    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Alex is at the ERA meeting, a tomato is thrown at him and hits his shirt, leaving a spot. When he is in jail, there is no spot from the tomato on his shirt.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Alex: I feel the way President Kennedy must have felt when he said, "I am a Berliner!" Well, today, I - am - a - woman!

      • Alex: I will not be ridiculed in my own home...by puppets!
        Elyse: That's what's wrong with you feminists - you have no sense of humor!

    • NOTES (1)

      • Tracy Nelson is the daughter of the late Rick Nelson; her twin brothers are the lead musicians for the heavy-metal group Nelson.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Alex preludes his "I am a woman" allegory by quoting John Kennedy's "I am a Berliner." On June 26, 1963, then-President Kennedy went to West Berlin after Communist East Germany had built the Berlin Wall. As an act of moral support for those who feared eventual occupation, he declared, "Ich bin ein Berliner."

      • Mallory compares Alex' new girlfriend, Deena Marx, with "Karl Marx, whoever he is." Karl Marx was a 19th century philosopher, social scientist and revolutionary responsible for writing the Communist Manifesto.
