Blue and particularly The Last Time I Saw Richard figure prominently in this comedy. The main character, who is going through a bit of a mid-life crisis, quotes the verse that begins "Richard got married to a figure skater" and talks about how he is Richard -- that's his life. Dennis: That's me. Pauline: Who? Dennis: Us. You're the figure skater and I'm Richard. Pauline: But you're Dennis. Dennis: And Richard. Richard, That's ME. Pauline: Dennis, I don't know what you're on about. But if you're going to change your name it's not going to be Richard. I'm not having people rushing around this bungalow shouting out "Dick."
