    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • This episode marks the first appearance of Elizabeth "Lizzie" Westphall, Donald Westphall's patiently self sacrificing eldest child. Played by Dana Short, Lizzie will eventually emerge as autistic Tommy Westphall's primary caregiver and the person most responsible for keeping the potentially chaotic Westphall household on an even keel.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Beale: My uncle Jumbo once said ' Never buy anything from a man who could someday operate on you '.

      • Beale:(talking about Jane to Westphall) She spent one very passionate afternoon in the arms of a total stranger and now she's three months pregnant. The problem is, she's only been out of here for two months. Somebody stole the cookies from the cookie jar.

      • Cummings: I'm starting to get the impression that you resent taking responsibility for your actions.
        Westphall: No, that's not true at all. I may have overlooked some administrative procedures. I'm sorry if I did but seven people are resting comfortably in isolation right now, three of whom might be dead at this time if we hadn't acted when we did. If I had to do it over, nothing would change.

      • Rosenthal: Tell me this chaos will end.
        Daniels: This chaos will end.
        Rosenthal: I don't believe you.

      • Beale: Donald, don't let this stuff get you down. As Coach Bum Phillips once said of Earl Campbell, "You may not be the only one in your class, but it sure wouldn't take long to call roll."

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Bewitched
        Beale: Mrs. Stephens. I don't think your daughter-in-law is a witch.

        Doing a phone consultation, psychiatrist Hugh Beale has a conversation with a woman who sounds suspiciously like the mother of Darren Stephens; husband of Samantha Stephens the suburban witch and central character of the TV series Bewitched (1964-1972). Although Samantha tried to refrain from using her magical powers (or at least hiding them), a number of people including her mother-in-law had suspicions about her supernatural abilities and origins.
