    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • A camera visibly obstructs most of a shot for a few seconds during the Grateful Dead's second performance ("Saint of Circumstance").

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Jane Curtin: Well, the early returns for the 1980 Census are coming in, and it appears that the results are very predictable. As projected, the population will exceed 250,000,000 people. The average family size has decreased from 4.5 to 3.1, and 60% more wives have joined the workforce. Thus far, the only surprise seems to be that 99 out of 100 Americans have a toilet in their kitchen.

    • NOTES (1)

      • For the only time, Laraine Newman plays Christie Christina outside the presence of Dan Aykroyd's E. Buzz Miller. While this characters was revived for the "Women Empowerment" sketch, Jane Curtin introduces her Iris de Flaminio.
