  • Trivia

    • When Paul's parents are talking about their first date, they tell the crew of "Buchman" - and in a few moments Paul - that mobster Frank Costello came to thier table to ask Paul's [future] mother to dance, Paul's mother then says Frank Costello died two days later.

      Since Frank Costello died of natural causes in 1973, the elder Buchman's first date could not have been in 1973!

      Further proof: The very next Episode, "Burt's Building" states that it was 1964 when Paul stole bubblegum from the soda shop, and that he was 7 years old at that time.

  • Quotes

    • Jamie: I called the therapist today and told her we weren't coming back.
      Paul: That's good... isn't it?
      Jamie: I guess... it was stupid to go, right?
      Paul: Well, nah... it wasn't stupid. You didn't know!

    • Jamie: I like it, I think it is unique.
      Paul: Unique is not the same thing as good.
      Jamie: You hate it?
      Paul: Not to the point of barking at it, but I don't like it!
