  • Trivia

    • Tagline: "Lemonade stand, ol' little treehouse." -Boomhauer

    • Luanne does not appear in this episode.

    • When Peggy goes to see her boss in the scene where they talk about child starvation, the boss has papers on the desk, but when she stands up, there is nothing on her desk.

    • In the Alamo commercial announcing the beer recall, Konrad Meinhoffer IV pours himself a glass of Alamo beer and takes a drink. In reality, such a commercial would never air in the United States because it is illegal to depict individuals drinking alcohol in television commercials (and was already illegal at the time that this episode aired).

  • Quotes

    • (The gang is driving back from Mexico, and are sick)
      Dale: Step on it, Bill! I don't know which way it's coming out, but it's coming out!

    • Alamo Customer Service Hotline: Thank you for calling Alamo Beer. For English, press 1. Para continuar en Espanol, opprime al numero dos.
      Peggy: Oh! I've never been indignant in Spanish before (presses two).

    • Peggy: I'm sorry, Hank. Alamo trusts me not to tell you their secrets. Just as you trust me not to tell them about your narrow urethra. And believe me, I had the perfect opportunity.

    • Dale: I'll tell you what's going on with our beer. They've sold it to the Japanese, who will change the formula and repackage it in square bottles that will only fit cupholders in Japanese cars.

    • Dale (in Mexico) I don't mean to sound racist, but this is by far the best selection of beans I have ever seen.

    • Hank: (in frustration) My wife lies to me. My beer company betrays me. Americans are giving Mexicans diarrhea. What the hell is going on here?
