Trivia

FILTER BY TYPE

  • Trivia

    • Chris' birthday is February 8.

    • The song that Franz Gutentag is singing while moving a "Chris" puppet is "Der Kommisar" by Falco.

    • German used in this episode:
      "Gutentag" means "good day", "Schlechtnacht" means "bad night".
      The sign on the right door reads "keine entranz mit platz munchen" which means "no ... with place munich". "Entranz" isn't German.
      The sign on the left door reads "gluck mach nicht enmechwerchtich lieber" which means "luck make not ... rather"; "enmechwerchtich" is gibberish.
