  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Both people the Viacom executive instructs to clean out the Port-O-Potties are former Real World cast members - Puck, from the San Francisco season and Irene from the Seattle season. Both grabbed the attention of MTV viewers - Puck for getting kicked out of the house and Irene for being slapped by a fellow cast member.

    • When Natalie calls for a second cab, her mouth doesn't move.

  • QUOTES (7)

  • NOTES (3)

    • During broadcast runs, this episode had the cast singing REM's "Everybody Hurts" at the end. However, because United States' copyright law dictates that artists' permission must be obtained for both when the episode airs and when it is released on DVD, the creators of Mission Hill were unable to get permission to use the song on the DVD release.

    • Music: "Everybody Hurts" by R.E.M.
      "Ape Self Prevails In Me Still" by Quasi

    • This episode was originally scheduled to air on October 15, 1999. The WB even showed a promo during the credits of episode 2, "Kevin's Problem (or Porno for Pyro)". After the series was pulled, the official website for Mission Hill said this episode would be "coming this spring to the WB." It didn't come that spring, and it didn't come that summer either. However, it did air on Adult Swim in 2002.
