Guest stars/Recurring castEdit


  • Peg is pulling back the sheets of the bed and finds one of Al's socks. She picks it up and throws it up in the air, but we never see the sock come back down. She likely threw it over the wall of the set.


  • Steve makes Al "aware" that he already got him into trouble with Marcy on the previous episode "Pilot"
