    • Bizzy: Come on, I need another knuckle bone for my necklace.

    • Rodney: (to Darryl) It's that stuffed mushroom you made. It was like havin' a piece of God in my mouth!

    • Rodney: Do you really think I can do it, dad? Carl: If your great grandfather could do it on the beaches of Normandy, you can do it on the sound stages of the Cajun Food Channel!

    • Darryl: (talking on the phone) Hello? Oh, hi. I was just thinking about you. Yeah, we made some magic last night, didn't we? Yeah, I'm glad you liked the present. 'course I'll see you tonight. Eh, don't worry, I'll feed the wife some excuse. Okay, bye. Wanda: So! Darryl: Wanda! Wanda: Who is she, Darryl?! Darryl: Rodney?

    • Melinda: Hi Wanda, how's the baby? Wanda: She's fine. It's Darryl I'm worried about. I think he might be having an affair! Melinda: Oh, Wanda! Darryl wouldn't cheat on you! Wanda: Really? Melinda: 'course not. He's the type who's so grateful somebody actually married him, he'd never do anything to blow it.

    • Wanda: Bizzy, how could you leave us for another family? Bizzy: Look, it's not about you, okay? It's about me. Wanda: What does that mean? Bizzy: I don't know. It's what I say to blow off math geeks. Darryl: I thought that sounded familiar.

    • Rodney: (after breaking a pipe) Hey, Mom! This pipe's blowin' stinky air! Melinda: (to Wanda) Ugh, see ya tomorrow. I gotta go call the gas company.

    • Bizzy: Hey, McDaddy. I can babysit Saturday if you need me. My boyfriend's got a ton of papers to grade. Darryl: Thanks, Bizzy, but I've really come to cherish my special time with Zoe at Gumdrop Station. Bizzy: Oh yeah, yeah, I celebrated, like 200 birthdays at that place. Well if you see my dad there, tell him my mom says he's late with the checks!

    Notes (35)

    • Most of the characters in this series were not in the comic strip. They might have been added because it seems that a sitcom cannot revolve around two characters and the occasional interloper, like in the strip.

    • Elizabeth Daily is credited as E.G. Daily.

    • The five first season episodes that start with the production code 225-2 were animated at Rough Draft Studios in Los Angeles. The pilot and half the first season episodes that start with the production code 225-0 were animated at Varga Studios in Hungary. The other half were animated in Korea.

    • The series was very nearly called Bluesville at the WB's insistance. Why? Well, their executives didn't think their hip teenage viewers would want to watch a show with "baby" in the title. Their executives didn't seem to think at all, given how many papers the strip appeared in. The producers eventually managed to make their case, and the network caved in and let them keep their name. The producers didn't get to decide which episode aired first, though. This one certainly wasn't supposed to. God only knows why it did.

    • Elizabeth Daily is credited as E.G. Daily.

    • Music: "Sugar, Sugar" by The Archies

    • Elizabeth Daily is credited as E.G. Daily.

    • Music: "All Over Again" by B.B. King; "Alternative Girlfriend" by Barenaked Ladies

    Allusions (4)

    • The Beverly Hillbillies The title of this episode is a parody of the 60's show The Beverly Hillbillies.

    • Fighting Over Changing Diapers / Mortal Kombat When Wanda and Darryl argue over who should change Zoe's diaper, the scene is similar to a typical fighting game. However, judging by the format of the game, they are most likely referencing one of the more popular fighting game series, Mortal Kombat.

    • Bruce Springsteen Daryl: She just keeps going, like a Bruce Springsteen concert. This is an allusion to Springsteen's reputation for playing concerts that last 3+ hours.

    • Rodney's signs that lead up to see Zoe are a allusion to Burma-Shave's old multiple sign advertisement.
