  • Trivia

    • When Maggie first is in her kitchen with the fake family, she says "I can't say things that aren't true," but later at the office when she watches the tape of that exact scene, her tone is slightly different and she says "I just can't say things that aren't true".

  • Quotes

    • Ben: (on telephone) Stinky! Party, after school, my place. Lasers, ladies, no parents. 'Course you're invited! That's why I called you!

    • Jason: As long as I'm here, Carol, let me remind you that the reason Frank is here this week, and the only reason, is to remodel my office, okay? This is a job that's very important to me, a job that I care about very much.
      Frank: And Dr. Seaver, isn't it coming along?
      Jason: Who cares?

    • Mike: I can't believe it. I'm an actor and they even won't let me play me.
      Ben: The kid that's playing me is a full-blown weenie.
      Carol: What about the girl they have playing me? I mean, does she look anything like I did when I was twelve?
      Mike: It's hard to tell. She was sitting down.

    • Jason: Look, your mom has a chance to take advantage here of a very terrific professional opportunity, so don't we owe it to her to be supportive? So just shut up until she does this stupid, stinkin' promo!

    • Maggie: Tell me, Thelma. What do you think of Steve and Dick?
      Thelma: (looks around warily) I think I work for them.

    • Maggie: Oh, and I was ready to be miserable so as not to go back on our deal!
      Jason: Honey, so was I! But isn't being miserable for your partner what marriage is all about?
      Maggie: Oh, it is for us.

    • Carol: Frank, may I touch your drill?
