  • Trivia

    • It doesn't make sense that between Peggy, Dale and Bobby, none of them would think to go to a public outdoor pool, as they would be open, and are free. Even if there isn't one in Arlen, they could find the nearest big city and go to one there. It wouldn't have taken any longer then they spent searching for a private pool.

    • Tagline: "Just pour it in the snorkel! Pour it!" -Bill

    • Luanne does not appear in this episode.

  • Quotes

    • Cotton: Only thing that makes sense is to head for the place where a man with American dollars can live like a king, suckling on God's great teat: Mexico.
      Bill: Margereetees and senoreetees!
      Cotton: Amen, Fatty!

    • Bill: So then Cotton says "I bet Fatty here can eat fifty potatoes." And the bartender says "no way," which of course was a terrible insult to the Colonel's honor. Long story short, I was pronounced legally dead!

    • Hank: I've got to make sure Bill doesn't do anything stupid. His wages are still being garnished by Columbia House. A timeshare is the last thing he needs.

    • Wendy: Bill, an attractive man like yourself...
      Bill: I'll buy!

    • Cotton (to Hank): You can't even control your wife and she's only half the man I am.

    • Salesman: You seem like the kind of man who'd really enjoy O'Kelly's company. He's an adventurer, explorer.
      Cotton: Yeah yeah, smells like strawberries, pees ginger beer, don't care.

    • Salesman: If you're like me, your wife would tan your hide if you thought for yourself.
      Hank: Yup, that's why I'm not buying. I'm a big fraidy cat. I'm barely even a man; my wife chases me around with a rolling pin.

    • Salesgirl: It seems this card has been denied.
      Bill: I got other cards. Do you take Blockbuster?

    • Cotton: Lookie here, they got the water that don't give you the hot-poops, swanky.

  • Notes

    • In the script, the Peggy/Bobby/Dale subplot ends with them getting locked into the high school gymnasium. The scene was cut for lack of time.

  • Allusions

    • Title alludes to the 1934 film Death Takes a Holiday which was more recently remade as Meet Joe Black with Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins.
