    • TRIVIA (6)

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (1)

      • According to Alton Brown, an important scene was accidentally cut from the episode. A fixed version of the episode will be re-aired. This is the first time Alton Brown had to recall a product due to content reasons.

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Colonel Bob Boatwright
        Colonel Bob's white suit, beard and mustache, southern accent, and use of terms such as "finger-lickin' good" summon memories of Harlan Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken and to many people, stereotypical "southern gentleman." His chain used finger-lickin' good as an advertising slogan before it became a wiser idea NOT to emphasize how much fat the product contained.

      • Alton Brown: "Two sauciers, each alike in dignity, here in fair kitchen where we set our scene."
        Alton's paraphrasing the first couplet from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet which tells the story of two lovers whose families were murderous enemies. It ties to the episode's running joke about the conflict between lovers of grits and lovers of polenta.

      • True Grits
        The title refers to the 1969 film True Grit, starring John Wayne.
