Episode Quotes
Pusher: Not just kids, eh?
Mel Bracken: Uh-uh. Everyone. Happiness, that's what everyone wants, isn't it? Happiness.. and that's what we supply.

Jim: Your move is the most unpredictable, Dana, but it is the key. He'll be tough. He's as strait-laced as they come and he's never had a date with another woman.
Dana: I understand. Really moral. All he does is kill a couple of kids now and then.

C.W. Cameron: You know, young lady, you look very familiar.
Dana: Oh, well, do you ever stay up for the late show?
Bunny Cameron: Oh, we rarely stay up late for anything.

Episode Goofs
For some reason, the tape player that Jim picks up for his briefing is almost entirely out of tape.

Although Barney originally calls Jim and tells him there are only ten cans of peanuts, when Willy shows up with the fake boxes, there are clearly more, about 15d...

and an even larger number can be seen later at Mel's warehouse when Barney makes the delivery.
