    Notes (1)

    • This is one of the few times in the post-Radar era where Klinger is in a dress. He puts it on when he is trying to hide from Mrs. Li.

    Trivia (1)

    • When Klinger comes to the Swamp to hide, Charles comments that he thought Klinger had given up dresses. Klinger states directly that (except for emergencies) he has done so.

    Allusions (1)

    • When Charles says, "Something's rotten in the state of Ouijongbu," he's paraphrasing a line from Shakespeare's Hamlet. In the first act, a guard sees the ghost of Hamlet's father and says, "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark."
