      • Harriette: (looking at the water bill) That is a little high.
        Carl: A *little* high? They don't use this much water at Sea World!

      • Carl: Eddie! Did you turn on the sprinklers this morning?
        Eddie: I sure did. And I did it without being told to.
        Carl: Ah but Eddie, you (grabs Eddie's shoulders firmly) forgot to turn them off!

      • Judy: (Following Laura, who took all of the mail, in the house) I'm really getting sick of this! I want some of that mail and I want it now!
        Laura: OK, here!
        Judy: (Looks through the mail Laura gave her) This is junk mail.
        Laura: Hey, you're new in this profession. You've gotta start at the bottom.
        Judy: I was born at the bottom!

      • Eddie: I don't believe this. I do something good, and I'm in trouble.
        Carl: Big trouble. And from now on, ask me before you do something I told you to do.

    • NOTES (3)

      • This is the first episode to feature a cold open. Every episode from this point on uses one except for "Torn Between Two Lovers" due to originally airing with "Rachel's Place", and "Farwell My Laura".

      • The German episode title is "Alles frei erfunden", meaning "All Fictional".

      • The scene in the seasons 1, 2 and 3 opening credits where Carl, Harriette, and Rachel all hug is from this episode.
