    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Drew buzzes out Kathy on the first time in Questions Only, but corrects himself. Turns out that Wayne was the first one to flub.

      • Colin walks out of Questions Only at a point when he actually said a question: 'Wouldn't you like to know?' It appears he more than likely just stumbled into it by grasping at straws.

      • In Greatest Hits, Ryan says that the second song title is My Shoe Is A Gun. But when Wayne sings it, he sings it as 'My shoe is a phone.' Weird.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • (in Greatest Hits)
        Colin: Hey, Ryan, when I say to you 'license to kill', what do you think of?
        Ryan: My ex-wife!

      • (SFAH, priest comments)
        Ryan: Way to go!
        Kathy: Hey, that was an excellent confession yesterday!
        Ryan: You may now kiss the cow--bride!
        Colin: (perturbed) Everyone's getting married. That's great, married.
        Wayne: You have a good man in your husband. I know.

      • Drew: Hey, if you want a free Whose Line Is It Anyway? t-shirt, here's what you do: Take out an old t-shirt and a black marking pen, and right across the front of it, write 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?'

      • (in Questions Only)
        Kathy: Would you...rub my neck?
        Wayne: Are you...really a man?
        Kathy: How did you know?
        (Drew mistakenly buzzes)
        Drew: Oh, I'm sorry, my mistake. Keep on going.
        Wayne: Did you hear something?
        Kathy: Are you just trying to find a way to get out of here now?
        Wayne: Do I look like I want to stay?
        Kathy: Do you not love me because I'm a man?
        Wayne: I don't know. (buzz) Now you can buzz.

      • (SFAH, prom date compliments)
        Colin: You don't sweat much for a fat girl.
        Wayne: Wow. I am gonna get some, huh?

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Shaving Cream:
        At the beginning of the show, Drew uses the term "SHAVING CREAM" a few times. To understand the meaning, it helps to know this is a reference to the song Shaving Cream by Benny Bell. Or, perhaps, a stanza: "I once watched a funny performance of a Romero/Juliet skit; where Juliet said, 'Wherefore art thou?' he replied, "I am taking a SHAVING CREAM! Be nice and clean! Shave every day and you'll always look keen!" Performed with different lyrics just about every time, this song has probably become immortalized thanks to the Dr. Demento show.

      • Blofeld:
        Wayne Brady: "I'm hoping he's a villain!"
        Blofeld was indeed a James Bond villain. Ernst Stavro Blofeld first appears in Ian Fleming's 9th book, Thunderball, as the mastermind behind the Special Executive for Counterintelligence Revenge and Extortion, aka SPECTRE. Blofeld's first film appearance is not quite as easy to explain, so, check out the URL.

      • Get Smart:
        Wayne: "My shoe is a phone...."
        Wayne changes My Shoe Is A Gun to My Shoe Is A Phone. A shoe phone was one of Maxwell Smart's trademark gadgets on the 1960's spy spoof Get Smart.
