    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • The winner of the nail driving competition at the ball wins a gold-plated hammer worth $6.98 retail.

      • Oliver finished third in the Carpenter's Ball beauty contest. Lisa says he would have won if he'd been nice to the judges.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Sam Drucker: (Haney gossips that Lisa and Hank are running off to Acapulco) That's nonsense. Mrs. Douglas isn't that kind of a woman.
        Haney: That's what they said about Cleopatra just before she run off with Richard Burton.
        Sam Drucker: Cleopatra didn't--
        Fred Ziffel: I still can't figure why she picked Hank Kimball.
        Haney: Well, I've heard he has a certain animal attraction.
        Fred Ziffel: Well, I never seen no dogs runnin' after him.

      • Oliver: (about a TV show he plans to watch) it's a documentary on pollution.
        Lisa: You don't have to watch TV to know how to get polluted.
        Oliver: It's not that kind of pollution.
        Lisa: What other kind do you know?

      • Fred Ziffel: I kinda hate to see the Douglas marriage break up.
        : Maybe it don't have to. Maybe I can salvage it.
        Sam Drucker
        : Whatta 'ya got in mind, Haney?
        : Sam, I ain't one to let a marriage go down the drain when they might be a few dollars stuffed in the pipe.

      • Hank:(Hank's excuse for not taking Ralph to the ball) Well, uh, I have to sit with my mother. That's her night to get the bends.
