  • Quotes (2)

    • Mike (to the Mayor): You're like a father to me. Mayor: It's because I had sex with your mother, right?

    • Stuart: Ohhhh, three condoms. I'm assuming this was a three pack. Paul: I will have you know, it was a five pack. Stuart: What happened to the other two? Paul: Balloon animals. Give me one of those babies, I'll whip you up a ribbed giraffe.

    Notes (1)

    • This episode is dedicated to Henry (Bud) Bostwick (1913-1999).

    Trivia (4)

    • In this episode, Carter says that Stuart is allergic to chocolate. However, in the season 2 Christmas episode titled "Miracle Near 38th Street," Stuart eats most of a nativity scene made out of chocolate, and there is no mention of an allergy.

    • Stuart is allergic to chocolate.

    • Mike says the Mayor is "53, 54 in October". Firstly, the Mayor's birthday has been in February in previous episodes.

    • Also, that phrase suggests the Mayor will turn 54 in October 2000, meaning he was born in 1946, but earlier episodes suggest he was born in 1947.

    Allusions (1)

    • The title of this episode alludes to Easy Rider, the classic 1969 road movie starring Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson.
