  • The theme of the title runs throughout the plot of the episode. Everyone is trying to be independent and rile against the norm or the expected.

    Vincent is wonderful is this episode. He is having fun with the situation rather than being frustrated with being so hurt.



    Amy is Amy...she wants to control every situation - with Vincent, with Bruce, with Lauren. I am so glad that Bruce stood up for himself. He was right - being ordered back to Amy's court is as bad as being ordered away from her court.



    The storyline for Maxine is perfect. Almost losing a child is difficult for a parent. She is really handling it well. I love how Donna's character is being developed. Even the name on the name plate is perfect. Excellent.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Donna is visiting Vincent at Maxine's house, she is talking about the fetus liking heavy metal. She is proud that her baby is a little metal head. This is ironic since in later episodes Donna is totally into broadway musicals. Typically, the two do not mix.

  • QUOTES (0)

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • When Vincent says over the baby monitor, "It's people, soylent green is people!" It was an allusion to the 1973 movie, Soylent Green, which starred Charlton Heston.

    • When Donna tries to interrupt Patrice and Amy in Amy's chambers and Amy sides with Donna, Patrice says, "You are getting big." While Patrice is obviously talking about the pregnacy, this is also an allusion to Jillian becoming a regular on the show rather than a recurring character.

    • The title of this episode, "You are not the Boss of Me" is an allusion to the book titled, You are Not the Boss of Me." It is a book about the adventures of a modern day mom, which is exactly what Amy is.
