Quotes (8)

  • Dale: Bill! What a relief. I dropped my keys in the back of the meat freezer and I need someone well-insulated to fish them out for me. Bill: I'm kinda the go-to guy for stuff like this.

  • (Bill has invited Dale to his 'family' dinner with Charlene and Kate) Dale: Good choice on the mashed potatoes, Kate. Tasty, and a fun place to sculpt your subconscious thoughts.

  • Hank: How could Kate be your daughter? Dale: As you may recall, I learned some time ago that Joseph was conceived while I was away from Nancy, an anomaly that can only be explained by alien gene traders covertly planting my DNA into my sleeping wife. Hank: Uh... right... Dale: After impregnating Nancy, the aliens must have then left my genetic material with Charlene in the hopes of engineering a master race, with me as the foundation. The "how" is simple enough. It's the "why" that troubles me.

  • Dale: John Redcorn, I bet you could romance a woman out of a relationship with a giant doofus. John Redcorn: Dale, are you asking me to steal your friend's companion? Dale: I don't want my child raised by an idiot. John Redcorn: Yes, it's very difficult to watch an idiot raise your child.

  • Dale: I'd like to shatter Bill's happiness in a way that doesn't leave him all mopey.

  • Hank: So, Bill, how's life as a not entirely legal guardian?

  • Dale: (to Bill) So, Charlene's moving in, huh? Have you told her about your idiosyncrasies? Like your fear of floss? And how you use your loofah for non-loofah purposes?

  • Dale: A woman who's perfect for Bill? (shudders) That's a disturbing image.

Notes (3)

  • The original title of this episode was "Three Men and a Bastard", but (mostly likely due to the word bastard), was changed by Fox. On Adult Swim and cable guides, it is still referred to with the original name.

  • The song playing on the radio in John Redcorn's car is "Nothing But a Good Time" by Poison.

  • Brittany Murphy voices Kate in this episode, using the same voice she used for pre-pubucent Joseph.

Trivia (3)

  • Tagline: "Wha ha ha ha ha ha" -Joseph

  • Luanne does not have any lines in this episode.

  • Dale crushes a beer can and throws it on the ground. Then in the wide shot the beer can cannot be seen.

Allusions (2)

  • Dale: Have you seen the 1987 film "The Stepfather", where a seemingly loving man cozies up to a single mother only to go nuts and kill everyone? It stars the bald guy from lost.

    The movie Dale referring to is in fact real, and does star Terry O'Quinn, who was on Lost.

  • Dale: (laughing) Just remembered a funny Sniglet. Sniglets is a book by comedian Rich Hall as a collection of "any word that doesn't appear in the dictionary, but should".
