Episode Quotes

Hilary: Will, for your information, the skeleton over there is Elizabeth Hurley and the unicorn beside her is Kevin Bacon. And they both wish you'd stop *hitting* on them.

Hilary: Why'd you come as Elton John?


  • Goof (factual errors): SPOILER: When the security guard takes Melinda away, he empties out the bag of everything she stole so that the owners can reclaim them. However, the stolen goods are also evidence of the crime and instead of being returned should have been taken in.
  • Goof (miscellaneous): Geoffrey introduces the party to Cinderella. When the girl is talking to Will you can here "Someday My Prince Will Come" in the background. This is an error because that song is from Snow White not Cinderella.


  • This is one of the few episodes to feature the opening immediately into the episode (with no prologue scene).
  • The little girl in a Rat costume who looks like Ashley is her little sister Anastasia N. Ali. She also played as Bashley in the 100th episode "What's Will Got to Do With It? (1)".
