Did You Know?


Heather Donahue, who plays Stacy Corvelli in this episode, is perhaps best known for playing herself in the 1999 movie The Blair Witch Project, which was thought by some to have been a true story of three lost student filmmakers documenting a witch. This is the final episode of the series to air on a Thursday at 10:30 pm before FX moved it to a new time slot. See more »


At around 39 seconds, Mac has the basketball and after he says "they are tribal", the camera switches to Dennis, and Dennis has possession of the basketball, even though Mac never passes it to him. See more »


Dee Reynolds: Well, I'm going to go, at least one pro-choice voice will be heard.
Mac: One? There was, like, tons of those chicks at the last one.
Dennis Reynolds: Which side had more?
Dee Reynolds: Oh, which one do you think? I one that cares about protecting womens bodies or the one thats run by the religious right?
Dennis Reynolds: Probably the side you're going to. I'm going to fight for the right to choose.

IASIP really handled the abortion topic in a unique way, humorous. While Mac and Dennis try to get laid at abortion rallies(the irony) Dee decides to actually voice her opinion, on the pro choice side. Charlie finds out he has a son, psyche! Really, the lady just wanted a good role model. But Charlie learns that the waitress is in the Big Brothers/Sisters program, so he lies and says the kid and him are part of the program too. Dennis originally on the pro choice side with his sis, but when he literally crosses the fence he gets locked in crossfire... of eggs. This episode is particularly funny because it's so out there, well, that's the entire show in a nutshell. But really, a great episode.
