Trivia

After Rose details the sweets she ate Dorothy responds, "I'm surprised you didn't try to kill the mayor of San Francisco." This is in reference to Dan White, who killed San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk in 1978. In his defense his lawyer said that junk food and sweets contributed to his depression. This came to be known as the "twinkie defense." See more »

Quotes

Sophia Petrillo: I don't have a story about taking advantage of a dead guy for money. I got a great story about a Moroccan and a monkey; that really comes under the heading of "Lust".
