  • Trivia

    • Lindsay looks up Marijuana in the encyclopedia at the Johnson's house and finds the entry located almost all the way at the back of the "M" volume. "Marijuana" should be very near the front since the second letter in the word is "A". (There's also only one "M" volume on the shelf so it's not likely that the rest of the M's are in another volume.)

    • Kate Jackson is seen in the brief clip from Charlie's Angels, and Harold expresses his appreciation for her. However, Jackson left the series after the 1978-79 season.

  • Quotes

    • Nick: What do people do when they're not stoned?
      Ken: I dunno. Relate to one another?

    • Mr. Rosso: How dumb do I look?
      Ken: Do you really wanna know?

    • Millie: You're high!
      Lindsay: How could you tell?
      Millie: I know what high people look like. I went to a Seals and Crofts concert last summer.

    • Lindsay: God! We used to love Mac Davis, remember?
      Millie: Yeah. You used to say you wished you had pillows stuffed with his hair.

    • The series won the 2000 Emmy for Outstanding Casting for a Comedy.

    • The show was cancelled the day after this episode aired.

    • This episode was originally scheduled to air 21 Feb 00.

    • This episode opened with the Weir family watching Charlie's Angels. Coincidentally, time-slot competitor That '70s Show aired a scene (at nearly the exact same time) with characters watching that program. Suffice it to say, Sam's choice of Bosley as the highlight of Charlie's Angels was not shared by the characters on the other show.
