    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Mr. James' wife candidates: a rich lady named Dupont, Melanie Griffith, Wynonna Judd, Naomi Judd, Ashley Judd, and Dave's mom.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Dave: Tough day with the ladies, sir?
        Mr. James: Yeah.
        Dave: Well you know maybe cold calling prospective wife candidates isn't such a good plan.
        Mr. James: Maybe. I mean I'd try the Internet, but all the really sexy women on there are actually guys using fake names.

      • Dave: I know it's a crummy story but someone has to do a piece on the Williamsburg Bridge renovation.
        Lisa: Give it to me, Dave. I'll take it.
        Joe: That's not the first time Dave's heard Lisa say that.
        Dave: Give it a rest.
        Bill: I'll bet that's not the first time Lisa's heard Dave say that.
        Lisa: Look you really don't want to get into this.
        Catherine: I bet Dave's never heard that one before.
        Dave: Seriously, this is a very sensitive area.
        Beth: Oh that's what she said.
        Lisa: Okay I'm telling them.
        Bill: And I'll bet that's not--Actually that doesn't really work, does it?

      • Catherine: You shouldn't say, "to desperately beg on bended knee."
        Dave: I know, it's a split infinitive.
        Catherine: Really? I just thought it sounded pathetic.

      • Jimmy: I'm going to need a pot of coffee, a box of number two pencils, a legal pad and one of those thingies you put on your head and talk into it.
        Beth: Oh yeah. Peter Frampton vocoder?
        Jimmy: No.
        Beth: Darth Vader space helmet?
        Jimmy: No.
        Beth: Telephone headset?
        Jimmy: That's the one.

    • NOTES (1)

      • When Bill reads the letter Dave wrote to Lisa, he points out a word that is "not popular with the ladies." Dave replies that it's a typo, and it is meant to say "pushy." "Pushy" is dubbed over the original word "curt."

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Bill: How's your memo to Lisa coming along?
        Dave: I'm on page 24.
        Bill: That should get her attention.
        Dave: I'm sure that's what John Hinckley said.

        John Hinckley was the severely disturbed man who saw the movie Taxi Driver and became obsessed with actress Jodie Foster. He attempted to assassinate President Ronald Reagan in order to impress her. He has been institutionalized ever since.

      • Jimmy (on the phone): Melanie? Yeah, how are you and that Antonio Banderas doing?

        Jimmy was obviously talking to actress Melanie Griffith, who has been married to Spanish actor Antonio Banderas since 1996. They met during the filming of the 1995 movie Two Much.

      • While it appears this episode title is named after the band, Led Zeppelin, it is actually named after their self-titled first album. The last few episodes of the second season are named after Led Zeppelin albums.
