Did You Know?

Michael Des Barres appears in this episode as Claude Clemenceau. He starred regularly on "MacGyver" (1985) for seven seasons as MacGyver's nemesis, Murdoc. Jared Padalecki portrayed MacGyver's nephew, Clay MacGyver, in an unaired pilot for Young MacGyver (2003) (TV).See more »
Factual errors: Louise mentions that "one of the Manson girls" gets the trailer her family will be using after visiting her father in prison on Thanksgiving Day. Charles Manson is housed in California's correctional (prison) system, as are any of the women who were convicted for taking part in his killing sprees. None of them would be in a Connecticut jail.See more »
Madeline Lynn:That was really distracting.
Paris Geller:Oh. Well, by all means, Madeline, you should point out to the faculty that their annoying custom of teaching is distracting you from more important things like nail filing and daydreaming about marrying Ryan Phillippe.
Louise Grant:Uh, he's already married.
Paris Geller:Then whatever strawhead actor isn't.
Madeline Lynn:This was bad. For the last five minutes, every single thing she said sounded dirty.
Louise Grant:Yeah, same here.
Paris Geller:Good God.
Madeline Lynn:I mean, reticulum? Come on.
Louise Grant:Plus, the golgi body. I mean, is it me or is that majorly pornographic?
