A nebbish of a morgue attendant gets shunted back to the night shift where he is shackled with an obnoxious neophyte partner who dreams of the "one great idea" for success. His life takes a bizarre turn when a prostitute neighbour complains about the loss of her pimp.

The name of the pimp who is murdered at the beginning of the film, Franklin Delano Roosevelt Jones, is also the name of a song written by Harold Rome in the late 1930s, recorded by Judy Garland among many others, which celebrated the arrival of a new baby of that name in the Jones household.

When Belinda comes to Chuck's to make breakfast she asks what type of eggs he wants and he says scrambled. She then starts making fried eggs, but when the eggs are done she magically pours scrambled eggs out of the same pan.
It is true that she does start off with the eggs as sunny side up style, but as Chuck is talking to his Fiance you can see the shadow of Belinda using the spatula to mix up the eggs and then pours the scrambled eggs into her and Chuck's plate. Even the eggs don't look that well scrambled. See more
