      Mooney: Hum?
      Lucy: Are uh, are you afraid of him?
      Mooney: Afraid of him? Certainly not! I don't particularly like him. He reminds me of my wife.
      Lucy: Is she efficient, too?
      Mooney: No, she's bald.

    • Mr. Mooney, when referring to Kasten says, "He reminds me of a sergeant I once knew."  This is an allusion to the character, Sgt. Ernie Bilko played by Phil Silvers in the 1955-1959 CBS series "The Phil Silvers Show."  The 1996 theatrical movie, "Sgt. Bilko" was based on that series and starred Steve Martin in the title role.
