Two E&J Gallo products are plugged in this episode. Fred gives Grady a glass of his favorite drink, Ripple, which was a fortified wine that boasted a low price and high alcohol content and that enjoyed great popularity in the 1970s, but has since been discontinued. Later in the episode Grip brings over a bottle of Cold Duck to celebrate with his friends. Cold Duck, a reasonably priced Champagne with a concord grape base combined with red and white wines, also enjoyed tremendous popularity in the early 1970s. See more
