  • Trivia

    • The attendees at the Liars Anonymous meetings are: Wayne, Ryland (Colin James Liar), Marjorie, Paul, and four other members. Those four other members are played by Susin Nielsen (series creator and executive producer), Gary Harvey (series creator and executive producer), Ken Lawson (line producer for Robson Arms), and Daegan Fryklind (episode writer, and Robson Arms story editor).

    • Wayne: Look, I think we got off on the wrong foot. How 'bout we start fresh?
      Nick: As if a tsunami washed our past away?

      Nick and Wayne were friends in Pest Control; however, Wayne's lies became too much, and their friendship ended. One of the lies that Wayne told was that he'd rescued a young boy in Sri Lanka from the devastating December 26, 2004 tsunami, but was unable to rescue other members of the boy's family.

    • The music used in this episode was:
      Liar, Liar, (1965) originally done by the Castaways.

  • Quotes

    • (coming out of the building)
      Nick: Ah, this is a million times better!
      Hal: Cool breeze!
      Wayne: Cool Breeze! ...Used to be my graffiti tag, yeah, back in my b-boy days. It's kind of embarrassing. Holy sauna in there, huh? It's like a journey to the centre of the earth.
      Nick: And you know, 'cause you've been there, right?

    • Wayne: Time is so strange when you're in mourning. I lost a very dear friend almost a year ago. The big 'C'.
      Dawn: Cancer.
      Wayne: Corporate espionage... it's a long story.

    • Wayne: I know I was a jerk in the past, but I'm not that guy any more. And until the papers are signed...
      Dawn: Oh! You said you signed them!
      Wayne: Well, I can't, they're... at my lawyer's.
      Dawn: You don't even know when you lie any more. You've always embellished, but now, you're pathological.
      Wayne: No, I'm not. Give me another chance. We can start over... in Saudi Arabia. You know, I used to be Muslim; I could pick it up again... it's just like riding a bike.
      Dawn: We're not starting over in Saudi Arabia, Wayne. It'll be just like it is here: a hot place, filled with your lies.

    • (at Liars Anonymous)
      Marjorie: We're supposed to tell the truth sometimes, and other times, we're not supposed to tell the truth. I mean, a fib, a lie... I mean, if I have to tell him the truth about my credit cards, shouldn't I tell him the truth about faking it in bed all these years?
      Moderator: Baby steps, Marjorie.
      Marjorie (turning to 'Nick'): What do you think?
      Wayne: Me? Oh, I'm just here to support a friend... he must have bailed.

    • (pulling books off of his bookshelf)
      Wayne: Kant, Nietzsche, Foucault... never read 'em, never will! (he throws them into the trash)

    • Wayne: Uh, remember that time you said you'd never been with twins, and I said, 'I have!'
      Yuri: Yeah.
      Wayne: I lied.
      Yuri: So the part about them being conjoined...?
      Wayne: Also a lie.

    • Wayne: Hal! Apart from the fact that my name is Wayne, pretty much everything I've said to you has been total crap.
      Hal: Okay.
      Wayne: Oh, what the hell. My name is actually Dwayne. But the other kids teased me... 'dwayne the bathtub, I'm dwowning!' So I shortened it to Wayne. (he heaves a sigh of relief) Are we cool?
      Hal: Okay.

    • Dawn: You didn't grow these plants?
      Wayne: I grew them, I grew them, I just... I grew them with lies. See that plant over there? This plant bloomed when I told it I was in the MENSA Club! And the stupid plant believed me.

    • Wayne: Dawn was going to move to Saudi Arabia, she changed her mind... making a fresh start... here.
      Hal: Hm. Let me get this straight: she was going to take a job in Saudi Arabia, but you shaved off your... Surry landing strip, so now she's staying here?
      Wayne: That's right.
      Hal: You're going to let her do that?
      Wayne: Well, we're making a fresh start...
      Hal: Good one. As if any chick in her right mind would toss all that. Even you can't be that big of a jerk.

    • Wayne: You have to go.
      Dawn: What? What... what's happening?
      Wayne: Remember my friend who died of corporate espionage? I know too much; you're not safe here.

  • Allusions

    • Wayne: I can't help it; you've always been my girl, Dawn. (he kisses her wrist) Dawny. (he kisses her again) Delta Dawn.

      Delta Dawn is the title of a song by Helen Reddy. The song was a hit in 1973, and tells the story of a beautiful woman, known as Delta Dawn. She was used and dumped by a lying man, and then became mentally unbalanced; she now spends her life waiting for the man to return.

    • (Elvis tells Yuri that the owner won't buy a new boiler, and Yuri has to fix the one they have)
      Yuri: Well, you try finding parts; this thing... it's out of the industrial revolution.

      The Industrial Revolution was a period of major change in technology, culture and socio-economic circumstances in the late 18th century. The period saw the rise of machinery taking the place of manual labour; various historians place the shift anywhere from 1760 to the 1830s.

    • (about his plants)
      Wayne: This one thinks Trudeau is my godfather. This one thinks I slept with Nelly Furtado.

      Pierre Elliott Trudeau (18 October 1919 – 28 September 2000) was the Prime Minister of Canada twice, serving from April 20, 1968 to June 4, 1979, and again from March 3, 1980 to June 30, 1984. He was a charismatic leader, and very popular, particularly at the beginning of his leadership, and particularly with female voters. He was one of the youngest Prime Ministers, and his youth coupled with his personality spawned a furor that became known as 'Trudeaumania'.

      Nelly Furtado (December 2, 1978 - ) is a B.C.-born Canadian singer who burst onto the scene in 2000 as a wholesome pop singer. In 2006, she underwent an image change with the release of her album Loose and the single Promiscuous Girl.

    • The title of this episode, Wayne's World, is a reference to the 1992 movie of the same title, about two post-highschool teens who like to party.
