  • Enjoyable.

    7.5
    Anytime there is a poker involved on a sitcom you know you can expect hijinx to ensue, and the fact that is revolved around Ray and Frank, the two best male characters on the show, all while featuring Seinfeld veterans Len Lesser (Uncle Leo) and Victor Raider-Wexler (Dr. Wexler) made this have the pieces for a great episode.



    The plot was funny, moved quickly, and the jokes were funny for the most part. Robert and Debra's roles were minimized, which can only be viewed as a good thing, and the 22 minute run time seemed to fly by.



    Good episode of ELR.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • This episode's "Where's Lunch?" is a pizza with pepperoni, green peppers, black olives and mushrooms.

    • The "teaser" (opening scene) of this episode shows Debra in the kitchen with the kids as Ray walks in with fast food. If you recall the teaser from an earlier episode "I Wish I Were Gus," it was the exact same setup. You can tell because everyone's wearing the exact same clothes, positioned in the same places, and Ray walks in with fast food in both teasers. The only difference is that one of the babies fell asleep in his booster seat in the first teaser, and in this episode the teaser goes on a bit longer.

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Debra: You know, we've got three children to put to college.
      Ray: Maybe we are lucky, and they're not college material.

    • Ray: What are you doing, dad?!
      Frank: I'm arranging your stockings!
      Ray: Arrange your own chips—all three of them!

    • Frank: I'm not going to give his money back! I want to teach him a lesson: Play with fire you get burned; enough is enough; you have to know when to stop. Thank you and come again!

    • Ray: I don't wanna go! Your guys were always making fun of me.
      Frank: They won't do that this time. Your head is at normal size now!

    • Frank: You're saying no to your father?!
      Ray: I'm not saying no. I just don't want to go.

    • Marie: This is for you.
      Debra: Ahh. But I thought Frank said...
      Marie: No, he doesn't know anything about that. This is my money.
      Debra: You have money?
      Marie: Oh... My father, oh, such a wise man. On my wedding day, he took me aside, gave me $200, and said, "Here". This is if you come to your senses and leave Frank.
      Debra: Wow. My dad only gave me fifty.

    • Ray: For the last time I'm not taking the money. I lost it, that's all. I'm a big boy alright? If I take the money what kind of message does that send to my kids? That no matter what happened you can go to your father and he'll make everything okay?
      Frank:: You're right. You're right.
      Ray: What, what am I right about?
      Frank: You should be able to go to your father, and he should be able to make it okay. (gives Ray his money back)

    • (Frank and Marie are quietly eating dinner)
      Frank: You're not talking to me?
      Marie: Nope.
      Frank: (smiling) I just keep winning.

    • Debra: You lost $2300 to your father?!?!
      Ray: Relax, alright? We're gonna get the money back.
      Debra: How?
      Ray: When he dies.

    • Frank: So, Ray, you feel like a winner?
      Ray: Not really.
