  • Trivia

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

    • Luanne's hair seems to have fully grown back, and it is the first (aired and produced) episode where her hair is back to normal, however the episode aired early and so there are episodes that air afterwards where her hair is shorter, due to them being produced first.

  • Quotes

    • Bobby (asPeggy has just appeared fully re-done by the pageant specialist): Wow, mom! You look like you could star in a headache commercial!

      Peggy: Are you still having that nightmare where he pecks your eyes out?
      Bobby: Oh, I had forgotten about those, until now.
      Peggy: Hmmm.

    • Lane: Now, what's it gonna take for you to buy this truck today?
