Frank decides to have a garage sale. Among the things that Debra puts out for the sale is the kids old baby stuff. Ray is hesitant to sell the baby items because he's not sure if he wants more children. But Debra says they're done with having kids. So the discussion continues in the yard during the sale.
Robert's dog Shamsky makes an appearance in this episode.
The neighbor Mrs. Scarpula is mentioned a few times throughout the series, but this is the only time the audience actually gets to see her.
It's unknown whether or not it's meant to be a tribute to The Three Stooges, but at different times during the yard sale, Frank refers to Ray and Robert as "porcupines", "chuckleheads" and "numbskulls"...all of which were commonly used names/insults by the Stooges.
- Frank: "We're having a garage sale. No, no, better. Make it a yard sale. That's classier."
