What is Beth's last name?

She doesn't have one, which she states in NewsRadio: Freaky Friday (#5.20)

This phrase was used twice in the series, first by Lisa in NewsRadio: Christmas (#3.10) who believes it may be the title of the computer game her brother created. It is used again in the appropriately-titled NewsRadio: Super Karate Monkey Death Car (#4.4) where it is read by Mr. James from his English-to-Japanese-back-to-English book "Macho Business Donkey Wrestler."

Two months.

Between the ages of 17 and 19, Lisa was arrested seven times. The offenses she told her co-workers about are: 1) She stole a car because her car broke down and she was afraid she'd be late for her SAT test, 2) she broke into a library because she had a history test the next day and the only copy of the Federalist Papers she had was abridged, and for her Federal offense 3) she broke into a Post Office because she hadn't yet received any of her college acceptance letters.

Choo Choo and Mitt Mitt. His Siamese cat that passed away was named Mr. T.J. McWhiskers.

Matthew is a dentist. He opened his own dental practice in 1992 but left out of boredom to pursue his "passion": radio journalism.

He drank too much punch and Billy Beer, peed in the Rose Garden, called Rosalind Carter "Hot lips," and then stole a couch from the Lincoln bedroom.

Evelyn (pronounced "Eavelyn")

According to DVD commentary, several of the writers are fans of his show and have incorporated mentions in certain episodes. "Baba booey" is used several times as a joke, including the season 4 credits where Khandi Alexander as Catherine draws the words over a picture of Bill McNeil's face. Also, in an early season 4 episode, Dave explains that, even though Matthew won employee of the month, the majority actually voted for "Baba booey".

NewsRadio: Jumper (#4.1) has Lisa suggesting that if the suicidal Jon Lovitz character were rescued by Janet Reno in a blimp, they could beat Howard Stern's ratings.
