  • Trivia

    • In this episode Peggy mentions that they (or technically Bobby) use to own a cat. This seems highly unlikely as not only does Hank hate cats, but they already had Ladybird. While many people have both cats and dogs, the Hills don't seem like the type to go and get a cat for Bobby, when they already have a dog. It is seemingly used purely as a device for a joke, and not an actual hint of the past.

    • Tagline: "You'll get tired of this long before I do." - Professor Lerner. This is not actually a line from the episode but an extension on the ending when Hank, Peggy and Bobby continuously pushed him into the hole.

    • Hank is there when Peggy has her class at the dig site, however, that would most likely mean it is a school day. Hank should be at work.

  • Quotes

    • Peggy: Hank, I thought you told Bill not to mow his lawn so early...
      Hank: That's not Bill's mower... in fact... that doesn't sound like a mower at all. (opens his curtains to see a backhoe digging up a massive hole in his yard and screams) NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! (wipes fog off his window as he screams into it)

    • (Boomhauer has been looking over a contract Peggy signed against Hank's will that lets an archeologist destroy his precious lawn)
      Boomhauer: "Herefore after referred to as 'dang ol' aforementioned antiquities' pursuant to the public domain title six of the state". I tell you what, man, it's airtight.
      Hank: Boomhauer, I didn't understand a word you just said.

    • John Redcorn: It's a tool used for straightening the shaft of an arrow.
      Hank: Yeah but in a pinch you could jab it into someone's brainstem, right?
      John Redcorn: Yes, but that's true of almost any tool.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Peggy mentions PBS being able to educate Bobby because of viewers like her. PBS' slogan is "broadcasting made possible because of viewers like you."

    • In the opening shot it shows some random person mowing a lawn and then pans right next door to Hank's house. However Hank's two next door neighbours are Khan and Dale, and it was not either of them mowing.
