    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The board game seen at the beginning of the episode is called Police Alert, made in New Zealand by Holdson \ Thos Holdsworth & Sons LTD. Auckland circa 1985. Though they appear to be playing some kind of house rules variant with regular playing cards and poker chips.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Cheryl: (referring to Tracy's investment in "Hoochie Mama") So, how do you feel about me 'getting into bed' with your girlfriend?
        Jethro: Some people would pay money to see that. (Cheryl groans)

      • Van: (when Munter gives him a red and green martini) What's this?
        Munter: It's an old Maori cure handed down to me from my koro.
        Van: Cure for what?
        Munter: Vampire bitches who want to steal your wairua.

      • Eric: (to a very pregnant Rochelle) So, I gotta ask... is it mine?
        Rochelle: What?
        Eric: The baby, huh? After our night of passion...?
        Rochelle: Oh, that 'night of passion' where you got me drunk and tried to have it away and couldn't get it up?
        Eric: (vastly relieved) So it's not mine!

      • Munter: I think I've got this sixth sense that I didn't know I had before. Because I look at Draska and I go, 'No ****ing way are you pregnant.' In heat, maybe, but not pregnant. I think maybe it's a Maori thing.

      • Wolf: You're a hard woman, Cheryl West.

      • Cheryl: Well, I guess you don't have that sixth sense you didn't know you had.
        Munter: Then how come I think I still have it?
        Cheryl: Pregnancy tests don't lie. Well, not in the way you want them to. They can give a false negative but they can't give a false positive. Pascalle was a false negative... ****, the things I put in my body when I didn't know I was pregnant with her!
        Munter: What if the whole person is a false negative, you know?! Can that throw the test?!
        Cheryl: Sorry, Munter.

      • Munter: No problem, Mrs West. I'm the man in your tight spot. (Cheryl stares at him) I'm here for you.

      • Cheryl: Awww my first grandchild's the spawn of the devil.

      • Aidee Walker, who plays Pascalle's best frenemy Draska Doslic is a member of the band Duchess, whose song "Dancing Shoes" is featured in this episode. Aidee plays keyboards and percussion, as well as singing back up vocals.

      • The drink Munter gives Van, which includes "natural herbs and stuff", and is an old Maori recipe handed down from his Koro. According to the producers, some of the spirits in it include gin, bacardi and vodka. There is also a dash of Cerebos Mint Sauce. Writer Rachel Lang warns: "It is made of many parts of pure spirits, but the rest is Munter's trade secret. And trust us, you don't want to try it."

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Think Yourself A Baby:

        This is from Shakespeare's Hamlet Act 1, Scene III. Lord Polonius tells his daughter Ophelia, "Marry, I'll teach you: think yourself a baby; that you have ta'en these tenders for true pay, which are not sterling."
