  • Trivia

    • Thomas Pynchon makes a cameo in this episode. He is at the table when Tom Wolfe stakes his claim to any uneaten garlic mashed potatoes; this is just before Moe reads his latest poem, copied from an elevator inspection certificate. As in the episode "Diatribe of a Mad Housewife", Pynchon is depicted with a paper bag over his head, holes cut out for eyes, and a question mark drawn on it. This is a nod to his reluctance to be photographed in real life.
