  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Sabrina: First, she [Hope] wanted to watch her Dee Dee the Dancing Dolphin DVD. And I love Morgan Freeman, but somebody has got to tell that guy that it is okay to turn down a job.

    • Barney: What helped me tap into my rough-and-tumble was becoming an auxiliary policeman. That's why they call me Badass Barney around here.
      Frank: No, it's 'cause you have an unattractive rear end.

    • Virginia: Okay, it's called geophagy. I sense you have questions. Go ahead.
      Burt: Do you have to wash your hands before you eat dirt? If it falls on the ground, is there a five-second rule? Have you ever tried sand? Is Mexican dirt spicy? If you swallow an apple seed, will you poop a tree?

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • The episode title is an allusion to the No Means No catchphrase regarding consent for sexual activity, at least between humans. As Burt and Virginia are informed, communication between wild squirrels in the mating act probably takes a more hormonal and less verbal tone than with humans. The power of the word 'No' also plays into the parenting lesson when Jimmy and Sabrina tangle with the bedtime disciplinary issue of Hope in her terrible twos.
