The Odd Couple
Fiscus: It's like living with Felix Unger.
Having Ehrlich as a roommate moves Fiscus to compare him to Felix Unger. Felix is one half of Neil Simon's The Odd Couple. One of the most successful plays ever written The Odd Couple is a staple of American theatre and the story has been adapted into a movie, a movie sequel, a television series and even a female version of the original play. Comedicly relating the experiences of two incompatible roommates, the couple are Oscar Madison (easy going, plebeian slob) and Felix Unger (neurotic, fussy neat freak). Oscar and Felix were most famously played by Eddie Bracken and Art Carney (Broadway), Walter Mathau and Jack Lemmon (movie) and Jack Klugman and Tony Randall (television).
