    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (4)

      • In the final scene, Bobbi looks out the peep hole in her apartment door to see Yuri walking away down the corridor; however, Bobbi lives in #203, and when looking out the peep hole, she should be looking across the hall at apartment #204 (Tabitha's apartment), not down the length of the corridor.

      • Yuri: What about the job at the lab?
        Val: That was three jobs ago.

        In Gila Monster (season 3, episode 1), Val worked in a medical lab and assisted Yuri by getting some DNA tested quickly.

      • The magazine that Val picks up while working in the Tan's store is UMM (Urban Male Magazine), with Tanya Kim on the cover. This was the Fall 2007 issue.

      • The music used in this episode was:
        Lust For Love (1983) by Images In Vogue.

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Police Officer #1: Yuri Kukoc?
        Yuri: Hey, look, I don't care what that waiter said, all right? I did not take the cheese wheel!
        Val: (stepping out from behind the officer) Hey, Bro! Great news! You got a new roomie! (he shows his ankle monitor) Eh? (laughs)

      • Yuri: You know, today's your lucky day; you're going to get two Kukocs at a bargain price.
        Val: Hey, Cutes... Val Kukoc at your service.
        Trixie: Are you a handyman too?
        Val: You could say I'm good at plumbing. You need your pipes cleaned out?
        Trixie: I sure do.
        Val: Well, you just tell me where and when.
        Trixie: Today, downstairs in the boiler room. Yuri will show you what needs fixing.

      • Val: That's a pretty fancy jungle.
        Bobbi: Yeah, well, Yuri had some paint that was past its expiry date, so you know, it was going to go bad if he didn't use it.
        Val: Really? Well, well, well... I had no idea my brother was so... creative. (he leaves) Or should I say 'procreative'?

      • Stanley: I didn't do... nothing happened. We were talking about weddings, traditions, like the couple being apart the night before the wedding.
        Sault: Oh, phew! You had me a little worried there!
        Stanley: Thanks for your concern.
        Sault: No, seriously, wedding advertisers have paid for this entire issue of Canuck Magazine. 'Kay, if I had to write that he left you at the altar, my ass would be so fired.
        Stanley: Everything's going to be fine.
        Sault: Yeah. (she stops smiling) ...'Going to be'?

      • (Val is taunting Yuri about the real reason why he returned to Robson Arms)
        Yuri: I don't want to marry [Bobbi]. Anyway, she doesn't know.
        Val: She doesn't know? What, she wasn't there, or it was that forgettable? She's going to figure it out; it took me two seconds. You're up there every day painting chimps.
        Yuri: I'm just trying to do something nice for the little guy.
        Val: 'Something nice' is exactly what you shouldn't be doing! What'd I tell you about Kukoc fathers? Now do yourself a favour... keep your mouth shut and stay away.

      • Val: Ah, look at [Robbie]... spitting image of his father.
        Bobbi: You know Bobby?
        Val: Hm? No... sure. I think I met him once, he's about, you know, yea-tall and has some kind of hair.
        Bobbi: So you don't know Bobby.
        Val: Well, not well. I mean, you know, it's not like we're brothers or anything. (he laughs)

      • (standing at the altar, to Stanley)
        Carol: My ex-husband was late for our wedding. Shame he showed up at all, really... would have saved on lawyers' fees.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Val: (to Yuri) I'm just here til my sentencing. It'll be like old times' sakes; we'll be like Fonzie and Chachi (he gives two thumbs up) Ehhhhh! ...Except they weren't brothers.

        Fonzie and Chachi were two of the characters on Happy Days; they were cousins. Fonzie's trademark saying was 'Ehhhhh!' while giving a thumbs up.

      • (after Val has referred to Trixie as 'his lioness')
        Yuri: Okay, Mufasa... get to work.

        Mufasa is the father lion in Disney's The Lion King (1994).
