    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Loretta: Okay, would you like a demonstration of how you apologize?
        Jethro: Go on, then.
        Loretta: What's the sound of one hand clapping?
        Jethro: What? (Loretta slaps him)
        Loretta: Oh my God, I'm so sorry! I just have no idea what came over me! I'm really, really, really sorry.

      • Van: You and me, Draska, we've got to sort this out.
        Draska: I know.
        Van: Everyone else's gone mental.
        Draska: I know, it's like a movie, like Romeo + Juliet, not that Leonardo is anywhere as cute as you are!

      • Hugh: I know Tracy from Varsity. One of my flatmates was shagging her for awhile. A real screamer, as I recall.
        Jethro: Right.
        Hugh: Why do you ask, Jethro, hm? What, you like a little Asian takeout now and then?

      • Jethro: (when Tracy approaches him at a bar) Uh, can I get you a drink?
        Tracy: (referring to Jethro's sleeping with her while pretending to be Van) No, but an apology might be nice.
        Jethro: (playing dumb) Apology for what?
        Tracy: I think you know.
        Jethro: Look, if it makes you feel any better, people get us mixed up all the time.
        Tracy: Strangely, no, no that doesn't make me feel any better.
        Jethro: Okay, but, you have to admit, you did end up with the more desirable brother.
        Tracy: (amused) I didn't 'end up' with anyone, Jethro.

      • Pascalle: I'm going, this smell is going to make me want to hurl.
        Loretta: But you're a model! Hurling is a way of life!
        Pascalle: Ha, ha.
        Loretta: Hey, given that models don't actually eat anything, what do they hurl when they hurl? Cigarette smoke? (they both laugh)

      • Van: You see, the thing is, Mr Hong, I don't like being treated like a man slave. Man, yes, slave, no. I know I owed you big time for that antique thing I smashed when we broke into your house and stole all your stuff, and it was really unfortunate that your mother broke her hip... how is she, by the way? Good? Em, the thing is, I figure whatever debt I owed you, it's paid off by now.
        Mr Hong: The debt, Van, is over. (he shakes Van's hand) Long ago.
        Van: Really?!

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Hugh says that he will take care of the Hongs, calling them the "Yellow Peril". "Yellow Peril" is a racial slur which was first used in the late 19th century after the western world, particularly the US, was flooded with Chinese immigrant labor, and was later associated with the Japanese during the mid 20th century due to Japan's expanding empire. It was believed that this threatened the wages of white men, and was therefore deplored by those competing for their jobs, and because it was felt that they lowered wages by their willingness to work more cheaply.

      • When The Blood Burns:

        This is from Shakespeare's Hamlet Act 1, Scene III. Polonius tells his daughter Ophelia, "I do know, when the blood burns, how prodigal the soul lends the tongue vows: these blazes, daughter, giving more light than heat, extinct in both, even in their promise, as it is a-making, you must not take for fire."
