    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Jill tells Wilson that Randy once threw up in a service elevator whilst on a vacation. Randy (Jonathan Taylor Thomas) is the son that has always been known to be ill.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Tim: You know the rule. No rest stops, unless we change time zones.
        Jill: Ten more minutes into this trip, we'd have been changing more than time zones.

      • Tim: It's just not easy being me.
        Jill: You should try being married to you.
        Tim: If only that were possible.

      • Jill: (about the kids) I don't want it to be like it is with my parents. I've worked so hard to be close to them.
        Tim: Hey, hey, come on, you are. You're closer to your sons than any mom I know. I mean, come on, Randy talks to you about his girl problems, doesn't he?
        Jill: Yeah, he does do that. And Brad still asks me for advice on his clothes.
        Tim: Yeah. And Mark still hugs you. Right?
        Jill: Yeah. (sniffles) I guess they still do kind of like me.

      • Tim: You know, there is one good thing about not having the kids around.
        Jill: What's that?
        Tim: I'll lock the door. You grab my peanuts!

      • Tim: It's a sample pool skimmer.
        Jill: We don't have a pool to skim.
        Tim: I'm hoping it'll work on your gravy.

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Title: Family Ties
        Family Ties was a comedy show that ran on NBC from 1982 to 1989.

      • Jill: (showing Tim photographs) There's no way you can imagine it until you're standing this close to Bob Dylan's third grade report card. That's a D in Chorus, by the way.

        Folk singer-songwriter Bob Dylan is highly admired and an extremely talented poet, but he doesn't exactly have perfect pitch.

      • (talking about the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame)
        Hotel Clerk: They have a new exhibit called "The Changing Face of Rock 'n' Roll."
        Jill: What's that about? Michael Jackson?

        Michael Jackson's facial features and skin tone have undergone a rather dramatic metamorphosis since the beginning of his career.
