Episode Notes
The episode "The Reality" was supposed to air, but instead they showed this.

This episode properly introduces Jazmine, although she appeared in "The Trial of R. Kelly".



Episode Quotes
Huey: They'll rape you that's what their gonna do.

Rummy: Well no we ain't find none. But I always say the absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence.
Riley: What?
Rummy: Simply because you don't have evidence that something does exist does not mean you have evidence of something that doesn't exist.
Riley: What?
Rummy:: What country are you from?
Riley: What?
Rummy: What ain't no country I ever heard of. They speak english in what?
Riley: What?
Rummy: English mother f***er! Do you speak it?
Riley: Yeah.
Rummy: So you understand the words I'm saying to you!
Riley: Yeah.
Rummy: Well what I'm saying is that there are known known and known unknown. But there are also unknown things that we don't know that we know.
Riley: What?
Rummy: Say what again! Say what again, mother f***er! I dare you! I double dare you! Say what one more time!

Judge: For the price of selling four bootleg copies of the movie Soul Plane, the defendant is sentenced to two weeks in prison.



Episode Goofs
According to Rummy and Ed, the store clerks shoot Frank, but you can clearly see that the bullets that hit him are coming from Ed and Rummy's direction.



Cultural References
Gin Rummy quotes Jules Winfield from Pulp Fiction. Both characters are played by Samuel L. Jackson.

Judge: For the price of selling four bootleg copies of the movie Soul Plane...

This is a reference to the movie Soul Plane, a movie starring various rappers and Kevin Hart, and how it was extremely bootlegged. Soul Plane was so badly bootlegged, that it was taken out of theaters early because no one went to see it in the theaters. On bootleg, the movie made more money than in theaters.

Gin Rummy is a spoof of Secretary of State Donald Rumsfeld, just like Ed Wuncler III is a spoof of President Bush. Rummy quotes Rumsfeld (the absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence) and seems to be named after him (Rummy is one of Rumsfeld's nicknames).

This episode has many references to the handling of the war in Iraq. The police officer represents the UN, who, threatened by Ed III (taking the place of Bush), is able to see the non-existent weapon. The storekeeper is based on Saddam Hussein.

Also, although the bad guy (Osama) is just up the road (Afghanistan), they feel the need to go get a drink (oil, Iraq). Hence the shootout.
