    • TRIVIA (2)

      • When George Petrie's character comes into the Kramden apartment, Ralph introduces him as "Joe Muncie." However, at the end of the episode, when Norton informs Ralph who REALLY was the Raccoon who voted against him, magically Ed refers to him as "Joe Rumsey."


        On the blackboard at the Raccoon Lodge, some of the names on it have significance. Kramden, obviously. But also, the name "Philbin" is a reference to the producer of The Honeymooners, Jack Philbin. And "Shor" pays homage to the famous NYC club owner "Toots Shur", whose establishments Jackie frequented quite often.

      • When Ralph believes Norton has betrayed him by voting against him at the Racoon Lodge he says: "Brutus had his Caesar, Kramden has his Norton". It should be: "Caesar had his Brutus, Kramden has his Norton".

    • QUOTES (5)

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • ED NORTON: The armature sprocket is causing interference, which in turn causes the combustion line to interfere with the flow in the Dynaflow.

        Norton's referring to a "Dynaflow" in his diagnosis of the malfunctioning vacuum cleaner was most likely an in-joke reference to the Variable Pitch Dynaflow Drive which was an exclusive feature of the 1956 Buick Wagon Estate model. Buick was the sponsor of The Honeymooners for the 1955-1956 season.
