Episode Quotes

Emily Gilmore: Some overused sayings are true, like children should be seen and not heard.
Lorelai Gilmore: Mother knows best.
Emily Gilmore: If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

Mistakes/Goofs

  • Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Richard's doctor says he got a BA from Yale before going on to Harvard Medical School. A BA is a Bachelor of the Arts and it's unlikely to be what his undergraduate degree is. He would have earned a BS (Bachelor of Science).

Trivia

  • The episode title refers to a quote attributed to W.C. Fields. It's said that Fields joked that his epitaph should read, "On the Whole, I'd Rather Be in Philadelphia", a play on an old vaudeville joke that comedians would rather be dead than play Philadelphia. Later, Ronald Reagan made the same joke in his hospital room after an assassination attempt against him. He was scheduled to visit Philadelphia on the day of the shooting and told his nurse, "All in all, I'd rather be in Philadelphia."
