Football --- you bet!
9 November 2003 | by (Alabama) – See all my reviews

Yeah, I remember that one line and I don't know how it became such a big thing as the show itself was no big deal. I think it was just the fact that it was a sitcom with the word beach in the title that people actually checked it out, and when it stiffed, the only thing to come out of it was the famous line. Why it stuck I have no idea, but do a Yahoo search and you'll find numerous mentions of the line and the fact that it came from this show; it is indeed a famous line if not infamous considering the dubious fate of the show. It's the only thing I or anybody else remembers about it. I wonder if the guy who said it is still saying it somewhere in some bar and nobody except the rare 40-ish guy with a good memory has a clue what he's talking about.
