Production Notes


  • Murrieta Animata gets it's name from Peter Murrieta, the program's producer.
  • Theresa's zit cure has a name. Its called, Zit Paste.
  • This is the final appearance of Miranda in the series.
  • Eva Longoria is mentioned four times in this episode.
  • In this episode, Jerry comments that Theresa is older than him by saying "Yah, like your mother." to Justin's older woman comment, but in the episode Journey to the Center of Mason, Theresa calls Jerry an old man and Jerry replies that he is only two months older than her. This can be considered a goof.
