A variant of Bach' "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor" can be heard lightly playing in the background while Penn discusses the history of the "living room".
The "Bunny in the Chipper-Shredder" bit in the open of this show is one of Penn and Teller's most famous routines during their live show.
The things Teller takes out to "improve his conscious contact with God" while acting out the 12 Steps are: a Buddha statue, a chalice with Hebrew lettering, a small cross, a crown of thorns, and a whip with which he beats himself.
When Teller acts out the step in 12 Step where he is supposed to make a list of those to whom he has wronged, and make retribution to them, he writes Penn's name quickly on the envelope.
This episode of Bullsh**! is unique in that it contains primarily only two guest experts and a slew of man-on-the-street type comments.
The label on the bottle Teller pours his "wine" into from the opening water to wine gag reads "Bullsh**! Estate Vineyards, 2004 Las Vegas Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino, merde du taureau BRUN (French for bullsh**, brown).
Jokes you might've missed: As Penn delivers the final monologue, Teller throws a Bible offscreen that ends up impaled on the bull's horn. Near the end of the monologue, he takes the Bible and positions it in front of his pants while a zipping sound is heard...
First episode to utilize the prop of a fake black bull with red horns. The prop would be reused at during many future episodes.
The full list of people and/or things that end up in bed with Penn at various times over the course of the episode: three women, two ducks, a woman in Victorian dress, a waiter, a woman dressed as Jeannie from "I Dream of Jeannie", Teller, a person in a gorilla costume, a George W. Bush lookalike, and a female scientist.
Of the things mentioned in the opening tease, Penn and Teller do discuss the Loch Ness Monster (and, by proxy though not explicitly, unicorns) in their Cryptozoology episode and technically discuss Satan in their Exorcisms episode.
Teller once again speaks in this episode, helping Penn pronounce Mother Teresa's birth name, Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu.
The angry letter at the beginning of the episode was "sent in" by fellow juggler Michael Goudeau. Goudeau is Penn's co-host on his FreeFM radio show, and a producer for Bullshit.
During the segment when Penn & Teller are eating at the tables, you can see the woman with the pink t-shirt getting up and slamming the menu on the table right after the first client has left, and then immediately sit back down as she realises her cue is way later, when Penn talks about vegans.
Penn shaved off his actual chin hair inorder to put on a fake one so Teller could rip it off.
When Penn and Teller are discussing time shares, the footage they show of hotels is obviously reversed as the waterfalls are flowing up.
Boom Mic Visible: During the interview with the exorcist named Chris, the boom mic bobs in and out in the top right corner of the screen.
Michael Goudeau, a writer on the show and Penn's sidekick on the Penn Radio show, appeared as the chiropractor.
The scenes with experiments on the young boy that involved tests of motherly wisdom (ie, you can catch your death of cold, don't go swimming after eating, etc.) were actually filmed during season 1. The intent was to build an episode around Mom Myths but the writers could not pull together enough material to fill an episode. The scenes were saved and eventually incorporated into Season 6's Stranger Danger.
When they cut to a scene when Penn is saying that he want to eat the biggest f**king burger he can find, they cut to a picture of Blondie's Restaurant in Winnipeg, MB, Canada. The burger shown is a 9 LB Burger after cooking weight.
