Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Bill (about giving Mr. Strickland the recipe for the barbeque): Okay, I'll do it. But I have to get Gilbert to agree.
      Buck: Oh, Bill...
      Bill: I didn't make the recipe, my family did. Hank, if I don't act honorably there's no point in preserving my name. It'd just be a word women have trouble remembering.

    • Bill: By family tradition, we only light the fire with a page of good news from the paper.
      Bobby: "Baboon arrives safely at Space Station."
      Bill: Space monkeys are always good news.

    • Bill: People will eat my food and say "Boy, those Dauterive's were something. It's a shame they're extinct."

    • Gilbert: Alas, we are the final two. Our family tree can safely be cut down to build or coffins.

    • Bobby: It's just like shop, dad, but when you're done, you can lick your tools.
      Hank: Shop is nothing like baking! You can't live inside a cake you built; you can't cut your finger off on a pastry bag!

    • (Gilbert is screaming at Bill, who is sobbing on his floor, when Hank comes in)
      Hank: Say, how ya doin' there Gilbert? Bill, I brought you some coffee.
      Gilbert: Sir, leave us - let the Dauterives nurse their wounded pride in darkness!
      Hank: Yeah, I keep hearing about the Dauterive pride but all I see are a crying drunk and an angry sissy. If you've got any real pride, stop kicking a man when he's down! You wanna talk more about this, you and I will do it outside!

    • (Bill and Gilbert are standing in Bill's yard after only Gilbert showed up to his family gathering)
      Bill: There's no one but us? But what about Aunt Esthme and Cousin Violetta?
      Gilbert: Aunt Esthme died of fever, Violetta died suddenly in her sleep - the swamp takes what it calls its own. Let me tell you of our ill-fated kin: (points at people in an old family photograph) consumption, drink, impostor, madhouse, public madhouse, barren, barren, barren - well, pretty much this whole left side. Leaving only us.

    • Genealogist: Lots of Americans have ancestors who are royalty - African princesses, Gaelic chieftains. Tracing them just takes time, money and a flexible definition of royalty.
      Bill: I have all three!

    • Dale: Now that Joseph is thirteen, I'm teaching him the family exterminating business. I named this little fella Joseph (holds up a rat in a cage) - to be an effective exterminator you first have to learn to kill a little part of yourself.
