    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The story about Oliver and Brian's law office in the "Hooterville World Guardian" starts on page 1, is continued on pages 2 and 3, goes back to 1, and then to page 4 before "continued next week".

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Hank: (helping Oliver drum up business) Well, what you should do is advertise. Go on TV and, uh, do what those used car salesmen do. Pound on the fender, only you pound on the desk and you talk about how a new line of laws just came in and you're overstocked with last year's laws and you'll undersell any other lawyer in town.
        Lisa: Say, that's a great idea!
        Hank: That's a great idea!

      • Eb: Who is this Brian Williams they mention on pages 1,2,3,1 and 4?
        Oliver: You don't know him? He grew up here in Hooterville.
        Eb: Hmmm. Uh, is he a tall boy with green hair?
        Oliver: Green hair?
        Eb: Naw, that was Betty Abernathy. She used to eat chlorophyll and it went to her head.

      • Hank: (upon seeing Oliver) How's the business, counselor? Business counselor? I thought you were a lawyer.

      • Lisa: (as secretary, to Oliver and Brian) Has anyone got any dictatorship they want me to take?

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The film that's "Held Over, 3 Big Weeks" at the Hooterville Bijou is Wings. This 1927 silent film won the first Best Picture Oscar.
