Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • How is it feasible that Paul would ring the psychic's phone number even once, let alone repeatedly? Surely even he would recognize his own boss' number.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Stacey (talking to a caller on the psychic line): I predict you will be hit on by a complete stranger soon.
      (Hangs up the phone, Stuart's phone rings)
      Stuart: Bondek. (pause) Hey, you sound hot.

    • Mayor: Citizens of New York, this is the Mayor. I have been stolen.

    • Mike: By 8:00, I was excited. By 8:30, I was even more excited. By 9:00, I could say with out exaggeration that I could not get more excited. By 10:00, that excitement changed into something else. Let's call it tension. And you know me… I'm a problem solver.
      Nikki: Oh, Mike.
      Mike: What can I say? I had some wine, I was thinking of you, and the next thing I know, I'm all over myself.

  • NOTES (2)


    • Stacey: Pay no attention to the woman behind the desk.

      This plays on the quote from 1939's Wizard of Oz where the wizard says, "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain." after being discovered as a fraud.

    • The title of this episode is a reference to the movie of the same name released in 1990 and starring Richard Gere.
