    • QUOTES (4)

      • McGuirk: (yelling at one of the students) Jeanine would you prefer I get in my car and drive you up and down the field? Uh?! Or do you want me to get you a rickshaw--How about that? I'll run you up and down the field in a rickshaw! Welcome to China, Jeanine!

      • McGuirk: You know Dr. Fizzel, I'm gonna be honest with you right now. You know, brutally honest. You suck at this. All you do is make people angry. Like every time I listen to your droning voice, I get angry. And then you tell me "that's my problem." But I tell you, I think it's you. I know what you're gonna say. You're gonna say I'm mad because I'm just a mad person, that I'm an angry person. But that's not it. It's you.
        Fizzel: Tell me--
        McGuirk: No you're not gonna suck me in with that.

      • Mcguirk: 19-20-21. Oh my God 22. Lady do you believe this guy? 22! It says no more than 12, but this fish head's got 22! Alright breathe, relax, now breathe again. Oh now what, comeon pal, it says 12 items or less. 12 or less.
        Guy: Oh good, you can read!
        Mcguirk: Yeah apparantly you can't.
        Guy: Hey why don't you shut your pipe before my foot clogs it.
        Mcguirk: (Poking Guy in the face with toilet brush) Is that a threat or a poem?

      • McGuirk: Well I'm not really an angry person, you know. I just, you know, hate people, and I hate my job.
        Fizzel: Good, accept it.
        McGuirk: And I hate my mother.

    • NOTES (7)

      • Dwayne and Paula's mother are in the audience for the award presentation. Also seen are Mr. Lynch and Walter & Perry.

      • Brendon's Filmography:
        "Fat Her" – A journalist's life is changed forever when he makes a story that could bring down the most powerful man in the free world. Also, he has an affair and his mistress tries to kill him.
        "Archaeologists" – Two archaeologists looking for dinosaur bones find romance instead.
        "Mistaken for a Princess" – The daughter of a self-serve gas station attendant ends up being mistaken for a princess by a bunch of inept, over-the-hill mobsters who are trying to get enough money together so they can buy a struggling minor league baseball team and retire.

      • This is the first episode to bring the storyline of Brendon's dad into the mix.

      • This is the last time Mitch Hedberg appears on Home Movies.

      • David Cross from Mr. Show, With Bob and David appears in this episode.

      • At the time this episode premiered, it was unknown whether or not Cartoon Network was going to pick up this show for a second season. Luckily they did, but the Father storyline wasn't even resolved until episode 207 entitled "Dad."

      • This is the last episode in Squigglevision, and ironically enough, the final episode of Season 1.
