    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Hurricane season is from June 1 to November 30, and most hurricanes usually occur from August to October. It is highly unlikely that a hurricane would occur in December, especially near Christmas.

      • Hurricanes are supposed to cut out all of the power; why then are lights still on in Fran and Val's room during the ordeal?

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Maxwell: Oh Nile I'm awfully worried, what if she dies?
        Niles: Oh I'll feed her eventually sir, I'm just screwing with her head.

      • Sylvia: It's times like this you look up to God and ask: "Why? Why?!
        Maxwell: We can't ask why, Sylvia. It's nature. It's random. It's..
        Sylvia: No! Why don't you marry my daughter?

      • Maxwell: I think the holidays are a time for us to be together as a family.
        Fran: For us to all be a family we'd need a legally binding certificate registered with the state. And Pottery Barn!

      • Maggie: Guys come up with the lamest excuses.
        Fran: Oh, yeah. Like when you told me you had that whisker burn all over your face from kissing my mother? Hello?!!
        Maggie: Fran, that really happened.

      • (Fran and Val are sitting on their hotel bed, where the heavy rain is leaking through the roof, right over their heads)
        Fran: Well I am never coming back to this place again. I ordered room service a half hour ago! Do you see a fajita?

      • CC (to Niles): You wouldn't be able to do this to me if I wasn't in this chair.

        Niles: But ya are, Babs! Ya are!

      • Fran: We're going to die!!!
        Val: Shouldn't our lives be flashing before our eyes?
        Fran: Val, we're over 30, single, and in bed with each other. What life???
