  • Trivia

    • Tagline: "Coooo." -Sheila "Aaaaakh." -Dale

    • The conversation that Dale has with the assistant is in Filipino. Dale says: "Ako mangiangan ang kalapati diyos" which translates to "I need the dove God", and the man says "Siya nasain maari diyan bukas"which translates to "He will open you there".

    • When Dale, in his van, sees the van he's been waiting to meet drive up, he tells Hank to wait inside. His hand is animated to be placed on Hank's shoulder. However, for a second or two, Dale's hand is resting on empty air. Hank then moves into position fluidly in place under Dale's palm.

  • Quotes

    • Dale: I've made two vows in my life. One to the NRA, and the other to Nancy Hicks-Gribble nee Nancy Hicks.

    • Bouncer: What's up, Hefner?
      Hank: You take that back! I am the designated driver, and I'd like a wristband that reflects that.

    • Bar Guy: Hey, what's your name, Beautiful?
      Luanne: It's Luanne, but you can call me Beautiful. I am totally flirting in a bar!
      Hank: I have never needed a beer so bad in my entire life.

    • John Redcorn: Nancy, I feel I should warn you -- man, this is an awkward call -- I think this woman is interested in Dale. You shouldn't let him go out tonight.
      Nancy: That's why I sent her to you! What about the massage?
      John Redcorn: It was just a massage. And she assumed the tip was included in the gift certificate!

    • Hank: What am I supposed to wear to Luanne's birthday party? I need something that says "I am not some weird old guy in the bar, I am here against my will."

    • John Redcorn: I'm sure Nancy told you about the time I cured four of her migranes in one night?

    • Nancy: Wouldn't that be poetic justice? I come back to Dale and he runs off with another woman?
      Peggy: I would say it's ironic, but you're the one it's happening to, you can call it what you want.

    • Sheila: Dale, honey, would you mind grabbing a caulking gun and helping me out?
      Hank: Do you know how many years I wished Peggy would ask me that?

    • Sheila: Whoa, that's some kind of spray-wand you got there. Bet you could blast one hell of a gopher with that thing.
      Dale: I could blast through a horse to get to the gopher.

    • Sheila: This is one impressive infestation. Was this neighborhood built on a landfill?

    • Dale: These birds don't stand a chance against this ultrasonic bird distress emitter. (laughs) I was up all night listening to sounds that'll drive you crazy.
      (Dale turns on a recording of annoying sounds)
      Hank: How long does this have to go on for?
      Dale: Forever.

    • Dale: Gribble Team ready! I'm assuming you'll want the heads for identification purposes?
      Hank: You're supposed to count the birds, Dale.
      Dale: Eventually they will be counted.

    • Dale: Bill, you're a filthy, flocking animal. Would this scare you? (shoves a ceramic owl in Bill's face)
      Bill: (yells in fright, and quickly regains composure) No.

    • Peggy: Oh, Luanne, I will make your birthday party so much fun! And I can be there to gently remind you that as the daughter of an alcoholic, you have a genetic gun pointed at your head and with every drink, you are adding another bullet to the chamber.

  • Notes

    • The song John Redcorn plays after being asked for the "migraine special" is "Let's Get It On" by Marvin Gaye. The song playing at the club when Luanne is being hit on is "Fever for the Flava" by Hot Action Cop. The song Hank has playing at the club is "I Want to Know What Love is" by Foreigner. The song in the car when Luanne and the guy are making out is "I'll Make Love to You" by Boyz II Men When Bill and Boomhauer are helping the alpha male pigeon get out of his acid trip, a mock-up of Pink Floyd's "Great Gig In The Sky" plays in the background (they couldn't get rights clearances for use of the real song).

  • Allusions

    • When Hank is Luanne's designated driver and he really wanted and is forced to drink is similar to The Simpson's episode "The State of New York vs Homer Simpson", where Barney Gumble was the designated driver and felt the need for beer and had an opportunity to chug a giant mug.
