    • QUOTES (12)

      • Maxwell: I propose we shut up the office on the 15th; no one important is ever around for the holidays. (beat) You staying in town again, C.C.?
        C.C.: No, this year I'm getting as far away from this place as possible.
        Niles: Ooh, Santa got my letter!

      • Fran: Niles, have you seen Mr. Sheffield? I need to talk to him about Maggie's trip to the Kibbutz!
        Niles: I thought you talked him into it this morning.
        Fran: Yeah, but now it's this afternoon, I gotta talk him out of it!

      • Niles: This old dishrag has seen better days.
        (C.C. enters the kitchen)
        Niles: Were your ears burning?

      • (Maggie is on the couch in the living room, kissing her boyfriend)
        Niles: Can I vacuum in there yet?
        Fran: I think there's enough suction going on in there.

      • Fran: Honey, maybe a time at a convent won't be so bad. I have two words for you: Sounda Music.

      • Maxwell: It's amazing. Every time I ask you to do something, you always manage to screw it all up.
        Fran: And yet, you continue to ask me! You need help, Mister.

      • C.C.: Where do you stash your cash?
        Niles: Somewhere you'll never get near.

        Niles: Oh daylight come and me wanna go home!

      • Niles: How's your pudding, Miss Babcock?
        C.C.: It's delicious, why?
        Niles: (Holds up a carton of milk) Just as I thought. These expiration dates are meaningless.

      • C.C.: See Maxwell, if we've got Jack, we've got a success. I will bet my reputation on it!
        Niles: Oh, sorry. There's a five dollar minimum.

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Val & Fran: Stevie, the nerd from the A.V. club?!?!?

        In a flashback, Fran shoots down Sylvia's news that her neighbor's son is dying to take her out on a date, but the two girls are quick to dismiss him, citing his nerdiness.
        Stevie happens to be the son of Mrs. Spielberg, making him Steven Spielberg, the famous movie director.

      • Niles: Daylight come and me wanna go home!

        This line is from Harry Belafonte's Day-O (Banana Boat) song, in which the singers are supposedly working in a banana factory all night and they say "daylight come and me wanna go home."
