Mike sets a ketchup bottle to the left of two soda cans. When the camera angle switches to a side view, the ketchup—which should now appear behind the cans—now appears to their right.
Mike goes to Irma and Wally for advice. When he apologizes for just dropping in, Irma says, "That's okay, you can surprise me anytime." Wally comments, "That's what she always tells me." Irma laughs and says, "Oh, Bobby!" Bobby is the first name of the actor who plays Wally.
