Another photographer, Droison, is there and leaves so that they can get a clear shot. After the photographer gets the shot, he asks Droison to take a photo of the two of them.

Episode Quotes
Kelly: I didn't ask you anything yet.
Secretary: Kelly Robinson, the only good thing about playing tennis with you is that a girl gets to wear her sneakers so she can run.

Kelly: Let me have your jacket.
Scott: What?
Kelly: Your jacket, can I have your jacket to put it on the wire?
Scott: No, man. What for?
Kelly: Well, I can't use mine. I have to be beautiful for the girl.
Scott: Well, you borrowed my jacket in Hong Kong to put on the barbed wire. You owe me one.
Kelly: Are you kidding? I had that rewoven for you. You can't even see the little holes in the thing.

Waiter: Ah, those are wandering mariachis. Bring good luck.
Kelly: How far do they usually wander? Because right now they're killing the art of conversation.

Maude: You are as alien and unfathomable to me as somebody from another planet.
Saunders: Mrs. Murdock, I've never really believed you're a simple Oklahoman housewife. Now I'm sure you're not.
Maude: Allow me to tell you just who I am. I am a woman who labels you as a traitor. I can't call you my countryman 'cause you have no cause, you have no convictions, no principles.
Saunders: Merely money.
Maude: And you don't need money. What you do, you do because you despise everything. You're one of those superior beings for whom there are no laws, no rules, no commandments.
Saunders: I've never been a joiner.
Maude: In Oklahoma, when we have a diseased animals, we cut him out of the herd before he can do anymore damage.
Saunders: Mrs. Murdock, I'm afraid you've got to leave that little chore to someone else.

Kelly: Hello there, Maude. Listen, I have a question for you, Maude.
Maude: What's that?
Kelly: Why in the world would you... why in the world would you go out with us carrying a gun?
Maude: Why, in case I had to shoot you. I hope you don't think I trusted either one of you.
Kelly: Yes.

Episode Goofs
When Kelly starts to climb down the wall, the dog jumps up and the "grass" beneath him noticeably jumps, revealing it's studio grass turf.
