    • QUOTES (2)

      • Guest: I was expecting chicken potpie, which is the classic dish… this is not your typical island meal, I do want to say that.

      • Irvine: When you have a side of salmon, the skirt becomes very mushy; I take an inch off, I use it in the stocks or I throw it away.

    • NOTES (2)

      • This episode's venue, Little Cranberry Island, also known as Islesford, Maine, is an approximately 200 acre island three miles off the coast of Acadia National Park. The island has a long fishing and boating history and fishing is still a major source of income. The golf carts and bicycles seen throughout the episode are part of a community resolution to reduce waste and pollution to preserve both the island and the fishing waters.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Irvine: George and I were doing a Supermarket Sweepstakes, filling our carts as fast as we could.

        This is probably a reference to the game show Supermarket Sweep, with versions in both America and the UK, where contestants race up and down aisles in a staged supermarket collecting groceries to win prizes.
