  • Trivia

    • When the flashback of the scene in which executive producer Anthony Ross tells everyone that the frog is dead plays, close-captioning credits the line to Sean. (Sean Travis, director, apparently)

  • Quotes

    • Eleanor: You can take your pearl necklace and your half-hearted locket and shove it up your (bleep).
      Announcer: Did he? Find out now on Joe Schmo 2.

    • Ingrid: I see Tim --- his head sort of falls in his hand. And there's this realization: Oh my god. Psycho Man is coming back.

    • Announcer: Later on Joe Schmo 2, the most twisted eviction twist in reality show history.

    • Cammy: All right, let's see Amanda's --- Amanda does a really good impression of Derek.
      Amanda: (with her best British accent) Your lives are going to be over after this evening if you're sent from this house. You can pretty much guarantee that you will have no point in living anymore. Let's get on with the ceremony. Cheers everyone. Smiles.

    • Tim: Who the (bleep) has a pork and beans fetish?

    • Amanda: Bryce, I was going to kill him.
      Bryce: T.J., it's Bryce. You're invading her space. Just, like, lean back a little bit.

    • Tim: Are you wearing anything under that skirt?
      Cammy: No. I try to do that as often as possible.

    • Bryce: You killed him by giving him a donut?
      Cammy: It was a maple bar. I love maple bars.

    • Amanda: T.J. is very sexual. I keep thinking maybe there's a little bit more, but I... I don't know if there is.

    • T.J. : No, birds eat frogs. I don't care.
      Bryce: No, I care! Because it was not a frog, it was a human (bleep) being! It was my pet! You killed it!

    • Tim: The falcon twist of this whole thing was that the falcon ate the frog.

    • Derek: The falcon has spoken, so let's begin. Love, it's why we're all here. But tonight, one of you will be giving up your seat in love's luxurious first class section and instead be cast out into rejection's middle seat in coach. Welcome to the Pearl Necklace Eviction Ceremony.

    • Tim: I can't believe I just fell into the drama trap.

    • Derek: All right, Tim. Austin has made his decision.
      Tim: Yeah, I'm saying goodbye, pal. I'll say you good-bye later.

    • Austin: Gerald, may I give you a pearl necklace?
      Gerald: Absolutely.
      Austin: You don't get a kiss.

    • Gerald: I know you can only give three pearl necklaces tonight, but I can say quite honestly there is nothing in this world I would rather have than a pearl necklace from you.

  • Notes

    • "Cruiser" is Tim Walsh's (Joe Schmo's) nickname for the Bryce character (The Stalker), and in this episode, he returns. Piper, The Bachelorette, evicted Bryce back in "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner."

    • Tim's use of "Cruiser" is a reference to a psychotic character from the movie Stripes.

  • Allusions

    • Tim: If I don't see you guys: good morning, good afternoon, good evening and good night.
      After he is evicted, Tim reveals that he is fully familiar with the The Truman Show as well. He blurts out a near-duplicate of Truman Burbank's (Jim Carrey) favorite line in the movie: "Good morning! And if I don't see you: good afternoon, good evening and good night!" Presumably, Tim says the line as a sign of leaving the semi-ficitonal world of reality TV with its planned activities and going back to his real life, as opposed to suggesting that he believes the show is fake.

    • Tim: I think this is the Jenga piece that we're about to talk about right now.
      Tim compares telling Bryce about the death of his prized frog, Everett, to pulling the last block from Jenga tower. In Jenga, the object of the game is to build a tall tower using blocks and then take turns removing blocks until finally the tower falls.

    • Cammy: She kind of reminds of you Rainbow Brite.
      When everyone is giving T.J. things to say during his date with Piper, Cammy tells T.J. this. Rainbow Brite was a 1980s cartoon and also a toy line.
