In this episode, Marin keeps track of all the countries where her book has been sold by pinning flags on a world map. Near the end, she receives a package from her publisher containing two small wooden shoes tied together with a red-white-and-blue ribbon indicating she has also conquered "The Netherlands." However, when she pins the flag on the map, the country on the map reads "Neththerlands."
Sara: (about Eric) When I fantasized about not being treated like a sex object, I should have been more specific.
Annie: A mud wrestler is just a dirty stripper.
Celia: That's not the only thing that's a bust. Looks like we're taking this party train straight to Snoozeville.
Annie: I've found that fun is more spontaneous if there's careful planning behind it.
Marin: When fantasy meets reality, you never know what you're going to get. Sometimes the reality falls just a little short of the dream, and sometimes it exceeds all expectations. It takes courage to reveal your secret desires. Sharing them is a gamble that sometimes bring us closer together and sometimes pulls us apart. Maybe that old saying is true. "Be careful what you wish for. It just might come true."
Marin: Good Day, Elmo! My partner and I were just talking about dreams. I don't know about you but sometimes I think dreams are the only thing we have. They help us escape the reality of our lives. But what if someone were to offer you the chance to turn things around and make a dream or two come true. Would that be so bad? What do you think Elmo? Is it wrong to make your fantasy a reality?
