Added DiffLines:

* RecycledSoundtrack: The "Working Girl March" by Dave Grusin was recycled by Creator/MarkGoodson Production for three different pilots: 1983's ''Star Words'' and ''Series/BodyLanguage'', and 1986's ''On A Roll''. Only ''Body Language'' went to series and as a result, Edd Kalehoff composed a SuspiciouslySimilarSong (and in turn, the ticket plug that Kalehoff composed would be reused for '' Classic Series/{{Concentration}}'' starting in 1987).

-->'''George:''' I can't even set you up for a commercial. You played a tomato for 30 seconds - they went a half a day over schedule because you wouldn't sit down.
-->'''Michael:''' Of course. It was illogical.
-->'''George:''' YOU WERE A TOMATO! A tomato doesn't have logic! A tomato can't move!
-->'''Michael:''' That's what I said! So if he can't move, how's he gonna sit down, George? I was a stand-up tomato: a juicy, sexy, beefsteak tomato. Nobody does vegetables like me. I did an evening of vegetables off-Broadway. I did the best tomato, the best cucumber... I did an endive salad that knocked the critics on their ass.
