Episode Summary

    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Oliver returns to using the phone on top of the pole because the Monroe brothers, when fixing the hole in the roof, cut the line to the kitchen phone.

      • Lisa's new birthday present for Oliver is a full sized model of the Eiffel Tower, made of wire hangers, by the artist LaTouche.

      • The crate had the phrase "Karl Marx Is a Hothead" written on it by the county's great crate writer Dooley Hickens. Mr. Bennett says Hickens has a piece on display at the Museum of Art in New York City that reads "Henry VIII Is a Sloppy Eater."

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Oliver: (wanting to ditch the Stavinski with the county museum) Yes, but Lisa, it would be selfish of me to keep a great work of art like this all to myself. I'm going to give it to the world. They deserve it!
        Lisa: Oliver, you're a great man!
        Olvier
        : (modestly) Oh, really, I'm--
        Lisa
        : You think more of others than others think of you.
        Oliver
        : What?

      • Lisa: (about the Stavinski) Oliver, if you don't like it now, don't worry. It'll grow on you.
        Olvier: Oh no, it won't. I'm not going to get that close to it.

      • Alf: (answering phone) Good evening. Monroe Brothers.
        Oliver
        : (irate because rain's coming through the roof) You stupid knucklehead!
        Alf
        : Just a minute. (turning to Ralph) It's for you, Ralph.

      • (Oliver wants Haney to dump the Stavinski art in Simpson Swamp)
        Oliver
        : What is it going to cost me?
        Haney
        : Fifty dollars.
        Oliver
        : (yelling) Fifty dollars!!
        Haney
        : Shhh.
        Oliver
        : Why is it going to cost me fifty dollars?
        Haney: It shouldn't. But that's the way I am.
