  • Letting Micheal Serrato go has got to be the worst thing to happen, and that may ever happen, to this show!

    5.0
    I can't wait for the next episode, even though the show really needs to do W-H-A-T-E-V-E-R they can to get Michael Serrato back! They NEED Hazel (and in the future Tranny 911) for a good show! I'm sorry, but Julie Goldman as Svetlana's mom doesn't look, or sound right(of course) when the role was previously taken and portrayed. Why would you let him go? your answer may be, "it was strictly business" or "he wanted to be let go". Excuses! You need to work it out. You don't know the talent you had if you let someone like Michael Serrato slip through your grasp! here's my response, which can speak for pretty much all fans "It was strictly ignorance!"moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Two years after this episode originally aired in 2008, NBC's sketch comedy series, Saturday Night Live, aired an episode on May 15, 2010 which featured a Sally Field/Boniva parody ad, similar to the one featured in this episode (which starred Kate McKinnon as Sally).

      In the SNL sketch, Sally Field (played by castmember Kristen Wiig) hawked a product called "Preniva."

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Alexis: B*tch!
      Krystle: Cow!
      Alexis: Tastes great!
      Krystle: Less filling!
      Alexis: I've fallen!
      Krystle: And I can't get up!

    • Krystle: Cheers to happiness and health to all the Carringtons! It's great to be back where I belong.
      Alexis: In the trash?

    • Naldo: Next.
      Randy: Hey there, Naldo.
      Nadlo: Sending another tube of lead roads to yourself, eh?
      (Randy laughs nervously)
      Randy: Yes! I am!
      Naldo: This one looks heavier than the others.
      Randy: You better believe it.
      Naldo: Let me just pop it in the bin. Oooh! That's a big package!
      Randy: You know it! I don't think that it's going to fit in the bin, Naldo.
      (Naldo straddles the tube)
      Naldo: Oh, it's gonna fit. I'm going to make it fit.
      (Naldo starts lifting the tube)
      Oooh! Give it to me!
      (Naldo grunts)
      I got the tip in!
      Randy: You sure do, baby! Come on, baby!
      Naldo: Accepte a la mamita que soy tu dueno.
      (Naldo lifts the tube into the bin as the line forming claps and cheers)
      Thank you. Thank you. Come again.
      Randy: Oh, I just did.

    • Voice Over: Ask your doctor if Boniva is right for you. Side effects may include mild flu-like symptoms and feeling the need to express every single emotion in every single scene you are in. I mean, look, we love Sally as much as the next queen, but, seriously, she needs to dial it down a notch.

    • (Super Liza saves a twink from a juice bar fire.)
      Assistant: Liza, you did it!
      Super Liza: I'll say I did it. That juice bar was more flaming than my first husband.

  • NOTES (1)

    • Recurring sketches:
      "Svetlana" (second appearance)
      "Naldo" (first appearance)
      "Rosie and Chastity's end heckle" (first appearance)

  • ALLUSIONS (9)

    • LifeCall:

      During the "Dynasty" sketch, Alexis utters, "I've fallen" to which Krystle responds, "And I can't get up!"

      This is an allusion to the classic TV commercials for LifeCall, a medical alarm and protection company, in which an old lady is seen calling for help by uttering those famous lines.

    • Miller Lite
      During the "Dynasty" sketch, Alexis remarks, "Tastes great" to which Krystle responds, "Less filling."

      This is an allusion to the classic Miller Lite beer TV commercials in which a debate would erupt as to whether the reason for Miller Lite's greatness was due to its taste or lack of calories by uttering those famous lines.

    • 2007 Emmy Awards:
      During the "Boniva" sketch, Sally Field says "Take Boniva and there wouldn't be any more God Damn [Censored]" followed by a shot of an audience clapping. This is an allusion to the 2007 Emmy Awards in which Sally Field's acceptance speech for Oustanding Lead Actress in a Dramatic Series was censored for its anti-war sentiments because she said, "And, let's face it, if the mothers ruled the world, there would be no God Damn wars in the first place."

    • 1985 Academy Awards:
      During the "Boniva" sketch, Sally Field says she has osteoporosis but it's okay because "you like me. You still like me!"

      This is an allusion to Sally Field's acceptance speech for Best Actress in which she said: "I can't deny the fact that you like me; right now, you like me!" (which is often misquoted as simply "You like me, you really like me!")

    • The Muppet Show:
      Rosie O'Donnell and Chastity Bono's end criticism of the show from balcony seats is an allusion to the Muppets, Statler and Waldorf, a pair of cranky old men, who would heckle and criticize the other muppets for their performances during The Muppet Show.

    • The Wizard of Oz:
      After "Super Liza" invokes the powers of "mama," her shoes are magically transformed into red ruby slippers. This is an allusion to the 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz, in which the main character Dorothy (played by Liza Minelli's real-life mother, Judy Garland) wore red ruby slippers (as opposed to the gold slippers worn by Dorothy in the original novel).

    • Shazam!:
      After turning into Super Liza, Super Liza utters the words, "Shazam!" This is a reference to the 1970's children's TV series, Shazam!, in which Billy Batson would turn into the mighty superhero "Captain Marvel" by uttering the words, "Shazam!"

    • Wonder Woman:
      The similar graphics (including use of red, white and blue stars) for the "Super Liza" sketch and Liza's act of spinning around to turn into "Super Liza" are allusions to the 1970's TV show, Wonder Woman starring Lynda Carter.

    • Star Wars:
      The opening introduction to the "Super Liza" sketch is an allusion to the Star Wars movies in which a narrative introduction is displayed on screen in a crawl-like sequence over stars.
