Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Lindsay seems to get all the blame for the car accident, but it wasn't actually her fault. Vehicles backing out of a driveway are required to yield to all traffic driving by. Therefore the car backing up was actually at fault.

      Edit: Michigan has no-fault insurance.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Neal: Oh my god! I guess Elvis hasn't left the building.

    • Bill: It's a Parisian night suit in case you didn't know.
      Gordon: A Parisian! Ooh la la!
      Neal: It's not a Parisian. It's a jumpsuit. My grandfather in Florida wears them all the time because he's too lazy to put on pants.

    • Kowchevski: Ladies, this is just for tomorrow's scrimmage. This isn't the last chopper out of Saigon. Can we please just crank down the drama a notch?

  • NOTES (3)

    • Anachronism Alert: The show is supposed to take place during the Fall of 1980 and the song "Flamethrower" by the J. Geils Band wasn't released until October of 1981.

    • Music: "I'm the Man" and "Look Sharp" by Joe Jackson; "Slip Kid" by The Who; "Stomp!" by the Brothers Johnson; "Flamethrower" by the J.Geils Band; "Take the Long Way Home" by Supertramp

    • The series was pulled for the remainder of February sweeps.
