- This is the second time we’ve seen Toby in a neck brace. The first time was in the Season 5 episode, Weight Loss, in which Toby injures himself ziplining in Costa Rica.
- The phrase “so you had a bad day” that Andy sings to Pete is from the song Bad Day by Daniel Powter.
- Roger is played by Michael Weston, who I remember as the terrifying hitchhiker that David picks up in the ‘Six Feet Under’ episode, “That’s My Dog” from 2005. He also played Simon, half-brother of Olivia Benson on ‘Law & Order SVU.’
- Pete’s ex-girlfriend, Alice, is played by Collette Wolfe.
