Season 1 Episode 6

High Priced Spread

Aired Friday 10:00 PM Jul 06, 2008 on USA



  • Trivia

    • Junior mentions Chris is playing Division II basketball but Vegas does not place spreads on non-Division I games for any sport.

    • Goof: Chris shoots the second of 2 free throws at the end of the first half. As soon as the ball hits the rim the buzzer goes off ending the half. The next scene shows the other team take the ball up the court and shoot a last second shot and the buzzer goes off again.

    • In the scene when we see Scott changing oil to a car it is clearly seen that the oil has clear brown color, which means that the oil is fresh, and not worked out. When oil is used and needs to be changed it has a black grease color.

    • The FBI letter that Jinx receives states that her husband has been gone 25 years now. Mary states he disappeared 2 days before her 7th birthday. This would make Mary 32 years old.

  • Quotes

    • Mary: (speaking to the gambling support group) I loved my father more than anything in the whole world. He was a warm, loving, funny, generous man. And he loved me more than anything in the whole world. I know that he did. And he was also a, um... a serious, serious gambler. And more than anything that's happened to me in the last thirty years, for better and worse, he's the reason I am who I am today. My father... dad... daddy... he was my whole world. And he, um... he, um... walked out of my life two days before my seventh birthday.

    • Mary: What's the spread on tonight's game?
      Marshall: The Tigers are favored by a half point.
      Mary: So in order for Chris to keep it inside the spread, the Tigers would have to lose.
      Marshall: See? And everybody thinks you're just a pretty face.
      Mary: Really?

    • Mary: (voiceover) We've all had the experience of talking about a long-lost friend with someone, and then out of the blue the phone rings and it's that same long-lost friend. Famous psychobabble quack Carl Jung called these occurences "synchronicity." Skeptics regard these synchronicitous events as mere coincidences. Others posit a pie-in-the-sky cosmic connection linking all things. Take a guess on which side of the argument I fall.

    • Scott: (to Marshall and Mary) Y'all should come to the game tonight.
      Mary: Oh, I don't know. I've got some things to...
      Scott: Free tickets.
      Mary: What time?

    • Mary: He called me ma'am.
      Marshall: Yeah, but he was looking down your shirt when he said it.
      Mary: Why are you being so nice to me?

    • Mary: (to Marshall after entering a male locker room) I fear I may swoon; in which case promise you will do absolutely nothing to assist me.
      Marshall: You have my word.

    • Mary: One way or another, I am going to nail that guy! I mean literally flay him, nail his hide to a tree, spread it with jam, and then watch the squirrels go to town.

    • Mary: Hey there, Socrates. What brings you to these hallowed halls? Boning up on your philosophy? Taking an oral exam? Having sex with your old professor?
      Marshall: Okay, get it out of your system.
      Mary: Aww; look at you, all blushy.
      Marshall: I am not.
      Mary: Sweetie, there's no reason to be embarrassed. These are confusing, scary times. Your body's changing.
      Marshall: Ha ha.

    • Mary: Okay, would you categorize Dana's kisses as sweet, yearning, or more of the tongue-down-the-throat give-it-to-me-now big daddy variety?
      Marshall: See you have no capacity for restraint and now you get nothing.

    • Marshall: Man, every time I walk into a gym it gets my blood up.
      Scott: Oh, did you play?
      Marshall: Badminton; we played our tournaments here. See this scar? Shuttlecock injury; ended my career.
      Scott: Yeah, is he kidding?
      Mary: I don't know; either way it's pathetic.
      Scott: Excuse me. (walks away)
      Mary: Way to work shuttlecock into the conversation, jackass.
      Marshall: It's one of the funnier words.

    • Junior: Seriously Mary? Working on that (referring to Mary's car) makes me sad.
      Junior: (to Marshall) Say Bro, can't you like talk some sense to her.
      Marshall: She doesn't speak sense.
