    • QUOTES (30)

    • NOTES (2)

      • Orel does not get a spanking in this episode.

      • The premise for this episode was given to Dino Stamatopoulos, creator of Moral Orel and head writer, by Charlie Kaufman, friend and co-writer from The Dana Carvey Show. He is not credited with this in the closing credits, yet Dino Stamatopoulos mentioned it in an interview.

    • ALLUSIONS (5)

      • Mount Calvary
        The Jesus crucifixion story sees Christ being lead to Mount Calvary, or Golgotha, as he carries the cross upon his back. The hospital in this episode is called the 'Calvary Pain Institute' which is a direct reference to this Bible story.

      • The Omnipotence Paradox
        Bloberta saying that not even God can go against the Bible is a reference to the Omnipotence Paradox. The Omnipotence Paradox is actually a family of related paradoxes having to do with the question of what an omnipotent being can do. In particular, whether or not a being that is able to perform all actions can perform an action that would limit its own ability to perform actions. It was dicussed by the philosopher, Averroës (1126-98).

      • Judas
        Orel: Doughy, you Judas'd me.
        Judas Iscariot was, according to the New Testament, one of the twelve original apostles of Jesus, and was the one who betrayed him; telling the Romans where he was.

      • Lazarus
        When playing with Bartholomew, Orel tells him to 'play Lazarus.' Lazarus is the name of two separate characters in the New Testament. The more famous one is the subject of the miracle recounted in John 11:41–44, in which Jesus raises him from the dead. Due to this story, the name is often used to connote restoration.

      • Lassie
        Orel: Gosh Bartholomew, compared to you, Lassie was a heathen.
        Lassie, a Rough Collie, is 'the world's most famous dog.' Lassie is a fictional character who has starred in many movies, TV shows, and books from 1938 through to 2006.
