  • Quotes

    • (Arthur is about to leave for the retirement home)
      Doug: Good luck, Arthur.
      Arthur: Thank you. What else can I say, except, I hope you die, you fat pig!

    • Carrie: I'm thinking it's time we do something about my dad.
      Doug: You want to do the pillow thing we saw on Law & Order?

    • Arthur: How dare you go through my personal things!
      Doug: You go through my stuff all the time.
      Arthur: That is a lie.
      Doug: Yesterday I caught you eating my ChapStick.

    • Deacon: Does Arthur know he's getting the boot yet?
      Doug: Yeah, we broke it to him last night at Sizzler.
      Deacon: How'd it go?
      Doug: Not as well as we hoped. He held his breath for a couple of minutes and bit a waiter.

    • Spence: This is May 15th, the two year anniversary of when [Danny and I] moved in together.
      Doug: Somebody's getting lucky tonight.
      Spence: Actually, I am.
      Doug: I was kidding.

    • Spence: I figured it's time to reciprocate. You guys have us over all the time.
      Carrie: We don't "have" you over, you just come.
      Doug: Sometimes when we're not there. We found stuff.

    • Doug: I got some nacho sauce in my eyes. There were some tears, but they were snack-related.

    • Danny: You sure do know a lot about [astronomy].
      Spence: When you're in 10th grade, 4'10", and still hairless, it's something to do on a Friday night.

  • Notes

    • The German episode title is "Ene mene muh...", meaning "Eeeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe...".

    • The episode was dedicated in loving memory of Joseph V. Knipfing, the father of Kevin James and Gary Valentine, who died January 30, 2006.

  • Allusions

    • Doug warns Lou Ferrigno that he "would not want to see me when I'm angry." This refers to The Incredible Hulk, where David Banner (played by Bill Bixby) delivered this same warning. When angry, he would turn into the Hulk, played by Lou Ferrigno.
