Trivia

A funny line from this episode that turned out to be frightening in its foreshadowing is Fred's stating he will serve fermented Kool Aid at his church service. A little over a year after this episode aired, over 900 people died after drinking cyanide-laced Kool Aid at the People's Temple community in Jonestown, Guyana. See more »

Goofs

Quotes

Uncle Woodrow 'Woody' Anderson: Say, listen, what kind of wine you gonna serve at the services?
Fred G. Sanford: Well, we have to keep the expenses down, so we'll serve fermented Kool Aid. And after the services, we'll open the cash bar for the Hallelujah Hour.
