    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (7)

      • Where's Hooterville?: While plotting their flight to Paris, it's stated that Hooterville is approximately 300 miles from Chicago. (Haney figures it will take them five days to fly there.)

      • The plane the locals choose for their flight to Paris came from atop the High Flyer Diner on Highway 27. It's owned by one of Haney's cousins.

      • Lisa sees the Executive Producer, Writer, and Director credits on Oliver's towel, a storage crate, and Oliver's bathrobe (respectively) and remarks about each one.

      • Lisa determines that for four weeks in Europe, she will need to pack four dresses for each day (morning, afternoon, cocktails and dinner) for a total of 112 outfits.

      • In this episode, Mr. Haney's first name is disclosed as Eustace.

      • Haney attempts to sell Oliver a money belt, a suitcase that falls apart when you hit the button, a vaccination, and Haney's Traveler's Checks.

      • The towns people get a plane and want Oliver to fly it to Europe. Haney claims it is 300 miles to Chicago (from Hooterville). This is one of many claims to Hooterville being somewhat near Chicago. St Louis is 296 miles from Chicago. Seeing it doesn't snow in Hooterville (remember the XMAS episode where Lisa paid Haney to make fake snow for Oliver's present.).

        Just another example of Hooterville can't exist anywhere. Like Springfield in "The Simpsons"

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Oliver: (to Lisa who's cooking) What's that mess?
        Lisa
        : They're croissants.
        Oliver
        : They are?
        Lisa
        : Well, they aren't official French croissants. I made them out of hotcake batter.
        Oliver
        : I must say your hotcake batter has an international flavor, which is about the only flavor it does have.

      • Lisa: (seeing the Executive Producer credit written on Oliver's shower towel) You used to swipe towels from hotels. Now you swipe them from executive producers.
        Oliver
        : What?

      • (Haney's trying to sell Olvier his own brand of travelers checks)
        Olvier
        : Haney's Traveler's Checks? I could just imagine me trying to get someone to cash one of those for me!
        Haney
        : Easiest thing in the world. (man walks up) Oh, excuse me, sir. Would you mind cashing this ten dollar traveler's check?
        Man
        : Sorry, I---Aww, it's a Haney's Traveler's Check! Be glad to hep ya!
        Haney
        : Thank you. <em> (man leaves)
        Oliver
        : Where did you have him stashed?
        Haney
        : Who?
        Oliver
        : That shill that cashed the check for you.
        Haney
        : Mr. Douglas, I never saw him before. He was a perfect stranger.
        Man
        : (returning) How long we gonna be here cousin Eustace?

      • Oliver: (discussing the $300 cost to fly to France) This won't really cost you the three hundred dollars. This is a business trip. It's deductable.
        Fred: From what?
        Oliver: Your income tax!
        Fred: Did that go through?
        Oliver: Yes!
        Newt: Well, they ought to send us some literature or something.

      • Hank: (showing a film of Paris) These pictures were taken on Charlie's recent visit to Paris. (onscreen appears silent film footage of American doughboys marching around the Arc de Triomphe during WWI) It's the main street of Paris on a typical Sunday afternoon. As you can see, everybody is walking and having a great time.
        Oliver
        : When was Charlie in Paris?
        Hank
        : 1918.
        Oliver: Turn on the lights! Whattaya showing those for?
        Hank: The only other ones Charlie had were of the Kaiser signing the Armistice.
