys into these days? Is it, like, Citrus vodka? Cosmos?
        Citrus vodka is a citrus-flavored vodka made with the addition of lemon and other citrus fruits. A Cosmos is an alcoholic beverage composed of light rum, lime juice, superfine sugar, and crushed ice.

      • Andy: (To Amanda) Julia and I used to play Desert Island Discs. She always picked Elton John. I remember watching Diana's funeral with her. Boy, did she ever cry!
        The idea behind Desert Island Discs is that you must choose the ten discs that you would take with you if you were to be stranded on a desert island (with a CD player and electricity). Elton John is a contemporary British composer and pianist of pop music. He accompanied himself on the piano as he sang at Princess Diana's funeral in 1997.

      • Ephram: (To Will) Look, Will, you're good, but you're not Beethoven!
        Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) was a German composer who, in spite of beginning to grow deaf midway through his career, continued to compose great works.

      • Ephram: (To Will) For the, ah, for the Bach, I was thinking of the Well-Tempered Clavier ... or the Contrapunctus.
        Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) was a German composer and organist of the late baroque period. One of the greatest composers in history, he wrote Well-Tempered Clavier and Contrapunctus.

      • Ephram: (To Amy) Everybody else in going to be playing Bartók, Chopin, and Schubert. Those guys don't exactly have weak spots; this does.
        Béla Bartók (1881-1945) was a Hungarian pianist and composer. Frédéric François Chopin (1810-1849) was a Polish-born French composer and pianist of the romantic era. Franz Peter Schubert (1797-1828) was an Austrian composer of symphonies, chamber music, and more than 600 compositions for voice and piano.

      • Ephram: (To Will) Ah, roots in Brahms, bass rhythm in Bill Evans... (Joplin) definitely in the bridge.
        Johannes Brahms was a German romantic composer of the nineteenth century. Pianist and composer Bill Evans (1929-1980) was one of the most important and influential musicians in jazz history. Scott Joplin was an American ragtime pianist and composer of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

      • Amanda: (To Andy) We danced the Spandau Ballet at our wedding. That was (pause) memorable.
        Spandau Ballet was a 1980s British band whose music was described as upbeat, positive, good sound, great to sing along with, great to dance by, and good to just kick back and listen to.

      • Amanda: (To Andy) It's not like I was expecting him to get up and do Fiddler on the Roof.
        Fiddler on the Roof is a stage musical and movie based on the stories of Sholom Aleichem. The story's protagonist is Tevye the Milkman, a Jewish peasant in pre-Revolutionary Russia, coping with day-to-day problems, his Jewish traditions, his family (wife and daughters), and state-sanctioned pogroms.
