    Notes (3)

    • The song Hank sings in the bathroom is "Travelin' Man" by Ricky Nelson. The song hear in John Redcorn's car is "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" by Pat Benatar.

    • The reason Luanne's hair is shorter in this episode, whereas it was long in the previous two is because this was produced earlier then those ones, so she was still growing it out at this point.

    • Hank mentions that you can swim with the Dolphins at La Grunta. This becomes a major plot point in a later episode. He also mentions there being a museum of miniatures, which is also later brought up.

    Trivia (7)

    • After Hank returns from the permit office and he and Bobby are in the car, Hank has his seat belt on and his hands on the steering wheel. However in the very next shot his seat belt is completely off without moving his hands.

    • When Hank Hill decides to take his son, Bobby, to shoot a deer at a local recreational resort named La Grunta, Hank shows Bobby what is supposedly a La Grunta brochure, but the description at the bottom-right of the brochure states that the text therein is referring to the "Shropshire House Inn & Resort."

    • Tagline: "I'm drivin' the hell out of this truck!" - Bobby
