Episode Quotes
Max: I can't breathe through my nose.
Synclaire: I know what you mean, Max. Khadijah, remember the time I got those two marbles stuck up my nostrils?
Khadijah: That's the last magic show we ever did!

Khadijah: She's allergic to the cat.
Regine: Here's a thought: get away from the cat.
Max: I can't.
Regine: Why not? You're driving me crazy!
Max: Look at that. You answered your own question.

Overton: Next time something I build falls apart, it could be on top of Regine...or somebody important.

Kyle: Well Overton, if you wanted to avoid hurting people, this certainly is the place. Serving up alcohol. Selling cigarettes. Just kind of killing them slowly, aren't you?

Cultural References
Episode Title: The Handyman Can

The title is a play on the lyric "the candy man can," from the Sammy Davis, Jr. song "The Candy Man."

Kyle: (singing) What's new, pussycat? Whoa, whoa!

Kyle sings a bit of "What's New, Pussycat?" by Tom Jones at the cat's funeral.

Synclaire: Hey everyone!
Bar Customers: Synclaire!

The customers yelling out Synclaire's name upon her entrance is a reference to the 1982-93 NBC sitcom Cheers. When Norm Peterson (George Wendt) entered Cheers, the other patrons would always greet him by shouting his name.

Khadijah: Synclaire, next time you decide to cat-sit, could you find a feline that didn't escape from a Stephen King novel?

A reference to the popular horror writer.
