    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Hank's favorite pie is mincemeat. This is also mentioned in episode 9.

      • The Metcalf's house number is 1135.

      • Caroline refers to her torn stocking as having a run. In England, they are called ladders--she uses so much British slang, this is unusual.

      • Ginger appears to be Protestant, or, so desparate to marry that she will not wait for Father Dreher to offer Pre-Cana classes to marry Chrarlie. She announces to Linda that she is going to Pastor Swanson for the ceremony. (This could happen--the Church would have to bless the marriage afterward)

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Ginger (to Caroline): As of now you are a CASH customer. Or did you think that land of the free meant we give things away here? WE DON'T!

      • Linda (to Ginger): Why do you always blame the woman?
        Ginger: I don't always blame the woman. I blame the person who's fault it is. And its her fault she put out. And it's my fault I didn't.
