Humor involving border checkpoints

Me: I'm still hung up on the title. Maybe 'Heaven or California'.
Steve: Oh--and--the cover design can be those fruit checkpoints, at the state line, with the pearly gates right above them. As a sort of parallel.
Me: *cracks up*

Makes me want to use that title. (Though it is close to a Cocteau Twins album name.)

By the way, the California plant-'n'-produce checkpoints are Sign #543 that "Frasier" was actually filmed in LA, not Seattle. They had this exchange once:

Niles: I just got in the car and started driving.
Frasier: Well, I'm glad you ended up here.
Niles: Actually, I ended up at the Oregon border-check. I had fruit in the car so I had to turn back.

Problem being, there is no border check between Oregon and Washington. WA does have signs--going back as far as I can remember--saying "Apple maggot quarantine area; do not transport homegrown fruit." But nobody actually stops you to confiscate your apples. Which CA does.
