  • Trivia

    • Niles asks Maxwell if his British accent really sounds fake. It is indeed a fake accent as Daniel Davis originates from Arkansas. It is however not an accent that easily comes off as fake. In fact many viewers from the UK wrote in criticizing Charles Shaughnessy for his "fake" accent and suggested he get help from Daniel Davis. The cast got a kick out of this because, as stated before, Daniel Davis' accent is the real fake one.

    • In this episode, Morty and Sylvia are supposed to be celebrating their 40th anniversary, but in Maggie's Boyfriend, Sylvia says to Fran, "In the 35 years I've been married to your father..." How did they suddenly add five years in only a few months?

  • Quotes

    • Maxwell: Darling, "seeing" a doctor does not necessarily mean they're being intimate
      C.C.: Oh, please! When I "see" a man you don't think I'm intimate with him?
      Niles: Not if he sees you.

  • Notes
