    Trivia (3)

    • (seeing a brown and pink hamster on the table) Yuri: Where did you come from, little fellow? The hamster that Yuri finds is Bushy-Bush, Alicia's pet that she lost in the episode Educating Alicia when Hal left the cage door open.

    • When Nick knocks on the Dubois sisters' apartment door to return the playing card, we can see that the number on the door is #223. However, when he picked up the card outside, he clearly looked at a window on the first floor; also, when Pauline throws herself out the window and lands in the dumpster, Bea, who is still inside the apartment, talks to her from a first floor window. In fact, the Dubois sisters live in apartment #106.

    • When Pauline Dubois arrives at Hal and Nick's apartment to retrieve the candy bowl, the program on TV that Hal was watching was a talk show with Nellie the Performing Pig with her owner Priscilla Valentine.
