Trivia

The episode has a cold opening of Bill challenging Sam and Neil that he will consume a small quantity of a mixture of anything edible if they will each give him five dollars. Sam and Neil come up with a disgusting combination of cayenne pepper, mustard, pickles, salt, sardines, vinegar, soy sauce, chili, jelly, dairy creamer, and mints that they mix into a blender, then give to Bill to eat. Bill wins the payment by drinking up the small quantity as specified in the bet. Bill comments, "It's not bad". Then, to Sam and Neil's disgust, Bill continues drinking the shake even though he doesn't need to as Bill has already won the challenge. In real life, the shake that Martin Starr drank during taping was a shake made up of Slim-Fast, marshmallows, and pieces of cookie.
