Cultural References[]


  • Throughout the episode, Charles and Jake all say David Paymer's character's name is "Dr. William Tate". Even the name tag on the character's office door was "Dr. William Tate". In the credits, though, the character's name was written as "Dr. Frederick Tate". In addition, Jake and Charles discuss Tate as a "psychiatrist" in the opening scene, but the office door reads "psychologist."
  • In the scene where Terry calls his wife to confirm to Amy that their sex life is going fine, you can see Terry pretending to dial his wife's phone number while the screen already shows he is in a call.
