Episode Notes
The Robotussin scene was a reference to Chris Rock's album Bigger and Blacker, in which he talked about the ubiquitous curative properties of the well-known cough medicine, comically listing absurd examples like treating a broken leg with it.

This episode was in memory of Ray Cymoszinski who died 25-12-2005 of a heart attack. Ray Cymoszinski was the sound mixer of this show.

We learn that Julius' nickname with his work buddies is "Herc," short for "Hercules" because of his strength.

For the first time, Chris experiences his father curse in front of him while he is on the job, but all the viewers get to hear is a loud horn honking.
