    • Andy: You blew all my money on this stupid car? Kevin: It's not your money, it's our money. (Andy slaps him) Ow, that hurt. Andy: It's not your pain, it's our pain. Kevin: Well, Mom always said we should share. (He slaps Andy back)

    • Andy: What you hear is Beethoven's 5th, while what I hear is "Red, red, red blue". Kevin: It's people like you who made Beethoven go deaf.

    • Andy: (watching TV) Lousy History Channel. Always World War Two, nothing about pirates or cavemen. That's history too, dammit! Kevin: Ahh, feeling blue? We could balance the checkbook together - that's always a funk buster for me! Andy: Thanks, but I can bust my own funk.

    • Andy: I am so sick of Ron, I'm 24, my life should be about having fun, not taking crap from that bastard. Gwen: Why don't you just attack him and get it over with? Andy: I don't know, chalk it up to that unique mix of poverty and spinelessness. Without it, the service sector wouldn't exist.

    • Ron: I told you, knock before you come in here.
      Andy
      : I did knock. You yelled, "Party time!," and then there was silence.

    Notes (4)

    • This is the last appearance of Ron.

    • "In A Gadda Da Vida" by Iron Butterfly plays inside the van Gwen gets in at the toll booth.

    • The colors for Beethoven 5th was red, red, red, blue.

    • The song being played in the piano store is "Spanish Flea."

    Trivia (2)

    • On the inside cover of the DVD a commentary is listed for this episode under the summary. Yet it has none. This was a typo by the printer who put it under part 1 instead of part 2.

    • When Keven and Andy are at the toll both, it shows that only one lane is open. However, when Gwen gets out of the car to hitchhike, suddenly all lanes are open and apparently the cones blocking them dissappeared.

    • Andy: Big Ally McDeal This is obviously a spoof of the tv show Ally McBeal
