NOTE: A glitch was just recently pointed out to me by Eric Wilks. I had listed the original air date for this episode as 16 Jan. Well, every network's programming that evening was preempted for the start of something called "The Gulf War." Gee was it that long ago? Anyhow, the first episode of the season was delayed and shown a week later.
Kyle Westphal notes that George wants his books back, only later we now that George will do anything not to read. Such as in The Couch. He mentions that Books on Tape have spoiled him The Fatigues. Perhaps he will changes his ways when he says he'll read a book cover to cover in The Summer of George. I doubt it.

Viewer Joe notes that the actress who plays Marlene is this episode is also the same actress who played Kelly that pretends to have a boyfriend when George mentions how he likes horse manure in The Soup
