    • Judge: Present the next filthy evildoer, please. Stenographer: "Evildoer", Your Honor? Judge: Oh, I did it again, didn't I? I mean the next, uh, defendant.

    • Fran: I made your favorite dinner. Charlene: You knew we were coming back tonight? Fran: I made it every night. Earl: Yep, 80 consecutive nights of meatloaf, and nobody prayed for your safe return home, more than me.

    • Charlene: They couldn't throw us off the end of the world because there isn't an end. We walked all the way around it.

    Allusions (2)

    • 80 Days: This is a reference to Jules Verne's book Around the World in 80 Days.

    • Christopher Columbus: Christopher Columbus: The World Is Round This episode was actually the example of the history of when Christopher Columbus wanted to sail across the world to prove that the world was round. But that was actually a big lie back then because Columbus sailed and was in America and accused that he was in India when he meet the Natives and started to torture them.
