        • Maw Maw: (in case of her death) Don't forget to wrap my head in tinfoil so the worms don't get me.

        • Virginia: Burt, go get the champagne I was saving for when Oprah comes crawling back to network TV.

        • Virginia: You really want her going to the same schools Jimmy went to?
          Jimmy: Mom, my schools were not that bad.
          Virginia: Name four consonants.
          Jimmy: America, Europe, Mexico, and the North Pole.
          Virginia: Is that right? I don't know. I went to the same schools.

      • NOTES (2)

      • ALLUSIONS (2)

        • The episode title is an allusion to the 1993 film Indecent Proposal, based on the Jack Engelhard novel, starring Robert Redford, Demi Moore and Woody Harrelson, about a young couple being offered a large financial reward in exchange for compromising their wedding vows. In this episode the incentive requires only a marriage on Sabrina's part and she in turn expects Jimmy to make a decent effort to impress her with his proposal.

        • Virginia: I love Mike & Molly.

          Virginia (and later Burt) reference the sitcom airing Monday nights on CBS, which premiered during the same fall season as Raising Hope.
