    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Dave: How many stalkers has Bill had this year? Four?
        Lisa: No, six, actually, because remember when he thought that one stalker was really identical twins stalking him in shifts?

      • Bill (about Dave's hat): Take that off, it makes you look like a twelve-year-old. (Removes Dave's hat) Oh, I'm sorry, I thought it was the hat.

      • Mr. James: Nothing fits better than a dead man's shirt.

      • The staff complain about their hats
        Joe: What a colossal ripoff.
        Dave: Come on guys there are terrific gifts.
        Catherine: Yeah for a little league team.
        Bill: With attention deficit disorder.
        Dave: I really hate to have to say this but it is the thought that counts.
        Matthew: Yeah and these are the result of a really cheap crappy thought.

      • Bill: Wait a second, I chipped in $75 to buy the man a dirty shirt in a frame. What's this, some sort of pyramid scheme?
        Mr. James: Hey is someone starting a pyramid scheme? I'd like to get in on that.

      • Dave: Look, I'm no etiquette expert, but I think when someone is generous enough to give you six sports cars, it's in bad form to ask for a seventh.

    • NOTES (3)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Jimmy James: I gave you Fibber McGee and Molly.

        Fibber McGee and Molly was one of the all time classic radio comedies. Running from 1935 to 1956, the program starred Jim and Marian Jordan as the flighty Fibber and his long suffering, loving wife Molly. One of the most memorable recurring gags on the show (and one of the best loved running gags in American comedy history) was Fibber McGee's closet which whenever it was opened erupted in an avalanche of comic sound effects.
