Trivia

William Edward Hickson is credited with popularizing the proverb that ends, "... if at first you don't succeed, try, try again." The title of this episode is in reference to this proverb. See more »

Goofs

Stan stops by to ask Dorothy to tie his bow tie. However, in several subsequent shots, the now-tied bow tie is obviously a hook-on. See more »

Quotes

Blanche Devereaux: They're not gonna redeem the bonds?
Rose Nylund: Oh, they want to, but the city would have to liquidate all its assets. St Olaf would be bankrupt.
Blanche Devereaux: And this affects me how?
Rose Nylund: Don't you understand? If we take that money, there won't be any left for the police cars, and the fire trucks, and the Children's Cheese Museum.
Blanche Devereaux: You have a museum where children go to look at cheese?
Rose Nylund: Hey, it beats learning about it in the streets.

If at Last You Do Succeed (#6.3)
19 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Stan came up with a great potato kitchen device and this time it actually works out and he becomes rich and successful. Dorothy is not reacting well to it. When he is trying to invite her to an event she keeps on refusing to go. But when she hears what he feels she ends up going and we see them kiss at the end.

A very good episode about Dorothy and Stan. I am happy to see him finally have success in life. They made a great job developing his character so that the viewer likes him and one is really happy for him.

I wonder if they are trying to get him and Dorothy back together, this wouldn't go too well in the show I think.
