  • Trivia

    • As Bobby visits Connie and is at her window he lays his hands on the window sill. The next shot they are back by his side and they keep alternating back and forth even though he never moves them between shots. At the end of the scene Connie shuts the window smoothly even though his fingers were still there in the shot before.

    • As Luanne is putting the dirt into Bobby's fruit pie you can see she rips open a large part of the packet. Yet in the next scene when Bobby is about to eat the pie there is no sign of where Luanne ripped the packet. Its likely this was deliberate as the joke in the scene was Bobby and Luanne's constant attempts to get back at each other, if they had left the large hole its likely Bobby would have not fallen for Luanne's prank.

    • During the scene where Peggy and Hank are enjoying a spa, Hank fills up the champagne glasses with beer. He stops pouring a bit before the top of the glasses and there is very little foam on the top. In the very next shot both their glasses have foam overflowing from it.

    • Tagline: "I don't think I'm ready for this yet!" -Bobby

    • During Rad Thibodeaux's haircut, there is a shot that shows the both of them in the mirror but the objects on the counter in front of Rad have no reflection.

  • Quotes

    • Bobby: Mom, I don't want to do this. Peggy: Well of course you don't. Bill: Bobby, do you take this girl to be your lawfully wedded wife, to have and to hold until death do you part? Bobby: (Moans) Hank: That sounds like a 'yes' to me.

    • Bobby: Luanne, I know we've had our differences but I was kinda hoping we could make up and not get married.
      Luanne: Uncle Hank! Bobby's trying to get out of marrying me!
      Hank: Bobby, you cut that out.

    • Hank:You can make up for this by marrying Luanne.
      Bobby: But I'm only 12 years old.
      Hank: Well just think, you can be married for 80 years.
      Bobby: Dad, you can't make me marry Luanne.
      Hank: Yes I can. You're only 12 years old.

    • Khan: Minh! Bobby Hillbilly is marrying hillbilly cousin! You owe me five dollars!! Ha Ha In your face!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • This is the first of many episodes that we see a Bart Simpson doll on the top shelf of Bobby's bookshelf. Bart Simpson is a main character on fellow Fox show "The Simpsons".

    • Luanne: (after telling Bobby he is a hanger-oner) Like A.J.!

      Luanne is referring to A.J. McLean from the Backstreet Boys.

    • The episode title and a twelve year old Bobby Hill marrying may allude to a vintage musical short called "The Wedding of Jack and Jill" with Judy Garland before she took that stage name. Only still photos survive from the film but they feature a young boy looking a bit like Bobby Hill in this episode when he's trussed up in a suit for the wedding to his allegedly pregnant Luanne. One of the old (English) interpretations of the nursery rhyme Jack and Jill actually involves a pregnant woman (Jill) whose lover (Jack) dies in a fall before they can wed as a cautionary tale.
