  • The song that Misty Day is playing in Lee and Roy's gator poaching camp is "Edge of Seventeen" by Stevie Nicks. It is the third single released on her 1981 album, Bella Donna.
  • Queenie refers to Madison Montgomery as "Sabrina the Teenage Cracker". This pointed insult is not only in deference to the fact that Madison is Caucasian, but also refers to the Archie Comics comic book series Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, which was also developed into a television series in the early 2000s.

Bloopers[edit | edit source]

  • In the last scene, the sound of a horn is heard. It is falling in pitch, but the taxi cab is approaching the two women. The physics of the Doppler Effect dictate that the pitch of the horn should rise as it approaches the women, and fall as it drives away. [3]

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • Madison Montgomery: Look, for the sake of peace among roommates... I'm sorry I killed your boy candy, okay?


  • Fiona Goode: I want you to tell me right now, how it is you're still alive after all these years and not some moldering corpse.
