  • Bud tells Kelly that he used the money for bowling lessons to instead buy a lifetime pass to the Pussycat Theater, a chain of adult movie theaters based in California that were popular from the 1960s to the 1980s. As of 2003, only one still remains in existence.

  • Among other errors on the bowling score sheet, Al is shown with a 140 in the 7th frame. The scorecard shows he bowled a strike in the 8th and a spare in the 9th. In the 10th frame, with the game on the line, he bowls 2 strikes and a zero, which would give him a total score of 200. A few minutes later in the episode, Al says "I still bowled a 175!"
  • Bud tells Kelly that he has a lifetime pass to the Pussycat Theater. Besides the obvious fact that he is a minor and would not be allowed inside in the first place, the theater chain never expanded outside of California.
