The name for "Buddha Sack" was originally meant to be "Busta Nut." FOX renamed him after claiming the original name was slang for sexual stimulation.

Episode Quotes
Hank: Sit down, son! They're not laughing with you, they're laughing at me!

Manager: Is she overweight?
Hank: Not by half.
Manager: Then that's not funny.

Bill: Shut up, you whitey!

Buddha Sack: Bobby, let me give you a little constructive criticism: You're not black.
Bobby: Oh. Okay.

Bobby: You're so lucky, Connie, you're ethnic. Joseph and I are just nothing. We're just white and boring.
Joseph: Yeah.

Hank: If you're looking for a real job, you ought to consider a career in propane. You know, this whole humor fad is pretty much on the way out.

Cultural References
Buddha Sack: Ladies and gentlemen, this kid's gonna be the white Rerun!

Rerun was a character from the old show, What's Happening!!

Buddha Sack: (to Bobby) Hey, Opie Taylor, get your butt up here on stage!

Opie Taylor was a character played by Ron Howard on The Andy Griffith Show.

Buddha Sack: That butt is the bomb!
Hank: Uh, thanks. (to the screen) Cut to The X-Files! Now! Go!
