    • Geoffrey: Isn't that romantic? He's quoting Elmer Fudd.

      Will: Errrr, guess again. (tries to open it but can't) Look, I can't open this.
      Kathleen:: I thought you were supposed to be the big man?
      Will: You're the one that's hungry. Use your finger nails.

  • NOTES (2)


    • Hilary: We get to sit next to Arnold and Maria.
      This is an allusion to California Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife, Maria Shriver.

    • Will: I'm stuck in a basement, sittin' on a tricycle, girl gettin' on my nerves. Goin' outta my mind, I thought she was fine, don't know if her body is hers.
      Will's song about Kathleen is an allusion to Prince's song entitled "Darling Nikki." He even wears Kathleen's weave as Prince does.
