Chrissie makes a couple of comments on the amount of furniture in the condo and each reflects the amount she and Marianne were wearing. When Chrissie says there was no furniture the girls were in their bikinis and when she noted that there was furniture later on towards the end of the movie, the girls were fully covered up.

When Mother found Chrissie pretending to be pregnant he said. "Let me guess - Joe's pregnant girlfriend." This was a reference to the earlier scene when Chrissie and Marianne played a prank on Mother and Joe by making out with them, but Chrissie was making out with Mother, not Joe. See more »
Well, plenty of film producers during the 1980s, eager to capitalize on the success of Animal House, released hilarious movies that all had the same basic formula: good natured but mischievous college kids, naked coeds, a minimal plot, and plenty of gut bursting comedy scenes. Fraternity Vacation, like its predecessors (Porky's, Caddyshack, Revenge of the Nerds) has all of this and more, this time in opulent Palm Springs. It's such a shame that film critics turn their noses up at these fine flics and instead praise inferior "dramatic comedies" for their alleged intellectual complexity, when in reality it is political opinions and pressure which shape their faulty viewpoints. I would much rather watch a good natured comedy like this than something like Kramer vs Kramer, Mrs Doubtfire, or Scent of a Woman, all of which are excessively hyped because of their issue based themes. Fraternity Vacation has everything that's fun: love, friendship, light sex, beer drinking, jokes, music, and no violence or heavy mood dampeners (of which all true comedies are devoid). The actors are all talented and pleasing to watch. Fraternity Vacation is often shown on network tv, premium cable and basic cable, although on tv it is heavily edited (I recommend the unedited version). I urge anyone who hasn't seen it but loves good comedy to watch Fraternity Vacation, it's definitely a fun, witty film.
