      • Crystal's blind date Donald asks Dan about the design of the Conner's kitchen. Dan says he didn't design it, and when asked who did, Dan responds, "Some guy named Garvin Eddy." Garvin Eddy is the production designer on a number of sitcoms, including this one.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • (Becky and Darlene are helping make dinner)
        Darlene: Well how much should I put? The box says serves 10.
        Roseanne: Well, there's 8 of us, so 2 boxes ought to do it.

      • Becky: (referring to the stinky cheese) Uhhh smells like Dad's feet.
        Dan: (walking into the kitchen) Something sure smells good.

      • (Crystal walks into Rodbells diner)
        Roseanne: Hey Crystal. You want some coffee?
        Crystal: Only if you got some made.

      • Roseanne: (on the phone at Rodbell's) What?!...I can't hear you, Darlene. Tell Becky to stop screaming...Okay, now what did DJ do?...H-How could he do anything like that?

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • In this episode, Jackie is bickering with Roseanne about why she set Crystal up with a date, and not her. Dan walks in and refers to Jackie as "Bachelorette Number Two". This is an allusion to The Dating Game, a 1970's game show where a contestant would call on three bachelors/bachelorettes, asking them questions to determine which one they would date.

      • DJ: (being pushed by Dan into Rodbell's to see Roseanne) Come on, Dad, I wanna go see the movie.
        Dan: Hold on thar, Bobalouie! I wanna check out this cute waitress!

        Dan is alluding to the Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters, Quickdraw McGraw and his sidekick, Bobalouie.

      • The title of this episode is an allusion to the movie, The Courtship of Eddie's Father (1963), starring Glenn Ford, Shirley Jones, and Ron Howard. It was the inspiration for the successful 1960's television series by the same name.
