  • Trivia

    • When Joy tells Earl he doesn't care enough for their marriage, she mentions how she tricked him into marrying her. This doesn't make sense, as Joy confesses to Earl quite a few years after the events of this episode (in Season 2).

    • When they were trapped in the phone booth, Kenny said he'd like to kiss a guy, in front of Patty. However, in "Pilot", she didn't know he was gay.

    • Featured Music:
      Unknown Song (Randy eats Joy's cake)
      "What's Your Name" by Lynyrd Skynyrd (Joy's party)
      "I'm Too Sexy" by Right Said Fred (Earl's cousin appears)
      "You're The Inspiration" by Chicago (Earl and Joy's love video)
      "Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'" by Journey (Closing scenes)

    • When Earl makes the leap to save Joy from the bee, he is not holding the corn dog stick in his hand. However, at the end of the leap he stabs it to the floor with his right hand.

  • Quotes

    • Earl: Do you think you're going to find someone better than me? Go for it, baby! But keep in mind this is Camden. I own my own car, I almost graduated high school and I have a huge collection of cassette tapes. So, good luck to you!

    • Kenny: Those bees are such bitches!
      Darnell: You laugh, but that statement is factual. Most of the colony are actually female. There's only a few males and their only job is to have sex with the queen.
      Kenny: Yech! Worst job ever.
