    • Brighton: So Brock, now that you're in a coma, aren't you worried you'll get killed off?

      Niles: As in Hitler?

    • Fran: Brock this is my best friend, Val Toriello. Alright Val, embarrass me.

      Maxwell: Frankly, Ms. Fine, after the way he treated you I don't care to work with him any more.
      Fran: Oh, too bad, 'cause now he could really hit those high notes! Good night, Mr. Sheffield! (Fran walks upstairs)
      Brighton: Does that mean she kicked him in the...
      Maxwell: (interrupts) Goodnight, Brighton!

  • Notes

    • Stephen Nichols starred on the daytime drama Days of our Lives the same time as Charles Shaughnessy.

  • Allusions

    • When Fran, Sylvia, and Yetta were watching TV they talk about how Days of Our lives was not the same without Shane, the character played by Charles Shaughnessy. And when they talked about the Dick Van Dyke Show, they talked about the character of Millie Helper who was played by Ann Guilbert who plays Yetta.

    • At one point in the episode, Stephen Nichols' character puts on an eye patch. This alludes to the character he played on Days of Our Lives, Patch, who obviously also wore an eye patch.
