      ANDY:(MUTTERS) That sucks.
      FEMALE EXEC:See? That guy's young and he's responding to it. (WRITES ON BOARD) Chef-A-Rooni sucks.
      ANDY:No, that really does suck.
      FEMALE EXEC:Exactly.

  • Notes

    • Jim's boss says that successful companies with x-rated images in them are Marlboro's Camel, McDonalds Golden Arches. Items with humorous X-rated names are Burger Kings Whopper, Seven Elevens Big Gulp and, the candy bar Mounds.

    • According to the script, Jim's boss says that all major logo's have some sort of x-rated reference in them.

    • There are no actors, airdates, and production numbers for episodes 14 –18 as they not only never aired, but were not 100% completed and didn't have any voice work for them.

    • The animatics for this episode and the ones after it were almost on the DVD but due to complications in paying the actor's involved they got pulled.

    • The scripts were written for episodes 14-18 and 14-16 made it to animatic but the show got pulled in production. Some episodes were halfway finished but none got completed.

  • Allusions

    • After Andy makes the billboard into a Phallic shape his boss says that they were everywhere even on his kid's video tape. This is a reference to the urban legend that a disgruntled animator drew a phallic shaped tower on the cover of the Little Mermaid video tape.
