In flashback, we go back six years in time. Earl was going out with Jesse, but one morning, he woke up to find himself married to pregnant Joy. When Jesse tried to understand why she had been ditched, Joy punched her in the face, and she lost two teeth. After training for six years, Jesse is back in town, and she is after Joy. Earl tries to calm her down, but without success, so he has to hide Joy in a caravan. Joy then reveals how they got married, and strikes out number 45 - "Ditched Jesse to marry Joy" - for him, saying it wasn't his fault. Written by

Earl refers to Jessie's truck as a Suburban, but when seen from the side, it is clearly a Chevrolet Blazer. See more

I like that Wonderbug. I wish we had a car that flew.
I wish we had a car that didn't have to start with a spoon.
