    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • This episode carried directly over from the episode of SPIN CITY that aired before it. Sports Night (the fictional Sports news program the SPORTS NIGHT takes place at) is on a TV screen at the end of the Spin City Episode "INTERNAL AFFAIRS", with Casey doing a story, that scene continued without interruption. The camera pulled into a closeup of the TV screen and then when Sports Night began, it panned off the screen (which had become a studio monitor) to reveal Casey and Dan in the studio.

      • Dana's fear of fish is a subject of comment. The technical term for this is ichthyophobia.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Dan: The sophomore sensation credits her agility and quick first step to her father, who used to take her to a neighborhood park all covered with cheese. We'll be bringing you part 2 of that story tomorrow night. Casey?
        Casey: The San Diego Padres... (continues behind conversation)
        Jeremy: (In control room) Did he just say "cheese"?
        Elliot: He did just say "cheese".
        Dana: What was it supposed to be?
        Jeremy: What was it supposed to be?
        Natalie: Let me find it.
        Jeremy: A park all covered with cheese?
        Dana: I had three people talking in my ear.
        Natalie: I can't find it. What block?
        Kim: We just did it.
        Elliot: The fifties.
        Chris: Fifty-Five.
        Jeremy: How about "a park all covered with trees"?
        Natalie: He said "cheese"?
        Jeremy: Welcome to the show.
        Casey: (finishing report) ... with 86 strikeouts. You're watching Sports Night on CSC, so come on back.
        Dave: We're out.
        Will: Two minutes back.
        Casey: (To Dan) "A neighborhood park all covered with cheese"?
        Dan: I said "cheese"?
        Casey: You said "cheese".
        Dan: Dana, did I say "park all covered with cheese"?
        Dana: There's a consensus yes.
        Dan: (to Casey) What are you looking at?
        Casey: I'm here for you man.
        Dan: (To Dana) Let me fix it when we come back.
        Dana: Fix it when we come back.
        Casey: Are we sure its wrong? Are we sure the park isn't all covered with cheese?
        Dan: Its covered with trees, and shut up.
        Casey: I was just about to change my mind and recomend you.
        Dan: Really?
        Casey: No.
        Dan: Dana, Casey's being mean to me.
        Dana: Casey, be nice to Dan.
        Casey: (re-reading script) "The sophomore sensation credits her agility and quick first step to her father, who used to take her to a neighborhood park all covered with cheese." Dana, we got all kinds of sentence construction here. I think he's going to have to explain that its the park thats covered with cheese and not the father.
        Dan: This is an unforgiving room.
        Natalie: Plus its a little hard to figure how running through cheese helped the kid with her agility and quick first step.
        Dan: Thank you, everyone!

      • Casey: I gather it went well.
        Dan: Y'know, sometimes it's worth it, taking all the pies in the face, sometimes you come through it feeling good.
        Casey: Yessss.
        Dan: And how was your day?
        Casey: Sometimes you just stand there, hip deep in pie.

      • Dan: I will not be the subject of your mockery...
        Casey: Oh, I think you shall
