Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Vicky's mom was engaged to Jack, played by Lyle Waggoner in the episode "Breaking Up is Hard to Do." Now, she's engaged to Sid, played by George Segal.

    • The rabbi conducting the service is wearing a prayer shawl (called a "tallis" in Yiddish or "tallit" in Hebrew). This is incorrect as rabbis do not wear the prayer shawl when conducting a funeral service.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Albert: This is the worst bachelor party ever!
      Dave: Albert, this isn't Sid's bachelor party; it's his memorial.
      Albert: Right. When does the stripper get here?
      Dave: She was here already.
      Albert: Damn it! Did I enjoy it?
      Dave: Yeah, yeah. You had a great time. In fact, you had sex with her.
      Albert: Wow! Yeah, I still got it! We going to play cards or not? And where the hell is Sid? That guy would be late to his own funeral.

    • Dave: Does this mean we don't have to do this, uh, you know, silly renewing the vows thing?
      Vicky: Dave, I know the answer you're hoping for, but I think we both know which one's coming out of my mouth.

    • (aboard the airplane)
      Dave: Larry, what the hell are you doing up here?
      Larry: It's awful back there.
      Dave: Larry, another word out of you, okay, the next time this family goes on a trip, I'm going to leave you in a kennel.

    • Vicky: What's more important: my mother's happiness or a free trip to the Caribbean?
      Dave: Vicky, I know what answer you're hoping to hear, but we both know which one is going to come out of my mouth.

    • Dave: So, does that make sense?
      Kenny: Yeah, yeah, and I really don't think we need to talk about this anymore. Think I got it.
      Dave: No, no, you think you got it? Come on, that's not good enough, Kenny, all right? This isn't like regular sex where there's some girl there to say no to everything.

    • Vicky: (About Kenny) Well, now that he has a boyfriend and he's going to be home alone while we're away, I think you need to talk to him about safe sex.
      Dave: What, are you kidding me?
      Vicky: No. We don't know what he knows and doesn't know about sex.
      Dave: Yeah, and I'd like to keep it that way.
      Vicky: And I'd like to keep him from getting AIDS.
      Dave: All right, all right, all right, fine, fine. I'll go have a talk with him about the birds and... the birds.

    • Kenny: I had the best time tonight with Dylan. He spells his name with a "Y." Why? Because he's cute.

    • Vicky: Hey, you know what? We should do something romantic.
      Dave: I totally agree. You know what, uh, give me ten minutes to use the can, and I'll meet you upstairs.
      Vicky: Wow... you're going to the bathroom first. I feel like I'm in a romance novel.

    • Vicky: So, Mom, when's the wedding?
      Betty: It's two weeks from today.
      Sid: And we want you all to be there.
      Vicky: Well, of course we're all going to be there.
      Dave: Yeah, I can't think of any reason why we wouldn't.
      (cut scene)
      Dave: But two weeks should be enough time for me to come up with something.

    • Mike: Wait a minute, Grandma. You don't have to get married, do you?
      Betty: Mike, every day, you become more and more like your father. Stop it!

    • Dave: Hey, what's with all the primping?
      Kenny: I'm hanging out with Dylan.
      Dave: Ooh, is that your little boyfriend?
      Kenny: Not yet, but fingers crossed.
