  • Quotes (11)

    • Buster: (in the trunk of the car) Mother, when you see this videotape, you will know that I left. Not out of cowardice, but out of -- (big yawn) Man, it's tired in here. (falls asleep)

    • Michael: Ann's here? George Michael: Yeah, I invited her. You said you wanted to spend some time with her. You said I was being an Ann-Hog. Michael: Ann-Hog's coming?

    • Buster: Make love in your own hand, mother!

    • George Michael: Way to plant, Ann. Michael: George Michael, why don’t you and Plant just wait in the stair-car?

    • Gob: Show tonight? Tobias: Well, I won’t know officially until 8:01. But I figured if I Blue myself early, I’d be nice and relaxed for a 9:00 dinner reservation.

    Notes (2)

    • Judy Greer (Kitty") received the "and" credit, and she had no lines.

    • The Mexicans in the 1927 silent movie are Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, and Tony Hale dressed up as Mexicans. Tony is playing the piano. Will is doing the chicken dance. Jason is insulting Will for doing his chicken dance.

    Trivia (7)

    • The poster that drops off the wall and Gob says to "just leave it" carries the slogan 'never give up'.

    • Buster comments that he used to have a shirt just like the one the child is wearing, and the narrator said that it was Buster's. In fact, Buster wore that shirt in the episode "Staff Infection".

    • During the silent film, one of the Mexicans said "Usted baila como un hombre que vive como mujer" and it was translated with subtitles as "You dance like a homosexual", but the correct translation would be "You dance like a man who lives like a woman".

    • In the shot when Lindsay and George Michael are driving off, followed by Ice, the shot was flipped. The license plate is mirrored, as is the church in the background.

    • Foreshadowing upcoming episodes: When Buster sees his hand chair at Lupe's house, he says "I never thought I'd miss a hand this much" foreshadowing his loss of his hand.
