  • Trivia

    • The "war dance" Billy Riggins and the team do in practice is incorrectly labelled as Samoan. It is actually a Maori dance called the Haka, to ward off evil spirits, and the New Zealand rugby league team perform this before every game.

    • Zach Gilford appears in this episode as Matt Saracen for the first time since season 4.

  • Quotes

    • Mindy: Listen: life is gonna throw a bunch of crap at you, but all you can do is put it in the past and leave it there.

    • (Hastings is pretending to be a TV host while Luke pretends to be Vince)
      Hastings: Oh, there he is, the golden child Vince Howard. Tell us how you slaughtered the Panthers.
      Luke: I threw the ball to myself, I caught it in the end zone, and then I kicked the extra point with my gold-plated schlong.

    • (Vince just had his first local TV appearance)
      Vince: What, you didn't like it?
      Jess: Nah, it was cool, but you barely talked about anyone but yourself. I mean, you got a whole team out there...
