    • Peggy: Home Ec is not going to turn Bobby into a sissy. In prison movies, the toughest characters always work in the kitchen.

    • Peggy: Yes, Bobby, I can handle the heat, so get out of my kitchen. Because with pork, the slightest mistake could kill us all.

    • Hank (seeing Bobby with cheerleader outfit): There better be a naked cheerleader under your bed!

    Notes (1)

    • Originally scheduled to air on November 18th, 2001. Was fed via satellite that morning, even. Football ran over, so the majority of the country didn't see it. But the episode WAS seen then on the West Coast and in Canada.

    Trivia (6)

    • It's revealed in this episode that Peggy and Hank actually have two smaller beds they just put together.

    • Tagline: "Boy, that cheese. Mm." -Hank
      This is not a line actually said in the episode, but rather is a reference to an earlier scene. This is the third time a line not in the episode itself is used, but the first time it is not an extension of the final scene.

    • Luanne does not appear in this episode.

    • After Hank calls Bobby into the room to talk about the woman's magazine Peggy discovered, you can see Peggy's hair is a little messed but nothing in it. A few shots after Hank asks Bobby about making the turkey there is a close up shot of Peggy and she has a few stains in her hair, which disappear in the next shot. The stains look very similar to the ones she gets a little later on when she falls on the turkey.

    • At the beginning when Peggy is doing laundry, she takes out some clothes, and some are whites, while others are colors and even has a pair of jeans in there, which she forgets. It seems odd she wouldn't sort the clothes.
