The Parents Television Council™ criticized CBS for this episode because it contained dialog about bestiality and having sex with vegetables. The PTC also called on all sponsors of that episode, asking whether they knew of the graphic content ahead of time and whether such content accurately reflects their corporate values and brands.
Alan: It's nothing. I just had to have a rather embarrassing conversation with Judith yesterday.
Evelyn: More embarrassing than when you were eleven years old and I caught you with the dog and the peanut butter?
Charlie: You went and did that too?
Alan: You told me it's what the cowboys did on a cattle drive, and I didn't have a cow!
Charlie: Is that why you got rid of our dog?
Evelyn: I couldn't look at him anymore.
