When Russell is questioning Sookie about her supernatural powers, she tries to insist that she is just an unremarkable human waitress, and he responds, sarcastically, "and I am Marie of Romania." This is a quote from Dorothy Parker's acerbic poem "Comment": "Oh, life is a glorious cycle of song,/A medley of extemporanea;/And love is a thing that can never go wrong,/And I am Marie of Roumania." It is also a reference to the fact that Bram Stoker's novel 'Dracula' is set in Transylvania, now a part of modern-day Romania. See more
When Eric is riding in the car with the King of Mississippi he says "shouldn't we have taken the I12 exit?" The King replies they aren't headed to Shreveport. If they are located in Jackson, I20 takes you directly to Shreveport. I12 is located to the South and there would be no reason to go that route. See more
Aaaaand... what is your vegetable of the day?
That would be the peas.
Hmm. And... how are those prepared?
Those are dumped out of a can into a big pot and heated up. I mean where do you think you are, lady, Red Lobster?
Hey, I am paying good money to eat here. You wanna keep any of that cheap dyed hair, you better stop mouthing off to me.
