Trivia

Joss Whedon connections: Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof from Angel (1999) played Penelope and Sandy Rivers in this episode. Denisof (Alyson Hannigan's husband and Buffy Co-star) also appeared in two other episodes as Sandy Rivers. See more »

Goofs

Penelope mentions having slept with Barney twice in the back of his car, but in "Arrivederci, Fiero" it is revealed that Barney doesn't own a car and in fact cannot even drive. However, Barney often lies to women and could easily have told her that some random car was actually his. They slept in the car; she never said that he drove it. See more »

Quotes

Lily: No, there's not crying in pause-land. Pause-land is a happy place full of popcorn shrimp mountains and buttersauce rivers!
