  • Trivia

    • When Louis is holding the mic and is getting on the table the mic is in his left hand...but when he is on the table it is magically in his right hand.

    • 'I'm a girl, and I took wrestling for a year in school.' Girls weren't aloud to wrestle boys! Thats a big goof!

    • When Louis is wrestling Mimi, the scoreboard in the background changes from scene to scene in this sequence: 0-2, 4-4, 3-2, 3-4, 7-10, 7-8, 7-10 and 9-12.

    • When Louis is looking for a sport to participate in and cross-country is suggested, Twitty say Louis gets winded just tying his shoes. Yet Louis of course was on the track team briefly, even if he didn't do that well, in one of the earliest episodes, "Stevens Genes."

    • In the episode "After Hours," Louis describes Coach Tugnut as "an out-of-shape 35-year-old." But in this episode, he's in good enough shape to casually lift Louis and Twitty in the air using only his arm strength.

  • Quotes

    • Ren: Daddy, I know that sending Louis to military school seems just a little bit harsh, but tough love is our only alternative!
      Steve: Louis is not going to military school. It's too expensive.

    • Twitty: ...if you lose, you might as well dig a hole to the center of the earth, unless there's girls there, and then they'll probably want to beat the snot out of you, too.

    • Louis: (introducing himself)) Louis Stevens, Olympic hopeful.
      Mimi: Mimi Nagurski, destroyer of dreams.

    • Ren: Daddy, you and Mom did a bunch of things before we were born that you don't have to talk about, OK?

  • Notes

    • The music playing when Louis makes his appearance at the wrestling match is a variation of the music used by former WWE wrestler "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.

    • In order to gain weight, Louis eats tons of food including bacon with chocolate sauce! This is another one of many references to bacon that have appeared throughout the series, even before the bacon-loving Beans became a regular character.

    • To understand how how difficult it would be to gain nine pounds in 20 hours, imagine drinking about 139 ounces (1 gallon 11 ounces) of water all at once, which would be dangerous in itself. Water weighs approximately 8.34 pounds per gallon.

  • Allusions

    • Louis: I mean, you are a girl, but you're like Xena.

      Louis is comparing Mimi to the title character of the TV show Xena: Warrior Princess (1995-2001). Xena, played by Lucy Lawless, was a fierce warrior woman from ancient times who once terrorized the Grek countryside. She later came to regret her actions and tried to fight against the forces of evil, often in violent confrontations.
