Quotes

Dick Pepperfield: Lou, would you mind putting out that cigarette? It's very unprofessional.
Lou Redwood: No. I like to smoke when I drink.


Goofs

In the beginning, announcer Dick Pepperfield says "That little kid from the Jackson 5, he scares me too. Oh mark my words, Lou, there is something creepy about that young man." He may have been referring to Randy Jackson, the youngest (14 or 15), shortest, and only child member of The Jacksons. The Jackson 5 disbanded in 1975, and reformed as The Jacksons in 1976. Youngest sibling Randy replaced Jermaine Jackson, who left for a solo career. In 1976, Michael Jackson, the lead singer and second youngest sibling (17 or 18) was the lead singer of The Jacksons.
