  • Trivia

    • Two deleted scenes of Milan hawking feng shui merchandise can be seen on the First Season dvd.

    • The description on the water list for 4.75 per bottle L'eau Du Robinet: "Pure, brisk, and unmistakably French, this running water is bottled directly from the source, while its natural minerals and nutrients are still at their most potent. Its aggressive flavor and brash attitude make it a perfect complement to meats and poultry."

    • The description in the water list for 4.75 per bottle Mt. Fuji: "From the highest reaches of Japan, this refreshing water is known throughout the Far East for its clean and bracing flavor as well as its restorative powers as a natural diuretic and anti-toxin."

    • Names on the bottles of water used in the water steward bit:

      Mt. Fuji-Zen Water

      Amazon-Brazilian rain water

      Agua de Culo (a** water in Spanish)

      Pisse de chat (French...ish for cat pee, as seen in a Deleted scene)

  • Quotes

    • Penn: [on the idea of bottled water] Think about it. What other product can you take out of the ground for almost nothing, put in a fancy bottle, and then sell to people for more than GASOLINE! It's almost like printing money!

    • Penn: [on Everest brand water] In fact, if you read the fine print on the f*cking label, they even admit the water comes from a "municipal source"! That is TAP WATER, Brothers and Sisters of the Cult of the Bottle!

    • David: The unfavorable energy settled in the living room. That was determined through these ancient mathematical calculations that, of course, were derived and developed through centuries of empirical observations.
      Penn: Could you PLEASE show your work? Nahh. Didn't think so.

    • Kartar: There's nothing overtly visual right now that I see as being a problem.

      Penn: Overtly visual? What the hell does that mean? I hope there's nothing subtly invisible....

    • Penn: We went to the center of Far Eastern philosophy...Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

    • Penn: [on David's misuse of analogies] If you don't understand analogies, just don't use 'em. It's like...a pig on a tightrope.

    • Penn: If you could, in any way, demonstrate or measure the "chi" they're claiming to direct, you'd win a Nobel Prize for physics. But...why would you want that Stockholm piece of cr*p when you can move stranger's furniture at random for money!

    • Milan: Chi is actually like this yellow ball. It's just moving, bouncing, traveling. [tosses ball]

      Penn: It's not just bouncing and traveling. You're throwing it.

    • David: The best way I can explain the science of Feng Shui is knowing how a cosmic volleyball game is structured.
