(it probably just means you're in some kind of hunting lodge for rich  
weirdos)

and if one can believe Wikipedia, the network was so afraid of the  
"fonz" character from "Happy Days" that they very reluctantly told  
the producers that perhaps it would be OK if he wore a leather jacket  
— but only in scenes that actually involved a motorcycle.  Said  
producers, being hip rebels, at least for their times, promptly  
responded by making sure there was a motorcycle in *every* Fonz scene  
— even indoors.
