Did You Know?


When Alan Shore, dancing with Danny Crane, says "Anything Danny Crane can do, I can do backwards and wearing high heels", he is quoting a comic strip (Frank and Ernest, created by Bob Thaves) about Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. The original line - in the 1982 cartoon - was "Sure he was great, but don't forget that Ginger Rogers did everything he did, ...backwards and in high heels." See more »
