    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • In this episode Jay Leno shows his autobiography to Fran, who replies by showing him a brand new book and audio tape by Fran Drescher. She does not name the author but shows the cover of the book and tape, clearly showing a picture of Fran Drescher.

      • At the end of the episode, Max complains to Fran that Jay Leno blames them for his dog getting pregnant because Fran couldn't separate Leno's dog from Chester. In the episode "A Pup In Paris," C.C. snaps at Niles that he should watch what he says, "or I'll fix you like I fixed the dog". If C.C. neutered Chester, it's impossible for him to get another dog pregnant.

    • QUOTES (7)

      • C.C.: What is this unhealthy obsession Maxwell has with his children? I can count the number of days I spent with my father on one hand.
        Niles: Seven?
        C.C.: That's funny.
        Niles: Thank you.
        C.C.: No, that I'm really rich and you're scrubbing toilets in a suit and tie.

      • Fran: Maggie! I can't let you leave the house in that short little top!
        Niles: Mr. Sheffield's not here.
        Fran: It's gorgeous. Don't stain it, I wanna borrow.

      • Maxwell: I don't know how she could be attracted to Frank after, well, me.
        Niles: You? What's so special about you? (Maxwell stares at him) What's so special about you is...
        Maxwell: Oh, shut up.

      • C.C.: Chester loves the kennel. When I come to take him home, he just hangs on to the little bars for dear life.

      • C.C.: What is this?
        Niles: An annoying yapping dog. Holding a Chihuahua.

      • Maxwell: It's bad enough having your dog here, always begging to go out, (Fran comes in) jumping into my lap, rubbing up against me all the time...
        Fran: Does everybody need to know our business?

      • Grace: Um, Fran, I think you should come see what Chester's doing to Jay Leno's dog in the dining room.
        Fran: Oh sweetie, just pick it up, it can't be that big!
        Grace: No; remember what we saw those lions doing on the Discovery Channel?
        Fran: I don't suppose they're eating a zebra, huh?

    • NOTES (1)

      • The first immitation the Appeals Officer does is of Carol Channing, who guest starred in the series' second episode, "Smoke Gets In Your Lies," as an auditioner for one of Max's plays.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Fran: You can't go because you're going to Arnold's for burgers with Ralph and Potsie.

        This refers to the hit show 'Happy Days' which ran from 1974 to 1984. Ralph and Potsie were two of the characters and Arnold's was the name of the burger joint they ate at.

      • The title is, obviously, a parody of a children's game called "The Iceman Cometh".
