Trivia Edit

  • The celebrity taking the Jacket is clearly meant to be Michael Jackson.
  • The Title is based on the song Brother, Can You Spare a Dime.
  • While some people claimed that Cynthia Fee (who sang the Title Song) sang the rendition of Brother, Can You Spare a Dime, it's a different singer, while IMDB claims it's Judy Collins but it's a great mystery.
  • On Social Media the episode has been decided by some as a dislike due to the repetition of the joke with the ticket. But the final act is given a good detailed couple of Paragraphs on TV Tropes Tear jerking Page for the Show.
