Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Before they eat the roast, Willona says the roast "looks delicious and smells gorgeous." It sounded like she got her line backwards, because nothing can "smell gorgeous."

    • If you look closely at the ad behind Mr. Gage in his office, it is for Ralph's Supermarkets. However, Ralph's is a chain in California, not Illinois.

    • In the scenes outside the grocery store manager's office, the background of the scene which is supposed to be the inside of the store is obviously a photo... because it's in black & white! Was the budget really that tight?

  • QUOTES (4)

    • (after forcing Mr. Coggins to eat a piece of the tainted meat)
      Florida: You know this ain't gonna change anything.
      James: It probably won't. But baby, we got even. For once, we finally got even!

    • Old Woman: I'm in for street walking.
      Florida: Street walking?
      Old Woman: Yes, I was walking across the street and I saw my husband with another woman. So I walked over to her and threw her down on the ground and I walked up and down on her like this.

    • Willona: Ooooh, child, whoo-ooo. James, you look terrible.
      James: Well, ooooh, child. Oooh, Willona. You ain't exactly prom night yourself sweetie.

    • (Watching Florida protesting on TV)
      Michael: Whoa Mama just said something heavy to that cop.
      Thelma: Now how do you know that?
      James: Because there they go taking your mama away!
