  • Quotes

    • Dale: And so, a farewell to A Farewell To Arms.

    • Dale: Excellent grouping, Colonel. Plus those hollow points penetrated Shakespeare all the way into the so-called joyous comedies. "As You Like It?" I like it plenty.

    • Hank: "As the ambulance pulled away, Cassie remembered the smell of onions from her grandmother's kitchen." The end. Joe Jack, you awake?
      Joe Jack: (crying) I've got half a mind to go to Nova Scotia and kick that Benedict's ass.
      Mr. Strickland: Boy, that Cassie reminds me of someone. Hey, how big did you guys picture her ta-tas?
      Enrique: It said she was slender as a willow, so... grapefruits?

    • Dale: The Tuesday special is Saturday night specials. Feel free to browse.

    • Hank: Bobby, why don't you go look in the Adventure section? Anything about a boy with gumption should be fine.

    • Peggy: Today we'll be discussing A Tale of Two Cities, a terrific book by that most "Dickensian" of authors, Charles Dickens.

    • Dale: So, this is a bookstore. Smells boring. Have you ever thought about putting sawdust on the floor? I'm getting apple everywhere.

    • Dale: I have oodles of guns!

    • Peggy: So take your apple-
      Dale: It's a Braeburn.
      Peggy: -and get out.

  • Notes

    • The book Peggy has to read for the book club, "Dinner for Onions" is shown many times throughout the remainder of the series, often being read by Peggy.

    • The episode was delayed 20 minutes in the Eastern and Central time zones due to the wildcard game between the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers running too long.
