Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The episode's title The Personality Kid is a reference to the 1965 movie The Cincinnati Kid starring Steve McQueen.

    • In the scene where Peter is talking on the phone in front of Mike and Carol, look at his sleeve when he hangs up the phone. His shirt changes, and he appears to be wearing a dress. Either that or a very "puffy" shirt.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Mike: What's for dinner?
      Carol: (Humphrey Bogart impersonation) Porkshops & appleschause.
      Mike: What's that?
      Carol: (Still impersonating) Porkshops & applechause. Isn't that schwell?
      Mike: I think you need a vacation.
      Carol: (Normal voice) Guess who's coming to dinner?
      Mike: A psychiatrist I hope?
      Carol: No, I think it's Humphrey Bogart.

      Peter enters the living room..

      Peter: (Impersonating Bogart) Hi dad! We're havin porkshops & appleschause!

    • Peter: (as Bobby and Cindy are having a "fire drill" in the middle of his party) What a time to have a fire drill. Just as I was entertaining my five guests.
      Carol: But you had eleven guest.
      Peter: Who counts boys?!?!

    • Peter: I'm dull. D-U-L-L.
      Greg: For crying out loud, that's stupid. S-T-U-P-I-D.

    • Peter: (in Humphrey Bogart's voice) Porkshops and appleschause (as his way of pronouncing "pork chops and applesauce")!

  • NOTES (2)

    • Peter is struggling in vain to keep his party afloat when Bobby and Cindy conduct a surprise fire drill. The "fire drill" was part of the subplot, where the two are learning about safety in the home at school.

    • This is the famous "Porkchops and Applesauce" episode, where Peter does a bad Humphrey Bogart impression when announcing that night's family dinner menu.
