  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • George: I think that ass Emile Coué used to say, "Every day in every way, I am getting better and better."

    • Claire: Light from a cake is such a great light. We should just live in cake light!

    • Nate: Time flies when you're having fun, huh?
      Nathaniel Sr.: No, huh-uh. Time flies when you're pretending to have fun. Time flies when you're pretending to love Brenda and that baby she wants so much. Time flies when you're pretending to know what people mean when they say "love". Let's face it, buddy boy, there's two kinds of people in the world. There's you and there's everybody else, and never the twain shall meet.

    • Maggie: I know that if you think life's a vending machine where you put in virtue and you get out happiness, then you're probably going to be disappointed.

  • Notes

    • The Song George and Billy sing at Nate's Birthday Party (sitting on the steps) is "Daddy Sang Bass" from Johnny Cash.

    • Music: "Speed of Sound" - Coldplay
      "Rebellion (Lies)" - The Arcade Fire

    • This episode did not end with the traditional fade to white. Instead, it just cuts to black.

    • In the opening teaser, the card reads 1909-2005. At the funeral home, the deceased's friend mentioned she died just short of her 95th birthday. Her birthday in 2005 would actually be her 96th.
