Lizzie McGuire

Season 2 Episode 32

My Dinner with Dig

Aired Unknown Aug 15, 2003 on Disney Channel



  • Trivia

    • When Mr. Dig goes to the McGuire house and presents himself to Sam and Jo, he says, "Digby Sellers, nice to meet you.", and Toon Lizzie says, "Digby Sellers?! No! You're Mr. Dig! Mr. Dig!" However, in the episode "Last Year's Model" when Lizzie ran into Mr. Dig inside a classroom, if you look closely at the upper right corner of the board behind the teacher's desk, in chalk is written, "Digby Sellers or call me DIG." She spent more than a minute in that room and yet did not notice it. Also, Mr. Dig was her substitute in other episodes, so it's very likely he would have written that in her other classes. [Ed. As a matter of fact, something similar can be seen on the board in the episode "Educating Ethan."]

    • When Matt asks Melina if he can borrow a pen, and Ms. Chapman comes over, Matt's notebook is open to a page divider but when it shows Ms. Chapman and then back to Matt, his notebook is open to paper.

    • The CD Sam says he had trouble finding and brings to school is the one which says "Saucer People" on it. Yet in the montage of photos of the dinner, Mr. Dig can be seen holding it.

    • After Ms. Chapman tells the class to clear their desks, the desk of the girl behind Matt can be seen with books on it and without books over a series of four shots.

    • Nitpick: When Lizzie is talking to her parents about inviting Mr. Dig to dinner, she says "have" twice: "I should have never have invited him to dinner."

    • When Lizzie, Gordo, and Miranda are talking to Mr. Dig about how good Lizzie's mom's food is, a girl in flowered pants walks behind Mr. Dig to a table. In the very next shot of Mr. Dig the same girl repeats the same actions.

    • Lizzie tells her mom that she saw pictures of when her parents first met doing roller disco, but in the episode, "Bye, Bye Hillridge Junior High" Lizzie's dad tells her that he met her mom during the first day of freshman year.

    • Lizzie, Miranda and Gordo all agree that Jo McGuire is a great cook. That's the opposite impression that we've gotten from episodes like "Working Girl" (where Lizzie lies about how much she likes her mom's beef Stroganoff, then Toon Lizzie says it smells like an old shoe), "My Fair Larry" (in which the mention of Jo's Stroganoff practically makes Matt, Melina, Moe and Marge run from the house) and "When Moms Attack" (in which Sam and Matt won't touch the leftover chicken noodle casserole despite how hungry they are). Although it is possible these dishes are simply the things she doesn't do well.

    • A nitpick: Mr. Dig asks Lizzie if she wants a soda from the refrigerator, but he returns with ice tea, hey it says nitpicks.

    • When Sam pours the dressing on the salad he clearly empties the bottle, but in the next shot he shakes the bottle and it can be seen that there is still dressing in it.

  • Quotes

  • Notes

    • The director of this episode, Rusty Russ, is also listed on as William Russ.

    • For the second time Sam visits Lizzie's school, he was also there in the episode "Obsession."

    • When Matt's teacher is at the house for dinner she says "Digby, what Digby?" which is a reference to F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby in which a character asks "Gatsby, what Gatsby?"

    • This episode aired before the new Disney Channel Original Movie The Cheetah Girls starring Raven, and after that movie was the premiere of the new music video "Circle of Life" by the Circle of Stars (which featured stars of shows such as Even Stevens, That's so Raven, Lizzie McGuire, Smart Guy and others). Following the rebroadcast of the movie, from 11:39 PM to 12:00 AM, this episode was broadcast again commercial free; marking the first time an episode of LM was rebroadcast since Disney changed its schedule. This was also likely the first time an episode has been seen without commercials.

    • The title of this episode was taken from the 1981 film My Dinner with Andre, directed by Louis Malle and starring Andre Gregory and Wallace Shawn. That film consists entirely of one long conversation by two men over dinner in a restaurant.

    • Mr. Dig's full name, Digby Sellers, is used for the first time in this episode. However, he had already been listed as "Mr. Digby Sellers" in the credits for "Last Year's Model" and "Facts of Life" from season one.

    • The title of the CD that Sam loaned to Mr. Dig is Saucer People, an Internet search reveals no such group or CD so it's most likely fictional.

    • Character identification: Ms. Chapman's first name is Jasmine.

    • Matt is called Matthew by Ms. Chapman for only the third time. The other two instances were "I've Got Rhythmic" and "The Rise and Fall of Kate." Incidentally, in "Dear Lizzie" which was filmed two weeks later, Ms. Chapman refers to Matt as Mr. McGuire constantly.

    • Sam refers to Gordo by his first name, David, for the first time.

    • Characters mentioned but not seen: Lanny; Sam's softball buddies Jeremy and David, plus their chimp Fredo. Plus Clark Benson, a classmate of Matt and Melina, he was first seen in "Those Freaky McGuires."

    • The clapboard seen on the blooper reel at the end of the show gives the date of production as May 3, 2002. Which means over fifteen months passed between production and airing. In addition, this was the final episode in which Lalaine (Miranda) was seen.
      The blooper reel also contains a scene of Lizzie and Gordo which was edited out of the final version of the episode.

    • First aired in Australia on May 8, 2003.
