  • Trivia

    • Patrick's having a large penis is the basis for a lot of jokes on the show, yet the actual size is never really mentioned. However, according to the packing of the "Junior Patrick", a vibrator made in the image of Patrick's penis by one of his former girlfriends, it is supposed to be at least 10 inches.

    • During the masturbation discussion, Jeff reminisces: "you're shaking the caravan, Jeffrey!". At the porn store, we hear that there's a whole shipment to go to "Caravan Shaker".

    • The quote that they use in this episode is from a movie called "To Have and Have Not.", and is spoken by Lauren Bacall to Bogie. This quote is on AFI's list of 100 movie quotes, it is ranked number 34. : You know how to whistle, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together and blow.

  • Quotes

    • (Recognizing Patrick doesn't know a "sculpture" of his penis was actually a sex toy)
      Steve: I think you may have been had, mate.
      Jeff: And a lot more often than you realize.

    • Steve: If music be the food of love, then masturbation is just a snack between meals.

    • Jeff: Steve's whole fantasy life revolves around Mariella Frostrup… If he ever meets Mariella Frostrup in person his right hand will shout 'mother'.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Twelfth Night: Steve's quotation "If music be the food of love..." is taken from the opening lines of Shakespeare's play Twelfth Night, where the speech continues " on," rather than according to Steve's version.
