  • Trivia

    • During the Canadian Tire ad, Bob says that the new prod is "Just like a cattle prod, just 700 more volts." Tom then replies "700 volts. That's a lot", but it comes across as sounding like the voltage is only 700 volts instead of 700 plus.

  • Quotes

    • (After fighting a fire in a burn house)
      Rick: I don't know what these guys [Firefighters] make, but they should make more.

    • (Summarizing the Convervatives' start)
      Rick: Stephen Harper, to give him credit, has set the adgenda since day one. Day one he came out swinging and made it loud and clear that his number one priority was that he, Stephen Harper, was against gay marriage. Geez. Thanks for the clarification there Stephen. We get it. Despite the poofy new hairdo, the full makeup and the mock turtlenecks ... you're not gay. Let it go.

    • (Summarizing the Liberals' start)
      Rick: The Prime Minister of Canada, starts off the campaign of his lifetime, by actting hurt because the Tories said the Liberals are in bed with Organizaed Crime. Paul, I hate to break it to you brother. Nobody cares if people call you names. In fact everyone in Canada has used far worse words to describe the Liberals than anything Stephen Harper is allowed to say on television in prime time.

    • (Recapping the first week of the election campaign)
      Rick: All I can say is this: Wow! What a pack of arse holes.

    • (Canadian Tire Ad)
      Tom: What's that Bob?
      Bob: It's an electric Canvasser Prod, new from Canadian Tire.
      Tom: Canvassser Prod? How's that work?
      Bob: Just like a cattle prod, just 700 more volts.
