Dennis' sex experience
  • The audience member who shouts "Jesus Christ" at Dee when she's on stage doing stand up, is actually Glenn Howerton. [citation needed]
  • There are illustrations in Dennis' memoirs book. Charlie was truly enjoyed them - really hard and very vigorously (like in "The Aluminum Monster vs. Fatty Magoo" episode).
  • This is one of the longest episodes of Sunny ever (together with 02x04, 02x10 and 06x11).
  • This episode (with production code IP04005) was supposed to contain a scene where Charlie and Dee were stalking the Waitress: here's how Dee learns about Charlie's "stalking notebook", and then she stealing it right BEFORE "Who Pooped the Bed?" (IP04007).
  • This is the second time someone's tried to achieve something by pretending to have cancer. However, due to Mac's ignorant execution, it fails immediately.
  • We first learned that Frank and Charlie sleep "ass-to-ass" in their bed in the episode "Who Pooped the Bed?"
  • The twins Sweet Dee sees in the hallway of Charlie's apartment complex is a reference to Stanley Kubrick's The Shining .
  • Dennis will actually attempt to make a movie of his erotic memoirs in the Season 11 episode "Dee Made a Smut Film".
  • The movie Mac and Frank see is Three Coins in the Fountain, which has throwing coins into a fountain to make a wish as a major plot point.
  • When Charlie hands Sweet Dee sleeping clothes he states there are no heating ducts in the apartment. In the episode "The Gang Squashes Their Beefs" Charlie explains that the heat is broken and Wang will not fix the heat until Frank pays him.


Dennis: (referring to his memoir) Charlie, what the hell were you doing with it?
Dee: Well, uh, since he can't read, I'm guessing he was masturbating to your pictures.
Charlie: You know what, what are you doing to me? Why are you doing this? You've been riding me, now your accusing me of things, and you just don't get it. You don't know why I do the things that I do. It's nuts! You don't know how hard I got it, Dee


Frank: This is some sweet smut! I'm all boned up over here!


Charlie: In case you have to pee pee, I got this for ya.
Dee: No wonder it reeks in here Charlie, you have open cans of pee everywhere!!!
Charlie: Eat one of these, you're gonna wanna huff a little glue and drink some beer...
Dee: This is cat food, Charlie...


Charlie: I have fifty cats howling outside my window because I have ten thousand rats running around my building!
Dee: Stop yelling, you're spitting cat food at me...
Charlie: I'm not an idiot, there's a reason to do the things that I do...


Frank: (while peeing into a tin can) Ocupado...


Charlie: Wake up! Let's go... Time to start the day, time to get up!!!


Dee: Howdy howdy howdy... How's everybody doing tonight? So you guys, whats the deal with those hands-free headsets that everybody's wearing in their ears? (retch) It's like hey everybody look at me, I'm one part robot and three parts asshole (retch).
Audience Member: Jesus, Christ!!!
Dee: I mean am I right or am I (retch) screw it....
