  • Trivia

    • When Frank pulls his car into the park, the viewer sees that the license plate appears to be from the province of Ontario in Canada. Considering the fact that the series is shot in British Columbia, Canada, the car might have belonged to a cast or crew member who live in Ontario and agreed to the use of his or her car.

  • Quotes

    • Ruby: What in the name of holy god is that?
      Pete: She's fucking awesome and she's got a great rack for a morlock.

  • Notes

    • Two scenes were cut from the original cut of Jenifer. One is a more graphic shot of Jenifer performing oral sex on Steven Weber. The other is a more graphic shot of Jenifer biting on the storeowner's son's penis. The first scene runs about four second, the other about seven.

    • This episode is based on comic book written by Bruce Jones and illustrated by Bernie Wrightson.

  • Allusions

    • Time Machine

      Pete: She's fucking awesome and she's got a great rack for a Morlock.
      Morlocks were the subterranean cannibalistic inhabitants encountered by the scientist inventor who travelled into time in H.G. Wells' classic 1895 novel The Time Machine.

    • When Jenifer sits down next to the girl and later eats her, it is an allusion to "Frankentstein" when he accidentally drowns the little girl. Even though this is not what Dario Argento had intended, Joe Dante discovered it after screening the movie.
