  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • The title is a spoof of "Girls Gone Wild"

    • When Cate says to Paul "Hey, Magnum, where T.C" she was referring to the 80's show Magnum P.I with Tom Selleck. And T.C is actor Roger E. Mosley.

    • Paul: "I'm two different colors! I look like one of Garth Brooks's shirts!"
      Paul says his sunburn make him look like Garth Brooks's shirt. One of Garth's trademarks is wearing colorful shirts in concert.
