  • Trivia

    • The bird that was used in the episode was not, actually, a bald eagle. It was an african fish-eagle.

    • When Drew was showing Kathy his photo album, he mentions that he met the Blue Man Group. This was a reference to the episode "Drew Live III," in which the Blue Man Group guest-starred.

  • Quotes

    • (Oswald accidentally sprays Lewis with an eagle pheromone, causing Drew and Oswald to run inside, locking Lewis outside to fend for himself)
      Lewis: Open the door! Open the door, for god's sake!
      (the eagle does not appear to be attracted to the pheromone Lewis is wearing)
      Lewis: What, I'm not good enough for ya?
      Drew: If the eagle didn't show, then what does it attract?
      (Lewis is suddenly attacked by a pack of squirrels)
      Lewis: Help! Help! Let me in!
      Drew: (speaking to Lewis through the door) You know, I'd run for cover, if I were you.
      Lewis: Why?
      Drew: Because eagles eat squirrels.
      (the sound of the eagle swooping down can be heard and Lewis runs off with the squirrels still on him)

    • (Drew is talking to Oswald about his date's dog)
      Drew: My date brought one of those ugly Pugs, the buggy-eyed ones that look like the one in Men in Black.

    • (A couple of birdwatchers are videotaping Drew's house to observe the eagle on his roof)
      Drew: Have you been videotaping my house all day?
      Hofna: Well... you know, more or less.
      Drew (muttering to himself) I got to start wearing a robe.
      Hofna: I would highly recommend it.

    • Oswald: I used our car money to buy the cookie recipe.
      Lewis: You used our car money!?
      Drew: You guys are saving up for a car?
      Lewis: No, the money is in the car. It's the only thing we own that has locks.

    • (After Drew tells Oswald and Lewis their idea to sell cookies is a bad idea)
      Lewis: All rise for Judge Mental!

    • Oswald: Lewis, I have something in this bag that will change our lives.
      Lewis: It's not lipstick and blush again is it?

    • (Drew and his pals arrive back at Drew's house to find out the eagle has broken through the window)
      Oswald: Oh my God, Drew!
      Drew: Don't worry. There's nothing valuable the eagle could des- hu! My Beanie Babies!

    • Mimi (when she first sees the eagle): I haven't been this close to an Eagle since I slept with Joe Walsh.

  • Notes

    • The baking oven Oswald and Lewis is using is actually from Subway. The logo is blacked out.

    • Craig Ferguson does not appear in this episode.

    • Mimi says that she hasn't been this this close to an eagle since she slept with Joe Walsh. Joe Walsh has appeared once on the show as himself and many other times as the character Ed.

    • This episode was billed as "unscripted." The actors made up their own dialogue based on a brief story outline.

  • Allusions

    • Drew describes his date's dog by referring to the character of Frank the Pug from the Men In Black film series.
