Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Although there was no official "Drew Game" he was sung to during the last game.

    • At the beginning of Helping Hands you see Wayne come over to help Whoopi put on her pirate costume then the camera changes positions, and then you see Wayne already back at his seat two seconds later.

    • This was the second regular episode (not counting the season 2/3 special) that did not have a declared winner. There was no "Drew game," yet the credit reading was not named a "winner's game," like it had been for the two shows that had no Drew game in season 4. (The first to have no winner was the Sid Caesar episode.)

    • (During Two Line Vocabulary)
      Whoopi: (Looking at her gun) That's impossible.
      Colin: It's not impossible... why are you so negative?!
      Whoopi: Have you thought it through?
      Colin: Look...
      Ryan: What is that?
      Colin: All right, you're right.
      I should be calm, I'm the leader, alright?
      Ryan: I'm really in the mood.
      Whoopi: That's impossible.
      Colin: It's not impossible, if he thinks he's in the mood, let him do it.
      Whoopi: (Getting in Colin's face) Have you thought this through?
      Colin: Look, you ask me that one more time, I'm ripping your face off!
      Whoopi: (In a mocking tone) That's impossible!

    • (During Two Line Vocabulary)
      Whoopi: Have you thought this through?
      Colin: Yes! That's why I brought... the gun.
      Ryan: What is that?
      Whoopi: (Pointing at the gun Colin is imitating) That's impossible!
      Colin: It's a gun, it's not! Alright, you have your gun. Here, this one's for you. (Hands Whoopi a gun)
      Ryan: What is that?
      Colin: It's a gun! It's like yours except smaller!
      Ryan I'm really in the mood!
      Colin: Okay.

    • (During Two Line Vocabulary)
      Colin: Alright people, stay together. Remember, these aliens are tricky.
      Ryan: What is that?
      Whoopi: Have you thought this through?
      Colin: Well... no, but, as your leader, I must appear as though I have.
      Whoopi: That's impossible.
      Colin: Yes... it's not impossible!
      Ryan: (Looking at his finger) What is that?
      Colin: That's your finger! It's alright, it's alright, we all have them! Now remember, once these things get close to you, their... things come out, they suck your brain, and you become a robot.
      Ryan: (Sarcastically) Oh, I'm really in the mood.
      Colin: I know, I'm not in the mood either! That's why we have to stop them!

    • (after Questions Only)
