  • Allusions

    • 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.
