    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (4)

      • In yet another differing account of their honeymoon, Oliver says that he and Lisa traveled on the famed Orient Express. (It there that they ran into Lisa's mother, who was onboard selling sandwiches.)

      • In the Hooterville World Guardian headline story about Arnold being deferred by the Army, Oliver is referred to as the "famous pig lawyer".

      • This is the first episode in which the producers have fun with the credits that appear on screen. A name appears in front of Oliver, then Lisa, who says, "Whose names are those?", then Oliver again. Lisa tells him some names appeared in front of her, and he says some appeared in front of him, too.

      • Ralph Monroe, disputing her draft notice, tells the inducting sergeant she has a cousin in the Army. His name is Louise.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Lisa: Oliver! (the "Written by" credits appear on screen as Lisa steps on the front porch) Whose names are those? Oliver!
        Oliver: Over here by the barn! (the "Directed by" credit appears on screen and Oliver casually notices it)
        Lisa: Oliver! When I came out of the house, there were lots of names in front of me.
        Oliver: Yeah, there were some in front of me, too.

      • Lisa: (to Selective Service board member) Well, why would the Army want Arnold? He's a pig.
        Board Member
        : Well, just let the Army worry about his table manners.

      • Doris: (to Lisa and Oliver) We couldn't go if we didn't have neighbors like you.
        Fred: Yeah. Just my luck. You had to move in.
        Doris
        : Fred! If you don't want to go, just say so!
        Fred: I don't want to go!
        Doris
        : Fred! You're asking for it!

      • Oliver: I know all about the Army. I was in the last war.
        Induction Sergeant: On which side?

    • NOTES (1)

      • The copy of this episode has a more faded, grainer and darker picture than most in the Green Acres library. It appears it may have be taken from a 16-mm print that was used in syndication. The episode on the MGM-released DVD, however, is fine.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • When the FBI agents arrive to arrest Arnold, Lisa tells them she loves their TV show. The series The F.B.I. was then airing on ABC on Sunday nights.
