Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • While all mammals can carry rabies, squirrels are not considered a reservoir for the virus, compared to raccoons, skunks and woodchucks. The Centers for Disease Control reports no known human rabies case from a squirrel in the US. Still, if you are bitten by anything, you should thoroughly wash the wound with soap and water and see a doctor as soon as possible.

      The post-exposure rabies treatment is no longer given in the abdomen, just in any muscular area away from the bite wound.

    • When Craig and Lois are talking, the lemon lime drink can moves back and forth depending on which angle it is seen.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Lois: Every time you come into contact with me and my family, something horrible happens to you. I can't deal with the guilt anymore.
      Craig: I don't know what you're talking about.
      Lois: Come on, if it weren't for us you'd still have all your teeth, you wouldn't flinch every time you saw a ceiling fan, your car would never have been filled with bees.
      Craig: Coincidences.
      Lois: Craig, you broke your foot looking up a phone number for me.

    • Francis: I can't stand this yelling and screaming. It's making me feel so... homesick.

    • Hal: The only way I've managed to get through my crappy life with any shred of self-worth is by living in denial. If I let myself get beaten by failure, I would have quit after one kid.

    • Malcolm: We'll be in profit once we sell tree 67.
      Reese: Then let's just sell that tree first!

  • NOTES (2)

    • Cold Open: Hal and Lois finish wrapping all the presents and then realize they have more wrapped gifts then they bought presents. They discover they wrapped Jaime.

    • Bryan Cranston submitted this episode (as well as "Reese Joins the Army, Part 2") for Emmy consideration but was not nominated.
