  • Trivia

    • While Danny was never a mental giant, he has become, by this point, a maddeningly simple-minded character prone to frequent misunderstandings and goofy flights of fancy. This development of character is surprising when most of "Soap's" other characters were fleshed out in smart and interesting ways by Season Four (for instance, compare single-parent Jodie of these episodes with suicidal Jodie of the first season).

  • Quotes

    • (Burt and Danny plan to go undercover)
      Burt: Like Serpico. We have to go like Serpico.
      Danny: You mean, dress up like Italians. I'll have to buy a pushcart.

    • Burt: You're escaping reality.
      Mary: That's because I hate it. Wendy's been kidnapped. You're being blackmailed. If this was a movie, I'd walk out.

    • Maggie: [Carol] hangs out with cowboys?
      Jodie: She's a rodeo groupie.
      Maggie: Stable girl. No pun intended.
      Jodie: Good.

    • Saunders: All I know is, if my mother were missing, I'd spend the rest of my life trying to find her.
      Eunice: Where's your mother now?
      Saunders: I haven't the foggiest.
