  • Trivia

    • If you listen closely, you can hear Theo's voice cracking. His voice cracks when he says, "Dad, what are you doing?" His voice gets deep and husky when he says, "Come here" to Denise. Maybe it's because both Malcolm-Jamal Warner and Theo were fourteen at the time and going through voice changing.

  • Quotes

      Mrs. Westlake: I drove a taxicab! (everyone laughs) This man got into my cab and said, 'I need to get to the airport, and step on it!' I said, 'you want me to step on the airport?' He said, 'I need to get there in a jiffy!' I said, 'this is NOT a Jiffy, this is a Yellow Cab! (more laughs)
      Clair: So, did that man make it to the airport?
      Jack: Yes, but I missed my flight!

    • Clair (obviously talking to Mrs. Westlake): I love your accent. Where are you from?
      Jack: I'm from Indiana.
      Mrs. Westlake: That's why I marry him. I love the way he talks!
