When the customer service representative from the bank is reviewing Ralph's finances with Dottie and Brandi, she twice pronounces their last name "Thoroson."
Bank CSR: "The will is very straightforward. Mr. Thorson left everything to you, formally speaking.
Brandi Thorson: "Formally?"
Bank CSR: "Ummm, well, aside the house, there are no other tangible assets."
Dottie Thorson: "What do you mean?"
Bank CSR: "There's no money in any of the accounts. The insurance policy has been cashed in; the pension fund, liquidated; your credit cards are maxed out. There's nothin'. In fact, you owe $98,000."
Dottie: "Ohhh! Oh, Ralph! Ohh."
Brandi: "Wait, wait, I don't understand."
Bank CSR: "Only one signature is required to access the account. Apparently Mr. Thorson had financial difficulties. I am terribly sorry."
Brandi: "No, you're not. Why pretend to be?"
Bank CSR: "It's my job."
Brandi: "Mom? Bounty hunters don't cry."
Music includes the song "Spirit in the Sky" by Norman Greenbaum. This was the biggest (and only) hit for the Massachusetts native based in California, reaching #3 on the charts in 1970. It's heard during the opening credits and scenes leading up to Ralph's murder.
