Jerri secured a "$37 Midnight Special at the Horizon Motel".
The license plate on Jellineck's Pacer said "R-TIST".
Jerri's middle name is "Antonia". Amy Sedaris has said that when she created her character for "The Way After School Special" (as "Strangers With Candy" was originally going to be entitled) she was to be named "Jerri" or "Toni", so "Geraldine Antonia" includes both choices.
Sara gave the Donkey a record "4½ foot toss".
Jerri said that the office smelled like "a seafood paella".
Even though the Blanks had two different cars in these episodes, their license plate for both vehicles was the same: "79-69SDH".
Coach Wolf was discussing "trowelling". Did she try this on Carlos, the pizza guy? That would explain the lovely plastic flowers he sent the next day.
Noblet gave Jellineck "a buck knife" for their upcoming weekend together. Cherri gave Geoffrey a charm bracelet later. Chuck made homemade jerky, but didn't get the chance to share it. Chuck later read a passage from Leviticus 20 at dinner, but did not have it framed. No condoms were harmed during the filming of this episode.
Noblet could see that Jerri was in danger of failing his class by "the third day" of the school year.
"Amber" remarked that the hot fruit made her lips numb, while "Paul" had already departed on his little "trip" and planned on taking Shelly with him.
Dizzy was worth about 70 G's on the black market, but twice that ("$140,000") if the eyes stayed blue.
"Mr. Singh" came looking for the rent money, but didn't appreciate the potential value of Jellineck's self portrait. "Crumple, crumple, crumple."
Guy left his cassette player on "the Ass Blaster".
Noblet kept his grandfather's violin for himself and gave one made of "dry wall" to Jerri.
Jerri's response was "Planet Zoot". The hand-traced turkey was in response to the question, "What was the capital of France during the Nazi Occupation?"
Alan was from "Morehead City". In his book Me Talk Pretty One Day, Amy's brother David mentions a North Carolina summer resort town called Morehead City where the Sedarises spent some family vacations.
Jellineck tried to get reimbursement for his purchase of a "ThermaFlare 5000", but Principal Blackman told him that he could "take it with". We later see Jellineck using the kiln in episode 2-10, "A Price Too High For Riches", to fire up his students' origami projects, and in episode 3-01, "Jerri's Burning Issue", to bake his phallic tribute to Pompeiian art.
"Bongles" is probably the most tragic clown ever mentioned on television, with the possible exception of Chuckles the Clown from The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and Ronald McDonald, the mass murderer of adorable cows.
Chuck suspects that the "Peruvian Shepherd" has been tampered with. Doesn't Seamus know that his father's toys are not playthings?
