  • One is being ignored, anothe is being kissed, another beaten up by a woman and one being a pain. And who's the new guy in town? You can't say I was expecting that, but it wasn't so surprising either.

    Notes (2)

    • The character of Martin (Tyler Hoechlin) that was introduced in this episode was originally created to be "snotty and a real troublemaker," but the writers took the character in a different direction after Tyler Hoechlin was cast in the role. Also, the orginial name of the character was Joe instead of Martin when casting went out for the role in May 2003.

    • This is the first episode that Laraine Newman and Richard Lewis appear in together since the 2 part episode Holy War which aired in May 2002, however each of them did appear in one episode in Season 7.

    Trivia (9)

    • The sermon paper seems to disappear after Chandler hands it to Eric.

    • If Kevin had a dislocated shoulder and bruised ribs then him playing pool only after a couple of hours would have cause much strain and pain on his injuries.

    • NITPICK: Doesn't Ruthie realize Sam and David are little kinds who don't know better when she got mad at them for taking the coal/black licorice?

    • In the last episode, that huge guy beat up Peter. How would his face heal so fast? Seeing as how each episode is only a week apart, not all of his face would have had time to heal.

    • Why are so many characters now in the opening credits. Then why not add important people like Julie, Hank, Both sets of Grandparents, old boy/girlfriends. Most should like Robbie, John Hamilton, Shanna, Ben. But Chandler, Rox, Peter, Cecilia, now Martin now come on. Just b cause original characters have gone?
