  • Quotes

    • Fay: (describing the people who burglarized her house) You see, they not only took things, they also left something. A small token of their esteem! In the living room…on the rug!

    • Councilman Detweiler: I am going to bury you and your chief deeper than we just planted that piece of dirt back there (gesturing towards Maizel's gravesite).

    • Eddie: Mick, this handsome, middle-aged man asked me for a match. I said, "How about you and me?" What can I say? I'm a hopeless romantic.

    • Howard: Linda, may I speak freely?
      Linda: I wish you would.
      Howard: Since meeting you I've realized that there has been a part of my life that has been AWOL for longer than I care to admit. It's time I checked out of the POQ and went TDY. I long for the kitschy detail of little feet marching.
      Linda: Are you reenlisting?
      Howard: I want to make an honest woman out of you. I want you to be my wife.
      Linda: Oh-oh, my darling Howard! I love you so! (they begin passionately embracing and kissing)
      Howard: (face alight) Then it's "yes"?
      Linda: No.

    • Belker: Hey, Curry-breath, your immigration status is hanging by a thread, here. Talk American.

    • Howard: I was wondering if I could ask you a direct, personal question.
      Henry: Sure, fire away.
      Howard: What is it like being a Hebrew?

  • Notes

    • Actress Dominique Dunne, who played the battered mother in this episode, did not need make-up to create her bruises. They are real, administered by her abusive boyfriend, John Thomas Sweeney.

    • This episode was dedicated to the memory of Dominique Dunne, who was killed by her boyfriend just two weeks before it aired.
