Trivia

Near the end of the episode, when the girls are in a diner, the exterior shot before the beginning of the scene is of "The Roadside Diner" (its real name) which is (as of 8/2012), and has been in business for decades. It's in Wall Township, New Jersey, a few miles outside of Farmingdale, NJ, just west of the Collingwood Circle. It's been the location for scenes in several movies over the years. See more »
