Episode Quotes
Gidget: (on the telephone, upon just learning she has won a free dance lesson) Joy unconfined! (grimaces) A free dance lesson.
Mark Hillman: (on the telephone, brightly) That's right! Absolutely free!
Gidget: How can you say that to a girl with a wooden leg? (hangs up)

Anne: (dismissing Larue summarily) Larue, it's almost dinnertime.
Larue: (with mock indignation) A touch of the whip. I go!

Larue: (on the telephone to Gidget, watching John from afar as he rushes away on his bicycle) This is double O seven. Leadfinger just blasted off.

James Bond or 'double O seven' (007) is fictional British agent created in 1952 by author Ian Fleming. He was noted for employing fanciful, high-tech gadgetry in his escapades, living life dangerously, and for wooing beautiful but treacherous women. His name is synonomous in pop culture with agent or spy. Several of the Bond novels by Fleming have been made into films with Bond being portrayed by Sean Connery, Roger Moore, and others. 'Leadfinger' is a play on the name of Bond's adversary Goldfinger.
