  • Trivia

    • Tagline: "Vaya con Dios." -Monsignor Martinez. This is the first time that a tagline is not unique to this episode but rather a line that is repeated throughout the series.

    • The officer asks Hank to pull over the car, however Peggy was driving. Even though Khan was talking about Hank to the officer, he should have still asked the driver to pull over, not the passenger.

    • When driving to Mexico, in the wide shots, it is clear that no one in the car has facial features (eyes, nose, etc.)

    • The opening credits have a Mexican style to them in the first guitar notes.

    • When the police came to the condo and everyone begins to panic, Dale leaves through the bathroom window. The strange thing is that the Hills are in the top floor of the condo, and yet Dale walks off as if he is on the bottom floor. Also, when Hank tells the police "We have nothing to hide", Dale can be seen falling from upstairs. But there is no room above the Hills.

  • Quotes

    • (Hank, Dale and Kahn prepare to cross the Mexican border back into America)
      Kahn: Do you see how easy it is to get into this country? I can't believe I had to learn the Bill of Rights. When am I gonna use that?
      Dale: You'd be surprised, Kahn. I take the fifth on a daily basis.

    • (Hank explains to Bobby about the fence at the Mexican border to keep out illegal immigrants)
      Bobby: Did Kahn come over the fence, Dad?
      Hank: No, he applied the legal way. Sometimes the system fails.

    • Hank:(To the police men) We have nothing to hide.(We see Dale jumping out of the window)

    • Kahn: (after getting a lime in his beer) Hey, this is a beer, not a fruit salad!

  • Notes

    • It is unkown if the Hotel manager got the money the judge ordered Hank to pay or if some thing else was worked out.

    • Speeding up while another car attempts to pass on the left, like Peggy does on her way to Mexico, is against Texas law.

    • In the DVD commentary, "Bill" (Stephen Root) takes a shot at Johnny Hardwick for a poorly written line that was said in the episode.

    • The songs that Kahn sings in the episode are: Mickey by Toni Basil), Blinded me with Science by Thomas Dolby, and What I like About You by The Romantics.

  • Allusions

    • Lucky Pierre: This refers to the middle person in a gay three way, referencing that they both "give" and "receive".

    • (Dale is in court after being arrested for breaking into the condo)
      Dale: If his key fit, you must acquit.

      During the infamous murder trial of O.J. Simpson, Simpson tried on the gloves that he was alleged to have worn during the murders and they didn't fit him. During the closing arguments, his lawyer Johnnie Cochrane referred to the gloves and said, "If it doesn't fit, you must acquit."

    • The title is an allusion to the 1975 spy movie Three Days of the Condor.
