Episode Quotes
Jay: Hey, Shorty told me about this restaurant in Vegas that's got a three-story wine tower right in the middle of it. The guy who gets your wine flies around on a wire.
Gloria: Like the "Peter Pan".
Jay: No. Not like the "Peter Pan". This is a high-end place.
Gloria: Oh, yeah, because all the finest restaurants in the world have people flying around on wires.

Cameron: I love the throwback to the '60s.
Mitchell: Although if this was the '60s, we'd be a couple of "confirmed bachelors," and Lily would be a yorkie.
Amelia: And I'd still be trapped in a loveless marriage.
