    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (7)

      • Visitors at the front door in the opening: Trudy and Oscar's relatives.

      • Goof: Trudy bought Suga Mama a new dress, but Suga Mama had the dress altered & used the extra fabric to make a sweater for Puff to wear. However, when Puff jumps up on the couch to sit next to Suga Mama a few scenes later, his sweater is gone.

      • Ray-Ray crashes into the back of Ruben's SUV while it's in a parking lane, but he couldn't just keep driving around the block until their car ran out of gas? Or just go around the SUV into the driving lane and bail?

      • Ray Ray Jr. says that he loves his cousin Penny and his cousin Chanel, but Chanel is not his cousin. Ray Ray Jr.'s father is Oscar's cousin and Chanel's on Trudy's side of the family, making her Penny's cousin, but not Ray Ray Jr.'s cousin.

      • When Ray Ray hit Dr. Parker's SUV, when Chanel, Penny, and Ray Ray Jr. were in it, it wasn't wrecked.

      • He might have gotten it repaired before the kids got in the SUV. You know how fast auto body shops are.

      • The song Oscar's cousins were playing in the car is the same song that the Chang Triplets were dancing to in the episode "Hip Hop Helicopter."

      • Oscar: Hey that's my cousin Ray Ray in there!
        Ray Ray: The break is gone! Hey move that SUV!
        Bounetta: Get out of the way! AHHHH! (Ray Ray's car crashes into the back of the SUV)
        Oscar: Hey Ray Ray! Bounetta! I didn't think you guys would make it.
        Bounetta: Now Oscar, you know a 72 hour drive couldn't keep us from witnessing our cousins' Baptism.

      • Ruben: I said red light and you moved.
        Bounetta: I did not move.
        Ray Ray: Hold on baby, I'll handle this, so what you tryin' to say Rulan?
        Ruben: It's Rueben, roll the R, like you roll those eyes!
        Ray Ray: Well you better roll up outta my space Rubarb! I know you ain't callin' my wife a liar. She said she was standin' still.
        Diana: She may have been standin' still but the rest of her was jigglin' baby.

      • Trudy: What on Earth were you kids thinking?
        Oscar: Trudy, we know what they were thinking. That's how you drive the truck!

      • Ray Ray: If you call me one more name that I don't understand you ain't gonna have to worry about no baptism, you gonna have to worry about a SLAPtism!
