Trivia

While this episode was clearly inspired by Animal House (1978), the title "Wheels of Fortune" was likely taken from the song of the same name that appeared on C.W. McCall's 1979 album "C.W. McCall & Co." The song describes the life of an independent trucker and the chorus is "(Gotta keep these wheels) Wheels of fortune rollin' /It don't matter where we're goin' / East or west or south to Tennessee /(Gotta keep these wheels) Wheels of fortune movin' / Keep on truckin', keep on movin' / Gotta stay ahead of the finance company."

Quotes

Mushroom: [after B.J. has dramatically exposed the crooked gambling operation] It worked fantastic, right out of a Humphrey Bogart movie.
BJ McKay: Yeah. Now comes the Claude Rains part: "Hey, Rick, I'm closing you down one table at a time."
