Midge Maisel has the perfect life. She is supportive of her husband's dream of becoming a stand up comic until he bombs on stage and blames her, leading Midge back to the comedy club and an act that might change her life.
Midge proudly tells the butcher the Rabbi is coming to dinner. The next customer orders pork chops, which means the butcher is not a kosher butcher. If the Rabbi knew this, he would not come to dinner.
I don't mind being alone. I just do not want to be insignificant.
A key plot point to the episode which is set in April 1958 is Joel Maisel ripping off Bob Newhart's famous "Abe Lincoln vs. Madison Avenue" routine, and Newhart is heard performing the routine on "The Ed Sullivan Show". However, Bob Newhart did not release his debut album - which includes that routine - until May 1960, and his first "Sullivan" appearance was in November 1960.
