Luanne does not appear in this episode.
Technically, mixing ammonia and bleach will not produce mustard gas. It is a common misconception that chlorine gas is mustard gas. While the two are similar, it takes more than just mixing the two household cleaners to make mustard gas. They must be mixed in the right parts and exposed to other chemicals to lower the pH and synthesize the correct reaction to get C4H8Cl2S, aka mustard gas. That said, of course, still DO NOT mix the two together! It will form chloramine, a very toxic chlorine gas.
At the end of the episode, the Texas flag is upside down.
Bobby: The last few days of delivering papers, I've seen things I've never seen before: The sunrise... the morning dew... snails on the sidewalks. Things... I never want to see again.
Minh: (on the phone with her mother-in-law) I agree Laoma - nothing good enough for your little Kahn! That's why I would so appreciate you telling me how I might remove a lipstick stain from his shirt. Uh-huh. (pause) Yes, Laoma, I did hear you say my lipstick remind you of Bangkok circus clown!
Hank: Last night Bobby reached for a dinner roll, and I think I saw a muscle in his throwing arm!
(Peggy is applying for a job with The Arlen Bystander)
Editor: I'm looking for people who have a home-spun wisdom that comes from living a real life.
Peggy: A realer life than mine you would be hard-pressed to find!
(Bobby is in a line to sign up for a paper route)
Bobby: Is your dad making you get a paper route too?
Dooley: I'm building character.
Dale: I have hopelash.
Hank (to Bobby): You know, I've been getting a lot of complaints about your throwing accuracy. You do know you're right-handed, don't ya?
Mr. Biffel: I don't need you for facts Peggy. We've got a fact checker for that. Actually, I guess I got to let her go in light of this mustard gas thing.
Although Peggy gets a job working for the Arlen Bystander in this episode, she had already been seen working there in the previous season's episode 'Smoking and the Bandit'. This episode is actually a holdover from season 8.
Bystand Me: The title is a play-off words from the hit 'Stand By Me'
