    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Oliver is irritated by repeatedly being endlessly referred to as "the famous pig lawyer''.

      • The desk clerk presents Oliver with an itemized bill totaling $885: $350 for Arnold's royal suite, $228 for room service (Arnold threw a champagne party for the chamber maids), and $185 for repapering the ping pong room. The Douglases' charges are only $6 for their junior suite and $25 for the hotel doctor. (No, none of this adds up to $885.)

      • When Eb calls Sam Drucker's store from Chicago, he asks the operator for Hooterville 2-3, ring one.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • (Arnold comes into the lawyers meeting wearing a checked sportscoat)
        Oliver: It looks like something Al Capone would have worn!
        Eb: It was made by Al Capone's old tailor.
        Arnold: Oink. Oink. Oink.
        Eb: Arnold says it has a built-in holster for his gat.

      • Eb: (pitching Oliver on going with them to Chicago) I'd be a bigger help to you in Chicago than Ican here. I can pig sit at night while you and the beautiful and glamourous Mrs. Douglas are out getting crocked.

      • Eb: (reading from the "Hooterville World Guardian") Arnold will be accompanied to Chicago by Oliver Wendell Douglas, the famous pig lawyer!
        Oliver: (irritated) Pig lawyer?
        Lisa: And when you went to Harvard they said you wouldn't amount to anything.

      • Oliver: (watching Eb coax a weather prediction from Arnold) They don't even make movies as bad as this!
