    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (3)

      • This episode's "Where's Lunch?" is a Tamale with guacamole, tortilla chips, okra, 2 carne asadas, refried beans, and Spanish rice.

      • When Ray is zipping up his pants after Debra lets her parents in the front door, you can see the boom mike directly above Lois' head.

      • When Ray sneaks into the room he is carrying his blazer and shoes in his hands. After Debra cuts on the light and walks over to the dresser the camera pans back to Ray and he is empty handed for the rest of the scene.

        If you look behind Ray once the camera cuts back to him, his coat is now on the armchair. Also, if you listen closely, while Debra is talking while the camera is on her at the dresser you can hear the shoes hit floor as if they're being set down.

    • QUOTES (15)

      • Frank: I don't appreciate the French. As people. They're annoying. Truly.

      • Frank: How much is the food?
        Waiter: $320.
        Frank: Holy crap!
        Lois: You're not allowed to look at the prices. Our treat.
        Frank: Warren! Wake up! This guy has both of his hands in your pocket.

      • Debra: I always thought Vietnam was a wonderful place! I would love to visit it.
        Ray: Or you can rent Apocalypse Now.

      • (talking about waiters)
        Robert: They give me the willies. Always putting you on the spot, you know? It's like...authority figures.
        Ray: Authority figures? You're a police sergeant, okay? You outrank the waiter.

      • (talking about the restaurant that they're at)
        Robert: Isn't this one of those joints with those dressed-up waiters?
        Ray: Yeah. Yeah, what's wrong with dressed up waiters?
        Robert: They give me the willies.

      • Ray: Look, you have to see your in-laws, alright? They're gonna be across the street. What, are you gonna hide?
        Frank: I got a chair now, up in the attic.

      • Frank: Here. (hands him a coupon) Jell-o for the kids, save 30 cents.
        Ray: Oh, thanks, Dad, now I can buy that boat.

      • (Ray walks into Marie's house)
        Ray: Hi.
        Frank: Hello, Ray.
        Marie: Hi.
        Ray: Hey.
        Marie: You hungry?
        Ray: No, no, I just ate.
        Marie: (goes up to Ray and sniffs him No, don't lie to me, sit down.

      • (talking about Ally being happy thinking about candy)
        Ray: Candy. Huh, you that happy? When's the last time you daydreamed about candy? You can't do that as an adult. You try but you don't get far. Candy, candy, oh cavities. Cavities. Oh, no money. Who am I? Why am I here? What am I doing? Am I gay? See? Candy, candy doesn't work.

      • Marie: There's so much silverware on the table. What's all this silverware for?
        Gerard: For you to eat with.

      • Debra: (to Ray) What's with your parents? It's like it's the first time they've worn shoes!

      • Frank: How much is this STOMP?
        Warren: $40.00
        Frank: For ten bucks, I'll bang on my garbage cans until your ears bleed.

      • Lois: We're going to Vietnam.
        Frank: Vietnam? What? You owe Charlie some payback?

      • Lois: So, how are things going with you, Robert?
        Robert: Well, you know, one day you're rescuing a puppy, the next you're fishing a skull out of a toilet.

      • Ray: These people shouldn't be at the same table together. They shouldn't be in the same state!
