    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Haney shows up fronting Carlos Wellnapper and his All-Girl Marimba Band, he performs "My Nose Used to Bleed for Kitty When I Met Her in Mexico City." The tune sounds oddly like the Green Acres theme.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Haney: (pitching the Haney Catering Service) The Money is No Object affair includes a fresh duck dinner--a half a duck to each guest. Plus, two glasses of the finest imported domestic champagne available. And folding chairs which we guarantee will not pinch the guests when they sit down.
        Oliver: Look. I--
        Haney: In addition, the un-pinched guests will dance to the music of Carlos Wellnapper and his all-girl 3-piece marimba band.

      • Oliver: (Eb wants him to co-sign for his wedding ring) I don't sign anything unless I know what it is.
        Eb: If I tell you want it is, you won't sign it.
        Lisa: I'll sign it!
        Eb: Thanks Mom!
        Oliver: Will you stop calling her Mom!
        Eb: Well, if I call her Dad, you'll get jealous.

      • Lisa: (trying to help Eb raise money) Maybe this ring would help. Why don't you take it to the prone shop and prone it?

      • Eb: (trying to get Oliver to talk to Lorelei's dad) You would think a guy who's partners in a 47.50 ring would show a little interest.
        : I'm showing as little as possible.

      • Eb: You only get engaged once.
        : Who told you that?
