    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • When Dave says the line, "So if Stewart comes by looking to 'get some,' I'll direct him to your desk," the phrase "looking to get some" was obviously dubbed in post-production. I can't tell what the original line was, but it apparently didn't make it past the NBC censor.

      • "Alan" the waiter is played by production manager Kent Zbornak in an uncredited role.

      • Bill: Dave, this has gotten completely out of hand.

        Bill: Screw your problem, I'm talking about me.

      • Dave: All I'm saying is, I don't call any of my ex girlfriends three times a day.
        Lisa: Maybe that's cause you're so busy talking to your mother.

        Alfred "Weird Al" Yankovic is an American comedian and musician best known for his parodies of contemporary hit songs, although he also writes original comic songs as well. Weird Al also had a TV show called (appropriately enough) The Weird Al Show (1997).
