NITPICK: In this episode, Lou turns 51. Based on the year it aired (1989), that would put the year of his birth as 1938. Lou was referred to throughout the series as a Korean War veteran, but his birth year of 1938 would've made him 12 when the Korean War began (in 1950), making it impossible for him to have served during the Korean War.
