Rex: My wife has me between a rock and a hard place.
Miles Massey: That's her job. You should respect that.



When Marylin Rexroth's ex-husband dies, she inherits his money because he had not removed her from his will after divorcing her. Under California Probate Code ยง 6122(a)(1), the dissolution of a marriage automatically revokes any disposition or appointment of property made by the will to the former spouse.



Before marrying "Doyle", Marilyn says she wants to erase every suspicion from his mind, a reference to the Elvis song "Suspicious Minds" that is used during the title sequence.
