  • Quotes (4)

    • Carrie: Doug, did you see my blue camisol? Doug: I'd be more help if I knew what a camisol was.

    • Jimmy: (on Priority Plus) They have quality service and competitive prices: how gay is that?

    • Gina: You got me a fake ID? Carrie: That's what mentors do.

    • Arthur: (to Carrie) You're painted like a whore, and you're smoking cigarettes. The whore part I'm used to, but smoking'll kill you!

    Notes (4)

    • The German episode title is "Kampf der Giganten" (which it shares with season 3's "Paint Misbehavin'"), meaning "Battle of the Giants".

    • Adam Ferrara, who appeared as Priority Plus driver Jack, previously appeared as an IPS driver in "Entertainment Weakly."

    • In the Eastern and Central time zones this episode started late, at 8:20 ET/7:20 CT, due to a presidential address on immigration reform.

    • Though this episode featured Carrie warping the concept of mentoring youth, during its original broadcast CBS ironically ran a PSA with CSI: NY's Hill Harper touting the benefits of becoming a mentor.

    Trivia (4)

    • During the fantasy bar fight, the Priority Plus men are played by UFC fighters Randy Couture, Dan Henderson, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, and Frank Trigg.

    • During Doug's 'Matrix jump,' a wire is visible.

    • Doug gets his IPS truck stuck at a drive-thru at Rally's. However, Rally's is a name used by Checker's primarily for its stores in the Western part of the country, and in the NYC area all their restaurants operate under the Checker's name.

    • When Doug and Jack were talking in the Priority Plus truck, side shots of Doug showed a reflection behind him in storefront windows that was obviously not a delivery truck, but that of a Hollywood camera truck.

    Allusions (2)

    • Doug's fantasy about a barroom fight features an homage to The Matrix when he suspends in a midair at the center of a group of Priority Plus men.

    • The episode title is a play on the movie, Fight Club.
