Upon arriving at the lodge to interview the guys, Ray and Robert realize that the other lodge guys hate Frank. Since they couldn't get any kind words about him, they interviewed the lodge guys about chocolate and ended up heavily editing the video to make it seem like they were talking about Frank.
But when the short video is shown at the party, Frank is upset when it becomes evident that everybody hates him.
When Garvin sees Ray, he raises his arms to cheer and says his famous line "Hey, Ray's here! Hahaaa!"
Actress Patricia Heaton was pregnant at the time of filming for this episode, so she only appeared in one short scene at the end of the episode.
This is the first time the lodge is shown.
This episode is one of the very few times there is an emotional scene between Frank and Marie.
