    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • It was mentioned that James Cowan's sister passed away during this job. She had been ill for some time and died two days after Christmas.

      • Corin Ames (Pinky) and Mike Holmes Jr. make brief appearances on camera when Mike takes a call from Damon while Mike was in Canada on another ongoing job.

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Mike Holmes: (going over the very intricate design plans of the house) Y'know, it's a love/hate relationship between architects and us and engineers. Hey, man! I like it, I like it! But come on down here so I can kick your frickin' rear end. Great to draw it...(now) build it!

      • Mike Holmes: (while giving Ellen a tour of the work in progress) The whole idea is to give open concept.
        Ellen DeGeneres: Which is why you live in the hills. You want the view.
        Mike Holmes: Oh, look at the view over this way.
        Ellen DeGeneres: And if you cut those neighbor's trees down, you've got quite a view.
        Mike Holmes: Well, I don't think you want to. (laughing)
        Ellen DeGeneres: Well, I don't want to, but you do it at night with somebody else.

      • Mike Holmes: (talking to Damon in California while Mike is in Canada [during winter] to coordinate the work) Keep up the good work. We'll stay in touch, okay? If you need me, just call me.
        Damon Bennett: Holmes, do I still have a job when I come home?
        Mike Holmes: Not if you have a tan!
        Damon Bennett: I'm returning the convertable today.

      • Jennifer (homeowner): Well, I said "You need to tell me how much more this is going to cost, because if I had a money tree, you've already cut it down."

      • Mike Holmes: Deal with a contractor and you're on your own.
        Ellen DeGeneres: Will you marry me?

      • Mike Holmes: Now, I've read your contract. It's warantee galore; everything's in there to protect you, but yet you're caught in this trap, aren't you?

      • Ellen DeGeneres: Every day, millions of us across this country undertake all sorts of home renovation projects. Our next guest is on a one-man mission to expose crooked contractors everywhere. Please welcome Mike Holmes!

    • NOTES (1)

      • The work done on the "Pasadena 911" episodes was not originally planned. When Mike Holmes appeared on "Ellen", it was not with the intention of doing a home rescue in California. However, when the idea was suggested and proper local contrcators agreed to come on board, the project was green lit.
