* GeniusBonus: "Men Are People, Too," Mona seduces a guy using the Toreador Song from Carmen. Said guy, Ralph, was hired to install a skylight in the kitchen and didn't believe in mixing business with pleasure, so he had previously ignored Mona until she found out all of his likes (hard-working, family-oriented, opera lover) and pretended to be interested in the exact same things. They had one date and she dumped him for someone else, having only been interested in the challenge of a man who didn't immediately go running after her. This lead Ralph to temporarily leave the job half-finished as he was unable to be in the same house as Mona. The Toreador Song is the introduction of Escamillo, romantic rival of formerly honest, overly-dedicated soldier Don Jose. Don Jose was previously uninterested in Carmen, which made him extremely interesting to her. When he's tasked with arresting her for attacking another woman with a knife, she seduces him mainly in order to gain her freedom, convinces him to go AWOL and ultimately leaves him for someone more fun when he wants more of a commitment from her.

* NoLongerWithUs: Tony's father-in-law tells Tony that he (the father-in-law) is going to prison. But he can't bring himself to say the word "prison" and leaves off with, "I'm going to..." So Tony assumes that [[NeverSayDie "die" was the unspeakable word]] that he was having trouble with. HilarityEnsues as the father-in-law spends the whole episode enjoying the sympathy that is accorded to a terminally ill person.
