  • Trivia

    • In this episode, it's established that Sam is allergic to peanuts and could die from eating them, as Greg has to tell Tom when he tries to offer the kid peanut brittle. Yet, in "Jimmy Gets a Job," it's Greg who nearly kills another child when he gives him peanut cookies. If his own son could die from eating peanuts, why would Greg have tempting peanut treats in his house?
