  • Trivia

    • Just before Sam Roberts drives over the cliff, he turns the radio on and listens to You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby. The song was originally recorded by Bobby Darin in 1961, however in the version played Stefanie Powers is singing it.

    • Jonathan and Jennifer discuss a scene from a movie where James Cagney squashes a grapefruit in to someone's face. They are discussing the 1931 film The Public Enemy.

    • The women are dancing in the pool to Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky.

    • The first time you see Jonathan, he shows up at his office and his secretary doesn't even know him. This is very different from the Jonathan Hart character in the series who prides himself on knowing his staff.

      The first time you see Jennifer Hart she is in a yellow car having a race with Johnathan. This sequence was used in the opening credits for all five series of the show.


      How is it that Jonathan is supposed to take Jennifer's mother to dinner for her birthday in the pilot, but in the series her mother has been dead for years?

  • Quotes

      Jennifer: Oh no, or I could refuse to make love to you for the rest of the year.
      Jonathan: That sounds like you.

    • Jonathan: Remember the fellow that was so sexy, attractive, brilliant, virile?
      Jennifer: How did I manage to miss him?
      Jonathan: You're lying on him.
      Jennifer: Oh yeah, prove it!

    • Dr Metz: Well, how goes our first day?
      Jonathan: Outside of being mugged, elbowed in the stomach, pummelled, fried and nearly drowned, it's been peachy keen so far doctor. I haven't had this much fun since I was a P.O.W. in North Korea.

    • Silvia: Hey, remember me? The girl on the floor in the nighty, with the teddy bear and the pacifier.
      Jonathan: Funny how these little things seem to stick in your mind.
