Goofs

When Herb leans out the window and tells Les, "You know, I thought about it and it's okay if you're gay," the word "gay" doesn't match his lip movement. He actually said, "it's ok if you're a homo." See more »

Quotes

[last lines]
Les Nessman: The doctor says that Herb can go home in a week.
Jennifer Marlowe: I know, I saw him too.
Les Nessman: Did he seem all right to you?
Jennifer Marlowe: As well as can be expected.
Les Nessman: Well, I think he must have hit that net head-first. He kept asking me the same question over and over again. This is pretty complicated, but he wanted to know: if a guy dates a girl who used to be a guy, but isn't anymore, what does that make the guy who dates the girl who used to be a guy?
[Jennifer looks at Johnny]
Dr. Johnny Fever: It's a toughy.
