  • Trivia

    • In his rec room, Kyle Polsky is seen to have a modern Double Diamond slot machine, often used in conjunction with the MegaBucks progressive jackpot. However, private ownership of a slot machine less than 25 years old is prohibited in Illinois, and he would likely be unable to even get one shipped to him.

  • Quotes

    • Bill: The paintball reminded me of '91.
      Kyle: You were in the gulf war?
      Bill: No, Judy made me paint the garage. It was a dark time.

    • Brian: (examining mail) Just bills and junk mail.
      Bill: Do the bills say, "Final Notice?"
      Brian: No.
      Bill: Then it's all junk mail.

    • Judy: (to Kyle) Before you came along, I had a husband who was at least as good as a trained monkey.

    • Judy: When is that stupid university going to get back to Brian?
      Linda: Since I just found his application in your pocket, I'm gonna go ahead and say 'never.'

    • Bill: Judy, sorry I forgot to pick you up. Is it 3:00 already?
      Judy: I wouldn't know. Someone stole my watch on the bus.

    • Bill: Thy ass art made of candy.
      Kyle: Then you'll enjoy kissing it all the more.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Complaining about menial tasks, Kyle says, "chores, what are they good for?" Bill follows up with "absolutely nothing," completing a double team allusion to the chorus from Edwin Starr's 1970 song "War".

    • When caught at Kyle's house by Bill, Fitz tells him he's the new "Goose" flying wingman for Kyle. Goose (Anthony Edwards) was the call sign of Maverick's (Tom Cruise) partner in Top Gun.

    • Seeing Kyle in his suit of armor, Judy refers to him as "the one with no heart," a reference to the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz. She continues by saying her husband must be "the one with no brain," likening him to the Scarecrow.
