    Notes (1)

    • Tony has said in interviews that he doesn't think the "suits" at the Travel Channel knew what he meant when he said, "fisting a Samoan" in this episode. He's convinced if they knew what that meant, they would have demanded that it was edited.

    • Tony: Martin specializes in foie gras, the fatty livers of force-fed ducks and geese, a now controversial practice. But, once you've actually eaten the stuff, enjoyed its soft, unctuous texture, its ethereally unique flavor; any concerns you might have had about Daffy or Donald eating too much, usually go right out the window. Daffy and Donald are famous cartoon ducks. Daffy is a famous black feathered rival of Warner Brothers' Bugs Bunny. While, Donald is a the white feathered friend of Disney's Mickey Mouse.
