  • Trivia (3)

    • Paul mentioned he was at a Boston concert in Chicago in 1979. Boston did in fact play in Chicago that year for their "Don't Look Back" tour on two nights, on March 15 and 16, 1979 at Chicago Stadium.

    • In "The Great Pretender", Paul admitted he lost his virginity at the age of 33, yet in this episode, he states the year was 1979. If he were 33 that year, that would make him at least 53 by this time, which would be impossible since in "Deaf Becomes Her", he stated he was 35.

    • If The Mayor doesn't know what a CD is, why does he have a CD player on his desk?
