    • There was no tagline for this episode as it had a closing scene over the credits instead of the theme song.

    • After Luanne reads the card from Buckley she puts her hands down, and when she brings them up she has two Manger Babies on her hands. First, when she walks into the room the are clearly not on the ground, but even if they were she did not move enough to have put them on.

    • During the opening theme the "King of the Hill" sign appears above the guys as they are drinking, and the theme ends when Hank puts the trash in the garbage can, as suppose to its usually ending of his head and the title.

  • Quotes

    • Dooley: (to Bobby) Your dad got blown up.

    • Luanne: I'm fine, aunt Peg. I broke up with Buckley just before it happened and never looked back. (pause) That's why I still have my eyebrows.

    • Luanne: Sock puppets are for babies. In the real world, beauty fades and penguins die a cold, horrible death.

    • Chuck Mangione: (while Mega-Lo-Mart survivors are undergoing therapy) Now Every song I play sounds like "Feels so Good."
      Therapist: Maybe that's be cause it does "Feel so Good" to be alive.
      Chuck Mangione: No, that's not it.

    • Hank: I did not blow up the Mega Lo Mart!
      Buck: I'm glad you said that, Hank. I'm wearin' a wire for an unrelated matter.
