  • Trivia

    • 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

    • 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?
