A Day of Nick at Night

Here are some little inside jokes that have been worked into TV shows:

Roseanne -- "Corn" is mentioned in every episode.

Seinfeld -- There is a reference to Superman in every episode.

Cheers -- The real-life wife of George Wendt did the voice of Norm's unseen wife Vera.

Newhart -- Larry, of Larry, Darryl, and Darryl, always wore a quarter in his ear.

All in the Family -- The line in the theme song is "Gee, our old La Salle ran great" -- Carroll O'Connor and Jean Stapleton purposely slurred the line so it is difficult to understand. The La Salle was a type of Cadillac produced in the 1930's.

I love stuff like this...great post. I noticed they always show that Superman statue in Jerry's kitchen. <==Kramer wore clothes on size too big for Michael Richards; George wore clothes one size too small for Jason Alexander (to help make him look nerdier).

P.S. Thanks for the heads up on Technorati...I hardly ever go there, and I had no idea. <==you are the only you in Missouri, so I thought I had better let you know

P.S.S. I'm very thankful, but not enough to clean your gutters. <==rat boy

I agree with Phoenix..great post! I love these little tidbits of trivia :) I thought corn was eaten in every episode Roseanne. <== here's another, once introduced, David and Mark appear in more episodes that Darlene and Becky

Siren, babe, you're thinking of corn chips.
here's one from Roseanne that's both sad and nice: When Glenn Quinn (Mark) died in 2002 (drugs), he had burned through his Roseanne money -- so Michael Fishman (D.J.) stepped up and paid for his funeral.
