"No Reservations" holiday show opening scene - based on what film?

I think the opening scene of the "No Reservations" holiday show is an homage to some film, but darned if I can remember what one. (He's kicked out of his apartment by a screaming wife, with "Tony Jr." standing nearby. The line that sounds familiar is where he tells the boy, "Talk to your mother....") Any thoughts?

  1. Im also wondering who the band was who did jingle bells at the end. And I want to see that vegan metal chef show!

      The bands name is "F'd Up", but not abreviated. Good show this year, though.

        The Vegan Black Metal Chef has a YouTube channel.

        Fantastic entertainment value, but unfortunately most of his dishes suck, vegan or not.

      2. Not sure, waldrons, but wasn't it a fantastic episode?? I was following Tony, his wife, and Jose Andres on Twitter during the whole episode, and that made it even better! How great was it, BTW, that it was Norah Jones singing the pooping log song in catalan! and that Samantha Brown played the crazy cat lady neighbor??

          I thought you were talking about the Catherine Zeta Jones Movie. I need to pay closer attention.

            I loved Samantha Jones in this (once I realized who it was!) -- what a great sense of humor she must have!

              Brown, Jones, what's the difference! :)

          2. Is the show available online anywhere? (for free). I check the Bravo site a couple days ago and it wasn't there.

              It's a travel channel show. I'm not sure where to find it online, except maybe in 10 minute segments on youtube....

            2. Anyone know when it will air again? Don't see it on the schedule.
