Did You Know?


In the restroom at Julio's, we briefly see a prominent graffito in ungrammatical Spanish. It is a translation of an offensive couplet that rhymes in English though not in Spanish. ("Here I sit, bowels flexing', giving birth to a baby Texan.") The same inscription, in English, was seen by Andy on the first episode of season 4, on another bathroom. See more »


(at around 30 mins) Nancy sits down and drinks a bottle of beer. She finishes almost half the bottle. When she puts that bottle back on the table, the bottle is still 3/4 full. See more »

The Cheese Girl
21 August 2009 | by Sandman-68See all my reviews

The cheese girl is Lisa Something-or-other (she never aid her last name), played by Julie Bowen. Julie Bowen is THE reigning Goddess of Beauty on this planet. Helen of Troy would be a distant second-best.

I would go on about Miss Bowen, but it would just run into rant, and I would drool on my keyboard.

You can see Julie in reruns of "Boston Legal," seasons 2 through 5, and "Lost," season 2. I think she was Jack Shepherd's wife, who was killed in a car wreck. She was in "ER" briefly, in 1998 and 1999, in an episode of "Dawson's Creek," and apparently was a regular in a series called "Ed," which I've never heard of..
