    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Ally is described in this episode (and several other episodes this season) as being seven years old. But since she was five in the first season, she's actually supposed to be nine at this point in the show. Same goes with the ninth season: She was said to be 12 when she was really supposed to be 14.

      • At the beginning of the scene where the three Barone kids are singing along to the Hackidu song with Robert on the couch, the scene opens with a picture of the house from the outside, and it is light and not raining at all. Then, when Ray comes in minutes later, it is suddenly dark and pouring rain.

    • QUOTES (9)

      • Frank: (To Ray) I'm sorry I ruined your cards already. It's the one thing I did wrong.
        Robert: The one thing? How about when I was ten years old and you backed your car over my big toe?
        Frank: Doesn't ring a bell.

      • Marie: Frank, I'm not gonna tell you again. Go clean your whiskers out of the sink.
        Frank: After you.

      • Russell: Amy's a supporter.
        Ray: Yes, I know.
        Russell: She's the one who said I should open a comic book store when the rest of the family was saying 'Up your medication.'

      • Russell: You should've dated Amy.
        Ray: Don't think I haven't thought of that.

      • Robert: (when Ray makes a comment about "Debra's boyfriend Mr. Parker") Boyfriend, huh? Well, I guess that explains why the kids are all blonde.
        Debra: And smart.

      • Ally: Daddy, did you get my Scramisaur back?
        Ray: Well, here's the thing honey. As it turns out, Mommy's hero Mr. Parker is a big fat stinking—
        Debra: Ray!

      • Robert: Well, you gotta hand it to little Ally, Ray. She didn't cry. She just looked so...betrayed.

      • Robert: Easy, kids. Let's be careful--Uncle Robert has a boo-boo on his upper thigh.
        Michael: Daddy says it's your hiney!

      • Ray: Honey, you shouldn't let people tell you things are valuable, like pieces of paper with pictures on them.
        Ally: You mean like money?

    • NOTES (2)

      • The recurring role of Bill Parker is played in this and other episodes by Patricia Heaton's real-life husband, David Hunt.

      • After this episode aired, Paul Reubens was arrested on child pornography charges. As a result, Ray Romano demanded that he be dropped from the show's cast. The character of Amy's brother would return, but with Chris Elliot playing him and his name changed from Russell to Peter.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Amy's brother Russell, played by Paul Reubens (aka PeeWee Herman), tells Raymond that Robert is "too uptight and that he should learn to love himself, and there's nothing wrong in loving yourself." This is an inside joke referring to Paul's arrest for "loving himself" in a adult theater in Florida in 1991.

      • The entire episode's premise is a nod to the Pokémon collectible card game craze.
