  • How many stalkers does Billie have?

    9.0
    There's something about Billie in this hilarious episode, which has several great twists and turns, with Earl being refreshed about everything that's going on, Catalina's brief experimentation in lesbianism only going as far as licking a neck, and Earl getting married for a third time. While the Paco/Catalina relationship was funny the first instance, the repetition got old, but that doesn't bring the episode down any, with Frank at his most insane, an ex-cop getting in way over his head and the little Kenny that could.



    The hilarious chase, and arguments throughout the episode are pure Earl, and this is a great instalment for the third season.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • The title of this episode is a reference to a love triangle, which is a romantic relationship involving three people. Indeed, the relationship seen in this episode does include eight persons, hence the word "octagon":

      *Earl, Frank, Stewart and Catalina all try to seduce Billie.
      *Kenny is in love with Stewart.
      *Frank ends up with Jocelyn.
      *Catalina finally meets with her first love, Paco.

      Thus, the love octagon involves Earl, Frank, Stewart, Catalina, Billie, Kenny, Jocelyn and Paco.

    • In previous episodes Randy had a phobia of birds so much so he ran away when he saw one. However, in this episode he not only accidentally sets free Billie's cousin's pet bird, he catches it and returns it to its cage without showing any fear.

    • Featured Music:
      "Girlfriend In A Coma" by The Smiths (Stuart visits Billie)
      "Sexual Healing" by Marvin Gaye (Catalina falls in love with Billie)
      "Burning Love" by Elvis Presley (Closing scene)

    • List Trivia:
      No lines are introduced or crossed off in this episode.

    • When the picture of Earl and Billie is taken, you can see that they both have their eyes closed. However, she has her eyes opened on the picture Earl has of her, so at least one picture of her exists with eyes open, unlike Earl, who doesn't have a picture with his eyes open.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Frank: I need a job so I can get out of here every day.
      Randy: Maybe we can get him a job as a bikini inspector. I've seen the uniforms on sale at the mall. Or he can be a beaver hunter, but you might need a license for that.
