    Trivia (38)

    • Phil and Don Vito's breakfast: 2 Griddles, 2 Orange Juice, 2 Sausages, 1 Egg Muffin, 1 Bacon, 1 #1 with Coffee, and 2 Extra Hash Browns.

    • If April was so concerned about her house, why did she trust Jenn to take care of Bam and the house? Don Vito didn't go with April and Phil, maybe he would have been a better choice.

    • At the restaurant festival Phil eats: Shrimp Banana Foster Pepperoni Pizza A Cow Zone Funnel Cake Smoked Pig Beef A Burrito A Hamburger and a F@#!#n Kabob

    • Raab and Bam found the following in Phil's study: Candy Bars Nachos Pop Tarts Ghetto Candies Mustard and Milk Chocolate CDs

    • During the scene where Bam Margera and Compton Ass Terry are dancing to rap music, a rap song is playing. On the TV version, 'Got Some Teeth' by Obie Trice is playing, but on the DVD and UMD version of the episode 'Junkman' by Aceyalone is playing.

    • Raab's marrige to "Debo" was fake. Also, Phil and April didn't remarry. Debo is Russian, but is actually a short-haired brunette who was in on it the whole time. Bam set it up. The "russianhuskies" site is real, but you can't actually order a bride. The minister was fake, so obviously, Raab & "Debo" aren't (still) together.

    • According to the DVD commentary, the hotel bill was $40,000.

    • When they are at the tuxedo shop, the screen comes up and says Raab gets fancy, and then after it when Bam is talking about the tux being white he says Raab is gonna be dirt bag filthy. when they have that typed at the bottom of the screen, it says "Rabb" instead of "Raab".
