  • Trivia

    • When Francesca sees Raph at the hospital, she asks him if he's 'Mary's Raphael'. But when Mary had told her about him, she had only referred to him as her fiance, and had never mentioned his name.

    • After reviewing Francesca's arrest record, Mary tells her that she better think twice before committing a lot of civil disobedience in this country. She says that it's because we have a "three strikes" law. However, that law only includes felonies, and civil disobedience is a misdemeanor, so it wouldn't apply.

    • The name of Peter's business is Alpert's Autoplex.

  • Quotes

    • Marshall: Think you're gonna be okay here? I've got a, sort of a date thing.
      Mary: Sure, I'll be fine. Who's the lucky guy?
      Marshall: Shut up!

    • (Mary's mad about the commerical that she thought Raph wasn't going to do)
      Mary: Hey! We discussed this and I thought we agreed that you weren't gonna do it!
      Raph: What? The commerical?
      Mary: Yeah, the commerical! I can't believe that you whored yourself out like that; with real whores no less!
      Raph: Well, the girls weren't my idea.
      Mary: Look, I don't care who gets creative credits, it's still your face up on the screen.
      Raph: Peter upped his offer to $3,000. I can help you pay the mortgage.
      Mary: I don't need your goddamn help!
      Raph: But I want to help you! Why is it such a big deal for you?
      Mary: It's a big deal because that's not the guy that I got engaged to! I mean, what's next? A cowboy hat and a monkey? Christ, Raph! I mean your embarrassing yourself on TV and you don't even know it!
      Raph: No, but obviously I'm embarrassing you!
      Mary: Yeah, as a matter of fact, you are.
      Raph: Well, too bad. What makes you think you get to decide what job I take or I don't take? I hate your job, but that's what you love so I keep my mouth shut. How can you decide to tell me what I can or cannot do for a living? Huh?.
      (phone rings, Mary goes to pick it up)
      Raph: When you think of a good answer, call me.
      (Mary answers the phone, it's Marshall)
      Mary: What?
      Marshall: Planning on coming in today?
      Mary: Give me a break. Francesca kept me up 'til 5 in the morning. What did I miss?
      Marshall: Oh, not much, Francesca just moved herself into a new house.
      Mary: What? When? How?
      Marshall: Don't forget who, why and where.

    • Francesca: I will not sit back and watch my country's revolution on CNN while you install your own puppet regime!!
      Mary: We still do that?
      Marshall: Yeah, the sad thing is we don't use real puppets anymore, just socks with buttons sewn on.

    • Mary: When I buy a house, the real estate market tanks. I take in my mom and sister, they both get arrested and my house gets destroyed. Global warming. Was that me?
      Marshall: Why do I think this isn't about climate change?

    • Mary: And that is why they are called pumpkins.
      Marshall: Oh!
      Eleanor: Fascinating.

    • Marshall: She wasn't breathing, Stan! (breaks down crying)
