    • TRIVIA (2)

      • In Season 5, the episode "Living Dolls" premiered, in which Samantha visited Trish's models in New York and Charlie was living there. In "Life's a Ditch" in season 6, Trish supposedly just discovers Charlie at Angela's house.

      • Tony is made mad at Samantha and Charlie for trying to ditch school, to go to the beach. He asks Charlie for her mother's number. Charlie says that it's 555-6957, or at least something close to that. But how can that be. The Bower's lived in Fairfield, Connecticut which has a 203 area code, and Charlie's mom lived in Brooklyn, which has a 718 area code. Tony never dialed the area code.

    • QUOTES (10)

      • Mona: They're doing a dog food ad here. Dog's don't use appliances.
        Tony: You see, Mona, that's how much you know. Scooby-Doo has a microwave.

      • Angela: Trish just recommended one of her models that I think will be perfect for the ad.
        Tony: Great, great, as long as she doesn't clash with my kitchen.
        Trish: You'll love her Tony, her eyes pick up the blue in your Brillo pad.

      • Tony: By the way, Trish, does your agency ever handle the olive-skinned, Mediterranean, Roman god type?
        Angela: Tony, I'm sure she's got a fig leaf with your name on it.
        Tony: Angela, the way you talk.

      • Charlie: Look, I just came here to see if an old friend was interested in having a little fun, that's all.
        Samantha: What kind of fun are we talking about?
        Charlie: Fun fun. You're allowed to have fun out here in happy-swell meadows, aren't you?

      • Angela: I know it's hard to believe, but did you know that when I was in high school, I had to write a 15-page paper on Henry James? I hated Henry James so much that I could only write 14 pages. Do you know what I did? I shortened the margins by a quarter of an inch, I retyped the entire paper, and I handed it in as if it were a real 15-page paper.
        Tony: Ooo, Angela Bower, rebel typist.

      • Tony: I used to live for those teacher conference days. Those, snow storms, and them Jewish holidays.

      • Mona: This is no longer an obsession; it's a twisted cry for help.

      • Mona: Look, let's get another bed, put it in my place, she can stay with me for a while. I hardly ever sleep there anyway.

      • Angela: Doesn't she have any other relatives?
        Tony: Yeah, she's has one, but he's a horse's behind.
        Angela: Tony, you're talking about her family.
        Tony: No, no, he really is a horse's behind. He works in a traveling circus and he plays the backside of a horse.
        Mona: Where does he put his head?

      • Samantha: Yea, look I'm really sorry you couldn't stay here, but you know my dad. I'm so disappointed in him.
        Charlie: Oh yea, you should be. A guy who moves you to paradise, gives you everything you need, helps a kid he hardly knows...what a bum. You know I'd forget fathers day if I were you.
