    • Bill: Hey you two. Dave: Hey what do you mean, "Hey us two?" Bill: Well I'll count again but I think I'll get the same result.

    • Mr. James: Boy do I love good parties. Do you love a good party, Joe? Joe: That's why I went to college sir. That's also why I didn't graduate. Mr. James: Yeah me neither, so what?

    • Bill: Guys, I'm throwing a little surprise birthday party for Catherine at the 12:46 commercial break. We're back on the air at 12:48 which gives us two minutes for cake, punch, small talk. That kind of thing. I suggest if you're interested you RSVP now.

    • Beth: Listen, Dave. Why don't you and Lisa just bury the hatchet? Dave: Oh I'd love to but apparently Lisa thinks she should have my job. Beth: Oh I get it. When a woman is ambitious, she's pushy. But when a man is ambitious-- Dave: (interrupts) Oh Beth don't go into that. Beth: Yeah you're right I was actually starting to make myself a little sick.

    Notes (2)

    • Joe Rogan always thought that he was the token beefcake, leading to excuses from the writers for him to take off his shirt.

    • Maura Tierney is wearing a padded bra in this episode. The costumer responsible for season one was addicted to padding shoulders, bras, and pecs. The cast couldn't figure out why.

    Trivia (3)

    • Notice that there is no glass in the doors. The cameras had a hard time shooting in the radio booth because of the glare coming off the glass.

    • Originally Bill and Catherine were supposed to be more of a relationship arc, more emphasis about Joe and his van, and Beth sleeping with all the delivery men that come into the office.

    • One of the few times that Matthew actually makes it on the air, reporting.

    • The name "Joey Buttafuco" was later used as a name for a character on The Sopranos.
