Karen Walker: Oh, my god! Do you know what he would love? Oh! What is that deal down in the Mediterranean where you can charter a yacht with another couple for a week? You know, 7-person cruise, they take you up the Italian Riviera. Oh, what is the name of that boat?! Will Truman: Oh, I know. The S.S. Lower Your Dosage. Jack McFarland: Hey, look, I'm Cher... circa 1978. [Standing in front of a display of hay] My daughter's a what?! Grace: You know what my Aunt Pescha would say if she were in this room right now? Will: "Why the hell did my parents name me Pescha"? Sam: The last time I saw you, you were THIS big... but you were on a hill and I was far away. Grace: Will, call your brother. Michael Corleone forgave Fredo, right? Will Truman: Yeah, that was right before he had him taken out to the lake, and SHOT! Grace: Yeah, but the important thing is that he forgave him. Will Truman: No, I think the important thing to Fredo is, he GOT SHOT!


- This episode is in reference to when Will told his brother what he thought of his soon-to-be wife. With only a handful of script ideas and a push from the network to create a two-parter, David & Max took from the pilot and create these two episodes.
