      • The incident with Joan's pierced navel getting infected is based on a real-life incident when Amber Tamblyn convinced a homeless man to pose as her father so she could get a navel-piercing.

      • Close-captioning gives the final line of Kevin's comedy routine as "Does it hurt! It's the damndest thing." This cannot be heard on the audio.
