I’m not a jukebox.

In S1E3, the stressed double-twin-wedding-mother-of-the-bride is giving Drella the Harpist her daughters’ music preferences for the wedding. She says, “Now Jackie wants Samuel Barber, John Cage, and Philip Glass, and Jessica wants Shania Twain’s ‘I Feel Like a Woman.'” Drella, nose in the air, responds, “I’m not a jukebox.” The MOB protests, Drella defends her honor as a musician, and the MOB eventually wins out by offering an extra $100. Without a moment’s hesitation, Drella responds, “You just got yourself a jukebox.”

Samuel Barber, John Cage, and Philip Glass are all 20th century American composers.

Shania Twain, in contrast, is a country pop singer who was very popular in the 1990’s and early 2000’s. The song that the Mother-of-the-Brides was thinking of is actually called “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” It was realeased in 1997 and won a Grammy in 2000.
