    • Gwen: It took the Marx Brothers years to find each other.
      As most everyone knows, the Marx Brothers were a vaudeville comedy team who went on to find major success in the movie business. There were originally five brothers, with Gummo leaving the act in 1924 before any films were made. Zeppo left the business in 1933. Groucho, Harpo and Chico continued to make movies until 1949. Groucho became the host of a very popular TV quiz show in the 1950s called You Bet Your Life. Some of the Marx Brothers best known films are The Cocoanuts (1929), Animal Crackers (1930), Duck Soup (1933), A Night at the Opera (1935), A Day at the Races (1937) and Room Service (1938).

    • Bobby H: You haven't heard her sing 'Scarborough Fair.'
      "Scarborough Fair" is a traditional English song. Most people are familiar with it from Simon and Garfunkle's version which appeared on their 1966 album Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme. (The title comes from the song's lyrics.) Paul Simon combined the old song with some new lyrics and the result was called "Scarborough Fair/Canticle," but it's usually known by the shorter name. In 1968 the song gained new popularity when it was featured in the movie The Graduate, rising #11 on the charts in April of that year.

    • Gwen: ...I'm pretty sure it was she who ripped the head off my Honey West doll.
      Honey West was a character played by Anne Francis on a TV series of the same name in 1965-66. She was a private investigator, distinguished from other by ther fact that she was female, and very sexy.

    • Gwen: ...Cissy Byron came over all excited with one of those little ovens that cook with a light bulb.
      Gwen is referring to the Easy-Bake Oven, a popular toy first sold by a company called Kenner (later bought by Hasbro) in 1963. Its source of heat was a light bulb, and it could actually cook a few simple foods.
