Earl: (to himself) I'm never gonna make it.
Ethyl: If I don't see a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree, I'm gonna get on the bus, forget about us, and put the blame on meeee, if I don't see a yellow ribbon round the old oak treeee.

This episode was nominated for the best prime-time sitcom of
1994, but it lost to the 5th season of the Simpsons.
Ethel is the only living survivor at her high school reunion. Which makes you wonder why exactly they had a reunion to begin with?!
When Ethyl refers to her friends Dorothy, Rose and Blanche, she refers the cast from the 1985 sitcom, The Golden Girls.
Driving Miss Daisy:
The title of the episode is a reference to the 1989 film, Driving Miss Daisy.
