Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In earlier scenes Timmy is seen with a rather long neck, but when Marie discovers his head in the freezer in the closing segment, the neck is quite short to allow the head to fit in.

    • This episode's lunch special is ham, beans, cole slaw, carn bread, and what looks like stuffing.

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Timmy: (to Frank and Marie about leaving Robert at a gas station) Remember? A great family vacation, going to see the Grand Canyon. Frank stops for gas and you all leave when Robert's still in the men's room?
      Frank: How would you know? You weren't there.
      Ray: We got a real battle of wits going on here.

    • Marie: Come on, honey. You can practice on me, dear. Give me one of your routines.
      Robert: What?
      Marie: One of your traffic things. Come on! Let's just say I'm a crazy driver, (turns her attention on Frank) Shut up, Frank.

    • Robert: I just got my first student evaluations today.
      Marie: Yeah? What did they say dear?
      Robert: Oh, you want to know what they said? Okay, ma, here's what they said. (Robert opens up his binder and flips through a few pages) "This class is a sure cure for insomnia. Next time, just, please, take away my license."

    • Ray: You were neglected. Try being smothered.
      Robert: I used to pray for smothered.
      Ray: You want smothered? How about at school when Mom became cafeteria monitor to make sure I ate all my food and kept my sweater on and sat with her?!

    • Timmy: (to Frank) Remind me never to drive with you, ya crazy old bastard!

    • Ray: Okay, Robert, the thing I said about lighten up—this is a little too light.

    • Frank: (reading student evaluations) 'After 10 minutes, I wanted to take the officer's gun... and end my misery'.

    • (Robert is talking through his dummy, Traffic Cop Timmy)
      Timmy: Let's see. Marie, is it? What's the first thing you do in your car before you drive off.
      Marie: Well, you check your rear-view mirrors.
      Timmy: Good.
      Marie: And, make sure you're wearing your seatbelt.
      Timmy: Anything else?
      Marie: Um, no. That's it.
      Timmy: That's it? (turns to Robert) She thinks that's it. (turns back to Marie) How about making sure your firstborn son is in the backseat before driving off from a gas station in New Mexico!
      Marie: Robby, that was so long ago!
      Robert: Hey, I'm not the one who cares. (looks at Timmy)
      Debra: Uh-oh.

    • Debra: (to Robert about him teaching traffic school) All you just need is some practice.
      Robert: It's not the kind of thing you can practice. It's all about relating to people.
      Frank: You're a dead man.

    • Robert: How about when you used to go to school and mom would follow you there!
      Ray: What? That was mom?! (Robert nods) Oh, my God! The crazy tree lady! I used to have nightmares about her!
      Robert: When was the last time you had one?
      Ray: Last week!
