  • Trivia

    • Tagline: "My chicken's the star of the show." -Dooley

    • Luanne does not appear in this episode.

    • When the kids are at the butcher's shop, there is one shot where you see Connie standing beside Bobby, but she appears no where else in the episode.

    • At the beginning of the dinner scene Hank puts tomatoes on his taco, in the later shots it shows just lettuce. Later it shows the tomato and then Hank puts lettuce on.

    • When Dooley hands Peggy the paper, she holds it so the writing side is facing her. Then when she collects all the other papers she has the writing facing towards the camera. When she moves the stack so we can see the first paper (Dooley's) it is blank. She never switched it so it should be the side with writing on it.

  • Quotes

    • Police Officer: Did you know that in Greek mythology, a siren was a beautiful woman who sang so sweetly she could make sailors crash their boats into the rocks? Kind of romantic, isn't it?
      Hank: Actually, it's pretty irresponsible.

    • Peggy: Hank, close the blinds or put the wig back on Lupe!

    • Dooley: I drank the water.
      Peggy: In Espanol, por favor.
      Dooley (in Spanish, subtitled): You are a pig.
      Peggy: Muy bueno!

    • Police Officer (listening to her radio): Oh God, I am NOT in the mood for a possible arson right now.

    • Chairman Geiger: I didn't make it to Department Head, supervising three people, by letting a substitute teacher take students to a foreign land.
      Peggy: And I didn't make it to Substitute Teacher of the Year by taking "no" for an answer. Except on "yes or no" tests when "no" was the right answer.

    • Lupe: (in Spanish, subtitled) "My parents have no telephone."
      Peggy: Oh, no. She refuses to call her parents because they hate her. Lupe, tu madre amore mucho, mucho.
      Lupe: (in Spanish, subtitled) "I have no idea what you're saying, but it had better not be anything about my mother."
      Peggy: I was afraid of this. Now she wishes I were her mother.

    • Lupe: Yo vivo en Mexico. ("I live in Mexico")
      Peggy: Yes, "Long live Mexico." Now where are your parents?

    • Boomhauer: Yeah, Hank, flirtin' your way out of a little ol' ticket, man... didn't know you had it in you.
      Hank: I was not flirting. I didn't even mention that I worked in propane.

    • Peggy: Hank, why don't you want me to go to Mexico? Is it the exchange rate?
      Hank: No, it's just that the Spanish they speak there is... you know... fluent.
      Peggy: And I'm not fluent?! In fact, I am so fluent, I may tutor a few Mexican kids while I'm down there! How about that?

    • Judge: (in Spanish) I find the defendant, Peggy Hill, not guilty.
      Peggy: Oh, no! I'm goin' to jail!

    • Peggy: (her testimony translated into English) You honor, I find that you are a reasonable horse. I am very pregnant because of what happened with Lupe. She ate my bus accident and all I wanted to do was make Lupe into a book. I find that I have many good anuses ahead of me to spend in a cigar factory.
