    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Goof: At the end of the episode, there's a joke where Jerry says that his real name is Gary. The previous director called him "Jerry" and he was too timid to correct him, so he'd been known as Jerry ever since. However, in "Time Capsule", April reads from Jerry's mother's diary and says "Jerrold starred in his school production of Peter Pan".

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Leslie: Ron, Chris has 14 witnesses. I need you to talk all the department heads and find out who's going to testify.
        Ron: I don't know the names of the other department heads.

      • Leslie: comments on a painting in the courtroom In 1849, Sarah Nelson Quindle exposed her elbow outdoors which was a Class A felony. Although she felt the law unjust she acknowledged that she had broken it and she nobley accepted her punishment - to be set adrift on Lake Michigan like a human popsicle. Look how calm she looks. That's how I feel, totally zen.
        Leslie: after she is further accused of wrongdoing I will accept one slap on the wrist. But when you sit back and let your reputation be destroyed, indicates painting you go down in history as a frozen whore.

      • April: Okay, there are these things called cookies where, like, if you go to a site and buy something, it'll remember you and then create ads for other stuff you might wanna buy.
        Ron: So it learns information about me? Seems like an invasion of privacy.
        April: Dude, if you think that's bad go to Google Earth and type in your address.
        Ron: throws his computer in the dumpster
