      • Grady refers to Esther as Sister Ike.

        This is a play on the name of Reverend Ike (real name Frederick J. Eikerenkoetter II). Reverend Ike was an African American television and radio evangelist whose catchphrase was You can't lose with the stuff I use! He was also known for his Secret of Good Luck. Reverend Ike passed away on July 28, 2009 after suffering a stroke in 2007.
