    • Luanne: Aunt Peggy, Lucky says if we were both in lockup, I could probably take you. But I don't want to do that, because we're family.

    • Bill: If this field could talk, I bet it would say 'Thanks for watering me, Bill. I was very thirsty. So, handsome, got any plans Friday night?'

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • The movie Bobby wants to see, called "The Princess and the Poor Girl" is possibly a reference to the famous book "The Prince and the Pauper" by Mark Twain, which has had multiple movies loosely based on it.

    • The episode title is a parody of the classic Bachman-Turner Overdrive song "Takin' Care Of Business."
