Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Erin's assertion that the VW Thing was designed by Adolf Hitler is based on the urban legend that he designed the original Beetle. It is believed that Hitler gave a rough sketch of what the Beetle should look like to its credited designer, a man named Porsche. While Hitler may have been responsible for the Beetle's unique design, the idea for the Thing was not conceived until the 1960s, 20 years after Hitler's death. He could not have designed this particular car.

  • QUOTES (1)

  • NOTES (3)

    • In reruns, several outtakes are shown during the credits. One of which is of Erin thanking Xzibit and "the crew at West..." she stops herself before saying "Coast Customs." Xzibit and the GAS crew respond by laughing hysterically.
