Tagline: "I'm doing it! I'm a mooner!" -Hank
After the banquet dinner where Bill sees Lenore, she comes to visit him at home. They are sitting down on the couch and when she's talking she has her hand on his chest and you can see there is a pen in Bill's right shirt pocket. Between shots she talks about stealing Bill away at the prom and in one quick shot the pen disappears and the next shot it returns. Also look at Lenore's hand in this scene. It goes from being next to his chest, away from his chest back to being on his chest.
As Peggy is testing the burgers at the end to see the difference she moves to the charcoal grill and puts three patties between 2 buns. In the next shot when she is throwing them out there are two extra buns in amongst the middle patties.
When Hank & the guys are talking about mooning from the glass elevator, Hank is positioned with his back next to the wall as he is sitting at the table. When Dale says his high school mooning was the best thing he ever did it. It then shows Hank and he says, "The vice principal gave you a week's detention" and is now sitting away from the wall with his back to a group of men in the opposite table.
This is the only episode that features Bill's ex-wife, Lenore.
Lenore's date at the dinner looks exactly like Bill, except with a full head of hair.
When Peggy says that she and Bobby ate all the hamburgers, if you look in the background, you can see a full plate of them.
Hank: :(while holding a choice of two hamburgers, one cooked with charcoal or propane) So... tell me, Peggy... Which do you want? Charcoal... or me?
Lenore: Bill, why did I ever leave?
Bill: You said it was because I was fat and bald and I got too jealous whenever you had a date.
(Trying to cover up the smell of charcoal)
Peggy: Quick, Bobby! Strip off your clothes, put them in the dryer, and throw in some fish sticks! Your father has a nose like a Doberman!
Dale: Ann Richards, it's been awhile! You may not remember me, but I've seen you on TV!
Hank: I can't just leave work ten minutes early on a Friday!
Bill: This is the hotel where Lenore and I spent our honeymoon. That's the couch where I slept.
Bill: I'm a mature man, older but wiser. And Lenore is older but still pretty.
Dale: True, Lenore is ten times hotter than Ann Richards. And Ann Richards is hot!
Dale: Perhaps you are unaware this is the club floor. I believe we have certain immunities.
Hank: Sir, I officially resign my room effective immediately.
Bill: No Hank, I'm the one who mooned.
Hank: Bill, no.
Bill: Let me take the fall for you, Hank. I don't have as far to drop.
Hank: I'm going to kick all of your asses!
Dale: Why is it always about asses with you, Hank?
Hank: Look at the soot under the boy's nails! You don't get that with a clean-burning fuel!
Bobby: You don't get the rich, smooth smoky texture either...
Hank: You shut your mouth!
Hank: (shocked, to Peggy) You brought charcoal into our house!
Ann Richards: (to Bill mooning LaNore) While you're at it, blow her a kiss too!
Ann Richards: Bill, whenever they serve humble pie, why do you always come back for seconds?
Bobby: (upset at Peggy for choosing propane over charcoal) You lied, Mom.
Peggy: No, Bobby, I came to my senses. All of them, except for taste.
The song the guys are listening to in the car is "Hungry Like the Wolf" by Duran Duran.
